If you are reborn as a human, how can you repent and rectify the mistakes you made in your past lives if you can't even remember what they are?

I don't think Sikhism is about this guilt trip mentality. All Sikhism says is try and live the best way you can in this life!

Page 66 Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੩ ॥

सिरीरागु महला ३ ॥

sireeraag mehlaa 3.

Siree Raag, Third Mehl:

ਪੰਖੀ ਬਿਰਖਿ ਸੁਹਾਵੜਾ ਸਚੁ ਚੁਗੈ ਗੁਰ ਭਾਇ ॥

पंखी बिरखि सुहावड़ा सचु चुगै गुर भाइ ॥

pankhee birakh suhaavrhaa sach chugai gur bhaa-ay.

The soul-bird in the beautiful tree of the body pecks at Truth, with love for the Guru.

ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਪੀਵੈ ਸਹਜਿ ਰਹੈ ਉਡੈ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਜਾਇ ॥

हरि रसु पीवै सहजि रहै उडै न आवै जाइ ॥

har ras peevai sahj rahai udai na aavai jaa-ay.

She drinks in the Sublime Essence of the Lord, and abides in intuitive ease; she does not fly around coming and going.

ਨਿਜ ਘਰਿ ਵਾਸਾ ਪਾਇਆ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮਿ ਸਮਾਇ ॥੧॥

निज घरि वासा पाइआ हरि हरि नामि समाइ ॥१॥

nij ghar vaasaa paa-i-aa har har naam samaa-ay. ||1||

She obtains her home within her own heart; she is absorbed into the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. ||1||

ਮਨ ਰੇ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਕਾਰ ਕਮਾਇ ॥

मन रे गुर की कार कमाइ ॥

man ray gur kee kaar kamaa-ay.

O mind, work to serve the Guru.

ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਭਾਣੈ ਜੇ ਚਲਹਿ ਤਾ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਰਾਚਹਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

गुर कै भाणै जे चलहि ता अनदिनु राचहि हरि नाइ ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥

gur kai bhaanai jay chaleh taa an-din raacheh har naa-ay. ||1|| rahaa-o.

If you walk in harmony with the Guru's Will, you shall remain immersed in the Lord's Name, night and day. ||1||Pause||

ਪੰਖੀ ਬਿਰਖ ਸੁਹਾਵੜੇ ਊਡਹਿ ਚਹੁ ਦਿਸਿ ਜਾਹਿ ॥

पंखी बिरख सुहावड़े ऊडहि चहु दिसि जाहि ॥

pankhee birakh suhaavrhay oodeh chahu dis jaahi.

The birds in the beautiful trees fly around in all four directions.

ਜੇਤਾ ਊਡਹਿ ਦੁਖ ਘਣੇ ਨਿਤ ਦਾਝਹਿ ਤੈ ਬਿਲਲਾਹਿ ॥

जेता ऊडहि दुख घणे नित दाझहि तै बिललाहि ॥

jaytaa oodeh dukh ghanay nit daajheh tai billaahi.

The more they fly around, the more they suffer; they burn and cry out in pain.

ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਮਹਲੁ ਨ ਜਾਪਈ ਨਾ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਫਲ ਪਾਹਿ ॥੨॥

बिनु गुर महलु न जापई ना अम्रित फल पाहि ॥२॥

bin gur mahal na jaap-ee naa amrit fal paahi. ||2||

Without the Guru, they do not find the Mansion of the Lord's Presence, and they do not obtain the Ambrosial Fruit. ||2||

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਹਰੀਆਵਲਾ ਸਾਚੈ ਸਹਜਿ ਸੁਭਾਇ ॥

गुरमुखि ब्रहमु हरीआवला साचै सहजि सुभाइ ॥

gurmukh barahm haree-aavlaa saachai sahj subhaa-ay.

The Gurmukh is like God's tree, always green, blessed with the Sublime Love of the True One, with intuitive peace and poise.

ਸਾਖਾ ਤੀਨਿ ਨਿਵਾਰੀਆ ਏਕ ਸਬਦਿ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥

साखा तीनि निवारीआ एक सबदि लिव लाइ ॥

saakhaa teen nivaaree-aa ayk sabad liv laa-ay.

He cuts off the three branches of the three qualities, and embraces love for the One Word of the Shabad.

ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਫਲੁ ਹਰਿ ਏਕੁ ਹੈ ਆਪੇ ਦੇਇ ਖਵਾਇ ॥੩॥

अम्रित फलु हरि एकु है आपे देइ खवाइ ॥३॥

amrit fal har ayk hai aapay day-ay khavaa-ay. ||3||

The Lord alone is the Ambrosial Fruit; He Himself gives it to us to eat. ||3||

ਮਨਮੁਖ ਊਭੇ ਸੁਕਿ ਗਏ ਨਾ ਫਲੁ ਤਿੰਨਾ ਛਾਉ ॥

मनमुख ऊभे सुकि गए ना फलु तिंना छाउ ॥

manmukh oobhay suk ga-ay naa fal tinnaa chhaa-o.

The self-willed manmukhs stand there and dry up; they do not bear any fruit, and they do not provide any shade.

ਤਿੰਨਾ ਪਾਸਿ ਨ ਬੈਸੀਐ ਓਨਾ ਘਰੁ ਨ ਗਿਰਾਉ ॥

तिंना पासि न बैसीऐ ओना घरु न गिराउ ॥

tinnaa paas na baisee-ai onaa ghar na giraa-o.

Don't even bother to sit near them-they have no home or village.

ਕਟੀਅਹਿ ਤੈ ਨਿਤ ਜਾਲੀਅਹਿ ਓਨਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਨ ਨਾਉ ॥੪॥

कटीअहि तै नित जालीअहि ओना सबदु न नाउ ॥४॥

katee-ah tai nit jaalee-ah onaa sabad na naa-o. ||4||

They are cut down and burnt each day; they have neither the Shabad, nor the Lord's Name. ||4||

ਹੁਕਮੇ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਵਣੇ ਪਇਐ ਕਿਰਤਿ ਫਿਰਾਉ ॥

हुकमे करम कमावणे पइऐ किरति फिराउ ॥

hukmay karam kamaavnay pa-i-ai kirat firaa-o.

According to the Lord's Command, people perform their actions; they wander around, driven by the karma of their past actions.

ਹੁਕਮੇ ਦਰਸਨੁ ਦੇਖਣਾ ਜਹ ਭੇਜਹਿ ਤਹ ਜਾਉ ॥

हुकमे दरसनु देखणा जह भेजहि तह जाउ ॥

hukmay darsan daykh-naa jah bhayjeh tah jaa-o.

By the Lord's Command, they behold the Blessed Vision of His Darshan. Wherever He sends them, there they go.

ਹੁਕਮੇ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਮਨਿ ਵਸੈ ਹੁਕਮੇ ਸਚਿ ਸਮਾਉ ॥੫॥

हुकमे हरि हरि मनि वसै हुकमे सचि समाउ ॥५॥

hukmay har har man vasai hukmay sach samaa-o. ||5||

By His Command, the Lord, Har, Har, abides within our minds; by His Command we merge in Truth. ||5||

ਹੁਕਮੁ ਨ ਜਾਣਹਿ ਬਪੁੜੇ ਭੂਲੇ ਫਿਰਹਿ ਗਵਾਰ ॥

हुकमु न जाणहि बपुड़े भूले फिरहि गवार ॥

hukam na jaaneh bapurhay bhoolay fireh gavaar.

The wretched fools do not know the Lord's Will; they wander around making mistakes.

ਮਨਹਠਿ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਵਦੇ ਨਿਤ ਨਿਤ ਹੋਹਿ ਖੁਆਰੁ ॥

मनहठि करम कमावदे नित नित होहि खुआरु ॥

manhath karam kamaavday nit nit hohi khu-aar.

They go about their business stubborn-mindedly; they are disgraced forever and ever.

ਅੰਤਰਿ ਸਾਂਤਿ ਨ ਆਵਈ ਨਾ ਸਚਿ ਲਗੈ ਪਿਆਰੁ ॥੬॥

अंतरि सांति न आवई ना सचि लगै पिआरु ॥६॥

antar saaNt na aavee naa sach lagai pi-aar. ||6||

Inner peace does not come to them; they do not embrace love for the True Lord. ||6||

ਗੁਰਮੁਖੀਆ ਮੁਹ ਸੋਹਣੇ ਗੁਰ ਕੈ ਹੇਤਿ ਪਿਆਰਿ ॥

गुरमुखीआ मुह सोहणे गुर कै हेति पिआरि ॥

gurmukhee-aa muh sohnay gur kai hayt pi-aar.

Beautiful are the faces of the Gurmukhs, who bear love and affection for the Guru.

ਸਚੀ ਭਗਤੀ ਸਚਿ ਰਤੇ ਦਰਿ ਸਚੈ ਸਚਿਆਰ ॥

सची भगती सचि रते दरि सचै सचिआर ॥

sachee bhagtee sach ratay dar sachai sachiaar.

Through true devotional worship, they are attuned to Truth; at the True Door, they are found to be true.

ਆਏ ਸੇ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ਹੈ ਸਭ ਕੁਲ ਕਾ ਕਰਹਿ ਉਧਾਰੁ ॥੭॥

आए से परवाणु है सभ कुल का करहि उधारु ॥७॥

aa-ay say parvaan hai sabh kul kaa karahi uDhaar. ||7||

Blessed is their coming into being; they redeem all their ancestors. ||7||

ਸਭ ਨਦਰੀ ਕਰਮ ਕਮਾਵਦੇ ਨਦਰੀ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥

सभ नदरी करम कमावदे नदरी बाहरि न कोइ ॥

sabh nadree karam kamaavday nadree baahar na ko-ay.

All do their deeds under the Lord's Glance of Grace; no one is beyond His Vision.

ਜੈਸੀ ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਦੇਖੈ ਸਚਾ ਤੈਸਾ ਹੀ ਕੋ ਹੋਇ ॥

जैसी नदरि करि देखै सचा तैसा ही को होइ ॥

jaisee nadar kar daykhai sachaa taisaa hee ko ho-ay.

According to the Glance of Grace with which the True Lord beholds us, so do we become.

ਨਾਨਕ ਨਾਮਿ ਵਡਾਈਆ ਕਰਮਿ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਹੋਇ ॥੮॥੩॥੨੦॥

नानक नामि वडाईआ करमि परापति होइ ॥८॥३॥२०॥

naanak naam vadaa-ee-aa karam paraapat ho-ay. ||8||3||20||

O Nanak, the Glorious Greatness of the Naam, the Name of the Lord, is received only by His Mercy. ||8||3||20||

I dont think its the matter of what you did in youre PAST but what you are yet to do. You cant remeber yer past karms because they might be so horrible you would go insane. This is why god doesnt let us remeber. Just try to be the best you can and pray to god that your past sins be forgiven.

Hope that helps yu dooode blush.gif

Yeah I understand what you are saying. Perhaps it's a gift from God that we cannot remember past lives, otherwise it would be confusing to know your relations now were completely something different before, that would be a bit mad yeah.

Thanks

If you are reborn as a human, how can you repent and rectify the mistakes you made in your past lives if you can't even remember what they are?

You anull sins of your past lives by doing good deeds{sharing, seva etc.}

Dont worry about your past because youve done things good enough to be in Human form this time so use your time wisely in this life and do only good deeds.

"Dont do that of which you will repent in the end."-Dont do it if you know its wrong because mere repenting sometimes isnt enough.

There are 3 types of karma : 1) The first type are the karmas we done in our last life which we cannot change we have to pay for these no matter what. 2) The second type is karmas we done in our many past lives which are called our store karma, for e.g. if u killed 1000 chickens u might pay for about 100 chickens in ur next life but the rest of the burden gets carried on ur future lives after that. 3) The third type is the karmas we do in this life which will determin our future. I know we can't remember what we did in our last life but we should try to be carefull what we do in this life.

all the above posts are very good....and yes even though guru ji has given us this human birth again to make up for our sins..that duzint mean that only the sins we did in our past life must be fixed....HE's given us a brand new jeevan and we must use it to do good things in life and sacrifice this entire jeevan serving guru ji.....and making guru ji happy......we should keep our life pure and and keep doin seva/simran.....if we do this non-stop das how we will make up for those sins we've done before.....and well if u do want to know ur past.....then it has happened to others before....but in order to do so you must do simran/bhagti and ur mind must alwaiz be wid waheguru.....its rare but its happened....LOLz....anywayz...hope this helped ji...bhul chuk muaf
