Question About Khanda Sahib


Recommended Posts

Guest singh

SSA Ji.

It seems to be a weird question but I am still looking for some answers:

How should we treat Khanda Sahib? Just like utmost respect like Guru Granth Sahib Ji?

Some people wear it, some hang in their cars, some install it as a sticker on their cars.

I have installed it in my car in the rear view mirror. When it comes to cleaning it, I usually clean it with clean cloth or tissue paper.

Is it a disrespect if I clean it with regular cloth that I use to clean the car?

On the other hand when I look at people who paste Khanda Sahib as a sticker on their car and when they wash it, it is obvious that people will use the same cloth to clean the car to clean the sticker of Khanda Sahib.

Should we always use clean hands to hold Khanda Sahib?

What is the significance? Please someone shed some light on this topic

Singh ji, most people i have seen here usually replies to posts that are important like gf bf love sexuality etc,

The respect for khanda and other similar topics are considered unimportant by majority of members.

They dnt even like to reply here.

Some members who are always present here, they will reply in seconds to these IMPORTANT topics but not for ur type of topics, better to ask any gurmukh inperson

Thanks veer

What i have noticed here in two years, your r rite mr.kira.

Everyone like to reply to posts u said above.

The sexuality related posts have maximum number of replies. Even the mods and admins allow such posts on sikhsangat. Open mind and open discussions on sexual problems are okay for the development of sikh sangat but but admins had allowed many posts that are just stupid like how to propose a girl, how to make my gf ready for marriage etc, nd the prominent members of this forum who always reply immediately, simran345, jackfsingh, singh12345777, sikhni777 , guptkaur etc they post long essays for these replies but they never ask admins to stop posting such non sense on this forum. Infact there are couple of members i used to read their posts regarding this issue, but most of them has been banned or blocked by this forum admins or mods.

Thats not sikh sangat really, if someone post or comment opposite to ur thinking u block them, thats not right.

If someone use vulgar words, then ok block them but why u block people who snt post vulgar or wrong words?

This is totally correct, some of us in the Sangat here just don't have an answer for the Khanda issue.

I know people respect their gutkas from where they do path. They respect SGGS and are very particular when doing seva. However khanda is just a symbol. It should not be disrespected however. I don't have a khanda around me anywhere. The khanda has a different meaning for each individual. Most see it just as a symbol of sikhism. I doubt it if people wear it on their bodies apart from khanda chains, in which case it cannot be disrespected any way. The nihaangs and some others clip it on their dastaar.

There are some rules on how to respect a Gutka, and second the Gurbani is something that can allow people to be closer to the Guru. You can see Khandas everywhere and anywhere, (some folks even cut their Kesh, with a Khanda design).

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

There is no official guideline on how to treat a Khanda. Given that it is a Sikh insignia and present on Nishan Sahibs, it would advisable to follow good common respectful practice - don't throw it on the ground, step on it and keep it in a respectful place, much as any person would their nation's flag or symbolism.

The Khanda was made by the SGPC and was not around during the Guru's time.

In my humble opinion, I would respect it as an agreed symbol of Sikhi and as a Shastar (as it does consist of weapons) but not pay so much important.

Better to pay importance to SGGSJ and things which will bring you closer to God.

I agree with u guptmod ji

Admins here are live examples of disgrace of some of our sikh bros , sad but true

They are in illusion that they are not only controlling the sikh sangats posts here on forum but also the whole nature and all othe spontaneously occurring sophisticated processes are being controlled by them.

And some members that you mentioned above seems to be from same akj who love to shake head while chanting the name of God

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, Daas has previously argued with the Admin, though if it wasn't about Jhatka or Raagmala, Daas just let the issue go. Also the Admin has locked topics every time Daas actually said something halfway descent about certain issues, (Daas is being totally serious, anytime I talk about some descent they lock the whole topic). Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

I agree with u guptmod ji

Daas totally agrees.

I've never posted on a thread on how to make a gf ready for marriage or sex. If you don't like what I write then nobody tells you to read it.

Why don't you make an account and reply to threads yourself, maybe this forum is lacking you and your input. Even the other members you have quoted don't deserve to be quoted like that, funny how you wrote my name first when I don't even post on the open minded topics as you've mentioned. Either you only like reading one type of topic or you got spare time to criticise the others mentioned for writing what I think they don't write.

But I will take on board what you have said and if it's been a problem before you should have pointed it out. Why wait for somebody else to say what you feel, do what you think is right and speak up. And for the record, nobody here is a professional writer, people only input what they can, but that doesn't mean you can't either. What's wrong with you posting on topics you have mentioned? Sanu teka lea a Ik Ik topic te post kariye? You got the choice too, if you want change then make it happen, we are the same as you, just normal people who input on here.

Make an account and offer your advise if ours isn't to your liking.

The reason that I don't reply to every single thread is probably plain and simple, I don't have the knowledge to. Jini Rab ne mat diti a, una hi a meri himmat ch. I'm not a scholar, I only input what I'm able to and if that's doesn't suit you, then it's not my problem but yours, as I don't know myself. Simple.

If the person asking doesn't know, what makes you think the names you've mentioned have the answers to everything? We are same as you. Instead of belittling them, you should help and answer the threads yourself if you have more knowledge, as they take out time to help others and they are not vehle either, me, and them have families, we have lives of our own. We do not have to jump to every command of people like you. You can't force somebody to write on a topic that they don't want to. Join the forum and stop moaning, do something yourself if you don't like it.

Also for your information, I have asked admin/mods few times for some topics to be deleted, if you haven't seen it on the main, doesn't mean it's not requested. We have messenger, so you should not judge people on what you do not see.
