    Naamdharis Given Air On Sangat Tv

    Naamdharis are NOT SIKHS. Namdharis are Namdharis. if they were Sikhs then they would call themselves Sikhs. Namdharis are are different religion/organisation just like Ravidasia, Radhasoami, Nirankari, Jain, Jew, Hindu, Islam, Christianity, Budhism etc.... They do NOT beleive Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj as their true Satguru. As stipulated in the Sikh Rehat Maryada from Sri Akal Takht Sahib a Sikh is one who beleives in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as their Guru. Therefore Sri Akal Thakht Sahib Hukamnamas shouldn't apply to Namdharis as they are NOT Sikhs.

    Naamdharis Given Air On Sangat Tv

    I haven't seen the show with Naamdharis on it but, according to Sikh Rehat Maryada: The Definition of Sikh : Article I Any human being who faithfully believes in i. One Immortal Being, ii. Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak Sahib to Guru Gobind Singh Sahib, iii. The Guru Granth Sahib, iv. The utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus and v. the baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru, and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion, is a Sikh These people be it Naamdharis, Radhasoamis, Nirankaris, Ravidasia or anyone else who doesn't fit the definition of a Sikh according to the Sikh Rehat Maryada are not Sikhs. They are of a different religion/organisation. I have no problem with a Naamdhari being given air time just as if a Muslim, Hindu or Christian being given air time. These types of discussions allow people to make up their own minds and show how pakhandi they are. Sangat Tv should have a disclaimer that these views of Naamdharis do not represent Sangat Tv or the Sikh Community.

    How Would You Respond?

    From the description it seems that such a person is not really happy. They are sad inside and have ego instead of true love. True everlasting love is to love the everlasting. So if he cannot or is unwilling to remember and love Waheguru then his bliss that he feels now will eventually end. Only through remembering and loving Waheguru can bliss last forever. Waheguru in his infinite wisdom has given us choices so choose wisely.

    How To Concentrate When Doing Naam Jap

    Imagine you are reading a book and all that is written is Waheguru, Waheguru, Waheguru infinite times. So you are reading Waheguru and keep reading.

  7. This ban is stupid, because Allah was spoken before Islam. Even Jesus apparently said Allah.

    Animal Sacrifices?!

    This is a thread about 'animal sacrifices', so why are people talking about eating jhatka meat or eating veggies? As for animal sacrifices: I would like to know to whom do the animals get sacrificed? because Waheguru doesn't need it & Sikhi beleives in one Waheguru not 330 million Devte. Gurbani tells us to sacrifice ouselves (hao man arpi, sabh tan arpi), thus showing full devotion to Waheguru.

    Have you got the answer you seek?

    Animal Sacrifices?!

    I have read the thread many times, but cannot find the answer to my question of whether mahaprashad is greater than gur prashad / Amrit or greater than degh/karah prashad? The term maha suggests that this prashad is the greatest.

    Animal Sacrifices?!

    Maha Prashad is not something I have heard of until this post. The term Maha Prashad to me would mean the great blessing. Does this mean that it is greater than the Karah Prashad served in Gurdwaras? Is it greater than Gur Prashad? Is it greater than Amrit? From what I have been taught in gurmat classes is that a Sikh only sacrifices themselves before Guru Ji (hence taking Khande thi Pahul symbolises sacrificing oneself). Once someone has sacrificed themself then they have nothing left to sacrifice, because everything essentially belongs to Guru Ji/Waheguru (Tan, Man, Dhan Sabh Saop Gur Kao: Sri Anand Sahib).

    Meaning Of This Line?

    WJKK WJKF, Bhagat Kabeer Ji is telling us to trust in Waheguru 100% and Waheguru alone. It is not possible to trust humanity as much as Waheguru. There is no instance where Waheguru will not let you down. Humans are fallible therefore Bhagat Ji is explaining that even in the instance where a mother (whom we would trust 100% with our lives) may poison her own child then who can we trust? The answer is trust in Waheguru, he is our creator and caretaker. (Poison doesn't just have to be poison ingested through the mouth. Poison could be not teaching Gurmat and steering the child away from Guru Ji or filling the mind with wicked thoughts) Hope this helps, bhul chuk maaf. WJKK WJKF
  15. When everyone becomes Amritdhari then the whole world will be Khalistan. Aim big and spread the Sikhi, that's all that needs to be done, then Khalistan will happen automatically. Raj Karega Khalsa.
  16. This video I found seems to refute the sakhi that Guru Arjan Dev Ji went to his Nanake in Lahore (see from 4:37 minutes in) and that Guru Arjan Dev Ji wrote the last line upon returning to Guru Ram Das Ji because Guru Arjan Dev Ji wasn't Guru at that time, Guru Ram Das Ji was. So therefore Guru Arjan Dev Ji had could not have used Guru Nanak Dev Ji's name because he wasn't the Guru. Only Guru Ramdas had the authority to use Guru Nanak Dev Ji;s name at that time, until the Gurgaddi was passed onto Guru Arjan Dev Ji. Also Professor Sahib Singh Ji's darpan of Guru Granth Sahib Ji states that the sakhi seems to be fictional. Please can someone elaborate and clear my confusion. For instance is there a Gurdwara in Lahore where these letters were sent from? Bhul Chuk Maaf.

    Taksali Santhiya

    You can get Taksaali santhya in the UK i'm sure. I don't think you need to go all the way to Punjab. I got my Taksaali Santhya from Guru Nanak Gurdwara, Smethwick. That was 15 years ago. I don't know if the Santhya is still Taksaali, but i'm sure there will be other places in the UK that provide Taksaali Santhya.

    As Sikhs we must believe in the Shabad and spread the message of Guru Ji.
  21. I am unsure where they got the idea that jhatka meat is ok because Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji does not authorise the consumption of meat (jhatka or halal). The only time meat would be allowed is when there is no other food source available, therefore the consumption of meat would be to save a life and not for the pleasure of the tongue. People read individual lines of Gurbani and come up with the wrong conclusion. The whole sabad must be understood.
  22. Sikhs are not allowed to eat meat period. Rehat Maryada may say not to eat Kutha or meat killed in a ritualistic way (halal or kosher), BUT IT DOESN'T SAY GO AND KILL AN ANIMAL IN A JHATKA WAY (where in the Maryada is the word Jhatka written?). Meat is only permitted in the extreme circumstance where there is no other food source available. One does not have the time to kill in a ritualistic way when they are starving. This issue should not affect Sikhs. jeea badhahu su dharam kar thaapahu adharam kehahu kath bhaaee | You kill living beings, and call it a righteous action. Tell me, brother, what would you call an unrighteous action? aapas ko munivar kar thaapahu kaa ko kehahu kasaaee |2| You call yourself the most excellent sage; then who would you call a butcher? ||2|| (Bhagat Kabeer Ji, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji ang 1103)
