We have all plausibly heard the narrative of Akali-Nihung Guru Gobind Singh Ji's preliminary sojourn as 'Dusht-Daman' and the manifestation of the prior Nihungs. For those who are a bit lost, heres what I am talking about, http://tisarpanth.blogspot.co.nz/2013/01/nihung-singhs-original-khalsa.html, http://www.nihangsingh.org/website/his-origins.html after studying this info I have a few questions. 1.) Which significant texts mention 'Dusht-Daman?' 2.) What is the traditional Nihung Singh perspective on 'Dusht-Daman?' 3.) Often esoteric scholars taxonomise Chandi as being an inherent mystical force which is employed to battle against inherent vices. How does the tale of Dusht-Daman reconcile with such a view? 4.) Does Singh originally mean tiger? 5.) How do we explain to a layman, who perceives transmigration as being repulsive, why the Gurus went through such a state? 6.) It is said that the Nihungs evolved through the four ages, it is also said they fought during these ages. Any more info on this? 7.) Whhere does it mention Nihung Singh's and their primary sojourn in Chandi Di Vaar?
