  1. reminds me of those hippy Sikhs who take their own GGS and perform interfaith weddings all over North America for their own agenda and think its perfectly fine as long as its outside the gurdwara. As Sikhs its our duty to make sure GGS is in good hands and not being misused at all times.
  2. I just want to wait and see how gurdwaras will be running in 20 years or so when the next generation step in like us. For now most gurdwaras committees are no different from masands. That doesn't mean mean youth can't do anything though we have to work our way around these committees to at least have a basic ground to help sangat. Like I mentioned counseling before. There for sure are good Gursikh bibis/phenjis out there who can help out as counselors for their own local sangat and trust me it can make a big difference. Here in America, sadly most gurdwaras have no what so support for sangat. I mean in UK you have guys have atleast couple organizations to support sangat in different areas but here its complete chaos. Punjabi parents of this generation more over care about education than religion as they don't care who their child marries as long as she is standing on her own feet and blah blah blah. Also in UK, you guys enough youth to stand up against interfaith weddings too from happening in gurdwara too but in America not even one has been avoided.
  3. We need Sikh counsellors in Gurdwaras. Granthis are supposed to play that part in Gurdwaras but sadly most are in for the money and nothing else to help out with sangat. In UK, there are Singhs from Gurdwaras who do some family support help for Sikh families as every gurdwara should be doing this all over the world. This will help solve the problems of girls leaving out and getting dishonored and so on and on...... its not a complete solution but a good start to solve this problem.
  4. You should try your best to do amritvels whether you wake up at 4 or 5 am or even earlier at midnight or even 1 do your nitnem and then go to sleep because sometimes school schedule can be hectic so any of those two ways can work out for getting your ninth/simran done during amritvela. Other than that when you are alone and feel having the lustful urge, you should start simran right away where you are no matter what. That will help you overcome your mind thinking about it at that very moment.
  5. Tighten your kacha veer ji its a difficult task to stop. From own experience, what helps with me that i can go without it for weeks by doing simran during amritvela and listening to kirtan/simran as much as I can especially if your on the laptop just listening will tune your mind off of during such activity. But I have to be honest the rush starts kicking in always after a week in and more simran is needed to be done in order for me to focus and not get distracted by lust its a tough task but with simran and ardaas it can be cut off for good. For advice, start off a fresh day with amritvela path and simran and for that whole day focus on positive vibes that take your mind off of lust. Once you achieve day 1, try to get in the same notion and it might not work right away it can take weeks or months but getting into that habit might help. I Heard a talk on Sikh2inspire about Kaam being a king of the court of the five vices which in a way I believe to be true . It seems to me the more books I read about Gursikh gems I can conclude some have mentioned kaam being the toughest vice to control for them of course due to them being celibate when talking about mahapurakhs. Back on topic, your not the only one going through this notion of fighting kaam, it'll affect you if you don't control yourself without doing simran your spirituality will fall apart. In other words, don't let kaam control you , it should be you controlling kaam in the end. do extra chapaui sahib path too
  6. Definitely contact Sikh Helpline as someone mentioned alreadt. Also, let us sangat know how everything goes if you followed any of the advice above.
  7. Too bad the Muslim clerics in Dubai force Sikhs to keep the Nishan Sahib inside the gurdwara and ban any katha....
  8. Pretty sure DDT dates back to Baba Deep Singh but the name changed though throughout time. Maybe I'm wrong though.
  9. No doubt Damdami Taksal has had pooran mahapurakhs in their lineage of jathedars and great contributors to the panth like Sant Gurbachan Singh, Sant Kartar Singh and so on. But you think Dhumma was selected by the Taksal themselves? In no way I want to do nindiya of Dhumma but one has to agree he isn't fit for the authority of the Taksal. Even to this day the jathedar spot is in confusion at the Taksal as Badal picks his own choice who will do work for him. So sadly I have to say Taksal is monitored by the gov. but hopefully in the future that changes. In my opinion I would want someone picked from sarbat khalsa that should happen at Akal Takht. I support anyone who isn't afraid of speaking for the Truth and standing up for the Guru's teachings and has a high jeevan and has a good reputation already in the panth. Now I don't mind at all if it is a Singh or Jathedar from Taksal or Buddha Dal or neither to be honest. Right now I would want Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala to be the Akal Takht jathedar who would be a big change for the Panth but that will never happen to be honest. He is a Taksali of course and I have no problem and he doesn't really associate himself with Dhumma as much as I know but I can tell you he is one of the only taksalis I really look up too from the 1970's and 1980's struggles who isn't quitting on getting justice. Now interestingly though, in the 90's Shaheed Gurdev Singh Kaunke was Akal Takht jathedar for a while and however he was picked though through the indian gov. agencies spying at Harmandar Sahib, I will never understand how but he did do a lot of parchar in short time and ended up shaheed.
  10. Truly enough that's what Sikhi has become in Punjab today sadly. Most of them are sellouts.
  11. No, I support Sant Jarnail Singh Ji, but what I am trying to say we are all part of the Khalsa and picking favorites of who's hands the Akal Takht should go to is risky. Akal Takht has superiority. Seriously we don't know how our jathedars are picked out these days, but most likely ones who do service of Badal. Right now to be completely honest today's Taksal is not what is was like in the 20th century. Dhumma is big sellout and a disgrace to the Taksal. Once all Indian politicans especially Punjab ones have their hands off of Sikh institutions which only can be done with the sword and not the pen and our Sikh leaders are chosen wisely depending on their jeevan not their service to politicans then I will have some hope. But on a serious note, Akal Takht needs to be in hands of the Khalsa again not pakhandi Sikh politican sellouts.
  12. Eh, I mean if it goes to either one you think the other will give alliance to them? Haumai is a spreading disease within our Panth and can even affect Singhs of either Taksal or Budha Dal it is risky in my opinion. Especially in the state of the two it will not be any good for the Panth. Sarbat Khalsa is the way to go in my opinion to decide the future..
  13. I think it can work out depending on the Muslims. Not all Muslims are stuck up and stick with their own kinds but many are like that unfortunately. They have a sense of superiority over others but not are like that again.
  14. female singing artists? lol that is something we aren't concerned about producing singing artists to be honest. There are women kirtanis(play the harmonium and sing religious hymns). Whitney Houston might have been a singer but where was she on the stance of spirituality?
  15. Its good to seek out help from online sangat as some members have given advice here for you. In my opinion, do an ardas and take a hukamnama for guidance by GGS. It feels like you want to be free as in having more freedom by letting your hair out and wearing makeup? I am kind of lost. I see that you are putting your eyes on today's modern trends of society where most women wear revealing clothes, makeup, drink, and go out clubbing. I am 18 and 1/2 years old and about to go to uni and as odd as it seems me being pretty good keeping rehit sometimes I have bad thoughts and it really makes me think. Also I have rarely good sangat here to so that puts me down also. But I feel where you're coming from. It is best to follow your Guru than the world's ways as the world and its affairs are all false and misleading to one's faith. Temptations are dreadful and can really change your mindset so its best to remain steadfast. Your not the only sister I bet who's going with this situation too. Keeping your trust in Guru will help you overcome tough times in life as your dealing with it now. I seriously suggest you to find a Sikh sister or a group of Amritdharis who can really reach to you and help you out personally. Like you said your the only amritdhari in your family and extended family so there is no one who can really understand what issues you are truly dealing with. So it is best possible to seek out help from local Sikh sangat perhaps Sikh Amritdharis?
  16. America won't do jack in my opinion. Don't depend on the UN to do anything either. Whats a few letters to Indian Gov. gonna do? Its up to Sikhs in Punjab to get together and make a plan to combat the oppression. We outsiders have a limited hand in helping with whats going on over there. Obama already gave a speech and nothing has changed.
  17. Same thinking as me, I believe that there are Truth seekers moreover agnostics you can say but who are iffy on their beliefs but might of have a spiritual experience without really following a specific way of life and later lead a religious life due to their own personal experience can be proof of something really happened to them To be honest, in the world today, people will make up stories here and there but those who do experience such things should keep it to themselves for their own sake and relationship with the Divine It really varies from person to person. Karma too plays a huge role from your previous lives in your present in connecting with the Divine For example Bhai Rama Singh from UK who wrote a book about coming into Sikhi from a Hindu background explained because of him being in Guru Gobind Singh's fauj and being a granthi his previous lives he reaped a lot of good and for him but it still took time for him to come into Sikhi during his life though. He started to connect with the Divine at a young age and was kind of a Truth seeker like we see a lot today. So in the end i would say it varies from person to person.
  18. religious experience perhaps can be a branch off of spiritual experience IMO
  19. True, I forgot to point out that we can't just wait for some leader to do something for the kaum its just us ordinary Sikhs to make the Panth progress and make sacrifices to help the Panth fight such problems as you mention. We Sikhs do ardaas for chardi kala of the panth but need to understand doing ardaas then just sitting isn't justifiable to Akal Purakh. So i definitely agree with you. We Sikhs today will be lucky if Akal Purakh blesses us Panth with a great Sikh leader but as the situation is right now today Sikhs have to be bent to help out with numerous problems surrounding us especially in our homeland. Khalsa Raj is coming no matter what but the question is how can we make it come quicker? In my opinion, the answer is to become a nitnemi, rehitvaan, and tyar bar tyar Sikh and make a change within our communities especially in our Panth.But sadly, I can say we are struggling especially in our homeland.
  20. Definitely agree with you, but Sikhs should believe Shaheed Singhs of the past will come back on Earth to establish Khalsa Raj and that includes Sant ji thats why everyone should look into shaheed sarovar sakhi that Gurbachan Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale experienced. He is definitely in chardi kala and will be back.
  21. I never actually knew that really hm.... and of course during Operation Bluestar several of so called Panthik supporters of Sant ji betrayed him in order to save their own lives and Badal wanted Sant ji dead beforehand too. Rehat is a must.
  22. Yeah I wonder what they tell these students just to do? Keep kesh thats all?! Really do we need future Badals and Makkars leading our Panth down the drain who also keep their hair but don't follow Sikhi at all? Or a future Akal Takht Jathedar who is under control and would rather follow worldly leaders advice instead of our Gurus. No, keeping kesh is not only the solution. One has to learn about Sikhi gurbani/ithiaas and have pyaar for the Guru so much that you will give your head a.k.a chak amrit and keep rehat and fight against oppression. Thats the kind of breed we need.
  23. Different meanings to the word lol but I meant to say that the members of the site bash pro-dasam granth people and such.
  24. lol i re-worded it wrong and meant the opposite of what i said woops.
