  1. This is for those who may be interested, I have had the opportunity to write a number of books recently, initially they were for sponsors of the podcasts but due to demand I have decided to put some of them out on a self publication site. Slowly they will increase in number with the Sarkutavali Teeka and Gagar Cho sagar also being added in June and August respetively. At the moment there are three books available to purchase which are the 'Sahaskriti and Gatha Teeka by Mahant Ganesha Singh', 'Matra by Baba Sri Chand Ji' and 'The Jap Ji Sahib Katha 01 - Mul Mantra Katha by Sant Gurbachan Singh Bhindrawale' They are all on the following link https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?contributorId=1393200 Thank you, and just so you anyone is aware there is no profit for these books as they all go back into the Sikhism in Snippits podcast
  2. Guru pyaari saadh sangat ji,Waheguru ji ka khalsaWaheguru ji ki fatehHere, I am a 26 year old sikh girl. i have commited 3 of the 4 bujjer kureth, I have committed many sins, lied to my parents, i did not know the value of my life, that each breath that waheguru is blessing me with is precious, that this human life is meant for meeting the lord guru thats residing in all of us.I have sinned again and again, Now I fear for the jamdoot and the 84 lakh joon that one goes through after committing those kirehit.I wish i knew that what i was getting involved in was really harmful for my spiritual health, but i was very naive.Pyari sangat, last year, I started speaking online with this guy who seemed to be very spiritual knowing alot about sikhi, seeming as though he wish me well and gave good life advice, little did i know that guy would turn out to be a person that would threaten me and coerce me with blackmails later, and was a part of the sex trafficking ring in Brampton.I would’ve never thought this would happen to me, but i got really scared as this person would happen to know my location, and threaten me about hurting me and my family, he was a part of the organised crime syndicate in brampton, they later hacked my phone and all my documents and ids was in itPlease advise me what i could do in this situation. Im not in canada at the moment, but when i do go back im scared this person would somehow find my location and abduct me or something.I do not have much evidence left of the person since i found out that he was part of the sex ring and he later hacked my phone through phishing messages that i clicked on accidentally as i was receiving threatening calls from various unknown numbers who were part of his gang, they even threatened to jump me and send some of my personal pictures to all my contacts in my phone.My parents are understanding and they still hugged me and are ready to help me but i dont have much evidence to prove, plus my phone had so many pictures of me of all sorts, im scared he would use that against me.As for my identities being stolen i had copies of my passport on my phone, copies of my pr card, my drivers licence my college certificates and literally every information about my life and all my contacts. Im scared of the things he could to use all that information against me, they could me selling copies of my fake passprt on the dark web as im writing this, i do not know much about what i could do in this situation, i trued talking to the police on the phone but they need evidence, i dont know the persons real name, he was using a fake name the whole time i later found out.I do know his address but he dont live there no more.Im safe right now but im scared what could happen when i do go back to canada, would i be prosecuted for offences i did not commit, since those criminal gangs have my id ?Would i be stopped at the airport, i have no idea..please if someone could give me some insight, in this situation,All i want to do is go back to canada, move on with my life, get a job, be independent, and live happily but im scared because these sex trafickers are masters of manipulation and i am not going to lie, i do fear for my life as well.Please help me if any of you have any advice for me in this situation thankyou kindlyI was very close to being abducted but thankfully by waheguru jis kirpa i was saved, i prayed and prayed , chaupai sahib so many times in the day and night, it helped me get out of that situation temporarily, im jus scared of what could happen when i go back to Canada This is actually happening and many girls fall victims to these people online, in school sometimes even through mutual friends. My mistake was I talked to a person online i didnt know anything about, and I agree it was a stupid decision, but I dont want that to ruin my entire life. Moderator Note: Had doubts on the above post as being not true but for the sake of having a tiny bit of possibility of being truth, i approved it.
  3. Why do a lot of sikhs bash the sikh missionaries? I am not a supporter, but i want to know more about them, and why are they bashed? This might give me a insight to the situation.
  4. https://www.business-standard.com/article/international/british-sikh-mp-preet-kaur-gill-seeks-urgent-action-on-rising-hate-crimes-122101100147_1.html British Sikh MP Preet Kaur Gill seeks 'urgent action' on rising hate crimes Preet Kaur Gill, an Indian-origin British Sikh MP, in a letter to Home Secretary Suella Braverman, has sought protection and urgent action against rising crimes against the community in the UK. Last Updated at October 11, 2022 09:14 IST Preet Kaur Gill, an Indian-origin British Sikh MP, in a letter to Home Secretary Suella Braverman, has sought protection and urgent action against rising crimes against the community in the UK. Quoting hate crime statistics 2021-22, Gill, an MP from Birmingham, said hate crimes against Sikhs rose by 169 per cent in comparison to a 38 per cent increase in reported religious hate crimes overall. "I am deeply concerned by these new statistics. 301 hate crimes against Sikhs were reported in 2021-22, up from 112 in 2020-21. The 169 per cent increase is compared to a 38 per cent increase in reported religious hate crimes overall", Gill said in the letter, which she released on Twitter on Monday. The 2001 census recorded 336,000 Sikhs living in Britain. Gill said 301 hate crimes against Sikhs were reported in 2021-22, up from 112 in 2020-2021. The letter, which was also addressed to Simon Clarke, secretary of the department for levelling up, housing and communities (DLUHC), comes as 28 year-old Claudio Capos from Manchester was awarded a three year jail term recently for attacking 62-year-old Avtar Singh in broad daylight this June. Singh had suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, a stroke caused by bleeding on the brain and multiple fractures to his cheek, jaw and eye socket as a result of the attack, the BBC reported. Gill, in her letter, urged Braverman to implement the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) report on British Sikhs, which was published in 2020. The report found that the lack of an official term was a contributing factor as to why crimes against Sikhs go largely "unnoticed, unreported and unrecorded". This report, Gill said, was shared with both the home secretary and communities secretary at the time and was an attempt to consult the government on the definition of Anti-Sikh hate. "However, despite multiple promises of substantive response and offers of a meeting, the home office and DLUHC, between them, have failed to respond," she added.
  5. What is causing all the root problems for Sikhs? From weak leaders who can't run Punjab. To society issues in the Punjabi Sikh community back home and in the west Let's look at some main issues. Broken marriages/divorces, domestic violence, crime, sexual offenses/rape adultery,physical and mental health problems, family break downs, money,low morality,ethics and values and the list goes on ect. Feel free to add more issues affecting us. Can we pinpoint a root cause for all the above? I have a theory why Sikhs are failing not just in the west but in more importantly our own homeland Punjab.
  6. Recently I've come across quite a few strange Sikh names online and later IRL at various social functions and get-togethers. At first I thought they were trolls (online on places like YouTube) but then a few months later I'd physically meet people with the same type of names, and they obviously aren't trolling anyone. Har5hit, Hardik, etc. The "Har" aspect is self explanatory and not uncommon, but what's the craic with "5hit" and "dik"? When did these kind of names come into use? Some of these people can also speak decent English, so that confuses me further. They must know their names are verging on dodgy.
  7. sikhs should fly the sikh nishan sahib on 15th august
  8. Guru Nanak is aupposed to have said > “I have seen the light of Muhammad (with my mind's eye). I have seen > the prophet and the messenger of God, in other words, I have > understood his message or imbibed his spirit. After contemplating the > glory of God, my ego was completely eliminated.” But there are two things that Muslims believe in 1. Prophet Muhammad being the last prophet. 2. No reincarnation. Sikhs believe that Guru Nanak was a prophet and they also believe in reincarnation. But Sikhs also believe that Prophet Muhammad was sent by God. If Muhammad was sent by God to spread truth, why did he say that he was the last prophjet and that there was no rebirth? How is this contradiction reconciled by Sikhs?
  9. Looking through historical paintings related to Punjab, in general, and Sikhs, in particular, I have encountered a turban style that looks like the patkas/keskis that small kids war but also has some similarities with dumallas. This style can be seen from very early Sikh paintings of the Gurus and also in late British paintings. The turban helmet of the Sikhs was also based on this style. I think that it stopped being used in the 1850s because the triangular shaped turban; that actually had developed as a cover for the smaller turbans; became immensely popular.
  10. is india using mossad style tactics to assasinate sikh activists around the world
  11. just a little info about me I am a girl and currently i am 17 years old. I took amrit at the age of 13/14. I was going to start 8th grade. 2 years back we went to india and i saw my cousin older than me by 1 year had amrit and his 7 year old sister also had amrit. I wanted to take amrit after seeing them because all the adults were proud of them and I wanted adults to be proud of me as well. Fast forward back into 8th grade my gurudawara was holding amrit sanchaar. I begged my parents to let me take amrit and i desperately wanted to take amrit. Before taking amrit my dad told me I had to start wearing a chuni at home and everywhere so I did. I did not practice doing Nitnem. I only knew of the 5 baanis, but not the other paath i had to do. When i took amrit i felt great and i listened to my nitnem. I am now 17 and I feel more and more detatched to my amrit. I told my older cousins how i am feeling and they said “you were very young and we feel like you rushed it a little” I agree with them. I haven’t done my nitnem at all recently. its been months since i did Paath and i feel like im disrespecting Amrit so much by not doing it. I just cant find the motivation to do it and I feel like I should leave amrit and come back to it when i feel more prepared. I wanna be able to practice my nitnem before i take Amrit again so I feel more prepared. I still love sikhi dont get me wrong, but I feel like it’s so much pressure on me right now and I feel as if i cant make any mistakes without feeling an immense amount of guilt. I would like to take amrit in the future with my husband so that i have a partner to help me and motivate me when I’m not feeling the best. I still want to go to protests and support my religion because i love sikhi i just feel like i need to step away from amrit and come back to it. I am 100% sure i want to come back to Amrit but i just feel like I didn’t take amrit because i loved doing paath and everything, I just did it for more of the attention and wanted to follow my cousins. I still love sikhi, but i want some time to get rid of my young desires. My dad took amrit when he was young and broke it and as an adult he cut his hair and drank alcohol and took amrit again with my mom. I want to tell my parents how I feel but idk how without disappointing them. I feel like my dad will get mad at me but he can’t because he broke it when he was little. Im in a tough spot and i just dont know how to tell my parents. I really need advice.
  12. Today I see many people mix Punjabi culture things with sikhi. Like I personally think that Bhangra, giddha and other things like this aren’t related to sikhi and aren’t allowed for Sikh to do. People need to understand that being Punjabi is different than being a Sikh. Do u guys think that Bhangra and giddha r forbidden in sikhi?? I wanna hear sum more people’s vichar in this
  13. I finished uni a year ago and although I’ve got a great job I’m feeling lost. I listen to path daily and do as much path as I can but I can’t help feel lost. I’m fairly young 22, and sometimes all I think about is marriage and finding a partner and how I may not be able to find the Sikh girl for myself. I’m a mona but I’m not your typical Punjabi guy. I don’t drink I feel it’s wrong and don’t engage in drugs etc smoking. I workout and look after myself and go gym regularly. But feel somethings missing in my life which is making me feel lost. I know this post seems a bit all over the place but it’s sort of how I currently feel.
  14. https://m.tribuneindia.com/news/punjab/kin-of-gidderbaha-man-facing-execution-in-riyadh-plead-for-aid-393662 Kin of Gidderbaha man facing beheading in Saudi Arabia's Riyadh plead for aid Updated At: May 11, 2022 07:52 AM A relative shows Balwinder's photo. Mallan village resident has to pay Rs 2 crore blood money by May 15 Archit Watts Muktsar, May 10 Relatives of a 35-year-old man from Mallan village in Gidderbaha, who faces beheading in Saudi Arabia, are seeking financial assistance from public to save his life. Notably, Balwinder Singh would be executed if he fails to pay Rs 2 crore blood money to a family there by May 15. Balwinder was held guilty of killing a Saudi Arabian national in 2013. He had gone to the Middle East in 2008. Hardeep Singh, cousin of Balwinder, said, “There was a dispute between a Punjabi youth and Saudi Arabian national. Balwinder just intervened. As the Saudi resident tried to kill him with a knife, Balwinder hit him with a stick in self-defence. The man lost his life after four days of hospitalisation. Balwinder was first awarded imprisonment for seven years. Thereafter, the court told him to pay blood money of Rs 2 crore by November 8, 2021, to the deceased’s family or face beheading.” Another cousin, Joginder Singh, said, “After Balwinder pleaded for some time to arrange money, he was given a deadline till May 15. We have collected around Rs 1.3 crore. Balwinder has also arranged Rs 40 lakh. Now, we are short of Rs 30 lakh.” Hardeep said, “We appeal to the philanthropists and the state government to help us. Balwinder is lodged in Riyadh jail.” Gurpreet Kaur, sarpanch, Dadu Mohalla Mallan, said, “The family is speaking truth. They do not have money or land to save the life of Balwinder. We will go to meet the Deputy Commissioner tomorrow in this regard.”

  16. Caveat: this is a broad observation and being framed on an anecdotal basis I'm finding in North American western media, there does not appear to be very much mention of Sikhi among the world's largest religions whenever a discussion of religious relativity occurs (ex. comparative stats for religions, interfaith discussions etc.) I always see a reference to Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, however very little mention of Sikhi amongst the grouping of major world religions. I find it concerning as Sikhi is visibly distinct, there are many Sikh-related issues which can be addressed with greater awareness and understanding such as the constant wave of disproportional hate crimes targeted at Sikhs for their visibly different appearance. Sure there the mention of the occasional 'langar', however i don't think there's much time allocated to explain the context and history behind the practice of Sikhs providing 'langar' and how it connects to the broader ideals of Sikhi. This is not to say there have not been campaigns to educate and inform western media about Sikhs by many Sikh organizations doing great work. A great example is the recent PBS documentary about Guru Nanak Dev Ji - https://gurunanakfilm.com/ which was aired on local PBS stations across the US) It just makes me wonder though if the disregard is intentional or due to a lack of awareness of Sikhi or perhaps a conflation of Sikhi as some part of Snatan Dharma (which I imagine is viewed as what is called Hinduism')? There has been a sustained anti-Sikh campaign by many powers that be over history (with a live campaign in India and Pakistan to distort and downplay Sikh history in history textbooks for example), and historical evidence of attempts to dissolve Sikhi or assume it as part of a larger group (ex. Hinduism). So it wouldn't surprise me if the truth is a mix of ignorance and what many would call 'conspiracy'. This being said, in this age of equity/diversity/inclusion, there's a real opportunity to seize the openness and invitation to the table to present the Sikh identify, and bring greater awareness to it to counter any narrative which is misrepresenting it.
  17. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Why didn't the "Low-Caste" people in India become Sikh, especially with the values of equality and many other things within the path of Gurmat that wasn't in Hinduism or Islam, (especially with the whole superiority complex in both religions, with Indian Muslims considered less than Arab Muslims and Low-Caste Hindus being considered lower caste than Brahman Hindus?) What I'm trying to understand is why these people would just stay being treated like dogs and animals rather than accept Gurmat, (which has complete equality). There were clearly some who did become Sikhs though like the Vanjarias, and others; but there are still more low-caste Hindus than there are Brahmans. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  18. Over 10k likes with lots of Muslims rejoicing. ... only for the Sikh to 'leave' Islam 5 minutes after Shows how genuine their 'street dawah conversion' videos are. They only like to intimidate non Muslims by giving an illusion that their numbers are rising, praying in public places and so on.

  22. New thread..but i've seen some make comments on Panjab Radio... Panjab Radio has been on our household ever since i can remember . Over the years not so as much. Also heard they not transparent about their financials but they deny they always show their accounts and nothing to hide. It cost 6/7 figs to keep it running Thoughts? @Singh1989 @MisterrSingh
  23. Sikh24 reported that Gurdwaras were opening their doors to Manchester jihadi attack victims, and also Sikh cabbies were giving free rides to victims. No biggie, right? Wrong. It seems that at least some Muslims and their sympathizers were upset at highlighting this fact. Check out this tweet by a Sikh about Sikh cabbies giving free rides: https://mobile.twitter.com/SinghLions/status/866930974369632256/photo/1 @dineshjoshi70 applauds @SinghLions and says: Gurudwaras worldwide are messengers of humanity . So are the Sikhs and so do some others. But not Twitter user @ShazU_91. She asks why identify the religion of the good samaritans?: https://mobile.twitter.com/ShazU_91/status/866937798686912512?p=p and: https://mobile.twitter.com/ShazU_91/status/866941338742378496?p=p Actually what really pisses off Miss ShazU_91 is that normal people appreciate Sikhs' warm and giving personalities and the fact that they are not bombing average British people, and people are figuring out the difference between Sikhs and Muslim, even people like Katie Hopkins in her latest article: What Miss ShazU_91 wants is a united colored peoples front where whenever the latest Islamic terror attack occurs, everybody who isn't white (West Indians, Chinese and other orientals, aboriginals from various places, Indians including Sikhs, Pakistanis, middle-easterners, Africans, North Africans, Latinos, etc.) get lumped into a single category, and no further distinctions are made. And I don't think we should give her what she wants.
  24. ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਮੁਤਾਬਿਕ: ਸਿੱਖ ਪੰਥ ਦੀ ਵਿਆਖਿਆ | ਠਾਕੁਰ ਦਲੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ गुरबानी के अनुसार: सिख पंथ की व्याख्या | ठाकुर दलीप सिंघ जी ਇਸ ਵੀਡੀਓ ਵਿੱਚ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਦਲੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਨੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਮੁਤਾਬਿਕ ਸਿੱਖ ਪੰਥ ਇੱਕ ਭਗਤੀ ਮਾਰਗ ਅਤੇ ਸੰਤ ਮੱਤ ਹੈ। ਸਿੱਖ ਪੰਥ ਵਿੱਚ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਭਗਤੀ, ਨਾਮ ਜਪਣਾ ਅਤੇ ਕੀਰਤਨ ਕਰਨ ਨੂੰ ਸਰਵੋਤਮ ਮੰਨਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ। ਅਸਾਡੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਸਾਹਿਬਾਨਾਂ ਨੇ ਅਸਾਨੂੰ ਭਗਤ ਬਣਨ ਦਾ ਉਪਦੇਸ਼ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਭਗਤ ਹੀ ਬਣਾਇਆ ਹੈ। ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਬਹੁਤ ਥਾਂਵਾ 'ਤੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਇਹ ਵੀ ਹੁਕਮ ਕਰਦੇ ਹਨ ਕਿ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਣ ਅਤੇ ਜਪਾਉਣ ਵਾਲਿਆਂ ਦੀ, ਕੀਰਤਨ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲਿਆਂ ਦੀ, ਕਥਾਵਾਚਕਾਂ ਦੀ, ਚੰਗੇ ਕਰਮ ਕਰਨ ਅਤੇ ਕਰਵਾਉਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਸਾਧਾਂ ਦੀ ਪੂਜਾ ਕਰੋ। इस वीडियो में ठाकुर दलीप सिंघ जी ने बताया है कि गुरुवाणी अनुसार सिख पंथ एक भक्ति मार्ग और संत मत है। सिख पंथ में प्रभु भगती, नाम जपने वाले और कीर्तन करने वाले को सर्वश्रेष्ठ माना गया है। हमारे सतगुरु साहिबानों ने हमें भगत बनने का ही उपदेश दिया और हमें भगत ही बनाया है। गुरुवाणी में अनेक स्थानों पर सतगुरु जी हमें यह भी हुक्म करते हैं कि हमें नाम जपने व जपवाने वालों, कीर्तन करने वालों, कथावाचकों, अच्छे कर्म करने व करवाने वाले साधु संतों की पूजा करें। Thakur Dalip Singh Ji explains in this video why Sikh Panth is a path of devotion and Sant Mat according to Gurbani. Prabhu Bhagti, Naam Japna, and Kirtan are regarded as the best by the Sikh Panth. Our Satguru Sahibs have both taught and created us to be Bhagats. Satguru Ji also commands us to worship those who chant and recite Naam, those who perform kirtan, narrators, saints, and saints who do good deeds and get things done in numerous places throughout Gurbani.
