    Who Is This Creator Who Cares For Us In Such Grand Fashion?

    This is a line from another thread, but its a good question, my own feeling is that this Creator is the sum of Creation, although I would probably dispute the caring bit, slightly Abrahamic, slightly Vedic, Creator cared by giving us a brain, what else is there to do? I do not believe Creator is...

    What Is Love?

    I am not big on love, its hard to be big on something that you do not understand, or when you have been told all your life that your 'doing it wrong', I have been told all my life, in probably a dozen relationships that I have a strange and uncommon view of love. Well thats ok, if there is...

    Worship … Love Of God: Greed Or Mortal Dread

    The Creator – God, as usually described; His nature and existence! Not new questions for humanity but baffling, nevertheless. What do historians and linguists tell us about the word god and its origin. I am not a theologian so let me lay the matter to rest with the brief note that the English...

    Is Our Obsession With Guru Taking Us Further Away From Creator

    Gurfatehji In my opinion, it was never the Gurus intention to turn themselves into Gods, to be worshipped or to be put onto a pedestal. I believe that the Gurus had no special powers, no supernatural powers, they had just managed to achieve the state of Naam, and wanted to share that with us...

    What Does Creator Look Like To You?

    Gurfateh Although the philosophical and pragmatic elements of sikhism interest me hugely as a way of living your life, I come unstuck on the love for Creator. It is very difficult to love something you cannot hear, you cannot see, you cannot touch, although Creation can be heard/seen/touched...

    How Vast Is The Creator? Do All Religions Reside There?

    Probably very minuscule of the total creator that is resides in all of us. Maybe just enough that we can recognize consonance in creation and live accordingly. So why is there the following saying, “To find God/Creator you got to see inside of yourself first.” Does it make sense? I...

    The Uniqueness of Guru nanak Ji Sahib's Nirmal Panth has always been regarded as either "subservient" to Hinduism/vedic philosophy or a side kick to Islam's monotheism philosophy or even worse..an amalgmation of Both !! Most Sikh scholars of repute have not been able to discard their...

    Guru Nanak Never Questioned The Creator

    Guru Nanak Never Questioned the Creator Most of the scholars that I am aware of, interpreted Guru Nanak’s shabad which starts with “khurasaan khasmana kia.” quite contrary to Guru ji’s love for the Creator. It was never acceptable to me that Guru ji would use such language for the Creator...
