Thanks. I will check the Suraj Partap. From a logical point of view your answer makes sense. We just need to find the background on this.
When we do it will help me put some things into perspective also. As there is no reason to equate Guru Gobind Singh with Shakti -- he could balance the forces of good and evil on his own without help from anyother than the Satguru that dwelt within him.
I did not mention previously. Your idea of simply going through "Dasam Granth" as if with the eyes of a Vedantic scholar is an excellent strategy. It should help clarify many many themes and images getting to the bottom of the chapters' messages. Using a set of fresh eyes we might be able to sharpen our focus. :welcome:
It will make it easier in the end to discard the notion that Dasam Pita was trying to teach by using Vedic metaphors. There no evidence that he wrote any of it -- as evidence exists for Aad Granth. There is therefore no way to validate the granth as his bani. By taking your approach it can actually lead to a clear sense of the agenda for binding those books together to begin with as if they were "Sikh scriptures."
If you are not crying out in pain, let me do it for you. Don't give up that easily. The tourism industry in Amritsar is making a bundle guiding tours to the birthplace of Luv and Kush -- practically on top of Harmandir Sahib. Some people fall for it. Others do not. We do have choices. Guru created us to be free.
