Concept of God
Hear ye, Hear ye, O Saints. The Guru (Gods Light in Man) has opened and raised His Arm, making this Trumpet tone Call to all. If ye are in search of Peace of Mind and want Eternal Peace and Happiness, then take the Refuge of Sat Guru (The Immanent God in us, THE SOUL).God Alone in All Forms is Infinite and Man has been created in His Image and inherits from Him the instinct of infinitude. The instinct of Infinitude in Man cannot be satisfied by reflecting his Mind on any person or thing, as every thing or person is in limitations. Worship of any Prophet, Avtar or leader or god or goddess or any other thing is idolatry, which leads to prejudices and conflicts. Making of idols of even God, gods, goddesses etc. , worship of any system of religious belief, philosophy (political or religious), patriotism (worship of country, nation, group, culture, etc), indulgence in performance of rituals and ceremonies (which do not involve worship of Infinite God) are forms of Idolatry and those who practice them, cannot find nearness to God. One should also never cherish faith in pilgrimages, customary charities, fasting, tombs, crematoriums, hermitages, etc.
santo suno suno jan bhai, gur kadi baha kokijai. jai aatam to sukh, sukh nit loreho ta satgur saran pavijai.
(Guru Ram Das, Rag Kalyan, p 1326 SGGS)
The Sri Guru Granth Sahib is the only Religious Book, which mentions worship of Infinite Spirit of God alone, in His both Transcendent and Immanent Forms only, recognizes no intercession of any in-between Prophet or Avtar or Guru, etc.
