Lot of readers reach my blog by searching for Rehatnama by Guru Gobind Singh or Rehat Maryada by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. These are popular keywords and my blog shows up the in the search. One of the main reason I started this blog was that I too searched Rehatnama or Rehat Maryada by Guru Gobind Singh or one of the Gurus but not from any body else. I could not find one except Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Again this is my perspective and you can disgaree with me. Also I prey to Waheguru forgive me if am wrong. Guru Gobind Singh made the writings of the all the Gurus available in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib before he passed away in his human form. Please read my other posting. Most of the Rehat Maryada we follow now is not written or said by our Gurus. If Gurus can write this pious and holy writings they could have written these rehat nama by them selves. I some what agree that we should follow Rehat Maryada written in 1900 by SGPC as too many Maryadas were making it more complicated. Again this is sort of agreement between different sects and deras that let us follow these rules. Every body knows they bargained. Irony is that this Rehat Maryada is enforced or dictated from same place where we discriminate women. (Women cannot do sewa or kirtan in Harmandir Sahib). And we fools (including me) are following it blindly.
May Waheguru enlighten us all and guide to right path. For this we have to open our senses.
