    Sat Sri Akal!

    I present for your reference the second paragraph of standard SGPC Ardaas:

    '... Then of Guru Angad, Amardas and Ramdas - may they be our rescuers!'

    '... Think then of Teg Cahadar, remembrance of whom brings all nine treasures. He comes to rescue everywhere. Then of the tenth Lord, revered Guru Gobind Singh, who comes to rescue everywhere.'

    What is meant by 'come to rescue everywhere'? I was wondering this today. Are we supposed to regard the Gurus almost as saints whom we can call upon to 'come to our rescue'?

    Is it acceptable to address an ardaas to a specific Guru?

    Also, I have seen this list on the Internet and wondered where it comes from and what truth there is in it?

    Each one of the ten Gurus represents a divine attribute:

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    That is why the ARDASS as given by Guru Arjun Ji Sahib in SGGS..TUM THAKUR..tum peh ardass..is so PERFECT that no one can raise the slightest doubts ( of the kind rasied by Ishna Ji )...unlike that First Paurree from DG that has seeds of doubt in the very first word..BHAGAUTI whose meaning is NOT what Bhagauti means in SGGS....it fails on the touchstone of Gurbani of SGGS.

    Yes they 'come' to our rescue when we recite their Baani. But for that it is important ki asi Baani Kanth kariye (we remember it by heart).

    my interpretation would be that they come to rescue by the information contained in the divine voices in our heads, the Gurus in my view live in our heads as guides to Waheguru and controllers of the thieves

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!
