    amardeep got a reaction from Kaur1510 in Sarbloh Granth   
    That is the tradition around it - that it was compiled in Hazoor Sahib and entered Punjab around the Maharaja Ranjit Singh period.

    I think Pandit Tara Singh Narotam is the first Sikh to mention the Sarbloh Granth around the 1860s or 1870s. Before that it is neither mentioned nor quoted from.

    amardeep got a reaction from sarabatam in Manglacharan of Bhavrasamrit by Pandit Gulab Singh   
    The following are mentioned in the manglacharan:
    Ik Oankaar Satgur Prasaad
    Ram Chander
    Guru Nanak
    Guru Gobind Singh
    Vidiyaguru Maan Singh
     
    According to Bhai Tirath Singh Ram Chander is praised in the beginning due to his position as the Yug avatar of a previous age. This position is then extended to Guru Nanak wherein it is explicitely stated that Guru Nanak has come in Kalyug and has removed the older practices of the previous yuga. In this way both are considered as Yug avatars with Guru Nanak having replaced Ram Chander.  Whereas Ram Chander is praised for having built a bridge that brought people across the ocean of existence, - Guru Nanak is praised as being the raft itself that will carry people across the ocean of existence. The lineage is then continued to Guru Gobind Singh and down to Pandit Maan Singh from whom Pandit Gulab Singh got his knowledge (Vidiya, Shanti, Sugyaan and Sukhi).

    amardeep got a reaction from sarabatam in Singh means the Highest Self" - Gobind Gita P:10-really interesting passage from Gobind Gita   
    There are many passages within the Gobind Gita that links it to the Khalsa. I studied it some years ago and came across many passages similiar to this:
    These teachings apply equally to the Khalsa
    It was for the benefit of the Khalsa, that Krishna discussed these topics. etc. Sarbloh Granth at many Places also Refer to the Gita and Upanishads

    Minas and Masands are now largely extinct. Dhir Malias have descendants to this day (the Sodhis of Kartarpur), and there are Ram Raiyas in Dehra Dun. In the 1891 census 52,317 Hindus and 30,396 Sikhs returned themselves as 'Ram Raia' . (Census of India, 1891, Vol.XX and Vol.XXI, The Punjab and its Feudatories, by E.D. Maclagan, Part II and III, Calcutta, 1892, pp.826-9 and pp.572-3.) However there are no contemporary official numbers, (see also the note at the end of the Explanatory Introduction).

    The Mina tradition eventually died out during the 1800s - I dont think it was a competitive strike at Guru Granth Sahib but rather an indication of Sikh supremacy in literature and influence.

    not at all. It's from the early reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. It belongs to the Mina literature.
    It's heavily influenced by the style, vocab and meters of Guru Granth Sahib. I've seen it referenced in writings on how the Guru Granth Sahib influenced Punjabi literature and sacred writings outside the Sikh fold

    Katha Shaheed Singhs

    ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਕਲਗੀਧਰ ਥਿਰੇ, ਸਿਦਕੀ ਸਿਖ ਤੀਰਾ ।
    One day Kalgidhar [Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji] was sitting with his faithful [Sidhki] Sikhs.
     

    ਮੁਹਕਮ ਸਿੰਘ ਅਰ ਦਯਾ ਸਿੰਘ, ਹਿੰਮਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਧੀਰਾ ।
    [Piara] Mohkam Singh, [Piara] Daya Singh and the content [Piara] Himmat Singh were also present

    panja pyareya chon, bhai daya singh ji, bhai mohkam singh ji te bhai himmat singh ji vi hajuri vich san

    ਇੱਤ੍ਯਾਦਿਕ ਕਰ ਜੋਰਿ ਕੈ, ਅਸ ਗਿਰਾ ਬਖਾਨੀ ।
    At that moment all three of them folded their hands and made the following supplication,
    ohs samme tinna ne apne apne hath jodde te satguraan nu eh vinamr benti keeti,
     
     
    'ਸ੍ਰੀ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਹਮੈ ਬਤਾਈਐ, ਜਿਸ ਤੇ ਅਨੁਜਾਨੀ ॥੪॥
    "Oh Guru Ji, please enlighten us on a topic we have no knowledge of. [4]
    Satguru ji kirpa kar ke saanu ehs vishe te gyaan baksho, jide vare asi anjaan haan,

    ਕਿਨ ਕੋ ਨਾਮ ਸ਼ਹੀਦ ਹੈ, ਕ੍ਯਾ ਕਿਰਤ ਕਰੰਤੇ ? ।
    The beings known as Shaheeds, What do they do?

    jede paani ne jina nu shaheed keha janda aa, oh ki karde han?
     
     
    ਗਤਿ ਮਿਤ ਇਨ ਕੀ ਕੌਨ ਹੈ, ਕ੍ਯਾ ਸ਼ਕਤਿ ਧਰੰਤੇ ? ।
    What is their limit? What is their code of conduct? What is their power?

    ਜਿਸ ਥਲ ਬਾਸਾ, ਹੈ ਕਿਤਿਕ, ਪਦਵੀ ਇਨ ਕੇਤੀ ।
    Where do they stay? What is their elevated position?
    oh kithe rehnde ne te ohna di ki awasta aa?

    You are the knower of all this knowledge, for this reason we have come to you for answers."[5]

    ਸੁਨਿ ਸਿੱਖਨ ਤੇ ਗੁਰ ਹਸੇ, ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਮੁਖ ਫੁਰਮਾਯੋ ।
    Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji laughed after hearing this question and said the following,
    eh sawal sun ke pehla ta maharaj ji hass paye, fir shromani mukh chon eh bole,

    'ਗੁਪਤ ਹੁਤੀ ਬੂਝੀ ਤੁਮਹੁ, ਕਹਿਬੋ ਬਨਿ ਆਯੋ ।
    "This topic of which you have asked was to be kept secret but because you have asked I will answer your questions."

    Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji was the protector of the Sangat

    ਸੇਵਕ ਕੀ ਪਤਿ ਰਾਖਤੇ, ਆਪੇ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੰ ॥੬॥
    The complete Guru is the one who protects the honour of his devotees. [6]

    The Guru nourishes every Sikh and does not ever forget them.
    guru apne sikh di pooran pratpaalna karda hai, te ohnu kade visaarda nahi,

    ਤਾੜਤਿ ਹੈ ਬਹੁ ਭਾਂਤਿ ਤੇ, ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਬਹੁ ਭੇਖਾ ।
    If a Sikh does something wrong a Guru has many methods on correcting them by adopting numerous forms.

    je koi sikh koi galti ya bhul kare, ta satguraan kol ohna bhula nu sudharan de bhin bhin raah hunde han, tareeke hunde han ohnu bhula da sudhar karan lai..

    ਹੁਕਮ ਸੱਤਿਤਾ ਟਿਕਨਿ ਮਨ, ਸਿੱਖਨ ਗੁਰ ਦੇਖਾ ॥੭॥
    A Sikh should adopt truth and accept the will of God, these are what the Guru keeps an eye on and tests. [7]

    That being will swim across the worldly ocean if they are martyred in battle. They are liberated without needing to meditate or undergo austerities.

    Hey Sikho! Ehnu shaheeda di rehet behet jaan'na karo.

    ਤੁਮ ਮੇਰੇ ਪ੍ਰਿਯ ਸਿੱਖ ਹੋ, ਬੂਝੀ, ਕਹਿ ਤੈਸੇ ।
    [Piara] Daya Singh you are my beloved Sikh so due to this I have told you what i know about them

    Daya Singh ji tusi saade preey ho, jede kaaran asi aapnu ehe jaankaari ditti hai,

    ਅਹੈਂ ਸਾਥ ਜੇ ਸ਼ਕਤਿ ਧਰਿ, ਤਿਨ ਸੰਗਤਿ ਜੋਈ ।
    The nine Naths congregate to see the Shaheeds

    jedde 9 naath han, oh shaheeda de darshanaa lai ekattar hunde han.
    ਸਿੱਧ ਅਹੈਂ ਸਮੁਦਾਇ ਸੋ, ਸਿੱਧੀ ਧਰ ਸੋਈ ॥੨੨॥
    The eighty four Sidhs are also under the will and command of the Shaheeds. [22]

    84 sidh vi shaheeda de adheen han, ohna de hukam vich han,

    ਹੈਂ ਦੀਨ ਵਾਲੀ ਜਿਸੈ, ਬਹੁ ਦੀਨ ਕਮਾਵੈ ।
    The nation of prophet Mohammed [The Muslim people] are also under the subjection of the Shaheeds

    paigambar mohammad saheb te ohna de muslin dharmi log vi shaheeda de wass han.
    ਲਖਹੁ ਮੁਹੰਮਦ ਕੀ ਅਹੈ, ਤਿਹ ਨਿਕਟ ਰਹਾਵੈ ।
    The hundreds and thousands of muslims are under the subjecation of the Shaheeds and Mohammed stays close to them

    sankadde hajaaraan musalmaan shaheeda de hukam vi han., te mohammad saheb ohna de sameep ho vassde ne,
     

    ਨਾਮ ਜਨਾਇਤ ਤਾਂਹਿ ਕੌ, ਜਗ ਬਿਖੈ ਕਹਾਵੈ ।
    In the world the Muslim nation is well known and they remain under the command of the Shaheeds

    ehs sansaar vich islaam parchallat panth hai, oh vi shaheeda de hajur hath banni khadda hai..

    ਕ੍ਯਾ ਕਹੀਯਹਿ ਇਸ ਬਾਤ ਕੋ, ਕ੍ਯਾ ਕਿਸਹਿ ਸੁਨਾਵੈਂ ॥੨੩॥
    What should we say and who should we tell about the Shaheed Singhs. [23]

    asi ehna vaare ki kahiye te kenu kaheeye? Agaadh katha hai!

    ਨਿਗੁਰੇ ਬੇਮੁਖ ਹੋਤਿ ਜੇ, ਕਰਤੇ ਮਨ ਭਾਯਾ ।
    The bad, apostates and those who live in accordance to their mind

    maade bande jo apni matt anusaar rehnde han,

    ਤਨ ਤ੍ਯਾਗਤਿ ਹੁਇਂ ਭੂਤਨੇ, ਤਨ ਪ੍ਰੇਤ ਕੁ ਪਾਯਾ ।
    When they die they will become ghosts

    jaddo oh marde aa, pret ban jaande han,

    ਤਨ ਤ੍ਯਾਗਤਿ ਹੁਇਂ ਭੂਤਨੇ, ਤਨ ਪ੍ਰੇਤ ਕੁ ਪਾਯਾ ।
    When they die they will become ghosts and then be given a ghostly body

    marno baad ohna nu pisaachaan da shareer parapat hunda hai,

    ਸੰਕਟ ਬਿਖੈ ਬਿਤਾਵਤੇ, ਨਿਜ ਬੈਸ ਮਹਾਂਨੀ ।
    Then they will endure a life of hardship

    fir oho kathnaaiya bhari jindagi basar karde aa,

    ਗੁਰ ਬਿਨ ਕਿਮ ਸੁਖ ਕੌ ਲਹੈਂ, ਅੰਧੇ ਅੱਗ੍ਯਾਨੀ'॥੨੪॥
    Without the Guru how can an ignorant person gain peace and bliss?"[24]

    guru baahjho ehe agyaani, kidda mukti te anand nu parapat ho sakde han?

    ਸੁਨਿ ਸਿੱਖਨਿ ਗੁਰ ਕੋ ਬਚਨ, ਮਨ ਬਿਖੈ ਬਸਾਯੋ ।
    All of the Sikhs listened to the words of the Guru and adopted the teachings of the Guru

    sarbbatt samooh sikh sangat ne satguraan de ehna saare amrit mayi bachana nu sarwan keeta, te apne amal vich lyaanda.

    'ਧੰਨ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਪੂਰਨ ਕਲਾ, ਤੁਮ ਸਕਲ ਬਤਾਯੋ ।
    [Piara] Daya Singh Ji said,"Oh God, master, you are truely complete and have told us everything

    daya singh ji ne kehna keeta, ki he Parmeshar Naanak Saroop Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj! Aap ji sach vich sampooran te samrath guru ho!! Saanu saare sawaala de jawaab ditte ne!
    ਪਰੇ ਸ਼ਰਨ ਤੁਮਰੀ ਮਲਿਨ, ਲਿਹੁ ਆਪ ਸੁਧਾਰੀ ।
    Oh King we are full of dirt and have come into your shelter

    ji mahaaraaj: guru garib nivaaj, asi puri tara maile haa, jo aapdi sharan aaye haan,

    ਕ੍ਯਾ ਜਾਨਹਿਂ ਨਰ ਮੰਦ ਮਤਿ, ਗਤਿ ਅਗਮ ਅਪਾਰੀ ॥੨੫॥
    beings like us with bad mind, what are we to understand or know? Your knowledge is beyond comprehension."[25]

    amardeep got a reaction from Kaur1510 in The high moral character of Sri Laxman Ji   
    in the introduction to the Dasam Granth there is a sakhi where Maharaj blesses a woman by touching her with the tip of his arrow. She asks him why he did not touch her with his hand, and he says "I have never, and will never ever touch a woman besides my own wife".

    very beautiful. A similiar story can be found with Imam Ali when he was fighting Aisha in war and he sent a man to pick her arm and bring her to him. she said "how dare you touch me?" (as it is haram for a muslim man to touch a woman) whereas the man removed his scarf and she saw that it was her brother. Imam Ali sent her brother to go get her instead of letting a non-family member touch her.

    There is nothing in Islam that suggests that wahi(revelation) is not possible after the Prophet. I think Rumi and Al Ghazali also claimed to recieve words of God and even in the Quran there are examples of non-prophets recieving revelations (the mother of Jesus etc).

    Dalsingh:

    There is a saying: Nanak Shah faqeer. Hindu ka Guru, musalman ka pir.

    In the mystic traditions of Islam and "hinduism" it is only the guru/pir who can evolve you spiritually, and not the rituals described in the quran/vedas.

    That the saying says Pir for the muslims and not rasul/nabi says it all. Its not "bowing down to Islam" as some would say but rather that the two religions are compatible hence on two different levels.

    The Gurus never used the terms rasul or nabi, nor are these titles given to the Gurus in the persian hymns of Bhai Nand Lal.

    From an Islamic sufi point of view Sikhi could be considered a tariqa, an order with a Sheikh that guides the individual above the sharia level. As far as I remember, the titles of supreme Sheikh and murshid are given to the Gurus in Bhai Nand Lals hymns which means that when Bhai Nand Lal presented Sikhi to a muslim audience he never claimed that the Gurus were prophets after Muhammad.

    amardeep got a reaction from harsharan000 in Which religion is The Best   
    It is an ancient discussion in all major religions whether the rule set is to be followed eternally by the people or whether one can reach such a state where one does not need to follow the rules anylonger. The jews of the Kabalah, Sufis of Islam etc all claimed that it was possible to reach a higher stage where rules (Talmud/Sharia) no longer applied to them because "the rules are a walking stick that teaches you how to walk. Once you learn to walk you no longer need the stick and hence get rid of it".
    I've heard some Sikhs say the same, - that the rahit becomes insignificant at some point because you are already living Sikhi inside out - the soul being in constant vibration. one Singh cited this tuk as ref:
    ਕਬੀਰ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਇਕ ਸਿਉ ਕੀਏ ਆਨ ਦੁਬਿਧਾ ਜਾਇ ॥
    Kabeer, when you are in love with the One Lord, duality and alienation depart.
    ਭਾਵੈ ਲਾਂਬੇ ਕੇਸ ਕਰੁ ਭਾਵੈ ਘਰਰਿ ਮੁਡਾਇ ॥੨੫॥
