  1. Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh Is there any lines in Gurbanee or PURATAN Rehatnamay which state that all five Kakaars cannot be removed from the body at any time? I know for sure that Kachera cannot be removed from the body at any time. Both Nanaksar and DDT follow it. But, DDT is very strict on other Kakaars too. I believe that it could be due to their love for Kakaars. I feel extremely uncomfortable taking my Kirpan and Kara to the washroom especially when answering the call of nature. Can someone please clarify with CLEAR references? Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh
  2. Have you any of you guys have any info about the so called "Baba" Vadhbag "Singh" Dera in Doaba? I read about him a while ago and how he's a descendant of Dhir Maaliyas, fled from the Turks and Khalsa, and how his Dera is not to be gone to or to associate with his followers, but I just found that my close Family members go to this Dera which is headed by a women who is related to a close family member. So does anyone got any info?
  3. Amardeep (now forum admin), brought this text to our attention a few years ago (nice one bro!), and I've been looking at it recently. It's a very interesting extract from the Chaupa Singh Singh rehatnama as translated and published by Hew McLeod. If it is an accurate account, it suggests that Guru ji didn't expect all Sikhs to fight in war, deeming some unsuitable. I've not compared the translation to the original Panjabi text as given in McLeod's book yet. I'm posting both for people's inspection. I love reading, but unfortunately I just can't do it for prolonged periods in electronic form (ebooks, kindle, ipads etc.), and can't afford to print out the whole thing either hence I haven't read the book fully yet. Translation: The full book is here: https://www.scribd.com/doc/251660050/The-Chaupa-Singh-Rahit-Nama-Translation-by-Hew-McLeod
  4. Srimaan Sant Baba Attar Singh jee Mastuanaywale's bachan: Reference: Life Story of Sant Attar Singh ji by Harbans Singh Doabia Bhul chuk maaf
  5. There is currently NO one Sikh Rehat Maryada. The so-called Sikh Rehat Maryada was not accepted by the panth. How can the orthodox sects of Sikhism accept a maryada which takes out two main Gurbanees from the nitnaym? There are many more issues other than this. Please listen to the scholar below.

  6. Has anyone come across any reference to nails in Rehatnamay or any historical source? Any super natural significance of nails? Thanks Bhul chuk maaf
  7. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. CyberSangat ji (I hope that's appropriate to say), I'm kind of new to this site, and I came here mainly because of the load of questions I had. A few of them are about the 'Khalsa Rehatnama', found in the Gutkas issued by Baba Santa Singh ji of the Buddha Dal. I find It to be quite strange. It had portions from Bhai Nand Lal Singh Ji's Bani (his Rehatnama and Tankhanama in specific), a portion from a Gurbilas, Suraj Prakash (I think) and a few other select paurdees (stanzas) from other Rehatnamas and Granths. Why is it like that? Who Compiled the 'Khalsa Rehatnama' of the Buddha Dal? Why are only a select few paurdees in the Buddha Dal's Rehatnama? Also, I know a Akhand Kirtani Jatha Singh and he reads a 'Khalsa Rehatnama' which is a compilation of like 6-7 different Rehatnamas and shabads from Sarbloh Granth and Sri Dasam Patshahi Ki Granth during Amritvela after Nitnem, he has them written down in a few papers. I have never heard of, known of, or seen a Singhni or Singh do that. Is it like an AKJ version of the 'Khalsa Rehatnama' or something? I haven't even seen Akj Singhs or singhnis do something like that. I do paath of a few Rehatnamas, but I don't understand why the Buddha Dal's 'Khalsa Rehatnama' is so short and cut up.
  8. Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh Satguru Sri Guru Gobind Singh jee Maharaaj has said that cutting hair is as sinful as Incest. Can anyone please provide me the source of this information? Here is video link from where I got the information. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7v3BmKSfGM Thanks a lot. Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh
  9. Gurfateh everyone. I hope most of the people on this site must also be using 'Quora.com'. Recenlty I came across the following question on Quora http://www.quora.com...ir-and-or-beard The Questions is "What is it like for a Sikh to cut his hair?" I do not know who asked this, but I did go through the answers. There are about 5-6 answers given by Sikh males themselves who got their hair cut at some point in their life. Yes, it did hurt me reading those answers, but I felt, as you all will feel that everyone has a right to express his/her story and there is not much wrong in that. However, let me describe some things here. If you look at the contents of the answers, you will find that mostly the people are describing that how difficult it was for them to maintain their hair, and how free they felt after getting it cut etc etc. They even mention that they felt 'proud' and 'free' after doing that. Now, tell me how many of us feel this way? Hair keeping is of course not difficult for us and we lovingly maintain it. Don;t you all feel that a wrong general idea is being circulated? I mean so many people read these answers; what information would they get? That all Sikhs are in great difficulty keeping their hair? I did have a one-one comment discussion also with one of those 'answerers'. Okay let us say that we ignore this and say that let people speak what they want to, we can't stop their mouths. But you know what is more disturbing??? I have seen answers there,in which the writer (a Sikh) addresses other Sikhs who want to cut their hair and narrates to them his act of bravery (of cutting his hair ) and even advises them to act!!! I have seen some Sikhs commenting and asking these people that even they want to cut their hair and how should they go about doing this? You know what reason a person was giving there? He writes that since he has cut his hair he has made many girlfriends , and before he had none. Such statements are being used to lure the youth to cut their hair? ( If you read one 'Jas Anand's' answer, you'll find this). Shouldn't we do something? I mean those people are advising other Sikhs that how to cut their hair/ how to convince their parents /how they will get girlfriends after that etc etc? What can we do? Atleast : 1)We should comment in opposition, that keeping hair has great benefits and we take pride in it, so that the readers are not misled. 2)We should report abuse the question( We never know if the answers are actually coming from fake accounts to demean the Sikh practices) 3) We should message the Quora admin in large numbers and ask him/her to remove the question as it is hurting religious sentiments. Here is the list of the admins (their names are mentioned in the answer http://www.quora.com...admins-of-Quora Or we can send a mail to moderation@quora.com asking to do the same. Please everyone discuss and decide upon this. Also, if anyone misses to read all the answers, I am posting here the contents of an answer (given by Jas Anand). Here it is "Guess this post will be mostly read by kids/adults who have hair and are planning to remove the turban. So I'll write this post just for them. Anybody else please excuse. Just to introduce myself - am a guy based in India - and took the decsion when I was about 20 years. So, what was the first reaction - Haaaww!! I was not allowed to meet my own brothers for the fact that I may 'corrupt' their minds. I was living alone in another city and working, n just completing graduation. I wasn't told about the death of my best friend - who dies in an accident - just for the fact that I may visit the family and would bring 'shame' as others would get to know. I was not allowed to visit family functions as I would bring 'disgrace'. This just a day's transformation from being he best child in family to now being the 'black sheep' as one uncle called me. So how it impacted me - It made me more determined to succeed and show others! How I felt - Freedom. Found a Girlfriend/s;) as I was pretty unkempt earlier - sorry guys. " I have not posted everyhting. This person also says he would 'post more' in second post. Somewhere or the other I feel , that isn;t it our duty to gude them? To tell them of the great martyrdoms that have taken place because of hair? Okay even if we keep shut by thinking that let them do whatever they want, but they are not only 'doing', they are influencing million others also in the same way (who are reading their answers) (((
