I was wondering if you know anything about Chandi Di Var. I didn't want to look online as I don't know if it is the right source for this. If you know anything, please share e.g. what time should you do this bani, English translation, what is the purpose of this as I only just found out about it.

I know that evil entities exist and there are different levels, as are normal Humans and Saints. Is it true that the highest level evil entity called Maantrik can overpower a lower level of spirituality saint?

I'm not scared or obsessed with these things and it won't kill me if I don't get the answer but I'm just curious and like talking about things normal people don't talk about. I just like learning new things.

It's about that some say you should not read this at night and before reciting, have a bath again even if you've had one in the day. Is this all ritual cr*p or is this for real? I've also heard normal people can't do this as it is very hard to recite and the one that does this with full devotion, escapes the 8.4 million charasi lakh joon.

Can you give me the English translations if you know it please?

Thanks

Answer from Shanti Kaur Khalsa:

As far as translations of Chandi di Vaar Sahib go - the one I like best is in the Dasam Granth translated by Surinder Singh Kohli. This one has a reverent slant. The other good one is by Dr. Jodh Singh. This one is more technically correct.

The customs and practices around the recitation of the Chandi di Vaar that you reference are based on the maryada of the Nihangs - certainly Budda Dal and Tarana Dal, and I think are universally accepted. That is: Bath before reciting, light a jot of ghee, sit on the floor on a clean sheet, start with Japji Sahib (specifically for this recitation, in addition to your morning bani), and don't recite at night (or if you do, recite all night).

Now, whether you accept the maryada or not is always up to you. In my opinion - the maryada means that you should respect the bani, understand that Guru Gobind Singh's bani builds Raudra Ras (martial spirit) in you and you should respect that as well, and understand that Guru's bani is highly cleansing of your subconscious mind and so if you read it before sleeping you will probably have nightmares. The ritual of the maryada is only to guide you in how to respect and manage the technology of the bani (but, of course, it is still ritual and whether you accept the maryada is up to you). No matter what you decide to do, just keep the posture of respect that this bani deserves.

Some say Chandi di Vaar will make you insane. Nope, not true. Some say Chandi di Vaar can be used against people like a black magic spell. Nope, not true. Some people say Chandi di Vaar was not written by the 10th Master. Nope, not true... it was written by Guru Gobind Singhji when he was 20 years old in Paonta Sahib. Although it is true, that the story of Chandi is a hindu mythological story from the Puraana called the Devi-Mahatmyam. The Chandi di Vaar Sahib is that same story told in the incredible verse of the 10th master.

A good source of information is in "Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Question and Answers" by GS Mann and Kamalroop Singh. They give good answers to questions about why Guru Sahib wrote this bani (in fact, the Chandi di Vaar is only one of three banis about Chandi). They point out that the Ardas (Pritam Bhagauti Simran Keh ...) is the mangla charn of the Chandi di Vaar, and the shabd "Deh Ha Shiva" comes from the Chandi Charitra Ukti Bilas. The Chandi bani may seem exotic, but it is closer to home than you may think.

I hope this helps. If you want to read it - you should. It is hard to read in Gurmukhi - and not that easy to read in English either. Just get your intention straight as to why you want to. If your intention has something to do with ... (more)

I would not risk reading this bani at night as the old gora saying better safe than sorry and if there are more than 1 person saying not to recite at night then obviously something is wrong with doing it at night and these people who tell us this are true gursikh and we should listen to them jus read in the day and make sure u don't do it for anything stupid jus do it for curiosity and interest

I agree with the Sakhi above the we should read Chandi di vaar in the day time or if we do it at night.We should continue it all night.I listened this Sakhi in katha one day.

Gurfateh Gavinpal Singh Ji! You make an excellent point. Dissecting, translating, analyzing bani uses a whole different part of your brain than does reading aloud, listening and hearing the bani itself. The first uses your cognitive, intellectual brain, while the latter directly rewires your brain.

the way you resite the bani at night is as a khand path of it constant untill sun down to rise with a jhot of ghee you can do this with one or two poeple swpaing untill sun rise this is the way the panj piare and guru gobind sinhh ji instructed us. also chandi di vaar has TO BE SUNG FROM THE HEART OTHERWISE IT WONT HAVE EFFECT FOR ITS PURPOSE and the purpose being riding you of all carnations that may come and it destroyes your karma.

a passage from the book se keneyia written by the great sant baba harnam singh ji rumpur khere vale

see chapter 12 on Chandi Di Vaar

12 CORRECT TIME FOR THE PRAYER CALLED CHANDI DI VAAR Baba Ji used to recite the prayer called Chandi di Vaar daily, as part of his Nitnem. This is a prayer composed by the tenth Guru, describing a battle between demons and the Goddess called Chandi. It is usually recited by Sikhs during war. Many a time, a question would arise in his mind as to, how many times and at what time one should recite the prayer of Chandi di Vaar? Baba Ji asked many Saints and sadhus regarding this question, but could not get a satisfactory answer. One evening, at his room in the fields, after reciting the evening prayer of Rehras, Baba Ji went on to recite the prayer of Chandi di Vaar. After completing this prayer, he prepared to retire by saying his last prayer of Sohila. It was a moonlit night and the doors of the room in which he was sitting, were open. As he had just lain down, he noticed two men approaching at a short distance. Baba Ji thought to himself, that if these pedestrians were just travellers, he would offer them food and shelter for the night and if they were robbers, then he would challenge them in combat. No sooner had this thought entered his mind, than miraculously one of the Singh’s came beside him and grabbed his feet. The other one seized Baba Ji’s head and pinned him down onto the bed. Baba Ji used to tell us, ‘‘I was unable to move from the bed. A thought entered my mind that these two, who have moved faster than the speed of light in order to grasp me are neither robbers nor travellers. These two must be Shaheed Singhs (the immortal souls of Sikh martyrs). I began to recite the Mool mantar. I had only uttered the Mool mantar twice when the Singh who held my head down, let go, followed by the second Singh who was holding my feet.” Baba Ji got up and the Shaheed Singh explained, ‘‘We did not come here to fight with or seize you, but to answer your question, regarding the correct time to recite the prayer of Chandi di Vaar. As you thought about offering us a fight, we came and immediately seized you, as ... (more)

This all ritual cr*p it is not for real. Dasam granth is not even written by Guru Gobind Singh.Guru Gobind Singh said sab sikhon ko hokum hai guru maniyeo granth.Check out a site called khalsanews.org.You will know who were the three writersof the dasam granth.


edited message

for your information akali nihang guru gobind singh ji wrote three granths. the first, Adhi sri satgueu granth sahib ji the granth that we comanlly call today guru granth sahib ji, this is because guruji compiled and finished of the granth with his eal. Dasam guru granth sahib ji is the secound granth of the sikhs its is our guru and all of its writings were writen by the tenth guru. dasam granth was not compiled by bahi mani singh as thought by many missionary scholars nore was the dasam granth written by hindus as the ideology within the granth is that wich as far from hindu thought and questions as guru granth sahib ji does the lagitumesy of the old school s of thought like cast devus and devas. the repeated use and theme of feminism relates to the mother side of god. but not the devi durga as many inexperienced scholars like to think.
the third and last granth is sri sarbloh guru granth sahib ji a granth full of complete knowledge beyound the thinking and thought again of any hindus of any time period in induia infact, the philossaphy woithin all three granths is unique to searching the experiance of god rather then the old ritualistic shamanism of the past.

a quote to support my evidence, this line is from the dohra you have referred to. Agaya Pai Akaal Ki Tabhi Chalayo Panth Sabb Sikhon Ko hukam hai Guru Maneyo Granth. the way this dohra has been constructed means that the ussage of the word granth at the end is not reffering to one granth but in acyual fact more then one. as in english there isnt a dual word for more then one sheep the same in punjabi Granth reffers to more then one.

Dohra: Aad Guru te Dasam Loh Granth Panth Ki Tek. Gehe Puran Thiya Granth Yeh Daya Sarb Har Ek” this line has been cut from thedohra above, it refers to all three granths it doesnt take a punjabi scholar to figure out the translation for that.

your words were not thought out and were melisious in nature think about what your type in the past and if it is truley worth the hassel. WAHEGURUJI KA KHALSA WAHEGURUJI KI FATEH
