Like today people go to America from India for holidays or getting a degree.If u see the world map india is on the east side and America is on the west side.I mean that u have to cross almost one side of the earth to another side similarly when our children will go from earth to space or another planet for holidays or for getting a degree.On that day there will be 960 million Khalsa and Khalsa raj would be on this Earth.Sikhism is not a old religion like Christianity or Islam which are more than 2000 years or 1500 years old.The creation of Khalsa is just 320 years old.So the concept of Sri Guru Granth or Khalsa is very new to humanity.So it is a very modern Religion.Actually it is the Religion of space age.What do you think about this?.

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.
