Guru Granth

Article in progress will be completed when I am free.Will cover every aspect of this book.

I take the blessing of Guru Nanak Dev,the great saint of the Bhakti movement before writing the real interpretations of Guru Granth which has been misunderstood by many.

There is one religion, and there are many sects. The moment you give it a name, individualize it and separate it from the rest, it is a sect, no more a religion. A sect proclaims its own truth and declares that there is no truth anywhere else.Religion believes that there has been, and still is, one religion in the world. There never were two religions. It is the same religion presenting different aspects in different places.The task is to conceive the proper understanding of the goal and scope of humanity.

Faith its degeneration when alone — bigotry
fanaticism — sectarianism. Narrowing
finite therefore cannot get to the infinite
Sometimes gain in intensity but loses in
extensity — and in bigots & fanatics become
worship of his own pride & vanity

Is there no other way — there is Love
it never degenerates — peaceful softening
ever widening — the universe is too small
for its expansiveness.

We cannot define it we can only trace
it through its development and describe its surroundings

He burned the rest-houses and the ancient temples; he cut the princes limb from limb, and cast them into the dust.

None of the Mogals went blind, and no one performed any miracle. ||4||

The battle raged between the Mogals and the Pat’haans, and the swords clashed on the battlefield.

They took aim and fired their guns, and they attacked with their elephants.

He burned the rest-houses and the ancient temples; he cut the princes limb from limb, and cast them into the dust.

The Hindu women, the Muslim women, the Bhattis and the Rajputs

some had their robes torn away, from head to foot, while others came to dwell in the cremation ground.

Their husbands did not return home – how did they pass their night?

———————————————————————————————————————-

As the Word of the Forgiving Lord comes to me, so do I express it, O Lalo.

Bringing the marriage party of sin, Babar has invaded from Kaabul, demanding our land as his wedding gift, O Lalo.

Modesty and righteousness both have vanished, and falsehood struts around like a leader, O Lalo.

The Qazis and the Brahmins have lost their roles, and Satan now conducts the marriage rites, O Lalo.

The Muslim women read the Koran, and in their misery, they call upon God, O Lalo.
The Hindu women of high social status, and others of lowly status as well, are put into the same category, O Lalo
