    as in the panj piaray created by Guru Gobind Singh weren't in these jatha things we have now. (again, not following maryada lolz)
  2. Instead of converting, please grow into sikhi. Learn gurmukhi and do simran. Also it will be easy to memorise mool mantar and even some pauris of Japji. This will grow you as a sikh instead of converting to just a label.
  3. Please read more Japji Sahib so you can understand more about the different spiritual khands as well (these are described near the end of the paat).
  4. I can tell you what is in the Buddha Dal gutka as from the banis I read yesterday ( I haven't finished full nitnem today, been at work and trying to finish using headphones, also terrible at waking at amritvela): Japji Sahib Shabad Hazare Jaap Sahib Shabad Hazare patshahi 10 Twa Parsad Swaiye Twa Parsad Swaiye - Deenan ke pratipal Akal Ustat Chaupai - Pranvo Aad Ekankara ... Chaupai Sahib (long version) Anand Sahib Chandi Charitar Ustat Chandi Di Vaar Uggardanti Shastar Naam Maala Evening Sodar Rehraas (Sampooran) Aarti Aarta (long) - Lop Chandika Night Rakhiya de shabad and Keertan Sohila (I forget the order because I normally don't use the gutka for my sleeping paat and normally listen to a slightly different version by Baba Nihal Singh) And hopefully someone can explain and expand this and add any or subtract banis according to maryada.

    Panj piaray that wear bana for show and never trained in their shastar, yeh I don't see the point in trying to go to 'Singhs' who don't really follow maryada to the level of being called a panj piyara that wears bana!
  6. We should only help raagis who do gurmat sangeet in Raag. Those who play harmonium we should not even give them anything because giving money promotes this non gurmat instrument. Instead we should pay to open academies which can teach the raagis to play the correct instruments and use correct raags. Otherwsie, by paying harmonium players, we are only shooting ourselves in the foot. If you watch one of Bhai Jagraj Singh's videos, he mentions that gurdwaras get cheap sewadaars that can do everything, and are just taught basic harmonium playing, I guess having a proper raagi would hurt the business aspect of running a gurdwara!!! ( I think it was one of the WhyGuru course videos about keertan)
  7. On days you cannot read paat, why not get some headphones and listen to paat instead? That will not disturb your roommate. I have different playlists setup for myself on Youtube and Music players depending on which shift I am going to at work, or for other circumstances. If you have time, this will give you an opportunity to listen nitnem in proper raag, Baru Sahib Anahad Bani Jatha currently have some nitnem banis sung in raag tanti saaj gurmat sangeet on Youtube.
  8. Tell your husband controlling krodh is also part of gurmat, maybe do some gurbani khoj?
  9. which channels do Hajoor Sahib telecast these days? Please let me know, I am going to try and get it on Kodi.
  10. I just listen to whatever is playing on the radio. Usually BBC Asian Network, might not be paying attention. I am trying to get into listening to Raag music, especially Raag Keertan. IT's never playing in the gurdwara so have to listen to it at home or in the car. Also found some Rabab music on Youtube yesterday, it actually sounds similar to 80s and 90s bhangra music!
  11. How do I save this thread to view later, do these types of forums have this functionality?
  12. can we have more info on this?
  13. I am in a similar situation and thinking about doing the same. And you might as well learn HTML as well, it's very easy to learn!
  14. very interesting read. But wow, this thread was started in 2007? A decade ago!
  15. Really want to help with this. There are those with kesh who do kabaddi, also desi wrestling, and shastar vidiya martial arts. There's Singhs who shastarvidiya as well as another lot called Art of Elusive Fighting. Please get in touch with all these groups of various martial arts. There might be someone on this forum, and also some other forums as well which can help. Sikhawareness and Reddit sikh forums will have Singhs on who participate in martial arts with kesh.
  16. yes a combination. the aim for an amrit dhari is not to just be a sehajdhari sikh, shastar is a very important part as well.
  17. Well the 1st 5 Gurus also had the tradition of charan-amrit. If you want charan-amrit then that is fine. But please don't insult those who follow all 10 Gurus instead of first 5. Guru Gobind Singh has made it mandatory to practise shastar as well as nitnem. If you prefer pakhandis that dress up then that is up-to-you.
  18. Wait, so you are saying it does not matter how much the panj follow rehit of Guru Sahib, is this the best example for amrit dharis? Should amrit dharis not lead an example of how to lead gursikh lifestyle? And here you are saying we should not worry about shastar vidiya? Then why take khanday dee pahul from such panj, why not just take charan amrit if it is only about bhagati and naam? Remember, for a gursikh shastar abiyaas is also bhagti. To separate this is not possible. This is more like becoming a sehajdhari sikh!
  19. I agree. Also find a panj piyaraay that follow maryada and know how to use shastar, and don't just play dress up with bana which many do unfortunately! I heard that some panj piyaraay give a special naam dhrir. Also, you're right, panj piaaray should not encourage khulla maas and instead should encourage jhatka and hunting as part of maryada, You had an objection yet you say the contrary statement that all panj follow same maryada??? This is an interesting take on this issue from Ranjit Singh. I don't agree with everything in this video, but somethings are true.
  20. to be honest, only Singhs who should really administer khanday dee pol is those who also have training with their shastar in addition to nitnem. What's the point of pakhand of playing dress-up bana panj piyaray?

    Halal food

    very good, much healthier than just refined wheat.
  22. I think this Youtube channel has a narrow viewpoint in sikhi, ie they only think within their sect and even praise their own sect members are gursikhs.
  23. there's also the aunties and girls doing sly drinking now at the family parties. Obviously, in the "ADVANCED" (advanced & modern in their mind, but totally not progressive) families the ladies drink openly, and of course dress a little "openly" as well LOL
  24. Lord Singh does not seem to understand the concept of nirguna-sarguna roop of Waheguru. But the whole statement of SGPC and SGPC-Akal Takht is a great one even though the parts about Dasam bani are unacceptable.
  25. BEcause drinking is look really down upon for women in most punjabi families, then there is a stigma which makes those women look like tramps as it kinda signifies that these women are out at night and go to other undesirable places, ie also not making them marriage material. I am sure they have exes to go with those glassys as well. End of the day it's parents fault for not looking after their children, letting them firr like kuttay billay
