Baba Giana Singh - Shastarvidiya - Diwali 2005


Baba Ji is about 98 years old, he reads a Panj Granthi and Das Granthi everyday at amritvela followed by practice of Shastarvidiya, he was a student of Sant Baba Gurbachan Singh Bhinderawale. He has trained 17 Singhs into skilled teachers of Shastarvidiya. May Maharaj allow Baba Ji to keep inspiring us, and the best of health. This photo was taken at Akali Phoola Singh Burj, Diwali, 2005. Baba Ji is an exponant of Jhatka Gatka, or Jang vidiya.

Khalsa ji does he know the full vidiya? I thought that Niddar Singhs ustaad was the last one. I wasn't aware there were others. I went to india and asked a group of nihungs if they could teach me shastar vidiya years back. But they started teaching me Gatka. I was pretty disheartened.

He only knows some basic moves of Shastar Vidiya, Nidar Singh is the only person left alive who teaches the full Vidiya.

niddar says he's the last person left, but the truth is there are alot of singhs that know full shastar vidiya you have just got to look for them, niddar him self doesnt even know the full vidiya

they arent exactly guna start teaching outsiders, who just turn up inside knowledge. You have to stay with them a few years and also learn how to shoot guns, ride horses and use bow and arrows and do santhiya of path and do seva in the langar and clean horses etc

Nidar only learnt a bit of the vidya and made the rest up himself. Included the Hindu-snatan stuff later to make himself seem even more ancient. His claim to 5000 years ago is ridiculous.
