My question seems to be very clear. No need of explanation I guess.

Dear Anonymous,

the fragrance of the ambrosial divine name of god is so sweet and engrossing that its aroma is incomparable. It surpasses the fragrance of sweet smelling earthly objects like musk,sandalwood and other aromatic essences. all the foul smelling passions within the heart are changed to fragrant feeling in the soul of one who meditates on the divine name. it however does not that he who contemplates the divine name loses all sense of discrimination between sweet and foul smell. His powers are like those of other human being with such a spiritual aroma that no foul smell can reach his inner senses. Like Guru Ram Das said in Rag nat, pg 982 : 'like a dear, man wanders in the wilderness attracted by enchanting fragrance,not knowing that the aromatic sweet smell comes from the musk within the body.' I hope this helped Waheguru jio!
