thats not separate relegion.. but it exist within sikhism..

check out www.sarbloh.info ..

If truth is soo hard to digest then thats up to you veer.

:D

You can ignore truth all your life but truth remains same.

Sri baba chand was quite enlightned himself...Yes off course...there might be few cases where he didnt follow guroo ji hakum but that was in early childhood.. he became quite enlightned later on.

This proves udhasis are sikhs

in sikhi we need to aquire knowledge. With my newly aquired knowledge i wish to give a bit of info. It not much to do with Udasis, Sorry for the side tract.

"To seek means to acquire knowledge. The second part of spiritual development is Gian Khand. The individual, who in its true form is Atma (particle of Parmatma, the highest God) moves towards Va-eh Guru by feeding on Gian (knowledge)."

What do you think of this gabroo.

just to note out, that extract was taken from sarbloh.info

What i am trying to say is that knowledge is and should be aquired. We must remain openminded and then decide on what i true or false. We shouldn't make rash descision. I hope that my veer can understand this.

As far as udasis are concerned, my knowledge is limited. But i am sure that there are bad apples in all sects. So not all udasis are true udasis.

I have never met an udasis, or every been intrigued to read about them. But i will do some reading on the topic and let you know my personal opinion.

fateh ji.

i've started to read about the udasis, i've not read much but found this extract.

It is a historical fact that all the Gurus loved and respected Baba Siri Chand ji. Guru Amar Das ji gave his eldest son, Baba Mohan ji to serve Baba Siri Chand ji. Guru Hargobind Sahib offered his son, Baba Gurditta, the father of Guru Harkrishan ji (7th Guru) to be Baba Siri Chand ji's devotee and successor. Baba Siri Chand ji gave the name "Amritsar" that is used today to the city that had been called Ramdaspur. And the place where Guru Arjan Dev ji waited daily for his meetings with Baba Siri Chand ji and his resting place are still marked by the historical sites of Thamb Sahib and Manji Sahib at the village of Barath. Babaji also gave water from his baoli (spring) for the Sarovar (sacred pool) at Tarn Taran.

When Guru Arjan Devji recited the first 16 astpadis (stanzas) of his Sukhmani Sahib (Hymns of Peace) for Baba Siri Chand ji, Babaji appreciated them so much that he said there should be more. Guru Arjan Devji then requested Baba Siri Chand to give the opening lines of the 17th astpadi. So Baba Siri Chand, following his father Guru Nanak Dev ji's example, recited "Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai bhi Sach, Nanak Josi bhi Sach..." True in the beginning, Eternally True, God is True now and will always be True This line appears as given by Babaji in Guru Granth Sahib ji and is recited as bani today.

On reading this extract i began to wonder. These are my trail of thoughts.

If we are to ask what is sikhism, do we look at the sikhs of today or look at their gurus. Im sure that most people will (want to) look at what the gurus did to find out about true sikhi.

Like wise, if we were to look at islam today, will we judge it by looking at the muslims of today.

And if we to look at hinduism, .... to diverse. :D

I answer gabroo question's in the same manner. I am not looking at what the udasis are of today, but more to the fact of who they were and what they should be, (i am in no position to tell people about the current day udasis as i still have little to none knowlegde regarding them and have not ever met a person who is an udasis :( .)

From the extract above, if the gurus can hand over their sons to an udasis, then i cannot see anything wrong with their Baba ji, as for he did help guru ji finish of sukhmani sahib.

fateh ji. I hope i have answered your question gabroo.

I thought I'd try to add a little more about the Udasis beyond what is provided on sarbloh.

In all the frescoes I have seen in Udasis Akharae, Baba Sri Chander is sat to the left or right of Guru Nanak Dev who is paramount. Udasis also commonly recite Baba Sri Chander ji's ode to Guru Nanak Dev.

One important point to bear in mind is that, when the Gurdwara Reform bill was passed, it provided a direct threat to all samprada deras/akharas/ashrams, with their individualistic practices. Instead, there was a shift to an imposed orthodoxy in philosophy and practice created by the SGPC along the lines of the Tat Khalsa ideology.

The Udasis had inherited a lot of land and ashrams from the maharajas. The SGPC were keen to get hold of the land and institutions. After court cases between Udasis and SGPC, it was decided that it was possible to have SGGS in the instution and not be a Gurdwara (and hence avoid having to be taken over by the SGPC), as long as Guru Granth Sahib wasn't the main focus of the building (can someone add more here?).

The immediate reaction to this was two fold. A number of sub-groups distanced themselves from Sikhi, and claimed they were hindu. Others maintained their Sikh identity.

Sulakhan Singh has produced good research on this area, and references modern texts written by Udasis that show this clash of identity in response to the changes of the 19/20th century. I'll try to get these latter on.

It's interesting to note that the bakshish groups (and from my experience those started by Sangat Sahib) are closer to Sikhi than those from the four Adi-udasis, but that could be crap as it's merely what I've seen! For example, the three key akharas in Amritsar; Akhara Sangalwara, Akhara Brahm Boota and Akhara Bala Nand are all Sangat Sahib and all are very close to Darbar sahib.

Equally the identity among grassroot Udasis seems to vary greatly. Last week I met an amritdhari Udasi mahant, who wore the 5 ks along with the peach bana. His sadhana was very much Udasi, his mindset was very much khalsa.

You will find Udasis in all corners of India. This is due to

there is some basic information at www.babasrichand.org

Don't disrespect Baba Sri Chand Ji Maharaj or the Udasi.Baba Sri Chand wasn't jealous of anyone or anything.

When he knew he wasn't to be the next Guru, he took the news very well.And don't believe the false story of Guru Nanak Dev Ji throwing a pot into a mudhole and testing to see who would get it.That's false propaganda :x

Baba Sri Chand loved and respected his beloved father.And Guru Nanak Dev Ji wasn't in any way against him or his way of life.There's too much falsehood out there about Sikhi :x

How come then SGPC has recognise them as Sikhs? How come the Anandpur resolution recognise them as Sikhs?

Regarding HIndustan.... I like SOuth Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh,BHutan, Nepal..) but I hate BJP RSS and VHP! :evil:

If there is to be a Khalistan then it should stretch from Lahore to Patna Sahib, from Anandpur Sahib to Hazur Sahib: why be satisfied with tiny polluted Panjab when we could get much much more! :D

Let Brahmin arrogance be humiliated!

Phaji in reference to what you have wrote, I have come across this story a number of time (people verbally telling the story), the one about the pot and you have mentioned that this did not take place.

I am intregued as to where you have got this information from as it contradicts a number of stories that I have heard. I am not stating that what you have said is incorrect or anything like that, I would just like to find out what really happened as there are 2 stories that are told.

lalleshevari,sshhh plz

look at ur beloved hindustani sites, they diss mahapurkhs all over the place

and all i'm doin is pointing out a fact that ur sites the only site that recognizes udasis as sikhs, CAUSE THEY AINT!

Gabroo Phaji, I am again intregued as to why you don't believe that Udhasis's are from Sikhi. Can you please provide some references which made you reach this conclusion.

Thank you :)

The story about the pot and the mudhole never happened.It's made up, by people who are anti-Udasi for some reason.There are people (Jathas) who have a problem with the existence of Udasi Panth. :roll:

I was told by an Amritdhari full Bana wearing Khalsa Ji that it is a totally FALSE story.Both Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Baba Sri Chand Ji loved and respected each other mutually.Since Baba Sri Chand wasn't going to marry, Guru Nanak Dev Ji told Baba Sri Chand to make sure Lakhmi Das Ji would get married and have a family.And he did make sure.

I believe the latest from Guru Nanak Dev's lineage is Baba Sarbjot Singh.If I'm wrong please correct me.

Before passing away, Guru Nanak Dev blessed Baba Sri Chand Ji.Baba Sri Chand was blessed by Guru Nanak Dev with great miraculous powers.During his very long life (some say 130 years, some 150!!) he was respected by all the Guru.

Did you know that Baba Sri Chand Ji composed a love filled poem to his Beloved Father?Here is Baba Sri Chand Ji's Aartaa to his father, Guru Nanak Dev:

"Let us sing the praises of Nanak, King of kings of both worlds

The whole world is His temple, congregations sing sweet songs in His praise

Millions of goddesses kindle holy lights in His honor

All the gods sing psalms of His praises

All wash His lotus feet

The Sun and moon illuminate Him with their radiance

He is garlanded with mountains of flowers

The True Master, the fountain of Light is merciful to the poor

The king of the winds fans Him while saints and sages meditate on His holiness

The whole universe vibrates with His celestial song

The bells ring out - Onkar

Continuously illuminating the heavens

He is one with God whose name is Truth

In Nanak saints find their support

Siri Chand, Nanak's son, declares Nanak is unattainable,

unfathomable, unshakeable and pure

Whoever sings Emperor Nanak's praises resides in heaven and achieves complete salvation

Oh kind master: give protection to those who seek your shelter.

Oh Nanak: You are the savior we are just your children" - Baba Sri Chand

Above taken from http://www.babasirichand.org/babasirichand/aarta.shtml

So there you see Baba Sri Chand Ji's love for his father.What praise!

Rooh khush hundee!It is said that he composed this poem after he merged with Vahiguru and saw the whole of the universal creation bow in reverence to Guru Nanak Sacche Patshah.So tell me, do you think such a Vahiguru-enlightened soul would have any jealousy or disrespect in him? :?:

Check out: http://www.babasirichand.org/babasirichand/

What's so shocking is what so called "Sikh" have made him out to be.SUCH A SHAME :(

You can hear Baba Sri Chand's Aarta to Guru Nanak Dev aswell as reading it in Panjabi and English.Sat Sri Akal.

Just one more thing; Did you know that both Sacche Patshah Guru Amar Das Ji and Guru Har Gobind Ji gave their eldest sons to Baba Sri Chand Ji?

Baba Mohan Ji was Guru Amar Das's eldest son, and Baba Gurditta Ji was Guru Har Gobind's eldest son.Why would they give their eldest son's away to someone who's falsely accused of jealousy??Think about it.

WJKK WJKF,

Thanks for the info Hari Phaji, I have come across most of that in bits and pieces before.

Phaji I get the impression you know a fair bit on this topic and so would like to ask if you know anything about Dera Baba Nanak that is in the village of Gurdaspur by the India - Pakistan boarder. The Baba Ji there at the moment are baba Balbir Singh Bedi Ji and they are currently doing sewa of looking after Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Chaula.

Just wondering if you have any info on this.

Just to restate that for Gabroo

Baba Gurditta (whom Baba Sri Chander gave his topi to as a sign of passing on leadership of Udasi samparda) was given to Baba Sri Chander by his father Guru Hargobind Sahib (nb - the topi still exists in Kiratpur)

Baba Gurditta was also the father of Guru Har Rai.

Baba Kirpal who fought along side Guru Gobind Singh ji and killed Hayat Khan with his club, as narrated in Bachitar Natak.

Did the Gurus reject the Udasis? Doesn't seem like it to me.

Dera Baba Nanak was an important centre for the Udasin along with Nanak Matta among others.

Many of the Matre written by prominent Udasin (Adi-Udasi and Bakhshish) pay homage to Guru Nanak. The frescoes that depict both Baba Sri Chand and Guru ji, always have Guru Nanak sat in the prominent position with Baba Sri Chander underneath.
