  1. Is time relative in Sikhi? Are souls born in different yugs/civilizations according to their karma? I would think so but never really thought about it...
  2. I remember a sakhi which I heard on those dharmic cassette tapes from back then. This is from around 2001/2002. So I was a kid and dnt remember all of it. I think it was set around the time of either Guru Ram Das ji or Guru Arjan Dev Ji. It was about an old man who couldn't walk or function much and he would lay on the manjha all day, coughing. He would constantly tell his son and daughter in-law to help him and do this for him and do that for him e.g. His son and daughter in-law got fed up of him and started deciding what to do with him. The son then decided to throw him into a r
  3. I'm having trouble on what to do in situations where others people's stupidity is costing them a lot, and if i let it happen im gaining a lot (at little loss to them), but if i stop it (which i kind of feel is the right thing to do), i gain nothing at then no loss to them. When people be idotic, for example if i buy something and the guy says itll be here sunday (and today is friday night and they dont deliver on a sunday), and i then say ok but if its not here by sunday then unfortunately it will be too late and i cant pay you for it (this has cost them shipping costs remember but
  4. Iv heard that we get a chance to be in human life with lots of good karma, but before this we must of been in the form of an animal then, does that mean we did good deeds in the animal form in order to be a human in this life? How does a animal do good deeds? Or is it good karma from a previous human life from another yug? I don't understand how it works Thanks
  5. I found this katha online and it is on karam and it goes in depth on the different types of karam and how it affects us and what we should be doing. Really recommend it ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖ਼ਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਿਹ
  6. As per the vedantists , there're three different types of karams : 1) Prarabdha karam This are the past karam because of which we got the current configuration in this earthly plane. These are the karams that have fruited . There is no way to extinguish the effects of these karams , except by bearing them , whether good or bad. It's like an arrow shot from the archer's bow cannot come back. It's destined to hit. Its too late now to undo the effect of the arrow. It only can be bore now. Prarabdha karam makes up a person's destiny. 2) Sanchit karam These are accumul
  7. ਜੇ ਸਾਰੀ ਖੇੜ ਕਰਮਾ ਦੀ ਹੈ , ਤੇ ਫੇਰ ਰਹਿਮਤ ਕਿਥੇ ? Its an established axiom in indian faiths (that includes sikhism) that whatever we sow, we shall reap. Accordingly , good karams fetches happiness , bad karams fetches suffering. This raises some particularly interesting question, especially when related to sikhism. Sikhism unlike other indian religions stress on rehmat of god , more than individual action. In this regard , its more similar in thought to sufi kalaam. Sikh gurus have even stressed to an extent that one cannot do anything , god is "kartaa" of everything. So , if effect

    Why is Death Hard to Accept?

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Is there a reason why death is something hard for many to accept, even when it will happen to everyone? Why do people forget it? Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  9. It's a well known fact that a correct diet ensures longevity, long life and resolves health issues. Youtube "Okinawa long life" and "Japan long life" for evidence. Over there since no pollution and junk food exists people aged 80 to 105 live lives like they're no more than 40. Even Gurbaani states "My appetite is simple daana paani" (simple cooked food like rice, steamed saabjia and water) or nature grown food. However, it's interesting to note that education fails to teach us of healthy living and benefits of it like after aged 80 the effects.The consumption rate of unhealthy food is hi

    Dealing with a horrible past

    Wjkk wjkf about 4 years ago I realised the reason behind my habit of getting into relationships, letting men take advantage of me and cheating to get attention. I didn't get the love from my cousins/relatives and mom. The only person who stood by was my dad and my relatives never cared about me, their behaviour towards me just proved that they believed me to be the "extra" child since I was a daughter. I am currently 22, with Guru ji's kirpa I took choola at 9, amrit 15. Somehow guru ji has been waking me during amrit vela since 14, but I couldn't those habits. It sometimes comes as
  11. From my posts here you probably know I struggled (and still do) with my orientation which puts me at odds with social orders and prevents me from living a normal life (marriage, kids,..) , something I always wanted to do. However, I also feel apprehensive of where I am now and the path I pick from here on, because whichever path I chose will land me at that destination. Not only I feel fearful but regretful as well. I am right now 27 and it will be another 11 months before I turn 28. My parents every other day keep insisting I get married . I told them I am gay 2 yrs back , I
  12. How does karma effect the pain we will go through in our lifetimes? If one experiences a lot of physical pain and emotional pain in their lives does that mean that they have a lot of bad karma?

    Need Help With My Thinking!

    SSA everybody! I just have 1 question..whenever I want to do something good the first thing that pops in my mind is that I'm doing this for good karma! Is that any way to go about life and do u think I should change the way I think? Am I being selfish even if I'm doing something good for someone else? Thanks in advance ☺
  14. Dear friends, Firstly, I do feel blessed that we have been gifted with a son with autism. But it is difficult. He is a happy boy and very loving - but cannot speak, has independence issues, cognitive disabilities and social challenges. I'll be honest - we do worry about his future and his complex care does add stress to our lives. Our lives are not following the "normal" path.. whatever "normal" is. But I stay steadfast and am a very positive person at the core. I'm starting to rediscover Sikhi and the power of Naam. It does help me stay centred and on course. But I do question, why us? Why
  15. WJKK WJKF My wife and I were discussing this the other day and would like the Sangats views please. If a parent does bad Karma or owes someone money and dies still owing that money for example, would that Karam move to the child? I have heard that this will move to the child, but then I though of simple logic of its not the childs karma its the parents, and for example if you commit a murder, you go to jail not your child. This make sense? Phul Chuff Maff
  16. I'm confused, someone said people have no free will. Do we have free will? Or does God do everything? So do we make a decision to Jap Naam, or does waheguru make certain people jap naam? If wahguru does make everything happen then why do we get good or bad karam? We did not choose to do something, waheguru made us do it. So why are we rewarded or punished for that deed? Or did that guy get it completely wrong?
  17. WJKK WJKF I have had a question arise and would like to share with the Sadh Sangat. When we see someone with high Avasta, in good Sangat, following Sikhi, we say they must have done good Karams in a previous life. The same if someone has bad luck or things aren't going from them in this life we say the opposite. So where does this leave the materialistically wealthy but not spiritual? An example is a movie/ sports star. On the face you see that they are wealthy can buy anything they want, physically attractive, friends, fame etc, but not on a spiritual path. Would you say that they had g
