    Guru And Waheguru

I have come to accept that the voice in my head is the voice of the Guru. A miraculous feat whereby wisdom is present and ready to be...

    Leisure Can Someone Pls Help Me Find This Waheguru Simran

    It was put in the background of an entirely unrelated video on Youtube. I don't think they knew what was being chanted in it... but it's clearly 'Waheguru Sahib Jio" But it's probably the most haunting simran I have ever heard! Anyway I'd like to find the original and listen to the whole...

    Leisure Scary Experience, Waheguru Ji Was With Me

    Not last night, but Monday night (actually early Tuesday morning) at 1:00 am the fire alarm went off in my apartment building. Our building has been having false alarms lately, so I got up and got dressed leisurely... not quickly by any means. I got my pet ferret into his carrier, though I...

    Atheism Do You Believe In Waheguru

    Taken from Internet: In a mother's womb were two babies. One asked the other: "Do you believe in life after delivery?" The other replies, "why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later. "Nonsense," says the other...

    With Waheguru's Blessings

    While pondering shabad of the week, I am always trying to understand more, dig deeper what Guru ji is telling me. One recurrent theme in Gurbani is with the WaheGuru's blessings. I wonder whether this has been mistranslated and what it really means for the following reasons: 1) God is not a...

And wondered if a perpetual sense of awe is what the Gurmantar is supposed to instill in us.Awe noun 1. an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc., produced...

    Taoism Tao = Waheguru, The Ek Onkar?

    I used to be quite interested in Taoism and in my readings about Sikhi I think there are a lot of parallels. One being that (in my opinion) the formless and mysterious nature of the Tao is similar to the formless and mysterious nature of the Waheguru. The very first verses of Lao Tzu's Tao Te...

    Guru Arjan As Incarnation Of Waheguru?

    Gurfateh Some tuks from this shabad were sung at the Gurdwara I attend recently. I was suprised by the translation on the projector screen.

    Guru's Grace Vs Personification Of Waheguru

    I was replying to this thread: http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/sikh-youth/34110-the-importance-of-kesh-for-sikh.html when I realised my reply had turned into a thread of it's own. One criticism I have of that article is that it personifies God, which I don't think fits with the Sikh concept of...

Then I want you to know that they are Sikhs who seem to want to practice Sikhi - and are satisfied that they do...
