  1. Sarbat Khalsa appointed Jathedars announce to initiate anti-drug pilgrimage in Punjab By Sikh24 Editors - August 7, 2016 TARN TARAN, Punjab—As per directions of Jathedar of Sri Akal Takht Bhai Jagtar Singh Hawara, the Sarbat Khalsa appointed Jathedars have announced to initiate an anti-drug pilgrimage across Punjab to encourage the youth towards Sikhi. The pilgrimage will start from Sri Fatehgarh Sahib on August 16 and will cover almost all major towns of Punjab during a month long program scheduled to be end on September 15 at Sri Anandpur Sahib. Addressing the media at Gurdwara Sahib of Rasulpur (Tarn Taran), interim Jathedar Dhian Singh Mand said that drugs and superstitions have engulfed the sacred land of Punjab. “Youth of Punjab was diverting towards drugs and there is no scope of improvement in dirty politics of Punjab,” he told Sikh24. “Along with political parties, the SGPC is also fully responsible for the worst condition of Punjab,” Bhai Mand said. “We are carrying out this program as per directions of Jathedar Jagtar Singh Hawara who is keen to encourage youth of Punjab towards Sikhi. This month long pilgrimage for preachment of Sikhi is being started as per his directions,” he said. He added that 6 stages are scheduled to be organized during the daily program in which renowned Dhadis, Kavishars and Kirtanis will address the religious discourse to the masses. Jathedar Dhian Singh mand has appealed the Sikh institutions to extend support in this pilgrimage. Detail of the pilgrimage is as follow: August 16, 2016 – Fatehgarh Sahib August 17, 2016 – Khanna August 18, 2016 – Patiala August 19, 2016 – Sangrur August 21, 2016 – Mansa August 22, 2016 – Barnala August 23, 2016 – Bathinda August 24, 2016 – Faridkot August 26, 2016 – Mukatsar Sahib August 27, 2016 – Fazilka August 28, 2016 – Ferozepur August 29, 2016 – Moga August 30, 2016 – Jagrawan August 31, 2016 – Ludhiana September 2, 2016 – Nawanshehar September 3, 2016 – Hoshiarpur September 4, 2016 – Pathankot September 5, 2016 – Gurdaspur September 6, 2016 – Batala September 7, 2016 – Sri Amritsar Sahib September 9, 2016 – Patti September 10, 2016 – Tarn Taran September 11, 2016 – Kapurthala September 12, 2016 – Jalandhar September 13, 2016 – Mohali September 14, 2016 – Ropar September 15, 2016 – Sri Anandpur Sahib Jathedar Baljit Singh Daduwal, Bhai Mohkam Singh (President, United Akali Dal), Bhai Satnam Singh Manawa, Bhai Sikandar Singh Warana, Baba Bira Singh Kar Sewa Wale, Baba Pritpal Singh Rasulpur, Baba Sahib Singh Gujjarpura, Baba Harpal Singh Baler, Baba Sawinder Singh Chohla Sahib, Bhai Balwant Singh Gopala, Bhai Baljit Singh patti, Baba L;akhwinder Singh Jaura, Bhai Harpal Singh Warana and others were present on this occasion. https://www.sikh24.com/2016/08/07/sarbat-khalsa-appointed-jathedars-announce-to-initiate-anti-drug-pilgrimage-in-punjab/#.V7NgMffD_qA Daas honestly thinks it's the 40% of the Non-Sikhs taking Drugs in Punjab especially since 40% of Punjab is on drugs, according to the demographics.
  2. Were Sant Baba Atar Singh Ji Reru Sahibwale and Sant Baba Atar Singh Ji Mastuana the same person?
  3. The Pokemon Go App has come under fire for labelling Gurdwaras as mosques. As many people will be well aware Gurdwara is the holy place of worship for Sikhs and mosques are of course attended by Muslims. The hugely popular new reality game uses GPS and allows players to search locations in the real world to find virtual little creatures. This embarrassing error was pointed out by the team at the Sikh Press Association this week. http://m.asianimage.co.uk/news/14679250.Pokemon_Go_labels_Sikh_Gurdwara_as_mosque/ Whether or not we should even be playing this game is a different concept, (most people Daas knows play it).
  4. Fateh I have been wondering for a long time whether we are destined to be married to someone in Sikhism. Has waheguru set out our lifeemail partner when we are born. Is it OK to ask waheguru what kind of partner we want. Please reply to what waheguru says. I know that it says about 2 bodies and one soul of husband and wife.
  5. Let's organise parchaar of our faith. What draws people to Sikhism from other faiths? Why do so many Christians leave their faith and are disilusioned with it? It's because they don't like that way the religion is a missonary religion. They don't agree with the concept that anyone who does not accept the gospel will go to hell. What people love about Sikhism and one of its biggest attractions to concerts is our love for non believers. We don't care what religion anybody is we treat them the same. This is what draws others to our faith. This I the biggest pull factor. We must concentrate on this when doing parchaar. That is the single most poweful concept. We don't belive that we are some exclusive club were everyone part from us will go to hell. This is the biggest turn off for many as Muslims and chriatiians. They know it's a fact concept and quite funny and absurd. That everyone else is going to a fall fire.
  6. I was wondering if any Amritdhari Sikhs have ever visited Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles and if they have were they told to remove their Kirpans? And if you were, were you detained and not allowed entry? Lastly were you patted down? Dhanvaad.

  9. 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!

  10. I wanted to know why many manmukhs just started the hatred towards Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji's bani? (What is it with these people?) Many Mahapurukhs from a variety of Jathas followed Guru Sahib to the end, and know many Pakhands are getting popular for denouncing Guru Sahib, when was that the direction people were going?

  13. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! This is the first main time Gursikhs are going to the Gurmukh Akal Takht, while the other thing, (not a Takht) goes around pretending like they have authority. https://www.sikh24.com/2016/06/08/sikhs-approach-sk-jathedars-regarding-virginia-amrit-sanchar-giani-gurbachan-singh-excommunicates-granthi-and-associates/#.V2hNC_fD_qA
  14. The reason I am asking this is because in that much time for other religions they got so much done. Christianity got Europe; Islam in 500 years got Arabia. Bhudhism in 500 years was very well spread out into southeastern Asia and Japan. So if these religions got so much in 500 years, why have we failed as followers of the highest Guru to even get outside of Punjab? Our Gurus aren't lower than these are other men!
  15. This is for those who may be interested, I have had the opportunity to write a number of books recently, initially they were for sponsors of the podcasts but due to demand I have decided to put some of them out on a self publication site. Slowly they will increase in number with the Sarkutavali Teeka and Gagar Cho sagar also being added in June and August respetively. At the moment there are three books available to purchase which are the 'Sahaskriti and Gatha Teeka by Mahant Ganesha Singh', 'Matra by Baba Sri Chand Ji' and 'The Jap Ji Sahib Katha 01 - Mul Mantra Katha by Sant Gurbachan Singh Bhindrawale' They are all on the following link https://www.lulu.com/shop/search.ep?contributorId=1393200 Thank you, and just so you anyone is aware there is no profit for these books as they all go back into the Sikhism in Snippits podcast
  16. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! The article talks about how some Singh used his Dastar to save something. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/sikh-man-uses-turban-to-save-dog-from-drowning-india-canal-a7067391.html Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  17. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Recently I was seeing something related to Sikhi, just to see what many people actually thought, and I noticed a lot of false information about Sikhs in general, (especially some of whom called themselves Sikhs), a lot of it had to do with Hinduism surprisingly. Why is education for Sikhi this awful? (Do the Pracharks in India not do anything?) Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  18. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, can anyone explain to me why the idea of Kirpan Di Amrit started? It seems like manmat since Guru Sahib has only ever made 1 Amrit which was previously Charan Amrit and now Khandi Di Pahul?
  19. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, recently on my blog I made a 3 part to Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji's Shaheedi and the importance of it, hopefully it will help someone learn something new. Part 1:Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji Shaheedi Part 1 Of 3 - Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh Part 2:Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji Shaheedi Part 2 Of 3 - Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh Part 3:Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji Shaheedi Part 3 Of 3 - Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh
  20. Wjkk wjkf Does any sang at have any info re Baba Harjit Singh. Diwan videos very inspirational but would like background info
  21. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Recently as I have been trying to stay on an Amrit Vela, I've felt some sleep problems, (before I was trying to start the routine, I hadn't been a strong person in GurSikhi, also having some strong-minor withdrawal symptoms of previous kaam problems), I want to know if anyone else has this a problem getting to sleep at night, while trying to wake-up early in the morning, and what I can do, (With Gur-prassad of course), to hopefully sleep at the night and be capable of Waking-up early at Amrit Vela, (sometimes I can't sleep until 12 A.M.) Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! (It sometimes makes me feel weak that I can't wake-up early because of sleeping too late).
  22. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Why didn't the "Low-Caste" people in India become Sikh, especially with the values of equality and many other things within the path of Gurmat that wasn't in Hinduism or Islam, (especially with the whole superiority complex in both religions, with Indian Muslims considered less than Arab Muslims and Low-Caste Hindus being considered lower caste than Brahman Hindus?) What I'm trying to understand is why these people would just stay being treated like dogs and animals rather than accept Gurmat, (which has complete equality). There were clearly some who did become Sikhs though like the Vanjarias, and others; but there are still more low-caste Hindus than there are Brahmans. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  23. http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-news-india/golden-temple-priest-prakash-singh-badal-punjab-cm-2833052/ hopefully there will be more GurSikhs following and not allow Pakhand to happen anymore!
  24. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! I wanted to know why some people wear Kalgis on their wedding day, also a side-question; why shouldn't we wear a Kalgi if we are children of Guru Sahib, (since he's the highest king, and Kalgi is a sign of royalty)?
  25. I would like to bring up an important and very relevant topic, domestic violence against Sikh women. My story- I am a Sikh woman and was beaten up really badly by a relative. I have since cut this relative out of my life completely, I have finished with them. My only regret is that I didn't send this monster to jail and believe that my weakness was shown in how i reacted to the situation, the loser walked free and I was the one who suffered and I moved out of the house without a degree or good job. To top it off, I am now being told by women of my generation (30 and younger) and also older women that I should associate with the loser, as its okay for relatives to do this and that they have all been beaten up by a male relative or spouse, and how will I get married, I need that relative and that my inlaws wont want a girl who doesn't associate with that relative blah blah blah lol! I am actually finding this all very weird as we are taught to be strong Sikh women like my hero Mai Bhago, who I believe would have beaten the crap out of any man who hit her in self defence or at the very least had them locked up, and yet Sikh women, even of my generation are being beaten by male relatives and alot are been beaten by their husbands at a young age. These are girls and women who are born and bought up in the UK. I am of the belief that Indian culture has eclipsed Sikhism so much that women now act like Muslims, living in the fear of men, of what men think of them and judge them to be, feeling that domestic violence is okay, that a slap or punch now and again is fine, and that equality for the most part is non existant. It may sound like feminist rubbish to some, but in reality, it is simply the Truth. I think that joining sikh womens organisations may help spread awareness that this isn't okay as alot of our mothers, grandmothers and sisters try and make us believe, but is completely unacceptable and should be dealt with accordingly. This would help safeguard the next generation of girls and women and teach them how to react in such situations. I was nowhere near ready when it happened to me and would have appreciated some sikh help.
