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

    • Simran345, here is a pangti on SGGS 558, it seems to be talking about darshan which happened in a dream. Now sleep is being called as blessed so that the darshan of God can happen again. ਇਕੁ ਨ ਰੁਨਾ ਮੇਰੇ ਤਨ ਕਾ ਬਿਰਹਾ ਜਿਨਿ ਹਉ ਪਿਰਹੁ ਵਿਛੋੜੀ ॥ 
      इकु न रुना मेरे तन का बिरहा जिनि हउ पिरहु विछोड़ी ॥ 
      Ik na runā mere ṯan kā birhā jin ha▫o pirahu vicẖẖoṛī. 
      But one thing, my Body's soul weeps not, which has separated me from my beloved. 
      ਪਰ ਇਕ ਸ਼ੈ, ਮੇਰੀ ਦੇਹ ਦੀ ਵਿਛੁੜੀ ਹੋਈ ਆਤਮਾ ਰੋਂਦੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਜਿਸ ਨੇ ਮੈਨੂੰ ਮੇਰੇ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਮ ਨਾਲੋਂ ਵੱਖ ਕਰ ਛੱਡਿਆ ਹੈ। 
        ਸੁਪਨੈ ਆਇਆ ਭੀ ਗਇਆ ਮੈ ਜਲੁ ਭਰਿਆ ਰੋਇ ॥ 
      सुपनै आइआ भी गइआ मै जलु भरिआ रोइ ॥ 
      Supnai ā▫i▫ā bẖī ga▫i▫ā mai jal bẖari▫ā ro▫e. 
      He came to me in my dream and again went away, upon which I wept copious tears. 
      ਉਹ ਮੇਰੇ ਸੁਫਨੇ ਵਿੱਚ ਮੇਰੇ ਕੋਲ ਆਇਆ ਅਤੇ ਫੇਰ ਚਲਿਆ ਗਿਆ, ਜਿਸ ਉਤੇ ਮੈਂ ਹੰਝੂ ਭਰ ਕੇ ਰੋਈ। 
        ਆਇ ਨ ਸਕਾ ਤੁਝ ਕਨਿ ਪਿਆਰੇ ਭੇਜਿ ਨ ਸਕਾ ਕੋਇ ॥ 
      आइ न सका तुझ कनि पिआरे भेजि न सका कोइ ॥ 
      Ā▫e na sakā ṯujẖ kan pi▫āre bẖej na sakā ko▫e. 
      I cannot come to Thee, O my love, nor can I send any one. 
      ਮੈਂ ਤੇਰੇ ਕੋਲ ਨਹੀਂ ਆ ਸਕਦੀ, ਹੇ ਮੇਰੇ ਦਿਲਬਰ! ਨਾਂ ਹੀ ਮੈਂ ਕਿਸੇ ਨੂੰ ਘਲ ਸਕਦੀ ਹਾਂ। 
        ਆਉ ਸਭਾਗੀ ਨੀਦੜੀਏ ਮਤੁ ਸਹੁ ਦੇਖਾ ਸੋਇ ॥ 
      आउ सभागी नीदड़ीए मतु सहु देखा सोइ ॥ 
      Ā▫o sabẖāgī nīḏ▫ṛī▫e maṯ saho ḏekẖā so▫e. 
      Come, O fortunate sleep perhaps I may again, behold that Husband of mine (in dreams). 
      ਆ ਜਾ, ਹੇ ਭਾਗਾਂ ਵਾਲੀਏ ਨੀਂਦ੍ਰੇ! ਸ਼ਾਇਦ ਮੈਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਉਸ ਭਰਤੇ ਨੂੰ ਮੁੜ (ਸੁਪਨੇ ਵਿੱਚ) ਤੱਕ ਲਵਾਂ।      Or do you suppose its meaning is actually different to what is translated ?
    • Do you have sources for this?
    • In urdu we also use 'Mauze' so i doubt if it is hindi word.It sounds like a persian one.Indians have problem prouncing words which end with sound 'z'.Just like Mumtaz Mehal became Mumtaj Mehal and now just Taj Mehal.
    • i have no issue using persian,hindi,english words in my day to day conversations in punjab.I just though a good opportunity to learn "shuddh" punjabi. 
    • Sikhism needs neither a reformation nor a philosophy of free will. Reformations are for religions that are at a primitive tribal level in the first place. Sikhi starts off with Guru Nanak Ji feeding people langar, and preaching meditation of Satnam. If you start off with capturing war booty and sex slaves killing all the males, yeah, you need a reformation. Philosophy is (mostly) for people trying desperately to understand the universe without real divine knowledge. These types of efforts are called ਸਿਆਣਪਾਂ in Gurbani. (You did you Japji this morning, right?) All of these sianapan don't amount to a hill of beans. We don't have the burning need for philosophy that Westerners do because we can obtain complete knowledge via simran. ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੈ ਸਿਮਰਨਿ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਸੁਝੈ ॥
