Ek Oankar Wahiguru Ji Ki Fateh Das this time is going to write a few more question and his own subjective opinion.And perhaps if some like Talwara sahib read it then there could be compalaint of Das in higher Sikh aouthoritis. But since das is from Nirmala side.There we are suppose to preach Sikhism to others and others do ask us question.And Gurmat is capble to answer all questions. So das is rising them.Das is observing a starange thing that there is very much similarity in the views of Say Sanatan Sikhs and Learned Sikhs of sgpc Maryada.Das keeps on asking these question that in case some Sikhs ask him then that person must be told valid as per sgpc and not by Nirmala idealogy but when das reads views from Gyani Sahib or Amarpal singh Ji then it is found that both are having a bit similar views.(Das here is talking about Nirmalas working in Areas away from Punjab and not what nanaksar type person perhaps may say). Coming back Das is starting a few questions Why should not we throw our hairs in dustbin when they are detched from body while doing Kangha.Why should they be burnt or put in water or buryed.Hairs are part of Body so if nails,or say spotum can be put in dustbin then why not hairs ? Then again Das is touching KIrpan issue,Why should one be cutting his hand if he brings Kirpan out side just like that.It is a ritual in Rajpoots but from where this hindu culture come into us ? Why can we use our own Kirpan to practice Martial Arts or say in case in Langer we are unable to unlid a bottale then why cannot we use our Kirpan to open it if there is no other option better then it with us? In Jungle say if we are in some exsercise and Kirpan often is a better help then knife in many time why can we use it? Why can not the Karra be removed when say we are fighting a Karate or Tai Kwan do Match or say wrestling ? And if removed why should we keep it near our Body ? Likewise in wrestling often we wear Langot(a sort of supporter) an as per rule that only be on our body ,So Should we stop going for it as during it we may have to remove all Ks but Hairs temporaryly(We can wear as organiser do not object but with other 4 ks if we fight then we can injure the opponent ?So could we say that wearing Kachhcera duing wresting can lead to its torning? Likewise why should not we talk if there is an emergency while we are doing Patth(including Akhand Patth) or Kirtan among other things.And what is the use of Akhand Path if actual person who is orgaioonising it is neither listening nor reading?Das find that just by letting it happen as a ritual is useless is das correct? Das again is touching keski issuemwrU mhlw 5 ] (1083-13) maaroo mehlaa 5. Maaroo, Fifth Mehl: Alh Agm KudweI bMdy ] (1083-13, mwrU, mÚ 5) alah agam khudaa-ee banday.

So Singh are also saint soldiers.But if Das is not forgootan that in end of Dasham Granth Ji there is a maryada given by Guru.Tenth Guru said that this Maryada is not averce to old tradtions.This proves that perrior Gurus also had 5ks(That Maryada is agrred as undoubtlabley by Guru by most of the missionaries also with whom das has talked) So 5ks and 4 Hs to be descarded. ie Huqqa(Huble buble),Hazamat(Sahving) Halal(Meat with Qalma read while killing) o('is' in this context else it is used for 'and') Haram(forbbiddan) and at last applying hina(may be all sort of dye) on beard is like blakening of face. So may be put the desire to apply hinna should be undone we can have female wear Keski,To avoid wearing Hat in services it is good for them to wear keski(Das has read the Rahit Nammah of bhai Daya Singh Ji,which prohibits Sikhs to wear cap,It states that Sikh must keep head covered and also state Sikh must not apply (musturd) oil on hairs, But Das thinks that only that portion are read and not the rest like Sikh must apply milk butter on hair and not oil This must mean that when both are with Sikh then preference must be for milk then oil so could be in otheer cases). Coming Back to the point of Keski,Das has many freind better then brothers who support turban for women.Das even agree that idealy Sikh lady must wear Turban BUT then das is coming back to attack ritualism that if Sikh lady does not wear turban She is NOT a Sikh and those who opposed Turban as must for Sikh lady were agent of Arya Samaj during the time of Rahit Maryada formulation may be supporter of Ragmala were the same.Instead of answering question this passing of Buck. A whole lot of time which could be spent to preach about Akal,About Gurmat is wasted to teach sisters why should they wear Keski or why should not hairs be trimmed or why baptism is essential but in the time preachers are themselves lost.Some say it started by Tenth master and we are Sikh of them and there Maryayda was unlike that of First Master(in fact Sikhs of first master were without 5ks,This thing is wrong as Das has seen Kirpan of First Master at Patna Sahib,obtained from a Pandit from Nanak Dehi Orrisa,who use to worship it since generations(He was a Brahmin so he was justified to do Brahmnaical task but at Patna Sahib it is muesum). So What First Master Said so was Tenth and Sikh has to be of one Gurbani Guru or Gurubar Akal.It is wrong that in first form Guru could not do what he did in Tenth form.He was capalbe to do all but he did not show miracle or else people would have started to worship him in personal.(Das is sorry that even some missionaries and his own Nirmalas do Ardas(Prayer) to Guru Nanak Dev Ji(A wave of sea) and not Akal(sea itself)) . Das was told to not to intervine when preaching is done so he did not interwined. As purpose of preaching is good.BUT is fundamental of Gurmat with those preacher is OK,Can Das bring Hindu or Muslims childern to such preaching ? No one is happy to listen to wizardy that to mr X room Guru Gobind Singh Ji came in dream or in vision(Das can give many such personal expirance) But it is avoiding logical answer only people restore to wizardy another reson could be encoded Messages(Das will discuss it in Dasham Granth area). It is good to keep 5ks,a turban and even das inspite of being beef and pork eater consider vegitarian Sikhs better then himself.BUT what is the use of amrit Sanskar or 5ks or turban if Gurmat is not understood.Das can say that if Gurmat is described to all other understands the glory of Akal even non Sikh will take Amrit.(Nirmalas also do not force anyone or coax anyone to take Amrit more force is done to Nam Simaram(remebering Akal),Vidya Arjan(taking knowledge) and doiong seva(service which could be in field attached to Dera where vegitables etc . are grown or even in making medicine of Aryur Veda as Gurudev sent 5 guys to learn all the arts which was under the control of Brahmin caste like teaching,medicine,Asrtonomy(to fix dates for Vikrami Samvat) and to preach Sikhi in Pandits and Brahmins themselves as Guru wanted all to unite in one caste of Khalsa then being divided and thence defeated) Das is sorry that he again went off the course. So Das wants to ask all those frind who say that in Sachkhand there are female Sikhs moving wearing keski only and Guru is sitting there(This is as per das capacity appears to be some other Khand maybe kalpana khand or may be illusion khand made by maya. So if by waering Keski female appears to be eqaul to man then why not as Gyani Ji already said that,Female folk also be told not to wear Payjama but reamin in Kachhera only as male do(Das has a freind who even say that it is bad to wear trousers or Payjama as they may touch soil of land and when we sit to read Adi Guru Darbar,Our dress is unfit for that so better is to wear Kachhera only ,So that means that female must not to Path or Vak of Guru Granth Ji? Similar situation was brought to hindus in Kapal Mochan by Tenth master (see Triya Cahritar perhaps of Dasham Guru Darbar)) So whom to belive? Akal is in mud so what happen if that touches or reraches Adi Guru Darbar,Perhaps we may not breath towards our face there? Is this not moving to ritualism and off the spritualism? Then female often cover the chest part with Chunni so why not male does the same as we are trying to prove by ritual that Male and female are eqaul in Panth.Why not male also keep Chunni(some do keep Palla but it is in neck and not on chest) ? Das here want to say that Nector of Sabre is good for Female but where is it written by Gurudev that head be covered always, say what to do while bathing while washing hairs? And one more thing say das has gone some wear with one Kachhera and then it haappens that he has to stay there for a night.Then how can das take Bath,Can he reomve his Kachhera and retake it after bathing or shall he take bath with it and then keep the wet one in a bag and move without Kachhera or can he keep on wearing wet Kachhera?And while changing Kachhera why can not remove one then wear another unlike dooing both the work simulatainously? Then last thing,Guru is known for covering naked or one who do Parde Kajjana but why can not Gurus(Adi Guru Darbar) Roomalas be burnt after being used instead of being given to poors and needy for cloathing or bedding?What is wrong in that?What is the logic anyway to cover Guru with blanket in winter ? And some person is Punjab is knowen to warp Adi Guru Darbar in plastic sheet and bathing it in water. Das is interseted to know that is all this coorect and if all this is in Sikhism then where Arya Samajis or Brahmanical ritualitcs are wrong they use to do the same?Is not our Sikhi getting trapped into the swamp of ritualism? Das wants to views of all of the members from young one like Bhai Arvind Singh Ji,Aman Singh Ji,Drkhalsa Ji,Sikh Ji, among others to learned People like Tejwant Singh Ji,Gyani Jarnail Singh Ji,Amarpal Singh Ji,Bhai Amritpal Singh Ji,Sister Prabjot Kaur Ji among other. Akal bless and at last Das want to say his own opinion,Rituals do give an outward proof to inward sprituality,Guru wants to follow Guru,So without question or doubt we go by Gurus way and worship Akal and as proof to word that we follow Guru we keep Rahit of 5ks and and 4 hs but what should be done when ritualism try to undo spritualism. Akal Bless.
