is nanaksar a cult sect, what is it ?


Recommended Posts

I'm not a Nanaksari, nor have I ever been one. I used to think Nanaksar was not good because of what I heard from people. But from what I have read of Baba Nand Singh Jee's jeevani, he was a Mahapursh without a doubt. Their Gurdwara is called a Nanaksar Thaath. They don't make langar, they don't have a Golakh. I know a few Nanaksaris who were former Monas, but after doing seva and sangat at Nanaksar Thaaths they became Amritdhari Singhs.

Ik hor bachan dass nu yaad aaya hai.

During 1965 Indo China war, indian sikh soldiers when their guns froze due to cold and stopped working, and it was almost hand to hand combat, they witnessed or had darshan of a mahapurash with a khanda in his hand fighting alongside with the shaheed singhs. when they came in touch with Baba Ishar Singh ji later on , they realised it was Baba Ishar Singh ji who was fighting there in a gupt form.

One time, ,Baba Kehar Singh ji, head ragi of Nanaksar told this bachan to my mom's masad ji. Baba Ishar Singh ji went into a room, got it locked from outside, and told Baba Kehar singh not to open it till he comes out. After a while when Baba Ishar Singh ji came out, he was in full bir rass , a khanda in his hand, dripping with blood, chola filled with blood. As they were doing more gupt bachan someone knocked outside, and baba ji jumped into a nearby pool of water and came back into sehaj rass.

So wherever there is bhagti , there is shakti. Its not just about a bunch of fairy tales.

If Baba Nand Singh ji was all about Guru Nanak, Baba Ishar Singh ji was all about Dasveh Patshah.

I can reaccount tales of three people who had darshan of Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji with the kirpa of Baba Ishar Singh ji.

1) Sant Baba Bhajan Singh ji patiale wale: He personally told me when he had the darshan of Guru Gobind Singh ji , he fell unconsciously on the ground. At that time Baba Ishar Singh ji were doing katha of "darshan dekhat ki sudh ki na sudh rahi mat me na mat hai"

2) My mom's masad ji and masi ji: Both of them told personal tales of how they got darshan of Guru ji , and they just melted , they turned into water kind of feeling at that time. I was very little at that time or else I would have requested more details as to how Guru ji looked.

I know people out of ignorance or out of their personality types question or may condemn somethings, who cares, i feel connected with that samparda, i love it , hor ki chahida hai,

i wish i can get sangat of someone like Baba Ishar Singh ji ...but just waiting for that day.

My father was once very ill and I recall he said I died in night and Had darshan OF GURU NANAK DEV JI. Guru ji ordered my father to go back and serve the people.

Took my young sons to a Nanaksar thaath the other day.

They were shocked to see a big imaginary picture of Guru Nanak in the Darbar Hall and

people bowing to it.

They felt very uncomfortable with this and also the kaachi baani being sung there.

They told me they do not want to go anywhere near that place again which is not even a Gurdwara.

I never bow to the pics, whenever i go. But to Maharaj ji instead, I think its coz of Nanaksar i got interested in Sikhi, whereas befor i went to gurdwara i used to just sit and not understand much of paat. Understand what Ragmaala is saying, i am not spokesperson either, would love to go to Kaleran one. Its the stories of Babaji being what they were that gave me hope to carry on with life.

And how all their attention used to be on Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji. It maybe different, but its peaceful too. Raagis also sing in Raags, that's great to listen to. Some of the best raagis i seen there, love it.

Ps: also love how Maharaj ji are placed on higher position, this impressed me most, as more respect towards them automatically came within me.

Respect to Baba Nand ji.

If Nanaksaris are all about Guru Nanak, then why don't they have langar?

The practice of langar was started by Guru Nanak dev ji.

Waheguru ji....when Dhan Dhan Baba Nand Singh ji were doing bhagti....Guru Nanak Dev ji did bachan to him that you don't have to go anywhere to ask for food....your food willl come to you......and that bachan is been kept till now.....

also paiseaan da matha nahi tekde othe........that's why sangat brings in parshada.....ona di sewa lagdi hai........

They do have langer on pooranmashi.......also sangat do bring other stuff the rest of the days.......and people are hungry can have something from the gurdwara kitchen.....it's not that someone comes and they don't have food to provide them....a singh will ......

Baba Nand singh ji ne Guru Nanak Dev ji de pushan te eh bachan mangeya c..ke ik vi cheez te ona da naam na howe........koi vi jaga ona de naam te na bane......Guru sahib de bachan han ke oh apne pyareaan di parsansha aap kraunda hai....

That's why Nanaksar is called "bhagti da ghar"....coz it is all about nirol bhagti........

some people say....they only praise Guru Nanak Dev ji...no other Guru................but at the time of saying this they forget that all Gurus are one Jot......no difference .............

other thing to highlight...they always recite more bani/ardas/keertan as compared to any other gurdwara ( no offence to others please)......which is what we are here to do......

I think the above posters Tuhintuhin and rinku_sikh are spot on, the satkaar is unique and very very lovely to watch too.

I think when people have been used to committee wale gurdware and not experinced other gurdwaras they think something odd about them, but we dont realise that we are the ones that have been isolated from the world and not seen satkaar and sampardasa that have been going for years and years from proper Mahapursh/brahmgiani times, thus to our brain it seems different and with me personally i must say i am beginning to enjoy the adjustment. definitely not a cult, we had a Sukhmani Sahib ji paat at our house, and the sevadars were sooo soo gud with their satkaar, and didnt look down on us that we didnt know anything, the kirtanis are great too. They know how to sing..and it makes u want to know more about Sikhi.,

    • Parent 1. Obviously it depends on the content and the aim of the school. It would be good to have all aspects of Sikhi in one place which has authenticity. No too much pressure for them to learn and churn out material to sit exams. It would be more of quality rather than quantity . 2. Support level , to get a clear understanding what will be taught and the kids and parents expectations right from the beginning. 3. Yes Cost does matter. We have 100's of Gurudawara who should have a budget set aside to invest in the kids and our future generation. So ideas such as this can be researched and developed without thinking about funding. If the cost was reasonable I would pay plus as already mentioned if free its not taken seriously. 4. Self paced is good , but there needs to be a facility where questions can be answered. May be have one or 2 live sessions and the rest self paced.   Sangat 1. Yes there should be tiers , but I think most importantly the material should be authentic. As theres a lot of online material , which ones are good resources , average and bad . 2. May be set up some kind of certification structure for sikhi which over time is recognized and can be used by individuals to train/educate other members of the public. Like many certification courses , they cost but not too much ( starting form £10 plus) The task should be to get as many people doing the online courses as possible, then the price can be low and you will cover your costs. 3.It should be focused to all the public regardless of their background. Made available to businesses ,schools, colleges, universities as part of the establishments diversification program. You have organisations such as Basics of Sikhi , Rajoana TV , Sikh Network etc.. who are doing a brillant job of explaining about sikhi. Tap in to them , make it a collective journey as you may find , they may already have a structure , resources in place , they just need a proper online presence. Reach out to the Sangat who have gyan about Sikhi  via social media and Gurudawara , as there are many Scholars out their. Why is Basics of Sikhi successful , because they keep it simple , easy to understand and follow.  As a parent one of the biggest hurdles for kids is speaking punjabi. Having dialogue with their parents/grandparents . My younger one , hardly speaks punjabi , but what I have found is sikh stories helps a lot. May be have online live sessions where sangat speak punjabi , general punjabi so at least they can particpate in conversations with the elder generation.
