WADAHANS, FOURTH MEHL:
Without the Guru, I am  without the Guru, I am totally dishonored. The Life of the world, the Life of the world, the Great Giver has led me to meet and merge with the Guru. Meeting the True Guru, I have merged into the Naam, the Name of the Lord. I chant the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, and meditate on it. I was seeking and searching for Him, for the Lord, my best friend; I found Him within the home of my own being. I see the One Lord, and I know the One Lord; I realize the Lord within my soul. Without the Guru, I am  without the Guru, I am totally dishonored. 1 Those who have found the True Guru, the True Guru  the Lord God unites them in His Union. Their feet, their feet, I adore; I fall at their feet. O Lord, Har, Har, I adore the feet of those who meditate on the True Guru, and the Almighty Lord God. You are the Great Giver, the Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts; please, reward my faith, O Lord King. Meeting the Gursikhs, my faith is rewarded; night and day, I sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. Those who have found the True Guru, the True Guru  the Lord God unites them in His Union. 2 I am a sacrifice, I am a sacrifice to the Gursikhs, my dear friends. They chant the Lords Name, the Lords Name; the Beloved Naam, the Name of the Lord, is my only Support. The Name of the Lord, Har, Har, is the companion of my breath of life; without it, I cannot live for an instant or a moment. The Lord, Har, Har, the Giver of peace, grants His Grace, and the Gurmukhs drink in the Ambrosial Nectar. The Lord blesses them with faith, and unites them in His Union; the Lord Himself adorns them. I am a sacrifice, I am a sacrifice to the Gursikhs, my dear friends. 3 The Lord Himself, the Lord Himself  He is the Immaculate Almighty Lord God. The Lord Himself, the Lord Himself, unites us with Himself; that which He does, comes to pass. Whatever is pleasing to the Lord God, that alone comes to pass; nothing else can be done. Even by all sorts of clever tricks, He cannot be obtained; all have grown weary of practicing cleverness. By Gurus Grace, servant Nanak beholds Him; without the Lord, I have no other at all. The Lord Himself, the Lord Himself  He is the Immaculate Almighty Lord God. 4 2

Arpinder Kaur a Sikh Woman: First Turbaned Pilot In America

The Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) reported that Arpinder Kaur, 28, of San Antonio, Texas has become the first turbaned pilot hired by a commercial airline in the Unitedimage002.jpg States. As a Sikhni, she has helped pave the way for both Sikh men and women who wear a dastaar/turban to fulfill their passion for flying. No longer does flying just have to be an extra-curricular activity for these Sikhs, but it can also be an every-day job!

In March 2008, after resolving the issue of wearing her dastaar on-the-job, with the help of the Sikh Coalition, Arpinder Kaur was officially hired by American Airlines Corporation (AMR) as a First Officer. She filed her grievance for accommodation of her religious article of faith based on American Airlines’ allowance of “regulation approved hats”. An agreement was reached that is consistent with state and federal anti-discrimination law. In June 2008 she finished her pilot training program and is now flying Embraer Jets for American Eagle, a regional airline that is part of AMR based out of the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

Rahul Gandhi’s recent excursions in Punjab

front_1.jpg

There has been unprecedented levels of media coverage in India and across the globe regarding Rahul Gandhi’s recent excursions in Punjab. The hopeful future Prime Minister was quick to extend his supposed ‘regret’ saying the ‘anti-Sikh riots were wrong’.

Before any person in India or abroad automatically guarantees him their unequivocal support, one has to look at the context in which this has taken place. We are nearing the end of Manmohan Singh’s term as Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi has become a virtual recluse, So Rahul is out canvassing support from every corner of the country and seeking to silence anybody who dares speak out.

Was his description of the ‘riots’ not inaccurate? There were no ‘riots’ it was not merely random violence between groups of people; it was a pogrom: an organized massacre.of innocent people from a single minority community. Read More…

ROANOKE RAPIDS, N.C. — A Halifax County man was turned away from a local mission when he refused to remove his turban while trying to make a donation.

When Gary Khera, went with his wife to the Union Mission on Roanoke Avenue to make a donation, a staffer asked him to remove his turban.

“She said, ‘Sir, you have to take your turban off. This is the United States,'” Khera recounted. “That made me a little upset. I am a United States citizen.”

Khera, citing his religious beliefs, declined. He is a Sikh with dual U.S. and Indian citizenship. Followers of Sikhism do not cut their hair, and men commonly wear long beards and turbans. Read More…

Tragic death of Sikh Policeman

Kulwinder002.jpg

Its is a very sad, but honoured privilege to share with you a few of the many reasons why Kulwinder was so widely regarded amongst his friends and colleagues in the City of London Police.

Kulwinder Sandhu joined the City of London Police on the 4th November 2002. We were very privileged that Kulwinder approached the City of London as his chosen Force.

Being a graduate of business, finance and accountancy, and with ambitions to become a fraud investigator- the City of London was his natural choice.

Kulwinder was the first Sikh Police officer in the 179-year history of the Force. He graciously became the face of the City of London Police and appeared on many many publications, magazines and posters about the service. Read More…

The Birthday of Guru Nanak Sahib is celebrated on  15th Kartik Puranmashi i.e. full moon day of the month Kartik. On this day the Birthday of Guru Nanak Sahib is celebrated every year. (But some other chronicals state that Guru Nanak Sahib was born on 20th October,1469) Guru Nanak’s father, Mehta Kalyan Das, more popularly known as Mehta Kalu was the agent and Chief Accountant of Rai Bular. Guru Nanak ‘s mother was Mata Tripta, a simple, pious and extremely religious woman. Nanak had an elder sister, Nanki, who always cherished her younger brother.

Nanak was an extra-ordinary and different child in many ways. God provided him with contemplative mind and rational thinking. At the age of seven, he learnt Hindi and Sanskrit. He surprised his teachers with the sublimity of his extra-ordinary knowledge about divine things. At the age of thirteen, he learned Persian and Sanskrit and at the age of 16, he was the most learned young man in the region. He was married to Mata Sulakhni ji, who gave birth to two sons: Sri Chand and Lakhmi Das. In November 1504, Guru Nanak’s elder sister Nanaki ji took him to Sultanpurlodhi where her husband Jai Ram ji got him the Job of storekeeper in the Modikhana of the local Nawab, Daulat Khan Lodhi.

kara case

UK: Sarika Watkins-Singh, 14, took Aberdare Girls’ School, in south Wales, to the High Court after she was excluded for wearing the Kara – a bracelet worn by many Sikhs as a symbol of faith.

But despite winning the case the teenager will not return for the start of the new term following the courtroom battle.

She said: “I don’t want to go back to Aberdare Girls’ School because after everything that has happened it won’t be the same as it was before everything kicked off.

“I did want to go back but since I’ve seen the teacher’s statements and heard what the school had to say during the court case I’ve changed my mind. I’ve weighed the pros and cons and decided not to go back.” Read More…

Abdali Defeated by The Sikhs supported by historical evidence

 

abdali.jpg

Modern day historians accuse Sikhs of being biased and writing false historic events when it comes to battles with Abdali. They say that Abdali destroyed Marathas who had three times more troops than him (Abdali) and his blow to the enemy was so great that Marathas could never successfully regroup and organize their army and this Abdali could not have been afraid of the Sikhs let alone suffering defeat. The following sources written by non-Sikhs prove beyond the doubt that Abdali not only lost but was afraid of the Sikhs.

According to the News Reports from Delhi 1759-65

As for the facts regarding Shah Abdali, after the great battle and the defeat suffered by him there at the hands of the Sikhs, the Shah reached the river Jhelum, and his troops fled hither and thither in disorder. However much the Shah took off his turban and exhorted his army commanders to show firmness and stand up to the enemy, no one listened to him, and troop after troop crossed the river Jhelum, and fled pell-mell, like an army without defense or transport. Traveling thirty kurohs in one day and night, out of the terror of the Sikhs, they reached Hasan Abdal. There only did they give a breathing time to themselves. All fled, one by one. In this kind of flight, the bazaar of the camp and Shah’s baggage was put to sack. One man’s turban went to someone else.

Becoming Hari Nam Singh Khalsa

“I was a hippie” Hari Nam Singh Khalsa says. “A peace-love-groovy kind of guy.”

The host of the television program “Insight into Sikhism” is explaining how he came to be baptized in the faith.

Khalsa, who lives in Oakville Ontario, is being interviewed at the Gurdwara Dukh Niwaran Sahib at 15255 68 Ave.

He was invited to attend the Surrey temple’s celebration of the 300th anniversary of the day when Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the 10th guru of the Sikh faith, told his followers that there was no need for an 11th person to guide them.

Instead of putting their trust in a single person, Sikhs were told to look to the written scriptures for guidance.

Khalsa has been doing exactly that for decades. Read More…

Sikh Constable fulfils his late father’s dream

sikh-turban

New Zealand: On the beat in Nelson Thursday night, a proud Constable Jagmohan Malhi fulfilled his late father’s dreams and became the first New Zealand police officer to wear a turban on duty.

Mr Malhi, a Sikh police officer who has worked in Nelson for nearly three years, said the Sikh faith required men and women not to cut their hair, and to wear a turban.

Although he had grown up wearing a turban, Mr Malhi said he shaved off his beard and moustache “because of peer pressure” when he moved to Nelson eight years ago.

Then, when he graduated from police training college three years ago, he also shaved his head.

Mr Malhi said his father had wanted him to grow his hair again, but he was unsure then whether any police protocol existed in relation to wearing a turban. When his father died last year, he decided to fulfill his wishes and began researching what other policies were in place for police around the world. Read More…
