Guest posted a topic in WHAT'S HAPPENING?I don't think he's trying to convert me. But I see it has arabic and also its english translation side by side . I don't know what I should be doing with it . No disrespect intended . I am reading into it . Although it has too many primitive stories of Abrahamic prophets . But at the same time I respect all religions . In the past I have read vedantic lliterature sometimes, but first time I am gifted an abrahamic text.
I've read on this forum and have met certain people in real life claim that the Dasam Granth should be placed in Gurudwaras and teachings from it should be used in life. Although I can argue that many concepts and teachings are already practiced from the Dasam Granth such as Khalsa being the most notable, as well as certain Ardas being found in the Granth, my question is really about the debate for the consideration of the Dasam Granth. If the decision has been made by Guru Saheb himself, then why are people challenging it? I mean if the teachings in the Dasam Granth were meant to apply to Sikhs for eternity, then Guru Saheb could have himself added them into the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, however he chose not to and did not give the Gurgaddi to the Dasam Granth either. So, if I'm not being ignorant, people should not be seeking the Dasam Granth for knowledge, when, as per the Guru, the Guru Granth Sahib Ji is the be-all and end-all. If, however, I am missing some crucial information and knowledge, please explain and discuss.
For those who don't know, Matra Sahib is the scripture of the Udasi sect. They attribute it to Baba Shri Chand. They often do parkash of it, like we parkash Guru Granth Sahib. Most of their prayers, like their Aarti, come from this scripture. I am posting some shabads sung by Bhai Davinder Singh Nirman from this granth.
