ਮੂਲ – Mool

The Gurbani tells us that the very purpose of this human birth is to Recognize or Understand our True Nature (ਅਪਣੇ ਅਸਲੀ ਸਰੂਪ ਨੂੰ ਪਛਾਣ ਲੈਣਾਂ), and thus become One with our Mool ( ਮੂਲ : Source, Origin, Jot, Reality, ਅਸਲਾ…) within. Once we become One with our Mool within (i.e., become Saabat-Soorat: ਸਾਬਤ ਸੂਰਤਿ…), then we become One with everything else.

  • ਇਉ ਕਹੈ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਮਨ ਤੂੰ ਜੋਤਿ ਸਰੂਪੁ ਹੈ ਅਪਣਾ ਮੂਲੁ ਪਛਾਣੁ ॥੫॥: Thus says Nanak – O mind! Your “Saroop” (form, nature, identity…) is “Joti” (Divine Light). (O mind!) Recognize your Mool (Source, Jot, Origin, Reality…) ||5|| (sggs 441).
  • ਮੂਲੁ ਨ ਬੂਝਹਿ ਆਪਣਾ ਸੇ ਪਸੂਆ ਸੇ ਢੋਰ ਜੀਉ ॥: Moolu na boojhahi aapanaa se pasooaa se dhor jeeou: Those who do not understand their own Mool (Source, Origin, Jot…); they are beasts and they are cattle (i.e., great fools of animal intellect-ਡੰਗਰ ਬੁਧੀ ਵਾਲੇ ਮਹਾਂ ਮੂਰਖ)! (sggs 751).

    “The Gurbani tells us that the very purpose of this human birth is to Recognize or Understand our True Nature”

    Whole lifetimes fit within those quotes for all but a true bakti ..

    Maya is a vast ocean .. and She reliquishes not, to all but the rarest of the rare.
    Were describing that distant and lofty Goal Which is closer than the very self be a matter of description the whole of creation would disappear into bursts of Light without number as sparks returning to the flame.

    Unless you are calling down fire and lighting, now, do as much physical service in universal love as possible.

    An abundance of understanding never liberated anyone. service in love surrender in love and sacrifice in love + time invariably produces the Divine Spark which all wise men seek

    • Thank you Dharmendra Ji for taking time to share your Vichaar.
      The Gurbani indicates Bhagti is to recieve the Gur-Giaan (Gurmat…):
      • ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਮਤਿ ਤੂੰ ਲੇਹਿ ਇਆਨੇ ॥ ਭਗਤਿ ਬਿਨਾ ਬਹੁ ਡੂਬੇ ਸਿਆਨੇ ॥: Gur kee mati toon lehi iaane. Bhagti binaa bahu doobe siaane: You ignorant fool, take the Gurmat (Aatmic-Giaan, Gur-Giaan, Shabad-Vichaar…); without Bhagti, even many clever have drowned. (sggs 288).

      The Gurbani indicates its essential to understand one’s true own self to eradicate doubts:
      • ਜਨ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਿਨੁ ਆਪਾ ਚੀਨੈ ਮਿਟੈ ਨ ਭ੍ਰਮ ਕੀ ਕਾਈ ॥੨॥੧॥: Jan Nanak binu aapaa cheenai mitai n bhram kee kaaee ||2||1||: O Daas Nanak! Without Realizing one’s own self (Original, Essential, or True Nature, etc. – ਆਪਣਾ ਆਤਮਕ ਜੀਵਨ ਪਰਖਣ ਤੋਂ ਬਿਨਾ, etc.), the moss of doubt (ignorance of one’s True Nature, etc.) is not eradicated (from the mind) ||2||1|| (sggs 684). 
      • ਬਿਨੁ ਬੂਝੇ ਪਸੂ ਭਏ ਬੇਤਾਲੇ ॥੬॥: Binu boojhai pasu bhaye betaale ||6||: Without understanding, people become beast (-nature) and demon ||6|| (sggs 224).

      The Gurbani tells us the excellent “Karanee” (“ਕਰਣੀ” – practice, deed, etc.) is the Shabad-Vichaar:
      • ਊਤਮ ਕਰਣੀ ਸਬਦ ਬੀਚਾਰ ॥: Ootam karanee sabad beechaar (sggs 158).

    Old[previous] scripts have clear Gurmukhi alphabets, in the instant casem there are verticle rectangles at those places where there should be spaces. How do I get rid of these to have a clear reading. Other than this, I pay my very very respectful thanks to yourself, and I sincerely pray that God bestows His benedictions on you in an abundant measure so that you continue guiding immortals like me. Am fully [100%] receptive to your thought process, understanding but need to know where you yourself are now. Thanks and regards once again. Bikar

    SSA, I think here Guruji referring Mool to be a Ananad/ Blissful state…. Sehaj Avastha can only b realised through love for God… Guruji teaches that God is within you… I am a seeker…

    • Yes, it’s all is within according to the SGGS.
      We all are seekers (learners, ਸਿਖਿਆਰਤੀ…), learning along with each other!
      Thank you Chitranjan Ji!

    Veer ji,
    After reading ur article. One question arise in my mind. That is… What is mool? We can connect to it through guru. Bt mind always ask what mool you are seeking for? Whats that mool gives for? As veer ji…human mind is always seek for the destiny which it can feel and see through its surat (focus). As only gursikh one can help me with my doubt. As vairagya arise, when we see ultimate mool is very important above all and our mind questions get end… What is that mool? contact – 9999215489

    In my opinion “THE MOOL” as envisaged in gurbaanee is SATTiNAAMu itself.

    • Not one name but many names have been used for “Mool” in the Gurbani — Raam, Hari, Gobind, Gopal, Prabh, Allah, and so on.

      Thank you Veer Ji for taking the time to respond!
