Concept of the word Bhagauti in Ardas

8 posts in this topic

It is disturbing that a Gurdwara in Fresno is modified the Ardas by removing the word Bhagauti. Are they totally unaware of 20th century Sikh history (esp. with respect to Bhagauti), and think that only with the coming of Ragi Darshan Singh did Sikhs understand their religion?

What is heartening, though, is that it was an office-holder in the "Khalis Foundation" that is refuting all this anti-Dasam Granth Sahib nonsense:

Quote

Prabhdev Singh has Engineering and IT degrees and is overseeing several Khalis Foundation projects.  He currently supervises the media and outreach division of Khalis Foundation.  He is currently working for an IT company as a product manager and apart from this, he is also a founder and director of the West Coast Sikhi Camp.

Usually officers of these types of Sikh foundations are the first to latch on to some sort of anti-Sikh theory or another. Also, when someone has a high position in business, they also nurture anti-Sikh thoughts in their heads. Heartening to see that this Sikh has his head screwed on straight.

Being excommunicated doesn't seem to count for much these days, and not many are apparently scared by it. Within their own circles they have absolutely no fear.

It shows some of our people don't really understand wat our guru said.

Bhagauti / Bhagwati is worshipped as goddess among hindus but guru explained real meaning behind hindu gods

Bhagauti means shakti of waheguru. Both the destructive and constructive force of ParBrahm is called Bhagauti. It is also called by names like chandi, durga, kaali, etc. Its an aspect of god only. It is shown as feminine aspect of Brahm (god) 

Shiva means consciousness. Its subtle. 

Its considered male aspect of brahm. 

 

Btw Hindu vidwaan and Sikh vidwaan both agreed on this. Actually shiva and shakti are one only. 

There's only one god but with multiple aspects. 

And here in lies key difference between Hindus and Sikhs. Sikhs worship god as absolute, as one. Hindus worship independent facets of god as mahesh ganesh vishnu durga etc

Nice explanation here http://www.yogamag.net/archives/1991/bmar91/twins.shtml

Don't substitute truth for garbage.  Shiva is the created so is shakti.  Shiva was begging at the Sikh Guru's feet for mukhti. Your link is garbage, calls shiva unmanifested......what a joke.  If you consider yourself a Sikh, why do you go begging at illiterate people doors.  What is wrong with you?  The true Guru is there for you to understand and you don't need to go anywhere else.  These type of Sikhs love getting slapped around by dhoti wearing pakhandis.

That's the main issue though, Guru Sahib already explained that these entities aren't god, or even a small portion of God. God is beyond all of them, they're bound by death and Maya. Just like the rest of us. The issue arises that true Bhagats left all these demigods behind.

    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji But with Sri Ardas Sahib ji we are guided to do what is best. Without that paath, an average person can carry on doing wrong without guidance. Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji From my memory of reading Sri Chaubis Avtaar, Buddha ji was an avatar of him that was here to make people go offtrack because royal people were abusing riddhi siddhis through hinduism. Or of course, if you'd like to know more about it you can read it yourself without assuming things, Singh ji. Go to  buddhist mandirs, they have images of devtas everywhere. Sri Indra, Sri Brahma, Sri Ganesh, Sri Mahadev, Sri Saraswati, Sri Uma Devi, Sri Devi are all known to them. Just look at this video of a jagrata they have in their own culture: Those countries do believe in hinduism, they are actually believing in hindu traditions while being buddhist such as MURTI POOJA which is an hindu custom. They have jattheras for their ANCESTORS just as hindus do. They have versions of ramayan in their languages that they used to read. bhul chuk maaf kijye Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa
      Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh, ji Veer ji, these stories were told orally to me. If someone lives off of donations of sangat, then whatever pains the sangat has is transferred to the person who live's off their work. Even in my Sri Gurdwara Sahib ji, they tell everyone who is rich or poor that 'lohr matavic langar shako' (aka do not always live off of donations). Parchar is something that needs to be done for free, rather than for money. Look at all these people who use sikhi as a way to make money, buying 1st class plane tickets to travel etc. It would save us from people who do Parchar and literally say anything just because they will receive $$$ afterwards. Now people are having paathi sahib jis doing paath at their house for money as well, if the reciter's motive is to achieve money and not actually do paath for free then what energy are they really spreading while doing paath? Energy matters, even when making sri karah prasad we are told to try to keep the most positive energy while preparing it. These are just my views, all are free to believe in what they want, but as per that saakhi I would rather live a simple life and earn little money, rather than making money off of sri guru sahib ji's sikhya which is free for all. Free for all.. Sri Gurbani Sahib ji is not invented by us, why should we sell it in the name of dharma. I think people who do stuff as hobbies have true prem, because they are doing it for the love of it, rather than the ones who have $$$ on their mind. bhull chuk maaf kijye Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh
    • Even Sant Jarnail Singh Bhinderwale said the same thing, the word Hindu does not appear in any Hindu texts, and when they refered to this religion they would call themselves Sidhu, (which means of the Sidhs/Bhagti or Magic, I don't know what Sidh by itself means unless used with another word). As you know Islam invaded India very early on, so those first Muslims called these Sidhus, as Hindus. Why Arabs gave-up this word in their dictionary, I don't know. Arabs are mostly Muslim-In-Name-Only, the groups that are usually more devout are the Non-Middle-Eastern Muslims, (with the exception of Iran, which became religious due to the some false agitations on the last Shah and secular groups).
