Gurbani Or Shaster?

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fataeh!

Basically this kid told me that Guru Gobind Singh Ji Mahraj used to do Namaskar to Shaster BEFORE Gurbani and said that Shaster is more important. Anyone know if this is true because perosnally I believe that Guru Ji would have given same level of importance to both Gurbani & Shaster!!

Gurbani should have more respect than shastars.

Shastars are to be respectfully adorned and taken care of. But in a scenario where you were forced to choose to drop either shastar or Gurbani, it would be the shastar.

Shastar and Gurbani - equal respect. Just as the concept of Sant Sipahi (Saint Soldier) is meant to be pracisted equally by Khalsa so is this concept of equal respect to Shastar and Gurbani.

Sri GuruBani Ji first.(b'coz Shabad Guru is Nirankar Niranjan Narayan(parmeshar jyot) itself)

Then Shasters.

guru gobind singh ji used to put shastars on a palang higher then themselves and do chaur sahib over them

Never heard of this. Any sources to back this up?

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

Gurbani first. the Miri Piri swords of Guru Hargobind Sahib are still preserved and when measured, the Miri is 2 inches shorter than the Piri. This is significant as it shows that while worldly strength (Miri) is very important, spiritual strength (Piri) is more important, even if by a little.

Both are equally important as each other, the Saint-Soldier - Khalsa Panth is a unision of spirituality and the way of the warrior. I personally think a lot of modern day Sikhs amritdharres included have no concept of the warrior way and are too focussed on spirituality.

- How many amritdharees do you know with any sort of real martial knowledge, self defence, weaponry etc...they carry a blunt kirpan purely for symbolic value...without the knowledge or skill to use it..A Kirpan is a shaster not a symbol. Most moderm amritdharees do not even have good physical fitness levels..

- Guru Gobind Singh states that one of Sikhs would fight sava lakh enemies 125,000 , and protect the weak and opressed. Fact is modern day Sikhs cant even defend themselves yet alone anyone else.

- Singhs and Singhnees need to remember not to neglect the warrior way, and incorporate physical fitness, martial training and study of Guru Gobind Singh Banee incorporated in Dasam Granth to bring about the Bir rass which appears to be lacking. I think unless there is balance between spirituality and the warrior way you cannot be a complete Khalsa. One without the other is useless.

    • They're a virus that has been allowed to spread due to Sikh ignorance of their own religion and beliefs. If only people knew the contempt with which Dhadhri and his ancillaries are held by genuinely spiritual and decent Sikhs, those of the sangat who've been deceived but are ultimately decent people seeking spiritual guidance, would turn from these charlatans immediately. NKJ are digging themselves into a very deep hole from which they will not escape.

      @puzzled you also watch embracing sikhism like mee. thats great cos she has some great resources.I was thinking that i am gonna introduce this channel and their website to the sikhsangat folks.but yeah great channel.She has helped many converts like me(i was born into a hindu family).Mr. Jack u shud watch this channel and hv a look at their website they hv great great great resources for converts and even ppl who r already sikh .
    • I got more into Sikh dharam when i was encouraged to search for much deeper sikh dharam. It was under the guidance of pure gurmukh couple; former Hindu guy turned into khalsa and his wife, a former christian white turned into 24 hrs bana wearing sikh. Punjabi family born got into deep sikhi by non-sikh born couple. That proves that it is a very universal faith and speaks to everyone regardless of race, color/age/sex etc.  One advice, i can give you and i hope you can understand it at early stages: You will see whole lot of majority of "sikhs" who will not be following the core principles of what our gurus taught inside Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, so do not get discouraged by seeing that thing as they are not blessed. On one hand you will see the beauty and strong message of life and its purpose from Sri Guru Granth Sahib and on the other side you will see majority followers not actually getting that message quite frankly. So, do not get confused. It is due to lack of preaching of the actual message of Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee to masses. Socially, you will be greatly accepted and all Sikhs will feel proud of having you as sikh. Do not worry the actual first long stares by few old folks as that is part of indian culture lol.  Which state you are from?
