Converting North India


Recommended Posts

It wouldn't be hard to do that tbh, but our leaders are fat pigs and keep all the money for themselves. It would be great to have some tough Rajasthanis and Haryanvis as Sikhs. Sikhi would be easy to spread as most Indians already believe in karma, reincarnation, god being everywhere, people in india are very familiar with these things. All we need to do is send out people to do parchar and spread awareness  but our leaders are too corrupt, they just dont give a <banned word filter activated> about sikhi or sikhs

I personally feel that it would be quite easy to convert Haryanvi Jats. They are after all outcastes in the Hindu caste system, and they can feel at home with many of their ethnic counterparts being Sikh.

The Arya Samaj used a similar tactic to convert them to their sect. They were not given the Kshatriya status they hoped to be given by other Hindu denominations, however the Arya Samaj gave them what they desired. We need to do something similar, not only with Haryanvi Jats but with all downtrodden communities in India. Give them what they fervently desire: a status within society. Sikhi provides that.

Yeah i dont think it would be too hard especially because they are not that different to us culturally same with places like Ganga-nagar in Rajasthan which has punjabi influence

There are Rajput Sikhs, I'm friends with one. Not sure about other Rajasthani Sikhs. However its imperative that Sikhism spreads out in the Northwestern corridor of India, be it Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Kashmir and Gujarat. It allows for a concentrated area of Sikhs rather than sparsely populated which makes them more vulnerable, and unable to have a support system. It will also then be easier to spread it from there on to other regions. 

only problem with rajput sikhs is they hold being rajput higher than Khalsa...remember they are the ones who requested seperate bata for amrit...

Weren't the Singhs who killed massa rangar Rajasthani Singhs?  Do Rajasthani Sikhs still exist today? not the Punjabis that have moved there but actual Rajasthani Sikhs? 

Hanji, they were from Bikaner.

I don't give two hoots about what gujjus say

sikhs have a divine mandate to spread gurbani's message , understanding this people will automatically reject oppressive dictats of other faiths

 

Okay I see you point. Converting is allowed in Sikhism. So why do we never do it. I also hear so many who are against converting and swear by it. 

I really should stop with my guji phrazes. 

ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh  ?

    • Umm, that's totally irrational, bro. There are plenty of prakash-dara Singhs in Punjab (less than we'd like, but still plenty). No one cares that you are sabat soorat. It isn't 1986. You can walk around in chola, kurta-pajama, or jeans. Whatever. If you want the look @dallysingh101 is referring to, just go into a cheap clothing shop (not a Western-style mall) and buy some shirts for 250 rupees or a track suit for 2000 rupees. You'll get the cheap stuff made in some sweatshop in Bombay.
    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
