  1. WHILE DIFFERENT RELIGIONS BLINDLY QUARREL AND FIGHT TO IMPOSE AND CONVERT OTHERS TO THEIRS, THE SIMLICITY AND BEAUTY OF TEACHINGS OF GURU SAHIBAN ARE UNIVERSAL FOR ALL MANKIND, IRRESPECTIVE OF CATSE, CLASS , NATIONALITY OR RELIGION, FULL OF MERCY, LOVE AND BLISS. FOLLOWING ARE JUST A FEW VERSES OF SREE GURU NANAK DEV, WHICH CONFIRM THE ABOVE STATEMENT AND WHICH FAIRLY AND CORRECTLY DESCRIBE THE HIGHEST TRUE LORD. ਬਲਿਹਾਰੀ ਕੁਦਰਤਿ ਵਸਿਆ Balihaaree Kudharath Vasiaa I am a sacrifice to Your almighty creative power which is pervading everywhere. ਤੇਰਾ ਅੰਤੁ ਨ ਜਾਈ ਲਖਿਆ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ Thaeraa Anth N Jaaee Lakhiaa ||1|| Rehaao || Your limits cannot be known ਜਾਤਿ ਮਹਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਜੋਤਿ ਮਹਿ ਜਾਤਾ ਅਕਲ ਕਲਾ ਭਰਪੂਰਿ ਰਹਿਆ Jaath Mehi Joth Joth Mehi Jaathaa Akal Kalaa Bharapoor Rehiaa || Your Light is in Your creatures, and Your creatures are in Your Light; Your almighty power is pervading everywhere. * In this verse above, He is saying, there is no such being in which He does not exist, be it a muslim, a hindu, a christian, a buddhist, or even animals or non believers, or even in the different gods, devtays, incarnations, prophets.... ਤੂੰ ਸਚਾ ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਸਿਫਤਿ ਸੁਆਲ੍ਹ੍ਹਿਉ ਜਿਨਿ ਕੀਤੀ ਸੋ ਪਾਰਿ ਪਇਆ Thoon Sachaa Saahib Sifath Suaaliho Jin Keethee So Paar Paeiaa || You are the True Lord and Master; Your Praise is so beautiful. One who sings it, is carried across. *And in this verse above, He proclaims that, this very Lord which is already within each and everbody and place, no need for foolish hatred , and He is so merciful, that without any conversions, killings or disputes, if anyone just sings His praises, that being, that soul is carried across from this plane of falsehood and dissolution, to His abode of love, bliss and eternity. This is the unique wadeeayee(greatness) of the teachings of our beloved Guru Sahiban, namely sikhee. Sat Sree Akal.
  2. Beautiful topic/thread, indeed. But let us not forget, nobody can love Him, if it is not by His grace. Forget to love, but, even no one can, even think about Him. To those whom He wants to reunite with Him, through the strings of His Love, then we become restless and can not resist His pull from within. So every action or step of ours towards Him, is nothing, but Him pulling us, which no one can resist. Thus it can be well said: Sach kahoo sun leho sabeh, Jin prem kiyo tinhee Prabh paayo. He makes us love Him by His apaar kirpa, only then do we play the game of love with Him, by loving Him utmost. But to love Him not by mere words, nor any rituals nor fanatism, but by being fully engrossed in His bhakti. That is the way of love to reunite and merge in Him. So which is that way to love Him and merge in Him? In simple words, Fifth Patshahee reveals us the secret of highest spiituality, when He tells us: Jin Har japeeya, se Har hoeeya. As simple as that. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.

  7. The Bani very clearly and beautifully in simple words says: Aapay Satgur, Aapay Har, Aapay mel milawe. They Guru Sahiban, Gurmukh Jan, Bhagat Jan, Brahmgyani, are the very manifestation of Akal Purukh. If a particle of that Anhad Bani, Jot, or even Dhun, can take a human form as a living being, or even any living form, what makes you think, He can not come at our level to explain His own mysteries, of which we dumb human beings can not even remotely ever in our wildest dreams can come to know about it. You see, there where He is, only He is, and any number of jeevas who go there, not by their efforts or merits, but by His apaar kirpa, just merge and bcome with Him without any distinction. We are not talking about gods, godesses, devis, devtays, where even after so many austerities jap or tap, the devotee of that spiritual entity, be it in Swarg or Baikunth, remain as individual entities as such for a time being, then again, both at dfferent times have to find their way. It is only in Wahiguru, where the jeeva by His kirpa alone, becomes blended in one for ever with Him, not otherwise. You see, no gods, no angels, nobody can know anything about Him, unless He himself wants to disclose Himself to anyone. And if it has to be so, it has to be by a Gurmukh, otherwsie we are all lost souls. At other place as the Bani says : Bhoolay marg jinay batayaa, aisaa Gur wadbhagee paaya. For the whole world is totally absorbed in their own manmat of the devotion towards Him, but it is only when we come in contact with His Bhagat Jan, that we become aware that, the real path of reuniting ourselves with Him, is only by boarding on Nam jahaaz, which we can only know, when He himself comes at our level, to speak in our understable terms, otherwise He is subtler than the subtlest of the beings. Nobody can be forced to believe anything, but if we look at our Guru Sahiban, and pay focused attention to the Bani, we can come to the conclusion, that He can assume a human form, just to reveal us His myteries, even then, His real form is the Shabad in action in that Gurmukh, in that Bhagat, in that Brahmgyani, for that Shabad is a supraconsciousness force, or call it energy, but never ever it can be the body, for the body of any being, is made of the 5 insentient tattwas. If the physicall form of Guru Jee was the true one, it had come as such, right from the beginning, and not be born as an infant, who grows into an adult then pass on the old age ... It is the Truth of Nam or Shabad which works in that particular body, for a certain period of time, then the body decays, and the body of the 5 elements gets dissolved into their origin, but the Shabad Guru, manifested in that body, returns or goes wherever They think fit, to carry their work of a boatman, which takes the jeevas from the mahabhavsagar, to the shore of Sach Khand. So you see, the body is not the Guru, and it has never been, but is just a vehicle, to get expressed, to us the limited and dumb human beings in our own terms. Other thing is, our consciouss level is very low, so we see only the limited, but not the power or Jot in that physical form of Guru Sahiban. Otherwise why would the Bani say : Jeh sau chandaa ugveh, suraj charey hazar, bin Satgur ghor andhaar. Moreover within this fragile limited human form, He Himself resides, otherwise why would it be called Har mandir? You see, He is Infinite yet subtle. We relate big with space, that is why our sense fails to understand Him, you see, within us, He the Lord, and all the kainaat exists, if that was physical how could the holy scriptures say that He is within us, isn´t it? We are weak and confused, but the Guru Sahiban are the manifestation of Him at our level, otherwise He is apaar and alakh, for us limited beings. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  8. First of all KB31 Jee, thanks for bringing forward, such a beautiful topic. Sikhism is a religion if only we understand what the term religion means. The word religion, comes from the latin word "religare", which means that which reunites with the origin. So, if only we follow implicitly the core teachings, or let us say the teachings of Guru Sahiban, without any adulterations, additions, or substractions, then of course the jeeva atma merges in its origin Wahiguru Akal Purukh, thus the defintion of the wordreligion is completed, not otherwise. If we had to expalin anybody in simple words, how in Sikhee that purpose of our union with Him is achieved, then I would mention the following few verses from the Gurbani, which summarizes without any doubt, the final stage in religion, if the required conditions take place: 1) Awar kaaj, tere kitay na kaam, mil Sadh Sangat bhaj kewal Nam. 2) Nanak Nam, jahaaz hae, jin chareeya sey utareeya paar. 3) Ik Oankar Satgur parsad jap 4) Sarab Dharam Meh Shresht Dharam Har Ko Naam Jap Nirmal Karam. 5) Nam jiskay man vaseeya, vajeh Shabad ganere. You see, from the teachings of Guru Jee, we come to know that everything revolves around Nam/Shabad and His Kirpa. From Nam, everything originated, and so, if it is in Nam that we have to merge, then that can only be achieved by Nam japna, for that Nam japna, makes pargat within us the Jot and the Anhad Dhun or Anhad Shabad itself, which constantly emanates from that origin, which Satguru Nanak since the very begining says: Ik Oankar, Satnam. Which means, there is only one Lord Creator, which is Nam, and that Nam is the everlasting, eternal Truth also or Sat, thus Guru Jee called it Satnam. So to finalize, if we follow Guru Jee´s instructions faithfullyvwithoung looking here or there, then only can we say, Sikhee is religion for us, otherwise, it is one more among so many other dharams. It is for us to understand the Bani what Guru Sahiban want to convey us through it, then also, to choose and be a true Gursikh, nobody can force anybody in anything. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  9. Sangat Jee, in the beautiful video above,Guru Jee reveals us the secrets of spirituality, we all are lost souls, but if we pay attention to the words of Guru Jee in it, and sip each Sat Bachan as a person dying of thirst, we shall definetely by His kirpa find our way to Wahiguru Akal Purukh. He himself, through Satguru Nanak, is showing us the way to go back to Him, no need for big debates, discussions, nor memorizing anything, but as Guru Jee says, practicing the Truth, we get purity, which is nothing else than meditating on Him only. Stay blessed, Sat Sree Akal.

  13. Dying to the Shabad Tulsee Das was a Saint. When he was young he was devoted to reaching God and he struggled slowly on this path. When he got married he was head over heels in love with his beautiful wife, she became the sole reason for his living, everything he did was to please her. One day he surprised her with a gift - she was overwhelmed by his love and said, 'If you were devoted to God half as much as you are to me, I'm sure you would have reached God by now.' The words struck Tulsee Das to the core and his earlier life of devotion came flooding back to his mind, from that day on God became his sole focus once again. Many years later when Tulsee Das was old and wise and respected by all in the village as a saint, a Brahmin priest came to him. He said to Tulsee Das, 'All my life I've preached and read the scriptures, but I haven't met my Beloved Ram. Tell me what I should do?'. Tulsee Das said, 'It's very simple, all you have to do is climb that tall tree and jump off the branch with full faith that Ram will catch you.' The Brahmin was inspired and climbed the tree, he sat on the branch and looked down at the hard ground below. No matter how hard he tried he couldn't make the leap. Many hours passed and the Village HeadMan (SarPanch) walked by with a bag of money. Noticing the Brahmin he enquired as to what he was doing. The Brahmin explained that Tulsee Das had said that by jumping off the tree Ram would catch him. The SarPanch who wasn't a religious man quickly said, 'O Brahmin, if you like you may have this bag of money, but give me Tulsee Das's blessing in exchange.' The Brahmin didn't take too long to think about the offer and was soon off on his way with the bag of money. The SarPanch climbed the tree went across the branch and with full faith in Ram he jumped off. Ram caught him like a baby in its mother's arms. Sounds too unbelievable to be true? But look for the deeper meaning, there's a very, very important spiritual point to this story. I am like the Brahmin, I do my nitnem prayers and preach to people. I do Waheguru Waheguru meditation and I follow the bits of the Guru's Shabad that I like and ignore the bits that are difficult to apply. I follow half of the Hukam, God's Order, and my life trickles away like this then I wonder why I haven't met Waheguru ji. When my brother comes to me with a great business opportunity my focus becomes how I can make lots and lots of money and in the background I rush my nitnem and Waheguru Waheguru meditation. My life trickles away like this and I wonder why I haven't met Waheguru ji. But one day with Guru Ji's great kirpa, I hear the story of Tulsee Das. Now I realise I am like the Brahmin, I have lots of things to live for and I am scared of dying. Guru Nanak Ji says 'I have no anxiety about dying, and no hope of living.' (p20). Why is Guru Nanak Ji so brave? Because he has full faith that Waheguru ji is looking after him 'SIREE RAAG, FIRST MEHL: I have no anxiety about dying, and no hope of living. You are the Cherisher of all beings; You keep the account of our breaths and morsels of food. You abide within the Gurmukh. As it pleases You, You decide our allotment. || 1 ||' (p20). So in my ardas, 'Guru Granth Sahib Jee you have given your blessing like Tulsee Das gave to the Brahmin. Give me full faith in your Gurbanee Words like the SarPanch had full faith in what Tulsee Das said. Baba Ji may I follow your words 100% and if it kills me then I have faith Waheguru ji You yourself will catch me.' And dear Khalsa Ji, when you die while alive and are caught by Waheguru ji then you will be called Jeevan Mukhat. While still alive you have obtained liberation. By dying to the Shabad one finds the True Life held in the arms of Waheguru ji. with thanks to the AKJ website

  15. The need of moral charcter for being spiritually strong If we wish to avoid falling under the influence of delusion we must guard our mind and prevent it from wandering in agyanta, mainly due to mother ahankar. We cannot practice moral discipline purely if we have an unguarded mind. If we can learn how to protect our mind from delusion and yoke it to the practice of virtue, or subh karam and being selfless, with utmost humility then our moral discipline will grow in strength and eventually be perfected. If we neglect to guard our mind, however, many faults will arise, and we shall get farther away and away from the Ultimate Truth
  16. Sorry bro, I do not know. Got it from a friend of mine, liked it, and thought of sharing with the sangat here.
