    He didn't.

    He didn't

    he didn't

    It can't and does not.....however, faith has a great placebo effect.

    God is in all of us, it is up to us to realise "God". Control and defeat the 5 thieves and realise what is already within you.




    I would suggest read about Sikhism from rational sources eg Dr Gopal Singh, Dr I J Singh, Patwant Singh etc. You seem to have got your information from Sakhi's which at best are unreliable, and at worst utter nonsense.

    Garbage IN..garbage OUT.....the Most authentic reference to Gurmatt is the GURBANI written and endorsed by the GURU himself. Read THAT and get the REAL STUFF.

    Indeed Gyani ji, it is this one up man ship with miracle making that is making people dissillusioned.

    Sikhism is such a down to Earth faith. It does not believe in miracle making. These miracle have polluted Sikhism and distort its message.

    If we believe that "higher than truth is truthful living" then there can be no place for miracles.:singhbhangra:

    My Brother, Sikhism is a religion of love and sacrifice. One becomes a Sikh the very moment he/she considers himself as a Sikh. If you are steadfast on our love for the Guru, no circumstance whatsoever can shake your faith. ....and there is a very narrow line between faith and blindfaith. So, don't wait for a miracle to happen, you yourself are a miracle, a gift of God to the world. Learn to love, i say again, and you will find yourself as a better Sikh.

    As a scientist, I can "see" god everywhere I look. Sikhism provides a logical basis for the vastness of the Universe. Furthermore, science has given evidence that meditation can physically change the structure of your physical and mental mind. Some things are beyond the realm of science as of yet, but our knowledge grows everyday. Some people believe that science and spirituality are incompatible... I can not see that. God created the universe according to the laws of nature... laws that are so intricately perfect mathematically, chemically, etc., that it is hard not to find spirituality from it all. Look at the odds in evolution and you will see how amazing evolution really is! Faith is about looking to teachings for spiritual guidance and deciding what is best for your life! peacesign

    You opened my eyes "Sikhism does not promise you anything. It provides you the tool kit to achieve spirituality including searching for God within and without."
    Chamatkars are done by the magecians just for their Rozi-Roti.

    The Perennial Tradition

    A broken clock is still right twice a day. Just because you followed Sikhi for the wrong reasons doesn't mean it's wrong.

    Find a satsangat and you will see it work firsthand.[/QUOTE]

    It was though meditation on the Gurbani that all science happens.

    BRO..... See, this is my interpretation of GURBANI.
    First of all none of that shit ever happened that you have doubts on.... talkin' abt baba deep singh holding head in hand while fighting, and gurbani healing cancers and guru nanak's PANJA' nishaan on that ROCK
    1. IF Gurbani could heal cancer, why would guru sahib open CLINICS.... read 3rd guru's history.
    2. If you say that nishaan OF PANJA is actually of guru sahib's, im an architecture student i've read all about rocks, if there was a nishaan, it would have been eroded by now by the effect of weathering and seasoning.
    3. I SAY GURBANI IS PURE LOGIC.

    SEE, i'll give meanings of some of the words guru sahib used in BANI for your better understanding.

    HUKAM - Laws of Nature

    GOD/Eternal Entity - Unreachable, Out Of human's Reach.... Stop trying to make something happy that is already out of your reach, guru sahib has said this tons of time that GOD IS AGAM, APAAR, etc. you cant make someone happy who has no DISPUTE with anyone " NIRVAIR" Eternal entity is already happy with you.

    NAAM/ JAP /SAROVAR - Understanding the Message.

    GURU ( as of now ) - KNOWLEDGE ( The reading source of SGGS could be anything, be it smartphone, Pothi, Book, anything. BUT GURU IS KNOWLEDGE. )

    AARTI - what POOJA/AARTI can you offer while the whole earth itself is giving god its own aarti.

    GOD has gave you all the resource that you need to sustain your life, now he isnt gonna come to feed you, you gotta do it by yourself.

    THERE IS GOD, YES, I AGREE, but you cant do nothing about it. you cant make him happy by doing anything. what you sow is what you'll get. GOD isn't gonna come and put the spoon in your mouth. You've Got the Raw Material, you are the Entrepreneur now. BE A GOOD MAN, HELP OTHER PEOPLE in their work, LIVE a TRUTHFUL LIFE, BE A STRONG MAN ( be it mentally, physically or financially.).

    THIS IS MY CURRENT UNDERSTANDING OF SIKHI, FEEL FREE TO PROVE ME WRONG CUZ SIKHI IS ALWAYS LEARNING AND I WONT REJECT A STRONG ARGUMENT, IF IT HAS ANY LOGIC.

    THANKYOU!!
