  1. WJKK WJKF For those who don't know, Balbir Bazighar is one of the "Jathedars" (quotations because he is fake) for Budha Dal. Budha Dal is currenty split into three. The true Jathedar, accoring to maryada, Akaali Baba Prem Singh The one who is believed to be the Jathedar, after Sangat didn't want Balbir to be Jathedar, Akaali Baba Joginder Singh The fake one, Balbir Bazighar. My question is, how did he suddenly gain so much influence? Did the government bribe him, etc? WJKK WJKF
  2. Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh, Lakh Lakh Vadhaian to all the Saadhsangat on the Purab of Hola Mahalla. Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj initiated this festival at Sri Holgarh Sahib (Sri Anandpur Sahib), on Cheth Vadhee Ekam 1757 Bikrami. Guru Sahib alongside the festivities of Hola, used this time to gear his Sikhs towards Shastar Vidhya. The Sikhs immersed themselves in the colour of love for Gurbani by sitting in the Saadhsangat. Changing the ancient tradition of ‘holi’ to ‘hola’ Guru Sahib said the immortal words recorded in Gurpadh Prem Parkash by Baba Sumer Singh, ‘ਔਰਨ ਕੀ ਹੋਲੀ ਮਮ ਹੋਲਾ ॥’ (for others it is Holi, for me it is Hola). Mahakavi Bhai Santokh Singh Ji has beautifully described the scene of Hola Mahalla in Sri Gurpartap Suraj Granth: ਬ੍ਰਿੰਦ ਭਏ ਸਿੱਖ ਸੰਗਤ ਆਏ ਆਨੰਦ ਬਿਲੰਦ ਗੁਰੂ ਦਰਬਾਰਾ ॥ In Guru Ji’s Darbar Sikhs came in large numbers full of bliss. ਲੰਗਰ ਹੋਤਿ ਅਤੋਟ ਜਹਾ ਕਹਿ ਜੋ ਜਿਹ ਚਾਹਤ ਖਾਏ ਅਹਾਰਾ ॥ All around the city the Guru’s Langar was running non-stop; the Sikhs would eat where they pleased. ਭੂਰ ਮਿਲੇ ਚਹੁ ਕੋਦ ਤੇ ਮੋਦਤ ਆਵਤਿ ਹੈ ਮਿਲਿ ਟੋਲ ਹਜ਼ਾਰਾ ॥ From all four directions thousands of Sikhs had gathered in Anandpur Sahib for Hola Mahalla. ਭੀੜ ਭਈ ਭਰਪੂਰ ਭਯੋ ਪੁਰ ਭਾਉ ਭਰੇ ਭਲ ਭਾਗ ਲਿਲਾਰਾ ॥ ੪ ॥ Those on whose forehead good fortune was written were colored in the color of the Guru’s love. 4. ਤਾਲ ਰਬਾਬ ਪਖਾਵਜ ਕੇ ਬਹੁ ਬਾਦਤਿ ਬਾਜਤਿ ਹੈਂ ਧੁਨ ਭਾਰੀ ॥ The Rababs and Pakhawaj (drums) were being played with great enthusiasm. ਗਾਵਤਿ ਰਾਗਨਿ ਰਾਗਨੀ ਕੋ ਜਾਨ ਆਇ ਖਰੇ ਨਿਜ ਮੂਰਤ ਧਾਰੀ ॥ The Raags and Raagnis of Gurbani were sung so beautifully it was as if the very manifestations of them raags had come and stood in front of the sangat. ਜਿਯੋ ਸੁਰ ਲੋਕ ਬਿਖੈ ਸੁਰ ਮੋਦਤਿ ਆਪਸ ਮੈਂ ਮਿਲਿ ਕੈ ਹਿਤਕਾਰੀ ॥ In the way that the demi-Gods in happiness meet each other in heaven. ਤਿਯੋੰ ਸਿੱਖ ਸੰਗਤ ਪੰਕਤਿ ਕੋ ਕਰਿ, ਹੇਰਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਹਰਖੈਂ ਉਰ ਭਾਰੀ ॥ ੫ ॥ Similarly, The Guru’s Sikhs are in a state of extreme happiness lining up to gain the glimpse of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. 5. ਬਾਜਤਿ ਹੈਂ ਸਿੰਘ ਪੌਰ ਕੇ ਠੌਰਨਿ ਨੌਬਤ ਸ਼੍ਰੌਨ ਆਨੰਦ ਉਪਾਵੈਂ ॥ Near the main door of the fort, the Nagaras (war drums) are being played, hearing which the Sikhs are obtaining bliss. ਝੰਡੇ ਉਚੇਰੇ ਖਰੇ ਬਹੁ ਝੂਲਤਿ ਧੌਂਸੇ ਧੁੰਕਾਰਤਿ ਨਾਦ ਉਠਾਵੈਂ ॥ The Nishan Sahibs of the Khalsa Panth are fluttering high in the sky and the Nagaras are producing a very loud sound. ਹੋਤਿ ਉਛਾਹ ਜਹਾਂ ਕਹਿ ਡੋਲਤਿ ਡੋਲਤਿ ਹੈਂ ਜੈਕਾਰ ਸੁਨਾਵੈਂ ॥ Gursikhs with great enthusiasm are roaring Jaikaras (war cries). ਮੇਲ ਸਕੇਲ ਭਯੋ ਰੰਗ ਮੇਲਤਿ ਭੀਰ ਧਕੇਲਤਿ ਪੇਲਤਿ ਜਾਵੈਂ ॥ ੬ ॥ ... Many Sikhs have gathered and are throwing colour on each other, the great crowd is moving forward. 6. ... ਕਬਿਤ ॥ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਕਰਿ ਹੋਰੀ ਕੋ ਬਿਲੰਦ ਸਾਜ ਹਾਥ ਪਿਚਕਾਰੀ ਸਭਿਹੂੰਨ ਭਰਿ ਲੀਨੀਓਂ ॥ Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji in their hands have taken a ‘Pichkaari’ (syringe instrument used to throw color), seeing this all the Sikhs have also taken Pickhaaris in their hands. ਭਲੇ ਭਲੇ ਸਿੱਖ ਆਇ ਧਾਰਤ ਭਗਤਿ ਭਾਇ ਪ੍ਰਿਥਮ ਗੁਰੂ ਕੇ ਪਾਇ ਬੰਦਨਾ ਕੋ ਕੀਨੀਓ ॥ The Sikhs in pure devotion are coming towards Guru Sahib and bowing at their charan. ਉਡਿਓ ਇਕ ਬਾਰ ਹੀ ਗੁਲਾਲ ਲਾਲ ਘਟਾ ਮਾਨੋ ਰੰਗਨਿ ਕੀ ਬੂੰਦ ਬਰਖਤ ਇਮ ਚੀਨੀਓ ॥ At once they all threw red color on each other, it was as if raindrops of different colors were falling everywhere. ਰੰਗਦਾਰ ਅੰਬਰ ਕੈ ਰੰਗਦਾਰ ਅੰਬਰ ਕੈ ਮੂਠ ਭਰਿ ਮਾਰੈਂ ਰੰਗ ਡਾਰਤਿ ਨਵੀਲਿਓਂ ॥ ੮ ॥ Throwing handfuls of colour in the air it seemed as if even the sky had taken on a new colour. 8.

  5. Shaheedi Degh...?

    VJKK VJF Sangat Ji, I'm hearing that Nihang Singhs put 5 leaves of cannabis in degh. What is this for and why is this? I mean cannabis... cannabis. I'm kind of (not) getting to grips what jhatka meat is about but cannabis? Someone please enlighten me. VJKK VJKF
  6. Purataan Rehat Marayada

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa! Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Sangat Ji, has anyone got a copy of the purataan rehat marayada where the panj pathay (5 leaves) of sukha is written? Or is it taken from Bhai Santokh Singh's Sri Gur Partap Suraj Parkash? Also, is shaheedi degh the only way of consumption? Meaning, can it be consumed as infused 'tea' with honey for example? Looking to get the health benefits from it but won't always be able to do the traditional ragra. Please don't make this post anti-sukha/shaheedi degh! Akaal!
  7. How to join a nihang dal?

    WJKK WJKF As part of a school project, I am doing Sikhi for religious education. Our essay focuses more on sects (Taksali, AKJ, 3HO, etc) I am doing Nihang, and many of my other class members are. I want to go further and actually explain how to join them. If you think about it, people will have stuff like their beliefs, how they were created, modern day nihangs. I want to do stuff like beliefs, how they were created, their contribution in 1984, Nihang isn't one sect (it relies on Nihang jathebandees), how to become a nihang yourself If anyone could help me I would appreciate it a lot.

  11. https://youtu.be/p8jvzLYltK8 Mom catholic, father buddhists, and educated in catholic environment. He said he wasnt satisfied in his spiritual life. He began his journey on the path of truth on the search for truth. He learned in libraries to discover the truth in spiritual knowledge. Bhai Sahib did his own research and compared one religion to another. At a young age, He figured that every religion was the same as it teaches goodness and well being for everyone. However, he wasnt satisfied and his thirst wasnt fulfilled. At his tenth birthday, Bhai Sahibs mom gave him a book about world religions and thats where he discovered Sikhism. He says the word Sikhism connects in his mind because he passed a Gurdwara on his way to school everyday in Jakarta. He learned about Sikhism and study deeply into the religion. Due to limited resources, the study on Sikhi was limited and he determined that the religion is normal compared to others. The question lingered in his mind about the true religion. He began on further research on the new religion he discovered. He searched for books on Sikhism from library to library and finally found a good resource and understood that Sikhism isnt the same as the other religions. By the age of 11, he learned about Sikhism from two Sikhs he met in Singapore. Bhai Wadbhag was referred by the Sikh men to learn more from the local Gurdwara where he started to learn from Granthis and Kirtaniye from the Gurdwara Sahib in Singapore. Finally, Bhai Sahib met the student of Sant Jarnail Singh Ji Khalsa Bhindranwale and Sant Giani Gurbhachan Singh Bhindranwale Giani Vikar Singh. Bhai Wadbhag learned about the Nitnem Banis, Sikh Sakhis, Sants, and the Sikh Shaheeds. After learning about the Shaheeds, Bhai Wadbhag Singh was inspired to embrace Sikhi. http://dailysikhupdates.com/catholic-nihang-singh-incredible-journey-wadbhag-singh/
  12. 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/
  13. Budha Dal

    It seems like baba joginder Singh has joined with balbir Singh. What are your thoughts on this? There is a video on Facebook if somebody can find it.
  14. Waheguru This is a great documentary on nihang singh, it seems to be a old one because all the jathedars look younger.
  15. Its a pretty old video but I thought I'd share it What do you guys think? Its pretty funny and true and I guess Niddar had it coming too.

  18. The Dead Lands.

    I recently saw the trailer for this film and was saddened, especially seeing that Sikhs possess no viable film industry. http://www.flicks.co.nz/movie/the-dead-lands/ Ironically if we do ever have a historic Sikh film will it have exacerbated stunts like this:? I am sure that somewhere along the line the Punjab film industry grew confused between culture (Punjabi) and history (not balle balle).

  23. Weapons In Dastaar

    VJKK VJKF Sat Sangat Ji, I have a question I would like to ask about shaster in a dumalla. It is a quick question and I hope some singhs or kaurs out their can shed shed some light on it. I have heard old stories about nihangs in battle where they would take the weapons out of their dumalle and use them in battle. I can see how one would take off a chakram but how about a kirpaan. Is their a certain way you must tie the kirpaan into the dastaar? I have this question because I have tried experimenting tieng a kirpaan into my dumalla but whenever I try and take it out it always messes up the lar or it takes too long to get out. Now, in the battlefield, say you dropped your sword and you couldnt reach it for whatever reason, you would have to take that weapon out of your dastaar fast or your dead. So i was wondering if anyone can post an explanation, video, etc. that explains how Nihangs did this. Thank you, VJKK VJKF
