Gurbani Sangeet Pracheen Reet Ratnavali By Bhai Avtar Singh-Gurbachan Singh

Recommended Posts

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa! Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

Does anybody know where I can find the first part to this book? Either free or for purchase; digital, paperback, or hardcover--anything will work!

I know the second part is available from JSKS, but the first part has been out of publication for quite some time. I've been desperately seeking out this book for years now with no luck, including in shops in India :-/ Much thanks if you do find a copy!

It's not in print anymore, so pretty much impossible. I have a pdf of the Sri Raag section which i can email to you if you want, i think only a very few people have hard copies, Bhai Baldeep Singh is the only one i know of. Probably someone decent contacts will enable you to get one but finding them is difficult.

I have both volumes.

Will make them available via a new websitein a few months after they have been scanned, along with a few other rare Gurmat Sangeet granths. It's about time certain people stopped having a monopoly on Sikh resources which should be the inheritance of the whole panth (as was originally intended).

Ustaad Sital Singh Sitara has also recently released a book on all the raags of sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

At the same time, we should generously create demand for more quality work by 'purchasnig' good books, good kirtan, good kathhaa etc, in order to ensure the sevadars are able to have a decent living and provide for their kids (duty of grisht). If sevadars are able to commit full time to seva, then the quality of seva will be so much higher.

Only out of print or books where the author has expired should be scanned/digitised/OCRd, and where the author is alive, then done with their permission. There is no point being 'Khalsa' if the most basic of ethics elude us.

Don't despair, inspire to share.

    • The African American or even Afro-Caribbean have almost been bred to be physically stronger due several hundred years of slavery.  If you think about it, only the strongest and most resilient survived those slave ships across the Atlantic.  The hard physical work on those plantations have meant that they have passed down those genes through the generations.  The African origin black people in the Americans are also no longer pure black African.  There is plenty of European slave master blood in them after the slave women were taken and raped by their slave masters. This is the reason why they come in all shades of colour. You can tell the difference between black people of Africa and those from the Caribbean particularly in the UK. The diet that developed amongst the black communities of the Americas is based on the quality of food from the slave days. It was also foods not desired by the whites or food that was cheap like Chicken.  Ironically, like us folk from South Asia, the Afro Caribbeans and African Americans also suffer from high rates of diabetes and high blood pressure.
    • The overlooked or sometimes conveniently ignored aspect of their physiology is their diet, i.e. chicken and meat in general. I'm not being funny or stereotyping, but black people LOVE their chicken. Obviously, inhaling chicken all day and sitting on your behind playing video games is going to cause obesity in everyone, black or not, but certain foods coupled with an active lifestyle and perhaps a genetic predisposition to building and retaining muscle better than other races, also plays a factor. Testosterone (in natural) animal products is key. As a lifelong vegetarian I'm content and secure enough in my beliefs to acknowledge this truth. 
    • Bumping this up. Am thinking myself of moving from the UK to somewhere in North America as there is more land/open spaces, and some places a lot better weather (I dislike winters in UK).  And, weather can have a big impact on mood unless you are a complete Chardhi kala person. 
    • The youngsters themselves find themselves between a rock and a hard place. When they're growing up and perhaps vaguely aware of their fruity inclinations, it's a case of, "Why are you not in saroop?" from the religiously minded in their community. They then adopt the appearance partially through pressure and perhaps in the hope it somehow eliminates their leanings through some form of divine benevolence. When that doesn't happen and those proclivities increase with age, they find themselves exposed to incessant propaganda originating from their western host communities or the global propaganda machine which encourages them to embrace and accept their feelings, and at the same time people like us lambast them with stuff such as, "Why are you in saroop?!?" It's a no-win situation for them. Of course, I'm not seeking to excuse the degeneracy and the subversion taking place, but I just wish some of these people stepped outside of their own shoes for once, and realised how they're being used as pawns to further agendas that ultimately don't care for the individual. Humans have a desire to belong, and if they've spent most of their lives feeling alienated and misunderstood, they're obviously going to leap at the first group who extends a hand of understanding and tolerance. Most people are incapable or just aren't ready to accept or process anything beyond the material. That's life.
    • How much of that is down to parents though? People who push the external roop on their children, even when they must suspect something is not quite right? Then, when you have kids who've been raised like this their whole lives, people chide them for continuing to wear Sikhi saroop once they come out of the closet. We need clearer rules.
