    Shouldn't have sold her rings, bro, regardless of whether they were melted and repurposed as a chain. Those were "hers." These small-minded third worlders don't need an excuse to cultivate grudges and create problems. You just gave her a gold-plated excuse to cause trouble and escalate every tiny issue into something bigger.

    Take the holiday to Punjab and take her with you. Let her stay for a few weeks or even a few months but you return after a few days. Don't call her. I mean it. See what happens.

    I think they meant that her mom sold her own rings to make her a chain.. Not selling her bahus rings.

    First of all, Im sorry that he is experiencing that. I would suggest to reccomend him to do seva at the gurdwara ji as a daily routine (like washing bhartans, jodheyan di seva etc). Im sure it will help. Tell him to practice Sri Sukhmani Sahib ji and Sri Nitnem Sahib ji daily.. Tell him to try at least, & make sure he does Ardas ji at the end of reading paath. Make sure he practices  daya, satya, (full) sucham, bhakti.  Bhull chuk maaf kijye!

    Salman celebrates ganesha day every year with huge celebrations. His mother is hindu. His step mother helen is Christian while his step mothers adopted daughter married a hindu 

    None of these Bollywood actors are religious   a lot of them marry outside their faith.

    I was surprised that Saif Ali Khans ex wife Amrita Singh(looked like a horse) is actually the neice of Sobha Singh the famous Sikh artist!  Who would of thought that a man who spent his entire life doing portraits of the gurus would have a neice who marries a muslim lol!

    Then again saif he doesn't associate himself with any religion or religious practices.

    Either way, smoke is smoke. In the older era, most homes were more open.. Unlike homes in the west withglass windows. Just use normal stick toof and open the window. Even one toof stick seems like so much for me during Canadian winters. I keep my rooms window open a bit no matter how cold it is outside, for fresh air. Just compare the indoor smell with outdoors. Whichever room I light a toof in, I open the window.

    Thats pretty much all I could find, I'm sorry.

    In terms of design first picture is nice looking at the simplicity the royal blue really gives it a nice look. Obviously you could adapt it to fit the room size and shape and also to your taste.

     Why not talk about something that exist?. That is like trying to brush something away and pretend it is not a issue in Sikhism. It is actually quite imformative. All Sikhs are considered low if you follow the caste system by hinduism. So its actually quite funny how Sikhs argue who is the best caste wgen we are all viewed as low according to the hindu system. 

    Just work on yourself, you cant control others. If someone believes in it then its their topic.

    Well I am a Brahmin origin Sikh. You dont come across many Brahmin Sikhs but a sizable group exists.

    But I dont believe in the caste system and dont consider the Brahmins the highest caste even though I am one.

    If you dont believe in the caste system, then dont talk about it everyday, especially on a Sikh Forum.

    I think its wrong that he's marrying a non amritdhari. When I was initiated into amrit, they told us to marry amritdhari(s) only. Ive heard if a married couple wants to become initiated into amrit, both have to go and get initiated and not just one. Think about the jhootha perspective too, Ive heard jhootha-ness of peoples can influence themselves. From which angle is she a Sikh anyways? Ive heard from someone that even Anand Karaj is only for amritdharis only too, since amritdhari(s) pledged to be faithful to Sikh Dharam.

    What is a sehajdhari Sikh anyways? I thought sehajdharis are Sikhs who have not been blessed with amrit, but also do not do the four maha bujjar kurehits. If someone does bujjar kurehits, then how are they sehajdhari?

    Deras offer security and and support. Many actualy give jobs to their followers, bring them out of poverty, pay for hospital bills and pay school fees. They also dont discriminate against dalits which is a reason why majority of their followers are dalits. They help poor families get their daughters married off and do mass weddings. So you can see why people resort to these places. There are many dera followers in the region my parents are from who some how are now more financially better now than they were before. 

    Deras also encourage their followers to get their daughters married into families who also believe in the same dera, this guarantees A future generation of devotees. 

    My parents are from doaba and sikhi is on the brink in doaba, close to extinction. Majority of the pinds here follow deras or other baba type places. In many pinds babas have started creeping in and are building their centres on the outskirts of the pinds. Pind gurdwaras are abandoned and on a good day have around 3 people in sangat listening to rehras and sohila sahib. 

    Deras are more successful than any christian and Islamic missionaries. It's amazing how influencal these places are.

    Which deras are you speaking about? Im from the same region, but my village mostly follows Hinduism rather than deras.

    There were no temples in vedic period in india. Vedic period ended 2600 yrs ago. The oldest hindu temples in india are 1500 yr old , long after Brahmins had successfully divided the society into 4 varnas and Shudras were not allowed inside. To justify this caste system , they quoted the "Purusha Suktam" from Rig veda mandala 10 , which BTW MANY hindu scholars themselves today believe is a later day creation and was inserted into rig veda with inferior motives. 

    What if some of the temples before were shaped as huts? How can someone be so sure to say there were no temples during the vedic period? Im sure that there were lavish royal castles from sat yug kings, where are they now? Point is, there probably were temple structures.

    I find it hilarious but also disheartening when Sikhs refuse to say "Diwali". Such a sad state of affairs and such a poisonous (and retarded) mindset.

    Hindus also celebrate Bandi Chhor...Sita Ji was released from captivity too. Nice parallel there for people to think about.

    Put that in your Diva and light it.

  12. Hii, basically people follow them, or join their group by sending a request and their posts will come up on your news page/feed.  Im in some groups with 400k+ members, they post pictures and people comment & like. Rarely do I ever see anyone arguing amongst eachother there. Sometimes you might get friend requests just by commenting.

    I got it from online. But it's from bhai Rama's autobiography. You can download the pdf online.   The things he saw are very similar to what my mum's friends mum experienced

    I noticed it is described similarly. But what is the meaning of Gossip (is it nindya)? I mean if people are Gossiping of someone around us, we should just leave? Sometimes when at someone elses house, we have to stay in their living rooms as guests and what if they start doing Gossip.. Then what should we do?

    & what about the unpaid amounts issue? Say someone innocently lost a friends (whom they are no longer in contact with & cant find) item, but theyve been forgiven by said friend.. Should they still payback? If so how..

    Bhai Rama Singhs experience of Hell:

    The Giani Ji said that in the time of Kalyug (dark age) the perfect Guru was the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaaj. Hearing this I was filled with joy that my search from the perfect Guru was over; that I had at last found the Guru I had been looking for and my innermost desire had been fulfilled. I returned home.

    That night I dreamt that the Jamdoots (angels of death) were taking my soul away to some destination. On the way I saw other souls been taken away too. They were being tortured by the jamdoots. We were in a long line with many souls in front of meand many followed behind, however my soul was not being tortured because I had recited God’s name.
    Where there is no mother, father, children, friends or brothers, O my mind there, only the Naam, the name of the Lord shall be with you as your help and support. Where there, only the Naam shall go along with you (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang : 264)
    As we walked along we passed a very dark area. In this darkness we saw some very frightful scenes. They were so terrifying that a person could easily faint from fright.
    “Where the path is difficult and the street is narrow, there the lord shall liberate you.”
    (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang : 996)
    As we went further we came to an extremely hot place. It felt as though there was fire burning under our feet. Then there was a hill which we were ordered to climb. Those whose souls were soiled, found it very difficult to climb this hill. The jamdoots beat them and forced them to climb the hill. Those with pure souls climbed the hill very easlity. According to the Hindu faith, it takes one year for the soul to reach the court of Dharamraj. My soul was traveling at a very fast speed. Along the way I say these scenes but they did not affect my soul directly.
    On the other side of the hill the court of Dharamraj where the good and bad deeds done in one’s lifetime are judged and reward or punishment meted out accordingly. Like a PC which enables immediate access to information, Dharamraj too is able look up the accounts of peoples deeds instantly. There was a lady standing in the line next to mine. Dharamraj said to her, “you have served saintly people. There are many pots of milk and a variety of food for you. Although, you have done good deeds you did not meditate on the Lords name. You will be reborn again as a human being. This time be sue to meditate on the lords name in order to retain salvation”. Another person turn came before Dharamraj said “although you were given a chance as a human being, you didn’t do any good deeds. You waisted your life doing evil deeds”. He told the jamdoots “Send this soul to hell and throw it back into the cycle of chawrasi lakh joon (8.4 million life forms).
    Next it was my turn. Dharamraj said to me, “You have recited bani meditated on the Lords name, but you mind is soiled from the sins in this life. You have to be sentenced for this. The jamdoots took me to a place where human souls were punished for their bad deeds. The place resembled an immigration area were at the airport people with different passports line up in different lanes. Here there was a seperate line for each bad deed. There was a signboard displayed on every lane. For a lustful person, there was a door to a fire chamber. Next there was a doorway for those who had listened to peoples gossip. They were punished by having red hot liquid iron poured into their ears. Liars had their tongues cut off. Thieves had their hands cut off. I could see the terrifying scenes from where I was standing. There was still a long line in front of me.
    Then the jamdoots brought me in front of the fire doorway and commanded me to go inside. I was terrified. They said that if I did not go in, they would beat my head with a heavy club. They pushed me in. It was the most dreadful place like a big pond. Many people were suffering there and screaming in agony. Nothing but cries of anguish could be heard. Nobody could think of food or water. The water in the pond was boiling like a volcano and small creatures were stinging people . The entire night passed in this dream. When it was time for me to get up and do my Paath of Sukhmani Sahib, my soul returned from hell into my body as I chanted “Aad Guray Nameh, Jugad Guray Nameh …” the first line of the bani, “I bow to the Greatest (Waheguru) Who is the source of all; I bow to the Guru who is through the ages…”. When I opened my eyes, I was seating and I had marks of insect stings all over my body. At this point I thanked God for blessing me and saving me from hell.
    It is a well-known fact that recommendation of an influential person works in our worldly affairs. If a person is jailed and a high ranking police officer calls in asking for the person’s release, the person is freed. The same is very true in our spiritual life. Guru Arjan Dev Ji Maharaj helped me out of hell. I thought to myself, “O’ lustful man! For a moment of sexual pleasure, see how much you had to suffer.”
    “O sexual desire, you lead the mortals to hell; you make them wonder in reincarnation through the countless species. You cheat the consciousness, and pervade the three three worlds. You destroy meditation, penance and virtue. But you give only shallow pleasure, while you make the mortals weak and unsteady; you pervade the high and the low. Your fear is dispelled in the Saadh Sangat, the company of the Holy, O Nanak, through the protection and support of the Lord”.
    (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Ang : 1358)
