Sehaj Paath Marayda..

Recommended Posts

just adding another question to the original question: what should be proper rehat for doing sehaj paath on laptop? i normally keep the basic rehat we follow when touching bani (washing hands, not touching anything else other than the bani, keeping bani on higher level etc) but since its digital medium we are talking about, what you think are other things we should keep in mind?

fateh! :happy:

aren't you the same person who is going to open up a school to have punjabi/sikh history classes etc.

Well, you definitely need people who know punjabi for your punjabi classes then. Be an assistant teacher for punjabi class, you can learn and monitor/assist kids at the same time.

Actually I am a 16 year old girl and me and some other people including adults are working on the school project.

And so yes they are going to teach Punjabi and thats how I plan on learning Punjabi in the summer.

Here is the extract from SIKH REHAT MARYADA published by Dharam Parchar Committee,

SGPC in respect of Sadharan (SEHAJ )Pathh and Akhand Pathh:-

CHAPTER - VII

Sadharan Path (Completion of Normal Intermittent Reading of the Guru Granth Sahib)

Article VIII

a. Every Sikh should, as far as possible, maintain a separate and exclusive place for the installation

of Guru Granth Sahib, in his home.

b. Every Sikh, man, woman, boy or girl, should learn Gurmukhi to be able to read the Guru Granth Sahib.

c. Every Sikh should take the Hukam (Command) of the Guru Granth Sahib in the ambrosial (early)hours of the

morning before taking meal. If he/she fails to do that, he/she should read or listen to reading from the Guru Granth

Sahib some time during the day. If he/she cannot do that either, during travel etc., or owing to any other impediment,

he/she should not give in to a feeling of guilt.

d. It is desirable that every Sikh should carry on a continuous reading of the Guru Granth Sahib and complete a full r

eading in one or two months or over a longer period.

e. While undertaking a full reading of the Guru Granth Sahib , one should recite the Anand Sahib (the first five and the

last stanzas) and perform the Ardas. One should, thereafter, read the Japuji. Akhand Path (Uninterrupted-Non-stop-

Completion of the reading of the Guru Granth Sahib)

Article IX

a. The non-stop reading of the Guru Granth Sahib is carried on at hard times or on occasions of elation or joy.

It takes approximately fortyeight hours. The non-stop reading implies continuous, uninterrupted reading.

The reading must be clear and correct. Reading too fast, so that the person listening in to it cannot follow the

contents, amounts to irreverence to the Scriptures. The reading should be correct and clear, due care being

bestowed on consonant and vowel even though that

takes a little longer to complete.

b. Whichever family or congregation undertakes the non-stop reading should carry it out itself through its members,

relatives, friends, etc., all together. The number of reciters is not prescribed.

If a person, himself, cannot read, he should listen in to the reading by some competent reader. However, it

should never be allowed to happen that the reader carries on the reading all by himself/herself and no member

of the congregation or the family is listening in to the reading. The reader should be served with food and clothing to the best of the host's means.

c. Placing a pitcher, ceremonial clarified-butter-fed lamp, coconut, etc. around, during the course of the uninterrupted or any o

ther reading of Guru Granth Sahib, or reading of other Scriptural texts side by side with or in the course of such reading is contrary

to the gurmat (Guru's way).

Commencing the Non-Stop Reading (Akhandpath)

Article X <a name="article10">

While undertaking the intermittent reading of the whole Guru Granth Sahib, the sacred pudding (Karhah Prashad) for offering

should be brought and after reciting the Anand Sahib (six stanzas) and offering Ardas, Hukam should be taken.

While beginning the unbroken reading, the sacred pudding should first be laid. Thereafter, after reciting the Anand Sahib

(six stanzas), offering the Ardas and taking the Hukam, the reading should he commenced. Concluding the Reading

Article XI

a. The reading of the whole Guru Granth Sahib (intermittent or non-stop) may be concluded with the reading of Mundawani or the

Rag Mala according to the convention traditionally observed at the concerned place. (Since there is a difference of opinion within

the Panth on this issue, nobody should dare to write or print a copy of the Guru Granth Sahib excluding the Rag Mala). Thereafter,

after reciting the Anand Sahib, the Ardas of the conclusion of the reading should be offered and the sacred pudding (Karhah Prashad)

distributed.

b. On the conclusion of the reading, offering of draperies, fly-whisk and awning, having regard to the requirements of the Guru Granth

Sahib, and of other things, for Panthic causes, should be made to the best of means.

the post of LATE K S Deep ji leaves nothing unanswered.

As far the paath on digital media, Gurbaani in any kind of media has to be treated

with utmost respect & regard , all other maryada may be followed as we are

reciting gurbani from Guru Sahib ji

    • Don't focus too much on it. I had a friend who was getting Darshan of various deities, it all stopped because he became obsessed with it. Just remember this is all Maya, focus on Akaal only. Why care about the future when we ourselves have no power to change it?

      Fateh   Does anyone know of any Gurdwara that have Amrit Vela Simran/Kirtan in Coventry? I would like to attend but dont know of any throughout the week.   thanks

      Pali is a dialect of Prakrit, in that you are correct. But lets correct some of your other points: The word 'Sanskrit' does not occur anywhere in the Vedas. Not a single verse mentions this word as denoting a language. The father of Sanskrit himself: Panini, says that the language of the Hindu Vedas was the  Chandasa language, not Sanskrit. Are you TejS coming before us today claiming to be more of an authority on Sanskrit than Panini himself ?  because the father of Sanskrit himself says Sanskrit came about much much later !   Buddha, when tasked with putting his teachings down into the tongues of the people chose Prakhrit and others. Not once did he even mention the word Sanskrit let alone write anything in it. This shows that Sanskrit didn't even exist at the time of Bhudda.  Every single coin and written artefact found in the Punjab since time immemorial has inscriptions in Prakrit. Not one single thing written in Sanskrit has been found. Not one. And remember, every single archeological coin and artefact found in Punjab (bar a very small number) has Prakrit written in the Aramaic script that our Punjabi forefathers wrote in. Nothing written in the Hindu's scared devangari script has ever been found in Punjab. Even far away from Punjab at the historic nanaghat caves in western India where India's oldest writings are found on the cave walls; all the writing is in Prakrit. Nothing there was written in any language called Sanskrit because such a language did not yet exist. Bahmans would invent it later as a tool of subjugating the people. That's where you fit in the picture. In order to peddle the filth of saffronisation in India the Hindu nationalists need fools to carry the made up and distorted message. Like I said, that's where you fit into the picture. Your forum avatar and past affiliation with the pakandi nang Niddar Singh has been duly noted by all. Your nang group proudly proclaims that Sikh warriors exist to protect the Hindu legacy. Fair play to you....you're certainly being true to what you believe. btw....Apabrahmsa is Prakrit.
