Farlas are assoociated with Nihangs, who existed prior to the creation of the Khalsa. I highly doubt that every Sikh wore a farla otherwise you would see references to the farla in artwork depicting Sikhs from the period and also see reference to the farla in historical accounts recorded in the works of the British and other writers.

I have never seen paintings or artwork that show anyone other than Nihangs wearing farlas. I have never seen any historical texts or writings that suggest that all Sikhs wore farlas. If this was the case there would definitely be historical evidence to support this.

Modern day jathas have however hikacked Nihang bana and starting wearing farlas without understanding it's historical relevance.

My friend, there was a time when every Sikh man, woman and child was a warrior.

Btw....what is a 'nihung' anyway ? The history books written by second rate Sikh scholars say the word 'nihung' is Persian for 'crocodile'. This is wrong. The word only exists in classical Persian but even then it does not translate as 'crocodile'. It actually translates as 'mythical sea creature', more along the lines of things like the loch ness monster and mythical Greek sea creatures.

Okay Guys, i Found out About the Farla

1) A Farla can only be worn by a Nihang Singh that has done alot of Seva for the Khalsa Panth of their Dal e.g. Harianvela, Bidhichandye (Tarna Dal), 96 crore (Budha dal) Like 15 years of seva, or as Bhai Vadhbhag Singh Akali Does the asa di vaar paath ( Puratan 3 hours long) keertan and thats Y he got his Farla. Or Bhai Sukha Singh Akali got his Farla Because of his gyaan in Sri Dasam Granth (from my knowledge).

2) I think only Panjva Takht Budha dal can give people Farlas like theres a Farla ceremony and then i think they tell the maryada and tie it upon the Gursikh.

3) There is a Big Maryada for the farladhari Nihang Singh, as

. Waking up early like 12Am

. Reading all of the Tarna Dal Gutka Sahib or more Bani in the morning?

. and should do alot of Seva as spreading the panth and to get people into sikhi

This is all i know now :)

Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa!

Vaheguru JI Ki Fateh!

Akaaal!

My honest opinion is that we need serious scholars re-evaluating and re-writing Sikh scholars. To my mind, 50% of the things written by the accepted Sikh historians is either mistaken or plain false.

What we need is western born educated Sikhs getting educated in, among other things, the classical Persian language, and visiting academic institutions in places such as Kabul and Terhan to gain a better understanding of our history.

For too long we've been accepting as gospel either oral history or history written by second raters.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
