How's everyone holding up with the lockdown? I worry for folks who have never had to spend extended periods of time in one place. It's a real shock to the system. I suggest keeping your mind active as much as possible with things that don't involve worrying and watching the news, lol. If you've got a backyard, sit outside for a while, breathe in the fresh air, listen to nature, etc. Don't stay couped up inside, especially since the weather's warming up in the UK at least. Keep yourself active within the walls of your home as much as possible. Listen to Gurbani or Kirtan. You may not believe it, but it works in ways that affect us on certain frequencies that gives us peace and contentment when done regularly.
All these modern deras are set up by the government too I dnt understand what the government gets out of these deras though? These deras are super powerful. Beas wala dera is very popular in doaba and peoples have donated miles and miles and miles of land to the dera government must get some money out of these places? And in return the deras maybe promote the party and get the party votes?
The amount of land these deras have is mad
Why did the congress create nirankaris/gurbachan? What was the actual motive was religious or political? I dont think taksalis were considered a threat at that point by the congress? Not until 1978? But obviously because of the punjabi subha movement and everything else the Congress had realised that sikhs aren't the sort to settle down and be quite with whatever rubbish is thrown at them.
Was gurbachan nirankari sent as a distraction, or a way to alter sikhi. Iv read his deras had a lot of drugs and sex.
And iv read the akalis and sgpc just sat there quite and didnt say anything.
The modern day deras are like left overs of the nirankaris.
