some quotes that look like mayavada/sunyavada from sri guru grantha sahib available online at www.srigranth.org


u may be able to find quotes which look like they are calling krishna god but if my understanding of sikh philos is correct, when they use those names it refers to ekongkar wahe guru and not to nandanandana krishna

The Lord is fearless and formless; His Name is True (Guru Nanak Dev)

There were no tantras, no mantras and no hypocrisy; no one played the flute.... p1036 There was no love or devotion, no Shiva or Shakti - no energy or matter.

Through the Guru`s Teachings, Rama floated stones across the ocean. (Guru Nanak Dev)



p1037 In the Primal Void, the Infinite Lord assumed His Power. He Himself exercised His Creative Power, and He gazes upon His creation; from the Primal Void, He formed the Void. From this Primal Void, He fashioned air and water.....Your Light pervades fire, water and souls; Your Power rests in the Primal Void. From this Primal Void, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva issued forth. This Primal Void is pervasive throughout all the ages. That humble being who contemplates this state is perfect; meeting with him, doubt is dispelled....The Lord of this Primal Void is unseen, infinite and immaculate; He is absorbed in the Primal Trance of Deep Meditation....From this Primal Void, came the four sources of creation, and the power of speech...They were created from the Void, and they will merge into the Void. [ refer: p1035They issue forth from You, and merge again into You. (Guru Nanak Dev) ] p1038 From the Primal Void, the ten incarnations welled up....From the True Guru, contemplative meditation is obtained. And then, one dwells with the True Lord in His celestial home, the Primal State of Absorption in Deepest Samaadhi. The three qualities are pervasive; the Lord dwells in His home, the fourth state....p1039Above them is the Immaculate Lord, the One Universal Creator; they are lovingly absorbed in the profound, primal state of Samaadhi. p1040In the True Place, the Formless Lord abides.

By personally experiencing the Personality of the Guru, one`s own personality is uplifted, and one`s light merges into the Light. (Guru Amar Das)


p97 His light merges into the Light, and he finds peace. O servant Nanak, this is all the Extension of the One. (Guru Arjan Dev)


p111 The Messenger of Death does not draw near those who meditate on the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. Night and day, they are attuned to His Love; they are pleasing to the Lord. My God merges with them, and unites them in Union. His light merges and is absorbed into the Light, when he hears and merges in the Truth. (Guru Amar Das)

p1235Many Shivas sit in deep meditation. p1236Many beings take incarnation. Many Indras stand at the Lord`s Door.....Many miraculous Elysian trees, many Krishnas playing the flute. (Guru Arjan Dev)

Krishna grazed cows in Kaashi; through the humble servant of the Lord, these places became famous. (8, Malaar, Guru Ram Das)



p1156 He created millions of incarnations of Vishnu. (Guru Arjan Dev)

p504He created air, water and fire, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva - the whole creation. (Guru Nanak Dev)




p1136 Setting aside all other days, it is said that the Lord [govinda] was born on the eighth lunar day. Deluded and confused by doubt, the mortal practices falsehood. The Lord is beyond birth and death. You prepare sweet treats and feed them to your stone god. God is not born, and He does not die, you foolish, faithless cynic! You sing lullabyes to your stone god - this is the source of all your mistakes. Let that mouth be burnt, which says that our Lord and Master is subject to birth. He is not born, and He does not die; He does not come and go in reincarnation. The God of Nanak is pervading and permeating everywhere. (Guru Arjan Dev)


p1038God is compassionate; He does not come or go in reincarnation....The world is a reflection of Him; He has no father or mother. He has not acquired any sister or brother. (Guru Nanak Dev)





p1153 Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are diseased; the whole world is diseased. (Guru Nanak Dev)


p908 Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are manifestations of the One God. He Himself is the Doer of deeds. (Guru Nanak Dev)


p518 Shiva and Vishnu, and their incarnations, chant the Lord`s Praise with their mouths, (Guru Arjan Dev)


p559 The wise one, Shiva, remains absorbed in himself, but he is engrossed in dark passions and excessive egotism. Vishnu is always busy reincarnating himself - who will save the world? (Guru Amar Das)


p735 Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva suffer from the disease of the three gunas - the three qualities; they do their deeds in egotism. The poor fools do not remember the One who created them; this understanding of the Lord is only obtained by those who become Gurmukh. (Guru Ram Das)


p852 Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva wander in the three qualities, while their egotism and desire increase. (Guru Amar Das)


p909 The three forms of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are trapped in the three qualities, lost in confusion. (Guru Amar Das)

from http://www.info-sikh.com/VVPage2.html dasam granth by guru gobind singh:


The Lord Akal creates millions of Krishna, annihilates them and recreates them. Some hang stones as gods around their necks, while others erroneously call Mahesh 'God' I have discarded all these false religions and am of the firm view that He who is the creator of the Universe, is the only Lord. Everyone is caught in the noose of Death, no Rama or prophet can escape from it. All of them who made grand claims of being Avtars of God died repentant. Why doest not thou, O, hapless being seek the shelter of the One Lord. (15th swayya)


I do not seek the blessings of Ganesh, I do not worship Krishna or Vishnu. I do not recognise them. I am engrossed in the loving devotion of my Lord alone. The Lord of Death, Akal, is my refuge and He saves me is all tribulations. (Krishan Avtar, 434)




The Lord first created Khanda, the double edged sword and then his manifest world. Having created Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, He created the entire play of Kudrat (manifest world). He created the oceans, mountains, earth and sky which stands above, unsupported by any pillars. He created both gods(deities) and demons and then created polemic. It was You who created Durga so as to destroy the demons. Rama also took strength from you to kill Ravan with his arrow. Krishan also got strength from You and thus threw down Kansa by his hair. Many great deities and ascetics underwent hard austerities, but none could fathom thy greatness


http://www.bsingh.dsl.pipex.com/khalsa/news56.htm dasam granth

guru gobind singh: Say if Krishan were the Ocean of Mercy, why should the hunter's arrow have struck him? If he can save other families, why did he destroy his own? Say why did he who called himself the eternal and the unconceived, enter into the womb of Devaki? Why did he who had no father or mother call Vasudev his father?" (33 Swayyas, no.14.) "Why call Shiv God and why speak of Brahma as God? God is not Ram Chander, Krishan, or Vishnu who you suppose to be lords of the world. Sukhdev, Parasar, and Vyas erred in abandoning the One God and worshipping many gods. All have set up false religions; I in every way believe that there is but One God. (33 Swayyas, no.15)


dasam granth http://www.geocities.com/jeetkanwar/dgaud.htm


He created millions of kind Indras; He has created numerous Brahmas, Vishnus, Ramas, Krishnas and Mohammads; without devotion none is acceptable to Him. 38.

(He has created) numerous seas, mountains and Sumeras; numerous Machhas, Katchhas and Shehnagas; numerous gods etc and princes; numerous incarnations of Krishnas and Vishnus 39 Numerous Indras sweep at His door; several are the Brahmas and Vedas; there are numerous trivial forms of Shiva; there are numerous handsome Ramas and Krishnas. 40.




If God is 'Narayan' then every thing living in water (Narayan), like Kutchh, Muchh and octopus etc will also become 'God'; like wise lotus is also 'lotus in navel' or 'God'. If Krishna is Gujjar (grazer of herds) then all gujjars will become Krishnas. If He is Rikhikesh then many have assumed this name also. If His Name is Madhav then black bee is also called madhav; if His Name is Kanahya then spider is also called kanahya; if He killed Kans then messenger of death should also be called 'killer of Kans'. (Meaning thereby that by adopting Godly names one can't become God.) Fools speak out foolishly but can't go deep and understand the spirit, hence do not worship Him alone Who preserves all. 74

p 727 The True Creator Lord is diffused into His creation; He is not just the dark-skinned Krishna of legends. ||2|| (10, Tilang, Saint Kabir)



p 1374 Kabeer, one is known to have been touched by the Guru, only when his emotional attachment and physical illnesses are eradicated. (13, Salok, Saint Kabir)


He is not burned by pleasure or pain, and so he becomes the Lord Himself. ||189|| (13, Salok, Saint Kabir)


Kabeer, it does make a difference, how you chant the Lord`s Name, `Raam`. This is something to consider. (14, Salok, Saint Kabir)


Everyone uses the same word for the son of Dasrath and the Wondrous Lord. ||190|| (14, Salok, Saint Kabir)


Kabeer, use the word `Raam`, only to speak of the All-pervading Lord. You must make that distinction. (15, Salok, Saint Kabir)


One `Raam` is pervading everywhere, while the other is contained only in himself. ||191|| (15, Salok, Saint Kabir)

yogi bhajan lecture archive



yogi bhajan: When I become zero, the One comes to my aid. It becomes ten. It is called the Law of Completion. Law of Completion is when you became Krishna, Kar-ish-na, you become zero. Krishna means zero. Ra-e-ma, Rama comes. Or you become Rama, Ra-e-ma, Rama means one. Krishna follows. Those words which say, "Lord Krishna, Lord Rama," doesn't mean anything. Actually thing sound current is, Krishna where entire universe to become shuniaa, zero, and Rama where one has created the sun and the moon. One created the duality and where the creation has come to zero. These are the two words



yogi bhajan: you are a human yogi. Things must shake you -- accept them. Accept negativity. Accept loneliness. Accept....you are all afraid of...everybody tells me, "I am lonely." Oh God, you cannot relax, not being lonely. The only thing which today cannot be taught by any wise man is the Parthahar. When totality can be brought into absolutely defined zero, to shunya, the entire concept of Krishna, the Lord of the Gopis and God of Incarnation and he has already been incarnated 10 times. He's going to be eleven times, and everybody.....Forget about all that. The word is "Krishna." Kar-ish-un. "Kar" means the creativeness. The entire dialogue and mono-dialogue, or multi-dialogue of the creative universe. Out of that, when it comes to shuniaa, it comes to zero, that is Krishna



yogi bhajan: But the rhythmic Naad of the Shabd Guru engages and synchronizes the flow of thoughts. The pulse of the atoms of sound produce a pattern of energy that structures the space of the mind to link with the Shabd. This produces an active stillness, a shuniya, a zero-point in consciousness. In that stillness you are like an instrument perfectly played in an orchestra. Your instrument merges into the larger tune



yogi bhajan: There is a Hindu God called Krishna. Actually the word is "Kar a shuna". "Kar" means creation, "a" means happen, "shuna" means where zero happens, where everything comes to stillness. You will ask about this Hindu God Ram. Word is "Ra e ma". One who created the moon and the sun



yogi bhajan: ...If you come to the sophistication of knowing what life is, you will understand the life has to come, you have to come, to shuniaa. You have to come to "Krishna." Kaar-i-shuniaa. Where the whole Prakirtee becomes zero. Krishna. "Hari Krishna Hari Krishna Hari Krishna." Do you understand what you are saying?

yes, kabir and sikhsim believe god has no form.

they reject moorti pooja.

sikhs also do not believe in vedic rituals.


kabir did not start a sampradaya, but his fan's started later. it is known ans bhakta sampradaya.

all the kabir's follors use Bhakta as their last name.


Similalry most jains, rather many jains, use Jain as their last name.
