Mulmantra Gurmukhi Spellings
Har Simirit Kaur I noticed that you did some edits with the Gurmukhi version of the Mulmantra. I think you might not have your computer setup correctly. The spellings are not showing up correctly and some other characters are being added.
To setup your computer to use Unicode Gurmukhi follow these instructions
I did a screen captures to show you what I am seeing. I want to make sure that this is what you see when you are on the Mool_Mantar page.

WJKF, welcome to SikhiWiki! I noted that you added the following para to the Vegetarianism article: " Guru Nanak discouraged hypocrital Pandits who condemned people because they ate meat, as learned from Malar M 1 (Ung 1289-1290)'The fool argues about flesh and meat but they know nothing about meditation and spiritual wisdom.' "
I've removed it from the article, because, though you are correct, the article discusses this particular ang and sakhi in more detail later on, and so for the purposes of avoiding repitition, I've removed it. WJKF --Navroop Singh 06:16, 25 May 2005 (Central Daylight Time)
WJKF, I hope my changing of your edits doesn't deter you from continuing adding to SikhiWiki! For the Dasam Granth article, you wrote (bold):
The Dasam Granth contains 1428 pages and is the believed by some Sikhs to be collection of the writings of the 10th Patshah, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. The reason why some do not believe it is all the works of Guru Gobind Singh Ji is because his name is not written in the hymns, as the names of authors are found in the hymns of Guru Granth Sahib, and the common style of Punjabi poets. Some Sikhs believe that Guru Gobind Singh works may be present in some parts of Dasam Granth. It contains his Jaap Sahib, the Akal Ustat or praise of the Creator, the Vachitar Natak or Wonderful Drama, in which the Guru gives an account of his parentage, his divine mission, and the battles in which he had been engaged. There is much Hindu Pandit philosophy throughout the Dasam Granth that very few people understand.
The reason I have reverted the article back to it's original form is because:
- The initial statements regarding the Dasam Granth should be of the opinion of the Akal Takht, which is that the writings contained in the Dasam Granth are all the works of Guru Gobind Singh
- Though an author's name is not mentioned at the end of the verse, the bani's do begin with 'Sri Mukhvak Pathsahi 10'
- I'm fairly sure (will need to check) that there are banis in the SGGS that do not have the author's name at the end
- Bhai Mani Singh's letter confirms that the writings are those of Guru Gobind Singh (see further into the article)
If you want to add info that disputes anythings, add it under the section title 'The Controversy' or discuss it on the discussion page. WJKF --Navroop Singh 07:06, 25 May 2005 (Central Daylight Time)
