  1. When Ram Rai, the eldest son of Mata Krishen Kaur and Guru Har Rai Ji, changed a word of a Gurbani tukh to appease (the usurper of the Mughal Raj) Arungzeb, Guru Har Rai Ji excommunicated him from Sikhi. Baba Ram Rai was Guru Sahib’s own son yet he had disrespected Gurbani which is considered the highest form of direspect in the Sikh Faith. Baani Guru, Guru Hai Baani. BUT we forget one important thing, Baba Ram Rai was punished so severely because he KNOWINGLY did the wrong thing. Being Guru Sahib’s son he was well aware of the crime he was committing and therefore it was a choice.

  2. While no doubt Muslim Punjabis are the majority of Punjabis. They have been blessed with their own Raaj or sovereign state that is on the world map. They dominate Pakistan. They are in ideal position to promote the Punjabi language. Unfortunately, that is not what we have seen so far. Urdu not Punjabi has been made the official language of Punjabi dominated Pakistan. An educated Punjabi Muslim prefers to speak Urdu because he will consider Punjabi as an uneducated language. I've seen many Punjabi Muslims who speak Urdu with their children. Furthermore, Punjabi Muslims consider Urdu as an Islam

  3. Bhai Gurbaksh Singh Khalsa has been on Hunger Strike for 30 days now to get innocent Sikhs released from the Indian Jails (most of these Sikhs have served close to or more than 20 years in jails). However, we are not seeing much support in Punjab or the West. Last time when he went on his hunger strike, the British Sikhs showed their support by going on hunger strike too. I am getting more and more convinced that Sikhs have lost their pride (ankh) they will rather talk about some Christmas tree than Sikh issues which have real impact on Sikhs!

I had everything but still wanted more screaming, crying my heart was sore I'd explain but nobody could understand just get back to normal they'd demand my friends told me its just a faze it'll go away but to me it felt as if it had full plans to stay the problem to me was unknown maybe my anxiety had over grown I took on all the advice id made notes and sometimes even ask twice days, weeks ,months went by all my strengths were gone, I couldn't even cry go home and rest my teacher would say i'd leave the classroom hoping id get

  6. unfortunately it has become a current trend to bait SIkhs by bad-mouthing Mahapurakhs such as Sant Isher SIngh Rara Sahib wale , Sant ji, and others . One can look at whether the Mahapurakh spoken of brought people to sikhi or to some perversion of Guru ji's message , whether they direct to Guru's charan or their own ... after all all the sakhian show one should not test such a Purakh but there are nishaani that gurbani shows us , that the true nature of a person of high avasta will have.Ultimately we should improve our avasta so we will know what that avasta is.

  9. thank you i like this saaki too .... Bhai Suman Ji and Bhai Moosan Ji were a father and son who were beloved Gursikhs of Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaj. Although these two Gursikhs were very poor materialistically they were very rich spiritually. On one occasion they had travelled to be blessed with Guru Ji's darshan. After arriving in Guru Ji's darbar and kissing Maharaj's charankamal they did a benti to Guru Sahib to bless their village with his holy presence. Maharaj smiled at his two beloved Sikhs and accepted their request. In the presence of his Sangat Maharaj told a

  11. If you're taking the train from London, the station the train stops at 'Gare Du Nord' is not too far from te place you find the Sikh community and Gurdwara (between Gare Du Nord and Le Chappelle). Bearing in mind the French legacy in parts of south India (pondicherry) and Mauritus and the Seychelles etc, that area has always been home to Paris' fairly large Indian community since the 1960's (99.9% south Indian), but the Punjabis that arrived in the last decade or so also settled there (in very small numbers). Other than that, you'll meet Punjabis under the Eifel Tower (illegaly selling small s

  13. When Guru Arjun Dev Ji, the 5th Guru was bringing Aad Granth (half of Guru Granth Sahib organized into a saroop) to Amritsar, Baba Buddha ji carried Aad Granth on his head while Guru Arjun Dev Ji did chaur seva (waving of peacock feathers). This shocked the sangat that was walking alongside Guru Sahib because chaur seva was something that was only done to the Guru or to Kings and yet here was the Guru doing chaur seva to what appeared to be a book! Then when they ended the daily events at Amritsar, the Sikhs asked Guru Arjun Dev Ji where they should put Aad Granth for the night. Guru Sahib res

  18. You should read more books mate its the strain that somethings getting tough that makes you learn things.. If you only read in English I recommend getting you mind together and hit up some Punjabi its much easier even if you dont knkow it but still both can speak the language of love and if your attuned with love then you sometimes cant tell which language someone just spoke but rather you connect to their soul and what they are saying.. Mad props and my heart goes out to anyone else who posts more Mahapurkhs here. Thank you for the OP for starting such a beautiful thread.

  21. I'm assuming you work in a call centre environment or something similar, as someone who has friends and family that work in similar environments I'll throw in my pennies worth, couple of things: -The fact that the caller had Singh in his name is irrelevant, just because someone has Singh as their middle name doesn't mean that they never shout or use bad language -If this person has made a complaint against you your first port of call should be to HR (or similar) and request a copy of the complaint and a copy of the conversation (if recorded) -Read your work contract, your employer has a dut

  23. The life of Sant Teja Singh Ji His holiness Sant Teja Singh Ji was born at Pohir, district Ludhiana, on 17 Jan. 1927 into the household of Sardar Ram Singh and Mata Sant Kaur. He completed his primary education from the village school. He learnt (to recite) the Gurbani and its recital (Kirtan) under the tutelage of Ghani Gyan Singh of Gurdwara Sahib, Mandi Ahmedgarh. After spending the early years of his youth in Calcutta, Syalkot and Mussouri, he returned to Pohir. As a child he used to accompany the village congregation to Rara Sahib. But in 1948 he finally resolved to se

  24. whether a person is from Uttarkhand, France, China or Bhar ultimately they will want to learn Gurmukhi to be able to read Gurbani in the original ... I don't deny people need to know Jagat Guru dhan dhan Guru Granth Sahib ji and the temporary phase of needing translations until they can understand Gurmukhi is understandable and should be catered for , but you really are not coming across as friendly, open or really wanting to learn just ready to attack those who would like to read in Guru's letters . Hope you get some peace someday soon

  26. I would also like to promote Gurmukhi script as it is being marginalised and is our Guru ji gift to us ...is it so bad to want that ??? P.s. you assume a lot about me and Christmas I said I have a tree didn't say I use it , didn't say I go to mass, sing carols, or anything ...I just said it existed in the loft because it was a demand by my in-laws for their photo shoots with grandkids ... nothing more, nothing less.

  29. I agree the ONLY way news is getting out is via social media because Indian press is bought up by Panth Dokhis...need click and share as quick as possible even spreading back to people in India as they are unaware of the interference and trust what they read and hear from Indian press. Veer ji I am confused about Baljit Singh is he or isn't he trustworthy , he seems to have Radha Soamis ear , and comes and goes out of jail seemingly unscathed when most our brothers come out injured or worse.?
