REALIZATION : THE TRUE PATH OF SIKHI

THE MEANING OF NAAM

Has any reader experienced being told in a gurdwara ‘Kintu Prantu Na Karo’ (DO NOT QUESTION) just say ‘Haanji, Sat Bachan, Sat Bachan’ (YES, YES JI)?

But wait a minute, didn’t Baba Nanak write his Q & A discourse (Sidh Ghost) after his journey to search the path of truthfulness by QUESTIONING? So in fact, Gurbani encourages CRITICAL THINKING. By asking, a Sikh LEARNS faster.

THE “AANT KAAL” MYTH DEMOLISHED VIA GURBANEE OF SGGS – DR KARMINDER SINGH

The Annt Kaal concept, which is not as per Gurmat or Gurbanee is a very popular MYTH which has its roots in the Earlier established religious systems. This “concept” was totally demolished and utterly rubbished by the SGGS, but sad to say many still attempt to explain this “myth” and justify it as part of Gurmat, fall back on the Vedas, Purans etc .

In this video Dr Karminder Singh bases his explanations totally on GURBANEE of SGGS and concludes that this Annt Kaal concept is totally out of sync with Gurmat and Gurbanee.

Big Question ? HOLY SANT, HOLIER CHELAS AND BLIND SHARDALOOS

HOLY SANT, HOLIER CHELAS AND BLIND SHARDALOOS

 

Disgraced pseudo “Godman” cum convicted serial and statutory rapist Ram Rahim Gurmeet Singh has been in the news lately – obviously for all the wrong reasons.

The ultimate shame that Singh is his surname, that Sikhs formed a large portion of his hundred thousand odd followers, and that he has been the subject of three Akaal Takhat dictates merits discussion on this forum: not on the jailed and disgraced sham of a culprit per se – but on the larger phenomenon of using “Godman-ship” to rob and loot innocent followers.

In Punjab alone there are some 20,000 deras – owned and run by people who claim to be mahapursh (godly elevated beings) and Sants (Saintly beings). Compare this figure to about 13,000 villages.

The Punjabi idiom Ett Chuki Tey Sant Nikul Aunda (A sant can be found behind every stone) has eventually come true.

Perhaps Old Mc Donald’s farm too has come to be inhabited by these so called Sants.

Bhagautee and Bhagaotee

Bhagautee and Bhagaotee (ਭਗਉਤੀ and ਭਗੌਤੀ)

To the untrained ear, the words Bhagautee ਭਗਉਤੀ and Bhagaotee ਭਗੌਤੀ sound the same. In the written form, the difference lies in the phonology of the signs aunkar and the khanohra. Their meanings can be derived in accordance with the usage (and non-usage) of each in the SGGS.
