  1. Guru Nanak Dev Ji - Aarti

    Did any one from this forum go to see it? I had went to watch it. Outside the cinema there was a handful of our brothers outside, trying to deter everyone from watching it... From what they had been told, and telling people was false. First of all, there was not an actor playing Satguru Nanak Dev Ji, it was an animated light. The movie was a collection of sakhia narrated and relived through the eyes of bhai mardana ji. It highlighted Satguru ji's messages to the world... the cinematography was awesome. The soundtrack was gurbani shabad kirtan. I still listen to it, and the version of the aarti mentioned above I find blissful. Okay, I can see the issue with actors/actress playing certain roles. But if you think with an open mind, its the first time someone has made a movie about Guru Nanak Dev Ji and put on it a worldwide level platform. A part from jesus christ, I don't think I've seen a movie of that calibre about any other faith. To me and what I have understood from gurujis teachings. Everything is temporary, and death is a reality. everything turns back into dust... the only thing that is true and constant is Waheguru! If we look at the world and history, people have argued about what jesus had looked like. Have these people listened and learnt from the bible?! I've heard people say about guru jis painting, this is the real roop of guruji (not too sure if was at gurudwara sisganj or bangla sahib) - But from my understanding, the body is a vessel and is temporary. I have not read or seen anywhere to worship the gurus processions and artefacts. Don't get me wrong when I see such items and shastars I bow my head out of respect as it had belonged to gurus. but the gurus have never said worshp them or material things. I saw the movie as re asserting what we have been taught. some of the core sikhi principles. It was a reminder of the love and greatness of guru nanak dev ji. Being an introvert and one who doesn't know how to express himself well, what I'm trying to say is if we look beyond the material things and try to understand on an open and deeper platform, maybe one day those seeking salvation will be blessed. I think it all starts with being humane with a combination of understanding what has been said in the bani and practicing it. Forgive me if I had said anything wrong. I'm still learning. I've joined this forum to learn through expressing my views. kindly correct me and help me understand if you disagree
  2. Faith in wisdom contained in Guru sahib

    I agree, I believe faith and knowledge goes hand in hand. If you believe, have faith or do any paath, its important to understand the meaning, the purpose, the message which we are blessed with. This is an issue with the world and religions across the world. I am grateful for organisations such has basics of sikhi and others organisations which break down and help us all to understand the teachings, paath within our guru granth sahib ji.
  3. Is amritvela necessary

    @harsharan000 well said!!
  4. AWESOME naam jap tips

    Thank you. It's nice when people share knowledge and help development of others.
  5. Barsi of 2 great mahapurakhs

    I am very sorry but am very sceptical of sants. The knowledge they may give, I am grateful - I guess it's when people put them on a platform and they allow it. I'm sorry if I may offend anyone. I'm still learning everyday.
  6. Finding it hard to be a sikh!

    Sewa is very humbling and blissful
  7. Finding it hard to be a sikh!

    I see spirituality as a rollercoaster, you will have those times. I sure they are all tests. But just don't give up. Start in small doses, build it up again. Whether I have those times or not, I still talk to waheguru ji as a best friend, or parent or try think of waheguruji in whatever I do. I guess it's about developing that pure unconditional love - just like how Guru ji has for you. Not to become routine but to develop the thirst for god and do path/kirtan/simran.
  8. Baba Vacancy Ders Sirsa

    Jokes aside, it's saddening that it's taken 15years since the victims letter. It's about time the whole world sees the truth with these so called pakhandi babeh. Hope others are exposed such as maharaj trilochan darshan das, that guru maa... there's way too many on the list. WaheguruJi please open everyone's eyes to the truth. Forgive the innocent who have beenn brainwashed and show them the correct path!!!
  9. Words Of Wisdom

    @harsharan000 i miss your words of wisdom posts... hope all is well.
  10. Pakhandi Babas and Gurbani

    It's not just RS, you have other cults out there too. They use gurbani to lure people to fill their pockets. They are leeches, do not follow these so called cults... so called baba trilochan das has even started charging money for prashad. Rebranding Ayurvedic as guru prashadam and sell it to their followers - google it.... People Need to wake up. Faith is a business for these so called pakhadis.
  11. Proof that Satguru Nanak Dev jee met Bhagat Kabeer jee

    Thank you for the awakening. I always have had respect for bhagats. But I know very little. I could be bias as I see Satguru ji as a greater form. Yes I agree, the shabads and writings of bhagats are just a different manifestation of devotion towards waheguru.
  12. Proof that Satguru Nanak Dev jee met Bhagat Kabeer jee

    I don't know much about KabirJi... Maybe a shabad here and there. His poetry is great but can't compare to our true guru. Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
  13. Mata Gurjeet Kaur surviving solely on tea for last 65 years

    Speaking with a gursikh, the reason why some sikhs don't drink tea/coffee is due to caffeine. Caffeine is seen as a aphrodisiac... If that is the case, I can see why one wishes to avoid it. But not entirely sure on this...
  14. Meaning of Hukamnama

    I just googled and pasted the shabad... hope this helps?! ਪਹਿਲ ਪੁਰੀਏ ਪੁੰਡਰਕ ਵਨਾ ॥ Pehil Pureeeae Punddarak Vanaa || पहिल पुरीए पुंडरक वना ॥ First of all, the lotuses bloomed in the woods; 16 ਧਨਾਸਰੀ (ਭ. ਨਾਮਦੇਵ) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੬੯੩ ਪੰ. ੧੬ Raag Dhanaasree Bhagat Namdev Share ਤਾ ਚੇ ਹੰਸਾ ਸਗਲੇ ਜਨਾਂ ॥ Thaa Chae Hansaa Sagalae Janaan || ता चे हंसा सगले जनां ॥ From them, all the swan-souls came into being. 16 ਧਨਾਸਰੀ (ਭ. ਨਾਮਦੇਵ) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੬੯੩ ਪੰ. ੧੬ Raag Dhanaasree Bhagat Namdev Share ਕ੍ਰਿਸ੍ਨਾ ਤੇ ਜਾਨਊ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਚੰਤੀ ਨਾਚਨਾ ॥੧॥ Kirasaa Thae Jaanoo Har Har Naachanthee Naachanaa ||1|| क्रिस्ना ते जानऊ हरि हरि नाचंती नाचना ॥१॥ Know that, through Krishna, the Lord, Har, Har, the dance of creation dances. ||1|| 17 ਧਨਾਸਰੀ (ਭ. ਨਾਮਦੇਵ) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੬੯੩ ਪੰ. ੧੭ Raag Dhanaasree Bhagat Namdev
  15. WJKK WJKF The other week I came across a singing reality programme 'Gavo Sachi Bani' on PTC Channel. I love listening to Kirtan, so I enjoyed watching it and then it hit me. It's a kirtan competition!!! Are our gursikhs doing Kirtan for the wrong reasons? Ego? Name? Status? I understand competitions/reality programmes may be used as a way to bring in the youth. There's a fine line.... But surely if we focus on educating humanity of the meaning and understanding of each shabad, wouldn't that itself bring in Sikh youth? As a person, I am very open minded and liberal. As a Sikh, I don't do our daily nitnem, a bit of naam simran here and there. I do try to focus on being humane... I have joined this forum, like yourselves to learn and educate myself. Maybe Satguru ji will bless me with the thirst of doing paath everyday... Before I get carried away typing every thought... Back to topic, are we using Shabad Kirtan not as a method to unite us with akaal purak but making us slaves to our vices?! Forgive me if I have said anything wrong. I'm here to learn. Students make mistakes.
