Fateh Ji,

nice program, shame it was told by a Naamdhari, who has aknowledged Ram Singh as a Guru which is gives reason to believe Guru Granth Sahib Ji is not Guru when infact they are...

He goes on to big up the NaamDhari's and comes up with fake history of Guru Gobind Singh Ji making 'Sant Khalsa'....

listen to the last 15minz of the prog.

very upsetting, but nothing can be done about it now.

Bhul Chuk Maaf

Fateh ji.

well obviously a namdhari would acknowledge guru ram singh as guru. were not telling anione to not believe ad granth sahib ji as guru. and whsat he stated about guru ram singh and the sant khalsa are all facts. i believe this is an excellenat approach kooke have done to spread sikhi especially through the bbc. stories of dasam pita were mention and katha like this should be encouraged at a public level. only i we have ekta ion our comunity to do stuff like this will we be sucessful in preaching sikhi to our younger generation. and yes t guru ram singh ji is par of sikhi even non namdharis acnowledge him for what was done and respectfully call him baba ram singh ji.

lets not destroy this thread by making it into a naamdhari discussion guys. plz, save the bs for some other time.

anyways, a point that was made in the video, the chardi kala language that was given to khalsa by maharaj, in today's world known as nihang boli. can somebody list all the differnt words of this boli? like with the meanings? (if this is going off topic, somebody plz let me know, ill just start a new thread)

Fateh Ji,

Gurbani says : Holi kiini sant sev, ragh laaga att lal dev.

Problem today is Holi has been reduced to troubling people and drinking Bhang.

Compare these with the Hola Mahala celebration in Anandpur Sahib:

18,207 units of blood were collected at Anadpur Sahib

There's a very telling photograph of two Nihangs applying color on each other.... very very degnified. I'll try to get it and post it in my next post.

Fateh ji,

Point taken, and a valid one too. I'm all for Ekta, but my point being those that do not believe Guru Granth Sahib Ji is Maharaj, how can we accept them into the panth?

Same goes for ppl who dont believe in Raagmala, or parts of Dasam Granth Ji?

Before ppl start thinking i'm having a digg, i'm just making vichaar on a thought i have and perhaps 'A' answer could be found within the cyber sangat?

Forgive me for any mistakes..

Fateh ji!

i understand what u are saying however how can an individual or a group of people have the authority to decide who is allowed in the sikh panth or not. this can only be done by the guru and akal purakh waheguru himself. according to gurbani this is the definition of what asikh is :ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ ਸੁ ਭਲਕੇ ਉਠਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥

gur sathigur kaa jo sikh akhaaeae s bhalakae outh har naam dhhiaavai ||

One who calls himself a Sikh of the Guru the True Guru shall rise in the early morning hours and meditate on the Lord's Name.

namdharis do believe in raagmala , every single pavitar ang in ad sri granth sahib ji, and dasam granth sahib ji. i can assure you that just because we do not regard ad sri granth sahib ji as having the guruship does not mean that we do not respect it. from personal observation i believe that namdharis respect ad and dasam garnth sahib ji more than many who consider it as a guru in many gurudhwaras.

    • I haven't cried of laughter reading something on Sikh Sangat in a while. Last thing I remember was by Mehtab Singh paji
    • I'm not sure what the point of this post is? 
    • Whose authority do SWAT need? 
    •   The Power of Prayer Dr. Mark, a well-known cancer specialist, was once on his way to an important conference in another city where he was going to be granted an award in the field of medical research. He was very excited to attend the conference and was desperate to reach as soon as possible. He had worked long and hard on his research and felt his efforts deserved the award he was about to obtain. However, two hours after the plane took off, the plane made an emergency landing at the nearest airport due to some technical snag. Afraid, that he wouldn’t make it in time for the conference, Dr. Mark immediately went to the reception and found that the next flight to the destination was after ten hours. The receptionist suggested him, to rent a car and drive himself down to the conference city which was only four hours away. Having no other choice, he agreed to the idea despite his hatred for driving long distances. Dr. Mark rented a car and started his journey. However, soon after he left, the weather suddenly changed and a heavy storm began. The pouring rain made it very difficult for him to see and he missed a turn he was supposed to take. After two hours of driving, he was convinced he was lost. Driving in the heavy rain on a deserted road, feeling hungry and tired, he frantically began to look for any sign of civilization. After some time, he finally came across a small tattered house. Desperate, he got out of the car and knocked on the door. A beautiful lady opened the door. He explained the matter and asked her if he could use her telephone. However, the lady told him that she doesn’t have a phone or any electronic gadget but told the doctor to come inside and wait till the weather improved. Hungry, wet and exhausted, the doctor accepted her kind offer and walked in. The lady gave him hot tea and something to eat. The lady told him that he can join her for prayer. But, Dr. Mark smiled and said that he believed in hard work only and told her to continue with her prayers. Sitting on the table and sipping the tea, the doctor watched the woman in the dim light of candles as she prayed next to what appeared to be a small baby crib. Every time she finished a prayer, she would start another one. Feeling that the woman might be in need of help, the doctor seized the opportunity to speak as soon as she finished her prayers. The doctor asked her what exactly she wanted from the God and enquired if she thought God will ever listen to her prayers. He further asked about the small child in the crib for whom she was apparently praying. The lady gave a sad smile and said that the child in the crib is her son who is suffering from a rare type of cancer and there is only one doctor Mark who can cure him but she doesn’t have money to afford his fee and moreover Dr Mark lives in another far off town. She said that God has not answered her prayer so far, but said that God will create some way out one day, and added that she will not allow her fears to overcome her faith. Stunned and speechless, Dr Mark was in tears which were rolling down his cheeks. He whispered, God is great and recollected the sequence of events. ….there was malfunction in the plane, a thunderstorm hit, and he lost his way; and all of this happened because God did not just answer her prayer but also gave him a chance to come out of materialistic world and give some time to the poor helpless people who have nothing but rich prayers.
    •                                                              FOCUS ON PERSONAL OBJECTIVES   A youth went to the church father and said “father, I won't be going to church anymore.”
      The Fr. responded “But why?”
      The youth said “Ah! I saw a sister speaking bad of another sister; a brother that can't read well; the worship team living wrong; people looking at their phone during service;among so many other things wrong in the church.”
      The Fr. replied “OK. But before you go, do me a favor: take a full glass of water and walk three times around the church without spilling a drop on the floor. Afterwards, leave the church if you desire.”
      The youth thought : too easy!
      And he walked three times around as the Fr had asked. When he finished he told the pastor he was ready.
      And the Fr. asked “When you were walking around the church, did you see a sister speaking bad about another sister?”
      The youth replied “no.”
      “did you see anyone looking at their phone?”
      “No”
      “You know why?”
      “No”
      “You were focused on the glass, to make sure you didn't tip it and spill any water. It's the same with our life. When our mind is focused on our own objectives, we don't have time to get distracted by others` actions/karam .”
