  1. I was 9 when my immediate family member passed away. That’s how the spiritual urge started. Might share more another time.. anyway a few points; - when do happy people remember god? People only remember god in pain - religion is a game, spirituality is something completely different. If your third eye opens you’re in for a big shock. Many religious folk who are famous/respected wear bana are on complete zero within. - 1st stage of bhram gyan is called sub icha (genuine desire of enlightenment arises). Pain is the only thing which finally pushes a person hard enough towards searc

  3. Disagree. He wouldn't be a lawyer or barrister without having intelligence, you are having a laugh! The image to me, at first glance does look like it could be a Sikh. I think the personal attack in the third paragraph is completely unnecessary and has nothing to do with the article.

  4. I am not sure if this has already been posted before, however I found this interesting article which has a interesting and pointed rendition of Sikh history. It has condensed and very much simplified history for brevity, nonetheless calls a spade a spade in many cases. It is written in the context of the incident with KS Brar in 2012. I thought I would share as I it refreshing to read something from the point of view of a non-Sikh that does not whitewash or perform apologetics for the hypocrisy and corruption of the times. It doesn't sugar coat things as I've seen in many other case

  6. Life is all about free will (choice). In Choosing one has an infinite experiences to pick, like billions of people no two people mind choose all same things. One chooses Atheism one experience it. Atheism (separation) is going in an opposite direction of the ultimate truth Unity conscious (Oneness). Sikhism starts with the Ultimate truth Oneness "EK Onkar'. Most atheist Near death experiences upon crossing over (death) experiences it as hell of like minded souls full of anger, hatred and every possible selfish act imaginable as the person own conscious holds, its the hell of their own creation

  7. This type of atheism being popularised comes from the 'top' - often highly celebrated arts figures from literature and performing arts declare themselves atheists. In the West, it's become accepted to mock the Church (and other religions, but more cautiously) and anything associated with religion or God as 'boring'. However, I have not noticed it 'getting more aggressive'. I do think the majority of people even if not religious or atheist themselves often do respect Religion. Maybe that's to do with e.g. the Sikh 'military' history, what Jews went through, the association of H

  9. Article author has no such knowledge and shows that they are out of touch. They are trying to be the smart ass showing that sangat who took badla are stupid in the conclusion of the article. Author deliberately didn’t mention that the Beadbhi culprits don't know the difference between the various granths in the bus when they came to do the beadbi? Guy probably thinking that he got SGGS ji. If even they were a chance of 30 mins to tell the difference between all granths, they will still not get it. Their motive is do beadbi of anything that Sikhs give the highest respect.

  11. Generally speaking (I'm not making this about your particular experience), if her last rites were performed according to Sikh maryada, then she wouldn't "be" with anyone, much less in a specific country with another person. That's what happens to so-called ghosts or spirits who haven't been able to pass over; they cling to people they loved or with whom they had an affinity when alive. Sikhi states, from the various things I've read over the years, that the worst thing that can possibly happen for the deceased is for their essence to remain tied to a living person or people. This would su

She will always be a part of you and that can never change. I know easier said then done, try to see we will all leave one day. My days could be numbered. Make most of each day, imagine its you last day, can you look back and say you'd have no regrets? How would your wife want you to live. She would want to see you happy and live your life to the fullest. Grief never ends. Where there is deep grief, t

  17. Waheguru. Praying for your healing and strength. The older i get, the more you realize how everything really is just a fickle and precious time is. Its all just false. Esp when coming into Sikhi lately, and reflect on my past, future and this world, leaves me with this un-describable , emptiness. Sometimes i feel like numb and nothing fazes me, and life is just flying by, other times i think i must try to do much naam, read Gurbani, then i get back to am i good enough, mistakes i made, will Guru Ji forgive me, Jamandoots, scares me..this internal never-ending battle.

  18. I have lost people in my life close to me. The feeling you have is emptiness. The person filled a gap in your life which is missing. In the modern world, we think of death of being separate from life, but it is in fact part of life. As you get older and you attend more funerals this is something you begin to accept. What death has taught me is that it is "finite" in this particular life that I am currently in now and I should be living it and live it better. If I live this life better and more fulfilled then I will either merge with the Akaal or live the next life at

  19. It might be interpreted as a piece designed to get the adrenaline pumping; to manipulate those of us who are easily excitable into leaping head-first into battles as a way of apparently honouring our ancestors' sacrifice; to refresh the memory of those of us who've forgotten about the ancient enemy that descended from the sands of Arabia. If I was a suspicious guy I'd think this was an article that wanted to achieve all those things. That's almost as damaging as the vindictive, hateful narrative of the Indian media.

  21. It panders to us; I read a lot of flattery in the above article. It also overlooks the affection with which the very early founding Sikhs had for the Sufi strand of Islam that was incorporated into the Sikh belief system. As a brief primer it's okay I suppose but its not the total picture. I guess it focuses on the martial aspect but does seem to neglect the deeper, philosophical side of things. I guess trying to introduce what are quite conflicting ideas into one simple article would be a bit much.

Let's say a bunch of us (5) bump into each other on the street and start talking to each other in english and telling a few jokes, how would the indigenous react? If we start having our own joints like restaurants etc. and they are highly frequented by us 'refugees'. How would the indigenous feel about it? Would they feel excluded and resentful or jealous?

  25. In the whole of India, our quam's propensity for violence is probably the greatest. Where other groups look to take to looting and killing, our quam seems to be restrained. It seems that in comparison to other groups we have the greatest tolerance threshold. However, I think that this patience and tolerance will eventually wane and the quam may snap. Once the snap happens, the carnage will be immense. Where other groups try to justify their atrocities, our quam will feel great guilt upon we did even though it was after great provacation. It is because we judge

  26. If you're of the mind that you're NOT going back and you're definitely going to make things work, i.e. absolute stubborness in a somewhat positive way, you'll have no choice but to stick it out. But how many people are capable of this one-track determination, especially when having to deal with married partners who don't share that same mentality, or when you're trying to placate pampered children who've known nothing but first-world luxury? It's an uphill struggle. That's when you start to separate the bundeh from the bachche, and you realise the extent to which someone's religious belief is

  28. I don't think the majority of british raised people have the physical strength and mentality to do graft like kheti myself? But who knows? Plus, we have all the tractors/combine harvesters etc. I think it takes a certain type of personality type to graft it out, outdoors. Plus I wonder how we'd handle the heat in summer? From the sounds of it, many young desi juts seem to be resistant to grafting the farms themselves. I wonder how outsiders would handle being in rice paddies, or raw soil most of the day? BUT....what we might get is less resistance to modern techniques of farming?

  29. A best case scenario is that we rejuvenate the place. But I know pinds, they are seriously averse to any change. So I guess most of us will gravitate towards towns. Having worked with many desis over the years, I think that us refugees would have serious problems with finding employment, and that resentment desis have towards vlathees, will be at play for most of us. We'll be the targets for all the 'one upmanship' crap. I think the cultural differences will make us frustrated. That being said, we may cause cultural change to accommodate our tastes and have various cafes and res

  30. I don't know if this is Panjabi folk culture, or a clever way to stop people dwelling too much on the deceased, but I clearly remember being told (when young) not to remember people who have passed on too much, because it keeps them tied to this plane. Make of it what you will.

  32. Not big fan of SFJ but these indian news folks are funny. They have no unique idea but daily miserably trying to copy/paste ideas of the west is doing. Adding tweets is the new thing for them. Looking at these low grade opinion/column based website, look at their “self created” 3rd class low grade tweets. One thing they forget is that news folk usually post majority of tweets of the famous known personalities. What Indians are doing is posting tweets of sanghi or Arya samaji riding on donkeys as day job.

And we will not be able to have khanda as we will have to replace it with a hammer and sickle. The Jathas will have to CCP sanctioned as well as the Rehits. We will be required to slurp our noodles when eating with chopsticks. If these are followed, then off to the gulag you go!

But during the last one I asked her where she was and she said she was 'in India with her mother'. This made perfect sense to me.

  39. You've got a wise head on your shoulders. You'll be fine. There's no need for it all to end in acrimony and recriminations. I do think your parents are incapable of seeing any of the positives as you've described. I also believe they were relishing the opportunity of imposing their domineering selves on any potential daughters-in-law, but since you seem determined to flee the nest you'll rob them of this particular delight, too, lol. That would've caused you major problems in the future, btw. It's not often I suggest Sikh sons leave the family home and their parents, but in your cas

  40. Sorry for your loss my friend. You’re still at a decent age to get remarried and have children. It’s only going to feel lonelier as the years roll on. Having children keeps people on track, motivated to keep working, and keeps one busy. You’ll feel a purpose to keep going in the face of inner demons dragging you down. Just some advice. You know yourself better than anyone, so make your decisions for yourself brother. If you still need time for healing for moving forward, I think that’s fine. But reality is going to remain the same, the sooner you catch up, the better for you.
