  1. It never fails to amaze me how obsessed Sikhs are with their 'image' rather than reality. This is probably one of the Nihang practices which goes back pre-1849 and just because some of us have become squeamish and sterilized in other parts of the world, it wont stop them doing this. You could go there and try to stop them, but I recommend you think carefully before offending them - they are not acting when they say they know how to use swords!

  2. Source : -------------- In the second world war, the Sikhs fought in the British army and many Sikhs gave their lives fighting for Britain. Many Sikhs fought in Europe too and the Sikhs were recognized for their outstanding performance in the war. After the war was over, the Sikh regiments were brought back to India by road. As thus, they had to pass through Afghanistan and present day Pakistan, to arrive in India. When the Sikh regiment reached Jamraud, the Sikhs requested the officer in charge to stay at Jamraud as they wanted to visit the Gurudwara that stands there in the swe

  3. Iunno man I just put those translations because it sounds like Singh559 wanted to know the Bhaav Arths. Didn't do it to prove one teeka is better than the other. People really have to learn to be more positive and just live together and work with everybody's opinions and backgrounds. Sometime I learn all these people arguing on these forum and I wonder what they do for a living and/or how many friends they have and how many people want to be around them and what their family atmosphere is. No offense to anyone but people really have to stop saying their way is right and that's final. Take

  4. Also the Guru's protected villages and people from animals that would attempt to hurt them. Before someone talks about hunting, they should know the battle rules that Satguru gave to the Singhs. If an enemy is running away from the battle field then let him go and don't chase or kill him. Only attack those that are attacking us. These are the orders of Satguru for the battlefield. An animal that is running away can't be killed by a Singh. Surely a deer or goat that is defenceless and is running away from the aggressor as no intentions to attack. Those that want to hunt go toe to toe wi

Islam have 72 sects, within 72 sects there are 294 sub sect factions always fighting among each other, same thing with christianity and hinduism, buddhism....this is kalyug..no dharam is safer from any divisions..only maharaj or his bhramgyani yodha/tat vetaie mahapursh can bring everyone together..us mere mortals can surely try but always fall short on it...i guess thats part of hakum.!!!!!

  7. I think everyone has their own mahapurash that they admire. I have respect for all the Sants and Mahapurakhs, and why wouldnt I? They have reached levels with the Guru's grace where I cant even imagine to think of. That said, my love for Baba Ishar Singh ji Nanaksar kaleran is more than any other mahapurakhs. Sometimes you just feel connected and special with one mahapurakh. For me, this is due to the experiences I have heard from my elders who did sangat of Baba ji. I think its okay if I decide to hold someone in more respect in our minds over the others. Its an innerpersonal experience.

  8. There is nothing wrong with using teekas (be it faridkot teeka, sato gali wala teka or prof sahib sing teeka among others etc) to help us understand gurbani but the real profound experience of gurbani comes from nirgun paratma via one own's spiritual growth in stages...defining agami gurbani exactly in its pure original total form is like defining Nirgun all prevading Vahiguroo which our own guru sahiban didn't put any defining limit or end to it !!.. Agami Gurbani speaks to every human consciousness at different stage or avastha. Hence rightly so, no sampardaie (faridkot teeka) nor regula

  13. This is the full, basic Nitnem in Gurmukhi with an English translation. All the Banis are in line with the prescribed minimum by DDT. The Gutka Sahib includes the 7 daily banis, ardass, rakhya lei shabads, and a fair size selection of additional shabads. It's formatted for the Sony ebook reader, but this should work just fine on Kindle or any other ebook reader as well. Admins, please make this a sticky. Sampooran Nitnem Gutka.pdf

  14. Ok, this has been really annoying me for a while now. It has been going on for quite while and yet as far as i am aware no one has batted an eyelid. Not just non Amritdharis are guilty of this but so are countless of Amritdharis and Gursikhs. So far this year I have received 6 wedding and Akhand Paath cards and in each and every one of them there is a tuk from bani! Two of these cards I have received from Amritdhari families. I think putting bani in these cards is extremely disrespectful! The cards if posted get thrown all over the place and are held by someone who may have just had a bacon

  16. Yes Gurpreet, we deleted that thread because some members were being rude & insensitive to others. The reason we closed that thread was to clear/edit previous replies where some members were mentioning names and again that was being very insensitive. We cleared all replies and decided to give it another chance but then again at the end we got over dozen replies of same crap. We should have never reopened that thread but again we tried to keep our forums open for all sort of viewpoints but we do have to put some limits on extremely negative quality of topics, replies etc.

  17. In US, if you are wearing a turban and a beard, you are a Taliban/ muslim. He should use this platform to show that public display of beard and turban = SIKH ( 99.9% of the time) not a Taliban or muslim. And also show Sikhs in a more positive upbeat attitude. I have to commend this guy, because he went in with full flowing beard, he didnt even tie or gel it. As for singing kaami or mayavi songs, that is a bit negative ; but that should be left for him to decide, its between him and Guru ji.

Every amritdhari sikh wears SIRI SAHIB(forgive me if there is any spelling mistake or use of wrong word) Siri sahib is If I am allowed to say symbolises KIRPAAN. The point is actually how many amritdhari people actually know the actual way it is used as a warrior. There is proper training needed to use a SHASTAR. How many Gurudawara's have actually facility to train them. The answer we know. 2.Most important and it is for every sikh. Every sikh vows to their GURU Guru Granth Sahib but how many sikhs have actually read

When Sant Baba Isher Singh ji was at Rara Sahib, only 2 Singh's got to go down to the bottom story of the Bhora sahib.

  22. Dear Lucksingh99, The point u and me want to put forward won't be taken by those people who get defination from people like anandmurti and that to of value of sikhism. The troublesome time which followers of Nanak has seen can't be judged by people who doesn't test the facts on hard ground of reality. Dear tuhintuhin, I hope u search jatka in hazoor sahib in google and then put forward the point. According to gurmat many sikh doesn't agree with their practise.

  23. When you watch this video, do you think this is what Sikhs should be known for? These people are ruining the Sikh image and I know this has been disputed many times and I don't know if the Sikh community will EVER be on the same page. But in my opinion this is just stupid. These people are just looking for an excuse to eat meat...! Even if I wasn't a Sikh, I would never EVER want to see this happening. Taking the life of an innocent animal who has done nothing to harm you just so you can eat some meat? I know this is not accepted in Sikhism. Sikhism is a different religion, and the vid

  24. Brother this is where it gets so unfortunate for us. I could not care less if non-Sikhs see Nihangs doing bhang or jhatka or whatever. The firanghi are a fickle bunch who's norms and expectations change like their fashions. I care more for what the Nihangs are doing to claim back their glories and become what they before the British neutered them. If we are to be so squeamish about a goat what of the battlefield? Not every Mughal/Afghan/Maratha/British we fought was an evildoer of unimaginable proportions. But they were enemies and had to be killed. How did Sikhs know how sharp their weapons

Dhumma and Rode, who was Akal Takht chief during Operation Black Thunder-II in 1988, both shared the dais with Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal here this evening.

  28. Facts : Nobody from the BBC has seen Amarjit Kaur's passport.......She wasn't even arrested and certainly didn't bring her passport along to the rendevouz. So who can say for sure she is an 'Indian national' ? Amarjit Kaur stated herself that the way her business works is that she herself calls girls over on 6 month visas. Now any fool knows that the 6 month visas are visitor visas sponsored by extended family members. They are not 'work' visas and they are not 'student' visas. Thus, it is common sense that she has been regularly calling over innocent female members of her own extend

As for bigotry, I made very clear and reasonable points on the Non Punjabi Sikh thread. The fact that others would rather slur and throw insults when faced with opposing points that dont fit their world view is not my fault. There is nothing wrong with vegetarianism, but veganism when not well researched is as bad as some other diets. Many vegans have to go to their doctors in the learning curve that is changing diets. D

Please check and only download books, stream films for free if they are actually free to buy, otherwise spend a little amount to get the real thing. I think a often general misconception is giving out things for free is seva, copy Vismaad DVDs here, give out free ebooks there. Some blessed people spend countless time, effort and money to produce Sikhi items and income from sales helps them recoup the money they initially put in. Some people who start such ventures do not even recoup the amount of money the

Gurfateh, My local Gurdwara are seeking to start up classes for Children’s self defence/martial arts and are looking for instructors who will act as role models first i.e. Gursikhs with the martial arts aspect following on. We believe having an amritdhari instructor will give the kids a role model to look up to and aspire to. The intention being that they will learn sikhi principles along with the self confidence not only to look after themselves and others but also the confidence in the sikhi saroop. We are looking for recommendations of such gursikhs in and around the Birmingham area, so

I respect avtars, prophets of other dharams however why would a sikh have an avtar of another religion as the opening page if their site? The only reason can be is that they actually think that these avtars are equals or similar to our Guru Sahiban. They won't succeed in their propoganda because it is false and in the end falshood will perish. I feel sorry for those genuine Sikhs who just go to train with

Written in a dialogue form, Swami puts out a question and then answers it. I am not averse to this kind of narration. At the very outset, the Swami refers to <> (Ik-Ongkar) as OM, which of course is inaccurate. Swami didn’t know Punjabi language nor did he know the Gurmukhi alphabets. Given his total ignorance why Swami would set himself for ridicule? Was he really under any compulsion to resort to committing errors which he should hav
