    Dharam dee Kirt....PRACTISE the DHARAM !! So basically this "umbrella" phrase covers each and every aspect of our life...even while sleeping...dream the "Good dreams"....Gurbani tells us..Bureh kaam ko utth khaloyah....we wake up pretty fast when we want to do "adharam"...acts against Dharam...BUT feel very sleepy and lack energy example like when have to get up to do Nitnem, go to attend Sangat in Gurdwara, listen to Gurbani paath/kirtan etc..we feel akward and tired..but three hours in a cinema full of second hand smoke and reeking of liquor etc pass so fast !!
    Lets NOT limit this to a narrow " earn honest living"...as in money/salary etc...it covers a much wider area.

    2. Daughter's earnings were and still are considered "not Halaal" in our CULTURE. A Daughter is considered "some one elses property...to be sent away to her in laws...hence the parents have no "hold" over her earnings etc. This is essentially CULTURAL Baggage and NOT GURMATT because Gurbani gives EQUAL STATUS to son/daughter...Gurmatt doesnt condone Kanya Daan..a daughter is NOT a piece of property to daan away..neither is she persona non grata in her parents hosue after marriage etc...that is Culturla practises carried over form Punjabi Society which ahve no sanction in Gurbani/Gurmatt. A parent that only has daughters should NOT feel 'impotent"..worthless..uncared for in old age etc..etc..a daughter can care MORE than a worthless drugaddict son in many cases...as is happening widely in Present day Punjab where sons murder their fathers for LAND..

    It is advised to WEIGH each "bachan" in the LIGHT of Gurbani of SGGS...and if it feels light..then it should be taken with a pinch of salt...only GURBANI is 100% pure and authentic.

    You mean we have to use our brains???? This is so unfair, what other religion makes you use your brain so much, come on now, religion is supposed to be following the rules and rituals, not following the creators essence in your head to make the final validations!

    I think too many people see something as I did above, and start to flounder, whereas the key is that there are always going to be things that don't sound right, or read right, and your heart knows whether it is Creator given or not, this covers such a huge spectrum of potential misunderstanding, and teaches your brain a 'bani' way of thinking, a stamp clearly showing ' in line with bani thinking' is clearly what we need to concentrate on.....

    Strangely enough I had a long conversation with wife at the normal debating hour of 3.45am regarding things that we do that give us a warm feeling, as if we had a hug from creator, and things we do that do not give us a negative feeling, they just give us a non feeling, and if those things are extreme enough, sever the connection with Creator altogether, I find if I have had a drink, a modest drink, I feel less connected, lustful sex is another, lying, even white lies, not letting another driver into traffic, lying in bed while your wife takes the dogs out, all of these things draw me down a bit lower, but telling the truth, excelling at work (the other day I did something I did not think I could do, and I glowed!), loving everyone around you, all these things make you glow, it is Creators essence inside you , saying Shabash, making you feel good about yourself,

    Just before my wife fell asleep, I mused we should make a list of all the things that make us glow, and this morning, I log on, and there it is, waiting for me,

    Although, I do not agree with some of them because either they contradict each other or are anti Gurmat, I must admit that is a wonderful effort but it needs refining based on the Gurmat values given to us in the SGGS, our only Guru.

    Taranjeet Singh ji,

    Thanks for this list. It is a wonderful starting point. We can do a lot with it.

    One thing more I would like to point out is the title,"52 Hukums Of Guru Gobind Singh ji1" and the reason behind it.

    1. We know that Guru Gobind singh ji did not choose it, so who chose it and why?

    2. We also know that history says Guru Sahib had 52 great poets at Paonta Sahib,( a beautiful place and a must visit historical Gurdwara). Is there any link with that as far as 52 is concerned?

    3. Is this part of any Rehatnaama issued by Guru Sahib or is it written by someone who tried to play Guru Gobind Singh ji?

    Taranjeet ji, if you happen to know the answers of the above, please share with us.

    Thanks & regards

    Tejwant singh

    Regarding query 1and 2:

    Yes, Guru Gobind Singh ji had 52 scholars who were asked to translate some existing work on Politics . I know the 'Chanakya niti' was an elaborate work that was got translated by Guru ji in Hindi /Pujabi, there may be some link between 52 Hukums and 52 scholars or It may just be sheer coincidence.

    The records of the book and translation should be available with some Libraries of Gurudwara, May be Patna Sahib or Ponta Sahib; buy my own little research shows that it is not available at Ponta sahib. I have not followed this up vigorously.

    Regarding query 3:

    To the best of my knowledge, it was not part of specific Rehatnaama issued by Guru Sahib.

    Guru Gobind Singh ji was responsible for giving a philosophical touch to sikhi and he was also responsible for institutionalization of the same. I have no reason to believe that above had anything to do with some sort of misrepresentation. But only God knows the truth.

    The link to the first post is provided and I consider it a neutral and reliable source of information. Had it not been from this source I should have thought of ten times before posting it.

    Hope your queries have been appropriately attended to.

    With regards!

    Re: 52 Hukums Of Guru Gobind Singh ji1

    These are supposedly the Final Words of Guru gobind singh Ji on his deathbed....in a book written by Balwinder Singh printed by Singh bros ISBN 81-7205-150-6 in 1995. There is no other historical evidence . The author mentions that he showed the manusacript to Principal satbir Singh who liked it very much... as did the late Tohra Manjit singh calcutta etc etc..
    He mentions the..Anteh satgur Boliah...from Ramkali sadd as what the Guru says in His final Words is important..and hence what Guru Amardass ji said on His deathbed was recorded by his grandson Bhai Sunder Ji and recorded permanenetly in AAd Granth (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) by Guru Arjun ji. He also says that the Final Words of Guru Arjun ji before going into the Ravi were heard by Baba Budha Ji and written on a WALL at Gurdwara dehra Sahib Lahore. The Final Words of Guru teg bahadur Ji are His Slok mahalla Nauvan appended to the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji at its End on Pages 1428/29. He claims Guru Teg bahadur Ji used a Coal pice to write the follwoing slok on his prison cell in delhi.."Naam rahio sadhu rahio..Rahio GUR GOBIND.
    These 52 sayings are the Final Words of Guru Gobind Singh which the author firts published in abook called..AAD SIKH and aad sakhian...and later expanded into the book Kalghidhar Ji de 52 bachan..a book of 200 pages. This is based on Gurshabdei Gobind gajiah...
    Interestingly the author explains each of these bachans with examples of Gurbani form Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Its his assertion that although it was Guru Gobind Singh who actually wielded the KHARAGGH/sword..it was Guru Nanak ji who forged the STEEL.....evrything flows form the Fountainhead..Guru Nanak JI SAHIB.
    Unfortunatley the book is in Punjabi......so English readers are left with the Bare-bones stuff Taranjeet has posted here as Thread Starter..which doesnt do justice to what the author wnats to say..

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
