Could you name 10 Sikhs in the west that did something for Sikhi?

LOL really..! And what gives you the right to determine that.. 

These guys however they came to sikhi is irrelevant.. They have dedicated their lives to learning ie. Being a Sikh what makes you a Sikh and not them? Is this a joke? 

This is no joke. Please research their name if you require evidence or to educate yourself about their distorted ideas and practices of Sikhi. Also, I did not question their journey. What is only in doubt here is their right to this identity. What they have done false, treacherous and disgusting. I am not going to waste any more of my time writing about them or take the thread off-topic.

I think the single/lone parcharaaks e.g. Bhai Sukha Singh, Bhai Amardeep Singh etc. do a good job too.

Bro 

they openly preach a milgoba of philosophies preached to them from Yogi Bhajan  and attribute it to sikhi . Remember That Yogi ji openly declared that Guru Gobind SIngh ji was wrong and mistaken to give sikhi to Punjabis , that white people are more pure .

 

although counts soul body twice ...I did listen to the whole thing .

they go on to teach this :

so Bhai Bachittar SIngh ji who they obliquely refer to  gained his strength not through Gurbani or Guru ji di mehr but yoga poses . at 50:00 he starts explaining a mantra taken from Jaap Sahib he claims Yogi ji taught them , then explains that the gurbani will only take you so far (arrow thrown by hand) but with the MUDRA then it will reach further (arrow with a bow). I don't know about you that sounds like saying Gurbani is incomplete to save people i.e. beadbhi

Chardikala jatha are hazoori rages. Linking them with 3ho has got nothing to do with Sikhism. It's like linking me with the ragamuffin rastas that I used to hang out with.  So what you guys wanna call me a "ganja Sikh" ???

I can't believe how members can just rant the same thing and absolutely have no idea what yoga really is. shame on you!!

most importantly for me, I wouldn't have discovered what Sikhi was about until some 3ho goray caught my attention and opened my eyes. and if any of you guys think that my vision is distorted, then I respectfully challenge you to show me as per gurbani and nothing else. No videos, no hearsay, just the ultimate truth of gurbani.

do you know what the true qualification is to be hazoori raagi?

This is what the bare minimum you need to have to be able to do kirtan sewa at Harmandir sahib and other Gurdwarey. you need to have mastered all 31 raags in Guru ji and have memorised over 100 shabads  as you are not allowed to be reading off pothian and phones . Shudh uccharan is also a major issue for kirtaniyas.

I doubt seriously Anyone in yogi Bhajan's group who visited and performed in 1971 qualified  but the committee stretched the rules because the outfit were supported by Indira  and they were Goray ... Truth is most of them hadn't had amrit until they got to India and didn't know what it entailed or its significance but Yogi sold it to them . 

Ask any kirtaniya how many years it takes to achieve that level of mastery and they'll tell you many many years.

are you serious here??

You are saying that chardikala jatha are some Back door hazoori ragees ..shame on you again,

I am not saying all 3HO are full of bad people but just that on the one hand being raagis and long term sikhs , the members of the jatha should know better than to say such disrespectful things towards Guru ji . I have no problem with their kirtan or pronounciation of bani , rehit but on that issue I have to say No that is not right. 

Those who are just learning i.e. at the start may take away that sikhi  is incomplete by itself from what they said and that is just wrong . Do yoga to strengthen your body or deepen your calm but don't diss Guru ji . Guru ji is app parmeshvar so one should not be so foolish to suggest that Yoga is what makes Gurbani better.

Yoga is union( union with Akal Purakh), Sikh bhagti is described as Raj Yoga because it is the uttam panth the highest path. Sewa and and simran are so powerful there are no words... but Guru ji has told us in Bani that bodily manipulations, austerities and the like will not get us to where we want to go , you have to have kirpa .

I watch the people and their comments  are linked mainly to the mantras i.e. Gurbani. Even my Brasilian BIL came to me and told me I have been learning your prayers in my yoga class can you explain what the translations are because I have a doubt. He had been taught Mool Mantar  , now he is not a very Godly person but he admitted he enjoyed naam japna, and the mool mantar. I say it's good that people are getting exposure to gurbani and then investigating further but respect and not putting Gurbani on a secondary level is important.

No I am saying that one who has performed for Guru ji at Harmandir Sahib has criteria they are supposedly judged on to be named Hazoori .

The early group were not clearly and yet somehow history shows that allowances which amounted to lowering of standards was done for them. 

A Hazoori raagi would have deeper knowledge than those guys so I could understand if they said something silly in unjaan state but a hazoori raagi never. If they want to claim it they have to also Honour Guru ji above everything else , simply.

It seems that you are just convincing yourself with some reasons to hide your own inner weakness and insecurity. >>> to that say,>>Whatever it takes for you to keep your conscience clear!!!

I'm not going to waste my personal "UP" energies from recent morning nitnem, but all I can say is that I have learned to expose and confront my own weaknesses over the last few years. I'm getting better and better every day. Today I'm a better Sikh than yesterday and tomorrow morning, when I get up for nitnem, I want to be better than today. >>> So, I honestly have no desire to argue with your narrow minded arguments and your misinformed slating of yoga.

I'm lucky to have one or two high avastha gurmukh friends that have really helped straighten my dogtail(kuthay dee pooch) out.  One of them told me that I've got to make repeated efforts to improve, day by day and every day. Gurbani says that a dogtail can never be straightened which means you have to keep repeating and repeating the process every day. You straighten it out, but then it bends back again.   He said the key to working on my kuthay dee pooch is to first, stop CHASING the damned tail.   So,>>you know when you keep singing the same argument, time and time again about how bad flanna jatha is and how much beadbi this jatha does and that..>>>you gotta  stop all that>> cuz you are just singing the same song over again and again, like chasing the tail again and again. INSTEAD, you've gotta put energy into straightening the tail, because a short while later the damned thing bends back.

I hope you see what I'm saying. I don't mean no disrespect phenji but it's just that your understanding is misinformed and narrow minded because yoga is huge topic at all levels of perception.  Saying that, gurbani makes it clear that it's all a game of the mind, and whatever it takes for you to grab and control the mind to put it towards guru, then you should do it.   If Bhagat dhana could sit with a stone as centre, to put his mind on akaal purakh, then why can't us moorakhs put it on waheguru, using breath as centre???  >>well, we can. This is saas giraas and saas saas simran which are actually taken from Patanjali yoga and many references by Bhagat Kabir ji and Namdev are referencing raj/patanjali yoga. To understand that, i first had to understand why we had techniques like saas giraas and saas saas. This is how my real journey started and then the treasures that hide behind the veils, began to reveal themselves..  slowly and slowly, holleee hollee, one by one, the revelations came and lead me to take amrit. Therefore, I can never slate the gurmukh friends that helped guide me and all the varieties of Sikhs that inspired me. and Yes, a lot of chardikala jathas kirtan and many 3ho meditation videos were inspiring and are ingredients in the outcome of gurus blessing for me>>> which is probably why I get a little offended when people start slating any jatha as a whole.

Again, no offence and I'm not singling you out cuz you are quite intelligent and have very respectable views imo. I have learned and taken a lot of giaan from some of your posts. Us learning Sikhs have to continue this process of learning, re-learning and correcting ourselves with the help of others until our last breaths at anth-kaal. So lets make some effort for tomorrows amrit vela to keep increasing in power than todays.

look I didn't slate the chardikala jatha as a whole even just gave an example where they should have been a bit deeper thinking about the implications of what they said . In the end we all strive for that true yoga but the path is individual , Gurbani is enough in itself to open and transform one's inner life but I agree that some may need the support to their journey. Saas Giraas is there to imbed naam into our subconcious mind so it becomes constant unthought simran  di taar running through our lives. Bhagat Dhanna's innocent love for 'Thakur' Akal Purakh was rewarded , that means our love should be full flow and innocent /niskaam . You are lucky that you had such blessings of inspiring sangat but the hand that gave is the hand you now hold , stay in chardikala . For me it is hard to hear Guru ji's status being pushed down or eliminated because of his apaar kirpa in my life , through my darkest days.  For me all gursikhs are my family don't care for labels or politics.

Justajatt, believe there will be a spiritual stage in your life where you will understand the complexity of such issues. As you stated that you are new into this, so it will take time for you to learn thru experience. Buckle up as it's a long journey- some come and go as their karma took them off track. Very few stay on the sikhi path. As gurbani says the path to walk on is sharp edge of kirpan which is thinner than human hair.

have patience brother!

@JUSTAJATT My dear friend. I'm glad you've started to take the spiritual side seriously. I can tell  you've climbed up a few notches and the Akath katha gyan is beginning to pour in.

Good man!.... keep it up!

    • russians bro....its the commies.
    • Guest Jagsaw_Singh
      Fateh sangat ji, I want to try something here. It's designed to make us think about ourselves and our thought process and then perhaps at the end of it we might, together, gain a deeper understanding of how and why we, as a nation, are allowing ourselves to go through what we are going through. Below then, I am going to post a list of everything a right wing Indian nationalist has said to me in just one thread. Remember that: Just one thread. If I was to collate all the  other things he has called me over the course of the last year in other threads this process would take way too long. So all the below is from just one thread. While we read it together we each need to ask ourselves how we allowed ourselves to be manipulated enough into not seeing it. From there we can individually, in our own time, perhaps begin to understand the master-servant relationship that exists between the Sikhs and Hindustan....How Hindustan manipulates the Sikh's mind into believing that 'mother India' knows best...and as a 'mother' she couldn't possibly wish him any harm. It's about the power of suggestion and implanting ideas in people's heads so that become conditioned into believing that what the Indian says MUST be good, proper and civilised and any deviation of thought MUST mean extremism. terrorism, backwardness...'bewhkoofness'. Within the text of the messages below I want you to be able to pick out the common themes.....such as the image of a 'kirpan' as an object of backwardness and the 'kachera' as a garment of ridicule, or the consistent year long anal references. In this process each of us has a different role to play, for example the Mods here will need to question why such language has consistently been allowed and the rest of us will need to examine just how easy it has been for the anti-Sikh rights brigade to divide us and cause infighting.  So..........ignoring the thousands of insults directed at me on the other threads over the course of the last year all the following were what I received in just one single thread. Please note, the bits that contain nothing but characters are the ones where the words used by the Indian were so disgusting that they were deleted by the mods in their entirety. And remember, not once did I respond with abuse. each time I worrying questions about his mental state and carried on with my thread. what you need to do is remove your brain, squat down, drop your Kachera, open your anus as wide as possible and then... But I am intrigued, that you must be the only specimen in mankind who sepaks from his anus and defcates from his mouth. Unfortunately that extreta ends up dumped on this forum And I love the last lindee that you fartrd out of your mouth seems like you’re talking out of your jagsaw  (ANUS) again This c*ck is a fantasist just looking for any excuse to whip his kirpan out and start waving it around for no reason ie horse sh1t. Love the back tracking though. See if you can get the lindee back into your fantasist bootha..... (in this one the swear words were so extreme the Mods  deleted 5 of them in one paragraph: DELETED* Officially huh? Try going to Stonebridge Park, parts of Islington or parts of Hackney or even Camberwell. Whilst Southall is no Mayfair, I will give you that, your*DELETED*. As usual, if you are so correct, quote your damn source you mother *DELETED*...... *DELETED* And whilst you say no sikh went to assist, I was there volunteering on Saturday and Sunday, and there were other sikhs too, What they didnt do was start waving their kirpans around in the air yelling about 1984, which is what I guess you were looking for. *DELETED* Then come to central london tell me where you will be and you can kiss my <banned word filter activated>,. That you use specific words at random to try and give credibility or a a learned slant to your diahorrea. Words such as "intellectual level" in this post and in previous posts such as "officially", "proven" and then whip totally made up facts and statistics out of your anus to prove a point thats not there. Thanks for confirming your ignorance. Even your diahorrea is inconsistent. I think it may be your typical dysentery..... You <banned word filter activated>. (on this one he abused Basics of Sikhi for highlighting the killing of Sikhs during a live BBC TV programme)  Its like the <banned word filter activated>..... the <banned word filter activated> who went live on TV and started shouting during a programme on the BBC. Do you think that did anything for opinion of sikhs in the wider world. Any you ? You c*ck consider that an inferiority complex Its not, its damging the position of the Kaum in the wider world, for which behvooks like you are 100% responsible.   (he said the following after I challenged him for calling our sister JKVLondon the most disgusting of abuse)  And yes I also call out JKV when she comes out with BS, and shall continue to do so. And dont apologise for it whatsoever.   marching up in the middle of it dropping his kachera and releasing the diahorrea from his Jagsaw all over the floor and then thinking he added to the debate         More bukwaas. Its never ending. Filter 100 of my posts eh? bollocks. Aside from which how the hell would you know, given that you are neither a mod, admin or vaguely respected member of this board with any influence whatsoever?     so do us all a favour and kkep the BS in your rectum Well which is it you <banned word filter activated&gt Sort of like the internet equivalent of having a debate in person, and some tw*t just And you have to type one handed, whilst using the other hand to wave your kirpan around your head to fight off the mughals invaders hallucinations Its winkers like you that need to be eradicated from the sikh kaum Jagsaw you c0ck any proof of the above horse sh1t statement? I mean proof, not your bukwaas opinions encountering here is the resident behvkoof of this forum, Jagsaw Singh. Makes tutee up to attempt to make his point seem more learned. And you have asked for sources?? lol dream on Careful don't criticise Jagsaw's beloved Pakistan or Muslim groomers who rape children jagsaw khota is the epitome of nonsense and verbal bukwas DELETED* I have taken to use the word "jagsaw" as a proxy for ‘ANUS’. (in this one he decided to go for the 3 forum members that are most vocal for Sikh Independence from India in one sentence, alluding to the fact that Sikhs that desire self-determination are the enemies Sikhi) there are many more behvkoofs on this forum who are armchair google hypocritical extremists happy to slander without evidence (sound familiar jkv?) and some others who are just goddamn dumb and idiotic (akalifauj-for example, suggest that jagsaw and these members form their own caste of the behvkoofs and cease from damaging Sikhi any further. Jagsaw my old friend, IMODIUM time again ! I have plenty to say Jagsaw, I only abuse where the poster justifies that type of response. I congratulate you that the 100% stupidity of your posts warrants a lifetime behvkoofi, Lets get something straight behvkoofa. . What I AM, is anti behvkoof, anti janwar, anti extremist, anti baseless BS, anti moronic google warrior But thats you all over, baseless bollocks total made up b0llox recognised your nonsense as structurally identical to horse lidh.....
