Do most people go Hell ?

Recommended Posts

Do most people just end up in hell or some other low lifeform?  And just small % of people actually make to a heavenly abode and even smaller actually make it to sachkhand?  

Read some Buddhist writing and it said you can be tortured in hell for a million years though in earth days it's just a couple of days.

Sometimes people have a really scary nightmare. During that time, they are living that scenario, and do not realise that it’s a dream state.

In the same way, this life is a state of dream. As such, people accept it as reality. When a person wakes up from the dream, they realise that it wasn’t real.

Gurbani awakens us from the deep sleep of maya (the absence of creator). Once the Atma awakens and attaches to the creator’s Jyot, then there is no narak or sawarg. There will be just pure bliss...

The bottom line...we have to change our mindset, in order to change the world or dimension that we are living in at the moment...

Yh but how many people in the entire world are actually able to do that? A tiny tiny minority I'm guessing.

If only. Those evil cucks in Hell probe places beyond the physical.

On a serious note, I read somewhere that Hell is us reliving the bad things we did over and over again (kind of like watching the scene play out on stage in a theatre production) so that we understand the severity of our actions. Apparently, the mental torture (because all that remains is the consciousness) is beyond any physical pain we feel when alive.

It does seem that it’s a very small number of people who will succeed in our life aim. 
 

There is a ‘crime’ and punishment for example for disrespecting elders or drinking- well in today’s society (kaljug), parents are giving their kids a drink and it’s also become acceptable in many families to tell your elders to shut up etc? Or some parents now really are crazy where a child speaking out is actually kind of justified.
Then you have parents ask their kid if they have got a girl or boy friend and encouraging it. You have parents letting the kids partner come and stay the night too so obviously the kid won’t think it’s wrong. 
So I wonder where the line is... like some people from birth are brought up a certain way so they had no chance of not committing these sins?

A person was full with an abundant amount that he had eaten already. Someone placed something very delicious in front of him, and instructed him to eat it. Since that person was full to the brim already, he just played around with it. He looked for any any lame excuse that he could use, in order to avoid eating it...

When the mind is full to the brim with attachment to maya (the absence of the Jyot), the mind looks for lame excuses to steer away from Naam...

Tge creator gives ample opportunities to receive Naam but alas, we have no room for it...

Mankind is full to the brim with the desires of beautiful lusty partners. Full to the brim with desires of modern day horses (expensive sports cars). Full to the brim with desires of expensive and extravagant houses...

Arguing or disobeying one’s parents is only a paap, if they’re trying to teach you Gurmat, and you’re opting for anti Gurmat life style...

If parents want to cut their child’s kes, force them to drink and smoke, and engage in other non Gurmat practices. And if that child argues and disobeys the parents or elders, and follows the Gurmit path. 
 

I cannot see that child going to narak for disobeying parents/ elders...

Some people will claim that narak and sawarg do not exist...

Well, when someone has a very unpleasant nightmare, is that not narak?

The person is scared witless, and may even break out in a cold sweat with unimaginable palpitations. Yet in the nightmare, the mind has accepted the whole thing as realty...

In the same way, after death, the mind’s anti Gurmat focus becomes fixed. Hence, the narak nightmare appears to be real...

    • I won't derail the topic, but to answer the question, it's a human to desire to belong to something exclusive. Long-term, from a Sikh perspective, it weakens the overarching super-structure instead of strengthening it. How? Because it allows other non-benevolent factions to emerge (either organically through well-meaning albeit misguided personalities OR entities and groups with an insidious agenda designed to disrupt and fracture) who argue their legitimacy; that they are as justifiable in their existence as the earlier groups. With factions comes conflict. Job done.
    • We should be supporting Sikh businesses where we can. ⠀ ⠀ As Sikhs- we should be uplifting each other as we would in Khalsa Raj. Support our brothers and sisters in their ventures. ⠀ ⠀ We have so many Sikh entrepreneurs that we shouldn’t really need to look outside of the Sikh community- from Creatives to Real Estate. ⠀ ⠀ 
    • While the world is learning to adjust to the challenges the Covid-19 pandemic has brought, India-based Amul dairy is promoting ancient ways of protecting immune systems, with the help of Ayurveda alongside practicing a healthy life style. Amul has already launched an Immunity Booster beverages range – Amul Haldi Doodh, Amul Tulsi Doodh, Amul Ginger Doodh and Amul Ashwagandha Doodh – and now the company has extended the Immunity Booster portfolio with its introduction to the ice cream category. Amul’s new Haldi Ice Cream is made with the goodness of Haldi, Pepper and Honey and the richness of dry fruits including dates, almonds and cashews. Amul describes its new offering as a mix of health and great taste. Turmeric is known for its antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties. For centuries, traditional systems like Ayurveda have used haldi, both fresh and as a dried spice powder, to promote health. Turmeric is referred to as a super food worldwide for its various health-promoting properties. In addition, pepper is another spice that is known to Indian households to treat respiratory diseases and good for digestion. Honey is also rich in antioxidants and can help dry throats. Accompanying Amul’s new offering is a nationwide TV and print media campaign promoting the products’ health benefits. Amul’s new ice cream is available at a price of Rs 40 (125ml tamper proof cup). The company will soon be adding Immuno Chakra Ice Cream (in a stick of 60ml) and Star Anise Doodh (in a 200ml can) to the range. Haldi Ice Cream is being packed at state of the art manufacturing plants in North and West India, with a production capacity of 5,00,000 packs per day. https://www.dairyindustries.com/news/34965/amul-launches-new-haldi-ice-cream/#:~:text=Amul's new Haldi Ice Cream,antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties.
    • It looks like this word has been used in Faridkot teeka Any 136 ਅਠਸਠਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਸਗਲ ਪੁੰਨ ਜੀਅ ਦਇਆ ਪਰਵਾਨੁ ॥   ਅਠਾਹਠਂ ਤੀਰਥੋਂ ਕੇ ਇਸਨਾਨ ਅਰ ਸਭ ਪੁੰਨੋਂ ਕੇ (ਪਰਵਾਨੁ) ਸਦਰਸ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਜੀਵੋਂ ਪਰ ਵਾ ਆਪਨੇ ਜੀਵ ਪਰ ਦਯਾ ਕਰਨੀ ਹੈ॥   Looks like it means parvaan if I have understood correctly.   However there is also the following where Faridkot has used the same but here it seems it's been used to mean "other" or "second" if I have understood correctly, unless it means greater or foremost? ਆਪੇ ਕਰੇ ਕਰਾਏ ਕਰਤਾ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਦੂਜਾ ਤੁਝੈ ਸਰੇ ॥੯॥  (Ang 552) ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਸਭ ਕੁਛ ਆਪ ਹੀ ਕਰਤਾ ਕਰਾਉਤਾ ਹੈ ਔਰ ਦੂਸਰਾ ਕੋਈ (ਸਰੇ) ਸਮਾਨ (ਤੁਝੈ) ਤਿਸ ਕੇ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ ਵਾ ਹੇ ਕਰਤਾ ਤੂੰ ਸਭ ਕਛੁ ਆਪ ਹੈਂ (ਤੁਝੇ) ਤੇਰੇ ਸਦਰਸ ਹੋਰੁ ਕੋਈ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ ਇਸੀ ਤ੍ਰਹ ਸੇ ਸਭ ਪਦ ਸਨਮੁਖ ਲਗਤੇ ਹੈਂ॥੯॥   Faridkot teeka has used this word quite a bit, I think it has been used slightly differently at different times. If you put the following search in Google, you can find all the instances the word has been used in Faridkot teeka: "ਸਦਰਸ site:srigranth.org" (without the speech marks)
    • I want to start a thread just about 84 and the movement afterwards so anyone can come here and learn about it more . To kick it off here is a speech of jaswant singh khalra I came across a few days ago. You can feel in his speech that genuine pain in his heart, from having seen with his own eyes the genocide of our own people.    Here is a channel I came across setup as a tribute to 84 for maybe more rare video footage I'd guess not everyone on here has seen.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCmZvPBEoVmtvLrv07TNYtw/videos   also here is an interview of shaheed bhai amrik singh's son bhai tarlochan singh ji,  I will try to keep this tread updated and going, and ask sangat to contribute as well.
