    What does "sarbloh" mean?

    And is there a Name of God in Sikhi for Divine Light? I know Jyoti for Light; is that then considered a Name of God in Sikhi?

    Sarbloh is iron. There is no name for God and all names are for God :tablakudi:

    The meaning of the word Sarab loh is ALL IRON.
    There is a group of Khalsaa Sikhs who wear items of Iron and make use of Iron Utensils
    for Cooking their food.And even eat the food in Iron Utensils.

    As per my understanding there is no concept of GOD in Sikhi.For Sikhs it is all THE WORD GuROO only.
    From this WORD GuROO is Created the ENTITY GuR being refered as EKANKAAR.This EKANKAAR is JOTi and all Names in Gurbanee are refered to this JOT{i} only.

    One can see this in Gurbanee that

    Sikhi is therefore all about focusing on GuR as JOTi /Prabhu or THE CREATOR.

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!
