This website has a bunch of old manuscripts that they are digitizing. You can adopt books to have them uploaded. They have more Hinduism and Sikhism stuff, but it seems to be a Sikh based website. Check it out sangat and letme know what you thin asap. They also have books that are uploaded and digitized. Who made this website?

Sikh Research Institute aka fateh world aka Sojhi aka fateh camp. These are the people who started anti-dasam granth, meat eating camps (and they teach to kids it is ok to eat meat), changing ardas, changing spellings of "gurmantar" and dozens of other strong anti-panth material in their $10,000 and $500/month sunday khala school syllabus. On many occasions they debated that it should be "Guru Manyo Panth" instead of "Guru Maneyo Granth." I may sound like doing chugley or bring the organization down but the above can be verified by anyone who dealt with these texas based organization.

The digital library work is very much needed in our kaum but it should be done by a respectable organization without having dodgy controversy hovering over their head. It won't surprise me that if they do something bad with this (like add one dodge page out of thousands of pages to prove their missionary agenda.)

SRI don't have any links to Punjab Digital Library. What happened is that SRI gave them a lot of support when they first began the project, and some parts of the media thought there was an official link between the two. Punjab Digital Library have no official links to any other body.

Harinder Singh of SikhRi is one of the Directors of Digital Library....

There is still a strong association between SikhRi and PDL...PDL was in fact a brain child of SikhRi

I wouldnt doubt the links, the material is questionable at times. Lots of Hinduism stuff.

SIKHRI is anti sikh and atheist organization.They are propagating against age old sikh traditions secretively.

It is a kala afghana/Darshan lal ragi group.

If PDL is connected with them that is a sign of danger.

I find it funny that finally a group decides to save our history, and all people can do is complain about how this group is "not as holy as them". We have so many judgmental people in our Panth, its just sad. We just think that if someone else has different views than ours, then they are atheists and sinners. Its this group mentality, or Jatha mentality, we have that basically says, "If you're not with us, you're against us". Where is the humility? where is the love? We just act like we know everything about God, and if you don't agree with us, then you are Athiests.

I don't agree with some stuff Sikhri says, but thats their own opinion, and everyone has a right to their own opinion. Why don't we all go over there, sign up, and have Darshan of some really old Gutka Sahibs instead of coming on message boards and judging people?

    • 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!
