Duality is an experience. This or that. Me and them. God and man. Black and white. When you experience that it is all lila - God's play - and that what seems to be opposite are in fact all parts of the One, that is the experience of Ik Ong Kaar. Duality is the veil, the illusion of maya. Behind the seeming opposites, there is only the One. Dust and diamonds, gold and clay, praise and blame are one and the same. It is only lobh and hankar that make them appear different.

Thank you guruka singh. You are so wise and I hope to learn more from you. (Literally in awe, at how wise you are). And i only pray that you grow even more spiritually. So you said duality is a veil, and behind everything is one, only one. Is that the logic behind how there is no good or bad, it is what it is. And since we are all his creations(good people and bad people) there is god in all of us. what a wonderful way to live, if one truly understands bani it is the end of all suffering also there is a line (cant remember exactly) But it is something along these lines (when one considers one a friend and other an enemy , he shall find no peace) Is that the idea (we should try to erase duality) Do i make sense or do i have the wrong logic? Tysm for your help.
