  3. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I would just like to share some info about some radiation that is emitted by a lot of products in our homes. These include your wireless router for Wifi. cordless phones and mobile phones Please have a look at this video http://youtu.be/ICA19oKPi5I Cordless phone shows radiation emitting without making a call, even while on the base: http://youtu.be/2V4AmkMKg_0 Very High amounts coming from a mobile phone: http://youtu.be/GOgo0z_98JQ?list=UUaLwcpzmAp9cYPmMdKmhb9g From a laptop http://youtu.be/fCp8itdHYxg Please take the time to have a quick look at these videos, Its actually amazing that this amount of radiation is filling our homes, work places and schools day to day. I don't think this is good for health long term. This is rarely talked about at the moment, but I think these devices should be used with care to limit exposure. There are some tips to reduce exposure: Used wired internet access through an Ethernet cable and turn off your wifi capability from the router (you may need to go online to do this, its not as easy as just plugging in an Ethernet as it continues to transmit, please check it) Keep mobile phone calls short or use a hands free kit, use speakerphone, text Keep mobiles far from your body if possible, turn your device to airplane mode (or switch off if not using it) Don't sleep with your mobile near your head or body (turn on to airplane mode or even better switch it off) Use a corded phone, its safer When sleeping turn off cordless phones, wifi and other electrics as much as you can. even alarm clock radios close to your head transmit Use laptops on a table, try not to put them on your lap. When using a laptop it transmits much more radiation when on charge rather than not on charge Turn your laptop to airplane mode, (turn off the wireless function) This is massive subject area that is virtually unknown but is people are gaining more knowledge, Good youtube in depth talk http://youtu.be/dYjAAqUfHtE Mobile Phone Towers There are numerous mobile phone towers or antennas on building around the UK, They are in residential areas, these towers emit frequencies constantly day and night and there may be 3 or 4 in one area. Many people have bad effects from living close to them http://youtu.be/MvSTN5rMORM There is a website which you can look at to see how far you live from one: http://sitefinder.ofcom.org.uk/ This information is virtually unknown to most people plus there is not a lot of scientific research at the moment but if you are suffering from fatigue, headaches, etc please consider these solutions and see how you get on. Please tell your friends and family about this if you find it helpful. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

    True or false: Sakhis

    I have also heard of that story of Guru Nanak, Heres some websites which talk more about it, there is a Gurdwara there now called Gurdwara Khand Sahib http://www.sgpc.net/historical-gurdwaras/nanak.asp http://www.historicalgurudwaras.com/India/Punjab/Gurdaspur/GurudwaraShriKandhSahib/gallery.php http://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Gurdwara_Kandh_Sahib

    Wonderful Guru Wonderful Bani

    yes, i agree, I have watched alot of Bhai Sahibs videos, they are just what is needed right now here is a link to the youtube page where you can find all the videos, i love the way they are really easy to understand http://www.youtube.com/user/basicsofsikhi/videos
  8. the mind can be a great trickster when its allowed to go unrestrained, thinking all sorts of things I would say there is a need to keep the mind occupied, either by work, seva, bani, simran etc, keep doing something dont be inactive and especially do not let the mind become inactive, always work on a project, Or, get a line from Gurbani and dwell on it over and over again and contemplate the meanings of it, this might help the other thing I would say is, try bringing the mind inward, into the heart,, dont let it 'outside' so to speak feel the heart, the love, think of the Guru and keep it centred inside, give it a try and see how it feels On another level, when you get these kind of thought, think of something to counteract them. If you think of something bad, reverse it and think of the opposite. The more you do this, the more you train the mind out of this habit and it should start to ease away hopefully Also, read Gurbani and learn about what the Gurus say about the mind, how to control it, go to Sikhitothemax and do some searches
  9. Going to the Gurdwara at anytime is a great experience, but there will probably be a larger congregation on friday evening, saturday morning, saturday evening and sunday morning. A service normally starts between 5pm and 7pm called Rehras, you will have to check what time it starts at your local Gurdwara, this would be a good time to check it out as they recite hymns and also have musicians called Kirtanees playing hymns to music. Hope you enjoy your experience,
  10. I would say its about experience, we want to have the experience of Waheguru. So thats what we practice, having a real experience, once its real, then you know it, until then its an idea But in order to have an experience you need traning/teaching on what to do and what not do. In the same way you want to drive a car, without an instructor it would be very difficult to pick it up, even harder if it was a huge truck, even harder an aeroplane! Reaching Waheguru is even more complex, but the Gurus simplified the method for the people so that a layman can reach God if he does the right things. I would recommend reading the Japji Sahib which is the main hymn of all Sikhs, it contains the philosophy, ideas and many other things all put together in one hymn. This is repeated every single day but Sikhs all over the world. here is a link http://www.3ho.org/k...pji%20Sahib.pdf also check out this video,
  11. wow, very enlightening, answers alot of questions I had and helps with a lot of things i didnt understand

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh (thats the sikh greeting by the way) Hello, nice to see you have an interest in Sikhi, and you have taken the time to find a sikh forum, thats a great effort you have already put in. You are allowed into any Gurdwara in the world. There are no restrictions to entering, regardless of race, religion gender etc, so pop in to your nearest one. I would personally say if you want to know about the sikh religion, is to read the main hymn of the Sikhs which is in the Guru Granth Sahib called Japji Sahib. Japji Sahib contains many beautfful teachings about God, life, the world in which we live in and many other things. It is all written in poetry, but you can view an online translation here http://www.3ho.org/kundalini-yoga/kundalini-yoga-yb/sadhana/images/Japji%20Sahib.pdf Hope that gives you a start Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

    Naam Ras?

    Be humble and do good deeds Drop the ego, drop the 'i did this for someone' or 'i did this seva' Control your kaam, krodh, lobh, moh, ahankaar as much as you can dont get into arguments, follow hukam, feel what you should be doing in the moment, be sincere, dont do things for any material or worldy gain, think of seva as a gift you are allowed to do and just keep going, as the rest is all kirpa/prasad

    Whats Happening To Me...........

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khlasa, Waheguru Ji i Fateh bro, try and stay calm, if your mind is like this the first thing you need to do is some simran, it will help control the mind and stop all of these emotions getting to you, if you dont know what to do, try this link http://www.sikhnet.com/news/how-to-meditate I think you should get back to doing something, like studying, I think most of your emotions are coming from this. If you're only 18, please try and get back into some sort of of course, even a simple uni nearby or just enrol on any course for now, it will keep you busy, and give you some direction, if that fails, get a job, if not permanent, part time, or do some voluntary work, I would really suggest doing something it will really help why have you broken ties with your friends? if they are good friends they will help you and wont feel down around you so dont overthink things, explain to them the problems your having, meet them back up apoart from that, if you feel low or anything, call the sikh helpline on 0845 644 0704, they are open 24hours a day, they will listen to you anonymously apart from these things, do some naam jaap, listen to this, this might help go out for a walk or into town wherever you live, dont stay at home if your feeling like this and go to gurdwara in the evenings, it will really help God Bless

    Depressed And Ashamed

    I would say do your Nitnem if you are not already, keep going to the gurdwara and doing Naam Jaap for at least 5 mins a day to build up a good sort of spiritual shield everyday, otherwise these minor thoughts can creep in and basically drown you in themselves You've got to get a boost everyday to keep you high and untouchable, so try that as far as the job situation goes, I would say on a career level, can you do a course of some sort to boost your prospects? I know you haven't worked in a while and a course can be quick, but might cost a bit but still look into it, might be a quick way to get back into employment of some sort and looks good I know lots of people suffer from anxiety so don't think its just uou, its practically everyone in some way or another. I would say 2 things, firstly listen to kirtan more or if you feel anxiety at anytime hum a tune to yourself to relax you, something you like, and is applicable. Secondly keep doing your naam simran and naam jaap and it could be that the mind needs cleaning from toxic emotions etc, so thats a long term approach, give it a try, let us know how you get on I would just like to say, when we feel under pressure, dont worry so much, things can turn around very quickly when we start acting, dont look back so much, everyday set yourself a goal to acomplish and before you know you will have come so far it will be amazing good luck
