Does anyone know of any Gurbani which describes the shape of the world?

I know of the pankti in Sri Sukhmani Sahib which states the world has 4 corners

"nimukh mahi chaar kunt fir aave"

ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹ

Does anyone know of any Gurbani which describes the shape of the world?

I know of the pankti in Sri Sukhmani Sahib which states the world has 4 corners

"nimukh mahi chaar kunt fir aave"

Guru ji tells us in Japji Sahib ji:

ਤਿਥੈ ਖੰਡ ਮੰਡਲ ਵਰਭੰਡ ॥

तिथै खंड मंडल वरभंड ॥

Ŧithai kẖand mandal varbẖand.

In that realm there are continents, worlds and solar systems.

ਜੇ ਕੋ ਕਥੈ ਤ ਅੰਤ ਨ ਅੰਤ ॥

जे को कथै त अंत न अंत ॥

Je ko kathai ṯa anṯ na anṯ.

if some one tries to describe them, he should know that there are no limits or bounds of them.

ਤਿਥੈ ਲੋਅ ਲੋਅ ਆਕਾਰ ॥

तिथै लोअ लोअ आकार ॥

Ŧithai lo▫a lo▫a ākār.

There are universes upon universes and creations over creations.

ਜਿਵ ਜਿਵ ਹੁਕਮੁ ਤਿਵੈ ਤਿਵ ਕਾਰ ॥

जिव जिव हुकमु तिवै तिव कार ॥

Jiv jiv hukam ṯivai ṯiv kār.

As is the Master's mandate, so are their functions.

ਵੇਖੈ ਵਿਗਸੈ ਕਰਿ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥

वेखै विगसै करि वीचारु ॥

vekẖai vigsai kar vīcẖār.

The Lord beholds His creation and feels happy by contemplating over it.

ਨਾਨਕ ਕਥਨਾ ਕਰੜਾ ਸਾਰੁ ॥੩੭॥

नानक कथना करड़ा सारु ॥३७॥

Nānak kathnā karṛā sār. ||37||

O Nanak! to describe the realm of truth is hard like iron.

SGGS ji Ang 8

?? Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji

Aren't 4 corners the north/south/west/east directions?

I would assume the corners are a bit more complex than that, considering that from space it is a sphere.

On a few Angs, "chare kunda" is translated as the directions. But I'm not sure about " nimukh mahi chaar kunt fir aave" in Sukhmani Sahib ji.

For the planets to revolve on their axis ( day and night / divas and raat) and revolve around the sun to have four seasons, they have to be round/gol logically.

They can't be flat.

Extremely shocking how dumbed downed and fooled the average person is. You guys are going off doctored english translations and making up your own translations to fit the nasa globe model which is just a deception that you have all blindly accepted. You're trying to somehow align the religion of 'science' with the the ultimate truth  of Sikhi. Your not gonna get it. 

I suggest you ditch the brainwashing and learn to read gurmukhi and get the real arths of the words without trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. 

We live on a flat plane. The Sun and the Moon are lights that go around the Earth. The conflict is that people  have elevated 'science' to such a  supreme, untouchable  benchmark in their minds that they filter everything with that lens, which is what we are seeing in the above comments. People don't want to accept the truth if it challenges something so deeply ingrained within their minds

We live in an inverted world. Instead of questioning science, you want to question Sikhi and amalgamate it with lies?.

Your either gonna wake or stay sleeping. I'm out.

Can you provide Gurbani that says we live on a flat plane?

I don't know about Gurbani mentioning this ਧਰਤੀ being round, but we have simple science in baanis we read everyday.

For example, we have the tuk in Sohila Sahib:

ਵਿਸੁਏ ਚਸਿਆ ਘੜੀਆ ਪਹਰਾ ਥਿਤੀ ਵਾਰੀ ਮਾਹੁ ਹੋਆ ॥
ਸੂਰਜੁ ਏਕੋ ਰੁਤਿ ਅਨੇਕ ॥

Guru Sahib is telling us that time keeping and the seasons are based on the sun. For example, the year is defined by a complete revolution around the sun, and the seasons are determined by the tilt of the Earth's axis which causes less/more of the Suns's light to be applied, which causes seasons.

Flat Eathers are a joke, their conspiracies are full of inaccuracies and nonsense.

i would say, any shapes, and stuff about thousand lotus feet, is all describing the earth, in more ways than one, --- if youre looking for an exact answer, like guru saying the earth is round not flat, then youre looking in the wrong place.

    • What you see in kaleh is what happens when for decades there is no father figure in the home. Decades of fatherless children brought up by their grandmothers ( you will notice they are always brought up by their grandmothers,  their mothers are nowhere to be seen).    
    • The African American or even Afro-Caribbean have almost been bred to be physically stronger due several hundred years of slavery.  If you think about it, only the strongest and most resilient survived those slave ships across the Atlantic.  The hard physical work on those plantations have meant that they have passed down those genes through the generations.  The African origin black people in the Americans are also no longer pure black African.  There is plenty of European slave master blood in them after the slave women were taken and raped by their slave masters. This is the reason why they come in all shades of colour. You can tell the difference between black people of Africa and those from the Caribbean particularly in the UK. The diet that developed amongst the black communities of the Americas is based on the quality of food from the slave days. It was also foods not desired by the whites or food that was cheap like Chicken.  Ironically, like us folk from South Asia, the Afro Caribbeans and African Americans also suffer from high rates of diabetes and high blood pressure.
    • The overlooked or sometimes conveniently ignored aspect of their physiology is their diet, i.e. chicken and meat in general. I'm not being funny or stereotyping, but black people LOVE their chicken. Obviously, inhaling chicken all day and sitting on your behind playing video games is going to cause obesity in everyone, black or not, but certain foods coupled with an active lifestyle and perhaps a genetic predisposition to building and retaining muscle better than other races, also plays a factor. Testosterone (in natural) animal products is key. As a lifelong vegetarian I'm content and secure enough in my beliefs to acknowledge this truth. 
    • Bumping this up. Am thinking myself of moving from the UK to somewhere in North America as there is more land/open spaces, and some places a lot better weather (I dislike winters in UK).  And, weather can have a big impact on mood unless you are a complete Chardhi kala person. 
    • The youngsters themselves find themselves between a rock and a hard place. When they're growing up and perhaps vaguely aware of their fruity inclinations, it's a case of, "Why are you not in saroop?" from the religiously minded in their community. They then adopt the appearance partially through pressure and perhaps in the hope it somehow eliminates their leanings through some form of divine benevolence. When that doesn't happen and those proclivities increase with age, they find themselves exposed to incessant propaganda originating from their western host communities or the global propaganda machine which encourages them to embrace and accept their feelings, and at the same time people like us lambast them with stuff such as, "Why are you in saroop?!?" It's a no-win situation for them. Of course, I'm not seeking to excuse the degeneracy and the subversion taking place, but I just wish some of these people stepped outside of their own shoes for once, and realised how they're being used as pawns to further agendas that ultimately don't care for the individual. Humans have a desire to belong, and if they've spent most of their lives feeling alienated and misunderstood, they're obviously going to leap at the first group who extends a hand of understanding and tolerance. Most people are incapable or just aren't ready to accept or process anything beyond the material. That's life.
