Christmas trees in houses of Sikhs


Recommended Posts

Just a message for after we have dealt with the trees and presents. -Lets not forget th 27th........Basics Of Sikhi on Youtube and Facebook... on his channel he shared this.

Sangat Ji, Important news from Punjab...please share far and wide
Bhai Rajoana (letter of today) has asked that we all support the Akaal Takht sahib order that ALL SIKHS WORLDWIDE are to do a 15 minute meditation of 5 Mool Mantars and Vaheguru Simran on Thursday 27th December at 10:15am India time. Thats at 4:45am here in the UK (Amrit Vela). This is to remember the Shaheedi of the Younger Sahibzaade. Dont worry what length of mool mantar, just do it!
As the year ends, lets get back into the feeling of Unity, if 22 million people globally come together, under One Nishaan Sahib and One Vaheguru, magic can happen. Please pass on, set your reminders, lets help each other get up and do this.
Thursday, 4:45am, 15 mins of Simran and remembering the Shaheedi of our younger brothers and role models.
Spread it - share it - Do it

The maryada i was given by Sant Nicholas Lapland (Finlandwale) was that its okay to keep a Christmas tree so long as i have shashtar hanging from the tree.

I'm going to go get artificial tree that has been in the garage for years and set it up just because this thread inspired me to. Dhan dhan sant baba Jesus Nazareth wale

It is not befitting of a Sikh of the Guru to put up a Christmas tree in his/her house. Firstly we are not Christians that we need to celebrate this holyday of Yasoo Masee. Secondly if your excuse is t

Paaji i being sarcastic sorry i will now reply inpure gora seriouness....in all fairness it seems we have found the answer to your weakness by the attempt of you questioning my alleged weakness.so you are putting an xmas tree to please your goreh neighbours in an attempt to reinstate you are no talliban....for many years sikhs celebrated diwali only mainstream sikh now celebrate bandi chor.... Likewise many mainstream celebrate xmas with santa but soon the mainstream will remember thses days for chamkaur as paaji has just wrote of his anand at fatehgarh...also paaji who wrote about fatehgarh your corerct about children, theres a documentaory on nihangs and how baba hari singh edpucated a young child...im not a nihang by the way but one thing that i wil never forget is when the presenter asked the young boy dont you want toys etcand the young boy replied no.. Im having gyan of god and weapons are my toys.something along those lines notquoted.he must have been about6/7 years old... Giani mehtabs brother ..gurmat/sikhi is a philosophy to accept others without the need to indulge so to speak....

Also lukcky singh lets put colestrol aside. Ang1430 is the butter to the 1429 ang...like it is the thorkato the sabji. Like the sugar to the ladoo. Also paaji think of raag as ras/love/prem meqning ang 1430 and meditation meaning all angs up to 1429...now meditation alone can take you places even to dasamduar....but without preM youdont getadvait poran chit anand

I never said it doesn't teach anything or if it is meaningless.

It is the final seal and I said that is is gurbani.(didn't I say that??)

But it doesn't teach or give messages like the rest of the 1429 pages. If you can tell me the message it gives rather than conlusion, then I will happily admit I'm wrong and misinformed.

Please listen to raagmala Katha by sant giani gurbachan Singh ji

I never thought of that, because I didn't think anyone spoke about it too deeply.

Now you mention it, I will try and locate this and hopefully learn as well as advance forward.

-Thanks!

Basically, this is my beleif personally that as the Sikh Nation has 99% discarded "Raag Vidya" the beauty, the flow, the imagery and the sheer genius of Sri Raagmala, is vanishing. Learn about Raag Vidya and then see the antriv arth of what Sri Raagmala is doing.

A big mistake is to look at Sri Raagmala as an index of Raags/Raags used in Aad Guru.

Once a person begins to experience the magic of Raags then he can be able to access the sublime energy behind Sri Raagmala.

Thats my opinion anyway.

The loss of Raag Vidya has caused so many problems for the Sikh Panth.

I think the above highlights the most common mistake. There are many out there, as we know that deny that it is Guru's bani and they claim that there is no regard for akaal purakh (many akj's, I think!) and then argue about it's inclusion.

Then there are the majority lke me, who have always accepted it as bani, but see it more of a seal or index of raags.

In the last 24 hours, I have learnt something fascinating !!

Thanks to the members that pointed in th right direction,-

- I can now see and appreciate that just the beginning where it describes 'There is One Raag with 5 wives'' is not being literal or totally poetic. - It is talking about ONE God and the 5 primal sounds or panch shabad !!

From the One came the 5 sounds, is mentioned throughout the granth as we know.

Just as a seed is at the beginning, this is 'ek onkaar'.

Then we have the root(mool mantar), and the trunk (japji sahib),and then the branches (the Adi granth upto page 1429) and finally the Flowers that blossom (rag mala-page 1430) !!

From the above, I hope everyone can see and appreciate that without the flowers, there is no completeness and the flowers don't summarise the whole growth stage from the seed either !!

For those of you who are unsure of the real significance (like I was), I urge you to contemplate and give this last page some time !

Thanks to singh1234567 and chatanga for the influence !

Waheguru and enjoy your christmas holidays off work ! :biggrin2:

Why you guys wishing each other marry christmas? yaar are you sikhs or christians?

It's tongue n cheek!!!!!

, - ths thread is about sikhs that have xmas trees and give presents..etc....

If there is any lesson to be learnt from this thread- it is that this time of the year should remind us of sahibzhade.

Especially the younger two that were offered all the treasures and riches of this world so that they may lose their sikhi, but they didn't budge the slightest.

We now have sikhs that are converted to other religions because sikhs aren't helping them with money or golack money doesn't reach them. Instead christian missionaries offer them finance and they convert losing their sikhi for some dollars and pounds. A TRUE sikh NEVER loses his sikhi for anything, not for any riches, money or promises.

From this thread we can learn that a western cultural thing like christmas can NOT lure a sikh away from sikhi.

Even if the sahibhzadhe were taken on a tour to show them all the wealth, riches and women that muslims dream about in heaven,even then they would NOT budge the slightest. To have the temptations and influence right infront of your eyes and then to refuse them is the strength every sikh should have.

Many sikhs have business's etc.. where they will have trees and other festive items for the staff or clients/customers.

Some will have them at homes as we know. BUT a sikh's sikhi should not be affected by these cultural items and it shoudn't be.

If you think that a sikh is losing his faith with a christmas tree or that the tree can tempt him to cut his khes,then he wasn't a sikh in the first place.

Let the other temptations and influences be there for all a true sikh cares Like the sahibzhade a sikh will NEVER give up his sikhi for anything.
