Thanks

13. Respected Dr.Sahib,

Sat Sri Akal.
I read all u r articles with great interest and I appreciate u r hard-work,and the new and correct interpretations of Gurbani.In the Punjab villages some half cooked granthies always distort holy Gurbani.Tnx for u r efforts. Now the problem is most of the people dont understand Eng.thus they are being deprived of getting benefit from u r great work.Most of my friends face the same prob.They try to read these articles but r unable to understand fully.(For God sake dont think that I know Eng. very well).But my friends want the articles to be published in Punjabi as well. At least some of them.That will be highly appreciated. Please excuse me if u think I am being arrogant.In fact I have the same prob.
thnx.once again.

12. Dear Dr Sekhon

Sat Sri Akal
Since couple of days I was thinking about Gurdwara(so called) Hemkunt Sahib and was confused about its truthful existence. Even we had talk couple of times, about this in our home and when I try to say about this, my wife and my mom always try to stop me saying anything about Hemkunt Sahib.
When I was in university, I visited Hemkunt sahib once with my very religious friends and they were giving respect to Hemkunt Sahib same as Sri Harimander Sahib, Amritsar. Even at that time I tried to discuss same thing but they were not ready to listen even a single word about this.
Since then I never ever read any article anywhere, no newspaper, no radio, no tv who tried to tell people about Hemkunt's authenticity.
Here from your article it made my mind clear. Again thanks to you. I think some how we should make this article reach maximum Sikh sangat.
Also you should write something about so many gurdwaras already constructed and some are still under construction in Brampton and Peel region. Do you think we need so many gurdwaras ?
Thanks and kind regards,
Bobby Bath

11. Sat Sri Akal Dr Sekhon Ji

I went through your website and some contents you wrote here. These are really good. Actually all my life I never read any holy book like any path or gutka or anything like this and I can say this material I spent some time on, is very first one. I really feel interesting when I read this. This is creating some interest in me. Thanks to you for this.

You are really doing a great work and personally I met you and found you as a great personality.
So please keep up the good work.
Thanks.

I just finished reading your article in Sikh Bulletin. Thank you for your research and for solving this riddle. I liked your explanation of the maat. Please do send me a copy of whenever you write something like this.

NOTE: Dr Lal is a highly renowned Sikh Scholar. Here he is talking about a Punjabi article by Dr Sekhon "Tin Maat keejaiy Hur Baanjha" published recently in the Sikh Bulletin. The article will soon be available on this Website.

9. Dear Dr. Sekhon,

I have been reading u r website with keen interest for the last many months.All u r articles r highly informative and knowledgeable . What makes them so special is that u don`t follow the old track.By writing articles like Science v/s God ,Hemkunt and Dukh Bhanjani Beri, U have shattered many of my beliefs that had unwittingly crept into my tiny piece of brain.U R translation of Japuji Sahib is also marvelous.The way u explain words is simply without parallel.U R knowledge of Hindu Mythology is also very deep which helps in better understanding Holy Gurbani.Pl keep on serving the lovers of Sikhism.Thanx.

8. I read your article with interest and appreciate your putting together appropriate references from Gurbani. I also agree with your last sentence as conclusion except that your language implies there that heaven and hell are physical places. You perhaps meant that those place are our munn, mind or inner self, where Waheguru’s praise is sung and Hell … where Waheguru is not remembered. My note is not to debate those terms but point out that your translations of many gurbani verses given in the body of your essay are not consistent with your conclusion.
By the way your website does not take comments, so I am writing to you directly. I hope you do not mind.

7. Dear Veer Ji Davinder,

I became aware of your web site reading your email to Dr. Bhai Harbans Lal Ji. It is very impressing and I commend you for the good work you are doing to spread the message of Gurbani. I also understand your English translation of Japji Sahib is of the Punjabi translation done by Professor Sahib Singh Ji.
I just did a cursory review of the moolmanter translation. Professor Sahib Singh's work is commendable and I am a fan. However I also recognize there are certain short comings too. His translation of Moolmanter did not deviate from the traditional understanding. For example, after translating all the attributes of Waheguru correctly Gur Parsad is translated as "He can be realized only by the benevolence of the Guru".
This definition of God tells us about the mighty power of the creator who is without any rival, immortal, self illuminating. But, what does he do to look after his creation? Is HE compassionate, merciful and helpful?  So why do we need to realize God with the Grace of the Guru?
I submit the correct interpretation of Gur Parsad should be, " HE is a teacher (Guru) Who guides and looks after HIS creation by showering HIS Grace".
Sat Shri Akal and Warm Regards,
Gurpal Singh Khaira
Chief Editor of Sikh Bulletin

5. Dear Dr Sahib

Wish you and your readers a very Happy and Wonderful New Year. You are doing a fantastic job of explaining Gurbani in a simple yet highly effective language. I visit your site regularly, and have learned a lot about Gurbani.  Please continue the great job. Your contribution is highly appreciated by a large number of us. We pray for a very long and healthy life for you.

1. Respected Dr Sahib,

Gur Fateh.For the first time we have been provided with the meaningful interpretations of The Holy G G Sahib. No one has ever dared to challenge the made up stories that have entered into the Sikh Religion.I cannot understand why our people dont stand up against the stories. The only purpose of a Sikh should be to lead life as per the principles of sikhism as incorporated in Guru Granth Sahib.All u r articles are simply wonderful.I think U R doing a great service to the Sikh Nation. please keep it up,And dont give into any kind of pressure. thank u.

Preet  P Singh

2.  Dear Dr Sekhon

Only recently a friend of mine suggested me to check out your website. Am I ever glad that he did that!  Not only am I enjoying all your article, but I am learning a lot about Gurbani. I wish we were taught Gurbani much earlier.  Some of your articles are eye-openers, especially Sikhi, Khalsa and Amrit;  Amrit and Amritsar,  Lucky and Unlucky days, Guru Har Krishan Sahib: A Great martyr and so on.  Please keep up the excellent service for the younger generation.

Cannot thank you enough

MARTYRDOM OF GURU ARJUN SAHIB

MARTYRDOM OF GURU ARJUN DEV JI

As Guru Nanak Sahib’s Divine Message began to spread among more and more people all over India, the zealots of other religions – particularly Hinduism and Islam – began to oppose Sikhism with more vigour.  The main reason for the opposition was the death blow to the highly popular but very misleading rituals of both the religions that the Principles of Sikhism hit at.  The priests of both faiths felt threatened as more and more people began to follow the simple and meaningful Principles of Sikhism. The loss in the number of followers in the two main religions meant less and less income to their respective institutions and to themselves as individuals.

LIBERATION OF GURDWARAS

LIBERATION OF THE HISTORICAL GURDWARAS

The Sikh history is replete with supreme sacrifices and martyrdoms. There is hardly a day in the calendar on which some Sikh did not make some sacrifice.  So, although each and every month has its share of sacrifices, the month of February has its own importance in terms of sacrifices because hundreds of Sikhs were butchered in a barbaric way for their peaceful agitation to liberate the Nankana Sahib Gurdwara from a highly immoral Mahant who was using the holy premises of the historical Gurdwara for all sorts of immoral activities.
