  1. This thread can be used to share gurpurabs, important dates, etc. from our ithihaas
  2. During COVID, we all saw how various Sikhs and Sikh NGOs came forward to help people of all religions,castes,etc as its our belief to do so. Delhi gurudwara donated gold and silvers worth crores to build hospital and recently inaugurated free hundred bed dialysis center. Good. Very Good. But where all these charity goes when sikhs in punjab themselves are suffering due to daily farmers suicides, families destroyed due to fake encounters, drugs, poor employment opportunities, immigration,etc. When we are in trouble, nobody comes to help. Not even our own and nor the ones whom we help

  4. NOTE: This post is a work in progress Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Often times I hear Non-Sikhs bring up common arguments against Sikhi, and as someone who likes to create a lot online resource hubs for Sikhs, I am taking it upon myself to create a list of Q/A's. I recently got a series of arguments (posing as questions) from an anonymous user on the Sikh Reddit who was allegedly Ex-Sikh. He frequently made references to Islam, and also claimed that he had done a lot of research on his "questions", yet the questions themselves seem as if they are taken from wi
  5. https://nypost.com/2021/05/25/prison-guards-forcibly-shaved-sikh-mans-beard-lawsuit/ By Mark Lungariello May 25, 2021 | 9:10pm | Updated Enlarge Image Surjit Singh reportedly asked to have his throat cut before his beard.Sikh Coalition Arizona prison guards restrained a 64-year-old Sikh man and forcibly shaved off his beard — in violation of his religious beliefs, a federal complaint filed Monday said. Attorneys for Surjit Singh are calling for a probe into the Aug. 25, 2020 incident by the US Department of Justice for what they call “egregious r
  6. Ughh its a hindu look alike of Harmandar sahib in amritsar , in amritsar. Recently they covered it with gold fully Also hindoos have managed to twist Badals arms into providing similar front heritage walk for durgiana temple as it was recently for harmandar sahib Reminds me of Gulab Singh of Jammu and other such DOGras who must have twisted Ranjit singh's arms into giving them autocracy . When they asked us for it , we gave them , and when we asked for it from hindoos , these bloody rats gave us bullets .
  7. I have heard it was like a poison for aurangzeb who was said to have been struck with emotional torment after reading it .
  8. 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!
  9. Wjkk Wjkf, Does anyone know of any document, pdf, or website that has all the words that appear in japji sahib divided by muhaarni? So a list of all the Mukhtas, then everything with kanna, then siharee, biharee, etc. Thanks
  10. I have been reading some of books about Sikhi recently and I was wondering if W.H McLeod is a good author and which of his books shall I read?
  11. can someone explain if suraj parkash is right or wrong? why is it reliable if it was written in 1843, which was way after guru jis time. I follow taksal maryada and i havent quite understood why the taksal has chosen to do suraj parkash parchar.
  12. I am pretty skeptical that sikhs cant follow, since islam and sikhi are so different but I was still pondering. When growing up in the 90s it was very common to see muslim men in kurta pajama and women in burqa . However seeing the growing modernization in their young generation and the arab fancy among subcontinental muslims , they have become even more kattad or should i say modest in their clothing sense. And to attract youth to it , they have opened up so many stores and brands that try to hybridize the old fashioned boring islamic wear -- ankle length gowns for men and burqa for wome
  13. A great book in English giving counterpoints to arguments made by Hindus - http://discoversikhism.com/sikh_library/english/sikhs_we_are_not_hindus.html Also if anyone wants to share any other arguments made by others we can give counterpoints if needed.
  14. Though I am getting spiritual with time but often my mind gets agitated seeing the present conditions and questions start coming up... Our present times are very dangerous considering the farms bills can literally wipe out sikh farmers economically in Punjab. Our elders are sitting on roads for past 4 months with over 350 dead when it was time for them to live relaxed life. But our enemies continue to thrive in positions of power. Leader who cheated us are leading good lives with sufficient wealth for several generations. You may say, akal purkh will do justice... But when our s
  15. Just posting this up to make it easier for sikhs to find out about how we are meant to celebrate Navratri and Dusshera. There is actually something similar for Diwali as well where Dasvin 10th Patshah actually uses the word 'Diwali'! Hopefully I will find it before Diwali. https://www.facebook.com/652447751445011/photos/navratri-and-dushera-are-days-to-do-shastra-puja-the-nine-nights-of-naurate-star/995158367173946/

  17. As some of us know, that the past year Panth faced the losses of some gurmukhs, namely Bhai Nirmal Singh Khalsa, and then Baba Mohan Singh jee Bhindranwale. I wonder who is the current mukhi of the taksali jatha previously under Giani Baba Mohan Singh jee. More info on his jeevani other than the vague stuff on internet would be appreciated. What were his views on dharam yudh morcha? Was he at good terms with Sant Kartar Singh jee? (I would assume so, since his dastarbandi saw many mahapurkh gursikh jeevani sikhs in attendance) It is unfortunate so much of his katha and vichaaran are unrec

  20. Sat Sri Akaal. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. This video depicts and portrays the complications and hardships I've witnessed and experienced throughout my life. Moreover, I'm oblivious and wary about how majority of the sangat beholded and contemplated these issues during their schooling years and in a nutshell in life. I'm not solely the only one who underwent these problems and even in a working environment it is these prevalent situations where institutional racism occurs due to 9/11 attack on Twin Towers in a western nation. Therefore, this is just the commencing of my Yo
  21. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਹਿ This isn’t a promotion but I’ve been following the Sikhi Forums online and loved them. I’ve always looked for a platform which allows sangat to connect. I came across Discord and I didn’t think my effort of creating a space for the Sikh community would go far but within 5 days it gained 300 members so I wanted to invite some of those interested . Platform is to further extend the reach of Sikhi so we can spread and raise awareness of the ancient knowledge passed down by our Gurus, warriors, saints, and scholars. This server is part of my e
  22. I have full faith in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as a Guru because Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave “Gaddi” to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. But, this belief is based upon the “Saakhi’s” stories, I heard from preachers and modern historians. They say Guru ji gave gaddi at Nanded (Hazur Sahib) in 1708. The point is where is ir written? In which authentic contemporary or old histoey books? Today by chance I came across the Punjabi and English Translation of “Gur Sobha” book by Senapati, a contemporary poet & historian in the court of Guru Gobind Singh Ji which suggests otherwise. I suggest everybody to

    Faith

    Hi, I am a born Sikh, but the problem Is that my faith on sikhi is wavering. I keep thinking of other religions, like Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. I think it's the fear of hell. I don't know how to explain to but I think its seeing other people of other faiths being so confident in their religion unlike me with sikhi. Any help would be good, I don't like that I feel like this.
  24. How can one socialise in the United Kingdom while also being a true Singh? Im 16 and I almost always get looks and It feels like it's hard to make friends here. At one point I was thinking of trimming my beard and now that I look back at it, I realise how stupid I was. I don't want to loose my identity and all that the guru's taught us.
  25. @GurjantGnostic @californiasardar what do you think are the main differences in the way Sikhs are viewed in your country vs UK? over here, most of the older generations know something about Sikhs - not everyone for sure, some think we are Hindus or confuse us with Muslims (!) or Arabs(!) The USA has little connected empirical history with Sikhs and Sikh populations have been generally more spread out. Also, you have significant white convert population. Outside of educated types, do you think most Americans don’t know about Sikhs and if so, do they think when they
