  1. Was listening to Sant Ji's katha on youtube. Sant ji stated apart from the traditional raags, there is nothing wrong if Kirtan is sung in other NON - Raags set up by our Guru Ji's. His example: Think of poison in a bowl. Drinking the poison then blaming the bowl is silly. The poison is bad not the bowl. Likewise, we will never call a bowl Amrit once it contains Amrit init. Sameway it's not the raags being good / bad... it's WHAT we put into those raags. How many times Kirtan was sung but on a track of sum Bollywood tune? It is happening in Gurudwara by Raagis! Youtube also has Kaweshri jatha singing history of 1984, on Dr Dre's - Still Dre track. Rap instrumental/ Bolly tunes stand neutral. We can either put bad things and sing with our own remixes and lyrics... or we can recreate to sing Shabads of Gurbabi, kirtan and Sikh Prachaar over them.
  2. Suraj Prakash is History on our Gurus. The main Gurudwara in Leicester does katha on it 6 days a week. To get the answer very important to listen to WHOLE of Suraj Prakash.
  3. Well, also need to take into account what the Country 's law state. Allowed marriage at 16 - 17 WITH family consent and BOTH couple's consent. BOTH must be 16 -17! 18 plus no consent needed for marriage only both couples. Used to be 18 plus but nowadays with "Kids cleverness " they act like know it alls so I think it 16 plus?? Joking. Only paapi / kaami 18 plus gets married to minors below 18. Yes, every country has its own culture BUT COME ON! MAN.
  4. Best chance for you... India. As a bonus she won't complain about you still being with parents init? Unless her MIL starts getting on her nerves, kno wha am saying?
  5. YES! In UK a resident can tell a Person's hometown just by listening to their accent (North / Scotland, London, Sheffield or European etc) the same way, born n bred Indians will recognise if someone originally belongs from Majha, Malwa or Doaba. Since I been visiting India as a kid and even today I only knew of Doaba. I came to know about Majha and Malwa through my wife. She's from Ferozepur (Malwai). Their voices tends to be very soft, whereas Doaba's are deep. Then a brilliant minded person may go deeper and know whereabouts of a person... Like Ropar Region (Doaba) residents over their have asort of husky timid voice. I prefer my wife's side language though, their vocabulary is broad; Door, buha, gate and darwaza. To lean, Taasna, Dhoh. Wind, hawa, paun and has 2 other words just to name a few examples. Doaba sadly, only has one word in their vocab. Instead of learning from each other, each Region believes their language is correct and the others are wrong! Simply because "We read it in a book like that." We in the UK respect each others language (Wee means little in Scots). Or the matter of fact Wales has kept its Welsh (Cymru) language which is really amazing.
  6. Oh yes. Sikh women are definitely masculine.
  7. Va = Vasudev, He = Hri, Gu = Gobind and Roo = Ram (I think Ram)? These were the known Lord's name in the past jugs. Today it means from Darkness (Gu) to roo (light). Another meaning is Lord, take me from darkness and into light. Now... WHY is it Waheguru??? GOOD QUESTION! Am afraid IDK but my above answer may be some help.
  8. Brahmgianis are known for eating one meal a day. Simple daal with either one or half roti... thas once in 24 hours! Amazing... Unfortunately for normal folks, especially who work hard or exert unusual energy for work or own choice... u may end up dying from Orthorexia. EVEN if u eat 3 meals a day, FULL STOMACH. My sister was a victim of orthorexia. I would like to touch on her lifestyle. Aged 16 onwards she read books on healthy eating. Aged 18 plus she STOPPED eating things like fry food, chocolate n biscuits. She even stopped Prashad and langar at Gurudwara. Her diet consisted of raw vegetables, baajri roti with steamed broccoli or steamed pulses (daal) ONLY or if not roti then boliled rice. Which she cooked all by herself. And fruit once a day. No drinks, hot drinks only milk (once in a while) and pure tap water. So she was a vegan (milk was almond or oat). Pre 2021 she was incredibly strong and barely got tired. 7 days she would get up at 4 or 5am, ishnaan, paat, usual breakfast of fresh nuts n seeds if not milk or fruit... HOWEVER last year it all came crashing down on her. She lost weight n had almost zero strength to lift anything. She could barely sit!!! Then this year she passed a few months back. Maybe she got egoistic? Maybe she fell in the "Too much of anything is bad for u" category? Maybe she never rested but kept herself busy with work, walk n shopping for food??? Either way her diet backfired on her. Google Orthorexia to learn more symptoms, conditions etc. It's too late for my sis but hopefully you or yer loved ones don't have to go through it.
  9. Although you have a right to fear but really, there nothing to fear. Only last month this Sarb Soorat Singh (I mean me) was at Delhi airport and police / security treated me just like a normal person. On top their were LOADS of Singh / Singhnia going about their Business in n around the airport. As long as u have the correct papers and travel documents should be zero problem. Personally, this time round I didn't enjoy India much. It's cause staying at Tai / Chachi's (and dad too, I guess) house. Bibias argue in the kitchen, can drive over there so have to b reliant on cousin, women are concerned about themselves n their own fam over cooking... no love and no logistics to travel. I announced to my parents n wife next visit I will be at a hotel... What is the nearest city to Moga?? You will definitely find a hotel in that city... unless Moga is a City? Then there should b a hotel there... lol I heard of Moga but can't remember if it's closer to Amritsar or Hoshiarpur? Anyways... You definitely will need a lawyer for this job. There may be rip offs but u will have to judge n haggle(?) Good luck.
  10. I returned back Monday from Punjab. I enquired myself about Amritpal Singh Ji. He's in Anandpur Sahib but am sure other sources will know better / he may have moved by then. He married a UK girl so will be interesting for us... IF he decides to reside in UK.
  11. WJKKWJKF Sangat ji, what're your views on a Surgeon / Doctor taking off their kara and putting it in their pockets? And other workplace with no jewellery/ Kara strict policy?

  13. 8.4 lacs does exist. At end of OP's mentioned shabd the last verse is "Whoever remembers God before dying will get liberated." Property / house is ghost. "Mera baccha mera baccha" is pig. Also "Kach pkai authe paii, Nanak keha jape jaii" (unripe or riped souls are only decided in the Lord's court, where the truth gets revealed)... not we humans deciding "that person was a mona he gets hell" or "that sevadar is in Akaal Purkh's charna)... That sewadarr's soul can be trapped in the 4.2 lacs joon (underwater species) for all we know! Also I believe it is possible the 8.4 lac doesn't necessarily last long as it sounds... rats survival rate is 6 months, common house fly 2 weeks (max)... bigger animals last for no more than 20 human years. It is also possible that the soul doesn't necessarily go through ALL 8.4 lacs but can be ANY 8.4 (unless of course, Gurbani specifies the soul transmigrates through ALL 8.4 LACS specifically)... that means we go from gandhii nalii ka keda all the way to a... soul trapped in a mountain(?) Or even an Elephant... But even then I'd estimate it will be not for 100's of years as it appears. But of course it's all my opinion. If we do go thru ALL the 8.4lacs we must be extremely unlucky souls. And why stop there? Wha about a person born deaf, blind n mute??? I believe their next life must be human again... isn't it unfair they get 8.4 lacs / hell straight after???
  14. The missionaries trying to convince you that "jooni" means stage of life is as if you went to the electronics store to buy a television and the salesman tried to sell you binoculars because you can also see (vision) far (tele) with a binocular. It's just such a stretch. Lol
  15. Sangat Jio, Bhai Amritpal Singh Khalsa Ji will be doing Prem Panda start route Takht Sahib (Amritsar) starting on 23rd November. Route is as follows: Takht Sahib Amritsar, Jandiala, Baba Bakala, Kadoor Sahib, Goindwal Sahib, Sultanpur Lodhi, Kapurthala, Kartarpur, Jalandhar, Phagwara, Bhairam, Nwa Shaer, Balachaur, Ropar and ends at Sri Anandpur Sahib. Amritpal Singh Ji is in politics and runs Waris Punjab de party. He has, so far, influenced many to take Pahul Khandeydhar Amrit and during his prachar 1000's have taken Amrit PER ONE CEREMONY!!!
  16. You could look up on Youtube how to make food. Or better, get Veg cookbook showing how to make what. Last year I moved out parents' house and started to make degh the Taksali Maryaad way. First time it was kacha (undercooked). Second time it had burning taste. Third time too much paani... took me weeks before getting it right but the key is, one recipe keep practicing it.
  17. Follow religion mind, body and soul is what I say no matter what Religion.
  18. It depends if those people followed that religion from heart, mind and soul. So Westerns into Christianity have they followed the Bible? Have they kept away from 7 deadly sins? If yes it's Heaven for them. Same goes to Hindus who believe. Have they observed all Religious days? Have they meditated on one selected God / sect? MOST IMPORTANT have they followed their path from mind, body n soul? If yes they are rewarded.
  19. On average, Majawale take naam from "Sants." They believe in Guru Granth Sahib and Sadh Sangat. If they're following a Dera Baba though no Amrit's taken but Naam is given to them (locked room, whispered in ear). On average Doabe will take Amrit and follow Code of Conduct as inscribed by our Gurus. Not too sure about Malwai. But Malwai and Majha is similar.
  20. Sangat Ji, According to you whas the best way of giving of desvand? With God's grace am thinking to start putting 10% towards charity from my monthly income. I could select charities and give away?? But too many problems there "The CEO is corrupt" or "Company uses donations on rock n roll" etc. Any good advise for that small first step?
  21. With Akaal Purakh's kirpa another sant sipahi is amongst us. Amritpal Singh. Thousands have gathered / do gather for Amrit after listening to his prachaars. Leader of Waris Punjab De party.
  22. Sangat Jio, I got married in Punjab in 2019. Wife came into UK end of 2019 and we have a house of our own since summer 2021. Before I was with parents. Been a year and since moving we couldn't be any happier. Parents do come and see us and our son who is 2.5 months. We live only 2 miles apart. Wife might work in the future and I earn minimum rate. With Kirpa and due to honest living everything is going well. Due to my mother's ruthless reputation in and even out the house like in society I took the step to move out. My wife was suffocating and I was being dragged down as well. End of 2020 we made plans t move out. In one year my wife and Ma have got closer and visits have increased (but of course, that distance thing is still there due t Ma's ruthless reputation). However we all have our own stories. What is YOUR Story? Are you with parents, rent or own home? Are you married or single? Later.
