The concept of 'Jeevan-Mukt' in other religions?

Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa!

Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Maharaj Ji tells us that it is possible to become jeevan-mukt and I personally know a few Gurmukhs who I believe reached this stage. Does this get mentioned in any other religion?

Also, some religions like Islam etc, believe in a single judgement day for everyone (except shaheeds). What do they believe happens to the Atma between time of death and this judgement day which is yet to come?

most of all other religions beleive in jeevan mukhti-eg- hinduism have concept of turiya avastha, islam have concept of najhahat and buddhism have concept of nirvana. These are same avastha but have different names.

they belive in something called Barzakh, "Punishment in the grave" which is a temporary heaven or hell that the soul recieves in the grave... the soul will stay in the grave untill it is resurected at the day of jugement

Does that mean that unless Singho or SHAHJI blow themselves at some American checkpoint in Iraq they will be waiting in their graves until judgement day? Sounds a bit like waiting for Godot!

Sounds similar to purgatory.

'I think' according to mainstream Islam, on judgment day, Muslims and people of the kateb, who did not truely believe in their Prophets, will go to to Jahannam, but will eventually be forgiven.

Non Muslims (and non-Katebi) will be dammed for eternity.

Please lets not get off-topic from this thread, and refrain from personal attacks.
