    Trimandeep Singh got a reaction from Jageera in Jhatka of Fruits   
    Gursikho, I am neutral on this topic of offering eatables To Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
    I just put forward the opinions of Scholars and Gursikhs.
    We already know that bhog of degh is gurmat. But if we read opinions of scholars like Giani Harbans Singh Ji on offering of eatables and those of sampradas, then both of their points seem convincing and in line with Gurmat.
    I am not against or in favour of this practice.

    True.
     
    Worshipping idols, bowing towards a specific direction, bowing in front of Qabars (coffins), Rakhi (rakhri), are all symbolism which are rejected by Sikhism even though we can learn from them. 
    From Idol worship, we should worship Vaheguru. From Bowing in front of Qabars, we should respect Sants and mahapurush. From Rakhi, we should protect anyone in need.

    Devi devte do exist because in bani,Guru sahib says that these Devi devte praise Vaheguru at his feet. In Sri Chandi di Vaar, guru sahib says Akaal Purakh CREATED demons to keep the Devi devte's ego and pride in check.
    They all came on earth to spread Dharma but eventually fell into the trap of 5 vices.

    I don't think guru sahib gave some additional/different Rehat to different sampradas. 
    If guru sahib ordered the Taksaal to read shudh bani and do abhyaas regularly, it was for Nihangs too. If guru sahib ordered Nihangs to practice shastar Vidya regularly,then it's hukam for Taksaal, Nirmale and Nanaksar too.
    Every Sikh needs to become a Nihang.
    I think you understand me and my opinions better now so let's just leave this.

    I don't want to comment on that. I'll never drink it but my respect for Nihang Singhs has always remained the same. I respect the opinions of those who drink Sukha. 
    You are comparing Jhatka to Alcohol? 
    Why would a Sikh offer to Agni Devta??? Let me remind of your status... A Sikh who follows Rehat and does naam jap is higher than the Devte. All Brahmgyanis are higher than the devte.
    I'll just tell you a real story not going into much details. You would probably have heard that Indra Devta is very insecure towards his throne, fearing he would lose his position. Gurmukhs say that when Sikhs do naam abhyaas, his throne shakes. Once Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh Ji was doing naam jap with other jatha gurmukhs and they got a vision of Indra Devta scared and insecure seeing his throne shaking. They then told him that they were not after his throne so rest assured.
    This tells us that gurmukhs are higher than any of the devte. We don't need to offer something to Agni Devta when we can communicate directly with the Sargun Saroop of Akal Purakh.

    Do you even know what you said? Amrit Sanchaars, Akhand Paaths and Sehaj Paaths are always for a purpose and above the Sato Gun. All these rituals like havan (acc to me) and all are within the three gunns. Sikh Maryada has been passed by the Gurus and can't be called mere rituals. (Don't want to talk about Havan, but overall all practices started by gurus are above three gunns)
    Is he lazy that he can't do Paath and do praises of Vaheguru? If someone does Paath for us, then it will surely benefit but isn't it wrong that he expects us to do Paath for him?! Moreover, you are contradicting your own point. You said earlier that we need to do havan so that Agni Devta communicates our message to Vaheguru Ji.
    But what help are you asking them for? Though the panth is always there for us to help, but under any circumstances we can ask non Sikhs for help, but those are small favours, not 'communicating our message to Vaheguru'. 
    And when did I write anything that supports worship of Devi devte?
    They may help us but you are asking us to do havan, read Paath and ask the Devte to communicate our message to Vaheguru which is an insult to Guru sahib who gave us bani to have darshan of him anytime.
    They are a creation of Vaheguru, exactly my point! They themselves don't have direct access to Vaheguru then how can they even communicate our message to him? They are not mukt and they long for this human body, as bani clearly states. We are at a better position from them to get mukt and have darshan of Vaheguru.
    Do you know even Devi Lakshmi sweeps the floor at Sri Darbar Sahib? And yes, if we ever get a chance to serve the devte, then surely we will serve them some roti, yellow dal and my fav kheer... And also polish their sandals or footwear, whatever they wear... Lol
    I think that avastha does play a role but it also depends on your faith. I have no avastha but I am 100% sure that if I ask something (in line with Gurmat) to Vaheguru Ji with good intentions and true heart, I will surely get it. Ardaas is also a form of communication with Vaheguru, in fact, DIRECT communication with him.
    And about those sava Lakh japs, I think your Prahlabdh karams also play a role in this. There have been people who experienced Jot vigasi avastha even before taking Amrit! So, it doesn't necessarily depend on your current avastha, but your karams too. 
    Brahmgyanis like Baba Nand Singh Ji or Bhai Saab would never do japs to obtain any Ridhi sidhi. Sikhs always yearn for the darshan of Vaheguru rather than doing specific japs to obtain a Ridhi sidhi. They are just a by product of one's bhagti and a Sikh should NEVER do Paath to obtain specific ridhis sidhis.
    I am not saying that Sukha and jhatka are wrong, but if they were, Guru sahib would still have never allowed them to consume it, even if they follow the toughest lifestyle. Wrong is wrong and can't be justified if you do more Paath, but it may be neglected if you are sorry for it. 
     
    I thought Dasam bani satisfied the hunger of shastars rather than making them hungrier. But I may be wrong, please try to find a pankti related to this.

    Will surely be extremely grateful. But I think Vaheguru just took a Sewa from them and gave them a chance to cut their bad karams. When it comes to communicating with Vaheguru, we don't need anyone to do that for us because Guru sahib has already given us a way.
    But not like a messenger, doing work like this (communicating messages of people to him) 
    We are insulting guru sahib because we are using our own Manmat ways to talk with Vaheguru Ji when he has already given us a way to communicate with him. We are not cherishing his gift.
    I don't think it is similar to doing sidhi of a mantar. My point was not to stick to a specific shabad to obtain specific powers. Doing sidhi to fight vikaars or for health purposes is fine but shouldn't be the case with obtaining powers. I don't think any gurmukh mahapurush did paath to obtain ridhi sidhis, they did paath just to have darshan and that SHOULD be the case with all of us. Else everything will be taken care of by Guru sahib.
    But that hukamnaama point does make sense.
    Give me one evidence when Khalsa Fauj tried to take help of Devi devte to fight battles. I would again say,it will be an insult to Vaheguru. We already have Dasam bani and mool mantar with us which are much stronger than the devi devte. We don't need their help when we have bani.
     
    Yes but I didn't talk about that. I always meant the sidhis which refer to materialistic things.

    I was saying that in light of Gurbani. In terms of word ritual used, it's implied meaning is often, if not always, empty rituals and symbolisms.
    Leave that. Still my point is that when Devi devte themselves don't have any access to Vaheguru, then how can they help us communicate with him? We are insulting guru sahib who gave us bani to have darshan of Vaheguru any time we want.
    One shouldn't ask for ridhi sidhis. Even if you want to help people, just do an ardaas and we all know that Vaheguru always keeps the laaj of his gursikhs. 
    When people say that this sant did a miracle or something, then we should correct them and tell that it is Vaheguru who is keeping the laaj of his gursikhs. The sants never use the Ridhi sidhis they obtain, unless to fulfill any hukam of guru sahib.
    Gurbani clearly states that one should not focus on ridhi sidhis nor use them for selfish purposes because they keep you away from path of Vaheguru.

    Trimandeep Singh got a reaction from GurjantGnostic in Keski ????   
    I bet a Nihang Singh's dumalla can't come off. They are the most tyar-bar-tyar of all. 
    Also, patka should be discouraged because it was not given to us by Guru sahib and it leads to beadbi of kes. I have myself experienced this. When you try a knot behind, the hairs come in between the strips (taniyaan whatever you say lol) and when you remove your patka, the hairs are too removed. Daas tied a patka till 15 years but then with guru sahib's kirpa, switched to a Keski and a dumalla.
    I completely agree with you. But AKJ doesn't enforce this on the entire Panth. They mention Keski a kakaar only in their Amrit Sanchaar Smaagams.
    Most of the AKJ singhs have no problem if someone considers Kesh as kakaar because they believe that still, Keski is mandatory for a Sikh so if they are still wearing a keski all the time, then there's no violation of Rehat.
    Surely Gurmat Bibek should also have explained the Sangat that Kesh is considered a kakaar by majority of Panth and then they should have stated their point of view that why they consider Keski and not Kes as a kakaar.
    And FYI, I have seen some videos of Nihangs talking about the keski Rehat. They say that even though Kesh is a kakaar but still a Khalsa should always tie a dumalla on a Keski. For them, Keski is mandatory and same is the case with Taksal.
    Now I don't know that according to you, it will be a recommendation or an enforcement but yes, if you follow them, then you should always support a Keski and not modern day patka.

    Trimandeep Singh got a reaction from GurjantGnostic in Following All Rehatname   
    I don't need to hide my inability to answer that question. Puratan AKJ singhs probably follow this but not Singhs abroad.  
    Also, I had cleared this point before.
    Taksaal too claims of having the most authentic Rehat sources and same is with the Nihangs, yet they have minor disputes. 
    You are going so much into differences which either creates a negative impression of yours or the jathebandi. 
    You should have a problem with AKJ if they don't respect the opinions of other jathebandis and label them as qurehtia. They practice their Rehat (which is accepted in the Panth) within their own smagams and for your information, other jathebandis have been involved in this stuff of defaming other jathebandis.
    Few years back, the Jagowale were spreading a serious anti-AKJ propaganda on Social media when they did bhog of a Samagam at Mundawni despite knowing that it is optional to do bhog at Ragmaala. So who's doing all this stuff? 
    I am not at all anti-Jagowaala but your opinions on other jathebandis are surely not cooperative. 
    Some practices of the Nihangs are not followed by Taksaal because they think it is Manmat but they keep it within their own jatha and refrain from touching these topics to maintain their pyaar and satkaar for other sampradas. All these differences in Rehat and interpretations is a khed of Vaheguru and only he knows how this will benefit the Panth.
    We all should have this attitude of Taksaal than trying our best to find faults in someone else's Rehat.

    1. He was chosen by Dashmesh Pita to lead the panth.
    2. After Khalsa Raj came, he didn't become a political leader or a king but went to the hills to do bhagti. He had absolutely no attachments.
    3. If Baba ji would have done something like that, how can he give a shahaadat like that? You do know that his son's heart was put into his mouth. This torture was out of this world. If he was a patit/tankhaiya, how can he give a Mahaan shahaadat like this?!
