  1. I don't think your question is correct. Becoming close to Waheguru is a long path in general, though there are exceptions to this. Both person 1 and person 2 are on different paths. I do see your point about looks being deceiving though. To the OP, generally I'm just another wannabe Sikh but having a non judgemental stance has helped me greatly. Giani Kulwant Singh jee Ludhiani wale have touched on this characteristic numerous times in their katha.
  2. Bhai Nishaan Singh creates great videos! I've not seen that many, but the ones I have, are exceptional i.e. janam asthaan of Pyarey Mohkam Singh and a recent video of Sahib Ajeet Singh commanded a force of 100 Singhs on the order of Dasmay Paatshah to capture a tyrant Mughul who had been wreaking havoc.
  3. For an Amritdhari Sikh whatever the panj payarey direct him or her to do is mandatory and should be followed as much as possible. Usually panj pyarey direct ablakhees to do 7 daily bania as well as Gurmantar jaap and Mool Mantar jaap.
  4. I think there are quite a few variations of how much bani Sikh's read at bedtime. The very basic consists of the 5 shabads that you will find in SGPC gutkay. Taksali gutkay have then added the rakheya de shabad which have variations as well. The older gutkay sahib have 4 rakheya de shabad and the Sundar Gutka app by Taksal has 5 or 6. Nanaksar have a variation as well and the longest variation I've seen is the Budha daal gutka sahib which has a mini Japji Sahib and Jaap Sahib added to the end. Take your pick. A side note, one of Dasam Guru Sahib Jee's 52 hukam is to read the salok Pavan Guru Pani Pita with keertan sohila.
  5. Sikh Ithihas is full of these types of sakhia. I'm pretty sure that Gurdwara Santokhsar now stands at the place that this event took place. Its tradition that when Sikhs go to Sri Amritsar on a yatra, they'll visit Ramsar, Santoksar, Bibeksar, Kolsar and then Darbar Sahib. If you have time, then I'd suggest listening to the ongoing katha by Bhai Vishal Singh centred on Sikh Ithihas from the Gurus's era. Bhai Sahib narrates sakhia from Gur Partap Suraj Granth on a daily basis I think. They're normally on Sangat TV but available on Youtube as well.
  6. Like @Koi has explained Maharaj sets the boundaries but if need be, they'll tweak them as well. You will find this throughout Gurbani. Off the top of my head, look at Raag Maru sohley. Each shabad should have 16 sections as the name states - sohley. However, there are many instances where shabads have 17 sections. Unfortunately I can't pinpoint the katha that I heard explaining this phenomena, but I'd start to listen to Giani Kulwant Singh as he great at explaining this type of thing.
  7. Internet keyboard warriors trying diminish the character of Sikhs such as Baba Nihal Singh. Before commenting on Baba ji's actions, have a look at your jeevan and reflect on whether you'd ever be able to sacrifice and achieve what Sant ji have in their life. They may have made mistakes but that is in line with what Satguru ji says - Bolon andar sabh ko, abul guru kartar. BTW, i'm not commenting on whether what Baba ji said is correct or not, but just reminding people on here to reflect a little.
  8. sher - lion / tiger. Saunkan - ??. Suniara - goldsmith. Sapp - snake.
  9. I start off with warm water, wash where I need to wash and finish my shower with a cold water 30 second burst. This has worked well for me until I went to India during December/January. That was a different story lol. I recommend watching "Gurmat" ishnaan video published by Gurmat Bibek. I haven't seen this in a while but here's the video:
  10. These images are fascinating! Where did you find them?
  11. Have a watch of these: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=ਬ੍ਰਹਮ+ਗਿਅਨ+ਭਾਗ+53+ਵਿਸ਼ਾਃ-+ਅੰਮਿ੍ਤ+ਛਕਣ+ਤੇ+ਕੁਝ+ਚਿਰ+ਅਾਨੰਦ+ਰਹਿਣ+ਤੋ+ਬ+{+ਗਿਆਨੀ+ਕੁਲਵੰਤ+ਸਿੰਘ+ਜੀ+ਲੁਧਿਆਣੇ+ਵਾਲੇ)
  12. Were you logged into Google? Did you clear your cache and cookies before searching? I think Google's search results can significantly change depending on your online activity that it has been tracking. Maybe try doing the above or using a different search engine such as duckduckgo. This will improve the reliability of your results! Apologies for being a nerd but I thought I get in there first before someone else does

    In my opinion to be successful in anything you need a mix of qualities. Self discipline is a must, self motivation is a must and then the correct methodology is must. In one of the may perspectives in life, I learnt the hard way by wasting a lot of time. However, having said that, material gain in SatGuru's teachings is like collecting sand. There is an abundance of this at his feet. If you want to come on to the path of Sikhi then taking a out an amount of time on a daily basis is a must.
