    At the beginning of Sidh Gohst, Guru Nanak Dave ji spell out the approach and decorum of discourse in Sidh Gohst.

    Let us review the following,

    Some aspects described in the above,

    • A respectful gathering with,
      • Enthusiastic participation
    • Recognition of the supreme creator
      • Respect to the objectives of the meeting
      • Hundred person effort and putting all in contribution
    • Recognizing that the wisdom flows from input of all wise participants
    • Recognizing that the focus is wisdom and truth and seeking of the same
    • Recognizing that seeking/sharing the truth and wisdom is the objective
    Could we learn how to conduct ourselves in gatherings from such a guidance. I believe we can.

    We can learn alot from this conversation.
    The beginning I found very important in terms of givng the answers as to how any sikh should ideally answer.

    The questions were direct, but the answers didn't divert away, they simply made one question themselves and look into themselves.
