  1. The names of the characters in the base story: The king, Chitar Singh (ਚਿਤ੍ਰ ਸਿੰਘ) means "Agile Tiger" The queen, Chitar mati (ਚਿਤ੍ਰਮਤੀ) means "Agile Intellect" The son, Hanuvant Singh (ਹਨਿਵਤਿ) means "The one with a long chin*" The wise minister, Tretiya means "The third one". * - Not sure about this one Bhul chuk maaf
  2. From a warrior's perspective, it is possible that Maharaaj is giving a tip to his warriors on assassination attempts on tyrants. Choosing a day like Holi (or any other festival), where the visibility could be an issue would be a great day to kill a dusht and then escape by deception. Bhul chuk maaf

    Summary findings of the Charitro Pakhyan

    @amardeep - Excellent work. Keep it up. Bhul chuk maaf
  4. You missed no.12 bro. ਨਰ ਨਾਰਿਨ ਮਿਲ ਖੇਲ ਰਚਾਯੋ ॥ Men and women together played ਫੂਲ ਪਾਨ ਕੈਫਾਨ ਮੰਗਾਯੋ ॥ They brought opium, betel leaves and alcohol ਦੁਹੂੰ ਓਰ ਨਵਲਾਸਿਨ ਮਾਰੈ ॥ Both the young ones (males and females) are throwing colors at each other ਮਧੁਰ ਮਧੁਰ ਧੁਨਿ ਗੀਤ ਉਚਾਰੈ ॥੧੨॥ They sing in melodious voices. Bhul chuk maaf
  5. Mahanand from Charitar#4 was also one-eyed. It is also possible that Maharaaj is giving updesh to handicap (physically or mentally) people (who are in powerful positions) that they must be extra careful in order to avoid deception. Bhul chuk maaf
  6. These three words are used again later in the Charitar. ਮਨ ਕ੍ਰਮ ਬਚ ਕਰਿ ਕੈ ਬਸਿ ਭਈ ॥ Again, it is possible that Maharaaj is trying to teach us to think (or discuss) an issue, before jumping to enact it. One characteristic of intellectually/spiritually weak people would be to act instantly on their impulses. This is the case with Chachar Mati in this Charitar, after she sees the handsome acrobat. Bhul chuk maaf
  7. Chachar Mati means "joyous singing intellect:. Mani Sen means "a proud army". Bhul chuk maaf
  8. ਰਮੀ ਜਾਰ ਸੌ ਰਾਇ ਕੀ ਆਖ ਅੰਬੀਰਹ ਡਾਰਿ ॥੩॥ The word "ਅੰਬੀਰਹ" means a colored powder. According to Niddar, it is a scented powder made by mixing musk, rose water, saffron and sandalwood. Bhul chuk maaf
  9. That's a great observation. There are two possibilities now: First one as you said. An unintended message coming out of the king's mouth, indicating his nature in general. Second, it is possible that the order has been changed to conform with grammar/poetry rules (Kaab Nijam). Bhul chuk maaf
  10. Niddar mentions in his translation that the king has realized that his son is innocent and decides to release his son at this point. Let's look at those verses again. The second verse has to be analyzed very deeply. ਚਿਤ੍ਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਮੰਤ੍ਰੀ ਸੌ ਕਹੀ ॥ Chitar Singh said to the minister ਹਮ ਤੇ ਸਕਲ ਕੁਕ੍ਰਿਯਾ ਰਹੀ ॥ There Raja Chiter Singh to the Minister, ‘Whatever you said, it has eliminated any treachery from my mind. (Bhindra) Chitar Singh then said to the Minister "I have done everything wrong" (Yours) I am free of all my evil deeds (Niddar) Because of you, I have avoided the evil deeds (of sentencing and killing my son)* ਤੁਮ ਜੋ ਹਮ ਸੌ ਬਚਨ ਉਚਾਰੇ ॥ (same translation as yours above) ਜਾਨੁਕ ਸੁਧਾ ਸ੍ਰਵਨ ਭਰਿ ਡਾਰੇ ॥੧॥ * - IMHO Bhul chuk maaf
  11. Spot on Paaji. Also, IMHO, the best thing one can do when having different sorts of spiritual experiences is to talk to a Brahamgyani or Gurmukhs of high avastha. Forums are good, but physical meetings with realized souls can be really helpful. For example, Brahamgyanis can actually see your Chakras (energy points) and then guide you in the right direction accordingly. There could be something wrong with your attitude/way of living, they can advise you on that too. Also, someone above mentioned about mental disturbance. This can happen if a person is not spiritually ready to absorb the vast amount of Naam energy. Solutions If you are not an Amritdhari (having spiritual experiences), you need to partake Amrit asap from five Rehatvaan Gurmukhs. Khande da amrit prepares a human body to absorb Naam energy. If you are an Amritdhari (involved in intense meditation) and feel that you are developing some kind of a mental illness, then seek advice of Brahamgyanis/Gurmukhs of high avastha. Bhul chuk maaf

    Sikh Censor Board

    Quote The Jathedar said in wake of unending controversies over movies made on Sikh religion or showing a Sikh character he would soon announce formation of a Sikh Censor Board, which would include representatives from the SGPC, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC), Sikh institutes, sects, Sant Samaj and filmmakers.

  13. Gurparsaad, Daas will get back to you by the end of the month. Bhul chuk maaf
