Coconut Jhatka

Recommended Posts

Sorry brother, I am not too knowledgeable as to why this form of jhatka is performed. Perhaps it is done as opposed to doing jhatka of goats?

Just wanted to post a photo I found of naryal jhatka:


If the person to whom this photo belongs reads this post or frequents this forum, please accept my humble apologies for placing a link to this photo - I hope you do not mind, just came accross it and thought that it was relevent to the discussion.

at some places goats are not available or there is some rukavat like lack in finance etc there are many gareeb sikhs as well who keep the akhand path of sri dasams bani and jhatka is always done at the bhog of dasam di bani da akhand path ... its a subsitute mostly followed outside india or by greeb nihang singhs in punjab its not at all opposite to bakra jhatka... and some one called it hindu ritual ... which hindu puran talks about it or which hindu community does coconut jhatka ??? come up with any source ... people should think for 5 minutes before typing or they should always have some source to backup ... even hindu rajputs dont do coconut jhatka ... yet its a hindu ritual strange ...

It is Bipran Ki Reet Sikhism does not believe in sacrifices and offerings to God or any such things like that .Sri Akal Thakt Sahib our supreme authority bans

Via Sikh Rehat Maryada:

''Placing a pitcher, ceremonial clarified-butted-fed lamp, coconut, etc. around , during the course of the uninterrupted or any other reading of Guru Granth Sahib, or reading of other Scriptural texts side by side with or in the course of such reading is contrary to the gurmat (Guru’s way). ''

So if a coconut cannot be placed how can it be 'chatka'd' ,whats with this useless ritual did Guru Nanak Dev Ji reject such rituals of offerings and call them useless,does this not come under Koor Kireyah.

If those amongst you still want to Ignore what Akal Thakt Sahib says - do so up to ,you can stick to your

'nihang maryadas',but please don't do the pakhand of chatka-ing coconuts do what these 'nihangs' really do which is behead innocent goats then drink their blood amongst other foolish and anti gurmat rituals .

Choose 'Nangism' yes I call it nangism as it is totally the opposite to Sikhism with all these weird offerings to the 'gods' devis and what not,plus they ignore Akal Thakt.

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
