hi

well guru ji saw the khalsa as his sons, he recognized the whole of the khalsa as his family and in a letter to aurangzeb, zafarnamah, guru ji said 

"What happened that you have killed four children (my sons), 

the coiled snake (in the form of my Khalsa) still remains (to confront you)."

 

So guru equated his 4 sons with the khalsa 

Sikhs are supposed to recognize all other sikhs as family, so if a loved one passes away you still have thousands of others that are your family.  This in todays time is hard to imagine, if only the Sikhs of today thought this way  ....

It is said that when Guru ji was informed of the martyrdom of his sons, he said:

Char mooay tau kia bhaya, jeevat kei hazaar

Meaning

What does it matter if 4 died, many thousands live.

That is that his other sons (the Khalsa) live on. So Guru Sahib didn't weep and cry like men today are encouraged to "show their emotions".

Not being rude, but don't need hearsay, is there anything written by Guru Gobind Singh Ji himself? I can't find anything.

The movie chaar sahibzadey part 2, i think its called banda singh bahadur. The 3D one. Shows the saakhi from sooraj parkash.

Its nice saakhi abt how guruji teaches mataji to deal with her grief, i call it the choori saakhi. 

You can watch the movie or read the original from sooraj parkash. Sooraj parkash is the history of the 10 gurus and the khalsa written in 1800s. Its one of our most authentic and oldest historical sources. You might be able to find it on ikatha.com or vidhiya.com. they might even have english translations. You will have to search through it tho. Its at least 10 volumes. Or u can buy the hardcover books in english version from turiyacharity.com

    • I tell you one thing that set me back years (unnecessarily in my opinion). When I started trying to read Gurmukhi properly I too tried with Gurbani but for some unfathomable reason no one told me that certain vowel symbols (especially at the ends of words) are grammatical indicators and are not actually read as part of the word. This can confuse people (well it did me).  So you might want to focus on some other less difficult texts (like children's books with words you might already know) for a bit - just to get proper familiarity with the sounds associated with the symbols.  Dasam Bani doesn't use these silent symbols so you could also maybe use that as a tool to help nail reading?  Great that you've got to this point in any case! Good on you. There is nothing like being able to read in the original script - keep at it!
    • Bhulan andar sab ko, abhul Guru kartar... Just needto cross reference with Guru ji as the saying goes anything worth knowing is worth the effort
    • It is an inadvertent way of the Pak Govt saying " Hey Sikhs, if you want to see your Historical sites, you pay for it". The fact of the matter is that Pakistan does not get a lot of tourists in. There are growing number of Sikhs going there and Sikhs going there will spend money. It won't just be pilgrim tours, there will be knock on effect in other areas too. People who left after partition may want to see their ancestral villages.  
    • No, there isn't, in the way they mean it. Granted, Gurbani says you need a guru. But that the Radha Swamis give the wrong meaning of that to say you need a "living" guru. Of course, though, our Guru is living. What they mean is a Guru made of flesh and bones. If they are saying the meaning of this is that there is a Satguru in every age (jug), then there still is a Satguru ... Guru Granth Sahib ji. It's fine to say that there is still Satguru. Where in Gurbani do they get that Satguru's name is Gurinder Singh Dhillon (the current Radha Swami guru)? Yeah. Tell them, so? You can't find God without a guru. But the only guru worth having is the Satguru (true guru). Gurinder Singh Dhillon is definitely not it. ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਬਾਝਹੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਨਹੀ ਕੋਈ ਨਿਗੁਰੇ ਕਾ ਹੈ ਨਾਉ ਬੁਰਾ ॥੧੩॥ "Without the True Guru, there is not another Guru, and the one without the Guru has a bad name." p434 Ask them to prove that Gurinder Singh Dhillon is the Satguru.
