You don't need to create a definition of "Gurmantr" , SGGS already has.

Dear all and Mohkam Singh Jee,

Please provide the reference from Sri Guru Granth Saahib Jee of a definition of "Gurmantr."

I will be grateful.

Pray Truth for all and say Satsriakaal,

Dear all and Mohkam Singh Jee,

Thanks for the three definitions of "Gurmantr."

Are Sikhs allowed to replace the Hari Mantra, Kiratham Naam and the Sat Naam with 'Waheguru' following the preachers?

I couldn't find a true Guru's Vaak allowing Sikhs to replace any of their words.

"Satnaam" means the true name , on that basis what can be more true than "Waheguru"?

Dear all and Mokham Singh Jee,

God is true and all is Godly.

Calling God Waheguru and preaching others that the true Gurus have suggested so, is a fraud (dhokham) on earth in my view. This is also God's Hukam.

Thank you for your "point of view" Khalsa Ji , but I prefer Bhai Gurdas Ji's views since they are more rass dayik.

No Satnam means: Truth IS His Name

It is written in the very first line of gurbani for a reason. But this is all His Hukam- ignornace is the opposite of truth, hence we discover what is needed to eradicate the false. What and who else could eradicate the falsness(illusion) of maya? Only the One Named Truth.

Sath Naam Thaeraa Paraa Poorabalaa ||

सति नामु तेरा परा पूरबला ॥

Sat Naam' is Your perfect, primal Name.

kalijug baabae thaariaa sathinaam parr ma(n)thr sunaaeiaa||

Baba Nanak rescued this dark age (Kalyug) and recited 'Satnam' mantra for one and all.

Bhai Gurdaas Ji

Vaars Bhai Gurdaas

Note this verse does not say that Baba Nanak recited the 'true mantra' he actually recited 'Satnam'.

ਮਹਾਂਮੰਤ੍ਰ ਤਾਰਕ ਸਤਿਨਾਮਾ, ਸੋ ਗੁਰੁ ਕੀਨੋ ਦਾਨੇ ॥੩॥

The Guru gave the Great Mantra (MahaMantra), the one which shall take you across (the ocean that is this world), Satinaam (the True Naam)

'Waheguru' praises the lord, calling Him Great.

Satnaam(Truth is His name) is the very embodiment of that great lord for it is Truth and Only Truth (Bani/Truth is Guru and Guru is Bani) that can eradicate ignorance(maya illusion). He sat for ages discovering himself, and when he did he realised himself as Pure Truth (puran Sat).

Ever heard of the stories of brahmgyanis who have heard chanting of 'Sat' in sachkandh? This is no cooincidence.

Dear all and Mokham Singh Jee,

Some people feel Bhai Gurdaas Ji's views are more rass dayik.

Perhaps they need to know true Raam Ras and Hari Ras.

The true Gurus taste it and transfer the Ras of Raam and Hari to others also.

Please listen. Gurdev is singing.

ਰਾਮ ਰਸੁ ਪੀਆ ਰੇ ॥

राम रसु पीआ रे ॥

Raam rasu peeaa re.

ਜਿਹ ਰਸ ਬਿਸਰਿ ਗਏ ਰਸ ਅਉਰ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

जिह रस बिसरि गए रस अउर ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥

Jih ras bisar gae ras aor.1. rahaao SGGS 337-16

*****

ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟਿ ਮਹਾ ਸੁਖੁ ਹੋਇ ॥

प्रभ की द्रिसटि महा सुखु होइ ॥

Prabh kee drisTi maha sukhu hoi.

ਹਰਿ ਰਸੁ ਪਾਵੈ ਬਿਰਲਾ ਕੋਇ ॥

हरि रसु पावै बिरला कोइ ॥

Hari rasu paavai birlaa koi. SGGS 289-13

-----

Strange, the true Gurus never speak about Waheguru Ras and Waheguru Simran.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
