  1. Your hair came out? You should tell your hair that homosexuality is not allowed in Sikhi. End of.
  2. He probably doesn't know much about the Sikh religion himself. I think your enthusiasm for the Sikh religion is causing feelings of inadequacy and guilt (to some extent), and he doesn't know how to deal with it. Don't worry, just keep doing what you're doing and don't lose heart.
  3. I'm not against anyone celebrating or even casually observing the upcoming festivities, but as a Sikh once you realise what occurred during Sikh history when the rest of the world is celebrating Christmas, I don't see how any Sikh can bring themselves to raise a smile at that time of year. I'm always rather sad during Christmas in recent years. I don't want to be that way, but I can't help it when you think of all that happened to us a few hundred years ago. Dark times and the dard can be felt rather strongly.
  4. Speak to a professional. You need to overcome this issue before it takes over your life.
  5. I prefer the Van Helsing from the book, but, yes, Django is a favourite of mine. As Stephen would say, "I axed you, who this Singh up on that nag?". :giggle:
  6. I read a bit of the Bible once. It resulted in me becoming a fan of Charlton Heston's religious movies from the 50s. Wonderful times.
  7. True words. When your own people have shown you nothing but contempt and treachery, whilst the so-called "other" was the only one to give you a hand when you most needed it, what is a person to think?
  8. That's just basic langar etiquette. That's madness. I wouldn't even do that at home.
  9. Some like to add their own masaleh to spice up proceedings, all the while thinking, "As long as it gets the sangat on-side, whether it's strictly true or not it doesn't really matter as long as I'm not blaspheming or leading them away from Waheguru". Whilst others stick to the message, not one syllable more or less, and they leave it up to us to take the decision, without any inducements of any sort. Whatever works I guess.
  10. There's two ways to look at it: Some analyse to truly comprehend (and occasionally it does go over the head of most people such as myself), whilst there's a few who analyse and over-expand to make themselves feel superior to the simple folk. I guess it depends a lot on the intention.
  11. Well, whoever recites Sukhmani Sahib will get the phall of it, even if they were told to do it by a "fradulent" baba. But I suppose if you recite it for material gain as opposed to spiritual bliss, that's when you end up taking liberties.
  12. For most Sikhs it just bleeds into Diwali, imo. You rarely get people to differentiate between the two when most Sikhs are behind closed doors. It might've made a difference if the two festivals had occured on different dates, but I guess historically Guru Sahib arrived back at Amritsar from prison on Diwali, was it?
  13. They are shaheeds whatever the ramifications of their actions. The fact they chose to sacrifice their lives for what they thought was the only way to stop a leader and her government hell-bent on the destruction of a minority, shows they felt there was no other course of action. What India chose to do to Sikhs post-Indira Gandhi is a reflection of its sick, depraved nature.
  14. You've done it, so you can't change it. I'm guessing you're unmarried? I think it's the feelings of guilt that you are getting you down? You could torment yourself, slip further into despair, but forget all that, and resume your life from the point you feel it all went a bit pear-shaped. If you feel what you did was wrong ask for forgiveness and get on with life. You can't really do much than that.
  15. I've been thinking the same for a few weeks now. May God forgive us. In terms of this topic, we (Sikh men) start crying when Sikh females begin to look at white guys or men from other races as potential life partners, but when Sikh bibiya want to have a bit of a swim with other like-minded Sikh bibiya we still aren't happy, because somehow we think it'll descend into a scene from Baywatch. I'm all for modesty, decency, and self-respect, but give these bibiyan some credit.
  16. It doesn't matter, some guys use those full-body suits indoors when swimming (something about the chlorine in the water not being right for their skin, I'm not sure though(, so if guys can do that then I don't see why bibiya cannot.
  17. There's full body spandex (?) swimming costumes for guys, so I imagine there has to be something similar for the ladies.
  18. I guess it boils down to you being strong enough to look beyond the past of a girl who has partaken in such things, IF the girl is devoted to you, and you feel she is a good person who may have gone through a phase in the foolishness of youth (amongst other things). If you want somebody untouched then you have no choice but to keep on waiting until that girl comes along. Simple.
  19. Everytime there's been a thread on meat eating Cisco Singh turns up and says Akal Takhat Sahib says it's fine for Sikhs to eat meat. As far as I can recall he's never mentioned halal.
