  1. These forums are so dead. Most threads barely get any replies, and there are only a few posts each day. What have the mods accomplished by banning one of the most frequent posters?

  2. By all means do so. There are many independent women who would love to marry you coz of ur passport. Moreso Indian parents who wanna settle their daughter abroad could pay down payment for your house. Always look on the bright side of life

  3. Why bother to listen to Sant Ji's speeches when you can just be a mona and get a tattoo of Sant Ji on your arm (to feel good about yourself) and go around drinking and womanizing? And not only that, but have "singhs" on these forums defend your right to do so all the while insulting people like me?

  7. 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. This sounds amazing, but I am not seeing too much yet about curriculum or what and how they are actually going to teach. It's probably too early but would be interesting to see. I think the main deciding factor about big projects like these being effective for our community's growth is the people and leadership behind the project. If the leaders and teachers are deep in sikhi, then naturally the students will be more drawn towards sikhi itself and the values will carry on. Hopefully it is not the case where the admins are in it for the money and status and could care less about the values and

  16. Totally ridiculous thread. My suggestion would be to get married in a church or court marriage. Skip Anand Karaj if not too keen of our pious traditions.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  21. There is a massive difference between the Sikh experience in the UK vs the US. The UK is a much better place to be a Sikh. The biggest difference-maker is population density. According to the 2011 census, there were (at the time) about 432,000 Sikhs in the UK. Accounting for some population growth and uncounted people (such as illegal immigrants), there are probably at least 500,000 Sikhs in the UK today. Now take into consideration that the UK has a population of about 67 million crammed into a relatively small island. And also consider that most of the Sikhs live in certain parts o

Sophistry will ultimately prove to be the undoing of the particular section of whites who lack a warrior spirit and think that philosophising and rationalism will render any opponents into logical defeat. Any minority group who follows this particular group of whites will meet the same sticky end.

  27. This is one of the stupidest posts that I have seen on here. Sikhi is not restricted to one ethnic group. The privilege that you think you are entitled to, just because 150 years ago or whatever someone in your family was amritdhari, is disgusting. At the end of the day, you have a haircut, so whatever you think or say is meaningless. Through your actions you have renounced the Sikh religion. You can identify as whatever you want, but at the the end of the day, you are just another stupid Punjabi jatt (who makes me embarrassed to be jatt)

  28. The paintings from baba atal rai's tower are not that elegant looking and gaudy mainly because most of them were done near the end of the sikh empire and after the collapse, so most of the sikh paintings in that period were done by local artists. While art work done during maharaja ranjit singhs time was done by mainly pahari artists who were trained in the rajput and later mughal courts, and the work was just beautiful. painting at baba atal rai tower the figures in the paintings in baba atal rai jis tower are very short and stocky. painting done during sikh raj at

I think it's one thing to be concerned about a lack of Nihang participation in 1984, or worried about infighting etc, but that level of krodh is something to look at Veer Ji. Could you express your concerns without it reading like homosexual porn? Shukria

  35. If I recall correctly, a few months ago I put up a post on this forum highlighting some of the discrepancies in the Suraj Prakash. A mod took it down because he felt it would offend a majority of the forum. I, however, feel that Sikh Sangat is not emulative of it's much maligned reputation i.e. a forum full of fanatics. In the latter spirit, then, I ask that can someone then explain the following passage from another traditional text- Chibber's Bansavalinamah: 'Kahan Singh Trehan from Goindwal and a descendent of Guruji.

  36. Sakhi from the life of Sant Harnam Singh Ji. It is worth mentioning another incident concerning Dr Kartar Singh that made his faith in Gurbani firmer and gave him deeper insight into the faith. In the inspirational company and guidance of Baba Ji he was now of the firm conviction that “Gurbani is the Guru and Guru is the Bani”, but his father and other members of the family had no such faith. In fact, they were followers of a living Guru1 . They were followers of the Nirankari sect based in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, who’s Guru at the time was Baba Ratta Singh. (The sect is still in existence

  38. WJKK WJKF Well if you really want to know his story you have to read articles, books etc. You must read the stories of both sides. But I can inform your that many articles are creating a negative image of Sant Bhindranwale. This is my opinion. Is he a terrorist? I really don’t think so. Just look to the picture. In 1977 he became the head of Dam Dami Taksal and within 7 years he became India’s most wanted man. Why was he so “wanted”? Because he killed hundreds op people? Because he created hate? Or a exodus among the Hindus in Punjab like many books say? He was a anti-nationalist? The
