    what I thought after reading your post is
    I dont have answer But one thing I can say is that from my experiences and understanding is that
    KNOWING someting has never satisfied me its just assurance to calculating brain , a milestone but I have never been satisfies with just knowing somethiong ,
    So do you think knowing GOD will be right approach??

    Dear Khalsa ji

    I think knowing God comes only when one becomes one with him or vice versa. I think there would be no other way and hence is different from knowing everything else.

    Respected Khalsa /Gill sahib/ Amarsanghera jeo,

    The only way that we can come to know of HIM will be possible if HE HIMSELF permit us to let HIM know.It is a sort of voluntary grace. There seems to be no other route as per my little understanding. Either we have to rise upto HIs level or He will have to come down to our level ,both of which seems an impossiblity.We can get acquainted with HIS attributes as per that is indicated in Gurbani.That is the way I see.

    Regards

    Love God as the Sheldrake in the fable loveth the sun;
    It sleepeth not for a moment:
    At night when it cannot see,
    It considers the Beloved, who is close to be far. (Sri Raag)

    HE is now on our level, "close to be far". we are the ones who "consider" but "cannot see."
     
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!
