just wondering if angels exist according to sikhi? iv been reading the gospels and Torah the last few days just out of curiosity and clearly angels are important beings in those faiths. in the gospels when jesus was asked about marriage in the afterlife, jesus responded by saying marriage does not exist in the afterlife and that one becomes like an angel etc.

does sikhi acknowledge the existence of angels? iv read some parts of shri dasam granth and angels are mentioned in there as well as other beings like heavenly singers and musicians. what about the devi and devte? are they not basically angels? 

jamdoots/messengers of death are mentioned a lot in guru granth sahib and iv read actual personal experiences of sikhs seeing jamdhoots like  Bhai Rama Singh's book etc, but iv never read or heard of any sikhs seeing angels!

Angels are different from Devas, Devas are benevolent forces but even they are trapped in maya/ego. Angels are a-lot more purer than them iirc, and less active in mundane affairs like wars. They're only shown as observers rather than active participants from the portions of DG i have read.

Angels exist; they just aren't available for us,, Devtis have an obsession showing themselves as leaders; and egomaniacs, especially Indra: who ran away from his kingdom and cried to Durga to get his kingdom back, Devti are NOT angels. There was once a time when Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Arjun Dev Ji was being Shaheed and Mian Mir asked if he could intervene, during that time Guru Sahib had told him no, and he mentioned that he had already told someone else no, Mian Mir was confused as he had no idea who was asking that; and then Guru Sahib showed him angels who had asked if they could finish the Raj of Jahangir and bring Chandu to justice. They exist to serve the light of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji; and hate showing themselves to those with no bhagti,

Angels in my hair is the book which enlightens you all about what angels do. It is a very soothing read which you will not want to put down once you have begun it. Very interesting events recorded here on how angels were a big part of someones life. They helped basically in everything. They are even present in large numbers at funerals to take peoples pain away and yet we know nothing about it.

Angels IMHO are abrahamic religious concept. Their existence in sikhi is irrelevant

I want to agree with you; however, he was asking if angels existed in the first place. Also they aren't an Abrahamic concept, (it is true that Sikhi doesn't care as much). If he asked, "if aliens existed", the answer would still be "yes", even if they aren't relevant to oyr faith.

Angels exist. In sikhi, "angels" refers to ALL that sit and sing outside sachkhand's entrance. Japji sahib's gavai pauri's tells us about all the different types of angels singing God's praises.

Just cuz the term "angel" is English, people link it to Abrahamic. All the faiths and religions have different names and terms for these same messengers and workers of God. There job is to help people who want to meet God

Yes they exist. They exist only in the mind. Just like ghosts, jamdoots, devi, devtes. I also happened to believe in these things until I did a little bit more research into it.

    • Maybe with your karma you were probably supposed to be expelled that day; and Vaheguru took that out. Sorry but there are 3 types of Karma: The Karma in your bank account, (which must be used, may be destroyed with Gur-Prassad), The Karma that you MUST pay in this life, (No exception, but can be reduced with Gur-Prassad), and the Karma that you will accumulate in this life; that should be payed in life, (may or may not be forgiven). Your Bhagti and Ardas could have decreased the debt that you were suppose to pay in this life, by merely failing the test, instead of failing. This is what separates from every other Monotheistic religions; except Sikhi; and that is we believe in Karma; and how we are different from the other Dharmic Faiths is we believe in grace and mercy; (Sikhi is a universal region; only referred it as Dharmic due to location of founding). You probably studied enough to pass; but all Karma that must be paid is paid either in full; or Guru Sahib takes your bad Karma for you and says take it away. This isn't gurbani, but we read it during Ardas: "Nanak Naam Jahaz Hai, Chade So Uttre Paar O Nanak, the name of Waheguru is like a ship which will take You to Your salvation (Take You across the ocean of life) Jo Sharda Kare Sevde, Gur Paar Uttaran Hor The ones who preach Waheguru’s name in their hearts, He takes those to their salvation Gur Paar Uttaran Hor He takes those to their salvation"

    • Ok so you didn't pass your test. But you can hardly blame God for that. Even though you put in a lot of work, I understand that, but maybe it wasn't enough, otherwise you would have passed right?  This is the thing, we tend to do paat to receive something. I'm not saying don't ask Waheguru for anything, because they are the only one that will bless and even I do ardas to them for help at times. But what I'm saying is, if you didn't receive what you wished for, don't be upset with Waheguru too much with the result, maybe there's a diversion coming in your life or it wasn't that you were to pass it because of something else or another opportunity. This time of sadness will pass too, it's normal to feel this way. I read somewhere once, God gives us what we need, not what we desire. I'm still trying to think of how this relates to my life too.  What's done is done now and it can't be reversed. Now you have to think what to do next, what are your other options. But first you should relax take a break and not keep dwelling on what's happened. Think positive that something good is in store in the future. I know this sounds weird, but one hasn't seen their future, you shouldn't predict your present on your future.   
    • Thank you everybody, but I still feel sad, not because I didn't get what I wanted but I feel sad with mahraj ji. what I wanted was to pass a test that ive been trying so hard for, I have done path too especially dedicated to this and ardas and on the day I even took a cyber hukamnama and it was really positive cant remember it exactly, it was something like waheguru ji gives you what you wish for (I just read the translations).... and today I was awake at amrit vela but I didn't get up to do my nitnem I stayed in bed and did simran, I just wanted to show mahraj ji that I am upset with him a little bit, just as I would do to show my mum ...... I don't know if gods feeling anything  or just doesn't care lol
