Death

Recommended Posts

Guest mr. singh

Hello everyone. I was having this thought for a long time. With new medical breakthroughs happening what if we found cure for aging and subsequently prevent death.Then what would happen to all religions. We humans usually follow religion because we are scared of death and the after life.

Simple, start following the correct reason to practice Sikhi. Put thought and effort into what can pull a person out of their minds created hell and/or temporary happiness. If Sikhs are scared of death, they need to start learning from the Naam around them. The true Guru has infused himself( his teachings) in the world. Lessons are learned everyday by those who are truly paying attention to Gurbani. Without Gurbani the Naam cannot be seen in creation. Some listen to their minds, others to their worldly knowledge, some to their gut feelings, but rare is that person who will leave all this behind and follow the path of Naam. Those who listen carefully to Vaheguru can hear his teachings. Such a person does not fear death. He embraces it with open arms. The power of Gurbani cannot be measured or limited. A man with ego can say I am not scared of death but death will destroy his very existence he holds claim too. Many warriors in the past have not feared death but they did not attain salvation; the true lasting peace. They did not hold God's name in their mind. A man with no belief in God can say I don't fear death but his mind is polluted by good and bad actions. His life was based on false hope and desires of the mind. As the dog is led in many directions by its owner, this man has wasted his life in countless pleasures. The soul never dies. Only the clay is reborn. It takes a form and the people enjoy this clay for a short while. Death of consciousness cannot be escaped. Not even the gods and goddesses could escape.

Some people would definitely take it an excuse to go mental, it's true, but not all of them.

Consider the Jews for example. They don't even believe in an afterlife, so there is no promise of a reward in the next world to entice them to follow their religion or be good to each other on earth - and yet they do follow it, and they are good to their fellow men. There are several reasons for this. One is that humans recognize, innately, that we are accountable to each other as well as God. It is the way God intended us to be, and the way we evolved. The example of the Jews also shows that faith does not have to be a product of cynical self-interest and fear of death. It can arise from characteristics altogether more noble. This should be very encouraging to anyone who considers himself/herself a believer.

I respect ur progressive thinking bro,

But have just simple question for u:

One science know the chemical composition of any liquid, they can reproduce it by reactions, they were still unable to produce blood, which is the main coolant kind of fluid in the body. And finally science declared back in 2015 that it is IMPOSSIBLE to produce blood on labs.

When they know its chemical composition why cant they produce it then?

So try to look something feasible in real,

Sikhi emphasis on great statement which bhagat kabir in gurbani talks about- die before you die (let mind go back to its source in jot saroop and realize there is no death). Our identification with transient body and mind is real death but identification with ONE non dual inner universal spirit unchanging (Eka jot, ekangkar- pure awake awareness aware of itself) is real immortality and amrit.

Birth is dis-integration we split into 3parts- Body, mind and soul. Birth causes confusion due to built in amnesia we forget who we really are. Spiritual being having a human experience. Death is integration again we experience more life with a wider perspective. After the illusion of death we realize we are eternal ( we live for ever) there is only one of us. Separation is an illusion .On this physical plane where we are Fear (False evidence appearing real ) is the dominant energy.

Death is a blessing by Wahiguru on the jeevas.

It is by the cycle of births and deaths, that we can make evolution as purer souls and thus one day merge in Wahiguru.

Death is of the body, not of the soul.

Death means libertaion of the soul encaged in a particular body, and as we all know, the soul has not only the gross or physical covering on it, but also the astral one, the causal one, and the mental one.

Kal Purukh in his mayavee creation, has set all sort of traps, to keep the souls encaged with different bodies; and from this web, not even the devis,devtas, gods, godesses, of the status of the trinity can get released, so what to say of those who worship them.

But as long as Wahiguru keeps showering His Daya Meher on the jeevas, the souls will be getting freed from this huge play of Maya and Kal, with the aid of Naam or Shabad alone, as it is the only power superior to Kal Purukh.

One is Kal Purukh, and the other one Supreme, is Akal Purukh, means beyond the reach of Kal.

Even then, Kal does nothing out of his own, he is a caretaker, a faithful sewak of Wahiguru Akal Purukh.

Why has Wahiguru created all this, even if expalined, we would never understand, as we are spiritually inmature.

But, one thing is sure, we are away /separate from Wahiguru, and our sole objective is to attract His Grace upon us, so we can sail this Mahabhavsagar, and safely reach our Nijh Ghar, Sach Khand, in the lap of our True Father, Satnam, Wahiguru Akal Purukh.

Nanak, Naam jahaaz, jin chareeya se utareeya paar.

Sat Sree Akal.

Biologically nothing can last forever. Even the 2nd law of thermodynamics dictates that everything 'material' eventually decays and breaks down. Even if the human mind is transferred between bodies or placed in a machine, eventually given enough time something will go wrong to make death (an end) inevitable. As a biological machine most scientists believe that the human body does have a finite lifespan, no matter how many diseases/ailments they fix the body has an inbuilt 'destiny' to die.

It is not only ageing which brings death.

Can the science avoid earthquakes?

Can the science avoid air plane crash?

Can the science avoid maladies such as cancer?

Can the science avoid murders?

These are just a few questions to ask ourselves and see how petty and limited we humans are ....

We make use of His already creation, and with the manipulation over some the already existing elements, not created or made by us, we start thinking big, that we too can do something of our own.

If we just could not choose where to when to come, how can we have a free will for our departure or not?

The only way to stop the cycle of births and deaths, can be possible, not by our maanmat, but by using His technique, His science... which we have learnt from our Guru Sahibans, through Gurmat.

And that technique, is none other than his Simran.

Prabh ka Simran, garb na baseh.

Sat Sree Akal.

    • This might help with interpretation brother. http://www.sikhawareness.com/topic/13297-english-translation-of-prof-sahib-singhs-katha-of-japji-sahib/
    • I tell you one thing that set me back years (unnecessarily in my opinion). When I started trying to read Gurmukhi properly I too tried with Gurbani but for some unfathomable reason no one told me that certain vowel symbols (especially at the ends of words) are grammatical indicators and are not actually read as part of the word. This can confuse people (well it did me).  So you might want to focus on some other less difficult texts (like children's books with words you might already know) for a bit - just to get proper familiarity with the sounds associated with the symbols.  Dasam Bani doesn't use these silent symbols so you could also maybe use that as a tool to help nail reading?  Great that you've got to this point in any case! Good on you. There is nothing like being able to read in the original script - keep at it!
    • Bhulan andar sab ko, abhul Guru kartar... Just needto cross reference with Guru ji as the saying goes anything worth knowing is worth the effort
    • It is an inadvertent way of the Pak Govt saying " Hey Sikhs, if you want to see your Historical sites, you pay for it". The fact of the matter is that Pakistan does not get a lot of tourists in. There are growing number of Sikhs going there and Sikhs going there will spend money. It won't just be pilgrim tours, there will be knock on effect in other areas too. People who left after partition may want to see their ancestral villages.  
    • No, there isn't, in the way they mean it. Granted, Gurbani says you need a guru. But that the Radha Swamis give the wrong meaning of that to say you need a "living" guru. Of course, though, our Guru is living. What they mean is a Guru made of flesh and bones. If they are saying the meaning of this is that there is a Satguru in every age (jug), then there still is a Satguru ... Guru Granth Sahib ji. It's fine to say that there is still Satguru. Where in Gurbani do they get that Satguru's name is Gurinder Singh Dhillon (the current Radha Swami guru)? Yeah. Tell them, so? You can't find God without a guru. But the only guru worth having is the Satguru (true guru). Gurinder Singh Dhillon is definitely not it. ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਬਾਝਹੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਨਹੀ ਕੋਈ ਨਿਗੁਰੇ ਕਾ ਹੈ ਨਾਉ ਬੁਰਾ ॥੧੩॥ "Without the True Guru, there is not another Guru, and the one without the Guru has a bad name." p434 Ask them to prove that Gurinder Singh Dhillon is the Satguru.
