Damdami Taksal Defends Changes In Nanakshah Calendar, Says Important For Panthic Unity

Recommended Posts

Amritsar: Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandhak Committees decision to amend the sikh calendar Nanakshahi is based on a visionary approach which would pave the way for the panthic unity and prove to be a milestone in this direction. This was stated by Sant Baba Harnam Singh Khalsa Chief of Damdami Taksal and President of the Sant Samaj.

In a statement released here from the head office on Tuesday, Baba Harnam Singh Khalsa said that Nanakshahi calendar is a calendar of the whole sikh panth which was not accepted by takht Sri Patna Sahib and Takht Sri Hazoor Sahib Nanded when it was implemented almost some years ago and Sant Samaj too had some reservations about it. Amendments now made by the SGPC, which the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib has accepted and directed to implement from Chait month, are a serious attempt aimed to remove the objections of both the takht sahibs and of Sant Samaj. Now, after the assent of Jathedar Sahiban of five takht sahibs and approval of the amendments by the Gurmat Sidhant Pracharak Sant Samaj, it is high time for all of us to work unitedly for the betterment of sikh panth.

Baba Harnam Singh Khalsa, said that in the last two decades, Sikhs have suffered a lot and have witnessed unforgettable events. He said that the time has come for all the panthic leaders to work for giving a crushing defeat to those elements in Punjab, in country and abroad, who were working to harm the community on the directions of those forces which attacked Sri Akal Takht Sahib, Sri Darbar Sahib, were actively involved in sikh carnage and are now active to harm the interests of the sikh community to fulfill their nefarious designs.

He said that Nanakshahi calendar is a calendar of Sikh community and no interference of the external forces would be tolerated in this matter. He said that there is no doubt that new amendments made would remove all misunderstandings of the past in the sikh panth. It is high time for all of us to jointly celebrate all out historic days according to the Nanakshahi calendar, he added.

He appealed to the community members to come forward and accept and implement Nanakshahi calendar from Chaiter month according to the directives of the Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Sahib.

    • Is that this Baba Nand Singh ji? 
    • Just thought I would translate some of the highlighted parts from these snapshots.   -Sikhi is diminishing and very few practicing sikhs will remain in the future -There will come a time when over four new ideologies will emerge on a daily basis. Sikhs will jump from one ideology to the next. Be it Bhasauria, Radha-Soami, Kuka, Communist (as examples). -People will be easily lured away from their religion -Master Tara Singh is misleading the Sikhs, just like Gandhi. Also, we don’t call him Mahatama as he has no such quality. The people that are blindly following Gandhi and hoping for indepednece will lament one day and feel the British Raj was comparatively better. -These Topi waley will not let you [sikhs] cause any commotion (meaning they will suppress you) -Naam is becoming rare. Hold on to it for your survival. It will flourish one day in the future -Don’t align with any political party -With time, a great man will come who will, with his shakti (power) make these [Indian rulers] bow down. After this a long-lasting rule will start [of the Sikhs]. Gurmukhi letters will be supreme. The counting of 13 will commence [ I believe this refers to a benevolent social structure]. The Parkarma at Harmandir Sahib will be expanded 2 or 3 times its; current width [ hinting at a surge in new Sikhs]. Even the lighting lamp posts will be adorned in gold.
