Should we use Graffiti to spread Awareness ?

Recommended Posts

You know..people piss on those walls? Do you really want any symbols of our Faith to be on there? Like Gurbani?

Graffiti is defacing others property and effectively vandalism.

What if everyone did this? Would you like a mural of Muhammed spray painted on the side of your house?

There's no gurbani on there :/

Love it. I'm all for art as long as people don't start worshipping it or giving it undue significance.

Who's the man with the cresent moon and star behind his head? Mohammed? Aren't pictorial representations of their prophet supposed to be haram?

Just leave 4-5 foot space from ground n then paint.

No symbols & Gurbani.

Plenty of art promoting Sikh culture n history is available online & museums.

That should inspire graffiti artists to create their own work.

I think Sikh organisations should commission them to paint.

They could organise a competition, give artists a Theme to create.

Who knows & cares as long as it's not offensive.

It matters because he's been painted sitting next to Guru Sahib. Why not research something before posting it, if that's not too much hard work for you. "Who knows & cares..." Stupid response.

Ang 479 Line 7 Raag Asa: Bhagat Kabir

ਜੇ ਏਹ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਸਾਚੀ ਹੈ ਤਉ ਗੜ੍ਹਣਹਾਰੇ ਖਾਉ ॥੩॥

Jae Eaeh Moorath Saachee Hai Tho Garrhanehaarae Khaao ||3||

जे एह मूरति साची है तउ गड़्हणहारे खाउ ॥३॥

If this stone god was true, it would devour the sculptor for this! ||3||

Likewise if the depiction of Guru ji was real & intent disrespectful then it would devour the painter for this !

No! We should not support this. Even though Guru Sahib has no picture this guy is supporting a form of Manmat that Sikhi is equal to false religions like Islam.

Fair enough, no depiction of Mahapurakhs but what is your opinion about other links ?

problem is the medium Graffiti is temporary and often overwritten/drawn , It makes more sense to have dynamic sewa  in locales to get the buzz about sikhi going instead , that way Guru ji is appreciated firstly for creating us .

    • 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 ॥
    • it's my fault, i should have phrased things a bit better. Basically based on the data he gathered same sex couples are more likely to settle into a routine and are less likely to do things out of said routine (such as cheating, which according to the data he gathered was surprisingly low compared to straight couples). By similar attributes I mean people like them in terms of personality and taste. In straight couples you can usually note a sort of polarity in the way they behave and their personalities.  Again this is based on one study, nothing official or on a large scale really.
