I wonder how many Punjabi and of course Hindu (why do they get a say?) bigots have posted negative comments about black not being able to become Singhs . 

I'm so happy for them ...

I noticed alot of haters which include punjabi Christians. black Christians, south asian muslims and off course punjabi hindu's really hate it when blacks or whites convert to sikhi. Alot of these scumbags always leave negative comments on these kinda videos out of pure jealously and hatred for non-punjabis/non-indians embracing Sikhi.

But for us in Sikhi its great to see different people from different races and walks of lifes hearing the Guru's message and giving their life to sikhi and reconnecting their soul to Waheguru.

Another Black hipster adopting Sikhi because he has no culture of his own? It seems to be a recent trend with Kaleh and Goreh in the US. A lot of outsiders are jumping on it as if it is in fashion. My question is why?

Many seem to say the same thing i.e. 'I heard Prayer/Kirtan and started crying' or 'I could not bear to turn away from my Guru, heart aches, cries etc...'. OK. Well, how can you do that when you do not have a Sikh background and do not understand the meaning of each shabad? They are not translated to English in Gurdware and it can up to a lifetime for the purest and devout of Sikhs to comprehend such wisdom, unless you happen to be fluent in around a dozen Asian languages. The whole thing looks to be somewhat scripted to me.

I understand they are searching for something, inner-peace, and that is fair enough as everyone is on a 'journey' but why talk in cliches? Who are you trying to impress? Are you being paid?

Basics of Sikhi, are you trying to convert outsiders through 'camps'? Leave that to the Muslims and Christians. A lot of parchaaraks today seem to be treating Sikhi as salesmanship. Have they forgot the concept of Parchaar? Punjabis do not need to appease the Goreh/West by forcing Sikhi on others. If they want to know, they can use the internet, libraries etc. Travel and living costs from donations to fund such trips could be used for important causes. Do not put religion before humanity. I would be interested to know the ratio of such balances within Sikh educational charities.

To finish on the OP, what I also do not understand and what really annoys me is why outsiders use the names of the Gurus i.e. 'Tegh' or the Chaar Sahibzaade etc. It displays pretentiousness and ego as well as a clear lack of respect and understanding of their legacy.

The name of a person can you tell you a lot about them. In the case with these individuals, they just think it is 'cool'. Who are these nobodies compared to our Gurus and great Gursikhs?

I am not trying to attack anyone. I am just sad about the state of Sikhi today.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru ji Ki Fateh.

err who are you to decide who is worthy of sikhi ?  Parchaar is what all Guru Sahiban did and encouraged their sikhs to do especially the bibian , the fact that someone has done the hard work of inspiring our youth and those who have a language barrier and joint knowledge barrier should be encouraged and admired . The primary audience was our own who had been failed by their families so what if others who have been left cold by the world seek Guru ji's words of solace and find knowledge there ? Are you going to stand and tell them no ?

People who are donating are doing through their own choice , you don't have to give if you don't want these are the same people who donate to SAS and Khalsa Aid and Ecosikhs and plenty of other groups .

Punjabis have been using Ajit SIngh , Fateh Singh, Bahadur Singh etc forever... there is no paabandi  besides he renamed after taking gurvaak and presented the name for jaikaara of approval by sangat. What would you prefer that  people stay with Christian names when their allegiance is with Guru?

Sikhi is on the rise , did you believe that all the sikhs would be just punjabis because the panj piarey were not just punjabi , early sikhs were afghans, assamese, sindhi, gujrati, Sri Lankan all sorts and their skin would have been just as diverse as now . Don't be scared of change 

Those who are being brought to sikhi is through Waheguru ji's hukham ...accept it

Yes, I find the sharma's the most vilest anti-sikh group of brahmin hindu punjabi's you can get though some sharma are Sikh who just happened to have the surname sharma and belong to brahmin sikh community. Verma are usually 50/50 one groups are pro-sikh and other half are into hp cults. Masih are punjabi christians these group are the sly ones who try to brainwash non-christians into their abrahmic cult using the promise of free medicine and cash loans aided by western rich governments and church funds.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru ji Ki Fateh.

It doesnt matter how they come into sikhi or embrace it. What matters is that people are and we should welcome them in with open arms as brothers and sisters. If we close ourselves like some hp cult or castist cult then sikhi wont spread and we will be reduced in numbers as people marry out because of brainwashing by the atheist west rich elites.

Basics of Sikhi are doing amazing job and they are making islamic and christian missionaries mad, which is the best bit. We should be targetting hindu punjabis too because their cults are dangerous to Sikh population of punjab and india. The reason why hindu punjabis have been left alone by Sikh missionaries is because of SGPC which has been controlled by jattwad castists probably in the pay of RSS they are the new brahmins elitists who secretly infiltrated our institutions so that we couldnt spread Sikhi to dalits or others and as a result we lost our chance of Sikhistan/Khalistan back in 1940s.

You maybe  HP in disguise of a Sikh we dont know but either way only the enemy of Waheguru's Sikhi doesnt want it to spread to non-sikhs. So any tactic that can be used to convert non-sikhs especially breeding age women to Sikhi the better because there is an ideological war going on out there the muslims know this and breed like rats and convert women because divorcing and getting another woman to breed with to increase muslim population. Most Sikhs are lost  in a state of m0ronic denial at the moment to ground realities of how population is important as it equals political power = better rights and treatment for Sikhs.

I read somewhere on another forum once that Guru Nanak dev ji once said if you live and spread the goodness of sikhi you will be saved in the after life with the lords grace. Also after you die Waheguru will ask you what did you do while on earth to further my religion, when you were given Sikhi did you help others get into the religion or did you selfishly keep to yourself? What will you say? Death can happen any time my friend but if you haven't helped spread the religion and convert non-believers into Sikh believers then you will probably be judged harshly. Waheguru didnt manifest Sikhi on earth so that it can die out or only a small select cult of people can practice it, he wants it to spread. And spread it shall if we all work at it.

Irrelevant of whether you agree or disagree it's always worth listening to an "outsiders" experience of Sikhi and what draw's them to it and also, what brings people back into Sikhi.

Note to Mods: delete this racist nonsense. We got a million problems and we don't want racism to influence the lost people within our Panth. To be honest when this guy in the video mentioned that nobody considering him a Sikh, I honestly noticed the dumalla before his skin color, (a turban is more visible than the skin color if you ask me).

aint no doubt Waheguru reached in and pulled them out .... What to take out of this :

1. need to get rid of the illiterate bigots in gurdwarey by making it normal for non-punjabi speaking people to have support and friendly faces to deal with by encouraging the youth to watch out for them and engage .

2. Each gurdwara across the planet needs a strategy and resources to support newcomers

3. we need support for domestic violence sufferers and posters for helplines etc in the loos and foyers of gurdwarey in multiple languages.

4. in-house counselling if possible 

5. Gursikhs manning sikhi drop-ins at the gurdwara so people can get their questions answered in a non-judgemental way.

You sound like a <banned word filter activated>.I hope you dont make anymore posts here this site already has enough idiots. I also gotta question for the member Preeet and that is why are u on this forum pretending to be a sikh its painfully obvious to everyone here that your a hindu why dont you just admit it? Its alright you dont have to be a sikh to post on this forum and you dont have to hide your religion instead you should be proud of it but this pretending to be a sikh stuff is really childish everyone can see right through you. If you u want to convert to sikhi than that is fine too but please leave all your old baggage behind with you because it is really stupid and annoying

Not everyone because not everything is Hukam. If Wahehguru is without fear and hate then why there is so war and poverty in the world? Is the answer not misused free will of man and woman?

I know my opinion and outlook will be lost on some of you but I prefer to call it as I see it and I do not like PC. I have seen these converts that masquerade as 'Sikhs' as if it is the latest craze but I am wise to their lies and I can see right trough them. These idiots do not fool me. Sikhi is not a game. Don't believe me? Google '3HO fake Sikh white cult'.

By the way, I accept only what is written in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji, not what a nobody tells me over the internet.

Now I am maybe a Hindu in the eyes of people like you and others on this forum because you all do not agree with what I said? How do I know all of you are are Sikhs. You could all be Hindus.

I have seen and heard people like you who love to accuse someone of it when a different skin colour is present before making yourself look good by saying you noticed the colour of his turban first. As if I am going to fall for that bakvaas. Do you have your own mind or do you just follow the crowd?

Are these people only idiots because their opinion is different from your opinion? Ask yourself who is the real idiots here.

I am entitled to post here just as much as you and I will continue to do so, unfortunately for you and your forum buddies, because I am on the path of Sikhi and I care about the problems against it.

I don't endorse racism, but if you want to find my biggest chance of racism I recommend this thread: 

I don't like black people, or white people, or Hispanics, or Orientals, or Subcontinentals. I can be referenced from a previous thread that I don't like labels. Honestly I wasn't lying when I noticed the dumalla before his skin color; if he had an accent he could claim he's some dark-skinned Subcontinental for all I care.

Yeah, I totally agree with you. I mean everything isn't Hukam at all...oh wait...

Why do you keep using another users (?) real name? for someone that's harping on about being so wise you seem to think internet safety is a really funny thing.

oh and another thing since you seem to be oh so wise about Sikhism.

"outsiders" lmao, So please tell me how your entire family all came from Sikhs. How right down to the first cells they were always Sikh, fun fact for you the use of these names was never exclusively for the Sahibzadhe. At one time in your family's life you were outsiders, its ironic the person you're spewing so much hatred for probably felt love and respect for Gurbani you have yet to experience. Want to know an even funnier story, people who cried and were touched by Gurbani include Bhai Lehna Ji and Bhai Amardas Ji. Where did they end up? oh yes on the Gurgaddi. Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh Ji also felt touched by Gurbani and this was all on the first meeting/hearing of Gurbani. None of them had the "knowledge" you keep harping on about and all of them ended up being Brahmgyanis and in the case of Bhai Lehna Ji and Bhai Amardas Ji, became Satguru Nanak. So please tell me more about how its impossible to be touched by all this Gurbani. All you've done so far is shown you don't have the same knowledge you want others to have and haven't made the smallest attempt to go and learn about it.

Japji sahib not your thing huh? the reason why wars,people starve, predjudice,  happen is Human egoes drunk on maya and let loose with the 5 chor running the show . I don't think even free will is a factor any more it is purely animalistic. See what Guru ji is saving you from ...

I think struggling to be accepted as a sikh for over 8 years eliminates that argument as despite blatant to the face racism and slurs they both perservered . They have zero to do with 3HO so that's not even a factor here.

this couple I had heard about in a gupt form in 2 other katha vichar videos by two seperate Parchaariks who witnessed/took  the gurvaak  at the camp that inspired them to come home to sikhi . The fact escapes you that it was a HUKHAM directly by Guru ji for them to become full sikhs (I suspect you didn't watch the full video)

Are these people only idiots because their opinion is different from your opinion? Ask yourself who is the real idiots here.

I am entitled to post here just as much as you and I will continue to do so, unfortunately for you and your forum buddies, because I am on the path of Sikhi and I care about the problems against it.

you ARE entitled to write what you feel but you have no right to criticise Sikh bandhap without cause just because of you inadequate embodiment of gurbani principles of manas ka ek jaat.

I don't endorse racism, but if you want to find my biggest chance of racism I recommend this thread: 

I don't like black people, or white people, or Hispanics, or Orientals, or Subcontinentals. I can be referenced from a previous thread that I don't like labels. Honestly I wasn't lying when I noticed the dumalla before his skin color; if he had an accent he could claim he's some dark-skinned Subcontinental for all I care.

Fair enough but you have now confused me.

You say my post is racist and that you don't endorse racism, yet you call white people 'crackers' and then say you don't like blacks, whites, Hispanics, Orientals or subcontinentals. That makes you a hypocrite.

However, I agree with what you and some others said in the quoted thread. I think of white people i.e. Anglos, as the devil. Once they see something they like, they feel it belongs to them and they must have it. The fact is they are shameless thieves. They have even began to delude themselves that they created it. One example is British Museums possessing many Sikh artifacts as well as the Koh-i-noor diamond. Another is Americans trying to copyright Yoga. Can you believe that?

Theft aside, I hold them responsible for much of the evil in the world today. They say: "Where the white man goes, evil follows". I believe it to be true.

3HO are nothing more than a farcical cult who have been brainwashed by a corrupt yogi and distorted Sikhi to an extent that is not Sikhi at all. These jokers masquerade as Sikhs and pretend to act holy and pure. In reality, they dance on Gurbani and to Bhangra, practice Hindu rituals and conduct same-sex marriages. They even display images of the Gurus with Christianity. As I'm sure you and many others on this forum know, that is just the tip of the iceberg. They are weird and beyond help. 3HO are not Sikh.

Yeah, I totally agree with you. I mean everything isn't Hukam at all...oh wait...

ਹੁਕਮੈ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਸਭੁ ਕੋ ਬਾਹਰਿ ਹੁਕਮ ਨ ਕੋਇ ॥

 

Why do you keep using another users (?) real name? for someone that's harping on about being so wise you seem to think internet safety is a really funny thing.

oh and another thing since you seem to be oh so wise about Sikhism. 

 

"outsiders" lmao, So please tell me how your entire family all came from Sikhs. How right down to the first cells they were always Sikh, fun fact for you the use of these names was never exclusively for the Sahibzadhe. At one time in your family's life you were outsiders, its ironic the person you're spewing so much hatred for probably felt love and respect for Gurbani you have yet to experience. Want to know an even funnier story, people who cried and were touched by Gurbani include Bhai Lehna Ji and Bhai Amardas Ji. Where did they end up? oh yes on the Gurgaddi. Bhai Sahib Bhai Randhir Singh Ji also felt touched by Gurbani and this was all on the first meeting/hearing of Gurbani. None of them had the "knowledge" you keep harping on about and all of them ended up being Brahmgyanis and in the case of Bhai Lehna Ji and Bhai Amardas Ji, became Satguru Nanak. So please tell me more about how its impossible to be touched by all this Gurbani. All you've done so far is shown you don't have the same knowledge you want others to have and haven't made the smallest attempt to go and learn about it.

I am honest enough to admit I have not read much of Gurbani and there is a lot more I must learn and understand but you seem to know more about it so rather than dump a shabad of the Guru in your post just to prove your point, why not provide me with a translation of it? Tell me what each word means and explain it, without referencing the Sri Guru Granth Sahib online? You posted neither a translation nor discussion of it so I assume you already know it and can do this with ease.

My point about names was that outsiders... sorry my PC friend, I mean 'non-Punjabi's should respect and understand the meaning of them. What would be your reaction if you met a non-Punjabi Sikh one day and asked their name and they said 'Gobind Singh', 'Bibi Bhani' or 'Guru Nanak Singh'? You may laugh at this but you should understand that is being misused for personal greed and benefit with no understanding it. How many people take Amrit yet don't change their bad habits? I think it is only a matter of time. Would you find it funny and say 'lmao'? After all, we do live in Kaljug, which is, also, referenced in numerous shabads. Could you post, translate and discuss them too, without external reference?

Finally, what on earth are you talking about when you say I "keep using the real name of another person"? Where have I done that? Who else is called "GuestSingh" here? I was not aware that was a real name but where have I kept using it? This is my first profile on this forum.

Japji sahib not your thing huh? the reason why wars,people starve, predjudice,  happen is Human egoes drunk on maya and let loose with the 5 chor running the show . I don't think even free will is a factor any more it is purely animalistic. See what Guru ji is saving you from ...

this couple I had heard about in a gupt form in 2 other katha vichar videos by two seperate Parchaariks who witnessed/took  the gurvaak  at the camp that inspired them to come home to sikhi . The fact escapes you that it was a HUKHAM directly by Guru ji for them to become full sikhs (I suspect you didn't watch the full video) 

 

I didn't watch the full video and I don't intend to do so either because I do not care about their story, in the same way the wife does not seem to care about her heritage and forgetting where she comes from. I wonder if she would still have married him if neither practiced Sikhi? I will never know.

Is free will not just a misused attachment of the 5 chor? By misuse I mean, channeling kaam into pyaar for others, krodh into bir rass, lobh to langar, moh to love for Waheguru and Ego to Seva. After all, no person can have both them and a connection to Waheguru.

I know the 5 thieves are different and the opposite of Sikhi principles but a comparison shows me some similarity.

because you specifically differentiated on his colouring and seperate cultural roots

and because in Gurbani's court you are guilty of discriminating on irrelevant basis

Yes the four castes refer to the four classes of Hindu society: Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and Shudras, not colour. I wonder how many Sikhs, during the time of the Gurus, would have seen whites, blacks, Orientals, Hispanics, Native Americans, Aboriginals etc? I know Guru Gobind Singh ji was treated by a European for a wound during his attempted assassination but it makes you think. People mistakenly use colour as context.

My OP was actually about people misusing Sikhi today. If you had bothered to read my second post then you would know that I feel the same about whites and Punjabis.

To make it clear to you and others, I don't mind non-Punjabis practicing Sikhi so as long as they do so with sincerity. I wouldn't be bothered if I saw an African or Asian practicing it if they were searching for Waheguru and finding peace. I am just wary of Westerners (3HO, British, Americans, Europeans, commercialised jathe etc.) whose minds are corrupt and portray a fake image of looking and acting 'holy' or trying to be 'different' or 'mysterious' or treating Sikhi as something 'cool/funky'. That is what annoys me.

Corruption and evil are everywhere but I believe there are more people outside the West who are more pure, like those who have nothing, live in poverty/war/dictatorships yet practice the faith. You cannot trust anyone but I have more time for those people.

Just saw the first half of the vid (Tegh Singh's section). I thought it was quite inspiring myself. It was refreshing to see an American not blindly following some twisted notion of patriotism and actually questioning the morality of the wars Bush and Blair started. 

 

It was also very interesting to see mention of the psychological effects of finding out you had been lied to about your mission as a soldier.

What about the Kurds, you can compare their genocide to Sikhs randomingly getting picked-up from the streets and getting shot at during what the Indians call the militancy. If someone has any Daya they wouldn't once sympathize with Saddam like you seem to be doing. Do you believe Saddam Hussein was right for killing innocent people, (non-revolutionary civilians)? The only reason isis was allowed to be created was because we let Muslims alone, when you let Muslims do what they want, even if it starts out liberal they become extremists. Look at the history of Iran, when they knew right from wrong they were allies with America: once the West let Iran free, they became an Islamic Theocracy, (first in the world for Shias), now Turkey is going in the same direction, the West is giving them freedom, and they are becoming Radical Muslims. It's the same fault Ranjit Singh did by not allowing Muslims to find some way to Vaheguru, and not saving them by teaching them Gurmat and because of his SJW behavior when it came for Punjab's destruction in 1947: Muslims were the majority and Hindus were the largest minority. (Also let's not forget these Muslims also caused the Crusades, conquered the birth place of Jesus, caused forced conversions throughout the world and killed many Sikhs in between all of that).

Bro , you need to reattach to Guru ji because something got lost in translation... Guru ji says ALL come from the ONE , the ONE creates the HUKHAM and creation bends to it . These people you are so scatching on actually went through the fire to reach Guru ji's charan  , she went through physical and sexual abuse thus left home instead of taking the coward's way out .

 Even though she went through it from SIKHs she never lost her connection with her Guru in her heart. It was 'sikhs' who destroyed her happiness, innocence and security and they did not try to support her in all those years before she met her husband. So I can understand her position , and she didn't just forget her Guru in worldly love , Guru ji gave her someone who could support through the pain of her past and get her to back to the path , they both had sanjog to become the Guru 's again . 

your analysis is tainted with lack of faith , understanding and truth.

The line I posted is basic Punjabi. If you have trouble understanding that then please seek help with learning Punjabi. The Shabad is also from Japji Sahib, infact its the second pauri of Gurbani. So let me get this straight, you've come on here. Attacked just the newly converted Sikh because of his skin but also other members but you, yourself haven't even bothered reading the first 8 angs of your own Shabad Guru, you can't even understand basic Punjabi. But the bad guy here is someone who's had Gurbani resonate with them? Right sure I guess I'll sit down and break it up for you since its apparent you enjoy talking out of your backside.

PC? lmao. Right, because unlike you I've not exhibited a hatred of people who want to Sikhism, so i guess I must be PC. 

ehm what? lol. You don't even know that Guru is a title and not a name, the only time Guru is used in a name is with the conjunction of other words for example Gursevak (servant of the Guru). Bhani is also a very common name, and get this Gobind (the name) is also common in India. So I guess all those names loss all meaning. I wonder if you know where your name comes from? I'm willing to bet no because you already stated you know little Gurbani, yet you have the hypocrisy to sit there and lecture others over the fact that they don't understand the meaning of it. Unless of course you keep names like Harry Singh or maybe Happy Singh. If you knew your own history you'd know that Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji's name was given to him by Guru Hargobind Ji after he fought in a war. The word "Tegh" means holder of the sword, plenty of Sikhs have shared that name, but of course all of them must have known the meanings and all of them must be masters of 4 languages.

If you bothered listening to his interview video you'd know he spent his time listening to Kirtan, listening to Katha and doing his own research, they'd listen to Sakhis and how the Sakhis inspired him.

So I guess we should all stop taking Amrit? How many Punjabis break Rehit? Why are you applying one standard to them and another to this man? its highly amusing how you know nothing about this guy but you'll hate on him because he's black. If it had been a Punjabi dude, you'd sit there and congratulate him, but because of his skin colour you can't even do that. You claim its out of love for Sikhi but you can't even be arsed to sit there and learn Gurbani, let alone Japji Sahib the most basic of all Bani, the first 8 angs of Guru Granth Sahib Ji. All you've shown is you're an intolerant individual who'll tell others to do something but wont do it himself.

Depends on the region of Gurbani picked. I can translate and discuss Shabads from Guru Sahib providing they don't contain Bhagat Banis as some of them are a bit harder for me to translate but yes I could I like to think as when I do read Gurbani (currently doing Sehaj Path) I can understand the basic linguistics behind it and going by and applying my own knowledge/level and thought provide a discussion on the basis of what was uttered.

I didn't like him insulting our people, (as in Subcontinentals), he seemed a bit racist if you asked me because of him complaining that they didn't completely gravel to him at the Gurdwara? What was he seriously about? But Vaheguru kirpa on him, he seems like a nice guy with a sincere heart, it's good that Guru Sahib granted him grace; hopefully Vaheguru blesses the entire a world with Sikhi. Genuinely I think he's a good guy, (not one of them stereotypical Khalas), but he's got to be quite about the whole discrimination at the Gurdwara thing, other than that he's reasonable.

imo he had every right to complain. Again I don't know the full story, only what he shared but if its exactly accurate then yes they were really rude to him. We need to be welcoming of newcomers even if they are just visiting. I attended a sermon done in a Christian church (observed, didn't recite any hymns or stand etc, nor did I take any pledges, just really listened) and the people there were really friendly and warm. We need to mimic the same thing as its exactly how our Guru's court is and should be.

Some people just don't talk much, (one of those people is me), it's not being rude, but for me I would do my best not to give anyone special treatment during the little bit I do Seva. (Some Sikhs could be shy for all we know.) The best Sikhs from what I see don't seem to talk way too much or get involved too much overtly in politics.

I noticed alot of haters which include punjabi Christians. black Christians, south asian muslims and off course punjabi hindu's really hate it when blacks or whites convert to sikhi. Alot of these scumbags always leave negative comments on these kinda videos out of pure jealously and hatred for non-punjabis/non-indians embracing Sikhi.

Something I've noticed over the years when it comes to non-Sikh reactions to issues that affect us and that we have every right to highlight, is how there's an insidious desire to drown out our voice. It's a very dismissive attitude, and one that suggests we shouldn't speak up for ourselves. It happens quite regularly in the West, and i do wonder how that's come about.

if he watch his full interview its alot more than that. They spoke to his wife just fine but ignored him, i.e reply to anything the wife asked but never to him. If he asked something the people would ignore him, but if his wife asked they'd talk just fine.

    • The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another's, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises. Leo Buscaglia
       
    • Some nice quotes for us and people that change, even the ones that make the other look bad.  "Share your smile with the world. It's a symbol of friendship and peace." Christie Brinkley   "Humility is the true key to success. Successful people lose their way at times. They often embrace and overindulge from the fruits of success. Humility halts this arrogance and self-indulging trap. Humble people share the credit and wealth, remaining focused and hungry to continue the journey of success." Rick Pitino
    • You're very hypocritical to write this, when you yourself turn your back on people, after they tell you their personal details. when they need help, so they divert further from Sikhi.  Forgive people? You must be joking, there's only so much forgiveness one can do. I never ever said nothing bad to you, if anything I always supported you and respected you. But when I needed help in my worst time you turned your back. So no I won't forgive you. When you know somebody is hurting so much, you can't help them. I leave it to Waheguru. 
    • When Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj was writing Charitrokhayaan, sitting on banks of Satluj, the weak-minded Masands went to Mata Gujri ji and complained to Mataji about Satguruji’s new rachna, Charitropakhyaan, saying that Maharaj was going against bachans of Guru Nanak Dev ji and was indulging in Ninda of women. Jagat Mata Gujri ji knew her son very well, so she said to Masands that she’ll go and talk to Guruji on this issue. Next day, Mataji went to the place where Maharaj had camped and Charitropakhyaan were being written. Seeing Mata ji, Maharaj got up and bowed his head to Mataji, asking the reason Mataji had come this far. Mataji smiled, looked and Masands, then turned to Maharaj and said ‘'Laal ji ( Mataji never in her life took Maharaj's name), I Heard you are writing Charittars, I dont think human mind is still capable of hearing the Truth, of being able to see the filth it is filled with in mirror of Guru's Shabad''. Mata ji returned to Anandpur Sahib saying these words, and Guru Gobind Singh ji went into Samadhi for some time. Guru ji has just finished 324th Charittar. Suddenly Maharaj opened his eyes and asked Likhari Singh to be Saavdhaan. Suddenly Maharaj stopped, and asked Likhari Singh to Jump to Charittar 326. Maharaj finished remaining Charittars and after writing 404 Charittar, in the end counted 405 charittars. Likhari Singh, Bhai Darbari asked,’’ Maharaj,We have written just 404 Charittasr, why have you counted 405 Charittars in the End? And where is 325th Charittar?’’ Guru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj smiled and said Sikha, ‘’ When Mataji left, I decided to write charittar of Maha Maaya, Sri Maya Lachmi ji, the creative power of Waheguru which creates, preserves and destroys the universe. But Maharaj Akaal purakh stopped me from doing so, as when the Charittar would have been written, Maha-Maaya would have been overcome and finished. Earth, Moon, Sun, Stars, this Universe would have collapsed and there would have been Parlay (doomsday). No one has been able to imagine or explain the vastness of Maya, but I wished to write this Charittar of Maya, which has taken Human beings away from their real-Self, Sri Waheguru ji. Once the Charittar was finished, Maaya would have been rendered weak and helpless, all pure souls would have gone to Sachkhand and world would have ended.’’ Sikhs said, ‘’ Maharaj, Will this charittar be ever written and When’? ‘’Maharaj Said ‘Yes, when we come next time on this world, after finishing evil from this world, Akaal purakh Waheguru ji will complete ‘Sri Kaal ji ki Ustat’ Himself as I don’t have the power to comprehend limit of Waheguru Akaal’s Ustat, and after Akaal Ustat is completed, I will write this 325th Charittar of Maaya, after which, Maya will merge in Waheguru, there will be Maha-Parlay and whole Universe will be destroyed. We will take both Granths (Aad Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji and Sri Dasam Guru Granth Sahib ji) with us to Sachkhand and parkash them there, and we shall all dwell in peace with our beloved gursikhs and when Hukam comes, take the Baani to next creation.’’ Sikhs asked ‘’Maharaj, Why did you wish to write Charittar of MayaLachmi’’? Maharaj replied, ‘’ Singho, Maaya didn’t wish its game to be revealed, and I was doing it, warning the people of world how it twists human minds to do sin, to walk on path of evil, to go away from Nij-Saroop, Waheguru, to fall in pit of hell, there fore it took Masands to Mataji. But Mataji is beyond the shackles of Maaya, still at the benti of Masands, Mataji had to come. Mataji returned after blessing me, but I was looking at Maaya’s game, how it had entered Our darbar, how the people who were supposed to be Parcharaks of Guru, The Masands, had been corrupted and weakened by Maaya, and if the Maaya had grown so powerful, it was better to finish it, for this reason I wanted to write the charittar. ‘’
