  1. Please can someone quote a shabad telling to consume meat? Very simple request. Just 1 specific shabad nothing else. There are shabads that tell us to consume Roti, Grains etc. But I can't find a shabad to tell us to consume meat. As Sikhs we follow Guru Ji's shabad, therefore this is where we seek guidance to live our life.
  2. It seems that threads where posts become meat vs veggie issue then that is a no no.
  3. Posters should be careful otherwise this thread will become closed just like other similar threads on this topic.
  4. Gurmantar is the Naam that you receive when you accept Sri Guru Granth Sahib as your Guru. Guru Ji via Panj Pyare gives you the Gurmantar Vaheguru and you are told how to recite it and told the code of conduct by which to live. The reason you have life is to merge back with Vaheguru, and you need the Gurmantar to do this.
  5. Firstly remove all your wants and simply love Vaheguru. Remember Vaheguru is everywhere and inside all of us. For most people Vaheguru is asleep inside them. Once one receives the Gurmantar from Guru Ji via Panj Pyare, and then recite on the Gurmantar then Vaheguru becomes awakened and you will see the light. Also always trust in Vaheguru. It isn't easy taking care of the whole universe so just let go and love Vaheguru because he always knows best.
  6. http://www.damdamitaksaal.org/ is a good place to start. It also contains area contacts for more information.
  7. Being Amritdhari is a way of life to live in accordance with Guru Ji's will (Rehat). Guru Ji's gives naam that is why it is called Gurmantar. Without Guru Ji one will not achieve liberation. Also If one is living the way of an Amritdhari before taking Amrit, ie getting up at Amritvela to do naam simran and Nitnem, devoting your whole life to Guru Ji, then why not just take Khande Di Pahul? It shouldn't be that difficult.
  8. Good idea. can't wait for it to happen. HERE'S ANOTHER IDEA. Now with globalisation maybe we could have 5 Takhts in each continent. Europe, Asia, Americas, Africa & Oceania Takhts. Maybe have a flag with 5 Khandas like the Olympic flag (this is probably going a bit too far).
  9. In 1984 there was the Olympic Games in Los Angeles. All of the world's media would have been focused on Los Angeles. Does anyone know if there was any demonstration regarding the Sikh Genocide in front of the media in Los Angeles? I tried searching on Google but found nothing.
  10. Compare this remembrance to the D-Day landing remembrance also happening today. No fighting in France, but fighting in Amritsar. It's just crazy.
  11. This is a day of remembrance. There should be a 1 minute silence to reflect on what happened. All Sikhs around the world should stop what they are doing for 1 minute for remembrance. These people are idiots and bring shame on the Panth. How can we move forward with this attitude?
  12. The way I see it is that Vaheguru created the deh in which he manifested his jyot and shabad. Then it is the jyot and shabad that is transferred from deh to deh into SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI MAHARAJ. The Khalsa Panth (GURU PANTH) was created to carry out the Rehat of the Guru. Like I said earlier Sri GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI tells us: BANI GURU, GURU HAI BANI, VICH BANI AMRIT SARE. When one takes Amrit from GURU JI, they become one with the bani. It is still the BANI that is Guru at the end of the day. I know it is difficult to understand. It may seem that I am contradicting myself, but it is clear in my mind. If you have any further difficulties understanding it, I urge you to think deeply in Shabad Guru. Just keep the shabad in your mind and all will be clear. Bhul Chuk Maaf
  13. YES Guru Khalsa is physical, BUT it has no caste. Guru is Khalsa and Khalsa is Guru. Guru is the Shabad and Khalsa lives the Shabad. KHALSA MERO ROOP KHAI KHAS, KHALSE MEIN HOON KARO NIVAS.
  14. YES of course I believe in GURU GRANTH & GURU PANTH. What is Guru Granth? It is the ETERNAL GURU SHABAD. What is Guru Panth? It is the KHALSA. What is the Khalsa? One becomes a Khalsa when totall and unequivocally submitting mind, body and soul to SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI MAHARAJ, and living according to Guru Ji's Rehat. This process begins when one takes Amrit in and Amrit Sanchar. When one submits totally and unequivocally to SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI MAHARAJ and lives according to Guru Ji's they lose their caste. They become Khalsa pure and simple. This is what is meant by KHALSA MERO ROOP HAI KHAS. Guru Ji has NO CASTE and NOR DOES KHALSA. This is how we get GURU GRANTH AND GURU PANTH.
  15. Yes, but Guru is Light of Vaheguru and NOT a body. There has never been Deh Dhari Gurus. Guru Nanak Dev Ji through to Guru Gobind Singh Ji was the shabad. Sikhi believes and always has believed in Shabad Guru. BANI GURU, GURU HAI BANI, VICH BANI AMRIT SARE. These Clans are into which Vaheguru decided that his jyot would come. Vaheguru's Jyot came into the body of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji who was Avtar in the Bedi CLAN. He had to come into a clan to spread his message, BUT it is His Shabad that is GURU NOT HIS BODY. This is why Guru Ji is separate from CASTE because GURU IS THE SHABAD AND THE JYOT OF VAHEGURU. Do Bedis or Sodhis have a special connection to Guru Ji? and are Sodhi's or Bedi's above all others because of this connection? NO because GURU IS THE SHABAD. The Bodies that the SHABAD Guru was in married NOT based on caste but who Vaheguru chose for them. We must be clear in our minds that the GURU IS THE ETERNAL SHABAD AND JYOT OF VAHEGURU. It feels that we are disrespecting Guru Ji when we link them to a caste. It just doesn't feel right.
  16. We live in a celebrity world, and of all the celebrities we see on the tv and in movies how many are Amritdhari Singhs with flowing beards? Guys looking like girls is becoming the norm (very strange).
  17. Sodhi and Bedi are clan names into which Guru Ji's Jyot came. I don't think they are castes. Maybe someone can confirm if they are castes, because I always thought caste was related to job. Such as: Jatt = farmer, Gumiyar = potter, Tarkhan = carpenter, Chumar = cobbler and so on.
  18. Veer Ji, VJKK VJKF, Please can you provide what caste Guru Ji says they are in, because since Guru Ji and Vaheguru Ji are one and the same and Vaheguru is casteless then so is Guru Ji. What caste would you give Shabad Guru? This is the nearest Shabad I found: Pauree: The kings, emperors, rulers, lords, nobles and chiefs, are all created by the Lord. Whatever the Lord causes them to do, they do; they are all beggars, dependent on the Lord. Such is God, the Lord of all; He is on the True Guru's side. All castes and social classes, the four sources of creation, and the whole universe are slaves of the True Guru; God makes them work for Him. See the glorious greatness of serving the Lord, O Saints of the Lord; He has conquered and driven all the enemies and evil-doers out of the body-village. The Lord, Har, Har, is Merciful to His humble devotees; granting His Grace, the Lord Himself protects and preserves them. ||6|| (SRI GURU AMARDAS JI MAHARAJ) Bhul Chuk Maaf, VJKK VJKF
  20. This question of did the Gurus marry outside caste is strange because Guru Ji isn't a body and has never been. Guru Ji is, has always been and will always be, the divine Jot of Vaheguru, therefore Guru Ji is outside caste. It is this Jot that is present in Shabad Guru, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. People keep tying Guru Ji down to worldly things. Yes Guru Jot was present in 10 bodies from Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji to Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, and that they lived exampled lives that we should aim to emulate. Guru Ji is outside caste and has no caste. Guru Ji is Guru Ji simple as that.

    When you surrender yourself to the Guru then you remove me from yourself. Guru is everything you are nothing. You want to become one with Guru Ji. Netnem is not just something to be recited daily. Nitnem is to be recited and understood because Nitnem tells us how to live properly in order to break free the wall of sin and achieve Mukti (Salvation). As the 1st Pauri in Jap Ji Sahib asks the question, How do I break free of the wall of sin all around me?, staying quiet doesn't work, staying hungry doesn't work, keep taking a bath doesn't work; so what is the answer? Guru Ji says accept and live according to Waheguru Ji's Hukkam. Each pauri systematically advises you and guides you towards achieving Mukti. My friend my advice would be to study Jap Ji sahib. There are many translations and listening to Katha is good as well.
