A beautiful concept introduced by the 1st Sikh Guru – Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji- in the 1500’s, which indicates that there is only one single reality, and so only one God in which we are all one with everything.
Ek – translates into ‘One’
On- pronounced ‘Oang’ translates into ‘Creator’
Kar- translates into ‘Creation’
The sound ‘Oang’ and ‘Kar’ is a melody that manifests in billions of galaxies and universes. Sikhism ultimately states that everything gets merged back into this sound; and that this has happened countless times before. Similar to the ‘Om’ soundॐ , some consider it a variation.
Sikhism is one of the youngest major religions of the world that promotes equality, selfless service and meditation. Sikhism’s English translation of the holy scripture (Sri Guru Garanth Sahib) is placed in a palanquin at NASA as NASA’s scientists state it is full of information supporting the Big Bang Theory among others such as galaxies and eclipses.
Sikh philosophy also provides an insight into the expansion of the universe, “In so many ways, He has unfolded Himself. So many times, He has expanded His expansion. Forever and ever, He is the One, the One Universal Creator” (p. 276). It also states that everything within the creation contains vibrations and the frequencies of vibrating strings.
