Sabh Sikhan Ko Hukham Hai, Guru Maniyo Granth

Finding the Guru in Guru Granth Sahib jee. By Manvir Singh Khalsa

‘SABH SIKHAN KO HUKHAM HAI,
GURU MANIYO GRANTH’… by Manvir Singh Khalsa

The Guru Granth Sahib Jee is the living light of the Ten Gurus.
The Guru Granth Sahib Jee is the living spirit of the Ten Gurus.
The Guru Granth Sahib Jee is the living voice of the Ten Gurus.

Some people say the Guru Granth Sahib Jee is a mere ‘Holy Book’.
Some people say the Guru Granth Sahib Jee is mere ink and paper.
Some people say that you can’t get enlightened through the words of Guru Granth Sahib Jee.

“Gurbani is the Light to illuminate this world; by His Grace, it comes to abide.” [Ang 67]

Many fake God men use the verses of Gurbani to enlighten people, and yet call themselves the ‘Guru’.
Many fake God men use the verse of Gurbani to explain the truth to people yet take the credit of being the ‘Guru.
Many fake God men, look like Sikhs, and twist the words of Gurbani, to proclaim themselves as the ‘Guru’.

Somebody’s son moves from India to Canada.
He writes a letter to his family back home saying that he is in good health, got a job and not to worry.

The family a week later receive the letter and read it.
The family are in joy and celebrate the success of their son.
The family are in delighted and are happy that their son is well and healthy.

If someone was to say to the family, that why are you so happy, “you are only reading mere words”…
If someone was to say to the family, that why are so proud, “it is only a mere piece of paper”…
If someone was to say to the family, that your son cannot talk to you through “ink and paper”…
That person would have to be greatest fool, to think that the son has not communicated to the family because he cannot talk them through written words.

The message, which the letter gives is, is of their son’s.
The sweet words in the letter are of their son’s.
The letter is, the son talking to his parents in the form of ink and paper.

Through Gurbani, Waheguru sent us a message.
Through Gurbani, Waheguru spoke to us.
Through Gurbani, Waheguru enlightened us.

“The Word, the Bani is Guru, and Guru is the Bani. Within the Bani, the Ambrosial Nectar [God’s Name] is contained.” [Ang 982]

A person who reads Gurbani to people cannot credit himself to be called ‘Guru’.
A person who explains Gurbani to people cannot credit himself to be called ‘Guru’.
A person who discusses Gurbani with people cannot credit himself to be called ‘Guru’

Waheguru is the Formless and all pervading.
Through Guru Nanak Jee and the ten Gurus, Waheguru was revealed in the form of the spoken.
Through Gurbani and the Guru Granth Sahib Jee, Waheguru is revealed in the form of the written.

The Guru Granth Sahib Jee is an eternal message.
The Guru Granth Sahib Jee is an eternal Emperor.
The Guru Granth Sahib Jee is the eternal voice of Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh Jee, forever.

“Every Sikh has an order, accept the [Guru] ‘Granth’ as your only Guru.” [Guru Gobind Singh Jee]

Be inspired and inspire others.
May Waheguru Bless you.
