  1. i was under the impression that Baikunt was the Heavenly Abode of Indra. Am I mistaken?
  2. jai ho babay-ian di ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJK-3DBE90Y...feature=related
  3. Can't one argue that it is because people have used their own matt and fallen from the sampradie that this has happened?
  4. Guru Gobind Singh Ji does talk about the Geeta and the Upanishads in his Sri Guru Sarbloh Granth (Sri Mangalacharan Ji) ਰਾਜ ਪਲਾਸੀ ਬਖਸ਼ਸ਼ ਹਜੂਰ ਕਬਿੳੁਬਾਚੁ॥ ਅੈਸੇ ਗੁਣ ਹਰਿ ਖਾਲਸਹਿ ਬਖਸ਼ੈ, ਭਗਤਿ, ਗਯਾਨੀ, ਰਾਜਜੋਗੇਸ੍ਵਰ ॥ God has blessed the Khalsa with virtues such as those of bhagats, gianis, raj yogis ਛਤ੍ਰਿਯ ਬ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਅਨਨਯੁਪਾਸਕ, ਤਯਾਗੀ ਹਠੀ ਸੂਰ ਭਵਨੇਸ੍ਵਰ ॥ Kshatriyas, those who perform religious rites for others, worshippers of one God, those who live apart from others, ascetics, warriors, masters who bestride the world ਗ੍ਰਾਹੀ ਸੁਭ ਤਯਾਗਿ ਬਿਵਰਜਿਤਿ ਸ਼੍ਰਤਯਾਦਯੰ ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਮੁਖ ਪਰਮੇਸ੍ਵਰ ॥ ਗੀਤਾ ੳੁਪਨਿਸਦਿਨ ਮਹਾ ਵਾਰਯ, ਰਹਿਨੀ ਭਗਤਿ ਗਯਾਨਿ ਬ੍ਰਿਤੇਸ਼੍ਵਰ ॥੫॥ Hearing what God tells them in the scriptures, in the noble words of the (Bhagavad) Gita and the Upanishads, they follow the auspicious, avoiding what is evil and live as devout and knowledgeable people. ਅਸੁ ਖਾਲਸਹਿ ਖਾਲਸ ਪਦ ਪ੍ਰਾਪਤਿ, ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰਿ ਸੁ ਸ੍ਵਰੂਪ ਮਹਾਨੰ ॥ਰਹਾੳੁ॥ The Khalsa attained purity, as great as the One (nirankaar) who is above every stain ਗੁਰੁ ੳੁਪਦੇਸ ਸਿਖਨ ਪ੍ਰਤਿ ਭਾਸਨਿ, ਮੁੱਦ੍ਰਿਤ ਕੱਛ ਕੇਸ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਨੰ ॥ To the Sikhs this teaching of the Guru is given, that these three must be your signs: kachh, kesh, kirpan (chapter 5, adiyaay punjvah of sri sarbloh guru granth sahib) I found that while reading through Sri Sarbloh Granth, it does talk about similar things that the Geeta talks about. There are whole sections that deal with the difference between Sargun and Nirgun worship. I believe one line is that it says Nirgun worship is sab utaam (above all). I found that interesting because in the Gita it says that sargun worship is probably best (if im not mistaken).
  5. found something very interesting in dasam about this In Brahmaavatars (avatars of brahma), which comes after Chaubis Avatar (24avatars of vishnu), the first avatar of brahma is Balmiki. Let me type up the translation for you lot. ------------------------------ After assuming the incarnation, Brahma, with the fullness of his heart and in a special way, presented his thoughts; He remembered the Lord and composed the songs and prepared the epic skillfully arranging the selected words.1. For the divine thoughts, he created the word ‘Brahm’ and by remembering the Lord and with His grace, he narrated whatever he wanted; He, unhestitatinly, composed in this way the fine epic Ramayana, which none else will be able to do.2. All the poets are dumb before him, how will they compose poetry? He composed this Granth by the Grace of the Lord; The erudite scholars of language and literature read it with pleasure; and while comparing with their own works, they get angry in their minds.3. The story of his immaculate poem which is really wonderful accomplished and powerful; this story is even re-composed today. His poem is said to be extremely pure and each of its episodes is spotless, sanctified and marvelous.4. According to the instructions given in Ramayana, we should ever be in the service of the Lord; we should get up early in the morning and remember His Name; Through the Glory of His Name, many enemies are killed and the charities of innumerable types are bestowed; that Lord, also keeping His name on our heads, protects the ignorant people like us.5. Even after the fighting of many mighty warriors, the saints remain unharmed and before the white arrows of His Grace and tranquility, the forces of agony and affliction fly away; That Lord, with His Grace, will save me and I shall never pass through any condition of suffering and hardship.6. End of the first incarnation of Valmiki. -------------------------------- this is on ang 613-614 of sri dasamgranth sahib i found this extremely interesting, thought i would share it with the internet sangat

  18. I did not say that to discredit the Ramayana, you can get a lot of good out of it. I'm not sure if I believe that what is said is exactly what happened, but really its irrelevant when you think about it.
  19. At the start of the ramanya it states that valmiki wrote it in satyug yeh. Valmiki/Balmiki (same thing, in Northen India you would tend to see the word Balmiki used, as in Ramavatar) appears at various times, during the Ramayana not only when he takes care of Luva and Kush. He comments on various events as well, ie. when he applauds Ravanas response to Kaal. I do not believe that it is talking about another person named Valmiki, it is the same Rishi who wrote the Ramayana. Now this could be because he transcends 'time' and can appear whereever he wants, or simply that he wanted to include himself in the story. I would like to see if there are deeper interpretations to why this happened from the tradition. Tsingh would you be able to comment? Many Hindus believe very strongly that the Ramayana actually happened some don't. The Valmiki point is not the only point where it is contested, I can think of various events that would seem very 'fairytale'ish... - monkey and bear army fighting for Rama - Hanuman lifting up a mountain from the Himalyas and bringing it to SriLanka etc...
