    Has Anyone Heard This Story

    WJKK WJKF I wrote this story a while back in a post but no one seemed to reply so I thought id make a topic. A few years back I was at a Gurdwara and there was one of the Sangat telling stories about Punjab, and about the amount of blood shed in Punjab from the times of our Gurus until now. He then told a story, which was from a few years back from Punjab. Im a bit sketchy on all the details as it was a few years back so please forgive me. In a Pind in Punjab, there was a tree which locals said gave a errie feeling when you go past it. They ask a Baba why this is. He explained that they should dig the ground where they tree is. The villages did and they found a bag full of human bones. They asked the Baba about this and he replied that these bones belonged to Sikhs who were fighting Mughals during Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji Maharajas’ time. The Mughals put the bones in a bag and left them. He told the Singhs to take the bones to a nearby village (I forgotten the reason why). The Singhs then preceded to the village, and went through a forest. Whilst walking, they heard a noise behind them and saw a Beautiful tall Singh dressed in white Bana. The Singh asked them if they have the bones of the soliders, to which they replied yes, and the Singh then said that he will take them. The group agreed and went into the opposite direction to the Singh. As soon as they turned around to see him again, he was gone. They went back to the Baba and explained the situation, the Baba said that When God wants to he will do it himself, and exaplined that it was Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji Maharaj who they saw and who took the remains of the Sikh soldiers with him. Has anyone heard of this story, or has the full story. Does anyone have any other stories like this? Phul Chuk Maff if I have made any mistakes at all. WJKK WJKF

    Aakhan Aoukhaa Saachaa Naao || Part 2

    Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh There was a Bhagat from Lahore called Chajju. One day at his door two labourers were stood outside. At the time it was raining. Bhagat Chajju looked at the labourers and asked why they were stood outside his door. They looked at Bhagatji and said that they work for a living outdoors doing labour. Their condition was such that when they didn't work, they didn't eat. They explained to Bhagatji that when it rains they don't find much work. As a consequence they had come to Bhagat Chajjuji's door in the hope of finding some work. Bhagatji invited them into his house to offer them work . He said not only will I feed you - sugar and koi - but I will pay you double your usual rate. Bhagatji offered 8 annas instead of the 4 annas the labourers were usually paid for a days work. Bhagatji then sat the two labourers down, gave them malas and said sit down and doing abhiyaas of Raam. At the end of the day Bhagatji fed the labourers and paid them 8 annas. He then told them come here daily and partake in this work and I will continue to pay and feed you in this way. The labourers looked at Bhagat Chajjuji and said this work is too difficult to do. We would rather lift and break stones than do hard manual labour than this work... Loose translation of Katha by Sant Gyani Baba Gurbachan Singh Ji Bhindranwale Why is it so hard?

    The Humble Saint - Sant Baba Shaam Singh Ji

    Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh One time Sant Baba Bishan Singh Ji, the 10th jathedhar of Satguru Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Damdami Taksal decided to visit Amritsar and in particular Sant Baba Shaam Singh Ji. Sant Baba Shaam Singh Ji was the kirtani of Sachkhand Sri Harmandir Sahib Ji who had spent over 90 years doing seva with his Sarandha. Sant Baba Bishan Singh Ji and the jatha had done darshan at Harmandir Sahib Ji and then began to make their way to the asthan of Santji. As they reached there they found an old singh cleaning the sewer/drain. They asked where Sant Baba Shaam Singh Ji was and were advised by the old Gursikh to go inside the asthan and sit down and Santji would be with them soon. The old Gursikh then did Panj ishnaan and went and sat in front of them. When he did this he was asked again that they wished to have darshan of Sant Baba Shaam Singh Ji - the old Gursikh relied that the vessel sat before them was Sant Baba Shaam Singh Ji. Waheguruji... May Maharaj bless with with such humility. Loose translation of Katha by Giani Ram Singh Ji Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh
  5. Bhai Harpal ji requested to Guru sahib to get bless with sewa. Guru sahib said sewa is very hard. But bhai ji insisted. Guru sahib said ok. Once Guru sahib saw a parrot, and asked bhai ji to bring that parrot to HIM. Bhai sahib said satbachan and went to the owner. The owner was a pathan, who knew that a Sikh would do anything for his Guru, so he said you won't be able to pay for it. But Bhai ji said he can give his life to get it. Pathan said ok, you have to give your sister in return. Bhai sahib said ok and went home. His mother was doing path, bhai sahib said "maa bani parhdi e". She said ha, bhai said "aaj bani te chaln da sama aa geya. Family agreed and bhai sahib went with his sister to pathan, Pathan said now I want your daughter as well. Bhai sahib said ok, sent his daughter and took the parrot. Bhai sahib went to Guru sahib, give the parrot and sat back near jorhe, without even explaiing how he got it, instead was praying Guru sahib, please forgive me, it took me so long, tuhade bachan manan layi" And pathan on the other side, asked girls to become his begams, Girls said they'll do anything, even janitorial work but not this and said : eh dil hai amanat di satguru di, tha tha te lagayea nai janda, ansi kite kaul nibhavge, nadia tar ke javange, ha, ansi rukhrha sham manavenge, saatho jagat manaeya nai janda eh dil hai amanat di satguru di, tha tha te lagayea nai janda, ansi duniya valon udaas hoye, ode charna de daas hoye, bhawein fail howe bhawein pass howe, piche kadam hataeya nai janda, eh dil hai amanat di satguru di, tha tha te lagayea nai janda, When pathan tried to touch them, he became blind and begged the girls to take him to Guru sahib. He went blind because of Bhai sahib's sacrifice and girls love & faith on guru sahib. They went to Guru sahib and he apologised. Sewak got passed in the examination and "nindak de moonh kale hoye". Guru sahib ji was very happy at Bhai ji, stood up when bhai sahib came & hugged him & asked bhai Harpal ji that he can get all of his wishes fulfilled, but Bhai sahib begged for below: mera sir tere charna ch howe, jadon meri jaan nikle jadon jaan nikle, jadon pran nikle From Sant Baba Balwant Singh ji urmur Tandewale Deewan "Satguru ki sewa 1"

    The Role Of The Dharamsala/gurudwara?

    Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh What do you think the role of the Dharamsala/Gurudwara Sahib is? What was the intended role as per puratan literature? What changes can we make as individuals to allow it to achieve these goals? Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh
  7. Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh, Has anyone read this book on Sri Zafarnama Sahib Ji? If so what did you make of it? Is it worth buying? The following is a book description on Amazon: Louis E. Fenech offers a compelling new examination of one of the only Persian compositions attributed to the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708): the Zafar-namah or 'Epistle of Victory.' Written as a masnavi, a Persian poem, this letter was originally sent to the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb (d. 1707) rebuking his most unbecoming conduct. Incredibly, Guru Gobind Singh's letter is included today within the Sikh canon, one of only a very small handful of Persian-language texts granted the status of Sikh scripture. As such, its contents are sung on special Sikh occasions. Perhaps equally surprising is the fact that the letter appears in the tenth Guru's book or the Dasam Granth in the standard Gurmukhi script (in which Punjabi is written) but retains its original Persian language, a vernacular few Sikhs know. Drawing out the letter's direct and subtle references to the Iranian national epic, the Shah-namah, and to Shaikh Sa'di's thirteenth-century Bustan, Fenech demonstrates how this letter served as a form of Indo-Islamic verbal warfare, ensuring the tenth Guru's moral and symbolic victory over the legendary and powerful Mughal empire. Through analysis of the Zafar-namah, Fenech resurrects an essential and intriguing component of the Sikh tradition: its Islamicate aspect. Gururakha, Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh

    Santji's Amazing Spiritual Avastha

    Wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh Sant Gyani Baba Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale whose whole life is dedicated to attaching people to the charankamal of Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. Waheguruji ਦਿੱਲੀ 7 ਜਨਵਰੀ 1986 ਨੂੰ ਅਚਾਨਕ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਆਪਣੇ ਇਕ ਨਿੱਜੀ ਦੋਸਤ ਰਾਮ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦ ਵਰਮਾ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਉਸ ਦੇ ਇਕ ਰਿਸ਼ਤੇਦਾਰ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ, ਜੋ ਕੋਕਾ ਕੋਲਾ ਬਣਾਉਣ ਵਾਲੀ ਫ਼ੈਕਟਰੀ ਦਾ ਮਾਲਕ ਸੀ, ਦੇ ਘਰ ਜਾਣ ਦਾ ਮੌਕਾ ਮਿਲਿਆ। ਮੇਰੇ ਦੋਸਤ ਰਾਮ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦ ਨੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਕਿ ਮੇਰੇ ਫੁੱਫੜ ਜੀ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਵਿਰੋਧੀ ਰਹੇ। ਜਦੋਂ ਅਸੀਂ ਉਸ ਦੇ ਦਰਵਾਜ਼ੇ ਕੋਲ ਪਹੁੰਚੇ, ਉਸ ਦੇ ਚਾਰ ਮੰਜ਼ਲ ਆਲੀਸ਼ਾਨ ਬੰਗਲੇ ਅੱਗੇ 3 ਸਕਿਉਰਿਟੀ ਗਾਰਡ ਖੜੇ ਸਨ। ਜਦੋਂ ਅਸੀਂ ਬੰਗਲੇ ਦੇ ਡਰਾਇੰਗ ਰੂਮ ਵਿੱਚ ਬੈਠੇ ਤਾਂ ਸਾਹਮਣੇ 8 ਫੁੱਟ ਦੀ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੀ ਤਸਵੀਰ ਦੇਖ ਕੇ ਮੇਰੇ ਪੈਰਾਂ ਹੇਠੋਂ ਜ਼ਮੀਨ ਨਿਕਲ ਗਈ। ਜਦੋਂ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਅਸੀਂ ਤਸਵੀਰ ਬਾਰੇ ਗੱਲ ਕੀਤੀ ਤਾਂ ਉਹ ਉਚੀ-ਉਚੀ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਿਆ। ਮੇਰੇ ਸਾਹਮਣੇ 78 ਸਾਲ ਦੇ ਬਜ਼ੁਰਗ ਦੇ ਰੋਣੇ ਨੇ ਹੋਰ ਵੀ ਹੈਰਾਨੀ ਪਾ ਦਿੱਤੀ, ਉਸ ਨੇ ਜੋ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਸੁਣਾਈ, ਉਹ ਇਸ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਹੈ ਸ਼ਹਿਰ ਲੁਧਿਆਣੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਖੇਤੀ ਨਾਲ ਸਬੰਧਤ ਲੋਹੇ ਦਾ ਸਮਾਨ ਬਣਾਉਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਨਾਂ ਦੇ ਬੰਦੇ ਦਾ ਕਾਰੋਬਾਰ ਸੀ। ਉਸ ਦੀ ਹਵੇਲੀ ਨਾਲ ਪਿੰਡ-ਪਿੰਡ ਕੱਪੜੇ ਵੇਚਣ ਵਾਲਾ ਇਕ ਗਰੀਬ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਰਹਿੰਦਾ ਸੀ, ਜੋ ਨਿੱਕਾ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਟਕਸਾਲ ਵਿੱਚ ਰਹਿੰਦਾ ਸੀ। ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲਾ ਦੂਰ-ਦੁਰਾਡੇ ਜਾਣ ਵੇਲੇ 2-2 ਦਿਨ ਇਸ ਕੋਲ ਰਹਿ ਕੇ ਰੱਬ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਦਾ। ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਦੀ ਘਰ ਵਾਲੀ ਜਦੋਂ ਰਾਤ ਨੂੰ ਇਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦ੍ਵੋਨਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਉਚੀ-ਉਚੀ ਆਵਾਜ਼ ਵਿੱਚ ਰੱਬ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਦੇ ਸੁਣਾਈ ਤਾਂ ਬੜਾ ਖੁਸ਼ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਅਤੇ ਇਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦੋਹਾਂ ਤੇ ਬੜੀ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਰੱਖਦੀ, ਜਦੋਂ ਕਿ ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਦਾ ਕੰਮ ਵਿੱਚ ਜ਼ਿਆਜਾ ਰੁੱਝਿਆ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ ਧਾਰਮਿਕ ਪਾਸੇ ਕੋਈ ਬਹੁਤਾ ਖਿਆਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਸੀ। ਵਿਨੋਦ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਦੀ ਘਰ ਵਾਲੀ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਉਮਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਕਾਫ਼ੀ ਵੱਡੀ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ ਇਹ ਦੋਵੇਂ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਮਾਤਾ ਜੀ ਕਹਿੰਦੇ ਸਨ। ਉਸ ਸਮੇਂ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲਾ ਅਤਿ ਦੀ ਗਰੀਬੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਸੀ, ਸਾਰੇ ਭੈਣ-ਭਰਾ ਮੂੰਹ ਮੋੜ ਗਏ ਅਤੇ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਧਾਰਮਿਕ ਸਥਾਨਾਂ ਤੇ ਪੈਦਲ ਹੀ ਜਾਣਾ ਪੈਂਦਾ ਸੀ। ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਦੋਸਤ ਨੂੰ ਇਕ ਅਜਿਹਾ ਸਾਈਕਲ ਲੈਣ ਬਾਰੇ ਪੁੱਛਿਆ ਜਿਸ ਦਾ ਮੁੱਲ ਉਸ ਸਮੇਂ 16 ਰੁਪਏ ਸੀ। ਪਰ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੀ ਮਾੜੀ ਮਾਲੀ ਹਾਲਤ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ 16 ਰੁਪਏ ਤੋਂ ਅਥਮਰੱਥਤਾ ਪ੍ਰਗਟਾਈ। ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੀ ਮਾਂ ਬੋਲ ਬੈਠੀ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੇ ਇਹ ਗੱਲ ਸੁਣ ਲਈ। ਉਹ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦਾ ਸਾਧ-ਬਾਣਾ ਅਤੇ ਰੱਬ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਦਾ ਰਹਿਣ ਕਰਕਾ ਬਹੁਤ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਰੱਖਦੀ ਸੀ। ਉਹ ਨੇ ਬਿਨਾਂ ਦੇਰੀ ਕੀਤੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਘਰੋਂ 16 ਰੁਪਏ ਲਿਆ ਕੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਅੱਗੇ ਰੱਖ ਦਿੱਤੇ ਤਾਂ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਬੜੀ ਹਲੀਮੀ ਨਾਲ ਨਾਂਹ ਕਰ ਦਿੱਤੀ। ਪਰ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਅਤੇ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੀ ਮਾਤਾ ਨੇ ਜ਼ੋਰ ਦੇ ਕੇ ਉਸ ਦੀ ਜੇਬ ਵਿੱਚ ਪੈਸੇ ਪਾ ਦਿੱਤੇ। ਇਹ ਘਟਨਾ 1964 ਦੀ ਹੈ, ਸਮਾਂ ਬਦਲ ਗਿਆ। ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ 1967 ਵਿੱਚ ਲੁਧਿਆਣਾ ਸ਼ਹਿਰ ਛੱਡ ਕੇ ਕਲਕੱਤੇ ਚਲਾ ਗਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦਾ ਉਸ ਜਗ੍ਹਾ ਆਉਣਾ-ਜਾਣਾ ਖ਼ਤਮ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ। ਉਧਰ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਦੀ ਲੜਕੀ ਮਈਆਂ ਦਿੱਲੀ ਦੇ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਤੇ ਪੋਤੇ ਅਸ਼ਵਨੀ ਕੁਮਾਰ ਨਾਲ ਵਿਆਹੀ ਗਈ। ਉਸ ਦੇ ਘਰ ਪੁੱਤਰ ਨੇ ਜਨਮ ਲਿਆ। ਉਸ ਦਾ ਨਾਮ ਸੰਦੀਪ ਰੱਖਿਆ ਗਿਆ। ਜਦੋਂ ਸੰਦੀਪ 11 ਸਾਲ ਦੀ ਉਮਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਸੀ ਤਾਂ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਦਿਮਾਗ ਦਾ ਕੈਂਸਰ (ਬਰੇਨ ਟਿਊਮਨ) ਹੋ ਗਿਆ, ਜਿਸ ਦਾ ਪਹਿਲਾ ਬੰਬਈ ਅਤੇ ਫਿਰ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਤੋਂ ਇਲਾਜ ਕਰਵਾਇਆ ਗਿਆ। 2 ਸਾਲ ਇਲਾਜ ਚੱਲਿਆ, ਅਖ਼ੀਰ ਡਾਕਟਰਾਂ ਨੇ ਕਹਿ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਕਿ ਇਹ ਬੱਚਾ ਵੱਧ ਤੋਂ ਵੱਧ ਸਿਰਫ਼ 3 ਸਾਲ ਜਿਊਂਦਾ ਰਹੇਗਾ, ਸ਼ਾਇਦ ਇਸ ਬੱਚੇ ਦਾ ਅੰਤ ਬਹੁਤ ਦਰਦਨਾਕ ਹੋਵੇ। ਉਸ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਘਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਬਹੁਤ ਜਗਰਾਤੇ ਅਤੇ ਬਹੁਤ ਪੁੰਨਦਾਨ ਕਰਾਏ ਗਏ, ਰਿਸ਼ੀਕੇਸ਼ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਬੜੇ ਰਿਸ਼ੀਆਂ ਤੋਂ ਅਸ਼ੀਰਵਾਦ ਲਈ। ਬੜੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਦੇ ਘਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਪੈਰ ਪੁਆਏ, ਬੜੀਆਂ ਸੇਵਾਵਾਂ ਕੀਤੀਆਂ। ਦੂਰ-ਦੂਰ, ਜਿਸ ਸੰਤ ਦੀ ਗੱਲ ਹੁੰਦੀ, ਜਾ ਪੈਰ ਫੜੇ। ਪਰ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀਆਂ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਰਿਪੋਰਟਾਂ ਦਿਨੋ ਦਿਨ ਮਾੜੀਆਂ ਹੀ ਆਉਂਦੀਆਂ ਰਹੀਆਂ। ਅਖ਼ੀਰ ਕੈਂਸਰ 82% ਤੱਕ ਆਉਣਾ ਕਬਜ਼ਾ ਕਰ ਗਿਆ। ਜਦੋਂ ਕਦੇ ਬੀਮਾਰੀ ਨਾਲ ਕੁਰਲਾਉਂਦਾ ਤਾਂ ਮਾਂ-ਪਿਉ ਤਾਂ ਕੀ, ਘਰ ਦੀਆਂ ਕੰਧਾਂ ਵੀ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਜਾਂਦੀਆਂ। ਸਾਨੂੰ ਕਰਨਾਟਕ ਵਿੱਚ ਇਕ ਬਹੁਤ ਉਘੇ ਸੰਤ ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਦੀ ਦੱਸ ਪਈ। ਦੱਸਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਕਿ ਜੇ ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਖੁਸ਼ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਸਭੇ ਬੀਮਾਰੀਆਂ ਚੁੱਕੀਆਂ ਜਾਣਗੀਆਂ। ਪਰ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ 60 ਤੋਂ ਉਪਰ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਸਿਰਫ਼ 2 ਸਾਲ ਵਿੱਚ ਮਿਲ ਚੁੱਕਿਆ ਸੀ। ਪਰ ਕੋਈ ਅਸਰ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੋਇਆ ਸੀ। ਪਰ ਡੁੱਬਦੇ ਨੂੰ ਤਿਨਕੇ ਦਾ ਸਹਾਰਾ ਦੇ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਇਹ ਸਾਰਾ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਕੋਲ ਪਹੁੰਚ ਗਿਆ। ਉਥੇ ਹਜ਼ਾਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਭੀੜ ਹੋਣ ਕਰਕੇ ਤੀਸਰੇ ਦਿਨ ਉਸ ਨੂੰ ਮਿਲਣ ਦੀ ਵਾਰੀ ਆਈ। ਉਸ ਨੇ ਬੜੇ ਆਦਰ ਮਾਣ ਨਾਲ ਇਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦੀ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਸੁਣੀ ਅਤੇ 101 ਗਊਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਪੱਠੇ ਅਤੇ 51 ਪੰਡਿਤਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਖੀਰ ਦਾ ਪ੍ਰਸ਼ਾਦ ਖੁਆਉਣ ਅਤੇ ਗੰਗਾ ਦਾ ਇਸ਼ਨਾਨ ਕਰਨ ਦੀ ਹਦਾਇਤ ਦੇ ਦਿੱਤੀ ਅਤੇ ਪੂਰਾ ਯਕੀਨ ਦਿਵਾਇਆ ਕਿ ਬੱਚਾ 100 ਸਾਲ ਤੱਕ ਜੀਵੇਗਾ। ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਕੁਝ ਆਸਾਂ ਤੱਕ ਕੇ ਵਾਪਸ ਮੁੜਿਆ। ਸਭ ਕੁਝ ਉਸੇ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ ਪਰ ਜਦੋਂ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਰਿਪੋਰਟ ਆਈ ਤਾਂ ਅੱਗੇ ਨਾਲੋਂ ਵੀ ਮਾੜੀ ਸੀ। ਕੈਂਸਰ ਹੋਰ ਅੰਗਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਵੀ ਵਧ ਗਿਆ ਸੀ। ਅਖ਼ੀਰ ਸਮਾਂ ਬੀਤਿਆਂ, ਡਾਕਟਰਾਂ ਦੇ ਕਹਿਣ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਪੂਰੇ ਤਿੰਨ ਸਾਲਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਕੈਂਸਰ 93% ਤੇ ਪਹੁੰਚ ਘਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਬੱਚਾ ਨੀਮ-ਬੇਹੋਸੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਚਲਿਆ ਗਿਆ। ਇਹ ਗੱਲ 1983 ਦੀ ਹੈ। ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਅਚਾਨਕ ਹੀ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀ ਨਾਨੀ (ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ) ਨੇ ਬੱਚੇ ਨੂੰ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਕੋਲ ਲਿਜਾਣ ਦੀ ਜ਼ਿੱਦ ਕੀਤੀ। ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦਿਨਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੀ ਪੂਰੀ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਚੜ੍ਹ ਮੱਚੀ ਹੋਈ ਸੀ। ਜਦੋਂ ਇਹ ਗੱਲ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਦਾਦੇ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਨੇ ਸੁਣੀ ਤਾਂ ਉਹ ਅੱਗ-ਬਬੂਲਾ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੂੰ ਬਦਮਾਸ਼ ਕਾਤਲ ਕਹਿ ਕੇ ਗਾਲ੍ਹਾਂ ਕੱਢਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਿਆ। ਪਰ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਤੇ ਕੋਈ ਅਸਰ ਨਾ ਹੋਇਆ। ਉਸ ਦੀ ਆਪਣੀ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਪ੍ਰਤੀ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਸੀ। ਅਖ਼ੀਰ 3-4 ਦਿਨਾਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਦੇ ਜ਼ੋਰ ਦੇਣ ਤੇ ਸਾਰੇ ਮੰਨ ਗਏ, ਪਰ ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਨੇ ਇਹ ਸ਼ਰਤ ਰੱਖ ਲਈ ਕਿ ਉਹ ਨਹੀਂ ਜਾਵੇਗਾ। ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਦੇ ਤਿੰਨੇ ਮੁੰਡੇ, ਨੂੰਹ ਅਤੇ ਸੰਦੀਪ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਨਾਨਾ-ਨਾਨੀ ਅਤੇ ਮਾਮਾ-ਮਾਮੀ ਸਾਰੇ ਜਣੇ ਅਕਾਲ ਤ੍ਰਖ਼ਤ ਤੇ ਆ ਗਏ। ਬੱਚਾ ਨੀਮ ਬੇਹੋਸ਼ ਸੀ। ਭਾਵੇਂ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੂੰ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੂੰ ਦੇਖੇ 26 ਸਾਲ ਹੋ ਗਏ ਸਨ, ਪਰ ਉਹ ਅਖ਼ਬਾਰਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਫ਼ੋਟੋ ਦੇਖਦੀ ਰਹਿੰਦੀ ਸੀ। ਜਦੋਂ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੇ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਆਪਣੀ ਪਹਿਚਾਣ ਕਰਵਾਈ ਅਤੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਦੇ ਦੋਸਤ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਬਾਰੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੂੰ ਪਛਾਨਣ ਵਿੱਚ ਇਕ ਮਿੰਟ ਵੀ ਨਾ ਲਾਇਆ, ਬੜੇ ਆਦਰ-ਸਤਿਕਾਰ ਨਾਲ ਬਿਠਾਇਆ ਗਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਬਦਾਮਾਂ ਨਾਲਾ ਦੁੱਧ ਪੇਸ਼ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ। ਇਸ ਦੌਰਾਨ ਪਹਿਲਾ ਆਈ ਹੋਰ ਸੰਗਤ ਵੀ ਬੈਠੀ ਸੀ, ਹਰ ਕੋਈ ਆਪਣੇ ਦੁਖੜੇ ਸੁਣਾ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ, ਜੋ ਘਰੇਲੂ ਝਗੜੇ ਸਨ। ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਦਾ ਨਿਪਟਾਰਾ ਤਾਂ ਉਹ ਤੁਰੰਤ ਹੀ ਕਰ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ ਅਤੇ ਜੋ ਬੀਮਾਰੀ ਨਾਲ ਪੀੜਤ ਸਨ, ਉਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਰੱਬ ਦੇ ਭਾਣੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਰਹਿ ਕੇ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਣ ਨੂੰ ਕਹਿ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ। ਇਸੇ ਦੌਰਾਨ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਬੈਠੀ ਸੰਗਤ ਦੇ ਦੁੱਖ-ਸੁੱਖ ਨਿਪਟਾ ਕੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਦੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਨੂੰ ਇਕ ਪਾਸੇ ਕਰ ਲਿਆ। ਕੁਝ ਚਿਰ ਤੇਜਿੰਦਰ ਸਿੰਘ ਬਾਰੇ ਗੱਲਾਂ ਕੀਤੀਆਂ ਅਤੇ ਬਾਅਦ ਵਿੱਚ ਆਉਣ ਦਾ ਕਾਰਨ ਪੁੱਛਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਨੈਨੀ ਦੇਵੀ ਉਚੀ ਉਚੀ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਈ। ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਾਲ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਮਾਤਾ-ਪਿਤਾ ਅਤੇ ਸਾਰਾ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਿਆ। ਸੰਤ ਕੁਝ ਗੰਭੀਰ ਹੋ ਗਏ ਅਤੇ ਸਭ ਨੂੰ ਦਿਲਾਸਾ ਦਿੱਤਾ। ਸੰਦੀਪ ਦੇ ਚਾਚੇ ਨੇ ਸਾਰ ਵਿਥਿਆ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਦੇ ਅੱਗੇ ਖੋਲ੍ਹ ਸੁਣਾਈ ਅਤੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਕਿ ਅਸੀਂ ਸਭ ਸੰਤਾਂ-ਮਹਾਂਪੁਰਸ਼ਾਂ ਦੇ ਬਚਨ ਮੰਨੇ ਅਤੇ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਤੌਰ ਤੇ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਤੱਕ ਗਏ ਹਾਂ ਪਰ ਬੱਚਾ ਅਖ਼ੀਰਲੀ ਸਟੇਜ ਵਿੱਚ ਹੈ। ਸਿਰਫ਼ ਇਕ ਜਾਂ ਦੋ ਮਹੀਨੇਅਤੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਫਿਰ ਰੋਣ ਲੱਗ ਪਈ। ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲਾ ਕੁਝ ਚਿਰ ਚੁੱਪ ਰਿਹਾ ਅਤੇ ਬੱਚੇ ਨੂੰ, ਜੋ ਨੀਮ ਬੇਹੋਸੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਸੀ, ਨੂੰ ਚੁੱਕ ਕੇ ਗੋਦੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਬਿਠਾ ਲਿਆ। ਉਸ ਨੇ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਮੱਥੇ ਤੇ ਕੁਝ ਚਿਰ ਹੱਥ ਰੱਖਿਆ, ਫਿਰ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੇ ਨਾਂ ਦੇ ਇਕ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੂੰ ਆਵਾਜ਼ ਮਾਰੀ ਅਤੇ ਕਿਹਾ ਇਸ ਨੂੰ ਸਰੋਵਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਲੈ ਜਾਵ ਅਤੇ ਬੁੱਕਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਓਨਾ ਚਿਰ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਸਿਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਪਾਣੀ ਪਾਓ, ਜਿੰਨਾ ਚਿਰ ਤੁਸੀਂ ਸੁਖਮਨੀ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦਾ ਪਾਠ ਪੂਰਾ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰ ਲੈਂਦੇ। ਜਦੋਂ ਪਾਠ ਦਾ ਭੋਗ ਪਵੇ, ਫੇਰ ਦਰਬਾਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਅਰਦਾਸ ਕਰ ਅਤੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਨੂੰ ਹਦਾਇਤ ਕੀਤੀ ਕਿ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਮਿੱਤ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਸਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਹੀ ਇਕ ਸਿੰਘ ਦੇ ਘਰ ਕਰਨਾ। ਮਲ-ਮੂਤਰ ਜਾਣ ਸਮੇਂ ਪਾਠੀ ਸਿੰਘ ਏਨਾ ਉਚੀ ਪਾਠ ਕਰਨ ਕਿ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਕੰਨੀਂ ਸੁਣਿਆ ਜਾਵੇ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਸਿੰਘ ਨਿਰਮਲ ਸਿੰਘ ਨੂੰ ਕਿਹਾ ਕਿ ਪਾਠੀ ਉਹ ਲਵੋ, ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ 25-25 ਵਾਲ ਸੰਥਿਆ ਕੀਤੀ ਹੋਵੇ। ਸਾਰਾ ਕੁਝ ਇਸੇ ਤਰ੍ਹਾਂ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ। ਤੀਜੇ ਦਿਨ ਭੋਗ ਪੈ ਗਿਆ। ਭੋਗ ਪੈਣ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਸਾਰਾ ਟੱਬਰ ਫੇਰ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਕੋਲ ਆਇਆ ਅਤੇ ਭਿੰਡਰਾਂਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਨੂੰ ਕਿਹਾ ਕਿ ਅੱਜ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਇਸ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੇ ਸਿਰ ਦੇ ਵਾਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਕੱਟਣੇ। ਅਗਰ ਗੁਰੂ ਰਾਮਦਾਸ ਜੀ ਨੇ ਚਾਹਿਆ ਤਾਂ ਇਸ ਦੀ ਬੀਮਾਰੀ ਦੂਰ ਕਰ ਦੇਣਗੇ। ਨੈਨਾਂ ਦੇਵੀ ਤੋਂ ਬਗੈਰ ਬਾਕੀ ਸਾਰਾ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਮਾੜਾ-ਮੋਟਾ ਮਨ ਵਿੱਚ ਵਿਸ਼ਵਾਸ ਕਰਕੇ ਵਾਪਸ ਮੁੜਿਆ ਪਰ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀ ਨਾਨੀ ਨੈਨਾ ਦੇਵੀ ਪੂਰੀ ਖੁਸ਼ ਸੀ, ਜਦੋਂ ਇਸ ਟੱਬਰ ਦੀਆਂ ਦੋਨੇ ਕਾਰਾਂ ਪਾਣੀਪਤ ਲੰਘੀਆਂ ਤਾਂ ਬੱਚਾ ਇਕ ਦਿਨ ਉਠ ਖਲੋਤਾ ਤੇ ਜਿਹੜਾ ਬੱਚੇ ਪਿਛਲੇ 7 ਮਹੀਨਿਆਂ ਤੋਂ ਗੁਲੂਕੋਜ਼ ਤੇ ਜਿਉਂਦਾ ਰਹਿ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ, ਉਸ ਨੇ ਖਾਣ ਨੂੰ ਮੰਗਿਆ। ਸਾਰੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਖੁਸ਼ੀ ਦੀ ਲਹਿਰ ਦੌੜ ਗਈ। ਬੱਸ ਫੇਰ ਕੀ, ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀਆਂ ਹਰਕਤਾਂ ਦਿਨੋ-ਦਿਨ ਬਦਲਦੀਆਂ ਗਈਆਂ ਅਤੇ 23 ਦਿਨੋਂ ਪਿਛੋਂ ਜਦੋਂ ਬੱਚੇ ਦੀ ਰਿਪੋਰਟ ਆਉਣੀ ਸੀ ਤਾਂ ਡਾਕਟਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਟੀਮ ਮੂੰਹ ਵਿੱਚ ਉਂਗਲਾਂ ਦੇ ਰਹੀ ਸੀ, ਜਦੋਂ ਸਾਰੀ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਦੱਸੀ ਗਈ, ਬੱਸ ਫੇਰ ਤਾਂ ਸਾਰੇ ਇਕ ਦੂਜੇ ਵੱਲ ਤੱਕ ਰਹੇ ਸਨ। ਬਾਰੂ ਮੱਲ ਕਹਿ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ ਕਿ ਮੈਂ ਹੁਣ ਪਛਤਾ ਰਿਹਾ ਹਾਂ ਕਿ ਉਸ ਸਮੇਂ ਇਹੋ ਜਿਹੇ ਮਹਾਂਪੁਰਸ਼ਾਂ ਦੇ ਮੈਂ ਕਿਉਂ ਨਾ ਦਰਸ਼ਨ ਕਰ ਸਕਿਆ। ਜਿਹੜਾ ਸਾਡਾ ਬੱਚਾ ਕਈ ਸੈਂਕੜੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ, ਦਾਨ-ਪੁੰਨ ਕਰਨ ਦੇ ਬਾਵਜੂਦ, ਭੈਣੀ ਨਾਥ ਦੀ ਸ਼ਰਨ ਗਏ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਅਤੇ ਇੰਗਲੈਂਡ ਤੱਕ ਡਾਕਟਰੀ ਇਲਾਜ ਹੋਣ ਤੋਂ ਬਾਅਦ ਮੌਤ ਦੇ ਮੂੰਹ ਦੇ ਵੱਲ ਵਧ ਰਿਹਾ ਸੀ, ਅੱਜ ਸਾਡਾ ਉਹੀ ਬੱਚਾ ਮੈਡੀਕਲ ਦੀ ਪੜ੍ਹਾਈ ਵਿੱਚ ਫਸਟ ਆ ਰਿਹਾ ਹੈ

Says Nanak, God has inspired me to know this. ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਨ ਪਾਈਐ ਭਾਈ ॥੪॥੫॥੭॥ Bin gur mukaṯ na pā▫ī▫ai bẖā▫ī. ||4||5||7|| Without the Guru, liberation is not obtained, O Siblings of Destiny. ||4||5||7|| The above shabad starts off by telling us to imagine the image or picture of the guru when meditating ! If we think, how can we do this if we didn't have any paintings or pictures that people claim are false and fabricated ? More importantly, what exactly does the term 'Guru' mean in the shabad ? Read carefully, does it mean Guru-teacher,like ten gurus or Guru- the transcendent lord ? One has to look at this shabad very closely and carefully to get the real message in my opinion.

    Make Me Blind

    MAKE ME BLIND In the times of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, there was a very poor gursikh who lived in a hut alone. This gursikh was blind and had grown to love the guru from what he had heard. As he couldn’t travel anywhere he would find out who has gone from his village to see the guru. He would ask them, “What does the Guru look like? What weapons does he keep? What stories does he tell?” Each person would reply, “I cannot explain in words.” One night he could not sleep, as his thoughts were focused on meeting the guru. He longed so much to see the beautiful Mukh of Guru Maharaaj. He could not take it any longer and felt angry at himself for being blind. “Guru Ji, I am such a dirty sinner, I am unworthy of your darshan. I do not know what countless sins I have committed for me to suffer without you.” At this moment Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji awoke from Samadhi, and told his Sikhs to get the horses ready to leave immediately. The gursikh felt helpless and began to cry tearing his hut apart. He wanted to go to see his guru; he then made up his mind that he would go by foot and allow the guru to guide him. He packed some food and set off in the dark. On his way he tripped and fell hurting himself badly. His thoughts remained on meeting his guru as he lay on the ground. He suddenly felt two strong arms lift him up to his feet, and he heard a voice. “I have come, my beloved. I could not sleep without doing your darshan, I felt my heart pulling me towards you and I had to come.” When the blind sikh heard this he fell to the guru’s feet and could not contain himself. Guru ji again lifted him to him feet and said, “the home of Guru Nanak contains everything, ask of what you will.” “Guru Ji all that I ask of is that my eyes may work and have your beautiful darshan.” Guru ji smiled and kissed him on both eyes. When he opened them, he fell at Guru Ji’s feet upon seeing him and wept at Guru Ji’s feet. He stared at Guru Ji in amazement for some time. “Beloved I must go now, it is amritvela and the sangat will be waiting.” “ Guru Ji I cannot live without your Darshan now, what will I do?” Guru Ji replied, “The house of Guru Nanak again offers what you ask of it, one more thing.” The gursikh fell to the floor and said, “ Guru Ji if you are going to give me one more thing, then please take these eyes away as I wish not to see anything ever again after having your darshan.” A tear dropped down Guru Ji’s cheek as he granted the final wish.
  14. Guru Har Krishan Sahib Ji and the Brahman While Guru Ji was at Panjokhara and mediating on God, a Sikh came and told him of a proud Brahman who was in the neighbourhood. The Brahman had asked the Guru’s name and learned that it was Satguru Sri Guru Har Krishan Sahib Ji. Hearing this the Brahman became very angry and said, ‘The poet of the Bhagavat Gita, whom no one can equal, called God merely Krishan, and the Guru calls himself Sri Har Krishan, as if he thinks himself superior to Krishan. If he be such a Guru let him come and translate the Gita with me’. Guru Ji replied to this Sikh, ‘ The eyes of understanding are very good, but the cataract of pride so blindeth them that they cannot see God’s way. The proud think all persons beneath them.’ The Sikh however, prevailed on the Guru to allow the Brahman to come to him. When the Brahman came he did not salute the Guru, but unceremoniously sat down in his presence. He then said, ‘Thou who call thyself Sri Har Krishan, must be greater than the God Krishan. Translate the Gita for a little while with me’. Guru Ji replied, ‘The Brahmans of the present day are not deeply read. They are great talkers and arguers, and are deteriorating everyday; and in the future they will have even less religion that they have now. What the Brahmans know is not real knowledge, and they are strangers to God. I have not read the Gita, and were I to translate it with you, you would say that I was some rich man’s son who had a private tutor, whereas I should translate by my spiritual power. Go and bring some ignorant rustic to discuss with you and when you have brought him, I will speak to you.’ The Brahman went and brought an ignorant water carrier called Chhajju from the nearest village. The Guru looked at him full in face and said, ‘Thou hast become a great divinity scholar. Now discuss the meaning of the Shastars with this Brahman’. The Brahman and the water carrier began to discuss accordingly, and the water carrier gave such learned replies, that the Brahman stood in astonished silence. The questions and replies related to Hindu theology. The pandit became convinced that Guru Ji had infused his supernatural power into the water carrier. He accordingly begged Guru Ji’s pardon for the unceremonious manner in which he had approached him. The Brahman added, ‘Thou art really the holy God, Krishan. Make me thy disciple’. Dhan Dhan Satguru Sri Guru Har Krishan Sahib Ji Maharaj, the King of Kings, the Saint of Saints and the Healer of all.

  18. I hate to write this....coz I am nobody to say that....but after reading comments on this I feel really out of everything......feel like something inside me is tearing apart...... All Guru ji's never had a normal materialistic type "husband wife" relations......all Guru ji's were born because of "simran" and "sewa" done by mata ji's.........and the physical body was created by "maya" and Akaal purkh ji's jot entered the physical body after it was born............ all Guru sahiban were above maya or all gun/avgun of maya.....For eg. Guru Nanak Dev ji gave ilaichi parshaad to bebe Nanaki ji after she asked for a child for Mata Sulakhani ji....then Mata Ganga ji did sewa of Baba Budha ji for Guru Hargobind Singh sahib ji......then Guru Gobind Singh ji asked Mata Sunder Kaur ji to do sewa of sangat to get "laal"..... .......now there are no proofs on whatever is posted above ....but it's upto every individual how much they know their beloved Guru ji.... Mods please do lock this if it turns to negative side... bhul chuk maaf
  19. To begin: Why do I post stuff like this: Most are scared not of 'death' but of a 'charge' for which they do 'time' knowing 'law I know with god's will I can always beat the charge; the only alternative is to kill me, which is w.e To start The facts: 1. System exists with our consent. 2. The system is based on a lie. 3. A lie always has some truth in it 4. A lie cannot ever win against the truth 5. A truth is a more efficient and stronger version of a lie (read on this is an edit in ref. to a point about system can't fight itself and a point later on at end of situation section). Preamble: The real rulers and elites are those with IMF, world bank, etc. the ones who control money. Countries using a fiat currency are by definition bankrupt, as their currency is not backed by anything. This is why they freely give away their wares, and have people signing up as wards of a corporation (non-living entity). A corporation does not have to be commercial in nature. Therefore, aiming at the government is not the long target but is the main one to do. With Raaj you can control your financial system. There is not a government conspiracy, any conspiracy is at a much-much higher level. (no conspiracy, bankers know how money works i.e just a signature but just keep it hidden from public, and restrict banks from exhanging promisorry notes for 'dollars' as an example) TL;DR Government doesn't rule, and while taking down alone is an effort; using even peaceful but offensive methods (prosecution, liens, etc.) numbers much higher than most terrorist cells are not required (3-4 per town/district targeting highest people). However, just like insurgencies mass support is required and the more the merrier. The knowledge must be spread, or you turn into high-value easy to take-down targets yourselves. Section 1: The Government: 1. If we analyze the government we see that the shield of ignorance cast over our eyes, is on their eyes as well. I would doubt if cm's knew about the real nature of law, or even the Indian constitution as India being a very connected, and young country has not had time to build a political class that is socially separated from the people the same way as Canada for example. The rural nature of the country could also account for this. (i.e governmental workers are much more known and connected to poplace than other places) (apne are with them). TL;DR they are not smarter than you. 2. The untouchability the higher-ups feel will put them in legal trouble, as they may they do not need to reply to legal notices. 3. They are incompetent. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Principle 4. While they are corrupt and incompetent, they are not knowingly working against themselves. I.e will not purposely promote duffars if they can help it. 5. They are already selfish people, with corrupt interests and 'There is no honor among thieves'. Easy to make them fight against each other. See 6 6. The system, (government) is designed like any corporation, with limited liability in mind. However, you are ALWAYS personally liable for any crimes you commit. See 7 for why this is important. 7. It is the default course of action, to discard a worker who is too expensive in up-keep (i.e scandals, too much cases against, liens, etc.) 8. Previous cases etc. have not worked because the system is designed to handle small amounts of dis-content. 9. Channels to vent dis-content and dis-arm it exist in all places no exceptions (all countries). (I.e regulatory bodies, de facto statutory courts, etc.) 10. These are only to mis-lead, and mis-direct people in order to dissuade them from acknowledging and realizing their own range (i.e can target top to bottom, anyone, anytime, everywhere). (Shastar Vidhiya: Understand Range) 11. System is designed to function regardless of leader-ship changes, and power is spread throughout to mitigate disaster’s such Indira/Rajiv killings. Strategy: An armed populace (both knowledge, and physical) who is able to overwhelm the walls of the system is the best course of action. This group must be ever open, and expanding in order to prevent a complete clamp/stamp down of it. A traditional structure of intelligent leaders, and dumbed down recruits will not work as each must be able to to conquer alone. (sava lakh seh ek). Cannot discount value of moral victories, and structures must be in place in order to train new people who join as it is much harder to teach a person gyan than it is to load rockets, and bullets. The system has worked by being rigid and un-moving, a principle that has earned it respect and fear in the eyes of people; it is not designed to be able to counter a threat which is directly a more refined version of itself i.e using focused over-whelming force, to destroy leaders while sparing followers who are not immediate threat. They themselves after slowly having their turtle break away, will submit and come to you giving you rule. At thatpoint, it is up to the Sikh to make correct decision based on gurmat. An example of this is, Baba Baghel Singh and Delhi. Situation: The MO of government has changed from being overwhelmingly based on violence, as it runs contrary to the myths and assumptions this society is based on. Also, a west vs. easy dichotomy is there with India acting alone but wanting/needing to stay on west's side and vice-versa. They play off each other, India acting a bit nicer, west a bit meaner to give a world-wide view of 'democracy'. I hope my points have come across, I'm tired and I understand what my next correct actions have to be (hopefully). Past that, I hope you understand you have to start in your own neighborhood, in order to gain skills, experience, and people. Realize everything is connected, and that an ounce of freedom in Canada is worth a pound elsewhere. --- The system is the same everywhere, same structure same EVERYTHING. Everything, is connected so breaking it here, breaks it elsewhere. However, we don't have to free the world to free the Khalsa (or The Punjab) as we are people of unlimited liability free in their actions and therefore able to have focus, and vision. The system, is more like a hammer able only to strike out at random, and the actions people within that structure are able to take are limited by: 1. their own morals vs. situation 2. their posts 3. public support, etc. We don't need the support of the public, or any of that as Truth always wins vs. lies. -- When I said before that system is not designed to win against a better version of itself, I meant that a lie always has some truth in it, but can never stand up to the whole thing. VJKVJF Can't find original white paper anymore read it a few months ago: http://apdforum.com/en_GB/article/rmiap/articles/online/features/2012/04/05/india-terror-strategy edit - this may be http://journals.hil.unb.ca/index.php/jcs/article/view/4293/4888 what I read not sure now, but yea just google counter-insurgency doctrine to see how they will deal with this stuff. Paper details here: kept at bottom to improve readability of my own points: which uses a four point strategy for counter-insurgency: 1. Suspend demo gov. start president rule Reason: Respect/Fear from stable centre rule, as well as the obvious things (deploy force, etc.) because of internal processes see 11. 2. Flood area with security forces Reason: Forces severely under-budgeted, under-equipped, and under-trained. Do nothing more than resort to thuggery, and eventually something happens. Also, fun-times for commanders and show of force to rest of public for respect/fear in order to win support for continued budget increases. Third point, to limit AO of insurgents see point 3 3. Target Militant Leaders but spare followers Reason: Causes dis-array, and lowers morale as often the most knowledgeable ones are the leaders, and due to point 2 as well as infrastructure of country avg. people are not at full potential. (true with any army, including lok sabha) 4. Force elections, return to 'normalcy' Reason: Show of power, that I can do this and that. To exhaust people mentally, not full analysis. It's their own bs pretty much, can look at it in many ways: army, and police want new kind of females to do mass rapes of, they want 'democracy', keep out of eye of western public, w.e w.e They act without reason, they are still human, and due to being sheltered and focused on tyranny the saying that criminals have low iq applies. What is definition of insurgency: Let us define it as actions taken to change and/or topple the current infrastructure and government. Therefore, a peaceful action such as prosecuting police officers with a certain mind-state is in fact insurgency. edit- Spelling edit2- Dam, word messed up my formatting fixed now hopefully but not orig way I meant it to read. :C

    The Return of the Guru

    Fateh jio, I'm asking that this post/discussion operate under the principle that the future will bring destruction/war and that khalsa raj may happen during this/after this. Now a lot of the time you here on posts like these the following terms: Kalki Avtar, Nihklank Avtar and etc. do these mean the same thing and what exactly are they, from what I understand they are supposed to the next saviour? The main question I have is: Saying Guru Ji will take a physical form once again, does that not reduce/ remove Guru Granth Sahib Ji from the position of a Puran Guru? If Guru ji has to take a physical form because the world/khalsa has strayed too far that means that guru granth sahib ji was not able to save us. If Guru Granth Sahib Ji cannot save us then the following questions arise: Is the Guru granth sahib ji not a puran guru, not able to do all of the tasks of a physical guru? -some may say people have strayed too far and that's why a physical form is needed, but then that diminishes the power available of our shabad guru(I.e. not being able to move around/speak without vaak/however you want to phrase it) If our shabad Guru is incapable, then does that not extend back to the 10 physical gurus including Guru gobind singh ji who proclaimed that the Guru Granth Sahib Ji should lead the Khalsa? and therefore forward as well to any further forms that could come? If the jot of the guru granth sahib ji is the same jot as all of the other gurus, when the physical form takes shape, will that jot/guruship be passed onto the physical form and then remove the guru granth sahib ji from their takat? These are just some thoughts that crosses Dass's mind when I here of the return of the Guru's physical form, something being thrown around a lot more these days, by more and more credible sources. I mean no nindyah by this post! Just sorting out the dilemma that arises within my mind when hearing these statements. This may be a result of my own lack of knowledge as well. If i have said anything to offend please forgive me.
  22. Here is a valuable book by Dr. Ganda Singh "Guru Gobind Singh's Death at Nanded--Examination of Succession Theories" Many topics that are covered in this book are important like: 1 the last days of Guru Gobind Singh Ji 2 the myth making of the namdharis that some how Guru Ji give gurgaddi to their guru is proved wrong. 3 the myth making by namdharis that Bhai Kahn Singh Ji Nabha Wale supported the theory that baba ajapal singh was in fact Guru Gobind Singh Ji 4 the myth by namdharis that Guru Granth Sahib was not given Gurgaddi there are many more importand topics covered in this book, I hope people will read it and share it with the Sangat Waheguru Guru Gobind Singh's Death at Nanded--Examination of Succession Theories

  25. Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki Fateh Sangat ji, you may not have heard of "Everythings 13" a sikh educational charity, however some of you may know about our YouTube channel "Basics of Sikhi". Most of you may not be aware that (with Guruji's kirpa and aagiaa) we're embarking on a new and comprehensive project to spread Guruji wisdom across the UK and Globally. Its called Plan BE13. Here is what our channel has on it currently.. Here is a video about Plan BE13 for 2013 Essentially we are hoping to do a 5 stage process of Parchar (1) Getting people into Sikhi (already happening) - Talks at Gurdwaras and Sikh Societies at colleges and Universities to interest youth/others into Sikhi and bring onto youtube channel - Spreading word about the Youtube Channel using facebook, twitter and and getting people into watching videos about Sikhi when they have spare time (there are around 80 videos on our youtube channel already) (2) Building a solid foundation (already happening) - holding a One Day Course +Kirtan Katha called "Re-Assessing the Fundamentals - Vaheguru, Guru and You" at various Gurdwaras (first one is due at Park Avenue Gurdwara Main Hall on the 29th December 2012) - 12 topic introductory course to Sikhi - called the WhyGuru Course. This course goes through the history of Sikhi from Guru Nanak to the present day and also has 4 separate topics which cover Guru Granth Sahib ji, The Khalsa, Raag Kirtan and Sikh Spiritual concepts of merging with the Divine. We already delivered this once in May this year and it was a success. (there is a video about this on our channel with video testimonials - we had 5 non-punjabi people attend. One lady, ex-muslim convert has now taken Amrit). (3) Learning Basics of Gurmukhi (planning done, needs filming) - A series of videos that goes into Why its important we learn Gurmukhi and How does Gurmukhi work? (Penti Akhar, Moharni) - Series of common vocabulary in Gurmukhi and how the words are put together - Basics of Santhiya - Slow paat, in video format with downloadable MP3s (4) Japji Sahib Vichaar classes (already happening) - We're doing weekly English katha of Japji Sahib and with Guru's kirpa are at the 34th Pauri. - Katha will be transcripted and put into an ebook format - Set up Japji Sahib Vichaar classes at variour gurdwaras where attendees would learn in their own time (watch the video, read ebook, watch/listen to other recommended katha (English by Bhai Sukhraj Singh, Punjabi- Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh etc) and then come together for the vichaar class at their local gurdwara (ie build a sadhsangat) to discuss Japji sahib, pauri by Pauri. (5) Further Study (to be developed as part of Plan BE13) - More Gurbani Katha - planning on Rehras sahib and Asa Di Vaar - Basics of Kirtan and Tabla - Attend an intermediate level - "WhyKhalsa WhyFateh Course" In terms of funding, our parent we've raised about £18k of our £52k target for 2013 already. 99% of this has come from the sangat, (mostly youth and non-amritdhari). We're not charging anything for katha or the courses, as we see this as Spiritual Langar (Bhugat Giaan) which should be given freely and be dependent purely on Sangat kirpa (daeaa bhandarani). Read more about the specifics of Plan BE13 here: http://www.virginmoneygiving/charities/everythings13 Please do ardaas for us to Satguru that we stay on this path and stay true to Sikhi. Thanks for reading ji, bhul chuk maaf Vaheguru ji ka Khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki Fateh
