    Some comments for consideration. The article starts with a tuk from Japji Sahib Pauri 21. I have tried to give my translation below in italics blue,

    Pilgrimages, rigor body discipline, mercifulness, giving alms
    Such who receive honor so miniscule
    Heard in the heart “of the creator”, so developed understanding and loved

    Internally have so thoroughly cleansed self
    All virtues in creator “in you”, I am nobody
    If not blessed with virtue, cannot so piously dwell in understanding of so
    Glorious immortal one you for all of worldly items, creation and the creator
    Eternal, enchanting, for ever joy ebullition in mind
    What times, what time of day, what lunar day, what day of the week
    What season, what month, when creation was created
    Pandits (Hindu scholar/Priest) did not determine the time, otherwise there will be a treatise
    Kazis (Muslim scholar/Priest) could not determine the time, or will have written in fashion like Koran
    Such a lunar day, day of the week, season or month the hermits did not figure out
    Creator who so created the universe, such knows so by self
    How can I say, what virtues, how to write and how to understand
    Guru Nanak all living try to say, one smarter than the other one

    Grand master, greater eminence, happening as of such.
    Guru Nanak one who by self intelligence claims knowledge, hereafter does not find honor.

    The article unfortunately introduces the following,

    Concepts introduced: Ishwar and Prabhu as separate entities.

    However for Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji an example as follows debunks anything special for anyone so named and creator is above all and inclusive of all.

    So I find foundationally the article misleading and perhaps incorrect. From some recent posts at spn and dialog it appears that such mis-information (my observation and I could be wrong and stand corrected) is taking hold if not being actively promoted.

    The end objective seems to be to associate, create association with Hindu deities in ways anti Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Guru ji used Hindu deity names for dialog and illustration and gave them no superior or close relationship to one creator.

    Sat Sri Akal.
