Why is Music against rules of Sikhi


Recommended Posts

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.

    • The thing is that Hindus will only give it the large when in a significant majority and as soon as the numbers turn against them they pretty much give up. The only exception I've seen to this is the Tamil Hindus of Sri Lanka. They also have appalling unity, did the Punjabi, Tamil, Nepali Hindus come to help the Gujaratis? Nope. Yet you had Arabs and Somalians helping the Indian muslims and Pakistanis.  Sikhs historically have always been a minority in India and even greater Punjab so we are used to fighting when the numbers are against us. Just look at how we retaliated against the muslims of UP who heavily outnumber us when they tried to take our land. Even in Hyderabad Sikhs have fought against Muslims who make up a huge amount of the city.   
    • The recommended schedule for Sikhs is to go sleep saying God's name and wake up doing the same:   ਸਉਦੇ ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਉਚਰਹਿ ਉਠਦੇ ਭੀ ਵਾਹੁ ਕਰੇਨਿ ॥ saudē vāh vāh ucharah uthadē bhī vāh karēn . Whilst going to sleep they utter Lord's glories and praises and when awake they eulogise Him as well. ਨਾਨਕ ਤੇ ਮੁਖ ਉਜਲੇ ਜਿ ਨਿਤ ਉਠਿ ਸੰਮਾਲੇਨਿ ॥੧॥ nānak tē mukh ujalē j nit uth sanmālēn .1. Nanak bright are the faces of those who daily arise early and remember God. p312   You have to sleep the same number of hours anyway. So why not go to sleep early and wake up early? Afterwards, you'll still have the same number of hours to study--there are only 24 hours in a day. If you say it's the same if you do Amrit Vela first and then go to sleep, it's not: If you do it your way, after you wake up, you won't be worshipping, as commanded above. Instead, you'll head to school or whatever. We're supposed to worship after waking: ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ ਸੁ ਭਲਕੇ ਉਠਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ gur satigur kā jō sikh akhāē s bhalakē uth har nām dhiāvai . He, who calls himself a Sikh of the Great True Guru, should rise early and meditate on God's Name. p305 Meditate after you rise, Gurbani says.
