    The boy and girl should bow before the Guru Granth Sahib to betoken their acceptance of these instructions. Thereafter, the girl's father or the principal relation should make the girl grasp one end of the sash which the boy is wearing over his shoulders and the person in attendance of the Guru Granth Sahib should recite the matrimonial circumambulation stanzas {Lavan of the fourth Guru in the Suhi musical measure section of the Guru Granth Sahib } (Pp. 773-4). After the conclusion of the recitation of each of the stanzas, the boy, followed by the girl holding the end of the sash, should go round the Guru Granth Sahib while the ragis or the congregation sing out the recited stanza.

    The boy and girl, after every circumambulation, should bow before the Guru Granth Sahib in genuflexion, lowering their forehead to touch the ground and then stand up to listen to the recitation of the next stanza.There being four matrimonial circumambulation stanzas in the concerned hymn, the proceeding will comprise four circumambulations with the incidental singing of the stanza.After the fourth circumabulation, the boy and girl should, after bowing before the Guru Granth Sahib, sit down at the appointed place and the Ragis or the person who has conducted the ceremony should recite the first five and the last stanza of the Anand Sahib.

    This is not very helpful, but I work in Darlington which is like 20-25 minutes from Middlesbrough. Darlington is pretty dead, but I think 'brough is a much larger city, so its probably not as bad. There's only one Gurdwara here and only one Gurdwara in 'brough too from what I understand.

    From what I've seen in Darlington, there are hardly any Gursikhs, and there's no youth base. Middlesbrough might be different?

  4. Khalsa Camp is not an "AKJ Camp".

    The Camp organisers make it pretty clear throughout the camp and also in the lectures that the Camp is a Panthic camp that welcomes all and aims to promote Sikhi and Panthic Maryada. Last year there were specific talks on Panthic Eiktaa and looking beyond satkaar-yog Jathas and remembering that we are all part of the Khalsa Panth.

    It is very irresponsible for the poster to make such comments as it causes confusion and opportunity for people to be mistaken and think that they are not welcome to a certain camp.

    On the same note, Boss Camp doesn't label itself as a Taksaali Camp (as mentioned by K_Z Veer jee). The camp is welcome to all and promotes Sikhi and inspires particularly new comers to adopting the Sikh Path.

    There is nothing wrong with Jathas. Some youth start saying "We should have no Jathabandis! They divide us." It is not the Jatha (groups) that divide us, it is our thinking (mind) that divides us and takes us away from Guru jee, let alone fellow Gursikhs.

    Any Jathabandi which promotes Gurmat and inspires others to follow Guru jee should be respected and celebrated. Throughout history there have been groups/jathas. Guru Amar Daas jee made the Manji System and divided areas and made people in charge of these areas to do parchaar. Similar, during th 18th Century there were 12 (really 11) Misls or federations part of Dal Khalsa. Each Misl operated independently BUT they came under the UMBRELLA of the Panth and one thing which united them all - that is that they were all Sikhs, promoted Gurmat and considered themselves Sikhs of the Guru.

    If you are part of a group. Great. It is a great support network and Sangat and helps people in their Sikhee. But we need to remember that the group is part of one family and that the group alone is not the Panth.

    Sorry for long post and apologese if I ruined the thread.

    May Guru jee keep us all in Chardi Kalaa and close to Guru Jee's Feet.

    Hope everyone takes time out and attends Khalsa Camp this year! :)

    Bhai Surjit Singh and other Abhiyaasee Gursikhs will be attending from India and sharing their spiritual knowledge and inspiration with the Youth.

    Bhul Chuk Maaf.

    Check your Antivirus/Internet Security software. It may be blocking it for some reason. I had the same issue with a couple of perfectly fine websites being blocked.

    Hope that helps.

  6. Vaheguroo Jee Ka Khalsaa! Vaheguroo Jee Ki Fatheh!

    try and help each other progress in your sikhi before the anand karaj, instead of useless stuff.

    If you do feel the need to meet/converse, do so about Guru Sahib! That can be done through Gurmat Veechar or doing Keertan/Paath together.

    Hope that doesn't sound too extreme. =)
