Meat during 2nd Guru Ji???


Recommended Posts

Am curious, about a Sakhi I heard a few times at Gurdwara/ radios. When Guru Amar Das Ji went to visit Guru Angad Dev Ji for the first time, Baba Amar Ji thought "I will consider Guru Angad a true Guru if he knows am a vegetarian."

In langar they sat close to each other and the second Guru said, to the sevadar serving food "Bhai Ji. Serve Baba Amar Das vegetarian items only," then Baba Amar Das was convinced this IS the real deal, the true Guru Sahib.

QUESTION!!! Doesn't this mean meat was being served in langar up to Guru Angad Dev Ji's Guruship?

This sakhi doesn't really add-up if you ask me. Many great Gursikh writers did mention this exact incident, Bhai Vir Singh, Bhai Satbir Singh, and Mehima Prakash, (original). Why this story doesn't add-up is because when Amar Das, (Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Amar Das Ji), went to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji he would've been in extreme depression, due to having no Guru and he was desperate to find one, when you are trying to find the truth, meat is the least of your worries. So even if meat was served, there would've been no reason for Guru Sahib to have accommodated a person, (Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Amar Das Ji is beyond human, but for mortal explanations I had to use that word). Once when a Muslim came to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Hargobind Ji the established rule was no one was allowed to wear a face covering, so she had to take it off.

When Sikhs lived in jungles and deserts for decades in the 18th century until sikhs had Khalsa raj under Maharaja Ranjit Singh, you think they would've got bread butter , daal sabji ? 

Or what is more likely ? goat 

 

also non-vegetarian men tend to be stronger in musculature than vegetarian men who're mostly skinny.

I know what you are saying but genetics also seems to play a part. I know vegetarian types who are stocky (I don't know if it is because they ate meat previously?), and I've met plenty of meat eaters who are bean pole skinny, so...

This is true to an extent; however, someone who's carnivorous and doesn't bother to build muscle will be fat, and those who eat only vegetables or even vegans will not build muscle as fast, (but it's more effective than not working out and eating meat). That out of the way we should do whatever we can to preserve Jhatka wherever Sikhs are, or else this Anti-meat groups will be causing our own political collapse, when you compare it to Halal.

OMG! Halal's EVERYWHERE around here these days. I'd like to make a point clear, though I don't eat meat I would like to state, there is a big gap between halal and any normal meat... a BIG BIG gap. First evidence, ask a muslim if they'd prefer halal or jhatka. Second, during the make of halal process a Muslim will read kalmaa's over the animal... 

Final example, when we take out water from tap the world will call it water. But the SAME water if taken through Nitnem, mixed in patasi and khanda's mixed with it by panj pyaare in the presence of Maharaaj/ Sangat, SANGAT JI... NO SIKHS DARE TO CALL THAT WATER! If certain rituals have turned water into Amrit then certain rituals turn normal animal into halal. 

It'll be a contradiction to say one turns into something special (Amrit) and the other is "Still normal" (Meat) i.e. "It doesn't matter. Meat is meat" because we do not say "I had taken water and got baptised..." 

CORRECT ME IF AM WRONG but this is how I see it. Am saying both rituals (Sorry to use the word rituals it means rasma) both rituals are truth in my eyes. If our prayers can turn water into Amrit then Muslim's prayers hold the power to convert the animal into halal, otherwise would have been just a normal meat/ jhatka. 

Feel free to debate folks... (I'll mention all this in a new topic someday too).

I don't know what you are trying to debate Halal or Jhatka, or whether to argue whether meat is ok. But even the most basic Maryada prohibits Halal meat. Also Nihangs read Chandi Di Vaar when doing Jhatka, so is that Halal?

      VJKK VJKF I am planning on enrolling in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes soon. I have a few questions about how I could enrol while planning on taking Amrit. How would I keep rehit of the kakkars while practising my skills without hurting my opponent in the gym? Back when I was younger I enrolled in Taekwondo and they usually told me to take off my kara so I would not hurt my opponent while sparring. Currently my only solution is keeping my kara and a small kard or kirpan in my Kes, but this also raises another question. If I tied a normal or commando style patka, they are quite stable, but my kakkars would probably rip the cloth. I’m not going to wear a Dumala unless it it my last option because I would prefer something light weight while sparring, and during sports I have seen many Dumale fall off. What style should I wear that is stable enough for getting thrown around but not getting loose?   Thanks.
    • Make no mistake about it, we are at a cross road. Every other last community is shaking off their colonial baggage. You see this coming from everywhere. We need it even more than others because our lot were so deeply entwined in this previously.  And it brought us nothing but death and destruction and losses. 
    • Situation escalating, wonder how long there will be similar in USA, Canada and UK @Kaurr @5aaban https://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/why-proindia-supports-clashed-with-sikhs-at-melbournes-federation-square/news-story/9b842c48d5c3142733727dd370ef71dc Why Pro-India Supports clashed with Sikhs at Melbourne’s Federation Square An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas – but what started it? Rebecca Borg   @rebeccaaborg   4 min read February 1, 2023 - 9:22AM   Over the weekend, a Melbourne landmark became the centre of an ugly clash between two Indian ethnic groups in scenes rarely seen in Australia. Footage posted to social media captured the moment about 100 people broke out into a fight, using flags as weapons outside Federation Square on Sunday afternoon. The brawl, which broke out at about 4.30pm, occurred during a referendum event organised by US-based group Sikhs for Justice, who are campaigning to create a separate Sikh-majority state called Khalistan in India’s Punjab region. The state of Punjab was established in 1947 when the partition of India split the former Raj province of Punjab – which was previously under British rule – between India and Pakistan when the two countries gained their independence. But because Khalistan will take away land from parts of Punjab less than a century on from its emergence, pro-India activists are against the movement creating a rivalry between the two groups. An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas. Dozens of Sikhs were spotted lining up to vote in the early hours of Sunday. Picture: Twitter/@Lekha250913991 So when a group of pro-India supporters arrived at the Khalistan referendum in Melbourne on Sunday, a usually family-friendly Federation Square became the centre of a wild brawl which left two men injured and innocent bystanders scrambling for safety. As police investigations continue, many questions have been raised by concerned community members about the groups involved and what led to the confronting scenes. Here’s news.com.au’s deep dive into the situation.   Why were these ethnic groups at Federation Square? Prior to the brawl, the day commenced peacefully as dozens of voters taking part in the referendum were seen queuing outside Federation Square from 8.30am. “The purpose of the referendum was to exercise the democratic right given to all humans by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of freedom of speech and expression,” Jaswinder Singh, CEO of Sikh Volunteers Australia told news.com.au. Melbourne’s referendum event was one of several non-binding referendums that have occurred globally in recent years, with others being held in the UK, Italy, Canada and Switzerland. It’s anticipated more will be hosted across Australian cities in some time. “By conducting a non-binding referendum in the whole world among the Sikh population, Sikhs want to convince the United Nations and the Western World that a binding referendum must be conducted in Punjab to liberate it from Indian occupancy,” Mr Singh said. Sikhs were asked to answer this yes or no question as part of the referendum. Picture: Twitter / @HindolSengupta Those taking part in the referendum were asked the yes-or-no question: “Should Indian Governed Punjab be an independent country?”. After submitting their vote, Sikhs around the polling place were seen waving Khalistan flags while sporting the colours yellow and blue. Voting was open until 5pm that evening. At the same time, it’s believed a small pro-India group who practiced Hinduism were protesting near the Botanical Gardens. At about 4.30pm, pro-India members who allegedly came from the Botanical Gardens protest, were spotted at Federation Square waving their national flag. While it’s still unclear what exactly caused the brawl, a violent clash soon broke out with members of both parties using their flags as weapons while others were forced to flee to safety. The larger altercation came just hours after a smaller dispute in the same area which Victoria Police said occurred shortly after midday.            
    • The problem is that apne think they have made it in life if they move to a gora area.  Likewise suls love to flock to where apne are, no apna ever moves to a predominantly sul area in this day and age.
