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.

look, some "sikhs" don't understand nirguna/sarguna concept of Waheguru Akaal. They are stuck in gora/firanghi understanding of God, which has damaged sikh panth and sikh literature and teaching since colonial times. All this paranoia to heritage and cultural terms used for nirguna and sarguna roop stems from those times.

    • The more you keep repeating the path the shorter it becomes. Try to do just japji sahib 5 times. You will feel the length has decreased and you are able to do it faster too.
    • katha on the meanings of the path helps you understand what the words mean. This allows you to concentrate better.   
    • Predominantly, yeah. england. By the way, the goreh built roads and trains in Bharat ('India') only to easily distribute the goods that they wanted to loot (this word was, also, looted by them when they were looting South Asia) throughout the continent before shipping all of it back to the uk. They did this only for themselves, so it is not a legacy for the people or country but merely a by-product that was left behind. That wealth included: cotton, textiles and metals, which started the industrial revolution in the 1940's/50's tonnes and tonnes of wheat, rice and grains that left millions upon millions of people starving to death through mass famine countless hundreds of trillions of pounds (~ 600), on which the uk economy has been built today historical Sikh artefacts that were 'forced' to be relinquished and are now kept in museums for profit Ironically, the money that Sikhs and other 'Indians' earn today is what, arguably, belonged to their ancestors. You might already know this but before the empire, Panjab was, apparently, one of, if not, the most literate and well-off places in the world. It had thriving industries created from home-grown materials and some of the mughals were investing some of their wealth too e.g. palaces. Now look at the state of it. The hindus and muslims are to blame for this, too, but the goreh started the trail of destruction, in my eyes. People can do their own research and decide for themselves on how they see them but from my experience, they're nice to your face but cunning behind your back. I'm not just talking about the middle-class elite but the common working-class too. You won't always hear or see them say it because it goes against their preferred method. As far as I'm concerned, they're all the same. According to a recent uk survey, 59% of the uk population are 'proud' of the empire and its colonial rule. I think that says it all.
    • I have a question, these Singhs are probably amritdhari so do they manage to get their paath done whilst in jail?
    • the attack happened on 30 September 2012 Mandeep Singh Sandhu and Dilbag Singh were sentenced to 14 years, Harjit Kaur was jailed for 11 years while Barjinder Singh Sangha received a sentence of 10 years and six months. I don't think they are out of jail @S1ngh source: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-25316370
