  1. They are rural, I am an example of one depends on if they are khalsa sikh or not
  2. The symbol is called a Yakash. It is a ਪੈਰ ਯੱਯਾ, older version of half ਯੱਯਾ "੍ਯ". In handwritten birhs, this used to be of a hook shape and font makers blindly copied. However it seems STTM is using an updated font that shows this ਚਿੰਨ੍ਹ properly. The uchaaran is: ਕਲਿਅੁਚਰੈ (Think of it as ਕਲ੍ਯੁਚਰੈ) Another example is: Uchaaran would be ਲਖਿਅਣ You add a sihari " ਿ " to the base akhar and then add an "ਅ" after it in ucharan.
  3. We should learn Farsi, Singhs in puratan times to do so. We have various literature in Farsi that cannot be read properly by us. Also remember that the first Shabad in Tilang raag, Guru Sahib has written in Farsi.
  4. My grandfather used to do full Anand Sahib paath during Rehraas.
  5. There are many who hold the view that all the Bhagats met Guru Sahib physically, became Sikhs, then went on to Sachkhand. See Giani Gurditt Singh's book on Bhagat Baani.
  6. Why was my reply deleted? Here is my original reply:
  7. People keep claiming this to make some sort of point or get clout, but the truth is that this is still under research. Had the Sikh Reference Library not been stolen and the SGPC not be corrupt and sign off papers that say they received puratan saroops back from GOI even though they didn't, we would have an answer to this Mahalla 10 question. Though, current research points to it not being Mahalla 10, as older saroops that the panth has available do not have this.
  8. It is said Guru Nanak Dev Ji was parkash (born) ੧ ਪਹਿਰ ਰਾਤ ਰਹਿੰਦੀ, which would mean around 3-4am.
  9. This could have been used to measure Pehar timings. A common misconception is that a pehar is 3 hours long, this is far from the case. A pehar is dynamic depending on what part of the day one is in. There are two parts in day: Daytime and Nighttime. This means there are two types of pehars. Daytime: Sunrise to Sunset Nighttime: Sunset to next Sunrise Since Sun timings are always changing, pehar timings are always different. 1st Daytime Pehar - Starts at Sunrise 3rd Daytime Pehar - Starts at Solar Noon 1st Nighttime Pehar - Starts at Sunset 3rd Nighttime Pehar - Starts at Solar Midnight. In total there are 8 Pehars, but one cannot assume the daytime and nighttime pehars are of the same length.
  10. It is ਇੱਕ ਓਅੰਕਾਰ. There is no argument about this. The author of this article is spouting a baseless theory which is frankly nonsense, alongside others who have their own baseless views about the ucharan of ੴ. ਓਅੰਕਾਰ is the primal sound. Here is the first few lines of the ਓਅੰਕਾਰ baani with arths from Prof. Sahib Singh. ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ ਅਕਾਲ ਪੁਰਖ ਇੱਕ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਨਾਲ ਮਿਲਦਾ ਹੈ। ਰਾਮਕਲੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਦਖਣੀ ਓਅੰਕਾਰੁ ॥ ਰਾਗ ਰਾਮਕਲੀ ਦਖਣੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਦੀ ਬਾਣੀ 'ਓਅੰਕਾਰੁ'। ਓਅੰਕਾਰਿ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਉਤਪਤਿ ॥ (ਹੇ ਪਾਂਡੇ! ਤੁਸੀ ਮੰਦਰ ਵਿਚ ਅਸਥਾਪਨ ਕੀਤੀ ਹੋਈ ਇਸ ਮੂਰਤੀ ਨੂੰ 'ਓਅੰਕਾਰ' ਮਿਥ ਰਹੇ ਹੋ, ਤੇ ਆਖਦੇ ਹੋ ਕਿ ਸ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਟੀ ਨੂੰ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਨੇ ਪੈਦਾ ਕੀਤਾ ਸੀ। ਪਰ 'ਓਅੰਕਾਰ' ਉਹ ਸਰਬ-ਵਿਆਪਕ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਹੈ ਜਿਸ) ਸਰਬ-ਵਿਆਪਕ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਤੋਂ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਦਾ (ਭੀ) ਜਨਮ ਹੋਇਆ, ਓਅੰਕਾਰੁ ਕੀਆ ਜਿਨਿ ਚਿਤਿ ॥ ਉਸ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਨੇ ਭੀ ਉਸ ਸਰਬ-ਵਿਆਪਕ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਨੂੰ ਆਪਣੇ ਮਨ ਵਿਚ ਵਸਾਇਆ। ਓਅੰਕਾਰਿ ਸੈਲ ਜੁਗ ਭਏ ॥ ਇਹ ਸਾਰੀ ਸ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਟੀ ਤੇ ਸਮੇ ਦੀ ਵੰਡ ਉਸ ਸਰਬ-ਵਿਆਪਕ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਤੋਂ ਹੀ ਹੋਏ, ਓਅੰਕਾਰਿ ਬੇਦ ਨਿਰਮਏ ॥ ਵੇਦ ਭੀ ਓਅੰਕਾਰ ਤੋਂ ਹੀ ਬਣੇ। ਓਅੰਕਾਰਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਉਧਰੇ ॥ ਜੀਵ ਗੁਰੂ ਦੇ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਵਿਚ ਜੁੜ ਕੇ ਉਸ ਸਰਬ-ਵਿਆਪਕ ਪਰਮਾਤਮਾ ਦੀ ਸਹੈਤਾ ਨਾਲ ਹੀ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਦੇ ਵਿਕਾਰਾਂ ਤੋਂ ਬਚਦੇ ਹਨ, ਓਅੰਕਾਰਿ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਤਰੇ ॥ ਤੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਦੇ ਦੱਸੇ ਰਾਹ ਉਤੇ ਤੁਰ ਕੇ ਸੰਸਾਰ-ਸਮੁੰਦਰ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਪਾਰ ਲੰਘਦੇ ਹਨ।
  11. Very dubious, Sukhaee could mean anything? It could be a granthi who is chosen to do Sukhaasan seva. There is no evidence presented that Sukhaee means ਸੁਖਾ [ਭੰਗ] ਬਣਾਉਣ ਵਾਲਾ।
  12. Ignore this guy. There are already many institutions and YouTube channels supporting Gurmat Sangeet. Guru Sahib never forbade non-Raag kirtan. Rather many Sikhs from this group you claim to be "anti-raag" have learned Raag from an Ustaad. There is no way you can do proper Kirtan without learning some type or form of Raag. There is no such thing as "anti-raag", it is a strawman argument. Instead of complaining on an internet forum, what have you done? Have you gone out and learned Raag? Are you trying to learn the traditional instruments like the Dilruba, Saranda, Taus, Rabab, Jorri, etc.? There are many ustaads now teaching Gurmat Sangeet and much literature published on the topic that there is no excuse to say Raag is dying or is dead.
  13. Lol Thankfully, Guru Sahib has given Maryada of only Grihast Gursikhs (married, never divorced/remarried) to do seva in Panj.
