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!   😀

    • Hopefully he does his brother's efforts justice, and doesn't try to reshape and re-assess Bhai Jagraj Singh's beliefs and legacy to promote the Globalist neo-Communist doctrine of which he's a passionate adherent. Hey, what am I saying, this is Sunny Hundal and the BBC, they can't not follow the narrative. And I'm beginning to suspect Hundal has latched onto his brother's untimely passing as currency to advance his own career and ideals. If that's actually true, then he's a terrible human being.
    • Journalist Sunny Hundal explores the legacy of his late brother Jagraj Singh, the most popular Sikh leader of modern Britain, who sparked an unprecedented revival of young people returning to the faith. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/proginfo/2020/04/young-sikh-and-proud?fbclid=IwAR18ZCUZ-iOhZxgizy10iNCqAEtQol3rXL5x-bEAH3BfqPnNq8bgx-5iMps
    • If people of other religions, live their lives by following the principles of good moral behaviour, then these people will receive a good quality of life, in the next life. If a person wants to get in to Sachkhand, then they have to adhere to 10th Patshahi’s Sikhi, there’s no other route. Every era has their own maryada and rules. The maryada of this era, is that of Gursikhi, as prescribed by 10th Patshahi. Some people may ask, what about people before 10th Patshahi came to earth? 10th Patshahi’s maryada was always required. Look at the facts! Kesh were kept intact, by everyone, until a Demon minded king forced the kesh cutting of Brahmins, in order to rid them of their spiritual strength. Physical relations before marriage, or extra marital relations are forbidden in all scriptures. Tobacco is considered evil, even in ancient Sanskrit scriptures. Alcohol consumption and intoxicants are also forbidden in ancient scriptures. The killing of and consumption of animal flesh is also a punishable act in the court of the Dharam Raj. So, any deviance from the maryada will result in suffering. Any adherence to the maryada will result in sukh. The bottom line... If you want to get in to Sachkhand, Khandey di pauhal, and strict adherence to code of conduct is a complete necessity. Whether you take Amrit in this life, or the next life or lives, is up to you...
    • THEY BURN IN HELL!!!! THEY'RE BEATEN BY DEMONS!  Nah, I'm kidding. It's a good question. I myself have wondered how the "system" for organising and processing these issues in the afterlife is designed. It would suggest, based on what happens here on Earth, that the followers of all but one faith will be disappointed, to say the least, when they're confronted by the objective parameters of the reality of in the Great Beyond. My theory, based on years of unhinged daydreams, is that every soul needs to incarnate into every belief system before "moving on" and completing a particular cycle of rebirth. If you're spiritually attuned, it's quite obvious to spot the people in their present lifetimes who previously belonged to a particular religion, or held certain beliefs, in a previous lifetime, because they carry over much of the baggage, attitude, and demeanour of their previous selves, which they just haven't been able to shed in their latest incarnation. So, what happens is they transpose that innate manner of being they've accumulated over many lifetimes, and it's continued in their present. There's no conscious desire to progress on a higher level. Now, you could argue the material world makes it impossible to keep these lofty thoughts at the forefront of our minds; that navigating life is difficult enough without the individual going to the lengths of conducting a parallel spiritual meta-narrative alongside their daily corporeal narrative, that is seemingly difficult to prove in an objective sense, and therefore increasingly viewed as non-existent and foolish in this age of spiritual decadence. Contrary to what's taught by preachers, transcending religion and becoming one with the Creator is not an overnight or one-lifetime feat for the vast majority. You have to earn it through arduous, countless lifetimes, and I feel in this respect many Sikhs will be immensely disheartened when they come to realise this in their own situations.  But, yeah, keep following and listening to the corrupt God-men, lol. They've got your back... 😁
