  1. Golak goes Contactless

    At my local Gurdwara, there was a Sampat Paath, where there are 6 big degs full of jall to be given to sangat after bhog. One time the jall was taken very quickly so the next time the committee decided rather to invest in more degs, to buy buy cases of plastic bottled water and give these out to the sangat after bhog of Sampat Paath.

    Have you tried Sikhbookclub?
  3. I was talking to a very highly educated young non-Sikh about literature and I sent him a brief summary of the main story in Sri CharitroPakhyan Granth and the first charitar in it. He read it and got the idea behind it and also informed me that Constantinople, a great King of many centuries ago, found himself in a very similair situation. Constantine had 2 wives and the one wife wanted her son to be king, so she complained to King that his son (from the other wife, who was in line for the throne) had tried to force himself on her. She presented herself to the King in a similiar fashion but the King had his son put to death. Later he realised his mistake and had his wife (the complainent) killed as well.
  4. I have just seen this video of Raag Basant kirtan by Dr Gurnam Singh. I can't find words to express the anand from listening to it.
  5. The Tale of Kharag Singh

    Thanks. Sant Gurbachan Singh Bhindranwale has also done katha of Sri Krishnavtar. Its on gurmatveechar.com
  6. yeah, you're right bro. Does naybody know why Raag basant is started now ? All the chaunkis in Sachkhand Sri HariMandir Sahib start with Basant Raag for this time.
  7. Name of Ninth Master

    Maybe Gurbilas Patshahi 6 could be a source?
  8. The Tale of Kharag Singh

    Yep will do. Do you know if Gyani Harbhajan Singh Dhudikey has done katha of Kharag Singh?
  9. I am of the thinking that Gurmat Sangeet is not stricly bound to raag timings. Does anyone have more info on this? On a side note, Basant Rut has started, and it so great to hear Raag Basant played every morning from Sachkhand Sri HariMandir Sahib.
  10. Looking at this Charitar just to being with from the two works above, the essence of the story is shown in the last part. It isn't a long story at all. The significance is of the word "ਤਕੀਆ" which means support, and in the setting that is being used, it can also mean a pillow. This is what I think from this: The King and the woman are together when the husband arrives home. The woman throws a sheet over the King and arranges for him to be a support/pillow on their bed. Then the woman is involved with her husband on the bed with the King underneath them. So the message here is that the wise minister is saying to King Chitar Sen that your Queen has throw a sheet over you (like a parda) so you cannot see what she is doing. Sometimes in Panjabi we say "ਪੱਤਾ ਨਹੀਂ ਮੱਤ ਦੇ ਪਰਦਾ ਕਿਵੇਂ ਪੈ ਗਿਆ." The question of support comes from the fact that the King beleived the Queen absolutely without trying to ascertain the truth. The King himself has become a support for the Queen because of his own infatuation/moh with her. Moving on from this: In fear the King is not able to breathe out loudly for fear of arousing suspicion. Here it seems to me the minister is saying to the King that just as the King in the charitar knew he was in the wrong and was to scared to breathe because of this, ask yourself whether you are too scarewd to question your own feelings towards the Queen. "Are you scared that by not beleiving her, you will lose her?" etc.
  11. The Tale of Kharag Singh

    Dayuuum! Its very long. The chhands in Krishnavtar regarding "Kharag Singh " start from 1170. I have only glanced through the english translation to begin with but there is also mention of the Pandavs and Kauravs both fighting on the same side as well. It seems like some of the names are used to highlight certain attributes of people ie there is a "Karodhit Singh" who speaks harshly to Krishna.
  12. Death of the Nihangs

    Being a spectator doesn't means that his views are endorsed. Who is Giani Inderjit Singh? The one from Raqba? I would agree that Baba SantaSingh was a highly educated in Gurmat.
  13. Death of the Nihangs

    This was the same with ajit singh poohla and paramraj singh umranangal ssp except that poohla was also given some heavy duty firearms as well.
  14. The Tale of Kharag Singh

    I will find some and put some up if the parsang isn't too long.
