  2. Look little kid this website isn't a playground. Now or later on is a lame excuse. This should help your confusion: Self Percept (Atam Updesh) Why are you so engrossed in worries? Why are you afraid of some one? Who may kill you? The soul is immortal; it neither dies nor takes birth. The present is here and now, the past is irrecoverable and the future will be good. Don't fret over the past and don't be worried about the future. The present is going on. Why do you cry? What did you lose? When you were born, what did you bring along, which has been lost? What did you produce which has been perished? It is here that you gained and it is here that you lose. The man comes to; and goes from world, empty handed. What you own today was not yours yesterday and will not be yours tomorrow. It does not and will not belong to anyone. You consider it your own and rejoice. This happiness of possession leads you to utter grief. Yours is this world. Start from where you feel to; stay where you desire and wind up where you want to. It has no beginning and no end. You don't fear anyone, but yourself. You are the fright and also the frightened. Change is the truth of life. What you consider as death is life in reality. In a moment a multi-millionaire is turned pauper. Give up the feeling of possession, great & the mean; differentiation of friend & foe. Then all is yours and you for everyone. Your corporeal being is a product of air, water, fire ,sky and earth and it merges into the same leaving behind neither blood nor bones. Still yours existence remains the same. Then ponder over what you are. Wake up! and become the eternal sons of the Almighty. You are the great and unique manifestation of Nature's power. All the divine powers are possessed by you, like a tree hidden in the seed. In fact you don't fear anybody; you don't have any worry, suspicion, pain or grief. You are His dear ones. Surrender yourself completely to Him. Always, remember the "Waheguru" (God) to achieve salvation. Let your life be guided by the saying "Whatever God wills, is good". Be content with the will of God. Remember Him both in pleasure & pain. Compiled by His Holiness Sant Isher Singh Ji Maharaj I thank you for you reply.Don`t call me a little kid,for one i`m not a little kid,you do not know me or my life and what i`ve been through and am going through, and number two, ain`t you supposed to be a sikh? i thought sikhism is based on love,giving, helping out,etc forgive me if i was wrong. cheers Carl P.S There is a gurudwara near me so i might go and check it out. Thanks for your help.
  3. Ok thank you all for your answers,Still not totally sure i want to be a sikh, i mean it`s a big step for me, as i don`t think i`d like to have a beard and a turban.But i agree with the basis of sikh beliefs. I might become one in my later years say late 20s-30s. Am so confused. cheers Carl

  5. Hey all I`m thinking of becoming a sikh but need some questions anwsered first.Ok,so i`m a white teenage englishmen.Does the colour of my skin affect me becoming a sikh? this is not meant in a racist or harmful way what so ever,it`s just,you know you look in sikh books etc and you always see darker skinned people,and i`ve never seen a whiteman as a sikh. Also do you have to where a turban? as i read on a website you don`t,but i thought you do.And lastly, do you, when you become a sikh,have to change your name? as i read in a book today that you do,unless i`ve misinterpretated it. Thank you for any help i recieve. Carl
