Why Guru Gobind Singh sahib uprooted a weed with his arrow ? Was that a karamat ?

Recommended Posts

When a muslim man came and told news of shaheedi of younger sons of Guru ji, guru ji took his arrow and updated a small weed (useless plant) nearby and said 

"Mughal empire has been uprooted. Now its days can be numbered."

So was this a karaamat ? Did Guru ji used his magical power to uproot mughal empire ? Because if he could just uproot a weed and use his spiritual power , then there would be no need to struggle externally with the empire 

or was it just guru ji's way of saying that this is how easily mughal empire will be uprooted.

Secondly, Guru Teg Bahadar ji was asked to show a miracle as a sign of him being a prophet , but guru said "Karaamat kehar hai" (miracle is tyranny).

So I can't imagine his son and actually Guru teg bahadur in next saroop doing a karamaat .

This question will be questioned by some kids in future anyways lol.

There's a difference between what happens in Waheguru's Hukam, and what is a miracle, kautak, karaamat and riddhi sidhi. So that would have to be explained in order to understand why something happened.

    • What're you talking about ??!!! In Bhai Gurdas ji's vaaran , it's clearly mentioned WaHeGuRu mantra is composed by uniting the names of god in 4 yugas. W - Wasudev (Satjug) H - Hari (Dwapar) G - Gobind (Kalyug) R - Raam (Treta) As per hindus , Parbrahm is the origin of all things  Hari means Krishna , and Krishna lived in Dwapar yug. But Krishna was named after Parbrahm , as Krishna means "attractor" , one of the names of brahm. Hindus slowly started equating Krishna to Hari.  Ramchandar is from treta, the son of Dasrath. Ram chandra means (moon of Raam) or that which reflects the character of Raam. So Raam was actually another name of Parbrahm.  Wasudev is from Satjug . Wasudev means "the residing lord". And Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj is from Kalyug.  Go(earth / vedas/ knowledge) + bind (center focal point). So Gobind means "the focal point of knowledge".  So the mantar makes sense . And TBH , our current abrahamic kinda views of sikhi are far more superficial. We really need to chew in our understanding the baani properly. I agree we don't believe in hindu devi devte, but TBH karam , dharam philosophy is much older than sikhi . What was lost and found & something which was not earlier revealed is what we collectively call "sikh matt". It's purely our egos that we despise at anything "hindu" , whereas we ourselves believe in concepts like Karam philosophy, Rebirth, need of Guru , etc which were first found in upanishads (concluding portion of vedas).  
    • As per the vedantists , there're three different types of karams : 1) Prarabdha karam This are the past karam because of which we got the current configuration in this earthly plane.  These are the karams that have fruited . There is no way to extinguish the effects of these karams , except by bearing them , whether good or bad.  It's like an arrow shot from the archer's bow cannot come back. It's destined to hit. Its too late now to undo the effect of the arrow. It only can be bore now.   Prarabdha karam makes up a person's destiny.  2) Sanchit karam These are accumulated karams , from many lifetimes. Prarabdha karam is that portion of sanchit which is taken for bearing in this lifetime. I think sanchit karam are the first ones to be destroyed by naam simran.  3) Kriyaman karam These are the current karam we're doing, the fruits of which we're destined to bear in the coming time.   
    • How about the UK-based arm of him, 'Nirvair Khalsa Jatha', is there anything wrong with them or are we all blinded by them as well?
    • This reminds me of a quote from the Godfather movie "They're animals anyway, so let them lose their souls."
    • Wow!! Can someone please give his cult the  address of Scientologist religion. He belongs in that nut house.
