30. Shaster vidyaa atae ghorhae di savaari da abhiaas karnaa - Train in the skills of weaponary and horsemanship.

 

I think it could be optional since in the rehat maryada we are given these days doesn't really say.

Though it would be nice to learn both as you never know when you could need it.

I would say in the modern world, that horsemanship has translated into some impressive motorcycle use...for...uh...justice.

well if you look at how warfare is done today, i dont see how motorcycles would be of any use, because now battles happen 200-1000 feet away with rifles, and there is never hand to hand combat so riding a motorcycle into the battle would just be suicide. the only sensible place where motorcycles would make sense is in guerilla warfare, like hit and runs or assassinations. an example from sikh history would be like harjinder singh jinda and sukhdev singh ji sukha, where they assassinated the enemies of the khalsa panth such as lalit makhan and general arun vadiya. jinda sukha assassinated them both on a motorcycle.

Motorcycles are largely replaced in modern warfare, you're right, but they were also not invented that long ago for warfare.  Warfare didn't have drones then etc, but it certainly had plenty of bombs and bullets.  The soldiers that used them in war, are the ones that popularized them int he USA when returning from war.  That is how all the MC gangs were formed.

In recent post 84 sikh history, many shaheed used their horsemanship skills, on motorcycles to pull off some awesome hits.  Like you said.

They are equally epic! You can't beat this old school rock, trust me. This kinda music makes you forget where you are sort of thing.

    • Thats why some things are forbidden while some are just frowned upon. There r different restrictions and different types of bad things. The things that are considered the worst will affect not only ur spiritual life but also ur physical life such as health and society and ur family as well: such as stealing, using drugs, lust, bf gf stuff. If u look at people who are poor especially in developed coungries like america is is because they have indulged in these worst things and ruined their life and their families and future generations. Like having kids out of wedlock, stealing and going to jail, drugs etc. (Excluding mental illness) I know you are going to say, thats not what im referring to. Masturbation wont ruin ur life to that extent, but it is a cop out. U r taking the easy way out. Instead of fighting one of the grandest hardest fights against ur mind, against mahabir lust, ur giving in.  Like bhai jagraj singh of basics used to say, sikhi doeant have too many rules, thats why we have a lot of grey areas and these questions arise, because each person can decide for themselves based on their goals. People who are really strongly on the path of spirituality  will want to avoid movies, songs, sports. And will try to restrain their mind at all times. But as grihisti sikhs if we arent going to go to that extent. That doesnt mean we give in and allow anything. Just youtube it, so many ppl talking about no fap and its benefits, cold baths, dopamine fast, meditation.  Shouldnt sikhs be of a higher caliber? We r forgetting, more than saint soldiers, we were made monk householders, grihisti yogis. We were supposed to strive for mukti, liberation while raising family, living in the world and trying to save the world. Any of these goals is hard to do and takes a lifetime, so as sikhs how can we have time for pleasures when such heavy duties await us?
    • Hmmm interesting maybe someone has stolen them, hope not, but I'm sure they will sort it out now its back on YouTube. In the about section of the YouTube page it does link to basics website.
    • The logo is different though - it says live news
    • Videos started to trickle back    .
