  1. I thought he made good points. I don't believe in reincarnation and karma (as a supernatural law) myself, and I've come across more than a few other Sikhs who echo the same sentiments.
  2. My Gurdwara does it on a weekly basis and I help out as much as I can. I also volunteer with municipal charities and food banks
  3. Why not a 14 day food drive and feed the poor initiative? Surely, that would be much better for Sarbat Da Bhalla...
  4. I suggest you take your own advice: You didn't quote anything in Gurbani; you took a single line out of context and it was in English as well, a poor translation at that (imo)...
  5. Why are you taking single lines from Gurbani out of context? Post the entire Shabad and then we will have a better understanding of what is actually being said, I'm afraid you can't just take a single line out of context, twist the meaning and use it to support a position. Oh, and Gurbani also talks about goblins, demons and other mythical creatures- please tell me you don't think they actually exist...
  6. I disagree. Gurbani also says that mortals can become "the very image of God." So are we also God?
  7. I know I know lol sorry if it gave the wrong impression, I know you agreed with me I just meant why those people would accept the Gurus as God-incarnate but not Jesus Christ :o
  8. Incarnations? Really? The Mool Mantar also mentions how Ik Oankar is "Ajooni"= without births and deaths, which kinda makes that argument impossible. There is no concept of incarnations in Sikhi because God is not born and God does not pass away. If the Gurus were God-incarnates, then why not Jesus Christ?
  9. Guru Granth Sahib Ji is not God. The first thing Sikhs read every morning is the Mool Mantar and it is very clear that Ik Oankar is "without form". Ik Oankar is not a physical object which can bee seen with the eyes, neither the Guru Granth Sahib nor the 10 Gurus which came before it were God- God-conscious beings, certainly, but not God. That is my understanding
  10. Alright men, time to start out own grooming service :biggrin2: (not serious). @OP, do you really think girls only go for clean shaven guys? One of my best friends has never touched a hair on his head, wears a turban and is dating a Muslim girl. Although granted he does trim his beard (not to the point of stubble, the beard is still pretty big), but it isn't hard for a sardar to date a girl, sikh//hindu/muslim or whatever, assuming he knows how to talk to people and is confident. And yes it p1sses muslim guys off, most of them, even the more "liberal" ones, can't stand the idea of one of "th
  11. Oh come on man, do you think everyone who claims to be a Brahmgiani/ gets labelled a Bhramgiani by other people actually is one? Do you believe every Baba who says he can tell you about your past lives and what will happen in your future? Yes, there are some people out there who are deserving of the title "Brahmgiani", but they are in the minority, for every true Bhrahmgiani out there, there's at least 4-5 fake ones looking to take advantage of other people.
  12. "Personally, I do not care for the opinions of any sants or bhramgianis. More often than not, they are parasites to the panth that do far more harm than good. These blood-sucking sants/bhramgiani's think they know better than our Gurus?" Did you miss the bold part? I'm not saying they are all bad, but in my experiences, most are only out to take advantage of uneducated gullible people who don't know any better. And I am not apologizing for anything, because as far as sants/bhramgianis are concerned, there are 2 types: a) Those who live/preach in line with the teachings of Gurbani,
  13. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but it's funny how Amritdharis who at one side, because they have taken amrit, among other things, have promised to treat all humans the same way. At the other side they think it is okay to share food with one group of people and not another. You don't take amrit and then become a good person. You become a good person and then take amrit. It's a journey of development. The concept of jhoota food has most likely been borrowed from the brahmins. It is a Hindu concept and has (unfortunately) seeped into Sikhi like so many other Hindu concepts. The concept of j
  14. Civilized discussion, not even once. :nono:
  15. Glad I wasn't raised in India then, Punjabi culture is by far the worst thing that ever happened to Sikhi. 1) How are Amrtidharis cleaner than non-Amritdharis? And don't say it is because the act of taking Amrit makes you cleaner or that Amritdharis have hygienic principles they need to adhere to. I can't tell you the number of times I've been in the Gurdwara washroom and I see Amritdhari guys come out of the stalls and wash their hands without soap, or worse yet, leave without washing them at all. And then these are the same guys you see in the kitchen help prepare the food or in the langar
