  1. I just looked through their rebuttal. I'm loving the personal insults - it sounds like someone's got their kachera in a twist. :-D Firstly, I notice that Niddar ill now be writing a book to prove his lineage claims. I'm sure that will be a great read unless his evidence is more unsubtantiated drivel from "oral transripts" that cannot be verified. Given the obvious errors in his rendering of the bani in the history section, it would have been more honourable for Niddar to admit his mistakes and change the offending pages. I will look at it a bit more carefully and respond after the b
  2. is training for TOTAL WAR!!! (by waving his arms in the air)

  3. Given that most of the responses from Niddar's chelay are things like "lol", "ner ner!", and "you should go and learn about Sikhi from the V & A Museum", I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for any kind of firm rebuttal. It's pretty clear also from Niddar's chelay on the SikhSangat website that their knowledge of Sikhi is confused at best. One claimed that if you add together Brahma, Mahesh and Vishnu in some kind of metaphysical sum you get Akal Putakh himself (the same person believes that Giani Gurbachan Singh Bhindrawale didn't know much about Sikhi). Another claimed that he i
  4. For any non-UK sangat who want to be kept up to date, there are regular postings about the issue on sikhsangat.com. Also the Sikh Riot Awareness facebook wall is updated every few minutes: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sikh-Riot-Awareness-UK/148955078520105 K.
  5. Too old for facebook, think I'll just go out with a huge bucket of kfc and kidnap the first wouldbe mugger I come across. By the by, to any Singhs who are thinking that the police will help - they won't do anything. In fact, I would not be surprised if some naive Singh innocently approaches the police and gets a beatdown as a result. They have been watching idly the last few days, crapping themselves at the sight of large groups of youths. Some of them are going to get frustrated and take it out on innocent and harmless looking people because they know they can probably get away wit
  6. Best tumblr/tweets I've found on the riots if you want to keep up to date: http://birminghamriots2011.tumblr.com/ http://londonriots2011.tumblr.com/ Anyone know of any more? I'd really like access to the networks that these "yoof" are using. Seems like it would be a useful tool. Maybe I should kidnap the next wannabe gangsta I see with his mum's teatowel covering his face, lol. K.
  7. To be honest, I think the poor vs. authority is just an excuse. There are plenty of poor people who are not breaking into their local mcdonalds and footlocker. I feel it has more to do with the worship of materialism and pure greed in some "urban" cultures. There definitely seems to be an element of race in the Birmingham riots with majority black youths targeting mostly Asian-owned businesses in the Handsworth area. In fact, it reminds me of the earlier Handsworth riots where exactly the same thing happened. K.
  8. Ashwagandha is useful when recovering from illness (it's an adaptogen, the desi version of ginseng). ALCAR (acetyl l-carnitine) will reduce fatigue and provide a bit of a CNS boost too. And make sure you are taking the usual things like vitamin c, vitamin d3 and zinc. K.
  9. I've read it, thanks, and it is very clear that it has nothing to do with Sufi belief in al-fanaa. All it says is that Allah creates stuff and then destroys stuff. Anyway, I give up arguing with you about this. You already made it clear in the avataars thread that amardeep quotes in this thread that you have difficulty believing in the unique status of our Gurus and the avataars, and wish to elevate mohammed and other prophets to the same level, out of some peculiar notion of political correctness applied to the spiritual sphere. As such, I am sure that you will continue to ignore any
  10. Are you serious? Your counterargument is that the word fanin is used in the quran? In a context which has nothing at all to do with the subject under discussion? K.
  11. Amardeep wrote: Then you said: All you are really saying is that mukti is available to those who follow a religion like Sikhi, given that there is nothing like the idea of union with parabrahman in the Semitic religions and there is little emphasis on nirgun brahman in common hinduism. You certainly do not make any kind of case for Sikhi teaching that all religions lead to God. Sufi ideas like fanaa only entered islam much later through muslim scholars coming into contact with Indic philosophy - there is certainly no such thing in the quran. Even the definition of haqiqat
  12. It's a lengthy and accurate description of Islam's violent history up to the present day mixed in with some fantasy Templar crap and the author's own megalomania. His discussion of the violent totalitarian ideals of Islam is accurate as his belief that a large influx of Muslims into a country eventually leads to attacks on the host country when Muslim numbers reach a large enough number. He was also a crazy murderous psychopath. What's funny is that as soon as the attacks happened, an Islamic organisation claimed responsibility for the attacks and there was widespread rejoicing on t

  15. Scientific research proves that taking ishnaan every day is more hygienic than trimming your short and curlies every 40 days instead. K.
  16. What did you say about yantars? What relation do you think yantars have with Sikhi (honest question, not criticism)? K.

    Prophethood?

    Lots of Talmudic lore entered Islam through a convert Wahb bin Munabbih in the 7th century, including the 18,000 worlds. It's more likely that this was a belief anmong some Muslims at the time of our Gurus rather than being a direct reference to the Talmud. K.

    Prophethood?

    Kateban is plural and refers to the Semitic scriptures. The idea of 18,000 worlds is from the Talmud. From torah.org: http://www.torah.org/features/secondlook/extraterrestrial.html# More on the 18,000 worlds in Judaism: http://www.jewishmag.com/8mag/worlds/worlds1.htm The idea of the quran being corrupted from an earler, gentler version is bullshit, as is the idea that the hadith do not provide reliable historical descriptions of Mohammed (because Mohammed couldn't possibly be the lunatic that is described in them). Articulating either of these ideas would probably get you kille
  19. Akdam chakra seems to be a Gurmukhi version of the Sanskrit Akathaha Chakra from Mantra Shastra which is used to determine how suitable a mantra is for someone to recite. In Mantra Shastra you have four main divisions of the types of mantras - Siddha (accomplished), Susiddha (fully accomplished), Sadya (fit for accomplishment), Ari (enemy). These can be further subdivided into a total of 16 divisions by taking combinations of these 4 qualities so you have Siddha-Siddha, Siddha-Sussidha, Siddha-Sadya, Siddha-Ari and so one with the rest. Each combination is supposed to have different aff
  20. The information is all on that page, but it's not particularly clear what all the yantras are used for and how. These kinds of yantras are written for various material effects, eg the first pandriya one is written and kept in a shop to bring business success (presumably because the square is associated with Ganesha), the second one is another form of the same 3x3 magic square. The next one is formed by assigning numbers to each syllable of Ekoankar Satinam Waheguru as follows 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Ekoankar Sa Ti Na Mu Wa Hi Gu Ru then replacing the numbers in the pandriy
  21. The Yantars you are talking about are on page 87 of the pdf (85 of the granth). They are variations of "magical" squares. Akdam chakra is page 88 of the pdf (86 of the granth), though I have no idea what it is supposed to do. K.
  22. The entire forum (including google cache) and its members (except Zulu) will disappear into the Ultimate when they simultaneously obtain Nirvikalpa Samadhi at Amritvela on 21 December 2012. K.
  23. So, where's the evidence? Or is prurient speculation enough proof for some Sikhs to think the worst of their brothers? K.
  24. For all your talk of accepting the commands of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, it is clear that you moorakhs do no such thing. Instead, you worship the opinion of bewakoofs and apostates like Darshan Lal and Kala Afghana who ignore centuries of Sikh history that recognises the whole of Sri Dasam Granth as indisputibaly the work of Guru Gobind Singh. And please, quit the "we only follow Sri Guru Granth Sahib because Guru Gobind Singh Ji said so" spiel when you clearly have no respect for the bani written by Dasmesh Pita. K.
  25. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! This looks like it will be an interesting book: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/019975506X/ref=pe_3421_23452111_snp_dp Not available to buy yet. The product description on Amazon reads: The Dasam Granth is a 1,428-page anthology of diverse compositions attributed to the tenth Guru of Sikhism, Guru Gobind Singh, and a topic of great controversy among Sikhs. The controversy stems from two major issues: a substantial portion of the Dasam Granth relates tales from Hindu mythology, suggesting a disconnect from normative Sikh theology; a
