    Allah is not located in one place, Nor Allah can be established in one place as mecca, nor can Allah be captured in any spot.

    Kabir ji, when he went to Mecca to see Allah, a voice from the sky asked him, "Who told you, I am only there?"

    So then for muslims who bow facing mecca...
    Why not they bow in the opposite direction of Mecca? Do you think God will be unhappy?

    For those, that don't know, Kabir Ji came during the time of Guru Gobind Singh Ji to get Amrit.

    When a pir, moved the feet of Guru Nanak Sahib ji in a direction away from the direction of Mecca. The whole of Mecca rotated in the direction facing Guru Nanak Sahib ji's feet.

    Allah has given many examples of this, throughout history, to make understand "only those" upon whom he has cast his glance of grace. That he is not in any direction or place or belonging to any particular religion or spot

    It is by the order/hukam of Allah, that some be deluded and some be given understanding, to the saints of Allah, all is dharma, all is right, all that goes on in the world, this is all hukam of Allah.

    When Namdev ji went to find a Guru, and for the first time, to see his Guru, he saw a person sleeping aimlessly on the floor with his feet on the shiv linga, the idol of hindus Worship.

    Namdev ji got infuriated and thought this man could not be my Guru, He immediately lifted the feet of the man, and when he looked for another spot to put his feet, all he could see was shiv lingas everywhere.

    The Realization came to Namdev ji, and then later on his Guru, made him one with all that exists, Allah.

    For those that don't know, One of the panj pyaras is Namdev.

    About God's name

    Look at this wonder, the creator has become the creation itself, God is nameless, why nameless?

    that thing or object or person, that is separate, we give it a name, for example, your friend, you give a name, because its not part of you, a table, or chair, is an identifying name for that object.

    Now for God, who is all that exists, who can name God? is there anyone outside of God, that can name God? Only that one can name God, who is separate from God.

    We all are within God, we have a name, because we are separate from eachother but all are within God.
    Our name is temporary, we come and go, God's name is forever existing, God is all that exists, we cannot name the whole being in which we all are, who is Beyond Time, past, present, future.

    There are many names of God, there is Allah, One God Mysterious, Ram, all pervading, Har, the absolute luminous one, and many more.

    These all are names of God, about the praise of God on one particular aspect.
    Now only God can give us one such name, that incorporates all his aspects, and by reciting of which we gain the merits of reciting all names of God.

    Now when God, the formless one, took a form as the True Enlightener, True Guru, to spread the truth to all. He did not call himself God, because he did not want people to worship him. He only came to give knowledge and then he left the World again, and made the formless Word of his message, The True Enlightener for all ages to come.

    Now what was the name, that such a beloved Guru would have given to humanity?

    SATiNAAM - TRUE NAME - This means the name of God is forever true, it is forever existing for all times to come. Whoever recites this name even once, gets salvation this is the true Gift to all. This name has all the qualities of all names.


    When we realize the messages of the Guru, We are filled with Awe and wonder at such a marvel, God as the True Guru has come to give us this divine knowledge( for all hindus, muslims, christians, to all and everyone). We go into ecstasies by repeated rememberance of God SATiNAAM, We praise the Guru, VAAHiGuROO. VAAHiGuROO and go into bliss.


    Importance of Praise of the True Name

    Now if you have faith in the True Guru, Listen to the following teachings, and do not go anywhere to look for what you need.


    Chanting, intense meditation, spiritual wisdom and all meditation
    the six schools of philosophy and sermons on the scriptures
    the practice of Yoga and righteous conduct
    the renunciation of everything and wandering around in the wilderness
    the performance of all sorts of works
    donations to charities and offerings of jewels to fire
    cutting the body apart and making the pieces into ceremonial fire offerings
    keeping fasts and making vows of all sorts


    - none of these are equal to the contemplation of the Name of the Lord

    You may roam over the nine continents of the world and live a very long life
    you may become a great ascetic and a master of disciplined meditation
    and burn yourself in fire
    you may give away gold, horses, elephants and land
    you may practice techniques of inner cleansing and all sorts of Yogic postures
    you may adopt the self-mortifying ways of the Jains and great spiritual disciplines[/b]
    piece by piece, you may cut your body apart
    but even so, the filth of your ego shall not depart

    There is nothing equal to the Name of the Lord.
    Guru Nanak, says, obey the Guru, chant the Naam, and obtain salvation. ||2||

    Through this message, Guru Nanak Sahib ji, who is dear to all, is not seeking his glory, if he a muslim or a hindu, or a christian or whosoever obeys, that person will be liberated.

    This is from sukhmani Sahib, Reciting with understanding, one obtains many blessings from Guru ji.


    More on Greatness of the Name of God

    PBUH Prophet Mohammed recited the name Allah, Allah, in a secluded place and obtained greatness.
    Christ meditated and remembered on Allah as well.
    Also, during the ancient times, when Krishna was sitting on one side of a scale, and many ppl tried to lift from the Ground, by putting loads of Gold, on the other end. He couldnt be lifted even a tiny bit. When someone.. thought of his name, they wrote his name on a leaf, and put that leaf on the scale, instantly Krishna was lifted on the other end of the scale.

    Guru Nanak Sahib ji has said "God's name is higher then God himself"
    also "God is present in the Rememberance of his name"

    Useless practices


    all the religions had started following useless and doubtful practices, this is why the formless God Allah took form as Guru Nanak, the Guru of the World and spread the truth.

    In my opinion, Its not possible to please Lord Allah, if one thinks so, by taking the life of the Sheep/Goat on Eid.
    Allah, saved the son of PBUH Prophet Mohammed, by miracaluously replacing his son, with a goat/sheep. It does not mean you have to sacrifice sheep every year.

    I asked my muslim friend, he said no he cannot question this, I respect the his faith, but faith is blind without true understanding and many a times lead to superstition.

    The hindus themselves involved in useless practices and rituals , castes etc, and had been deluded also.

    This is why Allah took form as the True Guru, and the glory of the True Guru has spread in all directions.

    Seeming Trouble in Religions
    All that happens is the divine plan of God.

    A muslim has a great difficulty to say the name Ram, because he thinks Ram is not Allah.
    A hindu has a great difficulty to say the name Allah, because he thinks Allah is not Ram.

    A sikh has no difficulty at all, He praises Ram and Allah as one and the same. He is friend of all muslims and hindus and gives them the true message.

    The army of Guru, the Khalsa, has been formed from the Joy of God, it is protector of the truth, the Warrior Saints,
    Who have the ability to fight even with their head cut off from their heads. True Gifts from the True Guru,
    whose glory cannot be described, Vaahiguroo

    It is all in the divine of hukam of the Guru, that Khalsa will be spread in all corners of the world, It is my belief and faith from what i experience, read and hear,
    the time is not very far, when the present structure of the world will be reduced to ashes, and
    the new world will rise on the Glory of Khalsa.

    My message to all brothers and sisters is that realize the gift, that Guru ji has given you,
    Do not look anywhere else for what you need, its all already within your own home,
    Recite, understand and absorb gurbani, within you , in it is contained all the divine nectar of eternal peace.<br /><br />
