Kanwaljit Singh ji

A great question ! Rehras (as part of the evening Nit Nem) does not change in large part because most of it comes from Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The entire prayer was written by 4 of our Gurus, who lived before Guru Gobind Singh. Then, Chaupai Sahib is one additional part, believed by some to be penned by Guru Gobind Singh. The prayer is a composed then of bani that most adherents of Guru Granth Sahib would adhere to.

Re: Chaupai Sahib in Rehras Sahib

And furthermore you need not worry or be confused becasue the Nitnem on the Fisrt 13 pages of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji was REAFFIRMED EXACTLY by GURU GOBIND SINGH JI as it was written ORIGINALLY by Guru Arjun ji Sahib. The Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji was REAFFIRMED in the Yera 1705...LONG AFTER the Vasakhi of 1699 when Khalsa was Revealed....and YET Guru Gobind Singh Ji DID NOT SEE IT or DEEM IT NECESSARY to make any CHANGES whatsoever to the Original NITNEM and titles of the shabads as in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

2. Second point of interest is:...The First 13 pages of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Contain various Shabdas from various Raags..and these CLEARLY CHOSEN Shabads are also REPEATED..when their particular Raag is written. ( This means ALL the shabads are in 2 places....FIRST under the Nitnem pages 1-13....and THEN once more in their OWN respective Raags.)
What this means is that Guru Sahib PICKED OUT these special shabds from the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and placed them together in the Beginning 13 pages of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and put them under the titles of Jap....Sodar Rehrass and Sohila. So theres a PURPOSE behind this segregation..and its NOT random..BUT being placed at the very BEGINNING of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is a clear indication of their Vast IMPORTANCE...Confirmed by Guru Arjun ji and Guru gobind Singh ji.....even after 1699 !!!.

3. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is a authentic as we can get...nothing more authentic than our GURU JI.
However NOT A SINGLE ORIGINAL WRITTEN SOURCE/Hukmanmah/REHATNAMAH agrees on the Banis read/how ceremony was carried out/what happened/who did what at Vasakhi 1699. What is abundantly CLEAR is that Every Single document of 1699 onwards is heavily ADULTERATED/CHANGED/ALTERED to reflect the authors own personal prejudices/thinking. So much so that one writes that the WATER came form AMRITSAR SAROVAR ( and was thus already amrit !!)....others say the water came from the nearby SATLUJ !! Some say GGS used One sided Khanda, others double sided khanda, yet others knife !! One says DIWAN CHAND SAHIB put the Patashas in the "Pahul" ( to make it sweet enough to drink..implying that "Pahul/Amrit" is essentailly TASTELESS ?? This essentially CONTRADICTS GURBANI which describes AMRIT as INTRINSICALLY SWEET as NECTAR/HONEY etc ?? Others say it was Mata JITO..who put the patashas..others say it was Mata SAHIB Kaur !! BUT ALL agree that WITHOUT the Patashas to sweeten it..the amrit would ahve been tasteless !! This is Contradictory to Gurbani. The 1945 SRM was an OBVIOUS COMPROMISE...only TIME will tell whether it can stand the test..BUT FOR NOW..its my passionate pleas as is also the plea by Prof Prof Darshan Singh Ji Khalsa to NOT THROW OUT THE BABY WITH THE BATHWATER !! ALL thsoe making the LOUDEST nosies about "defendign the SRM" have NOT Followed it at all..not the Taksals, not the AKJ, not the DERAS, Not the nanaksarihthaaths...ALL OF THEM have had their own Individual dera/jathedbandi maryadas vastly DIFFERENT form the SRM...But NOW that they have discovered that the SRM is under siege in its HOMEGROUND - Takhats and SGPC Gurdwaras (due to presence of taksalis, Nanksarihs, and akj trained granthis jathedars in power)...its advantageous to CRY WOLF..whenever Forward thinking Sikhs even think of changing any parts of SRM that are obviously WRONG/In Conflict with Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji - like on Raagmala, Manglacharans position/Nitnem banis outside Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji etc etc.. They WANT the Stataus Quo to remain for so long as the crippled SRM is in place..their own Maryadas can carry on !!!

Re: Chaupai Sahib in Rehras Sahib

Forgive me Gyani ji if I am being a wet rag by asking this question. But is it important to note that the Rehiras on Angs 8 through 12 in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is distinct from the Rehras that does include Benti Chaupai/Chaupai Sahib, the evening Nit Nem? I lost my focus a little when reading your last reply. It may not be important.

Re: Chaupai Sahib in Rehras Sahib

Why do forward thinking Sikhs who question the validity / logic / reason behind parts of the SRM still follow those parts and insist others follow them while decrying the contents?
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/questions-and-answers/35309-chaupai-sahib-in-rehras-sahib.html

That is very confusing to me. On one hand someone says "follow the SRM, it's all we have" and on the other they say "it's crap".

Why would anyone want to be (officially) amritdhari knowing the state of things?

Re: Chaupai Sahib in Rehras Sahib

What I have written above is a statement of fact. Guru Gobind Singh Ji in 1705....MORE than 6 years AFTER Vasakhi 1699 ( when the "Amrit banis" of Nitnem are supposed to be read)..
DID NOT SEE FIT to add these to the ORIGINAL NITNEM inside OUR GURU - Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji on Pannas 1-13. These still contain the Jap, Sodar, So Purakh and Sohila.
Now the question is: IS the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji our GURU ?? IF SO..is our GURU INADEQUATE in providing us the NITNEM ? 2. Secondly Do we have Full Faith in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji that it is the COMPLETE GURU ? If so then does it provide us the COMPLETE NITNEM ?. SAMPOORAN GURU ?? SAMPOORAN NITNEM ??

SRM - made by the Guru Khalsa Panth in 1945. Contains a type of REHRASS which others call "SHORT" Rehrass. The Damdami Taksaal. other jathebandis, naanksariahs etc etc have a LONGER VERSION..they call it "SAMPOORAN REHRASS"...this contains much more than just the Benti Chaupaii. SO what happened is..SOME "mahapurash"..Sri 108..Baba Jis..Brahmgyanis..Nihungs..decided that the SHORT REHRASS of SRM 1945 is TOO SHORT for their liking...they ADDED more stuff...ARRILLS and dohras from DSM Banis...others added other shabads..and called their verison "SAMPOORAN"....the Question is..WHO DECIDES "SAMPOORAN" ?? is it OUR GURU ?? Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji ?? did the Sampooran GURU provide the SAMPOORAN rehrass ?? or NO ?? the Brahmgyanis had to FINISH the job for the UNSAMPOORAN GURU ?? we have to decide..its not a question of..more bani..better..feels better..sounds good..blah blah..if so WHY NOT READ the entire 1429 angs daily as NITNEM ?? WHY DID 2 GURUS CHOOSE the Shabads on Pages 1-13 ?? why not make that 26 pages..256 pages..more bani..better ?? EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL is not the answer !!

WE Cant agree on the SAMPOORAN GURU...we cant agree on the SRM 1945...what can we agree on ?? The Sampooran GURU gives us a Most PRACTICAL NITNEM..that almost everyone can do with ease while WORKING and as a Householder...Early Morning Breakfast with Japji...about 7 minutes...evening Sodar and So Purakh....about 10 minutes..at Bed Time Sohila - 3 minutes. Then we added..Jaap, Swaiyahs, some other shbads...Anand sahib FULL...Sukhmani Sahib...asa dee vaar....rehrass had shabads added, benti chaupaii...swaiyahs, arrills, etc etc...more and more time necessary....less and less people doing it..and whats worse is EACH DERA has its very own version...own additions..each jathebandi has its long and shorts...free for all cartwheel....not at all the ideal situation the SAMPOORAN GURU SHOWS US right from 1708 !!! We MUST STOP..and THINK..and RESTRAIN OURSELVES in this free fall situation..and return to the SAMPOORAN GURU.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=35309

PS. Since I am retired and thus free..I have 2 sets of daily Nitnems...MY OWN private one following Malaysian standard time ( 08Hrs + GST) and i fully ENJOY the SECOND NITNEM broadcast via satellite from Hazoor sahib/ PTC Chakdeh...AND..Darbar sahib Amritsar via PTC NEWS due to the Indian Time being 2.5 hours BEHIND Malaysian time !! Thus I also enjoy Daily Nitnem form Bangla sahib, Rakabganj Sahib Delhi..Chardikalla TIME TV...as well as MH 1 Muisc...Gurdwaras all over Canada...Patiala..Ludhiana. Via DOORDARSHAN Jalnadhar...etc etc...and i REALLY ENJOY ALL these varying nitnems..short and long rehrasses and all...but a RULE is a RULE..and the SRM should be ONE RULE FOR ALL. I LOOK forward to THAT DAY.

Not at all a rag..wet or dry ji..
1. The Rehrass OUTSIDE of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji contains the Shabad DUKH DAROO Rog bahiyah jaan sukh taam na hoi...the Bent Chaupaii ( from dsm granth Charitropakhyan section) Dohra Sagal duar ko chaadd keh aiyoh tuhareh duaar..and Five paurees of ANAND SAHIB. and concluding slok Tera Kita jatoh nahihn found just after Mundawni at the closing of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. This is the SRM Rehrass.

The "longer..sampooran rehrass" of the taksal, akj, nanaksar etc is longer than the SRM one due to further additions from DSM granth Arrills and all.Hope this clarifies.
