2019-08-19 11:01:05 -0500 answered a question Is it possible that people who think they are spiritual are actually mentally ill ?

That is a limitation of western psychology. When you create a model and then try to fit things not accounted for in your model into it, you force those things to fit so they make sense to you. Western psychology is about the health of the ego. Spirituality is about going beyond ego.

  1. Not America. In future, borders will not be what they are now.
  2. Communities all over the world.
  3. The flags will be more beautiful and different from what we have now.
  4. This will unfold along its own timeline, not according to our expectations.
2019-08-19 10:11:46 -0500 answered a question What is the difference between Caliphate and Khalistan ?

Jaipreet Singh Ji - Your question is based on a false premise. Caliphate = The kingdom of the Caliph. Khalistan=A sovereign nation of Khalsa. The 960,000 Khalsa shall be all over the world and exists as a sovereign Khalsa Spiritual Nation, not a physical country. Their have been eight Caliphates. Khalistan has never existed.

The future must be global, not national. The time of nationalism is ending, as we can see from its desperate last gasps all around the globe. We are humans of the planet earth and can only rise as such.

2019-08-15 10:22:56 -0500 answered a question What is the difference between Punjabi Sikhs and Yogi Bhajan Sikhs ?

Well, I would say that in Punjab, the culture of seva is innate, whilst in the West the perfection of simran and the understanding of that ancient technology is strong. We all need each other. I have learned so much from my Punjabi families about our history, about sacrifice, about Gurbani, about seva and about how to live as a family. It is part of Guru Maharaj's understanding that East would come West and West would come East. When we join together, we share our virtues with each other and we overlook each other's faults. This is how we all become stronger and more complete Sikhs of the Guru.

2019-08-15 10:12:11 -0500 commented answer How the Guru pays for our karma ?

The way the karmas are covered by Guru Kirpaa is that Guru Ji guides us to the shortest path through it so that our karmas are paid quickly.

Nice explanation Jio!

2019-08-14 12:43:43 -0500 answered a question How the Guru pays for our karma ?

Perhaps some else remembers which video it was since there are a couple of hundred and I certainly don't remember. Perhaps it was this one Karma and Dharma in Your Life in which i talked about this tuk from Japji Sahib:

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਵੇਲਾ ਸਚੁ ਨਾਉ ਵਡਿਆਈ ਵੀਚਾਰੁ ॥ amrit vaylaa sach naa-o vadi-aa-ee veechaar. ਕਰਮੀ ਆਵੈ ਕਪੜਾ ਨਦਰੀ ਮੋਖੁ ਦੁਆਰੁ ॥ karmee aavai kaprhaa nadree mokh du-aar.

That said, karmas can be covered by Guru kirpaa. Over this we have no control.

Baba Fareed Ji is telling us of his vision. In his vision, he stands beyond the veil of death (etheric plane) looking back at the churning mass of humanity on the other side. In his state of samadhi he observes that some understand this vision and some do not. Hell is a state of mind in which one's selfish actions draw one further and further away from God consciousness resulting in the state of mind he describes.

2019-08-13 16:05:37 -0500 answered a question What is the significance of Mehla ?

The Mehl refers to the Guru Sahib who wrote that bani/shabad in SGGS. First Mehl to Guru Nanak, second to Guru Angad, third to Guru Amar Das, fourth to Guru Ram Das, fifth Mehl to Guru Arjan Dev and so on. Mehl doesn't refer to rag shabads but to the channel through which the shabad came.

2019-08-13 16:02:01 -0500 answered a question Does suicide happen by God's will too ?

Yes, but the result is still there. When we throw away one of our precious human incarnations, unless we have many saints praying for us, our soul moves way back along the chain of incarnations and needs to re-learn many lessons over again to reach the state of gratitude. That means that one may have to repeat millions of incarnations again in order to regain the blessing of a human birth.

2019-08-13 15:56:52 -0500 answered a question what is the difference between our will and God's will ?

Gurfateh Jaipreet Singh Ji! The bottom line is that you incur karma when you hurt other people physically or emotionally. Yes, it's all God's play, but that does not mean that we don't work on ourselves to peel away the anger, lust, attachment, etc. in our lives through Jaap, Taap, Sanjam. When the pressure is on, the only thing that carries us through is our own self-discipline. The thing about anger is that you must own it. It's YOUR anger. It has nothing to do with circumstances or even with anyone else's actions. I know you know this because you were aware that you did not go to Gurdwara Sahib, but rather made the decision to indulge your anger. If you must indulge your anger, express it as anger towards yourself and use that energy to do the work. Otherwise, when you take your anger out on others, you hurt them and create karma for yourself. Jaap Taap Sanjam.

2019-08-12 16:30:34 -0500 answered a question Are there different types of meditation ?

There are many, many types of meditation. In meditation one needs a single point of focus. That is usually mantra (sound) or yantra (mandala, candle, picture, etc.) In Sikhi, we usually use mantra (Naam) for meditation. It can either be chanted out loud (Japa) or chanted silently (Simran.) If you'd like to explore some different meditations, check out the Library of Teachings.

Yes, I studied with Yogi Bhajan from 1970-2004. Your navel point is innervated by the T10 dermatone (a branch of the sympathetic nerve trunk). The uterus, cervix and testicles are innervated by this branch, and the penis is innervated by T11. The nerves could mix up and give confused signals.

2019-08-12 13:45:27 -0500 answered a question What is the meaning of Krishna ?

Rama, Krishna, Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh (Shiva) are all mentioned in Gurbani. Krishna is spoken of 47 times in SGGS.

"The Gurmukhs are emancipated by the Lord. The Lord Krishna becomes the Gurmukh’s Companion. The Gurmukh finds the Merciful Lord. He is not found any other way. || 2 || He does not need to eat; His Hair is Wondrous and Beautiful; He is free of hate. Millions of people worship His Feet. He alone is a devotee, who becomes Gurmukh, whose heart is filled with the Lord, Har, Har." (ANG 98)

God in Guru Granth Sahib has been referred to by many names like Rama, Allah, Krishna,Gopal ,Hari,Sahib etc. However, when the reference is to a historical character(Avatar like the King 'Rama' or Sri Krishna of Dwarka), the difference is evident and has to be considered. So it is clear that at some places, the qualities of such historical Avatars (Rama, Krishna) have been praised, but at the same time the distinction between them and the True Formless Lord has been made.

2019-08-12 12:20:53 -0500 answered a question What is the chariot and what is charioteer ?

From Asa di War:

O Nanak, the soul of the body has one chariot and one charioteer.

In age after age they change; the spiritually wise understand this.

In the Golden Age of Sat Yuga, contentment was the chariot and righteousness the charioteer.

In the Silver Age of Traytaa Yuga, celibacy was the chariot and power the charioteer.

In the Brass Age of Dwaapar Yuga, penance was the chariot and truth the charioteer.

In the Iron Age of Kali Yuga, fire is the chariot and falsehood the charioteer. ||1||

2019-08-08 13:33:19 -0500 commented answer Does God do justice if yes then where and how ?

Yes, the final incarnation required for the soul to mature is liberation, but one may be given the opportunity to reincarnate after liberation in order to serve others on the Dharmic path.

2019-08-08 13:31:25 -0500 commented answer Does God do justice if yes then where and how ?

ANG 67: "The Pandits, the religious scholars, read and argue and stir up controversies, but without the Guru, they are deluded by doubt. They wander around the cycle of 8.4 million reincarnations; without the Shabd, they do not attain liberation..."

ANG 50 "|| Through 8.4 million incarnations you have wandered, to obtain this rare and precious human life. O Nanak, remember the Naam, the Name of the Lord; the day of departure is drawing near!"

ANG 27: "Through 8.4 million incarnations they wander lost and confused; through all their wandering and roaming, they are ruined. They act according to their pre-ordained destiny, which no one can erase."

2019-08-08 13:25:26 -0500 answered a question What does rags on the outside mean ?

It does not mean that God makes his worshipers poor, nor is it written to console the poor in the world. It means that when one is no longer trapped by ones own ego then one no longer feels the need to show off. Let us not judge by appearances. It's what inside that counts.

2019-08-08 13:17:48 -0500 answered a question Are religions created because of fear of death ?
  • Religions are a holdover from the real spiritual experiences of their "founders." First the teacher teaches how everyone can have these experiences of God. Then people fail to practice. Then people worship a man who had an experience in the past. Then people fall into the delusion that God is outside and become lost in the trap of otherness. Unless people actually transform themselves and break through the enticing veil of maya, religion descends into ritual.
  • All religions started with a technology of self-transformation. When that is understood and practiced with full commitment it works.
  • I would say Dharmic people appear to get crushed and evil people appear to be powerful. That's what it is, appearance. In reality people either base themselves in love or in fear. Love is always stronger than fear in the long run. We tend to judge by appearances and in much too short a time frame.
2019-08-08 11:42:25 -0500 answered a question Does God do justice if yes then where and how ?

From the vantage point of a single lifetime, things may seem unbalanced. In reality, justice plays out over the course of many human incarnations. Waheguru is beyond time and space, our perception is limited by time and space. We simply think too short term to understand God's play. Each soul goes through 8.4 million incarnations and out of those 8.4 million incarnations 840,000 are human incarnations. Thinking in this time frame, we understand how justice (balance) happens across time.
