So, what I'd like to do here, is put the panthic Ardaas into context. We all know it, but what is the story behind the lines? The Ardaas is built on the shoulder's of giants - who are those giants? Why are certain things mentioned? So please, if you have information, please add. In the original, the lines are not numbered. I have numbered them here for ease of reference. All errors in reproducing the Gurmukhi, the transliteration and translation are mine.
