Sikh preachers should talk about Hell.

I would like to hear your guys thoughts. In my opinion, this (hell is just a mind state) is a very dangerous belief to have, and it's very worrisome. 

It is very true what you say, but I would also add, that hardly anyone either talks about Waheguru, Nam, Shabad, and Sach Khand.

Gurbani clearly and repeatedly tells us what to do in order to please Him, thus get His kirpa and cross the Mahabhavsagar. Then, who is to be blamed? 

Kalyug is in full force, and if we do not profit ourselves from the Light of Truth as described in the Bani, we are likely to get derailed.

It is by taking the Medicine that one gets "cured", not by reading, or repeat it memorizedly, nor looking at the prescription; and no matter even if one does so 24/7.

On the other side, just by taking the 2 or 3 doses per day, as prescribed, one regains good health, which in our terms is "sanity".

Preachers may or may not talk of the hell.....

 

But Guru Jee for sure tells us that: 

ਨਾਉ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰੁ ਹੈ ਨਾਇ ਲਇਐ ਨਰਕਿ  ਜਾਈਐ 

Naao Thaeraa Nirankaar Hai Naae Laeiai Narak N Jaaeeai ||

Your Name is the Fearless Lord; chanting Your Name, one does not have to go to hell.

 

Further on He tells us: 

ਜਮ ਦਰਿ ਬਧਾ ਚੋਟਾ ਖਾਏ 

Jam Dhar Badhhaa Chottaa Khaaeae ||

Bound and gagged at Death's Door, they are brutally beaten.

ਬਿਨੁ ਨਾਵੈ ਕੋ ਸੰਗਿ  ਸਾਥੀ ਮੁਕਤੇ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵਣਿਆ ॥੪॥

Bin Naavai Ko Sang N Saathhee Mukathae Naam Dhhiaavaniaa ||4||

Without the Name, there are no companions or friends. Liberation comes only by meditating on the Naam

 

Moreover, again He tells us:

ਜਮਕਾਲੁ ਤਿਸੁ ਨੇੜਿ  ਆਵੈ ਜੋ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵਣਿਆ ॥੬॥

Jamakaal This Naerr N Aavai Jo Har Har Naam Dhhiaavaniaa ||6||

The Messenger of Death does not draw near those who meditate on the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. 

 

He clearly warns us, that only thse who meditate on His Nam, shall be saved, for even the messenger of death dare not come near them.

We do not have to be very intelligent, thus to understand, that those who do not do this bhakti as seen in the verses above, shall be drowned in the terrible hell of the wheel  of "chaurasee ka ckakar" where only severe pain and agongy exists.

What other bigger hell can there be? Guru Sahiban do not want to frighten us with te reality of hell, but rather motivate and uplift us, with  the gyan of ultimate Truth, His sachaa Nao.

Life by itself is a hell,  for we are already away from Him since so long, and alas, we do nothing to make the most of this golden opportunity of human birth,  by running after all other external practices, except that one, of the jaap of the gurparasd of His Nam, as per throughout the Bani.

 

Stay blessed.

The preachers never talk a out it because they have no first-hand experience of it just like everything else they preach about. They are not bramgianies or advance souls. Their knowledge is all parrot fashion learning!  They just repeat everything they have learned by rote in various different ways in various different times and venues. They never reflect on anything they learn that’s why they all come across as superficial unable to communicate a deeper understanding of Gurbani. Best is do your own reflections and meditations on what you learn yourself. This helps to expand your understanding and you are better able to make sense of the teachings.

Veer ji you are 100% correct and spot on as i agree with you as they haven't got even 1% knowledge of our dharam granths nor they read from them is why they lack practical experience.
