Feeling so confused! Buddhism Vs. Sikhism

Recommended Posts

Guest YoungSingh

I am 16 and due to my good karams i was born into a good religion and enlightened family. My family is all Amaritdhari and I follow there path but I have been looking online and i find buddhism as my type of way of life.

I like the fact the don't worship god because if there is a god why so much hate and pain in the world, why so many kids suffering in Africa Believing in a god creates so many questions for me so it leaves me confused. I don't know which is the way to go. Although i like Buddhism very much i dont want to disappoint my parents who have full faith in sikhi.

Where we are now at the specific moment is a direct result of our previous karams from this birth and previous births. What we have now is a certain amount of things we can not change and the rest we've been given a clean slate.

We are all beings separated from the one Ik Onkar and the second we leave our mother's wombs we're conditioned in kalyug. It's part of our journey to understand what is around us and meet Waheguru. Without separation, we wouldn't be able to understand Sach/Truth/bliss if we don't first live in falsehood and pain.

Have a listen to this amazing katha.

Young Singh Ji,

Both Buddhism and sikhi are great dharams but you are born a sikh and your family are into sikhi. It would be best if you learnt more about sikhi.. Have you read the sri guru granth sahib jee? Please do not rush; read and try to understand what sikhi is about.

Daas would recommend the videos above about bhai mani singh and he does well talking about great aspects of sikhi. Daas says this with great respect the comparisons he does about other religions is occasionally inaccurate - so please take those comparisons as a pinch of salt (you can search why by using Google and reading books but I do not want to correct him as he is not here to defend himself).

All in all it is a lovely katha and it is in English!

Please forgive daas for any mistakes. Satguru mehar karan

Daas

Singh - Sab te Vada Satgur Nanak Jin Kal Rakhi Meri. Even buddhist call satguru nanak as their lama..!!! The point being is while all dharam are good- Gurmat is shortcut way in every regard..!!!!!!!!!

Hmm What i feel incomplete about Sikhism is the belief in the god. Saying god is almighty and such. I am not letting my ego come in the way and say i am better than god in any way shape or form. I want to feel the god, i have somehow not felt this supreme being yet. I do meditate and i am in a blissful state when i do. I love the feeling and love all the teaching both Buddhism and Sikhism has. But i haven't felt that god yet.

It is your own ego stopping you. Its clear you have not understood Buddhism yet either properly.

Your just going to switch religions and mess your mind up. it is not a game.

You need to give sikhi a long try, a good look at bani. using sikhitothemax.com

have you watched that video posted above yet? whats your views on this?

what do you meditate on? is it saying waheguru?? and isnt that bliss God? think about it.

I am also 16 and live in a Amritdhari family and i have also studied the Buddhist religion bro.... They are trying to reach Enlightenment and they are trying to stop there cycle of birth and death just like a Sikh. We as Sikhs are try to merge back to our source Waheguru that's our aim in life to become one again with the creator. Just like Buddhists they are also trying to get out of there cycle of birth and dead through Enlightenment .... You have misunderstood brother, i studied there religion and i was interested because of the BUDDHA BOY who meditate for 6 years without food and water and I heard his Katha HE ALSO SAID REMEMBER THE SOURCE REMEMBER GOD and live in pure happiness AND LOVE YOUR DHARMA he says. it doesn't matter if your Buddhist or Sikh they both TELL YOU to MEDITATE So why Change??....I realized our Guru is everything man whatever you want to achieve through the guru you will find it :).... GOD IS GREAT <3<3<3<3

Read Gurbani, research history and you will realize what you need to do. :)

I guess so i mean. I do have the same goals as Sikhism which is to end reincarnation and even end suffering. I just cant fully accept a god yet. I still live the premature sikhi life, i go to gurdwara, keep my kesh, dont eat meat ETC...

This is my way of proving a God :) it came to me through meditating so yeah it was a Secret but algood NEED TO HELP A BROTHER OUT BRAHS :p

HERE WE GO:

If I ask You or an Atheist that how was the Universe created they might say The Big Bang. Then I might say what was before The Big Bang?? they might say nothing we don't know... Scientist say That there was ONLY Energy and Matter existing before the big bang that's what scientist say right, but with energy and matter alone you can not get something out of nothing Right?? Then That person might ask ME how do you think the universe became? I say God created it. Then you might ask how did God come? how was he created??

I say He was always there never took BIRTH and will never DIE, never CREATED and will never be DESTROYED (GURBANI tells us this too in Japji Sahib), then you might say PROVE IT.... e=mc2 (energy = matter, matter= energy) if neither can be CREATED NOR DESTROYED than when does it begin to Be ???, when did it ever begin ??? . It never Did he was Always there just like the scientist say that energy and matter was the only thing existing before everything came into existence. Scientist, Atheist, non-believers don't realize this and they never will THEY CAN'T ACCEPT THE TRUTH..... HOPEFULLY I HELPED BROTHER I AM ALSO SIXTEEN DUDE NO JOKE I went through the same thing with the Buddhist religion haha no joke, then i realised that Guru Granth sahib ji there is nothing like it man. It has all the answers in it bro... SOMETIMES TO OPEN YOUR EYES, YOU HAVE TO CLOSE THEM my friend :D :D :D :D... MEDITATE BROTHER FIND GOD and Be happy.... Be PROUD TO BE A SIKH :D... waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh bro :waheguru:

God is EK - the HERE AND NOW - EVERYTHING - the SCIENCE , the IGNORANCE- Everything! EK ONE, CREATOR AND DESTROYER.

Please do research on Sikhi , it seems that you don´t know many things about SIkhi and Buddhism .

    • Very interesting it's just used a lot by others like the sun disk of Egypt etc. Have not seen it myself used in Sikhi before today.
    • This was a common motif/symbol in Sikhi and is still utilised by the Dal Panth. The Surya or Suraj is a reference to the dynasty (Suryavanshi) which Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and therefore the Khalsa Panth belongs to as mentioned in Bachittar Natak and other texts. ਜਾਂ ਦਿਨ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਛਕਤ ਯਹਿ, ਰਹਤ ਨ ਪਿਛਲੀ ਜਾਤਿ । On that day when you take Amrit [Khandey Di Pahul], the commandment is that you do not have a previous Caste. ਜ੍ਯੋਂ ਭ੍ਰਿੰਗੀ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਕੀਟ ਤੈ, ਤ੍ਯੋਂ ਸਿਖ ਹ੍ਵੈ ਗੁਰੁ ਜਾਤਿ ॥੨੪॥ In the same way a Bhringi, which transforms a [low] insect into a beautiful butterfly, a Sikh turns [beautiful] and adopts the Gurus Caste. ਸੂਰਜ ਬੰਸੀ ਦਸਮ ਗੁਰੁ, ਛੱਤ੍ਰੀ ਭਏ ਪ੍ਰਸਿੱਧ । The Tenth Guru is from the Suraj Bans (Surya Vansh Lineage), the famous Kshatriya caste. ਯਾਹੀਂ ਤੇ ਸਭਿ ਖਾਲਸਾ, ਛੱਤ੍ਰੀ ਬਰਣ ਅਬਿੱਧ ॥੨੫॥ In this way all the Khalsa turn into one of Kshastriya. [Naveen Panth Prakash, pg. 1581, Vol. 3]     ^ a Surajmukhi emblem being carried with Guru Sahibs entourage.     ^ The same emblem being used by the Nihangs today     ^ On the hilt of a Sikh Shastar     ^ A battle standard from the Sikh Empire with a Surya   ^ Surya logo   Gurbar Akaal!
    • Interesting there is sun emblem on the shield 
    • right veerji , I meant attachment to worldly affairs , btw which site / app you use for quoting gurbani
