Was listening to Sant Ji's katha on youtube.
Sant ji stated apart from the traditional raags, there is nothing wrong if Kirtan is sung in other NON - Raags set up by our Guru Ji's.
His example: Think of poison in a bowl. Drinking the poison then blaming the bowl is silly. The poison is bad not the bowl. Likewise, we will never call a bowl Amrit once it contains Amrit init. Sameway it's not the raags being good / bad... it's WHAT we put into those raags. How many times Kirtan was sung but on a track of sum Bollywood tune? It is happening in Gurudwara by Raagis! Youtube also has Kaweshri jatha singing history of 1984, on Dr Dre's - Still Dre track.
Rap instrumental/ Bolly tunes stand neutral. We can either put bad things and sing with our own remixes and lyrics... or we can recreate to sing Shabads of Gurbabi, kirtan and Sikh Prachaar over them.
Everything in Gurbani points us towards the Atma. Atma and Parmatma are the same…
Atama and Parmatma is the source that creates and causes everything…
What have the following items got in common?
These things are powered by electricity. Without electricity these things are lifeless. It’s the electricity that causes these things to function…
Atma is the source of energy that allows everything to happen.
without Atma, we are lifeless…
Call this Atama RAGUNATH…call this Atma by any other name…the fact remains that it’s the life force energy…
Dieties also have the same Atma as humans, but they still part of the creation, and not the creator…
Hi I want to know who’s ragunath in gurbani Hindu claim this word appear for ram chandra
if we read guru teg bahadur maharaj salok maharaj clearly rejecting ram gayo ravan geo
but at the last pangti
Kahu naanak īh bipaṭi mai
tek ēyk ragɦunaaṭɦ ॥55॥
Says Nanak, in this calamity, the Lord alone is my support
who is this ragunaath
why would maharaj use ragunath as refrence for god?
Throughout history we have been tested and tried. We remained steadfast and resiliant. The events that took place in Punjab and outside of Punjab in the past years made it quite clear we are big players in the game which kept the world powers on edge. It started off with the drug pandemic in Punjab, to the uproar by Bhai Amritpal Singh to the Farmer's protest.
Outside of Punjab the deaths of Avtar Singh Khanda (UK) and Hardeep Singh Nijjar (Canada) created a stir within our community. This was probably our first real opportunity to establish something but how quickly members of our own community forget history. We have been a threat to civilization in the past and this is probably what the world powers are concerned about. However, may we continue grow and learn through Gurbani and like Jaswant Singh Khalra said: 'May the spirit of equal rights Punjab continue to kindle'.
This is why people used to get married earlier in puratan times. Think about it, nowadays you legit have to be brahmacharya at ages when you're supposed to be married and producing children, which historically speaking, is unprecedented outside of the Sants in Indic tradition.
