Watched this today and agreed with Singh ji

I don't know who this Baba is, but I do agree that simple langars are better.

Yep some people treat langar hall like a soup kitchen. If they just served Dal That would deter people who think Gurdwara is some kind of canteen for free food. Also langar should be plain. Not fancy. Ie so many dishes and sweets. Ect. 

One improvement I have seen is we now have a leaflets area in Gurdwaras for people to learn.

It is the proliferation of Akhand paths, Sukhmani paths and other programmes for birthdays that has exacerbated this.

People start to serve guests like at home rather than serving the sangat.

I remember there was a Saakhi of Guru Sahib shutting down Langar? I forget the details, does anyone here know of it?

Who resides in the Sangat ? Guru. So the Guru is sangat and the sangat is Guru. So would you not want to serve our Guru the best you can?

So what if people come to the Gurdwara for the food, make the best and let them come.

Have big hearts guys, Guru tha langar sabho awaay, let them come the house of Guru Nanak is open to all.

Tell you what, you moaners why don't you cook up dhal and roti at home for a week you will soon get chittar.

This is Guru ghar, let it be the best you can, make the best and serve the best and Guru ji will smile on you.

What is wrong with the proliferation of Akahnd Paaths and Sukhmani sahibs, you think people were doing a sin ! Why shouldn't they do paaths at the gurdwara and why shouldn't you make the best langar you can? Everyone has sharda and everyone wants to make the best .

Bar humbug to the lot of yer!   😀

    • Work to set up first Sikh varsity outside India on in US city Updated: Jan 25, 2020 22:02 IST By Surjit Singh , Hindustan Times, Amritsar A group of NRIs donated 125 acre land to set up the university, work on which started in August last year A group of NRIs have donated nearly 125 acres of land for setting up ‘Khalsa University’ in Bellingham city of the United States, which will be the first Sikh varsity outside India, and are working on the project to start the proposed courses in a year or so. Bellingham is a coastal city in Washington state near the Canada border. US-based Manjit Singh Dhaliwal, who along with other US-based Sikh families donated the land for the purpose, said, “The work was initiated in August last year. The project has got shape with the grace of Waheguru.” Dhaliwal, who hails from Chowkiman village in Ludhiana district and was felicitated by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) in Amritsar for his contribution to Sikhism through the upcoming varsity, said, ““We have purchased two buildings of a government college with the help of members of the community to run the courses. We have got licenses by the education board and the local government,” he said. “We have got online courses approved by the government and they will be introduced in the building we have purchased. We will approach Sikhs across the world to seek cooperation to develop the campus. Though we are short of funds, I hope the sangat will help us realising our dream and in a year we will be able to start all the proposed courses”, said Dhaliwal who owns gas stations in Bellingham, which is adjacent to Canadian city of Vancouver. “The university will offer courses in engineering, medical, law, languages, accountancy etc besides gurbani research, Sikh history and gurmat sangeet. Local people of other faiths are happy because value-based education is the need of the hour at a time when youths are getting hooked to drugs and other things,” he added. Accompanying him, Prof Gurnam Singh, former head of Gurmat Sangeet department of Punjabi University, Patiala, who is involved in the project, told that the project is on its initial stage and few classes have started in the building which is temporary campus. SGPC senior vice president Rajinder Singh Mehta presented him a ‘siropa’ (robe of honour), a replica of the Golden Temple and memorial coins and religious books. SGPC-run Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University, Fatehgarh Sahib, is considered as the sole Sikh university. https://m.hindustantimes.com/cities/work-to-set-up-first-sikh-varsity-outside-india-on-in-us-city/story-J0TL6vQz6h2twluxzmPkGN.html
    • Should we really be proud of these soldiers who were fighting for the occupiers in lands they had no business in l persoanly am ashamed of them for being lap dogs to the Brits 
    • That quote is 100 percent true of churches period. The fact you instantly swung and happened to connect doesn't change the fact you're a racist bro. 
    • Well Puzzled confirmed that his friend was Jamaican who mentioned this to him. Jamaicans in the UK are Afro-Caribbean.  It's like saying that corruption is common with Gurdwara commitee members. These Gurdwara commitee members are Sikh and it is true.  Nothing racist about pointing it out.
