So you say. I would say punjabi/indian folk history and culture believes magical powers. Part and parcel of indian religious thought is the idea of magical old men getting special powers from their religious practices... hence the need for commoners to respect, feed, donate to them. Lots of the western yogis get them over here in the states as well, right before they get caught sleeping with half of their devotees. A real magic power would be getting a job, feeding the poor, and contributing to society instead of sitting around repeating mantras all day long.

Other people say the same thing about black magic, speaking in tongues, levitation during exorcisms, bigfoot.... but these things can never really seem to be proven. Maybe some of these sants can cure cancer, cure sterility...I guess you can never prove that they cant. Maybe they can give someone an evil eye.... better watch out just in case! Most people know a friend, or have "seen it" but ask someone to show you and they can't. Believing in hocus pocus is not only bad for you its bad for society.

I have my beliefs or rather 'knowledge', I'm entitled to it. Its not good to belittle others beliefs by calling it 'hocus pocus'. It's good to have an open mind. Anyway believe what you will. Doesn't really affect me. You'll realise the truth one day, everyone will.

Ps: And plus its not just an 'Indian' thing as you put it. Numerous cases exist of Medieval Christian Saints exhibiting powers of levitation, mind reading etc.

Again, anyone reading this, don't think I am promoting powers. I am not. I am just saying they are there in response to sceptical responses.

I would give you quotes from guru granth sahib that refer and talk about spiritual powers, demons, other entities etc. But i am not sure if you have already studied guru granth sahib or not?

The more your spiritual level is awakened, you become more present in the sense things become more clear. What we have now is false but we don't believe it because we're limited to your spiritual level at this time to thinking our body is our body when reality is the deathless soul we have is our trueself. To come to this realization takes a lot of dicipline and meditation (takes life times to come to this realization, everything happens in our own pace, some are more ready to accept the will of guru sahib then others but guru sahib allows us take the time it needs for us to be ready for him)

This is why guru sahib's bani is the most powerful, came straight from sachkand, created great warriors and saints (baba deep singh, bhai mani singh etc.).

Black magic, powers, are all real but above all this is the love of guru sahib which should matter the most.

This is key and a very good observation. With Gurbani nothing is impossible, and as trite and idealistic as that may sound to some, our focus - as Sikhs - first and foremost must be to recite, understand and live Gurbani.

First of all we can't make everyone happy or you can say that we can't prove our things to everyone and there is no need for that. Its upto to the beleiver to beleive.

Even When Guru Nanak dev ji came on earth there were many who didn't accept them as GOD/AVATAR and Guru ji never tried to convinced them and asked people to follow them. People used their mind and then experinced that what they are saying is true and then they follow. I beleive that you have not read Sri Guru granth Sahib.Guru sahib has given many example that

Ghosts /spirits/supernatural powers/ridhis/sidhis/Hell/Heaven/Life after Death do exists. In this forum everyone beleives that what ever is written in SGGGS is correct. SO if someone say that Ghosts don't exist then we can give the reference of Panki "Kai kot Bhoot pret sukar mirgach" and he agrees with that. Although he has not practically seen it but they know that they are there. then if some forum member have experineced it he can give his reference. Now thats upto you to beleive or not and you have full right for that.You either belive or you not. Its upto you. Even if someone make you beleive with some real thing and you also share in this forum , then will be many more Wales85 like you and they repeat the same story.

So bottom line for sikh is , believe with 100% faith on what is written in SGGGS but you can question on individual experiences. Like Science says that Air exists and many can argue that i have not seen it. SOme can say that they have experienced it. so you know what i want to say

Really? It is worrying that some people recite Gurbani only to obtain these "powers". Surely that means Gurbani is being misused in some way?

Are these abilities meant to be kept private? In that case then why are people endowed with these abilities if by using them they are going against Sikhi?

"Gurbani being misued"

i think "Gurbani" and "misued" can't fit together. Guru sahib has said that We should do simran to attain GOD but we can also recite Gurbani to get our worldly desired fulfilled. If i want to win the wrestling competetion then i can recite Gurbani to make my Body etc. Does that mean that i am going aganist sikhi. If after winning wrestling competetion i started killing people with my muscle power , now , does that mean that its Gurbani's fault that it hellped me build very strong muscles??

There are always two faces of same thing. You can either use it good way or bad way. you can cut vegetable with Knife and you can also kill man with knife.

"Icsha purak sarb sukh datha har"

It means what evr you want from Guru Sahib , you will get it. Be is powers or anything else.

The reason for rishis/sidhis was that in Hindi Rigveda there are many mantras which can provide Ridhis/sidhis so if some sikh wants it then people were using that mantras . So Guru sahib told that Even if you want only ridshis/sidhis you can also get from Gurbani as well.

But there is one thing if you attain sidhi Via Hindu Mantra then you can do anything good or bad. If you attain sidhi via Gurbani then you will not be able to do bad like suppose i have sidhi where i can predict future events.

In case i get it from HIndu mantras then i can open a shop and earn money. But i get it from Gurbani then if i start to make money then either i will lose it or it won't work.

I had done sidhis via Hindu mantra as well as gurbani. so i know the difference.

The only problem is that once you get them you EGO rises and you start feeling special. Haume comes and you start come down spiritually. Like Me.

Thats the reason Guru Shaib told us not to go this way. if someone really want that then He don't need to Go to Tantrik etc. He can get it in gUrbani as well.

i was coming back from India, i arrived at the Amitsar airpoprt on my own. I was 4 hours early. I did nitnem then and then when we got onto my flight back to the UK. I earler went to Darbar Sahib and asked for safe return to UK. I had nothing to eat 36 hours prior arriving and ate nothing therefater.

I read all of Sundar Gutka about 8 times. I had an amazing avastha for there is no words to describe. My mind and its ego and thoughts were replaced with immense peace which lasted for quite a long while. Everyone was looking at me with amazement. I cant describe the immense peaceful state of mind. It was like my mind was being absorbed into something full of super powerfullness and yet it was peaceful aswell as a feeling if immense shakti. people tried to talk to me but i just ignored them. I didnt even look at them i was completely absorbed in bliss. When i arrived at Birmingham Airport i wished my family never came to collect me and that i could go to a forrest and remain in sehaj. I have learnt this was opening of the dasam dwar

    • Is it the end of SGPC? I mean there’s one in Punjab, one in Haryana and Delhi.  Recently Hazur Sahib removed 2 members of it. It was a British creation in the 1920s.
    • In the uk we have Ramgharia gurdwaras, in some places ther are called Ramgharia sabha! However, I think most gurdwaras and even sikhs calling themselves "Ramgharia" are scamming us as they have weak or no connections to Ramgharia misl, and are just using the fact that they are tarkhans they can use the Ramgharia term because Jassa Singh Ramgharia was from tarkhan background. Please prove me wrong!   Also, I have been observing gurdwaras since I was young. I remember when I was a child in the 80s and 90s, Singh Sabha gurdwaras still allowed shoes and langar was eaten on tables, in the times when the adults used to work all the time, doing double shifts etc. However in the 2000s we can see a change in Singh Sabha gurdwaras as well as some other gurdwaras, where shoes are no longer allowed, and we have a lot of space to sit on the floor and do pangat in langar.  It's really strange to see so many tables in gurdwaras after seeing langar done exclusivily on the floor gurdwaras in Panjab and India. Just look at Harimandir Sahib, 4 takht, and many other gurdwaras back home. Now, across London, Slough and Berkshire, midlands, I have noticed Ramgharia gurdwaras allow shoes into langar and have little or no accommodation for sitting on the floor. It is bizarre to see in Ramgharia gurdwaras, the sangat coming from doing sangat or matha tek in divan hall, and then putting on their shoes to go to langar. Like we are going to a restaurant or something! What is this, is it some kind of kenya/east africa sikh colonial army era tradition to keep doing this, even after the other gurdwaras have moved back to giving satkar and respect for langar maryada? Then we come to the scam, in the Ramgharia gurdwaras, there seems to be more links to East Africa sikhs than Ramgharia misl. There are more trim Singhs with Kenya paghs on Ramgharia gurdwara committees compared to more sabat surat Singhs on Singh sabha committees, from my observations in these England regions. You will find more kenya pagh and trim or fixo darhi, than bana walay Singh in these gurdwaras, again the Ramgharia label is scamming us, as Ramgharia is used for sabat soorat Singhs from the misl, especially those tuned to bana (and open beard is part of bana). Also, I have listened to Rehraas Sahib in some Ramgharia gurdwaras, and they read the disfigured bhasauria SGPC style of Chaupai Sahib (such as the way performed at Harimandir Sahib the past 100 years), skipping arril and the last lines of kabyo baach benti, which makes them more like a Singh Sabha gurdwara and far removed from being Ramgharia due to having similar disrespect towarda bani as Singh sabha gurdwaras, as Ramgharia misl would respect dasam bani and read the full kabyo baach benti. So the langar thing is bizarre, and now I think of it it's disrespectful. And the use of Ramgharia sikhs and Ramgharia gurdwaras term is a scam as they are anything but, as there is so much disrespect to be associated with the practices of Ramgharia misl! Even the fact they celebrate Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia's birthday doesn't allow them any forgiveness or courtesy! This goes double for the Slough Ramgharia Singh Sabha, as they have a statue of Jassa Singh Ramgharia, and yet are their actions related to actual Ramgharia? Yeh, let's not fall for the scam! and sikhs that are sangat in those gurdwaras, really need to step up and get in those committees and change things for chardi kala! We need to see more chardikala Singhs running things, not trim Singhs and fixo Singhs!
    • Japji Sahib can be done anytime within 24 hours, but ideal time is before breakfast.  Ardaas after is optional but if you can make it necessary will be ideal. When it comes to paat more the merrier.  Meat / alc should be in separate rooms to Gutke Sahibs. It is possible no matter how small the house. WAIT! Isn't all food in the kitchen??  You can still do paat after meat n alc. Nothing wrong there... just wash yer hands! (Obviously).
