To be fair, fables like this are kind of silly. I'm not familiar with many of them, but the One about a cobra providing shade for Guru Nanak as an infant or the one about Guru Gobind Singh's horse refusing to walk through tobacco fields seem more like bedtime stories for children than anything to be taken seriously. I'll take that back if these stories are found in gurbani. That is all.
God created the universe out of nothing. I would say that anything is possible

that is an oxy{censored}, how could there be nothing if God was present, God is not nothing, therefore, he could not have created the universe out of nothing

True, but if these stories are true and Gurus wanted us to base our beliefs on them they would be in the bani.
i understand what you're saying, but its not thousands of years since they lived on the earth. History books recount stories of historical people in detail who lived way before their time. Anyway everyones free to believe whatever so live and let live :)

yes, live and let live, let us respect all beliefs, especially ones that are deeply personal and should not be shared by way of conversion, all personal experiences are valid, but only to the person concerned.

It's like everyone has their own personal denomination here and even simply stating how you think about something is bound to come off like you're talking bad about someone else's deeply held beliefs. No offense intended. Live and let live, believe and let believe. :y:

not quite, there is however a fine line between sharing and proselytizing.

So, I never found the reason why there is suffering in this world, and I just don't understand why it happens to good people as well and why the 1984 Anti-Sikh riots happened. So many innocent Sikhs died, but they didn't do anything at all, but they suffered. Why did God do such a thing? Also why is there large scale tradegies and terrorist attackings that happen towards innocent people as well.
Read page 3-4 of SGGSJ .. everything explained very well..

@chetan sharma ji, perhaps you'd also like to share your own understanding of the shabads and angs you've been sharing so we might benefit from your insight? For many of us the Gurbani is beautiful but difficult to understand. Thanks

in this Guru Sahib teach that creation of Akal purkh is beyond imagination, how can we say he just create only good things.. and how we can say who create bad things (fools, thiefs, embezzels, who impose there will by force, sinners, bad peoples who cut throats, ruthless killers, wretches (eat filth) ) .. Guru Sahib said he create both good and bad.. with karma/actions (own) some people reaches close to Akal purkh (with good actions) and some people go away from Akal purkh(because of bad actions )

Featured Shabad

This is one of my favourite shabads. Very simple but truly packs a punch with its message. Unfortunately it is not widely known. As previously English literal meanings first, Rawel Singh's...
