  2. Is it a spiritual aid, though, or a hallucinogenic aid that induces a false religious exaltation? It's not a secret that non-Sikh westerners have used various substances to induce rapturous experiences that they claim are glimpses of the Divine. My point: is it the Sikhi that causes the experience or the drugs?

Dr. Marian Fry, in a survey of California clinicians who provide cannabis approvals, reported that cannabis-using parents saw an “enhanced flexibility and an ability to identify the child’s needs as those of a separate and unique individual. . . . Patients say cannabis makes them less self-centered and egocentric…” . Dr. Fry’s comments are echoed in a recent

Science may not yet have begun to study this one, but the ability of cannabis to promote forgiveness is a regular topic at on-line cannabis related discussion forums.Human health and wellness are not mechanical matters.

  9. How old are you ? I used to think the same until my last two visits to India. If anything, keeping up appearances is much more important in India than the West. You will always be an outsider. But you can make it work if you really want to, probably What would be your livelihood? As you will be aware, farmers have it very difficult in India.

  11. A little random, but I'll post it anyway People in older days seemed to be fitter and healthier ; I mean, they generally walked more, and ate less rubbish. They were forced to be more physically healthy by way of life. They likely had better mental health, as they would not have been using technology like phone/PC/TV/audio/whatsapp to fill their minds with rubbish like most of us do, and which has driven materialism to extreme levels They would have had better diet with fresher food, less ready-made foods and less junk snacks and drinks. They would have eaten food in peace with

  12. My cynicism and intimate knowledge of the Punjabi demeanour doesn't allow me to embrace this particular issue with as much positivity as others. I've seen where this type of narcotically-encouraged religiosity leads, and it's actually not as noble or as high-minded as it's being described here. Each to their own. If it works for someone, then fair enough.

  13. Like if somebody takes to rock climbing for health for example. And they start doing that, and they find as they begin that the Sukha helps them focus and enjoy climbing rocks a lot and relax and steal their mind back from maya and other poisons. And they keep climbing the rock, they're going to get fit. Another person may never have been without rock climbing, or lead a different life and maybe they never liked Sukha while climbing. And they too are phenominally fit. And if you go rock climbing anywhere there is going to be those that use Sukha and those that don't and they all clim

  14. I see Sukha doing the exact opposite. Offering a lifeline to addicts getting out of addiction. You can take it or leave it. If you don't like just don't use it. The science is undeniable and more importantly it's place within Gursikhi is undeniable. The reefer madness comes from the war on drugs, both of them, and the destructive nature of wasp imperialism. If those people within and related to the Paanth, if choosing to use anything, had chosen Sukha instead of alcohol, tobacco, opium, and every other drug known to man all these years, the greater Sikh family would hav

  22. Was watching some of his videos, skimmed through this one. Missionary Sikhs always deny judgment after death, reincarnation, heaven and hell. This guy also denies judgment after death, reincarnation, hell etc missionary Sikhs often call all of this a "metaphor" They scrap everything, divine interventions, divinity, after life etc They just get rid of everything. Do these people genuinely believe what they preach? Or are there people using them to alter Sikhi ? A lot of them seem to spend many years abroad in the west. Its like they view Sikhi from a very Western, atheist pe

  26. lol Everyone knows who these khusray are and what they do. The issue is their version of Sikhi and how they represent it. They took a survey and 75% of their members support interfaith marriage, therefore City Sikhs reached the conclusion that interfaith anand karaj should be allowed. Why am I not surprised that an overwhelming number of their members support interfaith anand karaj ? https://www.citysikhs.com/2015/08/anand-karaj-sikh-wedding-ceremony-statement-from-city-sikhs/ They also advertise Sikh LGBT events on their website.

  28. In our community when the kids mess up we always focus on the messed up kids but don't look at why the kids have messed up. We haven't reached the point as a community where we link bad parenting to rebellious kids. I don't think we actually have reached the point where we think parents can be faulty at all. Even if we blame the parents its often "oh they must have spoiled their kids" Recognising bad parenting does not exist in our community.

  29. Alcohol. But she told me she did heroin when she was younger. She stopped heroin and then started drinking. Few times she rang us she was completely under the influence of alcohol, muddled up sentence, slurred words. I think since then she's possibly taking other stuff. I emailed Sikh helpline a few years back. But I doubt she spoke to them. She used to say that her mum sometimes used to buy alcohol and put it in front of her on purpose.

  30. You can go off grid wherever you are,no need to migrate anywhere.Premi5 is right,you will be an outsider in India. This requirement would be tough to find anywhere,unless you go settle in some really spiritual Babas Dera or something and dedicate yourself to Bhagti.But then there is the serious risk too of you ending up with the wrong Baba for eg Gurmeet ram raheem,and end up being turned into a eunuch.So tread carefully.

It's happening with my one of my cousin sisters atm she spends months living around her friends house to avoid her mother. But now she's going get a flat for herself. In fact she's even considering moving across the Atlantic to avoid her mother. Her mother says things like that she never wanted her and that she wanted a son instead, and that she was a mistake etc her mother says things like that she hopes her daughter never settles and ends up in a bad marriage.

This female Apu was ringing us a while back on our landline telling us our internet is slow and that she can fix it if we log into our laptop. She even got the provider wrong. My sister exchanged a rude conversation with her and she never rang us back again We used to get calls from years ago aswell.

  41. The Bhangis were Dhillon Sardars from the Amritsar region. The Bhangi misal was the most powerful and wealthiest Misal reaching its peak under Sardar Hari Singh Dhillon who ruled over most of central Punjab including the capital Lahore. Their downfall was the alcohol and bhang addictions which resulted in early deaths among the leaders after Hari Singh, which gave Maharaja Ranjit Singh a opportunity to take over Lahore and other Bhangi territory. Had they been more "focused" perhaps they would of not lost their territory to the Sukerchakias. A really fascinating period and misal in

  42. Bhangis issued coins as well the famous ZamZama gun was captured by the Bhangis during battle with the Afghans and the gun came to be knows as the Bhangiyan da Taup. The gun was captured by Ranjit Singh after he defeated the Bhangis and i think it was later captured by the British after they defeated the Sikhs and is currently in Lahore. Bhangis also built a fort outside Amritsar and was known as Bhangiyan da Qila. After Ranjit captured Amritsar from the Bhangis he further fortified the fort and named it Qila Gobindgarh.

  43. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh, I'm interested in learning about the origins of the Khanda, which is today the symbol of the Sikh Panth. There is no mention of it in any puraatan accounts, nor any representation of it in Sikh art before the mid-20th century. Nor was it depicted on the Nishaan Sahib - the only symbols carried on the flag of the Sikh Nation were three shastar - a dhal (shield), a katar (punch dagger) and a tulwar sword. This is evident from old Sikh paintings, as well as the gold engravings at Sri Darbar Sahib dating back to the time of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Who

  44. The earliest image I have seen of it was in a congratulatory letter from some British army official to some apna who had evidently been helping them recruit for WW1. If I recall rightly, the image was dated 1915ish. If it did come from around about this period, it probably became firmly established by being used by the Singh Sabha lehar, who dominated the Sikh discourse during the colonial period. They had a very strong presence with periodicals, tracts, books etc. So most literate (and illiterate) people would have been exposed to the symbol in this way. It then doesn't take much for
