    Sath shri akal.

    in the Jaapji Sahib it says:
    aad sach, jugaad sach, ho bhi sach.
    True before the beginning, true now, and forever true.

    is this refering to God, or also Jot? the light of the Gurus. has this light been there before creation itself, or did it come afterwards?

    Jot is symbol of soul,which is eteranla and nothing differnt from God.

    We have our individual spirits or Hans.

    So it Akal,it Was Akal annd it will be Akal.All is apparnt and time bound hense false.Everything is true only with Akal and without Akal all is false.

    The question you should be asking yourself is:

    "If the answer went either way, would it really affect my life?"

    Dear Friend

    As I can understand

    The reference here is to AKAL ( God ) who is guru of Nanak Dev ji and also guru of sikhs
    In other words there is no difference in Guru and Akal and Shabad guru is menifestaion/form of Akal that we can precieve and interact .

    This becomes more clear through Gurbani in which our gurus and bhagats refer Akal ( God ) as guru again and again .

    So answer to your question is that Yes both AKAL and his Jyot ( Shabad Guru ) is eternal .

    There are people who will answer "yes".

    I am here to tell you that the answer is "no".

    To turn men into God is the most anti-Sikkh thing one can do.

    The dilemma arises when people mistake the term "satguru" (God) for "guru". You're in for a world of hurt if you do that.

    Dear Freind

    Sorry for the Confusion

    No I never meant that , Nanak is God

    I just meant that Our guru is AKAL Purakh was Akal Purakh and will be Akal purakh and body was never guru


    Iam also including One more post on similar issue and Vijaydeep Singh has explained it in his words
    Gurfateh
