    In this series of questions the Sidhs ask about logical dependencies of beliefs and statements about life. They also ask how one could become wise.

    Let us review the following,

    Another dialog follows,
    Essence of Guru Ji’s answers:

    Guru ji state that fundamental to all is the seeking of wisdom rather than specific bits of knowledge or inquisitions. This is what is still prevalent in many people’s minds today whether Sikhs or otherwise. We get frozen in space with questions about to eat meat or not, name of the creator, etc., and we totally miss out that wisdom is much greater and cannot be stayed in deference to such distractions. Important as such questions are, these still are not important enough to snuff out the most important teaching of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as to always seek wisdom and remembering the wisdom to be sought is infinite.

    Guru ji go on to describe later in the above extract as how wisdom is what nourishes the soul. A unison and closeness so attained as more one acquires the wisdom the closer to creator's realization one gets.

    What you think?

    Sat Sri Akal.
