    On page 1402 of SGGS ji, Guru sahib wrote :-
    and when we separated the words in this , it became
    Whaeguru Whaeguru Waheguru Wahe jio.
    How some body did it ??
    It could have been as
    Whae Guru Whae Guru Whae Guru Whae jio.
    Entirely different meaning !!!!!!!!
    Can someone guide me the truth, please ?

    Word waheguru is written in sggs by bhatt gyand on page 1403. this is how it is derived.. before that page 1402 by bhatt Parmanand and many other places as well by our gurus it is written as wah guru wah guru. when we grammatically unite the two words wah and guru it becomes waheguru or wahiguru whatever you take.In sikhism hinduism and sufisim guru is considered as God. So while praising the guru and combining the two words Gyand made it as God. I hope it helps. the other place word wahiguru is in bhai Gurdas wars , war 1 page 20. he actually copied from sggs and made his own, but it is completely illogical

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!
