  1. TheAnswered: Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! You may want to start by reading Sri Guru Granth Sahib to gain some understanding of the spiritual side of Sikhi: http://www.sikhs.org...lish/frame.html If you can tell us which city you live, the Sangat here may be able to direct you to a Gursikh who will be able to answer any questions you have in person. It is also helpful to have Sikh friends to support you on your new Path and to encourage you on your journey. Please do not feel that you will be betraying them if you decide to stick with Islam for now, because Sikhs are always happy to befriend a spiritual seeker regardless of creed, colour of skin or nationality. As Only Five has said, Sikhi teaches that a follower of any religion who has love in his heart for God and a deep desire to meet his Creator can achieve union with Him. If you feel that it may be too difficult for you at this time to make some sort of commitment towards becoming a Sikh, start reading the writings of Sufis like Rumi, Hafez, Sheikh Farid (some of whose writings are in Sri Guru Granth Sahib) who follow a more spiritual version of Islam. Also, if you can, try to rise a few hours before dawn, recite the name of God (Whom Sikhs call Waheguru) with love and a firm desire to meet Him, and ask for His guidance and grace. If you are suffering from depression and of need of peace and courage, try listening to Sukhmani Sahib once a day: ਗਉੜੀ ਸੁਖਮਨੀ ਮਃ ੫ ॥ Ga▫oṛī sukẖmanī mėhlā 5. Gauree Sukhmani, Fifth Mehl, ਸਲੋਕੁ ॥ Salok. Shalok: ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ Ik▫oaʼnkār saṯgur parsāḏ. One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru: ਆਦਿ ਗੁਰਏ ਨਮਹ ॥ Āḏ gur▫e namah. I bow to the Primal Guru. ਜੁਗਾਦਿ ਗੁਰਏ ਨਮਹ ॥ Jugāḏ gur▫e namah. I bow to the Guru of the ages. ਸਤਿਗੁਰਏ ਨਮਹ ॥ Saṯgur▫e namah. I bow to the True Guru. ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰਦੇਵਏ ਨਮਹ ॥੧॥ Sarī gurḏev▫e namah. ||1|| I bow to the Great, Divine Guru. ||1|| ਅਸਟਪਦੀ ॥ Asatpaḏī. Ashtapadee: ਸਿਮਰਉ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਵਉ ॥ Simra▫o simar simar sukẖ pāva▫o. Meditate, meditate, meditate in remembrance of Him, and find peace. ਕਲਿ ਕਲੇਸ ਤਨ ਮਾਹਿ ਮਿਟਾਵਉ ॥ Kal kales ṯan māhi mitāva▫o. Worry and anguish shall be dispelled from your body. ਸਿਮਰਉ ਜਾਸੁ ਬਿਸੁੰਭਰ ਏਕੈ ॥ Simra▫o jās bisumbẖar ekai. Remember in praise the One who pervades the whole Universe. ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਤ ਅਗਨਤ ਅਨੇਕੈ ॥ Nām japaṯ agnaṯ anekai. His Name is chanted by countless people, in so many ways. ਬੇਦ ਪੁਰਾਨ ਸਿੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਿ ਸੁਧਾਖ੍ਯ੍ਯਰ ॥ Beḏ purān simriṯ suḏẖākẖ▫yar. The Vedas, the Puraanas and the Simritees, the purest of utterances, ਕੀਨੇ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਇਕ ਆਖ੍ਯ੍ਯਰ ॥ Kīne rām nām ik ākẖ▫yar. were created from the One Word of the Name of the Lord. ਕਿਨਕਾ ਏਕ ਜਿਸੁ ਜੀਅ ਬਸਾਵੈ ॥ Kinkā ek jis jī▫a basāvai. That one, in whose soul the One Lord dwells - ਤਾ ਕੀ ਮਹਿਮਾ ਗਨੀ ਨ ਆਵੈ ॥ Ŧā kī mahimā ganī na āvai. the praises of his glory cannot be recounted. ਕਾਂਖੀ ਏਕੈ ਦਰਸ ਤੁਹਾਰੋ ॥ Kāʼnkẖī ekai ḏaras ṯuhāro. Those who yearn only for the blessing of Your Darshan - ਨਾਨਕ ਉਨ ਸੰਗਿ ਮੋਹਿ ਉਧਾਰੋ ॥੧॥ Nānak un sang mohi uḏẖāro. ||1|| Nanak: save me along with them! ||1|| Regards, K.
  2. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! The highest form of meditation is of Nirguna, but not everyone can do that without much effort. That is why Mahapurush will sometimes give premis a practice that involves naam simran with meditation on specific chakras. The idea is that it is easier to associate naam simran with something tangible (like one's breathing). This is as an aid to concentration, a tool and nothing more, because as someone has said previously on this thread, the chakras are impermanent. K.
  3. OP: Most, if not all, of these questions have been answered by Bhai Bijla Singh in his articles here: http://searchsikhism.com/islam.html Indeed, many of those articles were written in response to the propaganda and lies on that Islamic Awareness site. Some good sites for learning about the lies of Muslims are: http://www.jihadwatch.org http://www.faithfreedom.org Regards, K.
  4. Depends which one it is. Usually premature opening of the third eye chakra is associated with intense crippling headaches, visual hallucinations and mental illness. It's unlikely to happen though unless one does intense meditation on this chakra, and even then seeing gods, angels, and communicating telepathically with spiritual beings is not always a sign of madness. If such things happen, one would need to speak to a Mahapurush. K.
  5. It could be any number of reasons from the mundane to the spiritual. If it is as a result of bhakti, then reciting naam while concentrating an inch or so below the navel at the chakra there will relieve such pain and also act to prevent any kind of chakra opening up before one is ready. Also touching the tip of your toungue on the upper palate of your mouth (just behind your upper row of teeth) while you are doing bhakti keeps your prana circulating down your front and back rather than just up the spine and outwards. K.
  6. Sunny Singh Doad: Veer ji, for your own chardi kala, I would suggest that you take santhiya of Dasam Granth from Taksal or any other puratan sampardaya so that you can understand what Dasmesh Pita is saying in Dasam Granth rather than having to rely on the writings of undereducated former mechanics and Gurnindaks for your knowledge. Regards, K.
  7. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Bhai Bijla Singh has already done the great seva of demolishing the arguments of misguided Muslims trying to confuse young Sikhs with their lies, deceit and deception. See his articles here: http://searchsikhism.com/islam.html There is more than enough in them to answer any Muslim on the lookout for easy prey. Regards, K.
  8. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDLlHLfFqSg&feature=related I suppose these Kala Afghana people think Sant Jarnail Singh was one of those misguided dogmatic people they talk about. K.
  9. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! I was present at the debate regarding Dasam Granth on SikhAwareness.com in which this Khalsa Fauj guy referred to Sri Dasam Granth as KK or Kanjar Kavita in Kala-Afghana speak. You can PM Neo Singh, the mod on SA.com, if you require evidence of this. He allowed the discussion but had to moderate Khalsa Fauj's messages because they were full of similar repugnant comments. Regards, K.
  10. It's just some propaganda by some self-declared chamaar who's still hurting because his gooroo was shot down. Whoever the baba is, he's not actually touching anyone involved (except to pat them on the head) he's actually waving his hand about an inch away from the body, presumably in some kind of spiritual cleansing or blessing thing. K.
  11. Go to the doctor and see what's up first and tell us what they say (it could be epilepsy, anaemia, parkinsons or alzheimers, or many other things). You can take a look at supplementing with herbs that boost memory and blood flow to the brain like gingko biloba, ginseng and arginine. For memory, anything that requires a great deal of concentration is good, eg visualising comlex shapes, then visualising them moving, then increasing their complexity by visualising them in 3D. You can do the same with gurbani, memorising any bani of your liking and visualising the words as you say them. Increase the complexity by visualising specific words in specific colours, eg nouns as blue, verbs as red, etc. Edit: I should have said: if the person concerned is relatively young, then the likely cause is probably nutritional deficiencies. Have they suffered a fall or loss recently? When they faint, do they suffer from fits? How old are they? Are they on any medication? Go to your doctor before you do anything else like meditations or supplementing with herbs. You may just end up concealing some serious problem otherwise. K.
  12. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Actually, the guy who came up with this is an agnostic physicist who was ridiculing young-earth creationists trying to pass their insane religious ideology as science, and rightly so. They wanted schools in Kansas to teach the fundamentalist christian belief that, god created the earth around 6 thousand years ago and then put dinosaur remains in the earth to confuse the indfidels, as an alternate "scientific theory" to evolution. These religious loons are descendants of the idiots (again in Kansas) who wanted pi to be "corrected" to 3 as per the bible, not realising that doing so would mean that they'd be driving round cars with hexagonal wheels. Pastafarianism makes as much sense as the literalist interpretation of Christian beliefs, but it's much tastier. K.
  13. Fateh! Does anyone here have Giani Thakur Singh's telephone number in India? Could someone PM me his details to me as a matter of urgency? Thanks, K.
  14. LOL Yes, it's perfectly fine to date a descendant of those who killed your ancestors. In Punjab, during partition, Sikh girls were committing suicide by jumping into wells so that they would not be dishonoured by Muslim rapists. Grow up, learn about your history, and get some self-respect. K.
  15. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Get new friends who aren't judgemental cowards. You did the right thing. When some fool disrespects your dastaar he is doing more than disrespecting you, he is disrespecting Guru-given saroop. Good on you for having the presence of mind and compassion not to kill those chavs where they stood or at least sending them to the nearest hospital on a stretcher. If you had beaten them up because they called you fat/ugly/smelly/whatever, it would be a different thing. But to be honest, I would have patted you on the back for standing up for yourself. Honour and courage among young Sikhs seem to be diminishing. Replace your friends with those who still have some self-respect. K.
  16. Fateh! Ah, here comes the "you are all Hindus line!". Get this through your head: Kshatriya Dharam in Sikhi is a spiritual state of mind not some <banned word filter activated> about blood, genetics or heredity. And, mate, if you have to defeat someone 16 times, it means you never really defeated them in the first place. K.
  17. Fateh! There were Mazbhi Singhs, Ramgharia Singhs, Khatri Singhs, Arora Singhs, Jat Singhs in the Khalsa Army. They were all true Kshatriyas regardless of whatever caste they belonged to prior to chakking Amrit. Having Rajput caste or blood does not make you a kshatriya. Enough of your idle threats. Come over to the UK, and bring some barfi. K.
  18. Fateh! Perhaps you should go back and ask these Nihangs what they mean when they talk about Kshatris. Kshatri Dharam in Sikhi is very different to typical Hindu caste nonsense. Better yet, ask them for some literary sources, because I can guarantee that there is nothing that suggests Sikhs learning anything from Rajputs. Or just name the Nihnags you have spoken to so that I can ask them myself. Yes, what it took the Rajputs/Marathas almost a 1000 years trying, Sikhs did in a couple of generations. Without giving away their daughters and sisters into the Mughal Malecch. Edit: I see a typical "you are really Hindus!" and "we taught you everything you know!" and "Hindus got rid of the Mughals not the Sikhs!" RSS Hindu thread brewing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8o1jfByi3aE K.
  19. Fateh! Nope, Nihangs do not worship Shastar like Hindu Rajputs, neither do they worship Bhavani, Durga or whatever as an entity that is anything but a creation of Akal. Nihang Sikh history relates that it was Baba Buddha who taught the Sikhs Shastar Vidiya, though oral history has it that it came straight from Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. In any case, what is obvious is that the Sikhs became the Masters of it. You can also deny your history all you want, but the truth is that the Rajputs were giving away their daughters to enter Muslim harems so that they were not annihilated by superior Mughal forces. It started during the time of Akbar (you can read about the Rajput princesses in his harem in his journal Akbarnama) and continued right up until Mughal Rule was destroyed by the Sikhs. The original Singhs (and we're talking about Singhs by heart and avastha not non-existent caste) come from Satyuga. Vide Dasam Granth. Regards, K. Fateh! Look for a Gatka Akhara at your local Gurdwara. K.
  20. LOL Ah yes, those same Rajputs who gave away their daughters to the Mughals. The Sikhs did not learn Shastar Vidiya from Rajputs neither did they get their bir ras from goddesses - our Shakti comes from Amrit and Akal. Nice dance, by the way. K.
  21. Fateh! Contact mi5 through their website instead then. They will pass on info to SIS, if it concerns them. You can do this here: https://www.mi5.gov.uk/output/contact-form.html?subject=Other%20Enquiries K.
  22. Fateh! They don't take emails from the general public. If it's about a job, they will have sent you an email address to contact them. If it's to report possible terrorist activity, there is a hotline you can call them on 0800 789 321. You may be able to contact mi5 on their website though. If it is about a job, you shouldn't be talking about it with anyone apart from immediate family and/or partner/spouse. K.
  23. Fateh! Thanks for the response, veer ji, and thanks for not just removing the thread. Unfortunately the site is still banned and it is still impossible to link to the kathas, translations and discussions that have been accumulated there by other Gursikhs. I am certain that Bijla Singh and Neo Singh will be able to sit down and overcome any private issues like Gursikhs when they are ready, but that is a private matter between the two of them. I simply ask that the two forums not be dragged into the disagreement between them because, at the end of the day, it is other Gursikhs who are here (and on Sikh Awareness) to learn about Sikhi who will suffer for lack of knowledge. The cybersangat is larger than the real world sangat the most people will keep, and as such I feel it needs to represent the ekta that Sikhs should be striving for in their dealings with members of the sangat with whom they have real-life interactions and disagreements now and in the future. After all, it is pretty easy to remain cordial with friends in real life, but what about maintaining cordial interactions within the larger Panth? If one can overcome the temptation of using the anonymity of the internet to needlessly argue with other Gursikhs, to do nindiya and chugliya, to forget all courtesy and manners, then the cybersangat model can be used to strive for ekta of the Panth in the real world. Otherwise this forum and others will just become a sad reflection of the disorder and disunity of the Panth outside of the internet. Regards, Kaljug Singh.
  24. That's an excellent website. www.bulkpowders.co.uk is another one. K.
  25. Fateh! This is a benti to the mods to reverse your decision on making the SA forum a banned site on ths forum. It's a pity that two great and chardikala Gursikhs like Bijla Singh of SS and Neo Singh of SA have had a falling out, but the other site has nothing anti-Gurmat in its message. As such, I do not feel the need to ban every mention of the site here and, as a result, to ban other Gursikhs here of such a unique resource In my experience, both sites have a unique approach to Sikhi and both have a different sangat, but they are two parts of the same wonderful Sikh Panth. As to the rumour that the other forum is inciting hate for Sikh Sangat, it is entirely untrue. Neo Singh is as impartial and unbiased as mods get - we have very divergent views on some subjects, but he has never removed any of my posts and has always been courteous in his responses to views with which he does not agree. I believe any member of Sikh Awareness will say the same thing about Neo, regardless of any difference of opinions. My experience corresponding with Bijla Singh off the forum has been just as positive. Where he has disagreed with my views, he has been kind enough to quote the relevant panktis from Gurbani to back up his disagreements. Singho, at the end of the day, we are all Gursikhs, and if one wants ekta in the Panth in the real world, it has to be manifested here on internet land first where everyone has the opportunity to express an opinion, disagree with others, and learn from the experience. And mods, please don't delete the thread and ask me to open a ticket. Please let the sangat here have their say. Regards, Kaljug Singh.
