Doing keertan while Akhand path is going on

Recommended Posts

Waheguru i ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh ji,

these days lot of smagams are going on where thousands of sangat get together, everybody seems to be gursikh, i have seen like AKHAND path is going in queues and right next to it keertan is also going on, is that gurmat?

I can companre it with a example, if you are speaking and trying to make people understand something and the listner in stead of listening to you starts speaking and repeating your words, how would you feel?

same way like akhand path means without a break and people do keertan while the path is going on that means people are not listening what guru is saying instead they want guru to listen to them first.

for guru its ok people do it on regular basis, and guru still gives us everything but is it gurmat, i am not talking about regular people i am talking about amritdhari singhs and kaurs

I would really appreciate comments and advice about this grwoing trend, which I think its wrong,

also I have seen people doing JAP ji sahib path or sukhmani sahib ji da path alond with Akhand path, so are we listening to guru again??

Having other Keertan programs at the Same time as Akhand Paat is totally wrong. I have seen people turn off the Akhaand Paat mic and turn on the one for Keertan and basically the akhand paat is "turned off" for a while. The whole point of an Akhand Paat is to listen to the entire Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee.

It is ALL wrong !!

You find dozens of simultaneous akhand parts going on at the same time in many gurdwaras.

This is all wrong !!!!

We have turned into a complete simple ritual !!! It is just like brahmin pooja, whereby you pay the pandit to do some puja for you whether you are there or not and you don't even have to listen to it!!

It is a disgrace and very upsetting when I come across this !

We need to bring this issue up with Sri Akaal Takhat Sahib and clarify Akhand Path Sahib maryada so such disrespect doesn't take place.

Most of this thing is done by Dera wala baba's, I saw kirtan samagam in TV, where there were many prakash of GURU GRANTH SAHIB and they were doing kirtan. We are talking about akhand paath and kirtan, there were many akhand paath there. Every Dera wala has there own rehit and there own logic to prove it. Akaal Takht can only excommunicate someone who doesn't have much of followers, but they cannot stop these baba's I Bet.

It's the same at India isn't it? Sri darbar sahib, second floor has Akhand paat sahibs and straight below open space is Kirtan constantly.

Sri akaal takht sahib is same, all the bungeh have Akhand paat sahibs, but all day Kirtan is heard and on loud speakers.

At other asthaans and takhts it's exactly the same. It may be manmat for you guys, but not necessarily for the panth

Recently I attended one marriage where akhand paat was going on. I found it bit uneasy but kept my -ve thoughts away. Example of darbar sahib makes sense as maryada of that asthan goes back to ages....

Johal sahib, can you be more specific on "dera wala babas".

Exactly which dera was it,I don't know. They were celeberating barsi of a sant with 7-8 prakash of GURU GRANTH SAHIB and bhai Guriqbal singh was doing keertan in same place and couple paathi were doing paath and with rest nobody was siting even for chaur. Many gurudwara in india have seperate space built for Akhand paath people who want that they should have akhand paath in a gurudwara. If we talk about Harmandir Sahib, when raagi's do keertan in sanctum sanctorum nobody do paath there. Different floor's different thing.
