    Here you go part 4:

    -How should one do analysis or vichaar on rehitnamas? There are some contents in rehitnamas which are not gurmat for example in prem sumarg granth. Turk can only initiate into khalsa when he/she eats soor(pork).

    - There is a big division between monay veers and amritdhari sikhs? some amritdhari sikhs doesnt even interact with monay because they think they get their bibek broken or some amritdhari sikhs in camp use guilt trips(bhandi parchar) on monay to get them into the panth. Please share your views on this?

    - is gyan(bodh)marg necessary to merge with vahiguroo or one can also merge with vahiguroo by doing nishkam seva and simran.

    - some people who prefer vikayaran to translate gurbani beleive that if we don't interpret bani ie satguru pad arth, sant being guru sahib into one meaning then we are open to attacks of anti sikh forces using gurbani.

    - some people divide sant pad in gurbani in two parts..they beleive sant pad upma in sukhmani sahib is referred to sri guru ram das ji...sant is avastha in gurbani ref to human but cannot be praised. True sant never let others bow down..they give example of baba karak singh having stick and sant jarnail singh didnt let others to matha taik?

    - when gurbani gives updesh, its usually believed and its given to three types of people. Please share those three categories.

    - What actually is maryada for darbar sahib before singh sabha lehar?

    - In darbar before sgpc.. muslims rababi were allowed to do kirtan? How come they were removed? Also on that note, can non amritdhari can do kirtan in takth sahiban darbar? can non amritdhari can do kirtan in regular gurdwara sahib?

    - What is status of baba sri chand maharaj in gurmat..difference between udasi marg and gurmat.

    - Some people call arti arta at hazoor sahib an bhamanvaad/bhoot pooja an hindu ritual? whats your views on that?

    - How come female bhramgyanis in the panth are not as transparent as male bhramgyanis?

    - Please shed some light on birth of guru avtar an bhramgyanis?

    - Please shed some light on theory of karam aligns with hakum rajie chalna?

    - Can one merge with parbhram only after pralabdh karam ?

    - Difference between atam anand, yog anand, dasam dvara anand?

    Here is the 5th part:

    - is atamanand partibimbh(reflection) of atma?

    - is bhramgyani mahapursh is always in atamgyan avastha even when they talking to regular people?

    - There are three types of mahapursh. Daane, divane, mastane..are their internal avastha is same? Some premis criticize mastane mahapursh for not keeping 5 kakari rehit. Please shed some light on this.

    - Bachan of maharaj: raj karega khalsa akai rahe no koi ,in this bachan is khalsa referred to one and only amritdhari khalsa, or khalsa as in bhramgyani regardless of any dharam ?

    - all the bhagats which were included in sri guru granth sahib..were they all upasak of sargun saroop of vahiguroo ie- ram chandar ji, krishan maharaj or nirgun shabad upasak?

    - What is the status/avastha of shaheed singh?, are they equivalent to christian version of angels or hindu version of devi devtas?

    - In gurbani shabad mantar ie - gurmantar/mool mantar are they nirgun form or sargun form of vahiguru?

    - is gurmat turiya avastha higher buddhist nirvana pad ?

    - In gurbani, is there more upma of nirgun or sargun?

    6th part

    - is there any difference between advait vedant and gurmat? some people say advait vedant is against prema bhagti towards vahiguroo because its upasana of one atma. Is Aham Bhramasami maha vak according to gurmat? any gurbani reference support this school of thought?

    - If other dharamis, person can get to bedah mukht avastha or get to sachkhand, what was point of sri guru nanak dev ji bringing gursikhi and forming khalsa panth tisra panth?

    - Various avtars existed before in pichale yugs ie- vasudev, ram chandar ji, krishan maharaj, sri guru nanak dev ji was pargat in kalyug. If gurbani accepts all the previous avtars and their panth being valid, therefore any premi who follows their mat fully can get mukhti doesnt this make sikhi snatan dharam like shaivism instead of tisra panth? what is it mean when sri guru gobind singh ji himself said in bachitar natak. Sri Akaal Purkh sent me to this world to create the panth?

    - Gurbani existed before Guru Nanak, that means Gurmukhs existed before Guru Nanak, they are not his creation. Does that mean Sikhi gurmat marg is another samparda like Shaivism? and continuation of Sanathan Dharama (Eternal law from beginning)?

    - Usually in sakhiya there is a sakhi of baba sri chand maharaj/Lakhmi Chand did not listen to sri guru nanak dev ji patsah hakums? and still got bhramgyan, does that mean bhramgyan is attainable outside sri guru nanak dev ji sikhi marg?

    - When this jev get darshan of sargun guru maharaj saroop, after the darshan does that mean they get bedah mukht avastha?

    - - can sikhs listen to sufi qwali which are sung in memory of allah or murshids?

    - - The benefit (or not) of Akhand Paath culture - where 99% of those who pay for them to be done, turn up to to the start and the bhog, and think they will in someway be blessed. Does baba Ji feel that Sehaj Paath or Sudhaaran Paath is more beneifical to the parvaar and sangat as they can actually sit down and listen to it all?

    - Can we do sargun dhiyan of sri guru nanak dev ji saroop? some people call this as baut pooja?

    Sunsingh ji,
    ONE QUESTION For Your revered Sant ji,
    Kindly ask him as you are blessed to be close to him

    Who was/is the love of Guru Nanak?
    When one contemplates only at Guru Nanak, I see no difference between him/her or those who contemplate on other Devtas or Prophets. When one contemplates on HIM, one can see Guru Nanak too, Guru Nanak turned crazy( baora -SGGS 877)) for Him. That Nirgana Sroop worship is asential for Sikhs as per Gurbani. The state of mind where all difference of lightened ones and Him evaporates is learned through revering Guru ji through living his teachings( repeatedly teachings say" contemplate on His NAAM"), still His grace is vital, never forget that !

    Non of our Guru told us to worship body or persinality of the Guru nor does Guru Granth Sahib Ji tell us to worship Guru Granth Sahib Ji.Akal is only God.And could not be tied with wills of man or text.

    I hope everyone enjoy listening to baba jagjit singh vichar on these questions, these audio files have no copyright, any premis who wishes to put them on their site, surely can. As Gurbani say- bhramgyani di drisht amrit barsi || similiarly these veechar is one form of rain of amrit reaches out to everyone with no dvaish.

    Personally speaking for me it has been extreme pleasure talking to sant jagjit singh ji, their bachans surely calm my heart/mind from all this burning irkha/dvaish bhavna... it has been pure anandmangal...!

    Nirgun worship is the highest form. However, like a child learning how to ride a bike using training wheels, sargun worship is sometimes a must for some people starting out on this path as nirgun worship is simply beyond them. nirgun worship should be the goal and mode for sikhs. According to Gurbani, there is no difference between God and Guru, therefore for people to not only see the Guru as divine and do sargun worship is only natural, although it is a temporary stage moving to a higher stage.

( quote sunsingh ji)

    I am just wondering if Guru ji asks Sikhs to go for first Sargun Sroop, after some time, then go for Nirgan sroop? Our Guru Granth sahib ji starts with Nirgun Sroop, through out Jap Ji Sahib, Guru ji advises us to contemplate only on HIM through Guru, only longing for Him is advocated. Should we follow that or those Guru Shabad where due to enlightenment obtained by Guru ji with His grace, sargun Sroop Guru is addressed as of His part. Should we stop there ignoring HIM? I have never read so loud cry- prayer for Nirgun Sroop in any religious scripture including the ancient ones( Vedas etc). I checked them recently, like running in a cycle they come back to Sargun sroop only. It is only Sree Guru Granth Sahib ji that advocates only His worship, for this, Guru we take our solely support. Vijaydeep Singh seems pretty much right here as per Gurbani. Guru Seva and Guru pooja is living Guru's teachings strictly.

    One humble question from das.

    As Gurmat is to worship formless as being in all form.He are purly khalsa who recogansie Nakashis ie purely God.Then why to emulate Hinduism in us ie by worshipping Guru's persionlity or say worshipping Guru Granth Sahib Ji,beholding Akal bounded by the text.Is is not OK for worshpper of formed one to revert to worship lord Rama or Lord Krishna.

    Did not Tenth Master said,"whoso ever call me God will be lake of hell".

    Did not in Chaubees Avatar of Shri Dasham Granth Sahib has the fact that Akal puts blame to all avtaras and stay behind.Why not worship that one.
    (that is not the Mahakal realted to god shiva as in Shiv Purana,we have Shiva taking an incarnation of Mahakal at ujjain.While over here in Shri Dasham Granth Sahib Ji,we have that on order of Akal Mahakal ,who is formless,never born,Vishnu takes the Avtar of Rudra/Shiva,this Shiv further takes some other incanrations.Mahakal is incarantion of this shiva and not mentioned in Shri Dasham Granth Sahib Ji but in Shiv Purana,term in Vammarg or Tantircs is Mahakal Bhairav with wife as Bhairavi).

    So kio Simro Nanaka Jame Te Mar Jaye.Eko Simaro nanaka Jo Jal Thal Reah Samai.(Sorry for spelling or verbal mistakes).

    Gurbani in Guru Granth Sahib ji = Guru = God. To recognize this does not in any way limit worship or understanding of God to sargun only. God is both nirgun and sargun. Nowhere in Gurbani does it say that worship of the sargun aspect of waheguru is wrong. Nirgun is the highest and that is what is emphasized. However, it is beyond some people's buddhi to understand nirgun and for them it is perfectly acceptable to start out with sargun.

    please provide even the slightest shred of proof from Gurbani backing up your assertion. Gurbani states that God exists in sargun as well as nirgun, see japji sahib for the examples, or numerous other shabads. Nowhere is sargun remembrance considered wrong.
    Baba Jagjit Singh ji, a student of bhramgyani Baba Jawala Singh ji, after stuying Gurmat his whole life certainly understands this better than people who criticise but are unable to provide statements from Gurbani to back themselves up.

    Naturally there will be many statements in Gurbani supporting nirgun pooja, as this is superior and Guru's preferred way, nowhere in the katha is this contradicted, in fact it is stated as well. But support for nirgun pooja does not equal criticism of sargun. God exists in both.

    There is no criticism of any one you talk about, no Baba ji or Sant ji is questioned, what I posted above is from Sree Guru Granth Sahib ji, nothing is mine, If some Sikhs have guts to ignore Guru ji, so it be, I just couldnt.where it is stated in Japji that worship Sargun Sroop first? What does Guru say? Guru gives His NAAM, Guru wants from us to contemplate on HIM, should I follow Guru ji or others? Here is what Guru wants from his SIKHS, this is Guru teaching( UPDESH), Therefore Guru is my Braham -Gyani, Guru is my refuge, my journey ends at Guru Ji, Tenth Nanak says" if any one calls me God, hell to Him" How dare I disobey Guru's Hukam. All enlightened ones become like HIM eventually( Mehla-1), should we worship all enlightened ones as God too? Sargun Sroop worshiping was already prevailing before Guru ji coming, Guru ji put a stop to it. I havent come cross a Vaak that states, start with Sargun Sroop any where in Sree Guru Granth Sahib Ji, HERE IS GURU UPDESH, any doubt left by Guru ji? NONE.

    ਫਿਰਿ ਚੜੈ ਦਿਵਸੁ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀਗਾਵੈਬਹਦਿਆ ਉਠਦਿਆ ਹਰਿਨਾਮੁਧਿਆਵੈ
    Fir cẖaṛai ḏivas gurbāṇī gāvai bahḏi*ā uṯẖ*ḏi*ā har nām ḏẖi*āvai.
    Then, at the rising of the sun, he is to sing Gurbani; whether sitting down or standing up, he is to meditate on the Lord's Name.
    ਜੋ ਸਾਸਿ ਗਿਰਾਸਿ ਧਿਆਏਮੇਰਾਹਰਿਹਰਿਸੋਗੁਰਸਿਖੁਗੁਰੂਮਨਿਭਾਵੈ
    Jo sās girās ḏẖi*ā*ė mėrā har har so gursikẖ gurū man bẖāvai.
    One who meditates on my Lord, Har, Har, with every breath and every morsel of food - that GurSikh becomes pleasing to the Guru's Mind.(SGGS 305)

    All of the Gurbani you have qouted does not condemn or even mention sargun worship. Absence of discussion on sargun worship does not equal condemnation. God exists in both sargun and nirgun forms. Worship of God in sargun or nirgun is allowed, but nirgun is emphasized as it is superior. Sargun was never stopped by the Guru, please provide direct evidence of this from Gurbani if you disagree, although I assure you, there is none.

    I have never said sargun worship is required. Just that if can be used, and is helpful for those unable to concentrate on nirgun form of God. What are we going to do for those people who are unable to focus on nirgun??? Do we just leave them behind and will help only be provided for those who can do nirgun bhagti? No - that is not in line with sarbat da bhalla, Guru ji helps all, including those who lack the abiilty to do nirgun bhagti.

    btw, Gurbani call Guru ji God himself in numerous places. There is no difference. Guru ji is God as Gurbani cannot contradict itself. Guru Nanak Dev ji himself is sargun saroop of Waheguru. IF I go to hell for speaking the truth about my Guru ji it's worth it. :)
