Judaism definitely goes way back. There's even a proper term for their religious mentality: Talmudic-Pharisaic (Talmud being the holy scripture of the Jews, and the 'Pharisaic' referring to the Jewish tribes who resided in ancient Egypt, and the gods, practices, and other mystical knowledge they obtained residing in that part of the world for as long as they did).  It began in the Synagogue and eventually ended up in the Vatican, lol.

Then there's the key civilisations of the Sumerians and the Babylonians, which is where what we know to be "the Jews" worshipped the ancient gods / entities of Moloch, etc., all forces that for some reason required blood sacrifices and massacres in order to be satiated. The subsequent Judeo-Christian white-washing is a sham in order to convey a respectable front to a very questionable history.

This seems to be common about the Abrahamics. They have a habit of white washing their dubious pasts.

The Fish shape is related to Pisces. 

Before that the Jews used a ram's horn for call to prayer. This is related to Aries.

The next age is related to "age of aquarius ".

These are related to the zodiac. All pagan and astrological stuff.

I have done extensive study of Sufism, Buddhism, Jainism, Christianity, Hindusim as well as as many African belief systems and so on. It would be nice to discuss some of them here if possible. I stayed roughly 3 years at Dharamsala to learn different aspects of buddhism and 5 years at Rishikesh in search of sadhoos and mahatmas hiding in Rishikesh caves. I did meet many old hindu yogis there and gained much sought after knowledge from them, which is totally impossible to gain by just reading books. I have read about Mazdayasna as well as Bah'a'i faith. Having said all this, I have to admit I did all this roughly 14 years ago when I was in my late teens and mid twenties before I married and settled down. It would be nice to discuss them to refresh my memory! Oh, by the way, I also stayed 19 months at the holy city of Amritsar and 4 months at Abchal Nagar Sachkhand hazoor Sahib for further learning. Thanks to my parents for funding most of my visits and stays in India. It wasn't unusual for me to run out of funding from time to time.

You are so lucky to be able to spend so much time at such special places (Hazoor Sahib, Amritsar) with funding!

Like you, I too did my research when I was much younger, teens and beyond. I know that if I did it again, I'd pick up a lot more than I did when I first did it. But that being aid, Sikhi is a limitless khazana and just studying it (especially if you include Dasam Granth) seems sufficient to me. I notice that it isn't mind narrowing like some other abrahamics. It has the opposite effect on so many dimensions.

I did a lot of research into Buddhism and did like a lot of what I read, I even applied some of it to my own life to positive effect.

However I didn't like the monk and nun aspect of it. They believe that only the monks and nuns can receive enlightenment in this life. If everyone became a monk or nun the whole world would simply stop working.

One of the main differences between the Sikhi philosophy and Buddhist philosophy it is the Buddhist tendency to detach from life whereas we acommodate life. 

If you ever get the chance to see a debate between one of our Gursikhs and Buddhist, it is fascinating.

The debate between Dharmiks becomes metaphysical,  it is a far higher level discussion that you can never have with a Abrahamic.

Thank you :)

I wouldn't know where to begin. The whole experience changed my life forever.  India is a miraculous place, full of spirituality and mystery.  What would you like to know? I was brought up in a very materialistic environment, taught to chase after worldly dreams and goals from a very young age. I was taught to strive and aim for worldly success like everyone else around me.  Once I reached 16, I started questioning and looking for something beyond. 

I'm really interested in the law of attraction and a lot of the videos I've seen link back to teachings that these people have had from their 'master's' Rishikesh. :)

Did you experience or gain any teachings related to this?

You will have to go there to learn this from a very genuine master.  I was a highly skeptical individual in my late teens and early twenties. I was too cynical to believe in any supernatural powers in those days. So,  even if they did display any powers, I was a very reluctant believer or observer. It is only later on in my life that I started noticing pcychic abilities in others and appreciating them. Why are you so interested in law of attraction? Are you trying to attract something or someone? Don't forget, even if you succeed in attracting something or someone, be ready to experience the reaction. Make sure the master is there to guide you.  You don't have to go looking for one, he will appear when the time is right for you. Read 'Autobiography of a Yogi' if you haven't already read it yet.

I've been praying for my broken marriage and as I've been listening to katha I've noticed the concept of praying for something and believing/having faith that God has the power to bless u/save u quite similar to the law of attraction. Apart from they pray to the universe and we pray to the master of the universe. 

It's all about believing in the higher energy and acknowledging the power we have as humans to connect to that higher energy. 

I see guru maharaj ji as my master because whenever I'm feeling low some katha or saakhi or comment will pop up which rebuilds my vishwas and lifts me up. 

I haven't heard of the reaction, what's that all about?  🤭

I am very sorry to hear about your marriage break-up, I wish I could say something soothing to comfort you. Please look after yourself and your children if you have any. Very sorry again. Please, believe me when I say, praying is the best way to cope with such a difficult time or experience in your life.  You are totally correct that it is only our faith in God  that can help us in times like these, there is  no other greater authority or power that can rescue us and show us the right way to deal with sad situations when they arise. So, please have faith in God and don't give up hope.  We have enormous amount of ability to connect with God, there is no doubt about it. I am not sure if w can pray to Him to return the person that has walked out of our life. He or she walked out because of the Great One's Hukam. I mean, God willed it to happen and that's why it happened. We have to learn to live with His Will. God is the only guy that can bless us no one else has the ability to take over or replace this role of His'. He is the only One.  I am not sure about praying to the Universe or what it entails. If you are a sikh by birth, which I am not, you as a true sikh should only pray to One. There is only Him (One) and no one else. There is no Higher Authority than Him.

The Gurus have taught us how to connect with Him. You have to read the SGGS and the Dasam Granth in order to understand the concept of Master and not 'master' as there are countless of these around and none can match the Master. The Master finds you and not vice versa.  You don't have to memorize the whole of the SGGS or DG if it is difficult for you, sometimes only one Panktee will suffice to transform your entire life. Have you heard of the Shabad :  (Dehe Naam Santokhiya Uttrrey Mann Ki Bookh)? If you have then work on it. I can promise you each and every shabada, (letter)  in the SGGS is empowering and life transforming.

You are correct, we, as sikhs, have only one Master. There is no need to go wandering about in the wilderness. He is waiting for us.  He only finds us when we have done enough of the Manmatt, lost all hope and gained nothing.  He is merciful and very loving. We have no power to find such a Great One. He is All Powerful.

I urge you to read the Dasam Granth Banies too.  My life changed. It is so empowering that words fail me here. If you are a woman, please read it. It is the most empowering Granth for women all over the world.

Have you heard of this Shabad from DG: (Giyaan Hoon Ke Giyaata Maanha Buddhitta ke Daata ....)?  Now, how powerful is that? If you are looking for occult/supernatural/spiritual giyaan this the the most empowering line that will change your perspective regrarding praying to the Universe.  I am not sure if praying to the universe is same as praying to God. In my humble opinion, it is not. I might be wrong. If you are a woman, then please read the DG and have faith. You don't have to look for any masters for the Big Master is waiting for you to give you all you need or want or desire, not only in this life but in every life your soul may reside in.  He is the Master of all the masters.

Regarding the concept of 'reaction', if you can try and understand the concept of Tithe, and why as humans, we need to oberseve and adhere to it, it will help. It is a very important rule of the game, we should obey it and live our lives in accordance to it. I first heard about this concept during my childhood from the church priests and parents. It didn't make any sense to me then.  Why give tithe of everything you have to others, when they never worked to earn or deserve it, I asked. I found my answer only later on when my Master found me and I am so grateful to Him, the Great Master. I also learned you can only love and serve one Master and no too or many. Please, take heart, and listen to our loving and merciful Master.  Don't look anywhere else, He is right here with you. May God shower you with all His Blessings.

Marriage break-up is not the end, it's a beginning of something new, don't forget.

Pen ji thank u so much for ur words. Honestly at this time of dukh every word counts. 

My hubby has been mislead by his family who all have had love marriages. 😪 I just don't know what to say. We are both amritdahri. I just feel like our laavan must have some power otherwise guru sahib wouldve just suggested a court marriage. I have full faith in waheguru ji, I know our karam and kismat play a big role but listen to this;

And guru sahib made reete mitte, he made sajjan thag into sant sajjan. What can guru sahib not do? We just need to have unbreakable faith. It's been 5 month since my hubby has contacted me and he's blocked all ways of contact so I can't contact him but look at the power waheguru ji has put in me - I still have faith (I couldn't have this on my own- it's guru sahib) 

I have read bhai guriqbal Singh jis book on power of sukhmani sahib and I'm trying to do 2-3 sukhmani sahibs daily but my target is to do 5. Waheguru ji can do anything....here's an example 

 

I just feel that Dhan guru ram das jis laavan can't be that weak. Our marriage is like a triangle with guru sahib at the top and me n my hubby at the bottom. He has more responsibility than us. Our souls have been joined with him, dhan guru ram das ji will keep my laaj. People laugh at me and say I'm not being realistic, I'm not thinking logically, it's 2020 ..... But I know that logic and and are two separate poles, if i use my brain and logic - guru sahib won't use his powers. 

What dasam bani do u suggest. I used to read brahm kavach but the sucham scared me a little. 

Please I heard in the katha that the only thing above the guru is the sangat. Please as the roop of the sangat give me blessing of a happy marriage and gursikhi jeevan with my hubby. Please I beg u

    • The Anandpur Sahib Resolution : The Anandpur Sahib Resolution represents a pivitol point of Sikh history,  after many years of failed negotiations with the Govt, a list of minimum Sikh demands was drafted. It is interesting to note that it was drafted in 1973 and it was only after the Govt failed to accept these basic demands (many of which most States already enjoyed from 1947) that the Sikhs were forced into the Dharam Yudh Morcha (Agitation and protest).Read more: https://khalsaforce.in/anandpur-sahib-resolution/ Point by point demands found here: https://www.satp.org/satporgtp/countries/india/states/punjab/document/papers/anantpur_sahib_resolution.htm (Excerpted from The Encyclopedia of Sikhism, Vol. 1, 1995, ed., Harbans Singh, page 133-141) Anandpur Sahib Resolution, a frequently invoked document of modern Sikhism pronouncing its religious rule as well as its political goal. After having enjoyed power under chief ministers, Gurnam Singh and Parkash Singh Badal in the Punjab, newly demarcated in 1966, Sikhs are represented by their premier political party, the Shiromani Akali Dal, were able to capture only one seat at the elections to Indian parliament (1971) from among the 13 which were Punjab’s portion. In the Punjab Assembly elections which took place in March 1972 their tally was a mere 24 seats of a total of 117, and the Punjab Government passed in to the hands of the Congress Party, with Giani Zail Singh (later, President of India) as chief minister. This electoral debacle led to self introspection on the part of the Shiromani Akali Dal which appointed on 11 December, 1972, a sub-committee to reflect upon the situation and to proclaim afresh the programme and polices of the Dal. The 12 member committee consisted of Surjit Singh Barnala, Gurcharan Singh Tohra, Jiwan Singh Umranangal, Gurmeet Singh, Dr. Bhagat Singh, Balwant Singh, Gian Singh Rarewala, Amar Singh Ambalavi, Prem Singh Lalpura, Jaswinder Singh Brar, Bhag Singh, and Major General Gurbakhsh Singh of Badhani. The first meeting of the sub-committee took place at Amritsar. The venue then shifted to Chandigarh where the committee completed its task in ten successive meetings. Counsel was available to the sub-committee of the celebrated Sikh intellectual and thinker, Sirdar Kapur Singh, whose impress the draft emerging finally from its deliberations carried. The document was adopted unanimously by the working committee of the Shiromani Akali Dal at a meeting held at Anandpur Sahib, town sacred to Guru Gobind Singh, also reverenced by Sikhs as the birth place of the Khalsa. Since it was adopted at Anandpur Sahib (October 16-17, 1973) the resolution came to be known as the Anandpur Sahib Resolution. It was endorsed in the form of a succession of resolutions at the 18th All India Akali Conference of the Shiromani Akali Dal at Ludhiana on 28-29 October, 1978. An English version of the resolution is quoted below: Read more about its history:https://www.thesikhencyclopedia.com/the-modern-history-of-sikhs-1947-present/anandpur-sahib-resolution
    • You deleted the post, but withing one hour someone from the mod team deleted the whole thread from the forum. Did you request the mod team to delete the thread?  Why were the mod team so quick to delete a thread that was about grace?  You cannot delete threads.  You should have no problem posting the two separate writes ups you did in that thread.  Be honest, you don't want the sangat here to read what you wrote because in one of the post you asserted to being Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.   Right after I asked you,  are you claiming to be Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji?  It could not have been 30 minutes later you deleted the write up on both post and within the hour the thread disappeared.    Since you have the two post saved.  Let the sangat see what you wrote.  Your post contained no top secret information or anything special but they did speak to how you see yourself.    
    • How can you say naam simran is not required?! all of gurbani is telling us to jap naam. Every ang is related to naam. Every rehatnama which tells us to read nitnem also say to jap naam before bani. Naam should start when your eyes open at amrit vela, carry on while showering and then finally on assan. This is what maharaj tells us ਮਃ ੪ ॥ Fourth Mehla: ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ ਸੁ ਭਲਕੇ ਉਠਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ One who calls himself a Sikh of the Guru, the True Guru, shall rise in the early morning hours and meditate on the Lord's Name. ਉਦਮੁ ਕਰੇ ਭਲਕੇ ਪਰਭਾਤੀ ਇਸਨਾਨੁ ਕਰੇ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਸਰਿ ਨਾਵੈ ॥ Upon arising early in the morning, he is to bathe, and cleanse himself in the pool of nectar. ਉਪਦੇਸਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਪੁ ਜਾਪੈ ਸਭਿ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਪਾਪ ਦੋਖ ਲਹਿ ਜਾਵੈ ॥ Following the Instructions of the Guru, he is to chant the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. All sins, misdeeds and negativity shall be erased. ਫਿਰਿ ਚੜੈ ਦਿਵਸੁ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਗਾਵੈ ਬਹਦਿਆ ਉਠਦਿਆ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ Then, at the rising of the sun, he is to sing Gurbani; whether sitting down or standing up, he is to meditate on the Lord's Name. ਜੋ ਸਾਸਿ ਗਿਰਾਸਿ ਧਿਆਏ ਮੇਰਾ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਸੋ ਗੁਰਸਿਖੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਵੈ ॥ One who meditates on my Lord, Har, Har, with every breath and every morsel of food - that GurSikh becomes pleasing to the Guru's Mind. ਜਿਸ ਨੋ ਦਇਆਲੁ ਹੋਵੈ ਮੇਰਾ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਤਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਗੁਰੂ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਸੁਣਾਵੈ ॥ That person, unto whom my Lord and Master is kind and compassionate - upon that GurSikh, the Guru's Teachings are bestowed. ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਧੂੜਿ ਮੰਗੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਕੀ ਜੋ ਆਪਿ ਜਪੈ ਅਵਰਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਵੈ ॥੨॥ Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of that GurSikh, who himself chants the Naam, and inspires others to chant it. ||2|| Guru Raam Daas Ji in Raag Gauree - 305 Doesn’t everyone’s panj Singhs give hukam for 2 hours simran? Or is it different for every jatha Minimum nitnem for abhiyaasi: 2 hours naam simran  5 baniyan Sukhmani sahib  assa di vaar  10 Ang sehaj paath  this is what daas was told at amrit sanchar.
