Balanced View of Hindu-Sikh Shaster Vidiya

Recommended Posts

Anyway going back to the topic, can someone sincere from nihang niddar singh akhara can comment on my posts above in this thread and along with bhai taran singh posts in this thread posted reply with some deep thought. This goes out to all the serious students..and oh please just spare me - oh wait until next site update..tired of hearing that both on sa and ss.com...i think you guys need to fire your disgruntled ex akj pr guy who made sarbloh and shastarvidya website and start from scratch if you guys seriously meant the below:

Let's be honest, that post my Niddar is just a salesman's pitch. He is using the tragedy to gain more chelay for his dodgy 'martial' art. Once you've gained most of the naive and foolish Sikhs in one country, you need to try and gain the naive and foolish Sikhs in another country, expand or die that's the maxim. I trust that the vast majority of the Sikh Sangat in Canada and the US will not be taken in by this snake oil salesman.

Canada is another story, but I'd love for him to come to California. We wouldn't be scared or shy to attend and be very critical of what he's teaching.

the demo you guys are referring to after which a student of Dr hatori asked Niddar Singh about a particular method of swordsmanship, the guy actually said...that they have a similar method in their system but they never understood how it is used and its context on the battlefield until Niddar Singh explained it. The other instance regarding Shiva/Kali pentras..apparantly after these were shown to masters of the katori/Shinto Japanese disciplines..They said they saw elements of higher level techniques of which they also have in their art but are secret and not taught to anyone unless they have at least 20 years of training with the masters.

The question is, these Japanese systems are very secretive and select about who they teach, how did Niddar Singh gain knowledge of their secret higher level techniques ?? how did he adapt this to the unique nature of indo Persian weaponry ? how did he gain knowledge of how these techniques are used in a battle field context ??

do you seriously think he's sort of genius that he can invent an entire system, blended from other arts and get away with doing world wide demos ?? do you think the other martial arts practitioners would have exposed him ?? instead the likes of pat oMalley, maul mornie, krishna godhaswamia etc.. are convinced of the authenticity of the art.

regardless of whether you have issues with his belief set...nobody has yet disproved the art form, instead it's just made up stories, defamation, twisted tales etc...

I dont know anything about his background hence I dont know if if the techniques names were ever changed, nor do I have any affiliation to the akharas I dont train/study in the art either. I have trained in some other arts and generally have an interest in combat arts.

Plenty of people have backgronds in different martial arts...the whole MMA scene is a prime example whats that got to do with anything ? How do you go from Kung Fu an Gatka...to suddently having knowledge of edged weapons, swordsmanship, spears, daggers, mace etc...specific to Indo persian weaponry ?

Feel free to contact any weapons collectors, experts, Royal Armouries etc...they will tell to the design, weight, method of weilding indo persian bladed weapons iespecially swords is entirely different to the westen methods.

The questions still remain..who was his teacher ? Where did he learn these combat systems ? It's definitely not Gatka or Kung Fu. Although 1 thing I do agree with I did find an old demo video from Slough on google videos where there was some ritualistic dancing identical to what you see Gatka practioners doing...not sure what that was about.

Personally im not intrested in all the different belief set stuff...end of the day you got to be pretty stupid and weak minded if you end up on drigs etc by going to a martial arts class.

Cisco singh, if you don't know anything about him. why you representing him here? Can we get input from senior students of shastar vidya or close associates who pastered all the devi's pictures on shastarvidya and sarbloh website without actually going in depth of sargun and nirgun theology.

I be the last one to be insecure about mythological and historical relationship with sargun maya(shakti) in Gurmat. But whoever the p/r guy for nihang niddar singh definitely went over board with it with all the pictures of devi's, it takes new beginner of sikhi away from gurmat as not everybody could understand the depth...at the end of day they are energy points nothing else and devi's/devta's pictorial representation is not a true representation of energy because these energy exist in everyone and in every human being in form of chakras... by having pictorial form of energy in form of devi or devtas, it takes one away from exploring energy within than praying to these idols and bringing notions of polytheism in sikhi which is totally contary to Gurmat......In fact buddhism actually bought idols in india... they meant to give these energies pictorial form so normal pendu can understand it... it wasn't like this..it all back fire miserably, now so called snanatan sikhs from uk are doing the same thing bringing idols in sikhi.

Sri Guru Gobind Singh over and over in sri dasam granth again warns us from danger of falling into whirlpool of idols and idols worshiping be it devi or devta's or avtars and guru maharaj advise us focus should be shabad nirgun but sanatan sikhs from uk are falling same foot steps of many shiv shakat upasakhs and falling into some traps as many vaishavas/shaivas hindus did.

I think you've got it twisted, I dont represent anyone nor am I afflilated to any Jathebandi, I present my own views based on my own experiences and things I have seen. Which is exaxtly what internet forums are for, sensible discussion between individuals whatever theyre differing viewpoints maybe.

I dont think your going to have much luck with anyone from the "senior students of shastar vidya or close associates" as you put it, maybe they dont visit this forum. Your best bet is as I have said before go direct to the individuals concerned if your UK based and pose your queries, it's better than speculating on an online forum. If they dont reply to emails etc your only real option is to go visit personally at one of the akharas.

2. Have I really been disowned by Nihang groups in India?

I recently came across a letter published on the internet alleging mischief on my part and purporting to be signed by various heads of Nihang groups to which I am affiliated by tradition.

Alerted by the absence of letterheads or dates, and personally having met several of the supposed signatories within the past year, I contacted them. They assured me that the letter was a forgery and that the individuals involved in producing this fake document had been identified.

In fact, I was told that if they were ever spotted in any Nihang encampment in India in the future, they would be dealt with harshly, using the traditional form of punishment meted out to a slanderer. I will be visiting the Nihang leaders in person later this year on a research trip and will follow up on these discussions.

It appears that the motive of these character assassins is to diminish my standing and influence in the community. Why?

It is alleged that one of their underlying goals is to perpetrate what a wise old man once called ‘salvation fraud’, i.e. they wish to promote themselves as devout Nihangs for the purpose of establishing themselves as ‘gurus’ in the West amongst the unsuspecting Europeans. From this position of authority they would then be able to fully exploit and (mis)lead the trusting flock, misappropriating any funds received for their personal gain and generally establish themselves to pursue their dubious agendas of self aggrandisement.

It would appear that they see me as an obstacle in the pursuit of their strategy, because the history, philosophy and traditions I present through my books, websites and SV akharas help empower innocent people to see through such shallow characters and protect themselves from their despicable behaviour.

Rab rakha.

Enjoy.

Niddar is hilarious, who was the person who poshed up this letter? I already know who you lot are going to accuse and I find it hilarious, would just find it more convincing if you guys weren't scared to name who supposedly made up the letter haha.

Also funny he's claiming others are claiming to be Gurus when he had the audacity to call himself a Gurdev

His response is hilarious, why doesn't he name the people when according to him the 'fraud' has been exposed.

The above could easily be a self description of himself!

    • Don't be suprised if alot of videos that exposed these people and things go missing. The so called protecting kids and hate speech is a sham its actually denying free speech and free expression of thought. Cos alot of mild videos with alternative views and thoughts are taken down and channels closed for no reason. There are some nasty racist and pedofiles that deserved their channels closed but those warning people about stuff and videos even featuring crimes by governments and groups they got taken down too. Yet they were important in highlighting the crimes of these people so people could see the truth about what they got up to.
    • Here is my list of current problems we face as a kaum.  Traveling around giving aid / langar to non-sikhs. This thought was put into Sikh psyche as a strategy to destroy Sikhs from within by the enemy who wanted to move Sikhs away from position of strength to weakness. Guru ka langar never went around the world helping non-sikhs like this. Guru Ka langar was based on giving langar to the local sangat community. However was the non-sikh poor masses who came to the Sikhs and gurdwara's to get langar and get parchar to convert to Sikhi that made non-sikhs want to be a Sikh. This current innovation which has been created and run by idiots and is wasting sangats money giving langar away for free with no benefits for the kaum. The biggest gift a Sikh can give to a non-sikh is parchar because by that parchar the Sikh too will have to reform their character to live by what they preach. Not having well armed sewadaar guards of Gurdwara's. Safety and security of guru's house and his congregation should be paramount yet what do we see today? any afghan ahmed abdali, isis salafi muhammad musin, mughal aurangzeb can walk in and kill without any hindrance like we seen recently. What is the fall out? Sikhs will stop coming to gurdwara's and thus gurdwara commitee's lose income and gurdwara shuts down eventually. The non-muslim hating conquest loving isis type jihadi mullah nutjob wins as sikhi is seen as weak and finished eventually because gurdwara's are no longer safe spaces for people wanting to worship and congregate.  Sikhs of sarbat da bhulla mindset. Well meaning humanitarian liberal Sikhs but very gullible very politically and religiously naive not understand the full context of meaning of sarabat da bhalla and when to apply it. perhaps most of them have a sort of stockholm sydromme imprisoned by cultures and ideologies that are against Sikh interests and prevent their own community to survive. Fake Sikh puppet leaders. They are only in it for their own power, fame/popularity contest or financial gain (eg recent akal takht jathedhars, sgpc leaders, DT harnaam singh, Badal dal, congressi captain amrinder singh, etc). We need to support leaders who openly fight for the interests of Sikhs without being shy about it. Not having our own sovereign state nation. To conduct our own economic, military, religious and political affairs is the very reason we have so many problems. But its not necessary for the community to survive and thrive if other problems are dealt with. Inter-faith marriages and lack of promotion of inter-caste or inter-race Sikh marriages. Sikhs should activity promote inter-caste marriages within punjabis at the very least and help promote those non-sikhs to convert to Sikhi to marry someone within the faith.  
    • The tell-tale sign of an appointed gatekeeper of public discourse. Guiding the narrative and traffic of discussion away from "dangerous" areas that might prove to be troublesome for those at the very top. Someone like that gets to that position usually through attendance and membership of lodges... You can tell we're under lockdown. The mind goes to strange places when all the work of the day is done, lmao.
    • Youtube is owned by Google and like Facebook and twitter, a lot of these platforms are being pressured by the authorities to conform.  
    • YouTube videos about him knowing this kid for a long time have been deleted by YouTube aswell       Think YouTube released a statement a short while back about they gnna start deleting videos which do not meet their terms and conditions.   Their all in on it together.
