Random verse of the Moment: ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥: The Gur-Sevaa is Shabad-Vichaar (Reflection on the Shabad) (sggs 223).

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")...

Updated daily, Reflections On Gurbani has been online since 1993, and now features over 300 Gurbani Articles. Additionally, there are over 300 entries at our Gurbani Blog page.

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), Maya, duality, etc., and Realize one's Mool (Source, Joti...), within, here and now.

It is repeatedly indicated in the Gurbani that there are only two different mentality-groups living together on earth: (1) the "rare" Gurmukhs (whose minds are established in their Mool, Truth, Sach, Hukam...); and (2) the majority Manmukhs (whose minds are oppugnant of their Mool, Truth, Sach, Hukam...).

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 gain from it (Laahaa). For the Gurbani, and its students ( Sikhs ), there is no enemy or alien - all beings are considered part and parcel of the same ONE Light (Universal Brotherhood)!

A Guide for practical Spirituality, the Gurbani is the Treasure of Wisdom (Giaan-Guroo). It provides all that's needed to raise one's consciousness to the Higher dimension to become Enlightened (Liberated-Jeevan Mukta) here and now - 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, Divine Virtues? What's the use of talking about religion, Dharma, spirituality, or Truth if not lived? ...
