Thank you for your reply. And I agree, the core of Gurbani is not about getting lost in this chase or that, but to aid and guide that ongoing internal record that we are each aware and responsible for.
However, what is acknowledged in Gurbani deserves explanation, and I asked for the sake of basic understanding. These may be outdated beliefs, but considering they are repeated DAILY, understanding what they are and more importantly, what they stand for, is important.Thank you for the thorough Chitr, Gupt explanation... and extending it to the real life examples of martyrdom in Sikhi.

Is there anything written on the various worlds??? I've heard their mention often... Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=36575
**Just a curious note, if these were outdated and rejected by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, why are they mentioned in Gurbani???
