Grandeur of a Guru in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

Please read numerous evidences in Shri Guru Granth Sahib ji on the pages below about the fact that Guru Nanak ji had met a guru ji, who had given initiation to Nanak ji. Shri Nanak ji has also clarified this that without a vakt (living) guru one’s bhakti cannot succeed. He has even emphasized this that he should be a ‘Poora Guru’ (Complete God). Those reverent people who do not go in the refuge of vakt guru (living guru), they are violating the orders of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

It is a matter of consideration that Shri Guru Granth Sahib ji is nectar speech of greatmen and is respectable and so are Shri Madbhagvat Gita, Holy Four Vedas and nectar speech of Supreme God Kabir ji, which is the fifth Ved. These are legislation of God. Like, there is a constitution of a country. It is not the Prime Minister. There is a need for the Prime Minister so that he protects the public according to the legislation and gets them their rights.

Shri Nanak dev ji has stated on page 1342 –

“Guru sewa bin bhakti na hoyi, anek jatan karae je koyi |”

Shri Nanak ji has stated on page 946 –

“Bin Satguru bhentey mukti na koyi, Bin Satguru bhentey mahadukh paayi |”

Shri Nanak ji has stated on page 437 –

“Nanak Guru samaani teerathu nahin koyi Saache Guru Gopal |

It is a message of the Guru Sahibs to the people that find the complete guru (Poora Guru). A complete guru is equivalent to God only. A complete guru would be one who would be the recipient of favour of Supreme God like Shri Nanak dev ji. Like, in Bhai Bale Wali Janm Sakhi (in Punjabi language) on page 272-273, Mardana asked Prahlad that – Who else has come here? Prahlad said that only two greatmen have come here. First (Supreme God) Kabir ji, second – Shri Nanak dev ji; only one more will come who will be like these. He will be from the land of Punjab, from Jaat caste. Please see photocopy of Page 272-273 of “Janm Sakhi” in the book “Dharti Par Avtaar”.

It is a request to the entire human society that the third greatman who has spiritual knowledge similar to Shri Nanak dev and Supreme God Kabir is Sant Rampal Das Ji Maharaj. All the Sikh Guru Sahibans have said this that salvation is not possible without a Guru. Vakt guru (Living guru), who will have the authority, will give naam-updesh (initiation). It would be beneficial only to take naam from him. Taking naam from an unauthorized person also does not lead to salvation. It has been clarified in Shri Guru Granth Sahib, page 946 that –

Bin satguru seve jog na hoyi | bin Satguru bhetey mukti na hoyi |
Bin Satguru bhetey naam paaiya na jaai | bin Satguru bhetey mahadukh paai |
Bin Satguru bhetey maha garbi gubaari | Nanak bin Guru muaa janm haari |

In this eternal message, Shri Nanak ji has clarified that without going in the refuge of a living guru (Vakt Guru) neither a living being would attain salvation nor his arrogance would get destroyed, which keeps a living being away from God. Without serving a Satguru i.e. going in the refuge of a Satguru, a religious practice cannot become successful. Without the refuge of a guru ji, naam cannot be obtained. Without naam, salvation is not possible. Even from a fake guru, no task can be accomplished. Without a true guru (Satguru), one will bear terrible suffering and without the refuge of a guru, one dies loosing one’s human life like a gambler defeated in a gamble. Shri Guru Nanak dev ji is strictly saying that obtaining refuge of a guru make your life successful. This human life is invaluable; it will not be obtained again and again.

Some excerpts from Shri Guru Granth Sahib, Raag Aasavari, Mehla 1 -

Sahib mera eko hai | eko hai bhaai eko hai |

Aape roop karey bahu bhaanti Nanak bapura ev keh || (Page 350)

Jo tin kiaa so sachu thiaa, amrit naam Satguru diaa || (Page 352)

Guru poore te gati mati paai | (Page 353)

Boodat jagu dekhiaa tau dari bhaage |

Satguru raakhe se bad bhaage, Nanak guru ki charno laagey ||(Page 414)

Main guru poochhia apnaa saacha bichaari ram |(Page 439)

In the abovementioned nectar-speech, Shri Nanak Sahib ji is himself accepting that Sahib (God) is only one, and my Guru ji gave me updesh mantra. He only acquires various forms i.e. he only is Satpurush; he alone acquires the Jinda form. He only sitting in the form of a weaver plays the role of an ordinary person i.e. devotee. Seeing the entire world burning in the fire of birth-death and results of deeds by doing scripture-opposed worship, with the fear of life being wasted, I ran and took refuge in the feet of guru ji.

Balihaari guru aapne diuhaari sadvaar | 
Jin maanas te devte kiye karat na laagi vaar |
Aapinae aap saajio aapinae rachio naau |
Duyi kudarti saajiye kari aasnu ditho chaau |
Daata karta aapi tu tusi devahi karhi pasaau |
Tu jaanoyi sabhsae de laesahi Jind kavaau kari aasnu ditho chaau | (Page 463)

Meaning is that Complete God acquiring the form of a Jinda came on river Bein i.e. He came to be known as Jinda. And Himself creating the two worlds – above (Satlok etc) and below (loks of Brahm and ParBrahm), sitting in form on the throne above in Satyalok, is passionately seeing the worlds created by Him. He is Himself swayambhu i.e. does not take birth from a mother’s womb. He appears Himself. This same evidence is in Holy Yajurved Adhyay 40 Mantra 8 that “Kavir Maneeshi SwayambhuH paribhu vyavadhata.” Meaning is that God Kabir is omniscient (the meaning of ‘Maneeshi’ is omniscient) and (is SwayambhuH) appears Himself. He is (paribhu) eternal i.e. is the very First God. He is the (Vyavadhata) Creator of all the brahmands i.e. of all the different loks.

Ehu jeeu bahute janam bharmiaa, ta Satiguru shabad sunaaiya || (Pg 465)

Meaning is that Shri Nanak Sahib ji is saying that this soul of mine kept wandering in the cycle of birth and death for a long time. Now the Complete Guru has given me the true naam (mantra).

Then there is evidence in “Raag Basant Mehla Pehla” Paudi no. 3 Aadi Granth (Punjabi) page no. 1188 –

Nanak havmo shabd jalaaiya, Satguru saache daras dikhaaiya || 

It is also clear from this speech that Nanak ji is saying that by Satyanaam (Satyashabd) vice – aham (arrogance) got burnt, and the true guru granted me his audience i.e. I saw Gurudev. It is clear from this that Nanak ji had definitely met some Satguru in form. It has been proved above and below. Complete God Kabir Sahib (Akaal Murt) Himself comes from Sachkhand and in second form came from Kashi (Banaras), granted His clear audience and showing around Sachkhand (Satyalok) gave true naam-updesh in Kashi (Banaras).
