Sanatan/ Puratan/ Sikh/ Hindu?


Recommended Posts

Kamalroop Singh makes some good points: (taken from his blog)

Snatan or Puratan, Hindu or Sikh....are you confused?

In the latest book by Parmjit Singh Grewal and Nidar Singh Nihang (Surjit Singh Bains), the authors write:

"NIDAR SINGH NIHANG is the ninth gurdev(teacher) of the Baba Darbara Singh Shastar Vidya Akhara". Published 2008.

While on the other hand on the website, they state:

"Akali Nihang Baba Darbara Singh Sanatan Sikh Shastar Vidiya Ranjit Akhara " Published 2004.


Please compare with this, published in 2008:

Akali Nihang Baba Darbara Singh Sanatan Suraj Bansia Shastar Vidiya Shiv Akhara.

If we compare on archive.org the former shastarvidiya.org website, and the present website. There is a large difference in content, terminology, and definitions. Why has there been this inconsistency over the years?

Or is this a form of incrementalism to vainly attempt to define the Buddha Dal practices as Hindu? Why is there a redefinition? From Sikh to Snatan Sikh in the last website, to Hindu-Sikh, and the Shiva Akhara in the latest websites?

The word Puratan, or Pracheen used by Nihang Shahid Akali Rattan Singh Bhangu, would be the correct word for tradition. Not Snatan:

See Sanatan (Traditional) Sikhi.

It's very good peace of article, shows some serious flaws in nihang niddar singh mindset of linking Advait Gurmat Sidhant with Shiv/Vishnu Devta's- sanatan. I don't if many know this, snatan mat was started by bhrama son's. His second son name was - snatan. The snatan mat itself known today is infuenced with bhrama's son- snatan what he beleived in.

It's easier to administer poison in small doses than it is all at once.

If the website had used their oxymoronic hyphenation Hindu-Sikh at the beginning then there would have been very few takers for their drivel so they came up with a seemingly neutral term Sanatan and added Sikh to it and used it in their fairy tales of hidden knowledge, secret texts and that supreme catch all which can be used when no reference is available Baba blah blah of blah blah samparda says this!

They are now confident that the ones they have hoodwinked into their cult are now so far removed from the Sikh mainstream that they will never be able to leave them and rejoin it. Their game with most Sikh youth is now up so there is no need for them to maintain any pretence in the hope of new recruits.
