Missionary v.s. Puratan Sikh Sampardhas


Recommended Posts

WJKK WJKF,

The number of "Professors"/"Teachers" is increasing, the gurdwaras, especially in Asia, are filled with such parchariks/granthis. They often claim to follow the maryada of Sri Akal Thakat Sahib, which was never approved by the panth and till date, approval is pending. The problem is, they hold "gurmat" classes, do "katha" and constantly touch on controversial topics. Their views, when compared to puratan sampardhas like Damdami Taksal, Budha Dal, Bidhi Chand Dal, are quite different. They do not believe in Simran, Amrit vela, puratan maryada of JOT, Jaal, they twist bani to meet their propaganda and ignore the existence of Sant Mahapurkhs. They also do preach reading and understanding bani ON ONE'S OWN and they have no practical experience of bani and bana. They do not do katha on gurbani, except the very literal meanings and somehow I believe it is stupidity to not be able to explain bani to others and continuous "benti" to sangat to read on their own, when in-depth katha is done by mahapurkhs/gianis from dals and taksal. 

They shame Taksal and Dals fore being influenced by the politics when indeed majority of the students are taught the puratan maryada, santhya and history.

They do have great following, and the question is why?

Is it because 21st century "Sikhs" they are too smart? Or are they looking for things that meet the worldly logic only? others?

First learn then practice later teach.

Below is a Shabad for preaching class to contemplate

http://beta.igurbani.com/shabad/3959?verseId=47375

 
Secondly having humans as role models will lower ones status -
 

ਗੁਰ ਹਰਿ ਬਿਨੁ ਕੋ ਨ ਬ੍ਰਿਥਾ ਦੁਖੁ ਕਾਟੈ ॥

Gur Har Bin Ko N Brithhaa Dhukh Kaattai ||

गुर हरि बिनु को न ब्रिथा दुखु काटै ॥

No one, except the Guru-Lord, can dispel our pain and sorrow.

3 ਗੂਜਰੀ (ਮ: ੫) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੪੯੭ ਪੰ. ੩ 
Raag Goojree Guru Arjan Dev 

ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਤਜਿ ਅਵਰ ਸੇਵਕੁ ਜੇ ਹੋਈ ਹੈ ਤਿਤੁ ਮਾਨੁ ਮਹਤੁ ਜਸੁ ਘਾਟੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥

Prabh Thaj Avar Saevak Jae Hoee Hai Thith Maan Mehath Jas Ghaattai ||1|| Rehaao ||

प्रभु तजि अवर सेवकु जे होई है तितु मानु महतु जसु घाटै ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥

Forsaking God, and serving another, one's honor, dignity and reputation are decreased. ||1||Pause||

Maskeen Ji made a really good point about these so called Prachariks in general. He said people listen to 1 or 2 CDs and get on stage to do Katha, none of them have bothered learning all the ancient texts. That being said the main problem is their influence is huge because there is no language barrier for them to overcome. imo many of the Puratan Jathas such as DDT should start doing as much Katha in english as possible. During the old ages before anyone could even start on Gurbani they had to learn as many texts as possible, some were religious and some were purely political/worldly. imo, the same should be done now. You see it in so called Preachers such as Zakir Naik, utter morons who have no understanding of science and history let alone other peoples faiths. The sad reality is that these missionaries are falling into the same trap.

Same here, they sometimes say some things that don't make sense.. & for a bunch of people to start doing parchar to totally different faith people who know nothing about Sikhi is dangerous.. because what if their parchar was wrong? Then what? Those people will have an odd view about Sikhism & Sri Guru Sahib ji then. I especially think that debating with those mo5lems on that channel was not worth it.. As if the mo5lems took any of it seriously, the mo5lems were most likely there to try to convert people to their religion. &It is such a big remark to call your channel 'Basics of Sikhi', I mean, how sure can they be that they are confident enough to say that their channel is totally the basics of sikhi.? It is such a big claim. I'm not saying that they always say wrong things, it's just that sometimes they do but then they still call themselves the basics of sikhi.. bull chuk maaf kijye Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh

Can you give an example of what they've said wrong?

They believe that Amritdharis can eat Jhooth from Non-Amritdharis if that's their family.

They believe only one partner needs to be Amritdhari, when nearly all Puratan Jathas believe both spouses need to be Amritdhari, (with the exception of Nihangs, who don't believe woman should be given Amrit)

The idea that Non-Sikhs can merge with Vaheguru, when Gurbani directly contradicts such ideas. Also he completely ignores the idea of Sikhs being the best when even Bhai Gurdas, Bhai Nand Lal, and all Mahapurukhs said the same thing. When we lose our idea of Sikhs being the best we will turn out as a weaker communitty.

There's more stuff, but generally for all his Seva, this is as far as I'll go. 

Basically BasicsOfSikhi is a wonderful start, but it is just that a start, we need to be an independent minded people. I will admit, he's a good inspiration and does have the push to get people to start on this path, but it is only a push and we must take everything with a grain of salt.

and that is why they should just keep the name basics of sikhi instead of Advanced sikhi :)

You are a millions times worse than basics of sikhi.  You flat out deny Gurbani and stick to manmat.  After your manmat is called out, you cry and whine.

    • Sikh Reddit is pathetic, it’s run by a fat POS.  It’s natural to want a virgin if you’re a virgin yourself, so I don’t blame u. Especially when you’re religious and following Sikhi, it just feels so wrong to be w/ someone who is not a virgin.  As a woman it’s easy to find a virgin man b/c any man who tells you he is a virgin is 99% not lying lol. But I understand it is harder to find a virgin woman since ur a man. Since ur in the west it’s gonna be 100% even harder, as only 4% of woman are virgins at marriage in the west. Nowadays there are more virgin men than women. A lot of women will also lie to get a good quality partner, they know deep down men want a clean partner so they’ll lie.  Since ur in the west, u have to be very careful. Honestly my best advice to anyone reading this is u just gotta have common sense. Many men don’t, they’re pretty dumb and easily fall in love based on looks and lies. U don’t wanna be a dumb ***** who’s w/ a woman that’s been with the entire city, nor do u wanna be the dude paying this chick alimony, etc (women w/more sexual partners tend to correlate w/higher risk for divorce). U gotta sus out how she is in her day to day life. Dig into her background. Does she often go out, does she have many male friends, are there any stories about her past. If she has lots of luxury items and what not and is always going out, does she work hard for them by working jobs. If she’s velli and always doing that, that’s sus. A lot of women partake in much more expensive things than men and have lots of things b/c they have some simp or beta orbiter paying them, usually in exchange for some lewd things. The number of women I’ve met thruout the years doing this was insane, like even the ones I thought were angelic ones. furthermore does she have a history of smoking or doing drugs, think about how old is she? The older she is the less likely she is to be a virgin. Did she go to a uni, what kind of uni did she go to and what did she study? Women acquire their most number of sexual partners during uni. Is she a woman that doesn’t like the fact ur a virgin or isn’t as into u because of that? Red flag because a virgin woman would want a virgin man so she can feel more comfortable. There’s lots of memes that women prefer “Chad men with high body count” b/c it shows that they’re experienced but nah, that’s just b/c the majority of women are not virgins lol. Does she spend all her day on social medias like Instagram or Snapchat or Twitter or whatever? Know that there are many men in her DMs most likely. a woman should be willing to delete her socials for u if she truly loves u. The best person for a relationship is a person with no socials. Another tip is how does she speak and dress around family or outside?. Is her family conservative or liberal? Whenever she does goes out is she usually with her family? i can write more questions for u to think about but honestly it’ll be depressing for u. The true reality is you are most likely NOT going to end up with a virgin (the only way to know is if she bleeds ur first night, even the most repulsive and vile of Sikh/Punjabi women don’t pursue hymenoplasties such as Middle eastern women do, so u should be good). You are most likely NOT going to be with a woman who is obsessed with u and loves u deeply, is willing to do anything for u, many men simp for and obey their women these days and not the other way around. You are likely NOT going to end up in a happy marriage, over 6/10 married couples hate their marriage statistically.  U just gotta keep your hopes up. If u do end up getting married to a witch, there’s not much u can do. Think of ur children and care for them deeply. Be a good man, etc. 
    • I’ve seen lots of alt communities or whatever inquire “which religion is the most tolerant, which is the most accepting, which will accept me as a LGBTQASHFKRLIV148959+, which will accept me because I’ve sinned, which will accept me bc I’m literally a pedo,  which will accept bc I’m a furry” literally stupid things like this and guess what everyone usually replies with. ”Sikhi” the whole modernization thing is a joke, just stick to ur roots. Stop promoting the religion as some kind of charity free for all accepting of all sins and degenerates type religion. Just filth will join the religion then, it’s already happening. The leaders and youth of Sikhi are such a massive joke.
    • Lol this is so common. This is the average wedding. Plus nowadays auntiyaan and young girls are dressing half naked in lenghas and saris and stuff or literally sometimes even a western dress. Men freely dance with women. Plus they hire some naked belly dancer or hire some Bhangra team dancing like monkeys at ur wedding. It’s awful. I assume it’s Punjabi culture. Let’s not mention all the men getting drunk and trying to hit on the women at the weddings.  So many young folks skip the gurudwara wedding too because it’s boring and they can’t get lit even though that’s the main part of the wedding & most important. Amritdhari men and women are less likely to engage in such activities tho, I don’t see them doing this, when they get invited to such weddings they sit in the corner and refuse to engage or dance and such.  I’m marrying into a non Punjabi family and me and my partner went to a Sikh wedding recently because he’s never experienced one and he was shocked and said he thought Sikhs were way more conservative.
    • I hate the way people throw money. It's usually a manmukh tradition to show how wealthy you are and you can just throw rupees around. It's nothing more than showing off.
    • While drinking alcohol is never a good thing, hearsay about such things may be unreliable. The fact is, at wedding receptions, everybody goes: children, drinkers, and non-drinkers. Obviously, there are both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks available. Are the aunties absolutely sure the uncles were drinking whiskey?
