Recommended Posts

Maybe we should show our appreciation by taking on more khoj of bani, santhiya, memorisation of more Gurbani, learn to sing a shabad you know stuff we should be doing and sharing with others and encouraging them too.

Thoughts and prayers are with him and his family, especially his children at this time,he has done more to spread knowledge about Sikhi than anyone i know and bought me back onto the towards path of Sikhi, if you read his statement it show's nothing but humility and acceptance, something we could all learn from.

A friend of mine put this up on facebook yesterday evening after hearing the news, sum's it all up.

"When death becomes more than just an intellectual thought, life becomes real.
Value each & every breath as they are more valuable than the material riches that make up the world we live in."

Very sad news, we need more people like bhai jagraj singh spreading the message of Sikhi locally and globally. May waheguru give him and his Basics of Sikhi team and family the blessings to carry on the great work and parchar they have done so far.

I'll try to add the Jaap events as I see them. Please add your town/city's also, if there is one being held for Bhai Jagraj Singh. 

🙏🏻 Waheguru

I feel sad. This guy was one of the most inspirational, real talking brothers to emerge in this day and age. But I'm content that whatever happens his soul is highly blessed for his kamai. 

Same here and many others too, feels like know him so well but never ever met him, he is an amazing soul, that shared his knowledge with us all at our level, no matter what level somebody maybe, he got through to the masses. 

His nirmata (humbleness) and sabar (patience) has helped many people, whether young or old, different communities. The qualities God blessed him with shone through him and those that met him were lucky to experience a human being in this day and age teaching us about Waheguru.

The one of the other sad thing's about this is our community badly needs people like him. The fact that he is one of very few who are intelligent, educated, British army trained, inspiring and wise western born sikh parchariks and spokeman's we have had for a generation. Who else is going to step up to the plate and do what jagraj has been able to do? He is a brand and basics of Sikhi doesn't have other people yet able to fill his shoes.

If you see other Sikh public figures not born in the west with broken English they are a complete embarrassment by putting themselves forward to catch the limelight but not being about to articulate what western/British Sikhs are saying to the wider public. And other British born Sikhs just don't have the media savy skills to navigate how to engage the audience and not fall into the anti-sikh traps of the racist mainstream.

We Sikhs (or should I say it's human nature) have a habit of creating a saviour or of pedastalising a person and almost creating a cult following.

Jagraj Singh did what everyone else has the ability to do as well and that is connect with the One. If you seen any of his videos, it's one of the things he iterates and re-iterates.

If you read Gurbani or read a hukamnama, Guru ji talks of many things but ultimately everything goes back to the source through naam. Guru ji talks in great depth about a lot of things but the ultimately the message is a very simple one.

We all have that jot within us. Jagraj Singh does not want you to follow him, all he really wants is for YOU TO TAP INTO YOUR POTENTIAL TO CONNECT WITH THE ONE THROUGH NAAM. (Sorry for the caps lock but I had to emphasise that point)

If people don't get that then they are missing the wood for the trees.

    • If you were smart enough to look at the timeline of my original post you would see it went up before you slandered Gursikhs on the other thread.  You were slandering on this thread.   @MOD @ADMIN  let him say what he wants openly here about me.  He acts like a tough guy but I know it's an act.  Here is your chance tough guy.  Let's hear it
    • There's many meanings to this. One which I find incredibly beautiful (from the point of view of Guru Arjan Dev Ji) is Aad guray nameh - I bow down to the 1st Guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji Jugaad guray nameh - I bow down to the 2nd Guru Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji Sat guray nameh - I bow down to my Satguru Sri Guru Ram Das Ji Sri gur dayvay nameh - I bow down to their (my satguru's) Guru Sri Guru Amar Das Ji In this way Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji pays their respect to the 4 Guru Sahibs before them and seeks blessing to begin path of Sukhmani Sahib. This is an implied arth based on the perspective of 5th Guru. A more literal arth could be: Aad guray nameh - I pay respect to guru who has been guru since the start of time (aad meaning start) Jugaad guray nameh - I pay respect to guru who was present at the start of the jugs when creation began. Jugaad sach Sat guray nameh - I pay respect to the true guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji  Sri gur dayvay nameh - I pay respect to the guru who is true now and will always be the true guru Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji
    • Thank you for posting these videos. This is exactly how they live in below freezing temperatures, without getting sick with hypothermia. They showed us few breathing techniques to keep warm when we stayed with them in Rishikesh in the 70s which worked well. We promised them we’ll revisit them again,  but unfortunately,  it never happened! Once we came back home to HK, we realised how different their world was in comparison to ours’. It was almost like we lived on two different planets! The saadhoos can stay alive up to six months or more without food and water, for they have mastered the techniques to do away with all material comforts. Amazing souls. 
    • ^ This is what we need more of. People must have these magazines and articles in their house somewhere. We need to digitize them, or they'll be lost forever.
    • Is this harnek neki the same as harnek new Zealand? He has a YouTube channel and he talks crap about people like sant ji and surinder Singh sodhi etc ?
