    Crystal got a reaction from Jageera in The Fighting Traditions And Fighting Arts Of The Traditional Sikh Warriors The Beloved of Guru Gobind Singh Ji The Akali Nihangs Edition 2 1998   
    When all cowered before the savage Afghans the Khalsa Akali Nihang Dals alone stood against them . They could not defeat them in a single engagement thus they employed the stratagem of , ‘Dai Phat’ . Ratan Singh describes the Akali attacks on Ahamed Shahs forces thus , ‘ By dealing great blows to Ahmed Shah did the Khalsa create great difficulties for him . One Missal got up early morning and went to battle . Another went at mid day . One returned from the fight then second went and took it’s place . Second returned then third went . The Singh Akalis never gave up . If some one died amongst them they say he has been successful . If enemy became to strong they disengaged . But when pursuing enemy turned back the Akalis could be seen returning behind them . Afghans tried hard to engage the Nihangs . Eyes wide open they stood to face the Khalsa . Covered in armour did they and there horses stand . They desired to cut and fight with swords . But Singhs from a distance with muskets dropped them dead . Thus did they annoy Ahmad Shah . With great difficulty did he reach Kabul .’
     
    Kazi Noor Muhamed who accompanied Ahamed Shah a number of times , in 1764 wrote his Jang Nama . In it he describes the Akali Nihang Khalsa Dals battle stratagem . ‘ Oh my Balauch brothers heed my words . Some times fighting they (Singhs) whilst engaging in battle suddenly flee from the fight . Beware do not consider they run away because they are defeated thi is but a war stratagem of theirs . Some times being duped by them some warriors thinking they have won give chase after them . When they (Nihangs) know they have sufficiently separated their pursuers from their main force and no help can come to them from the main force . They suddenly regrouping all at once turn back and attack their pursuers employing their sword in such a deadly manner that the pursuers can not stand before them .’ Summing up the Akali Nihang Singhs stratagem of war Kazi Noor Muhamad wrote , ‘To face the enemy with courage . Then leave the battle field safely .’

    I totally agree so many medicines have drugs in them like pain killers, antibotics, sleeping pills and the injection they give before surgry. 
     
    If its for pain relief and medical reasons its fine but to abuse is wrong.
     
    There is so many cases where patients have became addicated to pain killers containing codine as its made out of opium.

    This person is a sexual predator, the so called panth do not want to admit it as he generates soo much money to any gurdwara, as his basic emotional sikhi touches other g*ys.

    The akal takhat was made beautifully by budha dal but panthic khalistanis has to tear it down. Today the akal takhats design is different than the design that Guru Hargobind sahib gave it, all thanks to panthic khalistanis.

    According to Niddar's book, she was a virgin widow. Her husband had died before the "Muklawa" was sent.
    Now, it makes sense why Maharaaj was sympathetic to her (gave her money at the end), even though she played a heinous Charitar.

    In the west the dairy industry is very cruel and dairy products contain antibiotic residues and hormones so it makes sense to me why people want to avoid it.

    It is only online, however I have heard once the 8 volumes are released, there might be hard copies. However who knows how long.

    Thats why i dont eat at restaurants. Cant afford to spend £25 on a meal which I can get for a fraction of that price. And gitfs.
     
     
    You and me both. Listening to the videos he isn't really giving any indepth analysis in them. We have done more on this forum than he has.
     
     
    0%.
     
    The book itself has to be worthy of its price. £25 for a kindle is a ripoff. I don't want to put my money into this guys pocket unecessarily given the kind of guy he is. False.

    Even if the existing Mukhis choose the next leaders, it won't always ensure smooth transitions. We have two examples from the Taksal itself.
    When Sant Baba Bishen Singh jee Murarewale chose Sant Baba Sundar Singh jee Khalsa as the next Mukhi of Taksal, there was a squabble. Some Singhs wanted Baba Prem Singh jee to become the next Mukhi. This issue reached a point where Baba Sundar Singh jee had to leave the Dera to maintain peace. Rift after Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh jee Khalsa Bhindranwale went to Sachkhand. You probably know the details. The conflict happened, even though Sant Baba Kartar Singh jee was appointed as the next Jathedar in front of thousands of people (Sangat).

    For a kindle, it's not that bad for Canadians (close to 40 CAD) as long as the analysis is really good. We need to support Sikh writers too bro. 
    I guess once we read the first book, it will reveal the depth of his knowledge. Based on that, we can decide whether to buy the remaining ones or not.

    No ! I'm going to be cheap on this. If it were an actual book, then maybe. But not for a kindle.
