There is plenty of meditation is Sikhism and through meditation you can achieve peace.

I realize that, however, meditation in Sikhism is naam simran, that is not the case in Buddhism.

Well thats what I was trying to say   they don't meditate on waheguru. I know some thai Buddhist and they worship Buddha! They believe buddha can grant their wishes. They pray facing a idol of Buddha     but this is from my interaction  with a couple of thai Buddhists

It was Laxmi who took avtar as Raja Janaks daughter Sita.... not mahalaxmi.

Theres a big difference between Laxmi & Mahalaxmi.

Whenever I come on this site there’s always same lot commenting on every topic regardless of whether they have enough knowledge on the subject of the topic or not.... it’s pathetic that some people either think they are possessed with so much gyan that they can answer on any topic or that they have nothing better to do then spend most their time on a website that has become an accumulation of the dumb & retarted.

If anyone is under the illusion that the panth is headed in the right way they should come on this site & read the utter bakwas on here.

 

forgive me for believing what I had seen before in my life , as both being depicted as interchangeable .  But my main point was to show that Kings can be holy. saintly too ...which Raja Janak was known for  . sorry to offend you so much ...

Someone quoted this about Buddha:

The Buddha played enlightenment on easy mode

Born when everyone lived close to nature

Royalty, everything was handed to him without effort. Pleasures, wealth, power - could see  the pointlessness of it all at an early age. Clarity of mountain top vision without having to climb.

Come on people. 

personal observation of energy dynamics of monks at close quarters - loads of suppressed anger maybe because they are dedicated at such a young age kind of like girls used to be given to the convent to avoid poverty of family back in the medieval ages .(treated youngsters for scabies and elders for emotional issues) Even female Buddhist 'monks' seem unhealthily fixed on ritualistic fasts like not speaking but, then this is enforced on all and sundry around them as it will offend them by hearing speech (???)  Sikhi is simple and practical and doesn't force others to comply to what is essentially a personal decision or blow hot and cold if someone else is not doing exactly what they are .

Talking to buddhists there seems to be a myriad of beliefs within its traditions some contradictory to each other ...in that way it is similarly hard to pin down like 'hinduism' .

But then, as per the topic of this present thread, just as it could be any other on a public forum, found this interesting piece of information on Buddhism on the net, and thought of sharing it.

 

                The main aim of Buddhism is to realise a very simple fact :

“Suffering is not caused by ill-fortune, by social injustice, or by divine whims. Rather, suffering is caused by the behaviour patterns of one's own mind.”

No matter what the mind experiences, it usually reacts with craving, and craving always involves dissatisfaction. When the mind experiences something distasteful, it craves to be rid of the irritation. When mind experiences something pleasant, it craves the pleasure will remain and intensify.

Therefore, the mind is always dissatisfied and restless. This is very clear when we experience unpleasant things, such as pain. As long as pain continues, we are dissatisfied and do all we can to avoid it. Yet even when we experience pleasant things, we are never content. We either fear that pleasure might disappear, or we hope that it will intensify.

People dream for years about finding love but are rarely satisfied when they find it. Some become anxious that their parter will leave; others feel that they settled cheaply and they could have found someone better. Ans we all know people who manage to do both. ;)

There is only one way to exit this vicious circle of craving and suffering-

“If, when the mind experiences something pleasant or unpleasant, it simply understands things as they are, then there is no suffering.

If you experience sadness without craving that sadness go away, you continue to feel sadness but you do not suffer from it.

If you experience joy without craving that the joy linger and intensify, you continue to feel joy without losing your peace of mind.

  * By Vartul Pandey . 

 

Some more valuable thoughts:

Pedro Izecksohn :   The purpose of Buddhism is to avoid rebirth. Buddha preached that if you have no desire nor will nor wish then you will not reborn.

If you are in Mahayana and follow the bodhisattva path, it will give you much joy, as it is a pleasure to help others.

 

Loren Kimsey, American Secular Buddhist :  the entire point of Buddhism is the cessation of suffering for all beings. This was The Buddha’s goal from the moment he set out to become enlightened.

 

Safwan Zabalawi

the purpose of Buddhism is to reveal the potential of Enlightenment to the Law of Life, so that one can take responsibility to transform any hardship and to lead a happy meaningful life - helping others do the same.

In Nichiren Buddhism, the purpose of Observing the Mind during chanting the Dharma - is to be aware of the powers acting in us. Once we understand the contents of our thoughts - we can lead these thoughts to a direction of creating value and benefit for our life and others.

Buddhism, initially is very simple and profound. 

They only deal in asking answerable questions. So they recognize that something far beyond our grasp set all this in motion, and that One being is so far beyond our minds grasp, it is futile to describe. 

They progress to then consider what one can experience directly. 

That beings are trapped in a cycle of birth and death. That this type of existence is full of suffering. That suffering comes from the desires of the ego. These desires are to be released through the practices of their path. 

They believe in karam and follow a code of conduct. 

  1. Abstain from killing (Ahimsa);
  2. Abstain from stealing;
  3. Abstain from sensual (including sexual) misconduct;
  4. Abstain from lying;
  5. Abstain from intoxicants.

Thus they seek to conduct themselves rightfully, meditate, and still the mind of thoughts and desires until the Truth is all that is left. 

@jkvlondon is correct that these beliefs now vary widely having had much human mind applied to them. It is common for individual practitioners to over intellectualize their practice as well. 

While asceticism is a valid path, it is dangerously close to escaping from the world, and sitting in a cave near the world ocean instead of crossing it. 

If one achieves the top state of the Buddha, one would have to then recognize Akal Purakh and NaamJaap for Mukhti. As we know, if one does this even once with the right beingness they are saved.  

I personally dont follow the path of Buddha. It does not have the right emphasis on the Timeless One. It is too steeped in the mind now and overly and prematurely ascetic overall. 

That being said, nobody needs to Nindiya Buddha or Buddhists. Saying Buddha simply cowered through life is patently false, and vastly oversimplified. 

Like @jkvlondon I am thankful for Vaheguru.   Without Kirpa I would never be and would never make it.

All the help and still I remain a fool living with five thieves.

    • I didn’t say there is no racism in the Uk or that there is no casteism in Panjab.  I have family back home involved in politics so I have primary sources for my info as well.  I think with all respect, you are the one ‘talking shyte’ here. Again, to address directly the main points of the original post of this thread, it’s not just jatts in high positions and there are already quotas. I agree casteism is a major obstacle for Ekta in the Panjabi Sikh community. But, for example, more qualified people from ‘higher castes’ (including Tarkhans I think) cannot get jobs or university places because they go to the ‘scheduled castes’ first .
    • To me that's like saying because Priti Patel and Rishi Sunak are where they are, there is no racism in the UK.  You talk shyte. 
    • Akaal Takht Jathedar is from a ‘low caste’ Same with recent ex-Chief Minister Channi. There have been quotas in place for many years to ensure ‘lower castes’ get many reserved political seats and (from my understanding) the same with senior Religious positions. Same for government jobs and university places in general. You have made a topic and points here which are quite inaccurate and misleading
    • I think nonjut Sikhs should just wait for these retards to hang themselves.  They say if you give a fool enough rope they'll hang themselves....I think they are halfway into that process already. Generally they are too retarded to have any even remotely constructive or intelligent conversation/negotiation with (as the forum has shown over the last decade).  Let's watch the inevitable show.   Hopefully it will be more interesting and stimulating than this one:        
    • With the jat Sikhs making the majority in Punjab and having the most power . IE in terms of politics and also religiously. IE all major people controling and running the Gurdwaras being from this demographic. Should other castes be give some kind of quota for top jobs so we can have more equality and diversity in the Punjabi society and social strata. Or are they to power hungry and unable to share?  I think that is the only way of achieving a strong United Punjab instead of one where there is to much in fighting and resentments.
