    I agree alot of people identify a Mahpurkh simply because they have a large following, and i also believe that not all really are mahpurkhs. I would identify a mahpurkh as someone who you can see their love for Vaheguroo ji in their eyes. It is not about if they preach gurmat because anyone can learn what gurmat is and preach it, to identify a mahpurkh you need to fell their love for vaheguroo ji as the amount of love mahpurkhs have for vaheguroo ji is so much that it is just busting out of them.

    i will write more after there are some replies

    Singhstah, Thanks for initiating this discussion.

    In this discussion, I believe our talk is going to be about sants. As some people reserve word MahaPurakh as an attribute of Waheguru.

    Guru Granth Sahib ji (271) summarizes the attributes of a sant, hence the way of identification. This comes out to be seventh ashtpadi of sukhmani Sahib. Also it talks about what effects a saadh can put on us.

    Regards.

    Dear Singh ji,

    I already mentioned about sant's attributes, which are explained via Gurubani (271). Please have a look at that ang, and am just trying to learn via Gurmat.

    However personally, I feel Sant as the one who only talks/praises from heart, Waheguru and His creations.

    Just in case, online Guru Granth Sahib ji is not your side, please tell me so, I will try to locate the online source, for your kind comments.

    Thanks.

    We are all flowers in the garden of IK ONG KAAR. The best part of this garden is that no flower withers and falls but with the help of Gurmat nutrients-Grace-, we attain more perfume. So in my view, A Sant, A Mahanpurkh is the one who emits the most scent. As a flower needs no following, it emits its perfume in all directions without any discrimination, the same can be said for a Sant/Mahanpurkh. If a sant has a following then it is a paper flower with artificial scent hence has no room in the Garden of Akaalpurkh.

    Waheguru ji ka khalsa

    Waheguru ji ki fateh



    ‘Mahapursh’ is a person who not only have knowledge about Gurmat that he is capable of imparting to the Gursikhs but also lives his life according to that Gurmat. They are holy people who have conquered kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahankar.

    I believe it is due to some good ‘karma’ that we get in company of such people. When & if you ever meet a person, who people call ‘mahapursh’; invite that person home & live in his company for few days, you will experience something that I can’t describe here in words. If you do not then disregard what people say; just love and respect that person as another Gursikh; there is no need to judge someone’s avastha since we may not have eyes to see & heart to feel for what they have to offer.
