Sangat Update - Dudley, UK

17 February 2011


Dudley Gurdwara Committee continues to offend UK Sangat and defy the authority of Akaal Takhat Sahib

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

The Satkaar Campaign's Sevadaars met with the Committee of Guru Nanak Singh Sabha Gurdwara, Dudley on Sunday 13 February 2011. The Committee confirmed to the Sevadaars the outcome of a hastily convened general meeting called by the Committee on Saturday 12 February 2011, where the "Sangat" of Dudley allegedly approved a motion to split the Sikh Cultural Centre from the Gurdwara's charity, so that each building runs under a different charity and committee. Local members of the Sangat have advised us that this hastily convened meeting did not follow the protocol required as per the constitution of the Gurdwara. We understand a letter of complaint from a member of the Sangat has been sent to the Committee, copying the Charity Commission.

It was clear to Satkaar Sevadaars at the meeting that the Dudley Committee are intent on playing games with the sentiments of the Khalsa Panth, and are determined to continue disrespecting Gurmat principles and the 2006 Sandesh from Akal Takhat Sahib. The Committee are trying to escape their obligation to the Khalsa Panth and Akaal Takhat Sahib by making a "technical" argument that the Sikh Cultural Centre is separate from the Gurdwara. This is extremely offensive to GurSikhs all over the world.

Satkaar Sevadaars, once again, requested the Committee to: (i) realise the Beadbi that is occurring by permitting meat, tobacco, alcohol and parties on the Gurdwara's premises, and (ii) immediately pass a resolution to prevent this Beadbi happening in the future. Satkaar Sevadaars told the Committee in no uncertain terms that the UK Sangat will come to peacefully protest whenever they learn that there is a party to be held at the Sikh Cultural Centre. They should understand the depth of feeling on this issue, and realise that, with the blessings of Guru Ji, the UK Sikh Sangat will remain forever united and have now become even more determined to stop this Beadbi happening.

With the blessings of Guru Ji and the worldwide Sangat, the Satkaar Campaign will expose in the coming days the factually incorrect information deliberately being spread by certain individuals in the Dudley Committee, who are determined to continue serving meat and alcohol in a building forming part of the Gurdwara's Jagir (estate).

    • Definitely the Guru Sahibs would be a heavier Scriptures to handle. Dasam Granth is more towards Bir Rass, Guru Gobind Singh showed his Greatness (of course, they would never say this) by separating his own Baania.  And the BIGGEST test of all?? Do we try and read Dasam Granth, Understand n show respect like we do to SGGS? Or... Do we QUESTION it? Guru Gobind Singh Ji is testing us. 
    • My wife will be going for an MRI scan next week but her Kara won’t physically come off.  Is there any way the mri scan can be done with the Kara still on?  The alternative is we will have to try to saw it off before the scan.  
    • 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?
