    Taksali Santhiya

    Gurfateh ji There used to be a sewa provided by one Taksali Singh (Baba Thakur Singh ji da chela) where santhiya instruction was provided through Skype. Is there anybody doing such seva nowdays?

    I may be a bit late, and you are probably already in amritsar- but the shop i recommended is at "13a bhram bhuta mrt" and has been renamed "DEEP KIRPAN STORE" Rab rakha
  4. Behenji If the only problem is your not being a sikh, then that is something that can be easily overcome by conversion. However it is extremely unlikely that that is the only problem. There may be a caste and racial element to this scenario that we are not aware of.... if this is the case, then sikhi and becoming a sikh of the Guru would help you more than anything else could, but you will still have to face the fact that the family wont want you. This would be overcome by the presence of a child a few years down the road. If you feel connected with this marg then ignore what i am about to say..... but if you do not feel an honest, sincere and genuine and connection to the path that is described by the 10 Gurus, then please do not fold to the oppressive pressure of others to conform. Believe it or not, that is absolutely diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Gurus in the first place. Guru Tegh Bahadur ji Maharaj died to allow hindus have the right to remain hindus- so if you dont feel like sikhi is something you would want for yourself then respect yourself and the message the gurus brought, and just be yourself. No matter what you choose, understand Behenji that we will support you. To thine own self be true.

    Find Bhai Randeep Singh (aka Chotu) sahebs shop.... it used to be called JK Gift Store..... he is the most reputable, accomodating and honest vendor in amritsar. He has a new shop which i believe is at the entrance of the Darbar saheb where Guru Ramdas Nivas is. He will go the extra mile to help people out, and puts singhs in contact with blacksmiths etc that wont rip you off. Havent been there in a while so i dont know where the new shop is exactly- but it is worth the small effort to ask people where the shop is.

    Depressed And Ashamed

    _singh_ji..... you are in a cycle at the moment that is undoubtedly having a snowball effect. The only way to get out of it is to just make up your mind to attempt something and stick to it. Its hard, but just try not think about the past and get back up on the horse and give it another go. If the normal full-time student gig doesn't suit you, then you could always think of a different way of studying, ie an apprenticeship in a trade or part-time/night college (assuming that studies/upskilling is what you wanted to do). You may be plagued with doubts about life Singh saheb, but just know that the world is your oyster:- and there is no doubt about THAT.

    Nirmala Sants

    Sangat Ji, Using the internet, I have been doing a bit of reading up about the various deras/branches of the Nirmalay Sants recently, and noticed that each dera/lineage seems to have its own specialities or focus. Sometimes the internet’s reliability is not that great, so I thought it might be a nice addition to this site, and source of information for people, if we made a list of Nirmalay Sants. Would Sangat Ji please be so kind as to put down the names of different Nirmala Sants/Lineages that they know of (personally) and a brief description of their history/speciality/et cetra, and whether or not they focus on traditional task of engaging the texts and theologies of various other traditions (eg vedas, advaita etc). For example: Baba Balbir Singh Seechewal Walay, and Nirmalay of Seechewal. These days they seem to have a focus on environmental protection and regeneration. I am not sure of their scholarly theological interests, but the Baba seems to travel the world preaching to people, and I have seen kirtan sessions from places such as philipines. For an example see this video http://www.nirmalkuteya.com/PlayVideo/holywaragainst.asp There are other such videos in Punjabi and English on the website, and a history of the lineage, aswell as biographies of the Head Sants of it. I have heard of a number of other sants (eg Baba Jeet Singh of Nirmal Kutiya Johalan, Baba Ram Singh from Nirmala Ashram Rishikesh, Nirmala Ashram of Lopon lineage), but I do not know about their special practices. If anyone could give info on these or other lineages that they know of (eg maybe a local Nirmala Baba that stays at their ancestral pind) that would be a great addition to the thread. Rab Rakha

    Are There Any Arab Sikhs?

    I do not believe so, but this website is associated with his ashram http://www.amritnam.com/ Islamic law is not one unified code, but it is accepted by most fuqaha (islamic jurists) that in dar ul islaam (islamic territories) people of non-muslim religions should not be allowed to build new temples or religious centres, and those that were created prior to islamic rule should not be maintained or fixed. As a result it is unlikely that there ever was Gurdwaray in Saudi, since the state has been run along strict salafi (literalist/fundamentalist) islaam for the last 150 years or so. But that is just speculation based on dogmatic lines; maybe there was a few somewhere at some stage and a blind eye was turned to. However, it is possible that there are a few in the United Arab Emirates (especially likely in Dubai).

    Are There Any Arab Sikhs?

    Karta Singh Khalsa is a sikh of moroccan/arabic speaking background. He has an ashram in south france, where there possibly may be a number of other franch sikhs of moroccan descent. But if anyone would like to offer the sikh way of life to arabs, france may be the most suitable place initially. Tunisia may also be suitable, and potentially in egypt amongst coptic/arab christians. Thats just my two cents.
  13. Changing the Langar menu is fine. Actually this was Guruji's wish when he made it, and the point was to be able to make everybody eat together, and in so doing forced people of all castes to sit together. The fact was driven further home by the fact that Guruji's Darshaan could not be had until individuals had partaken of the langar in the proscribed manner. So changing the langar menu so that more people can eat there is not only fine but recommendable. Sikhi is the experience of a personal relationship with Guruji, not just useless traditions or rituals (like setting a menu in Guru Da Wara). Guru Da Wara IS Shiva's temple, and is also Allah's temple, because both are just names for Akaal Purkh, which again is just another name. Our names limit things, and a Gurmukh will always know God from the REALITY of the name, not just from their favourite pronounciation of it. Like you yourself brought up paa g, remember Shaheedi Guru Tegh Bahadur Dev Ji Maharaja; he made the greatest sacrifice in mankind's history, as it wasnt even for his own people or methodology (even though in reality ALL people are Guruji's people, but that's a side issue). It shows us that people can get that gyaan and mukt irrespective of their faith, and that the TRUE NAME and connection to God alone gets mukt, not the outer appearance or rituals of some self-righteous hypocrite. Bhagats all came from different physical manifestations of faith, be they muslim or hindu, but Waheguru does not see these distinctions (not even modern sikhs preoccupations with asserting their own difference in outer appearance or rituals). There is atma and paramatma, and everything outside what brings a person from atma to paramatma is maya. Some maya is beneficial AS A MEANS, but as an ends in itself it becomes just yet another useless ritual and an impediment to mukt. So ignore ignorance until it starts to oppress, and at that time alone take up the shastar.... this is the way of the sant sipahi

    Winter Youth Camps

    WaheGuru i was just wondering if any camps run in the uk during (similar to the summer camps such as khalsa camp or boss camp that seem to be so successful), or is it just a summer thing. Cheers
  15. Sat Sri Akaal i never knew about bibi until last night when i was shown a few articles, and that she had passed on immediately i felt shame that i had never looked for her writings before, that someone at such a young and tender age could express herself so beautifully. This garden of life has lost one of its most beautiful and promising roses, but she has started the journey of the True Reality. i pray Waheguru makes her time easy until she returns to pure paramatma. I shall always remember her for the inspiring, sincere individual that she is and was.....
  16. ah im not too bad cheers

    hope you're alright too

    Akal Takht Asks Sikhs To Go Green

    This is a really really important message, and with Guru's help, it is one that we must make sure to spread. Too many people these days are busy talking about modern politics or local guardwara committee incidents, but they forget to act upon the ways of Guru Ji. Have we forgotten about Guru Har Rai in the flower garden? Sat Sri Akaal
