    Bhairao, Third Mehla:
    In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, those who do not realize the Lord are goblins. In the Golden Age of Sat Yuga, the supreme soul-swans contemplated the Lord.
    In the Silver Age of Dwaapur Yuga, and the Brass Age of Traytaa Yuga, mankind prevailed, but only a rare few subdued their egos. ||1||
    In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, glorious greatness is obtained through the Lord's Name.
    In each and every age, the Gurmukhs know the One Lord; without the Name, liberation is not attained. ||1||Pause||
    The Naam, the Name of the Lord, is revealed in the heart of the True Lord's humble servant. It dwells in the mind of the Gurmukh.
    Those who are lovingly focused on the Lord's Name save themselves; they save all their ancestors as well. ||2||
    My Lord God is the Giver of virtue. The Word of the Shabad burns away all faults and demerits.
    Those whose minds are filled with the Naam are beautiful; they enshrine the Naam within their hearts. ||3||
    The True Guru has revealed to me the Lord's Home and His Court, and the Mansion of His Presence. I joyfully enjoy His Love.
    Whatever He says, I accept as good; Nanak chants the Naam. ||4||6||16||

    Respected friend,

    I am posting my doubts duly numbered.you may kindly like to answer.My questions may be poited.kindly forgive me for ignorance.

    "In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, glorious greatness is obtained through the Lord's Name.

    1. What is the Name of the lord.

    In each and every age, the Gurmukhs know the One Lord; without the Name, liberation is not attained. ||1||Pause||

    The Naam, the Name of the Lord, is revealed in the heart of the True Lord's humble servant. It dwells in the mind of the Gurmukh.

    2.Who would reveal the Name of the Lord.?Is it not 'waheguru' or 'om'

    My Lord God is the Giver of virtue. The Word of the Shabad burns away all faults and demerits.


    3.What is 'word of Shabd? How does it differ from "naam'?

    Those whose minds are filled with the Naam are beautiful; they enshrine the Naam within their hearts. ||3||

    4. How is one's mind/heart is filled with Naam? What is to be done for this.?

    Whatever He says, I accept as good; Nanak chants the Naam. ||4||6||16||"


    5. Why should Nanak Sahib Chant HIS name? He is supposed to be the God for sikhs.

    These are some of the doubts that have arisen and I have posted them for clarification in a very blunt and honest manner.Kindly do not mind my english.

    Regards.

    Dear hps,

    This online book might help answer your questions. Sikhism Based on Gurbani - Home

    As regards to your last question, Sikhs only believe in ONE GOD - EK ONGKAAR - SAT NAAM - KARTA PURKAH

    Please read Mool Mantar Ang 1 Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

    Guru Nanak dev Ji made a point in teaching "Ek Ongkaar" - ONE GOD - and to abide by Gods Will. All 10 Guru patshashi are humility personified.


    ਹੁਕਮਿ ਰਜਾਈ ਚਲਣਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਨਾਲਿ ॥੧॥
    Hukam rajā­ī cẖalṇā Nānak likẖi­ā nāl. ||1||
    O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will. ||1||
