    I've seen the word 'hirdah' translated as 'heart', 'mind', and even 'inside'. From the text in Gurbani I've looked at, it seems that this is a spiritual entity (somehow related to one's soul), as when Naam resides in Hirdah, one's soul becomes one with God. All of these terms (heart, mind, inside) seem to be physical things referring to the body...How would the word "ਹਿਰਦਾ" translate into English? Any thoughts on this matter would be appreciated.

    Bhul Chukk Muaaf,

    Personally to me hirda means the "inner self" or "soul centre" or "atma centre" where Waheguru resides and "vibrates" with and as a result of countless naam simran !

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!
