  4. First of all, we (as Sikhs) must respect Vedas. They do have plenty of gyan (knowledge) in them and we can learn a lot from them. Some of the major differences between Gurbani and Ved bani are as follows: Quote (Ragmala jee) Regarding the Vedas , Baba Ishar Singh Ji said they are not false, they tell about the disease but do not provide the medicine. The medicine for Ego/ Haumai is only present in Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. Unquote Quote (Ragmala jee) Pandit Narayan Singh ji would listen to katha of both vedas & SGGS. When listening to katha of vedas, he would sit at the same level as the kathavachak, When listening to Katha of Guru Granth Sahib , he would sit lower. People asked him how come ? This incident was narrated by Baba Ishar Singh Ji in his Bachans. "...they tell about the disease but do not provide the medicine. The medicine for Ego/ Haumai is only present in Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. " Unquote Furthermore: 1. Vedas don't talk about Prema Bhagtee (devotion based on love) ਭਾਉ ਨ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੈ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਚਾਰਿ ਬੇਦਿ ਸਿੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਪੜ੍ਹਿ ਪੇਖੈ। Bhaau N Brahamai Likhiaa Chaari Bayd Sinmriti Parhhi Paykhai. भाउ न ब्रहमै लिखिआ चारि बेद सिंम्रिति पड़्हि पेखै । Having gone through the Vedas and simritis one finds that Brhama also has nowhere written about the Sentiment of love. 3 ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੨੫ ਪੰ. ੩ [1] [1] - http://searchgurbani.com/bhai_gurdas_vaaran/vaar/1/pauri/25 2. Vedas (most of it) do not talk about the fourth state of mind (Turiya pad), while Gurbani is written from the perspective of Turiya pad. ਚਾਰੇ ਬੇਦ ਕਥਹਿ ਆਕਾਰੁ ॥ The four Vedas speak only of the visible forms. ਤੀਨਿ ਅਵਸਥਾ ਕਹਹਿ ਵਖਿਆਨੁ ॥ They describe and explain the three states of mind, ਤੁਰੀਆਵਸਥਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਤੇ ਹਰਿ ਜਾਨੁ ॥੧॥ but the fourth state, union with the Lord, is known only through the True Guru. ||1|| ਵੇਦੁ ਪੁਕਾਰੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਬਿਧਿ ਮਾਇਆ ॥ The Vedas proclaim that Maya is of three qualities. Bhul chuk maaf
  5. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. I was reading quite a few articles and books in regards to Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Jee and I've discovered a few facts and I have a few theories about Sri Dasam Patshah's Granth. If one were to inspect the various Versions of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Jee ( SGPC version, Bhai Randhir Singh Version, Hazoor Sahib Version, Anandpur Sahib Version, and so on) we'd find quite a lot of discrepancies and consistency in Birs when compared to each other. As we all know, Sri Dasam Granth Sahib was with strenuous effort, compiled by Bhai Mani Singh Ji, who had managed to gather as much of Dasam Patshah Jee's Bani as he possibly could into his Bir. This what I've noticed so far from my reading: 1) We discovered Banis which aren't to be found in Bhai Mani Singh's Bir. 2) many texts are ascribed to Jaan-O-Dil-Raa-Raah Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Jee which don't seem to match Guru Sahib's more prominent texts, which has caused people to doubt some of these Banis and consider them as the work of other writers. For example: Asfotak Kabit, Sahansar Sukhmana, Naam Shastar Mala Mantar, etc. 3) We'd find that some of Guru Sahib's Bani is outside of any version of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib, such as Sarbloh Prakash. 4) We also find that some Banis are incomplete (portions are missing). For example: Shastar Naam Mala Granth/Puran, Akal Ustat, and Gyan Prabodh. Bhai Mani Singh couldn't gather every Bani of Guru Sahib, but he did make an attempt, which was fruitful. Baba Gurbakash Singh Jee and Baba Binod Singh Jee also prepared their very own Birs, Followed by many other Gursikhs of the 1700s. This could explain why the Birs are inconsistent and have dissimilarities in content. Many of the writers must have found Banis ( which were not in the first Bir) and then added them into their own Sarroops. Others copied those Sarroops and produced their own. Some of the texts might have been of the Hazoori Gursikh Kavis and they were also added to Birs by writers thinking that they were Dasam Patshah's. Also, Some Pothis were left undiscovered and thus weren't added into any Bir of Dasam Granth Sahib, such as Sarbloh Prakash. I've noticed how many books containing the writings of Darbari Kavis are slowly going out of print and then out of Shelves. Would it be permissible to combine Sarbloh Prakash, Hazoori Darbari Kavis' Bani, and Sri Dasam Granth Sahib into one Bir? It could be HUGE, but that depends on the size of the letters and papers.

  7. We have all plausibly heard the narrative of Akali-Nihung Guru Gobind Singh Ji's preliminary sojourn as 'Dusht-Daman' and the manifestation of the prior Nihungs. For those who are a bit lost, heres what I am talking about, http://tisarpanth.blogspot.co.nz/2013/01/nihung-singhs-original-khalsa.html, http://www.nihangsingh.org/website/his-origins.html after studying this info I have a few questions. 1.) Which significant texts mention 'Dusht-Daman?' 2.) What is the traditional Nihung Singh perspective on 'Dusht-Daman?' 3.) Often esoteric scholars taxonomise Chandi as being an inherent mystical force which is employed to battle against inherent vices. How does the tale of Dusht-Daman reconcile with such a view? 4.) Does Singh originally mean tiger? 5.) How do we explain to a layman, who perceives transmigration as being repulsive, why the Gurus went through such a state? 6.) It is said that the Nihungs evolved through the four ages, it is also said they fought during these ages. Any more info on this? 7.) Whhere does it mention Nihung Singh's and their primary sojourn in Chandi Di Vaar?

  9. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh, Dear Sadh Sangat Ji, With the Grace of Guru Sahib ji , i have decided to do SEVA and help SIKHS living in Remote Areas / Pakistan Border Area ( Rajasthan) India !!! PLEASE POST YOUR SUGGETION, COMMENTS about this Project !!! We will need Support and Fundraising help from Sikh Sangat. The Ghaghar River flows through Rajasthan's Sri Ganganagar District towards Pakistan. This river is named Ghaghar River because it was use to flow like A women wearing Skirt doing Whirly dance. Water spins very fast due to whirly effect and it starts cutting the soil/ shores and many kilometres long land will suddenly get sunk into river water. Most people living in this area are Sikhs. Story of this Area : It is said that one day Dasven Patshah Dhan Dhan Sti Guru Gobind Singh ji was going through this area with his Sikhs. Guru ji and sikhs started to cross the Ghaghar river in Bedis and 40 Sikhs of Guru ji stuck in the Ghumangheri (swirling water), sunk, and died. This happened between two places known as Malla Tibba and Jhanda Tibba. Guru ji then gave Shrap to the Ghaghar river that - O River You will Dry one day, my Sikhs will come here, they will Rip your chest and they will do khethi ( farming) on your chest. River asked in reply Sachhe patshah when i will flow again. Guru ji said you will flow very occasionally. Since after that many Sikhs settled in this area and started doing farming Inside and along the river. I was born and grown in this area. I have countless number of farms ( even many villages) are actually inside the river flow area ( or between both shores of the river) When heavy rain comes in Punjab , they put excessive water into Ghaghar river ( it happens 2-3 times in every 5-7 years) and it supplies minerals and water for farming properties in the river. This area is Mini Punjab of Rajasthan. Coz it gives a big amount of crops (Wheat, Cotton, Mustard, Pulses, etc.), fruits like orange, sugar cans and other things to Whole Rajasthan. Sadly - There is NO GOVERNMENT SUPPORT to this area, no facilities, not very good hospitals, not good education, bad roads, even not enough volume of water is supplied trough Farming Canals due to Politics of Rajasthan government. This area is self developed by local people. When farmers put their seeds in their fields, government cuts down the water supply form many days to months. About Sikhs living in the Area and common issues: Most Sikhs are farmer. There is no Gur Sikhi Prachar in the Area, Most Sikhs have forgotten their real Values and going on the path of Patit Puna. Dont ask about Young Generation. There is Theka (bottle shop) in every small village. But this area is far away from big intoxications / drugs. Killing of Unborn Daughters in Sikh Families is very common in this area. Rude culture / DAWRY system - Grooms Family asking for Meat, Chickens, Branded Wines, Car/Motorbikes, Cash and arrangements of Female Dancers is very common. Needs: - There is a big need of Gur Sikhi Prachar and to develop personal links with Sikhs in the area. - There is a big demand for a good Hospital. Closet good hospital with emergency facilities PMB (prince bijaysingh memorial) hospital, Bikaner. Which is 163kms away from Gharsana, 186kms from Anupgarh and 489kms from Sri Vijaynagar.
