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.

    • I watch nearly all Punjabi movie releases.  Recently I watched ‘Chall Mera Putt’.  It’s a good comedy about the struggles of ‘Fauji’s’ in England.  It also has a message of better community cohesion with PakistanI Punjabi’s, who are also acting alongside our people.  Seems like since the opening of ‘Kartarpur Langa’, a major effort is being made on both sides of Punjab to embrace each other’s similarities. Punjabi film industry seems to be growing, but there seems to be too many releases flooding the market, with the same copy and paste storylines and repetitive use of the same actors.  Also I don’t know why but all the main lead actors are music artists and rarely does any new grassroot talent get a chance to showcase their talent.  You do get the odd gem like Ardaas and the Black Prince which breaks through but you have too sift through the pile of crap to find them. Gippy Grewal is showing he has a really good skill set as a Director, but he needs to take his time in selecting the right script rather than cashing out for quick releases.    
    • Another important thing re: the reception you might get from certain sections of the community/in Gurdwaras: I'm from a Panjabi background and grew up single parent in a time when it really was considered....I don't know what the word I should use here is?  In anycase, I fully understand why this (the single parent thing) is something a lot of the community were/are hawkish about. I understand why this is considered seriously undesirable. But be that as it may, (from my perspective) you don't really have much choice about these things, you just find yourself in them. Hukam. (For the record, believe it or not, this way of growing up can have some positives and benefits especially in terms of developing resilience in life and self-reliance). All this has probably made me mentally stronger and more streetwise than I would have been otherwise.  Growing up, there were times when the reception I got from some of the sangat at the Gurdwara wasn't exactly friendly. There was a time when I was younger when I might of felt alienated enough to stay away for a bit, although I was continually trying to develop my understanding through reading throughout this (youtube weren't around then). Now I don't know what experiences converts will have, I imagine they may get mixed ones. But the point I'm trying to make is that (for me) some degree of separation between people and Sikhi took place - and I believe for the better. Or else I could've let the negative experiences push me away from Sikhi (like I have seen happen to many, including in my own family), and I believe my life would have been infinitely poorer for this.  This is no excuse for appalling behaviour by apnay by the way. Which is very concerning for some of us, because of the effect it has on cohesion. We can clearly see examples of the negative effects of inexcusable exclusionary attitudes in the villages of Panjab today.  Just a heads up.   This path was sealed by divinity in the form of a saint-soldier. By it's own admission it is "finer than a hair, sharper than the edge of double-edged sword" so if you go through any tough stages - take them with your chin up. 
    • It's the more recent oppressor so the one before that gets a pass. When India gets taken over by the aliens from Alpha Centauri I am sure the Brits will be looked at more fondly. 
    • Weird how it's the "firangi" conquest that comes in for the most hostile criticism despite them doling out infrastructure and administrative benefits (albeit for vested interests) alongside the undeniable oppression, whereas the earlier Mughal one is almost romanticised by certain quarters to a certain extent. 
    • I used to lurk on some indian nationalist websites and they have some interesting insights.  The middle class liberal leaning Indian in their view is an anglofile McCaulyite. McCauley was a British educator that introduced a lot of the British education system to India in the 1800's. A lot of conditioning was done during this time.  What these nationalists say is that the people that latched onto the British education system who were anglicised were previously dhimmified in the previous mughal administration.  Dhimmi of course in Islamic circles means that you were a 2nd class citizen but they sucked up to the muslim elites.  When the power transitioned between Mughals and Brits, they just switched allegiance.  That is why perhaps the looked at the Mughals favourably.
