  1. Waheguruji ka khalsa Waheguruji ki fateh sangat ji! There is a lot of assumption going on in the posts above. I've attended the 7 days compulsory basic camp last year (without which one cannot gain entry to the advanced camp) and the 4 days advanced camp which was held at Leicester in 2015. The basic 7 days camps, 4am to 6am are generally a way for beginners to ease their way to yoga and pranayama and how to incorporate Waheguru simran into it. If you attend the whole week, you can see how the difficulty stages gradually increase. During the 4 days' advanced camp, the yogasanas gradually get tougher and are just meant to be an introduction to one's life, depending upon your ability. There is only so much one can teach and learn in a few days' time. In regards, to the advanced camp, this has been one of the best moments in my life. Considering, that I have spent 13 years of my life at Baru Sahib, I have never had the privilege to be part of such an intense simran and sadhna programme. One of the basic rules are: NO TALKING and no electronic devices allowed. At all. For four days. The routine of the advanced camp is vaguely as follows: 2am - Parkash followed by simran and Nitnem. 4am to 4:30 am - Sukhasan and small break. 4:30am - Excercises, Yogasan, Pranayam, Simran and Katha veechar. 7:30am - Breakfast. 8am - Rest. 11am - Meditation session 12:30 pm - Lunch 1pm - rest 4pm - snacks 4:30 pm - Simran, Rehras sahib, Aarti, Keertan, Katha, Simran 7:30pm - Sukhasan 8pm - Dinner 9pm/9:30pm - lights out The camp is free of cost and all you do is eat, sleep, pray and yoga. Following is the schedule for the Camps booked in the UK 2016:- 11th-17th July - Smethwick Camp, Guru Nanak Gurdwara, 128-130 High Street, Smethwick, West Midlands, B66 3AP 18th-24th July - Bradford Camp, Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara, BD3 9JN. 25th Jul-31st Jul - Newcastle Camp, Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 5RN. 1st-7th Aug - Coventry Camp, Guru Nanak Parkash Gurdwara, Harnall Lane, CV1 4FB. 8th-14th Aug - Southall Camp, Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara, Havelock Rd, UB2 4NP. 15th-21st Aug - Slough Camp, Ramgarhia Gurdwara,Woodland Avenue, Slough, Berkshire, SL1 3BU 22nd-28th Aug - Gurdwara Bebe Nanaki ji, 189 Rookery Road, Birmingham B21 9PX 1st-4th Sep - Advanced Camp Chigwell, Guru Gobind Singh Khalsa College, Roding Lane, 1G7 6BQ. Once, you attend the advanced camp, you're allowed to gain entry into the 11 days camp held in India at Dunera, Punjab. Mata Baljit Kaur and her son Amardeep Singh are originally from Jalandhar and are now based in Canada where Mataji's daughter and elder son live too. Contrary to what has been posted above, they do actually conduct many, many camps in India all over the country and have been doing so for the past 10 years. They are not in any way affiliated with 3HO and importance to Yoga and Pranayama at camps in only given to enhance the experience of doing Waheguru Simran. Personally, I love the way she tells Sakhian from Sikh Itihaas. This is one of my favourite ones:
  2. It is ironic how Britain is unable to deal with its own problem of child abuse but "India's Daughter", which highlights a rape case in India, has been made by a Brit. Not that the rapes aren't a problem in India, but it makes me wonder as to why Leslee Udwin couldn't start by documenting problems in her home country...
  3. Anybody out there (irrespective of religion), who thinks that physically abusing another human being is acceptable because they don't behave/think the way you want them to, needs a deep introspection.
  4. 'Living with the Himalayan Masters' has been one of the best books I have ever read. Reading this book makes you question your own relation to your Guru, when you compare it with the relation between Dr. Swami Ram ji and their Guru. Have always recommended this book.
  5. Dear bhenji, The suit in the picture above, looks fantastic. I think it would look great on you. Although, do make sure that the dupatta is wide enough so that it doesn't look awkward when you have worn it over your dumalla. Also, if hubby and in-laws aren't fussed, don't worry about the colours. Do make sure that the colours match the hubby's outfit. Nothing's worse than an un-matched wedding couple where the colours don't complement each other. P.s. I wore an orange suit with blue dumalla on my wedding and hubby had a blue chola with orange dumalla.
  6. Singhs have confronted Gyani Ji about this. They've confirmed that this is true. And apparently, Gyani Ji still maintains that it was the Bibi's 'bad karam' that caused it.... (seriously!) About the audio, ....not once has he denied it (on the phone with the Bibi). He blames the Bibi's 'bad karam' instead. (So, something definitely did happen). Also, to accept that something like this could have happened, does not mean that we're being judgmental. It should simply make us wary of our own vices...till the very end.
  7. Bhaji, your post has reminded me that I forgot to mention Degh, Anand Saheb (6 paurian) and Ardas. When you say "in India", do you just mean home or a samparda/taksal?
  8. Bhaji, do you need maryada for Chalisa? or for doing Sukhmani Saheb in particular? Maryada for Chalisa is Amritvela, Ishnaan including Kes, White cloth aasan, jot, agarbatti, facing East (although I would choose the direction of where Maharaj ji's parkaash is or where you've kept your collection of Gutke Saheb & sainchian) and doing your path at the same time and same place for all 40 days. This is what I remember from the top of my head....although, I shall try and look for a source if you need one.
  9. In ashtaang yoga, the stages are as following: yam, niyam, aasan, pranayam, pratyahara, dharna, dhyaan and samadhi. A while ago, I had read the book, 'Living with the Himalayan masters' by Dr Swami Ram ji. In one of the chapters, he explains how he witnessed a 'guru' leave his body and occupy an another young dead body which had been left unattended. This was done so as to be able to continue his spiritual practices. Now, this 'guru' had obviously entered the state of samadhi and then exited his praan via the brahm-randar naadi or dasam dwaar. This is what my perception of a yoga guru is.
  10. I might be giving a bit of a negative input here...but things like these make me a bit skeptical. If somebody is classified as a yoga 'guru', I would assume that they would have complete control over how their body works. More so, their body organs should be in a perfect working order. To be a yoga 'guru', and to die of heart and renal failure at 95....seems a bit odd. Lets assume that their 'breath' or 'swaas' for this lifetime were exhausted....and they just had to exit their 'praan-shakti' to leave this body. Do the heart and kidneys fail in such a procedure? Or may be I am overestimating yoga....
