Sikh - open minded

Recommended Posts

How does one, who's taken Amrit of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, become open minded? NOT going against the rehat! So not "I feel ill. I'll take some beer..." THAT's stupidity, not open minded! Or "I'll cut my hair cause of so and so" again, foolishness not open minded. "Eh mann chanchala, Chaturai kinaeh na paiaa." 

Without rehat infringement one can learn so much from others. Sadhguru is a perfect example. Am sure many have rolled their eyes or maybe are intrigued, why is he a perfect example? Look into his practice of yoga then you may understand. Agreeing with Sikhi, he claims to take control of your mind and body, to make it into one. So when we read Gurbani we are physically there (body) but the mind is out the door. In fact it's MILES away. 

So by meditating and tuning to Naam one must first tune the mind and body together. Methods can be found "Inner engineering" by Sadhguru. Like Sikhi, method is same, sit cross legged and breath (more technique in book). By simple Sadhna one can tune into the world, know the Earth's functions, know what the weather will be like! Understand animal language. So how will this help with Naam? Isn't it a time waste when I can sit and tune in with Naam straight? True but this is just one aspect of applying a method and benefitting the fruits. Be honest! Who would not like to know the weather or speak animal? 

YES! Brahmgiaani's have this knowledge no doubt. But for a person on the path, just started or maybe "Many years have gone by I still fail to concentrate!" Try all sort of methods besides imbuding in the Lord's name directly WITHOUT going astray from Sikhi (be open minded in your methods). The more out the box we think he more we'll realise we can always learn things/ techniques from other faiths whilst keeping our mind and Heart on Waheguru, the ultimate destination. 

However, Sadhguru's technique also involves always being happy, poses of meditation for the mind and body. The thing is nowhere he mentions "You will obtain so and so God..." He merely mentions how to be happy if your body's chakras go right. So chakra's going right, living in the moment (don't Brahmgiaanis live in a moment)? can all aid in achieving where we want to be. 

AGAIN! To clarify, this is another believer's methods of practice that could be useful into helping us concentrate better and reap other benefits. Like just focus on breathing/ emptiness for 10 minutes then recite the Lord's name for another 20 minutes.

    • Beautiful! I think Islam is probably the first step after human birth. It teaches one about faith in One god. Then perhaps christianity it teaches one morality like be kind, love etc. Then buddhism teaches us about spirituality that there's more than just pain and pleasures of Earth and heaven and hell. Or considering sikhs state these days. Buddhism might even be the ultimate.  So true lol. Those very rule adhering, only one way is correct prolly have a sunni muslim background. Whereas the dil saaf Hona chaheeda have a Sufi one. Jk. But I wonder if that's why there r different sects in sikhi too. Cuz everyone's at different levels and different things resonant with them.  We are all judged based on our actions. If you are a sikh and are a robber , you are not forgiven just for being sikh.  There are four options: temporary hell, temporary heaven, then you go into reincarnation. If good deeds then as a human. If bad then back to joona, animals. If you are very good, saintly, then you get to meet God and escape reincarnation.  If you believe in a religion,  maybe your prophet can intercede for you. But mostly we believe in karma. As you do to others, so will you reap.  Basics of Sikhi YouTube channel has videos that answer this question
    • At first I thought, victims were actual Sikhs wearing dastaar and beard, so maybe that's why they said "Sikh". To be fair, saying that "sikh men stabbed" isn't so bad. But that one article saying, "clash between sikh groups" is soo wrong.

      Yes. I promise you there are! But you have to understand what a mahapurakh is. There are individuals who people refer to as ‘mahapurakh’. These individuals could be either: fake, actual mahapurakh (very rarely), or just someone with slightly higher spiritual stage than most people (mostly the case) A true mahapurakh is a really big thing. It is someone with millions of lives of bhagati. Such people exist in our panth today, but they hide themselves. As in they could walk past you and you won’t look at them twice. If someone pointed and said “that’s a mahapurak” your reaction would be “really!?” you wouldn’t believe it. They ‘hide’ themselves by living a normal family life (gristh jeevan) - they get married, have kids, work a job, laugh and enjoy life. But start a conversation with them about naam simran and the things they say will send a shiver down your spine. Things which are beyond this body. They live in God’s hukam. A true mahapurakh will ‘recieve’ orders from God. It might be to do parchar of Sikhi, it might be a particular seva, but sometimes their order is just to keep their inner self completely hidden from the world.
