Dear brother, it is encouraging seeing your attempts for the search of your inner truth. But if you don´t mind, and allow me to give you another point of view, in a humble manner... it would be most appreciated.

We are all brothers and sisters, children of the same Wahiguru Akal Purukh, and if we can feel we can help each other without any impositions, in a natural, gentle and clear manner, anybody is most welcome.

When our Guru Sahibans, stated Ik Onkar, Satnam... they meant, there is one God, and His Name or Nam is the truth. Now the context of the word truth here, is not, what we usually tend to use. But in the sense, that everything in the creation is transitory, subject to changes and decay one day, except that one Nam.

Except Wahiguru, who is beyond any change, and is eternal, it was so in the begining, it is so now and it will continue to be so. He was as He is now, and shall remain so forever. In this sense, He is the only truth, because He is changeless, no climatical conditions, no Parlay or Mahaparlay can affect Him, He is the Master of each and everything.

Now when we say His Nam is truth, means He is Nam or Shabad; and being truth as synonymous as eternal and changeless, He is also at the same time, an Ocean of Consciousness, and of pure bliss. Well, Him being an infinite Ocean, truth, consciousnes and bliss are His, but just main features(qualities).

He is known also as real Love, and the dispenser of grace and mercy(Daya Meher). That is why He is known as Dayalu or Dayal Purukh.

He is Akal Purukh, because He is beyond Kal´s domain.

Some Saints have called Him, Anami. Means, the One without name. So when He is named as Satnam, means He is Nam, and He is eternal, as truth is eternal ... So He is Nam or Shabad, and being Sat or truth, is just one of His infinite qualities. So let us not confuse ourselves.

Some may ask, so what or who is Wahiguru? According to the realized Gurmukhs and our Guru Sahibans, He can be described as a highest level of consciousness, of purity, of bliss, He is changeless and deathless, He is beyond any enemy, so from whom is He going to be afraid of? He is beyond the cycle of karmas, births and deaths. Thousands of devis, devtas, gods, godesses, are beggars at His door... So someone to create a infinite and wonderfull creation we all know, must naturally have that infinite power, knowledge .... in a word : Conscious Energy, which is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscience.

He is the object of devotion, of each jeeva or soul. He alone He is. Everything has sprout from Him,and everything merges in Him. But He is Nam or Shabad. And Nam or Shabad is His essence, His real form.

That is why the Bani says: Jeta keeta teta Nao, bin Navai naheen kou thao. Which means, everything that exists(seen or unseen) is created by Nam; and there is nothing that is not created by Nam.

At other place the Bani says: Shabde Dhartee, Shabde Akash...Shabde Shabad bhaya parkash...saglee shreeste Shabad ke paache, Nanak Shabad, ghate ghat aache.

He is so great, so inmense, so infinite that even if we go on counting His virtues, ages and aeons shall pass away, but His virtues shall not end.

It is good to read, or listen to the Bani, but it is better even, if we do what the Bani tell´s us. The Bani is simple and direct, and it is for us to follow literally what is said, without any manipulation of any representant or leader ...only a Gurmukh can make us understand the real meaning and make us drink the Amrit referred in it.

What is the objective and goal of each one of us? We may agree, to meet Wahiguru and become with Him. And for that purpose, the sacred Bani says: Jin Har japiyaa, se Har hoiyaa. Means, he who does simran of Nam, of Har, becomes one with Wahiguru Akal Purukh. We can well see, how our Guru Sahibans, out of their mercy and grace have simplified the path for us, for we manmukhs lost in rituals, ceremonies, dogmas, fastings, politics, sacrifices, lands, wars in the name of religion, castes, creeds, nationalities....and a long etc. We are moorakhs, we are mugahdhs, we are agyanis, we are narrow minded, full of pride, anger, avarice, lust, and attachments for the mayavee things.

The Bani says one thing, and we do a lot of many other things, we are misled and misguided by the society, by the so called gyanis, the board members, by the politicians .... and those who posses the real knowledge, like the Gurmukhs, we ill treat and abuse them.

Why? Because they tell us the truth of the Bani in a simple way, as it is . And this, our polluted mind does not like it, neither it accepts it.

They(Gurmukhs) say: Wahiguru is inside you and everybody, and the ladder to Him, is His Nam simran. This is the message, which any true Gurmukh of any time will, give us. They are not interested in politics, neither they come to create any new dharam, mazab or religion. Their home or land is Sach Khand, their identity or nationality is Satnam; and this, they shall always share with us, irrespective of the place and country and time they are born in.

Nam , Nam and only Nam is their message ...... they attach our souls with that Nam(Nanak, Nam jahaz hae), and thus make us one with Wahiguru Akal Purukh.

This is their mahanta, their wadyaee, their greatness.

So Satgur, pyara, mere naal hae .....

Guru Da Pyara
