Kutchee Bani?

Recommended Posts

I was told in Bhai Gurdas Jee's Vaars there is a mention of a King Harichand and his Queen Tara, she used to go to Satsang, and do Bhagti, before the times of the Guru's. She used to go in the middle of the night as her husband was not religious and did not allow her to go. One night she went there and her husband followed her after being awoken, she fled when she saw him there and left her shoe there.

The King saw her shoe and searched for her amongst the people meditating, he could not find her as she sneaked out as soon as she saw him there. He resolved to prove her guilty and punish her. Meanwhile Tara Raani realised her shoe was missing and knew she would be found out and started praying to God. When the King asked her to bring her shoes to show him, she was trembling. When she went to fetch them, she saw that the complete pair was there! She realised the other shoe had miraculously appeared and this saved her from her husband (King) wrath and anger.

The King heard of the miracle and started to go to Satsang and thus changed his life. This is an actual Sakhi mentioned in Bhai Gurdas Jee's Vaars, reference and excerpt below.

King HariChand had a queen with beautiful eyes, Tara, who had made his home the abode of comforts.

At night she would go to the place where in the form of holy congregation, would recite the holy hymns.

After she had left, the King awoke in the middle of the night and realised she had gone.

He could not find the Queen anywhere and his heart filled with astonishment

The following night he followed the young queen.

The queen reached the holy congregation and the King lifted one of her sandals from there (so that he could prove the infidelity of the queen).

When about to go, the queen concentrated upon the holy congregation and the one sandal became a pair.

The king upheld this feat and realized that there her matching sandal was a miracle.

I am sacrifice unto the holy congregation.

Now, many people on internet forums have said Sants only sing Kutchee Bani (anything which is not written by the Guru's). I have five points by which I can challenge them.

1. The Bhagats have also contributed towards Bani, if a Bhagat of Vaheguru today was to write a poem similar and echoing all the beliefs of Gurmat, would you deem those words 'Kutchee Bani'? Meaning fake?

2. The word Bhai Sahib (Gurdas Jee) uses to describe what that Queen went to listen to is GURBANI! This is before the Guru's started Sikhism, yet he says she went to listen to GURBANI! So if Gurbani is anything which praises the Guru's or Akaal Purukh (as proved in this post and by Bhai Sahib's reference), who can dare to call the dharnas sung by accomplished Mahapurush like Sant Baba Nand Singh Jee, Baba Isher Singh Ji etc wrong? This Vaar is by Bhai Gurdas Ji, who has written Bani approved by the PANTH! So why has he used the word Gurbani for what was sung in the congregation BEFORE the Guru’s were on earth!? THINK!

This Vaar is number 10, pauree 6, link -


3. Another example from Bhai Gurdas Jee’s Vaars, which is considered BANI by the PANTH! He writes in the Vaar about the Sain Barber. Link and excerpt below.

Notice the following line! aaeae sa(n)th paraahunae keerathan hoaa rain sabaaee|| ß Bhai Sahib says, in the company of the SANTS, KEERTAN was performed, was this KEERTAN of Kutchee Bani? Would he have said this was KEERTAN if it was Kutchee Bani? He also says in the company of SANTS.

Secondly, Bhai Sahib mentioned that Sain became a SIKH! So Sikhs existed before the time Guru Nanak, well Sikhs as defined by Bhai Sahib, who is accepted by the PANTH!

4. The Panthic Ardas up to ‘Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Simariye Ghar Nau Nidh Aave Dhaye’ is Bani, the rest is not! Is the rest not Kutchee Bani? Why do we allow people to do the Ardas in the Gurudwara’s as this is not Bani! Well not half of it anyway.

5. Lastly, the Dhadhis sing anything but Gurbani, they sang in the Sangat during our Guru’s times, and they still do, this is Kutchee Bani they are singing as it is not out of Guru Granth Sahib Jee, so why not ban them before attacking the Bhagats of Guru Sahib?!

I implore the sangat to think and use their god given rationale to read the Vaars and make up their own minds about this issue. People are jealous when others are doing parchaar and they don’t even realise it. They are upset they weren’t able to convince even one person to take Amrit whereas the Sants of Akaal Purukh only have to say one word and people can be ready to follow their Guru.

I wrote this post because I felt I had to, in response to the rubbish being spewed out about Sants today, I will certainly not be part of this as I believe Mahapurush have kamai, and I don’t want to become a Nindhak and part of the ‘in crowd’

Ps. I request admin to put this up as I have put a lot of effort into it and may Guru Ji bless us all with gyaan and the ability to see right from wrong!

Also, could you please convert the text into Gurmukhi in those two excerpts? I dont know how to do that, thankyou.
