    Every time I read sukhmani Sahib it makes my belief on 'God is All and All is God' stronger than before. It touches my heart.

    The God-conscious being is made so by God Himself.:u):

    Brahmgyani is the product Of God's will.
    Can the product ever be the same as the Producer?
    Never, atleast , so far as the creative potency is concerned.

    We are all the product Of God's will. Can we ever be of HIS size? All those lucky will merge with HIM and be one with HIm and become that one becomes after merging with HIM i.e God like but we cannot be HIM:)

    It has been stated by the members that I do misinterpret the Bani. However, one has to apply common sense at many places. The literal translation of the lines in 'stand alone' manner can be misleading.Gurbani, I am told is not easy to understand. Mere a reading once or twice will not serve the purpose.Like the beginners in Gurbani, I am learning.Yes, it is true I have doubts as I have not read the bani more than even once. There are many pages which I have not read.

    It does not empower any one to make fun. I am reproducing only that Gurbani states. I shall try to give as much objective an interpretation as possible.I also love my religion and my gurus like you do. Why should I misinterpret.? The same argument is valid for the other thread of NanaK dev ji.
    pwris prisAY pwrsu hoie joqI joiq smwie ] (27-9, isrIrwgu, mÚ 3)
    By personally experiencing the Personality of the Guru, one's own personality is uplifted, and one's light merges into the Light.
    ***********
    I do not know the meaning of guru in the context as stated above.It should be God. If one merges in GOD , one does not become GOD; it is like a drop of water mixing in the ocean; the drop is lost in the ocean and is one with the ocean.Can it be said that the drop has become an ocean; all that can be said that they have become one.

    Dear Sikh80 Ji,

    bRhm igAwnI ijsu krY pRBu Awip ]
    As I understand, Luck does not play any part is becoming Brahamgyani. It is true that Braham Gyan comes on its own but only when the person has prepared herself or himself for it.

    'The Sat' resides in all of us. Its expression in our being remains covered because of the vices and worldly desires we have acquired, this is like dust on the clean mirror. When we cleanse our mental faculties of all this dirt and purify our thoughts in a permanent manner, "The Sat' expresses itself in our being. This expression, as I understand, is Braham Gyan.

    This Gyan come to the person on its own when she or he has prepared itself. It is for this reason the word 'Aapee' has been used in the Tuk you had quoted in your post.

    If fact there is nothing call Luck in this world, those who are prepared and alert capitalise on the passing opportunity to succeed, while other who are not no say that she or he was lucky. Nothing is free in life, one has to work for the end she or he is seeking. This applies to spiritual work as much as in the material world.

    With love and respect for all.

    Respected Amar Pal ji,

    Instead of teaching something unconnected you should have, with your experience , clarified the things.We all know nothing comes free in this life not even spiritualty.One has to earn it. What is the connection with this post.?

    What you have stated means that there is something in Gurmukhi , has not been properly translated. Kindly guide us as to what is the correct meaning of the line and as a matter of fact the entire thread.
    Kindly guide .

    Dear Khalsa Ji,

    After having sent my last post, it came to my mind, why not contribute the way a member have suggested. I decided to share my understanding og the title of the post i.e. 'Brahmgyani Aap Parmeswar'

    We humans have Aakar, we are limited, which 'The Sat' is not. Yet humans by virtue of their intellect can see the truth of life and become 'God like'. I explain below how it can happen.

    'The Sat' is all the time working for its entire creation. As humans evolve spiritually, they too shed their vices progressively. They start working in a selfless mannar for the common good of the creation of 'The Sat'. Depending upon the efforts of the individual the extent of her or his reach can extend from a small group of people to the entire humanity and beyond that the all living entities and then the non-living features of our abode, e.g. protecting environment.

    The person who has reached the above mentioned state of spiritual evolution then works like 'The Sat'. In other words the person becomes an instrument of 'The Sat'. The person's ‘Akaar’ is human but his ‘Being’, which her or his ‘Nirakaar’ part is now like 'The Sat'. The ‘Akaar’ has lost its worldly attachments; it is now subordinate to its Nirakaar. In the life of this person ‘Nirakaar is in control and not the Akaar i.e. body which is driven by desires. This person is now one with Parmeswar.

    All this has happen because the person has understood the truth of existence; i.e she/he has become Braham Gyani.

    As I understand it for this reason Guru Sahib has said 'Brahamgyani Aap Parmeswar'.

    With love and respect for all.

    Dear Khalsa Ji,

    What you have qouted from Siri Guru Granth Sahib is absolutely correct. The intellect is not to be use trying to decipher 'The Sat, as the first line says, one cannot comprehend 'The Sat'.

    The second line tells us not to use our mental capacity to design clever tricks, as they do not take us towards 'The Sat'. By doing so we only fool ourselves.

    Yet this intellect gives us capacity to shift false hood from truth. It is because of this intellect our human life is different from the instinctive lives of animals. Guru Sahib has clearly said;
    'Huee prapat manykh dehuriya Gobind millan kee ------'.

    The intellect allows us to cleanse our thought process and create a mind mind that gravitate toward 'Godly life' That is why only when one is born in human form one can realise oneness wit 'The Sat'. It is for this reason I laid emphasis on the abilities that come to us from our intellect. Please keep in mind that intelligence and intellect are two different entities. One may be intelligent, but may have poor intellect. Intelligence gives the being ability to remember, acquire knowledge, solve problems but, intellect is a higher mental faculty that allows one to think very intenselt in abstract manner. Intellect is not a function od equcational qualification.

    Guru Sahhib has laid lot of emphasis on purifying the mind. As I understand with proper intellect one can create the basis for this cleansing process. This basis let you know what life is and gives the individual the necessay will power to start , continue and complete the cleansing process to aquire a pure mind.

    With love and respect for all.

    Gauree Gwaarayree, First Mehl:
    The mind does not die, so the job is not accomplished.
    The mind is under the power of the demons of evil intellect and duality.
    But when the mind surrenders, through the Guru, it becomes one. ||1||
    The Lord is without attributes; the attributes of virtue are under His control.
    One who eliminates selfishness contemplates Him. ||1||Pause||
    The deluded mind thinks of all sorts of corruption.
    When the mind is deluded, the load of wickedness falls on the head.
    But when the mind surrenders to the Lord, it realizes the One and Only Lord. ||2||
    The deluded mind enters the house of Maya.
    Engrossed in sexual desire, it does not remain steady.
    O mortal, lovingly vibrate the Lord's Name with your tongue. ||3||
    Elephants, horses, gold, children and spouses
    in the anxious affairs of all these, people lose the game and depart.
    In the game of chess, their pieces do not reach their destination. ||4||
    They gather wealth, but only evil comes from it.
    Pleasure and pain stand in the doorway.
    Intuitive peace comes by meditating on the Lord, within the heart. ||5||
    When the Lord bestows His Glance of Grace, then He unites us in His Union.
    Through the Word of the Shabad, merits are gathered in, and demerits are burned away.
    The Gurmukh obtains the treasure of the Naam, the Name of the Lord. ||6||
    Without the Name, all live in pain.
    The consciousness of the foolish, self-willed manmukh is the dwelling place of Maya.
    The Gurmukh obtains spiritual wisdom, according to pre-ordained destiny. ||7||
    The fickle mind continuously runs after fleeting things.
    The Pure True Lord is not pleased by filth.
    O Nanak, the Gurmukh sings the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||8||3||

    Sardara123 has already given you the answer. You are wise enough to understand it. I need not elaborate on it.

    Veer ji, a sadhu can only give you direction where one is/has gone wrong. He is not there to carry ones weight. Guru ji have for this reason stressed to take the company of a Sadhu / Gursikh. This too is again with His blessing.
    Guru ji says "Khelan kuddan Mann ka chao" No one has found their destiny by following the Mind so far. Keep enjoying your Mind.
