    What's Wrong With God?

    Are you sure? Or perhaps is that how THEY imagine our Creator / Source to be? Just because a certain group of people ascribe certain (mostly human) traits to something / someone they can’t fully understand doesn’t mean that entity actually fits their interpretation. I would say it’s more...

    Dasam Granth Insight On Dasam Granth (bachitar Natak) | Dr Karminder Singh

    It’s ONLY Gurus word for you because you BELIEVE it is!!! For others it’s NOT his word, it’s adulterated material, therefore it’s NOT bani. Definition of a Sikh covers writings and uttering of the ten Gurus. For those who do not believe DG was written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, it does NOT fall...

    Does Kaam Mean Lust Or Worldly Desires? Meaning Of Kaam As Per Gurmat

    I always try to correct those who think and declare that kaam=sex. Lust for sex CAN be kaam. But sex itself is not something wrong especially between married persons. Similarly, lust for money, or power over others, or drugs, or alcohol, or status, or possessions, etc can ALL be kaam. Kaam is...

    Sikhi Thousand Lives Of Reincarnating Minds

    Actually that identity is only associated to that body... remove that identity (if you had amnesia let’s say)... you wake up and forget everything about your identity. Do YOU still exist? Did you die? No of course not. But there is no Harry Ji left ornleast his identity everything ‘inside’ that...

    Sikhi Thousand Lives Of Reincarnating Minds

    Perhaps the best way to word it is that your body is not my body... or rather not your or my but rather that body and this body. The you and me behind them are one in the same according to Gurbani. But I get the feeling that you consider the physical body known as Harry Ji IS fully you and...

    Sikhi Thousand Lives Of Reincarnating Minds

    Perfect implies there is something imperfect to compare it to. That would mean duality. Creator just ‘is’ One is One there is no other to make comparisons. Duality and ONEness are concepts in Gurbani. I didn’t make them up. I’m trying to explain how I have come to understand what it is Gurbani...

    Sikhi Thousand Lives Of Reincarnating Minds

    I guess for those who believe that any idea of reincarnation mentioned in Gurbani means some change in psyche (while in this one life) then any reference to dying must mean change in thoughts and not death as in physical death? Then it wouldn’t make sense though... it would be essentially saying...

    I Want To Attend Gudwara. But All Of Their Contact Numbers Are Useless

    Actually anyone can do katha. A granthi is not necessarily any more qualified to do it than a learned member of sangat.

    A Conscious Creator In Sikhi And Other Faith Traditions?

    It’s proven trees communicate through root systems and have a ‘memory’ of sorts. They can also move to avoid harm and when electrodes applied there was shown they react to pain.

    I Want To Attend Gudwara. But All Of Their Contact Numbers Are Useless

    Actually one can be considered a Gyani / Giani Ji without having caretaker duties of a Gurdwara. Basically a Granthi is a sevadar. They are caretaker or custodian as Tejwant Ji explaiend. Usually elected for a set time period. They open the Gurdwara, do sukhassan etc. A Giani is someone we...

    Hard Talk Idols Of Sikh Gurus Being Sold In Market

    Some people matha tel to more than SGGSJ. Some also bow to other granths. Some bow to images of Gurus (the paintings we have come to think of as the Gurus really is artist impression and we don’t know how accurate. And besides a photo is NOT the same as the Guru. Some bow to various historical...

    How Do We Obtain A Human Birth?

    Here are a couple examples... first a cat saves a boy from a dog attack. If cat was operating only on instinct it would not put its own life in danger to save a member of a completely different species. Second a mix... try to see them as only acting on instinct. Would a dog acting only on...
