    If this type of parchar offends you don't listen to him. Just keep listening to people like dhumma and banta singh. Why do you insist on cramming your view(s) of sikhi down others' throats? Now you guys are after NKJ? Honestly man if it doesn't match your taste, listen other parcharaks. At the end of the day he tells everyone to read guru sahib for themselves, if you guys are right, then why are you worried?

    It changes when you do this for a living. You depend on others to make money and thus keep quiet regardless of whatever filth flies around.

    Just happened to catch a few minutes on the Sikh Channel and they were discussing the events in Catalonia and there is quite a significant sangat presence around the Barcelona and Catalonia region. Obviously our Sikh brothers and sisters there have a lot of sympathies with the people of Catalonia because they can relate very much to the struggle. Madrid acts in the same manner as Delhi in terms of siphoning off the resources of more productive regions. Catalonians suffered a lot under the Franco regime. They have their own language and culture. There was a conference with some guy called Gagan Singh and lo and behold he was sitting with the Catalan leader Carles Puigemont. In the audience, there was more Sikhs than the locals there. Something always perplexes about our people. I can understand the sympathies because of the similarities and I have been doing some research and understanding with the history but why do our people have to be at the forefront of fighting other people's battles. What are our people hoping to achieve with this type of support. Are we going to get support from the Catalonians for an independent Sikh state? Do the Sikhs in Catalonia realise that by gaining Independence, Catalonia won't be able to be part of the E.U. and they won't be able to move to other parts of Europe once they become pakkeh.

    Brother singhbj singh, I will not go into depth as I do not see the need, for the verses of Kabeer Jee are direct and simple. You see we all know, Wahiguru is present everywhere, but that His presence as such is not of much avail for us, cause though He is within us also, we do not see Him. It is only when we do His simran, we are carried within those subtle spiritual realms, where we can see His Jot in full refulgence and hear His sweet divine voice, for as the Bani says: Amrit Bani Har Har Teyree. Outer Amrit is had through mouth, but the inner Amrit Bani, is heard by the soul, as we all know, Wahiguru is known Satnam or Shabad also. So here Bhagat Kabeer Jee is saying, if I ever die, let me be at that time engaged in His Bhakti, for it is the only vehicle which transports me to that realm, or call it His door, His Darbar, where I can have His Darshan and listen His sweet amritful voice. Also when we are conscious of the world we are unconscoius of the reality within, while if we are within, we are dead to the world and its paraphernalia, so Bhagat Kabeer Jee is saying, He wishes to die at His door, means, dead for the world, but much alive spiritually in the inner realms. Also see the true humility of this Bhagat, for we all know, nobody can reach Him, without His kirpa, yet from his words, he is telling us, he is such a sinner, that in fear, he says he hopes, He does not ask : who is lying at my door? Sangat Jee, even the lying at His door, it is by His Hukum only, it is now just a matter to time to enter inside. For if He has brought us till His door, He wants us to enter, and not for rejecting, as mostly we manmukhs falsely do with our fellow beings. I am not saying with this my reply I am 100%right, but it is my personal view, though the Sangat here is quite wise and can also give their respectable opinions. Sat Sree Akal.

    well you have got time and love for your little town in warwickshire, as you have written essays on this, then thought your clever by calling me a pakora LOL. But when I called you a samosa you didnt like it. Now do you realise how pathetic you come across? I aint got negativity or hatred, I got better things to do in my time. You just dont like the fact I cussed your town, your probs part of the besharam commitee yourself hence why you got ants in your pants LOL. Maybe you should add your own name to this list!!! P.S I rather stay away from your palm, never know where its been.

    Yet again, more Hatred and negativity. I have no time for you and your allegations. I'm not too proud of the town i was raised in, neither do i have excessive attachment with anything. I just feel the need to defend a cause when and where required. No amount of my answers to your allegations and assumptions will ever change your negative views. Talk to the Palm, because the face don't give a damn.

    LOL geeza you started the name calling by trying to be funny and calling me pathetic little cuss such as 'pakora'... seriously how old are you? and all my points are not 'gossip' Dharam Seva Records and/or those associated with them - they used to post on their Facebook page on a regular basis about the besharam tactics of the leam gurdwara commitee, asking for money to pay utility bills when Sikhi classes used to take place Building a bar - 2014 time, there was a protest there as a result by Singhs Interfaith marriages - these have been and are still going on at this gurdwara - this led to a protest that got messy in late 2015. Jathedar Daduwal said it himself, that when he came to leam they told him before his diwaan that he cannot mention Khalistan, speak against the sarkaar or even talk against drinking sharab Google mota sio and sumedh saini. regarding the leam/warwick youth - geeza are you blind, walk around you town centre, go to places where people go and you will see a lot of leam girls with goreh/kaleh boyfriends/husbands, while you will be lucky to see any keshdari lads even with trimmed beards. If getting out the house is something you cant do, look at majority of leam girls on facebook etc and you will know what i am talking about. Sitting here writing all this doesnt give me any pleasure, its actually besti that a highly populated 'sikh' area is such a shambles. From the leam lads i know, there is now a lot of muslims moving in, buying take aways etc so i can imagine the situation getting worse. you obvs love your beloved leam area, instead of calling me brother, go and see the score on ground level as opposed to wearing rose tinted glasses.

    You can call me whatever you want to, that's all you're capable of to be honest, just running your mouth off by the sounds of it. I actually hold my head in shame with the disgust and hatred you are coming out with. Where on earth have you heard all of this gossip from? These claims are unbelievable and I can tell you straight that I will not be here to pick at all of your wild claims and accusations. It makes me sad to think this is the perception of an outsider. God knows the truth and exactly what happens at Leamington and Warwick Gurdwara Sahib and i am nobody to defend every allegation that is fired its way. Utterly disappointed with your attitude and i would physically walk away from you if you were to say this to my face, as i believe you are full of negativity with your accusations. God Bless you Brother, i hope you achieve everything you want to in life, our paths may cross, but i will wont wish for it anytime soon.

    Proper funny you are calling me a pakora, does that make you a samosa?! I can say what I want and what I said is based on the truth. Yeah fair play leam got the dharam seva lot who i believe majority were moneh, but that doesnt excuse your pathetic commitee at the Gurdwara. Same commitee who wanted to build a bar on the Gurdwara site, same jokers who told Jathedar Daduwal that he cannot mention Khalistan, or speak against drinking on 'their stage', same clowns who tried extorting money for Sikhi classes (to pay for electric LOL) and same bunch who majority are moneh and sessionheads. this gurdwara is also used a hotbed for interfaith marriages despite the Hukamnama from Akal Takht Sahib. Oh and its run by mota sio the buddy of mass butcherer sumedh saini. get you head out of the clouds, leam and warwick aint nothing to be proud of, most the girls are shacked up with goreh or kaleh, there is hardly any keshdhari lads and then you got the old wana be gangstas who cant do anything in leamington let alone anywhere else. in terms of size and population, leam warwick are a pure besti area for apneh.

    Fun fact: Pakistan launched a satellite a while ago and received images of water so they launched reports saying that they discovered water on mars, the whole of Pakistan was proud until it was later found that the satellite didn't even leave earth and was roaming around in the Arabian Sea. i don't have much hope from India either, seeing as this is the level of expertise we got in that part of the world lol

    Pen Jee, the words above are not mine, rather the words of Guru Arjun Dev Maharaj, Wahiguru Akal Purukh Himself. Please have no doubt in them. You see, by His Bachan, even stones are ferried across, so what to say about us hopeless, weak, and heavy sinners. When you do His Simran, just dissolve yourself in it, that is the correct method, then you shall see for yourself, how His kirpa embraces and protects you at all times and places. He will be "ang sang" with you, then who will dare to trouble you? Not even Kal Purukh, nor his yam doots, neither mind nor the chors. All these are the summary of darkness, and if one is in the presence of the fountain of all Jot, namely Wahiguru, naturally darkness, can never ever be there, it is only when we turn our backs to Him, that the darkness surrounds us. That is why, the Bani says to do His simran/bhakti, aath pahaer, while walking, working, waiting, eating, drinking...at all times, as much s possible, for we have to drown the mind deep into His Simran, then only will the mind be purified from all its impurities. Prabh Ka Simran man kee mael jaae. God bless you. Sat Sree Akal.

    500 years out of which we were reduced to only 20% Once and had continuous strife and hiccups for at least 400 years from 47until now we have gone from about 8 million to about 30 million so not too bad... christianity only increased because of Romans mass conversions then their previous empire was converted anew via stealth to reap tributes through the Catholic Church , Titheing was supposed to be a langar style sharing of blessings but was made into a money thing. Muslim faith was also spread by sword after forgiving the unforgivable and rewarding adharam was promised to them by Mohammed (those who created the hadith quran that's used today) 1400 years of slaying and invading will get you far. Don't worry halemi raj is promised in Guru ji's bachan and it will come...

    Pen Jee it is indeed very good what you do by doing Nitnem. But if you or anyone wants to get rid of the panj chor, try what Guru Jee is telling us in His following verse: ਰਸਨਾ ਸਚਾ ਸਿਮਰੀਐ ਮਨੁ ਤਨੁ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਹੋਇ ॥ Rasanaa Sachaa Simareeai Man Than Niramal Hoe || With your tongue, repeat the True Name, and your mind and body shall become pure. Sri Raag, Guru Arjan Dev. *Guru Jee says: if you repeat His Name, the panj chor shall be expelled out, as they are deep rooted within, and with the jaap of His Name, they feel very uncomfortable, as they can not stand its purity, so they leave away, only thus we remain cool and peaceful. Though you say, you are affected by three chors, the fact is, the other 2 are still hidden within, it is just a matter of time to be stung by them, so why not spray the perfume of His Name and get rid of all of them for once and forever. Pen Jee, there is no other antidote to fight them, so use the sword of His Name as suggested by Guru Jee, and get rid of these chors. True are His bachans, all other methods are useless. God bless you. Sat Sree Akal.

    Can you please explain what you mean by safety measures that the Gurus have put in place to prevent dogma? Because bani being poetic and musical does not prevent dogma. In fact, in Islam, an Abrahamic relgion, the koran is written in poetic verse. In Christianity, also an Abraham religion, gospels are sung to music. So your argument doesn't exactly hold true here.

    I think this thread has gone off-topic. To wrap up the previous argument on my part, I'll say this, I believe that Sikhi is a rule of principles that need to be followed, and therefore it is dogmatic. Now if any of you would like to argue this further, you or I can either make a separate thread for this. I'm hoping that members on this forum can further criticize and contribute to my list. And then eventually, we can collectively come up with a way to put this list into motion and not just talk. I would like many of the things on this list to happen soon, and I would definitely like to be a part of it. So, any suggestions, ideas, criticisms are welcomed.

    I never said that dogma gives way to freedom, instead I believe dogma and more importantly religion require restraint. Seva is also every Sikh's duty, therefore a principle and dogma of Sikhi. But the Guru's have told us the answers, the truths in a way. They have enabled us to do certain things, and restricted other things through their bani. So I fail to see how is Sikhi not dogmatic. Casteism, idolatry and such are things that have been accepted as false in our religion, and we do not accept as truths. Bani states there is a creator, Waheguru and therefore it is an accepted truth in Sikhi. We as human beings can challenge the existence of a creator, but as Sikhs we cannot, because it has already been accepted by our religion. Also, how does accepting certain truths inhibit us from learning further, learning is not only gaining new knowledge of whether something is a truth or not, but also applying that knowledge in our day-to-day lives. I would say that Sikhi is perhaps the closest to the Abrahamic religions out of the Dharmic religion group, as we have a fixed set of principles that are incontrovertible truths, just like Abrahamic religions.

    Brother, I fail to understand the freedom you talk about. Let me take an example of yours, you said that Khalsa Aid was the kind of parchaar that we needed. I researched into them, and I agreed. I agreed because they put "seva" into practice, and not just preached about it. They became examples of Sikhi in practice. However, the concept of seva is a defined principle in Sikhi: ਸੇਵਾ ਕਰਤ ਹੋਇ ਨਿਹਕਾਮੀ ॥ ਤਿਸ ਕਉ ਹੋਤ ਪਰਾਪਤਿ ਸੁਆਮੀ So, in a way, Khalsa Aid is essentially adhering to the dogma of Sikhi established by the Gurus, and thus Khalsa Aid is dogmatic as well. So when you say total freedom unbridled by dogma, what do you really mean? Please, can youelaborate more, because I have failed to understand what freedom you are talking about.

    Guys, I've been ON and OFF this Forum for years now. Posting and just viewing. As a Brother to you all and i accept you are ALL Brothers and Sisters to me... Please one Beathi...just cut down the Hatred and Cussing. It wouldn't go down well face to face, so lets not do this over the Net either. I'm no preacher, just want us all to have more respect for each other please. My head is bowed down to you all and i respect everyones own opinion. However, i think that the Original Poster is asking for some retaliation by asking these sorts of questions - especially by not expecting some negative response (as we can see). On another note. A completely different subject, but i feel its connected here briefly - we need to be prepared at ALL times. Be prepared to defend any innocent party from evil and wrong doings. I just observe with my eyes and try not to make any judgement on others, but i am seeing "Sikh" guys that are in need of more physical and mental strength. Its a monster of a topic, but i feel we need to be united stronger and allow all the Hatred for one another. Break the barriers between ourselves and lend a hand to one another. Anyways, i may start a new topic. My 2 pence is worth nothing, but i feel i have to say it, especially when i see us arguing and cussing each other. Unity is required and not division.

    A soulful Sufi recital by Abida Parveen. Includes Sufi Bulle Shah Couplets. Lyrics given both in Romanized Punjabi and also in English translations of the verses. In the end, the love for the Supreme Being, makes one enter in a blissful state of ecstasy, be he or she of any dharam, kaum, or mazab... Though this song is of a hindi film, what I find outstanding, is the relation of profound love between a disciple and his master... I wish we all had that depth in our love and sharda in our Guru Jee, that He came runninig to us from Sach Khand, and embrace us, just like in the song Sat Sree Akal.

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPmYJaWdkgEOZrjDljXcpOQ Subscribe to this channel - all live links from PTC Great Sewa from this guy. He also provides Free local numbers for Sangat to call - these will have the live Gurbani streamed on the other end of the call. For example, truck drivers on the road may not have 3G connections, so all they have to do is call that Free number and they will be able to hear The Gurbani from Golden Temple, they can then even play it on loud speaker or Bluetooth through the vehicle etc.

    I can send you a link to a Sewadaar that knew / had this feeling about PTC too. He live streams PTC Gurbani with his own Logos over the top of PTCs, as he also feels PTC are trying to "own" the Gurbani broadcasted from Golden Temple.

    if u cant figure that out for urself then u a (wateva u wanna put in this place). course there nufin wrong wiv muslims singing dharmic songs. there nufin wrong wiv the songs in general as far as im concerned, although im limited to only hearing the small parts theve realised. the prob wiv the tunes is they using sikhi to make money and thats it. these ppl dont care bou doin parchar man, in my opinion they have made the beat clubish beats perposely so that they sell. bare idiots will buy a tune to shake there @ss to. this leaves the door open for these to be played in the club as far as im concerned. RDB better not blast these tunes in clubs man cus they will be sori.

    Maybe I’m an old party pooper, but I have never been a big fan of the dance track samples of dharmic geets. I still struggle to disassociate the drinking, smoking and pulling of the club scene from the dharmic vars. Sikhi in my view does not need promotion on the club dance floor, Maharaj has given us more suitable platforms.

    wjkk wjkf tunes are inspiring, lets hope they do inspire those who l;isten to them. this aint real parchar tho, wat are they doing wiv the profits? do they intend to giv the money to charity? nah man of course not. typical sikhs man, using sikhi to make money. why u think all the tunes sound so bhgangra- ish? bhangra sells man and i can see sum of these tunes being played in a club. lets hope these tunes do inspire tho. i dont give rdb any credit tho, mans jus usings sikhi to make money.

    I just came across a comment not long ago that it's wrong to mix bhangra-type/hip hop-influenced/rap type music with the message of the past shaheedi albums.. and that some people just listen to it for the beat! What do you guys think? So far, I think it's a good way to get a younger audience's attention IF they understand the meaning of it after hearing it too! I was just listening to the earlier albums you see, and most of the songs sounded like instrumentals off rap tunes :wub: Quite disappointed! (Although they do seem to have improved over the years too)
