answer brings 10 questions more,..which is amazing how much gems the

SGGS has).

forest - such is

your way of life. ||1||Pause||

Below are answers given by a learnt man...

1. ਹਿਰਚੰਦਉਰੀ ਬਨ ਹਰ ਪਾਤ ਰੇ ਇਹੈ ਤੁਹਾਰੋ ਬੀਤ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

What is the city of Hari-chaundree?<<<<<<

The 'enchanted city' is the CASTLE IN THE AIR. In other words it is an imaginary city. Due to your attachment to Maya, you are attracted to love other things. This makes you nothing more than the imaginary castles that you build in the air due to your attachment to maya, and you become as insignificant as the millions of green leaves in the jungle.

>>>>>2. What happens at the moment of death? I know there is something

about messanger of death. But why does he beat you? Like said in

Kirtan Sohila. ?<<<<<<<

the quote you mean is "jam kaal sahih sir danda hey".

Dr Sant Singh Khalsa has translated 'jam kaal' as 'the messenger of death'. The correct translation as per gurbani grammar is 'spiritual death'. Thus the meaning becomes, those who continue to live in ego, and conduct all their dealings in ego, are suffering spiritual death constantly.

>>>>>3. What is Jivan Mukta?<<<<<<

The word 'mukta' or 'mukti' means liberation/ freedom from bondage. We live in constant bondage of lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego. All our actions are under the influence of these five. Gurbani has referred to them as the five thieves that rob us of our spiritual merits.

In other religions, liberation comes after death. They believe that the body is the bondage that has trapped the soul. Only on death does the soul escapes from the body and would get liberation depending on its karma (eastern religions), or believe in a saviour who will liberate the sould on judgement day (western religions).

Sikhi rejects both. It says that the body itself is not the bondage. The bondage is the submission to the influence of the five thieves. Spiritually evolved persons can transcend the influence of the five thieves, and hence can be liberated from bondage whilst still alive. They are the jivan muktas.

Khands,..the 5... all are as this web site...

Not true at all, one can get liberated in this very lifetime according to those religions. That is why hindus sometimes become sadhus. however, in the jain faith, it is as you say.. but not for hindus or buddhists.

so 33% correct. :)

    • There's been another "short circuit" of electricity being blamed for burnt saroops of SGGS Ji in rajastan. There's been many cases like these over the past few years all over india and most of them get passed off as short circuits of electricity for some reason. Something very dodgy is going on and i reckon the granthi's and gurdwara commitee's are involved somehow covering up something recent incident https://www.sikh24.com/2020/05/25/rajasthan-four-holy-saroops-of-sri-guru-granth-sahib-ji-burnt-due-to-short-circuit/ past incidents https://www.sikh24.com/2014/04/29/guru-granth-sahib-saroops-damaged-in-short-circuit-blaze/ http://singhstation.net/2014/07/sri-guru-granth-sahib-ji-saroop-agan-bhet-in-suspicious-incident-in-batala/ https://sikhsiyasat.net/2015/06/01/four-saroops-of-guru-granth-sahib-burnt-in-fire/ https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/amritsar/3-saroop-of-Guru-Granth-Sahib-destroyed-in-fire/articleshow/53580315.cms https://dailypost.in/news/punjab/fire-break-gurudwara-sahib-gurdaspur/ https://www.tribuneindia.com/news/archive/jalandhar/short-circuit-at-gurdwara-5-copies-of-guru-granth-sahib-burnt-640913 https://www.hindustantimes.com/punjab/short-circuit-at-gurdwara-3-copies-of-guru-granth-sahib-burnt/story-gGThbO645q3NK4h1tMO8xL.html https://www.sikh24.com/2019/09/23/sacrilege-in-rajasthan-holy-saroop-of-sri-guru-granth-sahib-ji-desecrated-near-sri-ganganagar/#.Xs8d7tJ686Y
    • Exactly, I dont want any coalition between Sikhs and any Muslim group. We need to stick up for ourselves and don't need the bad reputation of muslims hanging over us.
    • Yup india is pretty safe at the moment. It can crush the afghan taliban easily if they tried it on hence why they admitted they wont interfere in indian affairs. Modi's india is embolden at the moment and can even take on china and pakistan at the same time if it was a conventional war. If it came down to nukes then no ones gonna win in that only be loosers everywhere. So i think all the worldly powers have abandoned any support to separatists groups knowing theres not much chance of them seceding from a pretty stable and rising hindu nationalist india union. From Sikhs perspective we should keep out of any hinduisation thats going on effecting kashmir or indian muslims because the goal of islam is to convert and wipe non-muslims including sikhs out eventually. Whereas the goal of hindu nationalists isnt really one of wiping Sikhs and Sikhism or Buddhists and buddhism out they are pretty tolerant of dharmic faiths they just want to be top dogs in the native area they been living for past thousands of years.
    • Yes the only way is if an even bigger power helps the militant group but India is not the same nation it was back in the 80s. Nukes change things big time. No country will do this against India. Economically India is doing ok so it isn't going to collapse like the USSR.
    • You know if the present day buddhists were around in afghanistan before they lost it to islamic arab invaders i dont think the jihadis would have stood a chance. The buddhists of today are far more militant and extreme they have a crazy nationalist mindset same with Sinhalese buddhists of sri lanka when they fought with the sri lankan  hindu tamils both were as vicious as each other. This idea that we have of the peaceful buddhist is probably misplaced even their docile monks are quite militant. We just need to look at our own history during khalsa raj when the Sikh army researched ladkh and wanted to take tibet they faced quite strong opposition from the buddhist Tibetan troops. Both sides eventually called a truce and signed a treaty i believe respecting each others boundaries and borders. Which to this day that treaty is used by china to lay claim to various parts of tibet and india as inheritors of that land. ( sources: The Sino-Indian Border Disputes, by Alfred P.
