Guru Gobind Singh on Kalyug and vedas

Recommended Posts

Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj speaks

"Idol worship, ritual, wearing the dhoti, and leaving the head bare are duties that were required in previous yugas(not during the present).

During the Kalyuga, the proper duty to observe is that which binds diciple to Guru. Each Yuga has its own Veda. For the Kalyuga it is the Atharva Veda. According to the Atharva Veda he who lives in the kalyuga and obeys the word of the Guru shall find rich fullfilmen, whereas he who does not obey it will sink in the ocean of existence."

-Sakhi Rehit Ki by Bhai Nand Lal (Translated by Mcleod)

Can someone shed more light on this?

Amardeep, I think it's pretty self explanotary.

The crux of Bhai Nand Lal's quote is that one should submit to their Guru in Kaljug - as the Guru is the boat of emancipation, without whom, all will drown in the darkness...

The reference to the Atharva Veda is fine, as Bhai Sahib quotes the truth from it. It simply shows Bhai Sahibs extensive knowledge, and maybe the writing was intended for the "Hindu" majority - and appropriate references used as such.

Thank you very much shaheediyan ji.

Is there anyone here on this forum, that knows the hymns in the Veda that Bhai Nand Lal ji is reffering to when he says that they mention submission to the Guru of Kalyug.. if so, please give refferences.

I may be wrong, but I think it's the section entitled "Glorification of the sun/primevel principle - as a Brahman disciple, which falls under the cosmogonic and theosophic hyms.

It talks of the bilateral devotion of a teacher and student.

ooh shaheediyan veer jiii.

The fourth chapter of the Bhagavad Gita also talks about honouring and following your Guru, but i have never come across a reference to the mentioning of a Guru in the vedas.

do hindues also belive that each veda is ascribed to a particular yuga?
