  1. Past hour
  2. VJKK VJKF I completely agree with this. If we don't stop then how will the later generations cope with this nonsense? They are already being ruined by the western world and we don't need to plant this seed of castes into their brains. We can help change the future generations... VJKK VJKF
  3. 'The Boy with a Top knot `

    Watched the video and it's really good... for heavenly sake it's not a film about Sikhism ....i thought it highlighted the modern typical Asian family. And definitely a good film to teach others about Sikh diaspora
  4. Today

    1. Where did I say that we should not be protesting? Where did I say that I say that what happened to him is okay? You have put words into my mouth. 2. You say that "no one expects to be kidnapped in the middle of the day for airing your own opinions on a website in the "largest democracy" in the world". This statement is absurd. Anyone who has any familiarity with the human rights violations in Punjab over the last 40 years would know that such things can happen. What happened to Jaswant Singh Khalra?
  6. #freejagginow

    Do you have a problem with reading comprehension? Where did I suggest I was better than others for being a sardar? I was talking about something completely different. One poster asked why, given his background, Jaggi took a risk in going to India. ANY answer would be speculative, and I speculated that being a mona who doesn't deal with being identified as a Sikh 24/7, maybe he was not as vigilant as he should have been. Nowhere in there did i say anything about me being better than him or him being worse than me. You took what I said and completely twisted it and made it into something else. You call me a nindak, but you are a liar for lying about what I did and did not say.
  7. #freejagginow

    Another poster posed a question: given his background, why would Jaggi take the risk in going to India? ANYONE who attempts to answer such a question is going to be assuming something. Nobody knows. I speculated based upon what I know about him. Any answer ANYONE would have given would have consisted of speculation. Obviously, nobody knows exactly what was going through his mind except him. Stop getting so emotional. We are just having a conversation on this form, and speculation and assumptions are going to form a part of any conversation, especially when such questions are posed.
  8. Westernisation in India is happening at rapid rate. The Bollywood movies are losing their Indian touch. Women prefer western dress. English is creeping in Indian languages. All of this was predicted by Sant Attar Singh Mastuana Wale.
  9. Shaheedi Divas of Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib ji

    ਦੋਹਰਾ ॥ ਠੀਕਰਿ ਫੋਰਿ ਦਿਲੀਸਿ ਸਿਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਕੀਯਾ ਪਯਾਨ ॥ ਤੇਗ ਬਹਾਦਰ ਸੀ ਕ੍ਰਿਆ ਕਰੀ ਨ ਕਿਨਹੂੰ ਆਨ ॥੧੫॥ ਤੇਗ ਬਹਾਦਰ ਕੇ ਚਲਤ ਭਯੋ ਜਗਤ ਕੋ ਸੋਕ ॥ ਹੈ ਹੈ ਹੈ ਸਭ ਜਗ ਭਯੋ ਜੈ ਜੈ ਜੈ ਸੁਰ ਲੋਕ ॥੧੬॥
  10. Yeah ,even homosexuals don't like their typical feminine types, they see it as an embarrassment, lusting over men constantly is now being frowned on too apparently. People like this dude here are disgusting, not for being gay but constantly saying on a sikh forum about who's "sexy or not" . Gay, straight or a god dang koala bear that type of language and lustful thoughts should be kept to a minimum on here atleast.

  12. Some more Home Truths

    Really ? You can just make things like that up as you please and nobody bats an eyelid ? Can you please show us one single example of when I've "defended" Muslim groomers ? Can you please show us one single example of when I've "defended" a "Pakistani genocide of Sikhs" ? Can you ?????? When Canada's Jagmeet Singh stands up for Muslims and says 'we are all Muslim now' in solidarity against hate crimes did you take to the internet and start posting messages about he was a Pakistani Sex grooming supporter ? You see, you need to learn how to differentiate between a man that defends against hate against any minority group and a supporter of any type of extremism (sexual or political). I've spent my whole life standing up against hate and bigotry and I'm not going to stop now simply because the right wing Indian supporters on the internet don't like how it interferes with their plan of using the Sikhs in their agenda against Pakistan. YoYo said: Exactly YoYo. But you do realise you've just repeated in different words exactly what I said in my message in the previous page ? As I stated in that message, a state of mind doesn't just occur overnight but is instead a process of philosophies. Islam used to have a great tradition of philosophers but that all changed once it encountered and then accepted a philosophy that was based on rejecting all other philosophies. This of course made it twice as dangerous because the whole idea of philosophy is to have an open mind and accept that nobody knows anything for certain. I've had this argument personally and online with people that 'teach' Philosophy for a living. As a person that went from being a Cynic to a Stoic I asked them how they could call themselves a 'Philosopher' for monetary gain. I remind them that the whole point of Philosophy was to get away from Sophistry, i.e realise that the people who had mastered the art of talking a good talk didn't necessarily know. It is usually the people that don't talk but think....that actually know. So islam went from the enlightened humanist philosophy of Al-Kindi, to the rationality of thought of Al-Farabi to the transcendant theosophy of Mulla Sadra to the earth shatteringly beautiful philosophy of Avicenna. At the time of our Gurus I would say the average Muslim on the street in Punjab (and indeed everywhere really) didn't know it but were folllowers of the Mutazilism school of philosophy. This was a brand of philosophy that was based on pure rationalism. Nothing was ruled out or dismissed outright. The mind was kept open and so it was accepting of all ideas, and indeed accepted and incorporated a lot of 'Indian' philosophical ideas into it's thinking. But.....I don't want you thinking it was the only train of thought prevalent in Punjab at that time. This was an old philosophy from the 7th Century and so there were newer trains of thought that wanted to discredit the Mutazilism. The question is why and the answer is actually a very simple and basic one : Free Will !!!! In my message on the previous page I talked about how and when Islam accepted a particular philosophy from which there is no return i.e once you accept a philosophy which is harsh, strict, non-accepting and un-forgiving it becomes almost impossible to accept any other philosophies again because this particular brand of philosophy you have accepted makes it clear that philosophy (or thinking.....or the free will to think) is manifestly wrong, thus the whole tradition of thinking freely (philosophy) is gone because the current 'philosophy' that has been accepted and gaining ground makes it clear that any further 'thinking' must stop. Islam reached that point of no return. It went from rational thinking about man's relationship with man and divine nature to set in stone thinking about God's orders for the way man must behave. So yes you're absolutely right....there needs to be what you call a 'reformation'. And I don't think it need be that difficult. And I also think it's something we Sikhs need to develop a deeper understanding of before it's too late. I'm talking of course, about the philosophy of free will. There is no one philosophy of free will of course. As I said earlier true philosophy and true philosophers acknowledge that they know nothing. I read philosophy. I know absolutely nothing. But I want to learn.....that's what makes me a philosopher and that is the essence of a 'Sikh'. The same with the philosophy of free will. Many here will be too strict in their interpretation and argue that it goes against Sikhi because it goes against the values of fatalism and determinism. Thats' where Islam reached the point of no return and is in the state of thinking it is today. It rejected open minded thinking as heresy. We need to be careful not to go down that same road.
  13. Powerful dreams

    There are many pangtis on dreams. Here are some of what Guruji says on dreams: ਮ੍ਰਿਗ ਤ੍ਰਿਸਨਾ ਅਰੁ ਸੁਪਨ ਮਨੋਰਥ ਤਾ ਕੀ ਕਛੁ ਨ ਵਡਾਈ ॥ म्रिग त्रिसना अरु सुपन मनोरथ ता की कछु न वडाई ॥ Marig ṯarisnā ar supan manorath ṯā kī kacẖẖ na vadā▫ī. Optical illusions and dream-objects, to them, no greatness can be attached. ਰਾਮ ਭਜਨ ਬਿਨੁ ਕਾਮਿ ਨ ਆਵਸਿ ਸੰਗਿ ਨ ਕਾਹੂ ਜਾਈ ॥੨॥ राम भजन बिनु कामि न आवसि संगि न काहू जाई ॥२॥ Rām bẖajan bin kām na āvas sang na kāhū jā▫ī. ||2|| Without the Lord's meditation nothing avails the mortal, nor anything goes with him. SGGS ji Ang 615 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Arjan Dev ji ਜਗੁ ਸੁਪਨਾ ਬਾਜੀ ਬਨੀ ਖਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਖੇਲੁ ਖੇਲਾਇ ॥ जगु सुपना बाजी बनी खिन महि खेलु खेलाइ ॥ Jag supnā bājī banī kẖin mėh kẖel kẖelā▫e. This world is like a drama staged in a dream, in a moment this play ends. ਸੰਜੋਗੀ ਮਿਲਿ ਏਕਸੇ ਵਿਜੋਗੀ ਉਠਿ ਜਾਇ ॥ संजोगी मिलि एकसे विजोगी उठि जाइ ॥ Sanjogī mil ekse vijogī uṯẖ jā▫e. Some attain to Master union and others in separation. ਜੋ ਤਿਸੁ ਭਾਣਾ ਸੋ ਥੀਐ ਅਵਰੁ ਨ ਕਰਣਾ ਜਾਇ ॥੩॥ जो तिसु भाणा सो थीऐ अवरु न करणा जाइ ॥३॥ Jo ṯis bẖāṇā so thī▫ai avar na karṇā jā▫e. ||3|| Whatever pleases Him, that comes to pass. Nothing else can be done. SGGS ji Ang 18 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji ਸੋਰਠਿ ਮਹਲਾ ੯ ॥ सोरठि महला ९ ॥ Soraṯẖ mėhlā 9. Sorath 9th Guru. ਰੇ ਨਰ ਇਹ ਸਾਚੀ ਜੀਅ ਧਾਰਿ ॥ रे नर इह साची जीअ धारि ॥ Re nar ih sācẖī jī▫a ḏẖār. O man, hold this for certain in thy mind. ਸਗਲ ਜਗਤੁ ਹੈ ਜੈਸੇ ਸੁਪਨਾ ਬਿਨਸਤ ਲਗਤ ਨ ਬਾਰ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ सगल जगतु है जैसे सुपना बिनसत लगत न बार ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ Sagal jagaṯ hai jaise supnā binsaṯ lagaṯ na bār. ||1|| rahā▫o. As the whole world is like a dream, in its destruction, there shall be no delay. Pause. SGGS ji Ang 633 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Tegh Bahadur ji

    You call yourself a Sardar but on this forum how have you been identified? I will tell you how... As a NINDAK. You may be keshdhari but that doesnt make you better than others.
  15. Powerful dreams

    I always believe that if the dream is good and is Sikhi related then it's darshan. If it's about me falling off a mountain then I don't care about it.
  16. Waheguru ji ki fateh but against whom ??

    there are other newer organised religions but they are offshoots from the older ones e.g.ba'hai
  17. Here's why sikhs should stop marrying hindus altogether !!

    Ajeet Singh your sexual preferences are who you are, I am not disputing that or going to tell you that homosexuality is wrong. I personally have no issues with it but on a Sikhi level based on my knowledge I do not think its right. What annoys me is that you use this forum which is for Sikhi to boast about your preference in men etc. From when I was a monah and looked towards Sikhi and Singhs, it was the likes of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Baba Deep Singh Ji, Sant Jarnail Singh who inspired me to take the Sikhi saroop. If I had looked at Singhs who were homosexual, then I most likely wouldnt be where I am today. Be who you are, but be very careful the damage you can cause to the Quom by showing off about your sexual preferences in a Sikhi atmosphere. Look how many viral videos there are of 'Singhs' doing stupid stuff, lets not make a jaloos of our people and disrespect the blood of our shaheeds. Every Quom has got homosexuals, muslims probably got the most but yet they keep it in house or do not let it tarnish their dharam in any way.
  18. VJKK VJKF That's really interesting veerji. Makes me sort of scared though... I don't want to face the wrath of the Shaheed Singhs. They are too powerful, I am like an ant compared to them. VJKK VJKF
  19. Some more Home Truths

    VJKK VJKF No offence to anyone, but that's a bit weird... Why don't they just stick to their traditional dress? This looks newer. Please forgive me I am not an expert on these sorts of subjects. Bhull Chuk Maaf VJKK VJKF
  20. @Akalifauj you are alway trynna start a fight man. Like the post above just summed it up but read this Bhul chuk maaf
  21. I think u misunderstood what he was trying to say. Whatever ur saying that’s true back in those days gursikhs needed bir ras coz they use to do jungs but what taksaldasingh was saying is nowadays we don’t use bir Ras like we don’t go and have wars but if someone gets bir Ras by doing these baniya and don’t use it thn it’s outcome is what we call anger in negative ways and that’s what we try to avoid. I’ve heard some people who do bir Ras baniya just to balance that they also do sukhmani sahib as it’s for peace of mind.. I hope u understood the point..
  22. Some more Home Truths

    VJKK VJKF No this is jubba
  23. Naam Simran is for everyone

    VJKK VJKF Very true veerji, Naam is not for any one person/group. As Sikhs we should do Naam simran or even just listen to it if you don't have time. Think about it: How did a sant become a sant? Surely he/she must've been a normal person before? The way they became a sant was by their love for Vaheguru. So, for someone to say that Naam is only for a sant. They are wrong. Thanks for making this thread because maybe others will be able to learn and experience Vaheguru for themselves. VJKK VJKF
  24. Some more Home Truths

    Word Wahhabi brings up a lot of things too like Ban on Music/Qawwali , complete adherence to sharia ,enforcement of Burka on women , appliance of sharia law in muslim countries . But my point was Mr Doaba did not specifically talked about it. As far as Jihad is concerned well, it should not come across as a surprise it is considered as sixth pillar of Islam. Wahhabis put more emphasis on this pillar , they give two option to non muslims/govt either convert to Islam or give up your right to rule. And believe me many Muslims like myself have problem with it but it becomes difficult to argue with Wahhabis because they have entire collection of hadith to back up their claim. My personal take on this issue is unless there is complete reformation of Islam along the lines of Christian reformation in Europe , world will continue to suffer and i think it needless to say that vast majority of victims of this jihad are Muslims themselves. 70 thousand Pakistanis have been killed since 9/11 by the same wahhabi/debandi followers.
  25. Powerful dreams

    Sometimes we forget to place the blame of bad dreams on our late night desserts. I noticed a significant improvement when I stopped eating chocolate late evening. Sugar sort of activates our mind to work faster when asleep. So anyone having bad dreams will want to get rid of extra sugary meals first. However I have experienced alot of what that guy talks about. So I am still exploring my dreams. But yes dreams change when you miss your daily path and improve when you increase simran. Our spirit is awake and in danger, why else would we want rakheya dhe shabad. We should pray to God for protection many times a day I believe. The dark areas in your life or rather dark thoughts do reflect back in dreams. The pure you try to keep your thoughts, the better the dreams get. It is only naam that purifies thoughts. I was reading another article which was saying that we can be building houses in our dreams. Whatever we get on earth we have to obtain it spiritually first. Performing path enables us to build a better life. I remember a time when I was able to perform lots of simran and had dreams of houses. Its the same house most of the time. There were dark forces lingering around at the start of the dream. However that same house changes quite a lot. It became cleaner, brighter and full of more beautiful things with added simran and path. One of my colleagues once just walked up to me and said Hey there Ihad a dream of yyou having built a big fenced house with a swimming pool in it. My jaws dropped wide open and I wondered how she knew. Yes, so path is powerful and is our guide and protector when we are asleep. The punj baniya, rehras and Kirtan sohila are there for a very important reason.
  26. #freejagginow

    That has to be the single most un-educated post i've read in a long while, having a dastaar or having cut hair has nothing to do with what's happened, the point of this is that some visited another country and was kidnapped in broad daylight and is being detained without charge while being subjected to various types of torture all because he runs a website highlighting human rights violations, i'm sorry, but if that happened to anyone, turban or not, we should be protesting. How vigilant do you expect the average person to be, no one expects to be kidnapped in the middle of the day for airing you own opinions on a website in the "largest democracy" in the world. The man's being scapegoated, simple as, having a turban or not is irrelevant.
  27. Some more Home Truths

    Just to add quickly, it might in regards to spreading Sikhi, and I mean actively spreading Sikhi and bringing people into the Sikh fold. Something I believe is our duty contrary to the commonly held belief that Sikhs don't 'convert'. But I do not hold this view for the same reason as Abrahamic faiths, nor do I mean simply 'convert' as they do.
