Why is Music against rules of Sikhi

First question. Is non-Gurbani music against Rehit of being Sikh?

Second. What is the ‘proof’ from a Sikhi perspective of this?

I personally think listening to most music outside of Gurbani or Dharmic non-Gurbani does more harm than good.

Obviously some music is ‘worse’ than others with damage/influence to the Psyche and influence on our thoughts and behaviour

But, if I was to explain this from Sikhi perspective to someone challenging me (Sikh or non-Sikh) how would I summarise it?

I wonder if it relates to music with lyrics. 

What if it is music with no lyrics with only instruments. 

Music does have a way of impacting mood and energy. I wonder if it has to do with the frequencies that the vibrations give off?

Yes, it stems from ancient Vedic aatmic energy / vibrational frequencies philosophies, etc. Same with food / diet regulations, i.e. satvic, rajas, tamas, etc. Apne religious instructors don't explain it because they don't have the knowledge to go into the subject on a deep level AND because they didn't study the subject itself, so they rely on Islamic-Sharia style decrees to prohibit it, making Sikhi seem like a one-dimensional Islamic sect.

Yes, it is something that I have come to realise. More through self discovery and putting 2 and 2 together. 

If you hear something like hard rock/heavy thrash metal like Metallica or something of that nature, it has a particular intensity and it make bang your head up and down which is what you see those goreh banging their heads, crowd jumping and chunking themselves in mosh pits. Those electric guitars, lol

I had some spoilt kids in the back of my car once and I threatened them with classical music if they did not behave, lol. I switched on Classic FM (which I never listened to before) but it calmed them down. Very strange, lol and they liked it.

Yes, children often respond well to music. Many Indians use mantras to stop babies crying and to calm unborn babies down too, along with the mother. 

Others use mantras to aid healing of their loved ones in hospital. 

Very powerful tool which should not be forsaken as I'm sure Muslims could do with it. Quite badly.

I vaguely remember something about studies conducted where plants responded to classical music through better growth compared to other types of music.

I think that plants also have some kind of collective intelligence and respond to certain stimuli.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
