I was talking to this guy, and he asked me something about the Gurus

This is controversial and that is why I have put it in Gupt.

1st statement – the gurus did not want women in power. None of the 10 gurus were a woman, if they believed in equality then they should have a woman Guru.

2nd Statement – Guru Gobind Singh Ji wanted the power his father had. Guru Gobind Singh Ji, wanted his father out of the way so he could take over the sikh rule he wanted. He wanted to create the Army the way he wanted. With this he had all the power.

I do not agree with either of these statements and no way of proving otherwise. Except my true belief in our Gurus and what they have done, I do not have the knowledge to refute these claims.

Can some one help?

Okay we can never understand why god's will is the way it is , but women were sooo totally equal to men (other than the fact they were women and obv. physical and hormonal factors etc.)

One major factor was probably that people in India at that time were undoubtedly sexist.

Can you imagine 10 female gurus trying to preach to a whole bunch of hindu and muslim men, the muslims who believed wives should be covered up and have no right to speak in public like that and hindus who made their wives burn themselves when their husbands die.

Women were obv seen as inferior at the time so it wouldn't have worked unless they performed miracles, how can you preach to someone if they won't listen in the first place?

Our gurus have said so much about women, exalting them in SGGSJ and observing the fact that without women there would be no men so how can they not be respected.

We had equal rights to fight, to learn sikhi, men and women served and made langar including our gurus.

We fought men on horseback, and even led whole army divisions into battle, how many other women of that time did that and how much more of a show of equality can that be?

And yeh no woman offered their heads to Guru Gobind Singh Ji so the panj piyare were men!

As a woman I feel so proud to be sikh, I see muslim women who as much as they may argue about it, are not equal at all and I feel so lucky that our gurus completely turned the whole sexist system around or we'd still be so oppressed.

    • Everything in Gurbani points us towards the Atma. Atma and Parmatma are the same… Atama and Parmatma is the source that creates and causes everything… What have the following items got in common? A fan. A television. A fridge. A radio. A computer..? These things are powered by electricity. Without electricity these things are lifeless. It’s the electricity that causes these things to function… Atma is the source of energy that allows everything to happen.    without Atma, we are lifeless… Call this Atama RAGUNATH…call this Atma by any other name…the fact remains that it’s the life force energy… Dieties also have the same Atma as humans, but they still part of the creation, and not the creator…  
    • Hi I want to know who’s ragunath in gurbani Hindu claim this word appear for ram chandra if we read guru teg bahadur maharaj salok maharaj clearly rejecting ram gayo ravan geo but at the last pangti Kahu naanak īh bipaṭi mai tek ēyk ragɦunaaṭɦ ॥55॥ Says Nanak, in this calamity, the Lord alone is my support who is this ragunaath why would maharaj use ragunath as refrence for god?
    • Throughout history we have been tested and tried. We remained steadfast and resiliant. The events that took place in Punjab and outside of Punjab in the past years made it quite clear we are big players in the game which kept the world powers on edge. It started off with the drug pandemic in Punjab, to the uproar by Bhai Amritpal Singh to the Farmer's protest. Outside of Punjab the deaths of Avtar Singh Khanda (UK) and Hardeep Singh Nijjar (Canada) created a stir within our community. This was probably our first real opportunity to establish something but how quickly members of our own community forget history. We have been a threat to civilization in the past and this is probably what the world powers are concerned about. However, may we continue grow and learn through Gurbani and like Jaswant Singh Khalra said: 'May the spirit of equal rights Punjab continue to kindle'. 
    • This is why people used to get married earlier in puratan times. Think about it, nowadays you legit have to be brahmacharya at ages when you're supposed to be married and producing children, which historically speaking, is unprecedented outside of the Sants in Indic tradition.
