Who can grab sand? Who can hold the wind? Who can touch the light? Who can stop the time? Sand slips, Wins blows, Light passes through and Time keeps moving. All tangible entities but still far from human grasp. So, how ‘The One Formless Eternal True Lord’ can be grabbed by mortals? ‘He’ is the creator but still human mind wanders in all realm of darkness and ignorance to find the reason, the purpose, ‘The Creator’ of entities which confuse him.
Entities he may observe and even try to understand but they still stay away from his comprehension. So, how could he even comprehend ‘The One Formless Eternal True Lord’ responsible for creation of such entities. If creation is beyond understanding then how ‘Creator’ can be in reach of mortal comprehension.
But again ‘He’ Who is compassionate, Who loves every creation of ‘His’ realized there should be ‘Someone’ who mortals can perceive and ‘He’ manifested as ‘Dhan Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’. Now mortal could see ‘His Grace’. They could feel blissful. Thus began an era in human evolution which witnessed efforts of ‘Baba Nanak’ to attach ‘Mortal Zeros’ with ‘Immortal – The One’. And suddenly the values of zeros began to grow manifold.
Mortals now could touch ‘Manifestation of Immortality’. But only they reached pinnacle who accepted ‘Baba Nanak’ as ‘Satguru – True Guru’. Mortals could see or should I say could get glimpse of ‘Formless’ but again only those realized ‘The Creator’ who surrendered their head to ‘Baba Nanak’. This continued as ‘The Greatest Guru’s Light’ transcended in ‘Nine More Physical Forms’.
And just to ensure mortals are not seduced by mere flesh ‘Paatshahi 10’ established ‘The Light of Baba Nanak’ in ‘Dhan Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji’. Hence complete the journey from ‘Formless to Formless’. Yes ‘Gurbaani’ is ‘Formless and True Guru’. In words of Dhan Shri Guru Amar Das Ji:
ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਬਾਣੀ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਹੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਜੇਵਡੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥
(Waaho! Waaho! is the Bani, the Word, of the Formless Lord. There is no other as great as He is.)
