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

what does choormani and rachat mean.

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

    • Heretic or a Turk. Both are repulsive. The heretic is an internal threat where as the Turk is external. Whether or not he's insulted the Gurus (as of yet), is not the issue. It's the fact that he's Turk-Beeraj.
    • I do not believe in an absolute morality, dharam is not the same for each and every individual. This is not to say that dharam does not exist, only that it doesn't exist in a monolithic form.  This concept is reflected very well in the life of the Mahapurakh Sant Baba Thakur Singh, 14th jathedar of Damdami Taksaal. Babaji was a strict vegetarian like all members of Taksaal, so for him eating meat was a great sin. However when he visited the chaunis (encampments) of Nihang Singhs around Chowk Mehta he would often bring offerings of goats to be jhatkaa'd by the nihangs and later consumed. Because eating meat was not a great paap for them as it was for babaji, rather it was their tradition and he respected that the role they were given by the Almighty was different from his own.  Satguru's Hukam affects each person differently.  Eastern dharams tend not to impose moral codes on the whole of humankind, as though such codes apply to everybody. Yes there are certain basic guiding principles of human morality - don't murder, don't rape, but most sane people don't really need to be told not to do these things by a religion because they feel an inherent revulsion towards them. However beyond this things can get quite flexible. Some people are meant to be householders and provide for a family, whilst others are meant to be celibates and devote their lives and all their energy to Akaal Purakh and Seva of the Panth. If God creates someone with the intention that they will become a warrior, battle becomes dharam for this person, a righteous deed. If however God creates a man and by his hukam determines that this man is to be peaceful saint, battle is adharam for him, not righteous. This is why different sampardas/jathebandiaan exist in Sikhi. Guru Ji is not/was not anti-samparda or anti-jathebandi, if they were, they wouldn't have created or blessed so many of them themselves. I don't know if what I'm saying is right, but this is the conclusion I have arrived at from my study of Sikhi. Others will have arrived at different conclusions, and good thing too -  Sikhi is a garden full of many diverse flowers.  I do not believe Guru Ji aspired to make all Sikhs, or all people,  identical in their religious outlook and practice. 
    • So you think that Sikhs and Muslims need to remain bitter enemies for as long as this world exists?   And because of 84 do we also need to become eternal enemies of the Hindus forever and ever?   Yesterday Hindus were our friends but they ended up knifing us in the back. And Yesterday's enemies can become strategic allies of today. Try to see the bigger picture.
