  1. The foundation of spirituality as per gurmat is detachment. If the foundation of a house is weak it won't last long - similarly, if we stay attached to family , acquisition and display of wealth, looks, sensual entertainments, seeking praise from others then we will have a real hard time concentrating in our mediation or simran. Please share ! Here are some tuks that we should print and stick on various places to continuously hammer in the idea of staying "Niralam" On the dressing table ਲਖ ਟਕਿਆ ਕੇ ਮੁੰਦੜੇ ਲਖ ਟਕਿਆ ਕੇ ਹਾਰ ॥ लख टकिआ के मुंदड़े लख टकिआ के हार ॥ Lakẖ taki▫ā ke munḏ▫ṛe lakẖ taki▫ā ke hār. They wear earrings, and necklaces worth thousands of dollars. ਜਿਤੁ ਤਨਿ ਪਾਈਅਹਿ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਸੇ ਤਨ ਹੋਵਹਿ ਛਾਰ ॥ जितु तनि पाईअहि नानका से तन होवहि छार ॥ Jiṯ ṯan pā▫ī▫ah nānkā se ṯan hovėh cẖẖār. Those bodies on which they are worn, O Nanak, those bodies turn to ashes. and (to remind us of approaching death and detaching from this body which is nothing but dirt , and garnering praise from people that we are still young) ਜੇ ਜਰਵਾਣਾ ਪਰਹਰੈ ਜਰੁ ਵੇਸ ਕਰੇਦੀ ਆਈਐ ॥ जे जरवाणा परहरै जरु वेस करेदी आईऐ ॥ Je jarvāṇā parharai jar ves kareḏī ā▫ī▫ai. Even if you remove the signs of old age, old age shall still come in the guise of death. ਕੋ ਰਹੈ ਨ ਭਰੀਐ ਪਾਈਐ ॥੫॥ को रहै न भरीऐ पाईऐ ॥५॥ Ko rahai na bẖarī▫ai pā▫ī▫ai. ||5|| No one remains here when the count of the breaths is full. ||5|| 2) On weddings when people are dancing and acting unskillfully in other ways ਨਚਣੁ ਕੁਦਣੁ ਮਨ ਕਾ ਚਾਉ ॥ नचणु कुदणु मन का चाउ ॥ Nacẖaṇ kuḏaṇ man kā cẖā▫o. They dance and jump around on the urgings of their minds. ਨਾਨਕ ਜਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹ ਮਨਿ ਭਉ ਤਿਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਾ ਮਨਿ ਭਾਉ ॥੨॥ नानक जिन्ह मनि भउ तिन्हा मनि भाउ ॥२॥ Nānak jinĥ man bẖa▫o ṯinĥā man bẖā▫o. ||2|| O Nanak, those whose minds are filled with the Fear of God, have the love of God in their minds as well. ||2|| 3) When there is a desire in mind to ask waheguru for some worldly favor ਜੀਉ ਪਿੰਡੁ ਸਭੁ ਤਿਸ ਦਾ ਦੇ ਖਾਜੈ ਆਖਿ ਗਵਾਈਐ ॥ जीउ पिंडु सभु तिस दा दे खाजै आखि गवाईऐ ॥ Jī▫o pind sabẖ ṯis ḏā ḏe kẖājai ākẖ gavā▫ī▫ai. Soul and body all belong to Him; asking Him to give us sustenance is a waste. 4) on the entrance of your home whether its a grand mansion (or you have one in your day dreams) ਊਚੇ ਮੰਦਰ ਸਾਲ ਰਸੋਈ ॥ ऊचे मंदर साल रसोई ॥ Ūcẖe manḏar sāl raso▫ī. You may have lofty mansions, halls and kitchens. ਏਕ ਘਰੀ ਫੁਨਿ ਰਹਨੁ ਨ ਹੋਈ ॥੧॥ एक घरी फुनि रहनु न होई ॥१॥ Ėk gẖarī fun rahan na ho▫ī. ||1|| But you cannot stay in them, even for an instant, after death. ||1|| 5) If you take too much pride in your physical appearance, youth, muscles, etc ਜੋਬਨੁ ਧਨੁ ਪ੍ਰਭਤਾ ਕੈ ਮਦ ਮੈ ਅਹਿਨਿਸਿ ਰਹੈ ਦਿਵਾਨਾ ॥੧॥ जोबनु धनु प्रभता कै मद मै अहिनिसि रहै दिवाना ॥१॥ Joban ḏẖan parabẖ▫ṯā kai maḏ mai ahinis rahai ḏivānā. ||1|| In the pride of youth, wealth and glory, day and night, he remains intoxicated. ||1|| ਦੀਨ ਦਇਆਲ ਸਦਾ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨ ਤਾ ਸਿਉ ਮਨੁ ਨ ਲਗਾਨਾ ॥ दीन दइआल सदा दुख भंजन ता सिउ मनु न लगाना ॥ Ḏīn ḏa▫i▫āl saḏā ḏukẖ bẖanjan ṯā si▫o man na lagānā. God is merciful to the meek, and forever the Destroyer of pain, but the mortal does not center his mind on Him. 6) On your dining table and fridge ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਸੁਨਿ ਕਛੁ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਨ ਉਪਜਿਓ ਪਸੁ ਜਿਉ ਉਦਰੁ ਭਰਉ ॥ गुरमति सुनि कछु गिआनु न उपजिओ पसु जिउ उदरु भरउ ॥ Gurmaṯ sun kacẖẖ gi▫ān na upji▫o pas ji▫o uḏar bẖara▫o. I listened to the Guru's Teachings, but spiritual wisdom did not well up within me; like a beast, I fill my belly. ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਿਰਦੁ ਪਛਾਨਉ ਤਬ ਹਉ ਪਤਿਤ ਤਰਉ ॥ कहु नानक प्रभ बिरदु पछानउ तब हउ पतित तरउ ॥२॥४॥९॥९॥१३॥५८॥४॥९३॥ Kaho Nānak parabẖ biraḏ pacẖẖāna▫o ṯab ha▫o paṯiṯ ṯara▫ Says Nanak, O God, please confirm Your Law of Grace; for only then can I, the sinner, be saved 7)On your locker or safebox where you store your valuables ਜੋ ਸੰਪਤਿ ਅਪਨੀ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੀ ਛਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਭਈ ਪਰਾਈ ॥ जो स्मपति अपनी करि मानी छिन महि भई पराई ॥ Jo sampaṯ apnī kar mānī cẖẖin mėh bẖa▫ī parā▫ī. That wealth, which he believes to be his own, in an instant, belongs to another. ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ ਯਹ ਸੋਚ ਰਹੀ ਮਨਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਸੁ ਕਬਹੂ ਨ ਗਾਈ ॥੨॥੨॥ कहु नानक यह सोच रही मनि हरि जसु कबहू न गाई ॥२॥२॥ Kaho Nānak yėh socẖ rahī man har jas kabhū na gā▫ī. ||2||2|| Says Nanak, this still really bothers my mind - I never sang the Praises of the Lord. ||2||2|| 8) If you have pictures of guru sahib or other dieties in your home and you ask favors from it ਅੰਤਰਿ ਦੇਉ ਨ ਜਾਨੈ ਅੰਧੁ ॥ अंतरि देउ न जानै अंधु ॥ Anṯar ḏe▫o na jānai anḏẖ. The Divine Lord is within the self, but the spiritually blind one does not know this. ਭ੍ਰਮ ਕਾ ਮੋਹਿਆ ਪਾਵੈ ਫੰਧੁ ॥ भ्रम का मोहिआ पावै फंधु ॥ Bẖaram kā mohi▫ā pāvai fanḏẖ. Deluded by doubt, he is caught in the noose. ਨ ਪਾਥਰੁ ਬੋਲੈ ਨਾ ਕਿਛੁ ਦੇਇ ॥ न पाथरु बोलै ना किछु देइ ॥ Na pāthar bolai nā kicẖẖ ḏe▫e. The stone does not speak; it does not give anything to anyone. ਫੋਕਟ ਕਰਮ ਨਿਹਫਲ ਹੈ ਸੇਵ ॥੨॥ फोकट करम निहफल है सेव ॥२॥ Fokat karam nihfal hai sev. ||2|| Such religious rituals are useless; such service is fruitless. ||2|| 9) On the frame of your family picture ਭਾਈ ਰੇ ਮੈ ਮੀਤੁ ਸਖਾ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਸੋਇ ॥ भाई रे मै मीतु सखा प्रभु सोइ ॥ Bẖā▫ī re mai mīṯ sakẖā parabẖ so▫e. O Siblings of Destiny, God is my Friend and Companion. ਪੁਤੁ ਕਲਤੁ ਮੋਹੁ ਬਿਖੁ ਹੈ ਅੰਤਿ ਬੇਲੀ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਹੋਇ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ पुतु कलतु मोहु बिखु है अंति बेली कोइ न होइ ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ Puṯ kalaṯ moh bikẖ hai anṯ belī ko▫e na ho▫e. ||1|| rahā▫o. Emotional attachment to children and spouse is poison; in the end, no one will go along with you as your helper. ||1||Pause|| 10) Home or lock screen of your phone and the TV( so you are not tempted to waste time on it) ਕਉਤਕ ਕੋਡ ਤਮਾਸਿਆ ਚਿਤਿ ਨ ਆਵਸੁ ਨਾਉ ॥ कउतक कोड तमासिआ चिति न आवसु नाउ ॥ Ka▫uṯak kod ṯamāsi▫ā cẖiṯ na āvas nā▫o. In the midst of millions of games and entertainments, the Lord's Name does not come to their minds. ਨਾਨਕ ਕੋੜੀ ਨਰਕ ਬਰਾਬਰੇ ਉਜੜੁ ਸੋਈ ਥਾਉ ॥੨॥ नानक कोड़ी नरक बराबरे उजड़ु सोई थाउ ॥२॥ Nānak koṛī narak barābare ujaṛ so▫ī thā▫o. ||2|| O Nanak, their home is like a wilderness, in the depths of hell. ||2||
  2. What is gurmat - if we want to find the essence of this great philosophy , we should understand the message that guru nanak set out to preach in his udasis. He did not call for a certain look (hair ) or any rituals (like akhand path , chavar) , instead his message was simple - to merge with God we must develop the qualities of god i.e one must become nirbhao, nirvair, niralam (detached) Vin gun keete bhagat na hoi. Also he did not start a 'religion' and never advised anyone to convert from one organized religion to another. His message was universal and simple -to jogis, hindus, sidhs and Muslims - the gist of which was rather than focus on external symbols such as ashes on the body (as worn by yogis of the time ) or the clothe used by muslims for navaz called musala , one should train ones mind to embody the spirit of these symbols ਮਿਹਰ ਮਸੀਤਿ ਸਿਦਕੁ ਮੁਸਲਾ ਹਕੁ ਹਲਾਲੁ ਕੁਰਾਣੁ ॥ Mihar Maseeth Sidhak Musalaa Hak Halaal Kuraan || Let mercy be your mosque, faith your prayer-mat, and honest living your Koran. ਸਰਮ ਸੁੰਨਤਿ ਸੀਲੁ ਰੋਜਾ ਹੋਹੁ ਮੁਸਲਮਾਣੁ ॥ Saram Sunnath Seel Rojaa Hohu Musalamaan || Make modesty your circumcision, and good conduct your fast. In this way, you shall be a true Muslim. ਕਰਣੀ ਕਾਬਾ ਸਚੁ ਪੀਰੁ ਕਲਮਾ ਕਰਮ ਨਿਵਾਜ ॥ Karanee Kaabaa Sach Peer Kalamaa Karam Nivaaj || Let good conduct be your Kaabaa, Truth your spiritual guide, and the karma of good deeds your prayer and chant. ਤਸਬੀ ਸਾ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਵਸੀ ਨਾਨਕ ਰਖੈ ਲਾਜ ॥੧॥ Thasabee Saa This Bhaavasee Naanak Rakhai Laaj ||1|| Let your rosary be that which is pleasing to His Will. O Nanak, God shall preserve your honor. ||1|| Sadly the way sikhis is practised today is very different from guruanank's mission , we emphasize empty recitation and external look rather than fighting with a mind which has enslaved us and causes nothing but suffering for ourselves and people around us .
  3. If one wants to grow spiritually, as per SGGS the following are needed 1. Udam - effort for instance one can start waking up 30 minutes before one's usual time to do waheguru jap or breath meditation, also keep bringing the focus on naam simran throughout the day ਉਦਮੁ ਕਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਜਾਪਣਾ ਵਡਭਾਗੀ ਧਨੁ ਖਾਟਿ ॥ Oudham Kar Har Jaapanaa Vaddabhaagee Dhhan Khaatt || Make the effort and chant the Lord's Name. O very fortunate ones earn this wealth. 2. Detachment from the worldly affairs - We are always engrossed in thoughts about wealth, seeking approval, improving the conditions of our own and family members, etc, however a clear understanding that these are not the goal of our life will help us keep our mind focused on naam. ਏਕ ਰੈਣ ਕੇ ਪਾਹੁਨ ਤੁਮ ਆਏ ਬਹੁ ਜੁਗ ਆਸ ਬਧਾਏ ॥ ਗ੍ਰਿਹ ਮੰਦਰ ਸੰਪੈ ਜੋ ਦੀਸੈ ਜਿਉ ਤਰਵਰ ਕੀ ਛਾਏ ॥੧॥ Grih Mandhar Sanpai Jo Dheesai Jio Tharavar Kee Shhaaeae ||1|| Households, mansions and wealth - whatever is seen, is like the shade of a tree. 3. Rehat / Sheel - rehat is a word usually used only for amritdharis but in fact this should be applicable to anyone who claims to be a sikh - the real benefit of a life of virtue that one can go deeper into simran with much less wandering of the mind. At the minimum the following precepts should be observed (i) Earn only by honest means (haq paraya nanaka us sooar us gai ) , live simply and share with those in need.(ghal khaye kich hatho de nanak rah pachane soi) (ii) No sexual misconduct (not even rolling in thoughts of lust ) ( par treya roop na nekhai naitra) (iii) Right speech - no lying, slander, harsh or useless talk (such as about politics, movies, religion etc) (iv) No harm to other beings (ਦੂਖੁ ਨ ਦੇਈ ਕਿਸੈ ਜੀਅ ਪਤਿ ਸਿਉ ਘਰਿ ਜਾਵਉ ॥) (v) No use of intoxicants. Human life is extremely rare we must not lose track of the final goal of this precious gift. ਇਹੁ ਮਾਣਸ ਜਨਮੁ ਦੁਲੰਭੁ ਹੈ ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਸਭੁ ਜਾਏ ॥
  4. I read this by Bhai Kulbir Singh ji and it is clearly shows that evolution is against Sikhi. "I read the theory of evolution many years ago and one of the notion it preaches is that species can evolute to higher species e.g. humans have originated from apes. This theory does not seem to be according to Gurmat because all the 8.4 million life forms were formed at once and not through evolution. Some life forms may be active and some dormant, at a given time but no life forms converted to other life forms. It just can't. Dogs cannot give birth to cats and insects cannot give birth to lizards.The human form has Dasam Duaar, Nabh Kamal, that no other life form has. If we believe in theory of evolution, we will then have to believe that Dasam Duaar and Nabh Kamal were products of evolution and formed itself. Furthermore, matter is not animate and as thus does not have intelligence, nor it can think or plan. The theory of evolution is totally contrary to Gurmat. In the evolution theory, matter is intelligent and in Gurmat theory, matter is dead.The evolution theory as invented by Charles Darwin and as propagated by science today is not in accordance with Gurmat. Gurmat believes in the evolution or devolution of the Jeev-Aatma depending on its Karma but the life-forms or the species don't evolve into something else. Gurbani says that the whole creation has 8.4 million life forms (life forms or Joonis are not same as species) and this has been the truth from the beginning. At any given time there have been 8.4 million life forms. If we believe that one life form evolves to another, then there would be an additional life-form thereby violating the Gurmat principle that states that there are fixed 8.4 million life forms.These Chaurasi Lakh life forms not all active at any given time. Some are dormant and some are active but all are existent at any given time.Gurmat does not promote the idea that humans have evolved from Baandars (monkeys). Jo kichh paaiya so ika Vaar.The kids brought up in Western countries have become Mutaasir (influenced) by the modern education that promotes such anti Gurmat notions like evolution and homosexuality etc.ਲਖ ਚਉਰਾਸੀਹ ਮੇਦਨੀ ਘਟੈ ਨ ਵਧੈ ਉਤਾਹਿ ॥The above Pankiti clearly states not only that there are 8.4 million life forms but also that this number does not go up or down. There are more such Pankitis as well but for a Sikh just one Pankiti will suffice.Now if we believe that one life-form can evolve or devolve to something else, then we have to accept that a new life-form has been created and this will violate the above Hukam of Guru Sahib.I am not an expert on the evolution theory but know that one of the claims it has made is that humans have possibly evolved from Baandars (monkeys). The human life form is very special and as per Gurbani this life form is the doorway to Vaheguru and only in this life form it is possible to meet Vaheguru and for this reason this body has secret Dasam Duaar or the mystical tenth door. How did the genetic mutation or whatever it is called, caused to create a life form that contains something as specific as the Dasam Duaar?It is the Jeev-Aatma that goes through different life forms and but the life forms don't evolve to different life forms. A cat is going to stay a cat and will not become a dog, no matter what. Yes within the parameters of the cat life form, it may become large, small, Black, White etc. but it cannot become a different life form.What to talk about and trust science that changes every now and then. Now with the discovery of the so called "god particle" it has rendered many old theories obsolete. The theory of evolution is just a theory and nothing else. Most of it including its concept of the survival of the fittest is garbage. According to Gurbani, Vaheguru is Deena Naath and Ghareeb Nivaaz. He would never allow the survival of the strong just because of their strongness. He according to His will may many times let the biggest underdog to survive and let the fittest perish. Darwin's evolution theory is for Manmukhs who believe that Vaheguru jee is not leading the world and that it came into being and evolved to this level as part of some accidental chemical reactions. Can we believe such nonsense when we know that even a leaf does not move without Vaheguru's will?Kulbir Singh" we should be telling this to more people and not just agreeing with whatever scientists say. The theory of evolution is nonsense when you think about it and I'm going to link some videos about it and how it is false and how this directly proves an intelligent designer Even further, apparently even if evolution were to be a viable process, it would take longer than it takes the sun to burn out. And that doesn't even account for Dasam Duaar etc. Be aware of these theories and know that they are wrong.
  5. Daas has started a site with gurmat quotes - feel free to log in and provide feedback, feature suggestions etc. http://quotesdev.us-west-2.elasticbeanstalk.com Working on a smartphone app which will prompt users with a tuk every hour. Also coming raag music with shabad expalantions and networking with fellow minded gurmukhs. In phase 2 will make a chatbot where you can discuss your problems with the guru.
  6. Looking for tech savvy sevadars - I want to get an app developed in ionic or react native (that works on all major platforms), that would notify every 1 hour (or another interval configured by the user) with a gurbani quote and small blurb about how to incorporate the teaching in their day to day life. I do have the database of about 70 tuqs for now but will keep updating it regularly , the app will update its database from the central source every week or so. This way technology will help us stay constantly in touch with the guru and we will spend more of our breaths in a connected fashion.
  7. We must practise this every morning - throw away the wrong notions of =- Being a separate self, Ek Mool na boojhan Aapna unhonda aap genaende || difference between human and non humans, difference between living and nong living and A life limited by birth and death - Na kich janame Na kich mare || First is the idea that I am this body, this body is me or, this body is mine and it belongs to me. We say these things based on the notion that I am; But a better statement would be, I inter-am. Its closer to the truth in the light of interconnectedness; we see there is no separate self that can exist by itself. You cannot exist without your parents, your ancestors, food, water, air, earth, and everything else in the cosmos. By looking deeply into the nature of reality, we can throw away the notion. The second notion the Diamond Sutra advises us to throw away is the notion of person or human being. When we look into the human being, we see animal ancestors, we see plant and mineral ancestors. A human is made of non-human elements. If we take away the non-human elements, the human being would no longer be there. This is the oldest teaching on deep ecology. In order to protect the human being, you have to protect what is not human. Discriminating between human and nature is a wrong view. The third notion is that of living beings. We distinguish living beings from non-living beings. We distinguish humans and animals from plants and minerals. But looking deeply into living beings, we see elements that we call non-living beings: plants and minerals. You can see that plants and minerals are also alive. After meditation we see there's no real frontier separating living beings and so-called non-living beings. The fourth notion to be thrown away is the notion of life span. We believe that we are born at one point in time, that we shall die at another point in time, and that in between is our life span. Most of us believe we'll spend sevety, eightly, nnety, one hundred years on this planet and then we'll be gone. But when we look deeply, we see this is a wrong perception. In our mind, to be born means that from nothing we become something, to die means that from something we become nothing; and from someone we become no one. But a cloud cannot be born; it has come from the water in the rivers and oceans, and dust and the heat of the sun ha

  9. Waheguru ji Ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh, Does anyone know of the Ardas done at sachkand Sri hazoor sahib, if so could you reply with a romanised version with the names of the gurdwareh mentioned in the ardas, thanks Bhul chuk maf Karo ji
  10. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Found this article, and I do think it relates to some things going on among Sikhs today. As much as 70% of Thailand Sikhs have Non-Sikh names there. http://m.timesofindia.com/city/chandigarh/sikhs-adopt-thai-names-to-gel-with-local-populace-in-thailand/articleshow/59994438.cms
  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 assistance. I will be adding more on, the first post is just intro. Some important things to note: 1. Why does someone have Kaam? Since the beginning of time, you have been carrying the power of Haumai, and from Haumai comes the 5 evils, one of these being Kaam and Kaam especially effects us, because of we have usually wanted to stay productive with reproduction and so in possibly many animal lives, we've been having sex like crazy people, these traits carried on till we became human, (which in a way tells us why some people have crazy fetishes). 2. Is Masturbation and Pornography related? My experience on this has been that they are only slightly related, but the reasons for them are different. Porn acts as a depresent; which means it's meant to take something from you; while masturbation happens due to circumstance-based. You can do both exclusively, but due to the nature of porn both usually go together. 3. Is there hope? This is the good news, and something we can be grateful for. That is the blessing of the greatest Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji holding our hands and freeing us from all our past deeds, and gives our life true meaning instead of being Ghulamis to our own problems. The greatness of being a Sikh can not be comprehended into normal thoughts or words, and even Kaam himself surrenders at the name of the blessed Guru. This is just a tiny intro on the basis of the issue, I plan to delve further into it, what my experience has been, why it's not going to be easy, and why there is hope for anyone if there can be hope for someone like me.
  12. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Found some direct corruption by RSS towards Sikh information.

  15. Today we are releasing a very relevant video that explains why makeup, body enhancements and other artificial and worldly ways to decorate one’s body are not in accordance with Gurmat. This video by Bibi Sanmukh Kaur, a young Canadian born Gursikh bibi, is geared towards Amritdhari bibian who are not fully convinced why they should not use modern techniques to do makeup, wear ornaments and do other body decorations.

  16. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Why is it hard to inspire others to live a Gurmukh lifestyle, when it's meant to be good for people? Also why don't most people learn lovingly, but only want to learn when there is something else involved, (pressure to learn). I hope everyone improves and tries to follow Guru Sahib, but sometimes it just fails. How can I improve myself, so that more people are willing to listen? I feel my heart is in the right place, but nothing happens. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  17. baba Hardev SIngh Lulowale's words on the state of kaum and gurdwarey:
  18. Why do some Pakhandi Babas use Sikh Gurbani to brainwash the innocent? Recently on Youtube I looked-up: "bahut janam bichde the madho", and saw so many Pakhandi Babas on the list of recommended, ranging from Radha Swami, Ravidassia, and some random Pakhandi Babas there and there. If they want to use Sikh bani they should at least promote the idea of Gurmat to bring people to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib, not themselves.

    Caste in Sikh Minds

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Can anyone explain logically why caste still exists in our Panth? Especially among those who tell everyone caste doesn't exist to the outside, but when it comes for actually putting it into practice they forget everything about the right side. There are Hindus today who value their personal caste less than some Sikhs which is just depressing if you asked anyone. Also how can we logically combat this idea in some old-aged Pakhandis minds. Especially among Pakhandidharis, (those who took Amrit yet still keep Non-Sikh practices), which makes people question the need for Amrit. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  20. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Can anyone tell me how to stop being distracted during Amrit Vela; (sometimes I get sleepy, or other times I think about what I'll do during the day when the sun is up, or other nonsense while doing Gurmantar Jaap). Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  21. 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!
  22. There are two schools of spirituality - which one do you think sikhi belong to Gyaan marg vs bhakti marg (i) No Symbols of god - he is the universe vs God definitely needs a symbol For sikhs it has become Saroop of sggs and the confines of gurdwara (ii) No rituals are ever needed vs Rituals are a must In sikhi context we have started chavar, akahand paths, jot, sukhasan , prakash , expensive palkis , keep the saroop in AC / blankets (e.g I don't keep my phone in AC which also has the same SGGS in electronic format ) (iii) Meditation is the only way to find him - Pancha ka gur ek dhyan vs chanting or reciting (while mind is wandering in thorughts) or paying others to recite for you (as in outsourced akhand paths ) (iv) No miracles - only laws of nature which do not discriminate against materialistic person or favor spiritual one vs For your worldly needs beseech god - e.g cure diseases, pass exams , success in business etc. (v) No sectarianism - all humanity is absolutely one (Na ko hindu na musalmaan) vs A sect is almost always formed because our ego makes us gel with people who follow same symbolism as us , so now we have sikhi becoming a sect and not much of a way to live a full life and cut the cycle of rebirths.
