laalsingh got a reaction from harsharan000 in what are the two paths?
Guru Sahib, particularly Satguru Nanank uses ਦੋਵੈ word to represent duality (illusion of being separate from One).
ਏਕੁ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਦੁਇ ਰਾਹ ਵਾਦ ਵਧੰਦਿਆ ਜੀਉ ॥
There is One Lord, way of duality will increase the conflict.
ਦੁਇ ਰਾਹ ਚਲਾਏ ਹੁਕਮਿ ਸਬਾਏ ਜਨਮਿ ਮੁਆ ਸੰਸਾਰਾ ॥
Following path of duality, still within His Command, this world takes birth and dies.
ਰਾਹ ਦੋਵੈ ਇਕੁ ਜਾਣੈ ਸੋਈ ਸਿਝਸੀ ॥
One who recognizes path of duality as One shall be emancipated.
laalsingh got a reaction from Kaur Inder in From Is Formless, Formless Is Form!
ਵਿਸੁਏ ਚਸਿਆ ਘੜੀਆ ਪਹਰਾ ਥਿਤੀ ਵਾਰੀ ਮਾਹੁ ਹੋਆ ॥
ਸੂਰਜੁ ਏਕੋ ਰੁਤਿ ਅਨੇਕ ॥
The seconds, minutes and hours, days, weeks and months,
and the various seasons originate from the one sun;
ਨਾਨਕ ਕਰਤੇ ਕੇ ਕੇਤੇ ਵੇਸ ॥੨॥੨॥
O Nanak, in just the same way, the many forms originate from the Creator. ||2||2||
Formless, timeless Lord did this ਪਸਾਰਾ, but these forms are bound in time and shape. While looking at these forms, focus on formless, timeless Creator who extended Himself into this ਪਸਾਰ, just like sunlight defines these terms for average human mind.
laalsingh reacted to Lucky in The Pythagoreans
I don't know about any of you, but when I first came across ''Pythagoras'' whilst being taught a2+b2=c2................I thought that my teacher said ''pai'' Thagoras as in 'Bhai Thagoras',.......so I assumed that he was a Bhai saab called 'Thagoras' !!!!
