He is 100% spot on...this is penduness in panth i m talking about how panth is influenced by these pendu punjabiyaat mentality..instead of being an true khoji or sikh (shisya/student) they expect depht of sikhi or bhramvidya parcharaiks to bend over backwards to them and cater sikhi to them in a plate as long their own "intellect" does not have to do any work or as long as their "tunnel vision" of sikhi its NOT challenged.
There is also an similiar disturbing trend of sikh youths these days - focusing and Imitating on only "one soldier aspect" of sant jarnail singh bhindranwale during Dharam Yudh Morcha. Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale was pooran bhramgyani yodha. He deserves better from sikh youths. For Eg-
Why his early journey life towards santhood overlooked and not followed by youth?
Why his nitneem being overlooked and not followed by youth?
Why his life of gaining bhramvidya overlooked and not followed by youth?
Why we are only following his one aspect- sipahi of his life?
You don't have to answer in this thread..just answer within yourself.
Anyway, coming back to this topic as kam suggested earlier in other post...
Damdami taksal is "Bhramvidya" school. As normal school, each school- different level/grades, different syallbus..test etc. Here is an breif syallibus listed below:
In order to be gyani in Sikh Theology and have understanding of gurbani you need to have through understanding of nine granths before hand.. The nine granths are
Parbodh Chandar Natak
These are only taught in Bhindra now all this vidiya has not existed at Mehta since Sant Jarnail Singh Ji stopped teching during the Dharam Yudh Morcha. Thse granths are needed as the basis to understand gurbani then further work can be done by learning the Vedant Paribhasha, Upnishads, Moksh Panth Parkash, Adhyatam Parkash, etc
Only after these are studied should you start on the gazals of bhai nand lal and the works of Bhai Gurdas Ji.
Giani Harbhajan Singh Ji Dhudhike Wale and Baba Hari Singh Ji Randhawe Wale are possibly the best ustaads at the moment for all these granths as many of the other ustaads have only worked up to vichar sagar and not even heard of the birti parbhakar.
They are taught before you start any gurbani, they are your foundation to understanding gurbani, they dont effect the arths but are the foundations fr it. They are your early schooling. It is the same as if you ever wanted to do a degree you need your years of schooling before to understand the details to something like astronominal aeronuticals or quantam gravity physics. The Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is the most difficult of any granth as it is easy to read but the meanings are an endless ocean and without the necessary pre education you cant fully comprehend the teachings in either Gurbani or Ithaas.
