"9th Patshahi allowed Balaki daas's tasavvar {artist}, to paint a portrait of him."

Could you please provide a source for this statement?

Veer mohkam singh

Mukti Nama, 10th Patshahi states that: a Gursikh cannot marry into father's and mother's surname; if we drop our surnames, how can we tell, whether our potential partner, is blood related or not?

Our ancestors fought bravely, to maintain their identity, what right do we have to call them low?

None of the Gurus , starting with Guru Nanak Dev ji used last name - and also none of our shaheeds / great gursikhs - baba budha, bhai satidas , bhai matidas , baba bidhichand etc, and after amrit sanchaar - bohta singh, garja singh, mehtab singh, sukha singh etc - you get my point. Even in recent times people who took up arms against Indian tyranny didnt use castist names ....

So what right do we have to use caste based last names ?

Mehtab singh ji - thanks for the suggestion , added lines pertaining to fidelity

Singhbj singh - corrected - thanks for the suggestion

Can we make this is a sticky and encourage others to post more tuks ?

10th Patshahi uses the word "got" ( surname), in Mukti Nama. When Guru Ji tells us, not to marry into our mothers & fathers surname, then it is clear that Maharaj acknowledges the importance of surname.

Gurbani refers to Guru Sahiban as: Bhalla Amardas, Bedi, and Sodhi; are these not surnames?

Waheguru.....

"9th Patshahi allowed Balaki daas's tasavvar {artist}, to paint a portrait of him."

Exactly Mokham Singh Ji, Gurmat is marg which is spontenous flow of prem, bairaag, sargun, shabad, gyan aspects blended beautifully in naam - how can we totally shun off sargun aspects in our dharam? We be inadvertently doing khandan of gurbani if we did that.. Sargun too is saroop of maharaj along with shabad and nirgun-gyan. Regardless of whichever aspect one is attached, one thing is common between all is ego has to be surrender to any aspect of maharaj and ego has to die. This is ultimate fact which is common in all.

For eg- once bhagat has surrender his ego too sargun saroop of maharaj- satguru himself in sargun saroop draw bhagat into color of love and give him sargun-nirgun ekta shabad gyan- bhramgyan and mukhti, similarly goes for sikh who is attached to shabad aspect of maharaj once ego or individual surti-individualistic mind dies in shabad, satguru in form of shabad itself dissolve his sikh into shabad and leaving only shabad gyan -bhramgyan and finally similarly goes for upasakh of nirgun advait gyan aspect of maharaj- shabad gyan, once one has to totally disassociated themselves from ego and lost their individualistic mind totally- waken from dream-ego state always aware of supreme awareness bliss (sat chit ananda-gurparsad) within like unbroken current, satguru himself in form of self-atma-paratma draw his sikh towards its ultimate saroop and eventually merges his sikh into all pervading non dual(advait) - universal supreme consciousness bliss saroop of maharaj.

There is a difference between using a family name and discrimination based upon caste. Using Got is not anti-Sikhi, discriminating based on caste/class is. Gurbani uses words such as Chamar, Bhalla frequently. We could use Gots like the western people do, simply for heritage/identification purposes.

Didn't Bhai Gurdas refer to Guru Ji as 'Sodhi Patshah'?

Dos -

1.
Sabsai upar gur shabad beechar || and Gyan Vihoona Kath KathLoojhei ||
Strive to cotnemplate on guru's word all the time , read as much SGGS as possible with understanding of the meanings (not mere recitation)

We should earn honestly and share the extra with the needy - should do a dasbandh of both money and time.

Always speak softly to all - regardless of their caste ,skin color, gender or social status.

5. Jo Nar dukh main dukh nahee maney | Kanchan Maati Jaane || and Jinhee Pashhatha Hukam Thinh Kadhae N Rovana
Remain equanimous through happy and sad times - don't rejoice too much in good times and dont complain too much in bad ones.

6. So kyo manda Akhiye Jit Jamme Raajaan || and Har prabh mere Babla har devo Dan Meh Dajho ||

Equality of men and women and rejection of dowry (root cause of female infanticide) and grand weddings.

7. Mithya Tan Nahin Parupkaari

Use your body as a charitable vehicle - Donate blood while alive and pledge organ donation.

Bhai Satwant Singh and Kehar Singh (who put Indra to justice) - their last wish was that there organs be donated - even in their death they wished life for others.

8. Suniye Dukh paap Ka Naas ||

Listen to as much Gurbani as possible in guru's oradined Raag ....

Dont's -

1. Jaat Ka Garab Na Moorakh Gavaraa || and Sa Jaat Sa Paat hai jehe karam Kamaye ||
Drop your castist last name - don't claim belonging to any castist group , not even of your ancestors , when some asks you your got - answer with "our ancestors were lowest of low castes , now we are sikhs and hence have no caste" .

2. Haq paraya Nananka Us Sooar Us Gaay ||
Earn with the sweat of your brow - with honest means and never desire something that is not rightfully yours.

3. Nanak Mangan Jhakhna Dukh Chad Mangiye Sukh | Dukh Sukh Doye Kapre pehre jaye manukh ||
Instead of demanding material things from Guru such as health, money , job etc, try to culitvate a realtion of love.

7. ਪਰ ਤ੍ਰਿਅ ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਪੇਖੈ ਨੇਤ੍ਰ ॥ AND Gurmat Ridey Garrebi Aavey | Par nari de ner na jaave ||

Complete fidelity in Marriage - both man and woman do not look at anyone else lustfully -

Let me know your thoughts .

 

A very beautiful veechar panthicunity jee.

In addition to it, I would  humbly like to add a couple of verses of Dhan Dhan Saguru Arjun Dev Maharaj:

ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਜੀ ਦੁਖ ਭੰਜਨੁ ਤੇਰਾ ਨਾਮੁ

Dhukh Bhanjan Thaeraa Naam Jee Dhukh Bhanjan Thaeraa Naam

ਆਠ ਪਹਰ ਆਰਾਧੀਐ ਪੂਰਨ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਗਿਆਨੁ ॥੧॥

Aath Pehar Aaraadhheeai Pooran Sathigur Giaan ||1||

By doing this above, the consequence, or the result is that, He, comes and dwells within us, as seen in the following verse :

ਜਿਤੁ ਘਟਿ ਵਸੈ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਸੋਈ ਸੁਹਾਵਾ ਥਾਉ

Jith Ghatt Vasai Paarabreham Soee Suhaavaa Thhaao ||

Because, He goes there where He is called upon. If we call Him from our within, it is there where He comes and stays.

 

Sat Sree Akal.

    • Shalom Sri Akal... I mean, Sat Sri Akal, fellow Sikh brothers and sisters. 😅
    • That happened to me once. I did an additional Jap Ji Sahib for a few days. It was an accident. Make amends according to your conscience, and move on.
    • There is simply no reason to do agan bhet (tribute to the fire). There are ways of repairing books. (Yeah, I know Gutka Sahib is not a mere book, but I'm just talking about the technology of binding.) I have no clue why your soul doesn't agree to do path on that Gutka Sahib. Do you think it has been sullied? Even if you wrote Gurbani on something that was ritually impure, that would make it pure: ਤਰ ਤਾਰਿ ਅਪਵਿਤ੍ਰ ਕਰਿ ਮਾਨੀਐ ਰੇ ਜੈਸੇ ਕਾਗਰਾ ਕਰਤ ਬੀਚਾਰੰ ॥ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਗਉਤੁ ਲਿਖੀਐ ਤਿਹ ਊਪਰੇ ਪੂਜੀਐ ਕਰਿ ਨਮਸਕਾਰੰ ॥੨॥ The palmyra palm tree is considered as impure and so are deemed its leaves to be. But if the Lord's praise be written on it, we worship it and bow before it. p1293   Similarly, Guest Komal, for whatever you think the pages of the Gutka Sahib became "impure" by falling on the ground, it is still pure. Get it out of your head. The very Gurbani you're reciting says so. This is not to say that you should throw dirt on purpose on a Gutka sahib. It is only to say you shouldn't burn a Gutka for your mistake.
    • 1. Beggars can't be choosers. I'll take what we can get. I'm actually fine with numbers.  Yeah, so many of them have no clue what Gurbani says, but as long as they, in their minds, "ਮੰਨ" Guru Granth Sahib ji, that's good enough for me. Because who am I to say I'm any better than them? ਹਉ ਅਪਰਾਧੀ ਗੁਨਹਗਾਰ ਹਉ ਬੇਮੁਖ ਮੰਦਾ॥ ਚੋਰੁ ਯਾਰੁ ਜੂਆਰਿ ਹਉ ਪਰ ਘਰਿ ਜੋਹੰਦਾ॥ I am a criminal, a sinner, evil and apostate. I am a thief, adulterer; gambler who always keeps his eye upon other's household. Vaar Bhai Gurdas ji 36, Pauri 21   2. I'm pleased to be part of a Panth which encouraged people to join it for the love of Guru Nanak ji, instead of being forced to (by various means) like the Abrahamics.   3. If you're in the company of non-practicing Sikhs, they'll generally let you do your thing (Nitnem, Reharas, whatever). It's not like you're asking "Hey, mind if I do Namaz?" Or "I'm fasting for Ramadan". You're part of the same religion, though they're not strict about it. 4. What the Mullahs do is, first they get you into their religion. Then they indoctrinate the kids into Jihad. Why can't we do the same (indoctrinate into Bhagti, not Jihad)?
    • But that's not what he was saying. He was saying that certain among us not only compromised with maryada while working for the new masters, but also -during off hours,  -after retiring from service, and -worst of all, passed on those compromises to following generations as a kind of baseline   The only true baseline for maryada is the maryada of Guru Gobind Singh ji.
