  1. This is the holy place where "Guru" Nanak appeared for the first time, after his meeting with Sri Akaal Purkh. It is not the same place as where Guru Sahib entered River Bein, but about 1 kilometre down the river. It was here where Guru Sahib made his famous "There is no Hindu or Muslim" statement. Bhai Gurdas Ji writes about this : "ਪਹਿਲਾ ਬਾਬੇ ਪਾਯਾ ਬਖਸੁ ਦਰਿ, ਪਿਛੋ ਦੇ ਫਿਰਿ ਘਾਲਿ ਕਮਾਈ। First of all Baba Nanak obtained the gate of the grace (of Lord) and then He underwent and earned the rigorous discipline( of heart and mind). ਰੇਤੁ ਅਕੁ ਆਹਾਰੁ ਕਰਿ, ਰੋੜਾ ਕੀ ਗੁਰ ਕਰੀ ਵਿਛਾਈ। He fed himself with sand and swallow-wort and made stones his bedding i.e. he enjoyed poverty too. ਭਾਰੀ ਕਰੀ ਤਪਸਿਆ, ਵਡੇ ਭਾਗੁ ਹਰਿ ਸਿਉ ਬਣਿ ਆਈ। He offered hid full devotion and then he was fortunate to have proximity with God. ਬਾਬਾ ਪੈਧਾ ਸਚਖੰਡਿ, ਨਉ ਨਿਧਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਗਰੀਬੀ ਪਾਈ। Baba reached the region of truth wherefrom he received Nam, the storehouse of nine treasures and humility. ਬਾਬਾ ਦੇਖੈ ਧਿਆਨ ਧਰਿ, ਜਲਤੀ ਸਭਿ ਪ੍ਰਿਥਵੀ ਦਿਸਿ ਆਈ। In his meditation, Baba found the whole earth burning (with the fire of lust and anger). ਬਾਝਹੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੁਬਾਰ ਹੈ, ਹੈ ਹੈ ਕਰਦੀ ਸੁਣੀ ਲੁਕਾਈ। Without Guru there is utter darkness and he heard the cries of the common men. ਬਾਬੇ ਭੇਖ ਬਣਾਇਆ ਉਦਾਸੀ ਕੀ ਰੀਤਿ ਚਲਾਈ। To further understand the people, Guru Nanak donned robes in their manner and preached them to be detached (from the pleasure and pain). ਚੜ੍ਹਿਆ ਸੋਧਣਿ ਧਰਤਿ ਲੁਕਾਈ ॥੨੪॥ Thus he went out to depurate humanity on earth. " There were some other Gurdwaras in Sultanpur I wanted to visit but didn't get a chance. Next visit I will definitely go. The Gurdwara where Guru Nanak's braat commenced their journey, the Gurdwara where Guru Sahib went to pray in the Mosque (the site is now a Gurdwara.) The above are the Bein where Guru Sahib appeared after 3 days. Below is the Gurdwara constructed to comemorate that special event: The Gurdwara Sant Ghat Sahib from the front: and a board detailing the signifiance of the holy place:
  2. Why and how Sikhi spread throught the world in old days? My topic means : how and why several crore people from many Asian regions, all religions and all ideologies became followers of Guru Nanak Dev ji i.e. Guru Nanak Nam Leva, who were later called Sikhs? What was chrishma in Him which attracted people inlarge numbers without modern techniques of communication? I did not agree with people who say “Guru Nanak was very intelligent, due to that people became his followers”, that is not possible. Because during that period and now a days there are several people who are very intelligent and very good orators but still people donot become their followers in large numbers. There must be something else, which is not evident. Pl tell us with detail. In this forum there is a thread “why sikhi failed to spread”, By amardeep in 2015, which is very educative and eye opener. After reading that i became interested in this forum. I hope members of this forum can throw light on this topic also. I request everybody to give us knowledge about this topic. Even in this period there are about 11crore Guru Nanak Leva people mostly in India, many of them cannot understand Hindi leave aside Punjabi. We must analise: with so much language barrier and hardships of communications , why and how they became followers Guru Nanak Dev ji in those days or later? After 500yrs still they are his devotee, why? How their devotion/attachment survived when there is no contact/preaching/support from Sikh clergy/SGPC etc? I know many hard core Sikhs or who are in power, who are in posession of main gurdwara and goolks and so called mainstrem Sikhs donot consider them as Sikhs but as per my opinion they are Sikhs. They are real real Sikhs devotees, true disciples of Guru Nanak Dev ji because they have devotion inside, which is real Sikhi. Because Sikhi is not with any particular uniform or dress code or even kes/hair are not neccessory element of Sikhi as per Gurubani, Sikhi is with devotion to Guru Nanak Dev ji. I request everybody to give us knowledge about this topic.
  3. On 8th March, world celebrates women's day. Sikh faith was among the first major world religions to imply that women were equals to men. Guru Nanak proclaimed the equality of men and women and all Guru Sahiban allowed women to take full part in all the activities of Sikh worship and practice.
