Nanaksar Kaleran Jagraon is a proper speritual place and i would definatly reccomend any person going to punjab to go to this amazing Gurughar. Everywhere i looked was devoted sangat in deep prayer. I felt so priviliged to go to the lower sachkhand darbar and do paath with such loving chardi kala sangat. much of the sangat here does non stop paath for DAYS. They eat litle, sleep little and spend most of there life in deep meditation.

Nearby to this Gurughar is Mehdiana Sahib renowned for its magnificent artistic monuments dipicting scenes of Sikh History....

I've visited Gurdwara Nanaksar numerous bah honestly i found people there worship baba nand singh ji and isher singh ji more than god. Even you will find banners saying "dhan baba isher singh ji nand singh ji ho rahi hai tuhadi jai jai kar".......people visiting there usually pray to late mahapurakhs....even you can see a pic in previous posts of mahapurakh...... i am not against any mahapurakh or sant but it hurts when people follow them rather than the true akal purakh........unfortunately people there have idolised mahapurakhs and now it's like a samprada going on and on. Even if you visit lower sachkhand it's not for everyone ...there are a few terms and conditions like you should only enter if would recite few hundred japji sahib paths or few sukhmani sahib paths afterwards....such man made laws have nothing to do with sikhi and just create confusions.

The place is magnificent but the sewadars have made their own samprada and follow sikhi their own style and are kindda encouraging their samprada more than sikhi itself.

Veerjee the reason why they dont let you down unless you do alot of paath is because these people pray for days, unless yur going to pray with them for a lenghty amount of time its unfair to go down. thats just my opinion anyways. Infact theres many gurduarae in Punjab where in certain sections you can not go in unless you do alot of paath. I personally am not really against this.

Most gurduaras have this problem, even in mehdiana people were matatekhing the statues.

even in ortherdox Guruduara's many sangat worship 10 Guru's and even pictures more then God, so although what your saying is true, Nanaksar can not really be singled out, its down to the sangat if they go their to worship Baba Nand Singh Jee or Satguru Sahib.

heres afew more pictures taken at Gurduara Mehdiana Sahib

The reasoning behind asking the sangat to recite banis for 40 days is to get a person into the routine of doing paath/jaap. After 40 days you will have become so used to it and will start reliasing the benefits that it is hoped you will carry on in the practise daily....

I don't see anything wrong in setting oneself a goal of trying to do something good, positive for x number of days. The mind looks for any excuse not to partake in the rememberance of Waheguru. It is exactly the same concept when your asked to do a certain number of malas of mool mantar or waheguru jaap. For those who haven't started, it is a method of getting a person used to sitting for a period of time. Over time kirpa will come automatically. Your legs will get used to sitting, your mind will begin to focus and concentrate more.

These are just small jugtiya to help people...... :TH:

I remember when I went to Medhiana Sahib gurdwara and saw the statues. My sisters were asking about what was happening with the chote sahib and as I was telling them, I just burst into tears. So young and yet so willing to give their lives for Sikhi. Puts me to shame.

Sorry Veerji, for a late response (3 years :rolleyes: ) but there are lot of misconceptions about nanaksar. It is not true that they promote their own samparda more than Sikhi as this samparda is about Sikhi and believe in Guru Granth Sahib ji as pargat Guru. Baba Nand Singh ji and Baba Isher Singh ji never did any self promotion. Their only aim ever was to spread Sikhi through Amrit Parchar and to jodo Sikh Sangat with Sahib Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji as the true and only Guru. I do not see any thing wrong with saying 'Ho rahi hai tuhadi jai jai kar' as much as I do not see anything with some saying (my self included) 'Sant Jarnail Singh Bhindrawale Zindabad'. You may want to check out couple follwing site to see what Nanaksar Samprarda is all about. There other sites as well that you can research.

    • Changing his viewpoint on Sikhs being vegetarian -   
    • Its not just him. One of the most ridiculous notions peddled by the left is that ALL of the far right are idiots who can't tell the difference. The reality is something completely different. People like Ben Shapiro and Milo Yiannopoulos, both of whom have a respectable number of followers remind people of this whenever there is an attack as the media paints us with the same brush as the terrorists.  Most of the big Right wing "preachers" i guess is an accurate term, know the difference and tend to cite it always.
    • Don't worry about not having a spiritual experience. The main thing is you don't divert from God's name. You don't want to get into ego from experiences either.  All people are not the same, an experience to one person may not be the same as another, however large or small it maybe. We should bear in mind, that we do not recite God's name for experiences, but to think of it as our duty and love towards them. If we start to ask for experiences, then we have forgotten what our goal is.  It is up to Waheguru to grace somebody with an experience. It can happen how much more or less time on one spends on Simran, than another. Do not compare yourself to others, an experience will happen in Waheguru's Hukam, not by anybody saying how or when.  Its good to increase Simran, Gurbani if you wish to and spending more time to devote yourself towards it, will never be incomplete of anything. But we must focus on doing Simran and not expect anything back in return. Just leave that to God to decide.  Say if somebody has an experience, does it necessarily mean it has to be a physical one or that is visible? And then what after that?  Doing Simran, reciting/listening to  Gurbani is an experience in itself. We are here in this world for this experience of having the opportunity to, that is also an experience we should be grateful for. But we forget God is everywhere.  ਤੂੰ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਭਰਿਪੁਰਿ ਲੀਣਾ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਸਰਬ ਸਮਾਣਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ 
      तूं जलि थलि महीअलि भरिपुरि लीणा तूं आपे सरब समाणा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ 
      Ŧūʼn jal thal mahī▫al bẖaripur līṇā ṯūʼn āpe sarab samāṇā. ||1|| rahā▫o. 
      Thou art fully contained in water, dry land nether and upper regions. Thou Thyself art pervading everywhere. Pause. 
      SGGS ji Ang 731 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji   I understand that you maybe desiring for an experience to feel the presence of God for yourself, but just remind yourself they are everywhere. When we do Simran with love for God, then we'll start to feel the anand (bliss) of it, when God graces us with it.   
    • Apart from the ignorant British attacking a Sikh wearing a turban (which I hear is very rare, I'm Canadian/American btw), I doubt that the British people will target Sikhs. Instead, what they will do is far worse, they will use our history with the Muslims to incite us and basically use us as fodder as they did in their Raj, though this time, it'll be purely against the Muslims. 
    • It is going to be of no use to you to know how much simran to do. You simply have to arrange time for yourself. .. approximately 2 hours 40 minutes everyday. One tenth of your time everyday to Devote to simran. It is a blessing from God if one is able to put in this amount of time.  Pichle janam dhi kamayi counts as well greatly. God has preselected exactly whom he would like to have these experiences.  If you have these experiences, then you have to learn to not spread them about and you will have more. There are many more things that come to pass... we are spiritual beings suffering from separation from our creator. Reconnection is going to occur slowly and understanding these experiences comes slowly too. As you keep your simran up, you are able to obtain great amounts of happiness and peace from it. So forming a habit of simran should be done as a conscious effort.
