  1. Having seen pictures of the Shaheedi jatha heading towards Jaito , it is clear the Blue Nishan with Katar Dhal and Kirpan was used , so when exactly did the new symbology enter into existence and who introduced it and what was their reasoning because I could find anything wrong with our own Nishan Sahib ? I have read read that this has elements which correspond with ancient babylonian symbology which the freemasons are into.(moon symbol) and looking at Rattrays khanda symbol it is not really clear about the thinking behind it .
  2. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, how come we always fall short despite doing Nitnem and Amrit Vela and trying to follow Guru Sahib to the best of our ability?
  3. I am really scared of death, how do I get rid of that fear? I feel like life is just going so fast and I am justing getting worried and am staring to panic
  4. I have lost connections to Sikhi, I feel nothing towards it.
  5. What are some good mangalacharns that we can use before taking a hukamnama. Don't post ones that are used often like bani guru guru hai bani or so kaho tal Gur seviae, post something that people rarely use. Thank you
  6. Wkjk wjkf, I was wondering which Sikh scholars are in line and put forward puratan Sikh principles as some such as mcleod or Singh sabha scholars will avoid key aspects that were important features to the Akali Nihang Khalsa and the Nirmala Samparda.
  7. There are two schools of spirituality - which one do you think sikhi belong to Gyaan marg vs bhakti marg (i) No Symbols of god - he is the universe vs God definitely needs a symbol For sikhs it has become Saroop of sggs and the confines of gurdwara (ii) No rituals are ever needed vs Rituals are a must In sikhi context we have started chavar, akahand paths, jot, sukhasan , prakash , expensive palkis , keep the saroop in AC / blankets (e.g I don't keep my phone in AC which also has the same SGGS in electronic format ) (iii) Meditation is the only way to find him - Pancha ka gur ek dhyan vs chanting or reciting (while mind is wandering in thorughts) or paying others to recite for you (as in outsourced akhand paths ) (iv) No miracles - only laws of nature which do not discriminate against materialistic person or favor spiritual one vs For your worldly needs beseech god - e.g cure diseases, pass exams , success in business etc. (v) No sectarianism - all humanity is absolutely one (Na ko hindu na musalmaan) vs A sect is almost always formed because our ego makes us gel with people who follow same symbolism as us , so now we have sikhi becoming a sect and not much of a way to live a full life and cut the cycle of rebirths.
  8. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Daas wanted to know if Bhagti was inherited, because when pregnant mothers do lots of Bhagti while they are expecting the child usually becomes a person of higher Gurmat; however, there are some mothers who didn't do a lot of Bhagti and their children still turned out great, in terms of Gurmat. Also what can the father do to assist the child's Bhagti before the child is born, because it always seems like the mother's responsibility for Pre-Birth Simran? Also don't bring-up the issues of Mahapurukhs since many are sent by Vaheguru, and have been Pre-Mukt before they came, even Gurbani says they are exceptional. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  9. I tried to find out what happened to the strong Panth that we used to have in Punjab and one of the main reasons of the downfall in India was because of sikhs themselves selling out their Sikh brothers and sisters!! For drugs, for threats on their families by the government, for police! I can't believe that Sikhs would sell out SIkhi like this? Why did this happen??
  10. Why dont we mass produce copies of the sggs in english copies and hand them to people who are interested in Sikhism? You always see muslims handing out free copys of the koran in english and christians doing the same. Yet all we do is talk but no action.
  11. I was looking through Bhai Randheer Singhs Gurmat Bibek/Vivek Books and it took me really long to get through the pages especially because he uses very high level Punjabi when writing. I was wondering if anyone knows any translations to the books or if they would like to collaborate with the Canada Sangat to have them translated? Vaheguruuuu Ji Ka Khalsaa Vaheguruuuu Ji Ki Fatehhh!
  12. Should sikhs celebrate divaali (rechirstened as bandi chor divas)when there is no historical proof of Guru Hargobind jee acutally coming home on a day that coincides with hindu Diwaali ? Share your views - in my view if we have a good naam simran practise then everyday is diwali
  13. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Something Daas wanted to know was how exactly did people start believing in Ram Singh as a Guru, when he himself said these statements: Also from what Daas has learned about him he was somewhat more interested in helping the path of Gurmat than to divide from it, (in fact from some Gurmukhs Daas has heard that he was some Mahapurukh who just happened to get his teachings corrupted). Many of the first Naamdharis of Ram Singh also considered Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as Satguru, and Ram Singh even said that he was a servant to the Guru. Even giving Amrit to at least 1000000 people according to the Khalsa Panth. So why did people start believing he was the light of the Guru? Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  14. WJKKWJKF Is it acceptable to throw in the garbage/recycle the pamphlets(advertising material) that usually has some gurbani words/verses printed on it? If not, what should be done. Please advise.
  15. WJKK WJKF, Sangat ji if anybody can help me find puratan shastars and good war worthy leather shield from Punjab or Nanded, i will be thankful. Even if anybody knows where can i find new sarbloh shastars, that would be great too.
  16. I have been reading some articles & books on sikh history at the time of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, both from sikh & non-sikh sources. It has come to me that there are some things that are either falsified or true in our history. For example, was Baba Deep Singh Ji's head actually decapitated & he was able to fight for long time while holding head on hand? Or that Baba Deep Singh Ji's head was heavily injured and that he supported his head from losing too much blood by placing hand & fighting with his other hand? From the people's opinions i read, some stated that this was to show the power of Guru ji's spiritual power, while some said that Baba Deep Singh Ji actually carried a decapitated head while fighting. There are some other history i have not yet stated, anyhow, i would like all your opinions on this subject. Please do not consider this disrespect as my main purpose is to originally find out the actual events rather than unintentionally or intentionally falsified events throughout various times & ages. Waheguru. (Source-Read comments :
  18. Hello guys, i am a 15 year old boy living in Canada. I have kesh, little bit beard, and regularly go to the guruduwara, though im not amrit dhari. I have this issue that completely ruins my day & for others. No one knows about this, not even my respected parents. I play lots of sport & am quite athletic. I have never had a significant other female in my life, except my mom lol. But still after all this, i commit sin by falling to kaam, by masturbating on nude girls. This started happy 1 year ago but i somehow put a stop to it, and did not masterbate for full 6 months, yet i had terrible wet dreams that i could not control whatsoever. This makes me feel like a garbage bag, floating through the dirty winds, and destroys my gur sikhi jeevan. I cannot even do ardaas properly without thinking about this. I do not know if masterbating is right or wrong, some people say it is normal, then some people say it is wrong & a sin. If i stop masterbating, i get wet dreams, which are even worse. If i start masterbating then i feel terribly guilty & out of sikhi order. So respected members, please tell me the right path & how to successfully solve this problem. This is what making me not reach my full potential as human being, so again please & thankyou. ð¢ð³

  22. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh, Daas was recently wondering how he could inspire people to follow Sikhi more, especially with the way the world is going right now. Daas honestly believes that there is something he does wrong while trying to explain the importance of Sikhi just to the the basic people Daas knows. Also there is no true Sarbat Da Bhalla without Sikhi as all other joys are temporary with only Gurmat being permanent joy. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  23. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Daas really wanted to know why some people misinterpret Gurbani to fill their own needs? This happens a lot especially by Liberal Sikhs; which Daas sometimes notices on this website. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
