    I am puzzled being a devout Sikh of Sree Guru Granth Sahib, is it a part of Sikhism to beat the number of paths? Why to recite chupaee only?
    Ritualistic acts take away our sincerity from us, it closes the path between Him and us. I shall rather remember Him in context of those who suffered in 1984
    In tragic times look what Guru ji did
    ਸਾਹਿਬ ਕੇ ਗੁਣ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਗਾਵੈ ਮਾਸ ਪੁਰੀ ਵਿਚਿ ਆਖੁ ਮਸੋਲਾ ਜਿਨਿ ਉਪਾਈ ਰੰਗਿ ਰਵਾਈ ਬੈਠਾ ਵੇਖੈ ਵਖਿ ਇਕੇਲਾ [ SGGS 723)
    Sāhib ke guṇ Nānak gāvai mās purī vicẖ ākẖ masolā. Jin upā▫ī rang ravā▫ī baiṯẖā vekẖai vakẖ ikelā.
    Nanak sings the glories of the Lord in the city of corpses and mentions this affair. He, who has made the mortals and attached them to pleasures, sits apart and alone, and beholds them.

    This is nothing but parroting which is not part of Gurmat Ideals, but Shabad Vichaar is.

    GURMAT is not about "Ginntees Minntees...figures and counts...."
    Gurbani at many many places clearly declares that HE IS NOT ATTAINED BY SUCH ACTS.

    A Million paaths is nothing compared to the same hours spent on Gurbani VICHAAR and then ADAPTING ones DAILY LIFE according to the GURBANI VICHARED. EK Gharree aadhi garhhee..aadhee se aadh...even a split half second of VICHAAR is more than enough....IF FOLLOWED and ADAPTED in our LIVES...

    Such antics seem to be gaining ground...as it is "easier" !! The NAMDHAREES tried this tactic about 70 years ago by introducing PATRA PAATH !! Their Satguur was struck by this so called wonderful idea to..COMPLETE as many as possible Akhand paaths of SGGS in the SHORTEST TIME...so he TOOK the SGGS birs aparta nd DISTRIBUTED the Indidvidual Patras (pages) to Sangats and told each person to JUST KEEP ON REPEATEDLY READING HIS OWN PATRA...for 100, or 1000, or 10,000 times..and in this way a MILLION Paaths of SGGS could be done in a DAY !! This NEFARIOUS IDEA was struck down by Timely action by the AKAL TAKHAT which nipped it in the bud...
    But the DEHDHAREES were not entirley discouraged..they began Paathhan deean Larriean...strings of SIMULTANEOUS Paaths from Birs of SGGS parkashed in ROWS upon ROWS...all merely mechanical paaths with no listeners ..just Ginntee minntees....and NOW this...all in the same string....
    Do Shabad Vichaar,,look inward..and improve ones self...that is GURMATT.:welcome:

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!
