I share below couple of great comments I got from gurmatbibek site regarding this question. 1. Grammar oriented 2. Essence and Reference Additionally I believe, from what I understand, the use of masculinity in General in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is such that the female persona did not become a point of illustration and possible misuse. Feminine or female persona was considered sacred and beyond reproach and so was the use of such not common in dialog or the conveyance of messages of Guru jis. This is just my observation and I apologize ahead of time in any errors. What do you think? Sat Sri Akal.
