Neutrality takes one only so far.
And yes, your sentences do seem to suggest that prayers in rehat are bani. Otherwise, what are you saying when you say
So if I got it wrong, please rephrase so I can understand. A double negative is a positive. You say CANNOT and NOT in the quote above. That means to me at least that you are saying the Jaap, tav prasadh, akal ustat are bani, are shabad guru.
And I am asking how someone can be neutral on this point?
That's the confusion I'm highlighting, because the majority of us will accept the rehat banis as ALL being gurbani.
Which is why I specifically stated 'personal opinion', because that is the only way we can answer from what I gather.
I have asked my mother and many other elders and they answer the same which is '' All rehat paath is bani, but we are NOT sure about DG!!""
***Confusion***or what ??
My point specifically was that, if I tell an upcoming sikh that they are not gurbani because they come from DG, then he will immediately question, exactly what Justosh did with '' Why are they part of Daily rehat??''
Then it starts to get complcated doesn't it !!
Sometimes, it becomes easier to just say yes, instead of not sure or 'yes, it is bani''- Because I don't want to encourage an upcoming young sikh to disobey the rehat. That itself would be a bujjer kurehit !!
Do you see what I'm getting at here ??
Sometimes, it becomes easier to answer these questions posed by the young by saying ''This is it here, these are the facts, BUT this is also a paath that should be done daily in nitnem''
Then let Waheguru ji take care of the rest.
As long as we lay the facts and don't instruct new recruits which side to bat for, then I'm sure that this would be Waheguru's preference.
