Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Sangat Jeo,

http://sikhscriptures2english.blogspot.com/

"This is an excellent new blog that has been started by our Veerji kam1825. It will be updated regularly and will be translations of Sri Nanak Prakash, which is the first section of Gurpratap Suraj Prakash Granth.Sri Nanak Prakash is the section that deals with Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji. It has been praised by all traditional schools of Sikhi, including all Taksals (Damdami, Bhindran, Amritsarr), Nirmala Samparadya, Udasi Sampradya, Nihang Sampardaya and Hazuri Sikhs. To this date it is the main source of history in regards to Guru Nanak Dev Ji . The author, Kavi Santokh Singh Ji is from the Nirmala Sampradaya and has lineage that goes back to Guru Gobind Singh Ji."

I know this has been posted here before but this is one blog that deserves much more exposure, so I am making this a sticky.

Gurfateh!

Thanks Singh. The second Adhyai of the Sri Nanak Parkash has been completed today so the third Adhyai will begin tomorrow. The introduction to the birth of the Aad Guru is almost complete.

The blog has been updated with a new layout thanks to Bhai Jvala Singh Ji.

If you have not had a look at the blog take a look obviously the blog is not everones cup of tea as we only seem to get about 20 hits a day!!!!

It makes me wonder what Sikhs of today are actually bothered about?

Yes veerji, it saddens me too that our youth aren't really interested in learning.. their total energy seems to be dedicated to fighting amongst themselves. And yet we call ourselves Sikhs.. But do not let it put you off veerji for what you are doing hasn't really been attempted before.. if your translations are able to generate pyaar for Guruji Sahib in the heart of even one gurmukh, consider your sewa parvaan. I have nothing but utmost respect for you veerji, I pray that Waheguru Ji keep you in Chardi Kalaa forever.

Thanks jee - seva is appreciated.

Would it be possible to post a link of a PDF version on the blog of the translations as they occur? This will make it easier to print off and read, or even view on smartphones/iPhones.

Waheguroo

Chooramani means "Jewel in the crown". {See Mahan kosh}{Encyclopedia of Punjabi sahit=literature}.

Rachat means "Whose work it is".

This blog is amazing! The only source for Sri Nanak Parkash in English. At a time when most books on Sikh history in English are written with a missionary style interpretation of our history, it is tryuly invaluable.

Hope it is saved somewhere safe to be made a proper book one day.

Thank you Veer ji , this sewa has cleared many doubts that I had about how Guru ji's father was ... if one was to go by standard texts in english you would think there was no love at all just irka and krodh . Plus it is great to see how much piare and satkar Guru ji gave to his whole family truly a good example to our youth

    • After hearing of the death of Maharani Jind Kaur, novelist Charles Dickens visited Kensal Green Cemetery to see the coffin of the lady whom the British Empire feared. Read his account of the visit from old publications...     In July 1863, writer and author Charles Dickens visited Kensal Green cemetery. A couple of weeks later  he heard that Maharani Jind Kaur died at Abingdon House and her service and temporary burial in the catacoomb of Kensal Green Dissenter's Chapel was arranged by her son Maharajah Duleep SIngh. On the 19th September 1863, Charles Dickens wrote the following two remarks in his weekly journal "All the Year Round":

      "I have read in the papers of the Indian Princess brought here the other day, and whose remains some of her Sikh servants wished to have burnt. The coffin was placed in the Dissenters' catacomb, and though a speech was delivered on the virtues of the deceased, the burial is described in the company's registery book by the words "no ceremony". It was a large funeral with many carriages."

      Later in the article Dickens writes: I asked to be taken to the Dissenters' catacomb, that I may see for myself the last resting place of the poor woman whose ashes have been squabbled over, and written on by Sikh and Christian. And down here, in a coffin covered with white velvet, and studded with brass and nails, rests the Indian dancing woman whose strong will and bitter emnity towards England caused Lord Dalhousie to say of her, when in exile, that she was the only person our government near feared. I place my hand on the coffin, and holding the candle obliquely, see a large gilt plate, whereon her name and titles are engraved."   Courtesy of Friends of Kensal Green Cemetery   http://duleepsingh.com/Articles/Article/23
    • I've read more than one contemporary account by goray (who were obviously watching him) explaining away his apparently 'profligate' behaviour as a trait he inherited from his father.  They destroyed his mother's reputation (apparently she was the only one with the bollox to challenge them in Panjab):
    • I am saying that the panj have to have excellent spiritual jeevan ...Bhai Rama Singh ji was one of the panj for me as a kid as far as I know he was not known for proven battle skills or the others but we were all aware of their spiritual depths anyone can develop shastar vidhiya and be bereft of a spiritual side (just look around in the world) . Do we praise Baba Deep Singh for his shastar vidhiya alone or is it his level of Brahmgian in combination with that?
    • I know there are jhatka shops, not sure how jhatka they are in uk. But I don't think that's the point when we were told to jhatka. We are really supposed to do jhatka ourselves so we get a feel with a sword and also be able to see blood and survival tactic among other stuff. There are so many of us, how can sikh community make this more practical in uk?
    • there were regular reports of the soldiers raping girls until  death etc and also think how they insulted sikhs by converting their chief's son introduced and encouraged him into the filthy habits of gambling, whoring  and drinking/smoking then marrying him off to a nejaiz aulad of muslimah african,  after promising him freedom and an allowance of which only half was ever paid thus inevitably he impoverished his family. His wife was unhappy as her sons were also encouraged to behave the same by their controllers , the daughters however seemed to be aware and wanted to rebel.
