  1. Gurfateh Ji When you do a google of what is Whey Powder they say : Whey or milk plasma is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained; it is a by-product of the manufacture of cheese or casein ... (so whey powder is whey liquid dried up)... Have you ever seen paneer being made? When the lemon juice is added to the warm milk, a reaction happens and the milk starts to curdle (separating the milk solids that are white, from an almost transparent liquid)... the transparentish liquid is Whey. So simply, it is a dairy by-product. In that way, it's ok for lacto-vegetarians (ie. S
  2. "Interesting how the "uncle" is a white man confused_smile.gif lol " Excuse me, but I find that comment extremely useless, and rather rash. Being white, has nothing to do with the act in question. So next time keep your comment to yourself if it doesn't add anything important to the discussion. Fateh
  3. I don't understand... what exactly happened and why? Can someone please clarify...
  4. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh Sangat Ji, Waho Waho AKAAL MOORAT! Waho Waho Image of the Undying!!!! Here's a few beautiful shabads about Image, I wish to share today, with the beautiful Sangat ofthe Lord. When in doubt, or not in doubt, Listen to the words of the True Guru! Ang 992 Gurvaak 4 of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj: O my eyes, the Lord has infused His Light into you; do not look upon any other than the Lord. Do not look upon any other than the Lord; the Lord alone is worthy of beholding. This whole world which you see is the image of the Lord; only t
  5. Regarding female infanticide and abortion... In my Social Psychology textbook of all places, it was mentioned that: Punjab has the highest rates in the whole world, and china as a country is ranked 2nd. It didn't mention Sikhs and their turbans, though there was a picture of a Sikh police officer alongside clean-shaven people of the west. It did not explain the picture at all, which was in the conformity chapter. Instead it mentioned the Infanticide rates of Punjab, a very small province now, as having higher rates than even china. Now... that's to worry about. Whatever happened to the
  6. Someone once explained to me that... the 5 evils are like a house. Attachment is the foundation Anger, Greed, Lust, and Ego are the 4 pillars at the corners If the foundation breaks, the house can't stand and the pillars crumble to the ground. ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Indeed... Anger can not happen without attachment to one's own views Greed can not happen without attachment to what we collect and want to possess Lust can't happen without attachment to worldly pleasures of the flesh Ego can't happen without attachment to one's own self identity It's like a house of cards... If the foundation of
  7. To top it all off, out of all these other genocides and holocausts there's not even one mention of Punjab India when you look at the list they have under 20C genocides...
  8. Looking at the conference details found at : http://efchr.mcgill.ca/ConferenceProgram_en.php?menu=6 No. No Sikh names anywhere. -------------------------------------- If I would have known about it earlier, I would have forced someone to go. Or I would have gone myself, though I can hardly represent the Sikhs and Genocide... someone HAD to go... come on! Geez, we need to wake up... we're missing all the band-wagons available, for educating people about what the Sikhs went through, are going through now, and Who Sikhs are. If we want any support, help, understanding, and whatever else it ta
  9. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh Pyaray Sangat Ji, This will be long, so I'm warning you... but PLEASE please take the time to read through it, I guarantee it will be fun and interesting, ok? If we look at World History, we will find a couple common features: Societies, Countries, Nations, Entire civilizations, and even Religions, literally break down by Division. I'm going to share a bit of examples, because history is a greatly undervalued source of advice on what "not to do". Here are a few examples: The Jews of Ancient time divided into 14 tribes and lead nomadic lives; It
  10. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh, I would take it as a compliment and GOOD sign if people who arn't sikh are still taking interest in Sikhi and in educating others (wow, atleast someone's doing the educating to others, if sikhs arn't themselves...). And like someone else said, just include a detailed note saying how to respect the kakkars and information on the kakkars (meanings and such) I'm pretty sure most will appreciate the extra info and respect the request... ~ Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh
  11. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh Sangat Ji, This is an opportunity to do a small seva to raise awareness and consciousness for the environment. Thousands of bloggers from all over the world are getting together to post about various aspects of the environment, in each their own way... I thought it would be cool for us Sikhs to participate in this kind of global seva. It might be an opportunity to think about the Environment with respect to Sikhi, and it's very needed seva. The official date is October 15! Details can be found at: http://blogactionday.org/ Thank you! Waheguru j
  12. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh, I was also thinking... If us Sikhs are as human-rights oriented as we like to think and say... then we have to be informed, watch this movie, read up, share with others... etc... and REACT, (in the least harmful way possible, but the most effective way possible). Sikhism is a DEMOCRATIC religion. You can see that by the past Gurmattas, etc. Human/Civil rights is strongly dependent on having CHOICE. Democracy stands on the premise of choice. If choice is removed, human rights are removed... got it? Sikhism, past and present... is the world's top
  13. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh, Thanks for sharing the video! BUT I just wanted to let you all know... it's not just about Christianity... that's just part 1 of the movie. And the whole morale behind that section is to say that religion controls people... or in other words (as you would see if you watch the whole video) that beliefs, expectations, media, money... control people. The second section is on 9-11 and other "terrorist" events, and gives a very good survey througout History of these kinds of events... and their implications on society and controlling society. The thir
  14. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh Ji, Bhenji, you are right that we should listen and read Gurbani in it's Original form, Gurmukhi. There is no doubt that translations can not come near to the real thing... But, if people do not understand gurbani to begin with, how can they follow it, and fall in love with it, and understand it and live by it? We should give a lil slack, and say that those who don't know a word of gurmukhi or punjabi and maybe never heard the language before in their lives (like how i started out), have some special circumstances - use translations to help to lea
