  1. @GuestSingh Care to explain why you posted my private info on this site and have been trolling my posts this whole time? Why not meet in discourse as invited? I do not believe your behavior is befitting a Sikh, let alone a Khalsa.

  5. Good, it shouldn't have been dealt in courts to begin with. Singhs who are taking Panj pyares role should've been involved in this whole fiasco, this is where leadership is failing squarely. In fact no youths should've been involved in the protest during interfaith marriage as its broader panthic issue where leaders need to be get involved work out solution case by case basis. There are so many scenarios where youths are protesting and blocking failing to provide any kind of adequate solution or accommodation and try to enforce it with intimidation- leaving family with no choice to call a

  6. Sant gyani gurbachan singh bhindranwale points out five khands being are state of mind, fifth -sachkhand being turiya avastha and turiyatith avastha. Now turiya avastha/turiya atith avastha are NOT a new term-exclusive to sikhs only, its ancient term which explains liberated being state of mind which is mentioned/realized by ancient indic religions/literature/scriptures and saints. Just google turiya you will know what i mean. Satguru also is not a new term, also new definition cannot be limited to sargun saroop of sri guru granth sahib ji as vaho vaho bani nirank

  7. You need Amrit to get Mukhti bro, there are plenty of Sakhis that prove that. Even in higher up realms, it takes a large amount of Spiritual Power and Kamai to be born human, let alone be born into a Sikhi family. Even Devtas come into Sikh families to get Amrit and gain Mukhti.

  9. Yes, it can be, because in Sikhism, the self is a part of God. Therefore reflection on one's self is meditation on God. This concept is called Aatam Raam, God within Self: ਆਤਮ ਮਹਿ ਰਾਮੁ ਰਾਮ ਮਹਿ ਆਤਮੁ ਚੀਨਸਿ ਗੁਰ ਬੀਚਾਰਾ ॥ Aatham Mehi Raam Raam Mehi Aatham Cheenas Gur Beechaaraa || The Lord is in the soul, and the soul is in the Lord. This is realized through the Guru's Teachings. ਭੈਰਉ (ਮਃ ੧) ਅਸਟ. (੧) ੧:੧ - ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੧੧੫੩ ਪੰ. ੮ Raag Bhaira-o Guru Nanak Dev ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਮਨੁ ਸਮਝਾਈਐ ਆਤਮ ਰਾਮੁ ਬੀਚਾਰਿ ॥੨॥ Guramukh Man Samajhaaeeai Aatham Raam Beechaar |

  10. Yes off course, self reflection -vichar and meditation/simran-remembrance of truth/gyan/shabad goes hand in hand. For eg- Thaal Vich Tin Vastu Paio Sat Santokh Vichaaro Amrit Nam Thakur Ka Paio Jis Ka Sabas Adhaaro || Also look at the thread below: http://www.sikhawareness.com/topic/16369-akaal-ustat-beautiful-questions-riddles/

  11. The Malwa region of Punjab was blessed by Guru Gobind Singh. The following all originated from Malwa and spread Sikhi in the region:- 1) Rara Sahib 2) Nanaksar 3) Reru Sahib 4) Bhindran Jatha (Damdami Taksal) 5) Mastuana 6) Bhai Randhir Singh (Akhand Kirtani Jatha).

  12. that might be the case in the old days but todays Sikh/Punjabi want the finest things in life and there gardens are no exceptions, they are well maintained. I think the next step for us Punjabi's would be to invest /buy into the UK farmland. farming/ agriculture is in our blood.

  13. Bachittar Natak has said who is Satguru and we say their names everyday in the Khalsa Panth ardas(Sri Guru Nanak dev ji to Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji). Only satguru can grant mukhti and they have been disclosed to the world by Vaheguru. Also anyone following satguru teachings would run to take amrit. The Gursikhs love the satguru's hukam. Anyone in the past who has received mukhti as received it by Satguru. Gurbani clearly says this. To the people learning. Start reading from Raag Nat Naaraayan and keep reading. A lot is revealed on this topic by satguru. I am currently reading R

  15. Yup, and any person claiming to do sehaj paath would have came across the Gurbani Shabads that clearly state this. These Shabads also tell the person listening, follow the hukam of Vaheguru and be content with it. Vaheguru hukam is to take Amrit from the Punj Pyare. Yet a person who is doing sehaj paath finds this hukam to be sour. Too bad his reading is only in pride. As satguru says, he makes the deserved souls understand and others are lead away by Vaheguru deeper into Maya. Its not in our ability to make these guys understand. All we can do is point to the source.

  16. Maybe go back and learn the concept of Sargun, Nirgun and how it interlinks with the Shabad. The fact that you don't seem to even know who or what Guru Nanak Dev Ji was is a sign of just how daft your attempts to seem reasonable are.

  17. The Amrit required, that I've read about so far doing sehajpaath, is the Amrit of the Naam. Total devotion, love and sacrifice to the One. Being absorbed into the light of the One. Humanity has been on earth a long time, Gurbani speaks of many many worlds and ages. All these beings have to be born a male sikh or they're out of luck?

  18. There's wisdom in every religion, all the prophets who came before Satguru Nanak Dev Ji can take their followers far...but not to Sach Khand. Only with the help of a Satguru can one reach God, and the only Satguru around (ever) has been th Shabad Guru in the form of Guru Granth Sahib Ji now.

  21. If they did lie to avoid legal ramifications I agree it is shameful behaviour. If you claim to be Sikh and were part of the protest then have the strength of character and conviction to stand by your views and beliefs. Did Singh's in the past who took part in various protests and deliberately court arrest, them tell lies to escape ramifications?? The whole episode was wholly avoidable, the flagrant disregard for Sikh rehit Maryada in the interest of making money by the notorious committee of this Gurdwara was the sole cause of this embarrassment. It backfired massively, the committee tho

  22. Jatt are farmers. Lubana are merchant class. Usually lubanas are well educated and rich because trading was a good business. Lubanas even traded via ships as can be seen from the sakhi of bhai lakhan shah lubana during Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahibs time. I would tell ur parents that caste shouldnt matter in sikhi. That he is from a good sikh family and is well educated. Also that they have the same language and culture mostly. Also tell them most jatts are drug addicts these days and not highly educated. There is no guarantee that anyone jatt thry choose will be a good person. These days

  23. The Silent Retreat Four monks decided to meditate silently without speaking for two weeks. They began with enthusiasm and no one said a word the whole day. By nightfall of the first day, the candle began to flicker and then went out. The first monk blurted out, "Oh, no! The candle is out." The second monk said, "Hey! We are not supposed to speak!" The third monk said in an irritated voice, "What is this? Why did you two break the silence?" The fourth monk smiled and said, "Wow! I'm the only one who hasn't spoken." ~ Reflections: Each monk broke the silen

  25. How do we know they lied? They said they were protesting the use of funds, maybe they were...even if they were protesting the use of funds for a marriage. The criminal penalty was steep. You really want them to go to prison for a long long time? I hear people saying the sangat needs more sacrifice, maybe it does, but are those calling for it willing to do it themselves? Maybe if they'd been charged with disturbing the peace they could just plead guilty , but they were up on serious charges totally misrepresented by police and media.

  29. Well usually in British courts a ghutka is used.. To be fair even if they didn't take a oath on anything the fact that the just outright lied is bad enough.. Why couldn't they just tell the truth and face the music.. If they had conviction in what they believe Calling someone shameful and someone a apostate are totally different things.. I love how your relativism helps you justify their actions.. I guess you think its OK to just lie MOD note- Please contain your replies to one post, it isn't hard.

  30. Don’t be getting emotional because of valentines day and all that. Maybe it was a blessing in disguise that he left. You shouldn’t love him, as he obviously does not love you. It needs some time to recover and it will. Then you will see what a fool he made of you and don’t be taken advantage of again. Make your mind and soul strong, so nobody can hurt you again. You haven’t lost your heart or soul, they’re still there. But they’ve been hurt and you need to work on loving yourself, instead of somebody else. You are worth way more than anybody else belittling you, so respect you

  31. goodluck finding a sikh area in the uk... the old strongholds of handsworth, smethwick, southall, hounslow, slough etc all been taken over by suleh, kosovans, romanians, kurds etc a lot of apneh have moved out of these areas and into more nicer areas... e.g. handsworth to handsworth wood, to great barr/park hall and now on to sutton coldfield. This trend is similar in places like west london where the old southall lot moved to nicer areas.

  32. Well, your first mistake was having a boyfriend. But I can't really blame you for that, because probably no one at the Gurdwara every told you not to date. The "bhais" just do kirtan, they don't tell young people what they're supposed to do to live a happy Sikh life in the West. Anyway, it's not a bad thing that you discovered the truth. You should be happy that God showed you the reality, not sad. Don't think about death, God gave new a new lease on life. In the future, you should not date. You should ask your relatives to find a good man for you to marry. This is th

  37. Clever wording! You mean they lies under oath as Sikhs I'm guessing on a ghutka.. And here was me thinking in sikhi we had a tradition of standing up for our beliefs and not denying them.. They should be ashamed of themselves they couldn't face the consequences of their actions which if they did it for their beliefs should have been easy. Their sikhi was so cheap they lied to get off what was probably only ever going to be a small fine. If these guys aren't the guardians of sikhi they are the problem.. On top of which they made false allegations against the gurdwara C
