36 Principles of Baba Nand Singh Ji

1) Sri Guru Granth Sahib shall have to be worshipped as a living Satguru Nanak Dev ji.

2) Prayers for getting rid of all worries, diseases, pains and poverty etc. shall have to be sincerely made
before Sri Guru Granth Sahib, fully believing that Satguru Nanak Dev ji is sitting there.

3) Whatever you eat or drink should be offered to Sri Guru Granth Sahib before you take the same.

4) The Satguru wants to test your intentions, devotion and sincerity. He is not in need of any worldly things. Whatever you place before him is a token of your affection for him. He is the True Giver.

5) One must spend at least two and a half hour in reciting Nit Nem, Sukhmani Sahib, uttering Waheguru, repeating the first stanza of Japji Sahib and performing paath of Sri Guru Granth Sahib.

6) One should recite Gurbani with utter devotion, purity of mind and body and should correctly read it.

7) The ragis should regularly sing these with devotion and with intention of pleasing the Satguru.

8) Those who are engaged in reciting Paath of Sri Guru Granth Sahib from the beginning to the end, as well as the singers of divine hymns must not cherish greed of any kind. The Sangat or the devotees etc. should serve them according to their capacity.

9) The Pooranmashi should be celebrated with devotion and in a befitting manner.

10) Every Sikh with his family members shall have to take Khande Da Amrit only then he can seek the protection of the Guru.

11) The children must be taught Gurmukhi.

12) Gurdwaras should be established in every village and town.

13) Offerings in cash before Sri Guru Granth Sahib are prohibited.

14) The names of the children should be such in which some words denoting piety and religious tinge appear, such as, Gurmukh Singh, etc.

15) The Sikh should surrender his self to the Guru

16) The Sikh who serves the Guru with full devotion will get his grace.

17) The Guru will wipe off the sins of the True Sikh, when he leaves his I-amness and adopts you and ˜yours. In other words, when he leaves his ego and does not say, I have done this. This is mine. He should say Everything belongs to God. He does everything. He confers all gifts.

18) A true Sikh is a true yogi as well as a king.

19) A true Sikh must never forget God and the guru and should pray to God, “I am at fault, I shall abide by your will, I accept your orders.

20) A true Sikh shall not look with evil eyes at others women or men.

21) The Guru helps the true Sikh and his protective powers accompany him at all places and times.

22) A Sikh should look towards the Guru for all kinds of protections.

23) Do no indulge in slandering or backbiting.

24) Collect virtues and abandon vices.

25) Never forget that you will die sooner or later.

26) One must sincerely serve one's parents. In this connection, Pauri 13 of vaar 37 of Bhai Gurdas may be read, which tells us that if the man does not serve his parents sincerely, he will get no benefit by reading or hearing scriptures. That his meditation will bear no fruity, that his going to pilgrimage is useless and that he shall have to undergo punishments of transmigration.

27) The man should be faithful to his wife and the wife should be faithful to her husband

28) Believe firmly that all the Sikh Gurus are embodiments of God.

29) For the Sikh, his Guru is King of kings.

30) Leave pride. You cannot know when the mind will adopt evil. So never boast of your virtues.

31) Never use intoxicants of any kind.

32) God and the Guru hear sincere prayers of a sincere devotee.

33) One must leave one's worldly wisdom and adopt that of the Guru.

34) Never adopt the profession of a beggar.

35) Remember and sing the excellences, virtues and praises of God and the Guru.

36) The man must put his utmost efforts to gain the true object of human life, which is, the merger of the soul with the Supreme Soul.

13) Offerings in cash before Sri Guru Granth Sahib are prohibited.
We aren't supposed to give money as a Offering?
Who exatly is Baba Nand Ji?

Thank you
Dass:i hope otpreka singh will be able to give you all the answers!!!!!!!!!!!thanks
Dhan Dhan Baba Nand Singh Jee!

for more info see:

The reason Baba Nand Singh Jee prohibited offerings of cash was so that the Guru Ghar's sevadaars would not be tempted by greed/attachment or lobh/moh for the money... instead they encouraged offerings of food, flowers etc, so that they could be used to benefit the sangat and to adorn Guru Sahib Jee... and would not create problems in the running of the Gurdwara.

"Hum Santan Kee Rein Pyaare Hum Santan Kee Sharnaa"

Waheguru Waheguru Waheguru
I was not aware about the cash offerings. But why these are not prohibited in Nanak thaths as these are against baba ji's principles?
thanks yaar but cash wala funda samaj ni aaya nanak sar which ta rs nahi charde ..................... baki DHAN DHAN BABA NAND SINGH JI
jivaa ke bhaave mara mai ha babe nand singh da kirtaniya.

kirtan gava din te raati, mukh ujla hove sital baati, din-te-raat japa, mai ha baabe nand singh ka kirtaniya.

If no cash offerings are being preached, how will the gurdwaras pay for electricity and gas? You cannot expect individual members of the sangat to donate these essentials. Gurdwaras (like any other building and business) need cash to run, do they not?
sanget ji
ik vaari in ealry sarting cash maatha tekya janda c very sirst day when baba ji saw ki loki nimarta naal nahi teekde like li mostly people sutdene na..oh baba ji nu gal dil te lag hgai ne mere gurtu nanak de age koi paisa sute nahi guru payareo baba ji da bahot pyaar ji guru sahebaan naal te eh vi niraadar hai n fr that day it was stooped saget apna dasvand guru ghar de jaandi hai gupta sewa if someone wants but koi sewadaar app ji manda its is againts babaj is principle
Once I sent post why cash offerings are not prohibited? I am happy with all the Maryadas of Nanaksar. Guru ji know better and cash is required for many things. It could be dasvand of sadh sangat. It was general question arised in my tush mind. I have no more doubts or questions about this.
Dhan baba Nand Singh ji, Dhan dhan baba Isher singh Ji...Bhul Chuk maaf... Waheguru waheguru...
dhan baba nand singh ji maharaj teri jai hove
