The Use Of Chairs In Guru Ji's Darbar


Recommended Posts

i think sitting on the floor is correct seven kings sabha gurdwara and karamsar gurdwara (sorry for spelling mistakes) have got it right i usually go to the neville road one in east london its nice all done up BUT use chairs and thats wrong to me personally.

but u know what sikhs who aint into sikhi that much wont care becuase to them its just a chair u know and when u try and explain it to them why i sit on the floor and not above Guru Maharaj all they give u is funny looks.......

BTW im NOT referring to the bibia in the pictures im talking bout those people who could sit on the floor but choose not to (the healthy non disabled/old people)

Some of you are sick fanatical individuals. One women clearly has a zimmer frame in the picture for God's sake. That is the silver walking frame incase you never noticed it. That means she find it difficult to walk without support!

You need to get a life.

over reaction? rolleyes.gif lol

We have a woman who comes ina wheelchair into darbar hall..

while another wheelchaired man prefers struggling up the stairs (can extend his knees so he makes lil steps up stairs) - That's sharda init.. :lol:

Guru Ji's darbar is open to all - disabled or not. If people start bringing up chairs just for the sake of it - "cant sit on the floor coz i cant be bothered" kind of attitude - then call me fanatic or whatever u like but the answer from me is no :)

oh please - you mean that little old bibi sitting in the chair? next to the zimmerframe?

are you her physician? did you bother talking to her about it? is the rest of Sangat blissfully unaware of her physical abilities? or did you see her sitting in the presence of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj and felt SO outraged that like a true saint soldier you stood there and took her picture and posted it on the forum?

who knows maybe the bibia at your GuruGhar have more himmat than the naujawans. maybe this precious moment of your time could have been better spent focusing your energy in the direction of Guru Ji instead of at this old lady. i dunno.

yes at the age of 60 Guru Amar Das Ji showed respect by walking backwards whilst fetching water for Guru Angad Dev Ji to never turn his back, yes we should show maximum respect as possible for Guru Maharaj but the duty is left on each of our own heads anyway!

why cant we just focus on ourselves? a member of my family is a bazurug in a wheelchair and is prevented from seeing Guru Maharaj because the truth is these days we got no love.

Khalsa ji's,

My motives for posting these pictures are being questioned. Over the next few years we are going to have more and more people asking for chairs to be placed in the Divan halls, just like what happened in the langar halls. Maybe some time in the future we will all be sitting on chairs.

Now when non Sikhs are coming to Gurudwara for wedding etc, they are too requesting chairs.

This will be an issue for us to deal with in the next few years, hence for need for this discussion, at this Guruhar there were empty chairs in the Divan hall, up stairs, and there are numerous empty chairs left behind after wedding in the Divan halls.

This is not a debate of disable access to Gurudwara, which I fully agree needs to be addressed.

the bibiji looks like she cant really walk properly.... so i understand no one shud be higher than maharaj.. but it comes to the point.. where ppl say wheel chairs shud be allowed... all im sayin is... ppl have difficulties and problems... we shud'nt let that stop them from coming into sangat etc

pull chuk marf....

    • Look, the same points you made about Gujarati Kenyans, I can say the same thing about Sikh/Punjabi Kenyans. They were more educated on average than immigrants direct from India.  I worked with a Gujarati from India and he told me that Gujaratis are not known for being educated.  Compare Gujaratis from Kenya to Punjabis from Kenya and also Gujaratis from India to Punjabis from India. 
    • Stop marrying these Punjabans and shipping them over to the West. There's no excuse for it in this day and age. You're not getting an obedient, dutiful, demure female from over there. They don't respect Western born guys unless they're complete gundeh, in which case they bring a who!e new set of problems to the table. The common religion between the two parties is a misleading trait. It's irrelevant. Cultural values and upbringing is where it's at. Baba and dera culture has spiralled out of control in Punjab. It's a miracle to find a family that isn't into this stuff. Your brother needs to make her see sense. He needs to lead and be worth following. He needs to stop hiding behind mummy and daddy, and grow a pair so that the wife's previous beliefs, whatever they are, she willingly discards in favour of her husband's values. A woman automatically does this when she perceives her man is worth deferring to. If she's playing up, she's detected a weakness, and she's exploiting it. So the problem of her running around after pandits is irrelevant. The issue is that your brother has been unable to put an end to this bukwaas for the sake of stabilising his married life and home. That's his fault.

He further added, "Yes, I danced in Times Square. Yes, In the middle of a road. Yes, We halted traffic. Yes, We waited an hour for the perfect shot. Yes, This was an on-the-spot choreo. Yes, It had to be Punjabi MC. Yes, I am so happy."    Since being shared, the video has garnered more than 2 lakh views and over 20,000 likes.    People were left impressed by the man's terrific performance. "Nicely done!! Loved watching it," a user commented. "And casually walked off! Smashed it bro!!!" another user said. "I really love how you spread your culture to the World, no matter who is looking at you, you just dance with love and passion," a third user added.

      And that was in India in a BJP ruled state. Interesting all 5 of the high caste Muslim rapist-killers had the first name of Mohammed.  So why is anyone surprised when Muslim men exploit non-Muslim women in the UK and  all over the world?
