Haal Fakira Da Kehna????????????


Recommended Posts

Actually there are 3 different versions of this tuk in 3 different versions of Dasam Granths. All 3 are approved and we accept the Mureedan da as Gurbani as well. It is just too bad you spineless people can't see beyond your hatred. Maybe one day :) Hope it makes you feel better about yourselves by ignoring knowledge and insulting other faiths. "Let's just form our own uninformed and neanderthall like opinions and ignore the fact that there are people with actual knowledge who maybe able to answer the differences if we only know how to ask like civilized humanbeings." N30, how did that saying go again about giving a hat to a monkey?

not only that but they have paraphrased gurbani, admin cut

If one was to assess the whole naamdhari issue it becomes clear, that its one big mistake.

They go making their claim to fame from suraj parkash, if they can provide one legitimate claim from Gurbani of Dasam Patshah and Aadh Sri Satguru Granth Sahib Ji which substantiates and validates their existence then ill kiss the feet of jagjit singh.

It is not me that has anything to say. It is you, who like the rest of your friends, have no requirement or interest in knowledge but all you want to do is be part of an insult-fest. Which is obviously what this is all about.

In all seriousness why would a topic like this be started in the form of an insult rather than a question if it isn't just to get more people to get together and take part in the bashing? If I am not mistaken this type of behaviour is mentioned in Gurbani as 'Thuggi'.

Even the question you are now raising, you (should) know very well that it has no other meaning or use other than to create a scene and all you hope for is ohers would chime in and help you in the Namdhari-bashing party, by which you will feel better about your own version of Sikhi. All I can say is "Wah! What great faith and security you have in your faith!"

The point is you are raising these futile questions knowing full well that EVERY Sikh jatha and organization looks at and take meanings differently from the Gurbani of the Granth Sahibs. AKJ for their requirement of keski & sometimes rejection of Raagmala, Prof. Darshan Singh for their glorification of Adi Granth and condemnation of Dasam Granth, Budda Dal Nihangs for eating meat, some Taruna Dal Nihangs for NOT eating meat, Nirmalas for the inclusion of Hindu ideology in Sikhism, Singh Sabha for the exclusion of Hindu ideology from Sikhism & shortening Rehras Sahib.

I am certain you are not unaware of the above mentioned dilemmas in the Sikh Panth, and yet you are asking this kind of question. Give me a break! Like I said if you are serious my pm is open otherwise have fun, its your life you're wasting.

Lets not act like low level primates guys, Fateh Singh is born into his faith and has full belief in it, as we do in ours. I mentioned before, we should take a civilised and courteous approach when fact finding - no one is going to change anyones mind or extract info through thuggery or insults.

He obviously has some interest in learning and sharing otherwise he wouldn't be here, and we are lucky to have an educated member of the Namdhari community here, so lets take full advantage of it - in a contstructive and postive way.

Fateh Singh, you haven't replied to my last PM.

The issue here is fatehsinghs pm services !! not faith not practice,

It is always worth learning before insulting.

Guru Nanak could have gone around smacking up people and destroying their shrines, instead he took the approach to observe the practice of others and then to bring the ras of naam into the lives of those people.

He did not destroy mecca, simply spun it around when asked to move his feet, he did not drown the hindus at the ganges, simply threw water towards the punjab and explained his reasoning, neither did he eat the cannibal, or lay the smackdown on kaljug when he came to do darshan of Satguru Nanak.

In the same way we should aim to model ourselves on that approach instead of turning towards aggression and insults.

But would be interesting to discuss whats the difference (significance) in the use of the word maridan and fakira in this shabad.

Banda Dynamic Walia, there are 3 variations of this tuk: Haal Fakira/Mureeda/Gareeba Da Kehna. All 3 are Gurbani (written by Guru Gobind Singh). Namdharis prefer to use 'Fakira' because it is the lowest of all 3 in a worldly sense but also the highest in spiritual sense. Many beautiful variations like these existed in the old Birs. A lot has been lost in the effort to 'conform and control'.

Similarly there was also a Dasam Granth Sahib whose Chandi Di Vaar was written in the table of contents as 'Vaar Durga Ki' and also had no 'Waheguruji Ki Fateh' but started out straight "Ik Oangkar Sri Bhagautiji Sahai". I forgot the name of the Gurdwara where it was kept. I will try to find out and then perhaps someone can confirm if it is still preserved or replaced by a 'replica' currently.

Perhaps because a Faqir is at a much lower political level than a Badshah? Baba usually mean father or grand father, so it probably didn't bother Bhai Gurdas too much to call Guru Nanak his father. It is not comparable to the level of humility of a Patishah calling himself a Faqir. Again I am merely agreeing that it is possible that the scribes wrote the words differently like you suggested. I do not personally know or believe for a fact that it is in fact what Bhai Mani Singh did. Just presenting both sides of the possibilities. For us all 3 are Gurbani and that is what I believe in. Whether Bhai Mani Singh edited a particular Bir when he was preparing it or not makes no difference. Always good to be mindful of the history/possibility though.

If I remember correctly in Gurblias Patshahi 10 the word fakir is used in place mureed. So the issue is clearly a long standing one and there are historical references for both term. A discussion of sources and validity would certain be interestinig and beneficial to all, particuarly if the discussion was void of attacks and insults against the faith of others.

I think the issue is more of sect or cult formation than variations of Gurbani. If the mainstream take one stance then the sect has to take another solely to create a number of differences that can then be used to distinguish between 'us' and 'them'

A variation of Gurbani is an oxymoron. If differences exist then they are the result of scribes or people with a vested interest in distorting Gurbani.

Jaisi mai aavai Khasam ki Bani taisra kari gian vai Lalo (Tilang M1)

So having variations of a particular verse is nonsense. If the namdhari leader is a Guru and has the light of Guru Nanak then surely he would know what the correct word is and propagate it.

Ofcourse. There are claims that Bhai Mani Singh was the one who changed Fakira to Mureeda da because he could not call Guru Gobind Singh a Faqir.

Highly unlikely given the example of Ram Rai. Also it doesn't make sense that if Bhai Mani Singh did not want to refer to Guru Gobind Singh as Faqir then how about the gareeban example, was Bhai Mani Singh (or another Sikh) ok with referring to the Guru as Gareeban?
