Translation Of Chritropakyan

Recommended Posts

What do people make of the suggestion that portions of DG are secular works, for knowledge, not bani?

It is because of lack of understanding of the above mentioned points that people wrongly believe Guru Ji’s compositions can only be Gurbani or Gurvaak and not plain work of secular fiction.

It's common knowledge to those who read/take tution n Dasam Bani that it is made up of 3 elements - Spiritual, War Orientated and Secular.

Dasmesh Pita has provided a complete education for his sons (Singhs).

If it were spelled out simply like that, we perhaps wouldn't have half of the controversies we have over DG?

I know some ultra-conservatives would still complain due to ANY reference to sexuality but surely they can be sectioned off as some small weirdo fringe. Or 'planet Pluto Singhs' as the youth are calling them these days.

The bits where you have statements suggesting that improvements be made seems to suggest otherwise?

Are parts secular?

To me it is all valuable, but obviously parts like Charitrio Pakyaan serve a very different purpose to Jaap Sahib.

I dont know, but I did a little bit of research on the Chaubis Avatar a few years ago to see if it was "just translations" or dhur ki bani... My limited research let me to conclude it was dhur ki bani based on internal evidence such as the above

One conclusion I have come to is that one cannot grasp the DG unless one is mentally mature, open minded and possessing of a certain degree of intelligence.

That is what makes all of the usual suspects totally miss the point about it.

It is a very deep, multifaceted work.

Linear, simplistic descriptions of it doesn't work. It does contain a wealth of worldly and Indic cultural knowledge within, as well as spiritual matter.

Seeing all of the contents in one light doesn't seem to work.
