Sikhs accept that life begins at conception. When will SikhNet stop promoting Yogi Bhajan nonsense about the soul entering the fetus of the mother at 120 days?

There are no references at all in Gurbani to this 120th day concept about the soul entering the fetus at 120 days. http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=669

Guruka Singh of SikhNet says: "Actually, this understanding (about the soul entering the fetus at 120 days) has been known and experienced from pre-vedic times, way before the Siri Guru Granth Sahib was compiled. It was assumed knowledge by the times of the Gurus since it had been known already for over 5,000 years. You can experience it yourself. Talk to a spiritual woman whose intuition is strong and who has been pregnant.."

Amar Prakash Singh of Austin, Texas replies: "This a very important question, because we don't take our answer from what was known in "pre-vedic times" or what was "assumed knowledge." The Granth is a total rejection of this Vedic or assumed knowledge.

Where we look for your answer is what Guru's taught about the subject.

On page 77, Guru Arjan wrote:

Siree Raag, Fifth Mehla:

In the first watch of the night, O my merchant friend, the Lord placed your soul in the womb. In the tenth month, you were made into a human being, O my merchant friend, and you were given your allotted time to perform good deeds. You were given this time to perform good deeds, according to your pre-ordained destiny. God placed you with your mother, father, brothers, sons and wife. God Himself is the Cause of causes, good and bad-no one has control over these things. Says Nanak, O mortal, in the first watch of the night, the soul is placed in the womb. ||1||

In Guru Arjan's day time was figured by the lunar calendar. So by the solar calendar, what the above states is that 9 months after the soul enters the womb (conception) you are born.

There are no references at all in Gurbani to this 120th day concept.
