Vaheguru ji ka khalsa

Vaheguru ji ki fateh 

 

Sangat ji, I have a few questions that I have come across and hope some guru da piaara can shine a light on

I have been studying gurbani in Guru Granth Sahub Ji via a sehej path I have kept. I have been reading 1-4 shabads a day and fully understanding the shabad before moving on. I am currently on ang 33 and plan to spend a few years to complete the sehaj path.

My questions are:

when should I start studying other banis like Dasam Granth bani, Bhai Gurdas jis vaaran, and Bhai Nanad Lal jis bani?  

Is there a certain point of understanding I should be at from Guru Granth Sahib Ji before starting to read other banis or should I complete my sehaj path before moving on?

If there is a certain point of understanding, how do I know I am ready? I remember reading somewhere a while ago that Dasam Granth bani contains bir raas and Guru Granth sahib ji has shaant raas and that a person cannot handle the bir raas in Dasam Granth if they are not ready. 

What is the order I should study other banis in, like should I first study Bhai Gurdas Jis vaaran before moving onto Dasam Granth bani and so forth. Guru Granth Sahib ji obviously being first.

Thank you in advance

Do one at time.

However, Shant / Bir rass both must b maintained. So after Sehaj of SGGS be sure to read the banias, along with starting Dasam Granth, rather than focusing purely on DG... Keep the energy of Shant rass up is what am saying.

A recommendation, if you plan to study/ do DG an hour a day, do 10 mins of SGGS. Or if 2 hours then 20 mins SGGS / Naam Simran. Both will go hand in hand.

This is not true.  Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji Bani also is shaant and Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is also bir rass.  Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji tells on history, true story of avatars, and gives us more Bani to read on praising Akal Purakh.   Think about it this way.  When Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib ji was fighting wars along side Sikhs. Did those Sikhs not have bir rass?  Bir rass is obtained from the Guru and the Guru today is Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.

    • Sidh Gohst is a Sikh Prayer... (i hope u weren't being sarcastic)? Prayer came about when Guru Nanak Ji had an assembly (gohst) with Sidhs, hence the name Sidh Gohst. The prayer is like a Q&A session where Sidhs ask n Guru Ji answers... NOW! Who been telling me to stick t learning about Sidh Gohst?? 😔
    • Get a normal bike n ride it. Road bike u can go far n fast so it's advantageous. Second bike type, ideal for short distant travelling n cycle at own leisure... Totally forgot wha the types called though I own one. Not mountain bike something else.
    • Is that Harpreet's mugshot? Lol! We need to understand y they committed a crime. Obviously for money but what lead them? For their age appears they had a hard life or "hard" life (depends how u look at it) and thas it! They understood the phenomenon of dog eat dog world. So they took a drastic step and failed... Of course they could've succeeded.
    • and also, as your next post alludes to, naamdharis also take khanday dee pahul, and actually most of them do compared to "us" mainstream sikhs. naamdharis are also much closer to rehit than some of these jathabandis we have now corrupt the panth since colonial times. However naamdharis are missing the kshatriya rehit of khalsa, ie the warrior maryada. I think a lot of "sikh" children would easily get influenced by christian schools due to lack of sikhi knowledge, and this includes those who go to these schools in India as well Yes, Khalsa sikhs used to learn from other sikh sampradaiye as well when it came to spiritual gyaan and sikhi knowledge. Obviously for learning there are no strict rules, however other rules are different for khalsa sikhs as they need to follow the military rules as well compared to sehajdhari "civilian" sikhs. And this is funny, but would learning from a harmonium teacher harm your sikhi, as it takes you away from learning sikh/Gurus' instruments? I would find it harmful for someone to teach that crazy keertan which plays at many rehnsbhais, 🤣😂
    • I have been reading some the posts over the last week and all I have seen is the constant squabbling and negative judgemental attitude towards each other.   Whether we like like it or not we are a community made up of people from all walks of lives.  Our temperaments are different, some hot and some cold.  Some of us want to do things for now and some for longer term goals.  Some want to take a militant approach and some diplomatic.  This is not unique to us this has been the case for all communities trying achieve goals in a struggle.  Malcom X’s ideology was different from Martin Luther Kings but ultimately the goal was the same.  Bhagat Singhs ideology was different from the All India Congress but the goal was ultimately the same.  Nelson Mandela was hot blooded when he was young but later switched to more diplomatic solutions for South Africa.  The same can be observed from figures throughout all of history and never has everyone collectively agreed upon one single method of achieving community goals.   Just pick the organisations, groups and temperaments that you feel you can gel with and quit the bashing of each other.  I’m sure by doing we would be more united, be more powerful and achieve so much more than ultimately searching for the one miracle pill to solve our issues.
