Re: Why Khalistan is a BAD Idea..

It would be helpful if you can simply answer a question and not answer a question with endless questions. I understand this is a bit desi style, however this makes the posts much longer and repetitive. Playing the devil’s advocate is a technique of taking the opposite side of a debate, not as one co...

Re: Why Khalistan is a BAD Idea..

I would like to make a request that you not ask to read your comments ‘carefully’. It sounds very condescending. You are asking me about future plans of khalistanis regarding Sikhs living outside Punjab. Since it is not something that I am for nor against, you would be better off directing that ques...

Re: Why Khalistan is a BAD Idea..

I will begin by saying that I am not an advocate for either side of the issue of Khalistan. However, I would like to answer some of your assertions and sometimes play the devil’s advocate. Firstly, you are asking any respondents to be open to the other side. I hope that sentiment applies to you also...

Re: Why 'Dasam Granth' validity debate at all

Actually, Mr. Kumar, Guru Nanak did receive His revelation from the blue. The word 'Sikh' was used by the Guru right from the start in Japji Sahib. Sikhi share similarities with other faiths because of the desire to connect with the divine. However, the approach is slightly different. As for the Das...

Re: Is Sikhi all about hairs?

The answer to all of the questions boil down to one following Sikhi strictly as the Guru intended vs evolving toward that goal. We are all at various stages. If the Hindu boy can follow the rehat as prescribed by the Guru, then he will become a shining example to all Sikhs. Paying attention to what ...

Re: Am I allowed to take Amrit?

In 1699, when Guru Ji gave the Amrit to the masses that were gathered, how many knew or had practiced before hand the 5 Banis?

Re: Prof Darshan singh

himmat ji, Most of us here TRY to be compassionate, merciful, humble, etc, etc. But what are we poor souls to do. We are humans, full of shortcomings. We also, as Sikhs, try to follow the Guru's teachings as best as we can. Now, if the professor has the right to express his opinion that attacks one ...

Re: What are the true reasons for the Sikh appearance?

himmat ji, It would be helpful to any discussion if there was less sarcasm in the posts. What you claim to be opinions are a direct attack on the written philosophy of the Gurus. It does not take much interpretation to understand that the Gurus are writing that They are expounding one message. To sa...

Re: What are the true reasons for the Sikh appearance?

himmat ji, I am glad that you are finally very candid with your thoughts regarding Sikhi. According to you: 1. The Gurus from the Sixth Guru onward had a parallel philosophy. You believe this inspite of the fact that all of the writings of the Gurus, including Guru Gobind Singh Ji wrote They were al...

Re: What are the true reasons for the Sikh appearance?

himmat ji, No one here has brought up Khalistan or the events of the recent past in India. They are not relevent to this discussion. We also get it. You have made it absolutely clear about the fiftieth time that you loath the so called mangers of the religion. You seem to be making the assumption th...
