Kaljug Posted March 14, 2010 Report Share Posted March 14, 2010 Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! We all know that Sikhi respects the attainments of Bhagats from other religious traditions in India, and, I believe, teaches that these Bhagats attained the supreme goal. But what is the Sikh perspective on the goals and attainments of non-Deistic religions (i.e., religions which do not necessarily use prema bhakti as their method of realisation)? For example, Philosophical Daoism teaches a return to the Dao (where the Dao is usually described much the same way as Nirguna Brahman without attempting to anthropomorphise the Dao) and Buddhism urges an aspirant to attain Nirvana without attaching significance to a God-like entity or even nessarily believing in the existence of the atman. Would a Daoist aiming for the Dao, a Buddhist meditating to obtain Nirvana, and a Sikh doing bhakti to merge with Waheguru achieve the same end result?
