Eyes of Vichaar

In the SGGS, the Gurbani’s sublime Saroop (nature, form, etc.) is revealed as “Nirankaar” (Formless), Truth, Amrit, and so on.

  • ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਸਬਦੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਹਰਿ ਬਾਣੀ ॥: The Shabad is the Amrit; the Hari Baanee is the Amrit (sggs 119).
  • ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਹੈ ਜਿਤੁ ਪੀਤੈ ਤਿਖ ਜਾਇ ॥: The Gur-Shabad is the Amrit; drinking it in, thirst (of Maya) is quenched (sggs 35).
  • ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਮੀਠਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਵੀਚਾਰਿ ॥ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਭੋਗੇ ਹਉਮੈ ਮਾਰਿ ॥: The Shabad-Vichaar is the Amrit. By subduing ego, (the Gurmukh) enjoys it night and day (sggs 424).
  • ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਰਸੁ ਪੀਉ ॥: Drink in the Amrit of the Gur-Shabad (sggs 891).
  • ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਬਦੁ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਹੈ ਸਾਰੁ ॥: For those who have become the Gurmukh, the Shabad is the most excellent Amrit (sggs 932).
  • ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਬਾਣੀ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਹੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਜੇਵਡੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥: Vaahu vaahu baanee nirankaar hai tisu jevadu avaru na koi (sggs 515).
  • ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਚੁ ਹੈ ਸਚਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਾ ਹੋਇ ॥: Vaahu vaahu baanee sachu hai sachi milaavaa hoi (sggs 514).

This Saroop of the Gurbani cannot be seen with the physical eyes.

Also, It cannot be seen by just reading, hearing, or repeating the Gurbani.

The eyes of Vichaar are needed to see It!

A person having such Vision is called in the Gurbani the Gurmukh (follower of Truth and truthfull living, etc.).

ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਚੁ ਹੈ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਲਧੀ ਭਾਲਿ ॥: Vaahu vaahu baanee sachu hai guramukhi ladhhee bhaali (sggs 514).
