like I said, yes both are optimal
but vedic literature should be more prioritized and be the prerequisite (as was the case with guru nanak dev ji or other guru sahiban who first learned sanskrit before moving on to a madrasa) (you don't run before you learn to crawl)
farsi has always been considered foreign language and as beautiful it may be, it still isn't as much of a reference in gurbani as vedas/puranas/devtas/nirgun sargun/yugas/karma/reincarnation/the primal sound/kalki avtar (I forgot what nihangs called it) especially in sggs
mind you bachitar natak, and of course tons of more dasam bani still draws stories of charitar pakhyan from puranas, and guru sahib did a whole katha on the avatars of vishnu
and like I have said before, in this day than never, we aren't as aware of the historical references behind much of gurbani as much as our predecessors so often many of us confuse dasam bani to be an infusion of vedic mat so we need to be a bit more literate of vedic mat to be able to differentiate between that and sikhi when reading bani
I don't want to belittle any specific school of thought, but abrahamic ideology is also much more linear and simple compared to sikhi so trying to understand sikhi through western lenses is a much more difficult task compared to a hindu looking at sikhi and recognizing many gurmat principles such as meditation, connecting with paarbrahm, langar, karma (although westerners also believe in deeds being a large part of judgement in parlok) etc.
Guru Sahib quoted ferdowsi poet in Zafarnama.
Guru Sahib got kimia saadat Persian Granth into gurmukhi from peer budhu Shah.
So Guru Sahib did not just read Persian Granths to learn Persian language as it was the worldly/political language.
Guru Sahib also appreciated many thoughts in spiritual Farsi literature.
So taksali students shud read farsi spiritual literature alongside vedic literature.
I don't dispute that either, but I think we should prioritize vedic literature because of how much gurbani references it compared to farsi/abrahamic culture
I think persian is majestic for some reason lol, seems a bit royal so I get why it is so attractive
was sgpc right to ban shastar puja?
why is nihang history so confusing, on one hand they were on verge of extinction during british raj and had emigrated to sri hazur sahib, during the other they were in control of gurudwaras like sri akal thakt from where they were kicked out of by sgpc and were involved in various morchas for sikh's rights while some say they were preventing dalits from entering sri darbar sahib when they came back from war
can I get more info on akali baba sahib singh ji
