  1. So there is no 'w' in Gurmukhi but we still promote the use of 'Waheguru' any reason for this?
  2. Is this place an actually Sangat or is it just a forum, do we have dedicated educated spiritual Sikhs on here or all like me are manmukh
  3. So i have noticed on here, we all have very distinct versions of what Vaheguru is, even when reading the same Guru Grant Sahib Ji, even when translated in English. The way I interpret it from my understanding so far Vaheguru is everything, no upar vaala , it's just everything including you.
  4. The most calming track I've heard till I day is, also happens to be the one they play at funerals! I'm sure all UK/US/Canada Singhs know which one I mean. Anyone have a link for which one it is?!
  5. Admins and Mods: As discussed, this will be my last post on this forum. Please deactivate my account afterwards. I confess that I actually did enjoy my time on here, but paradigm shifts are manifesting in the Sikh world- the traditionalist Sikhs are slowly, albeit surely, being questioned and their status as some de-facto priestly class is being effaced day-by-day. The Sikh youth, long fed on the dribble of some autonomous religio-political Khalistan, are beginning to awaken and unite to control their own future. Tragically, violence and Ad hominem seem to be the only retorts which the traditi
  6. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh I'm not sure what to make of this but I felt called to share it. I just got back to the Dojo, and there was a little injured bird hopping around in the snow, pecking at cracks in the parking lot. It looked like it had a broken wing and was missing an eye, shivering slightly. I opened the door and tried soothingly to invite inside. It would let me get pretty close but not too close, and it wouldn't come inside. So I started playing Sukhmani Sahib Kirtan hoping it would feel drawn inside. When it didn't come, and it starte
  7. So the other morning just after dawn, I walk outside and I see a man walk over to the bushes and grab his backpack out that he'd stashed there. He sees me and walks over and he's agitated, and says he needs bus fare, do I have any change? One, I didn't have money on me, and two I get this vibe to not give him any, usually I do. So I say sorry man, I don't have any money. He says he needs bus fare bad, has to get to the next town over, would I buy a new led flashlight off him for a dollar. I say again sorry man I don't have any money, but have faith somebody has your bus fare, good l
  8. If I recall correctly, a few months ago I put up a post on this forum highlighting some of the discrepancies in the Suraj Prakash. A mod took it down because he felt it would offend a majority of the forum. I, however, feel that Sikh Sangat is not emulative of it's much maligned reputation i.e. a forum full of fanatics. In the latter spirit, then, I ask that can someone then explain the following passage from another traditional text- Chibber's Bansavalinamah: 'Kahan Singh Trehan from Goindwal and a descendent of Guruji. As a Sardar (chief) Sikh sat at the Bunga (Akal Bunga, A

    My maths test...

    VJKK VJKF I have a really strict maths teacher who shouts for no reason and scares the whole class. To be honest, I haven't learnt anything in her lessons, I am more scared about getting into trouble than actually learning. Instead I used to practise what she taught us at home. On Monday 16th Oct we had a maths test and the test was so hard, I couldn't even understand what the questions were telling me to do. I read through the questions many times but still had no clue. When I mean I had no clue, my mind was completely blank. I started to panic and my eyes filled with tears and then I re
  10. ਕਾਲ ਅਤੇ ਭਗੋਤੀ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਦੀ ਵਿਚਾਰ : ਪਰਮੇਸ੍ਵਰ ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰਥਾਏ ਅਨੇਕਾਂ ਨਾਮ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਤੇ ਦਸਮ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਵਿਚ ਵਰਤੇ ਗਏ ਨੇ। ਕਿਸੇ ਵੀ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਵਿਚਲੇ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਦੀ ਪਰਿਭਾਸ਼ਾ ਓਸੇ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਹੀ ਲੈਣੀ ਚਾਹੀਦੀ ਹੈ, ਨਾ ਕੇ ਕਿਸੇ ਹੋਰ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਵਿਚੋਂ। ਦਸਮ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਵਿਚਲੇ ਦੋ ਨਾਮਾ ਨੂੰ ਅਧਾਰ ਬਣਾ ਕੇ ਆਮ ਸਿਖਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਬੇਵਕੂਫ਼ ਬਣਾਉਣ ਦੀ ਕੋਸ਼ਿਸ਼ ਕੀਤੀ ਜਾਂਦੀ ਹੈ। ਓਹ ਹਨ 1. ਕਾਲ ਅਤੇ 2. ਭਗੋਤੀ। ਆਓ ਓਹਨਾ ਤੇ ਥੋੜੀ ਜਹੀ ਵਿਚਾਰ ਦਸਮ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਹੀ ਹਵਾਲੇ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਕਰਦੇ ਹਾਂ ਤਾਂ ਕੇ ਓਹਨਾ ਦਾ ਮਤਲਬ ਸਪਸ਼ਟ ਹੋ ਸਕੇ। 1. ਕਾਲ : ਮੁਸਲਮਾਨ ਤੇ ਇਸਾਈ ਮਤ ਸ਼ੈਤਾਨ ਤੇ ਰੱਬ ਦੀ ਹੋਂਦ ਨੂੰ ਵਖਰਾ ਕਰ ਕੇ ਮੰਨਦਾ ਹੈ। ਪਰ ਗੁਰਮਤ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਮਾਰਨ ਵਾਲਾ ਤੇ ਪੈਦਾ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲਾ ਸਿਰਫ ਇਕ ਹੀ ਹੈ। ਓਹਦੇ ਹੁਕਮ ਵਿਚ ਹ
  11. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! I made this thread as a way to give my own personal tips on how someone can limit the influences of massive increase in Kaam, these being pornography and masturbation, (Note: not doing these 2 does NOT mean you beat Kaam, but that's where the problem is started.) This is also the male version of the problems, I don't know the causes of females going towards these things, so I won't discuss too much on it, but; hopefully I can assist them as well. Also I'm not an expert on any of this stuff, just felt the need since it's a big topic to provide legit a
  12. 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?
  13. The SGPC, as the trendsetter in the Sikh world, has ratified Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa's transliterations of Gurbani which are highly erroneous and lacking the spirit of the original Gurmukhi. Unfortunately, since the green light from the Committee, one finds Khalsa's works all over the internet and in popular literature. For those interested in utilizing proper transliterations, I suggest perusing the Mahan Kosh and older Punjab simplifications which are still available even to this day. Below I present the proper transliteration of a Shabad which is usually employed by Islamic apologia to dispar

    Why is Death Hard to Accept?

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Is there a reason why death is something hard for many to accept, even when it will happen to everyone? Why do people forget it? Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  15. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! How different is the Bhagti movement from Sikhi? It seems like there are lots of overlaps and the only real difference I could find was the need for Gur-prassad, (among the entire movement not the 15 bhagats, who did believe in Gur-prassad). Also if they are really very similar, what prevented those from the Bhagti movement from being Sikh during the Hindu mass conversions to Islam? Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  16. Are there any good Shastar makers out there who produce high quality products, at a reasonable rate, and also deliver overseas? If so, please post their details here. Thank you very much.
  17. I am asking this question as I am unsure as to whether Shaheed Singh's or Kaur's actually get mukht/liberated from becoming shaheed, as Gurbani provides no evidence of this? I understand that the Chali Mukte got liberated by Satguru Sri Gobind Singh Ji, and other shaheeds like Baba Banda Singh Bahadur. But lets forget puratan times because I know all the shaheeds then were brahm gianis but what about from 1984 and ownards? The reason I am asking this is because I recently attended an akath katha where the guy was standing up and explaining how to meet Vaheguru through Gurbani. He even went to
  18. Today's hukamnama got me thinking about the parlok or next world as mentioned in the Punjabi translations. Can anyone provide insight as to what they think Guru Sahib says about the next world after this by citing bani. The Punjabi interpretations are great but I felt like I didn't get the answer still. Would be much appreciated.
  19. "Sabẖ ṯe vadā saṯgur Nānak jin kal rākẖī merī. ||4||10||57||" Ang 750. Does anyone know what the meaning of this line is? I've heard it be translated as 2 different things from various people. 1. "Guru Nanak is the greatest of all; He saved my honor in this Dark Age of Kali Yuga" 2. "The greatest is Satguru-(Vaheguru's formless way), Nanak, he has saved my honor". I do assume they both mean about the same, because "Joth Roop Har Aap Guroo Naanak Kehaayo ||" Ang 1408 "The Embodiment of Light, the Lord Himself is called Guru Nanak."
  20. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ, ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹਿ ਜੀ । When I jap naam for a long time, then say do Ardaas, my head automaticaly randomly twitchs sometimes etc. Do others experience this? If so why does it occur?
  21. This was an issue that I was thinking about and felt like that Waheguru sometimes ignore the simple Ardas that we can say. Does anyone have an answer as to why that is?

  23. I recently researched some facets of Sikh history and here is what I have concluded. Please feel free to comment and criticize me. For the full article please see: http://tisarpanth.blogspot.co.nz/2014/09/dichotomy-and-de-evolution.html?view=magazine. I have also listed my sources, if in doubt please feel free to pursue them and get back to me. 'History is written by the Victors.' -Sir Winston Churchill. (1) History is never static but perpetually subject to fluctuation. Maybe then, what we call the past is nothing more than an adjective to catalog the notion of the commencement of an
