  1. We all know how SGPC works no wonder.... but the "SIKHS" singing and dancing inside Harimander Sahib should have known better...... Our values are eroding really fast........
  2. "Sources said an MLA from Punjab, a dera emissary and a senior intelligence official were present when Sarna provided the information about the breakthrough in the deadlock." "Sarna told The Tribune that the apology letter was signed by the dera and it should not have any problems in being accepted. He revealed that the DSGMC was working behind the scene to persuade the dera chief to see reason." True Colors are showing up now. So much for our leaders.......
  3. I agree.... there were couple of donation events last year and they should be made permanent. S1NGH veer might shed some light on that. Gurughars and individuals like us try to help out such poor people. Please keep this forum updated if anybody sets up a dontation fund for this cause.
  4. This is my take from a katha by bhai pinderpal ji. He was answering question as to why we need to read bani without understanding a single word. He gave two analogies: 1. When a doctor prepares medicine he knows what chemicals will work together to fight disease. The sick person by no means need to know its contents for medicine to work. It will work irrespective someone has in depth knowledge of chemicals or not. similarly bani/gurmantar will work to cleanse our souls of the disease of 5 evils. 2. Similarly we don't have to understand how food is digested in our body so that it can provide us nourishment. We simply have to eat and consume it. Just like food for body, bani is food for our soul and we just need to nourish it. Just like food and medicine take time to effect out body, similarly reading bani and chanting on HIS name will cleanse our soul and finally our inner eyes can open to see The One.
  5. Rubia slips too. FULL-VEIL is thin and it isn't silky. I second that. Full wail is really thin and rubia is thick. I've tried both and now use rubia-wail. full wail is very thin and light while rubia is on heavier side....
  6. No offense veerji, but i could not agree to unlocking car with cell phone so searched for this urban legend on snopes.com. http://www.snopes.com/autos/techno/keyless.asp
  7. Personally i feel that its maya that comes to us and engulfs our soul.... I've seen how newborn infants and 1-2 yr old kids have no attachment to any materialistic things until elders around them start teaching them concept of "Meri - Teri" (mine and yours).... and in no time they are bonded with their toys...... On the concept of Maya being referred as female.... per one of kathas i heard, God created maya which created whole universe... so just like females give birth to newborns, God created universe thru maya..... i'm sure someone would explain it in better way.... just my 2 cents.
  8. That is so true. It took me 3 months to complete listening japji sahib katha.... and the worst part is i forgot most of it... there is only so much I can absorb. But you can listen to his other kathas which are much shorter... "saka chamkaur" is one. He describes it so vividly that you can imagine being there watching everything and feeling it. It is avaialble on ikirtan. The best message that impacted me was his analogy of gursikh with formation of pearl. He said like the shell of pearl we all have our mouths wide open consuming maya and living in our ego. But when bani like distilled drop of water enters, the mouth closes and the shell starts going down and down, deep in the ocean. Similarly gursikh becomes humble. And after years staying deep in ocean under pressure, the water drop becomes precious pearl... Its only by grace of guruji that such humbleness is achieved and we can become true gursikhs..... but it takes time and perseverance.....
  9. If you get chance listen to japji sahib katha by bhai pinderpal ji. He is amazing. Full of humbleness and nimrata.....
  10. I would love to, but it was way back that i heard it. It was probably katha of sukhmani sahib or japji sahib, i dont remember for sure. He describe before anything there was GOD and God alone. And with ray of light maya was created, through which everything else. So in essence God is in everything but most souls stay in maya's loop. only few manage to break away and merge into source.
  11. Veerji first step is acknowledging existence of maya and its influence on our lives. It is only by doing ardas to Almighty that we can standup to maya. I remember hearing a sakhi from giani thakur singhji. He said God created maya and then maya created everything. So most ppl can't see beyond maya, only chosen few have the capacity to see and stand upto it. For mortals like us we need guru's blessing to standup.
  12. No Offense, but how long will Rs 2 Lakh last? with devalued Rupee, 2 lakh Rs is nothing. The loss to shaheed's family is immense. Sikh organisations and Panth should pledge to support his children and family. Lets not add one more martyr in the list of thousands forgotten ones.
  13. Dera leader apologises.......????? I dont see a word of apology... http://www.ndtv.com/convergence/ndtv/story...EWEN20070012509 Randeep Singh Nandal, Vikram Choudhary, Sunetra Ch Friday, May 18, 2007 (Sirsa, Sangrur, Patiala) After a five-day standoff between Sikhs and Dera Sacha Sauda followers in Punjab Dera leader Baba Gurmeet Singh Ram Rahim has apologised to the Sikh community for hurting their sentiments. In a tape released by the Dera Sacha Sauda, Baba Gurmeet said he did not intend to show disrespect to Guru Gobind Singh. ''I had no intention of imitating or being disrespectful to Guru Gobind Singh. I had absolutely no intention of equating myself with Guru Gobind Singh. This is a misunderstanding that is causing a lot of needless harm and it should be cleared,'' he said. There were violent clashes between Sikhs and Dera Sacha Sauda followers after a picture of Dera Sacha Sauda leader Baba Gurmeet Singh Ram Rahim showing him dressed in the attire of Guru Gobind Singh and baptising people appeared in most newspapers on Sunday. There's been tension between the Akal Takth and the Dera Sacha Sauda ever since Dera leaders threw their weight behind the Congress in the recent assembly elections, accusing the Akalis of victimising their leaders. Thousands of Dera followers and Sikhs faced off over the week with clashes in many place. The situation turned increasingly political with the BJP, the coalition partner in Punjab, criticising the Akalis' handling of the situation. Attacks on Dera followers Earlier, the Akal Takth had said there would be no question of accepting an apology from Dera Sacha Sauda. In Sirsa, Haryana, where the Dera is headquartered, about 30,000 men and women gathered to protest the attacks on them by the Sikhs. Meanwhile in Sangrur on Friday thousands gathered to cremate a Sikh protester who was killed in clashes with police and Dera followers in Sonam on Thursday night. Sikhs in Sonam burned two homes of Dera followers in retaliation on Friday. But now, with the Dera leader apologising, there is hope that tempers in Punjab will finally simmer down.
