  1. Chandi is the jagatmata, the energy from which the universe was created. Durga is an expansion of chandi, she is present within all. She is the power or shakti of Akal Purakh. Chandi is merely one among her many names. She is the one that helps us move, think, grow, talk, etc. Lakshmi, Sarswati and Parvati are merely representations of her satto, rajo and tamo qualities, respectively. In reality, chandi is the feminine shakti form of Akal Purukh, hence they are the same. Many believe that Chandi di vaar, Shastar naam mala, etc. are about Durga, in reality guru ji is praising the divine shakti, as discussed above, that resides in Durga, Kali, shastar, astar, rakatbeej, etc. not just Durga alone. Just like how Lakshmi is the personification of Vishnu ji's shakti, likewise Sarswati and parvati are of Brahma and Mahesh, respectively. Even so is Chandi/ Bhagauti/ Maya the personification of Vaheguru's Shakti. If you read chandi di vaar, it says "Khanda prithmai saaj kai, jin sai(n)saar oopaiya. Brahma bisan saaj(eh) kudrat da khel rachaa(ai) baNaa(ai)aa." This tells that at the beginning of the creation, Vaheguru created the Khanda (referring to Chandi, feminine Shakti form of Akal Purukh), from which shakti the trinity, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh came into being. Now it makes sense that guru ji wrote such banis so that we could plead the mercy of Chandi so that she may reside in us and shastars so that we may gain victory on the field of battle. Those who are familiar with Chandi di Vaar may understand this, "taitho(n) hi bal raam l(ai) naal baNaa da(h)sir ghaa(ai)yaa, taitho(n) hi bal krisan l(ai) Kans kesi(n) paka(rh) giraa(ai)yaa." this is referring to the shakti of Akal Purukh, Chandi. Bal=shakti, hence Ram and Krishan also took shakti from Akal Purukh in order to defeat Ravan and Kans, respectively. Even though no one can describe Chandi as she is beyond description, may this help in getting a vague idea of Jagatmata Chandika.
  2. Sorry about that mistake on my part. BTW, thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge with me. I really appreciate it.
  3. A lot of missionaries you got there, except for baba banta singh ji from DDT.
  4. That guy is a straight up missionary. IMO he is worse than dhadri.
  5. Yeah, they do indeed sound feminine. I'm not 100% sure if they are mares, though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surya This site, https://www.speakingtree.in/allslides/why-7-horses-for-the-chariot-of-sun/40234 has some interesting information of surya dev and his horses. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aruṇa According to wikipedia, Arun is the "personification of the reddish glow light of the rising Sun". http://www.apamnapat.com/entities/Aruna.html http://www.santosha.com/philosophy/gita-chapter10.html No, problem brother, happy to share.
  6. I think when bhai randhir singh ji says the "gurmat Anhad naad" he means the kirtan from sachkhand heard after opening of dasam duar, in later stages. While "yogic Anhad Naad" probably means the sound of Om which is called the primordial sound in yoga. It is claimed that Om is the sound of the beginning of the Universe by the yogis. I might be wrong, though. Feel free to correct me.
  7. 1) My mind is settled at my ears but the sounds merge in the middle of my head at times, I hear different sounds at different places, e.g. I normally hear the drum in the centre, the bells are heard everywhere, etc. I mean, I do hear them everywhere but specific sounds are more prominent in specific areas. Therefore, I do hear them simultaneously or together, merged into one sound. 2) What are the other two things? I think I know which pavan shabad you are talking of, they're like the high pitched frequencies that vary at times. Those don't really have the same magnetism as what I hear. The sounds really draw my attention whereas, the frequencies or pavan shabads did not.
  8. Yeah, I've been hearing the 5 shabad in unison non-stop. So it just happens for a short time and one shall hear the Anhad toor? Can you explain the Anhad toor in more detail, please? Thanks, man.
  9. I guess it's just a stage in spiritual progress. One day I was just sitting and I happened to see a light around my sister. Then I saw it appearing around others. I also checked my hand and it was there.
  10. Yeah, bro. You right. But it not whaam, lol. Yeah, man don't worry too much about 'em. It's all good :-).
  11. Thanks, veer ji. I learnt Punjabi by reading paath, lol. I would look at the romanisation and compare it to the Punjabi version and started to pick up the letters and stuff. You can also use apps to learn it, though. But the first way is the best, lol.
  12. Here are some PDF's of some interesting books. You are also welcome to contribute to this thread by adding PDF's of educational books.

  13. This is so old. I think if sant ji did not tell him about cancer it was for a deeper reason, most likely to obey hukam of Vaheguru. I think not many people are able to understand this and thus labelled him as "pakhandi". I've had his darshan before and he is a brahmgiani, such a loving soul. I found this on twitter, the post by "Janaki Mohapatra" explains why Sant Baba Ajit Singh Ji Hansali Wale meant a lot to Yuvraj Singh.
  14. It sounds like a waste of money, to be honest. You see, auras are greatly influenced by a person's emotions and physical state, when I first started to see them it really hit me that their colours would change when a person's mood changed. I was easily able to work out how a person felt, so for example if you feel down and you were to click a picture you'd probably get dark colours like dark blue (uncertainty about the future), dark yellow (tired, worn out), etc. So, I wouldn't really worry about it.
  15. @dalsingh101 This website might help. https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/cat-care/general-cat-care
  16. Google's definition of religion is as follows: religion rɪˈlɪdʒ(ə)n/ noun the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods. "ideas about the relationship between science and religion" synonyms: faith, belief, divinity, worship, creed, teaching, doctrine, theology; More a particular system of faith and worship. plural noun: religions "the world's great religions" a pursuit or interest followed with great devotion. "consumerism is the new religion" IMHO, I think that eastern "religions", as they are described by most, are not religions but rather a way of living or dharam. Be it Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism, etc. are based around philosophy, dharam, enlightenment, etc. "Buddhism is based on dharma where the goal is to liberate oneself from the suffering of the Earth. It was initiated in the 5th century BCE by the famous Siddhartha Gautama. Hinduism is based around the beliefs of dharma, samsara, karma, and moksha. It is one of the oldest religions in the world and bases its teachings around the Bhagavad Gita. Sikism is the belief of preaching to enlightenment based on honesty, giving, and chanting for God. Jainism is based around the need to be pure, free of violence in all aspects of life." "Some of the religions that are practiced in the Western world include Christianity, Catholicism, Puritanism, Protestantism, Judaism, and Evangelicalism. The locations these religions are practiced depends upon their historical impact by followers of particular religions. Western religions are not driven so much by certain principles and ideals, rather everyday good and bad behavior to reach Heaven." http://www.differencebetween.net/miscellaneous/religion-miscellaneous/difference-between-eastern-religions-and-western-religions/ Therefore, it can be concluded that eastern "religions" are not as much "religions", in the western sense, they are more a way of living. Whereas, western religions are qualified to be called religions as they are based around faith and worship rather than philosophy and dharam. It is worth noting that in India at least, "religion" is called "dharam" (piety or duty) and "panth" (path). For the lack of a better word, these are translated to "religion" in English. Hence, Sikhism, along with other eastern dharams are not religions, in the western sense at least.
  17. ਅਸਪਤਿ means, "lord of horses", just like Ram Chander ji was called purushottam- meaning "best among men", Uchchaihshravas is best among horses hence, ਅਸਪਤਿ. So, in reality, that title does not have so much to do with Surya Dev as Uchchaihshrava. In olden times kings who possessed fine horses, like the king of Kekeya would be called "ashwapati", the original word from where ਅਸਪਤਿ came. "Uccaiḥ-śravas [from uccaiḥ aloft, high above + śravas ear] Long-eared, he who hears what is above, one having spiritual or inner hearing; the white horse of Indra, one of the 14 precious things that issued from the waters churned by the gods in Hindu legend, regarded as the prototype and king of horses. In this connection one is reminded of the many statues of the buddhas with pendant ears, symbolizing a spiritual power—he who hears the cries of all." https://www.wisdomlib.org/definition/uccaihshravas
  18. @paapiman Uchchaihshravas is the 7-headed horse. So he is ਅਸਪਤਿ, krishan ji in bhagwat gita said that Uchchaihravas is the best of horses. I am Vishnu among the sons of Aditi, I am the radiant sun among the luminaries, I am Marici among the gods of wind, I am the moon among the stars. I am the Sama Veda among the Vedas; I am Indra among the Devas; I am the mind among the senses; I am the consciousness in living beings. I am Shiva among the Rudras; Kubera among the Yakshas and demons; I am the fire among the Vasus; And I am Meru among the mountain peaks. Among the priests, O Arjuna, Know Me to be the chief, Brihaspati. Among the army generals, I am Skanda; I am the ocean among the bodies of water. I am Bhrigu among the great sages; I am the monosyllable OM among the words; I am Japa among the Yajna; And I am the Himalaya among the immovables. I am the Peepal tree among the trees, Narada among the sages, Chitraaratha among the Gandharvas, And sage Kapila among the Siddhas. Know Me as Uchchaihshrava, Born at the time of churning the ocean for getting the nectar, among the horses; Airaavata among the elephants; And the King among men.
  19. @Soulfinder I don't think we'll have much luck finding katha of Gobind Gita, since it was removed from dasam granth saroops (except for historical Patna sahib bir) in the 19th century by Sodhak Comitee. However, I did find Dasam Granth katha by Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Bhinderanwale, I'll listen to it when I get time. I'll post it here if there is katha of gobind gita in there.
