Sat Sri Akaal,
Can "Shabad" be restricted to language information or translation
"Shabad" has other perspective vision of knowledge
Like literal is Hindi/ English/Gurmukhi etc. or its translalation
other perspective related to the same word.
Each "Shabad" or "Word" contains "Worldly" Objective experience and Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/gurmat-vichaar/37340-understanding-of-shabad.htmlReference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=37340
like science/legal/human/social/geogrophical/historical/ etc
"Shabad" if understood as the whole perspective one feels the difference
The same "Shabad" reflects a lot.
One own's mind has all perspective planes,
Mind reasons from the perspective for which one has worked
Other perspective views though existing don't respond
And one contradicts
For "Learner's" or "Sikh" mind shall be open
to understand "GURU's BANI"
Though learning is "Akshar Gyan" knowledge of "Word"
But as a whole or literal only. In a single line conversation with a saint
Saint got information of
"Religion/ Ancestral/Medical/ Genetic/ Geographic/etc" background of a person
Realise Power of "Shabad"
Listen "Shabad" with open "Mind" when
one is with people of different perspective
