    Sadh Sangatji,
    Waheguruji ka Khalsa, Waheguruji ki Fateh

    In our religion Baba Budhaji served 6 Guru Saheban and was the first Granthi of Sri Guru Granth Saheb but Guru saheban never
    used word Sant for him. Four saahebzade, 40 Mukte, Bhai Sati Dasji, Bhai Mati Dasji and Bhai Dayaliji were never called as Sant
    by Guru Sahebans. Now we see a flood of Sants. Sants with lot of money. sants with costly cars, sants with high following and
    sants with armed body guards is a common site.

    Please try to explain me who is a SANT ?

    No human being can be a sant. Anyone who says they are cannot possibly be as they are too full of ego. Even our Guru's didn't call themselves sants

    BHAAG HOA.....GUR-SANT milaya..is Guru Arjun Ji Sahib and the GUR-SANT is Guru Ramdass Ji. NO explanation could be MORE CLEARER than THAT. period.

    ONLY SGGS is SANT.

    Please go through the SPN archives..this has been discussed before.

    Satkaryog Gyani Jarnail Singhji,

    Thank you very much for your valuable comments.

    An individual Sikh can not be a Sant and if he is a Sant then he can not be a Sikh.

    Even Gurus, or great Sikhs like Bhai Mani Singh Ji, Bhai Taru Singh Ji, Bhai Bidhi Chand, Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and many others whose I haven't mentioned, were not called 'Sant' in Sikh history. But, the idle and ill-learned self-proclaimed 'Babas' of present times don't get tired of inserting 'degrees' like 'Sant', 'Huzoor Maharaj', '108', 'Brahm-gyaani'. That gives me a mixed feeling of laughter and pity on these 'Babas' and their 'sheep-like' followers.......

    Thanx. This massage has to be amplified.
    1. We should not go to their diwans
    2. If we go then do not do any Mathha Tekna to these so called sants

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!
