    In my opinion there are no spooks, ghosts, spirits, goblins or dwarves. Oh hang, no, there are dwarves, but no pixies.

    I have been through hell in my life, and not once have I encountered any form of bad spirit. The ones you have to worry about are in your head, reading Bani soothes your fears, understanding and living Bani gives you a purpose, and that is life.

    Please do not allow such a gift of life to be ruined by such pointless superstition, we are protected from them, do you know by what? the truth. And the truth is they do not exist, you are in complete control, be it a Gurmukh or a manmukh.One leads to peace and happiness, the other to a life of fear, ritual, and false hopes.

    If it makes you feel any better, feel free to PM me a simple statement giving authority for me to deal with these spooks on your behalf and just send them my way.

    There is no such thing as all this voodoo stuff.
    We shouldn't even think that such exists, even if it did then the power of bani or even a single mention of ''waheguru'' can overpower any of this rubbish.

    As sikhs we are far, very far away from such things, they can't touch us as they are not in our world.

    Out of interest why do you say Guru Nanak protects you..? I thought the Gurus were only human and that Waheguru is the only one who can protect us from anything if He so wills.

    I think he's trying to say that how can a Baba save him if Guru Nanak cannot-To me, this implies that the true baba was of course Nanak, so all these that parade as babas don't come anywhere near the real deal.

    Guru Nanak is not worshipped as God or any kind of god, but I know that some of these make believe babas have photos of themselves on ornaments and necklaces...etc... which they ask followers to wear for such protection!!!-
    Now, in a case like this, I would assure the person to switch the picture to Guru Nanak's and treat him as your guide and protection!!!
    I don't advise people to rely on such materials or pictures, but in this isolated case of getting through to some confused other baba convert, I would advise this as an alternative.-
    -You see, these followers won't listen to anything that says their baba is fake or crap. BUT, they will listen and pay attention to an alternative suggestion !!!
    Hence, alternative is to show them a true baba and guru.

    Thank you for the help Luckysingh-ji

    I'm still a little confused though, I still don't get why Guru Nanak is who we should go to for a guide and protection.. I know you've tried to explain this but I still don't understand, it sounds like you're saying he can protect us but I thought the Ek Onkar was the only one with any power to pray to for protection against things.

    Sorry if I'm being a little bit of a challenge, I know sometimes questions like this aren't easily answered. I appreciate the help

    No problem, my response and suggestion was for those 'narrow minded fake baba followers' and believe me there are millions!!

    I did try to make clear that the suggestion of Guru Nanak for them was because they won't buy anything about their fake baba being a con and fake, -BUT they WILL listen to an ALTERNATIVE.- Hence what better then to suggest they use BABA NANAK's picture or necklace as their protector.
    The ''alternative'' is the only way to get through to these narrow minded converts, as they won't accept anything that has not been human or person at one time.

    For people not under the baba convert category, then all you need is faith in the ONE Supreme Almighty. (not human like us!!)

    Hope that clarifies a little.

    Just quickly, I think a 'fake baba follower' is going to relate to Guru Nanak the same way they relate to their fake baba. By giving them a picture of Guru Nanak instead, I feel it cheapens Guru Nanak and could create or perpetuate a belief that simply carrying a picture of a Guru Sahib will bring one protection.

    There is no supernatural protection. The only protection one has is to beg for Naam. It is all hukam.

    A very good point Ishnaji, I didn't at all think about that, as you know.
    I will take that statement back to extinguish.
    I'm not even sure how it all stemmed that way but it started on me commenting about someone else's post!!!

    In a way, I'm glad it was mentioned, as I have learnt something valuable!!
    Although when I penned it down, I did sense that something may be wrong but couldn't quite pin point it-

    -Many Thanks

    The worst kind of spirits are the 5 vices within us. And every time we listen to them is a bad omen! Let our surat (thinking) be dissolved in complete Simran (remembrance) of Waheguru, so that these 5 thieves can't touch us!
