ਅਕਾਲ ਹੀ ਅਕਾਲ ॥
"O my mind, serve the True One, as long as you have the breath of life"

AJAPA JAAP

AJAPA JAAP (continuos repetition of Naam/ Waheguru) is the spiritual condition of a person when the Simran (repitition of Waheguru) goes on an auto pilot mode in your Surat (mind) and in your Hirdey (heart) as explained below. It means that Simran becomes a round the clock thing inside you, Simran doesn't stop at any moment, it carries on and such a condition comes with Gurkirpa (God/ the guru's blessing) and after a lot of Bhagti Kamai(meditation) or can also be attained with the Kirpa (blessings) of a Puran Braham Gyani(ascended master). The experiences of bliss follow a path such as this:

1. Jaap (repetition) with Tounge – Rasna – this happens in Dharam Khand
2. Jaap with the breathing – with Swaas – this happens in Gyan Khand and Saram Khand
3. Then Naam (waheguru) goes into your mind – Surat, in your thinking, then it becomes Simran from Jaap – this is a very good stage – this happens in Saram Khand and Karam Khand.
4. The next stage is when Simran goes into Hirdey – this one is even much higher stage when Naam goes into Hirdey – this is where it goes on an automatic mode, this is where the real bhagti(meditation) starts.
5. The next stage is when Simran travels to the Nabhi, when Nabhi Kamal(lotus)blossoms – Karam Khand
6. The next Stage is when Simran goes into Kundlini – Mooladhaar Chakkar and spine – Karam Khand
7. The next stage is when Simran travels through the spine to the brain, and back to Surat where it completes the cycle.

This is what the real Mala (rosary) of Naam (meditation) is. When this happens then the Gyan Netter and Dassam Duaar (10th Gate) open s and you form a permanent connection with Akal Purakh (God), you start to receive divine knowledge – "Braham Gyan". This happens in Sach Khand. Enjoyment – Anand in Smadhi and Sun Smadhi is beyond description. That is why the enlightened souls go into v ery deep meditation some time for days together. You experience a lot of things during your Smadhi and Sun Smadhi, see a lot of things, meet a lot of Saints, Gurus, see Param Jyot, conversation with the Sants and Akal Purakh , it is beyond description wh at happens and through what you go when you go into deep meditation. This is the stage when all the doors – Bajjar Kapaat are opened and there is a continuous flow of Amrit, body is always full of Amrit.

8. The Simran in Smadhi and Sun Smadhi continues until NIRGUN AND SARGUN becomes one, at this point Simran goes into rom-rom – every bit of your body does Naam Simran, your Suksham Dehi becomes as pure as gold, your entire body is filled with Naam Amrit all the time. You become Braham Leen, and reach Atal Awastha. These stages are beyond description. Sat Chit Anand Ghar Hamare – Gurmukh Rom Rom Har Dhyae – Nirgun Sargun Nirankaar Sun Smadhi Aap, Apan Kia Nanka Apan Hi Fir Jaap and so on. One lives in Pu ran Parkash all the time and listens to Ilahi Kirtan(heavenly Kirtan/singing)– Anhad Naad Dhunis (heavenly music) all the time. It is just incredible experience. This is when one becomes Sat Ram Dass and is directed by the Almighty to serve humanity in h umbleness. And this is what we all wish to achieve being fortunate enough to move on the Bhagti Marg (spiritual path).

If you do Jaap with Rasna your Rasna will become pavitter - pious, by doing jaap in along breathing - swass your swass will become pious - pavitter, by doing Simran in mind-Surat-Chit- mind will become pious - pavitter (pure), and that is what you need t o do to make your mind pious - pavitter, that is how you will have control on your mind - MAN JEETE JAG JEET (win teh mind and you win the world) - MAN TU JYOT SAROOP HAI and you will be able to rise above Panj Doots - KAAM, KRODH, LOBH, MOH, AHANKAAR AN D ALSO ASA, TRISHNA, MANSHA, NINDYA, CHUGLI, BAKHILI, RAJ, JOBAN, DHAN, MAAL, ROOP, RAS, GANDH, THESE THUGS – MENTAL SICKNESSES, and when Simran goes in to Hirdey - and Simran will go to Hirdey by itself with Gurkirpa (guru's blessings) only, and so in C hit, Hirdey will become pavitter - pious and a pious Hirdey will become Mahaparupkari and Dana Dina, NIRBHAO, NIRVAIR and so on, it will start to absorb all the vital qualities of Akal Purakh (god) and will become a Puran Sant Hirda, and will achieve JIV AN MUKTI.

Rehansbhaee Keertan

ਕਲਜੁਗ ਮਹਿ ਕੀਰਤਨੁ ਪਰਧਾਨਾ ॥
kulujug mehi keeruthun purudhaanaa
In this Dark Age of Kali Yuga, the Kirtan of the Lord's Praises are most sublime and exalted.
gurumukh jupeeai laae dhiaanaa
ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਪੀਐ ਲਾਇ ਧਿਆਨਾ ॥
Become Gurmukh, chant and focus your concentration.
ਆਪਿ ਤਰੈ ਸਗਲੇ ਕੁਲ ਤਾਰੇ ਹਰਿ ਦਰਗਹ ਪਤਿ ਸਿਉ ਜਾਇਦਾ ॥੬॥
aap thurai sugulae kul thaarae har dhurugeh path sio jaaeidhaa
You shall save yourself, and save all your generations as well. You shall go to the Court of the Lord with honor. 6
(Ang 1075)

Guru sahib has shown the importance of Keertan in this Shabad.

(Ang 10, Bhai Sahib Gurdaas Jee)

ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਭਗਤਿ ਰਾਤੀਂ ਕਰੈ ਭਲਕੇ ਰਾਜ ਦੁਆਰੈ ਜਾਈ॥
praem bhugath raathee kurai bhulukae raaj dhuaarai jaaee
In the night he would immerse in loving devotion and in the morning he would serve at the door of the king.
ਆਏ ਸੰਤ ਪਰਾਹੁਣੇ ਕੀਰਤਨ ਹੋਆ ਰੈਣ ਸਬਾਈ॥
aaeae sunth puraahunae keeruthun hoaa rain subaaee
On one night some sadhus came to him and the whole night was spent in singing the Lord's praises
ਪਰਗਟ ਕਰੈ ਭਗਤ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥
purugutt kurai bhuguth vaddiaaee
God himself manifests the grandeur of the devotee.

Like Daas has said in previous posts, one has to read the Shabads in full in order get the full essence and to realize the full true meaning of the Shabads. In this Shabad Bhai Sahib Gurdaas Jee says that Bhagat Sain saw the loving devotion of Bhagat Kabir towards Vahiguroo, God and similarly became a disciple of Bhagat Ramanand, in the night he would immerse in loving devotion towards God and in the morning he would serve the King. One night some Saints came to visit Sain Jee and they sung the Lords praises (Keertan) all night, he was imbued in the love of these Rangley Sajjan (divinely coloured friends) he did not want them to leave. Sain Jee did not perform service at the King’s palace the next morning. God in Sains manifestation served the King, and the King was overjoyed with Sains service. The time came and the Saints had to leave, Bhagat Sain Jee bid them fairwell and returned to the Kings palace, the King saw him from a distance and shouted him nearby and offered his own robes to the Bhagat, he said “you have overpowered me” these words were heard by everyone at the palace.

ਭਗਤਾ ਕੀ ਪੈਜ ਰਖਹਿ ਤੂ ਆਪੇ ਏਹ ਤੇਰੀ ਵਿਡਆਈ ॥
bhuguthaa kee paij rukhehi thoo aapae eaeh thaeree vaddiaaee
You Yourself save the honor of Your devotees; this is Your Glory, O Lord.
ਜਨਮ ਜਨਮ ਕੇ ਕਿਲਿਵਖ ਦੁਖ ਕਾਟਿਹ ਦੁਿਬਧਾ ਰਤੀ ਨ ਰਾਈ ॥੩॥
junum junum kae kilavikh dhukh kaattehi dhubidhaa ruthee n raaee
You cleanse them of the sins and the pains of countless incarnations; You love them without even an iota of duality. 3
ਹਮ ਮੂੜ ਮੁਗਧ ਕਿਛੁ ਬੂਝਿਹ ਨਾਹੀ ਤੂ ਆਪੇ ਦੇਿਹ ਬੁਝਾਈ ॥
hum moorr mugudh kish boojhehi naahee thoo aapae dhaehi bujhaaee
I am foolish and ignorant, and understand nothing. You Yourself bless me with understanding.
(Ang 1155)

This is the power of singing the Lords praises all night in the company of the Saints. The word Rehan subha aee means from night day has come, alternately serving the lord all night the day has arrived. Rehan=night, subha=day, aee=arrived.

Why is it important to sit through a Rehansbaaee Keertan all night without leaving the Darbaar (Hall in where sangat sit)?

When Daas first came in to Sikhee, Daas was introduced to Rehansbhaaees by some Gurmukhs, Daas still remembers Daas' first Rehansbhaaee; Daas will never forget this it was like being in heaven. Daas was more familiar with doing all nighters at clubs, never went to a Gurdwara and all of a sudden was doing an all nighter sitting in Guru Sahibs hazooree singing the praises of the Lord in amongst the Saints.

Wow heaven on hell, Guru Sahib has called the Sangat Saints where the Lords praises are being sung.

ਸਾਂਤਿ ਸੂਖ ਸਹਜ ਧੁਿਨ ਉਪਜੀ ਸਾਧੂ ਸੰਿਗ ਿਨਵਾਸਾ ਜੀਉ ॥੧॥
saath sookh sehuj dhun oupujee saadhoo sung nivaasaa jeeo
The music of intuitive peace, poise and tranquility wells up within; I dwell in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy. 1
(Ang 105)

Daas struggled through the Rehansbhaaee, Daas had to leave the Darbaar 2 to 3 times. As Daas continued attending Rehansbaaees Daas noticed a few Gurmukh Sajjan who sat all night (7pm to 5am) Daas was totally amazed, after experiencing this Daas did Ardaas (prayer) to Guru Sahib asking him if he would please bless Daas with the Anand (ecstasy) and effort to sit through full Rehansbhaaees and every Darbaar Daas attended, this Ardaas came true through the blessings of Guru Sahib. One has to be subconsciously aware of Guru Sahib when one does Ardaas, when the Ardaas comes true one has to thank Guru Sahib as we can not do anything through personal effort.

ਬਿਰਥਾ ਕੋਇ ਨ ਜਾਇ ਿਜ ਆਵੈ ਤੁਧੁ ਆਿਹ ॥੯॥
biruthaa koe n jaae j aavai thudh aahi
Those who come to You with love and faith are never turned away empty-handed. 9
(Ang 961)

Daas' personal opinion is that it is very important for one to attend Rehansbhaaees above this it is more important to sit through the full Rehansbhaaee. Before we enter the Darbaar Sahib one should use the lavatory and eat if one is hungry therefore there will be no physical hindrances or excuses for one to leave the Darbaar. When we leave the Darbaar once, it becomes very difficult to focus afterwards as one gets stuck in indreaan de ras (taste of five senses).

ਕਹੈ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਹੋਰਿ ਅਨ ਰਸ ਸਿਭ ਵੀਸਰੇ ਜਾ ਹਿਰ ਵਸੈ ਮਿਨ ਆਇ ॥੩੨॥
kehai naanuk hor an rus sabh veesurae jaa har vusai man aae
Says Nanak, all other tastes and essences of the 5 senses are forgotten, when the Lord comes to dwell within the mind. 32
(Ang 917)

When we come to Guru Sahibs Darbaar there should only be one focus - this is only of Naam and Baanee anything else is a delusion of ego, we should not come to meet friends, have meetings, discussions, socialize etc as these are of no use to our mind and soul, and one will loose focus of the true reason why one is here. Before one sits down one should greet Guru Sahib with Fateh (Vahiguroo Jee Kaa Khalsaa, Vahiguroo Jee Kee Fateh), the Khalsa (pure beings) belong to God, victory is Gods. Daas usually does a little Ardaas (prayer) here to Guru Sahib asking Guru Sahib for Anand in the Keertan and his support for Daas to sit through the full Rehansbhaaee in total Anand, if this Ardaas is done in full faith it will always come true, as Daas is aware what is going on outside the Darbaar is a waste of time.

Daas is aware of three ways in which will help sit through a full Rehansbhaaee Keertan, ten hours of constant praising the lord. Firstly one focuses ones concentration single mindedly on the Gurmantar (Vahiguroo) and practices a ten hour Abhiyaas on Naam, using their tongue, breath or mind, depending on what stage one is at.

ਪੰਚਾ ਕਾ ਗੁਰੁ ਏਕੁ ਧਿਆਨੁ ॥
punchaa kaa gur eaek dhiaan
The chosen ones meditate single-mindedly on the Guru.
(Ang 3)

Secondly, one can train ones mind to listen to the Keertan and listen to the Gurmantar at the same time, this takes a lot of practice.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਮਨੁ ਸਮਝਾਈਐ ਆਤਮ ਰਾਮੁ ਬੀਚਾਿਰ ॥੨॥
gurumukh mun sumujhaaeeai aathum raam beechaar
The Gurmukhs train their minds to contemplate the Lord, the Supreme Soul. 2
(Ang 18)

Thirdly, one can focus ones concentration in the crown Chakra in ones head and sing along with the Keertan loud all night, doing this one will be aware of Guru Sahib (Saabhdhaanee) because ones concentration will be Tikkhee (poised) above in the crown Chakra of the head and one will not be distracted by anything as all one will hear is the praises of the Lord.

Daas' personal advice is only use one of the three through the full Rehansbhaaee at any one time, if we chop and change we will loose our focus. Praatan (olden day) Singhs are seen singing Keertan with their head in the air in many photographs (the head in the air is a sign of concentration in the higher consciousness). Ones stays in Anand for 1 hour with ones head in the air then gets tired lack of Abhiyaas and concentration. Praatan Gurmukhs lived in the higher consciousness and constantly had their heads raised in the air through Keertan as this naturally happens when one is in the state of Bliss; Gursikhs live in this Anand. The length of time it happens for is down to an individual’s Jeevani (earning of Naam and Baanee in ones life)

ਰਾਜਾ ਰਾਮ ਅਨਹਦ ਕਿੰਗੁਰੀ ਬਾਜੈ ॥
raajaa raam anehudh kinguree baajai
The Unstruck Melody of the Sovereign Lord's Harp vibrates;
ਜਾ ਕੀ ਦਿਸਿਟ ਨਾਦ ਿਲਵ ਲਾਗੈ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
jaa kee dhisatt naadh liv laagai by His Glance of Grace, we are lovingly attuned to the Sound-current of the Naad. 1Pause
ਭਾਠੀ ਗਗਨੁ ਸਿੰਿਙਆ ਅਰੁ ਚੁੰਿਙਆ ਕਨਕ ਕਲਸ ਇਕੁ ਪਾਇਆ ॥
bhaathee gugun sinngiaa ar chunngiaa kunuk kulus eik paaeiaa
The Tenth Gate of my crown chakra is the distilling fire, and the channels of the Ida and Pingala are the funnels, to pour in (naam) and empty out the golden vat.
(Ang 92)

Obviously we will struggle at first as our concentration will be weak but with Abhiyaas (practice) if we hang on in there the concentration becomes a lot stronger (total anand) all night. The mind forces us to get up and makes weak excuses this is the battle we have to conquer, we should not struggle in one position, if one needs to move around one should feel free, as pain will take away Anand of Keertan, one should feel free to do Chohar Sahib Sevaa (Sevaa behind Guru Sahib) or even switch legs but main focus is to stay in Darbaar Sahib; this is where the true blessings are. With Abhiyaas this practice becomes very easy and our account of Naam and Baanee rises. With practice and blessing one will sit through Rehansbhaaees all night in one Chawnkrda (position), again personal Jeevanee and concentration.

I know as my Blessed Divine Guru, who is the most beautiful and wise. 4710

In this shabad Bhagat Kabir Jee talks about beating ones mind physically and mentally as this filthy mind does not understand any other language, it is always stuck in the taste of the senses, this is when the Gurmukh is liberated.

Why does Daas recommend Rehansbhaaee Keertans?

Firstly, this is a practice in which definitely takes place once a month if not more. Secondly, one will not receive this type of Sangat in Ghirastee Jeevan (house holder in society) regularly as often as once a month, Daas' personal opinion is that they should be held more often. In this Sangat are spiritually blessed spirits with an amazing Jeevan and Nitnem (daily routine), sitting in the same Sangat as these Gursikhs one has to be truly blessed (Vadbhagee).

ਵਡਭਾਗੀ ਮਿਲੁ ਸੰਗਤੀ ਸਚਾ ਸਬਦੁ ਿਵਸਾਹੁ ॥
vuddubhaagee mil sunguthee suchaa subudh visaahu
O most fortunate ones, join the Sangat, the Blessed Congregation; purchase the True Word of the Shabad.
(Ang 46)

Thirdly, Rehansbhaaees are attended by Naujvaan (young) and older, mostly Amritdhaaree Gursikhs from many Jathebandeeaan (organizations) as these Gurmukhs realize the true essence of Keertan.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਬੁਢੇ ਕਦੇ ਨਾਹੀ ਿਜਨ੍ਹ੍ਹਾ ਅੰਤਿਰ ਸੁਰਿਤ ਿਗਆਨੁ ॥
gurumukh budae kudhae naahee jinuaa anthar surath giaan
The Gurmukhs never grow old; within them is intuitive understanding and spiritual wisdom. ਸਦਾ ਸਦਾ ਹਰਿ ਗੁਣ ਰਵਿਹ ਅੰਤਿਰ ਸਹਜ ਿਧਆਨੁ ॥
sudhaa sudhaa har gun ruvehi anthar sehuj dhiaan
They chant the Praises of the Lord, forever and ever; deep within, they intuitively meditate on the Lord.
ਓਇ ਸਦਾ ਅਨੰਦਿ ਿਬਬੇਕ ਰਹਿਹ ਦੁਿਖ ਸੁਿਖ ਏਕ ਸਮਾਿਨ ॥
oue sudhaa anundh bibaek rehehi dhukh sukh eaek sumaan
They dwell forever in blissful knowledge of the Lord; they look upon pain and pleasure as one and the same.
ਤਿਨਾ ਨਦਰੀ ਇਕੋ ਆਇਆ ਸਭੁ ਆਤਮ ਰਾਮੁ ਪਛਾਨੁ ॥੪੪॥
thinaa nudhuree eiko aaeiaa subh aathum raam pushaan
They see the One Lord in all, and realize the Lord, the Supreme Soul of all. 44
(Ang 1413)

Daas used the word older Gursikhs, subconsciously Daas felt bad so used this Shabad to prove Gursikhs might look older physically but mentally and spiritually are a lot healthier and wiser, ONLY the ones who live in Guru Sahibs hukum of Athe Pehar Naam Abhiyaas (24/7 Naam Jap). Last of all every Human being has the potential to sit through a full Rehansbhaaee but one does not believe in ones self, sitting through a Rehansbaahee makes a Gurmukhs Amrit velaa a lot stronger, as one thinks if I can do it in Sangat, then I can most certainly do it at home, one needs to have faith and always needs to be positive, ones Nitnem (daily routine and Kamaaee meditating during the day becomes a lot stronger and focused). Daas would like to say some bitter words - if one can not sit through full Rehansbhaaees or does not attempt to, it will become very difficult for ones concentration and Jeevan (life) to develop further and one might not receive Jeevan Mukhatee (liberated whilst alive) in this life.

Bentee: Please if one comes to Rehansbhaaee sit through the full Rehansbhaaee and one will realize an amazing change in ones Jeevan, Bhull Chuk Maaf. Praatan Singhs sat through full Akhand Paaths; 48 hours of Abhiyaas. Rehansbhaaee is only a fifth of an Akhand Paath, we are decreasing in Abhiyaas as time goes on.

ਸਬਦਿ ਮਰੈ ਮਨੁ ਮਾਰੈ ਅਪੁਨਾ ਮੁਕਤੀ ਕਾ ਦਰੁ ਪਾਵਿਣਆ ॥੩॥
subadh murai mun maarai apunaa mukuthee kaa dhur paavaniaa
Those who die in the Shabad and subdue their own minds, obtain the door of liberation. 3
(Ang 116)

ਸੰਤ ਸਭਾ ਗੁਰੁ ਪਾਈਐ ਮੁਕਤਿ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਧੇਣੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
sunth subhaa gur paaeeai mukath pudhaaruth dhaen
In the Society of the Saints, the Guru is found. He is the Treasure of Liberation, the Source of all good fortune. 1Pause
(Ang 18)

It is very rare you get so many Amritdhaaree Gursikhs together at any one time, so earn Lahaa (profit).

ਪ੍ਰਾਣੀ ਤੂੰ ਆਇਆ ਲਾਹਾ ਲੈਣਿ ॥
praanee thoon aaeiaa laahaa lain O mortal, you came here to earn a profit.
ਲਗਾ ਕਿਤੁ ਕੁਫਕੜੇ ਸਭ ਮੁਕਦੀ ਚਲੀ ਰੈਿਣ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
lugaa kith kufukurrae subh mukudhee chulee rain
What useless activities are you attached to? Your life-night is coming to its end. 1Pause
(Ang 43)

When Guru Sahib talks about a profit in this Shabad, Guru Sahib refers to Naam and Baanee, Guru Sahib says ones night is passing away in vain. Lets earn our profit of Naam and Baanee and sit through full Rehansbhaaees for one to progress a lot further in ones personal Jeevan (life). Rehansbhaaee Keertans helped Daas amazingly in Daas' Jeevan as ones concentration most certainly develops further. One should attend Naam Abhiyaas camps, Keertan Darbaars, camps in general, divaans in general and persuade ones mind not to get up until after smaapthee (end), the mind will make many excuses as it is ones enemy until it is liberated. Rehansbhaaee Keertans are once every month in different cities and there is usually transport available if one wants to know more please visit the a.k.j. Site: www.akj.org.

Education

Why do we further our Education?

Most of the time we further our studies is due to the fact, we want our Children to be happy in the near future, we don’t want them to struggle in any way, we have large Houses we need good income to help pay the mortgage. We always think about the future, we want to stay content and happy through Money, this will resolve all our worldly affairs. Some study so that people do not call them illiterate. Some study thinking life will become easier through a high position. Some study because; they are forced to by their worldly Parents. Some study for praise and a name. Some spend their entire life in education. Some study to support their Parents, because they have seen a hard life.

SOME STUDY FOR THE WELFARE AND BETTERMENT OF THE UNIVERSE AND PANTH. IS THIS TRUE? There are many more reasons we further our education.

For all the reasons of studying Daas has mentioned above, one will never find contentment and liberation. One has not learnt how to live in the great will of the Lord Vahiguroo. One becomes wise (SiaaNaa) and tries to predict the future. One has lost many breaths and years of the profit of Naam.

After furthering our education we expect life to become much easier and less stressful, but in reality life becomes more difficult and stressful, this is due to the fact with power comes great responsibility. With high flying jobs comes much more commitment and most of the time we physically and mentally have to take work home with us, in which causes us to spend less time with our Family and Kids furthering their education on Gurmat, and most of all loosing profit of Naam. Life in general can become an uphill battle.

What does Bhagat Kabeer Jee say about Bhagat Prehalaad Jee when, he was sent to School by his Parents?

ਹਰਨਾਖਸੁ ਛੇਦਿਓ ਨਖ ਿਬਦਾਰ ॥੪॥
hurunaakhus shaedhiou nukh bidhaar
He killed Harnaakhash, tearing him apart with his nails. 4

ਓਇ ਪਰਮ ਪੁਰਖ ਦੇਵਾਧਿ ਦੇਵ ॥
oue purum purukh dhaevaadh dhaev
The Supreme Lord God, the Divinity of the divine,
ਭਗਤਿ ਹੇਿਤ ਨਰਿਸੰਘ ਭੇਵ ॥
bhugath haeth nurasingh bhaev
for the sake of His devotee, assumed the form of the man-lion.

ਕਹਿ ਕਬੀਰ ਕੋ ਲਖੈ ਨ ਪਾਰ ॥
kehi kubeer ko lukhai n paar
Says Kabeer, no one can know the Lord's limits.

ਪ੍ਰਹਲਾਦ ਉਧਾਰੇ ਅਨਿਕ ਬਾਰ ॥੫॥੪॥
prehulaadh oudhaarae anik baar
He saves His devotees like Prahlaad over and over again. 54

Vahiguroo, only if Guru Sahib blesses us with the Preetee (love) in which he blessed Prehalaad. Prehalaad was not interested in School, as he realised through studying he would loose the profit of Naam. Prehalaad had realized he could not let go of the Lords name, Vahiguroo, for a second, as this would cause suffering to his Soul, so he decided not to study, he was not interested in any worldly affairs, and he feared nobody apart from the great Lord. The great Lord came to his rescue through Nar-Singh (half lion, half man) and rescued his loving devotee Prehalaad, as his Father wanted him to meditate on his Name not the Lords Name, Prehalaad disagreed and left the rest in the will of God.

Don’t we want to become Saints like Bhagat Prehalaad Jee and numerous more mentioned in Gurbaanee? Don’t we want to spread the teachings of the Great Lord like these great Saints did? Lets ask ourselves what is the reason we are here? Why are we loosing the profit of Naam? Why are we spending most our time in worldly affairs? Why do we even let go of Naam for a second? This is not Guru Sahibs Hukum.

(Ang 524)

ਮੁਸਿ ਮੁਿਸ ਰੋਵੈ ਕਬੀਰ ਕੀ ਮਾਈ ॥

Kabeer's mother sobs, cries and bewails

ਏ ਬਾਰਿਕ ਕੈਸੇ ਜੀਵਿਹ ਰਘੁਰਾਈ ॥੧॥

- O Lord, how will my grandchildren live? 1

ਤਨਨਾ ਬੁਨਨਾ ਸਭੁ ਤਜਿਓ ਹੈ ਕਬੀਰ ॥
thununaa bununaa subh thajiou hai kubeer
Kabeer has given up all his spinning and weaving,

ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਿਲਿਖ ਲੀਓ ਸਰੀਰ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
har kaa naam likh leeou sureer
and written the Name of the Lord on his body. 1Pause

ਜਬ ਲਗੁ ਤਾਗਾ ਬਾਹਉ ਬੇਹੀ ॥
jub lug thaagaa baaho baehee
As long as I pass the thread through the bobbin,

ਤਬ ਲਗੁ ਬਿਸਰੈ ਰਾਮੁ ਸਨੇਹੀ ॥੨॥
thub lug bisurai raam sunaehee
I forget the Lord, my Beloved. 2

ਓਛੀ ਮਤਿ ਮੇਰੀ ਜਾਿਤ ਜੁਲਾਹਾ ॥
oushee math maeree jaath julaahaa
My intellect is lowly - I am a weaver by birth,

ਹਰਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਲਿਹਓ ਮੈ ਲਾਹਾ ॥੩॥
har kaa naam lehiou mai laahaa
but I have earned the profit of the Name of the Lord. 3

ਕਹਤ ਕਬੀਰ ਸੁਨਹੁ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਈ ॥
kehuth kubeer sunuhu maeree maaee
Says Kabeer, listen, O my mother

humuraa ein kaa dhaathaa eaek rughuraaee
- the Lord alone is the Provider, for me and my children. 42

Bhagat Kabeer Jee was a weaver by trade, weaving takes very little concentration and thinking. The occupation of a Doctor, Solicitor, Director and so on takes a lot more thought and concentration. Even living the life of a simple weaver Bhagat Kabeer Jee was still upset saying, when I pass the thread through the bobbin I forget the Lords name for a second. Bhagat Kabeer Jees Mother was also worried about the future, but Kabeer Jee lived in the Lords command, and had realized only having faith in the great Lord will resolve all my worldly affairs, and God will provide for my Children. Why do we worry after reading the pure Bachan (words) of great Saints like Kabeer Jee? Sorry to say we have very little faith in God, faith only increases and gets stronger through the profit of Naam.

naanuk laekhai eik gul hor houmai jhukhunaa jhaakh
O Nanak, only one thing is of any account: everything else is useless babbling and idle talk in ego. 1

In this Shabad Guru Nanak Dev Jee has made it quite clear through education one will not be liberated, this can be the root cause of Ego and looking down on others. One has to realize the root cause of this rebirth in to human incarnation, the root cause is liberating our Soul through the pure substance of Naam Abhiyaas, so the noose of life and death is cut.

A few Gursikhs will argue that we need educated Gursikhs to fight political battles, Daas agrees, but this Sevaa given to these particular Gursikhs by Guru Sahib will not be Parvaan in the Lords court until every breath is full with the loving devotion of Guru Sahibs name, only then this political Sevaa gifted by Guru Sahib will be fulfilled in Chardee Kallaa (high spirits).

Athai Pehar (24,7) Naam Abhiyaas is Guru Sahibs Hukum, if we do not meditate Athai Pehar we are turning our back on Guru Sahib Physically and Spiritually. We spend more time in Asool (rules) and discipline and forget the only substance, which will purify the mind and please Guru Sahib, which is Athai Pehar Naam Abhiyaas. This is mandatory in a Gursikhs life without this Guru Sahib says, one does not show enough interest in the love of the Lord, and Guru Sahib goes on to say Sikhee was only created by the Lords name, Shabad.

If one has Asool (rules) it is amazing for ones personal Jeevan, but one has to remember Vahiguroo. Guru Sahib says through and through in Baanee, any Karam or Asool in which the Lords Name does not abide are worthless to ones Jeevan and Guru Sahib.

SO THEREFORE THE FIRST ASOOL AFTER AMMRIT IS ATHAI PEHAR NAAM ABHIYAAS, PLEASE DO NOT LOOK ON NAAM LIGHTLY, SIKHEE IS WORTHLESS WITHOUT THE KAMAEE (PROFIT) OF NAAM.

False Heros

I have been thinking for some time whether it is appropriate for sikhs to have false heroes. A Singh cannot be a fan of a manmukh sansaari person like Tendulkar, Amitabh Bachan, Beckham etc.

The real soora or hero is that person who has subdued his or her mind and realised his or her real self. A person who can act very well i.e. can do fake crying or fake laughing very well can never be a hero. Same way a person who can kick a ball very well or a person who can hit the ball with his bat very well cannot be called a hero for this one quality. Why then people go crazy after these fake stars? Gurbani explains it very beautiful:


jih karanee hovehi sarami(n)dhaa eihaa kamaanee reeth ||
You have made it your habit to practice those deeds which will bring you shame.


sa(n)th kee ni(n)dhaa saakath kee poojaa aisee dhrirrhee bipareeth ||1||
You slander the Saints, and you worship the faithless cynics; such are the corrupt ways you have adopted. ||1||


This is the sign of Kalyug that Gursikhs or the Bhagats of Vaheguru are slandered but thugs, rascals and scoundrels are worshipped. In another shabad Siri Guru Nanak Dev jee beautifully states the symptoms of manmukhs in Kalyug:

khottae ko kharaa kehai kharae saar n jaanai ||
He calls the counterfeit genuine, and does not know the value of the genuine.


a(n)dhhae kaa naao paarakhoo kalee kaal viddaanai ||3||
The blind man is known as an appraiser; this Dark Age of Kali Yuga is so strange! ||3||


soothae ko jaagath kehai jaagath ko soothaa ||
The sleeper is said to be awake, and those who are awake are like sleepers.


jeevath ko mooaa kehai mooeae nehee rothaa ||4||
The living are said to be dead, and no one mourns for those who have died. ||4||


aavath ko jaathaa kehai jaathae ko aaeiaa ||
One who is coming is said to be going, and one who is gone is said to have come.


par kee ko apunee kehai apuno nehee bhaaeiaa ||5||
That which belongs to others, he calls his own, but he has no liking for that which is his. ||5||


meet(h)ae ko kourraa kehai karrooeae ko meet(h)aa ||
That which is sweet is said to be bitter, and the bitter is said to be sweet.


raathae kee ni(n)dhaa karehi aisaa kal mehi ddeet(h)aa ||6||
One who is imbued with the Lord's Love is slandered - his is what I have seen in this Dark Age of Kali Yuga. ||6||


chaeree kee saevaa karehi t(h)aakur nehee dheesai ||
He serves the maid, and does not see his Lord and Master.


pokhar neer viroleeai maakhan nehee reesai ||7||
Churning the water in the pond, no butter is produced. ||7||


Young boys and girls get crush over these fake heroes and they don’t realise that just because a person is very good at faking a cry or can do a good acting of being in anger, does not mean that the fake hero will also be good for them if they had a relationship with them. Most of these fake heroes are very unsuccessful at their home front. So why make them heroes.

These heroes and sports persons may be good at acting (and kanjarpuna) or kicking the ball or batting but they are all destined to go to Jammdoots for they have no bhagti. What is their status in the eyes of Guru Sahib? Imagine, what will be their fate in the next world? I can remember the famous pankiti of Gurbani to express this:

“Vadda hoya dunidaar, gal sangal ghat chalaiya”||
(Person who is considered to be great in this world by worldly standards is taken to the court of Dharam Rai with chains around his neck).

Such persons who are destined to be dragged to the court of Dharam Rai with chains around their necks, should never the heroes of Gursikhs. We will get only thus far as our heroes are. If our heroes are kanjars like Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachan, cricket players or soccer players, then it seems logical that we will suffer the same fate as our heroes. If our heroes are Baba Deep Singh, Bhai Gurdas jee, Baba Budda jee, we can expect some kind of kindness from Guru Sahib.

Spread The Message Of Naam

Waheguroo ji ka khalsa Waheguroo ji ki fathe!

This article is about the importance of Amritvela...and what Maharaj has said about Amritvela...! The Shabad goes as follows..

mÚ 4 ]
Fourth Mehla:

gur siqgur kw jo isKu AKwey su Blky auiT hir nwmu iDAwvY ]
One who calls himself a Sikh of the Guru, the True Guru, shall rise in the early morning hours and meditate on the Lord's Name.

Mahraj is telling us about the importance of Amritwela...Maharaj has CLEARLY stated that he or she is only a true Gursikh that wakes up Amritvela..that being 12am or 2 am...it is important for a sikh to wake up at Amritvela...other wise one shouldn’t even call themselves the Sikhs of the Guru. Every day we go to the gurdwara and bow our heads in front of Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib ji maharaj, yet we don’t follow anything maharaj says! Some even wake up and do Nitnem but go back to sleep this is not Gurmat and pure manmat as you will see by the next few tukhs....!!

audmu kry Blky prBwqI iesnwnu kry AMimRq sir nwvY ]
Upon arising early in the morning, he is to bathe, and cleanse himself in the pool of nectar.

It is very important for a Gursikh to have an ishnaan in the morning but even more important to jaap naam while having a bath other wise there is no point. The reason for this is because even if we are not in Amritsar and cannot have ishnaan in the holy tank we can still get the same flavor of ishnaan in our own bathrooms! If we don’t jap naam or do some kind of Gurbani abhiyaas whilst bathing then it will not be accepted by maharaj.


aupdyis gurU hir hir jpu jwpY siB iklivK pwp doK lih jwvY ]
Following the Instructions of the Guru, he is to chant the Name of the Lord, Har, Har. All sins, misdeeds and negativity shall be erased.

Wahegurooo....following the instructions of the guru...are we doing this...sadly NO! It is pure manmat to have the guts to wake up and not jaap naam...even doing nitnem alone will NOT have a great value if we do not jaap naam...as this is what mahraj tells us to do THROUGHOUT mahrajs gurbani!! So how can we say that naam is nothing...pure manmat thinking!! There are many ways one can build there naam kamai, (with waheguroo jis kirpa) one can start of by doing 5 mins, 10mins, half hour, and then hour, when we start doing a hour we will not want to STOP! We will then find the true meaning of waheguroo and his love!

iPir cVY idvsu gurbwxI gwvY bhidAw auTidAw hir nwmu iDAwvY ]
Then, at the rising of the sun, he is to sing Gurbani; whether sitting down or standing up, he is to meditate on the Lord's Name.

This is why it is stated that waking up and doing only nitnem then going back to sleep is manmat...Mahraj tells us that when the sun is rising that is the time of doing the nitnem that has been blessed to you by mahraj!! But it does not stop there....jaaping naam through out the whole day is very very important...Even if we do wake up amritwela but don’t jaap naam in the day time then you are just a sleep in the day...Hukam is to jaap naam in the day!! Jaap naam 24/7..specialy in the day...while working...doing kaam...etc..!! NAAM IS EVERYTHING...!!

jo swis igrwis iDAwey myrw hir hir so gurisKu gurU min BwvY ]
One who meditates on my Lord, Har, Har, with every breath and every morsel of food - that GurSikh becomes pleasing to the Guru's Mind.

Here mahraj continues to show the importance of naam japna through out the day...when we start to do athi pehr naam abhiyaas we will start to get closer to waheguroo and mahraj will show us more love, as this is bringing you closer to Mahraj!! So why waste time, if we have true love then we will not be wasting any more time. START NOW!!

As every one is aware of there is a lot of beadbi of Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib Ji Mahraj, but who said we are not doing beadbi…we don’t listen to mahraj…when we took Amrit we promised to mahraj…that we will sacrifice our man, dhan to you…but have we really done this! NO because we do not jaap naam we said we are yours but yet don’t listen to a word what mahraj says! WE LIED TO MAHRAJ….what can be a bigger beadbi then this even his Sikhs are turning away, mahraj will be more hurt by this…!!
What happened in 1984, has hurt the khalsa panth a lot…we talk about the Indian government did very bad…the Indian Government attacked from the front…so we went fighting but how about now…they are still attacking but from behind we don’t realize this because we are blinded by the pleasure, some even say we are going to wait for a leader or going to go when there is another attack on the panth, the most powerful leader is Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib ji, that’s all we should be concentrating on.

Sant Jarnail singh ji was a great leader for the Sikhs, as he did parchaar on seva, naam and sacrifice, he awoke the panth, but sadly the panth has gone back to sleep.

…there is a lot of ‘dhil’ (weaknesses) in the panth, a lot of division in the panth, due to rehit…but why??? There is only one main rehit and that is naam as mahraj explains…everything outside naam is false..what ever the rehit is!! Do not argue about rehit get together and jaap naam…read Gurbani, do veechar and mainly do amritwela! Some believe that we need to do something for the panth and not just jaap naam..yeh this is correct, but without naam we can not do anything…how will we be able do seva for the panth if we are not strong in mind! If we can’t wake up amritwela then… sorry but we will NEVER get Khalsa Raj, we will get no where physically or mentally!

ijs no dieAwlu hovY myrw suAwmI iqsu gurisK gurU aupdysu suxwvY ]
That person, unto whom my Lord and Master is kind and compassionate - upon that GurSikh, the Guru's Teachings are bestowed.

Mahraj will only be kind and compassionate to us if we do what mahraj says…his hukam is to jaap naam…through out Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib ji it does veechar on naam…mahraj tells us NAAM JAPO, NAAM JAPO, NAAM JAPO!

NOTE - that Gurbani and Naam are two different things….this does not mean that they are higher then each other Gurbani still does usttaat of waheguroo. Gurbani tells us what to do…instructions…but doing those things is different..if mahraj says naam japo..then we have to use the gurmantar that our Panj Piyareh have taught us as for the Sikhs, Waheguroooo!

jnu nwnku DUiV mMgY iqsu gurisK kI jo Awip jpY Avrh nwmu jpwvY ]2]
Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of that GurSikh, who himself chants the Naam, and inspires others to chant it. 2

Finally, mahrajs ends the shabad by telling us to jaap naam ourselves and get others to jaap naam! It is important to organize Keertan programs and Simran programs around your local area…as mahraj will do a lot of kirpa on us!! Remember the best place to jaap naam is when there is ekta not different groups…don’t do things out of hanker do it out of love! ‘Sach kaho sun leho sabhe jin prem kiao thin hee prabh paiyo!!’

Please forgive this bhikari of any mistakes as I am to a leaner, I am only human and will surely make mistakes, as the sangat I put my hands together and pray at your feet to do ardaas for me!

Waheguroo ji ka khalsa Waheguroo ji ki fathe!

Intoxication!!

WAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA WAHEGURU JI KE FATEH


In society today we have a number of people who drink, smokr induldge intoxicants.. and a growing number of this is happening amongst the Sikhs

I’d like to say that its common sense to know that these things are false. The quran of Muslims doesn’t say drugs and all that to be wrong, and so Muslims without a clue all of a sudden think that it’s fine to have these things. The world already knows what’s wrong and right, but still it cannot help itself. The Sikhs have been given a light to guide the world in the right direction, but it’s up to them to win over evil and join the good.

Mahraj has made our bodies in perfect form and by taking such drugs and intoxicants one is harming the body of the light of waheguru an thus also changing they way it behaves.

People induldge in intoxicants far as I no is to look “BAD” too make them look as if they are “dons”

You have people argueing over each other when they are drunk that
“oh I’m a gangster , oh nah I’m a warrior etc…

they waste their lives away in this falsehood and over the false impression of them being badboyz!!

Gugu dhumaamaa baajiou pariou neesaanai ghaao
The battle drum beats in the sky of the mind, aim is taken and the wound is inflicted

Khaeth j maanddiou soorumaa ab joojhun ko dhaao
The spritual warriors enter the field of battle : now is the time to fight


Mahraj has said only those are true warriors who can fight against they mind and keep away from such evils of intoxicants.. only these warriors will be saved in this world while the ignorant and blind suffer in hell.

sach miliaa thin sofeeaa raakhan ko dharavaar 1
Those who do not use intoxicants are true; they dwell in the Court of the Lord. 1

These people that have gotten away from these things are true in the court of the lord they have understood and reconized the evils of such intoxicants that are kalyug tools which get one away from the truth and bring him into falsehood

kamalaa bhram bheeth kamalaa bhram bheeth hae theekhan madh bipareeth hae avadhh akaarathh jaath
Maya is the wall of doubt - Maya is the wall of doubt. It is such a powerful and destructive intoxicant; it corrupts and wastes away one's life.

As Sikhs we are lucky to have guidance to become one with god but yet we decide to suffer in pain and please our mind we are becoming slaves of our minds instead of making our mind our slave

maaeiaa magan narak lai jaaee 1 rehaao
The intoxication of Maya leads the others to hell. 1Pause

jooaa khaelai madh peevai so narak mae(n) jaavai

Those who gamble or drink alcohol will suffer in hell.

maanas bhariaa aaniaa maanas bhariaa aae jith peethai math dhoor hoe baral pavai vich aae aapanaa paraaeiaa n pashhaanee khasamahu dhhakae khaae jith peethai khasam visarai dharageh milai sajaae jhoot(h)aa madh mool n peechee jae kaa paar vasaae

One person brings a full bottle, and another fills his cup. Drinking the wine, his intelligence departs, and madness enters his mind; he cannot distinguish between his own and others, and he is struck down by his Lord and Master. Drinking it, he forgets him


Gurbani states that the foolish manmukh (one who does what he likes), considers Amrit as bitter and bitter as sweet.Alchohol is a bitter poision. It is made by turning sweet things such as Sugar into a toxic bitter liquid. It has the side effect of drying your blood and killing cells in the Liver and Brain.All drugs are toxins to the body because they are poisionous. We are the fools who consider this a good ''BUZZ''. Also intoxicatants limit the mind by putting it into boundaries.However Khalsa is free from all boundaries and ever in Chardi Kala, therefore abstain from this temporary buzz.

It is clear that bani is against such intoxicants but yet we refuse to believe this.


Daas has even heard people thinking that the Gurus and Singh & Singhnis in praatan times must have used drugs or alcohol when in battle so that they would not feel pain

This is pathetic that people ave begun to think this and people are just trying to find away to make what they do to be acceptable

Noway would the Gurus on one hand condem intoxicants and then on the other hand induldge in them. People that belvie they did will find out the truth themshelves and will end up repenting!!!

The Khalsa of the past were naam abyaasis they mediated 24/7 on naam ( the most powerful thing in the universe)

They did not feel pain because of their profit of naam they had earnt from hours of meditation .

People these days in kalyug reject the power of naam and do not belive that such thing can happen.. this is because they have no faith in naam or in the teachings of the Gurus even though they say that they do.!!!

Throught out bani it has been explained that naam is the cure to all diseases and people reject this.

The reason they reject naam is because of ignorance they have not japed naam them shelves or have experience the power of naam.

If you give a person that’s deaf and cannot talk some sugar and then ask him to explain how sweet the taste is he cannot explain!!
That is the same with Sikhi and naam the gurmukh cannot explain the feeling of the naam ras!!!

If you want to drink or whatever then drink till you cant drink no more .. but only drink what Guru sahib has given us drink the ambrosial nectar of naam and bani

thaa man kheevaa jaaneeai jaa mehalee paaeae thhaao 2
Only one who obtains a room in the Mansion of the Lord's Presence is deemed to be truly intoxicated.
sehajae prabh saevehi anadhin maathae

They serve God with intuitive ease. Night and day, they are intoxicated with His Love.

So become truly intoxicated

INTOXICATED WITH THE LOVE OF THE LORD
INTOXICATED WITH THE LOVE OF NAAM
INTOXICATED WITH THE LOVE OF GURBANI

Caste OFF!!!!

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh!!

There are a lot of people around who go around showing off their caste who go out bragging that I’m a “JATT” or THURKAN or what have you, and at the same time they call themshelves Sikhs!!!

Most people even no that the caste system has no place in Sikhism but still they brag about it why??

What is their to be proud off???
That jatts work in the farms picking up a cows waste in the field???
If your proud of that then carry on being proud but don’t call yourselves Sikhs!!

Guru Sahib has told us that man should not believe in caste because it leads to ego we start thinking were better than others etc

"Know people by the light illuminating them and do not ask their caste; for in the hereafter no one is differentiated by caste."

Mahraj tells us what use is caste ??? there is no use of it in this day and age. Daas was watching a documentary once about the friction between protestant and Catholics. They obviously felt that the to should get along but the also said that the arguments between catholics and protestants was nothing compared to the caste system in India!

They described it as rigid and pathetic!!! In which there are right.


aasaa mehalaa 1

Aasaa, First Mehla:


jae dhar maa(n)gath kook karae mehalee khasam sunae

If a beggar cries out at the door, the Master hears it in His Mansion.


bhaavai dhheerak bhaavai dhhakae eaek vaddaaee dhaee 1

Whether He receives him or pushes him away, it is the Gift of the Lord's Greatness. 1


jaanahu joth n pooshhahu jaathee aagai jaath n hae 1 rehaao

Recognize the Lord's Light within all, and do not consider social class or status; there are no classes or castes in the world hereafter. 1Pause



aap karaaeae aap karaee

He Himself acts, and He Himself inspires us to act.


aap oulaamhae chith dhharaee

He Himself considers our complaints.


jaa thoo(n) karanehaar karathaar

Since You, O Creator Lord, are the Doer,



kiaa muhathaajee kiaa sa(n)saar 2

why should I submit to the world? 2


aap oupaaeae aapae dhaee

You Yourself created and You Yourself give.


aapae dhuramath manehi karaee

You Yourself eliminate evil-mindedness;


gur parasaadh vasai man aae

by Guru's Grace, You come to abide in our minds,



dhukh anhaeraa vichahu jaae 3

and then, pain and darkness are dispelled from within. 3


saach piaaraa aap karaee

He Himself infuses love for the Truth.


avaree ko saach n dhaee

Unto others, the Truth is not bestowed.



jae kisai dhaee vakhaanai naanak aagai pooshh n laee 43

If He bestows it upon someone, says Nanak, then, in the world hereafter, that person is not called to account. 43

Mahraj says that one should not consider people's caste as God as created all.

Caste is for the ignorant amongst us who like to have a false sense of pride..

These people's lives are cursed because they are blinded to the truth of the Shabad they turn a blind eye to the teachnigs of the Gurus and will suffer in agony

I see its mostly jatts that think they are better than everyone and with their thinking they will suffer great pains from the messenger of death.. Death hovers over their head day and night.

Jatts claim to be so brave and warriors etc.. but people like K.S brar and K.P.S Gill who were involved in the mass murder and rape's off Sikhs in 1984 and onwards were jatts... Is that what jatts are??

Jatts these days are drunken who smoke, etc..who be falling all over the place coming bck from the pubs etc.. Yeh sumthing to be proud of isnt it???? NOT!!!

this is the reason why Panjab Is Suffering They Have Forgoten The Teachnigs Of The Gurus and will continue to suffer untill they WAKE UP!!

There is only 1 true caste and that is the caste of humanity.

Guru Gobind Singh has given us the names Singh & Kaur to get rid off the caste system but Sikhs today still use their surnames and are proud of caste..

The equality of all humans and no caste system is like the basic principle of Sikhism If you cant accept that how can u accept yourselves as being sikhs!!

Guru Sahib Ji Said

"Those That Put Themshelves Under A Caste & Ask Others Their Caste Are Not My Sikh Never Were And Never Will Be"

So People That belive in caste is the Hukam (Order) Of Guru Gobind Singh False????

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh!!

Daas will write more about this topic at a later date
