A Complete Guru's Trait in Raag Maru (Ansh) Mehla 1 of the SGGS

The traits of the complete guru are being described in this sacred speech of Nanak Ji mentioned in pious Sri Guru Granth Sahib on Page no.1037.

ਸੁੰਨਹੁ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਬਿਸਨੁ ਮਹੇਸੁ ਉਪਾਏ ॥ ਸੁੰਨੇ ਵਰਤੇ ਜੁਗ ਸਬਾਏ ॥
ਇਸੁ ਪਦ ਵੀਚਾਰੇ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਪੂਰਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਮਿਲੀਐ ਭਰਮੁ ਚੁਕਾਇਦਾ ॥੩॥
ਸਾਮ ਵੇਦੁ ਰਿਗੁ ਜੁਜਰੁ ਅਥਰਬਣੁ ॥ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੇ ਮੁਖਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਹੈ ਤ੍ਰੈ ਗੁਣ ॥
ਤਾ ਕੀ ਕੀਮਤਿ ਕਹਿ ਨ ਸਕੈ ਕੋ ਤਿਉ ਬੋਲੇ ਜਿਉ ਬੋਲਾਇਦਾ ॥੯॥


Sunhu Brahma, Bisnu, Mahesu upaaye, sune varte jug sabaaye 
Isu pad bichaare so janu pura, tis miliye bharmu chukaaida (3)
Saam vedu, rugu- jujaru-atharbanu, brahme much maaiaa hai traigun 
Taa kee keemat kahi na sakae, ko tiu bole jiu bulaaida (9)

सुनहु ब्रह्मा, बिसनु, महेसु उपाए। सुने वरते जुग सबाए।।
इसु पद बिचारे सो जनु पुरा। तिस मिलिए भरमु चुकाइदा।।(3)
साम वेदु, रुगु जुजरु अथरबणु। ब्रहमें मुख माइआ है त्रौगुण।।
ता की कीमत कहि न सकै। को तिउ बोले जिउ बुलाईदा।।(9)

The essence of the aforesaid sacred speech is that the Saint, who will narrate the whole story of nature’s creation and will tell who came out of the two-halved egg and created the Brahm lok in the vacuum space i.e. gave rise to Brahma, Vishnu and Shiv in a secret place, and who is that God who made Brahm (Kaal) narrate the four Vedas (Holy Rigved, Yajurved, Samved and Atharvaved) and that the Purna Parmatma makes every living being say whatever He wishes, if you find a saint who fully tells about all this knowledge, then go to him. He who clears up all your doubts, only he is a Complete Saint i.e. is Tatvadarshi (Enlightened Saint).

He created Brahm-Kaal and then further the creation of Tridev was done by Kaal and Goddess Durga. God who is the creator is in human form and has descended yet again on earth and is playing the divine spectacle in the cover of great enlightened Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj. Come take refuge and become worthy for the attainment of salvation and reach the same Sachhkhand where Guru Nanak Ji resides now and is relishing all comforts.

How can one become a true religious guru?

Satlok Ashram

Satguru or real guru is the representative sent by God who has power and authority to provide true spiritual knowledge and true salvation mantras. Rest all are fake gurus. So one should not waste precious human birth in becoming a guru rather should make efforts to search an enlightened Saint who is Satguru and take his shelter, do true worship so that he/she becomes eligible to attain emancipation.

Vishal Verma

I have heard one should acquire a guru to get success in the path of devotion with which God is attained, but how should I judge who is the real guru?

Satlok Ashram

A true guru guides disciples about the true method of devotion and provides real salvation mantras.
