  1. This thread can be used to share gurpurabs, important dates, etc. from our ithihaas
  2. During COVID, we all saw how various Sikhs and Sikh NGOs came forward to help people of all religions,castes,etc as its our belief to do so. Delhi gurudwara donated gold and silvers worth crores to build hospital and recently inaugurated free hundred bed dialysis center. Good. Very Good. But where all these charity goes when sikhs in punjab themselves are suffering due to daily farmers suicides, families destroyed due to fake encounters, drugs, poor employment opportunities, immigration,etc. When we are in trouble, nobody comes to help. Not even our own and nor the ones whom we help

  5. Gurfateh all, My name is Dr Jasjit Singh, Associate Professor at the University of Leeds.I have recently put together an online survey to examine how Sikhs engagewith Sikhi online. This survey is based on a similar survey which I ran aspart of my PhD. I am now re-running the survey to see what has changed over the past 10years, focusing on digital innovations and on the online space. Anyone whoself identifies as 'Sikh' is welcome to respond. The survey link is here: https://leeds.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/sikhsurvey I am looking for responses from Sikh living anywhere of any age. Pleasefeel free to
  6. Is there any evidence that 1 million Mughals really fought the Guru and his Sikh at Chamkaur? (Besides Zafarnama as the passage in it is not used literally)
  7. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh... Sadh sangat ji, my fiance and I are both amritdhari and want a very very simple Anand karaj. There will be a very very small number of people attending according to our list as we want it to be very basic and according to Sikh marayada, as much as possible. We would day around 10 people tops (mainly just immediate family and crossing out the rishtedaar that we don't really interact with). We have searched online and most of what we are reading is about "Panjabi" weddings and nothing constructive in regards to a simple Gursikh Anand

  9. NOTE: This post is a work in progress Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Often times I hear Non-Sikhs bring up common arguments against Sikhi, and as someone who likes to create a lot online resource hubs for Sikhs, I am taking it upon myself to create a list of Q/A's. I recently got a series of arguments (posing as questions) from an anonymous user on the Sikh Reddit who was allegedly Ex-Sikh. He frequently made references to Islam, and also claimed that he had done a lot of research on his "questions", yet the questions themselves seem as if they are taken from wi

Attorneys for Surjit Singh are calling for a probe into the Aug. 25, 2020 incident by the US Department of Justice for what they call “egregious r
  11. Ughh its a hindu look alike of Harmandar sahib in amritsar , in amritsar. Recently they covered it with gold fully Also hindoos have managed to twist Badals arms into providing similar front heritage walk for durgiana temple as it was recently for harmandar sahib Reminds me of Gulab Singh of Jammu and other such DOGras who must have twisted Ranjit singh's arms into giving them autocracy . When they asked us for it , we gave them , and when we asked for it from hindoos , these bloody rats gave us bullets .
  12. I have heard it was like a poison for aurangzeb who was said to have been struck with emotional torment after reading it .
  13. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Something Daas wanted to know was how exactly from Banda Singh Bahadur having a kingdom and freeing Sirhind; was he forced to live in the jungles? Daas tried searching for an answer, but found very little details. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  14. Wjkk Wjkf, Does anyone know of any document, pdf, or website that has all the words that appear in japji sahib divided by muhaarni? So a list of all the Mukhtas, then everything with kanna, then siharee, biharee, etc. Thanks
  15. I have been reading some of books about Sikhi recently and I was wondering if W.H McLeod is a good author and which of his books shall I read?
  16. can someone explain if suraj parkash is right or wrong? why is it reliable if it was written in 1843, which was way after guru jis time. I follow taksal maryada and i havent quite understood why the taksal has chosen to do suraj parkash parchar.
  17. I am pretty skeptical that sikhs cant follow, since islam and sikhi are so different but I was still pondering. When growing up in the 90s it was very common to see muslim men in kurta pajama and women in burqa . However seeing the growing modernization in their young generation and the arab fancy among subcontinental muslims , they have become even more kattad or should i say modest in their clothing sense. And to attract youth to it , they have opened up so many stores and brands that try to hybridize the old fashioned boring islamic wear -- ankle length gowns for men and burqa for wome
  18. A great book in English giving counterpoints to arguments made by Hindus - http://discoversikhism.com/sikh_library/english/sikhs_we_are_not_hindus.html Also if anyone wants to share any other arguments made by others we can give counterpoints if needed.
  19. Though I am getting spiritual with time but often my mind gets agitated seeing the present conditions and questions start coming up... Our present times are very dangerous considering the farms bills can literally wipe out sikh farmers economically in Punjab. Our elders are sitting on roads for past 4 months with over 350 dead when it was time for them to live relaxed life. But our enemies continue to thrive in positions of power. Leader who cheated us are leading good lives with sufficient wealth for several generations. You may say, akal purkh will do justice... But when our s
  20. Just posting this up to make it easier for sikhs to find out about how we are meant to celebrate Navratri and Dusshera. There is actually something similar for Diwali as well where Dasvin 10th Patshah actually uses the word 'Diwali'! Hopefully I will find it before Diwali. https://www.facebook.com/652447751445011/photos/navratri-and-dushera-are-days-to-do-shastra-puja-the-nine-nights-of-naurate-star/995158367173946/
