Guru Nanak visited Tibet in 1517, historical references are there but Sikkim govt wilfully removing all signs of his visit

September 26, 2017

“Lie remains a lie even if it is spoken from the high pedestal of a throne.

Truth remains a truth even when uttered from the dark dungeon by a common man.

Lie will remain a lie even when repeated daily.

Truth remains a shinning star to enlighten the dark corners of human souls.

Lie is on its way to defeat.

Truth is on its way to Victory. Truth takes its own time to reveal but ultimately it reveals.”


Islam claims: Sikhism is very close to it,

Hindus claims: Sikhism is their sect,

Tibetan observed: Buddha and Guru Nanak preaches the same.

Even they all having animosity with Sikhs, eliminate them, demolish their Gurudwaras(places of worship)  and make every effort to merge Sikhi with them?

This post is a first hand information collected by Major N S Issar in 1964 and published in The Sikh Review Calcutta in its January 1965 issue on pp. 21-26., and reprinted in The Punjab: Past and Present(1969,pp.328-333), a Journal of Punjabi University, Patiala.

From this write up of Major N S Issar it is patent that:

(1) He had gathered the information on Chungthang Gurdwara and its related memorials-Mound with footprints of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Spring Water from this mound, Rice and Banana crops, two huge trees around it, multi-coloured flags- from the Local Lamas who migrated to this land from Tibet after Tibet was forcibly occupied by China in 1959.

(2) The Lama from Tibet was 6.6′ Feet tall with long hairs of a Yogi. His talk was interpreted by a local Lama well-versed in Gorkhali, Lapcha, Bhutia, Tibetan and Hindi languages.

(3) This Tibetan Lama in exile during his conversation uttered the name NANAK and explained that Nanak among the locals is revered as Rimpoche (Precious Master)Nanak Guru.

(4) Crops of Rice and Banana, a gift from Guru Nanak, to this land of Apple and Maize was astonishing.

(5) Another Lama from Tibet was in Sikkim for Nirvana and from his bag he produced a miniature of Guru Nanak of Amritsar removing all doubts of Major Issar on Guru Nanak’s Visit to Sikkim.

(6) Lama Shri Gelong Chang Chube of Lachung Gompha confirmed that Rimpoche Nanak Guru of Punjab visited Sikkim and this is the firm belief of the locals. This area was visited only once 54 years back by a French Couple in 1910.

(7) This Lama also talks about a Stone Memorial in Gurmukhi or Hindi giving details of Guru Nanak’s visit. We have already posted the picture of the Stone Memorial, discovered much later by the Army Personnel and is again uploaded as record.

This small write up written 52 years back conclusively substantiate the fact that Padmasambhava’s sect and area of preaching is confined to Tibet only, and he never visited Sikkim. Sikkim was inhabited 500 years later in 13th Century.

The writer has mentioned Baba Bedi, full name P.L. Bedi father of film actor Kabir Bedi and author of Brief Life of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and First Translation of Zafarnamah into English.

Hence this piece of information by a Tibetan Buddhist is sufficient to demolish the misleading lies and perjurious averments of the Sikkim Government Officials to occupy Sikh Gurdwaras to convert them into Idol Worshippers Temples in the name of Padmasambhava.

History distorted

How the history of Gurudwara Gurudongmar is distorted by Sikkim govt is clearly visible from this above pasted copy of a board promoting falsehood?

The Sikh review

Guru Nanak in Tibet
By:- Tarungpa Tulku

I am uploading an important paper written by a Tibetan Buddhist, Tarungpa Tulku ,which was published in India Times, Delhi dated March 6, 1966 (p.3) and was reproduced in Punjab: Past and Present(1969)
It gave me great pleasure when I was asked to write the article I have wanted for a long time to say something about my interest of the religion of the Sikhs in India, and of my connection with it. After my escape from Tibet, I live as a refugee in India for several years, alongside so many of my countrymen. There I had the great good fortune to be looked after by a Sikh family, by Baba Bedi, his English wife and their three children. While I was with them, I was able to visit many of the Sikh holy places and I was given hospitality there.

My interest in Sikhi is not only a personal one, however, in Tibet, Guru Nanak ji is revered as an incarnation of Guru Padmasanbhav. Many of our pilgrims visited Amritsar and other holy places which they looked upon as equal in inmportance to Baudh Gaya. They always said that the Sikhs treated them with great respect and were very hospitable: ‘as our expression goes, they bowed down to their fact.’ It seems that Sikhs really practice the doctrine of their religion; perhaps they are the only ones who give such wonderful dana to travelers

Most Tibetans know that Guru Nanak visited Tibet, and the systical ideas of the two religions are very similar. I have noticed that Sikhs never worship images in their shrines, but that there is in the center of the book, the Guru Granth Sahib. In our tradition, one of the last things that the Buddha said was that in the dark age after his death he would return in the form of the books. “At that time,” he said, “ Look upto me and respect me.” Just as we do not believe in justifying rituals, so in the Sikh ceremonies, it seems that the people simply read and contemplate the words of their text, so that no misunderstanding arises.

I was very interested in the Sikh symbolism of the three daggers; In Buddhism, a knife often appears as the cutting off of the roots of the three poisons; greed, hatred and illusion. I was also very interested in the Sikh practices never to cut one’s hair, as this is also the practice among Tibetan hermits and contemplatives. The most famous of these was Mihrepa, who said that there were three things that should be left in their natural state, one should not cut one’s hair, dye one’s clothes, nor change one’s mind. It’s true that most Tibetan Monks wear yellow, and shave their heads; these are practices that come from India, and symbolize humility and detachment from worldly things. Outside the more organized monastic tradition, however the the emphasis is that the natural goodness and power of growth within should be allowed to develop freely without interference from outside.

Both Guru Nanak and Buddha said that their followers that the real nature of the universe should never be limited by the idea of personal God or Gods. Those who made offerings at their shrines should remember that whole universe was the proper offering (…..) before and itself. Although Guru Nanak dis not think of himself as the founder of a new school of thought, it seems there is very much in common between our philosophies.

When i return to India, I hope to increase understanding of the Sikh religion among Tibetan people, and it’s my wish one day to translate the Guru Granth Sahib into Tibetan. Now I am living in England and I can see much good might be accomplished by Sikhism in England, and Europe, and America, and I wish success to everyone whose concerns this is.

Letter sent to PM Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh exposing attempts to convert Sikh (Temple) Gurudwara into Budhist Monastery by CM Sikkim Pawan Chamling

September 5, 2017

Travel route


The letter sent to honorable Prime Minister Narendra Damodar Modi could not be received at any of his personal or official mail but then a copy of the same was sent to Home Minister Rajnath Singh ji was received. I hope it reveals necessary truth on existence of Gurudwara before Sikkim govt enacted any law in 1991 on Forest prevention, misused in 2017 to forcefully evacuate it and build a new Monastery there demolishing it. He himself confessed that he offered three times in previous years to build a Budhist Monastery at GuruDongmar lake but no one came forward.

Sikkim News

What does it mean? Why did no body came forward to accept the lucrative offer?


Its because the yellow capped Lamas inhabitants in this part of Sikkim are followers of guru Nanak and they name him in due respect as ‘RIMPOCHEY GURU NANAK OF PANJAB’.
It’s the reason that nobody accepted this offer and prepared himself to demolish Sikh Gurudwara built to commemorate historical visit of Guru Nanak in beginning of 15th century.

If the Sikkim is known as land of Rice in whole Tibet, it must always be thankful to Guru Nanak who spread boiled rice in fields and blessed the land, now it’s a rich state in growing rice in it’s fields at high altitude. No where in the world rice grows at similar high altitude.

Guru Nanak also grew Banana trees and Sikkimese now grow Bananas but why do they want to bring Padmasambhav in it whereas he never visited in this valley, He eloped with his horse from Samye Monaestry, Lhasa and never seen afterwards.
Copy of the letter in the court of public, judge yourself:


The Hon. Sh. Narendra Damodar Modi,
Prime Minister of India.

North Block,.
New Delhi.

Sub: Historical Gurudwara GuruDongmar sealed and forcefully evacuated  by Sikkim govt and Chungthang on scrutiny.



Dear Sir,

               Being a faithful citizen of India, I would like to bring in your kind notice and put some facts before your good self as follows on how Sikkim Govt. is changing its status as a Budhist state and has become a threat to secular image of India by acting against micro minority the Sikhs in this border state where Sikh soldiers are deployed to safeguard its borders. It’s playing with fire and a little spark can push whole nation on unrest and cause defamation to the structure of secular nation.

The history of Gurudwara Dongmaar:

Records show that during his journeys to the Himalayas and the Far East, including China, Guru Nanak visited all these states around 1516 AD. This itinerary is found recorded in Janam Sakhee Bhai Bala; Janam Sakhee Walait Wali; Janam Sakhee Meharban; Janam Sakhee B-40; Suchak Parsang by Bhai Behlo; Mahima Parkash by Baba Sarup Chand; Parchian Sewa Das; Nanak Prakash by Bhai Santokh Singh; Nanak Parkash, Twarikh Guru Khalsa and Gurdham Prakash by Gyani Gian Singh; Guru Khalsa Twareekh by Giani Lal Singh (Sangrur); Jeevan Charit Guru NanakDev ji by Dr. Trilochan Singh; Travels of Guru Nanak by Dr. Surinder Singh (Kohli); Atlas of Travels of Guru Nanak by Dr Fauja Singh and Kirpal Singh; Guru Nanak’s Travels to Himalayan and East Asian Region by Dr. Dalvinder Singh (Grewal) (the author), and a host of other researchers. Though Janamsakhis and other contemporary material are vague about the names of the places, yet they are specific about Al-Lachen Bhutan Des which are specially mentioned in these Janamsakhis.

The local people of the area and Lamas of Karma-pa Nying-ma-pa Sect confirm Guru Nanak’s visit to these areas. The Lamas from these areas have been visiting Golden Temple, Amritsar, regularly to pay obeisance to their beloved Guru Rimpoche, Guru Nanak, also known as NanakLama in their areas. Guru Nanak’s footprints, a robe and a water-carrying utensil (kamandal) are preserved in Lachen Gompha, Sikkim, commemorating his visit to the place.

After his visit to Kailash-ManSarovar, Guru Nanak returned along Kali River and went to Nepal, where an ancient Gurdwara at Kathmandu, on the bank of river Bishnumati commemorates his visit. Visiting various religious places in Nepal, he crossed over to Tibet through Nanak-la pass and reached Sakya monastery. The earlier king of Tibet from Karma-pa Sect was, by then, deposed by the Ge-lug-pa sect but was still holding on to this monastery. Guru Nanak helped Trasung Deochung reconstruct this monastery. Trasung Deochung honoured him with a robe that is preserved in Lachen Gompha.
From Tibet, Guru Nanak entered Sikkim through Chhorten-Nyi-ma-la. Passing through Dolma Sampa and Tongpen, he entered Muguthang valley where he visited Kedang, Bendu, Sherang, Lyingka, and Muguthang. He went through Naku la and Lawu Gompha and reached plateau area around Guru Dongmar.

In this plateau the yak grazers approached Guru Nanak with a request, that: “they do not find water in winter as it gets frozen all over, temperature falling down to minus 35 degrees.” The Guru (Guru Nanak) hit the perpetually snow-covered Guru Dongmar Lake with his stick to provide water to the grazers. The ice melted giving way to crystal clear water. Since then the water of the lake is stated to never freeze. The lake and the hill feature atop came to be known as Gurudongmar Lake and hill respectively. The same names are found recorded in the ancient maps prepared by the British in nineteenth century.

Some grazers projected another problem to Guru Nanak. Due to the effect of altitude, their virility was affected. They requested the Guru to do something about it. Guru Nanak blessed the lake, saying,” Whosoever takes the water of this lake will gain virility and strength and will be blessed with children.” The people of the area have firm faith in Guru’s words and consider the water of the lake as nectar. A Gurdwara was constructed in eighties to commemorate Guru Nanak’s visit to the place. We used to trek to Gurudongmar then, after traveling from Chungthang on foot, covering the distance in six days.

The Gurdwara was constructed after full inquiries from head lamas of Buddhist monitories (gomphas) at Fudong, Chungthang, Lachen, Lachung and Thangu and all the local people, and with their active help.

Some facts on Gurudwara GuruDongmar:

1)-   That The Gurudwara GuruDaangmar is built at Dongmar lake in Sikkim since 1969-70 before merger of Sikkim into India to commemorate visit of Guru Nanak Dev ji at this place. The historical significance, its evidences are mentioned in holy scriptures and many books of Sikh religion.

2)-    That It forcefully occupied historical Gurudwara GuruDongmar which is situated on high altitude of more than 17000 feet and not possible for any attendant to live there 24 hrs. In absence of any attendant, Granthi singh of Gurudwara, the SDM Chungthang Sonam Topge Tashi along with other officials forcefully broke opened the locks of Gurudwara, confiscated the Holy Guru Granth Sahib ji, it’s treasury box, other holy scriptures and the daily used items to perform worship in a Gurudwara without any presence of a duty Magistrate and brought it down to another historical Gurudwara Nanak Lama Sahib at Chungthang and abandoned the confiscated items on the roadside in a street.

3)-    That the video of abandoned Guru Granth Sahib ji and other holy items sent a wave of anger in Sikhs all over the world. They felt betrayed and hurt as by this mean act of disrespect and sacrilege of their Guru of Sikh religion by a govt official violating Sikh Code of Conduct, without intimating the authenticated and constitutionally elected Gurudwara Management committees or without issuing any notice before sealing the Gurudwara, the CM Sikkim Pawan Chamling and SDM Sonam Topge Tashi caused hurt the religious sentiments and misused official powers given to them.

4)-  That the said Gurudwara in decades have earlier been also tried to convert into a temple, but then Lt. Gen. HRS Kalkat converted it into Sarv-Dharm-Sthal to pacify Sikh soldiers and the Sikh world but when this was noticed by some pilgrims, they complained on its conversion to a temple to SGPC in 1997.

       Than the President Gurcharan Singh Tohra called upon Sh. George Fernandez, than Defense Minister of India who ordered to remove all encroachments and unauthorized conversions of the Gurudwara and since than the daily recitation of Guru Granth Sahib ji could be restored till date before it was locked and sealed by Sikkim administration.

5)-      That the Gurudwara is historical and looked after and maintained by army personal who are indirectly the custodians of this Gurudwara for decades. All the soldiers having faith in Guru Granth Sahib pay their obeisance there before going on war front and pray for the victory of the nation and their safe return.

           Whether sealing the Gurudwara GuruDongmar and converting it into a Budhist Monastery the Sikkim govt. not made jeopardize in faith of those soldiers who moved ahead on war front, many got martyred, sacrificed their lives, could never return and with others who are deployed there away from home?

6)-   That the belongings of Guru Nanak Dev ji are still preserved safely with Lachen Monastery and we have list and pictures of those belongings, the history of this sacred place are all on threat to be changed by Sikkim govt under a malicious intention to keep this zone reserved for Budhist place of worship only. To achieve their goal, the Sikkim govt enacted some laws in past and gradually strengthened itself to misuse those laws to takeover the Gurudwaras there.

7)-       That after taken over the Gurudwara GuruDaangmaar, the Sikkim govt keeping it’s evil eye on other historical Gurudwara at Chungthang, it has issued the notice of illegal encroachment of few feet after construction of Gurudwara decades ago.  Were the authorities sleeping or un-functional that they suddenly got awoken to abolish Sikh culture, its customs, its religious places of worship in the state?

8)-    That as we got the news of forced evacuation, we immediately filed a PIL in Supreme court on 23rd August 2017. The honorable Supreme Court ordered the state of Sikkim to maintain status quo till 13th Sep as on this date another relevant appeal is going to be heard in Sikkim High Court.

9)-    That the Sikkim state has restricted Sikhs to visit/pilgrimage at Gurudwara GuruDongmar without issuing any notification. In this modern era when the bio-metric signs of every citizen, is preserved through Adhar card and other information from other IDs, is it not a violation of fundamental rites of the people born in this nation to whom Constitution allows profess of their religion?

           Than why do the Sikhs only targeted by Sikkim govt and restricted to visit their shrines? Is Sikkim not a part of India that we Sikhs have to obtain a permission like Visa to roam freely?

Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukarji was also not permitted to enter state of J&K and he had to start an agitation and sat on protest, he offered his arrest in protest. Since than the entry is opened to citizens of India, in state of J&K,

          Than why does the state of Sikkim not allow Sikhs to pay obeisance to their guru in their shrine at Guruwara GuruDaangmaar?

But before a legal case start and years of pleading in courts wasted, and Sikhs feel not part of this nation, we humbly request to use your influence and amend the said enacted laws which are misused to takeover the religious places of one faith, to be used by other faith. If it becomes a practice and followed by other states, what will be the future of India, it can be well imagined?

           And sir, by the directions given by Supreme Court, we the petitioners and witnesses in this case shall have to appear before Sikkim High Court in Gangtok before 13th Sep. 2017 but we are feared of illegal apprehension on our entrance in Sikkim. If harassed,detained or arrested on fabricated, concocted stories by Sikkim police, its whole liability will be upon Mr. Pawan Chamling, CM Sikkim and SDM Sonam Topge Tashi only.

       We hope your good self will consider our request in the interest of nation and do the needful to restore religious practices and free access to Gurudwara GuruDongmaar by all, without any restriction in future, we shall always be grateful and oblige to you.

Pawan Chamling, CM Sikkim first forcefully evacuated Gurudwara GuruDaangmar, targetted the next at Chungthangn now gives assurance to protect them but whether Sikhs permitted to visit there?

September 5, 2017

Attempt to occupie Gurudwara by Lamas

The gurudwara Gurudaangmar is seen locked and sealed, a notice is pasted on it, Budhist flags are seen as evidence to convert Sikh religious place into Budhist place of worship in aaBudhist majority state. The engraved stone writing is also tried to remove and unreadable on Gurudwara.

I wonder how politicians change their views, their opinions, their committed sins but immediately change their stances when exposed like CM Sikkim Pawan Chamling who misused his official position and his office by taking advantage of laws enacted in 1991 and than 2001 to take over the forced control of Gurudwara GuruDangmar in Sikkim, its SDM Chungthang Sonam Topge Tashi locked and sealed the dorrs of Gurudwara, forcefully evacuated it, sacrileges the holy Guru Granth Sahib by confiscation, packing and placing in a dis-respective manner in a vehicle, its treasury box, and other religious scriptures other than holy items to be used in a Gurudwara, were taken away and brought downto 80 kms down at Gurudwara Chungthang and abondoned on the roadside in a street on 16th August 2017 before these officials moved away.

When the video shots gone viral on this disrespect, the Sikkim govt issued a Press release and its SDM Sonam Topge Tashi explained every detail in it which you can read at . Our reply is also given at same Press release in red letters.

In response, SIkkim govt tried to terrorize Sikh world by threatening and misleading the nation on encroachment of a Gurudwara Chungthang built in 1969, a tean by revenue officials other concerned agencies was sent there to measure the land. It didn’t end by scrutiny only but took a step to hurt Sikh sentiments when the Govt erected a wall in front of this Gurudwara to obstruct the visiting devotees as Sikhs are micro minority in Sikkim. The civilian sikhs may not be a dozen, if Sikhs mark their presence in this state that is due to their posting in this sensitive zone but Sikkim govt. awarded them in return of their services to this nation by forcefully occupying their Gurudwaras, inciting them to revolt.

Desecretion of SGGS-1

Yesterday in a meet with delegation of DSGMC in Delhi, Pawan kumar assured to sort out this dispute by 15th and set up a committee to loon into this dispute.

We Sikhs all over the world would like to ask him who created this dispute? His response was that it was not the state govt behind this misshapen but local Lamas. This way he wants to create tension and animosity in local Lamas and the Sikh community. If the local Lamas did it, why no action is ever taken by state govt and no arrest till date, why Gurudwara is sealed and a notice pasted?

What for and by whom?

Is this not the hypocrisy?

Why Sikh organization not file FIR in every state against CM Sikkim and SDM Chungthang on confiscation of SGGS and its abandoning roadside

August 31, 2017

This needs attention of Sikh world all over the world.

How is it possible that a Gurudwara on high altitude where pilgrimage round the year is not possible, Sikhs in micro-minority and the visitors have to obtain a permit to visit this sacred shrine built in commemorating visit of founder of Sikh religion in early 15th century, could be forcefully evacuated by broken up the locks, the present Guru of Sikh religion the Guru Granth Sahib ji is confiscated, packed in a vehicle along with all other religious scriptures and holy items before the Gurudwara is sealed, a notice is pasted on its entry gate and brought down 100 away to Chungthang and abandoned on roadside in a road/street leading to a another historical place Gurudwara Chungthang.

Desecretion of SGGS-1

The SDM Chungthang Sonam Topgay Tashi made a blunder mistake by forcefully entering the Gurudwara and confiscating all holy items including eternal present Guru of Sikh religion whom he is not even permitted to touch it. He committed sacrilege for which he can’t be forgiven. He didn’t did it by mistake but with consent of CM Sikkim who is keen to remove the Gurudwara and raise a new Budhist Monastry at its place. He (The CM) himself has confessed in a statement given on 14th July which is published in “Sikkim News” dated 15th July 2017.  He regretted that despite his offer the amount 3 times, none has come forward to build it.

Sikkim News-1

Than he announced that he has granted 50 Lac to Lachen Monastry to clean this surrounding of the lake but whether not with a mal-intention in heart to takeover the religious place of other faith? To achieve his mission game started to play with his swearing in the office of Chief Minister in 1994? Whether Lachen monastry is a cleaning agency? How many projects of cleaning at large scale it has taken over previously and whether registered with Sikkim govt. for this purpose? Whether tenders invited for this purpose?

If not than why this Lachen Monastry is chosen?

See the enlarged view of fifth column in Sikkim news,picture of page is pasted above.

Sikkim News


The answer is very simple. Guru Nanak Dev ji visited this valley in his 3rd travels. He also visited this Lachen Monastry and they honored guru Nanak by calling him ‘Rimpochey Guru Nanak of Punjab’. His Robe, Kamandal and foot prints are still preserved and few writing written by Guru Nanak ji himself. They used to display all these items to sikh pilgrimages and other visitors to Monastry. The Everest climbers have also seen them and mentioned in their memoirs and in books written by them.

Foot print of guru nanak in Lachen Monastry
Gurus belongings with Lachen Monastry
But under political influence of CM Pawan Chamling or on his instructions these holy items are no more shown to visitors now. The reason could be vested interest, monoply in region and greed of offer of money assured by CM.

I could never imagine if believers of Guru Nanak who were blessed by him, given water to be available whole year despite temperature in minus when lake gets frozen, the boon of fertile power to humans who were mostly impotent in bitter cold, have become so thankless that they have become a party with govt to abolish all memories of their savior.


This is called kaliyuga.

Though the Gurudwara is situated at inner line and on high altitude but in modern times it’s easy to reach any difficult place in any isolated place like Hemkund in Uttrakhand is also situated at 15210 feet height and pilgrims have to walk 19 kms one way to reach this place. But this Gurudwara Dongmar which could be reached by motorable road could bring more tourism in state. Millions of Sikhs go on pilgrimage in Uttrakhand at Hemkund Sahib. In my first visit to Hemkund Sahib in 1973, i had to obtain a permit for visiting this Sikh shrine but now its opened for all.

Though Hindus are also in Sikkim but have no religious significance with Dongmar lake but under the secret plan, its agencies incited Hindus who placed their flag and constructed a structure adjoining wall of Gurudwara.

Disrespect of Gurudwara by visitors

It seems CM Pawan Chamling could not digest it and he got infuriated and than he incited the local Baudhs who then slowly tried to convert this Sikh temple (Gurudwara) into Budhist temple. They ties their religious flags to give a false impression if this was a Budhist temple.

SarvDharm Sthal

Seeing this and on complaints by Sikh soldiers the Lt. Gen. HRS Kalkat took a strange decision, he converted it into SARV DHARM STHAL.

The miscreants tried to remove words ‘Sahib Gurudwara” from this engraving but easily readable and clears the mal-intention behind such malicious and condemn able act as it’s disrespect to those soldiers who visited this sacred place, prayed for victory of nation and their safe return. What did they get in lieu of it other than HUMILIATION.


but when this was noticed by Sardar Harbhajan Singh Setia in his visit in 1997. He complained with Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee in Amritsar. On receiving the complaint on such a grave error on part of Sikkim govt (Than also CM Pawan Chamling was CM Sikkim), then President Gurcharan Singh Tohra immediately called than Defense Minister George Fernandez who immediately removed these flags and the structure. and the Gurudwara was restored.

Press release

We regret that picture is not very clear but readable.

Than having bad eyes on Gurudwara two new acts introduced in 2001 to take over the Sikh Gurudwara but whether the law only made to declare this lake sacred for Budhist only? Could any state declare any place for a single religion and hurt the religious sentiments of other faiths who too have historical and religious significance with said place?

We would like to remind CM Pawan Chamling, we have scholars who have studied on Tibet and fully aware to discuss on visit of Tantrik Guru Padmasanbhav who never visited in southern Tibet and specially to Dongmar lake, no historical reference is ever provided in history books but we won’t mind if Lachen Monastry betrays and turns from Karma-pa to Padmasanbhav as they have shown their loyalty to CM Pawan Chamling not to Guru Nanak.

But we can prove that Guru Nanak ji visited this region, his travel route, his meeting in  different Monastries and to this lake also.

We shall be grateful and always be obliged to those Sikh organizations who file a criminal law suit on conspiracy, creating tension and animosity in two peace loving communities and damaging peace and harmony of state, threatening law and order  by distrust and hate among Budhist and Sikhs.

August 30, 2017


As the information is pouring out the illegal drama hatched by the Sikkim Government by misquoting the provisions of Forest Conversation Act 1991 is now open.

Chief-Minister and SDM Exceeded their Briefs
Mr.Pawan Chamling, the Chief-Minister of Sikkim and Mr. Sopnam Tobgey Tashi, SDM Chungthang have taken the shelter of perfidious lies to promote their own faith at the cost of Sikhism with following blatant lies:

(1) The army built Gurdwaras in violation of the Forest Conservation Act 1991.

(2) The place belongs to their Tantric Guru,Lama Padmasambhava.

(3) So Chief-Minister announced construction of a Monastery at Guru Dongmar and offered Rs.50,00,000/ for its construction by demolishing the Gurdwaras which existed long before.

In these announcements both Chief-Minister as well as SDM exposed themselves to public ridicule on the following counts:

(i) Both the Government Officials have casted aspersions on the noble work done by Army. Let them first file a complaint with the Chief-Of The Army Staff to do Court Martial of the concerned Army Officers,who had allegedly violated the Act as alleged by these two Government Officials.

(ii) On the contrary the provisions of the said Act provides for conservation of any place of worship which existed before August 15,1947.

(iii) We have already given plethora of documents from the books(even 300 years old) that Lama Padmasambhava never visited Sikkim during his life-times.What are the documents which these Government Officials created to put their false claim over the places,connected with Guru Nanak Dev Ji,which existed 500 years ago and on the basis of evidence available on the spot the Gurdwaras were constructed sometime in 1965-66.

(iv) Which law permitted these two Government Officials to indulge in acts of blasphemy by removing Guru Granth Sahib from the Gurdwara, when no Monastery of Lama Padmasambhava ever existed before August 15, 1947, according to law quoted by these Government Servants.

(v) When no Monastery ever existed and the Chief-Minister as well as SDM are showing unusual keen interest and undue haste in demolishing the existing religious place to promote their own faith, which is violative of Oath of Constitution which they have taken.

(vi) Why Chief-Minister and SDM are creating communal tension in a peaceful society, which existed till date to promote their personal faith by suppressing the faith of not only the Sikhs but also Karmapa Sect (Yellow Hats) who worship Guru Nanak Dev Ji as Guru Rimpoche-Precious Teacher?

Live evidence Gurudwara in Tin shed

The Gurudwara built in Tin shed by army personal, photograph taken by Col. Ranjit Singh in 1992, Sikh flag Nisan sahib is visible in this picture.

In this post more evidence is being uploaded as per details given below:

(a) Travels of Guru Nanak by Dr Surinder Singh Kohli,(1969)
published by Panjab University Chandigarh.
(b) Maj.N.S.Issar’s on the spot study in 1965, published in The Sikh Review Calcutta, January 1965, reprinted by Punjabi University, Patiala in its Journal,”Punjab:Past and Present,Vol.111,1969.
(c) Guru Nanak’s Travels to Himalayas and East Asian Region,by Col. Dalwinder Singh Grewal,(1995) along with photos.
(d) Tantric Buddhism, edited by Dr N.N.Bhattacharya.

The Chief-Minister’s conspicuous silence on SGPC’ many letters on the issue from 2015-2017 does not speak well of the intention and working of C.M.Sikkim.

Please use this revealing evidence to file complaints with Governor Sikkim,President Of India and as additional evidence to make these two Government Officials as party in the ongoing case.

It will take sometime as we will post the relevant pictures here, kindly keep watching and be tuned.



Evidence from Rashtrapati Bhawan
Do you need any other evidence that the letter from Sena Bhavan to Rashtrapati Bhawan mentioning the name of Gurudwara Dongmar to be visited for a pilgrimage?

Could the Sikkim govt deny if there was no Gurudwara and no pilgrimage to this Sikh shrine in 2000?
We were two petitioners in Supreme court by by rules only one petitioner could argue and be present in Court, so my co-petitioner, a law student from Mumbai decided to be sent to present the Sikh world there.
When The court asked state council of Sikkim to reply on issue, he concealed the facts from Court and lied before the supreme court that there was no role of State govt but of local lamas and that the matter is pending in Sikkim high court.
My co-petitioner didn’t realize the seriousness otherwise he must have brought it in the notice of Court. But i am sure if any judge reads it, he can take a sou-motto action and call the State council to clarify his position on his false statement in court.

If this was act of hooligan or by some local Lamas, why did the state govt, its police not take a stern and prompt action to arrest them? But the state govt was itself a party in it as it forcefully broke opened the locks of Gurudwara, confiscated Guru Granth Sahib ji, it’s treasury box, and other holy items, packed in a vehicle (without following any Skh Code of Conduct or legal notice), than the state agencies brought these religious articles of faith and abandoned them in a street leading to Gurudwara Chungthang 100 kms away.

Could any authority confiscate the Guru Granth Sahib ji which is bestowed present Guru of Sikh religion by last human Guru in 1708 and declared a JURISTIC PERSON by Supreme Court in India?
Pass issued by DC Mangan Sikkim
The Horns are not grown on foreheads of foolish people but they prove their foolishness by their stupidious acts only.
The DC Mangan (A place in between Gangtok and Chungthang) issued passes to 3 Sikh pilgrims in July 2017 for visiting Gurudwara Guru Dongmar but the SDM Chungthang lies with nation just after one month that there was no Gurudwara at Dongmar lake.
Comment byColonel from Chd
Army personal have come in front to produce the evidences and their visit to Gurudwara Dongmar where they prayed, made a wish of victory of nation and their safe return.
What else document do you want?

A blind can see it was Gurudwara Dongmar but CM Sikkim is not aware of it’s existence in his 24 years of ruling?

August 30, 2017

How the politicians play gimmick with people in India as misuse their official powers to create animosity in tow or more peaceful living communities for their vested interests is clearly visible in Sikkim where it’s CM Pawan Chamling is ruling since 1994.

In a recent move on 16th August, he ordered the Gurudwara Dongmar be evacuated forcefully and before that he had announced and ind invited agencies to build a new Budhist Monastry at this place which has already been revealed with evidence in our previous article at …….


In the picture above the writer Ajmer Singh Randhawa is seen with Harbhajan Singh Setia on his Right and Col. Dalvinder Singh Grewal on his left.

Both of these Gurusikhs have played a key role in building and development of the Gurudwara since 1970.

I am amazed all those senior army officers and the Regiments of Indian army whether were fooled who helped to construct the Gurudwara there and paid obeisance to Guru Nanak, bowed there before proceeding ahead on Indo-China border just 20 Kms ahead to defend the nation with a wish in mind prayed the Guru for their safe return and victory upon enemy?

Is it not jeopardized with the faith of those soldiers?

Is India also going to be called and known as a Thankless nation to it’s martyrs and strong Sikh army presently deployed in Sikkim and Bhutan?

It should have not been mentioned but i feel it a compulsion to remind CM Sikkim and others biased officers of Sikkim administration the fate of Indira Gandhi who invaded the  highest Seat of Sikh faith at Darbar Sahib also known as Golden Temple and demolished the Akal Takhat in 1984. They must refrain and not play with hurting Sikh religious sentiments otherwise any untoward incident can happen in future.  We wish the brotherhood in both peaceful communities and social bond be developed not destroyed. Sikkim administration must contribute in developing good social relations in Sikhs and Budhists.

I am pasting many pictures of Gurudwara Dongmar below which shows and proves the Gurudwara is there for nearly seven decades before Sikkim was merged in India in 1974.

Its more painful and humiliating when we shall have to produce these photographs and other relevant evidences in Court to prove existence of Gurudwara and its historical importance. It’s the moral and constitutional duty of both the state and center govts. to protect the religious historical places and monuments which gives us evidence of our glorious past. Today the Sikkim govt. has forcefully evacuated the Gurudwara and sacrilege the Guru Granth Sahib deliberately and the matter is in the court now which will decide the fate of Gurudwara, tomorrow it can be repeated in other states away from Punjab where Sikhs are outnumbered and have no strength to fight with state govts.

Whether Sikkim going to begun attack on secular system of India by destroying evidences of visit of GuruNanak in far east in Himalaya? It may try 100 times but they won’t succeed as more revelation through study of travel guru Nanak ji are revealed.

We have a number of evidences on visit of Guru Nanak Dev ji in this region.

View the pictures and judge yourself whether we Sikhs not facing discrimination, racism and a threat on our religion in India?




In this picture you can see the engraved words GURUDWARA SAHIB and the year  are tried to remove but clearly visible. That proves signs of Gurudwara are tried to remove permanently with consent of Sikkim govt and it’s CM Pawan Chamling.


Why does the Sikkim govt not contact the 376 Field Company which certified the work of construction of bulding Gurudwara Dongmar as shown above in this pic?


The Old Gurudwara in a hutment early seventy, the flag Nissan sahib, a sign of Sikh sovereignity is seeing unfurled at Gurudwara Dongmar, Sikkim


In the pic above, the Budhist flags hanging at Gurudwara proves that attempts were being made under a selective plan to convert Gurudwara Dongamar into a Budhist Monastry.


The Sikh Temple (Gurudwara) at Dongmar where Budhist flags tied are clearly visible which shows the  malintention of Sikkim administration and the locals who are provoked to do so.


The unfurled Nissan Sahib and the constructed Gurudwara Dongmar is clearly visible to which biased and blind but racist Sikkim govt needs evidence if Gurudwara ever existed?


In this picture above, you can the engraved memories of Regiments and either helped in construction or paid obeisance, bowed here and wished for their victory while going on front and their safe return.

Whether Sikkim govt wants to abolish all signs of visit and prayers of Indian soldiers at this holiest Gurudwara built in commemoration of visit of founder of Sikh religion-the first Guru of Sikh religion_Guru Nanak Dev ji?

Evidence of building Budhist Monastry after demolishing Sikh Temple(Gurudwara) at Dongmar-Sikkim

August 29, 2017

In my previous post, i alleged that Sikkkim Govt is turning the status of Sikkim as a Budhist state following footsteps in its neighborhood at Darziling where people struggle for a Gorkhaland.

Kindly see :

Now i am pasting here a picture of Sikkim News dated 15th July 2017, in which the CM Pawan Chamling clearly states that he tried to give money three times to build a Monastry at Dongmaar but nobody came forward to accept this offer.

Kindly see the evidence here as below;

Sikkim News-1

The enlarged view of this statement in Vth Column as;

Sikkim News

On the other side, Pawan Chamling had announced Rs. 50 Lacs for the cleaning of Doaangmaar (Dongmaar) lake to Budhist Monastry. 

May i ask him if Lachen Monastry is registered and authorized as cleaning agency or whether he invited tenders to get the cleaning of surroundings of the Dongmar lake? If not, than how could he give such a big amount to a religious body this amount and engage him at his own will? Whether in the name of cleaning, his agencies not engaged in forcefully evacuating the Gurudwara which appears a throne in eyes of Pawan Chamling and his administration?

See how conspiracy was made in CM Office since 2001 and new law enacted to remove all signs of visit of Guru Nanak Dev ji in Sikkim so first attempt is made at Daangmaar (Dongmar) lake. In this relevance the CM office changed the historical name Dongmar to DONGMA and next they are eyeing on Gurudwara Chungthang. For this purpose the name of Chungthang is also changed.

The Sikkim govt said in a Press release that the religious structure at Gurudongma built by the Army was in violation of the Forest Conservation Act and in contravention of the Places of Worship (Special Provisions) Act 1991 which provides for prohibition of conversion of any place of worship and provides for the maintenance of the religious character of any place of worship as it existed on the 15th Day of August 1947.

For reference, kindly visit;

Press release-1


Press release

Whether building a new Monastry at Dangmar lake could be permitted and the acts not violated but the already built Gurudwara was a thorne in eyes which is forcefully evacuated by misusing their powers?

and than on 16th August SDM Chungthang Sonam Topgay Tashi forcefully break opened the locks of Gurudwara, confiscated the sarup of Guru Granth Sahib, its treasury box. other holy scriptures and the relevant religious items to be used in reciting Gurbani and doing parkash (Enlightenment) of Guru Granth Sahib ji daily in a Gurudwara.

He confiscated these items and brought them down to Chungthang and abondoned them at outside the another historical Gurudwara on the roadside in a street leading to Gurudwara.

This way, he caused great disrespect to Guru of Sikh religion and hurt the religious sentiments of billions of followers. The office of CM Sikkim and SDM Sonam Topgay Tashi have misused the official powers given to them through constitution. It’s the duty of state govt and the Govt of India to protect religious historical places and monument but Sikkim govt deliberately violated it and jeopardized with a section of society.

We have records on Travels of Guru Nanak in far Himalayas. Guru Nanak ji also visited the Lachen Monastry at Dongmar and his Kamandal (Bowl), Foot prints and the robe still preserved with Lachen Monastry which the proudly shown the Everest climbers.

Guru Nanak on the roof of the world

And kindly view the belongings of Guru Nanak Dev ji preserved at Lachen Monastry at Gurudwara Daangmaar (Dongmar) which are now not shown to visitors under a secret mission to take control of whole lake under Lachen Monastry.

Belongings of Guru Nanak being displayed at Lachen Monastry

Now these belongings of Guru Nanak Dev ji are not shown to visitors but whether they will be able to hide the truth when these holy items have already been viewed by many of us at Lachen Monastry?

Is it not their thanklessness?

It’s important to note that an important characteristic of the teachings of the Sikh Gurus is their emphasis upon the message, the Bani. It is this stress which made possible the transfer of Guruship to the scripture. The human Gurus were the instruments through whom the voice of God became audible. The holiest book of the Sikhs is Guru Granth Sahib compiled by the Fifth Master, Guru Arjan. After giving his followers a central place of worship, Hari-Mandir, he wanted to give them a holy book. So he collected the hymns of the first four Gurus and to these he added his own. Now this Sri Guru Granth Sahib is a living Guru of the Sikhs. Guru means the guide. Guru Granth Sahib gives light and shows the path to the suffering humanity. Wherever a believer in Sikhism is in trouble or is depressed he reads hymns from the Granth. The Gurudwara at Gurudongmar Lake have always shown light and hope to pilgrims and \army personals posted in the area.

In such an inhospitable area at such a high altitude the hymns from the Granth would provide hope, courage and life to the army personal defending our border where China is barely 20 kms away. It is believed that whenever the Sikhs needed guidance or counsel, they should assemble before the Granth. The noble ideas embodied in the Granth would live for ever and show people the path to bliss and happiness.

एक अद्वितीय रिटायर्ड जनरल और साथी? सिर्फ , २००-२५० सिख युवा लड़ाके, मुकाबले पर एक लाख भारतीय सेना जिसके छक्के छुड़ा दिए!

August 27, 2017

Major General Shabeg Singh

सुबेग सिंहभारतीय सेना का एक रिटायर्ड जनरल जिसने अकेले ने दरबार साहिब परिक्षेत्र में ऐसी व्यूह रचना की कि आपरेशन ब्लू स्टार के दौरान भारतीय जनरलों के पसीने छुड़वा दिए थे!

Shahid Geneal Subeg Singh

शहीद जनरल सुबेग सिंह जी का मृत्युपरांत तस्वीर! 

जिस काम को अंजाम देने के लिए भारतीय फौज ने (HQ) में बैठ कर व्यूह रचना की थी और इंदिरा को आशवस्त किया था कि वे अकाल तखत को आधे घंटे में फ़तेह कर लेंगे और भिंडरांवाले को गिरफ्तार कर लेंगे! अकाली नेताओं ने भी यही सोचा था कि फौज देख कर ये नौसीखिए युवा सिख लड़ाके भाग जायेंगे या फौज इन्हें ख़त्म कर देगी!

वे भी भौंचक्के रह गए थे!

जनरल सुबेग सिंह ने बांगला देश की मुक्ति वाहिनी को भी प्रशिक्षित किया था ! वे गुरिल्ला युद्ध के माहिर थे! उन्हें जान बूझ कर रिटायर होने से एक दिन पूर्व बेइजत करके फौज से निष्काषित कर दिया गया था, जिससे वे भारतीय फौज के इन अफसरों को सबक भी सिखाना चाहते थे! उन्हें स्वर्णिम अवसर प्राप्त हुआ जब उनकी मुलाकात संत जरनैल सिंह जी से हुई! उन्हें यह मालूम था कि इंदिरा गन्दी दरबार साहिब पर फौजी आक्रमण की योजना बना रही है अत: उन्होंने संत जी से मिलकर ऐसी रणनीति तैयार की जिसके आगे विशाल भारतीय फौज बेबस साबित हुई!

एक अकेले सिख रिटायर्ड जनरल ने २००-२५० सिखों को (हर उम्र के) ऐसा प्रशिक्षण दिया कि उन्होंने न सिर्फ भारतीय फौज को ७२ घंटों तक एक इंच भी आगे नहीं बढ़ने दिया अपितु फौज का इतना भारी नुक्सान किया जितना उसे पाकिस्तान और चीन के साथ हुए युद्धों में कुल मिला कर भी नहीं हुआ था! इतना ही नहीं, इन गैर पेशेवर फौजी प्रशिक्षण प्राप्त सिख युवकों ने भारतीय पैदल सेना (Infantry division) को सरेंडर होने को भी मजबूर कर दिया!

मेजर जनरल कुलदीप बरार ने भी अपनी पुस्तकसाका नीला तारामें स्वीकार किया है कि भारतीय फौज के १५३०७ जवान शहीद हुए और १७८९७ जवान जख्मी, ४३ अफसर भी शहीद

1984 statistics of Operation Bluestar

इतना भारी नुकसान तो भारत को इसके समस्त युध्दों के सम्मिलित परिणाम से भी ज्यादा था! लेफ्टिनेंट जनरल सूंदर जी ने भी चंडीगढ़ में ६ जून १९८४ को ही एक प्रेस सम्मेलन में स्वीकारा था कि उसकी २०% फौज मारी गयी थी! अमृतसर में भारतीय जनरलों ने एक लाख फौज को लगाया था!

यह दोनों ही स्वीकारोक्तियां एक दूसरे की पूरक हैं और सच्चाई बयान करती हैंजब भारतीय फौज के जनरलों ने देखा कि इन्फैंट्री बेबस हो गयी है और २०० मीटर का फासला तो दूर,, अपनी जगह से एक इंच भी आगे नहीं जा सकी है तो उन्होंने अपनी इज़्ज़त बचाने की खातिर, (नहीं तो वे यह जंग हार चुके थे), भारी हथियारों, तोपों और टैंकों को लाने का हुक्म दिया!क्या आप कल्पना भी कर सकते हैं कि मुट्ठी भर सिखों को पराजित करने के लिए इन विनाशक हथियारों को, जिनका प्रयोग सिर्फ दुश्मन देश से युद्ध में ही होता है, को अकाल तख्त में आखिरी बचे १४ सिखों को मारने के लिए किया गया और फिर पवित्र अकाल तख़्त को ही निशाना बना दिया गया!कारगिल युद्ध में पाकिस्तान ने ऊंची चोटियों पर कब्ज़ा कर लिया था, उनको खदेड़ने के लिए युद्ध हुआ लेकिन भारतीय वायु सेना की सेवाएं नहीं ली गईं! क्योंकि भारत पडोसी देश से युद्ध नहीं करना चाहता था लेकिन अपने ही देशवासियों को मारने के लिए टैंकों का प्रयोग भारत द्वारा शायद सिर्फ अमृतसर में ही किया गया था!

 भारतीय सेना के जनरलों ने इंदिरा गाँधी को आशवस्त किया था कि वे आधे घंटे में ही दरबार साहिब क्षेत्र पर कब्जा कर लेंगे और अकाल तख्त से संत जरनैल सिंह को जिन्दा या मुर्दा गिरफ्तार कर लेंगे ! इंदिरा गाँधी ने भारतीय सेना के प्रमुख जनरल ए के वैद्य को यह आदेश दिया था…..

“I don’t give a damn if the Golden Temple and whole of Amritsar are destroyed, I want Bhindranwale dead.”

(Indira Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister, communicating with Gen. Vaidya during “Operation Blue Star”)

मुझे कोई परवाह नहीं कि यदि स्वर्ण मन्दिर और संपूर्ण अमृतसर भी तबाह हो जाये, मुझे भिंडरांवाला मुर्दा चाहिए

(भारतीय प्रधान मंत्री इंदिरा गाँधी ने जनरल वैद्य के साथ अपनी बातचीत में आपरेशन ब्लू स्टार के दौरान यह शब्द कहे थे)!’

अब यदि अमृतसर तबाह होता तो क्या वे हिन्दू परिवार, जिन्होंने दरबार साहिब पर आक्रमण करने जाती हुई फौज का स्वागत किया था, अकाल तख़्त को तोड़े जाने और संत भिंडरांवाले, जनरल सुबेग सिंह के मारे जाने पर लड्डू बांटे थे, खुशियां मनाईं थीं. क्या वे बच जाते ?

मूर्ख  पंजाबी हिन्दू, पड़ोस में युद्ध हो रहा था और वे खुशियां मना रहे थे!

सिख युवकों का अनुपम शौर्य और परास्त भारतीय सेना

सिख युवकों के शौर्य के आगे भारतीय सेना की इन्फैंट्री डिविजन (पैदल सेना) ने हथियार डाल दिए थे! ७२ घंटे तक चली इस कार्रवाई में संसार की श्रेष्ठतम सेनाओं में से एक जिसने पाकिस्तान को इस से पहले तीन बार धूल चटाई थी — आज मुट्ठी भर सिख युवकों के शौर्य के आगे विवश थी!

 दरबार साहिब स्थित घंटा घर से श्री अकाल तखत तक का फासला लगभग २०० मीटर है! भारतीय जनरलों को विश्वास था कि वे आधे घंटे में इस कार्रवाई को अंजाम दे देंगे परन्तु ७२ घंटे तक भी यह विशाल सेना २०० मीटर का फासला तय नही कर पाई थी! ऐसे प्रतिरोध का सामना करना पड़ा  था भारतीय सेना को सपने में भी उसे यह उम्मीद न थी कि मुट्ठी भर सिख युवक, भारतीय सेना की बढत रोक देंगे  परन्तु सिखों में शहीदी का चाव जन्म से ही होता है—-वे अपने गुरु के वचन का पालन करते हुए मैदाने जंग में शहीद होना और गुरु को अपना सिर भेंट करने में गौरव महसूस करते हैं! सिख लड़ रहे थे तो आततायियों की सेना से जिसने उनके पवित्रतम धार्मिक स्थान को नेस्तनाबूद करने की ठानी थी !अत: आतताइयों की इस फौज से लड़ कर शहीद होना, अपने धार्मिक स्थान की रक्षा के लिए अपने प्राणों की आहुति देना, अपने गुरु गोबिंद सिंह जी के प्रति अपनी वचन-बद्धता निभानी और अपने गुरु के महावाक्य — सवा लाख से एक लड़ाऊँ !! तभै गोबिंद सिंह नाम कहाऊँ !!’ को चरितार्थ करते हुए शहीदी का जाम पीना गौरव समझते थे जबकि भारतीय सेना तो अपनी आका इंदिरा माता को खुश करने के लिए लड़ रहे थे !

 दोनों की लड़ाई का उद्देश्य भी अलग था !  

 भारतीय सेना के जनरलों द्वारा आपरेशन ब्लू स्टार की रण – नीति  बनाते हुए सिखों के पांचवें गुरु अर्जुन देव जी के शहीदी पर्व को जान-बूझ कर चुना गया था क्योंकि उस दिन श्रद्धालु बहुत अधिक संख्या में गुरूद्वारे में एकत्रित होते हैंऔर इस दिन भारतीय सेना द्वारा गुरूद्वारे पर आक्रमण करने के उनको दो फायदे होने थे;

 पहला –  अधिक श्रद्धालु एकत्रित होने से फौज को उनकी आड़ में दरबार साहिब की परिक्रमा से होते हुए श्री अकाल तखत साहिब जी तक पहुंचना आसान हो जाता,

दूसरा – फौज गोली चलाती तो भी मरना तो सिखों ने ही था, चाहे वे संत जरनैल सिंह जी के साथी  धार्मिक प्रवर्ति वाले सिख हों या श्रद्धालु सिख !

इंदिरा का भी तो यही आदेश था कि सिखों को चाहे जितनी संख्या में मारना पड़े परन्तु वे अकाल तखत पर आक्रमण कर के संत जरनैल सिंह जी को मारना चाहती थी ! तो इस  तरह फौज इन श्रद्धालु सिखों की आड़ में अपने को बचाती हुई श्री अकाल तखत साहिब जी पर आक्रमण करना चाहती थी! फौज जंग के मैदान में भी भेड़-बकरी या अन्य पशुओं की आड़ में धावा बोलती है, जिससे इन्हें जानी नुकसान होने का अंदेशा कम होता है !

 यहाँ भी भारतीय फौज के जनरलों ने यही सोचा था कि वे भी अपने सैनिकों को सिख संगतों (श्रद्धालुओं) की आड़ में से होते हुए आधे घंटे में ही श्री अकाल तखत साहिब जी को घेर लेंगे और सफलता हासिल कर लेंगे क्योंकि सिख योद्धे अपने ही भाइयों, बहनों या बच्चों की हत्याएं नहीं करेंगे! परन्तु भीतर भी सिख योद्धे गुरिल्ला लड़ाई में निपुण तथा हर कौशल में कुशल थे, उन्होंने भारतीय फौज के धावे को एक दम खत्म कर दिया, करीबन सारे ही फौजी जो भीतर घुसे थे, पार बुला दिए गये थे!

अकाल तखत साहिब जी पर कब्ज़ा करने की लड़ाई ७२ घंटे चली परन्तु भारतीय सेना की पैदल सेना जब फेल हो गई और एक कदम भी आगे नहीं बढ पाई तो उन्हें ले जाने के लिए APC व्हीकल (बख्तरबंद गाड़ी) मंगाई गई परन्तु सिख लड़ाकू योद्धाओं  ने इस बख्तर बंद गाड़ी को भी उड़ा दिया !

अब भारतीय फौज के जनरलों के पसीने छूट गये! जिस लड़ाई को अपने अहं में उन्होंने मात्र आधे घंटे की सोची थी, उस लड़ाई में उन्हें जो जानी नुकसान उठाना पड़ा और फजीहत अलग से, इंदिरा को विश्वास अलग से दिलाया था कि आधे घंटे में फौजी कार्रवाई पूरी हो जाएगी, उसका तो कहीं अंत ही नजर नहीं आ रहा था! अब पैदल सेना के बस की बात नहीं रह गई थी, अत: अब जनरलों ने इंदिरा से टैंक इस्तेमाल करने की इजाजत मांगी जबकि मार्क तुली (बी बी सी संवाददाता) के अनुसार श्री अकाल तखत में केवल आखिरी १४ सिख ही शेष बचे थे परन्तु भारतीय पैदल सेना (इन्फंट्री) इतनी हतोत्साहित थी कि उसमें अब इतना दम नहीं था कि इन सिख योद्धाओं से मुकाबला कर पाती अत: भारी तोपखाने के इस्तेमाल से श्री अकाल तख्ता साहिब की पवित्र और एतिहासिक इमारत को ही टैंकों के गोलों का निशाना बना दिया गया, इस इमारत को नेस्तनाबूद कर दिया गया!

सारा संसार स्तब्ध था परन्तु सिख जगत मजबूर था! उनकी ऑंखें तो रोती थीं परन्तु आंसू सूख गये थे! उन्हें काटो तो खून नहीं था! उनका बस चलता तो अलग सिख देश उसी दिन बन जता! नफरत की आंधी भी चली थी! आक्रोश था सिख जगत में इंदिरा और भारतीय सेना के खिलाफ, अत; सिख जगत ने कटु फैसला लिया!

इन मुट्ठी भर सिख युवकों का अंत तो निश्चित ही था क्योंकि सेना की तरह इनके पास भारी हथियार न थे, कुमुक नहीं थी, रसद नहीं थी, पानी नहीं था, बिजली नहीं थी, खाने को कुछ भी न था, जून महीने की भयंकर गर्मी में भी वे विचलित नहीं हुए, यदि सेना की तरह सहूलियत होती तो निश्चित ही वे भारतीय सेना को मार मार कर यमुना पार करवा देते! बहादुरी में में वे भारतीय सेना से सवाये ही साबित हुए हैं, भले ही उनमें से कोई जीवित नहीं बचा लेकिन किसी ने अपनी जान बचाने के लिए आत्म समर्पण भी नहीं किया क्योंकि युद्ध में वीरगति प्राप्त करना सिखों के लिए गौरव की बात है!

मैं इन सभी सिख युवकों को, संत भिंडरांवाले और उनके सहयोगियों तथा जनरल सुबेग सिंह जी और प्रत्येक शहीद को जो भारतीय फौज की नृशंसता का शिकार हुआ, उन सभी को जिन्होंने अपने धर्म की रक्षा हेतु अपने प्राण न्योछावर किये, के श्री चरणों में सादर प्रेम सहित श्रद्धा सुमन अर्पित करता हूँ!

Jinda & Sukha

दो सिख योद्धाओं (भाई हरजिंदर सिंह जिन्दा और भाई सुखदेव सिंह सुक्खा ने) ने भारतीय फौज के प्रधान सेनापति और इंदिरा के चाटुकार जनरल अरुण कुमार वैद्य को पूना में गोलियों से उड़ा दिया!

The truth on Operation Blue star as so far only falsehood is propagated by Indian govt. and its army

August 26, 2017

Carvan published an interview of Col. Israr khan who lead the troops (10 Guard) in Darbar sahhib by Hartoshh Bal.

Here is the analysis of this interview, kinldy see how this Muslim officer tried to hide the facts and propagated only falsehood?


Akal Takhat stormed

The stormed Akal Takhat- a gift of Indian army to Sikh world


On this night in 1984, the Golden Temple in Amritsar was stormed by Indian army troops. They had been summoned by Indira Gandhi to disarm and dislodge Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale—head of the Damdami Taksaal, a prominent insurgent voice in the orthodox Sikh community and a former ally of the Congress—who was operating from and residing in the Darbar Sahib Complex. While the intent of Operation Bluestar, as this was termed, was to clear Bhindranwale’s armed insurgents from the premises of the Golden Temple, the operation took a devastating turn. In this excerpt from ‘The Shattered Dome,’ from our May 2014 issue, Hartosh Singh Bal reports on the violent events that transpired that night.

According to the memoir of PC Alexander, principal secretary to the Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi made up her mind to summon the army on 25 May, relying on the reassurances of General AS Vaidya, chief of the army staff. Vaidya explained that he would move troops into different locations in Punjab simultaneously, surrounding gurdwaras occupied by extremists and cutting off their supplies and movement. A similar siege would be mounted around the Golden Temple, with a large number of troops. Alexander writes that Gandhi “repeatedly told the general that in any operation no damage should be done to the temple buildings and particularly to the Harmandir Sahib.” Vaidya assured her that there would be “a maximum show of force, but a minimum use of it.”

Vaidya met with Gandhi again on 29 May, and suggested some changes in the plan. They would ensure that the temple would not be damaged—but they would need to enter it. This proposal was the result of Vaidya’s meeting with Lieutenant General K Sundarji, who had direct command of operations. Alexander writes that Vaidya convinced Gandhi that he had weighed the pros and cons of the plan with his senior colleagues; they had all agreed that a siege would prolong the operation and destabilise the surrounding countryside.

“Vaidya spoke with such confidence and calmness that the new plan he was proposing appeared to be the only option open to the Army,” Alexander writes. “I can definitely state on the basis of the clear knowledge of Indira Gandhi’s thinking at that time that she agreed to the revision of the earlier plan at the eleventh hour strictly on the assurance given to her that the whole operation would be completed swiftly and without any damage to the buildings within the Golden temple complex.”

A week later, on the night of 5 June, Lieutenant Colonel Israr Rahim Khan commanded the first batch of troops that stormed the Darbar Sahib complex.

Khan reported directly to Major General Kuldip Singh “Bulbul” Brar, who was in overall command of the operation and in touch with Sundarji. (The major general, like Bhindranwale, was a Brar Jatt, and the two men came from villages close to each other’s, but there the similarities between them ended. Brar came from a distinguished military family, and the gulf of class and education between him and Bhindranwale was deep; he had little time for the sort of orthodoxy Bhindranwale espoused.)

(Here Khan calls this Sikh preacher Sant jarnail Singhh Bhindranwala who was master in religious studies if not in worldly education. Who so ever came to interview him or visited to know his views always got so impressed that he became his follower like Swami Subramaniyam, Farooq Abdullah and so on).

When I met him in his home, Khan, who retired as a brigadier, at first said he had little to add to Brar’s account of the operation, published in his 1993 book Operation Bluestar—The True Story. I said I wanted to hear a view from the ground, from a soldier who was actually part of the operation.

In spite of his greying hair, it was easy to see in Khan the dashing soldier Brar had sent into the complex. Once he began to speak, it was evident he remembered the action as though it had taken place yesterday. “From our debussing area, near Jallianwalla Bagh”—the famous park is a short distance away from the Darbar Sahib—“we were to approach the Darshan Deori, the main entrance. We were in the open, and they”—Bhindranwale’s men—“were all secure, with their weapon emplacements in place. There was not an inch of ground in the gully outside the Darshan Deori that was not covered by the firing.”
(In fact Darshani Deori is known the gates from where devotees enter the main sanctum sanctorum Darbar sahib in middle of thhe sacred pond. this place whichh is referred by Col. israr Khan is known as Ghantaghar).

Shahbeg Singh’s plan of defence for the Darbar Sahib was so effective that, three decades later, Khan recalled it with something like admiration. The complex was guarded by an outer ring of emplacements positioned on the vantage points of its high buildings—the Hotel Temple View on one side, and the gumbads, or domes, on the other—and an inner ring on the parikrama, within the temple itself. At the Darshan Deori, Khan and his men descended the stairs into the complex unaware of loopholes in the walls that had been turned, he said, into “weapon pits.”

“My boys were climbing down the stairs in the darkness, because the electricity was cut. It was totally dark, and we were wondering where this fire was coming from. It takes a little time to think. It was coming from under the stairs.” The bullets hit Khan’s soldiers below the knee. “The boys,” he said, “fell tumbling down.”

The memory made Khan pause. “In which war have we suffered such heavy casualties?” he asked. “From my battalion, in the first hour—from 10.30 to 11.30 at night—we had already lost nineteen. In the ’71 war, in Shakargarh sector, I tell you, Hartosh, in the whole ten to fifteen days, my battalion, the 10 Guards, lost four men. What a gruesome battle it was in the Golden Temple.”

The army was hemmed in at close quarters, in a heavily built-up area—which meant, Khan said, that there was no way collateral damage could be avoided. “I read somewhere that Mrs Gandhi was told there would be no casualties. No person in the right frame of mind would give such an assurance to the PM.”

If there were any expectations that the security forces would meet no resistance, they were rendered utterly false. “They knew,” Khan said. “How can you build brick and mortar key emplacements overnight? It was beautifully planned. You could not close up anywhere near the temple without being hit by a bullet.”

 “The commandos were grouped with me. A company each of the SFF”—the R&AW unit, the Special Frontier Force —“and 1 Para Commando was grouped with 10 Guards. We were to give them safe passage through the parikrama, until the periphery of the Akal Takht, and they were meant to capture Bhindranwale from the Akal Takht. So I grouped them, with my leading company going ahead. We entered first and made place for them to enter. We gave them a safe corridor through the parikrama till the end. There were twelve rooms in a row; we kept clearing, room by room by room.” Every room was manned.

(As per the statements given by eye witnesses I find Israr Khan giving an account of operation on night of 5th June Before that army had taken over whole complex other then Akal Takhat.
Khan also admits that he cleared the room by room which were all manned It was only massacre of stranded pilgrims who had taken shelter in those rooms to save their lives It was duty of army to save their lives but killer Indian army was on mission to suppress Sikh nation so it brutally murdered all the unarmed but innocent pilgrims inside those rooms and in the complex).

By 1 am, Khan says, his company had captured the northern wing of the parikrama and opened it up to the special forces, but they were unable to make headway. “The moment they would close up near the Akal Takht they would come under heavy fire. They were very badly mauled. So they would fall back on the parikrama, and get in touch with Bulbul to tell him that they had lost so many men.”

“I won’t blame them professionally. Their men were dying, and all the fire was coming at them. But why some other methods were not adopted, or what they had rehearsed, is not known to me.”

At two o’clock in the morning, Brar called. “Bulbul told me on the set: ‘Israr, have a Carl Gustav’”—an anti-tank missile—“‘fired at the dome of the Akal Takht and see what effect it has.’ I set up the Carl Gustav myself; I couldn’t take anyone else’s report for granted. From the first floor, which we had captured, I fired a Carl Gustav and—Hartosh, can you believe it, what a beautiful building it was, that dome was so strong—it just ricocheted like a .303 bullet being fired into that wall. Even that leaves a one-inch dent; but nothing was visible on that dome.” Khan radioed back to tell Brar that the missile had had no effect.

“Then I don’t know what transpired between the special forces and Bulbul, that they found no other way. They were scared that after sunrise, all of Punjab would surround the Golden Temple. So whatever had to be achieved, had to be achieved before dawn. They decided on rolling down three tanks inside, and eventually used the main gun of the tank. It pierced through the dome, and there were gaping holes. That was a horrific sight. My own assessment now is that if the main gun of the tank had not been used, perhaps the Sikh psyche wouldn’t have been hurt so much.”

Almost every commitment that Vaidya made to the prime minister went unkept. The operation took at least a full night; it resulted in the decimation of the Akal Takht; and the casualties far outstripped any estimate Gandhi had been given. There are still no credible explanations for why no intelligence on the situation was available or forthcoming to the army. Neither are there answers for why the army did not ask for more time to plan, especially as an operation at the Darbar Sahib had been under consideration since February.

(Either Khan hiding the facts or tryig to give a cover by speaking false on preparation time army was given to attack. Genral SK Sinha disclosed in his book “Last resorts” that army was giving special training to its soldiers in Chakrata near Dehra Dun 18 months prior to the invasion on Darbar sahib than how much more time it wanted?

It’s the same army which was ordered to prepare and then air dropped in just six hours to Sri Lanka in 1985?)

In 1984, the day marking the martyrdom of Guru Arjan fell on 3 June, two days before Operation Bluestar began. The choice to begin hostilities on 5 June was highly problematic, because a curfew had been imposed around the complex days before the attack, effectively trapping a large number of pilgrims, who had nothing to do with the militants, inside the temple.

(Why the curfew was imposed and trapped pilgrims were not permitted to come out of Darbar Sahib, the intention of army is clearly mentioned here. It trapped them in large numbers so that in operation army may use them as a cover to move to capture Akal Takhat these trapped pilgrims were thus killed in cross firing in periphery other then killed by granade attack in rooms where they had taken the shelter).

(This strategy of army is well explained in the bottom at “Valor of Sikh youths and defeat of indian army” and cleared why the army chose auspicious day of martyrdom day of fifth guru Aran dev ‘s martyrdom day for attack).

Indira Gandhi had given such orders to General Vaidya, the Commanding officer in chief of Indian army as; 

“I don’t give a damn if the Golden Temple and whole of Amritsar are destroyed, I want Bhindranwale dead.” (Indira Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister, communicating with Gen. Vaidya during “Operation Blue Star”)

Over the years, evidence has emerged of crimes committed within the premises by security forces. Brigadier Onkar Goraya’s 2013 book, Operation Bluestar and After, An Eyewitness Account, provides, for the first time, some clarity on the number of pilgrims inside the complex during the operation. Goraya, the head of the Admin branch of the 15th Infantry division posted in Punjab, was tasked with “lifting civilian casualties, disposal of the dead and evacuation of the wounded to the hospitals, apprehending the militants, guarding them in make-shift jails in the Cantonment, and arranging for their logistics.” He placed the casualties, based on the number of bodies disposed, at seven hundred, and stated that another 2,200 persons were rounded up and interned.

(Here Goraya also lies, the exact number may not be possible to reveal but approximate and very near to actual is obtained. There were 10,000 innocent pilgrims killed inside the Darbar sahib periphery other than those killed in surrounding buildings as these figure was taken from shoe store (Joda Ghar) where every devotee deposit his/her shoes before entering the sacred sanctorum. There were 10.000 unclaimed shoes inside this joda ghar whose claimanants never returned to claim. Nearly 15,000 innocent pilgrims were killed in Darbar Sahib complex only).

Even by the most exaggerated count, Bhindranwale’s men numbered no more than 250. Were they all counted among the dead, with another hundred from other militant organisations included for good measure, it would mean that, even by the most conservative estimate, the operation resulted in the deaths of over 350 people who had nothing at all to do with Bhindranwale. Considering that many people slipped out of the complex through the numerous doors leading to alleyways surrounding it, it is safe to say the number of people inside was far higher than the three thousand or so accounted for by the numbers of those dead, injured or captured.

The army has consistently maintained that pilgrims inside the complex were given ample opportunity to leave. But Goraya makes it clear that most never heard the army’s requests to surrender and come out. A day before the operation began, he found a district administration van outside the complex broadcasting announcements in Punjabi: “All those who are stranded inside the Darbar Sahib complex are requested to come out with their hands raised above their head. They will not be fired at.” The van was parked eighty yards from the main entrance. “The devotees and pilgrims, for whose benefit the announcements were being made, were well beyond its reach,” Goraya writes.

The scene within the complex after the operation was gruesome. Goraya writes of the stench of rotting bodies in the June heat: the task of disposing of them was so onerous that the municipal workers who eventually cleared them away did so only because they were permitted to strip the bodies of their belongings. The bodies of Bhindranwale and Shahbeg Singh were recovered from the basement of the Akal Takht on the morning of 7 June, almost two days after the operation began. Bhindranwale’s body was identified by his brother and quickly cremated in the presence of a few officers and jawans.

Goraya’s book confirms an allegation of long standing: that security forces shot at least a few men in cold blood. Evidence has already been published of at least one execution: a 2006 book by Harminder Kaur – Blue star over Amritsar – contains the post-mortem report of a young man shot through the chest with his hands tied behind his back. Goraya’s story strengthens the claim that there were multiple killings of this kind. “On 7th June, around mid-day, I saw about 90 detainees sitting on the hot marble floor of the Southern wing of Parikrama,” he writes. “They were naked except for the long underwear and their hands were tied behind their backs.

 (We have eye witness accounts how army personals killed the amritdhari Sikhs wearing all five mandatory signs of Sikh faith in cold blood by tying their hands at their back and shot them in frustration as army suffered very heavy loss. The casualities it had in operation Blue star was much much higher than combined loss of lives it had in all three maor wars fought against China and Pakistan).

“Most of them appeared to be militants. Though subjugated they retained their defiant spirit. Instead of looking down, some of them dared to look into the eyes of their captors. A second Lieutenant of the unit who had fought these militants the previous night and lost a few comrades, could not stomach such defiance. When he asked them to look down one of them spat at him. The officer lost his cool and shot him in the forehead.”

(That shows the hate of Sikhs towards invading army which attacked their supreme shrine and killed the innocent, the Sikh youth was certainly fearless as he was sure that he will be killed so he spat in extreme hate and conveyed his message before he was shot.

Kudos to that fearless Sikh).

On 23 June, when Indira Gandhi visited the Darbar Sahib for the first time after the operation, Goraya was at the tail end of the group surrounding her as she walked around the parikrama. As she looked at the Akal Takht, Goraya claims, she said to General Sundarji beside her: “I didn’t ask you to do this.”

Valor of Sikh youths and the defeat of Indian army ;

            The infantry division of Indian army had surrendered before the valiant Sikh youths. The fierce fight which was fought continuously for nearly 72 hrs. had stopped the advance of a mighty and best army in world which had earlier defeated Pakistan and captured its 93000 soldiers, was not able to fight with these handful Sikh youths.

            The distance from Clock tower entrance to Sri Akal Takhat in complex of Darbar sahib is hardly 200 meters. The Army generals were sure to take over the Akal Takhat within half an hour but this largest army which had already covered up whole of Punjab, couldn’t cover this distance of merely 200 meters for 72 hrs, it marked a question on their valor. It had to face such a heavy resistance.

The Indian army could never think of such stiff resistance, it had not thought the handful Sikh youths who were not properly trained shall stop the mighty Indian army. The Generals of Indian army had forgot that the Sikhs have a charm to get martyrdom since their childhood and they feel proud to offer their heads to their Guru and getting martyred in battlefield.

The Sikh youths were fighting those who had invaded with a malicious thought to destroy their holiest shrine, to protect the house of lord and to make it’s sanctity, these Sikh youths had one motto only —- to sacrifice for a good cause, and to get martyred, they practically proved in the battlefield the prophetic prononuncement of Guru Gobind Singh ji that, “Chirian to main baaz tudaun, Gidran to main sher banun, Sawa lakh seek laraun, Tbhai Gobind Singh naam kahaun”, means “ only if I can make sparrows fight against hawks, make lions out of jackals, and make one person fight against 1.25 lakh (one hundred twenty five thousand) enemies—only then I deserve to be called Gobind Singh”.

These Sikh youths sacrificed their lives to prove these words whereas the soldiers of Indian army were just obeying the orders of their queen Indira.

            The Generals of Indian army had deliberately selected the martyrdom day of fifth Guru of Sikh religion to attack Darbar sahib while making strategy because on such day the Sikhs arrives in large numbers to Gurudwara along with their families. The Indian army could use their large gathering of congregation to achieve their mission of capturing Akal Takhat. It could deliver two benefits:-

            First— by presence of large congregation the army could reach Akal Takhat  easily in cover of these innocent Sikhs,

Second:- if the army opened fire, the chances were of killing of  innocent Sikhs from either side, the Sikhs may be from devotees or the followers of Sant Jarnail Singh ji.

Indira Gandhi had also issued such orders that whether whole of Amritsar is destroyed but Bhindranwala must not be left alive. Thus, the Indian army had planned to proceed safely towards Sri Akal Tkhat in cover of innocent devotees and then to attack there like the soldiers proceed in battle fields in the cover of buffalows or other animals to save their lives.

            The Generals of Indian army too made the same strategy that their soldiers shall capture Sri Akal Takhat within half an hour by getting safe cover of congregation of devotees there because these generals were sure that the Sikh youths shall never fire on their brothers, sisters or the children in congregation but the brave warriors inside the shrine had got Gurilla training from retired Maj. General Shubeg Singh who was expert in such wars. These brave Sikhs finished the first attack in minutes. All those soldiers who were sent inside at periphery of Darbar sahib were killed by indiscriminate firing.

            The fierce fight to capture Akal Takhat was continued for nearly 72 hrs but when infantry division of Indian army failed to proceed a few meters, than Armored personal carrier vehicles was brought into service to ferry the soldiers safely to Akal Takhat but such an APC vehicle was blown off by a missile.

And after the Infantry surrendered, the heavy armor and Artillery was brought in, Tanks fired 80 shells on Akal Takhat whereas last reports revealed that only 14 Sikhs were left alive in Akal takhat but the army generals were sweating and had left their patience. they had assured indira to take control of Akal takhat within half an hour and every attempt was made to kill Sant ji as Indira had ordered them. She didn’t want to capture him alive.

Finally these brave last 14 Sikhs were killed and then only indian army could enetr the building and took over the control. none of these brave Sikh youths was caughht alive or surrendered but they sacrificed their lives to protect sanctum Sanctorum darbar Sahib from invasion and set the example of valor of Sikhs as per their tradition for centuries.

Hats off to all of them.

ਅਰਥ: ਹੇ ਰੰਗੀਲੇ ਸਾਕੀ ਆ ਸ਼ਰਾਬ ਦਾ ਪਿਆਲਾ ਇਥੇ ਭਰ ਦੇ, ਤੇਰੇ ਲਾਲ ਰੰਗ ਦੀ ਸ਼ਰਾਬ ਦਾ ਪਿਆਲਾ ਸੱਚ (ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ) ਦੇ ਭੇਦਾਂ ਦਾ ਪਤਾ ਦੱਸਦੀ ਹੈ।
ਹੁਣ ਦਸਮ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਵਿਰੋਧੀਆਂ ਲਈ ਭਾਈ ਨੰਦ ਲਾਲ ਭੀ ਸ਼ਰਾਬੀ ਐਲਾਨ ਦਿੱਤੇ ਜਾਣੇ ਚਾਹੀਦੇ ਹਨ।

ਗੁਰੂ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਸਿੰਘ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਨੇ ਸਿੱਖਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਹੁਕਮ ਦਿਤਾ ਹੈ:

16- ਬਿਨ ਕਰਤਾਰ ਕਿਰਤਮ ਮਾਨੋ॥ (ਸ਼ਬਸ ਹਜ਼ਾਰੇ ਪਾ.10)

ਅਰਥਾਤ ਕਰੀ ਹੋਈ ਵਸਤੂ ਨੂੰ ਨਾ ਪੂਜੋ, ਕਰਤਾਰ (ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲੇ) ਦੀ ਉਪਾਸਨਾ ਕਰੋ।

ਮੈਂ ਦਿਖਾਵੇ ਵਜੋਂ ਕੁਝ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰਦਾ

17- ਜਟਾ, ਮੁੰਡ ਧਰੌ,
ਮੁੰਦ੍ਰਕਾ ਸਵਾਰੌ |
ਜਪੋ ਤਾਸ ਨਾਮੰ,
ਸਰੈ ਸਰਬ ਕਾਮੰ |

ਨੈਨੰ ਮਿਚਾਊਂ,
ਡਿੰਭ ਦਿਖਾਂਊਂ |
ਕੁਕਰਮੰ ਕਮਾਊਂ,
ਭੇਖੀ ਕਹਾਊਂ |

{ਦਸਮ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ, ਬਚਿੱਤ੍ਰ ਨਾਟਕ, ਰਸਾਵਲ ਛੰਦ, ਪਦ ੫੧੫੨ }

N jata, mund dharou,
N mundrka sawarou |
Japo taas naman,
sarae sarab kaman |

N nainan michaun,
N dhimbh dikhaoun |
N kukarman kamaun,
N pekhi kahaoun |

I neither wear long matted hair,nor indulge in complete shaving of my head.
I do not adorn my ears with the earrings of mendicants.
I mediate only on God’s Name and all my affairs are accomplished thereby.
I do not close my eyes or make anything else for show.
I neither commit any misdeeds nor engage myself in any such activity
because of which I may be called a disguiser.

{Dasam Granth Sahib, Bachittar Natak, Rasaval Chand, Pad 51-52}

18- “ਦੇਹ ਸਿਵਾ ਬਰੁ ਮੋਹਿ ਇਹੈ ਸੁਭ ਕਰਮਨ ਤੇ ਕਬਹੂੰ ਟਰੋਂ   ਡਰੋਂ ਅਰਿ ਸੋ ਜਬ ਜਾਇ ਲਰੋਂ ਨਿਸਚੈ ਕਰਿ ਅਪੁਨੀ ਜੀਤ ਕਰੋਂ  ਅਰੁ ਸਿਖ ਹੋਂ ਆਪਨੇ ਹੀ ਮਨ ਕੌ ਇਹ ਲਾਲਚ ਹਉ ਗੁਨ ਤਉ ਉਚਰੋਂ  ਜਬ ਆਵ ਕੀ ਅਉਧ ਨਿਦਾਨ ਬਨੈ ਅਤਿ ਹੀ ਰਨ ਮੈ ਤਬ ਜੂਝ ਮਰੋਂ” 

“Deh Shiva bar mohe ihe shubh karman te kabhun na taron!! Na taron ari son jab jaae laron nischai kar apni jeet karon!! Aru Sikh haun apne hi man ko ih laalch hau gun tao uchron!! Jab aav ki audh nidhan bane ati hi ran men tab joojh maron!!

O Lord grant me the boon, that I may never deviate from doing a good deed.

That I shall not fear when I go into combat. And with determination I will be victorious.

That I may teach myself this greed alone, to learn only Thy praises.

And when the last days of my life come, I may die in the might of the battlefield.

The hymn is a part of Chandi Charitar Ukti Bilas, a section of the Dasam Granth. Throughout Sikh scriptures, the Sikh Gurus use both Hindu and Muslim names for god to refer to Waheguru. The word “Siva” primarily means Waheguru and represents God as monotheistic, undescribed, unseen and immortal.”

ਧੋਲਾ ਬਲਦ- ਭਗਤ ਨਾਮਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਦਾ ਸ਼ਿਵ ਨੂ ਧੋਲੇ ਬਲਦ ‘ਤੇ ਚੜਿਆ ਲਿਖਣ ਵਿਚ ਕੀ ਭੇਤ ਹੈ ?

ਕਈ ਦੇਵਤਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਕੁੱਤੇ, ਗਧੇ, ਸੂਰ ਆਦਿ ਦੀ ਸਵਾਰੀ ਮਿਲੀ ਹੋਈ ਹੈ | ਫਿਰ ਮਹਾਂਦੇਉ ਦੇ ਹੀ ਪੁੱਤਰ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗਣੇਸ਼ ਜੀ ਨੂੰ ਸਿਰ ਤਾ ਹਾਥੀ ਦਾ ਲਾਇਆ ਸੀ ਪਰ ਉਸ ਗ਼ਰੀਬ ਨੂੰ ਸਵਾਰੀ ਚੂਹੇ ਦੀ ਦਿੱਤੀ ਹੈ | ਏਧਰ ਸ਼ਿਵਜੀ ਨੂੰ ਸਗੋਂ ਗਊ ਮਾਤਾ ਦਾ ਜਾਇਆ ਸੁੰਦਰ ਬਲਦ ਸਵਾਰੀ ਲਈ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਹੋਇਆ ਹੈ | ਕੀ ਭਗਤ ਨਾਮਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਨੂੰ ਗਊ ਦੇ ਜਾਏ ‘ਤੇ ਚੜਾ ਦੇਣ ਵਿਚ ਬ੍ਰਾਹਮਣ ਦੀ ਅਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਨਜ਼ਰ ਆਈ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਜਾਂ ਕੋਈ ਹੋਰ ਗੁੱਝਾ ਭੇਤ ਹੈ ? ਨਾਮਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਨੇ ਖ਼ਾਸ ਤੋਰ ‘ਤੇ ਸ਼ਿਵਜੀ ਨੂੰ ਬਲਦ ਉਤੇ ਚੜਿਆ ਦੇਖਣ ਦਾ ਜ਼ਿਕਰ ਕਿਸ ਕਾਰਨ ਕੀਤਾ ? ਗਾਇਤ੍ਰੀ ਵਾਂਗ ਹੀ ਜ਼ਰੂਰ ਕੋਈ ਬੜੀ ਸਪੱਸ਼ਟ ਬੇਅਦਬੀ ਵਾਲੀ ਗਾਥਾ ਹੋਣੀ ਹੈ ? ਇਸ ਉਤਸੁਕਤਾ ਨੂੰ ਦੂਰ ਕਰਨ ਲਈ ਪੁਰਾਣਾਂ ਦੀ ਘੋਖ ਕੀਤੀ | ਪੁਰਾਣਿਕ ਗਾਥਾ ਵਿਚ ਬ੍ਰਾਹਮਣ ਨੇ ਇਸ ਬਲਦ ਦੇ ਜਨਮ ਨਾਲ ਵਾਕਿਆ ਹੀ ਬੜੀ ਅਜੀਬ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਜੋੜ ਕੇ ਇਸ ਦਾ ਵੀ ਖ਼ੂਬ ਮੋਜੂ ਉਡਾਇਆ ਹੋਇਆ ਹੈ |

ਮਹਾਨ ਕੋਸ਼ ਦੇ ੩੨੦ ਸਫੇ ‘ਤੇ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਹੈ :

ਕਾਲਕਾ ਪੁਰਾਣ ਵਿਚ ਕਥਾ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਦਕਸ਼ ਦੀ ਕੰਨਿਆ ਸਰਭਿ ਦੇ ਉਦਰ ਤੋਂ ਕਸ਼ਯਪ ਦੀ ਬੇਟੀ ਰੋਹਣੀ ਜੰਮੀ | ਰੋਹਣੀ ਦੇ ਗਰਭ ਤੋਂ ਸੂਰਸੈਣ ਵਸੁ ਦੇ ਵੀਰਯ ਕਰਕੇ ਕਾਮਧੇਨ (ਇਸਤ੍ਰੀ ਦੇ ਗਰਭ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਗਊ) ਦਾ ਜਨਮ ਹੋਇਆ | ਇਕ ਵਿਸ਼ੱਈ ਬੇਤਾਲ (ਭੂਤ) ਕਾਮਧੇਨ ਦੀ ਸੁੰਦਰਤਾ ਦੇਖ ਕੇ ਮੋਹਿਤ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਬੈਲ ਦਾ ਰੂਪ ਧਾਰ ਕੇ ਉਸ ਨੇ ਕਾਮਧੇਨ ਨਾਲ ਭੋਗ ਕੀਤਾ, ਜਿਸ ਤੋਂ ਵੱਡੇ ਕੱਦ ਦਾ ਬੈਲ ਜਨਮਿਆ, ਜੋ ਸ਼ਿਵ ਦਾ ਵਾਹਨ ਹੋਇਆ | (ਭਾਵ, ਸ਼ਿਵ ਦੀ ਸਵਾਰੀ ਬਣਿਆ) |

(ਜਿਸ ਬਲਦ ਦਾ ਪਿਤਾ ਭੂਤ, ਮਾਤਾ ਗਊ ਅਤੇ ਨਾਨੀ ਇਸਤ੍ਰੀ ਹੋਵੇ, ਅਜਿਹੀ ਹਰਾਮੀ ਔਲਾਦ, ਸ਼ਿਵ ਜਾਂ ਇਸ ਤੋਂ ਵੀ ਵੱਡੇ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਦੀ ਸਵਾਰੀ ਹੋਵੇ, ਉਸ ਪ੍ਰਤੀ ਸ਼ਰਧਾ ਭਾਵਨਾ ਬਣਨੀ ਮੁਸ਼ਕਿਲ ਹੁੰਦੀ ਹੈ |)

ਸਾਰੇ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਦੇ ਲੋਕਾਂ ਨੇ ਰਾਮਾਇਣ ਅਤੇ ਮਹਾਂਭਾਰਤ ਮੂਵੀਆਂ ਟੀ.ਵੀ. ‘ਤੇ ਵੇਖੀਆਂ ਹਨ | ਉਨ੍ਨਾਂ ਵਿਚ ਕਥਿਤ ਭਗਵਾਨ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਸਮੇਤ ਸਾਰੇ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਕਹਾਣੀ ਦੇ ਹਰ ਮੋੜ ‘ਤੇ ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਹੋਏ ਕਈ ਤਰ੍ਰਾਂ ਦੇ ਵਰ-ਸਰਾਪ ਦਿੰਦੇ ਵੇਖਣ ਵਿਚ ਆਉਂਦੇ ਹਨ | ਜਿਸ ਢੰਗ ਨਾਲ ਇਹ ਸਭ ਕੁਝ ਵਾਪਰਦਾ ਦਰਸਾਇਆ ਹੈ, ਉਸ ਤੋਂ ਲੋਕੜਾ ਵਿਸ਼ਵਾਸ ਬਣ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਸਤਿਜੁਗ ਤੋਂ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਹਰ ਜੁਗ ਵਿਚ, ਜਦੋਂ ਵੀ ਅਤੇ ਜਿਥੇ ਵੀ (ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ, ਵਿਸ਼ਨੂੰ, ਮਹੇਸ਼) ਜਿਸ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਨੂੰ ਵੀ ਯਾਦ ਕੀਤਾ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ, ਉਹ ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਹੋ ਕੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਭਗਤ ਦੀ ਬੇਨਤੀ ਸੁਣਦਾ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਯੋਗ ਸਹਾਇਤਾ ਜ਼ਰੂਰ ਕਰਦਾ ਹੈ |

ਪਰ ਹਿੰਦੂ ਧਰਮ ‘ਤੇ ਬੇਅੰਤ ਤਰ੍ਰਾਂ ਨਾਲ ਜ਼ੁਲਮੀ ਕਹਿਰ ਵਰਤਿਆ ਪਰ ਕਦੇ ਕਿਸੇ ਵੀ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਨੇ ਦੇਸ਼ਵਾਸੀਆਂ ਦੀ ਕੋਈ ਪੁਕਾਰ ਨਹੀਂ ਸੁਣੀ | ਕਦੇ ਕੋਈ ਦੇਵਤਾ ਕਿਸੇ ਦੁਖਿਆਰੇ ਦੀ ਸਹਾਇਤਾ ਲਈ ਨਹੀਂ ਆਇਆ | ਹਿੰਦੂ ਧਰਮ ਦੇ ਗ੍ਰੰਥਾਂ ਵਿਚ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਦੀ ਉਮਰ ਕਈ ਕ੍ਰੋੜ ਵਰ੍ਰੇ ਲਿਖੀ ਹੈ | ਭਾਗਵਤ ਪੁਰਾਣ ਦੇ ਲਿਖਾਰੀ ਨੇ ਭਗਵਾਨ ਵਿਸ਼ਨੂੰ ਨੂੰ ਅਤੇ ਸ਼ਿਵ ਪੁਰਾਣ ਲਿਖਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਨੇ ਭਗਵਾਨ ‘ਮਹਾਸ਼ਿਵ’ ਨੂੰ ਅਮਰ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਹੈ | ਏਡੀ ਲੰਮੀ ਉਮਰ ਵਾਲਾ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਅਥਵਾ ਅਮਰਾ ਪਦ ਵਾਲਾ ਵਿਸ਼ਨੂੰ, ਸ਼ਿਵ, ਦੁਰਗਾ ਆਦਿ ਦੇਵੀ-ਦੇਵਤੇ, ਜਿਹੜੇ ਰਾਮਾਇਣ ਅਤੇ ਮਹਾਂਭਾਰਤ ਦੇ ਸਮਿਆਂ ਵਿਚ ਝੱਟ ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਹੁੰਦੇ ਦਰਸਾਏ ਹੋਏ ਹਨ, ਭਾਰਤ ‘ਤੇ ਕੀਤੇ ਜ਼ੁਲਮ ਅਥਵਾ ਲਗਾਤਾਰ ਪੈ ਰਹੀਆਂ ਮੁਸੀਬਤਾਂ ਸਮੇਂ ਉਹ ਕਥਿਤ ਮਹਾਨ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਕਿੱਧਰ ਚਲੇ ਗਏ ਸਨ ? ਸ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਟੀ ਦਾ ਕਰਤਾ, ਬ੍ਰਾਹਮਣ ਨੂੰ ਆਪਣੇ ਮੂੰਹ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਪੈਦਾ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲਾ, ਸਾਰੇ ਜੀਵਾਂ ਦਾ ਪਿਤਾ, ਭਗਵਾਨ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਵੀ ਭਾਰਤ ਵਾਸੀ ਆਪਣੇ ਸਕੇ ਪੁੱਤਰਾਂ ਦੀ ਸਹਾਇਤਾ ਲਈ ਕਿਸ ਕਾਰਨ ਕਦੇ ਨਹੀਂ ਬਹੁੜਿਆ ? ਉਸ ਦੀ ਕ੍ਰੋੜਾਂ ਸਾਲ ਵਾਲੀ ਉਮਰ ਦੀ ਗੱਲ ਦਾ ਕੀ ਬਣਿਆ ? ਕੀ ਵਾਕਿਆ ਹੀ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਅਮਰ ਹਨ ? ਕੀ ਇਹ ਸਾਰਾ ਪ੍ਰੋਹਿਤਵਾਦੀ ਮਾਇਆ-ਜਾਲ ਹੀ ਤਾਂ ਨਹੀਂ ਹੈ ?

ਆਉ ਜੁਗੋਜੁਗ ਅਟੱਲ, ਹਾਜਰਾਹਜ਼ੂਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦੇ ਬਚਨ ਧਿਆਨ ਨਾਲ ਸੁਣ ਕੇ ਵਿਚਾਰੀਏ :

28- ਪ੍ਰਥਮੇ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਕਾਲੈ ਘਰਿ ਆਇਆ ||ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਕਮਲੁ ਪਇਆਲਿ ਪਾਇਆ ||ਆਗਿਆ ਨਹੀ ਲੀਨੀ ਭਰਮਿ ਭੁਲਾਇਆ ||||ਜੋ ਉਪਜੈ ਸੋ ਕਾਲਿ ਸੰਘਾਰਿਆ ||ਹਮ ਹਰਿ ਰਾਖੇ ਗੁਰ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਬੀਚਾਰਿਆ ||||ਰਹਾਉ||ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹੇ ਦੇਵੀ ਸਭ ਦੇਵਾ ||ਕਾਲੁ ਛੋਡੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਸੇਵਾ ||ਓਹੁ ਅਬਿਨਾਸੀ ਅਲਖ ਅਭੇਵਾ ||||ਸੁਲਤਾਨ ਖਾਨ ਬਾਦਿਸਾਹ ਨਹੀ ਰਹਨਾ ||ਨਾਮਹੁ ਭੂਲੈ ਜਮ ਕਾ ਦੁਖੁ ਸਹਨਾ ||ਮੈ ਧਰ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਿਉ ਰਾਖਹੁ ਰਹਨਾ ||||ਚੋਉਧਰੀ ਰਾਜੇ ਨਹੀ ਕਿਸੈ ਮੁਕਾਮੁ ||ਸਾਹ ਮਰਹਿ ਸੰਚਹਿ ਮਾਇਆ ਦਾਮ ||ਮੈ ਧਨੁ ਦੀਜੈ ਹਰਿ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਨਾਮੁ ||||ਰਯਤਿ ਮਹਰ ਮੁਕਦਮ ਸਿਕਦਾਰੈ ||ਨਿਹਚਲੁ ਕੋਇ ਦਿਸੈ ਸੰਸਾਰੈ ||ਅਫਰਿਉ ਕਾਲੁ ਕੂੜੁ ਸਿਰਿ ਮਾਰੈ ||||ਨਿਹਚਲੁ ਏਕੁ ਸਚਾ ਸਚੁ ਸੋਈ ||ਜਿਨਿ ਕਰਿ ਸਾਜੀ ਤਿਨਹਿ ਸਭ ਗੋਈ ||ਓਹੁ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਜਾਪੈ ਤਾਂ ਪਤਿ ਹੋਈ ||||ਕਾਜੀ ਸੇਖ ਭੇਖ ਫਕੀਰਾ ||ਵਡੇ ਕਹਾਵਹਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਤਨਿ ਪੀਰਾ ||ਕਾਲੁ ਛੋਡੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕੀ ਧੀਰਾ ||||ਕਾਲੁ ਜਾਲੁ ਜਿਹਵਾ ਅਰੁ ਨੈਣੀ ||ਕਾਨੀ ਕਾਲੁ ਸੁਣੈ ਭਿਖੁ ਬੈਣੀ ||ਬਿਨੁ ਸਬਦੈ ਮੂਠੇ ਦਿਨੁ ਰੈਣੀ ||||ਹਿਰਦੈ ਸਾਚੁ ਵਸੈ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਇ ||ਕਾਲੁ ਜੋਹਿ ਸਕੈ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਇ ||ਨਾਨਕ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਸਮਾਇ ||||੧੪|| (ਅੰਗ ੨੨੭)

ਇਸ ਪਾਵਨ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਵਿਚ ਸਭ ਤੋ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਨੂੰ ਹੀ ਕਾਲ ਚੱਕਰ ਵਿਚ ਫਸਿਆ ਖੱਜਲ-ਖੁਆਰ ਹੁੰਦਾ ਦਰਸਾ ਕੇ ਉਸ ਪ੍ਰਤੀ ਬਣਿਆ ਸਿਰਜਨ-ਹਾਰ ਵਾਲਾ ਭੁਲੇਖਾ ਖ਼ਤਮ ਕੀਤਾ ਹੈ | ਫਿਰ ਹੋਰ ਸਾਰੇ ਦੇਵੀ-ਦੇਵਤੇ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਵਾਂਗ ਆਤਮਿਕ ਮੋਤੇ ਮਰਦੇ ਹੋਣ ਦੇ ਕਾਰਨ, ਸੰਸਾਰ ਵਿਚ ਜੰਮਦੇ ਮਰਦੇ ਦਰਸਾ ਕੇ ਉਨ੍ਨਾਂ ਦੀ ਕਥਿਦੈਵੀ ਸ਼ਕਤੀ ਬਾਰੇ ਬਣੇ ਭਰਮ ਦੀ ਖੰਡਨਾ ਕੀਤੀ ਹੈ |

ਸਤਿਗੁਰਾਂ ਦਾ ਸ਼ਬਦ-ਗਿਆਨ ਹੀ ਮਨੁੱਖ ਲਈ ਕਲਿਆਣਕਾਰੀ ਹੈ | ਸਦਾ ਗੁਰੂ ਦੀ ਸਿਖਿਆ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਚੱਲ ਕੇ ਆਪਣੀ ਜੀਵਨ-ਜੁਗਤ ਸੁਆਰਨ ਦੇ ਆਹਾਰ ਵਿਚ ਸੁਚੇਤ ਰਹਿਣਾ ਚਾਹੀਦਾ ਹੈ |

ਅਗਲੇ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਵਿਚ ਵੀ ਸਤਿਗੁਰਾਂ ਨੇ ਸਾਰੇ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਨੂੰ ਰੋਗੀ ਫੁਰਮਨ ਕਰਦਿਆ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ, ਸ਼ਿਵ ਆਦਿ ਕਥਿਤ ਵੱਡੇ-ਵੱਡੇ ਦੇਵਤਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਵੀ (ਸਾਰੇ ਵਿਕਾਰਾਂ ਦਾ ਮੂਲ) ਹਉਮੈ-ਰੋਗ ਕਹਿ ਕੇ, ਇਨ੍ਨਾਂ ਦੀ ਅੱਡਰੀ ਦੈਵੀ ਹਸਤੀ ਦੀ ਹੋਂਦ ਬਾਰੇ ਬਣੇ ਭਰਮ ਦਾ ਭੋਗ ਪਾਇਆ ਹੈ | ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜੀ ਨੂੰ ਆਪਣਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਮੰਨਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਸਿਖ ਨੂੰ ਦੇਵੀ-ਦੇਵਤਿਆਂ ਦੀ ਕਿਸੇ ਕਰਾਮਾਤੀ ਹੋਂਦ ਦੇ ਭਰਮ ਵਿਚ ਨਹੀਂ ਪੈਣਾ ਚਾਹੀਦਾ :

29- ਪਉਣੁ ਪਾਣੀ ਬੈਸੰਤਰੁ ਰੋਗੀ ਰੋਗੀ ਧਰਤਿ ਸਭੋਗੀ ||
ਮਾਤ ਪਿਤਾ ਮਾਇਆ ਦੇਹ ਸਿ ਰੋਗੀ ਰੋਗੀ ਕੁਟੰਬ ਸੰਜੋਗੀ ||||
ਰੋਗੀ ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਬਿਸਨੁ ਸਰੁਦ੍ਰਾ ਰੋਗੀ ਸਗਲ ਸੰਸਾਰਾ ||
ਹਰਿ ਪਦੁ ਚੀਨਿ ਭਏ ਸੇ ਮੁਕਤੇ ਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਸ਼ਬਦੁ ਵੀਚਾਰਾ ||||           (ਅੰਗ ੧੧੫੩)

ਇਕ ਕਥਾ ਵਾਚਕ ਦੇ ਭਗਤ ਤਿਰਲੋਚਨ ਜੀ ਦੇ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਦੀ ਕਥਾ ਕਰਨ ਕਰਕੇ ਹਿੰਦੂ ਸੰਗਠਨ ਭੜਕ ਗਏ ਕੇ ਅਖੇ ਜੀ ਸਾਡੇ ਦੇਵਤਿਆਂ ਦਾ ਅਪਮਾਨ ਕੀਤਾ ਹੈ, ਜੇ ਇਹਨਾ ਨੇ ਦਸਮ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਪੜ ਲਿਆ ਤਾ ਇਹਨਾ ਦਾ ਕੀ ਹਾਲ ਹੋਣਾ ਹੈ ਕਿਓਂ ਕੇ ਗੁਰੂ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਨੇ ਇਹਨਾ ਦੇਵਤਿਆਂ ਦੀ ਕੀਮਤ ਕੋਡੀ ਦੀ ਵੀ ਨਹੀਂ ਪਾਈ :

  • ਕ੍ਰਿਸਨ ਬਿਸਨ ਜਪੇ ਤੁਹਿ ਕੋਟਿਕ ਰਾਮ ਰਹੀਮ ਭਲੀ ਬਿਧਿ ਧਿਆਯੋ
    – ਭਾਵ ਤੂੰ ਕ੍ਰਿਸ਼ਨ , ਵਿਸ਼ਨੂ, ਰਾਮ, ਰਹੀਮ ਵਰਗੇ ਕਰੋੜਾਂ ਬੜੀਆਂ ਜੁਗਤਾਂ ਲਾ ਲਾ ਧਿਆ ਕੇ ਦੇਖ ਲਏ

ਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਜਪਿਓ ਅਰੁ ਸੰਭੁ ਥਪਿਓ ਤਹਿ ਤੇ ਤੁਹਿ ਕੋ ਕਿਨਹੂੰ ਬਚਾਯੋ
– ਬ੍ਰਹਮਾ ਵੀ ਜਪ ਲਿਆ, ਸ਼ਿਵ ਜੀ ਵੀ ਤੂੰ ਥਾਪ ਕੇ ਦੇਖ ਲਿਆ, ਪਰ ਤੈਨੂ ਕਿਸੇ ਨੇ ਨਹੀਂ ਬਚਾਇਆ

ਕੋਟ ਕਰੀ ਤਪਸਾ ਦਿਨ ਕੋਟਿਕ ਕਾਹੂੰ ਕੌਡੀ ਕੋ ਕਾਮ ਕਢਾਯੋ
– ਕਰੋੜਾਂ ਵਾਰ ਤੂੰ ਇਹਨਾ ਦੀ ਤਪਸਿਆ ਕਰ ਕੇ ਦੇਖ ਲਈ, ਪਰ ਇਹਨਾ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਕੋਈ ਕੋਡੀ ਦਾ ਕੰਮ ਨਹੀ ਸਵਾਰ ਸਕਿਆ

ਕਾਮਕੁ ਮੰਤ੍ਰ ਕਸੀਰੇ ਕੇ ਕਾਮ ਕਾਲ ਕੋ ਘਾਉ ਕਿਨਹੂੰ ਬਚਾਯੋ ॥੯੭॥
– ਅਨੇਕਾਂ ਮੰਤਰ ਪੜ ਕੇ ਦੇਖ ਲਏ ਤੂੰ ਪਰ ਕਾਲ ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰਭਾਵ ਤੋਂ ਤੈਨੂ ਕੋਈ ਨਹੀਂ ਬਚਾ ਸਕਿਆ

ਕਾਹੇ ਕੋ ਕੂਰ ਕਰੈ ਤਪਸਾ ਇਨ ਕੀ ਕੋਊ ਕੌਡੀ ਕੇ ਕਾਮ ਐਹੈ
– ਓਏ ਮੂਰਖਾ ਕਿਓਂ ਇਹਨਾ ਸਾਰਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਪੁਜਦਾ ਫਿਰਦਾ ਜੋ ਕਿਸੇ ਕੋਡੀ ਦੇ ਕੰਮ ਦੇ ਨਹੀਂ

ਤੋਹਿ ਬਚਾਇ ਸਕੈ ਕਹੁ ਕੈਸੇ ਕੈ ਆਪਨ ਘਾਵ ਬਚਾਇ ਐਹੈ
– ਤੈਨੂ ਇਹ ਕੀ ਬਚਾਣ ਗੇ??? ਇਹ ਤਾਂ ਆਪਣੇ ਆਪ ਨੂੰ ਨਹੀਂ ਬਚਾ ਸਕੇ!!!

ਕੋਪ ਕਰਾਲ ਕੀ ਪਾਵਕ ਕੁੰਡ ਮੈ ਆਪ ਟੰਗਿਓ ਤਿਮ ਤੋਹਿ ਟੰਗੈ ਹੈ
– ਇਹ ਤਾਂ ਆਪ ਕਾਲ ਦੀ ਕੁੰਡ ਵਿਚ ਜਿਵੇ ਟੰਗੇ ਹੋਏ ਨੇ , ਓਸੇ ਤਰਹ ਤੈਨੂ ਵੀ ਟੰਗਵਾ ਦੇਣਗੇ !

ਚੇਤ ਰੇ ਚੇਤ ਅਜੋ ਜੀਅ ਮੈਂ ਜੜ ਕਾਲ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਬਿਨੁ ਕਾਮ ਨਐ ਹੈ ॥੯੮॥
– ਓਏ ਮੂਰਖ ਓਸ ਪਰਮੇਸ੍ਵਰ ਨੂੰ ਚੇਤ , ਓਸ ਤੋਂ ਬਿਨਾ ਕਿਸੇ ਦੇਵਤੇ ਨੇ ਕੰਮ ਨਹੀਂ ਆਉਣਾ !

ਬਾਕੀ ਹੋਰ ਵੀ ਰਿਸਰਚ ਕਰਕੇ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਜਾਵੇਗਾ ਤਦ ਤਕ ਹਥ ਜੋੜ ਕੇ ਬਿਨਤੀ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਨਾਲ ਜੁੜੋ !

ਸ਼ਿਵ ਸਾਡਾ ਰੱਬ ਨਹੀਂ, ਜੋ ਮੰਨਦੇ, ਓਹਨਾ ਨੂ ਮੁਬਾਰਕ !!
