Is suraj parkash right? is it a reliable source of info?


Recommended Posts

A sampling of the fake, mischievous and utterly blasphemous of the Sooraj Parkash in in order.

ONE: Guru Hargobind “eloped” with a married woman named Kaulan, brought her to his Darbar and married her. Her father, a Kazi comes to collect money for horses that were owed to him by the Guru. Baba Buddha received the Kazi and says: Sunn Bidh Bhakhyo Sehj Subhaye. Tumrey Gur Jvayi Bann Jaye. To Kaisey Dhan Laibo Dharey Arpub Nij Tanja Kre (5th Raas, 17th Ans). Meaning: Listen calmly to what I say. The Guru is now your son-in-law. Why then would you be entitled to any money. Dedicate to him on behalf of your daughter. The Guru used to abandon the recitation of Sukhmani bani midway to see Kaulan whenever she desired the Guru.

TWO: Guru Har Rai had 8 wives, all of whom were sisters. His first marriage when was 10. Youngest wife was 6 years of age. His son Ram Rai was born out of Guruji’s relations with his servant girl.

THREE: Guru Amardas ji did not wash his hair for a long time. Head lice and worms developed to the point of dropping out of his hair, whence he would pick up and place them back onto his head.

FOUR: Guru Angad developed leprosy on his thumb, it was cured by Sri Chand.

FIVE: After arguing about the futility of the practice, and after composing Gurbani to that effect, Guru Nanak ultimately wore the Janeyu (sacred Hindu thread) upon being convinced by the Pandit. Some 35 years later when he visited Bhai Lalo, his Janeyu was still on his body.

There are two types of people who read/listen to SriGurpartap Suraj Granth…

1. Gurmukh Jogi 

2. Manmukh Bhogi 

The first type of person will listen to Gursikhs of Samparda ( the lineage of Sikhs from Guru Sahiban). These people will do immense Abhiyaaas of Naam  and seva. They will follow and adhere to a very strict code of conduct at all times.

These people will not take any scriptures at face value. Their immense Abhiyaas and sangat of great Gurmukhs will teach them to become a Hans ( a hans can separate milk from water). This is a metaphor for seeing the deeper meaning and moral behind a story. These people will learn to se the wider picture in every situation…

Sadly, there are many people who are of the mindset where they see filth in everything. These people have not done any sangat of samparda Gursikhs. These people are self taught…

Welcome to the forum, bro.

But since this is your only post, I'd like to ask if the entirety of your Sikhi practice is hatred of Suraj Prakash?

If you have jeevan (Sikh lifestyle), a few strange sakhis written into the fourteen volumes of Suraj Prakash won't affect you and you will simply ignore them.

So, is this all you were able to come up with? (Or the other 15?)

What book is it that you are quoting from?

Finally, if you have any life experience at all, you know that stories get twisted from the original happening. And likely, that may have happened in certain episodes from Suraj Prakash.

If you're an expert in Suraj Prakash, you would know that the Taksal kathakars don't do katha of problematic sections of Suraj Prakash. So, what's the problem?

can someone explain if suraj parkash is right or wrong?

Bro, asking if Suraj Prakash is "right" is a wrongheaded question.

Any statement you care to make, other than Gurbani, is potentially "wrong". Even if you make a statement about the rate of acceleration of a mass, it can be wrong in another context.

Suraj Prakash isn't Gurbani.

why is it reliable if it was written in 1843, which was way after guru jis time.

It's a compendium of our history in poetic form.

There may be some sakhis that are inaccurate. It's not a big deal.

If we start removing every single thing written after 1708, we'll have nothing. And that's exactly what our enemies want.

There's room for Gursikh discussion of individual sakhis.

I follow taksal maryada and i havent quite understood why the taksal has chosen to do suraj parkash parchar. 

It's really simple: Because Gurbani says to read sakhis.

That seems to be the context of when I was growing up. It has to be said, in the Singh Sabha drive to portray Sikhi as some sort of Abrahamic type religion, it was a norm to say pretty much all of our puratan texts where 'corrupted' by bahmanwaad, not understanding the diverse views within, and the Indic context of much that was written. This went all the way to Dasam Granth!

I'm so glad we appear to be moving away from that. 

It's that black and white binary mindset that has people jumping up and down about the contents of some puratan granths. People need to grow up and view these texts in a more adult, literary and contextualised manner. But a lot of us will understand that we do have this characteristic in the panth, when people start forming these polarised groups over issues like this and start causing unnecessary controversies.

EVEN THIS BOOK STATES THAT GURU GOBIND SINGH JI EAT AFEEMS....WHICH IS 100% WRONG AND SHAMEFUL..

Leaving aside Guru ji, the general question of taking afeem (opium) in limited quantities for war/medical wounds is simply unproblematic. When you go to the hospital, they give you morphine.

What do you think morphine is? It's an opiate. Even codeine (cough syrup) is an opiate! Ever had a cough?

Granted, it is against Gurmat to take opium or other drugs for the fun of it.

    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
