Wahiguru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahiguru Ji Ki Fateh

Das is writing this text on the behalf of all those human beings who hate racialism,which has taken the grab of Castism in hindusim and Sikhism too.This is even present in other Faiths.

thing to rember is that in India often preachers from Islam,christinaity,Budhism and leftism take dig at castism of hindus and often our Sikh schollor join the same hindu bashing bogy.Das hates this as hindu follows some Books and they totally oppose caste system.But due to adding of interpolated verses or misinterpetation of verses birth based or racial things have crept in.

Caste is infact something birth based.ie Casting or making in womb of the mother so it is same as Jati in Sanskrit often it is used for term birth. But in Sikhism,Frankly speaking all such stuff is ended.hindus are requested that instead of changing thier books of interpolated verses,you can simple use our books as it does not have any such verses.And interpetations of such verses of hindus books can have true meaning if hindus understand our holy book clearly by a Sikh schoolar.

Few tps for words formation in hindi etc.

In hindi due to its sanskrit mother we have many Sankrit words taken as it is(tatsam) like Rashtra(Nation),Other who have changed a bit(Tatbhav) like Kaam(work) from Karma,some are native(deshi) like Gorha(horse) from term Ghotrha(What is called in Dravdian tongue and taken into Sanskrit(Dravdian are a type of Race unlike Arya,Which means some other thing later explained(As per Arya Samamj or part of Sangh Parivar)So we do have words of foreign languages entering hindi/sanskrit ,they are termed Videshi best example in Sikhism will be word Sahib or lord from Arebic.

So in a same fashion words can be claasified in three catogoris

Rud or Roorh

they are basic in thier nature and are not the product of combination of two words.

like gu stands for Darkness

Ru stands for hurdle or to stop.

In the same manner we have combined words called yog or yogic which are made of combining two samller roorh words and meaning remains the verbal



Guru(here it means remover of Darkness)

or a funny one

Doh(bad) + Atma(soul) =Duratama(Bad Soul)Here r is added.

In cade of Yog rurh words ,when two basic words meet ,they give a word which has a particular meaning.



In the sense of one who is Guide of sprituality.

Look at the following words.

Pan(coin or money) + Dit(holder or covered) = Pandit

By Yogic words it is wealthy but in realty it is used for one who is wealthy in education.

Vi (a superlative term) + Pr(term to give a sense of head or again something supreme). = Vipra(Ampbransha or Tatbav is vip or bip).

It is used for super head,As in acient India,We had religous head always controling Kings,So Vipra was the head of the Religous department of state. It later became the mark of respect of small time prists being address.

Like in our hindi speaking area,Porohit or prist is often called Pandit Ji Maharaj or Wealthy by educated sir king. Often he is not that much educated.more often he is very very poor.

castes in other faiths

Islam and christianity say all men are from one couple Adem and eve(One verse of Saint kabir also mentions the word Baba(Father) Adem in Guru Granth Sahib JI)Same is the case with jew. This states that all human is from one family.yey either due to the pagen influence or ethno-regional reasons often there are conflicts in races/tribes/nationalites relted to same of the faiths mentioned before.Muslims or cristioans who are hindu by 'race' have broght in the decease of caste in them too.

same could be said for Sikhs. Das here is with the complete matterial provided by scriptures revered by hindus,which clearly cancell that approach,that caste pr race are by birth. There were in fact some divisions based on profession ,which some vested interset made 'by birth'.Like das's biological family is the family of Vaishyas may be saome vaishya in past coould have done some arrangement so let his coming generation lives with his wealth and trade so he might let caste be by birth then class based on profession. Such person could hve been Brahmin or Kshtriya as well.

There are only a few quotes from old scripture like Vedas,Manu Samrit,Gita and Mahabharata.

Whole universe is one family.

(Yajur Veda 32/8)

That(God),The all prevasive,Pervades all beings within and without.

Yajur Veda 32/8

Oh Arjuna

Superme being dwells in the hearts of all creatures.

Gita 18/61

Mahbharata(1.60.5) sataes that people from one Varna by deeds can be divied in four Varna.

Gita(4.13) talks divisions of 4 Varnas based on deeds or bent of mind.

Then by manu Samriti(10.65)

Shudra becomes Brahmin by his good conduct abd vice vers ,a Brahmin becomes Shudra by his misconduct.This applies to Kshtriya and Vaishyas as weel.

Mahbharat (Anu P. 143.5) Brahminhood is not by due to coming out of womb of Brahmin mother,Or by being child of Brahmin father.But of good conduct,Good habits and Vedic knowledge.A shudra having good conduct and practicing restraint can get Brahminhood.

(Mahabharat anu P. 143.51)

O Yudhistir! A man cannot be a Brahmin by family or Birth/caste.Even chandal with restrain and good conduct is a Brahmin.

Manu Samriti(1.88) tells Brahmin is one with duties like educting,performing religeous ceromonies etc.

(1.89) give Kshtriya doing protection of others subject,studying veds etc.

(1.90) Vaishyas are one trading,Animal rearing,Farming etc.

Yajur Veda(30.7) Talks of Shudra who live by labour intensive work.

then there is some verses from (Rig Veda 10.90.12 and Yajur Veda 31.11)

which say from head of Purush Brahmin came and by hand Kshtriyas and by thighs Vaishyas and feet Shudras.

They gave professional coming out of socity but here father is only one of four professional.Weather child is born of caeserian operation or normal delivery or by hogh forceps.Child is of mother.So similarly when God is termed as mine of four profession(Sarbloh Granth) we talk of one father of all.In Fact Das could not find it but in the same Sarbloh Granth even God has been termed as Varna or Jati himself.

Varn is compising three letters Va(With) Ra(in) Nha(here it is for move ing).so to move in one type by self will ie more used in profession so it is yog Rurh.

Ja (often talks of earth/place) Ti means (to do or to move) so it stands for birth.But often refers to a community based on birth. Next thing is here due to hinduism some nationalty or race by Birth But not in Sanatan Dharam.

Even Dhol Gwar Sod Pasu Nari,Yeh Sab Taran Ke Adhikari in Ram Chritatar manans can mean.

Cattle,Iletrate lower,Animal(like) female is worthy of beating.

were Gurus or Sikhs Khatris ? or did Guru married khatri wives?

Of ten people ask why all Sikh Gurus were Khatris or why did nine fo them Married.Das can say that first Master did married a lady as per thier parents wishes.While other succeding two master married befroe they were Sikh but remaing Six masters marred not the Khatri ladies but Sikh ladies.And When Gurugaddi was been given all Master were Sikh.Only at Vaishakhi 1699 it happened that it was tranfered to Five Sikhs representing Khalsa.

Then likewise first master was the one who did not wore Janeu as as per Manu Samriti he was never a Dwija or twice born(Manu Samriti 2.172).So he was EKAJ or sudra so his deciple lost Kharithood after becoming Sikh so same appled to latter three Gurus.If we read the concept of Brahman as per Gurbani then they were more near Brahmins.They were so by the mercy of Akal. So by deeds Gurus were having qualities of four Varnas.And that manu Samrit version also(2.172) does not talk of ritualism but of studies.but gurmat made it further to spritualism.

During the time of Gurus altogather since first Guru.It is said in the Bhai Gurdas's Var that Guru becmae Sikh and Sikh became Guru so the concept of Panth guru was there too.Charan Pahul as per Sau Sakhi is water derived from corner of the cloath wrapping Guru Granth Sahib JI.so this does proves that Sabad Guru was there.And Fifth Guru's taking wak from Adi Guru Darbar after its compilation proves the concept of Sabad Guru again.

Some people talk of Second Guru was Tehan(Jatt) and not Trehan(Khatri) but this could not be true as there was a mattrimonial relation with his family to a non Sikh family of Third Guru.May be if it is true then this means that castism was not brought in for mattrimonial relationship but how could non Sikh agree to it?May be part of the family was non Sikh but Third master were a hindu yet.

likewise saying Khatri as Kshtriya can be correct but they inter marry Aroras and they may be used as Arroras often call themselves as Khartri.Das does not know all the Gotras of wives of Gurus but Bahal are Arora or Khatri Das is not sure.But Arora Khatirs may have Gotras like Khunger,(Jatt equiivalent Khungra),Gorewara(Present day they like to write grover in jatts they are Grewal),Then Malik and Katriyas of Jaats of hariyana are in khatris also.Likewise Suri,Khattar,Kakker,Gakhars are tribes of Pathans as well in Khatries of Kukhrain brotherhoods or even outside them.KUmbhar is potter but there is a Gotra in Khatris.Kundras and Bhandaris could have Brahmin connections.So in anyway there are Jaats in Sonipat and North Delhi with gotra as Khatri.As per Vachitar Natak Gurus family can be traced back to Ramchnadra.But that could be some other message in it by Guru.And that talks of Bedis and Sodhis and not Bhallas or Trehans.

Amrit and tale of beheading.

So maybe Amrit 's story of beheading perhaps meant that Guru did not actually beheaded the various people and interchanged there heads but they do combine what it is said in Suraj Prakash and Pracheen Panth Prakash(Rattan Singh) or Var of Bhai Gurdas Ji,Uniting of Four Varna into one.This thing is unprecendented yet not opposong to Vedas or Vedanta.

The way Ba Tashe or what is called Patshe in Punjabis get desloved in water of Amrit so all Varnas or Jati are desoved in Panth Khalsa.Mishri a sweet of hindus was not used nor was Kheel(Shirni) whcih was of grave worship was used.Mishri is purely suger and Shrini is rice coated with suger.One tells of unicultural assetrtion not valid as per Gurmat.Others talk of duality of in and out.But Ba(with) Tashe(plate) talks of intergrating flour and wheat and setting them in plate so with plate(it is the term of urdu Farsi of the time of Guru) was the actual Mitha or sweetner added to Amrit(As wrttan in Suraj Prakash and Pracheen Panth Prakash).

Sau Sakhi and bhai Alam Singh.

There is a sakhi in Sau Sakhi (Mangal Prakash) that Guru did not liked the Brahmins who ate meat and went agaiost there norms.They asked why Alam Singh,with Brahmin ancestors is still allowed to eat meat inspite of being Sikh.Guru Said,My Sikh eats meat not Brahmin.So he was a Sikh and not of any caste.

Dalit,Jatt or brahmins.

So as Das proved that in hinduism there must not be caste then how does it come in Sikhism.not only this but often Jatts tend to say in 'Panth' that dalits are to be seperated how is it possible as often there could be same Gotra of Jatt and Dalit that is they could be same in upper node of family tree.

Often some Sikhs have vendeta towards Hindus,Who could be Dalit or Brahmin.That must not be there as in hindus or in any other faith we are not allowed to discriminate by birth or what we say caste.Say if Aurangzeeb or Gangu brahmin did not behave well with Gurus then Gurus did not become enimcal to Muslims or brahmins in general.

das want to say that there are some wrong elements in us who will try to press about pre Sikh gotras of Sikhs so that they must be attratected to thier hindu forefather.Is not it crazy that Amrit they say is old fashion and need of that circumstances while how can the Gotras older then Amrit are still relevent.

Some one told das that Guru did approved Caste but treated them equally.If this is so then that equality is more then sufficent to end caste which is based on equlity based on birth.This means eqality to take Amrit with same bowls as other Sikhs.Equlity to share food or sit togather in Langer or Eqality to marry o in any caste or to take any profession.So caste is based on sharing food,Inter marrying and profession by birth,And that all is elimnated.

There were warriers as well priests of Sikhs who were having kalal(Brwers),carpenter or skin tanner ancestors in hindu past.

Often people tend to bring there pagan rituals in Faith.and they take time

Reason for misquating vars of Bhai Gurdas JI.This is nothing else but an attempt of people who are Both Anti Hindu and Anti Sikh.They try to preach that Sikhism is a racial faith.They do a sin in the eye of God who made Bible and Kuran and as per them to whole human had one father(Adem) or have one caste .(in Sabad Sattar.. Salar Jake..By Sant Kabeer Ji Adem is called father in Adi guru Darbar Also).

So what Bhai Gurdas Ji were doing was not encouraging Gotras but were telling readers who could be hindu from same Gotra that see how people from there familes got bliss of Gurmat so they may too join gurmat.A Preacher of Christianity will give testomony or story of Indian convert in India not in Africa.Say to convert Bodo tribe to his faith example of Naga converted Christinaity will be of less use then with bodo convert.

One person from Kala Afghana side said that persons are not having there Gotras in that Vars but they are there villages.

So Das can only request to people of all Kala Afghana side to surrender that calim that say a person can be Jatt and Sikh at the same time.Let us say that we are only Sikh.

das was told by an Amritdhari Sikh that there is a need to keep the knowledge of Gotra.It helps to avoid the concentration of genetic disorder well within one family but by marrieing outside a family or caste that disorder is elminated but in Sikhism otherwise marrying within same Gotra is not disallowed.

Kala Afghana's Realted missioary also try to say to end caste,They must try to replace there Gotras with some other surname.Like Hazuris Sikhs in south India have names like Pyada,Swar or Topchi as there forefather Had profession as infantry ,Cavilary or artilary.They are the purest Sikhs left as they have no caste.At that time of Sikhism there were no castes,They are a recent phenmina when during Ranjeet Singh's empire many pagens came in Panth and brought there pagan rituals.

Ramgarhia and bhindrwale are not caste but names realted to places.But often by others they are mistaken to be castes.

Gangu Brahmin episode may not be seen as in caste as Gyani Gyan Singh who was having hindu ancsetors as daulat Jaat also took whole account of jaat going against Gurumat.Likewise Bhai Keasar Singh Ji from past of hindu chibber did not include Gangu not for his being Brahmin but perhaps his being away from Malwa region where this all does happen.

Varn cross

This is omething new which perhaps Sikhism did.In Ratan Singh Bhangu's world Tat Khalsa said to Banada,we are Four Varna and you are Vaishnu(ritualist vegi).

So this thing was never before in Hindus but not going against them either.Here unlikie Varn cross or Varn Sankar(Where say a prist(Brahmin) works like a trader(Vaishya) that means say teaches for wealth or treats for wealth or for Profit while his actual deed is to treat as his duty or Dhram without seeking any profit).

Gurus Talk and did realsie of Varn Sangathan(union of attributes of Professions or genes).A Sikh has four varns with in him her,Like Educated includeing sprituality better then Brahmin,Warrier better then Kshtriya,Trader or earner better then Vaishya and serving Mankind better then Sudra.Considering one self humlbe as Sudra.Sikh had all attribute in one human body.Sikh still have the same.

In Sau Sakhi Guru says he has three Sidki Sikh,Nomand Trader,Farmer and who has dwroned everthing (to Guru) as he took lobour doer equal to spritualy enlightened one even while not having time for that.

When some one says that at spritual level there is no caste but at social or economic level it is then this is a contradiction.Our five Kes or 4 Kurehats are there to tell that what we are in our inner sprituality thats what we are outside in practice.Sikhism is not the hypocrate faith which has differance in preaching and practise.No one can be pius Sikh when in spritual level he has to go for truth but at economic level he tells a lie.Or say when a patit says that inspite of not keeping hair he is Sikh from heart.Das can ask him that this is duality not liked by God.So be hear if we consider a lady as our mother but in actions we sleeep with her that is a duality.As we see God in all so we can not say that some one is Big or small even by his/her deeds leave aside birth as all things are by God.

We must Help Hindu,Muslims or Christians as they all have problems with caste,ethinicity or race respectively.As we as a Sikh are complimentary for all the true Faiths or Dharam.So instaed of proving that they are racial or Castist it is our duty to prove that they too like Gurmat are free from caste.And for that we will have to detoxify ourselves.

1st Das wants to put inputs from websites of Gursikhijeevan.com and sikhphilosophy.net.

Sat Sri Akal:

Guru Gobind Singh Ji, with his Sri Sahib in hand, shouted that he wanted the head of a Sikh. He never said Brahmin, Kshytria, Vaisya, Shudra or Achyut. He never said Nirmalae, Akali, Sewapanthi, Udasi, Hindu or Muslim. The invitation was open to all, and of all, five PEOPLE got up, gave their heads to Guru Sahib and become the first of the Khalsa Panth.

Here is an excerpt from the website http://www.allaboutsikhs.com:

The Persian historian Gulam-ul-din, the newswriter of that period, sent Emperor Aurangzeb a copy of the Guru's address to his Sikhs on the first of Baisakh, Sambat 1756 (1699 A.D.) which reads as follows:

"Let all embrace one creed and obliterate differences of religion. Let the four Hindu castes who have different rules for their guidance abandon them all, adopt the one form of adoration, and become brothers. Let no one deem himself superior to another. Let none pay heed to the Ganges, and other places of pilgrimage which are spoken of with reverence in the Shastras, or adore incarnations such as Rama, Krishna, Brahma, and Durga, but believe in Guru Nanak and the other Sikh Gurus. Let men of the four castes receive my baptism, eat out of one dish, and feel no disgust or contempt for one another."

There is no caste/race/gender/creed/etc. divisions in Sikhism. However, individuals are not perfect and sometimes cannot give up bad habits. That is not reflective of the ideals of Sikhism, but rather the inability to adhere to the Guru Sahib's Command.

Therefore, any organization that claims to be Panthic WILL support this position, or they would be defying the Guru's Command.

1 Oankar Satigur Prasad..Listen to (this) testomony and recite (the name) in mind with love.Ajamil was salvaged by saying ones.Valmiki had company of sadhu(truth practicisors).Without difficulty Dhrov got God..1..(i)Plead for the dust of the feet of your saints.do mercy give that it should be applyed on forehead..1..pause..Prosetetute/harlot got salvaged by saying parrot as God name Hari/narayan.God did salvation to king elephant on his remembering.Bipra sudama poverty was broken.O mind you too recite the name of God..2..Poacher,who attacked by arrow too was salvaged.By the edge of toe kubja was salvaged.Vidur was salvaged due to emotion of servitude.O my mind you to remember God..3..The respect of Prahlad was kept by self God.Modesty of Draupadi was kept while her dress was been snatched.Who so ever served God ultimately.Oh my mind serve God to be able to cross (the barrier of salvation)..4..Dhanna served with the mind of child.Meeting Guru proved the Trilochan.Guru enlightened the beni.Oh my mind you tooo be das..5..Jaidev removed ego(of brahmanism).Likewise(nai) sain was salvaged by service.Mind was unfallable,immoveable going all the places.Mind you will also be afloat/salvaged by getting refuge..6..To whom lord did mercy by self.They all were protected.The good quilty or bad quality of them no one did pondered.seeing in such manner mind went to serve..7..Kabir remebered one colouered(only existance of) God.Namdev had god living/staying with him forever.Unique/unadjectivable lord was remembered by Namdev.Guru of Nanak is in the form ofdivine keeper of senses(God ie Govind).


(Here Guru wanted to say that inspite of false caste based various Background there were many person who reached the state of Sant by Mercy of God.But in fact Tenth Master made various castes based Backgrung persons Sant Sipahi,Saint soldiers,To a hindu this thing will sound unique)

..Malar.. You do not forget me You do not forget me.You do not forget me God(absorbed in all,invokation)..1..pause..Temple holders have illusion/mammon(that I am unworhty to enter Temple) so they are enraged on me.Sudra,Sudra called me ,beaten me and made me leave oh lord Father what should I Do..1..If you give me salvation after Death no one will know that.These Brahmins/Pandits call me lower caste,This causes adversely on your respect..2..You who is kind ,Mercyfull and with unlimited long arms.You have turned the front end(entrance) of temple towards Namdev and turned its back towards Pandits.(1292)

(here to as Namdev Ji were proven as Son of God so he was better then false Brahmins by Mercy of God).

Malar Bani Bhagat Ravidas Ji Ki

1 onkar Satiguru Prasad..(to) people of towen my caste is famous as Chamar.Heart has crux of the quality of absorbed(Ram) Gobind(Protecter of Go ie inderya or senses)..1..Pause..Liquer made of water of ganges is not devored by saint people(Proff of anti alchohal).when liquer fallls in Ganga it does not become anything else but becomes Ganges(Same way I Have become one with you).The way tarh(a sort of palm tree) is considered unpure but when it becomes considrable in from of Paper.People write things of devotion on it,it becomes worshipable,people salute it..2..My caste,Realtive still carry dead animals around Varanasi.By taking refuge to your name,head of the prest even bow to ravidas your dasa.(1293)

(Here again that in people absorbed in Falsehood still could be considering Ravidas Ji as lower born scavenger but by mercy of God enlightended persons born in Brahmin family also bowed to him.This is oppsite to rigid caste system due to mercy of God)

..malar..Those who recite God's name,Who worship God's lotus like feet,no one is equal to them.That one only is spread allover taking form of many put that one in heart..pause..In the house of whom glory of God is sung,Story of Bhagvat(lordship of Akal litererry)and nothing else is visible there,That person had caste untouchable washerman(Namdev).Glory of name told by vysa(Ved Vysa) and sanak is spread in seven continents..1..At whose place on eid and eid ul azaha cows were sloughtered and sheik peers were revered.Father use to do all such but his son did that ,that he became famous in three world as kabeer..2..Of whose family lower people still roam around kashi to pick dead animals .The prists/brahmins with mannerism salute/bow tothat slave of slaves ravidas.(1294)

(Here again there is another proof that Ravidas Ji And Kabeer Ji were not Brahmins and this is further proved by the fact that when Hindutva people made a sort of cow to depict Gurmat,They made 'lower caste' saints in its feet.That was proof enough that Brahmanical people have still such regard for those who were in fact true Brahmins due to there deeeds)

Brahmin is who understand braham(ie matter realy is nothing but manifestation of Akal.Earns the good deeds by practicesing reciting,heated or energetic worship and restraint.Keeps the faith of decency and contentment.breaks the bondage and becomes salvaged.That is the brahmin worthy of worship..16..

Kshtriya is one who is brave in deeds.(does) a good deed,By giving even self body.Recoganises the field and sows the seed(ie sees the concept/situation before doing some thing on it.).That khatri is accepted in the court of God.


(Here Guru Ji are telling that anyone who has such attribute is Brahmin or Khatri and nothing by Birth)

Ek Oankar Satiguru Prasad.. Lower caste by saying(repeatedly) name of God got highest status. Asks Vidur son of female salve in house of whom did Krishna went and alighted..1.. Brothers people listen the unexplainable story of God by which doubt,Sorrow ,hunger,all(such) gets removed..1..Pausue..Ravidas (Who was) Taner/cobbler praised sung glory of God for (even) little.

If lord God bestow mercy, person Nanak will touch feets/worship such(people) all the time/with pleasue.(733)

(Here again God's mercy by example is showen to defeat stigma of caste attached to birth as it is false.)

..suhi Mahala 5.. All ritulism(on the name of faith is) Sham that appears(by them) Yama loots as tax collector.

filth fulls(us).A person who sings the glory of God with saints That is done (made)/make that blotless..2..By reading Vedas,Katebs ,Samritis and all scritpture salvation is not obtained.One (Gods) word whicherver Gurmukh recites,To that glory comes/thats(soul) become pure or blotless ..3..

Khatri,Brahmin,Sud,Vaish preaching is common to all.Gurmukh recites name(of God),that is salvaged in kali,(for that says) Nanak (Akal is) in all atoms..4..3..50..


(here by saying that all four Professions are equal the ineqaulty based caste system is challenged.This means that as there is no descrimnation in giving education of highest level education and a common high status above four profession gurmukh is obtained.This is only to do for Hindus while others outside these four divisions are also been told to be Gurmukh and while by calling all mankind over here few lines are directed for four professions of hindus also.So if four become equal then caste will die how?

Well equal oppertunity to eat togather in langer(Roti) ,Equal oppertunity to marry by choice without birth or caste consideration(Beti) and to chose work of own choise(Jajmani).All three barriers of Matrimony,food and profession by birth are broken.

(Here birth in caste is termed useless and high level is to be given who has mercy to rember Akal).

..Bilawal..We stand one your door with humble feeling oh God.Who can think of me then you,kindly Open the door and give us your vision..1..Pause..All amount's lord are you,we have heard of your genorousity and Sacrifise and your good glory too have we herd from our ears.Poor like me should go to whom to ask for?all know that from you my spritual solace is possible..1..Jaidev,Namdev,Vipra sudama had endless mercy from you.Says kabir oh God you are capable and giver,and in donating four substances(desire,Finance,Faith and salvation) you do not take time.(856)

(Here to in front of God persons from various back ground are told to be equal and attaining high irrespective of birth or Caste).

(Das is giving this Sabad to prove one point.This in fact is the Philosophy which das heard on radio given by Sant Singh Ji Maskeen on one of the Prakash Guru Parb of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.He said like God is Casteless(Ajaat) and Regionless(Adesh) so do God's follwer must be.The way God is beyong such worldly barrier helping all so should a Sikh be not considering the caste or faith or Area of Human)Birth place Kesgarh during Amrit Sanchar only is something which is mark of libartion of regional bariier.Mother Mata Sahib Kaur and Father Guru Gobind Singh Ji librate from racial bariier so he have Kul Nash end of caste before conversion).

Page 56 of Vachitra natak also says that beliver in caste will never get salvation.Triya Charitar 266 pulls legs of Brahmin who is exploiting others.

It can be seen in pg 75 of Dasham Granth from Gobindsadan.org.

Those who have daoubt on Caste/birth.They do not leave love with God.

They get Salvation,There is no differance between them and God.

Those people who are afaraid of birth/castes(System).Leaves God and goes after them(Has faith in them)..They go into lake of hell(ie) Again and Again are born.

Friend Family wealth,mansion of me,

Well to do (due to ) mercy of Hand of them(Khalsa)

no diference between Me,God And Khalsa .

So by all this when we say that we are one faimly and our Father is Guru Gobind singh Ji,Mother Mata Sahib Kaur Ji(As per nihungs of Gurudwara Mata Sahib Kaur,Nadeed,Guru Gave mata a Child ,who will survive till world lasts).birth place KesGrah Sahib.

As son Khalsa was born in Kegarh Sahib. The five baptised one became Guru of Gurus by Baptising him after getting baptism. Thats why Gurudev call us his family,his Satguru.

In Dasham Granth Also Chaupyee sahib is like the verse of Japuji Sahib,Ayee Panthi Sagal Jamatee Man Jete Jag Jeet.With coming in of Panth(Sikhism) all(worlds citizens) are family member,One who wins the mind(of descrimination),Wins the world(as whole world belongs to him/her).

so choupayee sahib say

Sukhi Basai mero Parivara,(Let my family stay happyly)

Sevak Sikh Sabhai Kartar,(Serving Sikhs and all(world) oh lord).

so as Japu Ji Sahib say

Jis Hatth Jorh Kar Vekhe Soi Nanak Uttam Neech Na Koi.

So who has the power in hand(control),that (actually ) does and create Says Nanak no one is best (or) lower.

As Sikhism belives that all have God in them so no one is unequal even by birth or even by deeds.

As Gurmat wants the reform of evil doer like bhai Vidhichand.Or there are reference about Lord Valmiki who is refered as incarnation of lord Brahma in Dasham Granth Ji. So that person considerded as lower or burgler by other is respected in us.The so call people ,Who claim to be form the family of valmiki must understand that whole world is the family of Shri Valmiki Bhagwan Sahib.

If they become Sikh,then will be they actually becoming the family member of Sants,the family of Valmiki Ji.People often say like jains and arya Samajis while making fun of das,does your God is in shoe you wear,is the God in Excreta or spotum.

Das loughs at the level of mind of them.As they are bounded by Kaliyuga so when ever the glory of God be sung,Kali will take there mind in such things which take them awat from God.Same could be said to the missionarries belving in Satan as they too ask is God in Satan.

Shoe yes God Protects your feet as a shoe.If you bow to the shoe of Greatmen,you get salvation from its dust.

spootam,Yes god in this form remove impurties of body and protect body from toxins.If you serve an ailing and remove spootum,that service is salvation.

Stool,Lkie spootum it thus purfies you. It rather becomes your source of energy and enlighten your whom after becoming Gas or electricity.The same becomes your food if it goes in to pig or as a manure in a plant of wheat.

Satan yes there too,no one can remove God from Throne.Lucifer did wrong because Jehova wanted him to try,his mind and bad intention were made by no one else but yehova. If evil is not there,Death is due to evil if it was not there jesus did not come.so to have value of good evil or Satan is still not destroyed.

Iblis too was not forced to bow to Adem and made to misguied Sons of Adem so that Faithfull to Allah find place higher then non Belivers so God is in all.

Sat Shri Akal.

First about Amrit and uniting of Four Varnas issue.

Well it is coorect that Guru did break caste even in deeds doing manner by the fact that if we see Swami Ramterth Dandi Sanyasi book on Sikh Panth and Brhamin Dharam.there he qoutes a line from a book about Castre by some Saint(who is Santan Dharmi but not Sikh).

And there we have thing like unting of Varnas ie having qultiy of all the Varnas at least some in one person only.ie uniting four Varnas into one.

But yes due to caste system(not Varna but Jati) which was a product of misinterpetation of old scriptures racial ism crept in and Guru did broke it and Amrit to due to that only.

So intial Varnas were four professions but later they assumded caste or race and no one can transmigrate from one to another nor a person can have two Varnas at the same time.

Then see Ang 1161 for Baba Adam.

then this post from allaboout sikhim das took from some poster at Gursikhijeevan.com and thense brought from there and perhaps mentioned this also.

My personal belief based on my own research of talking to people and reading Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is that - ONE GOD, ONE GURU ONE PANTH, ONE SIKH..etc.. Ultimately we merge into the ONE God. Would you say this is right or wrong?

It is right.One ie Akal is God,Guru,Panth and Sikh and everything.

Then why do we have different factions or groups, whatever you want to call them, stating that there are 4 orders in Sikhism? Why would Guru Ji call upon people to unite them, only to break them again?

I believe I am refering to my brothers and sisters who call themselves Snatan Sikhs and the 4 orders of Sikhism. Nihung, Nirmale, Udasi and Seva panthi?

Anyway das is also from Sanatan side only.

Well in us a person can be Nirmala and Nihung or say Sevapanthi and Nirmala at the same time.

Likewise Nirmalas can learn fight also.And Nihungs can be scholar also.Son of Nihung can be Nirmala.Nihung can be converted into Udasi also.We must not forget Taksalis also.

So a person can be Taksali and Nihung also.

So in us there is something call minimun qulifiaction of being a Sikh and then some specialisation but due to mercy of Akal and not based upon birth.And good lot of flexiblility to join and to leave based upon mercy of Akal and free mind as result.No rigidity.

So they are not sect.Like in Army we have logisitc corps(We have SevaPanthi),Education corps(Taksalis),Public Realtions(Nirmalas),Intelligence(Udasis) Last one may have medical corps also but Nirmalas and Sevpanthis may have the same thing.

main infantray and cavilary is of Panth of Singhs who are Guru Panth.A Rank higher is of Nihung and highest is to be Akali.

All based upon qulifiactions and conduct and not by birth.

So not the sects but parts of the body doing special services.Forgive das for anything wrong but yes there has been many adultrations being done in orders as done in main body but we have to clean it and cure it instead of amptitution of body part.

I didn't get time to post other parts of "Khalsa commonwealth" article written by Prof Puran Singh Ji. It will be an eye opener for young Sikhs as it covers why Sikhism couldn't flourish the way it should have and reason is simple, that our preachers added their own personal flavour to it.

You've written:

But in Sikhism,Frankly speaking all such stuff is ended.hindus are requested that instead of changing thier books of interpolated verses,you can simple use our books as it does not have any such verses.And interpetations of such verses of hindus books can have true meaning if hindus understand our holy book clearly by a Sikh schoolar.

Now here you have given the wrong image. I failed to understand this that if we consider Gurbani revealed by God to Bhagats and Sikh Gurus himself then how can we claim Gurbani as our? Sikhism takes universal approach so let's not restrict it to "our" horizon and make it very limited.

Das respect the views of unbreakable Singh Ji.

And then coming to adimn Sahib's issuesed being raised.

Here in the statement what das wanted to convey was that if we trey to interpret in light of Gurbani,there could be mnay things in old Sanatan Dharmi or say hindu scriptures which will be clarifed now say after thousends of year of thier coming.

Das did mentioned true Clarifiaction of Purush Sutra of holy Veda being done in better way say in Sarbloh Granth.

Das can even say that not only so called Hindu scriptures but Holy Bible and Holy Veda can be interperted in more clearer way if we use standard of Gurbani over there.Ie Gurmat Kasuati.

As per das Gurus were sent not to destroy any faith but to complment the existing faiths and Gurmat is the ultimate faith.

Again das repeats that there is no need to edit scriputre say like Manusamriti even.By Bani of Guru Granth Sahib Ji,s help we can get the more clearer meanings of the same.

Like say if something is writtan in thier for Sudra it may not meand race but person with some low qultieis and by symbolism may be Sudrs in mind is told to be ended there.

Das is soory for using term 'ours' but the thing his that had the people who are trying to change the scriptures like Manusamriti had beheld Gurbani as thier also then they would not have acted in fear.

anyway das is soory and it is true that Gurbani is universal and forgive das for that.
