can you do me a favour, and ask Harjinder to start doing kirtan in their proper raags and to help restore Raag vidiya to the Sikhs.

If he can tell him, Guru Ji will give his grace to him,If he cant tell him, this will be his last tour of the UK that you organise.

Thats what I was thinking! Its not as if they are the only ones who dont use the proper Raags. And i think it would be more respectful if their name was written out properly instead of just "Harjinder", seem to be lacking in the respect department.

What i saying is that more kirtanis will start using raags and spread raag vidya if gurdwaras in the western world, get strict and say "do it the Guru's way", you get me.

I mean we dont let kathavachaks come over here and give the wrong arths of Gurbani do we? So we should encourage the kirtanis to do kirtan properly.

Sorry that was an error on my part, i never noticed i hadnt added the SIngh in his name. Thanks.

Since I was kid, I used to think that Bhai Sahib were not well versed in Raags. After all, I had not heard a single shabad from them in Raag and a vadda taal (teen taal doesn't count :) ). To my surprise, many years ago, I came across a recording of them where they were singing a shabad in nirdharat raag and if my memory serves me correctly, it was being sung in chaar taal di savari. Bhai Sahib is certainly well versed in raag vidya.

I have talked to a few raagi's personally and even the ones who have professinally learnt raags say that the reason they do not do kirtan in raags is because sangat does not want to listen to raag kirtan anymore. I'm not sure how true/valid that is but this is what I have been hearing.

thank you pehlvan ji, Kirtanis can only participate in the Gurmat Sangeet Sammellan if they do the kirtan in the proper raags. That is the way we should start to do things in the UK,

i have heard this sorry story before. but the point is if you dont talk about raags and their importance in kirtan, then you already lost a battle. Also some kirtanis say it just to take the easy option as well.

Bhai Harjinder Singh ji has influenced MANY people to listen to Kirtan and become proper Sikhs. That isn't a general comment, it's something that's very personal for me. Raags or no raags, the Keertan these Keertanis sing ignite the soul and spirituality within. Show some respect rather than criticize. We should be encouraging people to recite Gurbani however they can. As long as they aren't disrespecting Bani, then I don't see nothing wrong with non-raag sung keertan. And besides, Bhai Harjinder Singh ji knows more raags than even those that are in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee. It is his choice if he wishes to sing in raags or not though. No kal da jamiyaa Chatanga or anyone else can stop them nor will we let them.

Harjinder?? is that how you address a kirtania of the Gurus Darbar? ....... Bhai Hajinder Singh Jee, He already has Guru jis grace. he lives a very Gurmukh life and are an example of a Gursikh, they are also well versed in Raag. You talk about Raag vidiya? first focus on your jeevan, then when you actually learn something talk about raag vidiya. I hope you will realise that you will never ever be able to stop Kirtania from doing Kirtan in Guru Jis Darbar. Dhan Guru Gobind Singh Ji is the one who is in control, always has been and always will be not you. The countless number of people who connect to Guruji across the world , all those who have took amrit listening to bhai harjinder singh doing Kirtan, all those who have been inspired to walk on Gurus path and here you go giving threats ?

And having said that, no one can ever eliminate Raag either. Gurbani is in Raag, it will always be part of us, and will always be practiced. Kirtania will sing what the sangat requests, so lets educate the sikhs about Raag first. Lets request the jatha to start bringing back kirtan in Raag , its a guarantee that they will not refuse this request...

    • wat about hikaytan? It clearly mentions green cup(shaheedi degh). if i am not wrong, it mentions alcohol too.
    • Sanatanis and their wrong arths if Sri Dasam Granth. These people are doing beadbi of Guru Sahib with their wrong arths. First of all, Krishnaavtaar is katha. It is not meant as a spiritual guide. In that story, Bhrigu Rishi was against alcohol because of the 'Kach' incident. But in this case, after the Yudh, the wine given to Krishan was from Brahma. This has nothing to do with it being allowed or not, but it is just a point Guru Gobind Singh Ji added to that story, as it is a Katha. Frankly, I believe we should boycott these Sanatanis just like we boycott Missionaries. They do the same wrong arths, but arrive at different conclusions.
    • I had read that gandhi had called Guru Gobind Singh ji a "misguided patriot" but i thought it was false, but professor Puran Singh mentions it in his article and he was a contemporary of gandhi, gandhi really was a egoistical little man who believed he was on a divine mission and that his way was the only way. Anyway really beautiful article.   
    • GURU GOBIND SINGH JI : BY PROF. PURAN SINGH   Author/Source: Prof. Puran Singh Ji SAHIB-E-KAMAAL This article is a poetic meditation on the ‘Rider of the Blue Steed,’ the Tenth Guru. The special feature of Puran Singh’s articulation is that it is a free intermix of the conceptual and emotional, distinguished from the cerebral hermeneutic of the West. Guru Gobind Singh emerges from the dimension in which an unusual integrity of the antahkaran (mind, soul, conscience, heart,and understanding) begins to envision everything in real and symbolic terms, simultaneously. On a cautionary note, one shall not commit a literalistic fallacy that occurs due to one’s being naïve about the symbolic and phenomenological operations of the mind. The punctuations and spellings have been amended to reflect the contemporary parlance; NO word is added or omitted. The original rendition of the article is not known; this version is adapted from a journal titled Puran Singh Studies, Vol. 1-2, Jan-Apr 1981, Panjabi University, Patiala.]   Guru Gobind Singh Ji They of India have not understood Him. Gandhi calls him a "misguided patriot." Men of this world, who wish to comprehend Truth by their own intellectual measures, are forever incapable of understanding the true nature of Inspiration, which is the life-breath of the really great. Whenever they approach such inscrutable personalities, they make but grotesque estimates. After centuries of intellectual advancement, they stand still exactly on the same spot, utterly incapable. In one age to them, Joan of Arc is but a witch and the end of the intellectual justice is to case her in fire. Today the ghost of non-violence is let loose and Guru Gobind Singh is a "misguided patriot." Christ says, "Judge not." Because we are not omniscient nor seers of all the three times – past, present, and future – it is impossible for us to judge truly even common fellowmen like ourselves, in spite of an intimate contact and even identity of our natures and motives. Much more difficult becomes our forming opinions about beings who have in their inner nature, transcended our plane of existence. The intellectuals who are great, who are famous these days, at best, are but synthetic personalities, the mere laboratory products of the systems of the schools of man-made, mind-born Ethics, and are but toy replicas of the great, whose conduct is spontaneous, whose character is the radiation of the sun. They are the products of those mysterious cosmic processes, which make the sun and the moon. For the dead toy replicas of the great it becomes physically impossible to analyze the inner motives of the beings of immortal inspiration. All opinions expressed by such lower men about those who live, move and have their being in acceptance of the cosmic inspiration, are as false as the opinion of the clergy who declared Joan of Arc a witch and sentenced her to be burnt alive. Sword is the symbol of the creative processes of that mysterious incomprehensible Creator-Complex of nature. Nature is not Creation they say, it is spontaneous evolution they say; it is not Being they say, it is Eternal Becoming they say; it is not spiritual they say, it is material and mechanical they say; it is all electrical substance they say; it is not soul they say; but only the insane doubt now that it is a complex. No one view can define it accurately. Guru Gobind Singh sees the flash of the sword in this dark mystery complex. He sings his "Song of Sword" and by its cadence transmutes the miserable wretched people of Punjab, not into temporal kings, a miracle, which even an ordinary worldly man of empire carving ambitions like Sivaji, could perform in transmuting his mercenary soldiers into Peshwas, but into Phula Singh Akalis. Cut these disciples of Guru Gobind Singh as they did cut Bhai Mani Singh, instead of blood, the nectar of inspiration flows from their veins. The name of the Eternal resounds in their bones and as they of the world sawed them asunder, only that glorious cadence (Sat Nam) was in response to the axe strokes. His disciples rose all of a sudden from nowhere, as Superman, who were, as the same time, like the clouds of the sky, raining as they were bidden to rain, and striking down like the bolt of heaven as they were bidden. Not protest but obedience was their creed. Their protest was one with the protest of the Divine Creator complex, called Hukam by Guru Nanak in Japji, and it shone in the Image of Sword seen by Guru Gobind Singh. The Khalsa came ready made from Him … that blue-wearing Superman, armed from head to foot wholly dedicated, ready to die – the historian says, as Minerva from Jupiter – a highly explosive personality, showering both nectar and thunder, as the merest tool of the Cosmic Complex. In human history there is no example of such transcendent inspiration, unless we go and see the personalities imbued with the Bushido spirit of Japan, as transmuted by the spirit of the great Tathagata. I have often said that Guru Gobind Singh created a spiritual Japan in the Punjab out of His spirit and he can be sympathetically understood only by the Bushido spirit of Japan as informed of Buddhism. Riding His Blue Horse, clad in the robe of the whole starry Heaven, and followed by His Five Horsemen, he goes riding by the doors of His lowly disciples still and as the horses strike the rocks, the sleeping ones awaken still and sing: O King of Purple eternity, who loves us, Who comes and lies with us at, Night unknown to us, Comforting us in our distress, O Weaver of the Crest Jewel of all-Godliness, all-Humanity, Come and meet us the peasants of the Punjab. O Glorious Guru Gobind Singh! Come ride through our hearts, Come ride through our eyes. Guru Gobind Singh is the Indweller of Souls. He is the vision that vitalizes the decaying the finite centers of life with the touch of the Infinite. Name Him and you are transported. Name Him and you ride very death to His Door. Woe be for the day, who, surrendering their soul to the false brilliance of any intellect, the disciples of the Glorious Guru would turn their back on Him – once before in history, they did so. The disciples left Him at Anandpur. But they found no place to go to. Wives denied their husbands, mothers their sons, sisters their brothers – for the Punjabi Sikh woman truly saw there is no life but with Him. What is the world without Him? So they died. So they lived. Said Khan the Moghul General doubted. All have intellects, not only the modern subtle-minded Hindu. Guru Gobind Singh came riding His Horse to him in his camp. Sayeed Khan leveled his gun at Him. It missed the Guru. He was asked to try again. Said Khan put his head on the Guru’s feet. He was informed. The camp lay where it was. The armies of the Moghul still besieged Anandpur. But Sayeed Khan went up to the hills singing Him, as a maiden, falling in love with her man, renounces all and sink into the depths of life. But the Guru does not show Himself to those who have not entered the shrine of Acceptance, who have not understood Reverence, who have no wonder in their eyes, and who love not the spiritual Beauty, which transmutes man into angels in an instant. Perfection is in His Glance. There is no standard in the East or in the West by which these intellectuals can form an idea of the inspiration of the Infinite. It was a stream that flowed to Him, which He received within Himself. "I was," said he, "Reluctant to come here on this earth. But I came." My soul is still engulfed in that current of Inspiration-Infinite. He came and he went. Only the trail of his garment, still shines, the sound of the hoofs of His steed is still audible. Wrapped in that shining garment, listening to that sound, we go daily where He is. This is the religion of His Disciples. Our eyes are red with the glory that He has shed on our paths. And we go on. His sword waves the lightning flashes in the cloud-filled sky, but it rains after the centuries of oppressing heat. "Man is the Temple, Let this flame burn within there, As the Lamp of the Eternal, They are my Khalsa, In whose hearts burns this Inspiration Of the Infinite, day and night. The story undimmed, He is the pure." (Prof. Puran Singh)
