Akhand Path at home - how to

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, need some help.

We are planning to akhand path done at our home. But this would be first time, so I don't know much about it. Not about the path, that would be taken care by pathis, but other preparations and requirements for taking care of langar and sangat. 

If somebody experienced can give suggestions, so we get everything ready beforehand. (Plz kindly keep it away from any kind of debate that this should be done or not....)

I really appreciate the help, anything that you think is part of this sewa.....

 

For example for langar, we need 

Bartan

Water & place accomodation to wash and dry them - glass, spoon , plates, etc

Big bartans to make daal sabjiyan

Other big bartans for dahi and etc,

Big bartan & cloths to keep parshadas warm.

Tissues or towel

Chimta, chakla,belna(+2) etc

tea - cups

Other drinks

vegetables for pakorhe and daal sabjia

Bhande langer bartaun lai

Cloth for sangat to sit on to eat langar

 

 

 

Rumala sahib for Guru saab

Bhog lwaun lai bartan 

Towel

 

Dariyan for sangat to sit

Degh ingrdients in stock - desi gheo etc

degh bartaun lai bhanda and cover, spoon etc

 

Enough space for sangat to take off their shoe

Penji I'm only writing what we did in regards to the list you have put in your post.

In the kitchen we had a table, where we put the food ingredients on and cutlery and smaller items mentioned on your first paragraph, rather than on the floor. 

Maybe a good idea to have some spare towels for Guruji, in case you need them. 

Shoes, we had sangat take off outside the house to a side that weren't in the way of when Guruji come through. 

Spare rumaals in case somebody doesn't bring theirs or for children. 

We focused more on the seva of Guruji, and made a simple langar with only minimum daal/sabji.  And suitable for those with allergies, e.g.: nut allergy. We felt it's more important to receive blessings of Guruji, than to emphasise on going OTT on things that won't be used up afterwards. 

Dont forget the toilet paper and toilet freshners, and towels and liquid soap in washrooms, as the granthis or ragis will be using them too, so sucham is important for seva of Guruji. 

If you wish you may have flowers in vases in front of Guruji or at the sides, but that's your own choice.  Can't think of anything else right now, but you seem to have it covered. And of course, no meat, alcohol or intoxicants in the house, as you will already know this, and no shoes. 

Try to spend as much time as you can in Guruji's company, aswell as encouraging sangat to listen to paat, is a big seva. Also thank Waheguru for giving you the chance to do the seva.

Thank you very much Simran ji....really great help.......I don't want to miss anything, so on spot I worry about stuff instead of doing sewa and listening to path. we have to make sure that we provide for all the needs of sangat, pathis and of course Guru saab.

If you remember anything else, please do share.

It is best to ask the Granthis from the Gurdwara that will be coming to your home, if there is anything you have missed out or they advise. They will have more knowledge and are normally helpful in guiding.  Ask them in advance, so if there is any preparation, you can get it organised in time. Don't worry, all will go well and enjoy Guruji's presence when they arrive. Normally elders know what to do, so communicate with them too.

      where did you read about Harrappa? from a book written by a "white man"  and who started the excavation of Harrappa?  "white man". he didn't try and destroy either. again you are including blacks?  why?  what about chinese, arabs, native americans etc?  why are you so fixated with blacks?  your whole view-point is a black one.   and where are the beautiful buildings in africa and jamaica?

      this is not true.  very famous/popular historians like Will and Ariel Durrant openly wrote about your first point.  most of you wouldn't even know about e.g. the concept of zero if it were not from their history/research. the ancient greeks were eager to learn and learnt form other cultures.  the modern european civilisation also did this.  it was no secret,  tolstoy acknowledged buddhism, schopenhauer acknowledged indian philosophy, goethe openly admired kalidasa.  they did not make any secret of this. yes europeans picked up greek, roman stuff in the renaissance and carried it through.  but they did not steal it.  francis bacon did not accept the learned greek methods, he thought out empiricism, which formed the basis of modern science.  the mathematics of euclid was rethought by russian mathematicians, which einstein used in the theory of relativity (not the euclidean gemoetry). learning from someone is not "stealing".  taking investigation further is not "stealing". what made the most wealthy parts of asia wealthy- china, india, japan- is that they were willing to learn from west.   e.g. japan didn't steal western civilisation after ww2.   again what is "what the white man has done".  and "our knowledge".  very petty way of thinking.  
    • I think this is due to the big improvement of regional cinema industries. I remember watching punjabi movies 10-15 years ago. They were very inferior to bollywood movies. In terms of story lines, special affects and general quality of production. This was understandable though as Punjabi cinema was just starting to come good and was not well fincanced .Many of the early punjabi films were just about some macho punjabi guy acting like a gangster with big mucha lol. I think those days are gone we are now seeing some good story lines and productions instead of those stereo typical films that were made in the 80's and 90's. Poeple can relate more to their own cultual language films more then the hindi type nonsence films. That glorify khans and muslims.Punjabi films can promote Sikhism and Punjabi language and do much good for punjab and punjabis by making good moral films to adsress alcohol and other issues affecting us. What we need is better actors, directors and producers to steer punjabi cinema to a bright future. Maybe it can become a global force? Tamil film industry is huge and they do good at promoting their language, culture and faith.

      wjkk wjkf Even the wife of Bhai saab Bhai Rai Jodh jee (a Muslim Rajput warrior who assisted Sixth Master in a battle) was a Sikh. Daas is not sure if he and his other family members became Sikhs or not. The grandsons (Bhai Lakhmir jee and Bhai Shamir jee) of Bhai Rai Jodh jee stayed loyal to the Gurughar and helped Sri Satguru jee (Tenth Master).   Bhul chuk maaf
    • i was just saying that they have created some of the most beautiful architecture and art work   even if the ideas were stolen.  Raphael, michaelangelo etc are some of the greatest artists ever
