Vahe guru ji ka kalsa vahe guru ji ka fateh. 

I'm teaching myself gurmukhi slowly. What does the wale in wale satsiakal mean? I know chai wale sell tea but it must be different wale?

Chai? You said gurmuki/punjabi not hindi. Satsiakal? Ive never heard of that. Chai is chaa in punjabi. In punjabi you sai chaa wala, in hindi you say chai wala.

Thank you for the answer. My minor typos must have obscured my intended question. 

So it's wala not wale for a person. 

I was typing on my phone. I was trying to type satsiriakal. I missed an ri in there. Did it really make the word unrecognizable? Did I offend you? Seem kind of quick to find fault with me. 

Let me rephrase my question if I may. 

Why do people say Waaaleee before satsiriakal? 

I know chai means tea. Thats why I translated chai wala as tea seller. Thank you for telling me it's chaa in punjabi.

Never heard people saying that before the greetings of "Sat Sri Akal".

Thank you for improving my understanding of spelling sat sri akal.  The wale I hear is in the intro to this song. I don't hear it used when greeting the sikhs in my community. I just say sat sri akal.

He's saying "Bole So Nihaal Sat Sri Akaal". It's a battle cry. The "bole" part is usually stretched out.

    • Could you now pose the questions I posed to your Christian "friend" and tell us what his answers are? Also a few more: Is it possible for Jehovah to cease existing? If Jesus is God, then why did Jesus call out to God the Father asking why He had forsaken him? Does that mean God can fall into low spirits (dhendi kala)? If so, is He really God? If He's depressed, how can he help us out of our depressions? Or is He really all-powerful? If it's possible for him to not be perfect, is it possible that what Jesus taught can be said to be imperfect? If so, cannot his words in the Bible said to be imperfect? And if Jesus was imperfect, then his disciples become imperfect by extension, correct? And if his disciples were imperfect, then what they wrote in the Bible is imperfect, too, by extension, correct? If Jesus is God, then why was Jesus tempted in the desert when Satan tempted him? Is God tempted by Maya? If so, is Maya more powerful than Jesus (or Jehovah)?
       
    • Thank you.  I don't often eat them myself, but I was curious.  I appreciate the feedback.
    • It must be leaving everything which carries a higher life form In  it - as an egg is the food of a chick. There are some papers or maybe rehet in punjabi which mentions not eating eggs.  Most of my elders did eat though. I think it is recently it got practised more and you can see why. Eggs contain harmful bacteria these days. You might fall behind in your simran by falling ill. Just my speculation. 
    • A poster in another thread mentioned eggs being off limit.  So I tried researching dietary teachings of Sikhi.  I ran straight into a wall of conflicting information. Some eating meat as long as its not kosher or halal, others eating jhatka meat only.  Still nothing on eggs.  I respect everyone's personal choice, but where do the eggs come in?  
    • The videos you posted are highly disturbing.  But you would get a lot further on this forum if instead of your wording above, in which you seem to say all amritdharis as a group are frauds and fakes, you would say: "There are many frauds and fakes who are posing as amritdharis but are actually patit" If you were to phrase it like that, nobody could object to your statement. The reason you are catching flak is because you made a provocative and arguably false statement.
