    Hi,

    Basically, I wanted to know the meanings of:

    1. "mein apan bol na jaanda mein keha sab hukmai jiyo "

    2. "Jaise mein aavey khasam ki bani, taisda karin gyan veh lalo."

    I think they have been said by Guru Nanak and are a part of the Granth Sahib. What exactly do they mean and what is the implication?

    Regards

    rajeshm ji Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji or Gurbani study requires study of full shabads. Focus on a line here and there is actually a very dangerous trait and highly discouraged in philosophical discussion at spn. This practice is disdained into at spn.

    I am sure spnadmin ji will look after it :sippingcoffeemunda:

    If you want to pursue your curiosity about these line you can punch in lines/words in the following and it is a very easy to navigate site for inquiring minds,

    http://www.srigranth.org/servlet/gurbani.gurbani?Action=Advanced&Param=english

    Now going back to the overall message in Gurbani, Sikhism through teachings in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji does not believe in God's messenger as God is postulated to be in each of us and everywhere. Its discovery within and outside is the challenge.

    Sat Sri Akal.

    Thanks Ambarsaria ji

    You are right, and a full shabad should be posted. My reading was that rajeshm ji was asking for an interpretation of those lines. Not that he was trying to prove a point or make an argument. rajeshm ji would you kindly post the shabads in full. I often do that for forum members, but do not like to use transliterations as they are very variable and they make use of search engines punishing work.

    My own question is: What or Which Guru would you be referring to? Having the shabads will make it easier to answer my question and easier to discuss the answers.

    Things will go more smoothly if you post the shabads yourself. Thank you, spnadmin

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!
