POETIC VALUE OF GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI

Always our thoughts are on the content of Guru Granth Sahib Ji (GGSJ) as the guiding light of our living guru to mould our lives.Sacread texts are read daily with due resepect and veneration. An aestetic mind which treasures the verses of GGSJ may find ecstay in even reading the verses without much reflections on the content.This shows the genius of sikh gurus. It reflects their diversity and depth in thoughts with due consideration to the beauty of human existence i.e aestheticism.
The following verses captured my hearts on the very first attempt that I read them . I love the way it is presented. See the comparisons.They are so unique , unparalleled, relevant and appropriate. At the same time splendid. If english text is so facinating, can you imagine the splendour of the Punjabi version.This is the reason why sri GGSJ is a facinating source of inspiration to sikhs and non sikhs equally. Is there any other book that describes God's way in such a graceful, rhythmic, poetic language. Next time when you recite the verses of SGGSJ, be elated by the beauty of their presentation.


Chitr and Gupt, the angels of the conscious and the subconscious who record actions,
and the Righteous Judge of Dharma who judges this record sing.

Shiva, Brahma and the Goddess of Beauty, ever adorned, sing
Indra, seated upon His Throne, sings with the deities at Your Door
The Siddhas in Samaadhi sing; the Saadhus sing in contemplation.
The celibates, the Pandits, the religious scholars who recite the Vedas, with the supreme sages of all the ages, sing.
fanatics, the peacefully accepting and the fearless warriors sing
The Mohinis, the enchanting heavenly beauties who entice hearts in this world, in paradise, and in the celestial jewels created by you

Thanks to your kind support, I have been able to find the answer to the question " Guru Nanak Ji's visit to Ceylon: Facts or Myth" . As time premits, I will highlight all accademic work related to the whole voyage of the founder of our religion in my blog.

Additionally , When I browse through all sikh blogs, I find none connecting spirituality of sikhism with health.

So please await. I am at ease in concentrationg on this aspect of religion with the health in which I am a professional
