I'm not from BC but know Singhs there and have visited. From what I know, Giani Kuldeep Singh Jee at Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara gives Taksali Santhia of both Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee and Sri Dasam Granth. He's a Nihang Singh who took his Vidya from Taksaal. Very humble and amazing Gursikh. From what I know, most of the Taksali and Nihang Singhs as well as many of the AKJ Singhs take Santhia from him.

Baba Jee's my ustaad! :)

He's super knowledgable and yeah he took vidya from all Mahapurakhs from Sant Gurbachan Singh Jee's time to Sant Jarnail Singh Jee. He was also the Ustaad of Shaheeds Jinda and Sukha. He has Sri Guru Granth Sahib Jee Santhia online and some Bania from Dasam Granth (Nitnem Banis and Sunder Gutka Banis). Its both Arth and pronunciation.

So I live in Surrey B.C. and I was wondering where one can get the best santheya for SGGS and Dasam Granth Sahib?

I kinda have this dream of becoming a full-time Taksali but I'm still young. For some reason I feel I should become a Granthi or other Panthic person rather than be a doctor or engineer or something. I am willing to dedicate my future for the Panth. You are probably thinking " This kids crazy" but I think I know what decision I am making.

I know how to do a lot of bani already but I wish I could do it with best pronunciation.

I have heard you can go to Gurdwara Sahib Amrit Prakash but is there any advice that anyone has?

checkout http://www.gursevak.com/

Not sure if Bhagat Ji is still teaching in Edmonton Canada but they were blessed with Seva by Sant Gurbachan Singh Khalsa to do parchar abroad.

Thats great new veer... santhiya is first step in taksal. It's been said bhramgyani baba thakur singh ji used to give this priceless japji sahib teeka below along with panj granthi steek to only those who would pass santhiaya/gurbani ucharan and basic sikhi spiritual exam.

In depth they really take it slow, listen to previous Katha, erm well it's took a year on and off for this much so really up to them theyve probably got other commitments

I'll find out if we can get this first chunk

Not sure about contents in exam but thats what i heard from gurmukh who spent time in taksal and nirmal akharas in the past not sure if they still follow this criteria. This japji sahib teeka is rare gem it wasn't given out to vidyarates right away as you need some level of knowledge to read it let alone grasp the contents of it. It's quite deep as its japji sahib in question and answers form between sidhas and Satguru nanak dev ji, sikhs and Satguru nanak dev ji.

Here are some of topics from teeka by maharaj kirpa i managed to share and translate some of commentary:

I will try to share more, came across with interesting transcendental updesh by satguru nanak dev ji to sidhas since sidhas were stuck in pure hatha yog/occult powers, during katha of japji sahib satguru ji gave updesh to sidhas to adapt gyan (jnana marg) to transcedent their surti whereas to sikhs -maharaj told to adapt- bhau bhagti(prema bhagti-gyan) marg.

    • "monatosingh", this is just an opinion:

      It would seem to me that candidates for amrit should refrain from sporting any symbols that are particularly associated in the minds of the Sangat with being an Amritdhari Singh. I think that would include chand/tor/khanda on dastar and kirpan (particularly on the outside).

      As for kakkars candidates can wear 4 symbols, and then start to wear the 5th (kirpan) on the day of their Amrit Sanchar.

      The reason is that Sangat reposes immense faith in the symbols of the Tenth Guru and those Sikhs who have committed to them. To be seen as a committed Singh of the 10th Guru without having formally offered up your tan-man-dhan (mind/body/possessions) can seem in the minds of some as false advertising (like wearing an army rank that you don't in fact possess).

      As for chakkar, you may be in the clear if Sangat can clearly see you are not wearing a Kirpan (and are therefore have not received Amrit).

      Good luck on your journey.
    • questions were only brought up after the chabeel attack as a form of justification but I've never seen or heard  anything to back up the accusation
    •   Genie, I agree with the spirit of your suggestions, but I'm afraid the situation for Sikhs in America is much different than it is for Sikhs in England  The biggest difference is our population density, and that makes it harder than you might realize to accomplish some of your goals. America has a population that is 6 times as large as the population of England.  On the other hand, America has only half as many Sikhs as England.  To make matters worse, while Sikhs in England are almost entirely concentrated around the London metropolitan area or the West Midlands (two regions that, by American standards, are very close to each other anyway), Sikhs in America are spread out all over the place.  There are only a few places where we have sizable numbers, and even in those cases, it's not remotely close to what you would find in London, Birmingham, Vancouver, Toronto, etc.  To put this in perspective, take two places where incidents have occurred: Gresham, Oregon and Oak Creek, Wisconsin.  Oregon is on the west coast, so you might think it is close to the Sikh community in California, but it is in fact 1000 miles from where I live in Los Angeles (same distance between London and Madrid).  Oak Creek is about 900 miles from New York, and 2000 miles from Los Angeles (greater than the distance between London and Istanbul). So when you ask Sikhs in America what they are going to do about these incidents, and I'm sitting here in Los Angeles, it would sound like me asking Sikhs in London or Birmingham what they are going to do about a random incident that affected the tiny Sikh communities in Madrid, or Athens, or Rome, or Norway, or Belgium.  It's hard to respond collectively as a "community" when the community is so thinly dispersed.  We just don't have the numbers.   I think having a private security force to protect Gurdwaras is a good idea.  However, I am not sure how feasible it would be in terms of raising the money required to fund such an operation.  Also, I imagine a lot of these Gurdwaras in isolated areas have very few sangat and may only be open irregularly.  Does the Sikh community have the resources to provide private security for Gurdwaras in far off places with just a handful of sangat?  Moreoever, such a security force would not address issues that take place outside of Gurdwaras.   What the Sikh community in America has done is establish organizations such as the Sikh Coalition and SALDEF (Sikh American Legal Defense & Education Fund).  These organizations help spread awareness about the Sikh community and provide legal resources to fight for civil rights and fight against hate crimes.  I think that is actually the most effective use of the community's resources, given how spread out and small we are.   Also, while I share your frustration with Sikhs seemingly fighting for other people's interests and neglecting their own, there is a method to their madness.  With how small we are as a community, one of the most effective ways to fight for and ensure our rights and security is to ally with other groups and organizations who are sympathetic to our plight.  By banding together with other oppressed groups who face similar challenges, we are stronger.     I'll add one thing: I think Sikhs in America should take it upon themselves not to live in the middle of nowhere.  We should try to live in metropolitan areas with a relatively large number of Sikhs and a relatively liberal community.  It is a shame that we are as spread out as we are.
    • *URGENT* Property Sale or Rent: URGENT REQUEST TO ALL There is potential of a halal meat shop opening in close proximity of Singh Sabha Gurdwara Sahib Somerset Road Handsworth Wood. The landlord has been made aware of the offence meat sale at the premises will cause to the Sikh Community which indeed will result in an outright objection by Sikhs across UK who fundamentally condemn this. While he understands this as an issue, he as a businessman has indicated the loss he is making with a vacant property. It is a MIXED USE commercial property with self-contained accommodation above. The property already has a constant rental income for the accommodation. There are 2 urgent options proposed to the Sikh Community: Purchase of the property (Currently on market for £149,995, offers are invited) Letting the property on a long-term lease As the Gurdwara are not currently in a position to undertake either of the above options, *we* *are calling upon anyone that may be interested in pursuing the request* Specifications of the property with both options can be made available upon request. The property is located on Somerset Road, Handsworth Wood, Birmingham, B20 2JG. For further information or to express an interest please contact Mandeep Singh, Committee Member of Singh Sabha Gurdwara, Handsworth Wood on 07584374686 or email any inquiries to singhsabhagurdw
      ara@live.com. We urge all members of the sangat to spread this advertisement as much as possible. Thank you- Singh Sabha Gurdwara, Somerset Road.
