Is there any distinction? Shri Guru Granth Sahib is the Lord Himself. "Waho Waho Bani Nirankar Hai".
Tejwant Ji.Interesting question.
I want to thank all the Seekers, Scholars who have pitched in here to show us the glimpse of Ardaas from SGGS.
I asked the following sometimes ago in another forum which I would like to share with all of you:
We are all aware that Ardaas plays a very important part in our Sikhi
way of life.I have always been puzzled by Ardaas that we
do today.The word Ardaas is found 303 times in SGGS, thanks to the Gurbani
search engine.However we all know that the contents of the Ardaas we
use today are NOT the same of how/what our Gurus did.
Does anyone have any idea what kind of Ardaas Guru Nanak did and then
how it was evolved with all other nine Gurus who followed him?
Some contents of the Ardaas we do today [do not] seem [to be in line with]
Input from all would be appreciated.
PS:There is another interesting article by Baldev Singh ji regarding Ardaas which was posted here sometimes ago. I am posting the thread number below. Let us revive this and share our facets of this beautiful diamond called Gurbani with each other.
Jasbir Ji,Gyani Jarnail Singh Ji, Gurfateh. I completely agree with you that Ardas is and it should be offered only to God. But I fail to understand why we mention the offerings made of ;pushaks"or "rumalas" and "be-ant maya" in our Ardas. Is it not adressed to Guru Granth Sahib and is it not idol-worshop?
Dear Jasbir Singh jee,Thanks for all the replies,but my simple question was, is ardas offered to guru granth sahib or to god ?
