Puratan Reinsbhai

Waheguroo Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguroo Ji Ki Fateh!

Reinsbhai is the time, for us to feed our soul and to take the full laha of Sat Sangat.Iv personally know some diffrence of the Puratan times and our present time Reinsbhai.Heres an article which was posted on the forum by some singh.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

I have heard that during puratan rainsbai Kirtan, Sikhs who performed the Kirtan and Tabla sewa used to prepare themselves before attending the rainsbai program by spending extra time in simran and learning the deep translation and Padd & Chadd of shabad to be performed and followed the life style according to the shabads.

During kirtan, Kirtaniya just closed the eyes and facing toward Sahib Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, did the Kirtan keeping fear and love of Guru Ji on ground (no stage). Kirtaniya repeated the each line of shabad in very clear voice so that shabad abides in all the sangat's heart and made sure that Vaaja and tabla did not become so much loud that sangat did not listen to the shabad. Kirtaniya spent quite a time in simran, did the simran in such a manner that all the sangat could participate for longer duration. Sikh doing tabla sewa also sung along with sangat and performed the sewa in rhyme.

I heard that once Bhai Sahib Randir Singh Ji was doing simran in Kirtan, suddenly stopped using the Vaaja and become silent and then everyone in the sangat started doing simran with Sas Giras for over 1 hour, there was complete silent in the sangat.

After kirtan, Kirtaniya tried to hide from comments from sangat and Sangat was also so wonderful they just expressed themselves without speaking even single word.

Now it is all different, we all know what has been done these days.
Its true that the keertani that does keertan should always do khoj of the shabad,so that we understand the meaning and when we sing Keertan, our mind and heart becomes one and the Shabad would effect the listener and us.

In this modern day, i know of one keertani that does this.Just one , but im sure theres more but just Gupt.When we hear keertan sang by them, our mind becomes relax, and that a sign our Atma is receiving its food.

I personally do keertan once a blue moon, but dont do all this.I would really like to try doing this.Bhai Jeevan Singh is one puratan keertani that i would say really leaves an effect on my life.I love hearing him sing Keertan and nowdays I hear Bhai Sahibs keertan alot.Keertani like Bhai Avtar Singh Ji, whos popular for Gurmat Sanget is another example.I personally havent heard of Bhai Sahibs keertan but have heard how it leaves impact on some people.

Bhai Harpreet Singh is another wicked keertani.He is a set example for our modern keertanis to come.My friend once told me, you really have to listen to Bhai Sahibs keertan, cause i dont really hear Bhai Harpreet Singh much, but do love his keertan.After hearing Bhai Sahibs keertan, the same feeling of which i had after hearing Bhai Jeevan Singh Jis keertan was amazing.

Iv also heard that Puratan times, there were no time setting like this keertani does for this this hours.Im sure they still follow somewhere around the world, but not here.Here time is very precious for some.LOL.

Well thats all i guess.Iv spoken to much.LOL.Hope to have some Reinsbhai here some day.I have only went to one Reinsbhai and that 3 years or so back.It was amazing, but i didnt understand the true meaning on Reinsbhai Keertan.Maharaj Kirpa, hope more keertan programs to be set.

Bhul Chuk Maaf
