  1. I was just wondering, do any of you have any idea when your family first became Sikhs? Mine became Sikhs at the time of the 7th guru. Guru Har Rai Sahib came to my pind. He stopped off with an army before heading off to Kartarpur Sahib. I don't know how accurate this story is but I was told my some old people, they said that the Guru came to the pind and wanted to stay there. Some villagers refused and turned them away. Then some villagers went after the Guru and asked them to come back. Then the Guru is said "those who came back will stay and the ones who didn't will go away from this pind". Don't know if this story is true, but its the one I was told. So I was just wondering if anyone else knew how their family became Sikh.
  2. Perhaps to get us on side? I don't know. The EDL seem to like Sikhs. But then again, if they manage to do something about Muslims, whos to say they won't go after us? I mean they need support, get us on side and it seems as if the EDL aren't a racist group.
  3. We should stick to eating vegie food in a gurdwara. Like this cat
  4. Last time I checked, people weren't being eaten alive at a gurdwara.
  5. . yeah, my bad wrote it wrong. ਕਬੀਰ ਭਾਂਗ ਮਾਛੁਲੀ ਸੁਰਾ ਪਾਨਿ ਜੋ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਨੀ ਖਾਂਹਿ ॥ ਤੀਰਥ ਬਰਤ ਨੇਮ ਕੀਏ ਤੇ ਸਭੈ ਰਸਾਤਲਿ ਜਾਂਹਿ ॥੨੩੩॥Whosoever takes Marijuana, fish and alcoholic drinks; all his pilgrimages, fasts and performance of religious practices shall go waste (SGGS, p 1377).
  6. In no particular order. Battle of Chamkaur, Sarangari, Battle of Amritsar (1984), Sabraon,Battle of Green Ridge, Mukatsar, battles in the 1971 India-Pakistan war, Bhai Bota Singh and Bhai Garjha Singh (2 against 100), Battle of Sirhind, Battle of Peshawar.
  7. So make an X shape with larh over the joora, and making a v shape on the forehead?
  8. My bunga is so weak. It just falls apart and flops foward. And wouldn't a large dumallah be too big? Is there a way of having a small pagh and a bunga perhaps? Also, I've looked at videos showing how to do a bunga but I can't do it.
  9. Honh sochda honha kai ihe kee kendheaa. Jerhe swaal puchda oho answer karo, larhai karni bandh kardo.
  10. I'm going to start doing MMA and boxing. I need a strong pagh style, or a way of tying up my hair so that it stays out of the way. My hair is long but it is light.
  11. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1L-VMJz9NKA6x1GBAsJx-CqGsLcK2fRW9hPEuXq2Lk_4/edit?hl=en_US
  12. Yeah srigranth.com is a good place to start. If you want videos with translations then this youtube channel is good. http://www.youtube.com/user/wwRajKaregaKhalsaNet/videos It has Sikh hymns and prayers with translations. Alcohol is forbidden if you take amrit. If you keep your hair uncut, then you'll need a turban. If you begin to progress on the path of Sikhi, you may decide to keep your hair and wear a turban. For the time being it is fine and you don't have to wear it. Take it slowly, read and learn about Sikhi until you are 100% sure you want to follow this path.
  13. Lol. Yeah their family doesn't stay in the gurdwara. Besides most gurdware take a percentage from the money they get. My dads best friend from his childhood is a raagi. He has a family to support in India, with no other way of making money. And this thing about affording raagis? What? When you have an akhand path at home the gurdwara will send some over. I think most people who do an akhand path can also afford to give a few £s to a raagi. What else can these people do? At least they are bothering to do parchaar. I feel sorry for the dhaddis. At some gurdware they put them right at the end, so most sangat has left. These guys probably make like £20 in a day, this £20 is split between 3/4 people. If a Punjabi singer can get a few thousand pounds for attending a wedding/party, why can't a raagi get paid to sing at a wedding? Whats wrong about that?
  14. I think she was trying to say that by tying it around, the kirpan and kanga stay in place.
  15. I don't think your using enough soap... or deoderant. Scrub harder.
  16. It says that the Akaal Takht recieved complaints about Neeru Bajwa's tattoo. The jathedar (leader) of the Akaal Takhi issued a statement saying "we have recieved complaints like these before." He also said that "tattooing bani on your body is disrespectful and can cause beadbi. There will be an investigation against people who tattoo themselves using bani.
  17. I had the Dragoon one. Anyone have hotwheels cars?
  18. I used to have fake money (you get those plastic coins and stuff). I used to take it to the gurdwara, then stand infront of the golak and put it in. Good times...
