  1. British Army Examines Plans To Create A Sikh Regiment

    Could I please ask what the source of the above quoted statement is?
  2. Sat Bachan

    I'm assuming that it comes from the tuk in Sukhmani Saheb, "Sat bachan saadhu updesh".

    I think this might be of interest to you. Bhai Gurmeet Singh sentencing.pdf It is the sentencing verdict for all involved in Beanta case.

  5. What Is Your Sewa?

    Love this thread! Very refreshing attitude! Thank you Bhaji!
  6. Ridiculous - Kaur's Swimming In Public

    Waheguruji ka khalsa Waheguruji ki fateh. To start with, it's a "ladies only swimming session!". Even if they were immodest, there wouldn't be any men around. I don't really get what the fuss is about! Secondly, when I go swimming, I wear this http://www.dicandiafashion.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/modest-swimwear-for-women-muslim.jpg Now, if one expects me to wear a burqa, socks, and gloves to prevent anyone seeing any square-inch of my skin, too bad! I ain't doin' that! Also, please let the Kaurs be the judge of what they should or shouldn't be doing! Thank you for the freedom you've granted (!)
  7. Relation Between Atma And Parmatma

They arise from Him and shall merge again in their primal source.(17)(87) The above quote from Sri Akal Ustat (Dasam Bani - 48) explains how 'Aatma' is a part of the 'Param-aatma'. The soul, as compared to God, is like a drop compared to the ocean.The drop, and the ocean, are both water. In the same manner, the soul and God are the same. When one remembers Sri Akaal Purakh ji whilst simran, it's very difficult to confine him into particular roles. With Maharaaj ji's kirpa, Sri Akaal Ustat explains in an extremely vast way about how Akaal Purakh ji is prevading the the universe and the world we live in. Above all of it, He is actually our real self. And it can be very hard to imagine it whilst doing simran if one hasn't yet had the 'darshan' of the real self. In my humble opinion, the easiest way of remembering Him whilst simran would be the Guru's role He's playing for us! To plead to Him, the Guru, to show us the real self, to show us the right path, to help us across the way, ....all of it can only be done by the Guru. And we sikhs are utmost blessed that Sri Waheguru ji is our Guru Himself!

  8. Dilgeer Warping Sikhi Again

    I don't think excommunication means anything to them any more. Moreover, there are still many Gurdwara sahebs where Darshan Ragi and crew are cordially invited. If excommunication would've meant anything, people who invite the excommunicated, would've had to respond to Sri Akaal Takhat Saheb. But nothing ever happens. I think that, to be excommunicated from the panth, has lost its meaning.
  9. Childhood :)

    Omg! I did that! And thought I was nuts because no one else around me ever did it! LOL! I;m SO happy to know someone else's brain worked in a weird way like mine did! :D
  10. Shameless Punjabi Actress

    Dear Bhaji, I don't think that attacking someone personally is a solution to whatever is being discussed. I understand that it might be annoying for you to constantly have someone with a different viewpoint, but it's not very nice to say something like that to people. Whatever the problem or issue might be, let's just discuss it with love and mutual understanding along with acceptance of different viewpoints. I hope you wouldn't mind me have said so, but I just couldn't keep myself from speaking up. Also, I agree with you that such distortion of the body is not Gurmatt. The body is meant to be kept as a sacred temple for the soul within. I'm also wondering whether tattoos have any subtle-effects on the other subtle bodies we have...
  11. Daughter Killed For Her Organs...

    Would you know what time?
  12. Not to forget the names of the programmes that do not match the actual programme being run!
  13. Struggling with makeup/ jewellery

    Listen to what your inner voice says. Try to stay away from make up...very bad for your skin. About jewellery... if the voice in your head says that you can show off your money by wearing expensive jewellery...or anything indicating 'kaam'... refrain yourself. Be honest to yourself. But if it's only meant to be for accessorising etc. go for it. Don't make it so hard for yourselves that you might start hating rehat. Remember, it's only a phase...and after a while you might simply get over it when you've had enough!

    Without reading Gurbani, one cannot progress. Be it even at least Mool mantar...but one has to be reciting Gurbani apart from Waheguru Gurmantar simran.
  15. Where did he get his education from?

    hahahahahahahaha Made my day! :areyouhappy:
  16. I'm sorry about the constant editting, Bhaji. The reason why I removed this bit is because I realised that the book isn't really the issue anymore (still waiting to find out whether it's still in market or not)...but that why had Day and Night news uploaded an old video to spark the issue now? After the apologies etc. are done.... This actually is a dead issue in India. No wonder Sangat tv hasn't ever broadcast this interview because it's even before they started re-broadcasting Day and Night new's broadcasts!! It seems the couple of users like Dasamsarblohgranth who had guessed that it was all about politics were right all along!!!!
  17. Jap Ji Sahib Vishraam

    Following is a pdf of Japji saheb vishraams according to Sant Giani Kartar Singh Ji's audio of Japji Saheb. Jap Ji Sahib Vishraam By P.pdf
  18. Dear Bhaji, The video has been uploaded on youtube on the 15th of March, 2013. The heading for the video says that it's been broadcast on the 16th of March, 2013. Could you please help find out when the actual date of broadcast was? The reason behind my doubt about the time-frame is because we've been on the phone with Baba Hari Singh ji Randhawa and Baba Lakhbir Singh ji Ratwara Saheb about the matter. Baba Hari Singh ji told us that there has been quite an outcry about this issue on stages in India and that it was all SGPC President's fault. Apparently, SGPC's even apologised about it MORE THAN A YEAR AGO!!!! This does seem to be a political dirty-business! Baba Lakhbir Singh ji asked us to get back to him tomorrow evening to get the updated news.
  19. I don't quite get this bit fully : "if it is a properly functioning democracy’ the article states." Will it be decided by the UN or will it be done according to the Indian constitution? How will it be decided that India is a dysfunctional democracy? Also, will the U.K. really ever put the criticism of some other country before its own economy? Why would they choose criticism over trade links?
  20. Doubt on getting Naam Jugti - Reru Sahib Mahapursh Updesh

    Dear Bhaji, I double-checked with Mahan-kosh about the meaning of 'Rom'. It is indeed 'hair'. Bhaji, I don't think that distorting the meanings of words, merely to simplify them for the "common pendu" would be the right approach either. 'Rom' is still a relatively simpler word than Sehaskriti de salok.
