  1. You people are stuck in past accolades.
  2. Friend on SM told me how he recently met a senior member of delhi sikh gurdwara committee and enquire steps taken by them to handle missionaries. He bluntly told him, "they have chosen their new religion, there is nothing we can do".
  3. Low fertility rate is a problem. Sikhs are actually well below (1.8) replacement level of 2.1.
  4. Japan and other parts of east asia also Hindu devtas/devis are worshiped . They have been incorporated into Shintoism and Taoism. There are temples dedicated to Indra, Brahma, Saraswati, Shiva, Ganesha, Shiva, Vishnu etc in Buddhist countries of East Asia :- http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/before-buddhism-hindu.html http://videshisutra.com/2013/02/01/hindu-devas-take-a-silk-road-trip-to-japan/ Some good books on this :- books.google.ca/books?id=2et6AgAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=upendra+india+japan&hl=en&sa=X&ei=fXRWVMegI4mVyQTqt4KACg&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q=

  6. Thus have I heard: On one occasion the Blessed One was living near Savatthi at Jetavana at Anathapindika's monastery. Then in the forenoon the Blessed One having dressed himself, took bowl and (double) robe, and entered the city of Savatthi for alms. Now at that time a fire was burning, and an offering was being prepared in the house of the brahman Aggikabharadvaja. Then the Blessed One, while on his alms round, came to the brahman's residence. The brahman seeing the Blessed One some way off, said this: "Stay there, you shaveling, stay there you wretched monk, stay there you outcast." When he
  7. This story occurs in Vana Parva section of Mahabharat and is recited to Pandava Prince Yudhishthira by an enlightened sage Markandeya. In this story, an arrogant Brahmin is completely humbled by Dharma Vyadha (righteous butcher), and learns about all the secrets of spirituality & dharma from the menial butcher. The Vyadha teaches the elitist Brahmin that "no duty is ever ugly, no duty is ever impure" and it is only the way & the spirit in which the work is done, determines its worth. Doing your profession or social role perfectly leads to enlightenment. One may need not quit your job o
  8. Afghanistan has been conquered several times, it was only during mughal times that these Pathans started to rebel against Mughals and then later during Abdali they asserted themselves as a separate nation. Before that, Abdali was serving under Nadir Shah, an Iranian. Afghanistan had no identity, it was piece of land that was wrestled over between various Indian and Iranian empires, until Jahangir lost it to Safavid Iranians for good. lol Indians buy into the Islamist propaganda of Afghans being undefeated without doing any research. All of those marauders like Ghaznavi and Ghori were not Patha
  9. How many of you are aware of the kind of intellectual subversion that is going on in western academic circles ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabir#Criticism That Wendy Doniger lady is calling Kabir Das ji a misogynist, she is a well know western indologist who has been working overtime to undermine other indic traditions as well. And amidst other things, she and cohorts are working to whitewash muslim imperialism in india. http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/interview/scholar-audrey-truschke-aurangzeb-is-a-severely-misunderstood-figure/article7648723.ece Shouldn't we put more effort into refutin
  10. Ibn Khaldun, a great thinker of Islam, on cultural imperialism :- “The vanquished always seek to imitate the victors in their dress, insignia, beliefs and other customs and usages. This is because men are always inclined to attribute perfection to those who have defeated and subjugated them. Men do this either because the reverence they feel for their conquerors makes them see perfection in them or because they refuse to admit that their defeat could have been brought about by ordinary causes and hence suppose it is due to the perfection of their conquerors. Should this belief persist for long
  11. Where ? Please point out. I don't deny that I'm not completely free from such influences or taking any moral high ground. Just sharing info with people that might be useful :)
  12. Good ideas from anywhere are welcome. But must be tailored to local circumstances and applied. Lifting entire meme complexes from elsewhere and forcing it with scant regard to Indian traditions, history & complexity will only result in disaster. In this regard, even the "right thinking" Hindus & Sikhs, like the ones in UK who support EDL for e.g., share an innate inferiority complex stemming from their lack of knowledge & deep understanding of how the world works, let alone know nuances of Indic traditions/history.
  13. Evangelizing conquest method historically practiced by goras has given way to more crafty scheme of promoting liberalism, dumbocracy and other isms for export. Notice how many Desis fall for feminism, liberalism, capitalism, libertarianism, socialism etc...it represents a new chapter in our intellectual slavery to the West. I go on social media and these kids in India identifying themselves by these isms, left wing, right wing, all sorts of imported dialectic. I even see our people trying to prove how Indic faiths promote XYZ westernism just so that they can get a pat on the back from saheb. M
  14. People discussing Marathas vs Sikhs, why rajputs are superior, eggs allowed or not, feeling disturbed by sexual imagery in SGGS etc when you (all of you - hindus, buddhist, sikh, jain ) are facing an existential threat. Just another day at Sikh "Awareness". Kinda reminds me of the Romans before their fall. Romans in 5th century: "Jesus is part human, part divine" , "Heretic! His human nature is subsumed by the divine!" Huns: "Give us your gold." Keep living in the past and gloating in something that you had no role in, in the end when it really counted (1947), it didn't matter who conquered
  15. A Christian missionary in 500s-600s In Iran said this: Source : Manichaeism in the later Roman empire and medieval China by Lieu, page 87-88 This shows that Christian use of subterfuge among heathen systems was an old one. Does it remind of you something ? Well let me show you:
  16. Secularism is an abrahamic doctrine, it came from an abrahamic framework. Hence by implication, in practise it will favor Abrahamisms only. Don't judge by the externals (Belief in god etc), look more into what it actually preaches (very similar to christian theology), the psychology, how it actually operates on the ground and why some countries are so adamant on pushing it on others. Here's a good article explaining the Christian origins of Secularism and seperation of church & state: http://www.academia.edu/1549528/2_The_Christian_origins_of_secularism_and_the_rule_of_law A few from Tom
  17. Another country which is being Christianized is Nepal , hence such a great push for adding "secularism" in the constitution by foreign powers despite the opposition by Nepali people. Mostly done through foul tricks and paying money to Nepali politicians.
  18. Here's another example of how Secularism was used as a trojan to Christianize S.Korea. Now Buddhists are being mistreated by the Christians.
  19. Contrary to the popular belief, very few Muslims in India marry more than one wife. The real reason is certainly higher TFR for Muslims which is causing their % to increase. Indic religions are falling because they have embraced the secular culture and other follies like hedonism, feminism, other kinds of western-isms etc which naturally leads to a lower TFR. Secularism is a trojan horse, a safety net for Abrahamisms. Ask yourself why all "minority" indic religions like Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Tribal faiths have declined while the 2 minorities (global majorities) have grown ? Even the oth
