Dr. Basant Singh Ji

Wow what a jeevan !!!!read about him here . .... "dhan guru nanak , Dhan teri Sikhi "...wow what a role model...our ancestors have left no dearth of role models ...it is we who are not able to match up on any scale.

Gur Gur Gur ...in the Middle East

Just to share experiences from Dubai :

Singhan nu guru sahib ne chardiyan kalan bakshiyaan ne , there are Some Gurdwaras in the UAE. (No nishan sahibs but.) The "chemical formula" that guru sahib has used to make sikhi is one which generates real love for sikhi under these circumstances.

Since I have come here I have had the privilege of getting the darshan many chardiyan kalan naam abhiyasi gursikhs , some of whom had landed in the UAE as clean shaven "heros" from Punjab .

One gursikh here drives his own trailer truck, and has kept a harmonium in the truck itself ... so that he can quench his thirst wherever required!

This weekend (Thursday night ) there was Amrit Sanchar at one of the hidden gurdwaras ... the scene was beautiful... all the would be singhs were ready with their kakars ...all the amrit abhilakhi bibis had dastars adorning them (and this was not AKJ !)... as the area around guru sahib was covered by a sheet and preparations were being made for the sanchar ... the abhilakhsi were sitting on the outside and the sangat started dong keertan ..." ਗੁਰਿ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤੁ ਹਰਿ ਮੁਖਿ ਚੋਇਆ ਮੇਰੀ ਜਿੰਦੁੜੀਏ ਫਿਰਿ ਮਰਦਾ ਬਹੁੜਿ ਜੀਵਾਇਆ ਰਾਮ gur amrit har mukh cho-i-aa mayree jindurhee-ay fir mardaa bahurh jeevaa-i-aa raam. "... after about an hour and half of keertan at about 10 pm the hukam came from "the panj" for all the abhilakhis (around 50 in no. ie. 50 x 12500 !) to enter and the keertan to stop.

After preparing the bata at aront 11pm in the night loud sounds of Vahe Guru VAhe Guru Vahe Guru ...started coming from inside the closed area ... the khanda of naam was being pumped into the abhilakhis... the sangat outside the enclosure also made full use of the time by joining in the Vahe Gurrrrr vahe gurrrrrrr.....naam abhiyaas continued in full volume bir rasss till 2:30 am in the morning. (this is one event which I will allways be residing in my heart) . After that the reahit maryada was told , hukamnama was taken and daeg was distributed. ( I was caught recording the maryada audio by the Pehiradr Singh ! so had to stop it !).

We also had the blessing of doing the darshan of the beautiful souls coming out just after the sanchar at around 3:30am.This was followed by langar and jalabies!

Ardas karo may Guru Granth Sahib ji continue to keep his blessing on these oasis of naam in middle of these barren deserts of sand and concrete.

Tera ek naam taarey sansaar.

Really Mind-blowing , crisp & crystal clear katha and Gurmat veechar by Gurbachan singh ji Thailand wale . (1hour & 40 min ) ( He is in Dubai for the next weekend also , so most probably we will have more hours of invaluable veechar soon !)

Here is the Shabad he is discussing :

ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ਘਰੁ ੪ ॥ sireeraag mehlaa 1 ghar 4.
ਏਕੁ ਸੁਆਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਸੁਆਨੀ ਨਾਲਿ ॥ ayk su-aan du-ay su-aanee naal.
ਭਲਕੇ ਭਉਕਹਿ ਸਦਾ ਬਇਆਲਿ ॥ bhalkay bha-ukahi sadaa ba-i-aal.
ਕੂੜੁ ਛੁਰਾ ਮੁਠਾ ਮੁਰਦਾਰੁ ॥ koorh chhuraa muthaa murdaar.
ਧਾਣਕ ਰੂਪਿ ਰਹਾ ਕਰਤਾਰ ॥੧॥ Dhaanak roop rahaa kartaar. ||1||
ਮੈ ਪਤਿ ਕੀ ਪੰਦਿ ਨ ਕਰਣੀ ਕੀ ਕਾਰ ॥ mai pat kee pand na karnee kee kaar.
ਹਉ ਬਿਗੜੈ ਰੂਪਿ ਰਹਾ ਬਿਕਰਾਲ ॥ ha-o bigrhai roop rahaa bikraal.
ਤੇਰਾ ਏਕੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਤਾਰੇ ਸੰਸਾਰੁ ॥ tayraa ayk naam taaray sansaar.
ਮੈ ਏਹਾ ਆਸ ਏਹੋ ਆਧਾਰੁ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ mai ayhaa aas ayho aaDhaar. ||1|| rahaa-o.
ਮੁਖਿ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਆਖਾ ਦਿਨੁ ਰਾਤਿ ॥ mukh nindaa aakhaa din raat.
ਪਰ ਘਰੁ ਜੋਹੀ ਨੀਚ ਸਨਾਤਿ ॥ par ghar johee neech sanaat.
ਕਾਮੁ ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਤਨਿ ਵਸਹਿ ਚੰਡਾਲ ॥ kaam kroDh tan vaseh chandaal.
ਧਾਣਕ ਰੂਪਿ ਰਹਾ ਕਰਤਾਰ ॥੨॥ Dhaanak roop rahaa kartaar. ||2||
ਫਾਹੀ ਸੁਰਤਿ ਮਲੂਕੀ ਵੇਸੁ ॥ faahee surat malookee vays.
ਹਉ ਠਗਵਾੜਾ ਠਗੀ ਦੇਸੁ ॥ ha-o thagvaarhaa thagee days.
ਖਰਾ ਸਿਆਣਾ ਬਹੁਤਾ ਭਾਰੁ ॥ kharaa si-aanaa bahutaa bhaar.
ਧਾਣਕ ਰੂਪਿ ਰਹਾ ਕਰਤਾਰ ॥੩॥ Dhaanak roop rahaa kartaar. ||3||
ਮੈ ਕੀਤਾ ਨ ਜਾਤਾ ਹਰਾਮਖੋਰੁ ॥ mai keetaa na jaataa haraamkhor.
ਹਉ ਕਿਆ ਮੁਹੁ ਦੇਸਾ ਦੁਸਟੁ ਚੋਰੁ ॥ ha-o ki-aa muhu daysaa dusat chor.
ਨਾਨਕੁ ਨੀਚੁ ਕਹੈ ਬੀਚਾਰੁ ॥ naanak neech kahai beechaar.
ਧਾਣਕ ਰੂਪਿ ਰਹਾ ਕਰਤਾਰ ॥੪॥੨੯॥ Dhaanak roop rahaa kartaar. ||4||29||

See beauty of gurbani and its parallel existence in diffrent levels of meaning (one can be seen in the link above) and the other:

One GURsikh (Gurmukh Singh - for those who know him ) had once told me that it is : GUR , GURmantar , GURbani , GURmat, GURdwara , GURsikh
The GUR (the special method) was given to Guru Nanak By AKAL PURAKH ( he himself was the sakar roop of the AKAL )
Guru Nanak gave us that in the form of the GURmantar …. It was this GUR that Guru nanak wanted to spread so he took the 4 Udasis.
Hence GURmat is every thought based on that GUR .
GURbani is the bani emanatig from that GUR and resounding with that GUR.

GURdwara is the door/house of that GUR.

GURsikh is one who is learning to follow that GUR.

That is why we also have the ardas which says first rembering Bhagauti Nanak contemplated the GUR … That GUR was sahai to Angad , Amardas and Ramdas … Arajan , Hargobind & harrai did simran of the GUR … Sri Harkrishan who is the cure of all pains is the did dhyan of the gur , Taeg Bahadur’s simran of the GUr brought all 9 nidhis … ( hre is where Guru Gobind singhs bani ends and panthic ardas begins )

bhul chuk maaf...

Branding others for own incompetence

Wrote a stupid poem , but somehow it makes sense

Paundeyaan sharam aandi hai bana
Ji Oh taan nihangan ne hai pana

Pehenji nu sharam aaundi hai dastar sajaunde
Ji Oh taan jathe wale ne paunde

Ninem vadha karan di nahi preet
Ih taan taksaliyaan di hai reet

Fir assi ki haan
Ooh ji aasi taan asli sikh haan !!!!

Bhai Sahib Bhai Niranjan Singh ji at Dubai !
