  1. Really sad to hear this news today as he was one of the best raagis


    Padma Shri awardee Bhai Nirmal Singh dies after testing positive for Covid-19



    Bhai Nirmal Singh Khalsa, 67, a Padma Shri awardee and a former hazoori ragi (Gurbani exponent) at Golden Temple, passed away after a heart attack at 4.30am on Thursday, a day after he was diagnosed with coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

    Amritsar civil surgeon Dr Prabhdeep Kaur Johal said he was put on ventilator on Wednesday night after his condition worsened due to his bronchial asthma.

    With his death, the toll due to Covid-19 in Punjab has risen to six.

    Bhai Nirmal Singh was referred to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital (GNDH) from the local Shri Guru Ram Das Hospital on March 30 after he complained of breathlessness.

    “He visited England in November. A health department team visited his house on March 3 after we got the information that two guests – his uncle and aunt – from the US visited him. They were found asymptomatic. When the home quarantine period of the guests was over on March 17, they were found asymptomatic. Bhai Nirmal Singh then went to Chandigarh for a kirtan samagam on March 19 where over 100 people gathered,” Dr Johal said.

    “He tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday. He may have caught the infection during his trip to Chandigarh. He died of sudden cardiac arrest on Thursday,” she said.

    so what if the panj pyararay sewak practises jhatka maryada but then got to a place where meat is served??????

    Veer ji that is a very good question because its hard to work out as its not written on anyones face who practises jhatka and doesn't as nobody is a mahapursh with antarjamat.


    Secondly if they the member does do jathka then he shouldn't being going to places which serve meat sharaab etc. As i have seen 2 people who serve as panj pyare that went to a party with meat sharaab and the gurdwara commitee where all drinking alcohol and eating meat apart from those 2 guys. 3rd guy kept a cat in his house feeding it meat.

  3. Getting darshan of a puran bramgyani is really really difficult as its hard to find in this kalyug with so many artificial sant baba that its hard to even spot a karnai wale sant. But a puran bramgyani do exist but they stay gupt and its hard to find one.


    2nd is the sevadars they are like dictators as they only like rich influental people to vist and give them more access to mahapursh compared to normal sangat whom they don't respect at all which can be seen in ithasic historical gurdwara sahibs in india.


    Also as mentioned its based on ones karams and bhagati levels that ones gets a chance to meet a mahapursh.


    Another difficult task to get kamai of a mahapurshs bachan as that is not easy.


    I have heard in katha about how abhyasis who stand in the line when waiting to see a mahapursh. The mahapursh can see the aura of the gurmukh and do call them over from the line whilst waiting.


    I have met and heard saakhis of how people i know through my parents family have had darshan and bachan with Sant Baba Isher Singh Ji Rara Sahib, Baba Puran Singh Ji Kerchio Wale,Baba Mihan Singh Ji, Sant Harnam Singh Ji Rampur Khera Wale, Baba Isher Singh Ji Nanaksar etc.

    Nai veerji, i only did it for 3 weeks back in 2016.  Thats the reason I started sehaj path of Dasam bani so I can cover all banis atleast once every 4-6 months.   

    Veer ji thats is a long time now since you last read Chandi Chirtar 2 in sehaj paath form. It is easier for you veer ji as you can read it in punjabi script so doing a sehaj paath is really good. 3 weeks is a good time as you did have a connection with the paath as it was a sehaj paath with doing 1,2 angs a day which does help cover all of the banis in the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Ji.


    First time i read back in oct 2018 took me 4 days using a 66 mins mp3 as it was really hard getting a good paathi for the bani as i didn't understand nearly any of it in the start.

    That’s awesome veere ! Its all Guru jis grace he works in mysterious ways🙏🏽🙏🏽

    Thanks veer ji its all Guru Sahib Jis kirpa as i remember i never even could go past the 2nd pauri of Jap Ji Sahib before. You are right veer ji Guru Sahib Ji does work in mysterious ways waheguru dhan sacha patashah.

  6. @Ragmaalaveer ji thats really nice to hear i do wish i could do sehaj paath but at the moment i am bit stuck as i can't read or write in Punjabi. All of my banis that i have done so far which i never dreamed of are in english roman text which took me many hours ,months to learn using audio tracks from panj bani nitnem to other recent dasam banis mentioned on here. 


    Its really good and i do wish you chardikala and kirpa for the sehaj paath as its a really good step.


    I used to use my phone gutka app when i was learning back over 5 years ago then began using samsung tablet which i wish i didn't use now as that wrecked my health due to me developing migraines,eye number sight changing due to it. So i nowdays i have got a magnifer for the banis and a custom made print of the banis in large size fonts english roman print.


    Veer ji reading your posts have given me a lot of boost and inspiration as its only 2 angs a day but its cos of the punjabi reading issue i can't at the moment but i hope one day i will as i am planning to learn punjabi starting this week.

    I read it few times many years ago like 10 years. Wow such a long time.  But since you reopened this thread , I am doing one page from Gutka Sahib everyday after Rehraas Sahib now. I hope by mentioning it here I dont get haumai and my Nitnem does not get broken. Lol. If it does then its a sign from Guru ji to stay quiet , lets see. Thanks veer for reminding about this. Its a very long baani so I will finish reading in few days. 🙏🏽

    Veer ji you are right it is such a long time its amazing how time flies. I thought that i felt like a long time myself as it was just over 18 months that it was the first time that i had read it. Its really good veer ji to do just a page a day as i had spent 9 days with 3 days break so in total it was 12 days then lol. But Guru Sahib Ji will do kirpa as a page compared to a full paath of is way relaxed as it has 17 chapters Sri Akal Ustat. The 2 i found easy was the Deenan Ki Pritpal Kare and Surwag Sudh Smooh as they come panj bani nitnem just the other 15 were hard as it was my first attempt at the time.

  8. Learning to read in Punjabi will make me feel a hell of alot better especially as dass like mahapurshs jeevan books which is best to be enjoyed in punjabi as a lot of the english translated books don't have the same ras flow compared to hearing it in punjabi the original texts.


    All of these new youtube english speakers like Nanak Naam Bhai Satpal Singh make me fall asleep less than a minute as its not a language english i can connect to.

    you definitely should, it will change your whole perspective.

    The more you learn gurmukhi, the more you will see how illogical and unedcuated the way spellings are done for English language, they don't even make full use of the resources of symbols and characters to spell, that's how dumbed down and unintelligible it is!

    100% correct veer ji all the banis in roman english i have seen they have so many mistakes and i have to underline a lot of lines when i use the audio tracks to learn and do the paath of the banis in english.


    Its a wreck what they have done especially on the blue sundar gutka app especially with dasam banis which is wrong.

    If you don't know how to already, I seriously advise people to make use of this lockdown and learn Gurmukhi. If you know it already - improve it. 

    This is the best thing i have read today veer ji. I want to start now as i am getting bored of english language lol especially when i see punjabi written stuff vs english is not as nice.
