  1. Between the Guru and people, for a sikh it is undoubtedly obvious to choose the Guru. Follow the people by listening to their agyanta, one is sure to go astray in the endless wheel of 84. Follow the gyan of the Guru, and one is bound to return our true Home.
  2. Do Hindu Gods Exist? Hindu gods are not actually gods of hindus alone, but rather they are energies, working out their roles in the immense and huge creation. Just as we do not get any hindu sun, or a muslim moon, or christian stars, and so on .... It is all deep ignorance (maya) in the end at all levels. It is only when we go within ourselves by meditation, we can clearly see where each jeev atma stands and what is their actual condition. Right from the beginning, there is only One Truth (IK OANKAR), Ooch, A-paar, Be-ant, SAT-NAM, and in the end when He wants to end the khel, it will still remain one, Sat-Nam. Rest is all of His creation. Now, how can anybody ever cross all the khands and brahmands at different planes and reach that One supreme and changeless Truth? Well, Gurbani can not be more clear and benevolent for us, when it says: Eko Naam hukum hae Nanak, Satgur dheea bujhae jeeo. The Bani says: O Nanak, the only commandment to be followed, is to hold on one Nam alone, as instructed by the True Guru. The creation is characterized by varieties, diversities, in countless forms, sizes, colors, shapes, but, He Waheguru Akal Purukh is One, and it is to Him whom we have to pay attention and shower all our love and devotion at His Lotus Feet, so that we may not get lost in the wheel of 84, and in the end merge and become one with Him. Different divinties, avatrs, celestial beings, gods, devtays, etc, are all there as obstacles placed by Maya, so that we may grow and become strong by overcoming them, and by wanting the only ONE mercilfull and beloved Waheguru Akal Purukh.
  3. The best way to know how much anybody is near the Truth, is as simple as seeing how much they stress in applying the teachings of Gurbani into our daily lives. Each person may or may not have different points of views and differ from others, whosoever it maybe, because when it comes to Gurbani which is all that matters in the end for it is that what will be for our spiritual benefit only, then that is what we should take it. No real mahapurukh comes to contradict Gurmat, rather to make us aware of that supreme Truth (SATNAM) which lies within all living beings as our sole source and support for our liberation forever from the mayavee creation by merging in that everlasting and changeless Truth for all past, present, and future times. Time changes, conditions change, places change, all the creation changes, but, that One supreme Truth, Satnam, is changless, and is always the way for the salvation of the jeev atma-soul. He alone who awakens our awareness, and helps us realize that changless Truth within ourselves can be called as a mahapurukh.
  4. Pen Jee if one plays with fire, one should be consciouss that one can get burnt. So both of you knew, that living in relationship does have the chances of getting pregnant. And if you were confident and strong then, then be the same now and face whatever you have to, with dignity. You may evade somehow the so called society, but have you ever thought of what face will you take when yamdoots or Dharam Rai ask you for killing a life? And there you will be all alone, nobody will stand beside you. Have you ever thought of that? You say you are a sikh woman, then, did you forget Waheguru is all omnipresent and was aware of this your relationship? If no shame then, what shame now? See, what is done is done, do not get things worse by killing a life. Marry ths man now, and let the people talk as much as they want, nothing lasts forever, it is your life, to the hell with the so called society. What matters is your morality and self respect. Believe it, having a child in one´s arms, is such a blessing, a most loving act, that no other relationship can be ever compared to it. So start making plans to have this baby by all means, and be grateful to Him for this blessing, of having a child. Nothing happens just like that, the child has to come as it is so destined at a particular time, so please it is a benti, do not do anything which will make you incurr in heavy karma, and for which you alone will have to pay. Aapay beejeh aapay khaae. Lastly, be bold, be strong and above all thankful to Him, there is no such thing compared in having a child. It is one of the biggest blessings, which one can have. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.
  5. Hello brother, as long as we are in the mayavee planes, these types of phases of ups and downs, and turbulences will be happening time after time. But as passengers / disciples of the pilot Guru Jee, we should be thankful that we are sitting in the airplane of our life commanded by Him, so we should tell our minds to keep quite and stop hopping and trying to trouble us, for in no way we are going to get affected with its tricks and dramas, so it should sit down and be in peace.... that would the better for it and our surtee. We should try to make the mind understand that, we do His bhakti to just please Him, without any conditions nor expectations, so no matter if we see apparent progress or not, for progress in sikhee is undoubted, sometimes we may perceive it or not, but definetely progress is there. So brother do not loose heart, stick faithfully to your spiritual practices, His daya meher, His kirpa, will definetely take you much farther and to higher heights, just do not get dismotivated, for you should fix in mind that He never leaves His lovers, bhagats.... He is much aware of whatever we are doing or going through. Just as the sun is always up there, it is only that sometimes, that the dark karmic clouds come into our way so we do not see the sun, but that does not mean the sun has not arised or gone somewhere, when the clouds move away in due time we will have the sunshine again. Stay blessed. SSA.
  6. First of all from our side it is almost impossible to recognize a true saint. Have a look at our Guru Sahiban, where even some of their family members did not recognize them as such, or even Bhagats of highest order like Kabir Sahib, Christ, where people torture them whether verbally or physically. It is usually whomsoever they want to get hold of their hand, can recognize and accept them. in that respect the Bani says that those people are wadbhagee. Bhoolay marg jinay bataaya aisa Gur wadbhagee paaya. Then too with much difficulties, doubts will assail them until they go within with abhyaas and see the real form of that saint within themselves. Another quality of them is that they will only sing praises of the only permanent and eternal Truth, Waheguru, and inspire us to do only that bhakti as per Gurbani, which will reunite us with Him. But sadly, kalyug has held such a strong grip on the people, that inspite of being told the truth in simple and direct manner , people will strongly criticize them, for trying to not follow the criteria of an established religion as per their views in terms of rituals and dogmas, that too, when the Bani says that the chanting of His name is the highest among all religions. They are the embodiment of humility, peace and forgiveness, they will even lower themselves, in order to avoid any quarrels and fights. Our Guru Sahiban are the real picture of what a true Saint ought to be.
  7. You should read the teachings right from the highest and perfect Teacher, in SGGS. Do not rush, take your time to understand and digest the teachings which are true spiritual gems from the Bani. Monitors or advanced students are fine, but having direct and first hand contact with the teacher is the best, for in the end, it is with the teacher whom we have to account for our education learned and applied at the end of our present grade(human life). Then we can not give excuses, that I only did what I saw others do, or was told by them to do according to their understanding. As for Nam, do not rush as said above, see for yourself what is Nam, what is Guru Sahiban, what is a Gurmukh, a Sant Jan, and see the message which they wanto convey us from their personal intercation and communion with Supreme Power, or level of Highest Consciousness. To start with, I will suggest you you to start with Jap Ji Sahib, Anand Sahib, Asa Ki war, though all the Gurbani by itself is a spiritual wealth beyond measure. Then if here or there you have any questions, you may ask the sangat here, all will be much glad to help you, but, as said, go through the Bani which is true bliss, and a path leading to the Highest, if only applied as indicated by Guru Jee in it. If by His grace you are constant in your approach towards the Bani, you will discover higher truths hidden in it time after time as one gets mentally purer, that is the magic of the Bani. Guru Jee is the only link between us jeev atmas and Him, He is the One to ferry us across, rest of the people are all passengers waiting to fulfill their journey as per their destiny karam. So in Sikhee, Guru Jee is the most important being, had it not been for Him, we could never ever have come to know anything about Waheguru Akal Purukh. To the extent that the Bani says: Guru meree pooja The Guru is the objective of my devotion (for loving Him, we merge in Him, the formless One) Guru Gobind The Guru is the Lord sustainer Gobind Guru mera Parbrham Guru Bhagwant My Guru is the trascendental Lord (formless and unfathomable= Shabad or Nam), beyond the realms of Brahm or Maya. Best of luck Bro and stay blessed.
  8. Welcome Manav Jee, we must bear in our mind that, all souls are just as equal same rays from the One Light/Sun. According to where those rays fall upon(bodies), we say someone is a sikh, a hindu, a muslim or a christian. But when we go within, we all have that same refulgence, light of His Jot. Gurbani says: Sabh meh Jot, Jot hae soee. His Light permates in all as souls, and He Himself is the source of Supreme light. So, it does not matter if one is a sikh, a hindu or be it anyone, yet if one concentrates and goes within by His grace, we will all hear the same sounds if only we are that same satges or levels of consciousness, and that Shabad or Anahad Bani resounds in everyone one of us, irrespective of our color, creed, gender or caste. Sree Guru Amar Das says: Nam jiskay man vaseeya, vaajeh Shabad ganere. Means, whosoever concentrates on Nam will hear the sound of that Shabad or Nam within himself/herself. In His eyes, we are all His souls. It is we blind fools who fight and quarrel and kill or abuse someone in the name of religion, that too, when we have not seen that Jot for ourselves, we forget that according to khel and our karmas we are born in a particular place, body, and dharam, ad according to His kanoon of karmas no one can change anyone, so why not respect all as they are? Going back to your query, it is by great good luck that in Sikhee under the guidance of the True spiritual Teachers, Guru Sahiban, we are taught how to overcome all our limitations and by devoting ourselves to their higher and pure teachings we manifest the Sound or Voice of the ultimate Truth or call it creator and see His Jot within us. That is supreme mahima of Guru Jee, who making us shatter our deep rooted ignorance and thus throughly cleaning us all our dirt of karmas, sanskaras, from countless lives, makes us pur and fit to reunite ourselves and become one with that Ultimate Truth which some call God, and we in sikhee call that creative power Wahehuru Akal Purukh, who is formless and beyond any imagination, not even gods or any other entities can know anything about Him, except His lovers and Guru Sahiban. That is what Gurbani is for, to overcome all our limitations, all our pettiness, all our complexes, of which we are so much proud prisoners.
  9. When one cries while listening Gurbani, it is a sign of His grace and also it means that the Amrit of Gurbani has pierced the hardened stone of our mind and filled us with true love for Him. And when truly loves someone, then only does one feel cry and feel the agony of being away from the beloved. I have heard mahapurukhs say that, there is no such perfect cleanser for our soul/mind as crying for our beloved Waheguru. Not even yeras of bandagee is compared to a moment of vichoraa from our Beloved. Our cries shake Him even, who then comes running to us and embrace us, though we may not see Him with our eyes. But it is a fact, that, even our cries for Him, is more a pull from His side, than any merits of ours. He is ready to give us His wealth of love and mercy, it is only that we have to be pure in word, in deed and in mind, in order to be receptive to that His "daat".
  10. AMA JEE, will try my best, but first of all I would like to tell you, that, this relation of wife - husband mentioned in this Shabad below is not of worldly wife and husband, but that spiritual one of love where the soul is like a wife and Waheguru Akal Purukh is husband, as a loving protector. ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ āsā mahalā 5 . ਆਸਾ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ ਨਿਜ ਭਗਤੀ ਸੀਲਵੰਤੀ ਨਾਰਿ ॥ nij bhagatī sīlavantī nār . * The bride shows such special devotion, and has such an agreeable disposition ਆਪਣੀ (ਆਤਮਾ ਦੇ ਕੰਮ ਆਉਣ ਵਾਲੀ ਬ੍ਰਿਤੀ) ਭਗਤੀ (ਮਾਨੋ ਇਕ) ਸ਼ੁਭ ਗੁਣਾਂ ਵਾਲੀ ਇਸਤਰੀ (ਸਮਾਨ ਹੈ ਰੂਪਿ ਅਨੂਪ ਪੂਰੀ ਆਚਾਰਿ ॥ rūp anūp pūrī āchār . *Her beauty is incomparable, and her character is perfect.

(ਪਰ) ਗੁਰੂ ਦੁਆਰਾ ਕਿਸੇ ਵਿਰਲੇ ਜੀਵ ਨੇ (ਅਜਿਹੀ ਇਸਤਰੀ) ਪ੍ਰਾਪਤ ਕੀਤੀ ਹੈ।੧। ਸੁਕਰਣੀ ਕਾਮਣਿ ਗੁਰ ਮਿਲਿ ਹਮ ਪਾਈ ॥ sukaranī kāman gur mil ham pāī . *As the soul-bride of pure actions, I have met with the Guru.

As said earler, when such a blessed soul sheds away all the earth binding chains on her such as of karmas, and paaps, she regains her original state of spotless purity, and is thus prepared to merge and become one with that only True Akal Purukh. ਜੋ ਯੱਗ ਵਿਚ ਵਿਆਹ ਦੇ ਅਵਸਰ ਉਤੇ ਹਰੇਕ ਰਸਮ-ਰੀਤੀ ਸਮੇਂ ਸੋਹਣੀ ਲਗਦੀ ਹੈ।੧।ਰਹਾਉ। ਜਿਚਰੁ ਵਸੀ ਪਿਤਾ ਕੈ ਸਾਥਿ ॥ jichar vasī pitā kai sāth . *As long as she lived with her father.

  11. The 3 worlds/lokas or planes are as following: the physical or gross one, the astral, and the causal. All of these in time are subject to decay and dissolution, in Parlay or Mahaparlay Above these 3, is Parbrham, the pure spiritual realm which has it highest peak in Sach Khand, the ultimate, changeless, eternal and infinite, the permanent abode of Waheguru Akal Purukh, where only He exists, and whosoever reaches there by His grace, also becomes one with Him.
  12. Though this thread is quite old, yet I believe is much valid even today, for the law of karma does not change just like that, it keeps functioning as long as He wants to keep this creation in motion. Just as there is no tree/ fruit without seed, or , there can be no action without reaction. So too, our lives can not exist without the law of karma, each one gets exactly what one has sown. You sow apples, you will reap apples. if you sow chillies, you will not get mangoes, you will definetely reap chillies, and moreover, you yourself will have to eat them, no matter how much one may shout or cry. The law of karma is just and has to exist, otherwise, the weak humans and maybe other beings, for all of their wrong doings, usually do blame Him for being partial, that too when the truth is, He is all forgiveness and full of mercy. We are sent here (this creation)to become better beings and mature spiritualwise, and recognize His true value by being away from Him, yet many are such donkeys, that they keep on being proud of their deep rooted ignorance when true spirituality or even the pure Gurbani is presented before them. We are born in koor, and we deeply love koor,so naturally we are prisoners in the creation of koor. Unless, we eat and digest TRUTH, then only, we do regain our true original healthy nature of purity, and only then do we become fit to merge and become one with that INFINITE, ETERNAL, EVERLASTING, CHANGELESS TRUTH, our Origin. The dirt accumulated on our heads since countless births is just beyond our petty imagination, there is no such soap which we can use and wash ourselves totally, no matter even if we use the soap 24/7 again in countless births/janams. The remedy for that our such huge amount of dirt, is only washable if He pours the water of His kirpa on us. The secret of our cleanliness is to please Him, just as a child pleases his/her parents, in order to be receptive to His apaar grace, which in the end is the "cleanser" of all our paaps/sins. Then too, we proud ignorants, we think we have achieved His realization. We have to bear in mind, we are all spiritually blind, and unless "He" who has eyes and gets hold of our tiny hand to pull us out, we can never ever get out from the mayavee creation. For that very reason, we should always have to be humble (saadkee) from the very bottom of our hearts, for in being humble, we are in disposition to become virtuous and do His devotion with firm unwareing faith, which is also more of His bakshish. Karmas, have reactions in engaging us in more unavoidable karmas, but, His true devotion is karmaless, and is the only water to wash away all of our karmas, there is no other way. He is Ooch, He is apaar, He is beant, so is His devotion/seva, if done faithfully and nishkam, it can wipe away all our accumulated dirt of karmas/paap/sins.
  13. Hello Veer Jee, regarding your question above, found the following information on the net: THE COMING OF NIKALANK AVATAR: A MESSIANIC THEME IN SOME SECTARIAN TRADITIONS OF NORTH-WESTERN INDIA Journal of Indian Philosophy 25: 401-426, 1997. (c) 1997 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. Dominique-Sila Khan In the literary tradition associated with a few "obscure" religious movements of Rajasthan and Gujarat[1] one finds a number of prophetic songs the central motifs of which are of an eschatological and messianic nature. They describe the end of the world or rather, according to Hindu beliefs, the cataclysms and disasters preceding the dissolution (pralaya) of the universe at the end of the fourth cosmic Age (Kali yuga) before a new Era begins.[2] The advent of a saviour and restorer of justice in the form of Vishnu's tenth incarnation is also predicted, although, unlike the Epic and Puranic Kalki, he is referred to as Nikalank Avatar. Hope it satisfies your query somehow. Anyhow, if you or anyone wants to read more about it, following is the link : http://www.ismaili.net/Source/nikaintro.html.
