What does the word Ram refers to in Guru Granth Sahib??

Consider the example:

raam naam ur mai gahi-o jaa kai sam nahee ko-ay

jih simrat sankat mitai daras tuhaaro ho-ay.

This verse seems very characteristics of a Bhagat who has enshrined the 'Ram' Naam and infering it to be a generic 'Lord' doesn't make sense.

With Ram Nam, what Guru Jee wants to tell us, is, that the word Ram is used to describe the Creator, who is rameeya (permeated,omnipresent)  hua in all and everywhere, that is why He is called Ram,  thus obviously it does not refer to Sree Ram, the son of Dashrat and an incarnation of sree Vishnu Jee. 

And as Nam is all pervading, thus Nam is the Ram or the Creator Lord.

So to conclude, Nam is Ram(the all pervading), or if preferred, Ram the creator is Nam(for those who can not  grasp the idea of  what Nam is in reality).

Nam a creative power, a highest state of Consciousness.

To this Nam, we call it Shabad also, Sachee Bani, Amrit Bani, Dhur kee Bani, Waheguru, Akal Purukh, Satnam, Aad Sach...

Stay blessed.
