  1. Veer Ji, This is something that has been in my mind for a long time and your post has provided the nudge / inspiration for me to find some time & start a blog / join wordpress. Thank You. Waheguru... Waheguru... Waheguru...
  2. Veero, The reason this happens is that people of Sikh 'background' and non-Sikhs, mix and confuse Punjabi/Bhangra culture with that of Sikhi way of life. Before anyone gets offended I am just stating that this is the norm. A prime example is one of the most famous bhangra songs of all time (played at parties / clubs etc): Lyrics: Baari kholke WAHEGURU bol ke seat utteh beht balliye, nava le leya truck tere yaar ne Babeyan de chal challiye.... ....jadon Zimidara Dhaba billo jad auga jatt murga te motta peg lauga WAHEGURU... WAHEGURU... WAHEGURU.
  3. SarabjeetSingh - Thanks bro. Onlyfive - Brother, I am Sikh, I call myself Sikh & strive to follow Sikhi. It's just a username, it's not supposed to mean anything trust me. I can change it to Tarlochan'sSikh or Namdev'sSikh or even Baba Nanak's Sikh? I am baffled why it bothers people (thats why I hardly post on here), especially as there are people who have usernames that make no sense at all! Anyway I'm happy to agree to disagree.
  4. Brings me great sorrow - I'm trying to control my anger!! As they say God is watching! Waheguru...Waheguru...Waheguru....
  5. Veero, I remember listening to an old audio, I think from Harbhajan Singh Yogi, basically saying that from when Guru Nanak Ji visited Mecca (or Makkah) that there is a plaque or shrine still there. I have been trying to find anything on the Internet and in books but can't find anything - anyone know if this is true that there is still a shrine there? I know difficult to answer because only muslims are allowed in Mecca in modern times.... but I just wondered after seeing a picture of the Gurdwara/ shrine in Baghdad. Thanks.
  6. Veero, There are some absolutely despicable videos on YouTube which have used Sri Ravidass Ji's picture and are depicting him drunk/dancing - together with obscene language & even a second video made to make Sri Ravidass Ji look like he is barking!! This is absolutely DISGRACEFUL and all followers of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji should not stand or tolerate this!! If Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji held Sri Ravidass Ji in the highest highest esteem and included his bani in the Sat Guru Granth Sahib Ji then all followers should respect him & ensure he is treated with the utmost respect. SIMPLE. P
  7. They most definitely could have, no doubt. But just because something wasn't done back then doesn't mean it is pointless today as well. At that point of time, survival was the top priority as we were being hunted right and left. Today things are not that bad. Moreover, in the words of Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale, the day the Indian army walks into Sri Darbar Sahib, the foundation of Khalistan will be laid. Punjab on this day needs a wake up call first of all. Do not go by what is going on in Punjab because the kind of Khalsa that is envisioned in Khalistan is rare in Punjab today
  8. A very positive cause (I know not solely job related) is to: log onto www.UnitedSikhs.org & donate generously to support the relief effort in Pakistan (Taliban conflict) United Nations estimates over 1million people have been displaced as a result of the conflict. UNITED SIKHS Aid team is working to provide food and supplies for those who need it the most. Waheguru...Waheguru...Waheguru....
  9. We all belong to the One - Ek Onkar.

    My username is not a caste.

    Would it make an ounce of difference to my Nitnem if I was called Nanak's Sikh, Gobind's Sikh, Kabir's Sikh or Namdev's Sikh?

    Don't spread hate, spread Gurbani :o)

  10. Ek Onkar Sat Guru Prasad...

    I pray for Sukh (Happiness), Sharnty (Peace) & Acha Sett (Good Health) for all followers of Sat Guru Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj.

    Waheguru...Waheguru...Waheguru...

  11. Ji, Not sure which Kirtanee you heard, but this is the Shabad you are talking about & so it may jog someone else's memory. :D Waheguru...Waheguru...Waheguru
  12. Veer Ji - I was compelled to respond to your comments... just to say this is an excellent posting! Waheguru...Waheguru...Waheguru...
  13. by whom? so are you Sikhs to prove a point to 'people' and not to 'guru'. you seem to think you are what you are because of what people think about you and not the guru. that is what you call low self esteem which gets instilled since when you are born and walk in society. another of your type, jason, put it quite plainly that you live in 'society' and not in 'sggs'. you guys would even grow tails in your backside if 'society' demanded it. no wonder you have been at the receiving end for thousands of years and will remain so unable to let go of the shackles that bind your soul and will stay on
  14. Why are you calling yourself a "ravidassia" Sikh? You've just proven his point, no matter if he's a ravidassi, a sikh or neither. ...The fact that readers are questioning my Username & not referring to my post where I have explained the three key teachings from Shri Guru Nanak JI, is an example of the problem we have in Sikhi society. All, I have mentioned my username on a few occasions & I am happy to copy & paste my answer from another topic & elaborate... ""People from low castes who are Sikhs and have been for generations & generations are told that we are no
  15. Ji, I couldnt agree with you more. Is anyone inside Sikhi let alone outside of Sikhi aware of the pillars of Sikhism?? - Kirat Karo - to live an honest family life & earning by the sweat of one's brow - Vand Chhako - to share with the community through charitable giving - Naam Japo - continual remembrance of Waheguru & focus on his name It's a sad reflection when people say what's Sikh or "ahhh you're Sikh: you guys like a drink or you guys <insert Punjabi stereotype here>" Too much time wasted on in-fighting & building monuments rather than to actually spread Gurbani.
