  5. “Namdharis” to whom the whole sikh community does not consider “Sikhs”, their present head Thakur Dalip Singh is talking about expensation of Sikhism. The way he (Dalip Singh) is talking to promote our sikh religion, nobody talks like him amongst our selfs. We guys are always mad at each other, fighting over the useless petty issues and use abusive language. Even though we don’t accept namdhari as “Sikhs” but we must watch his video and try to understand his concept of promoting “Sikhism”.
  6. Why we are called Sikhs? Sikh name to Sikh religion which Guru Ji gave. I am Sikh since generations. I am proud of being a Sikh. Sikhism is the best modern and progressive religion. Non Sikhs ask me and I want answers for the following questions. 1. Which Guru Ji started Sikh religion? 2. In which year Guru Ji started Sikh religion? 3. At which place Guru Ji started Sikh religion? 4. In which place and year Guru Ji declared that my religion name is “Sikh” 5. In which place and year which Guru Ji declared that my religion is a separate from others, and it is a separate Kaum also. If any Guru Ji made Sikhs a separate Kaum (nation) he must have written in SGGS. 6. Is our Sikh religion a religion or Kaum(nation) While answering please mention name of book and page, edition year etc. I tried very hard to find answers to these questions from old Janam Sakhis, Panth Prakash, Gur bilas, Suraj Prakash, Guru Granth Sahib, Bhai Gurdas Ji and Dasam Granth also. But no where it is written about my questions. Please do not quote from Modern history books. Please help me.
  7. Why and how Sikhi spread throught the world in old days? My topic means : how and why several crore people from many Asian regions, all religions and all ideologies became followers of Guru Nanak Dev ji i.e. Guru Nanak Nam Leva, who were later called Sikhs? What was chrishma in Him which attracted people inlarge numbers without modern techniques of communication? I did not agree with people who say “Guru Nanak was very intelligent, due to that people became his followers”, that is not possible. Because during that period and now a days there are several people who are very intelligent and very good orators but still people donot become their followers in large numbers. There must be something else, which is not evident. Pl tell us with detail. In this forum there is a thread “why sikhi failed to spread”, By amardeep in 2015, which is very educative and eye opener. After reading that i became interested in this forum. I hope members of this forum can throw light on this topic also. I request everybody to give us knowledge about this topic. Even in this period there are about 11crore Guru Nanak Leva people mostly in India, many of them cannot understand Hindi leave aside Punjabi. We must analise: with so much language barrier and hardships of communications , why and how they became followers Guru Nanak Dev ji in those days or later? After 500yrs still they are his devotee, why? How their devotion/attachment survived when there is no contact/preaching/support from Sikh clergy/SGPC etc? I know many hard core Sikhs or who are in power, who are in posession of main gurdwara and goolks and so called mainstrem Sikhs donot consider them as Sikhs but as per my opinion they are Sikhs. They are real real Sikhs devotees, true disciples of Guru Nanak Dev ji because they have devotion inside, which is real Sikhi. Because Sikhi is not with any particular uniform or dress code or even kes/hair are not neccessory element of Sikhi as per Gurubani, Sikhi is with devotion to Guru Nanak Dev ji. I request everybody to give us knowledge about this topic.

    Meaning of GurDwara.

    Hi, Meaning of the words should be understood in SURTTI called holy spirit. The word Gurdwara is made up of two words; one is Gur, which stands for DHANGHH or formula or logical reasoning called intuition. Dwara means a communal place where you can come together to ponder over His Word. So, in the Gurdwara, Sangatt should ponder over His Word and then be able to Preach Gospel to the local. Sikhism is continuation of Christianity and Sikh should tell them the names of the Five Husbands of the Samaritan Woman at well in John 4. They were Kaam, Karodhh, etc. Men of letters call her a prostitute. She was St.Photina.
  9. Good day everyone, After having spent years contemplating about Truth, God, Sikhism, Gurus and time spent studying Astronomy, Universe and meditating. I have been compelled to share my inner feelings and experiences. Before I begin allow me to introduce myself. From the very beginning as far as I can recall, I have always been interested in finding the answers to the basic questions that mankind has always asked. I have been always interested in studying and knowing more about the Universe , our place in the universe, our existence and purpose in human life. The consciousness and basically what really is the Truth. Born as a Sikh and studying Guru's message, observing and looking at the Sikh community. Studying Science and Astronomy and this is what I have observed and feel an urge to share with the Sikh community : We as Sikhs have completely went astray from the very basic teaching of the Sikh Gurus. We like to talk big , wear big kirpans, talk about how strictly we follow the rehat maryada, yet we fail to even observe and feel the pain of a poor person dying on the street or someone going without food. Its like a policeman who takes great pride in wearing a uniform, but never enforces the law. We have become more like a religion. A religion ----- which divides humanity. "I am a Sikh". "I am a Hindu". "I am a Muslim". So from the time a child is born. Their religion is fixed in the world. Our Guru's message was spiritual and not a religious one. The Guru's cared about people all equally regardless of their religion, caste or any other thing. So here in the very first place we have slipped down a very slippery slope. A piece of stone lying on a ground doesn't have a religion. A dog walking on the street doesn't have a religion. Yet that instance of God exists in all creation , all equally. He himself is the Creator and He himself the creation. He is pervading everywhere and everything is made up of him. Just as the basic building blocks of matter is proton, neutrons and electrons .. in the same way He is the building block of all Creation. At one point you have religion with all the superficialities , superstitions, and at another point you have Science that is time and again bringing in new discoveries and new knowledge about the Universe. At one point we see the images of Hubble Telescope, which shows galaxies beyond galaxies at unimaginable distances and points and places in the Universe from where the first ray of light would take billions of years to reach Earth. It makes us realize the timeless and infinite span of the Universe. The planet Earth is infinitely smaller than the grand size of the Universe in which it lies in. So at one point we have these amazing discoveries that is truly showing us our place in the UNIVERSE and how insignificant and how small we are and how we are all one and Yet we have people still fighting in the name of religion 2015. Sikhs in Punjab fighting, arguing with kirpans, beating others for not following rehat, getting all aggressive, over all politics, removing turbans and not just Sikhs. Our minds are not at peace and we are like MAD men and women. We need to forget everything, from our skin colors to our religions and our superficial cultures and learn to be together and feel the oneness that is the real source of everything. Even if there was all peace on Earth or all war on Earth, it would not make a bit difference in the grand cosmic arena that we live in. We fail to look at how insignificant our position is in the Universe and instead of truly contemplating on the real philosophical message of Guru ... we find ourselves in a whole different world of chaos, arguments, fights. Our minds have failed to transcend the mundane and see beyond ourselves.
  10. First of all, we (as Sikhs) must respect Vedas. They do have plenty of gyan (knowledge) in them and we can learn a lot from them. Some of the major differences between Gurbani and Ved bani are as follows: Quote (Ragmala jee) Regarding the Vedas , Baba Ishar Singh Ji said they are not false, they tell about the disease but do not provide the medicine. The medicine for Ego/ Haumai is only present in Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. Unquote Quote (Ragmala jee) Pandit Narayan Singh ji would listen to katha of both vedas & SGGS. When listening to katha of vedas, he would sit at the same level as the kathavachak, When listening to Katha of Guru Granth Sahib , he would sit lower. People asked him how come ? This incident was narrated by Baba Ishar Singh Ji in his Bachans. "...they tell about the disease but do not provide the medicine. The medicine for Ego/ Haumai is only present in Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. " Unquote Furthermore: 1. Vedas don't talk about Prema Bhagtee (devotion based on love) ਭਾਉ ਨ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੈ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਚਾਰਿ ਬੇਦਿ ਸਿੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਪੜ੍ਹਿ ਪੇਖੈ। Bhaau N Brahamai Likhiaa Chaari Bayd Sinmriti Parhhi Paykhai. भाउ न ब्रहमै लिखिआ चारि बेद सिंम्रिति पड़्हि पेखै । Having gone through the Vedas and simritis one finds that Brhama also has nowhere written about the Sentiment of love. 3 ਵਾਰਾਂ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ : ਵਾਰ ੧ ਪਉੜੀ ੨੫ ਪੰ. ੩ [1] [1] - http://searchgurbani.com/bhai_gurdas_vaaran/vaar/1/pauri/25 2. Vedas (most of it) do not talk about the fourth state of mind (Turiya pad), while Gurbani is written from the perspective of Turiya pad. ਚਾਰੇ ਬੇਦ ਕਥਹਿ ਆਕਾਰੁ ॥ The four Vedas speak only of the visible forms. ਤੀਨਿ ਅਵਸਥਾ ਕਹਹਿ ਵਖਿਆਨੁ ॥ They describe and explain the three states of mind, ਤੁਰੀਆਵਸਥਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਤੇ ਹਰਿ ਜਾਨੁ ॥੧॥ but the fourth state, union with the Lord, is known only through the True Guru. ||1|| ਵੇਦੁ ਪੁਕਾਰੈ ਤ੍ਰਿਬਿਧਿ ਮਾਇਆ ॥ The Vedas proclaim that Maya is of three qualities.

  11. On 8th March, world celebrates women's day. Sikh faith was among the first major world religions to imply that women were equals to men. Guru Nanak proclaimed the equality of men and women and all Guru Sahiban allowed women to take full part in all the activities of Sikh worship and practice.

  12. http://www.firstpost.com/india/ghar-wapsi-punjab-rss-returns-christians-sikhism-raises-akali-ire-2001091.html Ghar wapsi in Punjab? RSS converts Christians to Sikhism, raises Akali ire by FP Staff Dec 22, 2014 10:53 IST #christians #didyouknow #ghar wapsi #Hindu #Hinduism #SAD #Sikh #Sikhism #WhatNext 16 Comments 140 522 0 Email Print this Article Even as 'Ghar Wapsi', the Hindu right's agenda to get back Christians and Muslims into the fold of their 'original religion, gains momentum, it seems the Hindu groups have not restricted this 'programme' to just Hinduism and have extended it to Sikhism too. According to an Indian Express report, RSS and other affiliated groups in Punjab, claimed to have converted over 8,000 Christians back to 'Sikhism' in the "last three years, some 3,500 of them over the last one year." "Hoshiarpur district has seen the most ‘ghar wapsis’, followed by Amritsar and Batala", adds the IE report. The report points out that RSS has also found support from "gurdwaras and some members of the SAD-dominated Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC)." RSS leader Ram Gopa,l who heads the organisation’s Dharm Jagran unit, justified their programme and claimed that in some villages "the entire population had converted" to Christianity and that this was a threat to Sikhism. One SGPC member Kiranjot Kaur, who has helped with these re-conversions agreed with Gopal's views and pointed out that Christianity was a serious threat to Sikhism. It seems RSS has also made sure that lower castes,who re-convert to Hinduism, are not discriminated against and thus lured by Christianity all over again. Leaders of the outfit in the state claimed that they are training some lower castes to become priests, a privilege reserved for Brahmins. One widow, Kinder Kaur, who reconverted told the paper, “We converted (to Christianity) because we were told that my husband would be cured of his illness. He died in 2011. Three months ago, the RSS motivated us to become Sikhs again. I have also changed the names of my children from Thomas and Rebecca to Sumeet and Kuljit.” Representational image. AFP. But this re-conversion tactic has not gone down well with Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), which is an ally of the BJP, points out the report, as the party "sees Dalit Christians as a vote bank." The report points out that even Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal assured Christians that they would not allow “forcible conversions” in the city. It should be noted that where RSS is concerned, its tendency to put Sikhism within the fold of Hinduism has meant that it is not viewed with great liking by 'orthodox Sikhs.' Of course where conversion is concerned, Punjab is not the only state where RSS and it's fringe-groups have claimed success. Most recently reports showed that VHP had converted over 200 Christians in Gujarat in a mass ceremony. A PTI report showed that the rituals were held at Aranai village in Valsad district of BJP-ruled Gujarat and that a 'Maha Yagnya' (ritual of the sacred fire) was organised for "purification" of the tribals before taking them back in Hindu-fold. Each of them was also given a copy of Bhagwad Gita. VHP insisted that the re-conversion was "voluntary" and not by force. "As part of the ongoing 'Ghar Vapsi' programme, VHP today re-converted 225 people from Christian community and took them back into Hindu religion," said Valsad district VHP chief Natu Patel. In Kerala it was reported that 35 people had converted to Hinduism, forcing the state to call a probe into the incident. The conversion reportedly took place pn Sunday morning in Alappuzha and Kollam districts. In Alappuzha, members of eight Christian families - a total of 30 people - reportedly embraced Hinduism at a temple function organised by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). In Kollam, there were five people who reportedly became Hindus. The VHP, meanwhile, said all those who became Hindus on Sunday decided to convert on their own, and all the organisation did was to prepare the stage for it. Reports said another 300 people in Alappuzha have expressed their desire to embrace Hinduism, and the conversion ceremony was likely to take place on Christmas day. While the BJP has said that it does not support "forced religious conversion", the recent spate of reports on these so-called 'ghar wapsi' ceremonies are a worrying sign where religious freedom is concerned in the country.
  13. Hello Everyone, mostly sikh people get problems at airports while security checking which i described under given link kindly read this link and give your views ; http://www.bubblews.com/news/6194555-problems-for-sikhs-at-airports
  14. " After having studied the scriptures, in many respects I have discarded the Vedas, Shastras, Smiritis, all Sutras, Tantras and Puranas, knowing them to be polluted and corrupted by many impurities. I have found that only the Holy Guru Granth Sahib is completely free of contamination and knowing it to be benevolent for the whole humanity, I have accepted this scripture and I accept myself to be the Sikh of Guru Nanak Dev, therefore I am a Sikh of the Guru." -Swami Ram Tirath Singh. "Just as the Guru Granth Sahib abated the social injustice, perpetuated against low castes through religious creeds, same way it raised voice in favor of basic rights of the womankind. Here the husband is not said to be the God and the woman the slave or purchased sheep or goat, but (she) has been accepted an equal partner in all (socio-familial) matters. Lopsided dicta of Hindu simirties that vilified women and compelled them to live like captives, was implicitly contravened through Gurus’ Words. Guru Nanak Dev Ji saying that when the whole mankind takes birth from the woman and there is need for woman to perpetuate the life cycle asked, then why the woman is vilified? In the Adi Granth there is no credo regarding barbaric worship neither any importance for ritual feast (to holy quakes) or sacrifices. Similarly no regard is accorded to Vaishnava or goddess worship because in the puranas it is said that they both (Hindu Goddess and Vishnu, one of Hindu god trinity) relish barbarous intakes i.e. meat, alcohol, marijuana, hemp, tobacco, hashish, cannabis etc. In the end I want to mention Guru Granth Sahib’s supremacy from the standpoint that this preeminent Granth does not profess any demigod or goddess to be the real God just as the (Hindu) puranas have done. Each purana’s author has made a God out of his conceptual demigod." -Swami Ram Tirath Singh. 'I was born in the state of Bengal. A yogi used to visit our town occasionally. His name was Swami Brahma Nand Ji. He led the life of a mystic. He possessed the power of materializing whatever he promised through his word. I am now one hundred and thirty four years old. There are very few yogis of his (Brahma Nand's) calibre in India. My father had immense faith in Swami Ji. One day he arrived at our door and started shouting loudly, asking for the return of what belonged to him. He had come very rarely in this part of the town, prior to this visit. The whole family felt astonished at his sudden arrival. His words were more astonishing than his arrival. My father failed to guess his demand, despite his best effort to know his Guru's mind. The Swami repeated his demand twice again. Kneeling on his knees, my father beseeched Swami Ji to disclose his demand. Swami Ji entered our house, and placing his hand on my shoulder, demanded that I did not deserve to stay at home. I must be handed over to him! Although we were four brothers, it was not easy for any parent to part with their son. It was not easy to refuse Swami Ji's demand either. Every member of the family looked at each other dumbfounded. Swami Ji repeated his demand and left for his hermitage. My parents paid a visit to Swami Ji's place in the evening. What transpired between him and my parents was not conveyed to me. But the next morning, I was handed over to Swami Ji. After staying in our town for six months, Swami Ji left that place taking me along with him. He was an erudite scholar of Sanskrit and possessed powers of materializing and providing things with his words. He instructed me in all yogic asnas and imaprted all kinds of knowledge associated with these asnas. He made every opportunity available to me to interact with and receive knowledge from many other yogis.We reached Punjab after pilgrimage through the states of Madras, Bihar, orissa, Bombay and the cities of Kanpur, Agra and Prayagraj at Allahbad. Here we came across a saint of the Udasi sect. We kept on interacting and exchanging views with this saintly person. His name was Swami Satyanand. He narrated the Sikh philosophy and Sikh tradition in such an impressive manner that Swami Brahma Nand was mesmerized. After a visit to Darbar Sahib Harmandir, he became a permanent devotee of the Sikh Gurus and their ideology. After spending some time in Punjab, we returned to Haridwar. One day Swami Brahma Nand was sitting calm and quiet. Suddenly he started sobbing. I asked him the reason for his tears. He answered that he had wasted his life in meaningless activities of yogic asnas whereas the essence of divinity lay in the Sikh Guru's philosophy and the Sikh way of life. He would have to be born once again in a Sikh family for deliverance. With these words, he shed his mortal frame. Now, I, his disciple also meditate on the sacred name of Waheguru. I practised yogic asnas under the guidance of accomplished yogis for many years at a stretch. The amount of peace and bliss that I have experienced through Naam Simran, I have never experienced earlier through any other practise. Guru's path of Naam Simran, is the perfect path. It is difficult to express the greatness of the Guru's word. Teachings of Guru Nanak and Guru Gobind Singh are the elixir of life. There is no other scripture more beneficial than Gurbani or Guru Granth Sahib. It is my bounden duty to spread this message of my Guru which he gave me in my last moments. It is a fact that whatever can be achieved through the effortless spontaneous practice of Naam Simran cannot be achieved through the strenuous exercises of other practises. It is my felt-experience and an experience about which there is no controversy.' -Swami Nitya Nand. Neel Garhi (Rishikesh). This one I got from 'History of Sikh Gurus Retold.' The 'Nirmala' school at first was heavily constrained to Khalsa dominated spheres of the sub-continental landscape. Despite their universal educationality in different spiritual academics they were not heavy proselytizers in the early days of the Sikh empire. It was only after the failure of Abdali's Indian campaigns, and the subsequent peace which followed which saw them start an extensive movement to spread the Khalsa ethos in amongst the diverse, and often contradictory, Hindu tradition. They traveled to many pilgrimage sites such as Haridwar to debate with and present their unique ethos. Given special patronage by the Khalsa chiefs they were heavily protected and emboldened to refute and debate with their erstwhile critics, as such their liberating of the lower-castes and patronage soon earned them the wrath of many a Hindu sect. The 'Sanyasis' and the 'Vairaagis', two erstwhile sects of the Hindu faith, soon gave vent to their long-held bitterness against the 'Nirmalas.' Since time immemorial, and with the rise of the Maratha entity, they had been receiving extensive amounts of wealth and gifts which had emboldened them in their nefarious activities. The 'Nirmalas' were an antithesis to this status quo and as such earned their wrath. Subsequently this perspective, adopted by anti-'Nirmala' forces, soon lead to massive arguments and attacks on both parties. In 1796 A.D. a conjoint venture between both 'Nirmalas' and 'Udasis' had resulted in members of both orders creating a delegation, which pitched base at the Kumbh festival at Haridwar. The delegation had commenced a perpetual recitation of the sacred Sikh canon, the Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Both the Maratha and the British administration had given the 'Naga' sect of Hindu recluses charge over the festival, subsequently the 'Nagas' demanded a fee of eight Annas to One rupee for the entry of every Hindu participant and devotee. The 'Nirmalas' refused to pay this fee as per the dictum, that the Khalsa is the third way and unique from predecessor panths. Hinduism included. This combined with 'Naga' greed catalyzed in the latter burning the delegation's flag and forcing them to stop the recitation of Guru Granth Sahib. The 'Nagas' did not realize at the time that their act would be answered with lightning swiftness. They indulged in even more brutality by murdering a select number of 'Udasis.' Report of this fanatical violence soon reached the courts of Rai Singh of Buria, Karam Singh of Shahbad, Dasundha Singh of Sadhora, Baghel Singh of Malaud, Jodh Singh of Kalsia and Rup Singhof Ropar. All these cheifs soon rushed to Haridwar and cremated the murdered Udasis. They then commenced to avenge this affront. After the festival ended and the 'Nagas' were accounting their gains they attacked them and with a brutal alacrity slaughtered anyone who tried saving them. This intensified bloodbath soon earned them a fearsome reputation and as a result the 'Nirmalas' and'Udasis' were subsequently left well alone. The second incident sparked off in 1807 A.D. This time it due to differing religious perspectives. The 'Nirmala' mission had impacted the Hindu psyche on such a broad spectrum, that they were granted entry into any Hindu shrine without any caste or creed prejudice. On one such occasion the Brahminical elite created a controversy over the 'Nirmala' access to the 'Kushvrat Sarovar' near Nasik in Maharashtra. They did not accept the 'Nirmala' emphasis on anti-casteism, and their traditional custom consisting of a white turban and garments with flowing beards. Since time immemorial the said location had been a Brahminical head quarter and placed a strict emphasis on bare-headedness and non-stitched clothes. A heated argument broke out between both sides until ultimately the Brahmins admitted the futility of their religious logic in front of the Khalsa's universal spirituality. It was after this event that the 'Nirmalas' made it a point of interest to attend each and every Hindu pilgrimage site and festival. Kavi Kunvraish's ode to the Khalsa Gurus: “In the year 1695-96 AD, I completed this book (which is an adaptation in the Braj Basha language of the Drona Parav section of the Mahabharata). In the lineage of the mighty Bedis emerged the incomparable Guru Nanak who is the complete manifestation of God. Nanak made a follower from the Trehan lineage and gave him an auspicious name -Angad. Twenty four hours a day Angad devoutly meditated on the lotus feet of God. For the advancement of world Angad gave Guruship to Amardas,- a noble from the Bhalla lineage. Amardas gave all his powers, knowledge and Guruship to Ramdas – the King of the Sodhi lineage. Arjan is the name of a warrior, but this Arjan is the king of the world! Arjan, who earned great fame in this world, is the son of Ramdas. The generous king Har Gobind, who killed a horde of enemies, is the son of Arjan. When Gurdita left the expansion of this illusionary world, his son Har Rai was given the responsibility of Guruship. Har Rai’s son is Guru Harkrishan. When he left this world he gave a clue to identify the next guru. Tegh Bahadur was the most eligible to become Guru. God himself had given the nectar of devotion to him. Tegh Bahadur has come to give comforts to the people and finish the miseries and anxieties of the masses. The king Guru Gobind is the son of Tegh Bahadur. It is only because of Guru Gobind that the entire community of poets is alive and thriving in this world. On the banks of the river Satluj is the pious city of Anandpur. There, is the abode of the graceful king Guru Gobind. In the land between the river Ganga and Yamuna is a village named Bari. There, the poet Kunvraish lives …….”

  16. In this tomb lies the body of the man that poisoned relations between communities perhaps forever. There lies the body of the man that committed so much crimes during his day that its beyond comprehension. The tomb lies in the deep south where Aurangzeb spent the last 30 years of his life fighting the marathas. Based on his last days Aurangzeb was extremely repentent of the crimes he committed. Only God knows... The last words of Aurangzeb, addressed to his sons from death-bed, echo mournfully : “I came a stranger to this world and a stranger I depart. I know nothing of myself – what I am and what I was destined for. “My back is bent with weakness and my feet have lost the power of motion. The breath which rose is gone and has not left behind even a ray of hope. “The agonies of death come upon me fast. My vessel is launched upon the waves ! “
