  1. The guru warns against rituals. rituals are those things that serve no practical purpose and could rather have some downsides. with ritual one does it for the sake of doing it. A ritual can also be a tradition that one is doing out of habit. It may be something blindly followed without question. it may certainly also be done out of fear- either of not conformism to the majority, or out of fear of some mythical story- e.g. you will burn in hell if you dont always do so and so ritual. Or you will suffer greatly if you don't always touch the floor of a car door before entering it. the word ritual
  2. Panthicity and S4NGH- you're speaking over people's heads I'm afraid- people are generally unwilling to listen to this subject. For starters a Sikh must always make the ethical choice. Being a Sikh is being an embodiment of ethics. This is a simple principle that when applied, can make life very easy. However some people don't care about ethics. Ethics when applied to this particular issue immediately raises red flags for the suffering and torturing of the domesticated milk-giving animals and the deforestation, loss of habitat and biodiversity and global warming caused by the existence of a c
  3. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh Dear Sangat ji, I need some help please. I may require an string instrument to be picked up from near Manchester- and either posted or otherwise carried by someone already travelling, down to London. If anyone is able to help please contact me. Thank you kindly. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh
  4. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh panthicunity, you have hit upon a truth of life, a truth which is given by the guru, but like other truths is paid lip-service and is presently ignored and lobbed into the waste basket. Consumerism, capitalism, indeed any form of 'ism' is a terrible disease. Why is it a disease? There has always been lust, greed, ego etc in society translating into uncessary wants, desires and ego fulfilling megalomania, however it was never part of 'popular culture' or the mainstream. For the large part of human history, we have lived HEALTHY and HAPPY lives, and
  5. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh We've been everywhere but no success, it's mostly sikhs in the delhi motor trade or who drive an Enfield and we've only across sikhs who are wheeling and dealing and running after money or wanting to scam us- all but one elderly scooter parts Sardar who tried his best to help us but in vain. May god have mercy on these people and show them a path away from greed. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh
  6. Please anyone? Most Enfield motorcycle owners and market traders are sikh but we're having no luck. Is there anyone in delhi who can help please? We need it to transport items and people to far flung places. Please. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh
  7. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh Sadsangat ji, A delhi based charitable trust involved in building completely self-sufficient communities is setting up a new village. children's orphanages and parchar of Guru jis message throughout India is also planned (and possibly worldwide one day God willing). The trust is in urgent need of a 2nd hand motorcycle to transport heavy goods and also people across long distances, ideally an Enfield Bullet. Please would sangat help to aquire this vehicle. A Sewadar is in delhi presently, not having any success with market traders or classifieds
  8. Why has admin not closed this disgusting and racist thread yet? Or does admin need a point by point rebuttal to point out the filthy and depraved comments made, against God, the great Guru ji and his sikhs? Please stop hating and ask God for guidance. I will pray specifically for your souls. Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh
  9. http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/apr/28/australia-boom-aboriginal-story-despair Australia's boom is anything but for its Aboriginal people The story of the first Australians is still poverty and humiliation, while their land yields the world's biggest resources boom Eleven miles by ferry from Perth is Western Australia's "premier tourist destination". This is Rottnest Island, whose scabrous wild beauty and isolation evoked, for me, Robben Island in South Africa. Empires are never short of devil's islands; what makes Rottnest different – indeed, what makes Australia different
  10. Nagar kirtan a waste of time, money, energy etc. It is not gurmat, it is not part of rehat, it simply is maya. If you disagree, please contemplate on the shabad. If you still disagree, may God help you. One does not need a parade to spread the message of sikhi, one needs committed Gursikhs who are so full of love for God that they will spread His true message throughout mankind and serve them. Rather, NGD is PPD (Punjab Parade Day)- complete with stubble faced dhol players leading masses of people, for most of whom, it's one of few occasions in the year that they step into the Gurdwara. PPD i
  11. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh 1. Dhan Dhan Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj, Shabad Guru, is a living guru, as much as Guru Gobind Singh ji and Guru Nanak Dev ji. Can you imagine Guru Gobind Singh sahib welcoming non-sikhs into his house and carrying out their marriage with his blessings? Will he have hours to waste to attend a ceremony of a couple who don't give 2 bits about God and Sikhi? Does he like patits? No. But yes, he will welcome all and sundry into his court to sing to them the Shabad to imbibe God's true essence and help them spiritually and bless them with amrit. 2. As
  12. Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh Thanks for replying, please don't mind follow up questions, I'm trying to understand. I understand humility of folded hands, but what is the spiritual significance of standing up ritual? Also, when in human form, did guru sahib also stand during ardaas or did they remain seated. I still don't understand, So are we kneeling to Guru sahib as he is present or to Nirgun God who is omnipresent? The ritual has to be fixed- it can't be matha thek when Guru ji is present and to God when he is not present. One does not kneel to God physically in Sikhi-
  13. Good to see sangat stand up for Dhan Dhan Dhan Dhan Dhan Guru sahib Maharaj. The Sikh's speech was both assertive as well as conciliatory and as he said indeed we are all children of Guru Sahib and one God. Such reverence for guru sahib brought tears to my eyes. If only sikhs would repeat this across the world.

    New to Sikhi

    My dear brother, my advice is thus: Sikhism is all about God; it is very God-focussed, keep your mind attached to God during your journey. Be wary of rituals (insist on understanding the spirirutal meanings of everything) and try to understand the essence of Sikhi for yourself (try some quiet meditation). Sikhi is a universal path for all of humanity (humanity is one, God is one); it is not just 'another good religion', love for God is the true religion. Try to forget everything that you know and have been taught (heavens, hells, God's qualities and form, creation myths etc), and allow yoursel
  15. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh I have learnt the ardaas ritual by observing sangat in the gurdwara- when to kneel, when to rise etc. Outside of the gurdwara, I do a personal and long ardaas (conversation with God) without the standard structure present in gutka sahibs. However now I am learning the ardaas, for the sake of community harmony and in case my services ever are called upon, I need to be able to perform the ritual correctly, but I don't know what is actually happening during ardaas. Please help me understand. Questions: - What is the reason for standing and folding ha
