    To the OP It seems as if you have already made up your mind. IF is this is NOT the case THEN Search youtube for Giani Sher Singh and watch his videos on this subject I don't think any of the answers here will do justice to the response you are looking for. I maybe wrong but that's my opinion.
  2. It's an age-old problem. "Balancing" contentment with drive and ambition / having realistic expectations but then trying to push yourself to do better. Does it seem like the young lady was lacking on the appreciation and contentment side of things which led her to take her own life?

    Thanks sooo much for this bhai sahib! I first saw the unedited version of the above youtube video a couple of weeks ago. I mentioned it to quite a few others who then wanted a link to the video. When I came back to find the thread on here / sikhawareness forum I couldn't find it!!

    Dealing with child's death

    It's devastating just reading your situation. My thoughts are with you and hope the outcome will be positive. The only advice I can offer is to surrender/collapse at SatGuru's charan. Surrender/collapse at a BrahmGiani's charan. Have full faith, the outcome is in their hands.

    Have a listen to this fantastic description of the importance of Nitnaym bania / the pitfalls of missing your Nitnaym.

    Is amritvela necessary

    Here's a mind dump of my thoughts as fast I can get them out as I should be doing something else when I write this post!!! (i.e. work!!) The importance of AmritVela can't be under estimated There wont be any "progression" without it Progression only comes from Guru's grace but Guru jee is looking for your effort That said executive orders/Nadar/glances of grace from Maharaj can waiver all situations but to depend on this should be frowned upon as Maharaj wants effort I heard in a katha once that a person who bows before the Guru, physically or mentally, during Amritvela wont have to bow/seek the help of others The ultimate way to get up at AmritVela is have to a huge amount of Prem for Maharaaj However, sustaining Prem and therefore AmritVela in my experience is very hard and depends on your circumstances - e.g. where you are in your journey, your environment, your habits/lifestyle/the company you have etc the day before AmritVela plays a big part on whether you'll wake up and get up at AmritVela e.g. watching Game of Thrones at 10pm the night before will have an impact!! How hungry are you for it? I would try to avoid the question of is AmritVela a requirement. Try your best to "do" AmritVela in whatever way you can. Don't be lazy but don't beat yourself up about it either as it could hamper motivation. Ultimately Maharaj knows your situation.
  7. Please think through this very carefully. Marriage will change your life. You will be spending the rest of your life with this person so you need to think wisely! The criteria you have shown in your post about your future to be husband (handsomeness) is shallow to be blunt! You post reveals that your to be household has thought this marriage through already as your mother in law has laid down the rules already. Take a dip into the rich heritage that you WILL BE LEAVING BEHIND when you enter your boyfriend's household. There was a time when every Hindu family would raise their first born son as a Sikh. Apologies if this post sounds harsh but the OP has asked for advice. Sometimes I am suspicious of these types of posts debating whether they are genuine! I've made the assumption that this one is.

    Bhai Jagraj Singh has passed away.

    Waheguroo, lost for words. I remember Bhai Sahib at one of the first Sikhi Camps I attended back in the early 2000s. He was soo inspirational. I can't even begin to imagine what his children must be feeling at this moment. May Maharaaj bless him, his family and the BoS team to continue the priceless sewa initiated.
  9. Have a listen to a few interviews of prominent kathaavichaks such as Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh and Bhai Vishal Singh. You'll notice the same qualities of which is the essence of Sikhi - humility, a lot of bhagtee and sangat/bakshish from Sants. Here's one for Giani Vishal Singh
  10. Reminds of sakhi that Giani Kulwant Singh frequently narrates. A pair of Singhs once did matha teyk at Darbar Sahib. After doing so, they went to a Mahapurkh who asked where have you been to which they replied we have just done mata teyk at Darbar Sahib. The Mahapurkh then remarked I hope you haven't left your mathaa there!
  11. Spot on, we have to responsible as others users have pointed out above.
  12. Thanks for the heads up! I'll stay away from that one. I've been a lot of the Alton Tower ones like oblivion etc and was secretly quite concerned about my Dastar at the time but went ok. I think if you wear a kenyan style Dastar then it might be worth using parna/Tha Tha like Singhbj Singh showed above. Quickly tie it on when your waiting for the ride to begin.

    Washing kesh - need help

    Excellent and commendable effort Singh Sahib! I wouldn't advise reading from a Gutka with your hair open even if they are covered. You could do simran whilst the water evaporates from your kes infront of a heater. Then tie them and be ready to start your 5 bania. Or tie your kes wet in a parna whilst you do 5 bania and open after. If you know any of your nitnaym off by heart then you could dry your hair whilst reading off by heart - you'd still need to have your head covered Point is that we should have extra satkar when reciting Gurbani from a tangible source. Think incrementally, if you are already doing your nitnaym without fail then start doing daily kesee isnaan. If not then maybe concentrate on doing your nitnaym without fail before committing to kesee isnaan. Don't be too hard on yourself but dont but lazy either! One step towards SatGuroo and they'll many step towards you.
