    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bP_iG9_BOy1bf54DteXOK_Tn4g4qDbtO/view?usp=drivesdk This is handwritten das granthi Larrivar. It has some differences then modern das granthi path. The one I noticed right off the bat was that Jaap Sahib didn't Start off with Sree Vahguru ji ki fateh like it does in most gutka sahibs. It starts like this Ik oangkar sath gurparsad . Jap . Sree Mukhvakh Patshahi Dasvee . Chaba Chand . Tva Parsad There is no Sree Vhaguru Ji Ki Fateh.

    Loving your Path doesn't mean you have to hate the Khel it's painted in. That person too walks according to Hukam and has a beautiful ending someday. But of course you're repulsed by the Kaljug behavior you see from where you stand because it's disgusting. Just be thankful you are blessed enough to be repulsed instead of enticed.

    One person can not follow two or more religions at the same time. By following religion I mean that you do your nitnem everyday. and try to follow the panthic rehat maryada. If you really know all these religions than you know for a fact that you can't follow all of them at the same time. You can't have one foot in one boat and other foot in another boat. An amritdhari cant be worshiping idol like in Hinduism and Christianity. That is what he meant by hodge podge. the kids are usually confused and can't really commit to one religion. it does happen but its every rare when both parents accept one religion. I have seen it happen but rare.

    Its hard being a bystander to someone else'stragedy. Theres no right thing to do or say or to help. You dont want to pry or bring up sad kemories and make them cry. You also cant crack a joke or talk about the weather, its callous. Being silent is awkward. Like at a funeral, what can you say? So civilized ppl are smart, they came up with ritualistic words that can ease the awkwardness and keep things moving along. I think its great. If someone is sick. I can say i hope you feel better and you can move away. If someones relatives died you can say Im so sorry to hear about your grandma. If you meet someone, Hello Nice to meet you. For a mildly autistic or atleast socially impaired person, these phrases r a god send. They let me know the right thing to say and express with my facial expression as well. It really makes socializing easier, i have a blueprint for every occurence. And then i can ask them what i need and go on my way. Without endlessly agonising how do i approach a grieving person, will asking them for a favor now be callous etc

    Standing up and for ur comrades in arms is also a good quality, that turns to peer pressure and cowardiceness. But its not only police who are guilty of it. Moh attacks everyone. People will lie to protect their family, their cult, their religion and their brothers in arms. In fact, thats what happened in panjab during kharkoo (militant) times. If you read Khalistan by cynthia mehmoud, that was the only crime she could find done by sikh seperatists. That one sikh would take bombs into crowded marketplaces to kill hindus, and none of the members of his team condemned him. She asked them if it was wrong to kill innocents, they said yes. But they wouldn't comdemn him. They said he is one of ours, a brother. Panjabi Sikh people will be the last to support any ideological movement. Because they have suffered from ideology alot. First in 1947, they were promised a better nation, just for sikhs. And how many innocent sikhs got butchered? Then in 1984 to 1995, while the kharkhoos and rebels enjoyed glorius shaheedis, it was the common folk who suffered dehydration, curfews, torture, army rule, becoming orphans and a loss of economy. Most sikhs at heart are secularist and scared stiff of religious ideologues who can ignite another doomed revolution and entice their children to early death. That is why most sikh people judge movements by their effect on the common people not their ideology. It doesnt matter what equalities are promised,.what wrongs will be righted, look at the actions. So to sikhs, BLM is terrible. It comes for their businesses and livelihood. And one cant even try to defend against the looters: https://anncoulter.com/2020/09/23/innocent-until-proven-trump-supporterxxxx/ Thats the general panjabi thought about BLM. Heres mine: i support Black Lives Matter Too. That was the original name by the founders. I think it makes a lot more sense. Also im after the truth, but between the nbc and cbc whitewashing and fox news fearmongering, its hard to know whats true. I dont want to be lead by the mainstream media which is supporting ppl like biden, using all this unrest to paint trump bad. Its been wrong about the russian fraud, to trump impeachement to so many things. They have been calling the protest peaceful. Big games are afoot and i dont want to be a pawn. First the media was like social distancing. Shut down gurudware and churches. Then they allow and encourage ppl to attend these huge protests.which even though they included looting and burning were called peaceful. They wont condemn anything, even though many videos show black people angry cuz their kids got shot and killed, their businesses looted. One one sided narrative is being pushed and of anyone even criticizes a little bit they are canceled with shouts of racism. So while i support BLMT, i wont let that turn me into a passive bystander. Its not only the end that matters, its also the means to get there. Anyone can commit crimes under a movement, so be vigilant. A protest can easily be turned into a mob. And a mob is dangerous especially if it inevitably goes to loot rich places. As sikhs are rich, and have businesses and big houses, they can be a target. As the koreans were in LA riots. Nobody supported the koreans. The media and artists celebrated the rioters. But the koreans who had to defend their homes and stores with guns were all alone during the riots and the damages too. Also the rodney king riots, did they solve anything? Will these protests? In the beginning BLM was smart. They knew doing peaceful protests werent gonna do anything. Ppl and governmwnts only pay attention when property is involved. So they were smart, they tartgeted police departments, governemnt buildings.and even big stores were ok. And in war and big movements sometimes bystanders get hurt. I mean it was the sikhs tweeting 17 better 10,000 in support of rajoana. That the 17 bystanders killed in suicide bombing by rajoana was good because the guy who was killed wouldve killed many more sikhs. So i understand if some innocents get killed or some sikh businesses looted. What i dont like about BLM is thats its becoming cult like. The media wont report anything true about riots vs peaceful protests or anything negative, and if anyone is critical they are canceled. These are not just fox news talking points i have noticed it. Shutting down disagreements, hiding the truth is leading to propaganda and authoritarianism. That is more worrisome than racism.

    You are even more brainwashed, you are completely colonised with marxist thought. You don't even see it. This marxist infiltration is so ingrained that you think you have freed yourself but you haven't, you are even more enslaved. This indoctrination will only get yourself into a bigger rabbit hole.

    I remember eating parshada at a sarbloh bibeki singhs house. The daal was very plain and there was really no turka, no mirch and not that much salt. Even though it was unique to me, it tasted so good! He was reciting bani while making it and the funny thing is when i went home after eating his parshada I was really in the mood to do simran. So I did some after sodar and read more bani than usual. Another sarblohi told me that mirch, gatta etc raises tamo gun.

    I don't think it is just that. A lot of academics have a sort of secular western mindset too. A lot of them have taken the Singh Sabha ideas and have gone to extremes with them. When I was younger, there seemed to be little understanding of puratan Sikh ithihaasic texts (like those we are looking at in this thread), which were all pretty much branded as 'Hindu accretions' because the writers referenced commonly accepted Indic concepts and such in their narratives. I think colonialism sort of created a dual-abrahamic mindset amongst many educated apnay, and they went to extreme lengths to separate Sikhi from Hindu matt, even going to the extreme of vilifying their own historical texts because they couldn't grasp the contexts with the duality mindsets. It's really good to see a generation who can study and analyse their own historical texts without the paranoia the olders did.

    It's obvious. Dasmesh padshah was slowly (and not so slowly) encouraging a weapons culture amongst Sikhs for the inevitable dharamyudh and self preservation of the panth. There are umpteen manifestations of Guru ji's endeavours along these lines, and this is one of them. It's very similar to Guru ji transforming Holi into Hola Mahalla (weapons and horse training). Or Vasakhi being transformed from a peasant harvest festival, to the birth of the Khalsa with all it's symbology (i.e. steel/strength, casteless unity, sacrifice, commitment, bravery etc. etc.)

    Pen Jee, hatred is negative, so do not let negativity enter within you, rather feel pity for them and pray unto Him to bless them and bring them on the path of righteousness. Let us be positive and spread the waves of positive forceful thoughts from within, this brings peace into us, and makes us receptive to His grace. And for those who prefer to remain donkeys inspite of one´s good wishes or intentions, do not worry yourself, due to their hankar and petiness, they will have to learn by the hard ways of Mother Nature.

    It's a significant yet unacknowledged problem that most powerful individuals (the highest tiers of power) are only allowed to occupy certain positions if they have certain vices that can be used as leverage against them so that they follow orders (or else) in this sham of a democratic society. Anyone who can't be threatened or blackmailed into following the script will obviously form decisions based on morals and ethics that will hopefully work in favour of contributing to a better world. These types of people are purposefully barred from such influential positions because they can't be bought. But the opposite brand of people who are deliberately allowed to rise in the ranks, are some of the lowest lifeforms in existence (barring their well-heeled backgrounds and external appearances), and you will see a world that is degraded and heading for total darkness. From a dharmic perspective such a society will eventually destroy itself, because it doesn't work in favour of allowing mankind to flourish in all the ways a human requires to exist in a state of physical and spiritual equilibrium. So, yes, the above couple of posts highlighting the true issue at play are definitely valid. But that doesn't excuse the opportunistic "lesser" parties that indulge in their own demonic plays. The only difference between the two is that the latter isn't afforded institutional protection for their crimes, because the long game is to cause an eventual outburst of seething rage and retribution decades in the making. These Muslim gangs are basically sentencing their own future generations to a grisly end, because I can guarantee you that eventually there will come a tipping point where a line will be drawn and action will be taken by the average man. A foreign band cannot prey on the daughters of the native inhabitants, and assume there will be no response. The problem is this: the target of this rage should be equally directed towards the policy-makers (traitors) and the puppet-masters. But the shadowy hand that pulls the strings will always keep the spotlight away from its own involvement in matters. If true, enlightened change is to come, the enemy of mankind must feel that wrath for the first time. If not, it's just cutting leaves while the roots continue untouched.

    This is a good idea. Ive thought of something similar. Sangat is divided by area and jatha/affiliations. So the akj in toronto get 5 representatives as do taksalis, nihangs, nanksariye, missionary, and 1 miscellaneous in toronto. And akj, taksali etc in BC will have their own 5 representatives. So to make decisions for toronto, each group will choose 1 of their panj(the jathedaar) to make the city wide panj. As they will be from different jathas, but each jatha has representation, what ever they decide applies to every jatha. And then the state or province panj will be made when the ecity panj each choose one from within them to be jathedaar and represent them in state council. The fact that the different sects have to choose someone they all agree will represent them will hopefully make them chose the best character, honest, kamaii wale persons. And every jatha will sent their best as they would want their representative to be chosen as the jathedaar. Similarily nationally, all the states have to choose the best 5 to send to national council. And the national council will choose the best 5 to send to the international council. I dont know if that makes sense

    I completed grade 9 in punjab. I was there a year and I learned it. Reading and writing Gurmukhi is actually easy Its not a hard language. But understanding Gurbani was difficult for me. I use to read the translations but now I'm learning from basics of sikhi channel on YouTube. I also brushed up on my Gurmukhi from the basics of sikhi channel as well. I recommend anyone who wants to learn check then out on YouTube

Under the control of the SGPC, this practice of Dasshera was stopped. However it still takes place at Hazur Sahib and the Akali Nihang Singh Khalsa. In a dispute about the leadership of Buddha Dal the Sikh mystic Akali Baba Mitt Singh said that who ever ensured this tradition with Shastar Puja,would remain intact, should be the rightful leader, to which Baba Kaladhari agreed. According to Uday Singh, in the foreward to Dusshera Mahatan Granth Sahib, he states that the worship of weapons was an ancient practice of the Devas and when the Guru formalised Shakti into the tradition of Bhakti, the worship of weapons was important to the Khalsa. Due to the Khalsa being a Raj Yogi, and needing to prepare the mind and spirit for battle. According to him this was stopped in the Akal Takht Sahib by the new commitee after 1919. At Hazur Sahib, Baba Mitt Singh ji had this Granth written by Bhai Ram Singh and Sewa Singh. it was first printed in the 1940s. The path is Akhand for nine days with the bhog on the tenth with these following bani's repeated: Jap Sahib, Akal Ustat, Bachitra Natak, Chandi Charitra Ukhati Bilas, Chandi Charitra, Chandi di //, Gian Prabodh, Chaubis Avatar, Ram Avatar, Krishnaavatar, Nihkalanki Avatar, Paras nath, Shabad Hazare, Svaiye, Khalsa Mahima, Shastra Nam Mala, Charitropakhyan first invocation, on the last day.

    Empires are not brought down by external threats, but internal weaknesses. Before we begin some holy crusade against the missionaries (Christian missionaries in this case lol), let's stop and think for a second. Why are they able to target these Sikhs? And what have we (sangat, leaders) done to help them? Our people do nothing to help our brothers and sisters who have a hard life, and yet have the gaul to complain when others come along, help them and convert them to their religion! We first gotta get our house in order. And once we do, these type of missionaries will be easily handled.

    My views , shoukd nobody feels agitated, Gurbani says " Rang sabhey narainey jetey man bhavann ." ( ang 134- 3, Baramaha Manjh M5) Nature and colors are all made by Waheguru, parmeshar himself , how come One is bad and other good. Because green was the color of moghul army flag , the use in khalsa dal was taboo to avoid misundestanding during battles, and for the same reason red was banned as pahadi rajas , who were perpetually at war with guru sahib ji . It was simple logicand practice without religious adsignment for colors. Did not guru sahib had many muslims and hindus on his side?

    Not sure, I can pm you their number. No one is disputing the authority or knowledge of sri guru granth sahib ji. For some, english translations of sri guru granth sahib ji does not cut it anymore they want to further study and there is nothing wrong with studying further only if one desires. If worldly school requires a teacher/tutor to help students understand material in the test books such as math calcus, physical, sql etc then there are no exceptions in sikh spiritual school. Contemplation/meditation and studying scriptures are two very different things. In sikhi, spiritual school of thought orders such as nirmale, taksal encourages both- it goes hand in hand. However, just like everything else you will always find people who idiolizes vidya so much so much they forget all about internal sikhi- meditation, seva, vichar, bibek etc...as such mindset focus is entirely on writing books, try to win theological debates in academia or big smagams/akharas, join scholary culture of sikhi- their study of gurmat end up being road block itself and they get trapped in it..vidya could become road block in sikhi if caution is not used...so nothing wrong with learning vidya, one just need to learn self-reflect/be honest with themselves and use caution, don't get trapped in vidya. Sikhi is double edge sword..!!
