    Exactly. They studied at western institutions that are infiltrated with leftists and their degenerate ideologies that seek to bring down every Religion as only a feel good,self help,be a better person,be good to everyone,club void of any spirituality,mysticism or divinity.You speak against them and you will be accused of "Hate". At the very basic of their problem is the 'Kala Engrej' mentality. These are sufferers of 'Internalized Racism'. They look up at the more successful races who have destroyed and liberalized their own religion and wish they were like them at the same time kicking and oppressing their own race to show their masters that they are somewhat better than the rest and have 'evolved'.These are very dangerous people that I predict one would contribute in a major Genocide against Sikhs. Their arrogance and internalized racism will reach a point where they will decide to provoke violence against Mainstream Sikhs to wipe us out and leave only them.You can already see their minions spewing extreme hate all over the internet.

    Wanted to share this little info with you all. in some of the charitars we have seen how people caught up in a potentially fatal situation have been able to escape by way of ruse, ie hiding and being transported out of danger. I have been reading "Ghost wars" which is about the CIA and Afghan-Soviet war. Saw this and wanted to share it with everyone here. It seems that this ploy seen several times in Sri CharitroPakhyan Granth is still in use.

    Good on you. I think non traditional teaching methods are better than the traditional ones myself.

    Battling Addiction with Gurbani

    You are right veer ji my speaking and listening skills in punjabi are really good as i always listen to punjabi material as the katha,kirtain deewans etc. So learning and many banis was a hard at the start but i got better using the audios and repeating after the sounds. It can be a bit off putting i do agree the way people teach but i am gonna download apps and look at videos for learning gurmukhi then see what happens.

    I think often the quality of the teaching is what puts people off or hinders them. Do consider trying again, but maybe approach the task in a different way than before. If you can already speak/pronounce words in Panjabi, at least a third of the work is done already.

    Yes veer ji its always best to ardas after doing paath simran. Its important as i heard a saakhi on Baba Harnam Singh Ji Rampurkhera Wale about the importance of doing ardas asap after any amount of simran paath etc.

    The Rt Hon Doctor karminder dhillon PHD Boston then writes: "The shabd is wholly spiritual. It uses multiple metaphors – marriage, junj, joree, daan, mighty human beings, power full beings etc etc. Guru ji also used IDIOMS. We need to understand the context of these metaphors and get to the spiritual messages. That is how we interpreted the entire Shabd as above. This particular verse is NO EXCEPTION. In English we may say SCORES come and DOZENS go. One score is 20. And one dozen is 12. This means whatever is being referred to comes and goes APLENTY. IT DOES NOT mean someone particular came in 1820 and went in 1912!!!! In our everyday language we say SAU AIYE TEY SAU GAYEY. SAU is one hundred. Or TEREY VARGEY KAYEE HAZAAR DEKHEY. Or TEREY VARGEY CHATEE (36) AIYEY. These numbers are used idiomatically to portray unspecific multitudes. The shabd uses the numbers BOTH idiomatically to portray MULTITIDES and poetically to be within the poetic confines of the verses before and after. ਆਵਨਿ ਅਠਤਰੈ ਜਾਨਿ ਸਤਾਨਵੈ ਹੋਰੁ ਭੀ ਉਠਸੀ ਮਰਦ ਕਾ ਚੇਲਾ ॥ Avan Athathrey Jaan Satanvey Hor Bhee Uthsee Marad Ka Chela. Avan – Coming. Athathrey – 78, metaphor for unspecified multiples. Jaan – Goes. Satanvey – 97; metaphor for unspecific multiples. Hor – More, Many, Others. Bhee – Also. Uthsee – Raise, Come to the forefront. Marad – Male, Masculine. Chela – Disciple, Follower, Believer, Worshipper. Unspecified Multiples Will Come and Multiple More Will Depart as Worshippers of Masculine Prowess. (Yet the Hukm of the Creator Will Remain as Permanent). " To me, this just sums up the clutching of straws to build up a straw man argument. Using a specific non rounded number is NOT part of everyday talk. We use, and indeed Gurbani uses numbers like a hundred, thousands, and lakhs etc. But it never uses numbers like 78, 97, 146, 2685, 743872 etc. Using rounded numbers to portray a particular aspect or point is normal in any language. But to try and use "78" and "97" for unspecified numbers is just nonsensical. But those rats like that admin aman on SPN live for this kind of nonsense. The great doctor then ends with some of his musings on what gurbani should be with : "COMMENT ON THE NOTION OF SARAB SANJHEE BANEE. When we say Gurbanee is NEVER occasion, location, time or person specific – we are saying the messages are NOT meant for a particular location, occasion, time or individual. We are saying ALL of Gurbani is meant for ALL of humanity for ALL times." Again this is not bourne out by the inclusion of Ramkali Sadd. Although there is great teachings in that shabad for the benefit of humankind, there is no denying that the writing was an occasion and person specific event. I wonder why it is, that these PHD's and ilk feel that there is a need to distort each and every aspect of Gurmat to their own particular thoughts. We had Angy on here some months ago doing it, and they have no shame in doing it.

    Good work Amardeep. I have Chanaka-niti, and read it years ago. Maybe in time, i will have another look at it.

    In general I think we need to widen our understanding of the term “rajniti”. I think it’s wider than “politics” and “governance” as it is usually understood. Kavi Sainapat uses the word in his Chanakya niti translation (Bahu shaastra avilok kai sundar bachan nikaar, Raajniti sanbuuh ko barnan karo bithaar). Yet his book doesn’t deal with politics the way we would classify a book on politics today. It is more about psychology, ethics, schrewdness, being aware, being sceptical etc. You don’t learn governance through it, but rather how to be a sovereign individual. And I think this is the understanding of rajniti at the time of Maharaj and it is in this light we should see the Charitro Pakhyan - a book on sovereignty rather than a book on politics/governance only. Politics is just one ang of Rajniti which is a much wider term than what you have in the English language. Just some thoughts after going through the Chanakya in recent months. I have bought 3-4 different punjabi translations of it that I will go through in the next few months to better understand the context of this kind of writings- which the Charitro Pakhyan is most likely a part of.

    Here's another interesting little known twist in the background of Bahar Danesh. According to this footnote in the translation by Jonathan Scott (where he castigates a previous attempt at translation by Dow), it seems that the original Persian text (by Inyahat Allah) mentions a young Brahmin being the source for the tales in the work? I'm not sure if this young Brahmin was a real person or a fictional character in the narrative?

    This is one of the tweets which she posted: Quote Bible Distribution in Middle of road ....we need to help ... take all the bibles from him....each and every copy ..... so that he is not able to harass any more people .... Paid Christian Missionaries Unquote What is wrong with Bible distribution? How does Bible distribution equate to harassment? As long as he is not forcing people to take them, it should be fine. Doesn't this country, Hindustan, claim to be secular? Bhul chuk maaf

    It's not ABC simple bhai ji. Lots of factors accounted for Sikh success in the past, including quality training.

    So our Gurus taught us to be brave, optimistic and active in the most dire of circumstances - that's something at the core of Sikhi in my opinion.

    There is a British source from the late 1800s that says the Charitro Pakhyan teaches how to be a just ruler. Here you have a direct link between CP and rulership (rather than it being erotic tales) I'll try and post the quote when I've got acces to my notes.

    How comes you jump on Prem Sumarag when it comes to putting the boot into women, but struggle to accept the contents of the same work when it talks about eating meat and fish bro? In this day and age you can't avoid women like the plague. You will meet and have to interact with them - especially at work.

    I had a flick through a bit of the translation by the gora. The original is highly flowery in its language. One change Dasam Granth made to this was to use more precise and less flamboyant language. Again this fits into the common Sikh understanding that Guru ji was making his Sikhs highly literate and facilitating access to literature for the masses and not just the elites. It looks like elements of the original texts that were considered superfluous (i.e. not useful to the needs of Sikhs) were jettisoned. You hear the same thing with the Chandhi prayers, where superfluous elements in the original Markandaya Puranas were jettisoned.

    Excellent work there Dal. It's very interesting to see that there were similiar works in Persian literature.
