Random verse of the Moment: ਰਾਜਾ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਮੋਰਾ ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਗਿਆਨੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ (1159) — Aadi Granth
Welcome!

Dedicated to the seekers of Truth, this website is free of registration, commerce, politics, etc. Here the aim is to Understand the Gurbani through the Gurbani; share it ("Vand Shakna")...

Reflections On Gurbani has been online since 1993, and now features over 300 Gurbani Articles here. In Addition, there are over 300 Gurbani Blog-entries at our Gurbani Blog site. The Site is updated daily, and new articles and blogs are regularly added.

Free of dogmas, the Gurbani has a simple message: there is One, All-pervading Reality. Our mind is That (Joti-Svaroopa...). The purpose of human life is to understand this Truth through Shabad-Vichaar (Reflections on the Gurbani), and thus become liberated from doubts (Bharam), Bikaar (Haumai's or ego's faults), Maya, duality, etc., and Realize the Mool (Source, Joti...), within, here and now.

It is repeatedly indicated in the Gurbani that there are only two different groups of people living together on earth: (1) "rare" Gurmukhs (Mool-realized, followers of Truth-Sach-Hukam-Wisdom of SGGS...); and (2) Manmukhs (oppugnant of Mool-Truth-Sach-Hukam-Wisdom of SGGS...).

The Gurbani asks us to become the Gurmukh and thus live a Divine Life. The Gurbani's Teaching (Upadesh) is Universal and Timeless. Since no particular group or people have monopoly or ownership of the Gurbani and its Divine Wisdom, everybody in the world can benefit from it. For the Gurbani and its students ( Sikhs ), there is no enemy or alien in this world - ALL beings are considered as part and parcel of the same ONE Light!

A practical Guide for the Divine Life (Gurmukh Lifestyle) and Universal Brotherhood, the Gurbani is the Treasure of Wisdom (Giaan-Guroo). Which provides all that's needed to raise consciousness to the Higher dimension, and become Enlightened (Liberated-Jeevan Mukta) while alive, not after death...

Otherwise, what's the use of reasoning and intellectuality, and reading scriptures or listening to their recitations if it does not usher one in Viveka-Budhi, Wisdom, Aatm-Giaan, godly Virtues? What's the use of talking about religion, Dharma, spirituality, or Truth if not lived? ...
