  1. Keski cant be hung close by for the same reasons kirpan and kangha cant be hung close by. The principle listed in the rehatnamas is that a Sikh should not be bare-headed with exception of while washing and combing hair. Walking around bare-headed with open hair does not behoove a Sikh. Guru Sahib always kept it on them and so did Sikhs in early days. It was not because of war times but because of Gurmat principles. Bhai Randhir Singh and Bhai Vir Singh also did not part from their turbans. I rather agree with naam abhiyasi Gursikhs than lazy pot belly people who have forgotton their heritage
  2. Yes I agree with you with one caveat that it is the Grace of Vaheguru not self-effort that results in spiritual progress and it is the Grace that brings out the good works and efforts in us. We pray for "uddham" and God's Grace works from beginning to end resulting in our journey, progress, works and salvation. Guru Rakha
  3. It is a common sense that while washing hair, keski cannot be tied on the head. It has to be removed just like a kangha but it does not justify keeping it away from the body. You ask for practical purpose for keski but the same reasoning can be used against kangha which is used to comb hair so what purpose does it serve while doing kes ishnaan? While washing hair, the keski must be kept on the body because as soon as one is done washing hair, he can tie the keski and then take body shower. Kangha is also kept on the body and then tucked into the hair. Keski doesnt just keep hair clean, it keep
  4. You are speaking an ideal case which is not applicable to everyone. In case sangat is not available then I see your point. But if sangat is available then as instructed by Guru Sahib, one should go to sangat. Many Gursikhs have struggled without sangat and many naam abhiyasi Sikhs have found sangat to be the most beneficial for their progress and to keep them from making mistakes. Guru Sahib has spoken highly of sangat which they themselves established. So it cannot be ignored or downplayed. While Guru Sahib is eternal and with us, it is the sangat that strengthens our beliefs and faith in Gur
  5. Keski covers hair/head. It is the symbol of royalty, independence and equality. Hence, it must be worn at all times i.e. sleeping, showering etc. Rehat does not specify when not to wear it because when rehat says that one should wear a keski, it means there are no exceptions. Listing every instance and circumstance becomes mute. The only time when hair could be left uncovered is while washing and combing them. Other than that, keski must be worn on the head. It is not hard at all. You just need to practice rehat and get your mind used to it. While washing hair, keep the keski tied to your wais
  6. It has not been proven conclusively that homosexuality is related to genetics. So far all the studies that have been conducted are hypothesizing and making suggestions. No such gene has been discovered. Also, there are many disorders and diseases related to genetics. Thus, it is wrong to assert that just because something may be or is related to genetics it is thereby morally acceptable. What if in the future scientists discover genes related to smoking, rape, and murder behaviors? Would we have to accept such behaviors as acceptable and accommodate them in the parameters of Gurmat? The clear
  7. Clearly, you have a habit of putting your own words in others mouths and then accusing them which is nothing short of deceit and a lie. I never said Islam and Hinduism have "meaningless morals". Show me a single line that states this. You are looking for a path that works for you. Hence, you want something that fits your viewpoint, thinking and opinions. This is absolutely the wrong way of finding the truth. In Sikhi, one has to submit, hence, mould their thinking and behavior according to Sikh ideals. You want your choice to be moulded to your thinking which cannot happen in Gurmat. Accordi
  8. I do not know her and did not check her accounts but we all need to sit back and reflect upon this in larger context. Any Sikh without proper sangat could fall prey to five vices or materialistic things. But do we have support groups to help such Sikhs? Do we have supportive sangat that could go to that Sikhs house to do Amrit Vela and Aasa Di Vaar to provide spiritual uplift to that Sikh? When Mata Sabhrayee Ji was feeling down and sorrow due to Guru Gobind Singh Jis family suffering and loss of lives, her local sangat decided to visit her house to have Amrit Vela and Kirtan program so that s
  9. You asked questions and many provided answers. If you are thinking of having an argument or a debate then you will have to find someone else for it. Having some similarities does not mean anything. What sets Gurmat apart from Buddhism is the fact (and a very important one) is that the former believes in One Supreme Being whereas the latter does not. Hence, all other concepts concerning way of life and salvation would be vastly different. Similarities can be found in all religions. This does not prove anything. How do I know? Because my Satguru told me and He is not a liar. He received the re
  10. 1. Guru Sahib has seen God Himself with His very own eyes. He also provided us with the path to have the same vision. It follows logically that you trust the one who knows for sure over the one who is not sure. Sikhi is a monotheistic faith whereas Buddhism is atheistic. Gurmat condemns asceticism but Buddhism encourages it. Nirvana is the result of self-effort but Gurmat salvation is the result of grace of God. Both faiths are poles apart. 2. Gurbani is divine and its source is God Himself. Gurbani is Satguru. Hence, reading Bani means talking to Satguru and receiving guidance. N
  11. The following article explains the concept of Sikh State according to Guru Nanak Dev Ji. http://www.sikhfreedom.com/guru-nanaks-concept-of-state
  12. Indian Constitution is NOT federal but unitary in nature. State autonomy is suppressed using many articles and clauses in the Constitution. Even basic fundamental rights are subject to "national security, peace" etc. which are vague and deliberately written to allow the Center to trample over human rights. Emergency via presidential rule, suspension of state government etc. Are clear examples of this. This is why Sikhs foresaw the danger of such a document and refused to sign it as it was against the promises made by Congress. Article 25 is not the only reason but one of many reasons.
  13. Download link doesn't work for me. Good effort though. Here is an english article: http://www.sikhfreedom.com/sant-jarnail-singh-bhindranwale
  14. Whether it was 20k or 80k it doesnt matter. The truth is that Guru Sahib did not select a few out of so many to give Amrit. It was given to all Sikhs. Those who took it remained Sikhs while others became bemukhs. Khanda Amrit is the only way to become Sikh and obtain Naam. Other methods are not valid.
