  1. interesting vichar about reversing the downturn of sikhi and the state of play in India
  2. A couple of videos let's talk about how this affects sikhi and our future, what can we do to avoid slavery like the sheep
  3. 1. Can someone provide an accurate number of how many Sikhs there are in the world and how many Sikhs there will be in the future? 2. What is the fertility rate of the average Sikh? In my opinion, I think that in order for Sikhism to become a much larger religion than it already is, the mean fertility rate of the average Sikh must substantially increase. 3. Do you think that it is necessary for the Akal Takht and other prominent Sikhs and Granthis to launch conversion campaigns in India? 4. What and how do you see Sikhism being in the future? How many adherents will there be and how relevant will it be to the mainstream not just in India, but in other countries? 5. Insofar as Gurdwara administration is concerned, does the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee watch over all Gurdwaras? What of other parts of India, specifically in terms of historical Gurdwaras?
  4. Sometimes when I look at the current state of affairs of sikh dharam , it seems we're sitting on the edge of a cliff or rather spiralling down since the fall of Sikh empire. On my recent trip to punjab, I felt like the state is in abject poverty , and ofcourse hindus do mock sikhs now as "drug peddlers" , "udta punjab" , "you ppl lack industries and employment" and what not. Some signs of deadly decadence of Sikhi : 1) so many of our men are not committed to turban / kes. Honestly being a haircut sikh was never so easier. 2) utter jaahilta among sikh masses. Most don't even know name of 10 gurus , 5 nitnem baanis name , and perhaps know nothing more than mool mantar. Imagine if most sikhs had nitnem baani kanth and did regular paath . Even a lengthy baani as Sukhmani sahib renders itself to memorization if recited daily . 3) Punjab is decreasing in sikh demography . If you just recently been to punjab , you will find it hard pressed to see turbaned men , or rather 1 turban man for every 10 others . Most of people I see are bhaiyye from up/bihar .Punjab was 61% sikh 20 yrs back and now its just little above 50%. Christian missionaries conversion is highest rate ever. 4) Hindi sign boards more common than Punjabi sign boards. Try doing this in some other state , but its ok in punjab because sikhs are spineless af . 5) Sikhs political back is broken and we have badals and captains destroying punjab further. The whole qaum rests on mercy of akal purakh and if you see from an atheist point of view sikhs are doomed . All signs point to that way. what do you think ?
  5. Why are these forums so inactive? Why are there only a few new posts every day? Why do most threads flop? With all of the issues that our community faces, I would hope that there would be many lively discussions, and regular, vigorous, intelligent debate. Instead, I find that I only have to visit this place once every few weeks to keep up. Is there some other place with a more lively debate about Sikh issues? Or does the lack of activity in these forums reflect the general sad lack of interest in Sikhi these days? By the way, it doesn't help that whenever a topic actually generates a lively discussion, the moderators find some stupid reason to close the thread and prohibit any further posts. I'm sure this thread will also be closed. It also doesn't help that people who actually are interested in discussion (like West London Singh/Legal Singh/Jagsaw Singh) get banned.
  6. Hey guys. This happened to me a few years ago. I was like 10 or 12. So sometimes I would see a dream of a person or event happening, only for a few seconds though. But the person or event became true even though I did not know who the person was. This took time (a few years sometimes) to come true. But when that thing happening I was instantly able to remember that, that thing happened in my dream. I used to do a lot of mool mantra and simran, before going to sleep. It was only for a few months though. But I think the effects of that lasted for a few years......... Also sometimes the person talked in the dream and when I saw that person in realy life, they said the same thing... Thoughts on this?

    Basics Of Sikhi

    Superkaur highlighted positives and negatives and potential improvements to the format of Basics of Sikhi videos. Agreeing with some, not all of her points I would like to ask how the Sangat here feel Jagraj Singh can better his channel and parchar, he is already doing a fantastic job most of the time which is what counts. So do we all agree with his views or not? I for one believe that Sikhism is not compatible with homosexuality, whereas their leaflets say it's acceptable in not so many words. Please post anonymously if that's your preference, I think it will be constructive feedback.
  10. I have always wondered how to implement a change in Golak reliance and the arguments for control of it ... no golak no power games/politics just read this , made me smile https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=375746569284717&set=a.188247924701250.1073741833.100005481313139&type=3&theater
  11. I have a feeling that religion will be the dust in the future. Technology is rising, and stuff is changing. Our youth do drugs and other bad things. But, I think that religion will still stand in the future. We will colonize other planets,but like our Gurus said the humans wanted more from God in the Earth. But God got disappointed. I hope that we won't do bad things to he planets we colonize. It will also be neat if we have Gurdwaras on different planets.
  12. I know a-lot of sikhs here and elsewhere are passionate about this. But I have a couple of questions about it, things that confuse me. Firstly im assuming that Khalistan is an independent nation for Sikhs, That's all cool and something I would support, but economically and even looking at the state of the world is it possible? Our global economy isn't all too good right now and im no economist but how would people start a new currency? Then we have politics and govern-ship. I'll assume that we would want a Sikh leadership but how would politics and religion mix into things. Would keeping them separate be wiser or not? There's also allies or even potential defense, budget, healthcare. How would we afford all this? This is mainly aimed at the more wiser supporters of the movement as I'm pretty curious how things would go about.
  13. Every peoples in the world have affinity to the place of their origins. For example look at Jews and Israel. We, the punjabi peoples, come from Punjab--our holy land. Our ancestral homeland. The core of our culture and traditions. There are around 120 million Punjabi peoples in the world, majority residing in Punjab and diaspora spread across the world, specially in Canada, United States, and British. Out of 120 million Punjabi peoples, there are around 80 million Punjabi peoples who are Muslims. Around 30 million of Punjabis are Sikhs..and rest are other categories. As sad it is, I must agree that I have arrived to the conclusion that the survival of Punjabi peoples, Punjabi values, and Punjabi culture will be due to Muslim Punjabis, and not Sikh Punjabis. Muslim Punjabis are part of wider Islamic peoples, who adhere to their religion, culture, traditions, and civilization like no other people out there. We all know it and have seen it..and must learn something here. Islamic people have made their civilization a truly global civilization expanding everywhere. No other peoples have achieved in less 1500 years what Islamic peoples have achieved. And THIS is precisely the reason that the main cause of survival of Punjabi peoples would be Muslim Punjabis. Muslim Punjabis have a state of their own (Pakistan ch Punjabis sub ton dominant ne). In undivided Punjab in Pakistan, population of Punjabi peoples is near 70 million+...and their fertility rate is 3 kids per woman--means they are expanding! While in india sadly, fertility rate of Punjabi peoples is less than required for replacement levels. With less than 2.1 fertility rate, indian punjabi peoples are declining compared to over-all population. There seems to be a well-thoughout agenda behind this (Very good video to watch on this topic from basics of Sikhi: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckraEt68eo0 ) The reason why Muslim punjabis will expand as a people is similar to why Islamic people as a whole have been able to expand..and the reason is their women! I'll be honest: I have lived in Canada, U.S and (visited) U.K for some time. I have seen everything. A lot of life experience.. Muslim Punjabi girls, on average, were way more cultured than our kuriyans. Muslim Punjabi girls would generally stay away from drinking, love-affairs, and other vices. Compared with Punjabi Sikh girls, Muslim girls will proudly live by their culture and be confident and excel in all fields. Muslim Punjabi girls vigiriously protect their sexual engagement and virginity. While Punjabi Sikh girls...well, the less said the better. I have seen countless Muslim Punjabi girls who'd wear Hijab and have very attractive personality. These girls go on to produce offsprings generally from Muslim Punjabi males. In this way, Punjabi culture, peoples, and traditions not only survive but thrive!! The fact remains that the Punjabi people will increase in population and spread...and the credit goes to Muslim Punjbis, and not Sikh Punjabis who are destroying our most precious gift--Sikhi and Punjabi roots.
  14. Do you think that many Sikh youth today should influenced into doing Sikhi parchar?I know it might be a lifetime job or can be a part time job but if you look at our quality within our quantity (24Mill) the state of the panth is pretty bad and silent. Our population is decreasing. The Akal Takhat jathedar telling us to have 4 kids is a excuse for his poor management of parchar in punjab (no surprise). I really think the upcoming generation can use a lot of parchariks to make Sikhs keep their faith intact and welcome others into Sikhi. Many will disagree with me on the part that Sikhs are more about quality than quantity that is very true but it can become a problem like today. Now we can take the example of Muslims who have tremendous amount of money put into making Muslim centers just to discuss and teach Muslims and others about Islam. In America alone, Muslim population has doubled since 9/11. We have rarely any Sikh centres and our gurdwaras are just a go and eat place. We are a rich minority population in many countries. Our population has swerved up just a notch but many are leaving our faith and many have decided to get rid of kesh. I really think the older generation of Sikhs have done great jobs making gurdwaras and running them but the lack of parchar is pretty sad even here in America. The amount missionaries in Punjab that are just blindly converting Sikhs is plain said. I really think we can use more parchariks to bring Sikhi awareness and strength for the future of the Panth. Any opinions on this? http://www.sikh24.com/2014/03/akal-takht-jathedar-expresses-worry-of-sikh-population-decreasing/#.U4LUh_ldV6A http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/number-muslims-u-s-doubles-9-11-article-1.1071895
  15. In these interviews, former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury Roberts explains to us the current financial situation facing America and the world. I recall that Giani Thakur Singh ji once mentioned in his katha that the food, homes, jobs etc we have are a result of our past kamai. Difficult economic situations come about b/c peoples' kamai runs out. part 1 http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2013/3/15_Former_US_Treasury_Official_-_Fed_Desperate_To_Avoid_Collapse.html part 2 http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2013/3/16_Former_US_Treasury_Official_-_US_Financial_System_To_Collapse.html Trends Forecaster, Gerald Celente, discusses Government Preparations for Economic Implosion:
