divali or bandi chor divas


Recommended Posts

Should sikhs celebrate divaali (rechirstened as bandi chor divas)when there is no historical proof of Guru Hargobind jee acutally coming home on a day that coincides with hindu Diwaali ?
Share your views - in my view if we have a good naam simran practise then everyday is diwali

Bandhi chorr diwas logically falls AFTER diwaali as historically Guru Har Gobind ji was released on Diwaali but sangat only knew celebrated when he arrived home from Gwalior. So this trying of Hindu mat people to put them together is not correct. Please refer to previous posts by sangat for any in depth discussion

This has been discussed so many times before, I think you should search for older posts here if you are curious to know.

Having a new discussion would not hurt.  After all this is a discussion forum.

I don't know if they land on the same day, but many Sikhs will benefit from coming to the Gurdwara on the day Hindus celebrate divaali.  Many people have been given the wrong teaching and a lot of Sikhs have no problem going to the mandir and following Hindu practices on divaali.  More education by Gurdwaras and Sikhs in general need to provide the correct teachings of how divaali came about, what it was, and what it has turned into.

agreed that the correct place to be for a sikh is in Satguru ji's charan on Deepavali raat othewise they are bound to do all kinds of crazy hindu customs to entice Laxmi/Maya . They should really focus on asking for real treasure of Naam and gain gian of Gurbani. The other way to commerate is to support our sikh brothers and sisters suffering in jails or waiting for their partners .

It would help if Bandi Chor Diwas was celebrated on the actual day that Guru Hargobind jee left the prison rather than follow the Hindu lunar cycle of where on one year it is it's in October and the next year it's in November.

There is no Hindu lunar cycle.  There is a lunar cycle but it's not Hindu or any religion.  It's like saying whoever was able to figure out the world was round has ownership of this idea and now the world is atheist.

Bikrami calendar works better.  Plus if you want to go by perwal calendar, disguised as the nanakshahi calendar.  Then better be prepared to accept it as a Christian calendar because purwal calendar is created from the Christian calendar majority of the world used today.

purewal is faulty as it uses start date as 1999 yeah really accurate ...not.

Bikrami was good enough to be mentioned in Gurbani and itihaas so it should be stuck to.

    • I've been seeing this more and more recently,  in middle of Paath or Shabad an advert will just pop up throwing me off completely when concentrating. I always thought its very bad to monetize Gurbani,  but then again it could be YouTube themselves. But either way wish it stops, I don't mind it on Katha's but really annoying in Paath and Shabad. Anyways rant over lol
    • Lol. Way to be late to the party there Ravi. 
    • The liberal mafia attacking Amaan Baali because he committed the ultimate sin of standing up for the Sikh community in Kashmir and told the truth of the grooming of Sikh girls. Let's look at the background of these liberals who are now attacking Amaan. Monica Gill - failed model latched on to the Farmers agitation in order to gain more exposure and credibility. On the grooming of the Sikh girls in Kashmir she was solidly on the side of the paedophiles. She promoted the Quint narrative that the Sikh girl was an adult even when the paedophile admitted that he had started to target her when she was 12/13. Her sister apparently 'researched' the grooming of Sikh girls in Kashmir and found 'no evidence'!  Ravi Singh KA - we all know about him and his liberal agenda and his main focus on using the Panth's money to help our enemies and gain him a Nobel prize.  This Angadh Singh Khalsa guy - another liberal mupp.et using the Sikh identity to further the cause of the Jihadis. here's an article about him- his main claim to fame- being a dhimmi and helping in the Kashmiri plan to turn Kashmir into an Islamic state like Afghanistan. What could possibly go wrong for Kashmiri Sikhs when that happens? His views on the grooming of Sikhs - he is 'nuanced'! How Kashmir's Fraught Political Journey Led a Young Sikh Man Into Activism (thewire.in) You can judge the value of a person to the Panth by knowing the background of the people  who are attacking him.       
    • Is that Surrinder Shinda in the video?
