A Woman As A Panch Pyara?

Brother, I disagree with that. The original panj pyare were all male, yes! But women who take amrit are just as equal. Just because in 1699, no woman stood up doesn't mean they can't represent the khalsa equally? It's not been stated by the guru, has it?

Santji Baba Jarnail Singh has given the explaination. Why question or request ordinary sangat for further elaboration when a Mahapurukh has already spoken. How far do you take equality? Men and women have different roles in society and in garisti jeevan. This is just one of those differentiations.

When we are born, we may physically take a gender, however our atma is genderless. When we die our atma is separated from our body and if we have walked the path set by the guru, we will gain mukhti, what emphasis is their on the gender you were when you attained human life? Kaam, krodh, mo, lobh and hankarh do not descriminate between genders, the fight to eliminate these emotions for both male and female are equal in struggle. Why is their an emphasis that the panj pyare were all male? When Shiri Guru Gobind Singh Ji asked for a head, I don't think any emphasis was made that they were all male, rather that the panj pyare which stood, their souls sort for mukhti. As Shiri kalgidhar said, it isn't the sikh what is pyare, it is the rehat. The rehat to which a persons soul abides by. The shakti of the guru lives in the khalsa, that does not mean only men because originally it was 5 men what answered to the call of a head, it means simply the khalsa, one whom receives the holy nectar and does not break from its bond, irregards to the gender of that vessel the sikh has attained amrit.

We are only as ordinary as we strive to be. The guru gave gur gaddi to Shiri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and gave Guru Panth to the khalsa. We should step up to the task what the guru set for us, how other sikhs past and present have. We are not limited, we are limitless! We to can be sant siphae, so can a woman as my mother Mai bhago did. Whole role of gristi should she have taken at that time? Continue to make the rotia?

From what Sant ji explained:

There is no inequality in Sikhi. If women want to do seva, there are lots of other ways to do that - They shouldn't be stopped from doing.

For e.g. Women can do Kirtan

can do seva of reading Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

can do prasad seva.

and the list goes on..

Apart from Panj Payre seva they can do whatever seva they like. The argument as to why is already is explained and has been going on even after 1699 to 1708 (Guru Ji aboded to Sachkhand) when during Guru Gobind Singh ji time there were many Chardilkla women like Mai Bhaag Kaur (accompanied SatGuru ji in Nanded and lived after 1708...) etc..

There were NO women in Panj Pyare in 18th century or the 19th...

But has it been stated anywhere where a khalsa woman cannot doin amrit sanchar, or does it just state panj pyare? Again emphasis on the rehat being pyaree, not the sikh

Why specifically want to do Panj duty. Can you explain what is meant by seva ?

Seva is a route to cleansing the genderless soul of its previous Karam through service of other people and honest causes.

Mata sahib kaur added the sweet pataashe to the holy nectar while Shiri Guru Gobind Singh stirred the shakti of Akal Purakh within the nectar creating the stainless khalsa, my mother also drank the nectar and became khalsa. What is the difference of gender in khalsa, maybe we should of explained that to dhan dhan Mai bhago, that as sikhs,men and women have their set roles as per gristi, so carry on making the rotia? I don't think so sikhi, As rightly said, Mai bhago stayed in the company of Shiri kalgidhar mahraj, as khalsa!

    • Lol it's just an old harmless tradition  no harm in it.  haldi is beneficial actually   people in india have been using it for 1000 os yes. Goreh have only started using it now  As for the announcements that's just stupid

      To the brave Singh's and Kaur's, My first question is that i've gone to many weddings and never understood the relevance of a "maya vatna" or "mayan". They sing songs and apply haldi or whatever to the skin but isn't maya a sin, so <banned word filter activated> are they doing? My second question is often I hear at akand paaths and weddings that this person did "dus pound haajare kithee" forgive my spelling. But whats the point in announcing how much someone has donated? Is it a competition? are they trying to buy their way into such kand? I just don't understand Thanks in advance.

      My goodness! It was only a joke. I doubt they actually had relations - everyone was watching. Why not blame the girl in the first place for opening the window to her husband?  Let's address the real spectacle of the doli- the fact that the woman is treated like an object owned by men to be transferred from her father to her husband. All the ritual crying when modern technology and transport means she'll see her parents all the time after marriage. Not to mention the superstitious rice throwing.  What does gurbani say about that?

      Nice to see Sikhs get good press for once. And for farming too!
