Query About Meat

Recommended Posts

Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh.

is it true that one of Guru Amar Das Jee's relative was a veshnu (vegetarian hindu)?

and when guru amar das jee started the langar, the veshnu guy came, and saw there was meat being served...

and since the veshnu guy could'nt eat it, so guru amar das jee made the langar vegetarian??? so everyone can eat it, and not feel left out?

is this true, or is this bubbles im hearing?

REQUEST TO ADMIN, PLEASE DO NOT LOCK THIS TOPIC, LET THE SANGAT GIVE THEIR VIEWS PLEASE.

IF THIS GOES OFF, THEN YOU MAY LOCK THE TOPIC :)

Guru Amar Das ji before coming into the Sangat of Guru Angad Dev Ji Maharaj was a very religious Vaishanavite Hindu who spent most of their life performing all of the ritual pilgrimages and fasts of a devout Hindu. This meant they were a vegetarian even before getting darshan of Maharaj. Therefore theres no question of them serving meat in langar.

Any historical event has to correlate to SGGS Ji Maharajh , otherwise it has to be considered as an adulteration as per:

(੧੩੭੪-੧੧, ਸਲੋਕ, ਭਗਤ ਕਬੀਰ ਜੀ)

ਕਬੀਰ ਜੋਰੀ ਕੀਏ ਜੁਲਮੁ ਹੈ ਕਹਤਾ ਨਾਉ ਹਲਾਲੁ ॥

kabeer joree keeeae julam hai kehathaa naao halaal ||

Kabeer, to use force is tyranny, even if you call it legal.

why do we care?

Did You know ?

The first war between Sikhs and mughals was over a hunted hawk. Sikhs killed prey claimed by Mughals and refused to part with it. This resulted in first Sikh Mughal War, which was won by Sikhs.

What will you do now?

Please let me clarify this. Guru Gobind Singh kept the Baaz and wore a Kalgi because the Mughals had banned non Muslims form both these.

Both were acts of defiance by Guruji.

Also its my humble opinion that as one rises spiritually one gets a dislike for non veg food.

The battle was over the hawk that was captured by the Sikhs of Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, not its prey. The sikhs refused to part with the hawk and so a battle ensued, won by Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. If you are hinting that Guru Ji hunted, then yes Guru Ji did and there was a number of reasons for this, BUT none of these reasons was hunting for food. Any soul

that is elevated will shun eating meat. Ask any spiritually enlightened soul, they will not eat meat. Guru Ji is pure as pure can be and there should be no doubt that Guru Ji refrained from eating meat, they ate simple food - pulses, daal, sabzi, roti, very simple food, for their real food was being attached to Akaal Purkh at all times.

    • 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.
