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.

    • WJKK WJKF bhenji, as long as you are in chardikala now, everything should be. Though I am not sure how much of your past should you relieve to the individual?
    • Anyone else notice where these emergent trends will end? 
    • I don't remember who told me perhaps it was my uncle but the main problem with many Sikhs in the military is that in general we are honest and not cut throat. Someone mentioned that an individual in the military had noticed this and thus he claimed that one Sikh in particular along with other Sikhs weren't savvy enough with politics to rise the ranks even though that particular individual more than deserved it. This is an important tactic even more so than being able to shoot a gun.  What I'm saying is your service is what yoy personally make it because there are rules and regulations in every western country and if something occurs that isn't just, you have the power to shed light on it.  I agree with not being manipulated but I don't think the solution is to not join the military at all nor do I think it would help change that mentality. The thing about serving in military in USA GB Aus CAN ECT is that there are international laws and the discretion of ranks and foot soldiers on how they will carry out missions. Look at Harjit Sajjan he's representative of how Canada, a country who helped USA in the wars, helped carry out certain operations while saving troop and civilian lives. You underestimate the power of an independent thinking sovereign individual. No banner can change that. I dislike this deal making culture. A while back I tried to have a rational discussion about Gurdas Man's new song. The individual I disagreed with trying to rile up feminazis in hopes they would spearhead the crusade against Mann. The writer wrote that Mann's song was somehow sexist because it portrayed the mom neglecting her kids and having substance abuse problem. Point is his plan to make a silent deal of give and take in hopes that his begging to feminazis would help him crusade against Mann failed horribly.  This is the same mentality Sikh coalition type of orgs have they think bending over to Islamophobia brigade will end up helping somehow. Similar to how Muslims are using Sikhs and BLM to white wash their own image it's at the expense of us and I would argue other people allied in the silent deal of supporting each other.  I may be wrong but I think we should be above this for the issues that are most important for us. Instead of using service as a bargaining chip military service should be independent as a means of protecting your home and further becoming an asset to the Panth. In that process individuals automatically become powerhouse for pushing and acting on our narrative.  This applies to any field really but since we are talking about military service only mentioned that.    I don't disagree with much of what you say but I think there is a fundamental flaw in assuming that military service translates into what you're saying bro      
    • “Members of our sect are strictly forbidden from hosting a reception party and accepting gifts from relatives and friends. There is no dowry. The bride does not take anything with her to the in-laws’ house. We solemnise marriages en masse, at a cost equivalent to Re 1.20, ”   How hard would it really be for Sikhs to do this? It's a sad day when even Ghadars ; (naamdhari) are more loyal to their Ghadari than some who consider themselves Sikhs and not Ghadars, to their Sikhi, but everything else was completely wrong from the Havan to a false Anand Karaj focused on Dalip Singh instead of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
