chitrapakian in the wrong way instead of its understanding of women trickery could be how people attained unity with God and were deceptive just like the rest of the narration of dasam granth such as in akal ustat how great people became avtars, prophets saints they became mukht but lost the mukhti maybe chitrapakhian is being misunderstood. At the moment Sikh scholars are not up to scratch where they should be in terms of linguistics.

Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh.

Khalsa ji, Pyar sahet benti parwaan karo ji......

Any topic of Sri Dasam Granth ji should not be discussed on the internet or any discourse of any bani.

Sorry to say this but we are more stupid than people make us out to be, why?

A simple reason we can't keep our tresures safe, all we do is see a little light and we think we've reached the Sun.

All the Bani that our GREAT GURU SAHIBS have given us is something we can't even think how big of a deal it really is, yet we use the bani on the internet we start debating without any understanding what so ever.

If any person whats to know about sikhi/gurbani then go through the proper means. (oh and there is no excuse because every Gurdwara in the world runs classes to teach gurmukhi and give santhiya so there is no excuse)

We can make for other hobbies or sports, but when it come to our true heritage we rather sit on a PC and read topics written by nastaks and nidhaks, without any research, and these type can't even read or write Gurmukhi? how strange is that?

How can you start questioning sikhi in any way, it's commen sense, if you don't know the english alphabet, then how can you ask or therefore answer a quetion that is at a pHD level, does'nt make sense does it!

Yet on youtube I see foolish people like so called moulvi mullha jatha (tiger group) talking rubbish, my advise to you lot is stay in the Glassy Junction we don't need <banned word filter activated> like you in the panth.

I also see alot of my Brothers wearing the bana and shastars.....my question is when you have this mullah jatha doing beadbi of the bani doesn't your blood boil, that is the time to take these fool out....Khalsa ji wake up.

All the Dal's in the UK it's time to rise and shut these people up once and for all, I'm seeing moneh who have nothing to do with sikhi sorry but you don't running there mouths off, people coming on punjab radio and doing nidehya of Sant Maharpush and of Bani.

This need to stop UK is a small county and this needs to be controled.

Khalistan will only happen when we are true like the pratan sikhs and true defenders of the bani.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Guru Roop Sangat Jeo,

2. Like its content, the literary form of Triya-Charitars is also borrowed from traditional sources.

It is because of lack of understanding of the above mentioned points that people wrongly believe Guru Ji’s compositions can only be Gurbani or Gurvaak and not plain work of secular fiction.

Bhai Sahib, the above point is very interesting. Is there any chance to expand on this. The reason I ask is because, I believe, that if all Sikhs were clear on how to view Sri Dasam Granth when compared to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, then any Nindaks of Sri Dassam Granth would be unsuccessful. Like Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindrawale said, " not everyone has the intellect and ability to understand Sri Dassam Granth di bani. However, I think it would help everybody to know how to view the bani of Sri Dassam Granth before we started reading it. When we read the Dassam Granth di Bani in nitnem it's so amazing and inspiring and leaves no doubt in the mind of the reciter that it is the composition of a true Satguru to bring people closer to Vaheguru! However, if there are some parts of Sri Dassam Granth that are plain works of secular fiction that it would be useful for moorakhs like me to understand that and know which parts these are!

Apologies if I have taken this thread back to basics (it may be worth starting another thread) but I genuinely believe that basics need to be covered with Sri Dassam Granth to prevent the Sangat from being mislead.

I was reading the English translations (as well as the Gurmukhi original verses) of Sri Charitropakhyan and it completely blew my mind --- in a good way!

I find the following quote from the original article absolutely key:

Because of lack of understanding of our folk-literature and Granths, many scholars and laymen have fallen prey to the dangerous misunderstanding that the story of Roop Kaur as described in Triya-Charitar is a part of Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s own history.

How embarrassing is the above for Sikhs? Are we so uncultured and ignorant that we cannot discern the difference between literature and biography? Can nobody within the Sikh faith express themselves by writing literature and trying to create allegories and parables without being accused of being the subject of said stories? :blink2:

So is it because of the above misunderstanding that people are opposed to SDG? Is that why there's so much trouble regarding this issue?

Although am I right in saying that some Sikhs attempt to sing these compositions as Gurbani in Gurudwaras? Is that why everyone kicks-off? Hmmm....I can appeciate both sides of the argument in that case, i.e. one faction says "Because Guru Ji wrote the work, we should not be ashamed of repeating it in a Gurughar" whilst the other faction says "It has content that isn't conducive to a family setting such as a Gurughar, and therefore should not be sung on a stage?"

THAT is a very complicated issue. I would not like to argue the toss in either case.

above is an awesoem translation and article, please more! the dasam granth dokhis and prudish protestant christian missionary sikhs

have always been beat down by our praatan historians, kathavachaks the problem is their literature is all in punjabi, and we really need more translations from respected Gursikhs. not fake professors

as for reading out aloud,

just as a weapon is not put into the hands of a young child until it can hold it properly and understand safety and use

and Just as sex education isn't taught until an age where the young person is old enough to understand what is being refered to

so charitropakhyaan is a gyaan of the hidden deeper base instincts of humans which frees the mind from innocence of youth and ignorance, and can save many young people from the traps of sexuality.

everyone can try to deny it, but this hidden instinct lies in all -

kwim kroiD ngru bhu BirAw imil swDU KMfl KMfw hy ]

kaam karodhh nagar bahu bhariaa mil saadhhoo kha(n)ddal kha(n)ddaa hae ||

The body-village is filled to overflowing with anger and sexual desire; these were broken into bits when I met with the Holy Saint.

Guru Raam Daas Ji, Sohila, 13

kaam krodhh aha(n)kaar maathae viaapiaa sa(n)saar ||

The world is drunk, engrossed in sexual desire, anger and egotism.

Guru Arjan Dev Ji, Siree Raag, 51

kal kalavaalee maaeiaa madh meet(h)aa man mathavaalaa peevath rehai ||

The Dark Age of Kali Yuga is the bottle of wine; Maya is the sweet wine, and the intoxicated mind continues to drink it in.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Raag Aasaa, 350

ei(n)dhree viaap rehee adhhikaaee kaam krodhh nith sa(n)thaavai ||1||

The sensory organs are totally engrossed in sensuality; sexual desire and anger constantly afflict him. ||1||

Guru Amar Daas Ji, Raag Vadhans, 565

within the confines of marriage, sex is pure and pavittar, or else how would the atma gain human form, or the male and female consumate their marriage.

The Guru further emphasises the sanctity of marriage by representing the relationship between each human and vaheguru as Wife to Husband, and their consumation as the union of the soul with vaheguru

guramukh ravehi sohaaganee so prabh saej bhathaar ||3||

The Gurmukh is ravished like the pure and happy bride on the Bed of God, her Husband. ||3||

Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Siree Raag, 21

kaaman pir raakhiaa ka(n)t(h) laae sabadhae pir raavai saej suhaavaniaa ||7||

That soul-bride keeps her Husband Lord clasped tightly to her heart, and through the Word of the Shabad, she enjoys her Husband Lord upon His Beautiful Bed. ||7||

Guru Amar Daas Ji, Raag Maajh, 127

also - unchecked or uncontrolled, outside marriage, innocent or not, even a pious person can be destroyed by it, countless wars have been waged for it, kingdoms lost and won over it, and there seems no end to it.

su(n)dhar naaree anik parakaaree par grih bikaaree ||

They may have all sorts of beautiful women, but still, they commit adultery in the homes of others.

Guru Arjan Dev Ji, Raag Gauree, 213

nak ka(n)n farr vadteeai raavai par naaree||

The ears and nose are chopped of the man who ravishes an other’s wife.

Bhai Gurdaas Ji, Vaars Bhai Gurdaas, 36



Salok, First Mehla:

choraa jaaraa ra(n)ddeeaa kuttaneeaa dheebaan || vaedheenaa kee dhosathee vaedheenaa kaa khaan ||

Thieves, adulterers, prostitutes and pimps, make friendships with the unrighteous, and eat with the unrighteous.

sifathee saar n jaananee sadhaa vasai saithaan ||

They do not know the value of the Lord's Praises, and Satan is always with them.

gadhahu cha(n)dhan khouleeai bhee saahoo sio paan ||

If a donkey is anointed with sandalwood paste, he still loves to roll in the dirt.

naanak koorrai kathiai koorraa thaneeai thaan ||

O Nanak, by spinning falsehood, a fabric of falsehood is woven.

koorraa kaparr kashheeai koorraa painan maan ||1||

False is the cloth and its measurement, and false is pride in such a garment. ||1||

This Shabad is by Guru Nanak Dev Ji in Raag Soohee on Pannaa 790

    • *bump I firmly believe that one quote in regards to cannabis is not written by Guru Nanak Dev Ji (O'lord the fear of thee). B/c nasha is nasha. But cannabis is a bit a different since it was used for medicinal purposes in India also. 
    • I feel gurdwaras are maybe somewhat getting back to their functions as dharmsalas containing schools and learning centres. With panjabi schools, gurmat classes, santhiya, martial arts, keertan training, with sikhi camps occasionally in towns, there is somewhat some functions connected to traditional gurdwaras of the past.
    • I do sometimes think that the function of a gurdwara has expanded to things that were not expected before. We expect them to be political institutions, we want them to be social clubs, we want them to be creches, we want them to be daycare centres. 
    • there's too many Kenya Singhs in those kinda gurdwaras, really chummy chummy with the goras and politicians, fixo the beards to the max and younger generations just trimming it instead of getting into the fixo malarkey, lack of open beards and turbans you can take off like hats, don't make for intimidating or annakhi singhs. I heard that pakistanis try to pickup girls from the Slough Ramgharia gurdwara.  They need to join with the other 2 gurdwaras in Slough to help them out, they can't act like the elders did where they split from the Singh Sabha gurdwara because they were too aggressive, now is the time to use that aggression.  And the Guru Maneyo Granth gurdwara Bath Road gets nationwide sangat on Sundays, so just use those numbers in Slough! in these gurdwaras, gyanis and sewadaars are known by the regular sangat, and regular sangat is close knit. Activities and panjabi schools are also good as most of the same children come.  In both areas, I don't like the lack of cooperation between Ramgharia and Singh Sabha gurdwaras. Overall it's a benefit to have gurdwaras in at least 2 different locations in big towns and cities. But it's bad if they don't cooperate, especially in major issues that Khalsa is known for. Ramgharia gurdwaras like to rep up Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia, with the Slough gurdwara even having a statue. But the lack of keeping Khalsa rehit, looking too scared and cowardly to keep full beards or open beards, not acknowledging the Khalsa Nihang Singh mentality of Jassa Singh and being stuck in the kenya Singh mentality, not even willing to read Chaupai Sahib properly during Rehras, and many of these Ramgharia gurdwaras are not even willing to keep basic rehit of allowing sitting on the floor for langar and allowing shoes inside as well, all these behaviours aren't working for chardi kala of the panth! It's like they are trying to keep their own type of sikhi, it's not even a tradition, just being stuck in their own box, they are not in the colonial British army, or serving in the world wars, or making train tracks or some other jobs for the gora, why do they behave this way, this archaic stuff in gurdwara? And doesn't do justice to Jassa Singh Ramgharia, who would have been a rehitee Nihang Singh, annakhi Singhs who defeated the enemies and kept in the brotherhood of the Khalsa with the other misls, even after their whole misl was excommunicated expelled from the panth, they still rejoined the Khalsa and helped defeat the enemies! I don't see them trying to integrate with the rest of the panth in the ramgharia gurdwaras, not like Jassa Singh, obviously it's the elders who instil these mentalities, with some of the youngsters trying to connect back into sikhi!
    • Try get CBT - Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of talking therapy. It is a common treatment for a range of mental health problems. CBT teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems. It focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and actions. It can help overcome anxiety. In the UK you can self-refer to a professional service offering CBT therapy. I know a few people who have had this and it helped with their social anxiety.
