  1. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh My Sikh brothers and sisters, I had a very troubling experience recently, and cannot make sense of what is going on. I post this for some spiritual guidance, and hope somebody has relevant passages from Guru Granth Sahib Ji that can point me in the right direction. One late evening a year ago, I was in a very bad situation driving my car, I do not want to go in detail. At the point at which I should have died, I had a vague vision of seeing bright light, and I believe I saw a baba with a white beard, I want to say he was standing behind a tall podium or something like that. Its so vague now, I dont recall how long this vision was, any detail, or if anything was said. Then right after that, I had another dream or vision so vivid, it felt real- My heart jolted and I was back in my car, but I could see the passenger next to me dead, and in a very gruesome situation. My heart jolted, and then I remember seeing emergency lights behind me, and came back to reality. I was so scared to look to my right, but when I did, my passenger was now alive and unscathed. I was not particularly religious before this event. But after the event although I am still a mona sikh, I wear my Kara more often and recite Japji sahib every day. I should have died that night, and every day I ask myself "am I really alive?". And even a few times I can almost even convince myself that I am really dead and this reality is just an illusion (very strong deja vu at times). A strange thing happened recently on the one year anniversary of my "death". I had markings break out on my body- and inflate parts of my skin (kind of like how a mosquito bite does). I also had red scratches all over my body- like the kind you get when you itch skin too much with long nails. This has never happened to me before, and I find the coincidence to be unbelievable. Maybe I am going mad....maybe guru ji was trying to send me a message to save my life and put me in the right direction. I dont know- but I would really appreciate the sangats advice on what is happening and if there are any passages relevant to my situation. Thank you for your time. Waheguru Ji ka khalsa, Waheguru Ji ki fateh
  2. A recording of Sant Mani Singh Ji talking about Sikhi, Naam and Gurbani. This very unique and special Enlightened being is the first brahmgyani to be born in England (outside of India). https://youtu.be/Swpq55f3msc
  3. I know some people will think i ask a no-brainer question. Everyone knows what simran is. Or do we know? I wish to start each day of mine now with simran at amritvela. This is the best thing one can do and its merits are eulogized again and again in sggs. But some say simran is reciting waheguru, waheguru. Others will say just parroting isnt enough.you have to listen deeply. Yet others say they focus ob third eye in trikuti when meditating. Yet some others say simran is not physical but more mental, simply remembering waheguru at all times. Whatever simran maybe in true sense, its more powerful than all nuclear bombs. Guru sahib even goes to say that one can't describe the "gati" of one who believes this way. To see the wonders of simran go no further than ashtpadi one of sukhmani sahib. This wonderful baani in its first octet describes the wonders and fruits of naam simran , 8 nidhi, 18 siddhi, etc. I wonder why so many who claim to do naam simran don't get them. 🤔

  5. Wasting Time?

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! How to control wasting time on useless stuff and focus on building productivity in Gurmat or personal things? Sometimes, I genuinely feel like I could do something so much more; however, it all gets wasted away in stuff that I don't really need or think other people need, (this website being one example, where it just seems like debates and nobody really learns anything). Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

  7. 500 arths of Waheguru

    Was reading up on nirmaley and was curious if they actually produced a book/pothi/teeka on the 500 arths of Waheguru mantra, also if they have does anyone know/have access to a copy?
  8. For more than 50 years, the Central Govt has made Panjab give away more than 50 percent of its river water, for free, to the non riparian states of Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi. And it has costed Panjab more than 20 lakh crore rupees (£200 billion pounds). Today only 20 per cent of Panjab's water needs are being met by its own river water. In this film, Pritam Singh Kumedan, an expert and advisor to the Panjab Govt on riparian water issues, reveals, in an interview with UNITED SIKHS, how Panjab can stop giving away this water for free. Will the politicians, who Panjab is voting for on 4th Feb 2017, ensure that Panjab does not give away its water to non-riparian states anymore?

  12. What do I do

    Sat Sri Akal ji I am 32 years old, well qualified and with a good professional future.My parents had been searching for quite a while for a suitable match groom for me, but due to some reason or the other I couldn't see any of those prospective grooms as my future husband. I prayed to waheguru every day to find the perfect match for me. I did Sehaj Path, woke up at Amrit vela, did mool mantra jaap, went to gurudwara sahib every day. In the meantime this whole finding a groom thing was turning into utter torture for me. Then finally about two years ago It seemed Akal Purkh had answered my prayers. Our parents exchanged our numbers and we started talking. This person was the ideal I had been searching for. He had firm belief in Sikhism, did simran, woke up at Amrit vela, had never been into a relationship with anyone, was doing great in his profession, was very understanding and a thorough gentleman. I absolutely worshipped him. I thanked God everyday for sending this man in my life. We talked about our future together, discussed spiritualism etc. All this while his mother kept putting of fixing a wedding date on some pretext or the other. Then finally she told my mother that she doesn't want us to be together. The reason she gave was a very frivolous one regarding my height. But what hurt me the most was that this man whom I respected and loved with all my heart and soul, whom I looked up to as my husband without there being any formal ceremony, he seemed to remain utterly indifferent to all this. He even refused to take my calls.finally he messaged saying he can't go against his parents. How can people who believe in waheguru act like this? I put all my faith in waheguru then why did God do this to me. I am utterly shattered and depressed. I am unable to concentrate on paath or simran. It's like I've lost everything. The future seems so dark. I keep on thinking about this guy and crying all the time. I feel so tired of life. I have resigned from my job, my health has suffered and I am afraid of what the future holds for me. I have never felt so helpless. I feel even waheguru is not on my side and is punishing me. Please help me.
  13. To quote a portion: 'The seven years, from 1708-1716, which chart the meteoric rise and execution of Banda Singh Bahadur are a testament to the rugged individualism and grit of the Sikhs. They reflect a prominent pattern of Sikh history viz. the ascent, descent and the re-ascent of the Khalsa over it’s foes. As memories of June 1984 loom ever closer, it would be prudent for Sikhs worldwide to reflect upon the revolutions of both Banda and the Sikhs of ’84 and attempt to identify the similarities in both. It is a given that no two movements can ever be fully compared or even contrasted, but a general consensus can always be agreed upon vis-a-vis their effect and ultimate conclusion. The forced demise of Banda Singh’s revolution did not put it’s spirit to sleep; rather it only bolstered the Sikh spirit and the Khalsa continued it’s struggle for sovereignty and religious freedom in the wilderness of the Punjab. Post-’84, the Sikhs failed to derive inspiration from their past and rather focused solely upon the trauma of ’84. As such, their history was brought to a premature conclusion on the events of the aforementioned period. One need only imagine what the result would have been if the post-Banda Sikhs had focused solely upon their treatment at the hands of the Mughals, rather than taking any conducive steps towards preserving themselves from such atrocities in the future.' https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/2016/06/03/the-stalwarts-revolution/

  15. Sangat ji I used to trim hairs before but came to canada 3 yrs back and with sangat if si gh friends, i stopped trimming hairs, nd started reading gurbani also. Some singh friends told to be a amritdhari but i said i will first remember all 5 banis nd will increase my nitnem to 2.5 hrs a day minimum, nd when i will go back then i will become an amritdhari. So they told me to practice rehat first, as some singh friends alao used to practice. So i dis an ardass to guru sahib and started wearing all kakaars including kirpan, it was now about almost two years. I do 5 bania nitnem everyday without missing a single day, sometime two nitnems or three. When i m nit on job, get up early moring about 12,30am or 1,30am and tried to practice mool mantarr, Since then not even look at girls, consider all as sisters. Remember all 5 banis except jaap sahib now, nd keep practice mool matar all the day till bed. Never addicted to drugs etc, i not even drink cofee nd tea from two years But today a gurmukh pyara while discussions told me that u should not wear kirpan without amrit, as its not good, u can wear all 4 kakaars but not kirpan, But sangat ji, i has decided to take amrit on 2017 vaisakhi,(it was my personal promise with me, as i need to have operation of my eyes, which will be beadvi of eye hairs). Moreover, i personally promised to take amrit from damdami taksal(i know amrit is same where there r panj pyaras, but its just my own wish to go damdami taksal) He told me that we will discuss this with 5 pyaras if they say good, u can wear kirpan If they say its not good, u should not wear kirpan without amrit. I will definety do what they will decide but i started wearing kakaars 2 yrs back nd havent separated from my body even while crossing USA borders so many times, i dont want to remove kirpan. Nd i dnt want to have operation on my eyes after amrit, so i can take amrit only on vaisaakhi 2017, i just aaking for ur kind answers. Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh

  19. WJKK WJKF, There is one exam which i want to pass and i always fail with minor difference of marks. Now i have only last chance to give. This time i want to be 100% sure before giving exam. So now my question. I want to know that is there any way that i can do naam simraan as much as possible with me for even year or so or longer. But Guru Sahib / ? can let me know that i will clear this exam through any means. SOmetings like Astrologer will tell whetehr i am going to pass or not but through WAHEGURU. I really don't want to take any risk , But i want to know before hand if Naam /Simran i do is sufficent to pass the exam. I don't know any mahapurush who can tell me with Divya drishti. All i know is Waheguru ji but i don't know he they will communciate with me. Any ideas ???
  20. New Site

    Due to a number of rising technical difficulties with Blogger, we have decided to return to our original Wordpress site.Tisarpanth on blogger, however, will still be available as an archive and will occasionally be updated. Winston Churchill once elaborated that to 'change constantly is to be perfect.' Our aim is to be perfect in our mission i.e. reflecting the Sikh past and relating it to the present. In this vein we have also now designed a site which will be much more accessible on SmartPhones and tablets etc. This is not the end of our journey, this is only the beginning. -Tisarpanth. https://tisarpanthdotcom.wordpress.com/
  21. Last year was a tough year. We decided we were having an extension to be done in the house. This resulted in a great deal of disruption to our normal routine. It also meant that we were more busy than ever and had lesser visitors around. It meant we were eating simpler foods. It also meant that the TV was off for a significant amount of time. This is when I had my ipod on for long periods of time. I was listening to a lot of shabad kirtan, We were visiting lesser people so I was spending a significant amount of time on my own. (Listening to shabads, I would have tears rolling down my eyes and would cry a great deal) I had never woken up at Amrit vela to do path. I decided to do this and Amrit vela was truly magical. I had a number of experiences of being woken up by divine forces and the urge to start praying. It is at this time that one day I was listening to the shabad - ik shin dharas dhikhaye ji. Then I started to wonder what it would be to get darshan for just a minute. Deep in my heart I starting longing for darshan of one minute. I woke up at Amrit vela - did all my prayers and went to sleep. When I was sleeping - I had this wonderful blissful experience which is totally difficult to describe. My soul was totally awakened and my heart felt like it filled my whole body. I felt totally different and there was a voice deep deep in me asking me If I wanted Waheguru and there was Waheguru simran going on like I have never heard or felt before. The voice was so clear. There was nothing to see - it was just a feeling. A very clear feeling. My answer was yes - I wanted Waheguru. The voice replied to me - Then keep doing the jap of Waheguru. The voice was not heard by my ears but by my soul. Then the great feeling started to part. My husband was calling me below to do something. (in my dream) I was pleading with him, please give me one second - the feeling is leaving me and I dont want it to end. In my dream my soul was sort of hanging in the air and I could not get down to do the task he was asking me to. I was in full consciousness but sort of paralysed. Something kept tugging me on the side and I thought it was my son. The feeling which I was getting of Waheguru was so sweet that I could not let it go but it kept departing. My soul was yearning for it and an explanation came to me instantly and I understood - not now it said - you still have people who need you. I woke up and opened my eyes. I thought my son was on the side pulling at my blanket - but he was not. The feeling of his hands on my side was so real, that I was just wondering what had been happening to me. Some force had come to my assistance to bring my soul back to my body. I was wondering whether I had died or what was it? I was only full of regret - why did I ask darshaan of only ik shin? I should have asked more. How did I know that this wish would be fulfilled? If I had known then I would definitely have asked for more. So if you are doing simran or bhagti or anything else (meditation, listening to shabads) be hopeful and know that Waheguru is real. YOu need to keep working and try to beat all the obstacles which will come your way. Use your time wisely - choose your friends wisely and keep your thoughts positive and focused all the time. The hope which we rely on and the reward of darshan of one minute is so beautiful that it fills you up with regret when you have to depart. Keep praying that Waheguru can keep us in sach khand right under his care and under his wings such that we do not have to depart from him again and come to this earth to suffer. The real spiritual world which we long to see is seen with closed eyes. What we see when we open our eyes is all false. Yes it was and it is a sad departing when we leave God to come to this world. God wants us to unite with him, but we can only meet him through our actions. So let us start doing the things which will bring us closer to God. ਰਾਗੁ ਗਉੜੀ ਪੂਰਬੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ रागु गउड़ी पूरबी महला ५ Rāg ga▫oṛī pūrbī mėhlā 5 Raag Gauree Poorbee, Fifth Mehl: ੴ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ ॥ ੴ सतिगुर प्रसादि ॥ Ik▫oaʼnkār saṯgur parsāḏ.

  22. God In Sikhism

    What attributes are applied to god in sikhism (omni-potent, omni-present etc.), how and why was he conceived and what system do his followers follow to achieve enlightenment and is it possible to have varying answers to these questions while still being a orthodox sikh?
