No. This is all the play of your mind.

2020-02-28 09:58:08 -0600 answered a question why did yogi bhajan said 960 million will come from china,europe and russia where as Guru Gobind Singh ji said 960 million khalsa will come from whole world

This is a second hand source quote. Clearly the Khalsa is rising everywhere. The seeds from the East have been planted in the West, not only China, Europe and Russia, but all over the world.

That remains to be seen. An investigative team has begun researching the facts.

Yes it's fine. We each do the work we have been given. Dirt can be cleaned. Do be humble and nice, but do set your boundaries as well so that your co-workers do not behave ungracefully to you.

2020-02-24 15:45:30 -0600 answered a question How do i stop this mindset???

Your thoughts of possible pregnancy are haunting thoughts. That is, they recur again and again in different contexts. Your question is "how do I stop these thoughts?" There is a meditation that will do this for you if you practice it every day: Guided Meditation for Haunting Thoughts

I didn't realize it was removed from the App store since I still have it installed. Contact the developer, Karandeep Singh at [email protected] I think he will write back to you.

2020-02-12 09:49:36 -0600 answered a question Why do people color their hair in old age ?

Same as shaving. People have an idea of how they wish to look and then they shape themselves to look like their concept. For people who color their hairs, they wish to look younger than their actual age.

2020-02-11 10:38:18 -0600 answered a question Why do we feel guilty ?

Things are not good or bad except that thinking makes them so. Your guilt comes from preconceived notions, i.e. how you have been programmed to think about sex.

2020-02-10 11:52:29 -0600 answered a question I have spiritually and mentally digressed

It is time to develop a relationship with that part of yourself which is infinite and unlimited... that part of you which is unknown to you. In order to do that you must work on yourself and develop the ability to go within. Unless you develop and experience that trust within yourself you will never be able to develop trust outside of yourself. Instead of saying, "there's no place to go but up..." I would say instead, "there's no place to go but in." Train yourself and begin to develop a regular habit to meditate.

2020-02-10 10:49:46 -0600 answered a question Is Qualia what people are looking for ?

Withdrawing the attention from the sense organs (closing the nine gates) the shashrara (the 10th gate - dasam duar) opens. It is not the qualia, but the non-attachment to them that Gurbani speaks of.

2020-02-10 10:42:14 -0600 answered a question Why do some Sikhs speak in shakespeare ?

English used to have a familiar case (like French, German, Spanish, etc.) "Thee" is the intimate form of "you." So when speaking of God, the familiar case was used. Much scriptural translation is done in that manner. In modern use, the familiar case has fallen away in English and the pronoun "you" is used pretty much universally.

2020-02-10 10:39:31 -0600 answered a question Is there any reason why this is not free ?

It is already free in the Gurbani Media Center app and online at: https://www.sikhnet.com/gurbani/album... It is only the Audible audiobook system that costs.

2020-02-07 16:54:40 -0600 answered a question I want to ask a question about ardaas. Does full ardaas from Prathima bgoti simar ke to Nanak Naam chaddi Kala is necessary every time? Can I just ask something directly in short to guruji? Will it be acceptable?

Yes, you can ask in simple words. Ardas comes from the heart. The reason for the full form of the ardas is for the Sangat to all focus their minds together. The ardasee then becomes the voice of the Sangat. In personal prayer all that is required is devotion and focus. More on how prayer works here.

2020-02-07 16:45:09 -0600 answered a question Are we all controlled by One Organism ?

Yes, that's one way of looking at it. The One is us. We are the One. Our separateness is an illusion.

As in kirtan sohila....

"Thou hast thousands of eyes and Thou hast no eyes. Thou hast thousands of forms and Thou art formless. Thou hast thousands of Lotus Feet and Thou hast no feet at all. Thou hast thousands of noses and Thou hast no nose."

2020-02-07 16:42:38 -0600 answered a question What does this Ancient Egyptian quote mean ?

It simply means that the answers lie within you, not outside of you. Gurbani echos this...

"The human body is a great fortress, with its shops and streets within. The Gurmukh who comes to trade gathers the cargo of the Lord’s Name. He deals in the treasure of the Lord’s Name, the jewels and the diamonds. Those who search for this treasure outside of the body, in other places, are foolish demons. They wander around in the wilderness of doubt, like the deer who searches for the musk in the bushes." (ANG 309)

2020-02-07 16:39:08 -0600 commented question Is Qualia what people are looking for ?

Qualia are subjective human experiences. What is the connection to Gurbani? Do you have a specific bani in mind?

2020-02-07 16:36:13 -0600 answered a question What is the meaning of hukam ?

Hukam is the same as Tao. It is the natural flow of things. When one abandons one's own wishes and desires and flows in the way of the creation one is said to be living in hukam.

2020-02-07 16:34:34 -0600 answered a question What is the actual Bani ?

This quote is not the SGGS, but it is well documented per the SikhiWiki entry

2020-02-07 11:38:57 -0600 answered a question is simran and gurus teaching not enough

Simran and Guru's teaching are enough. But people reach these things through many paths and most Westerners cannot easily become receptive so that the seed of Naam is able to sprout and grow within their hearts. Yoga is a way for one to become open to Naam.

2020-02-07 11:35:20 -0600 answered a question are you from rss

Why are you assuming motive? This is the fallacy of a-priori reasoning, as in: "When did you stop beating your wife?" Your premise is wrong. Who is "you?" and why do you assume motive? No one here is political, nor has any political axe to grind.

2020-02-07 11:31:09 -0600 answered a question What is meant by illusion here ?

It means maya. Clinging and aversion are the polar states of the mind. When the mind becomes balanced and neutral, then one recognizes the ways in which the chit (mind stuff) moves and we can settle in our shuniya (zero point.) This is the state of Sahaj in which the power of the mind to pull focus away from Naam is confronted successfully.

2020-02-07 11:27:00 -0600 answered a question Is this quote on meditation from Krishan true for Sikhism too ?

Yes, this is true. It is easy to be lazy and it is easy to live as a fanatic. It is difficult to live a balanced life. This is the "Middle Way" as the Buddha taught and also the Dharmic Path of the Edge of the Sword as taught by Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

2020-02-07 11:24:35 -0600 answered a question Should we stay away from the company of such people ?

Without judgement, and keeping our hearts open and filled with love, it is natural to discriminate between those we wish to spend time with and those we do not. As we progress on the path of Dharma, we naturally wish to avoid low-minded people and be with those who elevate us. It is a natural process.

2020-02-07 11:21:54 -0600 answered a question Why do people keep spending money on decoration ?

People act according to their understanding. Devotion takes many forms. Our Guru is most radiant, regal, royal, divine and noble.

2020-02-07 11:19:07 -0600 answered a question What is the true nature of oneself ?

It means Ek Ong Kaar. That is our True Identity. Beyond ego. Beyond personality. The root, the core is the One.

2020-02-07 11:16:49 -0600 answered a question Why is the old man still bitter ?

If one has not connected to one's soul then happiness is never found. Youth chases after adventure and then a mate. Mid-life chases after wealth. Old ones become bitter. Without Gyan and Grace, old age becomes miserable.

2020-02-07 11:14:39 -0600 answered a question What is the meaning of kirpan ?

No, it means the opposite: "merciful." The word has two roots: kirpa, meaning "mercy", "grace", "compassion" or "kindness"; and aanaa, meaning "honor", "grace" or "dignity".

2020-02-07 11:09:04 -0600 answered a question Why does everyone want to get rich in life ?

There is no point in hoarding money, as Gurbani points out to us many times. Mostly, people don't know what else to do. If they have not awakened to the true riches, they simply follow their ambition and believe that this magic show is real.

2020-02-07 11:07:00 -0600 answered a question Is life spontaneous ?

It is 85% pre-written and 15% up to us. Here is a video that explains further: Fate and Destiny in Your Life

2020-02-07 11:04:51 -0600 answered a question Is the purpose of Gurbani to stop evil ?

The purpose of Gurbani is to redirect the mind from the finite to the infinite. We take birth to pay our karmic debts.

Can you give and example from Gurbani?

2020-02-07 11:02:00 -0600 answered a question Should a person hide his flaws ?

What is a flaw? We are perfectly as our Creator created us. We act according to our understanding. What is there to hide? To live as a spiritual, conscious person on this earth is to live naked. Open, clear, nothing to hide.

2020-02-07 11:00:13 -0600 answered a question How long does it take to become human again ?

It varies depending on the way the person died and the extent of their karmas.

2020-02-07 10:57:35 -0600 answered a question Why do most people try to appear religious ?

We must all face the trap of ego and deal with it. I have even seen young Singhs dressed in Nihang bana use their pukkha bana to attract and ensnare girls. The only way out is Jap and Simran to constantly remember one's True identity.

2020-02-05 16:17:43 -0600 answered a question why do religious people have no chill?

Religious does not mean spiritual. Fanaticism and dogmatism lead to seeing the world in black and white, right and wrong, etc. Easy to anger is a sign of fanaticism. The marks of a spiritual person are listed clearly in Ashtapadi 8 of Sukhmani Sahib, which begins:

"The God-conscious being is always unattached, as the lotus in the water remains detached. The God-conscious being is always unstained, like the sun, which gives its comfort and warmth to all. The God-conscious being looks upon all alike, like the wind, which blows equally upon the king and the poor beggar. The God-conscious being has a steady patience, like the earth, which is dug up by one, and anointed with sandal paste by another. This is the quality of the God-conscious being: O Nanak, his inherent nature is like a warming fire. || 1 || The God-conscious being is the purest of the pure; filth does not stick to water. The God-conscious being’s mind is enlightened, like the sky above the earth. To the God-conscious being, friend and foe are the same. The God-conscious being has no egotistical pride. The God-conscious being is the highest of the high. Within his own mind, he is the most humble of all. They alone become God-conscious beings, O Nanak, whom God Himself makes so. || 2 || The God-conscious being is the dust of all. The God-conscious being knows the nature of the soul. The God-conscious being shows kindness to all. No evil comes from the God-conscious being. The God-conscious being is always impartial."

2020-01-27 16:07:20 -0600 commented answer How to know what is real ?

One understands only at the time one can understand. As to why people judge... well they do that to make themselves feel better about themselves.

2020-01-27 16:05:07 -0600 answered a question Why can't I just back to a normal life ?

You are you and your experience is yours alone. It is designed for you. When you begin to work on yourself it makes others uneasy. Why? Because everyone wants you to be just like them. But you are not just like anyone else. When you keep up on the Guru's path, your Sadhsangat will appear. You be you. Be kind to all but do not expect understanding. Your friends will change as you change.

2020-01-27 12:39:20 -0600 answered a question What to do , how can someone live in a society ?

Well that's pretty much how everyone is, isn't it? Everyone wants you to be just like them because it makes them more comfortable with the identity and associated behaviors they have adopted. The beauty of it is in not judging anyone, including oneself. On the spiritual path there is no higher or lower. Whether in one of your first human body incarnations or whether you've been around the wheel thousands of times, it makes no difference. We are all in this together. There's nothing to do except see God in all and serve each moment as it needs to be served.

2020-01-27 12:30:53 -0600 answered a question Does Guru Nanak want us to live in isolation ?

One who lives alone in the midst of it all! In that single-minded focus on Naam, each of us lives alone. The lotus flower is attached to the earth by it's long root which is set in the mud while the flower floats serenely on the surface of the water. Guru Nanak Dev Ji is describing a state of mind. In married life we attain that same state of Oneness in relation to Oneness. That is the point of married life (per the Lavan.)

"The lotus flower floats untouched upon the surface of the water, and the duck swims through the stream; with one’s consciousness focused on the Word of the Shabd, one crosses over the terrifying world-ocean. O Nanak, chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord. One who lives alone, as a hermit, enshring the One Lord in his mind, remaining unaffected by hope in the midst of hope, sees and inspires others to see the inaccessible, unfathomable Lord. Nanak is his slave." (Ang 938)

2020-01-27 12:23:42 -0600 answered a question Is Sikhism the only true way ?

There is no "only way." Jaap Taap and Sanjam are universal. Whatever upaya (method) one uses to work on oneself spiritually, one will eventually come to Naam Japa. It is a method, not a religion.

2020-01-27 12:18:39 -0600 commented answer Is Sikhism the only true way ?

Bhatt Kirat was a Sikh Brahmin bard in the court of Guru Arjan. Eight of his hymns are present in Guru Granth Sahib

2020-01-27 12:16:15 -0600 answered a question Is Guruka Singh aware of previous life ?

Past lives don't matter. All that matters are the lessons learned from them. Out of 8.4 million incarnations, 84,000 are human incarnations. Whether one lived as this or that in a previous life matters not in this lifetime. Nothing is random. We create our own incarnation by our actions in previous ones. We do get memories from time to time, but they serve only to remind us of a deep lesson we have learned before.

2020-01-27 12:12:16 -0600 answered a question Why do Sikh Guru Pictures are like this ?

The artist is attempting to show the radiance, the light that emanates from beings of God. This is commonly called a "halo" and is a depiction of the light surrounding the head.

2020-01-27 12:09:07 -0600 answered a question What is true religion ?

We completely misunderstand the word ‘religion.’ It comes from the Latin. ‘ligare’ which means to tie or fasten. It is the same root as the word ligature or ligament. It means to be connected, tied. Doesn’t that remind you of the word ‘yoga’ which means to tie or yoke? To most of us a religion is set of beliefs and practices. But just as yoga is not a set of postures but a state of being – the state of union with the One – so the actual meaning of religion is to experience that state of being connected or tied to the One – to our origin and our Infinity. But the concept of religion has degenerated from the experience of union into a business where middlemen can collect money from people who want to know the truth of their own existence. It is a sham. It is a lie. The entire Piscean Age was built upon this lie: that you are separate from God and that you need someone else to intervene for you with that God who is “up there” so that you can be delivered from sin and redeemed. But 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.
