  3. Well , regarding the title of this thread the Bani clearly says: AAPAY SATGUR AAPAY HAR AAPAY MEL MILAWE This means, He Himself is the Satguru, He Himself is the Lord, and He himself reunites us with Him. Thus paying attention to the Bani in the verse above, we can confidendtly say: Guru Nanak was God Himself. SSA.

  4. Dear brother Amardeep, it would be better if we say, that the Creator Himself, assumed a limited form as a Guru, for us limited beings, in order to teach us the Higher Truth in our own terms. ਗੁਰੁ ਗੋਪਾਲੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਭਗਵਾਨੁ ॥ Gur Gopaal Purakh Bhagavaan || The Guru is the Lord of the World, the Primal Being, the Lord God. Raag Gond Guru Arjan Dev He Waheguru Akal Purukh, is Alakh Purukh, is Nirala, is Agam Purukh, thus not perceived, not only by any our indriyas, but our spiritual sight is also taped by our karmas, vikars, sanskaras...... So you see, not only He is subtle, thus not perceived as said above, but neither we have any such instruments to reveal Him, for we are spiritually blind, thus all our actions are futile. He also, in His original form is in a way to say, He is limited, for however He may much want, we can never ever have His darshan, nor profit from His akhoot Jot. So He comes at our level as a human being like us, which is considered the top of the creation. He comes as a Guru, as Guru Sahiban, because He, our True Father and Mother, can not resist Himself, when He hears our terrible wails of pain and despair due to our own karmas, for that is what in reality exists in the mayavee creation. And His greatness is such, that in spite of being omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, He respects His Hukum, His bhaana, in terms of His own created laws of nature. He does not display any supernatural powers, that is not His character, unlike the avtars of gods, godesses, or other spiritual entities. His purpose of coming here, is only to make us know about His true reality of Nam or Shabad, and to make us foolish agyanis understand, that Nam is the only eternal and unchangeable Truth that exits, and is the only boat, the only vessel, which by boarding on, we can cross from the false and perishable creation of Brahm, to the other side of the shore, where only eternity and True bliss exists, namely Sach Khand. ਗੁਰੁ ਬੋਹਿਥੁ ਤਾਰੇ ਭਵ ਪਾਰਿ ॥ Gur Bohithh Thaarae Bhav Paar || The Guru is the boat to cross over the terrifying world-ocean. So you see, if the Guru is the boat to cross the maha bhavsagar, it is just but natural, that He Waheguru, assumes the form of a Guru to take our souls across, isn´t it? The glory or mahima of Guru and Gobind is apaar, words fail to describe Him, He is beyond any description.... Stay blessed. SSA.

  5. I am sorry, but I must say, we take things literally. We fail to know the esence of things. Sahib Jee, what makes you think, He can not manifest Himself through a living being? He has been doing so, since aad jugaad. It is our limited vision, for which we think, the way we think and express ourselves .... Just let us stop a bit and think a liitle bit..... and ask ourselves questions like: Who or what is Akal Purukh? What for, does He need, to come to our level? How does He come, and manifest Himself ? The answers are as follows, maybe there are some memebers in the sangat who can give their valuable opinions, but as these are mine own, which I would like to share with the blessed sangat here: 1) Wahiguru Akal Purukh is not something physical, not even mental, He is beyond that. And above all, He is a level of Highest Consciousness, Energy, He is an Infinte Ocean of Love, mercy and Grace....These are His main virtues, many have described Hm also as Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent. And still others say: He is Ouch se Oucha, the Highest; Apaar, Unfathomable; Beant, Infinite; Soami, the Lord Master of everything. The Bani says: Sochay soch na hovaee, jeh sochae lak vaar. One can not come to comprehend Him, if you think again again, hundreds of thousands of times 2) He comes to our human level, just for us, souls, His jeevas.... Why? To make us know the Truth, which otherwise would be impossible. Because in our presemt state, we are surrounded by maya, and overpowered by kaal, and his ministers: kaam, krodh, lobh, moh and ahankar...plus the chains upon us of countless karmas...just imagine, since we left Sach Khand, since aeons, we have been just collecting karmas, so we have an unlimited unpayable account on our heads. So brothers, sincerely speaking, we have not even a remote chance to escape by our own efforts, and reach Him, it is just unimaginable for us. That is the reason, when we want to meditate on Him and close our eyes, we see nothing but darkness, so we just give up, and prefer not to do this bhakti, rather many other practices.... and through the Bani, we know, if we do not do this Bhakti, there is no liberation either ..... But what do we moorkhs do? We do our own maanmat. Thus we never ever, lay at His dooor as kookars even.... Then too, we proudly say, we are sikhs... Being a sikh is very great thing, it is the begining of our returning Home, but unfortunately, we just put a sticker on us, that we are sikhs of the Guru, but the fact is, it is far from reality, and we just pass our lives fooling around, with politics, land, rituals, wars, hatred, intolerance, manmukhta....etc. And the only one thing which the Bani repeats constantly, we overlook it: Awar kaaj, tere kiteh na kaam, mil Sadh Sangat, bhaj kewal Naam. So, when we close our eyes to do bhajan bandagee, the unavoidable darkness we see, it is nothing, but, the blackness of our own countless karmas, otherwise, as some mahapurukhs have said, our soul has the light of sixteen suns.... So if we never wash our karmas with His Simran; how will, or when will that darkness star becoming lesser? Of course never.... So one of the reasons of their coming is, to reveal us the secrets(bhed) of Naam, so that we leave our stupidity, and catch hold of that Shabad, by unfolding it within ourselves, and after cleaning ourselves, and becoming spotless, we board the Jaaz of Naam and retrun back to our Nijh Ghar, Sach Khand and finally merge in Him, and becoming one with Him. 3) As we know He is a level of consciousness, He is not anything material. So He has to come at our physical level, so that, we may understand Him. If He comes as a devi or devta, we can not see them. if He comes as an animal, bird or trees, we can not understand them, moreover, they are below the mankind level, which is considered the highest among the beings, even higher than the gods or devis. devtas, who starve to get once again the human birth to do the right bhajan bandagee, and merge in Him. So you see, He has to talk with us, in our own languages, so that we may understand the higher Truths of Shabd, of Naam, of Satnam... The changes/differences among different beings, are mainly at the consciousness level, otherwise, we all have more or less the same heights, two eyes, one nose, hands, legs, etc In the same way, when Wahiguru decides to dwell among us for our spiritual uplift, He manifests Himself, in the forms of Bhagats, Sadhs, Sant Janas, Guru Sahibans... If we look at these holy supreme beings, outwardly, they look like any one of us, there is hardly any differnce, there is nothing, which denotes their superiority... Neither do they dress in a particular way ... Neither it is like in the army, that their unforms have badges or marks to show their ranks .... So then where/what is that quality which distinguishes them? It is as said befor at the consciouss level, while we are entagled with the world and maya, they are in tune with the inner reality, in constant communion with the Shabad Guru; their rom rom vibrates with Naam. That is why the Bani says: Har Jee baseh Sadh ke hirdey. Though hirdey is heart, but here the Bani does not refer to the heart, which is just a muscle, a piece of flesh, rather it means, that, that Supreme Power and Consciousness, has come to abide, with the soul consciousness of that being, that is why it can talk so precisely, about Wahiguru and Sach Khand, if this was not so, how would anybody know about Him? Of course never ever, cause Kaal in his domains, has laid all sort of powerful traps, so that the soul may never ever think even by mistake of Wahiguru Akal Purukh. You see, all this happens within. Wahiguru descends from His abode within, whenever He thinks fit so, and when He decides to finish His mission on earth here, He just goes from within along with that particular ray of His, in that particular body, back to Sach Khand. The body is, just consciousless, is just a handful of dust, and there it returns, when disposed of. It is we people who see the Guru Sahibans or Bhagats in the sargun swaroop, and tend to take them as individual beings, when the fact is, they are related to Wahiguru(Ocean), just as are the waves(sargun swaroop) to that ocean. The waves take a shape and size, and seem they are separated for a time being, from the Ocean, but the fact is, that is just an illusion, because they are very much part and parcel of the Ocean in essence, but return and become one with the ocean, once their mission of coming here is fulfilled. And we all know, the waves never stop emerging from the Ocean, they keep coming, nobody can stop them, if even if some want to.., A wave emerges, from the sea at the seashore for a time being.... It returns back in the Ocean becoming One with It, and while this is happening, another wave is preparing to come at the seashore for a particular time being.... Different waves having enmerged at different times may look different in sizes, shapes or slightly different colors, but in essence they are same like the Ocean. This is no man made law. This is the Divine Nature´s law, which no man, no god can change... As long as there is a shore, waves will be coming from the Ocean. This is due only to His Grace, Mercy and unlimited unconditional Love for us jeevas. Sat Sree Akal.
