Neal Stephenson is a best-selling author, futurist, tech geek and swordsman whose works include Cryptonomicron, Seveneves, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash. He has also co-written several other books and graphic novels which we discuss in this episode. His latest book, Termination Shock goes into depth and detail about Sikh martial arts, which he had to research during the Covid lockdowns.

Out of all the apocryphal writings I've collected, I think the Odes of Solomon is the most beautiful, inspiring and inspired. It is the would-be book of New Testament psalms! The Book of the Odes has been described as the first known hymn-book of early Christianity. They have nothing to do with "Solomon" but somewhere-along-the-way got mislabeled and assigned to the genre of Old Testament Apocrypha as the Odes represent one of the earliest of Christian documents near the beginning of the Jesus movement within Judaism and so composed before a time when there were many Jewish or Christian writings associated with a "new covenant", and long before the concept of a New Testament canon or collection of scriptures was conceived of. Thus, this collection of psalms was named in a way that's reminiscent of how some scriptures were assigned names during the time of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the pseudepigraphical literature. This indicates a very early date of composition. The Odes of Solomon consist of 41 psalms. The Odes are believed to have originated in either Antioch or Edessa in Syriac-Aramaic most likely during the First Century AD. One scholar (James Charlesworth) said of the Odes, "Here are some of the most beautiful songs of peace and joy that the world possesses." The New Testament scholar Bentley Layton says that the Odes were considered to be inspired scripture and were chanted by Christians who lived in Syria and all around Mesopotamia about 2,000 years ago. J. Rendel Harris, the discoverer of one Syriac-Aramaic manuscript of the Odes, said the Odes were eventually included in the Sahidic Bible of Egypt. These ecstatic hymns remind me of Rumi or Sufi love poetry in the tradition of "the lover and the Beloved." They also remind me of the Sikh scriptures (Adi Granth) and mystic poetry of the Sants. Many have adopted the practice of contemplating the verses of the Odes and report being brought to a deeper level of devotion (bhakti); being caught up in a love-affair with God, the Ocean of Love. That's also been my experience.

There are several forces at work to break up India into separate ethno-religious states. The odd thing here is that the vast majority of Sikhs in the Punjab really enjoy being Indian. Yet, there is a small minority that want to create Khalistan, a Sikh theocracy. However, the real problem is that a large number of Sikhs in North America are strong backers of the idea; including those who would honor terrorists who would further their cause. Terry Milewski is an award winning journalist who has covered this story for over a decade. In these episodes we discuss his book Blood for Blood.

Several new South Asian nation-states were born as the British Raj ended in 1947. The Panjab of the Indus Valley civilization (3300-1300 BCE) and the Sikh Rulers (1710-1849) was annexed by the British in 1849 and partitioned by their Radcliffe line in 1947. Akalis have been representing the Sikh political consciousness since 1920. After 75 years of the Partition: Why are the significant sections of Panjabis and the Sikhs feeling estranged? What are the historical, cultural, geopolitical, trade, and economic contexts and realities? How can those mentioned above be addressed, given the current trends? ~~~ Presenters Harinder Singh - https://sikhri.org/people/harinder-singh Amandeep Singh Sandhu - https://sikhri.org/people/amandeep-sandhu Tridivesh Singh Maini - https://sikhri.org/people/tridivesh-singh-maini Listen to all podcasts at: https://sikhri.org/podcasts ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ABOUT OUR CHANNEL

Writer, educator, and activist Dr. Simran Jeet Singh is the executive director for the Aspen Institute's Religion and Society Program and author of The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life. In his work and contemplative talks, he offers a fresh approach to ethical living—one in which love, caring, and service go hand-in-hand with personal happiness. He shares the skills and insights that kept him engaged in his commitment to activism, and how to use compassion as the antidote to anger, self-pity, or social justice burnout. Growing up in Texas as the son of Indian immigrants and a self-described “turban-wearing, brown-skinned, beard-loving Sikh,” Simran Jeet Singh constantly confronted racism, bullying, and ethnic slurs. But, where others may have grown bitter or angry, he looked to the lessons of Sikh teachings he grew up with to seek out the good in every situation and find positive ways to direct his energy. These tenets of love and service to others empowered him to forge a life of connection and a commitment to justice that catapulted him to the national stage in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

In this episode Host Arjun Singh joined by Herman Singh and Manvir Singh dive into the history of Punjabs' Partitions, Explains what the ' Punjabi Suba Movement' was, and touch on the idea of identifying as 'Punjabi'Clarifications:- There were two main divisions of Punjab—in 1947 and then in 1966, which solidified the current boundaries. However, parts of Himachal Pradesh were removed from the state of Punjab as early as 1957. In 1966, the rest of what is now Himachal Pradesh, as well as the entirety of Haryana, were separated from Punjab. - Punjab is one of the only, not the only, states in India that is majority non-Hindu. It is the only Sikh majority state. However, the states of Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram in the far east are majority Christian. In addition, though classified as Union Territories rather than States, the islands of Lakshadweep in the south and Jammu and Kashmir in the north are majority Muslim. Ladakh in the north is mostly Buddhist and Muslim.

Cultural, religious and familial tensions as well as childhood trauma stunted Noor's identity for awhile, but through twists and turns, she eventually evolved from inward thinking and meek to out and loud! In this conversation, Noor and I explore what it was like growing up in India in a multi-generational household; discuss the impact Sikhism and the anti-Sikh riots of the 1980's had on her and her family; and share mutual stories and perspectives about our very tough experiences with sexual abuse as children. Then, we explore the culture shock Noor experienced coming to the U.S. for the first time for her under-grad, as well as the unique experiences she had while attending Oxford University for her M.B.A.; talk about her passion for positively impacting Delhi's urban slums and the $0.5 million incubation she co-founded to help improve transportation infrastructure; and dive into her journey to realizing her Gay identity in her 30s and how her long battle with body disassociation prolonged this discovery. And throughout, we explore what it's like living as an empath and the significant toll that can have on some; the value of shaping your own identity to fit your true self; and how we could all benefit from finding more happiness in the simple things—just like our fur babies.

On August 15, 1947, British Viceroy Lord Louis Mountbatten formally announced India's independence from British colonial rule. The Indian subcontinent was partitioned into two countries – India and Pakistan. The borders were drawn hastily along religious lines. Muslim-majority provinces became part of Pakistan, Hindu and Sikh majority areas remained in India. The borders cut through villages, rivers and homes, leading to one of the largest migrations in history. Unexpected and unprecedented violence followed, claiming more than a million lives. Fifteen million people left the land they had called home for generations - never to return. In this episode of Beyond the Headlines, we hear the stories of those who lived through the trauma of seeing their land cleft asunder.

This podcast is a rollercoaster of emotions, so brace yourself! But most of all, this podcast highlights the strength of a Sikh and how keeping faith in Guru Sahib can help you overcome any obstacle. The power of Gurbani is truly unmatched! Don't forget to share this podcast with your friends and family!

Ten years ago this week, a white supremacist gunman entered the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin, in Oak Creek, and shot ten people. Six people were killed on August 5, 2012, and they were part of Wisconsin's Indian immigrant community. This was no random act of violence. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, targeted acts of violence directed at Sikhs increased significantly. Still, the FBI did not begin to collect data on anti-Sikh hate crimes until 2015. That decade of heightened hostility went largely unmarked by federal data and ended in a massacre. Dr. Catherine Ceniza Choy says that this pattern of violence and erasure is critical to understanding the histories and experiences of Asian Americans. But there is also a third element to this pattern — resistance. Dr. Choy is a professor of Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies, and Comparative Ethnic Studies at the University of California Berkeley. We speak with her about her new book, Asian American Histories of the United States, which upends cultural narratives about Asian Americans, highlights overlooked identities, and catalogs stories of resistance in these communities across the decades.
We often don't trust our own guidance or inspiration. Yet this is what is imperative as we continue the process of change, growth, and ascension into higher beings. The shift can be a bit scary and with unexpected twists and turns in our lives. Virpal Kaur is a dear friend and remarkable healer and keeper of wisdom. As a traditional Reiki Master from the Usui lineage, with an ancestral background of being a life-long seeker of truth (Sikh), Virpal Kaur is a guide and facilitator for those on their healing journey back home to themselves. Her passion is to uplift members of her human family to live authentically, in personal sovereignty and in alignment with their highest truth. She is particularly devoted to supporting women in connecting with their Divine Feminine, supporting other healers on the front lines aiding the collective, as well as raising the voices of people of color and indigenous communities.On this episode, Virpal and I have a very esoteric and extraordinary conversation where Virpal offers deep insight and wisdom into what it means to be ascending to the 5d, unity consciousness, what light language and codes are, and how to look to your body and psychic senses to guide you toward healing and your highest path.Virpal supports her community through 1:1 Reiki sessions, Wild Wombyn Circles, Reiki Circles and Reiki Gong Bath Activations. She is currently reconnecting with her harmonium and ancestral roots of Kirtan, volunteering in plant medicine ceremonies and in building community.Virpal's mission is to remind all of her relations of our connection to each other, to our beloved Mother Earth and all of her beings, and to never forget this.Connect with Virpal here:RisingLotusReiki.comIG: @Rising.Rotus.ReikiFB: @RisingLotusReikiSF

Running is often the best part of Simran Jeet Singh's day, the time when he feels most free. It's when his best creative thinking happens in terms of his writing, resulting in his new book, The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life. In it, he explains how the Sikh teachings that he was raised with can contribute to a happier life. He's drawn on them to counter the racism that he's encountered as a turban-wearing, dark-skinned, first generation American, but they can help everyone move toward positive change.
