Your Saints are very fortunate; their homes are filled with the wealth of the Lord's Name.

ਪਰਵਾਣੁ ਗਣੀ ਸੇਈ ਇਹ ਆਏ ਸਫਲ ਤਿਨਾ ਕੇ ਕਾਮਾ ॥੧॥
paravaan ganee seiee ieh aae safal tinaa ke kaamaa ||1||
Their birth is approved, and their actions are fruitful. ||1||

ਮੇਰੇ ਰਾਮ ਹਰਿ ਜਨ ਕੈ ਹਉ ਬਲਿ ਜਾਈ ॥
mere raam har jan kai hau bal jaiee ||
O my Lord, I am a sacrifice to the humble servants of the Lord.

ਕੇਸਾ ਕਾ ਕਰਿ ਚਵਰੁ ਢੁਲਾਵਾ ਚਰਣ ਧੂੜਿ ਮੁਖਿ ਲਾਈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
kesaa kaa kar chavar ddulaavaa charan dhooR mukh laiee ||1|| rahaau ||
I make my hair into a fan, and wave it over them; I apply the dust of their feet to my face. ||1||Pause||

Does this family like Nihang Singhs, looks like they were excluded from this Harimandir Sahib pic for more favoured personailities!

A closer look…

Hopefully harmonium in harimandir Sahib pictures will be rare, it's good to see that pictures were created centuries back to represent proper sikh instruments and well done to Akal Takht jathedaar to start the process for kicking harmonium out from Harimandir Sahib. Good riddance to the colonial era of harmonium at Harimandir Sahib, a very bad representation the panth has made compared to how Guru Arjan Dev ji and sangat greatly promoted Tanti Saaj keertan in Harimandir Sahib.

It will do us better if we take a more positive attitude rather than picking negatives.

Its the first time I've seen something like this. I think its great! It shows unity between different groups of the Sikh panth. Many Mahapurkhs have said that squabbling on a jatha level is frowned upon "up there" and this work looks to fix this.

Yes, there are many other great GurSikhs Mahapurkh that have been left out. However, the GurSikhs included in the work are dependent on the sharda of the individual/family who has commissioned the work.

If possible, can we name all of the GurSikhs included in the work?

The obvious two are Sant Jarnail Singh Jee Bindrawale and Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh.

I think Bhai Rama Singh is in the panj pyarey behind Maharaj.

I really feel most of the "gur"sikhs in this pic come from a certain jatha, although there are a few other Singhs such as mahapurakh like baba Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale, I don't really see much panthic unity from this pic. That is just my viewpoint unfortunately...

 

I supposed the right hand side represents shaheed Singhs from the last century, and I am unsure about the Singhs near Guru Granth Sahib maharaj.

 

And I am very excited to see Tanti Saaj as a regular representation in Harimandir Sahib as was the case in puraatan times and pictures, as opposed to the archaic Harmonium.

They are all gursikh piare  there is no difference they are brothers and sisters together  the divisions are illusionary created by our dushman to keep us from being ik joot as a khalsa family. Don't play the mindgames they would like us to play , rise above and recognise your blood

yes, the divisions are definitely created by our dushman. Once we lost our raaj, the divisions were created in the form of jathas and committees. and came out to play and confuse the panth!

Jathas and sects severely weakened us. A billion+ strong religion like Islam can afford to mess around with its Shia-Sunni nonsense. For us, even anti-DG issues are clearly manufactured to create distance and differences. The founders of sects care more for their own glory and remembrance than for the unification and prosperity of the Sikh faith as a unit. There was never any need for sects in Sikhi.

The Singh Sabha thing hasn't helped either. Okay, it was a reaction and compromise to colonialism, it should face that now and correct things. At least some of the sampardayas have unbroken lineages going back to pre-annexation.
