Sarbat '09: Special Smagam

Recommended Posts

With Guru Ji’s grace, a unique event is being organized in remembrance of the devastating Delhi anti Sikh riots which occurred in the wake of a tyrant’s assassination.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the 1984 massacres. Appalling violence descended upon on our brave and precious brothers and sisters by an unjust, blind government. It is time to show that their deeds have not been forgotten. It is time to remember. It is time to reflect.

A twofold approach is being taken for the event itself; discourses for the intellect taking place during the day followed by Kirtan for the soul in the evening. This double edged sword will be utilized to carry across a vital message of the utmost prominence to all Sikhs across the globe. During the day we are arranged for notable speakers to offer discourses and in depth discussions upon the events surrounding the riots. We will also arrange for workshops to take place for various age groups.

To attract the ever diverted youth and to encourage Sangat participation, it was felt that a degree of uniqueness is required to mark the occasion and to promote Ekta, to evoke the true meaning of Sanjha. In line with this, the kirtanee requested to attend are to be paired up and asked to perform Kirtan as a real collaboration with other kirtanee which to our knowledge has not been done before in the UK.

Further details will be made available shortly. We humbly request for the entire UK Sangat to attend this special event to show that we have not forgotten.

If you would like to get involved then please contact: info@sikhroots.com

The bhog of Chaupai Sahib 2.5 million is on that day, there may be a joint program with the one above, however that is yet to be decided. Sikhroots were informed the day they put up the poster aswell and were asked about a joint program and have yet to respond, likewise the team are thinking of the idea BUT have yet to respond. Hopefully no clashes.

The UK's first Q&A session on life with Shaheeds has now been included. Anyone wishing to participate and share their experiences is very much welcome to do so.

Benti to Sangat... Let us all come together for this one day event in remembrance of what descended upon our Panth 25 years ago

There will be a prompt 15:00 start by Bhai Jagjit Singh from Leeds who will provide a 45 minute talk entitled 'Genocide in Delhi'.

He will then be followed by Jagowale's Q & A session. Bhai Sukha Singh (Nihang) will then end the talks section of the event with a discourse on Spritual Guidance.

On completion of the afternoon talks, Rehras and 45 minutes of Chaupai Sahib will be recited by GNNSJ.

    • The lady who fired the first shot into Bhai Sodhi ran to talk to Sant Ji and presented a fabricated story to the lead up to the murder of Bhai Sodhi.  The Singhs in the Jatha interrogated the women until she confessed the entire plan and was killed and her body was disposed of on the highway to send out a message.  Shinda the man who fired the remainder of the rounds into Bhai Sodhi, by now had escaped and was making his way to leave Amritsar via a vehicle.  A board was placed outside Mehta Chowk Gurdwara with message of ‘within 24 hours the murderers of Bhai Sodhi should be brought to justice’.   General Labh Singh along with fellow Jatha Singhs disguised themselves as Punjab Police Officers and set up road blocks on the main routes leading out of Amritsar.  Shindas car approached the road block and he sighed in relief on seeing Police Officers.  He asked for assistance with a safe passage to Delhi and he bragged about what he had just done to Bhai Sodhi.  He asked the Police Officers of which department they were from?  To which General Labh Singh replied ‘We belong to Secret Force which does not get paid and does not answer to any Worldly Officials’.  Shinda laughed and said ‘Stop joking around with me, there is no such Force that you have stated!’  General Labh Singh replied ‘There is such a Force and it is the Force that works for ‘Akaal Purkh!’  General Labh Singh picked up 3ft Kirpan and asked Shinda of how many bullets he had fired into Bhai Sodhi and began to cut Shinda limb by limb and threw his body parts into the road whilst he was still alive.  This all happened on busy public highway in full view of the public.  This was the fate of the cowards that murdered Bhai Surinder Singh Sodhi!

      wjkk wjkf In addition to the advice in the above posts, just make sure that you complete your Nitnem,  even if you miss Amritvela. Don't think that you have missed Amritvela, so there is no point in reciting Gurbani then. This is another trick of Maya. But make sure that the morning Nitnem Gurbanis are completed before sunset. If you miss Amritvela, then go to Gurughar and do Nitnem. When you are in the presence of Sri Satguru jee and are reciting Gurbani with love/concentration, that time is also Amritvela. Listen to katha and do sangat for motivation. There is a lot of pain and suffering in the world. Think about that when you feel low. It might motivate you to do more Naam Simran. Please listen to the following videos. They might also motivate you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-GZBE0tAJ0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAcSLU23TTU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKgz8_E4fGs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fr_HEC7fV-A   Bhul chuk maaf
    • Yeah, and not acknowledging the dirt that white people have done to nonwhites is also very dubious too. Whitewashing.  That's a very cowardly and petty way of thinking too.  Most of the global political problems of today stem from decisions made by imperialists when they marched in far off places and attacked and robbed them blindly, usually enslaving the local population as some 'inferior race' to boot.  That they had time to do some archaeology whilst they were doing this doesn't mean we ignore that legacy and its enduring impact.

    • This is a really old post    but the man and woman who killed him were they punished and killed by other singhs?    Bhai surinder singh sodhi was a sher    a real gursikh as well  he did simran and nitnem for hours
