The Sikh Revolution by Jagjit Singh

Recommended Posts

This Is one of the best books out there when it comes to describing the revolutionary achievements of Sikhi in relation to caste during the early days of the Khalsa. It's essential reading in my opinion. Hope some people learn from it:

@AjeetSingh2019

If you are the artist formerly known as AjeetSinghPunjabi. I just refreshed myself on this book after a good few years. I remember you asking about how Sikhi is different from 'Hinduism'. I think this book does a top class job of highlighting that. You might want to give it a go. 

Start from chapter 7 onwards.

You should post on what's happening. Rarely even come to this section. 

People who read should jump into this section now and then. You might find some gems? Did you read the book? What did you think?

I didnt. But to be honest, i dont want to either. All my life I have been told how great sikhi is and how it was first religion to be egalitarian. First i read accounts by our own people. But they seem like bragging. Then theres accounts by british and muslims about how brave and amazing we were. 

But after awhile it just becomes wish fulfillment.  Especially after the reality. My own father who taught me these sikhi ideals is a big jatt casteist and a ruthless business man and a badal supporter. He had to realize to succeed in life, ideals dont help (not without lots of bhagti).

I know sikhi was meant to he great. And its teachings are amazing. But what if you just want to be normal? What if ur too weak to follow that path? 

And what if the rest of the world has already implemented all of sikhi ideals leaving the sikhs laughably behind.

if you are too weak you lean on Guru ji and follow his footprints to avoid the landmines of life .  If you look closely the world has not even implemented as far as the Guru Sahiban have shown us as basic needs of the people, wildlife, nature  and planet .  We are meant to work hard to illustrate how the model is supposed to work. I'm sorry you father has tripped up and gotten into caste egotism but that was never a part of sikhi . SIKHI IS GREAT, WE ARE NOT ...YET ..  the fault lies with us

So it's only those who can't bear the tribulations of life who seek refuge in the Guru? What of those people who overcome life's cruelties and emerge as stronger people without even knowing the existence of a Guru? Are they now greater than the Guru?

    • Is this a specific prediction regarding Halemi Raj that is being referenced?
    • Veerji have you seen the advertisements which make big promises at the beginning of the ad and than throughout the advertisement they keep repeating the ludicrous promises to the potential consumers?  They always have some out of this world product or service.  Yet its a scam to get people to buy some useless product or service that is not special.  Look in the mirror and wave because you have successfully completed clown college.  You have successfully finished your first scam advertisement on sikh sangat.   I wrote a thread on Sant Thakur singh ji and how he didn’t give the taksal jathedar dastar to anyone before passing and this means sant Jarnail Singh Ji is still the jathedar.  So I have a lot of respect for him.   But you have dragged his name in mud with your clown college dancing on this thread.  You must have learned this moronic way of preaching from none other, thakur singh patiala ( the one with a pot belly, who can't see his feet while standing).  
    • What do you mean by ‘we men’?Though it’s totally true that you lot are responsible for everything evil we see around us, but to take an arrogant stance such as this is mind boggling! Do you even know how many families suffer due to you men behaving this way? What about the children? What have they done to deserve a broken family? You men really need to wake up and smell the coffee. You still behave like kids! Then stop normalising it by depicting it in movies, dramas or  media in general. This is not meant to be a normal behaviour according to sikhism!  Some people are not capable of analysing it properly, they think it’s modern to be cheating or sleeping with multiple partners, especially when they watch it in the movies or elsewhere.
    • We had an  English teacher who looked exactly like him and all the girls went gaga over him, haha! Dishy as hell, a real heartbreaker! Dr. Who, can you mend broken hearts?
    • When a man cheats on a woman, the marriage can still be salvaged because in evolutionary psychology to a woman it means that the man is high status because other women find him attractive to have an affair with him. When a woman cheats on a man, it means the man in not high status enough for her and the marriage is effectively over. If there was no institution of marriage and we lived in a junglee like manner, about 80 per cent of women would be with top 20 per cent of men and the remainder of men would fighting for the remaining 20 per cent of women. That is why you have more female ancestors than male ancestors. There is a practical reason why marriage is there in the first place, you only have to watch a wild-life programme with David Attenborough to figure that one out.
