Seeker3k ji,There can be millions question on this question but I am looking for personal answers.
Where was the soul before the birth? Where will it go after one your owdie? Does every living thing have soul? Humans, animals and vegetation
First of all I want to thank you for the intriguing questions. In order for all of us to interact and find the answers, I have a couple of questions for you for elaboration and clarification. I hope you do not mind responding to them so we can make this thread interesting where more people can participate and share their views.
What is Soul for you as a person and what has been your understanding of Soul?
Have your views regarding the Soul changed with time, knowledge and age? If they have, then in what way?
Thanks & regards
Seeker3k ji,This is forum I will not get into debate. You can post your thoughts if you don’t have personal experience
Body of Post:In Sikhism, is there soul? Who created soul? Who control soul?
So if one were to reply to the title one has to provide interpretation of Sikhism as considered opinion or belief. But if one answers the body of your post one can address without much consideration of Sikhism and simply state one's belief or understanding..... I am looking for personal answers.
Some one said here that we don’t have personal soul. When one die he just die that’s all. If that is the case then why we need to study the holy books and do the naam simran? If good soul and bad soul end up in same place then don’t need to waste time doing naam simran. Bani tell us to do the naam simran.???
Ishna Ji ,Gurbani is to make your precious life smooth and divine, now to death, if you have peace in life death is just a smooth transition.[/SIZE][/FONT]Seeker3k
Just elabourating my personal thoughts on this point and then I will be quiet.
Guru Arjun Dev Ji says this precious human life we have is our chance to meet the Divine. . . . . . . .
I think, the goal is to make death a smooth transition. If you have peace Ishna
I am not expert in Sikhism. That’s why I asked this question. Many people (none Sikh) ask me what I think about the soul in Sikhism.
The 3 major religions Jews, Christian, Muslims. Claim that their God told them they will not be reborn. They have to wait for the judgment day. Then you will be raised and be saved. It don’t satisfy me. Hindus have very elaborate system about the soul. They claim soul will be born n die n born again and again till they have learned what is needed for them to get mukti. It can take millions of years. Sikhs claim that they are not Hindus. So I wanted to know what is the soul’s fate in Sikhism.
Here there have to be many experts in Sikhism to know what the gurbani say about it.
Most tell me that God create soul. Then it must be God who control the soul. God chose the life for us. Some one said here that we don’t have personal soul. When one die he just die that’s all. If that is the case then why we need to study the holy books and do the naam simran? If good soul and bad soul end up in same place then don’t need to waste time doing naam simran. Bani tell us to do the naam simran.???
Most religions claim there is One God. If they are right then how come one God give 2 and more message to humans. He tells Jews, Christian and Muslim that they will not be reborn. And tell Hindus they will be reborn over and over. The 3<sup>rd</sup> message to Sikhs. Some be reborn and some will not be reborn.
What the God was thinking when he created us? There has to be some kind of system. But looks like no one knows what that system is.
Sinnerji these quotes of yours worry me ever so slightly, and I do not agree with either statement,Ishna Ji ,Gurbani is to make your precious life smooth and divine, now to death, if you have peace in life death is just a smooth transition.
