Khalsa Linage (Jaat) And Rehat

Recommended Posts


Khalsa is not a Hindu Kshytria. Khalsa is the ideal human, and encompasses the good of all four castes - The thought is of a Brahman, which meditates on the Almighty and sees the Almighty in all, the duty of a Kshytria, which protects all from subjugation and oppression as part of their Dharma, the life of a Vaishya, which conducts himself in worldly duties to make a living and be a contributor to society and the Sudra in ego, lowest of the low. I know that someone will chime in with saying that Kshytria is a term to designate a holy warrior that fights for the rights of all, but perhaps they should realize that when the term Kshytria is used in front of anyone, its immediate association is with Hinduism, much like there are those who say that Sanatan Sikhi is traditional Sikhi, but everyone who is versed in Indian terminology knows that Snatan Dharam means Hinduism.

The fact that Dasam Patshah himself preached Kul Nash, the idea of all of your past family associations and caste being no more at the Amrit Sanchar and then himself begged for Amrit and the same Rehat (Kul Nash being a part of it) should make it abundantly clear that the Khalsa was not made part of the Sodhi clan, but rather a Niara Panth, separate from all of the Hindu castes. His own last name was changed to Singh - the author seems to be ignoring this with that statement. So Khalsa Panth is not a "Suraj Bannsya" - if this is true, then the Panth of Guru Nanak is a separate Panth from the Panth of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, as he was from a different genetic family.

So terming Khalsa as Kshytria - perhaps that idea deserves a re-review. And for historical purposes, fine, documenting the genetic lineage of Guru Sahib is fine, but with firm understanding that the Guru ultimately shed his caste to become one of the Khalsa is of prime importance.

Perhaps someone can comment on Giani Gian Singh's comments that Namdharis are more than willing to quote:

Perhaps we should stop relying solely on what scholars write and start to weigh this with what the Gurus themselves say in Gurbani?

    • hey are u the same SheikhYoBooty ?
    • You are right in this respect, I guess I was referring to both the native Pakistanis and the diaspora. I have observed this internal debate between Pakistani Sunnis and Wahabis at close quarters, and honestly it turns into a p!ssing match. Who is the real Sunni and who is the fake - the traditionalists insist they are "real Sunnis", very sufi-centric and not overly fanatic, these people are usually die hard supporters of General Musharraf and defend the Laal Mosque incident with their lives. Here in the UK it goes beyond this, with both groups even refusing to pray Namaz behind eachothers Imams/Maulvis. The Deobandi/W@habi types obviously slam the others for following non-Islamic traditions, and they are gaining huge support. If I remember correctly the slogan is something like: Deoband Deoband, nirra gandh nirra gandh.   In many ways, it's not too different between the splits we have over ideology in Sikhi. Again this is probably more prevalent in the west. Probably. Kurban, Kurbani are both mentioned in Gurbani. We say it in the Ardas everyday: "Gurdwaraiyan di seva layi kurbaaniyan kityaan"
    • Well I live in Pakistan and i never came across someone wearing Jubba.But i can't speak for overseas Pakistanis.
    • CCTV camera has clear evidence for UK Sikh MPs to demand release to investigate closeup view. Jaggi mom in law said his passport was demanded prior to arrest as mine was for email to indian embassy, asking why they commit atrocities. $ is what causing blind justice to VERY OBVIOUS CRIMES by rss modi aka congress...$$$$ rules world better than virtues...but in God reign, NAAM LAHA RULES AND WILL OVERCOME ALL...SLOWLY BUT >>SURELY<<
