does anyone no much about baba vadbagh singh sodhi? i read that he was excommunicated from the panth? my family name is sodhi too! my mum says we come from the same family as him, when we go india we go too his dhera! my thiya goes to his dhera ritually where descendants of his family but i read somewhere that he was apparently rejected by the panth? in my family if a new born baby boy is born or if a guy from our family gets married, its tradition for the family then to go to his dhera for "blessings" ! i know this all sounds weird but yeah LOL! iv been to his dhera once when we went india! its in himachal pardesh, high up in the mountains, not too far from anandpur sahib if i remember correctly. it was a weird place! lots of weird stuff happening there! my mum didnt let me question anything. not far from the dhera is like a holy waterfall where people take a dip. its like in the middle of nowhere surrounded by mountains and forests. next to this holy waterfall is a little gurdwara but when you do matha tekh there this dude slaps your back while your bent over with a chimta and peacock feathers! this other guy was ringing bells in there too! outside, there were all these black strings everywhere, some had beads. my nanni said the strings have a mantra read in them and that we must NOT touch them!! there were red cloths tied everywhere and some strings with beads thrown around everywhere, lots of weird looking jewelry, rings etc . because these things had mantras read into them and were once worn by possessed people we weren't meant to touch them and had to dodge these strings everywhere when walking!! it was creepy! my nani said people who were possessed wore these and once they are cured they leave these strings here! and if you touch them the evil mantra will come onto you in return. the strings and beads were scattered everywhere on the ground and we were told to dodge them! all this <banned word filter activated> was by the "holy" waterfall .there was also this woman sitting there but she had no pupils! just the white parts of her eye! and she was chanting some stuff. the whole place was creepy! the weird the location, the mountains and forests didnt help either lol we then left the magic waterfall and went to the main dhera which was higher up the mountain and that was just as worse. guru granth sahib is kept there but there also a couple of possessed women just outside the main gurdwara! they were making heavy breathing noises and swinging there hair back and forth like crazy and these priests were reading stuff to them!! i couldnt get this place out of my head for several days! the thing is guru granth sahib is kept in this place too and the surrounding shrines and yet they do all this weird stuff there. anyone know anything more about baba vadhbagh singh? because he was excommunicated, then how did we, his descendants get back into the sikh fold? my family are sikhs we believe in guru granth sahib ji and go gurdwara has anyone else been to this place too?
