  3. 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!

  4. 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?

  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. Kirpan Di Amrit?

    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?
  13. 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.

  14. Wjkk wjkf Does any sang at have any info re Baba Harjit Singh. Diwan videos very inspirational but would like background info
  15. 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).
  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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)?
  19. 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.

  21. waheguru ji khalsa waheguru ji fateh how do you enjoy life things for a sikh like sports, career pursuits, watching tv shows, video games etc. I know that guru ji told us to live in the world but still stay detached with they world,. Like i don't think it's possible unless you a high spiritual level or guru ji does direct kirpa on you right? Are sikhs suppose to enjoy comforts of living in the world like tasty food, a house, car etc Doesn't these things take you away from Waheguru. How can you have any desire becuase were there is desire there can be no naam or love for waheguru you cant have maya and naam. Even if you don't indulge in comforts once you take a little posion of maya you want more right?\ My personal experience a a common sikh living in this world. It seems to be they more simran/nitenm/bani/sangat/kirtan/katha we do they better protected we are from maya but for me personal it is like maya always's win like i will win more a bit mabye few week's/months then one day i will get bad swear at someone, or get kaam out of no where. it seem's like it's a huge up hill battle were your chances of wining are low 1% and maya 99% is wining most of they world right now. Seem's like unless you get lucky with guru ji kirpa you cant really do anything you can try but that's it? Like i know i am not the best sikh out there, i try to wake up for amrit vela, try to fix my sleep had sleep problems still have they but trying to fix. i use to sleep at 4am or 5am which is really bad now i try to sleep at 10 or 11pm. When i do wake up at amrit vela only way i have done it is staying awake whole night then do some of nitenm like 2 bani then some mool mantar and simran. Yes i am amrithdahri ( if you mean i have been given amrit in amrit sanchar) then yes. i am definitely not being a sikh of the sat guru according to sir guru granth sahib. they most i could say is i am trying to become a sikh of a guru and i am a one that keeps failing at it too. One thing i have noticed in my life is i do thing's in extreme no matter what it is either i do it alot everyday or i just give up so easily. Seems like i dont have courage/determination etc to keep going some times. worldly things or spiritual things, seem's like i dont have the capability to stay balanced and do things slowly and consistently. They only thing that seem;s to help is simran and nitenm but eventually i stop doing that and then they cycle repeats its self. Here is my cycle which i think i am in i will eventually realise to start doing bhagti from get inspiration from youtuber like basics of sikhi, stories of sikh's, sant's of sikhism etc which gives me courage to start doing some simran/nitem, then i start waking up at amrit vela after much effort from simran and nitnem slowy i start doing all of nitnem and an 1hour simran/moolmantar. Then i start doing sangat at gurdwara once a week then twice a week there was a point were i went to gurdwara everyday at amrit vela for 2-3 hours doing simran /nitnem, then i also started doing seva at the langar a few days then eventually every day. only time which i wasnt doing bhagti was when i was school other then that every other time i had was doing bhagti except for sleeping of course. It got to a point when i didnt care about anything but getting the anhand from bhagti they peace and bliss was so much that i was addicted to it and just wanted to drink it night and day and do nothing else.. so i kept this about for a 1 month then one day i stoped i think i was really exhusted from that day from school and felt tried, then i was stitting on computer then a thought came about kaam in i ignored at first then eventually give in and watched bad videos' etc and touch my self. i was so sad/angry saying why i had do that and ruin all they hard work i had done, it seemed like i made a wall to protect my self but it was destroyed in a instantly by kaam. This cycle has repeating it's self for 4-5 years now, but it getting hard to keep getting up from the attacks and it seem's every time i get up and fall i fall further down the deep pit of maya, its like 1 step forward to guru then 1000 steps back for failure. I dont know anything else to do then do simran/nitnem and follow guru teaching's even though i keep failing there is one thing i have kept saying to my self that one day i will get up and wont fall again wonder if that day will ever come or not. I just hope guru ji know's i am trying to reach him. I also believe that atlest i am trying to get back up most people dont even know about this path and how straight it is to Waheguru and simple. waheguru ji khalsa waheguru ji fateh
  22. Part II of Tisarpanth's Misconceptions Series. Here two main misconceptions are answered: 1.) Sikhi survived due to the sole efforts of the Jats and, 2.) Sikhi was a reaction against contemporary economics. To quote a few portions: 'Sikh history, and tradition, substantiates that no lapse was ever tolerated from the faith’s ideology. The names of Baba Atal Rai and Baba Ram Rai are only some of the many examples which depict the penalties imposed upon those who, for one reason or another, deviated from established norms. The former resurrected a victim of snakebite and was so sternly reprimanded by his father, the sixth Guru, that he discarded his mortal frame whilst the latter intentionally changed a line of Gurbani and was excommunicated by his own father, the seventh Guru. Summarily we can easily conclude then that it is impossible to assert that the sixth Guru who was more than satisfied to witness his own son’s demise, but could not tolerate any deviation from the faith’s ideology would concede to any demands made by the Jats.' 'Non-Sikh records mention the respect with which the Sikhs treated women, even extending courtesy and safety to those who were of their sworn foes. (19) If compared with Jat practices, historic and present, than these contrast starkly as the Jat objectification of women is a well known fact. Secondly, the Sikh ability to unite in face of a common threat historically is a well-established fact. This principle emerged out of two factors namely a channeling of all energies towards achieving a singular goal, and a singular interpretation of the faith. The Jats were and still are avid worshipers of Jatheras or shrines dedicated to some Sisyphean ancestor(s). (20) With each locality, tribe, clan, village espousing a different ancestor any ideological unity and singular channeling of energy is impossible. The establishment of Bharatpur can only be called a miracle as the Jat unity forged for it’s establishment soon disintegrated afterwards.' https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/2016/04/24/misconceptions-ii/
