Siri guru jee is using a very beautiful metaphor to explain the reality of this world. Siri Guru jee says that there is a weak deer in a thick forest that has a beautiful pond and green vegetation. Such conditions as described above are every deer’s heaven. What more can a deer ask for but abundance of green vegetation (food for them) and a pond for water?

The next pankiti however adds another dimension to this. Amidst such beautiful atmosphere, the weak deer is being chased by hundreds of thousands of hunters. How long can the deer survive in such atmosphere (kaetha bancho kaal)? Not too long.

Deer is the jeev (jeev-aatma who has taken birth as human) while all the green vegetation and the pond is this world. Thousands of hunters are different kinds of dangers that this jeev faces everyday. How long can this jeev live in this supposedly beautiful world and enjoy the fruits of it? The answer is very short period of time. Since this jeev is here only temporarily, why should it indulge in the pleasures of this world?

This is what I have understood? If I am able to add anything to it, I will post it here later.

Daas,
