  1. It looks like this word has been used in Faridkot teeka Any 136 ਅਠਸਠਿ ਤੀਰਥ ਸਗਲ ਪੁੰਨ ਜੀਅ ਦਇਆ ਪਰਵਾਨੁ ॥ ਅਠਾਹਠਂ ਤੀਰਥੋਂ ਕੇ ਇਸਨਾਨ ਅਰ ਸਭ ਪੁੰਨੋਂ ਕੇ (ਪਰਵਾਨੁ) ਸਦਰਸ ਹੈ ਜੋ ਜੀਵੋਂ ਪਰ ਵਾ ਆਪਨੇ ਜੀਵ ਪਰ ਦਯਾ ਕਰਨੀ ਹੈ॥ Looks like it means parvaan if I have understood correctly. However there is also the following where Faridkot has used the same but here it seems it's been used to mean "other" or "second" if I have understood correctly, unless it means greater or foremost? ਆਪੇ ਕਰੇ ਕਰਾਏ ਕਰਤਾ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਦੂਜਾ ਤੁਝੈ ਸਰੇ ॥੯॥ (Ang 552) ਕਰਤਾ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਸਭ ਕੁਛ ਆਪ ਹੀ ਕਰਤਾ ਕਰਾਉਤਾ ਹੈ ਔਰ ਦੂਸਰਾ ਕੋਈ (ਸਰੇ) ਸਮਾਨ (ਤੁਝੈ) ਤਿਸ ਕੇ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ ਵਾ ਹੇ ਕਰਤਾ ਤੂੰ ਸਭ ਕਛੁ ਆਪ ਹੈਂ (ਤੁਝੇ) ਤੇਰੇ ਸਦਰਸ ਹੋਰੁ ਕੋਈ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ ਇਸੀ ਤ੍ਰਹ ਸੇ ਸਭ ਪਦ ਸਨਮੁਖ ਲਗਤੇ ਹੈਂ॥੯॥ Faridkot teeka has used this word quite a bit, I think it has been used slightly differently at different times. If you put the following search in Google, you can find all the instances the word has been used in Faridkot teeka: "ਸਦਰਸ site:srigranth.org" (without the speech marks)
  2. Please post the specific shabads so we can do veechar on them
  3. I am a regular reader of dasam patshah Di bani, uggardanti is one of my favourite bania, I would agree with you to an extent but actually put forward another view. Yes this is definitely praise of Sri Durga and not simply the kirpan - the of view of the praise just being a kirpan had truly come from people not wanting to go past their comfort zone. However I would say that "Durga" can definitely be seen on two levels. One is indeed the physical roop of Devi - this is the meaning of Durga throughout most of chandi Di vaar- a physical being fighting demons. Any regular reader of dasam bani will certainly develop a great amount of respect for Sri Durga as described in the bani at this point. Only those who don't read will find this confusing, but this is simply following guru Sahib's lead. The second meaning goes deeper and refers to the Kudrat or creative power of Vaheguroo - this is not limited to the physical roop of Devi however is mainly referred to using feminine language by dasam patshah. This is who is being praised in Uggardanti sahib. I would actually argue that one roop of this Shakti is in fact satguru jot - In fact this is the original roop of akaal purakh Shakti. This would go in line with the reference to "Vajeeran" . Guru Gobind Singh Jee Maharaj is praising the guru jot just like in guru Granth Sahib jee, guru Sahib himself is writing but praising satguru. Another reason I believe this, I have always found it interesting that Vaar Sri Bhagauti Jee Kee (chandi Di case) begins with the names of guru Sahib while the rest of the bani is seemingly unrelated. I think the reason for including guru Sahibs names in vaar Sri Bhagauti Jee kee is because these are in fact the purest and most unadulterated, full and original saroop of Bhagauti (Shakti) in guru roop. It is this Shakti which is pargat inside the Devi form of Sri Durga. Other forms of this eternal unseen Shakti are what is behind Narsingh coming from the pillar to save prahlad, the power behind all avatars such as Sri Raamchandra, Krishan Jee etc. So the worshipful side is more for the internal Shakti beyond the physical, but we also admire the physical roop for fighting demons and protection of good. For example even some Hindus make such a distinction with Krishan Jee. They differentiate between Krishna as mentioned in bhagvad Gita and Krishna who fought in mahabharat war. One was a physical entity to fulfill a certain purpose, another as referred to in bhagvad Gita refers to the power behind him, paramatama. Ultimately it is Vaheguroo behind Shakti, it is Vaheguroo behind Satguru (no difference really, but Vaheguroo is behind the physical bodyroop). So it is Vaheguroo that we worship, not ever physical. Last point I want to make is I myself had spent a good many years misunderstanding nihang Singhs and their practices. Yes individuals may certainly get things wrong, but as an institution this is probably the most original form of sikhi in many ways, being passed down seems baseena through generations. We should be very careful before pointing fingers at nihang Singhs as a whole.
  4. Ignore the translation, the exact rehat is not to do "par istree da sang", meaning not to have sexual relations with a woman that is not yours/someone else's. The only way that a woman can be considered yours and not "par istree" is if you have had Anand karaj to her. So yes sex with anyone that is not your wife (whether you are married or not) is a bajjar kurehit. The moment this has taken place, a person ceases to be a Sikh and Guru Sahib's hand is no longer on that person's head. Such a person no longer has any rishta with Guru Sahib any more and they must confess this bajjar kurehit to the Panj pyare, accept and carry out the punishment given to them and re-receive Amrit.
  5. In short, using ATM is not the best option. If you open a Punjab national Bank (PBN) account here in the UK, it is considered different to an account opened in India and in short you don't have any support or service for it there. The most I could do with my PBN account was withdraw some money daily which was limited to a certain amount allowed to be withdrawn each day. There are currency changers in Punjab such as Thomas Cook which can change it for you. You can change some money at the airport but don't change too much money there as the rate is usually not great. One way is to have your money sent by Western Union to Punjab, although when you go to the post office to collect your money, they will ask you for a photocopy of your passport and a copy of proof of your address in India (a hotel bill is acceptable to).

    Matted hair

    I know someone this has happened to, they were ill for a long time and didn't manage to comb their hair. So I helped him to sort it. It was really badly matted hair that looked impossible to sort out but guru kirpa we managed it. First do ardaas. Then you will need to get LOADS of coconut oil. What you should do is keep applying loads of coconut oil again and again and you will have to use your FINGERS to separate each hair. You will probably need to spend along time like more than an hour of not 2 hours to to do this. Only after you have separated them from each other should you try to comb. If you live in the UK and really need help and can't do this, get in touch and I will personally help you. It would be awful to see someone have to cut their hair over this.
  7. Please can you send me a link to any profiles that were sharing this and any contact details of any people sharing this? I would be very happy to meet any supporters of this rubbish face to face. Thank you
  8. The next generation of comrades posing as Sikhs has come about and is now very active on social media posting things such as this. One example is 'Sikh Talk' on facebook. These people are continuing the same tactics as the generations before them in Punjab. They wish to destroy Sikhi from inside by secretly promoting their extreme left wing views and anti-religious sentiments under the guise of being pro Sikh. These atheist comrades were the biggest enemies of the Sikh freedom movement and make up most of the current Sikh missionary dushts. The current generation are not aware of the history of these scumbag commies in Punjab and therefore can be slightly naive when it comes to these kinds of snippets of info. For instance the fact that ATHEIST (not Sikh) Surjeet was a hugely hated individual in Punjab. Beware of the commie menace!
  9. Haha,what a loser you are. That's like saying people who play violent video games are secret wannabe mass murders. (which, coincidentally, meat eaters actually are). Stop trying to sound clever as you actually sound incredibly thick. It is not the taste of meat that vegetarians object to, it is that litle thing called slaughter. So if something has not been slaughtered, its vegetarian and doesn't compromise a vegetarian's belief in anyway. These products prove to the wider world that you can be a vegetarian and not feel you are missing out on anything. Do you understand now or should I break it down for you even more? Also the person in your display picture was a vegetarian.
  10. This guy is a joke. A few years back he was living in London like a typical freshie boy trying to make it in Southall. Guess it didn't work out so he thought it would be more profitable to go back home and become a baba. There pics of him being matha tek etc. There are some pics speculating that he has also trimmed his mucha
  11. VahegurooJiKaKhalsaVahegurooJiKiFateh! The sangat alone chooses who leads the Khalsa Panth, and we choose the Panj Pyare. Please share the image below across social media and set as your dp to show who you accept as your leader! #SachayAagoo VahegurooJiKaKhalsaVahegurooJiKiFateh!
  12. VahegurooJiKaKhalsaVahegurooJiKiFateh No problem has no solution. No dukh is irremovable. Dukh is not as a result of an events, dukh is simply a result of the hope that we apply to events. Give up wanting things and you will not feel dukh. Guru Sahib says the only important thing is naam- not any of the worldly things you have mentioned that you are worried about. So as far as guru sahib is concerned, as long as you jap naam you are fine. Guru Sahib's opinion of you is all that matters. Look at things from Guru Sahib's prospective, not the world's. Please get in touch with me via personal message or email, uttamskhalsa@gmail.com . I would really like to speak to you veerji. Here are two shabads to think about. In the last two pauries of the first shabad, Guru Sahib explains that the cause of all dukh is the hopes, dreams and desires that we create and them not being fulfilled. Guru Jee says remove these hopes and dreams for worldly sukhs and be completely happy with the living treasure (vaheguroo) that is inside you forever - and that can never be taken away from you. The Satguru (bani/keertan/abhiyaas) alone can give you this state of mind and being. Vaheguroo. Instead of feeling this wordly pain, instead of worrying about worldly things, feel the pain of separation from vaheguroo, worry about the fact you are seperated from vaheguroo. You know what the solution to this one worry is (NAAM), so your life is now a lot easier as you only have one thing to concentrate and focus on. ਸੂਹੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ਘਰੁ ੫ Soohee, Fourth Mehl, Fifth House: ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ One Universal Creator God.

  13. The section in Sri Dasam Granth that you are quoting from is the part where Vaheguroo is talking about the various sadhus, religious leaders, prophets, etc. that were on earth prior to Satguru Nanak manifesting in human form. It is written in chronological order, with each prophet/saint being mentioned in the order that they came to Earth. It is impossible for the Ramanand mentioned in Sri Dasam Granth to be the same blessed Bhagat Ramanand Jee whose bani is in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee as the Ramanand in this passage appears BEFORE Islam's prophet Muhammed. Muhammed was born in 570 CE while our Bhagat Ramanand Jee was born in the 14th Century, long after Muhammed's death. The Ramanand talked about here in Dasam Granth is definitely someone different.
  14. I am looking for the english translations of Bhavrasamrit Granth and Vivek Pradipika by Bhai Tirath Singh Nirmala. Can anyone please share where I may be able to find them?
