It is instructive to note the importance of reference to light in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. In conventional spiritual literature one comes across references to divine light as well. There appears direction of the pairing between light in each and every part of creation and the divine light (creator). Many times pairing is shown to indicate nearness, there is equality or sameness indicated and it is also mentioned as source and the final destination that is all light universal. I list couple of illustrative tuks/lines with reference to full shabads. The numbers represent how often the words appear in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji per Dr. Thind's tabulation files. What great contributions from Dr. Thind. ਜੋਤਿ (311) ਜੋਤਿ = ਗੁਰ: ਚਾਨਣ, ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ (creator); one light of creator Plurality: Singular Notes: This appears synonymous with phrase "ਗੁਰ ਜੇਤਿ" used by some as well but such is not used as such Overall the combined words below mentioned by some are not used in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji based on what I have discovered, ਗੁਰਜੋਤਿ; ਗੁਰ ਜੋਤਿ ਗੁਰੁਜੇਤਿ; ਗੁਰੁ ਜੇਤਿ ਗੁਰੂਜੋਤਿ; ਗੁਰੂ ਜੋਤਿ This flags that there is no point of nit-picking on this ਜੋਤੀ (100) ਜੋਤੀ= ਚਾਨਣ, ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ (all creation); all lights; individually in all Plurality: Singular Overall the combined words below mentioned by some are not used in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji based on what I have discovered, Notes: Overall the combined words below mentioned by some are not used in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji based on what I have discovered, ਗੁਰਜੋਤੀ; ਗੁਰਜੋਤੀ ਗੁਰੁਜੋਤੀ; ਗੁਰੁ ਜੋਤੀ ਗੁਰੂਜੋਤੀ; ਗੁਰੂ ਜੋਤੀ This flags that there is no point of nit-picking on these either What role this plays in your thinking, contemplation and understanding? The light for me means the following by self and enjoining, Wisdom Blessing Commonness Oneness Unity I would review my understanding of some shabads to facilitate understanding over time. What are your thoughts and comments? Sat Sri Akal Notes: 1. Idea for this thread comes from commentss of Prakash.S.Bagga ji in other threads regarding guidance by ਗੁਰ ਜੋਤਿ - Gur Joti as stated and referenced below. 2. The word ਜੋਤ/Joet appears once in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. It has much different meaning as to a tethered or stirruped bull.
