    Hukam Vs Karma Vs Destiny Vs Choice

    Hi there - I just came back from a young friends funeral. He was only 35, 2 beautiful kids and a lovely wife. Died from a 4 year battle with cancer. Very sad. The Antam Ardas was peaceful and comforting. But reoccurring message I kept hearing was that this was Guru's Hukam and he planned it...

    Sikhism Hukamnama Of Akal Takht Sahib (History And Concept)

    Hukamnama, literally means "Royal Order." As Akal Takht Sahib is the Throne of the Almighty, the orders issued by Akal Takht Sahib are called Hukamnamas.

    Hukkam And Fortune Telling

    So I came by today to ask a question. I see there is a thread about hukkam vs tarot which I did read with interest and reply to, but this is not solely about tarot. I've been wondering about this. So as I understand it Sikhi claims that everything is hukkam. As in it's pre-determined, no...

    Hukam Vs Haumai

    Sat Sri Akaa This has probably been discussed before, but I seek clarity and discussion about my current understanding, please. Haumai is the condition of ego-self that presents itself as separate from everything else. It is the root of the problem that comes with being human. It is the...

    Could This Article Be Describing Hukam?

    Free Will Is an Illusion, so What? What are the implications? Published on May 8, 2012 by Raj Raghunathan, Ph.D. in Sapient Nature Think of someone that you dislike. Let’s call this person X. Now, imagine that you were born with X’s “genetic material.” That is, imagine that you had X’s...

    Hukam From Sri Darbar Sahib Back In Time

    Are the hukamnamas from past saved anywhere? I mean, is it possible to find out the hukam from Darbar Sahib from the day I was born? I am just curious what it was... I don't know if its possible to go back that far. I know some apps now send everyday and you can go backward for some time, but...

    Shabad, Naam, Amrit, Hukam, Guru - Are They Synonyms?

    I was reading T. Singh Ji's article The Guru: Meaning and Business of the Guru (available here), when I came upon this paragraph: As discussed in detail in Part 1 of this Reflection, whenever there is a mention of Guru or Satguru in the Gurbani, it points only towards the non-dual Divine...

    What I Believe Hukam To Be

    I have a very clear idea of what I believe Hukam to be, whether it is in line with established Sikh thought, I do not know, but it is a foundation of my current thinking, In the past I have struggled to be live by the truth, really struggled, the truth screams out at me at every oppertunity...

    Islam Today's Hukam

    _/|\_ Sat Nam I am hoping to engage in some discussion on what today's Hukam states about Muslims. The Guru Granth Sahib calls people of all and no religions to be honest with themselves when it comes to their relationship with God. There was a time when it hurt my feelings a little...

    Hukam Vs. "Tarot" Methods

    Sat Nam I love the Daily Hukam. From what I understand, the Sri Guru Granth Sahib is opened to a random page and it becomes the Guru's message for the day. Is it true that Sikhs also do this to get help with certain questions they have about things in their lives? How is this done? Is there...

    Confused Ji and I would like to take up the discussion of Karma and right understanding of Karma, stated in another post. I suggest we do so here, pulling on Sikh and non-Sikhi philsophy as appropriate to arrive at a conclusion. The Sikh Wiki reads: This might be the personal opinion of...

    If Everything Happens According To Hukam, Then Why Do We Pray?

    Dear SPNers.I was going through this thread "Sikhism and Black Magic" in this forum when I read people say everything is hukam and one should not worry about going to babas or black magicians for benefit. One often comes around the work "Hukam" in Sikhism. I think it means God's will. If...

    Divorce

    hello all, Recently I have been hearing that divorce is against the will of God. so my question is, if God knows that we will make mistakes (and marriage to the wrong person maybe one) why are people advising that divorce is against his will. Do you think its because of culture, status or just...

    Hukam (Will) And Sikh Values

    My dear brothers and sisters kaurhug I am very much intrigued by the Sikh theological concept of "Hukam" (Will). I have been pondering this idea deeply. I am really amazed by the number of teachings of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji that I already, deep down, believe. Much of Sikhism resonates...

    Happiness Is Not An Aeroplane, It Is Hukam

    Gurfateh A few months ago, I realised that my happiness seemed to ebb and flow depending largely on external circumstances. Food made me happy, Sex made me extremely happy, not worrying about bills, closing the shop, having enough money, I was literally an aeroplane being handed over from...

    Petitionary Prayer And Hukam

    If everything happens per Hukam, then what's the point of petitionary prayer or ardaas where something is asked for? If Waheguru is the inner-knower, and It provides everything all the time, how can my concentrated asking possibly influence the outcome of anything? Isn't it better to "pray"...
