Speculating seriously, seer Gotama has put forth the story of the Rgveda.
After churning the thoughts, in the Nyaya school, God has been defined as the efficient cause of all the causes.
Everything is under His control and in His order, no order whatsoever of anybody else is accepted.
He is in the beginning and at the end of this creation yet in this Shastra he is shown as separate from this creation.
No one has seen or known this creator, and rather people have remained indulged in the expansive delusions of prakriti (nature).
Not realising that soham parbrahm, the jiv is mistaken in understanding Him as a man (full of fallacies).
The Rgveda exhorts the knowledgeable people that supreme Lord is everything and none else can be compared with Him.
Without true Guru this understanding cannot be attained. will strive to be most comprehensive directory of Historical Gurudwaras and Non Historical Gurudwaras around the world.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras. brings to you a unique and comprehensive approach to explore and experience the word of God.
