I noticed they don't seem to give explicit orders regarding conduct. They are more like orders for requisitions. Trying to read them made me realise how poor my Panjabi really is......

Is there no surviving Hukum requesting Sikh presence at Anandpur in 1699 with kesh and weapons?

I don't believe a specific 'Vaisakhi' hukumnama is available - but from those available it is clear that the Sangat was requested to come bearing arms ;

Line 7 of hukumnama 25 states : 'Hathiaar bann ke darshan aa vanna' - Seek 'darshan' bearing arms

In the famous Patiala hukumnama (hukumnama 12) line 3 states ; 'Tudh jamiat le ke asade hajoor aavana' - 'Come into my presence with all your 'men' (personal army)'

Line 9 states ; 'Tussan assvaar le ke aavana jaroor' - a request to come with horsemen (mounted cavalry).

The Patiala Hukumnama is dated CE 1696 and the request for cavalry was to help in the battle with the Hill Rajas. It is said that because of this help Guru Sahib bestowed his special blessing on the House of Patiala. It is said that it is because of this special blessing that much later during the Missal Period, the 11 missals did not attack the Phulkian states.

Here are some more images - in colour ;

The Hukumnama sent by Guru Tegh Bahadar Sahib - a 'Hukum Khas Furman' - to the sangat of Patna at the time of the Prakash , birth of Guru Gobind Singh - expressing their Joy and hope the sangat will contine to assist and help Guru Sahib's family at this special time.

This Hukumnama is Kept at Takht Patna Sahib.

Thanks for the info Freed. You truly are a repository of wisdom dude! I noticed that in most of Dasmesh Pita's hukums Sikhs are instructed "Guru Guru Japna", is this the precursor of using Waheguru for simran?

I also noticed that Guri Gobind Singh's nishaan has a cross and a dot, do we know anything about this? Is it a degh and tegh?

    • Is it the end of SGPC? I mean there’s one in Punjab, one in Haryana and Delhi.  Recently Hazur Sahib removed 2 members of it. It was a British creation in the 1920s.
    • In the uk we have Ramgharia gurdwaras, in some places ther are called Ramgharia sabha! However, I think most gurdwaras and even sikhs calling themselves "Ramgharia" are scamming us as they have weak or no connections to Ramgharia misl, and are just using the fact that they are tarkhans they can use the Ramgharia term because Jassa Singh Ramgharia was from tarkhan background. Please prove me wrong!   Also, I have been observing gurdwaras since I was young. I remember when I was a child in the 80s and 90s, Singh Sabha gurdwaras still allowed shoes and langar was eaten on tables, in the times when the adults used to work all the time, doing double shifts etc. However in the 2000s we can see a change in Singh Sabha gurdwaras as well as some other gurdwaras, where shoes are no longer allowed, and we have a lot of space to sit on the floor and do pangat in langar.  It's really strange to see so many tables in gurdwaras after seeing langar done exclusivily on the floor gurdwaras in Panjab and India. Just look at Harimandir Sahib, 4 takht, and many other gurdwaras back home. Now, across London, Slough and Berkshire, midlands, I have noticed Ramgharia gurdwaras allow shoes into langar and have little or no accommodation for sitting on the floor. It is bizarre to see in Ramgharia gurdwaras, the sangat coming from doing sangat or matha tek in divan hall, and then putting on their shoes to go to langar. Like we are going to a restaurant or something! What is this, is it some kind of kenya/east africa sikh colonial army era tradition to keep doing this, even after the other gurdwaras have moved back to giving satkar and respect for langar maryada? Then we come to the scam, in the Ramgharia gurdwaras, there seems to be more links to East Africa sikhs than Ramgharia misl. There are more trim Singhs with Kenya paghs on Ramgharia gurdwara committees compared to more sabat surat Singhs on Singh sabha committees, from my observations in these England regions. You will find more kenya pagh and trim or fixo darhi, than bana walay Singh in these gurdwaras, again the Ramgharia label is scamming us, as Ramgharia is used for sabat soorat Singhs from the misl, especially those tuned to bana (and open beard is part of bana). Also, I have listened to Rehraas Sahib in some Ramgharia gurdwaras, and they read the disfigured bhasauria SGPC style of Chaupai Sahib (such as the way performed at Harimandir Sahib the past 100 years), skipping arril and the last lines of kabyo baach benti, which makes them more like a Singh Sabha gurdwara and far removed from being Ramgharia due to having similar disrespect towarda bani as Singh sabha gurdwaras, as Ramgharia misl would respect dasam bani and read the full kabyo baach benti. So the langar thing is bizarre, and now I think of it it's disrespectful. And the use of Ramgharia sikhs and Ramgharia gurdwaras term is a scam as they are anything but, as there is so much disrespect to be associated with the practices of Ramgharia misl! Even the fact they celebrate Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia's birthday doesn't allow them any forgiveness or courtesy! This goes double for the Slough Ramgharia Singh Sabha, as they have a statue of Jassa Singh Ramgharia, and yet are their actions related to actual Ramgharia? Yeh, let's not fall for the scam! and sikhs that are sangat in those gurdwaras, really need to step up and get in those committees and change things for chardi kala! We need to see more chardikala Singhs running things, not trim Singhs and fixo Singhs!
    • Japji Sahib can be done anytime within 24 hours, but ideal time is before breakfast.  Ardaas after is optional but if you can make it necessary will be ideal. When it comes to paat more the merrier.  Meat / alc should be in separate rooms to Gutke Sahibs. It is possible no matter how small the house. WAIT! Isn't all food in the kitchen??  You can still do paat after meat n alc. Nothing wrong there... just wash yer hands! (Obviously).
