What is the Sikh petspective on life beyond earth. Does it mention the universe and othe planets?

The sikh perspective on life beyond earth is made clear and understandable from Gurbani.


Following are some verses of Fifth Patshahee which confirms it, and dispels our doubts:

ਕੋਟਿ ਬਿਸਨ ਕੀਨੇ ਅਵਤਾਰ ॥

Kott Bisan Keenae Avathaar ||

He created millions of incarnations of Vishnu.

ਕੋਟਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੰਡ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਧ੍ਰਮਸਾਲ ॥

Kott Brehamandd Jaa Kae Dhhramasaal ||

He created millions of universes as places to practice righteousness.

ਕੋਟਿ ਮਹੇਸ ਉਪਾਇ ਸਮਾਏ ॥

Kott Mehaes Oupaae Samaaeae ||

He created and destroyed millions of Shivas.

ਕੋਟਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੇ ਜਗੁ ਸਾਜਣ ਲਾਏ ॥੧॥

Kott Brehamae Jag Saajan Laaeae ||1||

He employed millions of Brahmas to create the worlds.

ਐਸੋ ਧਣੀ ਗੁਵਿੰਦੁ ਹਮਾਰਾ ॥

Aiso Dhhanee Guvindh Hamaaraa ||

Such is my Lord and Master, the Lord of the Universe.

ਬਰਨਿ ਨ ਸਾਕਉ ਗੁਣ ਬਿਸਥਾਰਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

Baran N Saako Gun Bisathhaaraa ||1|| Rehaao ||

I cannot even describe His Many Virtues.

ਕੋਟਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਜਾ ਕੈ ਸੇਵਕਾਇ ॥

Kott Maaeiaa Jaa Kai Saevakaae ||

Millions of Mayas are His maid-servants.

ਕੋਟਿ ਜੀਅ ਜਾ ਕੀ ਸਿਹਜਾਇ ॥

Kott Jeea Jaa Kee Sihajaae ||

Millions of souls are His beds.

ਕੋਟਿ ਉਪਾਰਜਨਾ ਤੇਰੈ ਅੰਗਿ ॥

Kott Oupaarajanaa Thaerai Ang ||

Millions of universes are the limbs of His Being.

ਕੋਟਿ ਭਗਤ ਬਸਤ ਹਰਿ ਸੰਗਿ ॥੨॥

Kott Bhagath Basath Har Sang ||2||

Millions of devotees abide with the Lord

ਕੋਟਿ ਛਤ੍ਰਪਤਿ ਕਰਤ ਨਮਸਕਾਰ ॥

Kott Shhathrapath Karath Namasakaar ||

Millions of kings with their crowns and canopies bow before Him.

ਕੋਟਿ ਇੰਦ੍ਰ ਠਾਢੇ ਹੈ ਦੁਆਰ ॥

Kott Eindhr Thaadtae Hai Dhuaar ||

Millions of Indras stand at His Door.

ਕੋਟਿ ਬੈਕੁੰਠ ਜਾ ਕੀ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟੀ ਮਾਹਿ ॥

Kott Baikunth Jaa Kee Dhrisattee Maahi ||

Millions of heavenly paradises are within the scope of His Vision.


From these Sat Bachans of Guru Jee, we can see  there are millions of gods, mayas,  jeevas, which populate millions upon millions of  universes...

So naturally, we do understand that life and beings exist in planes of consciousness different from this physical world or universe.

Sat Sree Akal.
