  1. Bhaji I know muharni lol. Punjabi is my first language. Here I am talking about those siharis that are on the last letter of the word. For example - ਆਦਿ My point is that this is not pronounced as Aad, as we would normally say it, rather it is pronounced as Aadi.
  2. Yes I know that. I believe Mata Sahib Dewan to be my mother but Mai Bhago ji, Bibi Bhani ji, Mata Sulakhani ji, Mata Gujri ji, Bebe Nanaki are also my mothers. My point wasn't to diminish the contribution to Mata Sahib Dewan, although I see I have some learning to do in that regard, it was to highlight the importance of all the other mothers and fathers who have contributed and are not being talked about here or in the present mainstream Ardas. I am not saying "don't mention Mata Sahib Dewan because she is not important". I am saying "Mention these others figures as well" in the form
  3. In Gurbani ਜੋਰ is used also. I don't agree. He isn't pronouncing the siharis. I thought you and @paapiman agreed with me that Siharis should be pronounced?
  4. In Guru Granth Sahib, Maya ji is the central Maternal figure. There are many references to Maya ji as Mother in Guru Granth Sahib if anyone reads it attentively. The Ardas also starts with Prithm Bhagauti simar kai, which is referring to Maya ji. So I would say that just about covers the Divine Mother. But as for specific historical mothers - Why isn't Mai Bhago ji mentioned in the Ardas? or Bebe Nanaki ji? or Bibi Bhani ji? These mothers played a far more important role in Sikh history than Mata Sahib Dewan. While we are on this train - What abou
  5. Well I was going to suggest that they are an alien race from planet BRX90 from our neighbouring star and are sent on earth as our overlords and for our entertainment. But sure let's go with "are these people for real?"
  6. Well it'll be like Marijuana. How hard was it to get it in Canada during the period it was banned? It was actually rather easy. But what it did was that it made criminals out of everyday people, some of who were suffering from diseases that are healed by marijuana. And it drove Marijuana into the black market, which is unregulated. So you never knew what you are getting. The same thing will happen with guns. Should you encourage or discourage our people to learn shastar vidya of guns? So do you think you are encouraging or discouraging shastar vidya
  7. They will fall in to the hands of criminals regardless of whether they are banned or not. But whether or not they fall into the hands of good, law-abiding people, that is the question. If you ban guns, good people will not have access to them. And if good people cannot get access to them, they cannot protect themselves from the criminals who will have them... and from the government who will also have them. Remember when you prevent the people of a nation, from getting access to guns, while simultaneously giving government access to guns, all you are doing is making the gov
  8. You cannot have a friendship with God without fearing him. There is no Love of God without the Fear of God. Why is that? Because it is the Fear of God that destroys Ahankar, the separation between you and God.
  9. True. That's the "official spelling". Partially true. It's the e, eh thing again. Like Siharis are pronounced as - short e and short eh - Aunkars are pronounced both ways as well - short u and short o. Some people say bull (lips), some people say boll. Some people say sikh (student), some people say sekh. Either way you pronounce it, Joru/Joro/Joroo, it changes the meaning of the word to something else. Pronouncing ਜੋਰੁ as Joru makes it sound like Joroo (wife). Pronouncing ਜੋਰੁ as Jor-oh makes it sound like Joro (to connect, fix) So ਜੋ
  10. Why was it closed down? srigranth.org and sridasam.org are invaluable resources.
  11. Joroo Joru same thing In Hindi it is spelled and pronounced both ways. जोरू/जोरु In Indian languages, pronunciation and spelling of similar vowels can be (and are often) interchanged. For example - ਉਤਮ ਊਤਮ This is because Long U vs Short U sounds are not that different. There is a difference but it is small. So if you pronounce the Aunkar on ਜੋਰੁ Jor it changes the meaning of the word to Joru/Joroo. Unique Purpose of Aunkar Now suppose that's not the case. Suppose we live in another world where these related similar-sounding vowels are never inte
  12. Intelligence isn't reading a book, it is solving problems in the right ways. What are the benefits you are looking for exactly?
  13. On some words pronouncing the Aunkar changes the meaning of the word to something else. E.g. if you pronounce the Aunkar on ਜੋਰੁ it changes the meaning of the word. Instead of being Jor "power", it becomes Joru "wife". The aunkar in ਜੋਰੁ is only there to indicate a singular, masculine word, so a singular power source. ਤਿਸ ਤੇ ਭਾਰੁ ਤਲੈ ਕਵਣੁ ਜੋਰੁ ॥ What Power holds and supports the weight of this world? ਜੋਰੁ here is singular masculine word - Power - and the aunkar indicates that. Same with ਭਾਰੁ and ਕਵਣੁ. Bhar means "weight". Bharu means "one who applies weight". So
