    Is the Sikh God Evil?

    Pls all for God's sake stop attacking each other. When Guru Gobind Singh Sahib was asked which 'panth is better he never said mine .. he answered " Tumhe tumhara khoob humein hamaara khoob" i.e U love Urs. I love mine. We are not supposed to disrespect any religion just because most of us have less knowledge about Christianity ...we are not able to compare and answer doesn't mean we will find flaws and attack each other. We don't force anyone to 'convert' but @LetsSee if u have come to this forum probably u have some unanswered questions One of the common points in both our religion is that we Sikhs just like Muslims and Christians believe in one God, but unlike Christians and Muslims we don't believe in the existence of Satan or . Our Babaji talks about MAYA instead who's also the creation of one God. There's NO ONE EXCEPT HIM. HE CREATED ALL . Even Maya with whose three vices we are all influenced and perform negative things.. Who can compare. the two religions better than one the who has been a Christian for 44 yrs and then stepped into Sikhism and is loving it. Pls watch

    I wish to take Amrit

    Thanks much If you would really worry about what OTHERS are saying .. u would never be happy. People called Nanak Sahib bhutna , betaala... Kabeer ji was also cursed by his own mother ... Dekh k andith karo. Forget what others say.. do wat makes the Guru happy. Moreover Amrit will bring good vices on its own. ATB

    I wish to take Amrit

    Bhen ji I have removed the link and the picture from your post in my quote of it. I do want to take amrit and luckly with Waheguru's kirpa my nitnem banis is quite good. I just have a few a few loose strings left to finish before taking amrit. Like my mum said take it when you get career wise ready etc. The other annoying thing is how people like from family friend etc tease people who are religious with pharses like granthi bhai etc. I get annoyed so I give rude answers back when someone says this to me.

    Bhen ji it does seem like a complicated situation from what you have mentioned. I myself have not taken amrit yet but with Waheguru's kirpa I know the panj banis and many other banis. So perhaps you can try to increase your paaths banis and show how desperately you would like to take amrit then maybe your husband will be happy for you to take it.

    Talibanisation Of Sikhi

    You are right veer ji here is a detailed video I found on Gurmatbibek YouTube page about this. ਪਟਕਾ ਸਿਖੀ ਦੇ ਉਲਟ ਹੈ, ਜਾਣੋ ਕਿਉਂ। Patka is Against Sikhi, Find Out Why

    Talibanisation Of Sikhi

    Yeah, the patka was invented by a cricketer called Bishan Singh Bedi during the 60's so it has no real history in sikhi. I feel it looks ridiculous, parna is better.

    Compound exercises works for me best.. Just hit mid 30's 3 x a week..heavy weight, each session 3-4 sets of each exercise (reps anything from 4-8/9) squats/deadlifts, bench, military press, barbell back row. once a week bag work to keep flexibility and sharpness.. As you get older diet is more key than quantity of training... pre workout is 2 eggs and toast with peanut butter.. post workout is a good steak, lamb or beef.. good solid protein with fats and gives you that testosterone feeling as you eat.. Young cats...advice to learn arts more than weights.. weights always there but martial art needs to be learnt early imo..

    It is a matter of consistent and continued practice. After some time, usually after 40 days, you will notice that you are reciting the same Shabad in less time. The following structure may help you understand the mechanism: " Baikhri: These are labial sounds or sounds which are uttered with the aid of tongue and lips. It is when God's Name is recited with tongue and lips. It is the first technique and holds 1 unit in power. [takes the most time] Madhma: These are guttural sounds which are produced in the throat or at the back or root of the tongue and palate. It is when God's Name is recited within the throat but without the use of the tongue. This is 10 times the power of Baikhri. [takes less time than 1] Pashyanti: These are sounds which originate from the heart center. It is when God's Name is recited within the heart but without the use of the tongue. This is 100 times the power of Baikhri. [takes less time than 2] Para: These are sounds which arise through vibrations from the navel center. It is when God's Name is recited within the navel but without the use of the tongue. This is 1000 times the power of Baikhri. [takes less time than 3]." Finally, state of intense devotion, love, and emotional fervor while reciting the Shabad goes a long way in expediting the process.

    Is the Sikh God Evil?

    Your God decided to save Lot and his family, the same Lot who offered his own daughters to be gangraped by his fellow citizens and the same daughters who then fornicated with their father because they couldn't find a man. I wouldn't throw stones while standing in a glass house my friend, I can go on and on about how the God of the bible constantly says he's merciful but then decides to destroy everyone because he's enraged or upset over something, or how he goes about saving a pious soul who ends up doing some pretty dark shit, example as above. I'm glad you're using the King James bible though, the one that was altered about 400 years ago, just like the bible all through history, maybe churn out your original manuscripts before attacking others . I see you seem to use "XDDDDDDDDDDD" all the time, I'll take this as an indication you're either a really young child or an overgrown manchild, so take this from here. Using a wiki source is both stupid and inaccurate, if you want to learn about Sikhism (and its pretty apparent you don't as you see this as a dong measuring contest and want to prove your faith is superior) then go and watch basics of Sikhi videos on youtube. They will (as the name suggests) give you the basics. Maybe rather than asking us if The Sikh God is evil, you should ask why your God is doing exactly as you describe above. God is letting Satan run rampant, he's letting all those kids die, It seems your God favours people like Lot and his family over everyone else, So God seems to favour incestuous offspring and their father who'd sooner offer his won daughters as fodder for a mob than defend his own ideals, he chooses all that over a poor starving African who's done nothing wrong (according to your gospel).

    Is the Sikh God Evil?

    You may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again." Exodus 21: 7-8 Slavery is allowed in the bible as well as sex slavery. Hmmmmm I will not comment anymore

    I guess first they thought he was associated with some organization but later on they realised he was just an angry victim of 1984. Also Rajiv did not show much anger towards him and he completed his life sentence in 2000.

    Let me share with you one Vaar of Bhai Gurdas.In this vaar Bhai Gurdas explains the miserable plight of a human Beign Very interesting read in todays context: ਕਲਿ ਆਈ ਕੁਤੇ ਮੁਹੀ ਖਾਜੁ ਹੋਇਆ ਮੁਰਦਾਰ ਗੁਸਾਈ। Kali Aaee Kutay Muhee Khaaju Hoiaa Muradaar Gusaaee | O God! in kaliyug , the mentality of the jiv has become like the mouth of dog which always seeks the dead to eat. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੧ ਰਾਜੇ ਪਾਪ ਕਮਾਵਦੇ ਉਲਟੀ ਵਾੜ ਖੇਤ ਕਉ ਖਾਈ। Raajay Paapu Kamaanvaday Ulatee Vaarh Khayt Kau Khaaee | The kings are sinning as if the protective fence were itself devouring the (crop in the) field. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੨ ਪਰਜਾ ਅੰਧੀ ਗਿਆਨ ਬਿਨੁ ਕੂੜੁ ਕੁਸਤਿ ਮੁਖਹੁ ਆਲਾਈ। Prajaa Andhee Giaan Binu Koorh Kusatu Mukhahu Aalaaee | Bereft of knowledge, the blind people are uttering falsehood. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੩ ਚੇਲੇ ਸਾਜ ਵਜਾਇਦੇ ਨਚਨਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਬਿਧਿ ਭਾਈ Chaylay Saaj Vajaaiday Nachani Guroo Bahutu Bidhi Bhaaee | Now the gurus are dancing variously to the tunes played by the disciples. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੪ ਸੇਵਕ ਬੈਠਨਿ ਘਰਾ ਵਿਚਿ ਗੁਰ ਉਠਿ ਘਰੀ ਤਿਨਾੜੇ ਜਾਈ। Chaylay Baithhani Gharaan Vichi Guru Uthhi Ghareen Tinaarhay Jaaee | The taughts now sit at home and the teachers go their abodes. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੫ ਕਾਜੀ ਹੋਏ ਰਿਸਵਤੀ ਵਢੀ ਲੈ ਕੈ ਹਕ ਗਵਾਈ। Kaajee Hoay Risavatee Vaddhee Lai Kai Haku Gavaaee | Qazis enjoy bribes and getting the same they have lost their high regards and position. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੬ ਇਸਤ੍ਰੀ ਪੁਰਖੈ ਦਾਮ ਹਿਤੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਆਇ ਕਿਥਾਊ ਜਾਈ। Isatree Purakhay Daami Hitu Bhaavai Aai Kidaaoon Jaaee | Man and woman love each other for riches, may they come from anywhere. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੭ ਵਰਤਿਆ ਪਾਪ ਸਭਸ ਜਗ ਮਾਂਹੀ ॥੩੦॥ Varatiaa Paapu Sabhasi Jagi Maanhee ||30 || The sin has become ubiquitous in the whole world. ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੩੦ ਪੰ. ੮

    Talibanisation Of Sikhi

    You know during the British colonization of India many sikhs and hindus were depicted as inferior idiots, so, I won't believe anything they depict or print. Why do you have to wear a 'parna', a 'patka' or a 'chunni' to keep your heads covered while playing sport or going about your daily errands? Think, how do they play gatka and ride and jump high on the horses with their dastars intact in India on basaakhi celebrations? Did the Guru ji's brave fauj fight their battles with patkas, chunnies and parnas tied on their heads? I am sure even they had to make sudden and unexpected movements with their limbs in the battlefields during the wars! I think the only time their dastar came off was when they were killed and not before that!! Making excuses and laziness is not very constructive and if a sikh can't handle a dastar on his or her head, how can they handle life and its problems without losing their cool? It is our apathy that makes us substiute our dastar with parnas and the likes. I will never show my face to the world without my dastar on whether I am playing cricket, football, hockey or skiing on the slopes of Switzerland or Whistler!

    The 5 khands in Sri Japuji Sahib

    Very good! I totally agree that they are spiritual for self journey. But they can also be 'experienced' in terms of your own consciousness, as to the stages that it has to ascend i it's spiritual transformation. Funny thing is that over the years, I've done a few little self interpretations here and there that are mostly a little botched, and un-sequenced,... because I've probably taken a little bit from here and there with all the different variations that exist in sikhi world! ...However, nowadays,... I see it a little more clearly and actually realise that all the information and facts you will ever need were mostly right there in the pauris from 34 beginning with "Rati ruti tithi var" . DHARAM Khand, like Gurpreet says, is the 1st stage of realisation or as I would describe ->the Path of DHARAM. Guru Nanak ji tells us,.. that we are on earth, which is itself a DHARMSAAL. DHARAMSAAL is described as what I understand, an old "inn" or meeting place/place of rest/ some en route location. ..etc,, This means that we ALL start here or end up here, no matter what dharam. A single Dharam is required as the path to the top of the mountain. If we imagine all the different dharams as individual paths to the top, and we can only walk on one single one all the way according to where and what situation/place we are in. DHARAMSAAL, in it stopover sense, shows that, we/manukhs, are all here in the Dharamsaal according to our KARAMS and our binding to the Lak chaurasi joon cycle. It becomes apparent from gurbani later on, that we are all in the same lakh chaurasi cycle, and have this one-off opportunity to take DHARAM. I may be wrong, but I understand, that as our first steps and reason for ending up in this joon; is to work on BOTH our KARAM and DHARAM. (not to confuse the 'karams' here with KARAMKHAND later on) Overall, in these 5 khand pauris, Guruji has explained the route or journey to -->> SACHKHAND, and to which we can transform our consciousness into 'permanently'. Sachkhand is actually existing here and everywhere because ''Sackhand vasai Nirankar'' and Nirankar is himself the creator and in the creation (remember- Farida Khalak Khalk Meh Khalk Vasay Rab Maahe "The Creator God Is In The Creation, And The Creation Abides In God" ).. He is the All-pervading, all-knowing, right here, right now. So Sachkhand is not some million miles away. I can try explain in more depth and following the gurbani- tuks when I get more time......but in a nutshell,.... We start by taking path of DHARAM KHAND and working our KARAMS. Gurbani explains in many places after japji, that taking DHARAM and giving full devotion of self seva, self sacrificing Mat and haumai to satguru.-->, can get you walking the mountain path in Hukam, as per gurmukh and being in 100% gurmat. This will start erasing all your karams one by one! ..... this is 1st DHARAMKHAND realm. (Amerdeep ji questioned of why khands are never mentioned again in bani?...and I would understand that all the bani that follows, expounds and opens up in depth of exactly how one is to transform their consciousness after taking birth on the Dharamsaal to get to Sachkhand). Also, in another thread, I explained my understanding of the later jath pahara tirajh suniar/ Goldsmith verse as being a technique of helping you practice and realise yourself in this transforming process, by using technique of NAAM JAP. when one starts Dharam khand steps. Second stage is GYAAN KHAND. and this stage begins when Naad becomes manifest. (Gyan Khand meh gyan patchand, tithai NAAD binodh kod anand)...or should I say that Gyan begins at Naad. The gyaan is not just intuitive knowledge. But it is a continuous gyaan of increased awareness, consciousness expansion, ridd sidh- nau nidh and all the signals mentioned in prabh ka simran pauri of sukhmani sahib lets say... all the washing of dirt from mann, purification ,,gyaan to help power 5 dhuts etc Then is SARAM KHAND and KARAM KHAND, which are very close and describe the path/stage leading one up to "Sacha Darbar" or the court of the lord. These are the heavens that are mentioned in many faiths and assumed to be final destinations,... but Guru Nanak Dev ji has given us the ultimate guide to beyond these angelic heavens and joys that sit outside the door of Waheguru's darbar. (I'm sure that heavens are not sachkhand). Saram Khand and Karam Khand are described as being near impossible to depict or express, but Dhan dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji sachey patshah has given the nishanees (insignias) with subtle hints in those pauris, so that they can be acknowledged and recognized to the seeker.
