  4. It's not begging, its called working things out through legal process and framework. Missionaries type khalistanis abroad won't get it, they expect others to launch a war in India from abroad while they are sitting comfy on leather chairs at everyone else expense, throwing everyone else under the bus Don't the high and mighty self righetous sikhs abroad present themselves helplessly infront of hindu indian custom border officials when they go to India at the airport? What happens to their anakh then? that can be considering form of begging too- presenting themselves helplessly infront of indi

  5. I made it very clear in my second sentence who can successfully run Gurdwaras. Since you and others missed it the first time. Here it is again: I have seen personally the Sikh community grow when Amritdhari/Sehajdhari Sikhs take control of a Gurdwara or be another institution like a school. Do you know why they are successful. Not because how smart they are or how well they are able to make connections with stakeholders in the community. But because they bow at the feet of Guru ji and let Guru ji run the show by following instructions. And for your idealism and realism remark. I see

  6. Bharat Mat Darpan - Mahant Ganesha Singh A detailed guide to over 200 different religions and sects of India. It was written earlier, I think maybe sometime between 1830-1870, but then republished for a second time in 1926. This is the second publication. It has a history of Nihang Singhs, Akalis, Khalse Panth, Kabir Panth, and many many others. edit: Updated link

Members of parliament and cabinet ministers distributed kerosene oil and white phosphorous. Witnesses talked about the use of rubber tyres to trap the target, create thick clouds of toxins and facilitate combustion. I was a teenager in

  14. Patit means who is living out of the bana(identity of sikhism).. There is nothing like good and bad to judge among them....infact these things come in the character of people.. At some point it seems like " they (patit) want to take the taste of Gurus but they don't wanna give their own taste to Gurus..." that means again "They wanna take the 100 percent of gurus but they don't wanna give their 100 percent to the gurus..." There are thousands of hindus ,muslims, Christians who believe in the teachings of the gurus and follow them but does it mean that we should give them right to jud

  18. Jaspreet singh ji, Please show the sangata how it should be done. Shall we start talking about tribalism politics in local gurdwara you go to? At this rate I wouldn't trust so called gurdwara commitee members of my local gurdwara with my son day care activities let alone guru maharaj gurdwara.. Sorry khalsa title is earned by actions not empty words or rhetoric not automatically given to any Joe blow who appear to be sikh.

  19. jaspreet, your post smacks of idealism, not realism. and stop twisting what i am saying, if you think that being amritdhari automatically makes you better to handle the job of running a gurdwara, why are so mnay gurdwaras in the UK, which are run by amritdharis performing so badly. why is it that the gurdwaras run by people elected on the basis that they are amritdhari and so they must know what they are doing, making a mess of the gurdwara s and messing up the next generation. the truth is that it is best to have amritdharis who are actually good at management running gurdwaras. failing th

I have seen personally the Sikh community grow when Amritdhari/Sehajdhari Sikhs take control of a Gurdwara or be another institution like a school. Do you know why they are successful. Not because how smart they are or how well they are able to make connections with stakeholders in the community. But because they bow at the feet of Guru ji and let Guru ji run the show by following instructions. I can name you other examples from history by starting from the Second Guru of the Sikhs. This plan is ALWAYS successful. No extra effo

  22. This is a sensible decision from the Akal Takht. It sets a basic minimum of what a Gurudwara administrator should be. You only hope their deeds and actions mirror their outward appearance. I hope this doesnt deter non Amritdahris to not get involved in the running of the Gurudwara, sewa comes in many forms and ultimately we all aspire to one day become an amritdahri sikh.

  23. This is a great step by the Akal Takht. It is interesting that as soon as a decision is made, people will start to criticising it. There is nothing in the Hukumnama which stop monas from taking part in sewa or any functioning of the Gurdwara apart from taking a leadership role in the committee. Patit does mean someone who has broken their rehat but sabut soorat means that the committee members should at least be Keshdharis.

  26. I had the same problem when mine was growing. I would say let it grow long and then start combing. You'll have enough Daari to comb. Tie it after you shower for a few minutes.

  27. Arya samaj was on the scene much before 1920s/1930s. While there may be a few conversion of jats here and there, Jats are staunch Hindus. Hindu Jats are mostly concentrated in rajasthan where they may be more in numbers than rajputs followed by Haryana and Western UP.Chaudhari Charan singh, their leader from western UP was a rabid anti sikh figure who quite a few times passed anti sikh remarks openly.

  28. You've got me confused here :stupidme: Do you mean that some of us maybe more gurmat (say 90%) compared to others (say 80%) ? OR Do you mean that ONE person's gurmat is NOT another persons, or One's gurmat is another's manmat ?

  29. Daduwal has no sikhi interest left in him as he is in bed with radhaswami sect. He was again in their gurinder's dera few days ago. He should be stripped off from representing Sikhs in India. As sant ji said in one of his speeches, " do not raise your hand and join our movement if you are the follower of Radha swami and other pakhandi babay".

  31. Please treat this teeka with respect and do show gratitude towards it. Its very valuable gem should not be taken for granted. It's been said - bhramgyani baba thakur singh ji used to give this teeka along with panj granthi steek to only those who would pass santhiaya/gurbani ucharan and basic sikhi spiritual exam.
