Vishnu / Shiva / Bramha - what exactly are they?

Bani mentioned these 3 and we know they are avatars and one is a creator, one is a sustainer and one is a destroyer.

Bani mentions that these 3 being around multiple times and there being multiple Shiva,  Vishnu and Brahma and it seems that the universe comes into creation, sustained for a bit and then dissolves. 

The vedic scriptures obviously discusses them in great detail. And Hindus worship them like god, though now that I understand the Vedas a tiny bit better, I think I understand why our Gurus reject the Vedas but they do acknowledge the Vedas.

Are these 3 entities or are they just universal phenomenon that the ancient Vedic Hindus gave names to so that they understand the cosmos better?

These three deities are created by the creator to carry out certain tasks.

Some people worship them as God…but Gurbani states that these three have been scammed by maya. 
 

Anything scammed by maya cannot lead to mukti (liberation). Only the creator Akal Purakh can give mukti…

I guess if they have to come down to the world with all the wordly things that go on then they probably would get caught up in maya 

But for these entities that seem to be billions and maybe trillions of years old, they do seem to be quite immature with each other as they fought with each other and you would expect better from them.

They themselves seem to be caught up in a cycle if they keep coming back again and again in various incarnations and I am sure Bani has mentioned that there are multiple Shiva, multiple Vishnu and multiple Brahma. 

The Vedas, Puranas seem to be fascinating literature. Just wondering if Hindu scriptures have personified and story-telled ancient scientific phenomenon to make it digestible for a human audience who would not understand otherwise. 

In the pantheon of devtas that is believed in pagan societies across the world, the same "gods" appear again and again but the Trinity seem to be a bit different between the Hindus and other pagan societies. 

Bani acknowledges all these entities but then cuts through all that and says that there is one creator. When you focus on naam, everything else seems to inconsequential.

A few days ago daas read a thread about ridhi sidhi and there was a beautiful reply by dearest Veer Harsharan Ji where he referred to these beings as being reservoirs of Vaheguru ji's power.

It's a great way to describe it. You can see the full reply here

They were advanced humanoid beings with incredibly human flaws and vices. They had access to technology that deceived primitive humans into believing they were gods. Possibly able to manipulate space and time, and travel vast swathes of the universe. They've gone and they're never coming back. Would any of us remember an ant colony we stepped on one random day in the distant past? 

Definitely not ancient aliens, though. 😂 Inter-dimensional beings but even that's reductive. There's so much in this area of thought that's descended into lazy stereotypes. Much of the paranormal and the supernatural is related to dimensions and frequencies. We are, ultimately, a rather limited and immature species at this period of our development. We really know very little despite our assertions.

This may be helpful:

Ram is your soul

Sita is your heart

Ravan is your mind that steals your heart from your soul

Lakshman is your consciousness, always with you and act on your behalf

Hanuman is your intuition and courage that helps retrieve your heart to re-animate your soul

That's Ramanaya

That is why Ram is always with you as you are living with Ramayana with all these as states of your being...super read between lines and deep meaning.

I have a question though. Ramayana is written by the poet valmiki right? How did he know that all this happened?

Time travel? Advanced spiritual beings can traverse the universe across timeliness. 

Watch the interview with Andew Basagio who claimed to have time travelled into the future and past. History can be changed by going to the past too. 

I was recently shown the dark souls of people I knew in the past and got to understand them. All through my subconscious. But of course this can't be proven.

    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
    • There was a young Singh from abroad who went to Anandpur Sahib Hola and got into a fight with some Punjabis who were playing loud non-religious music. He had bana and a weapon or two. There were more of them than him.  He ended up losing his life. Don't be like that. Not worth it to fight manmukhs. @californiasardar1 ਮੂਰਖੈ ਨਾਲਿ ਨ ਲੁਝੀਐ ॥੧੯॥ Argue not with a fool. p473
