    Pandits and Astrologers have always played a centre stage in influencing the followers of Sanatan religion. Astrology for example has a wide acceptance level amongst the masses. But Guru Ji explains in a different way (please read full shabad) :-

    Page 570, Line 19
    ਪੰਡਿਤ ਜੋਤਕੀ ਸਭਿ ਪੜਿ ਪੜਿ ਕੂਕਦੇ ਕਿਸੁ ਪਹਿ ਕਰਹਿ ਪੁਕਾਰਾ ਰਾਮ ॥
    पंडित जोतकी सभि पड़ि पड़ि कूकदे किसु पहि करहि पुकारा राम ॥
    Pandiṯ joṯkī sabẖ paṛ paṛ kūkḏe kis pėh karahi pukārā rām.
    All the religious scholars and astrologers read and study, and argue and shout. Who are they trying to teach?

    Perhaps themselves, or each other?

    kis peh karaeh pukara Raam..is more than just "teach".... thus the translation itself is inadequate...
    who are they trying to "fool"...,Mislead...sell snake oil...by calling RaM Ram !! also fits

    This is a very good Shabad , Guruji directly advises us that all these so-called Astrologers / Pandits r only into the trade of Maya , there is nothing in their hand ( no power ) to change destiny . I see more & more Sikh households falling into their trap . May God bless them this wisdom , so that they may see the commands of Guruji clearly & do not waste their time on these gimmicks .

This was in Hardwaar at Kurkshetar Mela when Guru ji also thre water tot eh WEST..to teach another valuable lesson...
     
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!
