  1. I am deeply disturbed with this debate, there is nothing wrong in debating but I just wonder that we have given priority to something which can not be resolved in the current climate. already 25 years to delhi massacre no one punished but who cares....we can not afford to fight amongst each other when we are being attacked from outside.. In my opinion prof darshan singh started this topic just like another topic and it has gone out of hands now. why I say that because I have been influenced by his katha before. I once attended diwan at shepherds bush gurdwara where the topic was kachi ba
  2. you can check the translation at the following link. http://www.sikhitothemax.com/page.asp?ShabadID=2897 Guru sahib is comparing the wedding to an ideal wedding of the soul-bride with the eternal lord. In way Guru ji is inspiring the couple to work together towards that ultimate goal of every soul-bride. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji fateh
  3. I used to fear catching some infection thats why never donated blood, it was only when i saw a blood camp at bangla sahib gurdwara i was able to overcome my fear , that was a long time back. its the first time thats most difficult . My mother actually was very angry with me, and i was forced to take bed rest. So when I saw that figure that are only 3% ethnic donars give blood I wasnt surprised because the general mindset in our families is its not good to give blood. I that percentage could even be lower than 3% in sikhs because i sometimes find black or chinese at these camps but not man
  4. "Our recent research findings on blood donation highlight that there’s still a shortage of ethnic donors in Britain. Only three per cent of the 1.6 million people who gave blood last year came from Asian, African and African Caribbean communities. Yet about seven per cent of the UK population are from ethnic minorities." source : http://www.blood.co.uk/pdfdocs/donor_winter2005.pdf Most people are afraid , not of giving blood but of needles. Also some are afraid of catching infection. But it is safe, quick and easy. And those who are afraid of needles, dont look at it and you would
  5. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh I have searched internet and downloaded some softwares as well but its very hard to find translation of shabads that are either from dasam granth or bhai gurdas ji's vaars. In particular I want to find translation of the shabad ' Rehat Pyari mo ko sikh ...' Can someone help please.. thanks
  6. Thats what happens everyday people convert for worldly possession, and some religions support this kind of conversion. Ideally the muslim leaders should have not allowed such a conversion , but we know that would never happen. For them its another number.
  7. well I didnt misunderstand but my views might based on certain posts both on this and other message boards which have a flavour of idol worship. I am talking about people who came out in defense of the birthday celebration video. To me that had a flavour of idol worship. To be honest when i used to learn kirtan , i used to touch feets of my teacher but in that video it looked different. personaly that video definately had a negative vibe. Certainly not good enough to pass an judgement on someone but i thnk there is no harm in being a bit careful.
  8. well guru ji puts one test to define what is kachi bani is and what isnt. let us read again the 24th puadi from anand sahib which is quoted very often Now in the third last line guru ji tells us that some people although chant the name 'har har ' but they do it mechanically , in the next line guru ji further explains that those people whose consciousness is lured by maya do so and do that mechanically . ( here maya will cover all the five vices ) Now no one except guruji knows whats in heart of the people who call themselves sant. It is not for us decide if they are sant or n
  9. Well wearing a tabeez and praying at grave(mazaar is a grave) is not something a amritdhari sikh would do. As she is being shown as a practicing sikh , what example is being set for other people who dont even consider themselves to be proper sikhs. On one hand she is reading mool mantar on the other hand she seeks blessings from dead man sleeping in grave. Someone who is amritdhari would do Nitmem and guru gobind singh clearly tells to ask all the boons from only akaal purakh and not from some dead man sleeping in a grave. Now i dont understand how you compare this with amritdhari women
  10. did anyone watch the latest movie rang de basanti , it shows an amritdhari lady wearing a tabeez which she is wearing because she prayed at a mazaar. anyone who does nitnem would know that an amritdhari sikh would never do such a thing. the director and producer of the movie should be sued for this.
  11. Our thoughts need fuel from our mind , try watching your thoughts as they come and go without actually being part of it, the thoughts will die. and than between these thoughts you will get moments without any thoughts and than slowly will get close to your inner self , the jot of waheguru. i might have oversimplified but do try. But the best thing is when you are listening to kirtan start singing alongside , try to listen and sing , close your eyes , keep your hands folded. it could be a bad day at work or some other problem thats on your mind but try it works for me may be it works
  12. its a time of choice and people choose whats right for them but sometimes we should consider that in doing so we are not breaking law. same applies to people who cut hair but still use the title singh, they drink or smoke and still use the title singh. even more some people have designer beards so called two-in-ones, i find that more disrespectful . guru ji never forced anyone to take amrit or to use the title singh than why are we mocking our guru. if you want to take inspiration from guru granth sahib than guru sahib will not say no to you ( hair or no hair) . but let us not pleas
  13. rajs well its your choice you want to be a christian than let it be. but did you get answers to all your questions or now you have a different set of questions. you can call yourself a christian, a sikh , a hindu or a muslim but does that actually change anything. guru sahib preached truth and did so with humility. be honest and tell me that listening to rehraas sahib in sangat have you not felt guru sahib's presence. or have ever been to gurdwara at amrit vela and did nitnem. i dont need a proof for what can feel.but time has proved that what guru sahib chooses for me is better f
  14. Thats very disturbing and its not sikhi. This happens when people see guru nanaks teaching and creation of khalsa as two seperate things. Guru gobind singh didnt create khalsa to rule a piece of land , for creation of khalistan as we are made to understand these days. Khalsa is to protect the guru nanak's sikhi not create khalistan. The very principles that sikhi is based are being ignored for political reasons. There is no difference between gurbani and nirankar , what right does sgpc have to stop someone from performing kirtan. I remember bhai chaman lal ji was stopped for doing kir
