  1. Bhai Lalo's Country?

    I think you are correct. I am looking at other maps than I did before of the Delhi Sultanate and I think you are right. Thanks for helping me. Guru Ji saw that Malik Bhago was exploiting the labor of Bhai Lalo. I wanted to know which country this occured in so I could study its economy and see how such exploitation may fit into modern-day economics.
  2. Bhai Lalo's Country?

    I'm sure most of you know the story of Bhai Lalo and living by honest means. I am trying to figure out which historical country it all occurred in, because I want to study the economy there (since Guru Nanak ji identified that Malik Bhago exploited Bhai Lalo's labour). This event occurred in Guruji's first udhasi, so it occurred between 1500-1506 in Saidpur (modern-day Eminabad, Pakistan). It couldn't have been part of the Mughal Empire since that didn't exist until ~20 years later. Can any of you figure out which historical country this took place in, because I'm lost?

  4. American Sikh Political Poll

    That's why I support Gary Johnson from the Libertarian Party.
  5. American Sikh Political Poll

    Good advice. This file is clean though, just ask those that have taken it. Great! Thanks!
  6. American Sikh Political Poll

    Thanks for the heads up. It seems I have fixed that now. Let me know about any future problems. By the way, the link in the title for whatever reason isn't cooperating, but the one in the text works fine.
  7. American Sikh Political Poll

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Hi, I'm Bhagat Singh. Using Google Forms, I have created a poll to obtain data on the political affiliations and favorite political candidates of Sikhs living in the United States. This data is for my own personal research due to my curiosity, and I would love to share it with you as well. Studying politics is a big pastime of mine, and so I am quite curious on the direction my fellow American Sikhs would like to see the country going. I have brought up American politics twice on this forum already, but this time I ask you to please (if you don't mind) take my short, three-question poll. Once you take the poll, there is a link that leads you to a summary of the data thus far, so you can see the responses right away. This poll will be closing on 7/20/16, and I will then post the results into this post. Thank you in advance for voting in my poll! Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

  8. Worshipping Gurus?

    But how can a droplet of water merged into the ocean be viewed as any different than any other portion of water in it? How can one portion of water be Nanak and another portion be Ravidas. It's all Waheguru, without lines or distinctions, purely one, right?
  9. Worshipping Gurus?

    Ok thanks! It makes sense now.
  10. Worshipping Gurus?

    But why do we not worship Bhagat Kabir, Bhagat Ramanand, or Sheikh Farid Ji. They were both merged with God and they taught gurmat principles. What makes our gurus distinguished enough to be worshipped?
  11. Worshipping Gurus?

    Why do we worship the gurus? I know some don't worship the gurus, but many puraatan singhs do and have told me its the way the gurus set. Why?? I thought the guru was the means of liberation, not the end.
  12. Original Colours Of Khalsa

    According to the rehatnama of Bhai Daya Singh (http://sarbattkhalsa.weebly.com/bhai-daya-singh-ji-rehatnama.html): ਸੋ ਅਕਾਲੀ ਰੂਪ ਹੈ ਨੀਲ ਬਸਤ੍ਰ ਧਹਿਰਾਇ Thus is the Akaalis form, he wears blue clothes. ਜਪੇ ਜਾਪ ਗੁਰਬਰ ਅਕਾਲ ਸਰਬਲੋਹ ਪਹਿਰਾਇ | Contemplating the Gurbar Akaal, keeping of iron weapons. ਸਰਬ ਲੋਹ ਚਕ੍ਰ ਕਰਦ ਛੱਲਾਦਿ He keeps all iron chakars (discs) and karads (daggers) ਬੀਧੇ ਕਾਨ ਨਾ ਨਾਕ ਕੋ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਮ੍ਰਿਜਾਦ | Do not pierce the ears or nose, this is the Satgurus wish ਪੰਜ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਧਰ ਦੇਹ ਪੈ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾਨ ਗਾਤਰੇ ਰਾਖ Wearing 5 weapons on the body, keeping a sword in the gatra. ਕਰਦ ਭੇਟ ਬਿਨ ਪਾਨ ਨਹ‌ਿ ਅਕਾਲ ਭਾਵ ਸਤ ਭਾਖ | Without the dagger touching the food, he does not eat, he contemplates Akaal (the immortal) or Sat (the truth). ਸੁਰ੍ਮਾਦਿਕ ਸ਼ਿੰਗਾਰ ਨਹ‌ਿ ਨਹ‌ਿ ਪਰ ਤਰੁਨੀ ਸੰਗ All forms of makeup and the relationship with anothers wife, he forsakes. ਯਥਾਰਥ ਇਸਤਰੀ ਤ੍ਯਾਗ ਨਹ‌ਿੰ ਗੁਰ੍ਕੋ ਧਿਆਨ ਅਭੰਗ | He does not forsake woman altogether (his own wife), always remaining focused on the Guru. ਪਾਤਰ ਸਰਬ ਲੋਹ ਕੇ ਭੁਗਤੇ ਅਸਨ ਸੁਆਦ In dishes of all iron he should eat with pleasure. ਲੱਕੜੀ ਕੋ ਭੋਜਨ ਭਖੇ ਨੀਲ ਬਸਤ੍ਰ ਮਿਰਜਾਦ | He cooks his food with fire wood, wearing blue clothes is the tradition. ਕਛ ਸ੍ਵੇਤ ਔ ਨੀਲ ਪਟ ਜਪ ਅਰ ਜਾਪੁ ਉਚਾਰ **White kachhera**, blue clothes, he recites Jap Ji Sahib and Jaap Sahib. ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ ਉਸਤਤ ਕਰੇ ਚੰਡੀ ਕੰਠ ਸੁਧਾਰ | Recite Sri Akaal Ustat, memorise Chandi Di Vaar. ਰੋਮ ਬਸੰ ਤਨ ਮੈਂ ਕ੍ਰਿਯਾ ਪਿੰਡ ਕਰਮ ਕੋ ਤ੍ਯਾਗ | The hair resides on the body, forsake cutting it. ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਮੈਂ ਪ੍ਰੀਤ ਕਰ ਪੰਚ ਜਨਨ ਤੇ ਭਾਗ | Have love for the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, run from the 5 vices (Lust, Anger, Greed, Attachment, and Ego). ਮੜ੍ਹੀ ਦੇਵ ਗੋਰਲ ਤਜੈ ਔਰ ਨ ਪੰਥ ਪੁਜਵਾਇ Memorials, Hindu temples, graves he forsakes.

Do not abandon the home. ਬਿਨ ਬਿਵਾਹੀ ਨ ਸੇਜ ਰਮ ਤਿਸ ਸਦ ਧਰਮ ਸਹਾਇ | Without marriage, he does not take a women to bed. To her he shall always be faithful. ਫੂਕ ਨ ਬੂਈਏ ਦੀਨ ਕੌ ਗੁਰ ਸੋ ਕਪੱਟ ਨ ਕੀਨ With his breathe he does not put out a light. Never be deceitful to the Guru. ਅਗਨਿ ਨਾ ਬੁਝਈ ਜੂਠ ਜਲ ਤੋ ਸੁਖ ਜਗ ਮੈ ਲੀਨ | Do not put out a fire with previously used water (jootha water), thus get comfort in this. ਵੈਸਾਖੀ ਦੀਪਮਾਲਾ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਸਰ ਕਰੇ ਹੋਲਾ ਅਨੰਦਪੁਰ ਕਰੇ On Vaisakhi he lights the light at Amritsar, celebrate Hola (Mohalla) at Anandpur. ਅਬਚਲ ਨਗਰ ਜਾਇ ਕੁਲ ਸੰਬੂਹ ਤਰੇ | His lineage will be saved by visiting Abchal Nagar (Sri Hazoor Sahib). ਰਹਿਤ ਰਹਤ ਸਮ ਸਿਖ ਜੋ ਸੋ ਮੇਰੋ ਰੂਪਾਇ He who lives according the the code of conduct is my very form. ਵਾ ਮੈ ਮੋ ਮੈਂ ਭੇਦ ਨਹਿ ਮਮ ਸਰੂਪ ਹੁਇ ਜਾਇ | Between him and myself, there is no difference. He has become my form. - Now, I'm not sure the actual reason behind this, why it must be white. (This may help: https://www.3ho.org/3ho-lifestyle/daily-routine/wearing-white) But Guru Sahib does give the hukam of wearing blue clothing, a tall blue turban, and a white kachera, and no other colour than that. This discipline is only neccesary for amritdhari sikhs, as it is the khalsa roop.

    Alrighty. Thanks for all the help bhai sahib!
  14. Kirtan Instruments

    I have a MIDI keyboard with a harmonium sound and it sounds semi realistic. But maybe that won't work? Not sure. What do you think?
  15. Kirtan Instruments

    Could it be done with a piano or keyboard?
