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.

    • Remember also  everyone is the soul bride of Waheguru Ji 
    • We are equal in the eyes of God because we are beneath him. It is looking at ants from our eyes. The problem with people is that they think that leadership is a privilege. It is not, it is a responsibility.  As the head of the family you may have the authority but that always comes with accountability. They go hand in hand. In families there is a pecking order, the children first, the women next and then the men. Men are the sacrificial gender, why in cases of emergency do they say "women and children first". A woman will sacrifice her life for her children but never for her husband. A man will sacrifice for both. Women who take leadership from her husband do it because they are forced into it or because the man is not up to it and the woman becomes resentful of her husband. 
    • I don’t see how you see this practice as a part of our ancestral history.  What I chose to do independently outside of Sikhi cannot be associated with Sikhi practices. Similar as to how dietary influence is largely down to the landscape and culture of the region you belong to.  The same is for narcotics which are largely taken due to cultural influence and availability to the region.  Just because I eat potato chips in England this does not mean my future generations should adopt this, and somehow associate this with my religious identity.  Your cultural practices can be altered, discarded and chosen but your religious practices can never change,  whether that be in the 18th Century or the 21st.   If you reword this with ‘medicinal, recreational drug use in the region of Punjab in the 17th-18th Century’, I would have no problem with this observation.  But as soon as someone quotes ‘Puratan Sikhs and use of Marijuana’, I am not comfortable with this!
    • Veer ji can u please post pankitis from gursobha and prem sumarag about sukha?
    • Unless you're going to fight enemies of panth and need help of sukha , I don't see any excuse why I should exempt you from similar judgement as of any regular drug addict. People have for long perverted religion for their goals . Nothing new here. Why not get high on naam instead
