    Such things can encourage ego. Scholars should not accept these awards.

    First and foremost giving awards to these 'scholars' is a borderline plagiarism as they did not write the Gurbani but were blessed enough to express what was instilled in them by the Gurbani itself.

    Sharing Gurbani is the true essence of Vand Kei Chaknah ( spiritually speaking). How can one take credit for the Creative Energy flowing within when one is just a mere channel!!?, like a PVC pipe transporting water.

    If some ego maniacs insist on giving them awards, then the recipients should demand that the cash value of the rewards should be given towards helping others. Tsunami victims would love to Thank THE ONE after receiving some aid.
    Sikhi is not for self praise, a pat at the back, a chip on the shoulder faith, but a faith like a fragrance of a flower which emits itself in all directions, towards everyone that comes in contact, sans discrimination.

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!
