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.

    • IF SILENCE IS GOLDEN, INNER SILENCE IS PRICELESS
      Reaching home after a long day’s work, do you request children and others to leave you with a few minutes of silence? Or when there is an argument or when we are in a noisy place, do you wish for moments of silence?  But even when we sit in silence, does the mind often make ‘noise’ by way of thoughts of the whole day - of worry, judgment, fear, pain or anger? It is very rare that it creates pleasant and peaceful thoughts that relaxes us. In those moments we realize that staying quiet is not the solution. The solution is to make our mind silent. We play our roles in this physical world through the medium of communication. But our original state is one of inner silence. Life feels pleasant when the mind learns to think slow and right. A silent mind creates fewer and purer thoughts so we experience contentment and peace.  Our original home is the Soul World (called Param Dham or Incorporeal world). In this world, we do not have bodies and we don’t even have thoughts. We are tiny sparkling point of light or energy. We live there quietly in the presence of God as peaceful souls. Even today find inner and outer silence very soothing because it connects us at a deeper level to our original form. As we the soul comes down into the physical world and take a body to play different roles, we come into action and interaction. Over thousands of years the mind gets fed with information, beliefs and experiences. It creates thoughts while we are awake … even when asleep. When thoughts clutter the mind, we find it harder to silence it although that is when we long to emerge our power of silence.   Unkown author

    • How so? Theyre currently in US custody. But are European citizens. US will obviously not take them back. Options are release them, let them sneak into Europe. Or, shoot them before leaving. 
    • Guru can definetely make us change our opinion,  and destination, if only, we turn out from manmukhs  and become Gur-sikhs. So the key for that desired transformation within us, is only, when one gives oneself  totally to Him. And giving oneself to Him totally is understanding what Guru Jee tells us through the  Bani, and  to follow it implicitly. That´s it. Then work diligently and honestly on it. So what is that to be done? Gurbani says: Ik Oankar Satnam, Satgur parsad Jap.  There is only one True Lord Satnam/Wahiguru/Akal Purukh, who is realized by His grace when we do His simran/jap. Prabh ka simram sabse oochaa Prabh ka simran man kee mael jaae. Prabh ka simran, garb na vaseh. The whole of Gurbani is nothing, but mahima of  One wahiguru Akal Purukh and His true bhakti. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
