ੴ / Ik▫oaŉkār
ArQ:ਉਹ ਨਿਡਰ ਹੈ
Meaning: Not fearful.
Application: Guru ji use a common human emotion of ਡਰ/ fear to qualify the creator. Basically the creator is not fearing of anything as nothing is unknown or a surprise to the creator. In the continuous transformational universe, if left to human like emotions and made in-charge of the same, there will be fear of new life forms, fear of rains causing floods so no rain, fear of earthquakes causing the generation of balance in the bigger mother earth humans would leave it to the final catastrophe, there will be no forest fires to create transformational elements, there will be no volcanoes spewing fire, and so on. But the creator knows no such fear. In the grand scheme of things when one reaches stage of understanding, such may show up as just minor tools in the creator’s system for the universe.
Whereas fear provides checks and balances for us as humans in many situations helping us assess and pause, that is only because we have for too many unknowns and we are limited. In the infiniteness of creation where the creator knows, such is not the case and hence naturally fear has no place.
Now if one were to use this facet of our understanding of the creator through Sri Guru Granth Sahib, does it not give Sikhs a head start to lead towards fearless recognition of truths as second nature in matters of the universe and our species as a sub-set. The strength such can generate even in human endeavors is a force to reckon with.
