    Let us review the commonly understood definitions from English vocabulary.
    Omnipresent
    present everywhere at the same time
    Omnipotent
    Having unlimited or universal power, authority, or force; all-powerful
    Omniscient
    having complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things
    For my mind the following provides a rough reference to such concept in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in one of the shabads from many more in totality of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji,
    From this shabad I get that Omnipresent is reflection of oneness that exists within all of the universe and in all.

    From this shabad I get that Omniscient is the wisdom or truth that forms the basis of all and that pervades everywhere timelessly.

    From this shabad I get that Omnipotent is a reflection of all that happens per the creator’s truths and wisdom that we may have minuscule knowledge of but it has raison d'etre.

    I stand corrected and all errors are mine. What do you think?

    Sat Sri Akal.

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!
