  1. Yeah I heard a nihang about this one time. He said the Singhs that seemed weak were made to drink alcohol before battle. The others drank sukha. Do they do anything before consuming alcohol, like a maryada or something?
  2. What does the word mallech mean here? The original meaning (from ancient Sanskrit texts) of this word can be translated as "barbarian", however it is possible that new meanings were attached to the word overtime.
  3. He was talking about Nihangs in relation to Shiv ji and the story of where Shiv ji first ate cannabis. He was basically discussing the origin of Sukha in Satyug.
  4. I should watch that show, lol. Everyone recommends it to me.
  5. I heard and read that Singhs were present in Satyug. I was watching this video of a Nihang Singh and he mentioned Satyugi Nihang Singhs. Can someone please shed some more light on this? Who were Satyugi Singhs? Has this been recorded in any texts?
  6. I think drinking alcohol near your death will definitely result in rebirth in a lower family. I think that this sakhi portrays both things, namely, being born in a Muslim family would be lower than a Hindu and also that alcohol can bring about bad karma.
  7. Mardana ji was a yogi in his past life, however due to drinking alcohol (for medical purposes near his death) he was born into a Muslim family. Nonetheless, god granted his desire to meet god. Therefore, he became a Muslim due to a mistake. As for bhagat fareed ji, it could be argued that he was a Sikh.
  8. Bro, it's not hard to believe at all that guru ji would say that Muhammad's religion is a bhoot religion. @Ragmaala This is the reason: This a translation from bhavishya puran. God is great, however due to our short comings we fail to understand.
  9. I think it is a western influence. Missionaries that are influenced by western science, "logic", etc. always promote single scripture, one rehit maryada, and stuff. They don't understand the importance of sampardas, etc.
  10. Are you sure that Guru Nanak actually took birth and died? In reality, death and birth are non-existent one who knows this neither takes birth nor dies. The Almighty lord who is ever present can take any form he wishes. Our bodies sustain energy of the almighty, this is known as Atma (is Atma really different from Parmatma?). At the end of the day this creation is an illusion by God, hence, God can do what he wishes as he controls the creation. Through worship alone one comes to experience him. With devotional worship one sheds ego and experiences the creator, knowing this world to be false thus forsaking it, s/he unites with Parmatama. Therefore, worship should not be forsaken, however, devotion and love should be present within ones heart if s/he desires to obtain God.
  11. Things that are beyond the perception or understanding of our untrained mind, by us are termed "mystical" and "supernatural". Since people as such are unable to comprehend them they think they were made up by someone or are false. The trained and stilled mind knows that these things are the truth of the universe coming forth.
  12. Do share your thoughts on the above two tales and similarities and differences.
  13. Story of Allahdin: http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/burt1k1/tale30.htm Charitar #5:
  14. The original was written in Arabic. It might have been translated to Persian, though.
  15. There was a popular show called "Alif Layla" on TV, I remember watching it when I was young. So I think they were read in mughal India and probably afterwards, too.
  16. Apparently the original had 1000 tales. Source: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20101219080335AAKMNjE Doesn't really matter, though. We can still compare.
  17. Yes, she told Shahrayar half of the story each night. This made the Shah curious of the rest of the story so he did not behead her as he wanted to hear the rest. She repeated this for 1001 stories. When she had told 1001 tales she ran out of tales to tell, however by this time the Shah had fallen in love with her and spared her life.
