But, the Guru’s reply to them is very revealing of his new thesis because he asserted that it is the Naths who did not know even the elementaries of the spiritual path. What we wish to emphasize is that it is not just incidental, but it is the very logic of Guru Nanak’s system that involved on the one hand the rejection of monasticism, asceticism, celibacy and Ahimsa and on the other hand led to the creation of an organized and disciplined society that accepted total social responsibility.
