All prevading Oankar through His One Word created the whole expansive cosmos.
Through the five elements, as the quintessence He permeated in the three worlds and their denominations.
That creator could not be seen by anyone who to expand Himself created the infinite nature(prakrti).
He made myriad forms of nature.
In His each one hair He gethered up millions of worlds.
And then in one universe He comes in tens of forms.
He has created many a dear personality such as Vedavyas and Muhammad dear to the Vedas and the Katebas respectively.
How wonderfully the one nature has been expanded into many. will strive to be most comprehensive directory of Historical Gurudwaras and Non Historical Gurudwaras around the world.
