  1. Nothing people like these just stir up things for no reason . let's not go of topic

    WaheguruJiKaKhalsa!! WaheguruJiKiFateh!!

    Please read the whole thread

    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.

  2. 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).

  3. Thirdly,

    Giani Gurdev SIngh Jee is singing lines from Bhai Nand Lal Jee's Rehatnama.

    ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਗੁਰਜਾਪਏੇਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂਕਰਧਿਆਨ

    ਮੁਕਤਲਾਭਸੋਹੋਇਹੈਂਗੁਰਸਿਖਰਿਦਿਮਹਿਮਾਨ॥ (੪੦)

    And as per Sikh Rehat Maryada:

    c. In the congregation, kirtan only of Gurbani (Guru Granth’s or Guru Gobind Singh’s hymns) and, for its

    elaboration, of the compositions of Bhai Gurdas and Bhai Nand Lal, may be performed.

    Here is a link to the composition: http://searchgurbani.com/bhai_nand_lal/rahitnama

    Thank you so much for clearing this up for me.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. All the historical Sikh texts such as Sri Gur Sobha by Kavi Saina Singh (1741), Gur Rattan Mala by Sahib Singh (1734), Gurbilas by Kuir Singh (1751), Bansavlinama by Kesar Singh (1769), Mehima Prakash by Saroop Singh (1776), Guru Kian Sakhian by Saroop Singh Kaushish (1790), Shaheed Bilas by Seva Singh (1803), Singh Sagar by Bir Singh Bal (1827), Sri Guru Pracheen Panth Prakash by Rattan Singh Bhangu (1841), Sri Gurpratap Suraj Prakash by Kavi Santokh Singh (1843), Gurmat Nirannya by Pandit Tara Singh Narotam (1877), and Naveen Panth Prakash by Giani Gian Singh (1878), as well as the puratan rehit namas all have references to jhatka being accepted within the Sikh code of conduct (Rehit Maryada), or the clear ban on eating flesh that has been killed according to the Muslim ritual of Halal, also known as Kutha within the Sikh community.

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. It''s sad that Sikhs have to go to these western countries in the first place. Why can't we build a good homeland, and don't say it's purely due to Indian oppression.

    We have one of the worst sex ratios in India an the worst alcohol/drug problem.

    The main reason why Sikhs and others leave is money. For example the minimum wage here in Australia is $16.37 an hour which equates just over 950 Rupees an hour. They just can't compete in Punjab and other areas of India.

  10. Khalsa Ji,

    We are free to make our own choice, given different options. We make choices, but are under the influence of Kaam/krodh/lobh/moh/hankaar. Our temperament has also been shaped by our previous karams too. Only Naam can remomove the influence of the above 5.

    Waheguru...

    Thank you for clearing that up.

  11. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Ji.

    I would like to share what I do when I do my simran.

    Jap Ji Sahib tells us that we must: Listen, Accept and then Love. So each time I say Waheguru I listen to my own voice. You can practice your concentration by saying Waheguru faintly and still trying to hear your own voice. I just think about the word Waheguru. Then through repetition, your simran automatically becomes Saas Saas simran whereby you say Wahe on inhale and Guru on exhale. If you are doing it correctly then you will taste sweetness. This is the same taste as when you take Amrit from Kande di Pahul.

    Start off slow, it is not a race. Waheguru Ji is inside you. I think the best time to do simran is before Amrit Vela Nitnem.

    But you must also remember that you need to take Khande di Pahul, which means that you accept Guru Granth Sahib Ji as your Guru and then Guru Ji will give you the Gurmantar.

    Hope this helps, Bhul Chuk Maaf.
