I am a new amritdhari and previously I have this idea embedded in my head that if I do something bad, (not bujjer kurehit) that i will have a bad consequence of my actions... like I was involved in a accident and I was thinking this maybe because of my own actions. (this is just one example).

Does this concept exist in sikhi? What happens when we commit paap's? I feel like i am constantly thinking in my head, if I do this, then this might happen? Or that if I do this, it might be bad luck? Is this just superstition?

Please clarify

Paap= you reap what you sow, it is just the way the Universe works. Ever heard of the saying "what goes around, comes around"? It is essentially that, if you disrespect others, don't expect others to respect you, if you spend all your time drinking in clubs and having one-night stands, don't expect to enter a meaningful relationship.

Paap and "sin" are not the same thing, sin is an Abrahamic term and has no basis in Sikhi. The Creator is not going to curse you when you do something "bad", you are punishing yourself. "Bad luck" etc... is all superstitious nonsense that our Gurus rejected.

Just read something interesting -

"We reap what we sow" but we forget that, we reap in a Different Season than we sow !

In addition we reap More Than we sow.

When we put seeds in the ground we get much more in return from the plant.

Nothing can be done to change our past but Much can be done to change our Future.

Thanks for this reply. Just one more question.. if in Sikhi god doesnt punish us with "bad luck" for "sins" then how come we say the same god we can pray to get miracles/needs?

Really "Paap= you reap what you sow, it is just the way the Universe works."

I don't agree with this, so you are telling me all the innocents that die in war torn countries deserve it. How about Tony Blair (PM of Britain and leader of the Labour party once) starts a war with Iraq and has never been punished for his crimes but has become completely the opposite, most successful speaker for large corporation events.
