I suppose to clarify this argument, one would have to debate whether the Gurus themselves had special powers, or mystical abilities, I would like to think the Gurus were human beings that had understood completely the point of Sikhi, and endured everything that they did with no other abilities than are open to you and me, if that is the case, then the 11th Guru, the living book , surely would embrace a similar vein that promoted enlightenment through understanding, study and practical implementation of knowledge through action, I believe there is nothing further than this, I would be most interested in anyone who felt mysticism in Sikhi
Thank you Harry Veer ji ,I am glad that you clarified.Title of the thread and the content are in perfect sync. in so far as your initial post is concerned. One has the right to be wiser with passage of time. I am also bit wiser after doing this thread. The thread is instrumental in initiating me to have a deeper reading of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Thanks for this as well. Yeah, we retain the right to differ occasionally and those occasions would be few, I believe.
