  1. On 4th November 1970 at St Chads Hospital in Edgbaston UK, Sant Baba Mani Singh Jee graced this earth with his arrival. Today is the 43rd anniversary of his birth. A small glimpse of this divine soul can be seen below............take out 45mins from your busy day to listen to the sermon, I will be surprised if you do not glean something to support you in your Gursikhi journey.
  2. _Singhni_ you cab get veg muffins and cupcakes from Extraordinary Cakes in Birmingham. Take a look at www.vcake.co.uk
  3. At the moment I would say it is for professionals. Mainly because on the Mac the only way of editing or downloading the files is by using professional software or by taking it straight from the camera if using iMovie. You cannot use the MTS (AVCHD) files in any of the 'home user' software apps without spending hours converting it it an MOV or DV file. There are numerous posts on the internet in realtion to this. If you search for MTS - the output file of an AVCHD you should find more than enough info to fill 10 mins
  4. Bhai Gagandip Singh Ji An element of the questions and views being posted may be a result of a lack of transparency and probity required in any public service bodies such as BSSF which you are establishing. What concerns me are the following points: An initial meeting has been held in Woolwich but this was not widely publicised to ensure a diverse and representative attendance There is no transparency as to the 15 individuals who attended Your next meeting does not have the time it will start or the hall it will be in It is not clear as to who is welcome at the meeting below i.e. is it an open invitation What will be the criteria and procedure be or selecting the interim committee? I perceive that a greater degree of transparency will assist in fostering support for this new body.
  5. To clarify as written in the Enlightenment article he received enlightenment at the canal side where he used to go to do his bhagti. This was before he went to the basement at Soho Road. Prior to going to Soho Road he would do a lot of seva at Smethwick Gurdwara and Nankasar Gurdwara, Waterloo Road including washing and drying the kasherae of the sevadaar at Nanaksar. He also did a lot of seva at the Gurdwara which was built at the Shera Punjab Factory. Following enlightenment he would secretly do seva in particular jura di seva. Even up until his departure he would do some form of seva of sangat in secret.
  6. To respond to Moorak. I have not stated that Sant Mani Singh was the same joyt as Sant Mani Singh Dyalpur vale who gave enlightenment to Sant Puran Singh Ji. This was said by another poster. I have chose not to enter this debate since Baba Ji always said who cares what my previous life was since it is this life that matters. What I have said is: - Bhai Nurung Singh bought Sant Mani Singh to GNNSJ - He built a pora for him to mediate in, in Dec 1990 - Bhai Nurung Singh changed his name from Resham Singh to Mani Singh based on the chamak from his forehead, Baba Ji has written a fully detailed article surrounding this event which will be shared over time - There are videos and pictures of Sant Mani Singh being brought into the sangat at GNNSJ by Bhai Nurung Singh in 1991 - Bhai Mohinder Singh drove Sant Mani Singh to the airport in 1992 when he went to India, at that point Bhai Sahib gave him the jacket he was wearing since Sant Mani Singh was feeling cold. Baba Ji kept this jacket safely to this day. I have met Bhai Sahib numerous times with and without Sant Mani Singh. The last time was last Monday when along with the US Singhs we met him to inform him about the funeral. When he stated that he would check his diary and try to attend. Therefore to say that there is no connection between Sant Mani Singh and GNNSJ is false. Finally thank you to all he attended yesterday and helped out. Pictures and videos will be out shortly.
  7. The full programme for tomorrow is as follows: 6am Darshan begin at 15 Silverton Road Smethwick, B67 7PH 9am Depart for crematorium 9.30am Meet sangat at Forge Mill Lake 10am Arrive at crematorium 11am Langar in tents at Forge Mill Lake 1.30pm Ardas at the asthan
  8. Yes this was indeed a very unique soul. The vichaar that he did was very deep indeed and his commitment was to bring back Tat Gurmat into Sikhi and ensure that Gursikh were rehat behayt tyar be tyar. In the last year the one thing he kept speaking of was to hold an amrit sanchar which followed full maryada. He wanted the Singhs to have a very high jevaan so that the ablakhis all experienced something amazing when they were given the amrit. However he never got around to arranging it, mainly because he felt that none of the Singhs in the sangat had reached the avsta required to be part of the Panj nor had they extended thier nitnem significantly. There were some Singhs who were close and he and said what he expected of them before he would agree to an amrit sanchar happening. Those who met him, from which ever jathabandi all left learning more about thier own jathebandi and about gursikhi. He never once tried to break anyone away from the jatha they were with since he always said that when you re-plant a plant it does not always stay green. Therefore it was better if everyone knew the asool of the jatha there were in and the tenets of Gursikhi. That would ensure that all the jathey continued to stay in chardikala and the Gursikh would become tat Gursikh.
  9. Darshan will be at 15 Silverton Road, Smethwick from 6am. The tents are a waiting area for the sangat plus for langar afterwards. The plan is that the sangat will walk behind the coffin from the tents to the crematorium thereby reducing the risk of congestion with cars etc.
  10. Yes it is. He was very proud of the fact that he was born in the UK, hence why his funeral is to occur here. He always said that the British flag should be placed on his body when the time came. What I did not know though was that 15 years ago he gave the flag to a family in the US. He asked them to keep it safe since it will be required one day. There has been a slight change in the programme though due to the number of people being expected. The police have asked that that the sangat does not block the roads. Therefore darshan will begin at 6am and a tent is to be provided near to the crematorium at forge lake for sangta to wait. Coaches will be provided to take people to forge lake. After the crematorium langar will be served at forge lake as well and coaches will bring people back to Smethwick. As requested by another postee there is a need for sevadaar as follows: - directing people to their cars or the coaches after they have had darshan so that they can make their way to forge lake - people at the lake helping with the sangat - people at the crem ensuring there is no inappropriate parking so that the hearse can get in
  11. Baba Ji's Deah will be arriving at the asthan - 15 Silverton Road, Smethwick B67 7PH - at 6.30am, from where it will depart at 9am to go to West Bromwich Crematorium.
  12. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Being busy with the funeral arrangements etc unfortunately I can't share much about Baba Ji's jevaan with you yet. But to reassure you there will significant pieces of literature coming out over the next year which he wrote himself. THe piecies on enlightenment, love and God were handwritten by him and the ones above are ectracts of the orginals which had numerous references to Gurbani. As to his depature it was as he said it would be. Since I first met him in 1996 he always said I wil be leaving this earth before I am 40. He also said more recently I will have had a shower before I depart and there will be no need to wash the body, again jsut what occoured. He had a shower at amritvele lay down on his back with two pillows under his head, put a white sheet upto his chest and had a mala in his hand. The signficant points here are that usually he would always sleep on his side, and not have any pillows under his head. Those of you fortunate enough to attend the funeral will be able to have darshan and that alone will answer numerous questions. He kept himself very Gupt but he has left a kajana of knowledge which the Amercian and UK sevadaar will be pulling together to present to the sangant over time.
  13. The first Sant to be born in the UK left this earth to merge with the one creator on 13th August 2008 in California, USA. Sant Mani Singh's body has been flown back to England for his funeral, which is to be held on Saturday 30th August 2008 at Akal Bunga, 15 Silverton Road, Smethwick. The Sikh Congregation will have the opportunity to pay their last respects from 6.30am before the congregation depart for West Bromwich Crematorium at 9am. Sant Mani Singh was named Resham Singh at birth at St Chads Hospital Birmingham on 4th November 1970 at approximately 1am. He was raised and bred in Smethwick, West Midlands until he graduated from Secondary High School. Between his childhood and teenage years he remained unattached from materialistic objects just as a lotus blossom remains untouched by the water. He was to join the British Royal Marines, but had no idea what royalty awaited his existence. Whilst throwing away the career of the Royal Marines and serving the country, he instead decided to serve the whole of humanity. Following enlightenment Sant Mani Singh stayed in deep meditation from 25th December 1990 to 13th April 1991 at the invitation of Guru Nanak Nishkam Sevak Jatha, Soho Road, Handsworth. In absolute deep meditation, he was drunk with the divine. During this period no thirst or hunger disturbed him, a great ecstasy took over him. A question was asked at the time, what was the significance of this mediation? He smiled and said "I must have lost my consciousness, so drunk, so drowned. I must have been so drunk in the beatitude of realization that I must have forgot the wide world." On 15th April 1991 he came into the congregation at Guru Nanak Nishkam Sevak Jatha when Bhai Sahib Bhai Nurung Singh stated "you are a mirror that reflects so marvelously and as such your name should be Mani Singh rather than Resham Singh." Sant Mani Singh spent the last ten years researching into the Sikh Scriptures with the desire to write the Sikh Scriptures using twenty four carat gold, which would be placed on the throne at Sri Harimandhar Sahib. Due to the complexity and intricacy of this task it was only this year that the technique for producing the scriptures was perfected. The first four Ang (pages) where shown to the congregated two months ago and the methodology to complete the project was described to their close associates. With the blessings of the Almighty this project will continue to fruition to produce the first ever Sikh Scriptures in gold. When a Mahapurkh (enlightened soul) leaves the earth he always leaves something behind. Sant Mani Singh has left behind for us all the methodology of how to serve our living Guru, Guru Granth Sahib Ji. This is a unique gift for the Sikh Panth and should be treasured.
