    Not I randip singh ji. But it sounds really interesting. I may do that. And we should get back to discuss it and give the SPN Bookstore a plug at that too.

    Looks interesting. Covers topics like:

    1) Purpose of Human Life
    3) Huqum (Divine Command)
    12) Supernatural Powers: Miracles

    We should get Mr Sekon to write here.

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa!!
    Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!!

    Many Yog Jeo,

    I am not sure if this is the correct thread to post this message. I am still learning my way around SPN :wah:

    Please look at this link. This is an *urgent* message due to time remaining on the listing.

    http://shop.ebay.com/baboo786/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=25

    If the seller's claim is genuine, then please forward this link to those Sikhs who can buy this Beed, and keep this rare, priceless treasure in the humble possession of Sikhs, or in a museum for the benefit of all, since Aad Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji's philosophy is for everyone.

    I also emailed this information to SGPC and a few Sikh organizations.

    Bhul Chuk Maaf Karna Ji.

    Chardi Kala!!

    Dear Randip Ji,

    Here are my two cents on the purpose of human life as per Sabd Guru/AGGS;


    PURPOSE OF HUMAN LIFE

    ABSTRACT

    According to Sabd Guru the purpose of human life is to earn profitable merchandise (ਖੇਪ) of Naam in this world through an ethically lived life by subjugating the five lower instincts and development of virtues. Such profits can indeed help in emancipation or union of individual conciousness with Universal Consciouness. Guru Arjan in Sri Raag ponders on the subject:

    ਚਿਤ੍ਰ ਗੁਪਤ ਕਾ ਕਾਗਦੁ ਫਾਰਿਆ ਜਮਦੂਤਾ ਕਛੂ ਨ ਚਲੀ ॥ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਸਿਖ ਦੇਇ ਮਨ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਹਰਿ ਲਦੇ ਖੇਪ ਸਵਲੀ ॥

    Cẖiṯar gupaṯ kā kāgaḏ fāri*ā jamḏūṯā kacẖẖū na cẖalī.Nānak sikẖ ḏė¬ė man parīṯam har laḏė kẖėp savlī.

    The accounts of the individual kept by mythological Chitr and Gupt, or the recording scribes of the conscious and the subconscious are torn up, and the Messenger of Death cannot do anything. Nanak gives this advice: O beloved mind, load the profitable cargo of the Akal Purkh's Name.-----Guru Arjan, Siri Raag, AGGS, Page, 79-18
