Ok, so what this means is both these do not know God.

Bhagat Nam Dev said he has "seen the Lord". He has seen him everywhere, so he is telling us where to find him.

I interpret the Hindu God bit "saw Ram had his wife killed" to show that they are not Gods. They also did things a human did (eg killing someone). They are not without fault either, only God is without blemish.

The Hindu is blind because he see's God in an idol, the Muslim is one eyed because he says God is outside of the universe, but they cannot see Waheguru within. The Gyani is one who is spiritually wise and enlightened, of no religion (Bhagat Ravidas, Bhagat Farid etc.).

The Gyani is wiser as they know God is not far away or in a rock. Look within and you will find him, God is close and near. Everything is a projection of him. The others worship him in a temple and consider it the "home" of God e.g.: Mecca. Yet if God is everywhere, how can he be bound to one spot? So Bhagat Nam Dev is saying God is everywhere, not just a temple.

"na koi Hindu na Musalman" applies here. Fundamentally, there is no religion. God doesn't care about your religion. Just saying you're a Sikh won't get you anywhere.

In this shabad of bhagat Namdev, He underlines for us the teachings of Gurmat.

And as we know, from Gurmat we come to understand that Wahiguru Akal Purukh, is not to be sought or found in lifless things made of any of the again inert five elements: like earth(stone, paper, wood, iron, pilgrimages etc...), water, air, fire and ether.

All the world is going blinded by maya in the wrong directions, and thus do not find their objective, their goal...though they may reach heavens or Baikunt maybe.... but that is not the reality.

Because the only reality is Wahiguru Akal Purukh, Parbraham Parmeshawar, Paree Pooran Parmatma, who is beyond maya, kal and karmas...

Then he mentions that the spiritual teacher(Gurmukh, Sant Jan, Sadh, Brahamgyani), as being wiser than all others.

They are wiser because, they know where He really resides, and thus tell us to do the same. They tell us that if at any place He is to be found, it is only within you( Harmandir eheu sareer hae...). And the metod of transportation to Him, is through Nam only.

That is why the Bani says: Nanak, Nam jahaaz hae.

The main differences as seen in the Shabad of Bhagat Namdev, between Gurmat and any other religion or path, is that, while others try to find Him outside at different places and in lifless perisahbles things created by man himself...and Gurmat teaches us to find Him, in the real temple of God, which is this human body, made by Himself and where He has seated Himself, and that to reach Him, we need nothing made of this world, as all is mayavee, all is transient and perishable, but to hold and board on the only reality and truth which is His Nam.

And all this we do not come to know by ourselves, but we are thankful to Him, by letting us learn, something about Him, about His glory, in Sadh kee sangat, through Gurparsad.

This is His real blessing upon us humans.

    • No one said it was an amritdhari Sikh who used his kirpan to do this, bro. In fact, it hasn't even come out that the attackers were Sikhs (though 2 of the victims were). Even if the attackers were Sikhs, I doubt that they used kirpans.
    • Thanks for point this out. Though, there's also the fact that all Christians are not unified in that belief. It's true the Bible states that there are satan-derived religions, but that's different from saying a specific region is of the devil. Some Christian preachers make that connection. Other denominations (like Unitarians) explicitly reject that.
    • It's really sad that Christians go around to really poor people and dangle a morsel of of food over them and say, "Convert, and then I'll give you some food." They are taking advantage of people to meet their conversion target quotas dictated by their financial sponsors.
    • Interesting. Do you think with the decline of Christianity in the West, a day will come when the money for foreign conversion funding will dry up? Also, in the West, as people become more educated, they become less Christian. 11% of college educated in America are atheists, only 4% who are high school grads. Given that this is the case, after Indians (or Punjabis) who convert become better educated, do you think they will leave the the Christianity that their parents converted into?
    • Very Sad news , deepest condolences to their families may their souls rest in peace . I think we need a national / international database registering all amritdhari baptized Sikhs , detailing , when they took Amrit , there address when¬†baptized etc...¬†, and issue each with ID cards. So that sikhi is not targeted , hope i'm very wrong but the way kaljug is spreading in this world , whats stopping a dushman of sikhi , dressing up as a baptized sikh and misusing the articles of faith , especially the kirpan.
