These two terms are common but very few people appreciate the difference. In Gurbaani, the word "PAEKHNA" or perceive is used quite often because Baani being spiritual and not of the flesh is to be understood in spirit. Things of the flesh could be seen by the two biological eyes but the things of spirit could be perceived only by the Third Eye of mind.
MUNN ANAHAN JANUM GOWAIYA
Satguru(Christ) Jesus has differentiated the two in the Parable of Nicodemus in John 3 but very few people understand that simple analogy and carry on thinking what the others say. In that Parable, Jesus said you see the leaves of the tree moving but what make them move you cannot see but you have to perceive. The application of this Saying is that you "see" the people of different countries and tribes moving around but what makes them living is the spirit of God, which you cannot "see" but you have to "perceive". In the same way, He stressed that what is born of flesh is flesh and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. This is a bit difficult to grasp as many still believe that God, the Spirit, created Adam and Eve, the mythological persons. Here people failed to differentiate between the demi-god Brahma and God Paar Brahm.
Knowledge of what you can see is imparted by the school and university teachers, called Pandits, who through teaching explain the moral laws; whereas the things of spirit which you cannot "see" but have to "perceive" are to be learnt through the Gospel imparted by a Satguru to those whose mind is capable of perceiving. Therefore, a Pandit and his subject matter could be seen by the eyes and they could be represented through pictures, statues or idols whereas the subject matter of the Satguru being of spirit, could not be seen or represented in pictures or idols but rather received through perceptions. That is the pictures of parents, relations, etc. could be seen by the two eyes and they could be worshipped but that of the Satguru is perceived in our hearts through understanding the Gospel, the Baani, delivered by Him. A Pandit guru is to be "seen" "DAEKHNA" whilst a Satguru is to be "perceived" "PAEKHNA".
In the same way, a Sikh being a student of spiritual knowledge cannot be "seen" "DAEKHAIYA" by his turban or beard but "perceived" or "PAEKHAIYA" by what comes out of his mouth. Further, as a Sikh was not born, he never dies and those who proclaim that Sikhs are dying or have died are "KOORRIYAARS", the sons of Satan. That is a Sikh is a "NAADI ROOP" and not a BINDI ROOP that was born and dies.
What is "seen" with your "eyes" could be SACH or JHOOTHH but what you perceive through the Third Eye of mind is either SATT or KOORR. Like SACH, SATT is very bitter indeed whilst KOORR is sweeter than honey but ruins boat load of people as it did during the partition of India when Hindu, Sikh, Muslim were declared as tribes, KAUMS or BINDI ROOPS. Now, if there is a war between India and Pakistan, mostly Jats who form the backbone of forces will die and not a Sikh, Hindu or Muslim. The people who will incite them will be the satanic Lalas, the Khatris, Sheikhs, etc.
MAKANAH JATTAN DAE GHARAHAN VICH; GIDHHAE SHAITAN KHATRIAN ATTAE SHEIKHAN DAE GHARAHAN VICH PAEN GAE.
Foolish Jats will not understand even then otherwise they won't be foolish anymore.
This being the Age of SATT and not of the SACH, that is why it is said:-
"ISS THAAL VICH TIN VASTO BHEOW; SATT, SANTOKH VICHARO(FIND OUT) It is a Parable or BUJARAT.
