    Now please have some respect for yourself and correct this article.

    I am not so familiar with Punjabi. Please coordinate this with:

  3. godsoldier Says:

    The link I have presented to you and other readers is the link to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji – The Guru of the Sikhs, from where that whole Shabad was taken and then the last lines were changed.

    This article and that link you gave promotes Nirmala Devi. Which is fine if she needs the advertisement.

    I am merely pointing out to you that whoever wrote that article is wrong, simple, they have deliberately twisted words to promote themselves. Thats why I gave the original link.

    I am not bashing Nirmala Devi, I am only pointing out that she is wrong thats if she believes that.

    I have read that article before (link you gave me) and have emailed them before, pointing out their errors, seems like they have not learned anything. I guess they must be busy promoting themselves.

    If you want to learn Yoga, you seek a learned Yoga Master, correct?
    If you want to learn the Four Vedas, you seek a learned Acharya, a Guru.

    In the same way, If you want to learn about Guru Nanak Dev Ji, you ask a Khalsa Sikh, not Nirmala Devi.
    In the same way, if you want to learn about Muhammed, you ask a Muslim, not Nirmala Devi.

    You are still learning, learn to think for yourself, the Path to God is simple, you need to question everything and not just follow it blindly.


    my email address for any hate mail or questions.

  4. godsoldier Says:

    ps. The link gave to you also has the ENGLISH translation, you don’t need to know of Panjabi. Thats if you bothered to actually look at the link. Go on look at it.

    In fact why don’t you contact the admin guys at or about the article you have posted and nirmala devi and her claim that she was foretold in the sikh scriptures?

    you won’t, because people are afraid of the truth.

  5. Peter Says:

    Dear One,
    The statement “HE created Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva” is completely incorrect based on Devi-Bhagavata Purana .

    SHE is the creator of everything. 🙂

    “O Mother! Brahmâ, Visnu, Mahes’vara, Indra, Sûrya, Fire, Sarasvatî and other Regents of the Universe are all Thy creation; so none of them is superior to Thee.”
    56-57; THE FIRST BOOK, Chapter V, Devi-Bhagavata Purana by MahaRishi Veda Vyasa.

  6. godsoldier Says:

    Well then PETER, why don’t you quote from that book instead of quoting from Gurbani and twisting it?

    By twisting the truth and sticking an artists drawing of Guru Nanak Dev Ji maharaaj will not hide the TRUTH.

    I have exposed you for who you really are and that is a BLIND follower.

    If you have any sense you would take this article down.

    But you won’t, I know your kind.

    If you really want to get technical, Vaheguru, Allah, The Lord, God, Ishvara, whatever you call the almighty force which has created eveything, The CREATOR does not have a sex per say, as God (I will use this word for now) is formless, beyond brith, death, is self sustaining.

    The english translations which you rely on dilute the actual meaning.

    God isn’t a He or a She. You, Me and Nirmala Devi are FOOLS if we refer to the creator of the universe as a He or a She.

    PETER THINK WITH THAT BRAIN OF YOURS, You seem like a intelligent person, THINK, it is not a SIN to Question your Guru (Nirmala Devi)

  7. godsoldier Says:

    oh and putting smiling faces doesn’t make your false statements any truer.

  8. Peter Says:

    Dear I am my own guru and I respect every true guru as Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and others.

    The GOD Almighty has different aspects and our goal is to know these aspects.

    Looks like that you are not familiar with the words of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji:
    ਏਕਾ ਮਾਈ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਵਿਆਈ ਤਿਨਿ ਚੇਲੇ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ॥
    एका माई जुगति विआई तिनि चेले परवाणु ॥
    Ėkā mā▫ī jugaṯ vi▫ā▫ī ṯin cẖele parvāṇ.
    The One Divine Mother conceived and gave birth to the three deities.

  9. godsoldier Says:

    I am not here for a discussion about the infinite aspects of Vaheguru, sure, if you want to discuss, then you have my email.

    I have exposed your article to be false and manipulative, falsifying the TRUTH as per to how Gurbani presents it and has been doing so for the past 500+ years.

    You have two choices, either you continue to disrespect another faiths scriptures or you present it as it is, in its TRUE FORM, not what YOU THINK (which is disturbing).

    My job was to point out to you and other readers, that this article has been perverted by yourself and further this perversion has been promoted by Nirmala.

    Like I said before your article is incorrect, take it down, correct it and then put it up again.

    The Truth is still the Truth, no matter how much you twist it.

    This artcile have been doctored and should be corrected. By you saying that you are right, you are claiming that Sri Guru Granth Sahib is wrong. Is that what you are saying “Peter”?

    Because if you are, then you are openly disrespecting Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, which you have already done by posting this false article.

    I have nothing further to say on this, Vaheguru, God, Allah, Ishvara shall deal with you and you shall be dealt with.


  10. Peter Says:

    ਗਾਵੀਐ ਸੁਣੀਐ ਮਨਿ ਰਖੀਐ ਭਾਉ ॥
    गावीऐ सुणीऐ मनि रखीऐ भाउ ॥
    Gāvī▫ai suṇī▫ai man rakẖī▫ai bẖā▫o.
    Sing, and listen, and let your mind be filled with love.

  11. godsoldier Says:

    Mahal kumhal na jāṇnī mūrakẖ apṇai su▫ā▫e.
    The fools do not know the difference between good and bad; they are deceived by their self-interests.

    Anḏẖe aklī bāhre mūrakẖ anḏẖ gi▫ān.
    The blind fools have no wisdom at all; their understanding is blind.

    Mūrakẖ āp gaṇā▫iḏe mar jamėh ho▫e kẖu▫ār.
    The fools take pride in themselves, and are ruined in birth and death.

    and lastly

    Mūrkẖai nāl na lujẖī▫ai.
    Don’t argue with fools.

    This is my last post, I have said what I wanted, the rest I leave with Ishvaar.

  12. Peter Says:

    This is the truth:

    ਏਕਾ ਮਾਈ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਵਿਆਈ ਤਿਨਿ ਚੇਲੇ ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ॥
    एका माई जुगति विआई तिनि चेले परवाणु ॥
    Ėkā mā▫ī jugaṯ vi▫ā▫ī ṯin cẖele parvāṇ.

    The One Divine Mother conceived and gave birth to the three deities.
