    Yes. And the Sikh panth will be like the Christian denominations who hilariously don't believe in really anything anymore, other than whatever the latest idea of the day is from the "hip" intellectuals. If you're only a year or so behind the curve, you're a racist, you're an able-ist, a homophobe, transphobe, etc. This, by the way, is in itself a good idea to keep sex-segregated seating in Gurdwaras, because it underlines the idea of two sexes. You will see a push for mixed seating for exactly this reason (that otherwise people have to make a binary choice). Also, you'll see people questioning Guru Gobind Singh ji's decision to make a binary split on sex naming his Khalsa members "Singh" or "Kaur". Since these explicitly split up Sikhs into male and female, that'll be the 1st thing on the chopping block. Mixed Panj Piyare. It'll be like a diversity parade. Every Punj Piyare will have to have 3 "women" and 2 "men", 1 of them, of course, transitioned to something, or nothing. 1 of them African, 1 white, 1 Indian, 1 Pacific Islander, maybe 1 Punjabi. 1 of them, at least, disabled. So they won't be able to sit in bir asan, of course. They'll have chairs in front of the Amrit bata. And so will the sangat. 1 of them will not even be able to speak, so they'll just use a voice synthesizer--Steven Hawkins-style.

    Expect gay and transgender Anand Karaj ceremonies in the near future. No bundha with an ounce of awareness and anakh wants to be associated with a belief system that promotes this type of shite. Soon, Sikhi in the West will be populated by a gaggle of pink-turbanned, bearded, effeminate weirdos, and those who will object will be vilified as being un-Sikh and lacking Gurmat values. This is clown world.

    Modern-day sikhs/singhs aren't warriors, which is a shame. Most of the actual sikhs in Canada especially are soft as they come, they don't exercise, know how to fight, or stand their ground, instead they're pushovers, and I'm talking about the Sikhs who were born and raised in Canada they're either fat or really skinny with no muscle allowing them to become targets of bullying and crime, not only that they also lack confidence which is something every singh needs, as they should be brave and stand up for others. We need to start making sikh youth work out from a early age and get them on a diet, make them work out and take fighting classes, it's not even just the youth, some adults are also lacking muscle and strength. How are you expected to defend your faith and the people around you, if you aren't built to do so? They carry kirpans but can't even use them properly lol. It's kinda ironic considering how the non-sikh punjabi people (the fakes) are the ones with the "lion courage"

    I really do not understand why sikh channel give over airtime to these essentially blind to gurmat people. Why is it necessary for someone whose main YT channel was about gurmat to somehow become a cheerleader for such folks , is it not enough of a task to do vichar on sikhi ? Sikhi has no opinion on such goings on except to say these are people suffering under delusions and influence of maya, they can be helped by medicine of naam. Nothing more to be said , sikhi is never going to change to accomodate manmat at any level so they should get some nimrata and stop insisting that they are right and Guru ji is wrong. Anand Karaj is for gurmukhs.

    I am a gay man myself , although married to a woman and with my baby on the way, I am almost living my life just as any other heterosexual man might of my age . Although its hypocrite of me to comment on another people's life who choose to brave it out in open, when I have chosen to go as deep in the closet as possible lol, but nonetheless I believe there's a fine line between expressing yourself and being a total a$$ about it . SO MUCH OF DHADHAA and a dumaala and you prance around like a wuss screaming your sexuality, what do you get by discrediting your faith so much and making a mockery out of it . Its a nuisance. If you like to express yourself so much, why can't you simply shorn off your beard and hair , workout on yourself and go in the gay scene. You will encounter more f**k buddies , after all, unfortunately thats whats gay life has to offer for the most of us -- a big reason why I chose traditional life of marriage and kids. Makes me skeptical of all these 'bachelor' based 'gursikh' groups. The kind of shhit that goes beneath the surface is worrying. We're inadvertently raising future catholic church-like scandals

    Not a problem. The flu lasts 5 days at most; a week at worst. No need to plan a timetable without Nitnem. If a person can stare at a smartphone all day when supposedly ill, Nitnem shouldn't be an issue when the effects begin to recede. Get back on the wagon.

    Now days this video is very important. I've noticed many people out of Islamo-Philia in the last few years down playing the atrocities of Muslim rulers in the past and inflating the role of Hindus. This can be seen by many misguided Khalistanis. Besides very few know about the Sirhindi, Jahangir role in Guru jees Shaheedi unless you have read books by Dr Ganda Singh and Sirdar Kapoor Singh. You talk to any Sikh or even Kathavachak about Sirhindi they would have no idea who this person is. Nothing wrong with being friendly with Muslims. But one should not try to change history out of one's political inclinations.

    The above pangtee refer to "Hari Jan". Before you jump the gun in defending Santa Sio as "Hari Jan", understand who exactly SatGuroo has called a a "Hari Jan" : ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਜਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਪੈ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਭਗਤੁ ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਨਹੀ ਛਪੈ ॥ Hari Jan jaaps naam 24/7 Hari Jan never hides If Santa Sio (as Jatheydaar..and as what his followers call him as "panth patshah"- so called) was truly a Hari Jan with 24/7 naam kamae, its unlikely any force in the world could have made him bend to Indhira. Secondly, as Jathedaar of guru ki fauj, we don't know where he was during and after when Sri Darbar Sahib was under attack. Many Sikhs turned their back on the Panth in 1984, but Santa Sio as not only remained dormant. He betrayed panth by bowing to Indhira . What does Gurbani say of a person like this? ਸਾਹਿਬੁ ਸੰਕਟਵੈ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਭਜੈ ॥ If the servant runs away when his master(Satguroo) is in trouble, ਚਿਰੰਕਾਲ ਨ ਜੀਵੈ ਦੋਊ ਕੁਲ ਲਜੈ ॥੧॥ he will not have a long life, and he brings shame to all his family. ||1|| Santa Sio's jivan in panth ended when Panth declared him as tankhaiya. There is no sin in his ninda , neither was a "Hari Jan" in anyway.

    Testosterone. It needs to be upped. Don't fall for the 'toxic masculinity' lie being pushed by society's engineers. They're currently in the process of emasculating the male body, soul, and mind; makes a takeover relatively straightforward when the males of the world -- who should traditionally band together and provide stern opposition -- are kvetching and succumbing to their neurosis on the sidelines. Train your mind, too, else you'll be a strong-bodied individual without the necessary mental abilities to discern when you're being taken for a fool. You'll just be a blunt instrument; muscle for hire without the mental prowess to resort to a Plan B, C, or D when the situation calls for it.

    This'll upset most of us on here, but it's an uncomfortable truth: the first one was, "Accept immigrants." To borrow a brilliant phrase that you coined a few years ago, we were the canaries down the mine, or at least our elders were when the West opened its doors to the Commonwealth nations for assistance in rebuilding Europe after the devastation of WW2. We were step one of the plan. Again, it's a truth that might be cognitively devastating for some to accept -- it is slightly dehumanising in a way, and the last thing any advanced sentient being wants to acknowledge is they might be viewed as less (by others) than the image they hold of themselves in their own consciousness -- but it's one that must be acknowledged if we're to be honest and proceed with some brand of plan. Guess who campaigned and lobbied for third-world immigrants to be allowed into the White man's hallowed abode, lol? Guess who owned most of the sea-faring ships that brought over most of the Commonwealth workforce who eventually ended up settling here? They won't teach you any of this in schools or write articles about it on the BBC, lol. We're as much pawns in this game as the homosexuals and other minority interest groups. We don't REALLY matter. We're just buffers, ultimately, and when there's a struggle or a battle, it's the buffers who are the first to feel the onslaught. If all we ever see is what's at the end of our collective nose, and the thought of what lays beyond is considered to be too terrifying a prospect to broach, then we'll continue going around in circles, afraid to confront those terrifying and taboo truths that we've deluded ourselves in believing don't exist or at least don't apply to us. Once we allow our thought processes and our conscience to be censored and controlled by someone, I truly believe there is no point to that person's humanity. That's a living death right there.

    Just 3 drops of coconut or almond oil on your navel b4 sleeping. For your loved ones friends anyone..its a miracle cure for many internal issues Shared as received. DID YOU KNOW? Our belly button (NABHI ) is an amazing gift given to us by our creator. A 62 year old man had poor vision in his left eye. He could hardly see especially at night and was told by eye specialists that his eyes were in a good condition but the only problem was that the veins supplying blood to his eyes were dried up and he would never be able to see again. According to Science, the first part created after conception takes place is the belly button. After it’s created, it joins to the mother’s placenta through the umbilical chord. Our belly button is surely an amazing thing! According to science, after a person has passed away, the belly button is still warm for 3 hours the reason being that when a woman conceives a child, her belly button supplies nourishment to the child through the child’s belly button. And a fully grown child is formed in 270 days = 9 months. This is the reason all our veins are connected to our belly button which makes it the focal point of our body. Belly button is life itself! The “PECHOTI” is situated behind the belly button which has 72,000 plus veins over it. The total amount of blood vessels we have in our body are equal to twice the circumference of the earth. Applying oil to belly button CURES dryness of eyes, poor eyesight, pancreas over or under working, cracked heels and lips, keeps face glowing, shiny hair, knee pain, shivering, lethargy, joint pains, dry skin. REMEDY For dryness of eyes, poor eyesight, fungus in nails, glowing skin, shiny hair At night before bed time, put 3 drops of pure ghee or coconut oil in your belly button and spread it 1 and half inches around your belly button. For knee pain At night before bed time, put 3 drops of castor oil in your belly button and spread it 1 and half inches around your belly button. For shivering and lethargy, relief from joint pain, dry skin At night before bed time, put 3 drops of mustard oil in your belly button and spread it 1 and half inches around your belly button. WHY PUT OIL IN YOUR BELLY BUTTON? You belly button can detect which veins have dried up and pass this oil to it hence open them up. When a baby has a stomach ache, we normally mix asafoetida (hing) and water or oil and apply around the naval. Within minutes the ache is cured. Oil works the same way. Try it. There's no harm in trying. You can keep a small dropper bottle with the required oil next to your bed and drop few drops onto navel and massage it before going to sleep. This will make it convenient to pour and avoid accidental spillage. I am forwarding this valuable and very useful information received from a very good friend. Dr. Ajay. D. Assistant professor

    A perspective on how emotions affect health... You are not a drop in the ocean, but an ocean in every drop...said Rumi. What did he mean by that... every cell in our body is intelligent to think and act. We have 60 trillion cells in our body, and our health depends a lot on the harmonic balance and cohesion of the cells with each other... In the movie Eat, Pray Love, Julia Roberts visits a wise man in Bali, and he advises her not to try too hard to meditate.. in fact he suggests that medidation is nothing but smiling and the line that is a kicker, is " Smile with your liver " If you believe that this is just a metaphor, lets look at the other end of the spectrum, to prove just how crucial this is.. Let us say you hold a negative emotion towards somebody, something or some event in your life... each time you think of that your whole body relives the emotional upheaval of that association.. Your mind doesn't have a mind of its own, and doesn't know if the event is happening in real time or it is being replayed.. So it produces the same stress hormores namely cortisol.. each and every cell of your body starts feeling the same emotion of let us say "hatred" towards that event, person or experience all over again... The body isn't at ease.. this is a state where the condition of dis-ease sets in.... If you continue to live in that state, your cells are now getting conditioned to live in the same state... Health of a person, depends on how well all the systems of the body and the 60 trillion cells play the melody of harmony together.. When the cells are living in a state of hatred.. they soon start exhibiting that with each other and killing healthy cells in the body...This leads to many forms of auto immune disease... Like Rumi said.. you are a drop in the ocean, you are an ocean in every drop... Be careful of your thoughts, your feelings and your emotions... Forgive people,not because they deserve it, but because you need it...Stay happy, stay healthy. Note: got the above lovely piece of truth from a friend, which I liked, and felt like sharing with the sangat here. Sat Sree Akal.

    I was actually wondering the same thing, since I do that sometimes. One thing I would mention though is to also try to memorize the translations of all punj baniaa so your mind doesn't wander off and when it tries to think of what each tuk means it can feel more anand doing it.

    waheguru jee ka khalsa! waheguru jee kee fateh!! i got this in an email...and wanted to share it with the sangath... enjoy.... Siri Kirtan Sohila Sahib In Sikh history, there are two events which show the importance of Kirtan Sohila Ji’s Bani: 1st Event After traveling for many years and showing the people of the world the path to God, Guru Nanak Dev Ji came to a land near the banks of the Ravi River. This Land belonged to a wealthy man named Krori Mal who donated this entire land to Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The land was renamed to Kartarpur. Guru Nanak Dev Ji spent the later years of his life here in Kartarpur along with Bhai Lehna Ji. One afternoon, while staying in Kartarpur, Bhai Lehna Ji was giving Guru Nanak Dev Ji a massage. What did Bhai Lehna Ji see? When he first started the massage Guru Nanak Saheb Ji was fine. He had no marks or cuts on his body, but now out of nowhere Guru Ji’s feet were bleeding. There were cuts in the feet as if they had walked over some prickles or something sharp. Bhai Lehna Ji was shocked! He asked, “Guru Ji, you are sitting here yet how come your feet have started to bleed? How come there are cuts in your feet as if you have walked over something sharp?” Guru Nanak Dev Ji said that there is a Sikh who is milking goats out in the field. Call that Sikh here and then I will give you the answer to your question. Guru Ji sent another Sikh to call the Sikh in the fields. When the messenger reached the fields the Sikh was reading the Bani of Kirtan Sohila while he was milking the goats. The messenger told the Sikh that Guru Ji was calling him. The Sikh came and bowed to Guru Ji. Guru Nanak Dev Ji then told the Sikh, “Whenever anybody reads the Bani that you were reciting (Kirtan Sohila), I am always present there. While you were walking around in the fields reading Kirtan Sohila, I was walking behind you listening to the Bani. I didn’t let a single cut come on to your body; instead I took the cuts for you.” The Sikh asked Guru Ji for forgiveness and asked what he should do now. Guru Ji told him that Kirtan Sohila Bani should be read at night time before going to sleep. First you should wash your hands, feet, and face and then read the Bani with full concentration. If you do this, then I will sit by that person’s side and listen. From this moment on, Kirtan Sohila started to be read at night time. Kirtan Sohila is a very short Bani, but some people are so lazy that they go to sleep without reading it. It’s not like Sukhmani Saheb which is very long. It is only a few small shabads. If someone reads this Bani before going to sleep then they will not have any nightmares during the night. If you die during your sleep you will not become a ghost or evil spirit in your next life. Guru Ji will look after you. This is Guru Ji’s Hukam, “That person who reads Kirtan Sohila before going to sleep will be close to me.” While reading this Bani with concentration you should think in your mind that Guru Ji is sitting by listening to me reading the Bani. This Bani is comprised of 5 shabads; 3 from Guru Nanak Dev Ji and one each by the fourth and fifth Gurus. Even Bhai Gurdas Ji writes that we should read Kirtan Sohila before going to sleep: sMJY sodr gwvxw mn mylI kr myl imlµdy] rwqI kIrqn soihlw kr AwrqI prswd vMfMdy] sa(n)jhai sodhar ga avanaa man maelee kar mael mila(n)dhae||raathee keerathan sohilaa kar aarathee parasaadh va(n)dda(n)dhae|| Translation: They sing the Sodar in the evening and heartily associate with one another. Having recited the Sohila and made supplication at night they distribute sacred food (prasad). 2nd Event During the time that Guru Arjun Dev Ji was writing the Aad Granth Saheb, there was a Sikh who use to trade horses. He would buy horses and then sell them for a higher price to make a profit. However, some crooks started to bother this Sikh. When he would buy new horses, these crooks would come and steal the horses from the Sikh. The Sikh came to Guru Arjun Dev Ji and said, “Guru Ji, I sell horses for a living, but crooks have started to steal my horses and I am losing a lot of money. I don’t know what to do. Please tell me some shabads that will help me.” Guru Ji said that before you go to sleep, read the following four shabads before you read Kirtan Sohila Ji’s Bani: 1) soriT mhlw 5 ] gur kw sbdu rKvwry ] caukI cauigrd hmwry ]sorat(h) mehalaa 5 ||gur kaa sabadh rakhavaarae ||choukee chougiradh hamaarae || Translation: Sorat'h, Fifth Mehl: The Word of the Guru's Shabad is my Saving Grace. It is a guardian posted on all four sides around me. 2) iblwvlu mhlw 5 ] qwqI vwau n lgeI pwrbRhm srxweI ]cauigrd hmwrY rwm kwr duKu lgY n BweI ]1] bilaaval mehalaa 5 || thaathee vaao n lagee paarabr eham saranaaee || chougiradh hamaarai raam kaar dhukh lagai n bhaaee ||1|| Translation: Bilaaval, Fifth Mehl: The hot wind does not even touch one who is under the Protection of the Supreme Lord God. On all four sides I am surrounded by the Lord's Circle of Protection; pain does not afflict me, O Siblings of Destiny. ||1|| 3) sloku ] jh swDU goibd Bjnu kIrqnu nwnk nIq ] xw hau xw qUM xh Cutih inkit n jweIAhu dUq ]1] salok || jeh saadhhoo gobidh bhajan keerathan naanak neeth || naa ho naa thoo(n) neh shhuttehi nikatt n jaaeeahu dhooth ||1|| Translation: Shalok: Where the Holy people constantly vibrate the Kirtan of the Praises of the Lord of the Universe, O Nanak - the Righteous Judge says, ""Do not approach that place, O Messenger of Death, or else neither you nor I shall escape!""||1|| 4) slok mÚ 5 ]mn mih icqvau icqvnI audmu krau auiT nIq ] hir kIrqn kw Awhro hir dyhu nwnk ky mIq ]1] salok ma 5 || man mehi chithavo chithavanee oudham karo out(h) neeth || har keerathan kaa aaharo har dhaehu naanak kae meeth ||1|| Translation: Shalok, Fifth Mehl: Within my mind, I think thoughts of always rising early, and making the effort. O Lord, my Friend, please bless Nanak with the habit of singing the Kirtan of the Lord's Praises. ||1|| Guru Ji said that if you do this and then do an ardas, then a steel fort wil l be made around you and nobody will be able to enter or leave from that area. This fortress will stay around you up to the time that you wake up, take a bath, and read Jap Ji Saheb Ji’s Bani. The Sikh thanked Guru Ji for the help and left. He bought new horses and took them to another village to sell. When it became dark, the Sikh decided to rest for the night. The thieves also were following the Sikh. They waited for the Sikh to fall asleep. Before going to sleep, the Sikh did exactly what Guru Ji told him to do. As soon as he finished reading Kirtan Sohila Ji and did the ardas a steel fort was put around the Sikh. The thieves tried to come in and steal the horses, but they could not enter. They tried this for many nights, but failed to enter each time. One day the Sikh was reading Kirtan Sohila Ji’s Bani and fell asleep halfway through, so the fort was not full erected around him. The thieves quickly entered the building and tied up the horses, but at the same time the Sikh woke up. He did the entire Kirtan Sohila’s Bani and did an ardas and the steel fort was put into place. The thieves tried to leave the building, but could not leave because of the fort. Finally, morning came and the Sikh woke up, took a bath, and then read Jap Ji Saheb and the Fort opened. The thieves were so surprised that they actually went up to the Sikh and asked him what special Mantra he reads that makes this special fort around him. The Sikh told them that this is a Bani of the Satguru. He took the thieves to meet Guru Arjun Dev Ji. Guru Ji made those thieves into Sikhs and showed them the path to salvation. Kirtan Sohila’s Bani controls our lustful thoughts and anger during the night. The five evils can’t come and rob us of our good deeds. The Singhs of the past all use to first read the 4 shabads, followed by Kirtan Sohila, followed by an ardas. Before this same routine was also followed at Sri Harmandir Saheb Ji. However, after the Shromani Committee took power, they changed the routine. They stopped reading the 4 shabads in the beginning. They only read the following shabads. iblwvlu mhlw 5 ]qwqI vwau n lgeI pwrbRhm srxweI ]cauigrd hmwrY rwm kwr duKu lgY n BweI ]1] bilaaval mehalaa 5 || thaathee vaao n lagee paarabreham saranaaee || chougiradh hamaarai raam kaar dhukh lagai n bhaaee ||1|| and isr msok rK´w pwrbRhmM hso kwXw rK´w prmysÍrh ] sir masok rakhyaa paarabrehama(n) haso kaayaa rakhyaa paramaesvareh || However, they stopped reading the other shabads. They did not realize that this is a Maryada started by Guru Ji themselves and we do not have the right to stop reading the 4 shabads at the beginning. Many people have also stopped reading the shabads just by seeing the change in routine at Sri Harmandir Saheb. If we stop reading Bani according to the instructions of our Guru, then how can we expect to gain anything out of it. When we read all four shabads followed by the Kirtan Sohila and Ardas, only then will the fortress be made around us. When we have stopped reading the Bani according to the Guru’s maryada, then how can we expect to have the fortress around us which will save us from thieves and which will save us from our own lustful desires.
