    This shabad is from sri Raag, and was composed by Guru Amardas ji, on Ang 34. The translation is by Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa. There is a curious translation question to consider. Would Waheguru "curse" any part of his creation? Yet, the translation of this tuk says some are cursed. How...

    Why Are So Many Gods And Demons Listed In This Shabad?

    Do you think there's a reason why Guru Sahib went to such lengths to name so many gods, demons, personalities, etc. in this shabad which starts on ang 224? I haven't pasted the shabad here because it's 12 verses long. Obviously the central theme of the shabad is clear, that those beings are...
