Guru Nanak Dev Ji And Brahmans

1 post in this topic

Guru Nanak and Brahmans

Guru Nanak travelled everywhere with his faithful companion Mardana. One day he made his way to a sacred place called Hariduar, which means Gods Gate. This place, where three holy rivers join together was said to have been blessed by the gods, Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu. Huge crowds of people gathered there,. They were chanting and praying. Led by so-called holy men, called Brahmins, the people threw water towards the morning sun to honor people in their families who had died. As this huge crowd of people chanted and threw water, Guru Nanak went into the river too and he also began throwing water.

But there was something different about how he did it. Everyone was throwing water towards the rising sun, but Guru Nanak was throwing water in the exact opposite direction as everyone else. A crowd gathered around to see this crazy man. Obviously he didnt know what he was doing! A Brahman said, If you are not Hindu why have you come to a Hindu place of worship? Yes said another Foolish man! Who has taught you to do such a strange thing? Another one said, Why on earth are you throwing water the wrong way?

Guru Nanak looked at the Brahman and said, Why do you throw water to the sun? The priest said proudly, We throw water to the sun to honor our ancestors, it gives them happiness, blessings and prosperity. So, how far away are your ancestors? Asked the Guru. A man nearby heard this conversation. He had read a lot of books, so he thought he had the right answers to everything. He said, Our ancestors live thousands and thousands of miles away.

Again, the Guru started throwing water in the direction away from the sun. He was throwing the water faster and faster now, as though he was putting out a fire. As he splashed the water around, the Brahmans yelled, STOP, STOP, what are you doing!!? Guru Nanak was panting from all his splashing. He told them, I have a farm in the Punjab which is in this direction. My fields really need water, especially at this time of year. If I dont get this water over to them, my crops might dry up!

Now they really thought he was totally crazy. One of them asked, How can water get from here all the way to the Punjab?! The Guru said, Well, my farm is much closer than your ancestors. How can water reach your ancestors if it cant even reach my farm in Punjab? Well, it was true - his fields were much closer than the ancestors who, according to the Brahmins were thousands and thousands of miles away. The Brahmans still did not understand what this strange man was talking about. But Guru Nanak read their thoughts, and pointed to each one of them saying: You were thinking of business you are going to do in Kabul, the man he pointed at looked very surprised. That was exactly what he was thinking. Then Guru ji pointed to another man and said, And you, dear Brahman, you are thinking of your business in Dehli. Guru ji continued, Pundit ji, you were thinking of how you are going to make money from the people who are coming here today. He knew precisely what each of them was really thinking.

Now the men were shocked and defenseless. He had just proven that their minds were somewhere else entirely. Their minds were thinking of money and they didnt hold God in their hearts. They were the spiritual leaders, but they were thinking of money instead of God. Guru Nanak had humbled them. What can we do? Asked the Pundit. The Guru said Sincerely chant Sat Nam and let it fill you with love. Pray from your heart. Be full of God every day and every moment. Help people, be with them and guide them to the Truth. As these deep words sank in, the men stood there still in silence. Mardana and Guru Nanak continued on their journey spreading truth with love and kindness. What does it matter what we do or what religion we believe if we dont keep God in our Hearts? Let us be honest with everyone, and especially with ourselves! Let us chant and meditate together with love in our hearts.

    • We can visit the universe travelling just with our soul. Because we don't perform any meditation,  we believe our body is all we have.  However if we can have an out of body experience then we will realise how fast that type of travel is. You just need to imagine where you want to go and you will reach there. If you get too attached to your body then death will be very difficult as you thought it will just be this lifetime you had. Thus people's souls refuse to move on and the jamdhoot have to beat them and lead them on. However a pure soul will be greeted with divine guidance and will gracefully be escorted to a better place - the place they have been meditating upon to see.  There have been references of fallen angels coming to earth and reproducing with men. So the present day aliens can actually be just a mix of dna to create forms with a body and also provide them with demonic powers. Scientists mostly believe that some aliens have no digestive system thus their way if feeding is through the skin. This takes place through placing the body in a tank full of human blood so that they can feed. In order to survive and carry on their works they need human bodies,  for which they trade information of how to create loads of high tech equipment.  Who invented the laser or the mobile phone?  There are many new things with no inventors. These aliens are actually demons which have their homes in the universe.  They have used human bodies to create hybrid races.  They continue to do so and they need the co- operation of humans. They force human scientists to work under them. Lots of things and knowledge is invented to divert people from God. Delivered from the powers of darkness, is a book where the person describes their activities. He visited many such places until he was delivered. There are places under the sea as well. Therefore it is important to stick to your nitnem prayers and ardaas before you leave home.  There are powers secretly working to bring you down especially if you are a bhagat of God.  All happenings are not caused by God. These beings have ways of manipulating events. The book forms a very good informative read though it has a Christian basis. It demystifies a lot for us which goes on unseen. The book shows the power of uttering the name of God just once. All evil is taken care of and angels are eent for the protection of such a person . Therefore it is important to say Waheguru as much as possible during the daytime. 
    • ehh what about Life forms on other planets? What would you call them? Your long lost twins?  Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited another world andgot prasad from there, along with the son of Pir Dastagir, whom he showed, the universe is infinetely vast, are you really going to close your mind to the thought of other people like us out there? Aliens are mentioned in Gurbani, the word Alien just isn't used.       
    • Most Sikhs are Indians.  We have seen the consequences of fighting for our homeland in 84 nd it was bloody. India today is much stronger than in 84. Any sikh rebellion would be crushed in an instant. It would be foolish to repeat the same again

    • Gurbani has not written anything about UFO or aliens Gurbani has stated there are millions of other planets ONLY Gurbani states ghosts spirits devas demons angels musicians, messengers of death, shaheed etc NO REFERENCE TO ALIENS  IMHO there's no such thing as an alien....however I do believe in the cosmological hierarchy as stated by Sikhism Hindu Saints Buddha etc
