ARDAS-P6

After the Ardas, the following couplets are recited which are not written in Guru Granth Sahib or the Dasam Granth. These are written in a document called “Tankhahnama”, written by a devout Sikh and a great poet named Bhai Nand Lal ji, and are believed to be questions by Bhai Nand Lal ji and answers by Guru Gobind Singh ji.

This is a good opportunity to memorize Gurbani, one Pauri at a time. You can concentrate better and enjoy more if you recite bani without looking at the gutka.

 DID YOU KNOW Minimize

ONE SPIRIT, DIFFERENT BODIES

After Guru Nanak Dev ji, none of the Gurus used their names in their writings. They always used the name "Nanak" as if everything was written by Guru Nanak Dev ji. This reinforces our belief that all our Gurus had the same spirit in different bodies. The eternal source of spiritual knowledge that was within Guru Nanak Dev ji was passed on to each Guru and they uttered Gurbani that originated from the same source.)
