    Guru Piayario Jios,

    Often we have misinterpreted Gurbani according to our own pre-set notions and background. Under this weight the Gurbani tuks that refer to "AMRITSAR" have been mistakenly taken to mean the PHYSICAL PLACE in North India known as Amritsar City and previously known as Chak Ramdass..Guru Ki Nagree etc.
    Our GURUS DID NOT ATTACH us to any Human Bodies, Dehs or Physical places as holy or unholy. Gurbani only serves to attach us to the GURU..Shabd Guru, Satguru and AKAL PURAKH..the CREATOR..the Timeless ONES without boundaries of time, place and out of Death.pain and destruction.
    Here is an attached PDF file from Sardar gurmit Singh ji Sydney on the various tuks that mention AMRITSAR and what they actually mean.

    Amritsar, Siftee da Ghar= The pool of nectar is full of praises of Ik Ong Kaar and it dwells within each and everyone of us.
    Now, how to find this Amritsar?

    SGGS, our only GURU says:

    Gaviaey suniaey munn rukhiaey bhao, dukh purhar sukh ghar lae jaey,

    "By singing the praises of IK Ong Kaar, listening to Gurbani attentively, understanding its message and putting the message attained into practice. Then only we can discover Amritsar within.

    All the Shabads that mention the word HARMANDER penned by the Third Satguru, Guru Amardass Ji towrads the concluding section of SGGS make it amply clear that the Harmander and Amritsar are the HUMAN BODY and Akal Purakh dwells WITHIN US.

    How correctly you have summed up. Unfortunately, gurbani has been interpretatred literally. We need a proper interpretation of Gurbani so that our coming generation atleast don't blame us.

    Best regards

    Gyani ji, Naamjap ji or any other Singhni or Singh,

    Guru Fateh.

    I need your help.

    Could you please let me know how many times Akaalpurkh and Kartapurkh are used in the SGGS and give me the verses? Somehow, my search engine on this lap top does not work? I can not even get Gurugranth.org site open.

    Thanks & Regards.

    Tejwant Singh
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
