    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.

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!
