    I do not think it would be proper to initiate a new thread for this. At some places One come across some 'tuks'/lines in Granth sahib ji, that one cannot fit in the context. Will it be appropriate to ask the question in this thread. Being not very sure of this I am posting a line that is to be understood.

    The body of the five elements is dyed in the Fear of the True One; the mind is filled with the True Light.
    Is it the body that is dyed in Fear of The Lord? Should it not be the mind?

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!
