2019-06-26 17:46:10 -0500 answered a question Are these guys real Sikhs ?

Well, you've touched upon a hot topic: What is a Sikh? Who decides who is a Sikh and who is not? The question can be asked and answered on many levels. My personal understanding is that I have no right to judge anyone. The Guru chooses his Sikh, not the other way around.

As for the video, I have no idea who these men are and the video itself provides no context. Perhaps this person was smoking in a clearly marked no smoking area. Perhaps it's these fellows job to enforce that. That said, the same result could most likely have been achieved without violence.

Yes, all natural herbs and medicinal plants can be toxic when abused.

2019-06-26 10:48:34 -0500 answered a question Does 960 million Khalsa will become by people converting from Christianity,Hinduism and Budhism ?

Khalsa is not a religion. Nobody needs to convert from anything to anything. In less than 50 years there will be no such thing as religion. People will think it absurd to have had priests or "middlemen" between them and God. Khalsa is a state of being. That state is natural, simple and clear, so the infinity of the real Self shines out, free from all blame and doubt.

2019-06-26 10:40:06 -0500 answered a question How does Khalsa can rule the world for 5,000 years ?

The ages turn. The new age grows within the ruins of the old age like young grass shoots rising slowly amidst the rotting leaves. Slowly, steadily, the age is dawning. There is no higher or lower. "Nanak, uttam neech na koi." There is no greater or lesser avatar. We are all God. We all have the human power to "Christ ourselves" above the five tattvas and live as avatars. The Way is the same for all. The answers lie within you.

2019-06-26 10:35:36 -0500 answered a question Is marijuana allowed in Sikhism?

The Khalsa Rehat of Guru Gobind Singh prohibits "hookah." This has been interpreted to mean different things by different people. From my understanding of Gurbani, Guruji means that Khalsa needs no intoxicants and does not seek to become intoxicated. Meditation on Naam is our way. That said, all herbs and plants are given to animals and humans to nourish and heal us and marijuana is a medicine that can be used correctly for healing and balancing the body,. Medicinally it is only taken orally or topically, never smoked.

2019-06-26 10:21:55 -0500 answered a question Will the Khalsa will also rule in the Capricorn age ?

Yes, of course. And in the Capricornian Age we'll really get some stuff done! @;-)##

2019-06-25 15:52:20 -0500 answered a question Is their a certain ammount of karma

Karma is simply Newton's third law of motion: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every action (or spoken word) sets in motion a sequence that then leads to a consequence. We do not need to concern ourselves with other people's karmas; we only need to attend to our own. As we grow in awareness we gain the ability to check ourselves, i.e., observe how our own mind works and check words or actions that will create karma and choose not to say or do that. It's a constant process of self-awareness.

2019-06-24 10:30:38 -0500 answered a question Backbiting

You have completed step one (realizing that you are backbiting and deciding you don't want to do it anymore) and you have completed step two (forgiving yourself and actively committing to stopping this behavior) and so it's now time for the next step. The next step is making reparations to people you have hurt through your backbiting. That must be done sensitively... a meeting, a discussion a phone call, however the opportunity presents itself. Ill words create karma and that karma must be paid. Communicate in a loving way.

Of course Gurbani has contrad ictions in it.Life is filled with contradictions. The universe is full of contradictions. Contradictions are wonderful. The linear, rational mind tries to apply logic, but the world is not logical, it is magical. Gurbani is a reflection of the universe, and life on earth, as it is, not as we think about it.

Khalsa will rule through Kindness and compassion. It means that for many generations Khalsa will lead and protect people. The countries and governments we know now will disappear.

2019-06-12 13:44:20 -0500 answered a question How can Guru Nanak be the Guru of Aquarian age?

Gurfateh Jaipreet Singh Ji! Guru Nanak is called that because his teachings are the foundational universal lifestyle for the Aquarian Age. All people are equal (Uttam neech na koe) Everything is God (Ik Ongkar) we are put on this earth to serve and care for each other. Timing of birth and death of the physical body have nothing to do with this. Nanak is as present now as ever.

2019-06-11 10:35:54 -0500 answered a question How can be there only 423 years left in Kalyug ?

There seems to be some confusion here between the Ages, which are astronomical and last approximately 2,000 years and the Yugas, which, as you mention, are MUCH longer.

A Maha Yuga is 4,320,000 years.

Sat Yuga (Golden Age - Age of Truth) is 1,728,000 years.

Treta Yuga (Silver Age - Age of Faith) is 1,296,000 years.

Duapar Yuga (Bronze Age - Age of Doubt) is 864,000 years.

Kali Yuga (Iron Age - Age of Darkness) is 432,000 years.

Together, the four Ages comprise one Maha Yug (Great Age) of 4,320,000 years. The ratio of Yuga duration is thus 4:3:2:1 totaling the 4,320,000 years of Maha Yuga. Two thousand Maha Yugas (8,640,000,000 years) are said to equal merely one day and one night in the life of Brahm.

Dawn of the present phase of the Kali Yuga is 3606 B.C. Middle is 582 B.C. Twilight is A.D. 1939 End is A.D. 2442

The Astrological Ages

Each 'Great Age' lasts approximately 2,000 years, roughly speaking, and they move backwards through the constellations: therefore, we are now moving out of the Piscean age and into the Aquarian age.

Before Pisces there were the Arien, Taurean, Geminian, Cancerian, Leonian ages, and so on.

Age of Leo (Sun) 10,000 BC - Atlantis - early Egypt (Ra worship) Age of Cancer (Moon) 8,000 BC - destruction of Atlantis by water Age of Gemini (mind) 6,000 BC - Babylonia Assyria (cuniform writing) Age of Taurus (bull) 4,000 BC - Egypt (worship of bull portrayed with sun between horns) Age of Aries (Mars) 2,000 BC - Romans (war, exploration, conquest) Age of Pisces (Neptune) 0 BC - Buddha, Zoroaster, Confucious, Lao-tse, Jesus Age of Aquarius (Uranus) 2,000 AD - Universal consciousness, Khalsa

2019-06-10 10:25:05 -0500 answered a question Can God help me ?

It's not so much about praying as it is working on yourself to establish a solid connection to the infinity within you, the part of yourself that is unknown to you. Get up in the morning, bathe and take 30 minutes to meditate and begin in this way to train your mind so it serves you instead of making you do things.

Videos:

  1. The Four Foundations of Meditation

  2. Kirtan Kriya Meditation

When you begin to meditate, your mind will try hard to distract you. No problem. Just keep going in the sound current and the rhythm of the meditation and gently bring your mind back to the mantra. It's like training a wild horse... slowly slowly, but never give and inch. Keep going for 90 days and then be so kind as to post here again and let us know how you're doing.

All love in Divine, .....G

2019-06-07 11:12:03 -0500 answered a question What is White tantric yoga?Is Black tantric yoga real?How they are different?

Envision the energy of the universe as both parallel and perpendicular in nature, like a cloth woven together. As a cloth becomes stronger when it is stretched on the diagonal, so the White Tantric Yoga diagonal, or ‘Z’ energy is stronger. This energy, when directed by the Mahan Tantric, cuts through the blocks that are stuck in the subconscious mind.

Using the diagonal energy, the Mahan Tantric connects his subtle body to the subtle bodies of the participants through the course facilitator. This works the same way as a worldwide telephone system that relies on satellites and electromagnetic energy in order to connect two parties.

White Tantric is a powerful way to cleanse one's mind and deepen awareness. It is one tool among many that has helped many to work through karmas quickly so that the destiny may be realized.

White Tantric Yoga should not be confused with black or red tantric. Those forms of yoga also transform energy, but in a different way and for different purposes. Black tantric directs the energy to manipulate another human being and red tantric directs the energy solely for sexual purposes.

2019-06-07 11:07:37 -0500 answered a question How Sikhism will be revived or become 960 million ?

Guruji chooses his Sikh. The Sikh does not choose his Guru. Those who have that destiny written on their foreheads to live as Khalsa in this incarnation shall do so, not by the work of any man, but by Guruji himself. Sikhi does not well up within the heart by Khande De Pahul, that is one stage on the path, but Sikhi cannot be taught. It is caught. It is the fragrance of the Guru borne on a light morning breeze, the line of a shabad that makes you start crying, the deep illumination and joy that comes after two hours of japa. It is planted by Guru Ji's hand as a seed within the heart and as we water that tender seed with our sadhana, simran, seva and paath, and that seed sprouts and grows. Khalsa cannot be bestowed, it must be grown from within and earned through the tapa of many lifetimes.

I can speak for The west only, No, 1984 did not slow the expansion of Sikhi at all that I can see in the Western world. There are more goray Sikhs now than ever before. 1984 was Guru Ji's wakeup call to the Panth. We could no longer continue sleepwalking forwards.

2019-06-05 10:51:52 -0500 answered a question Is Sikhism a religion of space age ?

Gurfateh Jaipreet Ji! Khalsa lifestyle is universal and applies to humans at all times. It is a way of living that works for eveyone. That does mean that it is a lifestyle for the present and the future. Those 960 million that Guru Gobind Singh Ji foretold are arising right now all over the world. I see this wherever I travel.

The tuk of Bhai Nand Lal that we recite as part of the Dohra emphasizes this:

ਰਾਜ ਕਰੇਗਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਆਕੀ ਰਹਿਹ ਨ ਕੋਇ । ਖਾਰ ਹੋਇ ਸਭ ਮਿਲੈਂਗੇ ਬਚਹਿ ਸ਼ਰਨ ਜੋ ਹੋਇ ।

The Sikh people shall remain free and sovereign. This shall not be challanged, for all shall realize, after bitter frustration, that there is no redemption except in the way of the life that the Khalsa upholds!

Actually the concept of redemption is also not understood. Again from the Latin ‘redimere,’ it means to buy back again, to regain possession of what one has sold or lost. So what are we talking about? The soul has taken birth in this human form to attach itself back to the Infinity. Each of us is a part of God. The part of God in us is called the soul. So, we are here to merge with the totality. We are already One with God. We have simply forgotten. The experience of remembering is what we call redemption. It is regaining the knowledge, with which we were all born, that we are one with the One.

All ‘religions’ are of the past. In the future, there will be no such thing as religion. The concept of middlemen: priests and rabbis, etc. will seem absurd. Each of us will stand as sovereign spiritual, self-sensory human beings consciously connected in the web of all existence.
