  1. Question From A Non-Sikh

    Hi I was wondering what do Sikhs believe about words and the power of words? Is there anything in Sikhism or your holy book that says that a person's or a Sikh's words have creative/magical/fatalistic power? Like if you say something's going to happen to you or someone, then it will happen? For example, if you were to say, "I'm not going to pass that exam" or say something you were worried about happening, by you saying it, does it make it happen? Is there anything taught about that in Sikhism?
  2. Hi quick question. Why do punjabi Sikhs believe in Shaheed's? Let me explain further... why do many punjabi Sikhs place Shaheed's on the very same platform as the Guru Granth Sahib? And devote certain days to them? Thank you
  3. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I was hoping I could receive some help for a problem I've been having for a while now.. I was fortunate enough to take Amrit a couple of months ago and I had been wanting to for a year or so. However since a couple of weeks, everytime I try to do Simran or read Gurbani, my mann keeps coming up with things like "Does God even exist?" "Why am I doing this?" and it's gotten really bad. At first I ignored it, then it got worse, I tried to explain using the science argument but it still kept talking. Then I explained that everything about Sikhi proves it. Then it kept saying "What if none of that is real?" which is pretty dumb because you can't make up centuries worth of history. Then I tried to find out about the sources of Sikh history, and I came across something saying that the Janam Sakhi by Bhai Bala ji, which is referred to a lot, wasn't written by them because of the language used and now I'm confused about all the sources even though there are loads more sources which haven't been questioned.# It's not just that, even when I don't think so deeply, everytime I listen to kirtan, katha, etc my mann keeps questioning everything. I feel really bad because taking Amrit is supposed to take me closer to Waheguru but I've clearly made it worse. I don't understand why this is happening. If it's a punishment, what is it for, will it ever stop? If it's a test, have I failed? Is it a direct result of my ego (and other vikaars) - if so how do I get it to stop? I've tried doing Ardaas but it still won't go, which is another reason why I keep questioning Waheguru's existence, and I know that unless you do it with strong belief it's unlikely that you'll get what you're asking for. I really don't know what to do, will I ever regain my belief? And how? Also, I feel like this is bedbi to taking Amrit so maybe i need to take it again? Although of course I need to regain my belief first, which I don't know how to do, please help. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
