2013 Calendar (Puratan Dates) finally available for download now!


Recommended Posts

The people that have gathered the information to get the correct dates should present the calendar to Sri Akal Takht Sahib. One benti I have and I believe others would want the same, is not to distribute the new calendar until Sri Akal Takht Sakhib approves of it. We need to learn from Gurmukhs that we praise every day. Nothing good can come out of releasing the new calendar as the Khalsa Panth is already confused over the two calendars that are being used by Sikhs. These type of decisions need to be made at the Panthic level and not in jathas or individually.

Essence of Sikhi is to celebrate Maharaj's infinity state everyday. Maharaj never comes or goes anywhere, he is always present.

Agreed, even if the calender is 100% right Sri Akaal Takht Sahib is supreme.

Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale was barred by Sri Akaal Takht Sahib to bring shastar into Darbar Sahib, but it's Dasam Patshah's hukam to keep shastar. Sant Ji respected the hukam although he wasn't wrong and did matha tek from outside.

We need to unite under Sri Akaal Takhat Sahib and not under jathebandian. When this happens no missionary or other anti panthic force can stop us.

Vaheguru... as i said before an article will be out shortly. at the end of it we're not shoving the calendar down anyones throat its upto you what you believe, we dont represent any one jathebandi - this is simply based on the dates that were used since the time of guru maharaj in bikrami

also benti if someone could post the hukumnama sahib regarding the new revised calendar then please do

How fast we forget. Sri Akal Takht Sahib just recently for Satguru Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji Maharaj Parkash had to tell the Sikh sangat and Gurdwaras to celebrate on January 18 as many fanatical characters decided to celebrate early.

Are you or whoever made up the new calendar going to present it to Sri Akal Takht Sahib?

if you had looked at the calendar you would see jan 18th too as the gurpurb :)

and takth sahib already has this calendar because it was original calendar please wait for article to come out answering everyones questions..

I believe you understand the concern that has been raised by others so there is no need to go back and forth about it. And I have no intentions of knocking your seva down. You have stated yourself this new calendar has different dates than the current calendar which is followed at Sri Akal Takht Sahib. Anyways, i'll wait for the article.

Heres the article.

just to repeat our stance anyone is welcome to follow whatever they wish. the calendar is just an attempt to show what the dates have been for the past three centuries - we see the reformed calendar as only re-enforcing the original bikrami so it is a positive move to towards the restoration of truth :)

I think we only need to follow calendar approved from Sri akal takht sahib regardless of our affiliations with any jathabandi. This issue may seem harmless to many but not following same event dates is leading us into the social disintegration of our kaum (Sikh community).

If we are saying that we stand with Sri akal takht sahib then we really should practice that in reality. We should not nit-pick on several issues with Sri akal takht sahib; either we are 100% with takht sahib or we are not.

Even if jathabandi had their own maryada going on for 100's of years then they should keep it in internally but in respect with Sri takht sahib.

I think they should present it to Sri Akal Takht Sahib and then the calendar can be introduced to the whole Khalsa Panth.
