Can someone please provide some background on Dr Kartar Singh Solan. Most of the books above are authored by him.

Who was he? Was he affiliated with any group/sampardaee etc?/

Dr. Kartar Singh was a medical practioner by profession. He left for heavenly abode in 980. He had great interest in Gurbani and not only studied it but followed the teachings of Gurbani in his life. And preached the same throughout his life. He always placed Gurbani above any individual and used to say that whenever anybody expresses his views about spiritualiy, we should ask him to give some Gurbani quotation in its support. If he fails, just reject the views howsoever great that person may be. The reason is that nobody can not be above Gurbani as Gurbani is the word of GOD which descended into the heart of the GURUs. Thats why, you will notice that in his book"Fundamentals of Sikhism" he has quoted the Gurbani from all the Gurus in support of the different topics chosen by him.

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh


Correction:

He left for heavenly abode in 1980

    • Yeah it does man. You need to keep Amritvela, it's a rule not a guideline. The whole point of it is discipline and starting your day with Satguru Ji's blessing.
    • Here's a mind dump of my thoughts as fast I can get them out as I should be doing something else when I write this post!!! (i.e. work!!) The importance of AmritVela can't be under estimated There wont be any "progression" without it Progression only comes from Guru's grace but Guru jee is looking for your effort That said executive orders/Nadar/glances of grace from Maharaj can waiver all situations but to depend on this should be frowned upon as Maharaj wants effort I heard in a katha once that a person who bows before the Guru, physically or mentally, during Amritvela wont have to bow/seek the help of others  The ultimate way to get up at AmritVela is have to a huge amount of Prem for Maharaaj However, sustaining Prem and therefore AmritVela in my experience is very hard and depends on your circumstances - e.g. where you are in your journey, your environment, your habits/lifestyle/the company you have etc  the day before AmritVela plays a big part on whether you'll wake up and get up at AmritVela e.g. watching Game of Thrones at 10pm the night before will have an impact!! How hungry are you for it? I would try to avoid the question of is AmritVela a requirement.  Try your best to "do" AmritVela in whatever way you can. Don't be lazy but don't beat yourself up about it either as it could hamper motivation. Ultimately Maharaj knows your situation.
    • I agree that the older lot were more clued up and also thought ahead as opposed to the younger kharkoos being short sighted and ready to become shaheed. From what I know of Sohan is that he later on stage possibly in 98 addressed the GOI type of crowd with 'Jai Hind' while he also retracted that he ever was a Khalistani. 
    • Yes it makes sense, but does the same apply to an amritdhari?
    • People cut Kesh for appearance purposes, there really isn't much more than that, Sikh or Non-Sikhs. Some monks however, completely shave their head, but they are the exception not the rule.
