Was Giani Sant Singh Maskeen “Vidya Maartand” and “Brahm Giani”?

Vocabulary: – Vidya Martand = Sun of Knowledge, Brahm Giani = He who knows the truth of the universe, he is the creator of the universe, he is formless, yet he is present in every form on this earth. (Shri Sukhmani Sahib) Gurmat = the ideology/intelligence given by Sikh spiritual gurus, the Sikh faith. Bhog = conclusion ceremony after Paath is complete. Paath = the act of reading and understanding the Sikh holy book Guru Granth Sahib.

If you put Maskeen ji's lecture audios aside and read Osho's (Rajneesh's) books first, you will feel it yourself that Giani Maskeen Ji exactly repeated Osho's words and scarcely talked about Sikh faith.

The management of one gurdwara in England imposed a restriction on Maskeen ji (for his lectures in that gurdwara) requiring him to talk only about Gurbani and Gurmat, and not Brahamanical fables and stories. Maskeen Ji replied, "If you want me to talk only about Gurmat (the knowledge/instruction from the Sikh gurus) then turn off all the video cameras. I cannot talk just about Gurmat while being recorded". By getting recorded talking just about Gurmat, he did not want to disappoint his followers who adhere to Hinduism.

He often used to make this 'anti-Gurmat' claim that angels came to listen to his lectures and were visible to Maskeen Ji only.

He was already considered to be a millionaire preacher, what good for the Gurmat has been done by presenting his family with tens and tens of lakhs of rupees?

At the time of bhog (related to funeral ceremoney of Maskeen Ji), special efforts were made to promote him as "Brahm Giani" with the help of banners declaring so. On the other hand, Gurbani only calls "Akaal Purakh" as Brahm Giani and mentions that Brahm Giani never dies.

He was a big fan of mythological gods, the salacious idols of Khajuraho, and the nudity-ridden stories from the Dasam Granth and kept using Gurbani wrongly to prove the carnal-lust instigating stories that he used to tell.

Maskeen ji has written a book on Gurudwara Management and has distributed this book free of cost. In that book he mentions that the present Gurudwara Management is incompetent and the solution that he mentions in the book is that the Gurudwara Management be given back to "Nirmaliye". Maskeen ji got education from a "Nirmaliya" teacher and he himself is a follower of "Nirmaliya" sect and is a disciple of Baba Shri Chand. These Nirmalye were the people who spread the "Brahmani" beliefs in the Gurdwaras in the past. He always talked about people rather than talking about the Panth (Sikh Panth).

Had I not gotten the chance to watch the continuous, seven-hour live telecast of Sant Maskeen Ji's last rituals and tribute ceremonies on the channel ETC TV, I would never have written this essay. It is not possible for one to knowingly gulp a fly in the milk. In the tribute ceremony, the following incomplete line from Gurbani was written in bold words in front of Guru Granth Sahib Ji – "Brahm Gyani sad jeeve nahi marta."

Watching and reading this shocked my mind and heart. This big blunder? Did this person – who, all his life, kept lecturing on the stages meant for preaching Gurmat, who earned his living by supposedly preaching Gurmat – not teach the essence of Gurbani to his family and his disciples and the likes (of Ranjeet Singh Gohar, etc., who were managing these ceremonies)? The incomplete line mentioned above has been culled from 8th ashtpadi of Shri Sukhmani Sahib and has been used by these people in a way to emphasize that Giani Sant Singh Ji Maskeen was "Brahm Giani" and he has not died but is alive because being a "Brahm Giani" he cannot die. Now kindly pay attention to the 8th ashtpadi from where the incomplete line mentioned above has been picked, and note who has been called "Brahm Giani" in Gurbani.

Braham Giani sabh srishat ka karta ॥ Braham Giani sad jeeve nahin marta ॥ Braham Giani mukt jugat ka daata ॥ Braham Giani pooran purakh bidhata ॥ Braham Giani anaath ka naath ॥ Braham Giani ka sabh upar haath ॥ Braham Giani ka sagal aakaar ॥ Braham Giani aap nirankaar ॥

There are 7 other paudiyaan of this 8th ashtpadi but summarizing and understanding just the 8th paudi removes all the doubts about who should be called Brahm Giani.

Sentence wise, brief meanings are as follows:- 1. Brahm Giani is he who has created this whole universe. 2. Brahm Giani always lives, he never dies. 3. Brahm Giani shows the way to salvation, shows the way to live life. 4. Brahm Giani is, in truth, the puran purakh (consummate), and the one who gives birth to all. 5. Brahm Giani helps the helpless. 6. Brahm Giani showers his blessings on everyone. 7. All visible forms/shape (the world, the universe, the nature) are images (embodiments) of Brahm Giani. 8. Brahm Giani is nobody else, but the Supreme Power (God) himself.

Everyone knows that since we live in human bodies we all are bound to die one day – all the saints and our own ten revered Gurus had to leave as well. Whoever has foolishly tried to convince people to call himself God, has lost respect in the eyes of intelligent people. If the misuse of above mentioned line were being done by Maskeen Ji's family only, it might have been a little less painful, but the preachers who have been taught by Maskeen Ji did blunderous interpretation of Gurbani as well. Extremely painful is the fact that when all these blunders were visibly and noticeably made in such ceremonies, all the five heads of our five Takhts were present there. The heads of Delhi Gurdwara Management Committee (DGMC) and Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) were also present there. There were other numerous preachers and honorable personalities present on this occasion and none of them could say a word till the end about this self-created doctrine. Now should we simply drink this bitter pain and be calm that all these people don’t even have the slightest understanding of Gurbani, or should we think that these people have become so much cowardly that they could not dare to speak the truth? At least somebody could have said this at sometime, “Saadh Sangat! This line means God (IkOnkar) himself, and God (IkOnkar) never dies. We all corporeal beings are bound to destruction.”

Now let’s consider some of the comments by the responsible people during the 2nd March 2005 tribute ceremony: – Role model for Sikh society: Every speaker who came onstage reiterated again and again that Maskeen Ji was a role model for our life and was a source of inspiration for the Sikh Panth. Note that in today’s world our revered “Guru Sahibaan” are seen no more as role models for the Sikh society; Gurbani is no longer the source of inspiration for Sikhs.

Sun?: More trumpets of praise were blown on the stage, “Maskeen was like sun of knowledge, he was “Vidya Martand”, he was great Gurbani speaker (kathawachak).” Note that all other shining things do not have their own source of light rather they shine by reflecting the light from the Sun. The Sun is the only unique power which does not need to borrow light from somewhere else, the shine and heat is of its own. What Maskeen Ji told his audience (sangat), was that knowledge his own? The learned people in the Sikh society know that this “glitter” of knowledge was from the great writers of our Gurbani. The treasure in the form of Gurbani bequeathed to us by our Gurus is the sun of knowledge for us. If we use the title of Sun for Maskeen Ji, then what words would be used for our Guru Sahibaan? If anybody has a doubt then please listen carefully Maskeen ji’s lectures and start reading Osho’s (Rajneesh’s) books. You will find a word-by-word repetition, barring a few exceptions here and there. And the difference that seems to be counting is that general Sikh population has not read Osho’s books.

Just repeated Osho’s words: Now if you call Maskeen Ji a great speaker of Gurbani – my apologies for differing with you – I'd say that in his 40 years of exposure to public he has not done any preaching of Gurbani. If he has spoken of anything other than Osho’s words, they were the poems of Sheik Sadi, Meer, Daag, Mirza Ghalib and Faiz etc. In his one hour of lecture one finds very few lines from Gurbani and that too incomplete. He never spoke about any whole “shabad” from Gurbani. He never remained stationed at any place for one or two months to do continuous recitation and preaching of Gurbani. But yes, he adored the Dasam Granth which is full of obscene stories. He used to tell with great enthusiasm the carnal act-ridden stories from the Dasam Granth.

After the death of the richest story-teller lakhs more were given from the religious funds: A check worth fifty thousand was given to Maskee Ji’s wife as a help from the Delhi Gurudwara Management Committee. In addition to this, a promise was given of no interference in all those places which were in the possession of Maskeen family. Those properties belonged to the committee and hence were the public religious fund generated properties but were given away to Maskeen Ji’s family. Forgetting all ancient scholars and brave Sikhs, the Delhi Gurudwara Management Committee’s head announced to start an award in the name of Maskeen Ji. Perhaps these people have accepted Maskeen Ji as the greatest among all those ancient scholars and brave men.

Why so much fondness for Maskeen ji?: Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) went one step ahead. In memory of Maskeen Ji, Bhai Gurdaas award was declared. Reward of one lakh rupees was reserved for Maskeen Ji’s wife. Ten lakh rupees were given to Maskeen Ji’s family by SGPC right away…

The Maskeen Ji, whose three sons own well established businesses in foreign lands, who had earned enormous money by selling audio cassettes of his lectures, by selling books and by delivering lectures, was given even more money. The money that public is faithfully donating in the Gurdwaras is being wasted in acts like this. Ones who are already flourishing are being given even more. No education centers have been opened to train financially weaker Sikh youth in reciting/preaching Gurbani; rather, Maskeen family, which was already playing in millions, was presented with even more big gifts. These type of gifts were never given to the greats of the likes of Professor Sahib Singh, Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha, Dr. Ganda Singh, S. Narain Singh (Guru Nanak Mission, Patiala) and others. Why only Maskeen Ji was given this great honor? … It’s worth thinking.

Preaching against Gurmat: There are numerous examples of how Maskeen Ji taught wrong meanings of Gurbani, how he told wrong meanings of Gurbani at his own will. Let’s consider a few examples:-

Naam and Kaam: – Sadly, in one of his one-hour lectures Maskeen Ji used to declare Satguru Ji as lover of “Kok Shastra” (ancient unscientific brahminic work). He used to do the blunder of picking incomplete lines from Gurbani for reasoning. He used to present carnal proofs using these. Note this line picked by him, “Baal kanya ko baap pyara….” (596) and now note his explanation, “A daughter loves her father, and a son loves his mother. Fathers love is more for daughter as compared to his love for son, a mothers love is more towards her son as compared to her love for daughter this is because there is deep attraction between opposite sexes” The place from where Maskeen Ji picked this incomplete line, there the actual subject was that of death; sex is not at all referred there. In reality the complete lines are:-

Mai baap ko beta neeka, sasurey chatur jawai ॥ Baal kanniya ko baap piyara bhai ko ati bhai ॥ Hukam bhaya bahur ghar chodya khinn meh bhai parai ॥

Fan of naked idols of Khajuraho: The nudity ridden, carnal-lust instigating idols of the Khajuraho temple in the state of Madhya Pradesh, which were placed there by people who lost their way, are seen as Gurmat by Maskeen Ji. He has openly praised the nudity and the sculptures of these idols and has crossed all limits of morality by using Gurbani wrongfully to provide instances. He has also done the mean act of relating our Gurus with these idols. Our Gurbani has shown us path to live life with self-control. These idols which have been praised by Maskeen Ji break all limits of self-control and represent shameless acts to the public. Yours truly got a chance to see these idols at Khajuraho, the guide of that place was speaking of these indecent carnal-lust ridden idols in the same way as Maskeen Ji and was representing them to be the work of great saints. The guide also mentioned that after seeing these idols for a while, I would become peaceful and then go inside the temple and would have the sight of the God. Yours truly apprehended the guide for his wrongful saying and asked, “You ignorant human! I am an old man of 58 years and watching these idols have made me uneasy and restless. It will take me at least a weak to get normal and peaceful again. What would have been the effect of watching these idols on the young people?” And our Maskeen Ji visualized these idols in accordance with Gurmat.

Can a human become invisible?: In his stories Maskeen ji tells big lie that, “By reciting Naam human being can become as minute as an atom. He can then go anywhere he wants including Moon, Sun, or stars in the flash of an eye. He can minimize or enlarge his body as much as he wants.” Lines used for providing instance are the following: – Parmanoo parjant aakaasheh deep loye sikhandaneh ॥ Gachchen nain bharen Nanak, Nanak bina sadhoo na sidhtey ॥

In reality, Guru Arjun Dev Ji was well aware of the enormous strength of atomic power. The lines above said by Guru Arjun Dev Ji mean that a human being can generate enormous power by understanding how atoms work. Using this strength, humans can travel very long distances in very short time. But the abundance of materials and super fast speeds will not be able to provide any happiness to humans; everlasting happiness will only be achieved from Satguru Ji’s orders.

Blind praise of Devi/Devtey: Maskeen Ji has spoken for hours and hours in the praise of Raam, Krishan, Brahma and Vishnu. He has been promoting King Ram Chander as an ideal human being, has been praising limitlessly the ancient mythological gods. It is sad that he never remembered those who have been cut into pieces by saws, those innocents who have been hanged, those who had to live in jungles, the big and small Sikh holocausts etc. Hindus gods and goddesses were dear to him but in his entire life he did not describe any principle from the Gurbani.

He spread rumors himself that angels come to listen to his lectures: On one hand Maskeen Ji used to tell good things in his lectures, but on the other hand he used to tell unscientific and ludicrous things very often. Recorded audios and videos are witness to my writing. One lie that he often used to tell on his stages is: “angels and gods come to listen my lectures. They are not visible to anybody but just to me”. Maskeen Ji had no regret to tell this one more lie that with faith in Naam a human can become bodyless and within a flash of an eye can go anywhere he wants to. In Maskeen Ji’s own words, “I have seen these type of people”. I don’t know which religion Maskeen Ji had been serving with these kinds of lies? Why he himself could not become bodyless with the power of 40-50 years of his own Naam faith? There would have been no need for automobiles, planes and ships.

Our so called jathedars: What to expect from others to speak against the wrongdoings when all five jathedars (leaders of the five Takhats) were also present there. They are the same jathedars who just three days ago were mud slinging each other, were ready to smash Paggs (turbans) of each other in front of ETC TV channel and our Guru Granth Sahib Ji at Akal Takhat. Someone was engulfed in bribery case, whereas some other was facing the charges of having three wives. The same Vedanti, with the connivance of other jathedars, declared Dhanwant Singh Saint not guilty. A court in Gurdaspur declared this same Dhanwant Singh Saint guilty and pronounced ten years jail with labor and also fined him with ten thousand rupees. A jathedar charged with case of taking bribe questioned another jathedar Iqbal Singh (from Patna) for keeping three wives. Iqbal Singh raged out of Akal Takhat blaming Satguru Ji. In the tribute ceremony of Maskeen Ji, the same Iqbal Singh had again become “Singh Sahib” and was preaching people.

When Maskeen ji was bound by UK Gurudwara Management: The South Hall Gurudwara Management in UK bravely bounded Maskeen Ji telling, “We want to listen Gurmat from you, we do not want to listen to self created stories less we have to cancel the program”. Maskeen Ji replied, "If you want me to talk only about Gurmat then first stop recording all the video films, I cannot talk just about Gurmat while being recorded". The cameras we shut down and he did very good preaching from Gurbani. With his TV channels programs he seemed to be more worried about pleasing his Hindu followers, and remained step-motherly to Sikh philosophy. On these channels he was seen talking more about mythological Hindu gods and goddesses and very little about Guru Sahibaan.

Gurudwara Management to Nirmaliye: Maskeen Ji has written a book on Gurudwara management and has distributed this book free of cost. In that book he mentions that the present Gurudwara management is incompetent and the solution that he mentions in the book is that the Gurudwara Management be given back to "Nirmaliye". Maskeen Ji got education from a "Nirmaliya" teacher and he himself is a follower of "Nirmaliya" sect and is a disciple of Baba Shri Chand. These Nirmalye were the people who spread the "Brahmani" rituals in the Gurudwaras in the past. Maskeen Ji talked about people but has never talked about Panth (Sikh Panth).

    Whomsoever has written this article, you have not understood a word maskeen ji has told. Pity on you.

    • Singh

      As far as I know. Maskeen Ji never declared himself as Brahmgyani. What others are saying and arguing,at the time of very emotional moments, should hardly be any issue. In my opinion, writer is influenced by negativity while portraying Maskeen Ji and his work. Sometimes we have to go in depth to understand the true meaning. To understand Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, one has to go in depth to get the true meaning. In fact, in last 60 years we Sikhs have lost Simran in our lives, and that has perpetuated negativity. It's all about thoughts. Simran is the key to create harmoney in our religion. Simran leads us to WaheGuru Ji. So may I take this opportunity to state:

      Lesser the traffic of thoughts in our mind, easier is the journey of life. However, if we stop this traffic of thoughts in our minds – just impose curfew on these thoughts, we see a path leading to WaheGuru Ji starts appearing. Once the path appears, do not let this Disappear as we have to walk on a journey to meet WaheGuru Ji who has helped us to stop our thoughts and shown us this path. It is his KIRPA/ Blessing that we were able to see this path.  Now to tread on this path, we need to go to the "SANGAT". Without Sangat, this journey could be treacherous and we can fall back in the traffic of thoughts. In Sangat, we do Simran together, and our journey begins to meet WaheGuru Ji. With hard work of Simran(killing thoughts) together, one day we notice and realize that we are at the door steps of WaheGuru Ji. WaheGuru Ji wanted us to meet him, that is why,  he has brought  us here. Now here, we have to wait for his call to get in, meet and hug him. To avoid a long wait to meet him at his door, we need to unwrap ourselves out of "Three Gunas- TAMO, RAJO and SATO". 

      Simran continues….and one day, our eyes open and we found ourselves in his arm. The joy of being in his arm lift us out of the cycle of birth and rebirth and Our Journey is complete!!!!

    Religion is the peel of the banana and Spirituality is the Inside of the banana… What is happening is that we are stuck up with the peel and are fighting on the color, texture, etc of the peel…. The basis of all religions is to experience spirituality and not fight on literature, God powers and myth. stories……I pray to the almighty to give wisdom to all (including myself 🙂

  • inderjeet kaur

    hey friend, if you’ve really heard maskin g’s katha, how couldn’t you notice his often used gurbani quotes? he used quotes from different other sources just to clarify Gurbani in a better way.. He poured out the essence of Gurbani as much as he could..

    May Waheguru ji enlighten us all..

    • Khaira

      he used quotes from different other
      sources just to clarify Gurbani
      DOES MY SACHE PATSHA’S GURBANI NEED OTHER SOURCER FOR ITS CLARIFICATION? its not a subject its Panth khalsa ji…..
      can Mirza ghalib’s shayer clerify Gurbani in good way?

      • Gagandeep Singh

        Mr. Khaira.
        MY SACHE PATSHA’S GURBANI DOES NOT NEED OTHER SOURCER FOR ITS CLARIFICATION, but unfortunately we humans need it to understand Gurbani. By annnying other followers of god, you are really annoying the path that sache patshah ji shown us. Manas ki Jaat sabaho ek hi pehchanbo !!!!

    ha ha ha what a joke. may b the meaning of brahmgiani was misunderstood by maskeen’s relatives and second thing Dasam Granth is authenticated by Supreme Akal Takht Sahib.But i have never listened him telling those stories during katha. can u mention his any katha in which he is doing so, meaninglessly. it is your duty to prove iff u had accused him.

  • Charanpreet

    this is really funny,writer of this didnt even listen one of sant maskeen ji katha,do you know how many times he had to go to the jail for sikhs, In 1984, they banned him punjab, shimla, new delhi, uttar pradesh, he was a really brave man, and a watch his katha on 1984

  • Amandeep Singh

    Waheguru g ka khalsa Waheguru g ki fateh , today i read this article doesn’t know who wrote this but on having a glance on it i was really shocked the way this person has wrote this article. I wondered how a person specially Maskeen g who dedicated whole of his life to preach GURBANI to sikh sangat even at the times when he was not well could be criticised.
    Maskeen g was a person who had a deep knowledge of other religions also other than GURU GRANTH SAHIB G, and he was the person who always emphasized that how GURBANI is different from other religions ………. May GOD give Sumat to the writer of this article…….

    I wish instead of cretising any one like maskin sahib .you should done the meditation and study GURBANI BY YOURSELF.You will find out what is truth.This article is is like kinderdarden student will say about Phd professer.
    Even In Gurbani Guru sahib says that GURBANI VIRLO VACHAERSI JE KEO GURMUK HOAE.I can understand your position.
    So please do not wast your life by try to explain those subjects about what you have no knowlage.
    It is just like a blind man who can not see light and he says because I can not see so there is no Sun.
    But my brother do to doctor,(SHRI GURU GUNTH SAHIB)and request that O GOD! please provide me those eyes with with I can see and feel your true picture,
    I am sure if you request from your heart the Guru is great He can provide you the EYE and you will find out by yourself that WHO WAS RIGHT “MASKIN SAHIB OR YOU,
    Do not find the week points of anyone we all are human beings .STUDY GUBANI BUT BEFORE THAT LEAVE YUR NERROWMINDNESS. We can not get the happiness of GOD by so called knowledge.We have to (Bhait )Give him our EGO.
    May God help you to understand the truth.I feel sorry for you.

  • This person’s criticism of Sant Singh Maskeen Ji are ruthless and appear to be out of jealousy. He has obviously not understood Maskeen Ji well.Brahm Giani is one who becomes free from jaman marna and when he dies his soul leaves the body and joins God.Maskeen Ji never meant that one becomes God.
    Stop this slander. You are committing a sin.

  • mona

    I am shocked to read this article.I am a hindu by birth but I have been listening to maskeenji’s lectures since many years. One thing I have learnt from him is if you are a true seeker you can follow any religion. Now he is no more, you have no right to cast aspersions on his name. If you cannot understand his teachings just keep quiet, try to make your mind broad and be willing to learn.

  • malkeet singh

    naam japo, kirat karo, wand shako, sikhism is not in blaming or criticizing any body. one who cannot sit and meditate for half an hour has no right to comment on maskeen ji. he taught the right path to million and what these people are doing here?

  • R Kaur

    I feel so sorry to read this article. Whoever you are – why do you care so much about what was done for Maskeen ji by the world? My friend – enlighten yourself. Your words are so hard against a person who you do not know well. Those were not “lectures” for your kind information. Do what you have to do…why are you spreading wrong information everywhere by bad-mouthing someone. Beware of your karmas.

    It appears that you have some advanced knowledge on Guru Granth Sahib ji …and if that were the case, then please help yourself.

    This is utter nonsense. You should listen to his explanation of Japuji. No body has explained it the way he his. He is far better and honest then all the looters who sit in the Gurudwaras and make money, have no connection with God or Guru.

  • Sushant

    What an obnoxious person you are … God shall punish you very badly for speaking ill of His child Giani Sant Maskeen Ji… Maskeen ji would simply pity you and pray to God for His wisdom to shine on you. You are demon possessed for sure.

  • Jaspreet Kaur

    The only thing dat is true is dat his lectures resembled osho’s books…but dat does nt matter till u r doing fairness wid ur subject…. N he was very true towards his preachings …. He had masters in dat…!!! He had never preached wrong or unethical if u listen it st. 4m ur heart n nt brain..!

  • Devjyot Singh

    And Maskeen ji only took selected words from Osho’s works.. if anyone here has ever read Osho’s work and have listened him..then he/she must be knowing that.. Osho was never in favor of ‘Jaap’ but Maskeen ji emphasised on doing ‘Jaap’.. Maskeen ji only took those other references which also agreed upon Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

  • Dharambir singh

    I would request Singh sabha canada to remove this article from their site… It is hurting sentiments of Sikh sangat…. Waheguru Ji

  • Mandeep Singh

    Today’s so called gurbani scholars just can read gurbani word by word. they can understand gurbani grammatically but there life is not according to gurbani, they haven’t the in depth knowledge of gurbani. maskeen ji have full faith in gurbani, that’s why he gave examples from other religions also. Remember that other can also attain the highest stage(Sach khand) by practicing their rituals. Even Bhagat Rama nand, Parmanand was reciting Ram-Ram, but their teachings are in Guru Granth Sahib. Bhagat Farid & Bhikhan ji was Sufi saints,then why you read their teachings. Give up narrow-mindeddness and love all,repect all. Also Nirmal Samparda is created by Guru Gobind Singh himself, the followers of baba Srichand are Udasis. just read any book from any nirmalay saint and then you realize what in depth knowlede they have, not the artificial like you. Also read Gurbani, many times saits are compared to the Almigty.
    some foolish people can never understand the teachings of Guru Gobind Singh in Dasam Granth.
    This article shows your ignorance only.
    may Waheguru bless all us so we can understand the true meaning of Guru Granth Sahib as well as Dasam Granth Sahib.

    when i heard well known ragi balwinder singh rangilla mentioned in his katha… “bhagwaan krishan neh…” i knew something was wrong. one of the contributing factor about sant singh maskeen rise to fame was his name .. SANT ! we had been hoodwinked terribly for so many years.
    from mahants, british stooges then nirmalaas and now damdami takhsalees who are at the helm of akaal takhat ! best joke is that there are so many negative comments here from the truth about sant singh maskeen. no wonder we are in such a mess ! blindly following sants n babas. better update yourselves. thanks for such reports admin sahib jeeo

    Gurbani is so great sea that nobody can touch its infinite indepth nature. Different preachers are trained differently by different ways by differnt pious persons to propage the message of Gurbani.
    That’s what Maskinji adopted the style.

    I have listened to many katha’s from Giani Maskeen Ji. he has really struck a cord inside me. whilst reading this I can agree that through CD’s and media selling he may have made a lot of money but he was a true philosopher and a philosopher enlightens others through various stories and inspiration. yes, he has used stories, like Mansoor, laila majanur, heer Ranja and mentioning brahma, vishnu and maheshwar but highlighting they never did exist in human form. He has spoken out against 1984 attack very fiercely, he has spoken out against hindu mythology and caste and radha soami cult only to have false propaganda published against him by the radha soami’s. he has also said that he is not a sant but can recognise a sant. i’m open minded so i will look into this further but i won’t discredit Giani Ji so quickly.

  • u r a enlightened fellow but u missed out one detail,Satguru interacts with us thru various human roops.it is we who have to understand and accept the truth n leave aside the untruths,for only then can v be called Guru Disciple.

    Hello, you should be ashamed of what you have written. You have committed grave sin by uttering derogatory words for the great personality Sant Singhji Maskeen. The people like you, why have no knowledge at all,write such types of things, you have not at all understood as to what Maskeenji was. He was the great man who was never afraid of speaking the truth. He had great respect for all noble persons and the way he preached, shows how much he was talented and having knowledge of almost all spheres of life and difference between right and wrong. If you think yourself to be more talented and fully acquainted with Gurmat, then why donot you recite the kathas on the stages. If you do this, certainly you will get severe beatings from the sangat. Leave criticising anyone, this is my advise for you, get up and think of the down trodden people, help to educate them, to make them grow. No one in this era can dare to compete with Maskeenji. Please do not dare again to write all such nonsense.

    one thing which is true is that u can see osho in maskeen ji’s speach…but he always supported gurbani.

  • Arvinder Singh

    He was a man hard to understand, He had something to do with anti Gyani Bhag Singh Ambalewale (influenced Jathedar to excommunication)Gyani Maan Singh Joher disappearance, also being very claver diplomate he had full control of media (hindivadi katha) that would not survived nowadays.

  • Puneet

    Guru Gobind Singh ‘Sab Sikhan ko hukam hai, Guru Manyo Granth’ not Dasam granth. Why sangat need a middleman? I think Guru thought that their Sikhs are intelligent and can read/understand Baani and Books. But SIKHS are now laziest they need videos/audios on tv/internet. Saint word used in Baani for Guru/GOD/Sadh Sangat not for any human.
    Akal Purakh in every form so should we bow head to dog,cat,pig,sparrow,crow? What about those humans who are dacoit, thieves, rapists? His light is in every form. SUN rays touch everybody good,bad,ugly. Can you touch SUN or it affects SUN? Maskeen was a human, might be many good things but not complete and ‘Bhulan andar sab ko, abhul guru kartar’. Don’t trust blindly and completely human.

  • Harpreet Singh

    Sir I was also of similar views till some 4 years ago. I had studied whole of Guru Granth Darpan by Prof. Sahib Singh ji. I studied some 1000 books(one thousand) on Gurbani & also non Sikh writers on Sikhi. Bhai veer singh ji & almost all Sikh writers missionaries . I did not agree to his views regarding ghosts & some parts of DG. But when I started hearing him I was amazed at his style of Katha which forced each human whether Sikh,Hindu,Muslim,Christian, Buddhist any other religion or even atheist he/she was compelled to hear him again & again. I personally rank him in the group of Prof.Sahib Singh, Bhai Kahan Singh Nabha, Bhai Veer Singh almost all the scholars of 20th century.He could make me realise how Gurbani is for whole humanity while of 7.5 billion inhabitants of this earth not only for Sikhs. Had he wished he could have started his own Dera which would have been much much bigger than Radha Soamis & even Sri Sri Ravishanker but he was a true Sikh I the Guru he stayed true to Sikhi. Hear him on meat,1984,Beas Dera he was a true fearless Sikh of the Guru . We should take inspiration from him & try to propagate Sikhi to 7.5 billion people of this Universe in the language they understand using metaphors they are fimiliar with. He showed us it is possible

  • jatinder

    Friends, what was sant maskeen ji, only God and Sant Maskeen g knew. No one else can know. But we can just feel some wonderful kathas of his which inspired so many to move to meditation path…..that’s it….Raise your conscious levels, love all humanity….Don’t be baharmukhi, be antarmukhi my friend, try to know where you are bad, instead of seeing outside…God Bless you….and May God take hatred out of your heart….Meditate Meditate Meditate and then listen again to maskeen g..

  • jatinder

    The author’s problem is that he is “Karam Khandi”, if he raises his consciousness to “Gyaan Khand”, then he can understand the Katha of Maskeen g, and will forget whether he copied someone etc etc..

  • Jatinder Pal Singh

    This writer seems to be from Punjab village. Because what I have seen (Including my relatives as well) in punjab villages. All are fans of Sant Samaj Baba and they can only listen to waja dholki kirtan but do not use their brain to understand Sikh Philosophy in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. These Babas are spread in all over Punjab and they only talk about Gurbani which is in typical punjabi language. They cannot say a word about gurbani that is in Arabic, Persian, Brij and Sansrit because they are illiterate and also they dominating punjabi village people and do not want them to use their brains. This is the reason, this writer is saying when talking about other religions by Maskeen Ji, is Brahamini Matt. In abroad (Forgive me) but most of the people are from Punjab villages. Please let me know if someone thinks that I mentioned irrelevant thing here, I will make it relevant for him/her using other words.

  • Jatinder Pal Singh

    Apologize for not mentioning that the writer has written some false about Maskeen Ji as well. E.g. He says Idiols listen to my katha and Management Committee should be given to Nirmale. I have read that book and there is no where mentioned like this.

  • Harkirat

    I am agree with admin, the people who never listen osho can’t accept it. The people who against it nd if they have guts thn listen any audio of osho, I’m not telling follow him but in very simple way i said go against osho as much as u can but at very inner u see maskeen nd osho are same…

  • Tigerjeet

    I found writer a very intelligent person.He understands the difference between Sikh philosphy & anti Sikh philosophy.A lot of things are to be revealed about maskeen's anti sikhi works.In the next 20 years 80% of the Sikhs will understand the difference between the very Sikh philosphy and the Nirmala,udasi,brahmanic traditions & late sant Singh maskeen will lose the so called accumulated respect. I have done a lot of research on the Sikh philosophy so I can differentiate between right & wrong. If i were to define sant Singh maskeen in a line,my definition would be "a very intelligent,moneyminded, impostor who despite being a reciter of Gurbani couldn't understand the ideology & the message of the Sikh Gurus.

  • Harjinder Kaur

    Tigerjeet you hit the nail on the head with your description of Maskeen.  The only way Sikhs are going to see the difference between who is preaching Gursikhi and who is an imposter is to do their own research.  If Maskeen had taken on board any  Gurbani Sikhiya and done correct parchaar, he would most likely have been ex-communicated by the So called Jathedars of Sri Akaal Takht, not appreciated and awarded!!!  This is the way our Akaal Takht has sadly been hi-jacked.  The true preachers are punished and silenced, yet those who are taking us further away from Gurbani are being rewarded and given fame! Wake up Sikhs and recognise the enemy!!!!

  • Sikh

    Waheguru ji ka Khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh… If this article was written to get attention then I must say you have got it … But in wrong way … 

    I have never met Maskeenji but have only heard his vichar on tv and youtube. In his every gurmat vichar .. He says lines from Guru Granth Sahib ji and has also preached to trust and believe in God's words written in Guru Granth Sahib ji … It's very easy to criticize someone .. But very hard to appreciate .. Waheguru meher kare. 

  • TrueIndianSikh

    The most stupid article ever written on such a great soul in Sikh Panth. Before sladnering such a noble person the writer who pretends to be a champion in Khalsa panth and it's knowledge should have remembered the line "Khalsa wohi jo Nindah Tyage", and here the Ninda is coming not against an ordinary person but one of the noblest panth prachahark maskeenji. It's very much evident that he hardly knows anything about his Kathas and quite possible that he might have not listened to it ever, and his lies are caught red handed while mentioning Maskeenji's "fondness" for the idols of khajuraho and relating our Gurus to it? I mean is he in his senses. How is he speaking without any proof, if he is so confident he should have quoted the exact line and must have provided the link to the Katha on YouTube or any other channel. Doesn't he feel ashmed while writing all such stuff. And this brahm Giani logic in which writer tries to assert that his followers use to project him as Brahm Gyani logic is so illogical altogther. As one commentor very rightly pointed out above that his following had increased so much that he could have even surpassed even Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, but always maintaned the quintessential, the very basic etho of Sikhi that is keeping Sri Guru Granth Sahib above everyone else. And the point regarding Osho, well let me tell the writer that I am a reader of osho too and never I can say anywhere that he or his words or his thougths resembled Osho and whenever he use to talk anything pertaining to Osho then he would always mention him as "Acharya Rajneesh". And in any case if writer finds this offensive then what is the problem in mentioning the thoughts of some one else if done in good spirit or if it gives a profound message. Will he also question Guru Arjan Devji too who had put in a lot of Bhagat's and Sant's Banis, so that his Sikhs can have knowledge about other faiths and be open in their thinking towards spirituality.

    Rest all replies have been answered by fellow Gursikhs which need not to be repeated again and again, it will be better if soon the writer realizes his mistake and withdraws this article as soon as possible

    What a senseless, baseless discussion.
    In these difficult times masking Jee was the one telling to believe in God no sect, caste or creed. By the the way why making money by lawful and just means is also not wrong. Yes u do have right to speech by use it cautiously. Such comments are nothing bt show ur poor knowledge on the life of this saint. Maybe he was not perfect and when I say this I think I m quite generous on this post, but believe me he was way more precise and excellent than the post u have articulated.

  • Aman Singh

    Only a Manmukh can write this kind of nonsensical article which is full of blatant lies and propaganda. These kind of people can never be Sikhs . Giani Sant singh Maskeen is only Katha vachak i have heard in my life whose words are so close to Gurbani . It's pity that people like this writer are so blind that they cannot see the Real and ONLY Gem we Sikhs have seen in last 75 years of our history. 

  • Gurmat Veechar

    I just feel sad and feel pity about this kind of discussion and article. Sant Maskeen Ji is the only Katha Vachak I have heard in my life and I can say he had greatly helped me in my understanding of Gurbani. I can only wish he stayed longer so that he could help us in understanding Gurbani better.I think people who wrote this article have this nasty habit of showing off Sikhi by talking about it, talking about Khalsa,talking about Amrit but in essence they are totally empty of Gurbani. I really appreciate all who have understood the Kathas of Giani Sant Maskeen Ji and hope there are more like Maskeen Ji in our Sikh Dharma so that we don’t just learn more about Gurbani but also the Historical things that are associated with Gurmat.
    Thank You

  • Rest all aside , how can the writer say bad things about Dasam Granth …. Is the writer okay in the head ??? Does he even understand ABC of spirituality …. I am sure he doesn't even know that Atma I a always considered as the Wife and ParamAtma as the husband ……. And these people write about Religion …. Pen in the hand of idiots … And a platform to write on the Net …. So that thousands come to know about their idiotic thought ! Pity the writer … Yu will have to take 1000 births more to understand  spirituality and then after that yu will know truth 

  • All pity for writer, when ten gurus were alive some people does not left them for criticing, sant maskeen ji to Phir bhi sant hai writer should first consider the meaning of maskeen from gurbani,brahm giyani aap parmeshwar can also mean that there is no difference between brehmgyani and parmeshwar any one can become part of parmeshwar by following his path doesn’t mean parmeshwar hi brahm giyani Ho sakya hai ,a human being become parmeshwar when he attains brahgyan, every one intercept it according to his thinking, but sant ji himself choose d word maskeen for himself rather than brehmgyani .and have u read gurbani ever it talks about everything aspect of human life very boldly u should read gurbani to find the real answer rather reading osho gurbani very boldly talks about earthly pleasures to criticise them to lead the right way it talks about man s viraj and the way creatures are born it discusses every thing and every aspect of human life as maskeen ji did but people like writer misinterpret according to their own dirty thinking

    A completely misguiding article…let me tell u one thing…truth will prevail!..your translator is ‘akashdeep Singh aulakh’ …not a Sikh according to gurmat ..we don’t follow caste system…Maskeen Ji might have read osho..but he had read numerous scholars eg. Socrates..it was his quest for knowledge that he read them.Even our Guru Ji told us to read other religious books…Maskeen Ji did not call him brahmgiani..it was his followers…and u r challenging dasham granth..( again a proof that u r not a Sikh) because kam is discussed in it…let me remind u that u r also the product of kam…n there a libraries in name of Kahan Singh nabha and Ganda Singh in Punjabi University Patiala..ie they r also revered…and it is a saying that ‘ made bande vich v koi gun changa hunda hai’ but it is sad that u could not find even a single good thing about Maskeen Ji…I request readers of this article to themself watch the videos of his lectures and decide on their own..as i suspect that these people have their own propaganda to preach.

    • Raja Singh Bedi

      Exactly! What a deceiving article this is. Sant Gyani Maskeen Singh Ji was a great human being, a great Sikh, a great scholar and a great Kathavachak. The thing is, truth is not something that only exists in one form. There is some truth in Hinduism, some truth in Islam, some truth in Buddhism, etc. but, the ultimate complete truth exists in the form of Guru Granth Sahib. If Osho uttered some of that truth, doesn’t mean anybody who repeats it, agrees completely with their ideas. They could run parallel on some thoughts but Gyani Maskeen Ji never fully supported Osho. In some of his lectures, he in fact made negative points on them but he never refrained from crediting people if and when it was due. This article here is just another propoganda to mislead Sikhs so as to break our spirits and make us question such great philosophers and jewels of our Panth.

ਸਿੰਘ ਸਭਾ ਇੰਟਰਨੈਸ਼ਨਲ ਕੈਨੇਡਾ ਪ੍ਰੋ: ਗੁਰਮੁਖ ਸਿੰਘ ਤੇ ਗਿਆਨੀ ਦਿੱਤ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਨੂੰ ਸਮਰਪਿਤ ਹੈ। ਇਨ੍ਹਾ ਹੀ ਸੂਰਮਿਆਂ ਅਤੇ ਭਾਈ ਕਾਹਨ ਸਿੰਘ ਨਾਭਾ ਦੀ ਬਦੌਲਤ ਸਾਰੇ ਭਾਰਤ ਵਿਚ ਸਿੰਘ ਸਭਾਵਾਂ ਬਣਾਈਆਂ ਗਈਆਂ ਤੇ ਗੁਰਦਵਾਰੇ ਅਜ਼ਾਦ ਕਰਵਾਏ ਗਏ। ਲੀਰੋ- ਲੀਰ ਅਤੇ ਲਹੂ-ਲੁਹਾਣ ਹੋਈ ਸਿੱਖੀ ਅੱਜ ਫਿਰ ਤੋਂ ਮਹੰਤ ਨਰੈਣੂ ਦੇ ਖੂਨੀ ਸਾਕੇ ਦੀ ਯਾਦ ਦੁਹਰਾਉਂਦੀ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਸਾਕਾ ਨਨਕਾਣਾ ਕਰਨ ਲਈ ਸਾਨੂੰ ਵੰਗਾਰਦੀ ਹੈ । ਹੈ ਕੋਈ ਸੂਰਮਾ, ਜੋ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦੇ ਮਿਸ਼ਨ ਨੂੰ ਘਰ ਘਰ ਪਹੁੰਚਾਉਣ, ਅੰਧਵਿਸ਼ਵਾਸੀਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਬਿਬੇਕ-ਬੁੱਧੀ, ਮਨੁੱਖਤਾ ਨੂੰ ਵਿਚਾਰਵਾਨ ਬਣਾਉਣ ਲਈ ਸਾਥ ਦੇਣ ਲਈ ਤਿਆਰ ਹੋਵੇ ?
