Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is the Shabad Guru. It is the Mansarovar of Puran Braham Gyan, the Ocean of Divinity. As Sikhs, we all call Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji our Guru. But, let us take a few minutes and truly look inside ourselves. Let us truly analyze our behavior by asking a few questions. Do we understand at all what the Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is telling us? If we do understand, then do we believe it? If we do understand and believe it, then are we trying to put it into practice? If we are not doing what Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is telling us, then are we really honoring it as a Guru?
If the answers to any of these questions or all of the questions are negative, then we are still doing what our mind is telling us to do. We are not doing what the Guru is telling us to do. We are still Munnmukhs (self-centred). Our mind is being controlled by and run by the five thieves plus jealousy, gossip and slander (Eerka, Nindya and Chugalee). Since our mind acts and reacts under the influence of these enemies of ours, then these are our real Gurus and not Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
