    Effects of Dasam Granth Bani

    No, Akal Ustat does not equal 16,000 or whatever japs of Waheguru. One needs to do simran of Gurmantar themselves, there are NO shortcuts in Sikhi, only Gurmat.

  3. Baba was given to people who were shaheed. If you need more info on Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, read Dr. Ganda Singh's book.
  4. No printed Saroop/Senchi/Gutka is shudh. Scholars have done decades of research that is currently being kept gupt due to the state of the Panth. Read this comment by Singh Fauja if anyone want's a top of the iceberg explanation.

    Kali on Guru Hargobind sahibs sword

    This is probably a different question, but how can we verify that historic artifacts are real? Also, how should we be preserving and handling them to keep them safe, I always find it odd the tegha is being held by bare hands instead of wearing gloves.

    Dasam Granth in Eng/Punjabi

    Raag is a musical measure, Chand is a style of poetry. No correlation there.
  7. From my experience, AKJ usually have a bit longer Rehraas than SGPC, but shorter than Taksal and Budha Dal.
  8. Those are read in Rehraas, but not in morning Nitnem (unless one wants to, its their choice to read more Baani).
  9. They end after (ਦੁਸਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥) because after this, Guru Sahib ends the Benti and now thanks Akaal Purakh for completing the Granth (Charitropakyan). I personally think its fine to read the last 2 Pauris (ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰੀ ਹਮ ਪਰ ਜਗਮਾਤਾ ॥ and ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਸਿਧੁਜ ਜਬ ਭਏ ਦਯਾਲਾ ॥) and the Arril (ਸੁਨੈ ਗੁੰਗ ਜੋ ਯਾਹਿ ਸੁ ਰਸਨਾ ਪਾਵਈ ॥), but I do not see why the Choupai after that one (ਸੰਬਤ ਸਤ੍ਰਹ ਸਹਸ ਭਣਿਜੈ ॥) needs to read. This choupai is literally just mentioning the date and location where the Granth was completed. It makes sense if someone was doing Paath of the whole Charitropakyan granth, but not when doing Benti Chaupai.

    Is Donald Trump right

    Due to his tax cuts, our middle class family paid less on taxes. In my opinion, with the buzzwords aside, he is doing a OK job. The only thing I think is bad about him are his annoying tweets and his immoral character.

    opinion on alex jones?

    I only watch Shapiro to find what masala is happening in politics, otherwise there are better intellectuals to watch. Milo is a dead meme, he is a provocateur and has no substance.
  14. With the recent replacing of the Door of the Sri Harmandir Sahib Darshani Deori and now this incident, hopefully it will stop. They all denounce it now because it has been made public and majority of the Panth is against them. These Kar Sevaks have been under with SGPC for over 4 decades now destroying our heritage, but these guys never said a word. Where was Dhumma (who has a large influence in SGPC in the past decade) when these decisions were made? This is SGPC's fault, they authorized these Kar Sevaks to do the damage they did. The SGPC is frantically trying to fix its image by blaming the Babas, but reality is that the blame goes on them. The Kar Seva Babas are just contractors.

    Gurdwara Charan Kanwal (Banga)

    This Gurdwara is where my Parents and Grandparents used to go as they originally came from Banga. While the land for the Gurdwara was given by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the building itself was built in the 1920's I think.

    opinion on jaggi vasudev ?

    He is Vaishnav from what I've read.
  17. I posted a photo earlier of some guy destroying the Original Sri Akal Takht Sahib that was built by Guru Sahib, people do this type of stuff.
  18. There seems to be many trees right outside the complex.
  19. Look here: http://dailysikhupdates.com/collection-rare-pictures-sri-harmandir-sahib-ji/
  20. http://karsewatarntaran.com/karsewa.aspx?SewaId=7&Sewa=Completed Look the first photo of the tree. How is that tree going to survive!!?!?! So many Historical trees have died because they literally choked the tree roots with marble.
  21. Yea, some of them they just plated the original building with marble and painted them. Thats fine, but I never understood them knocking down the whole building, even if it is structurally unsound. They should be hiring experts to preserve them.
  22. If they were proper civil engineers and architects, they could have a plan to build on top of the original building and solidify it. Then expose parts of the original historical building (and maybe cover with glass for protection) to show sangat. But nope, lets just let Kar Seva babay knock it down and rebuild.
