Kirtan from Harmandir Sahib
Today I'm posting a recording that Angad told me to take of tanti saaz being played in darbar sahib on the 17th of June. I'm not sure who is singing, but I think is one of Prof. Kartar Singh's students. So here it goes... Harmandir Sahib Tanti Saaz 17/06/2006. The link will only be available for the next 7 days or 100 downloads...
Also, I will soon be on holidays and will be travelling around Australia with my Mom who joined me here today. So there'll be heaps of pictures coming soon... Till the next post...

Guru Rakha

The Silence
Yes...I've been silent for a long time now. The reason - too much other work to do. I have exams coming up around the corner, so have busy mugging. And apart from the normality of life, I have been doing a lot of Vichaar with other Gursikhs from around the world and have come to realise a lot things. Firstly, Ive realised that although we all call ourselves Sikhs of the guru, there are so many different views about the religion, about what is acceptable and what is not... And the bottomline is that everyone will have their own thoughts and views in respect to the experiences they've had as individuals in this life. I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with that at all, but I'm glad for all the vichaar that has happened as it has probably made me a bit more wiser. Apart from that, Ive also been trying to learn new shabads to sing at the Gurdwara on Sunday. Haven't really had the time to actually write out notations for any of them to share, but all that will have to wait till after my exams now, i guess.

World Cup has started and that's one more distraction to add to my list. I don't know whether it's a boon or bane that it's in Germany this year, so to watch any of the games I'll have to be up all night. Well, at least its not as enticing to watch a game if its in the day time. Waking up at 1am just to watch football isn't really justifiable, especially when its only the preliminaries.

Also, the link to the notations of the earlier shabad is up again for the next 7 days or 25 downloads. So get your hands on it people!!

Anyway, I'll leave with a beautiful picture of a very colourful bird that was perched on the tree right outside my house one morning. I had meant to post it a long time ago, and forgot about it after a while. So here it goes now...



Till next time... Guru Rakha...

Fateh...
