All Pervading Guru JOT (God) as defined in Sri Akal Ustat


All Pervading Guru JOT (God) as defined in Sri Akal Ustat

Following is the translation from the extracts from Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Composition, "Sri Akal Ustat", relating the Creator Lord's Immanent Form of Guru Jot, pervading the whole of Creation - in Sri Guru Granth Sahib defined generally as "Sat Guru Poora" or "Sabda", and in the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib defined by many names, such as - Durga, Chandi, Bhagauti, Bhavani, SIVA, and many other names.

The Creator Lord is Formless, and so is His Light or Jot, which pervades all the creation, and is instrumental in creation of the Universe. This Jot abides in us all, we call it SOUL. In Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Sat Guru Ji calls it "Sat Guru" or (Divine) - having no difference in qualities and function from the Transcendental Lord, Parbrham. We Sikh still upto this day, foolishly like Hindu Brahmans treat it otherwise, and like them zealously state that our SOUL (which is defined verily God Himself), is a sinner and transmigrates. Those so called Sikhs possessing this much of knowledge of Guru Granth Sahib, have dared to make senseless criticism of the Holy Scriptures, especially of Sri Dasam Guru Granth Sahib. It is totally "Pearls before the Swines", as aptly stated in the Holy Bible.  Sri Kabir Ji also teaches us -

“They do not listen to the Lord's Praises, and they do not sing the Lord's Glories,  but they try to bring down the sky with their talk.  1 .
What can anyone say to such people?  You should always be careful around those whom God has excluded from His devotional worship. 1 . Pause .
They do not offer even a handful of water,  while they slander the one who brought forth the Ganges.  2 .
Sitting down or standing up, their ways are crooked and evil.  They ruin themselves, and then they ruin others.  3 .
They know nothing except evil talk.  They would not even obey Brahma's orders.  4 .
They themselves are lost, and they mislead others as well.  They set their own temple on fire, and then they fall asleep within it.  5 .
They laugh at others, while they themselves are one-eyed.  Seeing them, Kabir is embarrassed.  6 . 1 . 44”
(Gauree, Sri Kabir Ji, page 332)

Extracts from Sri Akal Ustat Sahib

Following is the translation of the excerpts from Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s Composition, Sri Akal Ustat. This section of Sri Akal Ustat, is most beautifully worded in matchless poetry and thought.  The readers are requested to read the text; the words used are so arranged that they create throbbing sensation when one reads them; words move and vibrate rhythmically.  This can be experienced, not stated in words.  It is in Reality the Immense Treasure of Knowledge.  Sat Guru Jee has used ‘Brij Bhasha’ Language of Scholars, which is widely understood in India, but we Punjabees may have some difficulty.  Alas!. These Pearls and Gems are of no value to the "SWINE" section of we modern Sikhs, who have turned their backs to the Guru – but stick the Sikh fold, merely to inflict fatal injury to GURMAT, acting as cobra snakes, to remain hidden in the good looking grass of Gursikh Society.  Beware of these God accursed scoundrels.
