Sikhism And Life On Other Planets

Recommended Posts

https://www.rt.com/viral/341617-new-planets-discovered-life/ Don't let the title to mislead you, but they found some 3 new Earth-sized planets which makes me curious and both excited as it feels like we are closer and closer to find life. What's Sikhism's view on life or "Aliens", I know that this is very stupid, but I am just curious because I believe that the Guru Granth mentioned about devotees on other planets.

Life on other planets exists in spirit form. Maya is just an illusion. There is life on this planet which we can't see with our eyes but we can with our inner eye. What we see is just an illusion, sort of like a computer program. Recent discoveries confirm this. We also turn into spirit form after death. That is when we meet the jam dhoots and dharam raaj. Self realisation by constant simran awakens the mind so that we have visions and believe in the unseen.Yes its hard work getting to that stage. However that is why we have Sri Guru Granth Sahib to take guidance from.
There is so much out there that baffles the mind. This life has immense power and this life can decide to stay hidden or manifest itself in material form to either guide us or lead us astray. This depends on whether it is evil or good.

It is only life on earth which requires water and food. Hence we have been provided by these by God. These commodities are not present on other planets. We have been there too possibly in some past life. Due to our karams or choice we have chosen or been sent to earth in human form. Performing bhagti will enable us to earn our own sustenance which we will eat in order to survive on other planets.

There is a line in Gurbani which says if you dont plant the seed of naam here, what will you eat in the future? It is Naam dhi kamayi which we have come to get here so that we may be able to feed on it and survive in the future.

ਪਾਤਾਲ ਲਖ ਆਗਾਸਾ ਆਗਾਸ ॥

पाताला पाताल लख आगासा आगास ॥

Pāṯālā pāṯāl lakẖ āgāsā āgās.

There are nether worlds beyond the nether worlds and lacs of skies over skies.

ਓੜਕ ਓੜਕ ਭਾਲਿ ਥਕੇ ਵੇਦ ਕਹਨਿ ਇਕ ਵਾਤ ॥

ओड़क ओड़क भालि थके वेद कहनि इक वात ॥

Oṛak oṛak bẖāl thake veḏ kahan ik vāṯ.

The scriptures say one thing: searching for God's limits and bounds, (without success) people have grown weary.

ਸਹਸ ਅਠਾਰਹ ਕਹਨਿ ਕਤੇਬਾ ਅਸੁਲੂ ਇਕੁ ਧਾਤੁ ॥

सहस अठारह कहनि कतेबा असुलू इकु धातु ॥

Sahas aṯẖārah kahan kaṯebā asulū ik ḏẖāṯ.

The Semitic scriptures say that there are eighteen thousand worlds, but in reality there is only one essence; that the Lord is limitless.

ਲੇਖਾ ਹੋਇ ਤ ਲਿਖੀਐ ਲੇਖੈ ਹੋਇ ਵਿਣਾਸੁ ॥

लेखा होइ त लिखीऐ लेखै होइ विणासु ॥

Lekẖā ho▫e ṯa likī▫ai lekẖai ho▫e viṇās.

If there be any account of His creation, then man would finish while writing.

ਨਾਨਕ ਵਡਾ ਆਖੀਐ ਆਪੇ ਜਾਣੈ ਆਪੁ ॥੨੨॥

नानक वडा आखीऐ आपे जाणै आपु ॥२२॥

Nānak vadā ākẖī▫ai āpe jāṇai āp. ||22||

O Nanak! Call Him great. He Himself knows His Own-self.

Sikhni777 quoted:

"There is a line in Gurbani which says if you dont plant the seed of naam here, what will you eat in the future? It is Naam dhi kamayi which we have come to get here so that we may be able to feed on it and survive in the future."

ਜਿਨੀ ਐਸਾ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਚੇਤਿਓ ਸੇ ਕਾਹੇ ਜਗਿ ਆਏ ਰਾਮ ਰਾਜੇ ॥

जिनी ऐसा हरि नामु न चेतिओ से काहे जगि आए राम राजे ॥

Jinī aisā har nām na cẖeṯi▫o se kāhe jag ā▫e rām rāje.

They, who did not contemplate on such a Name of God, why did they come in this world?

ਇਹੁ ਮਾਣਸ ਜਨਮੁ ਦੁਲੰਭੁ ਹੈ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਸਭੁ ਜਾਏ ॥

इहु माणस जनमु दुल्मभु है नाम बिना बिरथा सभु जाए ॥

Ih māṇas janam ḏulambẖ hai nām binā birthā sabẖ jā▫e.

Very difficult to obtain is this human birth and without the Name, it all goes in vain.

ਹੁਣਿ ਵਤੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਨ ਬੀਜਿਓ ਅਗੈ ਭੁਖਾ ਕਿਆ ਖਾਏ ॥

हुणि वतै हरि नामु न बीजिओ अगै भुखा किआ खाए ॥

Huṇ vaṯai har nām na bīji▫o agai bẖukẖā ki▫ā kẖā▫e.

Now, in the opportune season, man sows not God's Name. What will the hungry eat, hereafter?

ਮਨਮੁਖਾ ਨੋ ਫਿਰਿ ਜਨਮੁ ਹੈ ਨਾਨਕ ਹਰਿ ਭਾਏ ॥੨॥

मनमुखा नो फिरि जनमु है नानक हरि भाए ॥२॥

Manmukẖā no fir janam hai Nānak har bẖā▫e. ||2||

The way-ward are born again. Such is the will of God, O Nanak.

The devte and devia are extra terrestrial beings. They have been known under many names and forms all around our planet over many ages shaping human existstance as we know it today due to the technogy thy posses and the higher intelligence they have than our human form. However they too just like us humans have to battle with the panj chor to attain waheguru.

Like exists on other planets, Guru Arjun Dev Ji in his infinite wisdom wrote in Sukhmani sahib about many millions of fields of Karma, pretty much telling us theere are other species doing the same battle against the 5 demons we are. Not to mention Guru Nanak Dev Ji's journey onto other planets.

why do we doubt Guru ji when he has given us the ultimate truth? ... He has said Akal Purakh has created the joons and plantlife is within that, only now science is catching on

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/radical-conservation/2015/aug/04/plants-intelligent-sentient-book-brilliant-green-internet

people have been born with 100% recall of their previous janam as a human and known things that only that person knew .... and still we have blinkers on

We got upset when that American Pastor said SIkhi was from the devil , part of Hinduism etc and yet we still do not take Guru ji words to heart ...such is our accursed minds

Waheguru ji sanu baksh devo...Naam dan ... Bharosa dan devo

But can't live on these planets in a human body, that's for sure.

    • Today we have a major issue with Sikh youth walking into university classes like sociology and walking out extremist.  Whether that be feminist extremist or LGBTQ extremist or atheist.  When it comes to Gurbani these groups and people look for lines or a line of Gurbani and take it out of context to support their extremist LGBTQ beliefs on marriage,  gender being same or new thing no gender or infinite gender.  Like we had the ignorant couple from the states who got married by having his wife walk along with him.  The point being they dont follow Guru Sahib.   They attain 'knowledge' else where and want to force it on Sikhi.   The Sikh youth laugh at the Sikhs who bow at a fake baba's feet.  But, the irony is the Gurmukhs are shaking their head at both of them.  One is bowing to a fake baba and the other is bowing their mind by accepting secular knowledge that will always be in the trial phase.  Neither are better than the other.  The youth of today, and it's been done by a few old farts, attain masters or doctorate in fields like chemistry,  sociology or another field and then say we have a doctorate in Sikhi.  They write articles on what they want Sikhi to be and in their name they put "dr.".  Such deception is being done by these old farts.  Sikhi is about honesty, yet they start their article with deception.    If you want to be a Sikh, then Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is the teacher and classroom.  Not your sociology professor who tells you abortion of a 37 week baby is a women birth right choice, but dont kill that cow because imeat industry  is killing the environment,  go vegan.   In short,  dont be the monkey with the wrench. 
    • When it comes to other religious scriptures why did Guru Sahib say to read them? Was it to understand how to be moral? Gurbani provides us with spiritual wisdom and morals of the highest kind. It would be counterproductive to look else where for morals. Guru sahib says, give me your head (completely and only focus on the shabad) when you come on the Gurmat path. Guru Sahib tells sikhs to read other religious scriptures because when a Gurmukh has fully attuned his mind with Gurbani he can see naam everywhere. So when reading other religious scripture the Gurmukh can pick up on the naam that is there and serve the humans that are lost in the vedas, gita, bible, Koran, Torah, etc. Also Gurbani makes references on other religious scriptures concepts so we can achieve a total picture of their concepts when reading their scriptures. But many lose sight of the goal and start collecting merchandise (intellectual knowledge and maya)from these scriptures. But Guru Sahib says all merchandise can be achieved from Gurbani. Anand Sahib says this path is sharper than a double edged sword and finer than a hair.  The path of Gurmat can be simple if we follow the instructions of Gurbani or life can be made difficult by losing the purpose in life as Gurbani describes it.
    • I try to read it once a year. There's a lot to be learned from a human perspective in terms of the morals and the arguments it raises. A person doesn't have to be a Hindophile to glean something meaningful from the text.
    • U r right brother, Raam failed.Infact Gurbani says Vishnu and his avatars r subject to jamm/ kaal.
    • Iv never read mahabharat, iv got it on kindle.  It definitely sounds more interesting.
