  • Did you know that these religions all include the Golden Rule?

    Question by Happykid: Did you know that these religions all include the Golden Rule?
    Hinduism:”One should not behave towards others in a way which is disagreeable to oneself. This is the essence of morality…”- Mahabharata, Anusasana Parva, 18:113:8

    Sikhism:”As you see yourself, see others as well; only then will you become a partner in heaven.” Bhagat Kabir GGS 480

    Buddhism:”I will act towards others exactly as I would act towards myself.”-The Siglo-Vada Sutta, about 500 BCE

    Judaism: “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself…” Leviticus 19:18

    Christianity: “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12

    Islam: “None of you is truly a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”- 40 Hadith

    Confucianism: “What you do not wish upon yourself, extend not to others.” – Analects of Confucius, Chapter 15, Vs 23

    Bahá’í: “Wish not for others what you wish not for yourselves”
    The last siting is Baha’u’llah Aqdas 148.73
    My point is it seems that religion is not what brings this golden rule forth, but something common in all people from all backgrounds.

    The only thing I know for a fact about Hinduism is they were the 1st advanced mathemeticians, they invented the integer of zero(0) as a way of seperating positive numbers from negative numbers, something the muslims claim they invented(yet another islamic lie)

  • Is there any way for someone who doesn’t know their birth time to figure out their “rising sign”?

    Question by Minkus: Is there any way for someone who doesn’t know their birth time to figure out their “rising sign”?

    Best answer:

    Answer by AstroLady
    Unfortunately it’s technically impossible since the Rising sign changes signs every 2 hours. However, if you have a rough estimation of when you were born, say around noon or midnight, then you can do a rough calculation…it would be advisable to take into account the other Rising sign closest to that timing as well…and then judging from your own observation, your personality traits will hopefully give it all away.

  • Does anyone hear know or believe in your “Twin Flame”?

    Question by Love of Truth: Does anyone hear know or believe in your “Twin Flame”?
    There is a theory that when God created us he created us as male and female Ovid. Your soul split & one half, the masculine energy went one way, & the other half, the feminine energy went the other. As we spiritual progress or for that matter digress it affects our other twin flame. We might not meet our twin flame in this lifetime, but in some life we are bound to. They may be a friend, sibling, parent, relative, or other associate. People don’t realize this as they have a romantic conceptualization about soul mates which is not the same thing as a Twin Flame. We can have many soul mates or kindred spirits but we only have one twin flame. Often when we meet our twin flame things aren’t always love and roses but often all hell breaks loose as they stimulate our karmic crap to come to the surface. I believe I was in relationship with my twin flame about 5 years back, and let me tell you it was a very powerful experience. & yes, all hell did break loose.
    bettierage, sounds like an interesting story.
    no, really,…, Actually I believe this comes out of the Hindu Tradition. A woman named Elizabeth Clare Prophet has most recently brought it to the attention of the western world. She has an easy to read book about it. Also she has a very interesting website with not only information about this subject but a whole host of fascinating topics. Here’s the link to the site if you are interested.

    no, really, …, I believe it to be possible that one might be born out of ones energy orientation which might explain the feeling of being confused in a particular genders body. However the Twin Flame concept states you are only whole as male and female energies bound into one self. Reunion with the Twin Flame might be one spiritual goal we strive to seek. This may explain the reason why so many people feel incomplete without a life partner. I do believe her book advocates that you can feel whole without literal union with ones Twin Flame. You are always connected to him/her in one way shape or form and this can be tapped into via certain spiritual exercises.

    You also asked about soul mates. For one we have many soul mates but only one Twin Flame. A soul mate is a kindered spirit with whom share a spiritual tast. Elizabeth classifies many types of relationships in her book including karmic relationships in which one works with another partner to over come a particular issue.
    no, really, …, You asked how I know I met my twin flame. I don’t but I highly suspect it. When we first saw each other there was an electricity to our glaze that very much surprised me. Also during a grueling break up I came across this information in which I saw as an omen affirming what I had been going through. Our relationship was intense from the day we met to the day it ended and is still a powerful experience that resonates with me even today. I feel our relationship sparked more spiritual growth than any relationship romantic or otherwise I had ever been in. When I was around her the whole world would literally become brighter & I was totally comfortable being around her regardless of whether or not sex was involved. The love I felt for her was so intense that it literally became a vehicle of spiritual mysticism. In essence when you experience it you will know, or at least like I have will strongly suspect it.
    tinu n, research it and find out for yourself. Start by clicking on the link I provided. I’m not sure she provides her resource but I’m almost positive this is an esoteric Hindu concept. If you know anything about Hinduism you would know it is vast and varied. It is almost impossible to keep inventory of it all.

    Answer by sonamspongebob
    your in luck i’m punjabi well only half but learned a lot so the golden temple is in armitsar and guru nank found khalsaHe who keeps alight the unquenchable torch of truth, and never swerves from the thought of One God; he who has full love and confidence in God and does not put his faith, even by mistake, in fasting or the graves of Muslim saints, Hindu crematoriums, or Jogis places of sepulchre; he who recognises the One God and no pilgrimages, alms-giving, non-destruction of life, penances, or austerities; and in whose heart the light of the Perfect One shines, – he is to be recognised as a pure member of the Khalsa” (Guru Gobind Singh, 33 Swaiyyas)

    The word “Khalsa” means “pure”, Khalsa’s are Sikhs which have undergone the sacred Amrit Ceremony initiated by the 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. The Khalsa order was initially created on Baisakhi Day March 30 1699, with Guru Gobind Singh baptizing 5 Sikhs and then in turn asking the five Khalsa’s to baptize him. Following this the Guru personally baptized thousands of men and women into the Khalsa order. The Khalsa baptism ceremony is undertaken as part of ones own personal spiritual evolution when the initiate is ready to fully live up to the high expectations of Guru Gobind Singh. All Sikhs are expected to be Khalsa or be working towards that objective.

    The Khalsa baptism ceremony involves drinking of Amrit (sugar water stirred with a dagger) in the presence of 5 Khalsa Sikhs as well as the Guru Granth Sahib. The initiate is instructed in the following; (a) You shall never remove any hair from any part of thy body, (b) You shall not use tobacco, alcohol or any other intoxicants, (c) You shall not eat the meat of an animal slaughtered the Muslim way, (d) You shall not commit adultery. The initiate is required to wear the physical symbols of a Khalsa at all times as well as follow the Khalsa Code of Conduct.

    Quotes from the Gurus about Who is a Sikh

    Comments from Sikh Scholars about who is a Sikh

    Spiritual Evolution
    Stage 1: Manmukh
    A person who is self-centered and only thinks about himself and the material world around him and is totally oblivious to God.
    Stage 2: Sikh
    Anyone who sets out on the path of learning and meets the specific definition of a Sikh as appears in the Reht Maryada (Official Code of Conduct).
    Stage 3: Khalsa
    Total dedication to Sikhism. One who has has shed his ego and personality and truly honours the memory of Guru Gobind Singh through his actions and deeds.
    Stage 4: Gurmukh
    One who has achieved mukhti (salvation) and is totally God-centered.

    The Physical Articles of Faith

    Kesh:
    Long unshorn hair. A symbol of spirituality. The Kesh reminds a Khalsa to behave like the Guru’s. It is a mark of dedication and group consciousness, showing a Khalsa’s acceptance of God’s will. Long hair have long been a common element of many spiritual prophets of various religions such as Jesus, Moses and Buddha.

    Dastar:
    Turban. A symbol of royalty and dignity. Historically the turban has been held in high esteem in eastern and middle eastern cultures. Guru Gobind Singh transformed this cultural symbol into a religious requirement so that the Khalsa would always have high self-esteem. It differentiates Sikhs from other religious followers who keep long hair but wear caps or keep matted hair. The turban cannot be covered by any other head gear or replaced by a cap or hat. The turban is mandatory for Sikh men and optional for Sikh women.

    Kangha:
    Comb. A symbol of hygiene and discipline as opposed to the matted unkept hair of ascetics. A Khalsa is expected to regularly wash and comb their hair as a matter of self discipline.

    Kara:
    Steel bracelet. A symbol to remind the wearer of restraint in their actions and remembrance of God at all times.

    Kachha:
    Drawers. A symbol signifying self control and chastity.

    Kirpan:
    Ceremonial Sword. A symbol of dignity and the Sikh struggle against injustice. It is worn purely as a religious symbol and not as a weapon.
    The Khalsa Code of Ethical Conduct: A Brief Overview
    See Reht Maryada category for greater details

    The Sikh will worship only God. They will not set up any idols, gods, goddesses or statues for worship nor shall they worship any human being.

    The Sikh will believe in no other religious book other than the Holy Guru Granth Sahib, although they can study other religious books for acquiring knowledge and for comparative study.

    The Sikh will not believe in castes, untouchability, magic, omens, amulets, astrology, appeasement rituals, ceremonial hair cutting, fasts, frontal masks, sacred thread, graves and traditional death rites.

    The Khalsa will remain distinct by wearing the Five K’s but shall not injure the feelings of others professing different religions.

    The Khalsa will pray to God before starting any work. This will be over and above his usual prayers.

    Although a Sikh may learn as many languages as he likes, he must learn Punjabi and teach his children to learn to read it.

    Every male should add “Singh” after his name and every female Khalsa should add “Kaur” after her name. They must never remove hair from any part of their bodies.

    Drugs, Smoking and Alcohol are strictly forbidden for Sikhs

    Khalsa men and women will not make holes in their ears or nose and shall have no connection whatsoever with those who kill their daughters. Sikh women will not wear a veil.

    A Sikh must live on honest labour and give generously to the poor and the needy thinking all the time that whatever he gives is given to the Guru.

    A Sikh must never steal or gamble.

    Except for the kacha and the turban there is no restrictions on the dress of a Khalsa, but a Khalsa’s dress should be simple and modest.

    When a Khalsa meets another Khalsa he will greet him by saying, Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh (The Khalsa belong to God, Victory belongs to God)
    Guru Nanak
    Guru Amar Das
    Guru Ram Das
    Guru Arjan Dev
    Guru Haragobind Raj
    Guru Har Raj
    Guru Har Krishan
    Guru Tegh Bahadur
    Guru Gobind Singh
