Raja Janak

Raja Janak is mentioned as a king in GGSJ, and was supposedly very great, and found Saachkhand I believe. Is it true that something like he was asked if he had any wishes, and he said, to release all those in hell, and that according to all the Paath he did, this outweighed the weight of those in hell. Can anyone add anything more to this?

I just heard raja janak sakhi again through rara sahib divans.

Raja janak was an rare bhramgyani who made whole village of bhramgyanis.

He asked dharamraj to free those souls who have done done bad deeds from hell. Dharamraj replied, there is nothing i can do and said i have to give them punishments according to their deeds ..thats a hakum of akaal.

Then raja janak ji did meditation for an second with true heart to vaheguroo. All the people who were goin to hell went to swaaryag instead.

Mortal of this sakhi is to meditation with full concentration & meditation with clean heart of akaal can be 1000000 times more fruitful than using temporary ways ie-pryanayam, goin in jungles ..searchin for god.

Note: Raja Janak was an atheist before. But after self-realization he became one with akaaal.

Raja Janaka was the king Mithila and the father of Sita, the wife of Rama, the hero of the Ramayana.

Raja Janaka is a very important figure because he shows how you can conciliate married life and the pleasures they imply and spirituality. In Indian art he is either represented meditating with his japamala or in erotic games with his wife or wives.

In the Valmiki Ramayana he is described in the Sundara and Bala Khandas.

see Goldmann.199?. The Valmiki Ramayana, Berkeley, University of California Press

Bhai Gurdaas ji compositions page 150 - Gobind Singh Manusukhani

Bhagat vada Raja Janak Hai, Gurmukh maya vich udaasi.

Dev Lok no chalyaa, gunn gundarb sabhaa sukhvaasi.

Jampur gaiyaa pukaar sunn, vil - laavan jeea narak nivaasi.

Dharm Rai no akhion, sabhna di kar bund khalaasi.

karay benti Dharmrai, hau sewak Thaakur abnaasi.

Gahnay dhariunn ek Naau, paappaa naal karai nirjaasi.

Paasang paap na pujnee, Gurmukh Nau atul na tulaasi.

Narkahu chhutay jea jant, katee galah silak jam faasi.

Mukt jugat Naavaidi daasi.

Raja Janak was a great king as well as a saint, who remained unaffacted by worldly temptations. He proceeded to heaven in the company of singing angels and holy men.

Hearing cries coming from hell , he went there and saw people in great torment.

He said to Dharm Raj - the presiding angel of hell " release these unfortunate people".

Dharm Raj replied " i am only a servent of God, my master".

Then janak put the weight of the holy name ( use of God's holy name can overcome mountains of sin) on one side of a pair of spiritual scales; on the other side he placedc the burden of sins of the hell stricken.

Behold! The total weight of the sins was not even a quarter of the immeasurable weight of the Holy Name.

The sinners fetters were broken and they were released.

Salvation and means of liberation are within the powers of saintly persons.

It's no surprise, all of the Jesus stories are copies of older mythologies, like Osiris, Dionysus etc.

"Christianity also borrowed elements of Jesus' mythology: the virgin birth, the miracles (including turning water into wine, walking on water, and especially healing the sick) were all common elements of pre-Christian Pagan religions. Mithras had 'em. So did Dionysus, Attis, Osiris, and Orpheus. And more. And they had them centuries before Christianity was a twinkle in Saint Paul's eye."
