  1. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa , Waheguru ji ki Fateh , firstly what you are doing is throwing out sikh culture and gurmat for some supposed 'modern' and WISER ???? way , in some mistaken impression you know what Guru ji meant better than he did. If you are happy and grateful for being a sikh on the long line of sacrificing sikhs upon whose bodies you stand then it should not be US the descendents, telling the GURU that 'we know better than you' and altering his given ways to bless you both as a Couple. If you look at the history of the Lavaan it has ZERO to do with Vedic resams as we ar

  2. You're marrying the love of your life (supposedly), and you're more worried about whether if you're walking behind, beside or in front of him. Rather than booking the nearest wedding date available in great anticipation, to get married to person you love, you're delaying the process because of your insecurities. I suggest you go back to basics and ask yourself, what does this person mean to you? why are you marrying him? and why Anand Karaj? and what is your priority in this relationship? Its not too late to reconsider, modern Sikh marriages suggest that marriage isn't for everyone.

  3. We are Sikhs not Cultural Marxists. If you have it the traditional you are both equally distant from Maharaj. If you have both people level then one is going to be further away. You adapt to Sikhi, Sikhi should not have to adapt to your whimsical ways. If you want a western ceremony, I suggest you have a registry marriage. Simples

  4. I really am making a conscious effort to adjust my frame of mind so that I'm not viewing reality from a purely masculine and patriarchal perspective, but reading 5hit like this hammers home the absolute futility of it all. We know what she's going to come back with: "Sikhi is outdated / sexist / patriarchal / anti-female" and we're all pendu b**tards who wants to ruin her special day.

  5. Phone up the various Sikh charity organizations. Tell them you're a Muslim who's being disturbed by his Sikh neighbours who won't stop blasting kirtan. If they seem hesitant to help, say the magic L word. Tell them you need some LANGAR. There'll be trucks, TV cameras, and all sorts outside your B&B as quick as a flash.

  7. There is no discriminatory practice here, as in Gurbani we as an individual are represented as a bride. A lot of today's society is seeing discrimination in places where there isn't. Please try and adhere to the traditional way of Anand Karaj. No one calls discrimination when the bride comes after the groom in christian marriages - it is a metaphor as well In the past, one had to take Amrit to even have an Anand Karaj - http://dailysikhupdates.com/gursikhs-anand-karaj-1900-says-elderly-grandmother/

  8. So there are individuals willing to conduct such a ceremony, but you don't want to pay their rates? Do you not feel the actual religious or spiritual method by which you are enjoined to your partner is worth the financial outlay? So, the problem isn't "Sikh society" but your frugality, because if the issue truly lay with these backwards Sikhs, you'd be unable to find even one individual willing to conduct whatever abominable concoction of religiosity you deem to be en vogue in the current year. As for the rights and wrongs of the ceremony itself I guess it's a matter of tradition. If the

  14. @RedopticsIt'd be interesting for you to contact groups like emergency Sikh help line and Khalsa Aid etc and see what their response time is like, what their response is, and how ultimately actually helpful it is, and whether it includes the Daswand donated by the Sangat or if it is just informational. You already know the temp of pub mates, why not check the temperature of the broader Sangat and local Sangat while relying just on yourself and Vaheguru Akal Purakh ultimately? It may benefit all of us.

  22. The stigma of Cannabis comes from the hippie era during the 60's and 70's. It gave a very liberal, careless thinking about cannabis. But if you look at other cultures such as ours, we were more conservative when it came to cannabis. We consumed it in a liquid form-just like the majority of Asian countries. We used it for wounds and cuts during battles, for chronic pain, joint pain and even digestion (the CBD found in cannabis helped with this). However, the THC content is what one should be weary of since it can alter the mind. When it's necessary, moderation is the key. It recentl

  23. I agree to a certain extent. Learning the classical methods is an art that requires time, specialist instruction, etc. The desire to do so should stem from a love for the medium as well as the "source" being venerated by the music itself. Do you really see any of these qualities in the average Punjabi Sikh?

  27. That's what I mean. Even if the payment has gone through it can be reversed. You get the money back from the bank. Call them and explain what's happened. Probably get some reference from someone official if you can. Honestly, it shouldn't be a problem. You get your money back, you can stop stressing, and move forward to doing what you need to do next.

  28. Depending where you are go to your local Gurdwara. Or make a plan to visit a few. Some are open and you will find somewhere to stay in an emergency. Some are strict and closed during covid but others are open so you might have to try a few. Dw Guruji will show you the way. Dont worry about being homeless, I've been there and whilst it's tough and really when you hit rock bottom it's quite an experience and shape us . It's a sad reality tho that sometimes we hav to go through it. Its humbling and sometimes we have to bite ego and take help from family or people we havent been in tou

  32. Basically I put down deposit and rent for house, I went to the property, there was a weird Russian guy living there, I tried making chit chat, said he didn't the room to make friends. Then there was a knock on the door and some guy turned up saying I was no longer welcome. I got in touch with emergency services and have been in a b & b, now my money is tied in with other place and I have nowhere to go and no money left. Its straight from a movie, I didn't think stuff like this happens.

Has ruined many of the roads in London making it difficult for ordinary people to use cars etc under the excuse of 'being greener' Seems to be quite unliked other than by the 'liberal elites' Wants to lead the agenda to change street names in London in name of 'diversity', and remove historical statues Anyone have any theories about him?

  40. Wrote this just a few days ago.covering this topic: Sadly this had been misrepresentated a lot in our Panth for the last few years mainly by missionaries to the point where many Sikhs have also started believing this. Firstly, it is not buckets milk but buckets of Kachi Lassi. Kachi Lassi in this case is a small portion of milk(about 20%) mixed with 80% water. The reason this is used since ancient times in India is because it does not damage marble flooring. In fact it gives a soft feel to the marble after applying it. The alternative to this is modern chemical based products w

When the news got around that guru gobind singh ji was going to start this new initiation (Amrit) the pandit came up with a plan to try and kill baba ajit Singh ji as they thought baba ji would be the next guru. They came up to guru ji and insisted that he would do havan to Candi goddess as in Hindu ithihas whenever something very big was about to happen they would preform havan just like we do ardas.
