Have you heard of the sakhi when guru nanak dev ji went to mecca and the mullah asked him to not point his feet at the khaba.

God is every where.

Guru is shabad the guru granth sahib is a vehicle to deliver it.

Do you think you are doing beadbi of guru granth sahib when sitting at home as Im sure your back will be to a guru granth sahib somewhere in the world.

It is not something to jump up and down about BUT we should not sit with our backs to Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. I think most sikhs are aware of this but sometimes mistakes happen.

It is important to have love and respect for your Guru. We should have some peh.

Please refrain from sitting with your back to Maharaj when in their Darbar.

Just an example of Great Gursikhs that many look upto:

http://www.babanandsinghsahib.org/sggs/back.htm

There are many other Gursikhs throughout history who have told us to see Guru Granth Sahib Ji as Jaagdi Jot. Even todays Gursikhs tell us the same.

Was it not Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaj who slept on the floor whilst letting Guru Granth Sahib Ji rest on their own bed.

Sachseeker ji i would rather listen to them than todays educated sikhs who are trying to mislead people.

^^i agree with you that in a Darbar that no one should have their back to guru Granth sahib. But why are u saying that that guy is saying that that guy is spreading misinformation in Sikhi? Are u saying that Guru Nanak dev Ji was wrong? I was once in Harmindar sahib and one man was sitting on the parkima with his feet towards Harmindar sahib, and another person got really angry at him. Didn't Guru Nanak Ji fight against this very thing? What is your argument against that?

Who is saying what guy is spreading misinformation?

I don't see anything on this thread that says Guru Nanak Dev Ji was wrong.

Why didn't you ask the guy at Harmandir Sahib these questions? Why are you asking us on here? I am sure he would have answered your questions.

Like Sarabha Panjab has said deal with the thing there and then.

Brother/Sister I haven't got any argument. Please read my previous post where examples are given. I follow what people greater than me tell me. I am not here to argue.

Not everything has to fit into boxes.

Veerji/bhenji please forgive me if I misunderstood. You said that "educated Sikhs were spreading misinformation" Sachseeker said that no matter where u sit your back is towards God. I thought for some reason you were disagreeing with this, I'm very sorry that I had misread.

Also, Beginner, did I say that Mecca was greater? Guru Nanak Ji used Mecca to support his claim, not me.

Have you heard of the sakhi when guru nanak dev ji went to mecca and the mullah asked him to not point his feet at the khaba.

In your words please tell us what a khaba is and what is inside the khaba. Is the Khaba the Sirgun Saroop of Sri Vaheguru ji Maharaj and if you say it is, then how so, does Gurbani tell you the Khaba is?

God is every where.

Yes Sri Vaheguru Ji Maharaj is every in Nirgun Saroop, but not in Sirgun Saroop. Can you tell me where Sri Vaheguru Ji Maharaj was when there was no creation?

Guru is shabad the guru granth sahib is a vehicle to deliver it.

Sri Vaheguru ji Maharaj has taken up the Sirgun Saroop of Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj so you can't say Maharaj is different than Satguru.

Do you think you are doing beadbi of guru granth sahib when sitting at home as Im sure your back will be to a guru granth sahib somewhere in the world.

At home a person does not have Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj, so the back is not pointed at Maharaj presence in the Sirgun Saroop.

Please take the time out to learn from Gursikhs the difference between Sirgun and Nargun Saroop of Maharaj. Also just to give you more relevant information. Satguru Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji Maharaj gave Charn Di Pahul from his feet. Dhan Dhan Dhan Sirgun Saroop of Sri Vaheguru Ji Maharaj. :biggrin2:

Sitting with your back toward Guru Sahib is wrong and total disrespect. Not only is it disrespect, but the person that commits such acts or says the act is not wrong, does not understand Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj is not a book, but the living TrueGuru that sits on the throne and blesses the Sikh who has faith (sharda) with the eyes to see the TrueGuru sitting on his throne giving out his blessing.

Listen to Sri Sukhmani Sahib da paat to bring some humility and understanding in your lives. The King of Kings the Master of all the Father of all the Husband of all has taken up the form as Satguru Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj, bow before him and understanding is attained.

I think you should spend less time arguing and debating. It seems misunderstanding is very important here.

If you think it is ok to sit with your back to Guru Granth Sahib Ji because God is everywhere then i would love to have what you are on.

    • This. It's a lot more than this as well, military strategies, intel networks, manipulating narratives, decision making -  just for a start.   If you can perceive some of these things you're blessed more than most people who read it all the time on a surface literal level. 
    • Afghanistan’s last Sikhs in a dilemma: To stay or leave Community leaders estimate just 140 Sikhs remain in the Taliban-ruled country, mostly in the eastern city of Jalalabad and capital Kabul. An Afghan Sikh priest praying at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] Published On 20 Jan 202220 Jan 2022   The caretaker of Kabul’s last Sikh temple stands looking at the cavernous hall where throngs once gathered in worship. Only a handful are left now. “Afghanistan is our country, our homeland,” said Gurnam Singh. “But we are leaving out of sheer hopelessness.” In the 1970s, Afghanistan’s Sikh population numbered 100,000, but decades of conflict, poverty and intolerance have driven almost all of them into exile. The Soviet occupation, subsequent Taliban regime and bloody military intervention by the United States winnowed their numbers to just 240 last year, according to figures kept by the community. After the Taliban returned to power in August, opening the newest chapter in Afghanistan’s dark history, a fresh wave of Sikhs fled the country. Today, Gurnam Singh estimates just 140 remain, mostly in the eastern city of Jalalabad and in Kabul. An Afghan Sikh priest carrying the Guru Granth Sahib at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] Some of the remaining devotees trickle into the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple to pray on a recent wintry morning. Men stand to one side, women to the other – about 15 people in total. Sitting barefoot on a floor covered with thick red rugs, they warm themselves around stoves and listen to a recitation from the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh holy book. In November, the temple had three copies, but two have since been sent to New Delhi for “safekeeping”. Poverty is rife among Afghan Sikhs, and attacks by the Afghan chapter of the ISIL (ISIS) armed group are a real threat. The overwhelming majority of Sikhs fleeing Afghanistan have landed in India, where 90 percent of the religion’s 25 million global adherents live, mainly in the northwest region of Punjab. Since the Taliban takeover, India has offered exiled Sikhs priority visas and the opportunity to apply for long-term residency. There is no sign yet that citizenship is on the table. Pharmacist Manjit Singh, 40, is among those who turned down the offer, despite his daughter having emigrated there with her new husband last year. “What would I do in India?” he asked. “There is no job or house there.” Among the remaining holdouts, the prospect of leaving is particularly wrenching: it would mean abandoning their spiritual home. “When this gurdwara was built 60 years ago, the whole area was full of Sikhs,” said 60-year-old community elder Manmohan Singh. “Whatever joy or sorrow we felt, we shared it here.” A priest praying at the Karte Parwan Gurdwara temple in Kabul [Mohd Rasfan/AFP] From the outside, the temple is largely indistinguishable from other buildings on the street. But security here is markedly high, with body searches, ID checks and two fortified doors. In early October, unidentified gunmen forced their way inside and vandalised the sacred space. The incident had ugly echoes of the most scarring attack on the Afghan Sikh community. In March 2020, members of ISIL assaulted the Gurdwara Har Rai Sahib in Shor Bazar, a former enclave of Kabul’s Sikh community, killing 25. Since the attack, that temple – and the nearby Dharamshala Gurdwara, the capital’s oldest Sikh house of worship at an estimated 500 years – have been abandoned. Parmajeet Kaur was struck by shrapnel in her left eye during the attack, and her sister was among those killed. In the weeks that followed, Kaur packed her bags and headed for New Delhi, but “we had no work and it was expensive, so we came back”, she said. That was in July, a few weeks before the Taliban returned to power. Now Kaur, her husband and three children are fed and housed by Karte Parwan Gurdwara. Her children do not go to school, and Kaur never ventures beyond the walls of the temple, the only place where she feels safe. She thinks about leaving again, this time for Canada or the US. “My son and daughters are still small,” she said. “If we leave, we can make something of our lives.”
