    Akali_Akal_Singh got a reaction from Arsh1469 in Havan (Fire Ritual) Maryada   
    Sargun Havan is not Gurmat. Gurmat says that nothing is to be worshipped except the Nirgun swarup. According to Baba Jagjit Singh ji Harkhowal wale, a Gurmukh's Havan is when Gyan awakens, when the avashnas are washed with the fire of Brahmgyan. Therefore "havan" like other words is used as a metaphor.
    Udasis were the real Sikh missionaries. Their job was to spread Sikhi, to attract more and more people. Therefore, in order to achieve their goals, they adopted many Sanataan practises. Of whom are the saffron bhekh, idol worship, havan etc. They did succeed. They converted many Hindus into Sehajdhari Sikhs.
    However, Khalsa has been strictly advised against these practises.

    The English translations are very off.  Many people get confused with the worlds defined as planets.  When in reality Guru Maharaj ji is describing the spirtual planes(realms), the higher ones and lower ones, 14, .  Also all together they are sometimes mentioned as 3 lokas.  Any advanced seeker can tell you more about them. @Lucky  Has previously posted stuff about them before as well I believe.  
    As for planets, in the scientific sense, Guru maharaj ji says anek, kot , or countless.

    There are deeper spiritual meanings to the terms mentioned above, but my guess is that you are more interested in answering this on a worldly level. Let's do that. Hopefully other members can pitch in.
    One needs some knowledge of Hindu scriptures to answer the above concern. 
    When Gurbani mentions the 14 bhavans/loks - it is referring to 7 Vyahrthis (higher realms) and 7 Patals (lower realms).
    When Gurbani mentions the 3 bhavan/loks, it is referring to the earth, heaven and the sky.
    In the Puranas, there is another division.
    Swarag lok Bhu lok Pataal lok Therefore, a person who has some background knowledge will understand the references.
    In the verse below, 
    duhoo paakh kaa aapeh Dhanee.
    Duhoo - refers to lok and Pralok, which means the world we are living in right now and the world we will end up in, after death. After death, a person will only go to one lok. He/she cannot be in Swarag (heaven) and Narak (hell) at the same time. Therefore, the word "Duhoo" has been used.
    For more detailed info on the loks, please have a look below.

    Bro, these are not physical worlds like earth. they are realms. Tri lok is refered to as Pataal Lok, Maat Lok and Par lok (i think). Although at times they have been represented at living worlds they are not this in totality.

    Akali_Akal_Singh reacted to fatehsingh in ~ Suraj Parkash Granth ~   
    Sooraj Parkash is pre-1900's and is therefore created by the british to divide the Sikhs who were absolutely innocent and helpless until the tyar-bar-tyar chardi-kala sarab-shaktimaan Sri-108 Gursikhs beamed down from planet Khalistorium to instill 'Gurmat' into the depleted field of Sikhi and used their laser guns to first support the British only because it was part of their master plan and they were awaiting the mothership to arrive.

    All this is fact and is written in some granth my friend's uncle's brother's father's mother's sister has passed down in her family for millions of years but was just discovered yesterday.

    Peace.

    Good point above. Leadership does require special skills.
    Having said the above, we must not forget that Gurmukh Brahamgyanis can easily switch modes. They can turn themselves from being ultra peaceful saints to great ruthless warriors/leaders. 
    Good examples in history:
    Srimaan Sant Baba Maharaaj Singh jee Maharaaj - fought against British kingdom Sant Gyani Jarnail SIngh jee Bhindranwale - fought against Indian government.

    And I think we have become so up-tight that whenever we hear or see images of devi-devta our anus contracts & we get hemorrhoids. We need to relax a bit.  I think we have become RSS-phobic.
    Chandi Mata was a great warrior otherwise Guru Ji would not have mentioned her. There is nothing wrong if Singhs used her images on flags to inspire. Afterall, she was the goddess of war.

    Singh Sahib, Didn't you mean traditional Hindu havan? The havan Udasis do?
    Udasis recite verses from the Matra Sahib, their scripture. Udasis don't reject the demi-gods and agni worship won't be taboo to them.
    As I had said earlier, Sant Jagjit Singh ji Harkhowal Wale have defined the meaning of havan as the awakening of gyan and destruction of avashnas.
    It wouldn't be bad, to do a havan with Gurbani, but It would dichotomize our already divided people. There are many a missionary walking around us and would find the slightest excuse to ostracize open-minded individuals.
    There are many people who want to merge us with them. For instance, neo-Hindus often emphasize in the "Hindu-Sikh oneness". To combat this, Singh Sabha arose. They not only differentiated the definition of Sikh, but almost alienated Sikhs from their past..... 
    I would suggest to do Paath, Jaap or Kirtaan instead of havan, hom etc. Their significance has been mentioned thousands times in Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

    There wasn't one million Mughals. The Sri Zafarnama is written in poetry and the number 1 million is used as a rhetorical device to suggest that the Singhs were heavily outnumbered.
