  1. Does anyone know if Bhai dharam Singh nihang of sach Khoj academy has gone to akal takht for pesh as I know they declare him tankhaiya a few years back. Just wondering is he still considered tankhaiya? Has he been excommunicated or considered part of panth? I quite like his veechars Nihang Singhs don't seem to have an issue as he was at a nihang event in 2018 https://youtu.be/fw_zLnhlQ0s
  2. VJKK VJKF Sorry I am not trying to cause any fights but I have a question. I’m not much of a jathebandi guy because high avastha gursikhs are in every jathebandi, but a question popped into my mind. What maryada of preparing Amrit is the one Sahib Shri Guru Gobind Singh ji used? I understand that Sant Jarnail Singh Ji approved of the SGPC rehit maryada, but here’s my problem. Taksali Maryada states that a Shri Sahib has to be kept of the edge of the batta while stirring the Amrit with a khanda in the right hand, and these two are to be passed with the Shri sahib remaining at the edge and the khanda remaining in the Amrit.. SGPC only mentions a khanda being used, and from what I know, Buddha Dal has all of the panj pyare having their shri sahib drawn and on the edge of the batta while one pyara stirs the Amrit with a khanda in their right hand. I also know that SGPC shortens some bani while the Amrit is being prepared. My question is, because I am taking Amrit in a few months time if I don’t fall from my rehit, what jathebandi should I take amrit from? Should I just take amrit from whatever gurdwara is closest and follow their rehit? I am utterly confused at this. Is one type of amrit sanchar parvaan and the other isn’t? Should I just get over differences and just worry on taking amrit? thanks.
  3. Today I see many people mix Punjabi culture things with sikhi. Like I personally think that Bhangra, giddha and other things like this aren’t related to sikhi and aren’t allowed for Sikh to do. People need to understand that being Punjabi is different than being a Sikh. Do u guys think that Bhangra and giddha r forbidden in sikhi?? I wanna hear sum more people’s vichar in this

  5. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Sangat Ji, I know there have been many similar posts on this topic (also by myself in the past) however, I had a question. Can Sukha be used in other forms like in hot drink instead of Degh? I know, Shaheedi Degh is Shaheedi Degh but I was having this discussion with someone and it made me think too. Would this method then make it against maryada as it's technically no longer Degh according to the recipe/ingredients and method used to make rugra. If someone with knowledge could reply it would be most appreciated. Akaal!
  6. About Vadde mahapurkh's early life before joing Sant Sundar Singh ji's jatha, is it true they had taken pahul from Budha Dal and had been a nihang singh before hearing Sant Sundar Singh jee at a smagam where budha dal mukhi Akali Baba Teja Singh were also present. There are several different views on this, and since most of sangat here is from England, fortunately residence to sachkhand niwasi Giani Gurdev Singh ji, Giani Pritam Singh Likhari ji and other prominent singhs of jatha bhindran, I was wondering if anyone had heard something of the sort from a singh etc., there are people saying Vadde Mahapurkh used to consume jhatka once and degh as well until becoming mukhi of Taksal. Just want to clarify the details. Would appreciate any further khoj done. Anything about this in sri gurmukh prakash or giaan kirna or khalsa vachitar jeevan?
  7. Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh, Lakh Lakh Vadhaian to all the Saadhsangat on the Purab of Hola Mahalla. Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj initiated this festival at Sri Holgarh Sahib (Sri Anandpur Sahib), on Cheth Vadhee Ekam 1757 Bikrami. Guru Sahib alongside the festivities of Hola, used this time to gear his Sikhs towards Shastar Vidhya. The Sikhs immersed themselves in the colour of love for Gurbani by sitting in the Saadhsangat. Changing the ancient tradition of ‘holi’ to ‘hola’ Guru Sahib said the immortal words recorded in Gurpadh Prem Parkash by Baba Sumer Singh, ‘ਔਰਨ ਕੀ ਹੋਲੀ ਮਮ ਹੋਲਾ ॥’ (for others it is Holi, for me it is Hola). Mahakavi Bhai Santokh Singh Ji has beautifully described the scene of Hola Mahalla in Sri Gurpartap Suraj Granth: ਬ੍ਰਿੰਦ ਭਏ ਸਿੱਖ ਸੰਗਤ ਆਏ ਆਨੰਦ ਬਿਲੰਦ ਗੁਰੂ ਦਰਬਾਰਾ ॥ In Guru Ji’s Darbar Sikhs came in large numbers full of bliss. ਲੰਗਰ ਹੋਤਿ ਅਤੋਟ ਜਹਾ ਕਹਿ ਜੋ ਜਿਹ ਚਾਹਤ ਖਾਏ ਅਹਾਰਾ ॥ All around the city the Guru’s Langar was running non-stop; the Sikhs would eat where they pleased. ਭੂਰ ਮਿਲੇ ਚਹੁ ਕੋਦ ਤੇ ਮੋਦਤ ਆਵਤਿ ਹੈ ਮਿਲਿ ਟੋਲ ਹਜ਼ਾਰਾ ॥ From all four directions thousands of Sikhs had gathered in Anandpur Sahib for Hola Mahalla. ਭੀੜ ਭਈ ਭਰਪੂਰ ਭਯੋ ਪੁਰ ਭਾਉ ਭਰੇ ਭਲ ਭਾਗ ਲਿਲਾਰਾ ॥ ੪ ॥ Those on whose forehead good fortune was written were colored in the color of the Guru’s love. 4. ਤਾਲ ਰਬਾਬ ਪਖਾਵਜ ਕੇ ਬਹੁ ਬਾਦਤਿ ਬਾਜਤਿ ਹੈਂ ਧੁਨ ਭਾਰੀ ॥ The Rababs and Pakhawaj (drums) were being played with great enthusiasm. ਗਾਵਤਿ ਰਾਗਨਿ ਰਾਗਨੀ ਕੋ ਜਾਨ ਆਇ ਖਰੇ ਨਿਜ ਮੂਰਤ ਧਾਰੀ ॥ The Raags and Raagnis of Gurbani were sung so beautifully it was as if the very manifestations of them raags had come and stood in front of the sangat. ਜਿਯੋ ਸੁਰ ਲੋਕ ਬਿਖੈ ਸੁਰ ਮੋਦਤਿ ਆਪਸ ਮੈਂ ਮਿਲਿ ਕੈ ਹਿਤਕਾਰੀ ॥ In the way that the demi-Gods in happiness meet each other in heaven. ਤਿਯੋੰ ਸਿੱਖ ਸੰਗਤ ਪੰਕਤਿ ਕੋ ਕਰਿ, ਹੇਰਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਹਰਖੈਂ ਉਰ ਭਾਰੀ ॥ ੫ ॥ Similarly, The Guru’s Sikhs are in a state of extreme happiness lining up to gain the glimpse of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. 5. ਬਾਜਤਿ ਹੈਂ ਸਿੰਘ ਪੌਰ ਕੇ ਠੌਰਨਿ ਨੌਬਤ ਸ਼੍ਰੌਨ ਆਨੰਦ ਉਪਾਵੈਂ ॥ Near the main door of the fort, the Nagaras (war drums) are being played, hearing which the Sikhs are obtaining bliss. ਝੰਡੇ ਉਚੇਰੇ ਖਰੇ ਬਹੁ ਝੂਲਤਿ ਧੌਂਸੇ ਧੁੰਕਾਰਤਿ ਨਾਦ ਉਠਾਵੈਂ ॥ The Nishan Sahibs of the Khalsa Panth are fluttering high in the sky and the Nagaras are producing a very loud sound. ਹੋਤਿ ਉਛਾਹ ਜਹਾਂ ਕਹਿ ਡੋਲਤਿ ਡੋਲਤਿ ਹੈਂ ਜੈਕਾਰ ਸੁਨਾਵੈਂ ॥ Gursikhs with great enthusiasm are roaring Jaikaras (war cries). ਮੇਲ ਸਕੇਲ ਭਯੋ ਰੰਗ ਮੇਲਤਿ ਭੀਰ ਧਕੇਲਤਿ ਪੇਲਤਿ ਜਾਵੈਂ ॥ ੬ ॥ ... Many Sikhs have gathered and are throwing colour on each other, the great crowd is moving forward. 6. ... ਕਬਿਤ ॥ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਕਰਿ ਹੋਰੀ ਕੋ ਬਿਲੰਦ ਸਾਜ ਹਾਥ ਪਿਚਕਾਰੀ ਸਭਿਹੂੰਨ ਭਰਿ ਲੀਨੀਓਂ ॥ Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji in their hands have taken a ‘Pichkaari’ (syringe instrument used to throw color), seeing this all the Sikhs have also taken Pickhaaris in their hands. ਭਲੇ ਭਲੇ ਸਿੱਖ ਆਇ ਧਾਰਤ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਇ ਪ੍ਰਿਥਮ ਗੁਰੂ ਕੇ ਪਾਇ ਬੰਦਨਾ ਕੋ ਕੀਨੀਓ ॥ The Sikhs in pure devotion are coming towards Guru Sahib and bowing at their charan. ਉਡਿਓ ਇਕ ਬਾਰ ਹੀ ਗੁਲਾਲ ਲਾਲ ਘਟਾ ਮਾਨੋ ਰੰਗਨਿ ਕੀ ਬੂੰਦ ਬਰਖਤ ਇਮ ਚੀਨੀਓ ॥ At once they all threw red color on each other, it was as if raindrops of different colors were falling everywhere. ਰੰਗਦਾਰ ਅੰਬਰ ਕੈ ਰੰਗਦਾਰ ਅੰਬਰ ਕੈ ਮੂਠ ਭਰਿ ਮਾਰੈਂ ਰੰਗ ਡਾਰਤਿ ਨਵੀਲਿਓਂ ॥ ੮ ॥ Throwing handfuls of colour in the air it seemed as if even the sky had taken on a new colour. 8.

  8. "No Regrets": 'Nihang' Who Claimed Brutal Killing At Farmers' Protest The body of Lakhbir Singh, 35 years old and from Punjab's Tarn Taran district, was discovered early yesterday morning with the left hand and right foot cut off All IndiaReported by Mohammad Ghazali, Edited by Chandrashekar SrinivasanUpdated: October 16, 2021 2:30 pm IST https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/lakhbir-singh-murder-no-regrets-nihang-who-claimed-brutal-killing-at-farmers-protest-site-2577427 New Delhi: Saravjit Singh - a Sikh 'warrior' or Nihang who has claimed responsibility for the gruesome murder of a Dalit labourer at a farmers protest site in Haryana's Singhu yesterday - has claimed "no regrets". Singh was produced at a local court today following his surrender yesterday and sent to seven days' police custody; the authorities had argued for 14 days' saying Sarvjit had given them information on four other suspects and that they had to recover the murder weapons. An earlier video - from before his surrender - of him tightly flanked by other Nihangs - at least two of whom still carried swords - and surrounded by reporters has emerged, in which one reporter asks: "Do you feel repentance?" To this Singh looks disinterested, waves the question away and shakes his head, and replies "No". The body of Lakhbir Singh, 35 years old and from Punjab's Tarn Taran district, was discovered early yesterday morning. It was found tied to a police barricade with the left hand and right foot cut off. As news of the brutal and sickening murder spread, at least three videos were circulated, showing a large group of Nihangs, standing around his body as lay bleeding and in pain. One video shows the group standing over him after his left hand was cut off. Another showed them filming his dying moments and a third showed him strung up by his feet like a slab of meat. NDTV has not been able to independently verify any of these videos. Also, reports circulating since yesterday morning claim that Lakhbir Singh was attacked for allegedly desecrating the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh's holy book. Swaraj India chief Yogendra Yadav, who is part of the group leading the farmers' protests, had indicated an argument broke out at the protest site Thursday night over a question of desecration. The Nihangs allegedly beat Lakhbir to death, cut off his limbs and tied him to the police barricade. However, voices from Lakhbir's home village of Cheema Kurd have a different story to tell. "He could not have done this; he was not that kind of a person. He was made to do this," Masa Singh said. Another, who requested anonymity out of fear of reprisal, stressed: "Lakhbir can't be involved in desecration", and a third, retired soldier Harbhajan Singh, said "... he must have been lured there." The Samyukt Kisan Morcha, which is spearheading farmers' protests against the government's new laws, and members of which group are among the thousands camped out at Singhu, has unequivocally distanced itself from the murder and any connection with the Nihangs. "... want to make it clear - the Nihang group (and) the deceased - have no relation with the Kisan Morcha," SKM said yesterday, adding that it abhorred sacrilege but nobody could take the law into their hands. The guilty must be punished, the farmers body said, and offered the police its support. Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar held a high-level meeting at his residence in Chandigarh to discuss the murder; Home Minister Anil Vij and the state's police chief were present.
  9. What is that big pestle and mortar thing Nihangs use to make Sukha etc ? Do you know what it's called and where I can buy it please? Need to make juices,wet,dry grinding/mixing as I found out that electric ones are dangerous for health. Thanks
  10. There is a video going around of a nihang Singh at the farmers protest in Delhi talking about how at some nihang Dal Amrit sanchars there are two baate of Amrit - from reading around apparently 'mazbhi Sikh" have to have a separate bata of Amrit from everyone else and also there are separate pangats in langar. Does anyone know what this is about?
  11. Why are there so many profiles on FB of nihangs who worship durga and kali ? If we're going to be shakti worshippers, then why beat around the bush with identity crisis. why not just accept we're hindus if we're going to worship the same gods and goddesses they do ? this is frustrating to see fellow sikhs go down this line
  12. Who is the jathedar of Tarna Dal? What are the different branches of Tarna Dal? Which section of to Tarna Dal is associated with Shaheed Baba Deep Singh Jee, I have heard it is hariavela but then I have also heard it is Baba Bakala?
  13. I have noticed quite a few nihang Singhs seem to wear a ring on the finger. Mostly seems to be sarbloh. What is the significance of wearing this?

    is this a bani?

    gurfateh, guru-sangat i was listening to a mixtape the other day, and there is this part in it where they start by saying "niraj chhand", and it says "dhhu dhhu myan te kirbaan yu nikaal hai" i want to know if this is a bani. if it is, what bani is it? i asked some of my friends and they think it could be sri sarbloh granth, panth prakash, or sooraj prakash. please let me know as soon as possible. wahegurujikakhalsawahegurujikifateh
  16. does anyone know where i can buy a taksali gutka with gurmukhi and roman translations? I want to buy one online. If there isnt any, can any one at least tell me if there is a trustable website were i can buy a taksali gutka.
  17. Is there any difference between a taksali gutka and any other ones like budha dal gutkas? I used to use mysikhi app to do nitnem and read gurbani, but recently i downloaded the damdami taksal sunder gutka app.
  18. I tie a taksali dumala, but i am wondering what is the history behind it. Apparently the singhs in guru jis time used to wear nihang dumala and used used to wear chakars on them. When was the taksali dumala style made? who made it? is there a reason why taksalis wear this dumala?
  19. I got extremely curly hair that is hard to keep un tangled and un knotted. Any one got any tips for keeping curly kesh under control between washes?
  20. https://www.facebook.com/100000625982887/posts/3166987263332109/?sfnsn=wiwspwa&extid=HQl7Y7ErEvn5OqeK Baba Nihal Singh in his statement in June 1984, he states that Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa Bhindrawale was wrong in staying inside the Darbar Sahib complex. What is the sangat's view oh Baba Nihal Singh's comments. He was one of beloved of sant ji and after his martyrdom he one one of the fist one to defame his identity
  21. This is from Gurdwara Harian belan in Hoshiarpur. Beautiful video about horses and other fading traditions.
  22. Not sure how many have seen this but its a old punjabi documentary about Nihang Singhs made in 1989.
