Learn Farsi In The Sikh Tradition

Recommended Posts

Last year TURIYA Charity assisted by the School of Elusive Fighting, organised Summer Martial Arts Seminars to raise funds for the amazing..... Bhai Nand Lal Project.

The project is not a 'memorial' website. It is an erstwhile attempt to help ENLIVEN the highly sophisticated, artistic and spiritual SIKH CULTURE, which has sadly and slowly diminished over the last few centuries.

As a natural next step, TURIYA is bringing to the world sangat the first ever dedicated on-line Farsi in the Sikh Tradition beginners course. The aim is to empower Sikhs to retrieve their heritage and for the sangat to develop the skill of doing the amazing Zafarnama and Bhai Nand Lals ghazals JUSTICE.

There are only a few places remaining for serious and dedicated students. If interested follow the instructions on the poster!


TURIYA

Our aim is to galvanise a flourishing global Sikh culture by innovatively enlivening Sikh tenets and heritage, and serve the Sikh community by providing a multitude of intelligent resources for its spiritual, educational and social development. As a part of this vision, we launched a website on Bhai Nand Lal and the Court of Guru Gobind Singh back in February 2013. This online interactive course is an extension of the website, with the purpose of providing the global Sikh panth with an enlivened understanding of the Persian heritage of Sikhi.

Thanks.

Afaid not. They are inter-active - Student to Teacher.

The aim is to establish professional high quality education (something missing in our Quam).

Would still be good to record the lessons, and open a forum (or use this one) for people to ask questions and learn at their own pace.

History, means moving forward from the past.

After you re-establish professional high quality education, you move on to the masses.

Why not kill two with one bullet?

Remember, that for most of the time most of the qaum was un-pardh.

We can change that,

    • I see what u did there.  Swam-i singh I had heard that there was also a time when sikhs would go take ishnaan at harmandar sahib to thumb their noses at the guards. But this woukd be the time when the sarovar was not filled up in the seige.  Also that there was a grouo of singhs. And they woukd go each night to light the jot. And would get captures each time...
    • This was beautiful. Thanks for sharing.  I always wanted to add the British and Persian sources to our history. And this person has done so. For example they say Dr Cole did the sutures for Sri Guru Gobind singj ji. I would love to find that account.  The way he added the last names to the singhs seemed wrong. But it also helps to connect with them. That these heroic ppl really were our ancestors. (Its nice to see my last name there And the infighting and betrayal by our own ppl, is very hard to read about. But hey at least it shows what we were going through now isnt new.  The painting that he put for Akali phula singh is so beautifully rendered. I used to think before the enlightenment period (when they started experimenting with 3D painting and lighting) that all olden paintings looked 2D and flat. But even without using the european somber colors and life size figures,  the painting shows everything with perfect proportions and depth. The colors are nice too. I love the word warrior-priests. Totally gonna replace saint-soldiers. 
    • Forgive me, I dont mean to be offensive. But what is the Truth? It sounds so vague and hippyish. You can say anything.  It is simply the Truth....it is simply the Void....all.these religions are false, there is only the Way.  Are you trying to say there is no afterlife, no philosophy, no teachings except of morality? 
    • I meant literally. It is hard to send a spoon thru the computer screen. But figuratively, it also works. If that person had asked kindly for further explanation or the exact shabad. It would be easy to spoon feed that info as you mentioned. But they commanded that I stop quoting gurbani (unless done to their specific guidelines). So yeah difficult to spoon feed a stubborn person.
    • They have a solution for that. The right wing is claiming that the Taj mahal used to be a shivji temple and was overtaken by the mughals.
