    Worldly attachments are one of the 5 evils, "Moh".


    *note: I am not saying or endorsing gurbani is evil, l0l.

    Gurbani by definition detaches one from the world and attaches one to God (which in actuality is no attachment at all). What the mind gets attached to are the concepts in Gurbani. Like virtues, vices, reincarnation, liberation, truthful living, meditation, worship, the concept of almighty, omnipresent, limitless God etc. The mind, constantly attaching itself to objects, can attach itself to these things, and it needs to in order to learn but it must start cultivating detachment in order to progress. It must transcend the system it uses as a crutch.

    So yes one can get attached to Gurbani but it is all part of the learning process. If done correctly, no attachment will remain at the end of the process.

    Thank you!! I believe I got my answer.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
