Question From A Non-Sikh

Recommended Posts

Hi I was wondering what do Sikhs believe about words and the power of words?

Is there anything in Sikhism or your holy book that says that a person's or a Sikh's words have creative/magical/fatalistic power? Like if you say something's going to happen to you or someone, then it will happen?

For example, if you were to say, "I'm not going to pass that exam" or say something you were worried about happening, by you saying it, does it make it happen? Is there anything taught about that in Sikhism?

No, we do not believe in such dramas.

We are taught to keep ALL of our promises, if that's what you mean.

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

Yes, it is one of the ridhi-sidhis that follow Gursikhs around as they progress in their spirituality - Vaak Sidhi. This is not a Sikhi-exclusive - Hindus, yogis knew of this as well. It is described as a result of pursuing the path of truth - one becomes the embodiment of truth, so much so that the universe becomes bound to the words of that individual and whatever he/she says, the cosmos will bend to his/her word to make it true.

It is not a goal or a desired outcome - only the merging with the Almighty is the true goal. However, this, and many other such powers are at the beckoning of Gursikhs, and Vaak Sidhi occurs naturally to Gursikhs who have progressed.

You can adopt two perceptions on it. One is you say it and believe it which is most likely a psychological effect, otherwise you can take what might be called a spiritual perception i.e. one has become so attuned with the divine frequency that in correlation with the supreme being what you say does happen, but again there are different elements orbiting that as well.

    • hey at least you will have peace at Daddi's , and have someone who is likeminded, Waheguru ji is sending you to sangat.
    • check the thread i posted on about pro-islam sikh's they need to be aware of the agenda of the muslim extremists who target low IQ or impressionable/ vulnerable non-muslims for conversion in order to further their agenda.
    • All i can say is thank God for Sikhi lol But I'd say each to their own if literalist hindu's wonna indulge in that crazy stuff good luck to them same with literalist muslims do your thing guys but don't involve us lot to be involved in your mad rituals and group thinking haha
    • So i came across this documentary type video on youtube quite interesting information I hadn't know before.  
    • reminds me of what sikhs faced in 1984 delhi but on a very very very small scale. in 1984 Sikhs faced a huge genocide that the world turned its eyes away from and still no community has helped to get justice the indian muslims in delhi at the time were taking part in the mass murdered of innocent sikh civilians. However Its unfortunate that a masjid was targeted by the hindu mobs recently. No place of worship should be targeted nor any innocents. The muslims and hindus have historical beef and their ideologies teach them something very different to Sikhi. So as for the hindu/muslim riots well it was expected seeing how it was all going....... the indian muslims are protesting and agitating for nothing and they actually in es sense protesting against the rights of foreign born hindu,sikh,christian and buddhist minorities living in india that have been persecuted by the muslim majority so they had fled to india for safety from Islamic persecution. The act that India passed was to ensure these non-muslim minorities were given a safe haven within india. Muslims have 50 countries to their name if anyone feels persecuted in any country they can freely seek refugee in that huge number of muslim countries. The Sikh position should be that we stay out of this mess we have some few low IQ sikh brothers joining the protests to show their leftist creditianals not realising that these muslims never stood with sikhs when sikhs protested against injustices in 1980s. Instead the indian muslims actually were the majority of congress mobs and joined in with bajrang dal to murdered and rape sikh civilians with over 5000 dead within 3 days. Lets not forget this and lets remind our low IQ sikh brothers of the facts not to forget what haappened in 1947 for sikhs having to come to india cos of the muslim demand to split punjab up on basis of islamic homeland seperate from non-muslims.
