Khalsa Raj Vs Khalistan- Good Article

Recommended Posts

The article has nothing against Khalistan. The author does seem ignorant of the concept of Khalsa Rule and out of reality about the beginning of Khalsa Rule.

I don't think the author is trying to define Khalsa raaj in a political sense, but more from a spiritual perspective.

Anyone who took history class during his college days would agree that having your own country would solve tons of problems. Politics is important in our dharam - Miri piri concept.

Question one should ask: are you better off spirituality while being under undemocratic ruthless rulers? Or are you well off spirituality if your country charters are based on truly democratic rights?

Khalsa raj and Khalistan is same and there is no difference between these two words.

Do what ever u want until Sikhs don't get their own country sikhi is not going to flourish in this world.

That's debatable, look at Buddhism they don't have country look how well they have flourished both in East and West.

Buddhist souch and mat has not flourished. What you're referring to is pop culture where people say they're something to look cool.

Buddhism has not flourished. It is actually declining when we talk about REAL Buddhism (including Buddhist way of life), the same way real hardcore Rehitvaan/Abhiaasi/Sarblohi Nihang Singhs are declining.

It is all just hippy-type trends. Similar to 3HO yoga, etc.

It is just some 'Buddha' 'quotes' that are floating around on the internet on twitter/instagram/facebook...but that's about it.

Exactly

Sure there is the usual Buddha commercialization in west , but there are actually real Buddhist practitioners just like there are actual Sikh practitioners. The reason there is decline of dharmis is because of kalyug and maya influence not because one does not have piece of land that was point I was trying to make that's all.

1)"I'm buddhist"

2)"Oh really, what do you believe in then?????????"

1)"lol xD?"

Belgian friend frim Belgium and I had this discussion a while back. He always does this whenever someone says they're Buddhist and they don't even know what the basic tenets are. Same thing when they say they're Christian lol.

Very interesting post veer regarding miri piri. I would like to mention according to my research i don't think piri means raw politics, politics in modern world have very negative connotations. Miri is spiritual we all know, piri would be soldier/temporary to uphold/protect miri - dharma-spiritual sikhi.

Follow up question would be how much politics is needed in soldier/temporal(piri) to uphold dharma (miri-spiritual) ? I would assume hardly any in this day and age - unless off course one lives in monarch type country where one have to make concessions/sacrifice to live off ..!!

Answer to your question - most of us who live abroad in western countries cannot claim we are being under undemocratic ruthless rulers so khalsa in many ways already have spiritual and full democratic rights in abroad.

Veerji, Buddhist living Korea and other countries can't be compared with Sikhs living in India. India is worst in human rights. Despite Buddh dharam being founded in India got no followers in India and one wonder why.

Also why their most respected spiritual leader Dalai Lama is fighting for Tibet?

Not really, I can't go out in public with Kirpan. I cannot join armed forces (I got rejected twice). I cannot serve in my local fire department and I cannot join local police force, I can't go to work on construction site without hard hat and list goes on and on. Yes we are free from ruthless rulers but majority of balaiti Sikhs have limited freedom and most of us don't realize that.

    • Ardaas 1 and  rabb da radio 1  are really gd movies  both on youtube     about social issues     qissa, tale of a lonely ghost is one of the strangest movies iv ever seen! surprised that some punjabi made it, its about a man who wants a son but his wife gives birth to a girl but he doesnt wanna accept it so he raises it as a boy! he even marrys her of to a girl!  strange movie     i dont really watch hindi movies but i liked padmavaati and haider.  i think its just show off tbh       
    • Oh, so they didn't even get that right. I find a lot of Indian 'culture' is super camp. Especially the movies these days (judging by the few seconds I have seen of them before I turn my head away in disgust). I tried watching some modern Panjabi film with social issues recently (called Gelo) but straight away they assaulted my senses with some couple prancing about in some musical number, so I had to switch it off. It takes like a year for me (at least!) to get over these types of things before I can summon the strength to try and watch it again.  I hear you!  It often looks like the people with these lavish, ostentatious events are seriously trying to cover up for some deeply rooted inadequacies with all the fancy, overblown events? 
    • its very camp and over the top. everything is gay about it the belly dancers arent all that, skinny and plain lol  even if i had that much money i would still have just a simple anand karaj and thats it. i dont like being center of attention

      Hello. I'm a white guy, born and raised in the USA, baptized and confirmed Catholic, however I never really could accept what Catholicism/Christianity teaches. I always felt like I was reaching for something "out there" to understand know God. I've read about/researched other faiths, such as Wicca, Islam, Hinduism, other secs of Christianity, and for a while I studied Buddhism. But again, these always left me wanting more. They spoke about God, "The Divine", creator, etc, but they always spoke of different ways to identify with God, spoke about all these rituals to get closer to God, but those things feel inadequate to me. Reading the Guru Granth Sahib pulls something deep inside of me. At least, for me, it explains God in terms that I'm able to understand and connect with, and Sikhism, from what I've read, shares the same moral/ethical/world views that I do. My only worry/concern is appropriating the culture of Sikhs. While I very much admire the ten Gurus and the immense struggle they and the people who lived during there time (and of course the struggle that Sikhs, and black/brown people and other people of color, still go through today), I will never be able to identify with that struggle because of my racial position in life, which I accept, but does that mean I'm not able to follow the words of the Gurus? I'm a solitary person, so I don't think I would go to Gurdwara, and I don't think I would ever be baptized/ take the 5 K's. I enjoy being a lay person, appreciating what the Guru Granth Sahib says, and experiencing/knowing God. I just want to have a relationship with God, and I know that means more than just reading from the Guru Granth Sahib, and I'm hoping with time I'll be able to do more with my faith. I guess I'm posting this to get an idea if there's any white people on this forum who are Sikh, or if any black/brown or other people of color on here have had experiences with white people in the Gurdwara and if those experiences were satisfactory or cringe worthy?
    • Sounds like a gays man's wet dream?  I ain't watching it - f**k that. lol The only thing that sounded even remotely interesting in the above list was the belly dancers.
