Ajoonee | ਅਜੂਨੀ

Unborn / Not-incarnated

Joon is a feminine noun and translates as 'birth, existence', the A- suggests 'Beyond'.

God is Unborn, Uncreated, Beyond Incarnation: He Himself, being the Primal Being, no being prior to Him can be conceived.

Sikhism rejects out of hand the theory of incarnation of God. The Guru-Saint thus is not God-incarnate, even though he has all the attributes of a living, human God and so identified with Him, as is his Word the (disembodied) embodiment of the Gur through which he reveals his God-nature.
