Who is Guru who is Chela?

 Who is Guru who is Chela?

ਤੇਰਾ ਕਵਣੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਜਿਸ ਕਾ ਤੂ ਚੇਲਾ ॥

ਸਬਦੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਧੁਨਿ ਚੇਲਾ ॥

Above Tuks (lines) are from spiritual interfaith dialogue between Guru Nanak and Hindu Siddhas (three Nath Yogis) at Batala.

Bangarnath one of the three Nath Siddhas asked Guru Nanak:

ਤੇਰਾ ਕਵਣੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਜਿਸ ਕਾ ਤੂ ਚੇਲਾ ॥

“Who is your Guru and whos disciple are you?”

Guru Sahib's answer to them was:

ਸਬਦੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਧੁਨਿ ਚੇਲਾ ॥

“The Shabad is the Guru, upon whom I lovingly focus my consciousness; I am the chaylaa, the disciple.”

Shabad Surat Naam Abhyaas in Gurmat is a process of spiritual journey of reciting Naam from Vaikhari to Madhyama to Pashyanti to Para level. It builds the bridge between the Jiva with the formless Vaheguru and leads to salvation, merging into the truest of the True. It is meditative remembrance.

It is the way to instruct the mind, attain true understanding, so it will never suffer beatings again. The mind is attached and attuned to the unstruck sound current. It eradicates egoism and attachment. Discard sexual desire, anger and egotism.

The liberation cap is made of five elements: body the meditation mat, mind the loin cloth; truth, contentment and self-discipline be the companions. 

Liberation can be attained while living in this world. One who realizes the Shabad of the One who created the creation, it is the true realisation. Manmukh loses, Gurmukh wins (merges in truth). Gurmukh finds the door of liberation and merges in Truth.

This is Gurmat.
