doubt with the advancement in science the majority of the religions
of the world, which were mostly based upon blind faiths, rituals and
false tradition are seems to be eliminating from the scene. Some others
are modifying there dead and baseless theories with new clarifications
and definitions, as per the need of the time, toward their survival.
A few others are advancing towards gripping their principals and traditions
more rigidity, rather those do not go expire with the developments.
But contrary to this all, Sikhism i.e. the doctrine of Gurbani is
becoming more & more sublime and being glorified as a day light.
is again ridicules to blame the advancement within the western culture
or the T.V and the latest technology. This is a fundamental truth
that.....Only the tasteless item can be replaced by some tasteful
or powerful item.....and If in fact..... The taste of Gurbani Living
is properly provided within one's worldly routine requirements ....
none of the taste of the world can overpower or capture it. Similarly
none of the ideology of the universe can prove itself more powerful
as compared to Gurbani way of life........ But even then, we are lingering
behind and lacking every where, why?....... Similarly the T.V and
speedy innovation in the field of technology..... has made much easy
for us to get acquainted & identify ourselves, with the concrete
Sikh Life rather we may get bore or go astray.
It is again utterly and
inaccurate judgment if we say that......... the preaching and the
resources being applied upon the preaching of 'Sikhism' are acute
or too less........ These days.......... so
many websites are engaged for the purpose...... T.V Channels have
been occupied.........Day & night,
Semi Radio Stations are busy all over the world......innumerable
Ragi-Dhadi Jathas & Kathawachaks recite & illustrate upon Sikhism
, which can be seen all the times on flights to the same cause .........
billions of Akhand Paths and Sehaj Paths are being preformed, all
the times.........Singh Sabhas and Gurduara Management Committees
are countless.........innumerable Gurduaras have already been constructed,
all over the world in each nook and corner........The number of splended
Gurduaras is still increasing every day........ In addition to all
of these the so called 'Kirtan Darbars' and Kirtan in larees (Series)
is non stop.
of all of this......... The Shabad Chowki Jathas, Sevak Jathas, Societies
& Organisations of Sikh Young men are unlimited, along with non-stop
preaching & their own type of work upon Sikhism.......The 'Istri
Sat Sangh Sabhas' are again in-estimate-able number........ None of
the time can be spared when a person can say that the preaching process
of Sikhism is not going on. Near about each and every Sikh person,
attached to this process is engaged from multi sides and you will
find them engaged in the preaching or 'sewa' of Sikhism.
Hence, it will prove ridiculous
to say and absolutely not justified to quote that the preaching Section
of Sikhism is acute, smaller or weak. Contrary to it, If sometimes,
with the Grace of the Lord, we may get awaken..........We shall find
that perceptibly we are not preaching Sikhism .......But all the more
we are distorting Sikhism all the time and with all of our said activities.
In reality we are preaching adulterated History
& infiltrated Sikh way of life, mouth eaten stories, extremely
falsehood, logic less customs,
Anti Sikh traditions. rituals, whims and all
above, absolutely the Brahmanism
Thus whatsoever we are supplying under the garb of Sikhism......
is not a Sikhism at all. Consequently as a result, we are losing everything
in each and every field of life pertaining to Sikhism.
to blame others, we ourselves are much more responsible for the present
day deterioration within the Sikhism. If we are really honest
the crisis within Sikhism, we ought to be conscious and realistic
How can we Achieve
our Motto and finish this deterioration for ever?
Some long term
programs & Projects are required to be launched to face the present
critic situation. The Sikhism should ever shower in well Identified
form. This all must go on most honestly, carefully & strictly
based upon Gurbani Sikhaya with the spirit of dedication towards the
Great Guru-Guru Granth Sahib ji. Our Preacher must be well learned,
qualified, experienced. He or She should be of sweet and catchy behavior.
He or She should also have the high personality and good living standard
along with crystal clear guidelines from Gurbani within his or her
routine of life.
A few humble
suggestions in the form of 'PUNJ NUKATI PROGRAM'
(five point program) are being underlined. We are sure that
if these come in routine & practice to the earliest, A systematic
era within the Preaching of Sikhism will start for ever. We will certainly
get rid of the day to day deterioration & distortion within our
community. Even as a result the whole of humanity will enjoy the sigh
Humble Suggestion- the
'PUNJ NUKATI PROGRAM'
prepare Extra summarized topics in the form of 'Gurmat Lessons'
Solely based upon Gurbani Sikhaya (Teachings) without standing
physically or intellectually in between.
very soft, attractive, catchy & pretty language without hurting,
blaming any body or any organization but strictly by highlighting
most honestly the Gurbani doctrine in its crystal clear form. Also
keeping in view the psyche of the readers. Above all generating
the consciousness among the masses about infiltration, defilement,
adulteration rising day to day within the community.
doubts & questions gets arisen or got created time to time. May
be due to ignorance or due to outer intervention from the anti powers,
who do not want to see the advancement & flourishing of Sikhism.
Either they do it for their mean selfish motives or due to some
said Gurmat Lessons should purely be based upon Gurbani Terminology
& Principals with a strict check up upon adulteration...... though
the said adulteration got entered intentionally or un-intentionally,
within the Sikh history, Gurbani explanations or preachings of Sikhism.
make sure that the Gurmat lessons must reach, within each & every
family attached with Guru Ki Sangat...... at international level,
free of cost and even without demand from their side. Moreover with
a priority in Gurmukhi script, and then in each and every language
of the world to the limit it is possible.
Make sure that the said Gurmat lessons must reach
periodically, systematically ...... generation after generation
& got flown freely within the Sikh Congregations, to make available
cooperation of the Sikh thinkers, sympathizers, supporters must
be got availed physically, financially and by all means without
partiality for this long term project.
The work upon this
project is already in progress by GEC, Delhi (India). Near 100 Gurmat
Lessons are always in routine but the target is to prepare 400 Lessons.
The multi type cooperation from 'Guru Ki Sangat' is requested from
all over the world.
Time Promotional Gurmat Classes..
Part time Gurmat Classes ?
is essential for each & every body upon this earth. This Divine Knowledge
is the ultimate obligation to get balance our worldly life with our
spiritual life & make our life sublime. The human errors and the
reasoning within human miseries can only be puffed up and got cured,
under the light house of Gurbani. Even a person who belongs to 'Guru
Ki Sangat' and dedicated to Gurbani, can never enjoy the reality of
life without 'Living within Gurbani Sikhaya'.
To benefit the fragrance of High, Truthful and Peaceful living, a
person has to follow the principals of Gurbani. Without it's study,
the do's & don'ts out of our human life are not even smoothly accessible.
Classes' are must for a person though he or she is a Serviceman, Businessman,
Shopkeeper, Factory holder, Defense Personal, Agriculturist, Industrialist,
Engineer, Doctor, Scientist, Student, Administrator & even a Sikh
Preacher or whatsoever. The living within the Gurbani Teachings is
a necessity for ever body. For this reason, only the part time promotional
Gurbani-Gurmat classes can suffice the purpose.
the Prevailing and 'Promotional Gurmat Classes':
'Part time-Promotional Gurmat Classes'
are entirely different from the 'Gurmat
Classes' prevailing these days all over the world.
Basically those prevailing
Classes, can be termed as
and not Gurmat Classes'.
Above all these
'Mini Satsangs' have
their own significance
which can never be refused, ignored or over crossed.
Even then the need of the 'Part
time-Promotional Gurmat Classes' is
Educational Class' should stand for
an educational assemblage in which always
there is a change & progress in a particular session after
session based upon promotional system... likewise equally
on the lines of the same system
which we see daily within colleges and schools. At least, an Educational
Class should never remain as a standing water within a pond..............
throughout the years to come, with the same assemblage.
This is but, what is going on, in the case of existing 'Gurmat
Educational Classes' basically the 'Mini Satsangs'. 'Gurmat
Educational Classes' are required
to equivalent to the procedure of the water in
a river where the existing running
water always departs and the subsequent water takes its place and
the process goes on.
TO EXECUTE SUCH CLASSES.....
This step is a
necessity for each and every person attached with 'Guru Ki Sangat'.
The preliminary Gurmat awareness & practice of Gurbani living, within
one's life is the basic truth for every body concerned. Consequently
each and every person from each and every field of life either male
or female should be eligible to join these 'Part time Gurmat classes'.
The classes are required to be started in each & every corner of
the world, where so ever these are possible.
These 'Promotional Part time
Gurmat Classes' can be established, with the mutual cooperation
of Guru Ki Sangat & well Educated Scholarly Persons. The classes
must be with their specified courses, tenure & specified period
system. The classes should be carried on once or twice a week and
not daily. Moreover each sitting should not exceed the maximum
limit of two hours. Courses should be very simple, preliminary type
and very short timed. These courses should start from one month's
refresher course, then quarterly, half yearly and maximum up to
the limit of one year course and not above. The Classes are must
to be taken by the trained & educated, Gurmat staff.
The professors and the staff
is required to be properly well paid. Despite the fact, somebody
may offer the honorary services. The major condition on the part
of the professors and staff is, that they should be with a dedicated
spirit and dipped in well identified Gurmat Living, strictly based
upon Gurbani Sikhaya. The staff or the professors belonging to some
Dehras or else where else will not suit; rather they can damage
the whole program. Expenses of the classes might to be roofed partly
from the students and partly from donors at their own will but not
Building or class premises may
also be affixed if offered from some School, College, Gurduara,
Guru Ki Sangat. Otherwise these can be arranged at rentals basis.
This way, at least we will be in a position to face & tackle the
widespread tragedy of the day i.e. a big void which is been further
widened swiftly, between one's life and Gurbani Sikhaya (teachings).
This project is also not a time bound project but a long term program
to carry on for the generations to come
Vichar Smagams & Gurmat Educational Sessions ......
so ever the Gurduara management cooperates the suggested Gurmat
Sessions are also advisable to manage within Gurduaras, and that
stands for there own utility. Secondly, obtain & engage the
suitable halls or auditoriums for the purpose of such Sessions &
Seminars, at rental basis. Above all beyond the Gurduara premises
this project is more helpful to reach the non Sikh masses and get
them acquainted with the Gurbani Teachings.
the Learned Gurmat Scholars, having academic qualifications also
dedicated and involved in Gurmat life srictly based upon Gurbani
full propaganda for the congregation, educate the audience having
one after one the Gurbani Principals pertaining to human life. But
this all is to be done with a much appealing simple & sweet language.
The education of the audience must be done with logic and instructive
manners conecting the Gurbani doctrine with our daily life. Because
Gurbani is a Living Treasure for human being.
doubt this project
is also a project
of permanent need within the
community for the generations to come but again this is also a need
of the time to face the present situation of deterioration.
& Punjabi Education at Nursery level of our Kids........
Today 'Guru Ki
Sangat' is prevailed all over the world. Therefore In each and every
area of the world the system of preliminary Punjabi & Gurmat
Education is a necessity within the children of the community. This
work is also can be done by the appointment of good personality,
well educated, sweet talk, Gurmat practicing, well paid Gurbani
Scholars. Better it is if the Gurduara Management cooperates, otherwise
at rented or offered premises. Classes should be taken once or twice
a week & not more. Teaching within the classes shoul neither bulky
nor boring or tiresome. Time period of the class should be with
the mutual adjustment & facility but none class should cross the
maximum limit of two hours. Tenure of the class must be affixed
maximum five to six months and not above. Courses should strictly
be very much interesting, charming & pertaining to the life routine
of the children. Above all, necessarily attached with Gurbani way
life and filled up with supporting examples from scrutinized Sikh
is again a project of permanent eminence for generations to come but
delay is not appreciable. The Nursery of Gurbani concerned kids, should
essentially be initiated with Guramt & Punjabi education combined.....
at any part of the world and at community level. The project will
also routinely & automatically assist in solving the present dilemma
of un-employment within 'Guru Ki Sangat'
Back up to
the Project-Till the time of Gurduara election
system did not came on the scene, mostly the 'Granthies' within Gurduaras
had to depend upon the locality mostly by the way called 'Handa' Moreover
those people though not learned much but they had anxiety, dedication
& zeal to impart the knowledge of Gurmukhi along with initial
introduction of Sikhism. Though it not being the preliminary knowledge
of Gurmat, even then it was much valid.
after the 'Election System' over powered the Gurduaras, the 'Granthies'
turned paid with their specified duties. As a result even the 'initial
education of Gurmukhi along with initial introduction of Sikhism'
all along came to stand still. This all resulted in, that within a
short period of about 50 to 70 yrs even the grand parents within our
families do not understand the writing and reading of Punjabi. As
a result, today even the 'initial introduction about Sikhism' has
become the past time story within so many Sikh families. The issue
has properly been discussed within the Gurmat Lesson No 30 entitled
with 'Paraahi Punjabi Di' available from
GEC Delhi, just at about printing cost for the purpose of self study
& further distribution within 'Guru Ki Sangat' toward 'Gurmat
Parsaar'. But in nut shell it is to stress upon that at an initial
stage the education of Gurmukhi along with initial Gurmat Education
is inevitable for each and every kid attached to 'Guru Ki Sangat'
Quiz among Children......
Requirements for the Quiz:
the project, the concerned Gurmat Literature is ought to be prepared.
The proposed Gurmat Literature for Quiz purpose will be needed,
within three sets of Books. (1) It should strictly be based upon
Identified and clarified Gurbani Sikhaya in the form of Gurbani
Quotations.(2) Filtered & scrutinized Sikh History.(3) Current
affairs pertaining to Sikh
way of life cum Current Sikh General Knowledge.
Out of these
three sets of books, we need to impart further the clarification
about the issue of Gurbani Quotations . Such quotations are required
to be prepared in collections, based upon different principals of
Gurbani. For example: Issue of Universal Father hood, issue of Universal
Brother hood, cast and creed system, issue of human life, issue
of intoxication, issue of pilgrimages & unwanted baths, issue
of Self mortification or Self austerities (tup sadhne) and so on
but all separately.
Again this collection
based division of Gurbani Quotations, is further to be divided
within three age and education groups. Moreover the quotations are
to be provided along with summarized and extreme short meanings
within the books prepared. This meaning process is simply needed
for the self knowledge of the students and not at their Quiz time.
Now within the
groups of competition when one student from one badge will quote
any Gurbani Quotation the other part of the same group will pro
the same principal of Gurbani with some other Quotation and so the
proceeding will go on.
of the Quiz
organizations should come out Of the community and engage some learned
educated scholars of Gurmat. Essentially those professors ought
to be filled up with Gurbani living within their routine of life.
They should also be in good personality with sweet behavior and
logical conversational gift.
Sikh Schools...... organize over there the Quiz...... each Quiz
performance has to be done within three
steps based upon Gurbani, Sikh
History & Current affairs of Sikh life. Further the Quiz is
also desirable to be held within three phases, as per the age and
educational group of the students.
Take out Gurbani Quotations based upon instructions & guide lines
to different principals of life keeping in view the age group and
education level of the children concerned.
Upon Sikh History right from 1469 till
date, with objective type quarries.
The third part of the quiz should be purely based upon day to day
doubts & confusions created by the ignorant or by the anti Sikh
powers to harm the Sikh Generation.
of Quiz is a necessity within the community having its dictum to
wash away those doubts and confusions but very politely and without
hurting or naming any section of the society.
In all the three
phases, each group has to be divided at least into two parts or
more for contrast & competition purpose as it is being done
within most of the quiz programs. After performance the participant
students, which supersede, must to be awarded good incentives, along
with encouragement at least at the level of 'Guru Ki Sangat'.
is also an infinite time project for the generations to come. Like
other suggested projects, it is obligatory to start with, quite urgently.
this is a need of the time to enlighten our kids from their very early
age. Moreover the Sikh Preaching organizations are requested to come
out with the preparation & printings of all the three types of
books as suggested, at the earliest. Delay can harm us much more but
once our Kids are clear to their Gurbani Living, then no power on
the earth can ever damage or shake them.
