    The GURU is the "LIGHT" that shows the Creator..the GURU gives us the GYAAN to "see" Him.

    Something my Muslim neighbour told me...God is in Heaven !! Heaven is under the feet of Ones Mother !! ???.....Bowing to ones mother.honoring her is akin to being in Gods Heaven.Presence..

    wjkk wjkf,

    I disagree God and Guru are the same.... In mool mantar, it is said "ajooni' meaning without a form. So, if guru is a form of God then the mool mantar is not true.

    Guru is a 'Bohaith' a ship, a divine soul which has direct connection with God. He sends the message of God to us. Thats why "Gur Bina Mukt nahi"....

    Next question comes, who is a bhagat... A bhagat is lower than a guru because bhagats have only GLIMPSES of God. Not direct link....

    wjkk wjkf

    As Ik Ong Kaar is omnipresent- in all and everything, then our behaviour based on Gurmat ideals is capable of making us emulate our Gurus,hence our actions and truthful living can make us Godly. Ik Ong Kaar is not any monolithic entity but Creative Energy within all.

    So, goodness is the manifestation of Ik Ong Kaar in our Gurus and in all the rest of us.
