‘According to one's intellect one expresses it [the truth] in a myriad of ways.’

(Akali Nihang Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Treh Charittar 104, Dasam Guru Durbar)

..therefore according to Guru Maharaj, everyone will get different answers...

(well, thats if u belive that Treh Charritar are Guruji's work)

Hello to all,

I have read this section of akaal ustat in pandit narain singh's steek of dasam granth. I find that using a scholarly method (such as that carried on by any tradition based on meritocracy and started by great people have endured because they attract those who really want to learn) gives a better understanding or base to understanding the context of words/ and or sentences (albeit with their personal and methodological bias).

I am not in the habit of continuously quoting people, although inspiration is drawn. I sat down and thought about writing my thoughts initially, but then I realised that it would be a vain attempt to "front" my intellect. Then I thought about repeating what I had read, but I don't have the text in front of me, nor can I really do any justice.

I am going to take this task seriously, and actually try to understand and give my learning. understanding on this topic for the first question. Give my understanding on this topic.. please await. I don't want to debase the gurbani (tool (in one light) greatest gift (in another)) and vainly spit out what sounds good.

waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh
