  1. SANGAT JI, PLEASE POST THIS ON YOUR FLICKR & FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fatheh! June 2nd to June 8th, 2008 is INTERNATIONAL 1984 MEMORIAL WEEK. There are special events happening ALL WEEK in BC. If you feel "enough" is not done in our community to reach out, to make our issues known, to commemorate our history, to celebrate Gurbani - this week will have a range of events covering all of these topics. PLEASE ATTEND AS MANY EVENTS AS YOU CAN, AND BRING YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS. It is *EXTREMELY* important that we come out in large numbers on Saturday, June 7th, to commemorate the 24th anniversary of the June 1984 Massacre of Sikhs in Punjab and the November 1984 Massacre of Sikhs in Delhi. Still, 24 years after this horrendous attack, the perpetrators roam free and have NEVER BEEN SENTENCED by the faulty and corrupt criminal justice system of India, which claims to be the world's largest democracy but is instead one of the world's largest human rights abusers and has one of the highest rates of child poverty worldwide. The Sikh youth in BC have been working with local intellectuals, politicians, community leaders, business people, activists, and have invited esteemed guests from out of country for this WEEK-LONG MEMORIAL, including acclaimed author and professor at the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Cynthia Mahmood; Director of the Sikh Research Institute, Harinder Singh; Advocate for 1984 Victims in India, Harvinder Singh Phoolka; Program Associate at Ensaaf, Jasmine Marwaha; Professor of Sociology at Langara College, Indira Prahst; Communications & Gender Development student Kamal Arora; and many others. LET'S JOIN HANDS TOGETHER TO GIVE A VOICE TO THE VICTIMS OF INDIA'S HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES. Let's stand up for justice for victims of oppression everywhere. Let's gather as a whole community to recognize the sacrifices of human rights defenders around the world.

  2. there was a story about a guy who was a wise man and had a chela in one life, but in the next life the wise man was a poor beggar and the chela was a rich guy, and something happened along the lines of the poor beggar teaching the rich guy (his chela in a previous life) a lesson.. has anyone heard this story? i tend to hear stories and remember the characters but forget the main storyline
  3. thank you everyone! these are all wonderful resources. thanks for the bani and the katha tracks, they'll all be very useful. Dancing Warrior, that's a really catchy starter.. i'll let the bhanji know :wub: . is there anything in specific that you would say in either of these lectures? share your own vichaars now :D
  4. vaheguroo jee ka khalsa vaheguroo jee kee fateh! i'm helping two bhanjis prepare for lectures they're doing on these topics, and i was wondering if anyone has any articles or katha tracks or even specific points that could be used in either of these. the journey of the soul one will mainly be about how the soul goes through charaasi lakh joon, takes human birth, and how attached it gets to the world, etc, and also about what the soul is in relation to god (eg. anaykul trang hai - waves emanating from one source) the one on the mind should focus around why the mind wanders, and the effect of panj doot, as well as how to conquer the mind. both of these are pretty deep topics and any input would be greatly appreciated. (i.e. PLEASE REPLY ) thanks :wub: vaheguroo jee ka khalsa vaheguroo jee kee fateh!
  5. Got this email from www.bcsikhyouth.com Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! In the last few days the youngest member of the Canadian parliament who also happens to be a Amridhari Sikh has had his integrity and the integrity of his family attacked by the Right Honorable Prime Minister, Stephen Harper. I am sure you all are aware of this issue, if not I have put the links to some of the main articles. I am sure most people will recognize the article by Kim Bolan of the Vancouver Sun. As young educated Canadians I believe that we must not standby and allow the actions of our Prime Minister to go unnoticed. We must let the office of the Prime Minister know that this type of behavior will not be tolerated by Canadians. The Young Liberals of Canada have put together a petition demanding that Stephen Harper apologize for the slanderous and inappropriate comments he made in the house regarding the Honourable Navdeep Bains and his family. The link to the petition is below. http://www.petitiononline.com/ylc2007/petition.html Because it's never okay to slander an honest Canadian. Please forward to all your friends, they would like to have at least 2000 signatures by Wednesday. Thanks, Gurpreet Singh Vinning http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/sto...y/National/home http://www.thestar.com/News/article/184981 http://ottsun.canoe.ca/News/BreakingNews/2...23/3658481.html Kim Bolan Article: http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/st...90d&k=12857
  6. vaheguru ji please do ardaas.. they have both done a lot of seva in terms of keertan there is a keertan tonight at 6 for them at khalsa school.
  7. from http://bcsikhyouth.com/ Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fatheh! Sadhsangat ji, Gurmukh pyare Bhai Jagdish Singh Jee, husband of Bibi Jagjit Kaur jee, of Sacramento, underwent a serious joint replacement surgery two days ago. He is currently in hospital. Please do ardas with full dhiaan (concentration) and sharda (faith) for the chardi kala (high spirits) and good health of Bhai Jagdish Singh Jee, who have been doing seva and bhagti in the panth for decades. Here is the story of Bibi Ji and Bhai Ji’s introduction to Sikhi several years ago: Waheguruji ka Khalsa Waheguruji ki Fateh When I hear this question ‘How did you come into Sikhi?’I find it cannot so casually be answered. In retrospect, I know it was predestined in this life. Gurusahib put me on this path despite great obstacles I had to face. I did not know the Punjabee language or culture in the least and my family cherished conservative Catholic values. What were my chances of receiving Amrit? My first darshan of a Singh occured when I was seven years old. He was climbing on a bus. I was transfixed by his radiant appearance even at a young age and prayed to God that I marry a handsome prince such as he. I had always been spiritually restless. I found no solace in the Bible and going to church every Sunday was just a ritual. I saw God in the trees as the sunlight filtered through the leaves and felt His breath in the breeze on the riverbank. Oh how I spiritually thirsted to know Him better. I studied Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and VERY briefly Sikhism. As I brooded over religious texts a thought out of somewhere came in my mind.”The day you are born you are that much closer to death”. My melancholy and longing often overwhelmed me and I wept often. I was spared bad sangat from the beginning.I was not popular and was a quiet studious student with above average grades…what you would call a nerd now. I missed the LSD drug hippie culture that was in full swing in the 70’s. I never developed bad habits and spent my evenings in the library.While my classmates were getting drunk, stoned and pregnant I got beaten up by a boy simply for not being ‘in’ enough with this crowd. Those were painful times. I had strange dreams of being chased on horseback through dark forests with only the moon as my guide the ennemy gaining on me. I would wake up in a sweat.I did not till much later have revealed to me what this meant. Singhs know exactly what I am talking about. The years passed. I was still spiritually unsettled. I read voraciously usually about history and religion. I read the Bhagwad Gita and some of Kabir’s works. My husband was a sincere devotee of Shivjee and Durga and had had darshan of both. He was more into bhagtee and less into the complicated rituals of … [ read more… ]
  8. Vaheguroo jee ka Khalsa Vaheguroo jee kee Fateh! Where can I find some katha in english on Saka Nankana Sahib? Vaheguroo jee ka Khalsa Vaheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  9. anyyyways, all intellectual interpretations aside, the picture is beautiful. The baba jee in the picture is Bhai Sahib Bharpoor Singh Jee from Surrey, BC. That picture was taken at the Naam Abhiyaas Kamaaee Samaagam in August last summer. He really is a chardi kala Gurmukh.
  10. what??! from what i've heard, sikhsangat only had about 2-300 members... UNTIL they joined W!N, which is when tons more people started joining to add up to a couple thousand members. That's what I've heard, and i can see why it would be true... i personally hadn't even HEARD of sikhsangat.com until they joined waheguroo network....
  11. here's some awesome pictures of bhagat pooran singh jee:
  12. i LOVE that picture of baba ji with the bairaagan Here's one of bhai sahib randhir singh jee... notice the resemblance :umm:
  13. japo > AwT phr a pehar is a time period of three hours... therefore 8 (aatth) pehars = 24 hours a day thanks Khalsa Fauji, but i was wondering if the word nivaasi was related to vaasi in any way.
