A Woman As A Panch Pyara?

Recommended Posts

Seva is a route to cleansing the genderless soul of its previous Karam through service of other people and honest causes.

Mata sahib kaur added the sweet pataashe to the holy nectar while Shiri Guru Gobind Singh stirred the shakti of Akal Purakh within the nectar creating the stainless khalsa, my mother also drank the nectar and became khalsa. What is the difference of gender in khalsa, maybe we should of explained that to dhan dhan Mai bhago, that as sikhs,men and women have their set roles as per gristi, so carry on making the rotia? I don't think so sikhi, As rightly said, Mai bhago stayed in the company of Shiri kalgidhar mahraj, as khalsa!

LoL. So ?

If a woman had stood up for giving a head when SatGuru Ji asked, there would have been a woman in the Panj - no doubt.

Wajinder Singh ji, is there any written hukam that a female khalsa is still not equal enough in comparison to a male khalsa and cannot do amrit sanchar or represent a panj pyara? Or is it us still as males, that we cannot disassociate ourselves with our ahankar of being a male in a male dominant world, where we have lost the understanding of a genderless atma and attach gender on the courageous act of the original panj pyare setting the 5 characteristics of the genderless khalsa of Shiri Guru Gobind Singh, created to instill courage and grant mukhti to the atma, to become sant saphae!

next you will ask why were the 10 Gurus male and none of them women! Where does this end??

The truth is that 5 Male passed the test the Guru gave...

Sikhiseeker, you will not get anywhere by arguing why this why that. There are other things we can use our energy like Naam Simran, Amrit Vela, Reading Gurbani, listening kirtan and doing Sangat at the Guru...

and doing seva of course

Dear brother,

I have not asked why the gurus were all male. This has no relevance to our previous posts to one another. Our debate, not argument is based on women becoming a panj pyara for nagar kirtans. As you asked me a question on the definition of seva, I answered, I asked you a question as you sound to be a intellectual Sikh if there is any written hukam from the guru or one of the scholars that a female who has been initiated into the Khalsa Panth cannot serve as a panch pyara, you never answered yet you are adamant that they cant? You put emphasis on gender, but gender in this life is irrelevant. We all have the same purpose of remerging with Akal purakh waheguru as by the Sikh path, mukhti is granted once the Khalsa is adopted and followed. The original panj pyare set the character of what the Khalsa represents. We all strive to follow that character, male and female alike. If male and female have the same Amrit sanchar, drink the same holy nectar through the same sarbloh, have the same initiation and told to recite the same words, then are gifted with the same panj kakkar and are instructed to live life as per the same gurmat, where is gender actually mentioned my brother?

Again is it our own ahankar of being male in a male dominant world, as our Guru never stopped our mothers and sisters fighting on a battlefield with men, the Amrit is for the atma of a human. What "other" seva would you permit our grandmother mata gujri to do? How was the shaheedi any less or anymore from bhai mati das to that of bibi charan kaur? None rite, so why shouldn't a female who is pure guru roop Khalsa not have the opportunity to serve as a panj pyara.

The word Khalsa derives from a Arabic word Khaal-saa which means pure and free, it is us who don't understand the equality what the guru set. Someone also on this topic asked me how far does my equality go, my answer is 100 % because we do not understand the meaning of atma, we only understand our physical roop. Look at the term sant siphae, it is you Mann what becomes shaanth and your soul becomes sant, your body becomes siphae? Does this transformation have Gender in its essence?

Also thank you for the suggestions on how I can spend my time, I am trying to advance my spiritual growth via the paths you kindly mentioned, also I'm trying to understand the gian, within the gian to further understand the limitless actions of our Gurus, our Shaheed and the granths and obviously the Shiri Guru Granth Sahib itself.

Q. Can there be a woman in Panj pyare

A. No

Q. Reason.

A. Because as from Guru Nanak Dev ji a test was given to the Sangat, one Sikh (male) passed during that time- Bhai Leina ji or Guru Angad Dev ji.

In the case of Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji's test - 5 Sikhs (again male) passed. There were women in the congregation but none of them stood up. Guru ji asked a head of a Sikh not a 'man'.

So from that day (April 1699), 5 Nitnemi Amrtidhari Singh( baptised male Sikh) take part in the Amrit Sanchar in the form of Panj Pyare. As to Rehit nama - they are for the code of conduct of a Sikh as to how to lead the life as per the hukam - which is not as a Panj pyara. Did Guru ji advise or give HUKAM to a Sikh to be a Panj pyara once in their life?

What they did advice, is what I wrote above in the previous post.

Do you want to accept it is as an answer? If no, Its your choice.

    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.

    • 5 Cancer Fighting Foods Backed By Scientific Research by Anthony Gucciardi When we talk about the idea of taking back control in your life, it is absolutely essential that we talk about one of life's most important fundamentals: your health. The truth is, you most certainly can eat your way to optimum health – and it can actually be a very enjoyable (and delicious) experience. Here's 5 cancer fighting foods that are backed by scientific research to start adding into your daily optimum health routine: 1. Tea Enjoying a cup of tea is anything but a chore, and the reality is that plant-based teas can offer some very significant anti-cancer properties. Tea contains a family of natural compounds known as flavonoids, which are the phytonutrients responsible for the beautiful colors we see in fruits and vegetables. But in addition to playing a role in the vivid colorization of produce, flavonoids are also known for their powerful antioxidant effects. In particular, a flavonoid in tea called kaempferol has been pegged to help in the fight against cancer. According to an expansive Harvard University study that studied more than 66,000 women, participants who consumed more kaempferol were found to have the lowest rates of ovarian cancer. 2. Brussels Sprouts Brussels sprouts are the new kale, with various brussels-based recipes and preparation ideas popping up on social media almost daily. This happens to be a very beneficial trend, as eating brussels sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower) can be an excellent choice in the fight against cancer and your journey towards optimum health. What's interesting about the research here is that scientists were able to identify some inspiring protective properties against both prostate and colon cancers with the consumption of cruciferous vegetables, but the substances required to produce the results may only be released during the cutting or chewing of the vegetables. One study, as reported by WebMD, found that: “In mice grafted with human prostate tumors and then treated with one of these cancer-killing substances, tumors began to shrink to half their size after 31 days.“ The promising results may have to do with the enzyme phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), which is found naturally in cruciferous vegetables. Other studies have examined the antioxidant called sulforaphane, which is also released when you chew up cruciferous vegetables. 3. Turmeric If you haven't already started spicing up your meals with turmeric, now is the time to start. As a member of the ginger family, the turmeric plant has been used in both Indian cuisine and ancient schools of medicine for thousands of years. Now, quite some time later, researchers and nutritionists are finally getting excited about what turmeric can do. One such study that gained recent notoriety in the news cycle focused on the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin (turmeric's active ingredient) on the body. Published in the Journal of Clinical & Cellular Immunology, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston found that curcumin exhibited anti-inflammatory capabilities that could help in the fight against cancer and most other disease. "Most diseases are caused by chronic inflammation that persists over long periods of time," wrote biochemist Bharat B. Aggarwal, PhD, from The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. 4. Black Raspberries Yet another great tasting option, berries have been shown to help in the fight against one of America's most deadly conditions. In particular, black raspberries may be the best bet. It has been found that black raspberries contain a significant amount of phytochemicals known as anthocyanins, which could help to halt or slow the development of premalignant cells. One professor of internal medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine has even authored a book titled “Berries and Cancer Prevention” which details all of the ways in which berries wage war against cancer growth. 5. Vitamin D Not a 'food' per se, but vitamin D is such a uniquely important anti-cancer agent that it is a must-have in your arsenal against cancer. The research here is pretty clear, and even the National Cancer Institute has a lengthy page dedicated to vitamin D and its effects. In research surrounding cancer cells and tumors in mice, vitamin D was discovered to potentially slow or prevent the onset of cancer, inhibit cancer cell growth, reduce tumor vessel formation, and more. Addition pieces of literature focused on the association between vitamin D levels and death rates for some cancers. Participants living in areas with a higher amount of sunlight exposure were found to have lower rates of these cancers, which researchers stated could be due to the difference in vitamin D levels. Taking control of your health is more than just important, it's essential to living the life that you deserve to create for yourself. Adding these foods and others into your daily routine can be a step in the right direction towards securing your optimum state of health.
