  10. What Is '੧'?

    Hanji, Balbir ji you have understood it correctly. In my opinion, he meant that sword is a metaphotical meaning of Akaal Purakh. Just like Dayalu, kripalu, etc. Sword here means the shakti.. in simple terms, that One is the shkati or power or cause for everything. How? Thats explained in whole Gurbani. Don't take sword to be literal, its like saying Balbir Singh is like his father, does it mean you have become "father"? No. That means you just have some characteristics (shakal soorat, or chaal, or the way you talk, etc) which is similar to your father. Hence, generally the Nihang samprada, being trained in martial arts, relate 1 with the sword (shakti) in just a pictorial metaphor, because its in their nature. A businessman, will try to see profit/loss in daily activities, while a scientist wud try to reason, hence a martial artist would try to see martial aspects and be happy Again you are taking it literally. For example, there is nothing wrong if someone says steam, ice, waves, drops, ocean is nothing but water from the substratum point of view. Similalry, everything is 1, because that 1 = Brahm, is the substratum, or basis, of everything in this universe. How? Again Gurbani further explains that. :biggrin2:
  11. Tal Or Kal

    Mehtab ji, as you know there is a disagreement between scholars of the panth regarding 17 or 11 Bhatts. Basically sampradas, kavi Santokh Singh ji, bhai Vir Singh ji etc.. say 17. While Prof Sahib Singh and scholars after them say 11. Pandit Kartar Singh Dakha say 19!! Moreover, regarding the pics shown above, they don't give any decision since (read my previous post) even the spellings of svayie and extra || are mismatched. so there is certainly some copy error. Hence, not good examples. so is it Tal or Kal? - I dont know. Since the printed saroops have Tal, hece in my opinion I would read as Tal.
  12. Tal Or Kal

    Some Gurmukh pyara did not copy it correctly.. as u see it after Ik Oankaar Satigur Prasaadi|| the second pic has two extra || and spelling of savaiye is different in both pics. so thts a copy error and can be applied to kal/tal as well. thts y majority is used and majority of granths have Tal.
  13. What Is '੧'?

    Balbir ji, 1 is vaachak for Brahm because thats the vishya anubandh (topic or matter of discussion) laid down by our Guruji. For example, if we open a book on organic chemistry, lets say the title of the first chapter is Carbon, then you get to know that organic chemistry is all about carbon. Then it goes into detail for explaining what it wants to tell about carbon in the chapter and further in all chapters. Similalry, Guru Granth Sahib ji starts with 1, so question comes to mind what is 1? That 1 is Brahm. How do you get to know that it is Brahm and not anything else? Well, if we continue the example as above, the title of chapter 1 is Carbon. Ok, what if someone doesn't know anything about carbon? Lets say the book is meant for graduate students. Still, it gives the basic definition of carbon atom and its structure, discovery etc in beginning of first chapter, or atleast a paragraph, even though for a graduate student it might seem redundant. Hence, if there is a slight doubt in student's mind that organic chemistry is not about carbon, then by reading the first paragraph or the whole book he/she can say that organic chemistry is all about carbon. In the same way, to make sure that 1 is indeed a vaachak for Brahm and nothing else, whole Guru Granth Sahib is there to be read. If not whole, then atleast with just Mool Mantar any doubt regarding 1 not being Brahm will be cleared. Good question though!

    pal ji... thts just your opinion tht Bhagatji's paath ucharan is "slow and be-ras". tht paath is for practice for santhiya.. ask jarnail singh ji (whose paath u find is very rasila) and he will tell u abt bhagatji's ucharan.. u will be surprised..... even when u learn something like vaaja it indeed sounds "be-ras".. with proper santhiya u can read paath fast and with subtle sounds of aunkars and sihari.. u will never miss any lagmatra and u will see it wont break the chaal and lay. talk with any senior DDT gursikhs.. and they will tell u abt how high respect of santhiya they have for bhagatji... even gyani thakur singh took santhiya with him.. thts other thing that he doesnt teach to pronounce lagmatras because it sounds "be-ras" to general public.. infact listen to jaap sahib by a nihang with all the proper chaal of various chandds .. i guess u will say tht jasvant singh ji's jaap sahib style is beautiful..
