Some Of My Writing. On How I Found The Sikh Faith

Sat Sri Akal,

Okay, first I'd like to say that I wrote this over 3 years ago, when I only started to read the Guru Granth Sahib, and noticed some (many) correlations and references to things only now being glimpsed by science - especially quantum physics - in relation to the nature of the Universe. That over 500 years ago, this knowledge was written in the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, in plain language for anyone to read, long before the advent of quantum physics.... it still blows me away!

Keep in mind, my interpretations may not be correct - and I wrote this before I had as much exposure to the Sikh faith as I do now. I had not yet attended a Gurdwara, and only studied from home on my own. At the time, I felt a strong connection between the science that I was so interested in (dealing with the nature of the Universe) and what I was reading in the Guru Granth Sahib so at the time I wanted to write it down (mostly for my own benefit so I would remember those striking correlations I noticed).

So having said the above I will share this with you... just remember 1) I am not a writer at all... and 2) I am still very new in the Sikh faith and there are bound to be mistakes in this paper so pls don't be harsh with critics. After all, it's only my own opinions and take on the subjects contained within. It's also incomplete....

ਉਸਅਵਸਥਾ ਵਿਚ (ਭਾਵ, ਅਕਾਲ ਪੁਰਖ ਨਾਲ ਇੱਕ-ਰੂਪ ਹੋਣ ਵਾਲੀ ਅਵਸਥਾ ਵਿਚ) ਮਨੁੱਖ ਨੂੰਬੇਅੰਤ ਖੰਡ, ਮੰਡਲ ਤੇ ਬੇਅੰਤ ਬ੍ਰਹਿਮੰਡ (ਦਿੱਸਦੇ ਹਨ, ਇਤਨੇ ਬੇਅੰਤ ਕਿ) ਜੇ ਕੋਈ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਇਸ ਦਾ ਕਥਨ ਕਰਨ ਲੱਗੇ, ਤਾਂ ਉਹਨਾਂ ਦੇ ਓੜਕ ਨਹੀਂ ਪੈ ਸਕਦੇ।
ਵਰਭੰਡ = ਬ੍ਰਹਿਮੰਡ। ਕੋ = ਕੋਈ ਮਨੁੱਖ। ਕਥੈ = ਦੱਸਣ ਲੱਗੇ, ਬਿਆਨ ਕਰੇ। ਤ ਅੰਤ ਨ ਅੰਤ = ਇਹਨਾਂ ਖੰਡਾਂ ਮੰਡਲਾਂ ਤੇ ਬ੍ਰਹਿਮੰਡਾਂ ਦੇ ਅੰਤ ਨਹੀਂ ਪੈ ਸਕਦੇ।
There so realized the realms and supreme constellations, if one were to describe there is no end.
