Which Granth/Religion Is Master Key


Recommended Posts

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh

Recently on SikhAwareness there is lot of fuss about some people rejecting Vedas and some overly accepting Vedas etc. I'll try to throw my 2 cents here as follows:

What is a Religion?

- Under whose guidance and discipline we can meet GOD.

What is a Granth?

- Which helps us to be in discipline and learn about GOD.

Which Granth is better?

- All are equal. Neither one Granth is derived from other nor any Granth is different/seperate. They all speak the same language (GOD's language), but its our mind that cannot grasp them fully.


We are in Kaliyug which means that Satyug, Traytayug, Dwaaparyug have already passed. I think that almost everyone agree that Sikhism does NOT have monopoly over GOD. In previous years, people used to get Mukti/Salvation through other means. i.e in each yug, there was different identified/known easy way/techinque to get Mukti as per the needs at that time: e.g In Satyug, it was "Truth"; In Traytayug it was "Charitable Feasts", In Dwaaparyug it was "Worship". But in Kaliyug, it is "Naam" only. And Guru Granth Sahib teaches us: Why and How to jap Naam.

ਸਤਜੁਗਿ ਸਤੁ ਤੇਤਾ ਜਗੀ ਦੁਆਪਰਿ ਪੂਜਾਚਾਰ ॥

ਤੀਨੌ ਜੁਗ ਤੀਨੌ ਦਿੜੇ ਕਲਿ ਕੇਵਲ ਨਾਮ ਅਧਾਰ ॥੧॥


Also, in each yug, human used to have different average age: In Satyug it used to be 1,00000 years; In Trayatar it used to be 10,000 years; In Dwaapar it used to be 1000 years; but in Kaliyug it is 100.


We can meet GOD ONLY through our physical body. I mean that physical body is required to order to do Path, Puja, Naam etc. But without physical body we cannot complete our journey to GOD.

From the above 3 points, it is clear that our 1st requirement to meet GOD is changing with each yug. We (human/physical body) used to be very strong in previous yugs; and there was less pollution, more pure foods etc. But with the passage of time/Kal, our body became weak. But important point is that in each yug, the physical body has only one work - to reach GOD. So, it implies that techniques applied in one yug cannot be easy applied today because in cirumstances but Goal is still the same. Therefore in each yug, GOD HIMSELF shows the way to reach HIM through different means. In Kaliyug HE chooses Naam Marg which is easy as compared to previous yug's techniques (like Tap, Pryanama, Hathya Yoga etc.). Obviously, in order to understand Naam, we mortals also need a guiding GURU which is Guru Granth Sahib Ji; but it does NOT imply that all other Granths, Veda in previous yug are inacurate or false.

So, the same GOD who provided the knowledge to write Veda; provides Eternal Guru Granth Sahib Ji.


- The people who say that Vedas are false: This is wrong.

- The people who say that Guru Granth Sahib is derived from Veda: This is also wrong because Veda were also derived from some knowledge.

Bottom line is: If there is a easy way to do a thing, you will and have to opt it as compared to hard thing. e.g If you do have 2 options to travel 1000 miles: One to travel by cycle, and other to travel by car; obviously you will and should choose car. But it does NOT mean that cycle cannot travel 1000 miles. It is our physical body's limitation that we will NOT be able to travel 1000 miles in very short time. But still in both cases, both cycle and car does satisfy the basic requirement for which they are made: that is to Travel.

Guru is required in order to do Naam simran; and as per Suleman, Sikhs do have easy access to Guru as compared to Hindus and Muslims and therefore it is easier to get Mukti in Sikhism but Sikhism does NOT have any monopoly over Mukti/GOD. Any person with or without religion can get Mukti provided he has a Guru. Moreover, there is NO need for non-sikhs to convert to Sikhs, be what GOD made you. We do NOT know if our religion was same as in the previous birth. It is possible that we have a different religion in every previous birth; it is possible that in previous birth we were Sikhs, and now we are Hindus and vice-versa. Its the game of Karams.
