  1. Been reading Anita Anand's book on Sophia, who was Maharajah Ranjit Singh's granddaughter. Here's an interesting excerpt regarding the treatment of lascars, who were essentially hired sailors, many of whom came from Panjab. It's interesting to note how M. Duleep Singh, who is commonly characterised as some hedonistic fool in white literature, tried to help these very ill-treated people by opening a refuge in east London (before the anglo establishment attacked him), and how his daughter subsequently did so much for these people too:
  2. Gurfateh all, I hope someone, somewhere can assist me. I am trying locate 'Sardar Khalsa' by Giani Gian Singh. From what I've gathered so far, 'Twarikh Guru Khalsa' was split into 5 sections. Gian Singh signed the rights of this text over to the Khalsa Tract Society. In time the society published 4 of the 5 sections of the granth. My question is does anyone know what happened to the Khalsa Tract Society? Does anyone if the Sardar Khalsa part of Twarikh Guru Khalsa ever published? If so where can I procure this?
  3. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖ਼ਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਿਹ I wanted to share a podcast I've started recording on the life of Guru Gobind Singh. The primary source is Prof. Sahib Singh's book: ਜੀਵਨ ਬ੍ਰਿਤਾਂਤ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ; though some Sakhis are taken from Giani Narain Singh's teeka of ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਤਾਪ ਸੂਰਜ ਗਰੰਥ.

  4. Hi All, I've read a lot of positive news lately between Muslims and Sikhs. lots of shared history between Muslim sufis and Sikh Gurus. However one point of contention seems to be how Muslims and Sikhs view the Mughal ruler Aurangzeb. There seems to be different accounts of his legacy - either a pious Muslim leader who did execute people based purely on political grounds rather than religious ones, - on the other a despotic ruler who forced the Hindus to Islam. Historical records provide evidence for both. What are the views on the people on this forum?
  5. The making of Sikh history – literally. I’d like to humbly submit the text below for my brothers and sisters consideration. I hope you enjoy reading it, and receive as much food for thought from it as I did during the translation. Especial thanks to Kam1825 for taking the time to create and share an ebook of the original work from which the translation is derived (Kavi Sainapati Rachit Sri Gur Sobha edited by Dr. Ganda Singh and published through the Publication Bureau of Punjab University of Patiala, 1st edition 1967, 4th edition 1996). Strangely, a few days after I had fi
  6. Does anyone have any information about Chand Svaarankar's Guru Mehima? Are Any of the of works of Guru Gobind Singh's poets available? With the exceptions Bhai Nand Lal Goya, Bhai Jeevan Singh Ji, Bhai Gurdas Singh, and Kavi Senapat? The Panjab Digital Library doesn't give any details whatsoever about the books and manuscripts they digitize. I read Piara Singh's book, but it only contains a few quotes and stanzas and he doesn't give any reference.

  8. Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh Does anyone know what was done with the dead body of Hollika(aunt of Bhagat Prahalaad jee Maharaaj)? I heard from a mahapurakh (not 100% sure if I remember correctly) that people used her ashes to attain supernatural powers. Thanks a lot. Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh
  9. Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh Has anyone heard any saint or a scholar (belonging to the orthodox sects of Sikhism) explain the origin of the Rakhri festival? By orthodox, I mean Nihangs, Nirmalay, Udhasi, Sevapanthi, etc Thanks. Waheguru jee kaa Khalsa Waheguru jee kee Fateh

  12. Just wondering whether the two interacted and if anything occurred between them. Giani Gian Singh states the Damdami Bir to have been the most authentic composition of Gurbani, but research indicates its actually the Pir Buddhu Shah Bir at Anandpur. http://tisarpanth.blogspot.co.nz/2013/07/giani-gian-singh-nirmalas-gian.html But just like the Singh-Sabha edited Bhangu's Prachin Panth Prakash, do you think they might also have done something similar to Giani Ji's work? His other works are quite consistent with accuracy.
  13. One of the most able administrators and ruler in India was undoubtedly Chhatrapati Shivaji. He was the founder of the Maratha Empire in India. With his flawless warrior skills and unlimited courage, he ruled the Deccan region, parts of central India and parts of modern day Pakistan with a firm hand. It was due to his efforts that the Mughals faced a decline in their empire. Using guerilla warfare techniques, he was successful in annexing a major portion of the Mughal Empire. Given here is a short biography about Chatrapati Sivaji that covers his life history briefly. So check out information o
  14. Don’t sign up to Gove’s insulting curriculum, Schama urges Simon Schama, the historian who advised the Government on the new national curriculum, has issued a stinging criticism of the final syllabus, urging teachers to reject it.Prof Schama, who visited classes as part of his research, called the finalised document “insulting and offensive”, “pedantic and utopian” and accused Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, of constructing a “ridiculous shopping list” of subjects. The new curriculum proposes to teach children history in chronological order, and is intended to give them a sense o
  15. Do we have a list of the lineage of Akal Takhat jathedars right uptill Gyani Gurbachan Singh Ji. And can anyone elaborate on why jathedari was snatched away from the Buhda dal and if it was returned to the Akalis once more, than would it specifically have to be given to a Budha Dal jathedar or can it be given to the jathedar of any other dal?
