  10. I recently welcomed The Guru Granth Sahib in to my home and began reading this translation (chahail). There are the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 and some like 4.4, 5.2 found before sentences. I never read The Guru myself so I am quite unaware as to what these numbers mean. Are they to denote the chords on an instrument or pitches of the voice? Can anyone help? Thank you!
  11. This is not about personal opinions but obtaining different Shabads from Gurbani to see what the Guru says about Islam?
  12. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹ Does anyone know of any Gurbani which describes the shape of the world? I know of the pankti in Sri Sukhmani Sahib which states the world has 4 corners "nimukh mahi chaar kunt fir aave"
  13. there's lots of strife in my family nowadays. Even despite just me , mom and dad. I think we're seeing almost daily quarrels over some or the other issue

    Is Gurbani, just poetry?

    Is it alright to quote Gurbani to answer a question, I see scholars do it all the time, but these words can have different interpretations, and at the end of the day, its poetry, and is not a direct instruction, if you know what I mean?
  15. I don't know if its just me , its quite a paradox. The recurring theme of SGGS is that meditate on god , your family members aren't with you really ! I know this is elevating but at the same time the "temporary-ness" of everything is making me feel a bit sick the more I try to realize it . I guess it comes from the fact that we're used to living in a bubble of temporary world and take it for granted as permanent . However considering my parents getting older and I don't really "love" my wife, I feel more lonely . And despite SGGS saying that ultimately god is the only companion and not your family members, it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable that my parents probably won't be with me in a decade or more .

  17. Often we refute that Hari , Raam and litany of sanskrit names for the divinity is actually referring to Parbrahm or waheguru ji . Agreed these are all names of Parbrahm even in some interpretatons of hindu scriptures. But how do we explain these shabads from SGGS itself , that almost seemingly are in adoration of either vishnu or krishna.

  18. I have heard chaupai sahib helps protect against black magic or stuff if someone did it on you . I know I am sounding a lil superstititous but if someone did daily paath , will black still affect them or their family members ?
  19. Why is marriage between two different 'castes' within Punjabi Sikhs such a big deal? As Sikhs we aren't 'supposed' to put such a big weight on our ancestory/lineage/ (whatever you want to call it) during our normal day to day lives let alone marriage. But from the sangat of Punjabis around me, it isn't uncommon to hear conversations about how low castes are like this and that and high castes are like that and this. I've even heard people say they'd rather have their child marry out of race (culturally and religiously) than marry someone from a lower caste than them. (*Enter the 'Dafuq' meme here lol). So why is there such a big stigma against intercaste related marriages?

I would like to hold these discussions in one place, partially because they are extraneous to the thread titles in those other threads, and we should let those threads discuss the specific items that the thread creators wanted to originally discuss: http://sikhsangat.com/index.php?/topic/80863-human-rights-in-islam/ http://sikhsangat.com/index.php?/topic/80838-why-muslims-should-never-be-trusted/ I propose that Sheikh Farid ji was not a Muslim at then end, whatever he may have been at some time.

    Tyaar Baar Tyaar

    When I was kid one quote in gurbani really stood out to me: "Tyaar Baar Tyaar". Guru Gobind Singh Ji instructed us to be prepared to tackle anything. Nowadays, we don't take that quote as seriously, even though its argueably one of the most important banis in this age. With much of the west on its way to collapse as discussed in my first post, I am curious as to how prepared we are for when things go array (economic crash, civil war, pandemics etc), and modern cities and governance fails. I don't think we'll fair too well at the start. When the mughals were in control and were trying to wipe out sikhi most of them retreated to the jungles to regroup and get the panth ready to strike back. Since most people at the time were capable of being semi-selfsufficient and could easily adapt to such harsher lifestyles, it's hard to see how we'll fair today in the cities especially, with most modern day work and the skills sets required are almost useless if society collapses. I've started prepping by reading more of guru's teachings and learning from the prepping community who are training for such scenarios. Here's a link to the previous thread:
