Panj Piyareeaa instead of Panj Piyaray

Waheguru Jee Ka Khalsa Waheguru Jee Kee Fatah

Sadhsangat,

AKJ's in Leicester are doing my head in saying it is ok to have five females initiate the khalsa as taking the place of the five beloved. Sant Baba Hari Singh Jee took that motion to bits and put them straight. I will hook Gurmat Veechar with that Katha as i have it.

What are you view on it. Are you for againts or not sure. Give us reasons for your thoughts. Hopefully this will some eye brows and emotions

Waheguru Jee Ka Khalsa Waheguru Jee Kee Fatah

Baba Hari Singh Jee did katha of what took place in 1699 with the creation of the khalsa. During the events five males got up and gave their heads to the guru. After this guru jee gave their raj to the panj piyaray. They also called the females kaur. Baba Hari Singh Jee said that Kaur means the child of a king other then the first born. They are always the child of the king but when he passes away they have no throne or right to the kingdom. Only the first born gets the supreme control over the kingdom and people.

Baba Hari Singh Jee explained that the males got the raj and Guru ji said the females will also be the children of the master but will never be able to appoint another as they have no control over the kingdom they are handing over.

They also went into an old story from the Dharamshasters about the difference between men and women on birth and on motherhood.

I'd suggest waiting for the Katha to come onto the net for the full.

Actually if AKJ are doing this in UK then i got one thing to say

"GO AKj" :umm:

To our Waheguru and Guru sahibs, both sikh male and female are Pyare. Just because the gender difference , you can't say that one does not have the right to be one of the panj payares.

I don't agree with anyone stopping female singhiyans from being one of the panj pyare because i can't see any justification for it. Please give ur reason as to why females can't

be Panj payariyans?

Baba Hari Singh Jee explained that the males got the raj and Guru ji said the females will also be the children of the master but will never be able to appoint another as they have no control over the kingdom they are handing over.

hmmm,Mai Bhago ji had no control over the singh she led to fight against Mughals.

Sikhi offers 100% equality to both sexes and its up to them to demand it when someone is gender discreminating .

Sadhsangat,

I do not have the knowledge needed to argue with you. I will post the katha to Gurmat Veerchar and hopefully soon you will be able to listen to it yourself.

Waheguru ji ka khalsa

Waheguru ji ki fateh!

I agree with Kam!! wubb.gif

I don't have anything against women being Guru sahib's panj pyari. I see both men and women as equal. BUT we have to live according to the hukam of our dasve patshah, Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj. He initiated the Khalsa, thru the panj pyaray, not thru the panj pyari. I don't know what sort of a impact this will have, but its out of context of Sikhi, obviously we should see both men and women as equal, but Guru sahib laid the foundation for taking amrit in the future, and if we try to change that or mend it in any way, we are going against the hukam. rolleyes.gif If there was any woman who got up to sacrifice her head for Guru ji, then there would be a woman in the panj pyaray as well. B)

Bhul chuk maaf!

Yes but at that time women didn't use to goto school, Does that mean that same thing shud happen now?

Just because no woman came forward that day, i don't think their right to join Panj pyaaree was taken away :umm:

I also agree with kam and khalsa.

Its all about following hakum of guroo sahiban. Its not like we should stuck our nose and sing praises of woman equality in this matter.

We all know orginal panj pyareiz was male not female. So who are they to change the maryada??

Akj and 3HO doing the same thing.

Really sad indeed.

I can't believe u guys ohmy.gif Guru ji's Hukam?

Did Guru ji say that Women can't be panj pyaares? If u can show me that i will agree with u.

It was more an guroo maryada than a hakum.

Amardeep singh,

you show me panj pyarie being as female in guroo's time..during the period of 1699 to 1708.

Any historical facts?

N30 Veer u know as well as i know, Common Woman had to follow watever the men said. So its very unlikely they wud have allowed their women to become Panj piyariyas.

But can u explain wat Guru Maryada is?

Each time Sacche Patshah Guru Gobind Singh asked for a head on Baisakhi 1699, only men stood up to voluntarily offer their heads, no women stood up.Five men, hence Guru-Khalsa = five Amritdhari men.

Five Amritdhari women is not Guru-Khalsa.This is not a sexism issue, you can make it into one if you want to.

Yea Hari made a valid point!! Its not a sexism issue, you can make it that if you want.

It doesn't matter if the society has evolved so much, and in some cases women exceed men, but who are you to say women should be the panj pyaray. Guru sahib, gave a hukam, and we are mere keeday (insects) of Guru sahib, how can we even think about changing/altering his command? rolleyes.gif

Ok look, Guru Nanak Dev ji maharaj already claimed Women are equal to Men, then if the women in Sikhi at the time of Guru Gobind Singh ji know all this why didn't they stand up and say women are equal to man, according to the founder of this religion, and I want to be one of the panj pyaray.

I understand women/men are equal partners and equal family members in the khalsa family, BUT the authority to give amrit to someone else only holds in the 'PANJ PYARAY' not the 'PANJ PYARIYA'.

Bhul chuk maaf jee!!

I'm a mere fool~~ :umm: @

I think if a woman had offered her head as the Guru asked we may be looking at a different story. However Hukam is huKam. I know is it the Guru's Hukam and we are to be bound by it.

For the fact of showing the sangat proof is astonishing. You speak like those without any faith who say show me God and then i shall follow. This shouldn't be the case in Sikhi.

These issues have onl come up in the last 50 years thanks to civil rights movements. Remember the roots of Sikhism are deep and these things should not be ripped apart due to what a person thinks. We are all susceptable to temptation and unless you have gian you will get things wrong so i think we should all continue with the path that the Guru showed us.

I hope i have not caused any one any offence

    • 1. One of the issues Sikhs face today is turning intellectual questions into ideological questions.  The debates around dasam granth, meat, raag mala are a century old at least. Sant Gurbachan singh, bhai randheer singh all wrote about the issue or decided it was not solvable in the 1900s. Recently we had the calendar debate. It was something people should have argued about back and forth, thought about, deliberated etc. Instead it turns into an us vs them thing. And ppl are excommunicated and split into different camps over it. Its not even a theological issue, its worldly. About how accurate certain calendars are. Same thing with dasam granth. In the beginning people had legit questions. But ppl were excommunicated and panth split over it. Before the right side came up with answers and conferences. But it was too late. It had become too polarizing.  2. People either being too realist or too idealist. There should be a balance. The realist want to cancel langar and help to other communities because they think we should help sikhs first. While a valid arguement, they should realize the benefit of these charity langars. It unites most sikhs. From the most liberal, athiest sikh to the most traditional. All will say it is the greatness of sikhi. All will rise up to take credit, that yup thats who we sikhs are,.when its on the news, praised by non sikhs. It gives positive branding and awareness. Which we sikhs in the USA know the importance of post-911. And so will the UK ppl when the racist Right becomes strong. To be not lumped in with terrorists or muslims, I would pay any price. And khalsa aid is a small price to pay.  And the idealist that believe muslims are no danger. That all religions are equal. That banning inter faith marriages is sacrilegious. Are also idiots. But can be fixed. Can be shown the light. Just show  them how ugly the world is. Show them the muslims promoting love jihad, grooming etc. They will change. But the realist, narrowminded pessimist will bring down the panth to their low level and permeate it with misery. Thats why BoS bhai jagraj singh was a sucess. He brought hope that the panth can change be better, live up to its ideals with practical ideas. Also realist parents will not let their kids keep hair or get too religious as they think it will hinder their kids in life.  The idealist parents will not teach their kids about harsh realities so they are gullible. Will trust easily. And be losers with 3 ft dumalleh. Will vote for referendum 2020 when it will cause economic collapse, or persecution of sikhs. They dont care abt peoples livelihood or lives only the 'sikhi' matters. These get most ppl disillusioned and turn their back on sikhi. 3. We dont have enough freedom of religion. We are for it for people of other faiths but not our own. Let people follow sikhi the way they want. Let them question it and leave it. Let them dabble. Just have some hard and fast rules they cant cross. No deh dhaari guru, no disrespect of the Gurus or SGGS.  Let their be missonaries and nihangs and taksalis and akjs. The diversity is important. But dont try to convince the whole panth that only ur way is right. That everyone should eat chatka meat and being vegetarian is wrong. Or chatka is wrong.  It should be,.that is how they do things. This is how we do it. But we still brothers. 4. We need to stop thinking and preaching that taking amrit is the goal. There are more sikhs who will never take amrit. We need to teach them how to still be sikh. Let have minimum rehit that every sikh, non-amridhari included, must follow. This will decrease the liberal sikhs who are clueless. And has the potential to create a strong sikh identiy like that of muslims Every sikh must not belive in anyone other than SGGS. Must do japji sahib or 5 mool mantar daily. Must teach their kids sikh history and panjabi ie panjabi classes or at home. Try to not defame sikhi and try to be honest, hardworking, etc. Dont give up but at least decrease fraud and other sins.  Absolutely give up drugs. And alcohol. U cant call urself sikh if u drink. Say i will be sikh someday when i quit. (We need to decrease alcoholism and get rid of the thinking that sikhs and alcohol go together. So we need to be harsh abt it. So not passed on to next gen) And that sikhi is not just about giving up things. Sikhi can help you lead a more successful life without diseases and troubles. If u do this: (sukhmani sahib daily and not sure what else. Seva? Sikh scholars can figure this out) 5. The overlap between different culture and sikhs. Make it clear cut what is sikhi and what is not. If we do this, one day we will be able to.get afghan sikhs to give up cousin marrying practices.  If we first get rid of all the panjabi baggage: drinking, jatt stuff ( not caste stuff. Thats not really relevant. Lets be honest. No one hates shudras or thinks tarkhaan should only do woodwork. The only caste stuff that is left is being proud of being jatt) bhangra, honor killings, female infanticide, dowry,  treating womens side of family.as inferior etc. People can be panjabi and sikh. so  can do bhangra as a sikh. Like someone learning karate or step dancing or zumba. But everyone should be clear its a nonsikh thing.  6. Thinking everything puratan is good. And should be emulated. Research should be done about the authenticity of things like sooraj parkash. More research into Dasam granth. Resolve the controversies with resesrch. Not just thats how it was always done. But without creating more controversies. 7. Hating people who are not to your standard. Like kar sewa babe. They dont have knowledge about how to preserve antique things. Instead of hating. Do a course on preservation and join them. They have made old small buiding accessible for massive sikh sangats. And the sarai are very comfortable and useful for qurantine like now. They did their best. Politicians will always be corrupt instead of voting in ur guy/team, learn to use them to do the important work.  Yeah dhumma is terrible. But he is keeping taksal going. So that it still exists for when another revolution is needed. So when another Sant comes. Real world is ugly, willnever be perfect. Learn how to flow with it.

    • people living with dinosaurs does not go against the teaching of the previous yugs.  according to the yugs us humans have been around for millions of yrs   so lived along dinosaurs       so it makes sense why these paintings are in caves, these cave people must of heard stories about dinosaurs from their elders and so on 
    • I think it's a little more complex than liberal Sikhs letting the side down, but I do sympathise with the general gist of the argument. Don't forget, all it takes is darshan of someone or another to turn someone like that into a believer, so it's not as if they're total losses. Some of it's down to karams, too. Like I said, this entire issue is attributable to physical and social phenomena as well as spiritual matters. Our duty is to get a grasp of matters in our direct control.
