    I have two questions that you have to attend to.

    1.Kindly refer to line ni. 1237-11 [both lines].What is the logic Of the placement of these lines here .The lines appear to be out of context here.But these must have some meaning as per the context as well. May be I am not aware Of this.You may like to enlighten.

    2. HE is won by HIS name. Incidently we have 'waheguru' as the name . AS per this line [colored] we have just to meditate upon this name. Are we supposed to do Jap/simran through out our life .[8 pehr i.e. 24 hours a day...Is it possible?how...by mugging bani and doing mental jap..?]

    Kindly give your views
