MANINDER SINGH (SRI NAGAR vALE) DEMANDS £3100 for kirtan programme

Gurfateh Ji

It has come to light that Maninder Singh (sri nagar vale) who is known for preferring singing geets to shabads has demanded over £3100 plus business class tickets to come to the UK for a programme in Leicester.

Since when did Ragis become so commercialised? I am so disappointed by hearing this news as all I hear is that Ragis want so much money. Where has the love for Gurbani gone? I accept that this this is their livelihood but surely demanding so much money is just greed. If he wants to become a pop star then he should give up kirtan.

I dont think so. They say daler mehndi was a kirtaniya, but he gave that up and became a pop star, gayek, because he said he earned more and got more respect too than as a kirtaniya. He said he was treated like a lowly servant before.

Im glad kirtan is in so much demand, that kirtaniye can demand that much money. We r willing to pay pop stars that much but not ppl whove dedicated their whole lives to raag?

Ofc if he charges too much, dont invite him. Guruji ended the tradition of formal kirtaniye, and taught us all kirtan, and there are many youngsters who can do kirtan in the uk. Invite local kids to do kirtan. Also many famous kirtaniye live in the uk, like Gurbir Singh, Hazara Singh scotland, and many jathas that do better kirtan than maninder singh raagi: the lost strings, Qi-rattan, tav prasad jatha, etc. Invite these local ppl. Some of them even know how to do kirtan on puratan saaj, some on guitaar, and they have beautiful voices.

Though guru ji taught us all kirtan, ofc the ones who can do it better will be in more demand, and so they can charge more.

I didn't know this about dhan dhan Sant Baba Ishar Singh Ji Maharaj, Rara Sahib ji wale.

None of the kirtanies are Mahapurushs so they are only using the hyms from Gurbani to make money, that is all. They have no love for the gurbani like Mahapurushs do.

    • Guru Nanak Dev Ji WAS  Waheguru as there is no difference between God and his servants. The reason Guru Nanak Dev Ji never said it out loud was because the last time people started down that path it ended with their teachings being distorted and warped. If that doesn't convince you then just read Gurbani  ਜੋਤਿ ਰੂਪਿ ਹਰਿ ਆਪਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਕਹਾਯਉ ॥ ਗੁਰੁ ਪਰਮੇਸਰੁ ਏਕੋ ਜਾਣੁ ॥ <- that literally says that the Guru and the Lord are one. Why do you think Gurbani is full of that same message, again and again and again. Fun fact that was written by Guru Arjun Dev Ji, Do you want a translation of it too? Know that the Guru and the Transcendent Lord are One.  Sukhamani Sahib has an entire Astpadhi dedicated to brahmgyanis (the beings aware of God and enlightened) and Guru Sahib flat out says they're God.  Water has in its 3 forms is given different names but at the end of the day it's always going to be H2O. God has limitless forms, but he exists in Sargun and Nirgun forms as well. Nirgun is the original form but Sargun is also God but God with characteristics and attribution. Humans are unable to comprehend anything unless they see it so God entered the world as Guru Nanak Dev Ji.  You're free to quote any Sant or Mahapurkh and they will say that exact thing. Guru Nanak Dev Ji was God.  This concept is ingrained within Gurmukhi itself, Feel free to quote any text written from the time of the Gurus to about 100 years after and its all there. You're telling other people to take the SGGSJ as a whole but you're unsure about the highlighted verse. Are you sure you're a Sikh? So are the banis by the other authors less important? Guru Arjun Dev Ji complied the Adi Bir and he included it all within it. Including the verses calling the Gurus God. He put it in there as it's the truth. Will you now say that you suddenly knew better than him? the stale argument that because Guru Sahib never said it outright so it's not true is truly grasping for straws. Bhai Gurdas Ji flat out calls Guru Nanak Dev Ji God, so is he wrong? the "random person's book" you refused to read is a noted brahmgyani, Gurbani as a whole says Guru=God.  Ask yourself this, Guru Nanak Dev Ji was the most humble being that ever walked the Earth. He wouldn't utter a statement such as that, no humble person would.     Makes me think as I was in the same boat as this user about 2ish years ago. Thank god I snapped out of it.
    • I just posted explicit lines and you keep rambling that I can't post any, do you not believe every line from Gurbani is the same? Are you autistic or something? "ਵਾਹੁ ਵਾਹੁ ਬਾਣੀ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਹੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਜੇਵਡੁ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥ 
      वाहु वाहु बाणी निरंकार है तिसु जेवडु अवरु न कोइ ॥ 
      vāhu vāhu baṇī nirankār hai ṯis jevad avar na ko▫e. 
      Waaho! Waaho! is the Bani, the Word, of the Formless Lord. There is no other as great as He is. " (Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang 515), this was written by Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Amar Das Ji and even still if you are going to play dumb, this is my last response to you to on this site.
    • Correct interruption and context is the key. Anyone can quote lines of gurbani to fit in with their narrative or agenda but taking the whole SGGS ji in context and verses of gurbani in correct understanding will make you realise what is being said. Guru's true role in liberating people is teaching them about God and how to get to God ie  their role is being a spiritual teacher and you being the student (sikh) is to learn how to get there. Guru is not God nor did any of them claim they was God. Lets stop going around in circles and agree that this is fact because I know you wouldn't be able to produce a verse anywhere that states that a Guru in gurbani says he is God.
    • I don't understand I thought you said they were on Instagram?... 
    • I noticed there's alot of racist violent blacks around in the UK that been targeting innocent asian citizens for decades now.  Alot of the  have this chip on their shoulder thinking the world owes them a living or a racist mentality thinking asians are weak, easy to bully and will take and tolerant any disrespect shown to them without any physical readdress.
