Question. In which city, state and country the so called meeting of  Guru Gobind Singh with  Akal Purakh took place? We could not find this in any Atlas.
Answer. Guru Gobind Singh ji in his autobiography (Apni Katha) in Bachitra Natak  has given detailed account of his meeting and dialogue with Akalpurakh.  He says that “When I was engrossed in His meditation, He called me and sent me to this World with the blessings, “I have ordained you as my son. You go to the world,   spread and propagate the message of the panth. While doing so, ensure that the people desist from sinful life.”
ਤਪ ਸਾਧਤ ਹਰਿ ਮੋਹਿ ਬੁਲਾਯੋ ॥ਇਮ ਕਹਿ ਕੈ ਇਹ ਲੋਕ ਪਠਾਯੋ ॥28॥
ਅਕਾਲ ਪ੍ਰਰਖ ਬਾਚ ॥ ਚੇੰਪਈ ॥
ਮੈ ਅਪਨਾ ਸੁਤ ਤੋਹਿ ਨਿਵਾਜਾ ॥ਪੰਥ ਪ੍ਰਚੁਰ ਕਰਬੇ ਕਹੁ ਸਾਜਾ ॥
ਜਾਹਿ ਤਹਾਂ ਤੈ ਧਰਮੁ ਚਲਾਇ ॥ਕਬੁਧਿ ਕਰਨ ਤੇ ਲੋਕ ਹਟਾਇ ॥29॥
Here Guru Gobind Singh ji is narrating his meeting with the Lord. These remarks are from sri mukh vaak i.e. uttered by Guruji himself. This a message shrouded in mysticism and can be deciphered and apprehended only by a faithful mind. A controverter can not sip this spiritual nectar,
Those who deny and doubt this meeting should remember that even Guru Nanak Dev ji has mentioned of his meeting with the Lord.
ਢਾਢੀ ਸਚੈ ਮਹਲਿ ਖਸਮਿ ਬੁਲਾਇਆ ॥
ਸਚੀ ਸਿਫਤਿ ਸਾਲਾਹ ਕਪੜਾ ਪਾਇਆ ॥(ਮ. 1. 150)
Then Guru Arjan Dev ji also makes a mention that God Himself met him and presented a siropao to him.
ਸੁਣੀ ਪੁਕਾਰ ਸਮਰਥ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਬੰਧਨ ਕਾਟਿ ਸਵਾਰੇ ॥
ਪਹਿਰਿ ਸਿਰਪਾਉ ਸੇਵਕ ਜਨ ਮੇਲੇ ਨਾਨਕ ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਪਹਾਰੇ ॥(ਮ.5  631)
Guru Arjan Dev ji goes on to say that the holy turban adorned by him is in fact a gift from God to him.
ਹਉ ਗੋਸਾਈ ਦਾ ਪਹਿਲਵਾਨੜਾ ॥
ਮੈ ਗੁਰ ਮਿਲਿ ਉਚ ਦੁਮਾਲੜਾ ॥(ਮ. 5. 74)
Guru Arjan Dev ji  informs that when Guru Ram Das ji  went abode God himself was there to receive him and offered Guru Ram Das ji His own throne and made him sit on that.
ਦੇਵ ਪੁਰੀ ਮਹਿ ਗਯਉ ਆਪਿ ਪਰਮੇਸ੍ਵਰ ਭਾਯਉ ॥
ਹਰਿ ਸਿੰਘਾਸਣੁ ਦੀਅਉ ਸਿਰੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਤਹ ਬੈਠਾਯਉ ॥(1409)
Now do these ‘wise men’ look for the place and location in the globe where Guru Sahiban met God?
An amusing question ends with an amusing remarks.  Akbar Allahabadi, Judge, scholar and poet of excellence tells that how can you convince these loved ones about the abode of God, who are looking for it on a map in the Geography books.
ਕਯੋਂ ਕਰ ਖ਼ੁਦਾ ਕੇ ਅਰਸ਼ ਕੇ ਕਾਯਲ ਹੋਂ ਯੇਹ ਅਜ਼ੀਜ਼?
ਜੁਗਰਾਫੀਆ ਮੇਂ ਅਰਸ਼ ਕਾ ਨਕਸ਼ਾ ਨਹੀਂ ਮਿਲਾ॥
