The word Baptism is derived from Greek word Baptisto meaning ,bathing in water or for a more clear understanding ‘ full immersion in water to wash away one,s sins, It’s not exclusive to Christianity, but was revealed to the Sikh gurus to initiate a person into Sikh sangat,. The same concept or religious practice was found among the Hindus, Over time the priestly class ( the Brahmins ) , due to their Apostasied or fallen state, it’s true mode and authority was lost. With the advent or dispensation of Sikhi , many precious truths were restored. The Sikh gurus introduced the true Baptism or Ishaan . There’s ample evidence of true Baptism is found within ‘Guru Granth Sahib ji’, the holy scriptures written by the gurus.
With the Fall of true Sikhi, with Guru Govind ji,s departure , true meaning & practice is lost again. And now you can see that it’s not the same as it was revealed to guru Sahiban.
The custodians of GuruGranth Sahib Ji are drifting further and further away from the original truth . They have created so many difficulties for themselves out of which they are unable to come out. Only Vaheguru can help them with His infinite wisdom and kindness .
