  1. WJKK WJKF What do you guys do when you feel like you are losing faith in prayer, god etc Do you have phases where you just feel empty and so far
  2. India, majority of the people there already believe in reincarnation, karma, aatma, omnipresent god, devotional music (bhajans) They just need to be introduced to guru ji.

    What do you do when losing faith ?

    I'm going to read more bani. feel no relationship at all, just empty Im not going to do anything stupid, but i struggle to look at myself in the mirror, i looked at myself and thought why am i even keeping my kesh and dhari, im not gnna do anything stupid. But iv fallen real low if that thought came to my head. Thats how distant Must be looking at me and thinking how ungrateful i am gnna read more bani as reading bani is having a conversation with guru ji. and do proper simran.
  5. Its not just family and upbringing, it also depends a lot on the people that you grew up with and hang out with. If you basically grew up in a place like London surrounded by Pakis, Somalis and Arabs then that will start having a influence on you. People don't realize it but the area and people you grow up with will have a big influence on you and your choices. I'll admit it but a few years back when i was working full time in London from 1pm to 10pm and reaching home at midnight, because of the hours i spent more time interacting with people at work than i did out of work and everyone working there was Paki, Arab, Bengali etc i even ended up learning a few bengali and arabic words! Islam was a popular topic of convo. I was a clueless drunk mona and i actually ended up researching about Islam and wanting to learn more! im very ashamed to say that! They spoke about their religion a lot, and how the west is against them and how mohammed did scientific things over 1000 years ago and how Palestine is their holy land but the jews have taken it over and that they will get it back. They had a lot of unity, they had a lot of cultural differences but when it came to their faith they were all one and together. Its very easy to be drawn into all this when your ignorant and surrounded by them. I had a little wake up call when this Moroccan guy who grew up rough but then became "religious" asked me if i would consider islam! he then asked me if im Sikh or Hindu, i said Sikh, he then turned around and said "but sikhs are strong about their faith" he then said "inshallah you will one day" i had a little wake up call and was like this fvcker just tried converting me lol Its not just parents but people you grow up with or hang out with.
  6. Its fine to do so but if your young and single then there are chances where you both will fall for each other. If you keep the talks professional and work related then its fine, but when you start talking about other stuff then there are chances that you will start emotionally investing in each other. When you start making each other laugh etc then it could be heading a different direction lol keep it professional and don't let the conversations sway
  7. Whats it with the whole new appearance of bearded sikh men with dastars covered from head to toe and then sikh women sitting next to them half naked!? I dont get this modern/new sikh appearance isn't it confusing and conflicting or is it just me? whenever i see this in public it just doesn't make any sense, it just looks very odd. its like seeing a vicar wearing a robe with a half naked woman next to him, or a bearded muslim man with a topi with a half naked woman next to him. very odd modern Sikh male and Sikh female appearance is very odd, very muddled, scrambled
  8. I watched some of his videos a few years back when he only had around 50 subscribers on youtube, i thought he would end up creating a good channel with time. I dont like his videos, similar to people like sadhguru and yogi bajan stuff

    Public flogging in India

    Absolutely shameless and disgusting video. This is "modern" India. Don't be under the delusion that this doesn't happen in Punjab. Just shows how backwards society in that country is Modis Incredible India VID-20190602-WA0009.mp4

  13. Guru ji used modern weapons but used mostly swords. I believe this is because a time will come becauae people will again fighting with swords and horses. That's why guru ji gave us shastars and not guns. But yes sikhs in the past used modern weapons for their time like mai bhago

    Is Chaadra an 'un-sikh' garment ?

    Your the first iv heard say that, perhaps its just how you see it? And plus the people your talking about are wearing costumes and are dressed up. I'm talking about actual Indians in india who wear that on a daily basis like the photos posted I'm not talking about costumes. Iv seen my sirlankan neighbour wearing one when washing his car seen Bengalis in my area wearing it.
  15. This b@stard used to make Sikh women drink his urine. He was eventually blown up with a bomb which was plotted by bhai Jugraj Singh (toofan). Iv read how they actually swept his remains up with a broom! unsurprisingly hes listed on the Punjab police website as a shaheed/martyr

    Kharkoo singhs wearing chadra. Chadra is what rural folks in India have been wearing for 1000s years. I really don't understand the sexu@l comments and suggestions in the comment section! They look like shers

    These probably look like skirts or dresses to you as well then? Or is it when a "pendu" or villager wears something without 2 legs that it looks gay ? Current stock of young Punjabi men look more gay than any of the guys in chadras in those pics.

    I have photos of my massis wedding from the early 70s and most the men were wearing chadars at the wedding too, obviously in those days there was no reception party but just anand karaj. Some of them are wearing those checked coats/blazers on top of their kurta. My nana was only 37 at my massis wedding! Massi was only 17. My nani is wearing pyjami at the wedding, that probably was the fashion back then? But she's got her face covered with chunni LOL My nana gifted a horse in the dowry/daaj Completley different world!
  19. To, The President of India, Rashtrpati Bhavan, Delhi. Subject: Return of the award of Padam Shree against the in-human army action at Sri Darbar Sahib Sri Amritsar. Shriman ji, Sending the armed forces into Sri Darbar Sahib for military action has already produced countless painful results. As a result of this army action the Sikh world has been deeply hurt. You have seen how painful has been the effect of this army action on the Darshani Deodhi and the building of Sri Akal Takht. Army has perpetrated acts, which you could not have known. Up to September 9, 1984, I have been investigating what I have heard from the people. I have exercised much restraint and have not rushed to conclusions. I will relate some of the happenings (that I have investigated). 1. Army-men arrested a scripture reader of Sri Darbar Sahib along with his family. The entire family was not given either food or water for the whole day. Rifle butts were administered on the scripture reader’s hands the whole day. Another scripture reader of the shrine was given the same treatment until his hands were swollen. 2. The sangat in Darbar Sahib complex consisting of women, men and children has been fired upon (and killed) as the mosquitoes are wiped out with poisonous spray. 3. The pilgrims who had been arrested in Sri Darbar Sahib and Teja Singh Samundari Hall around 12 noon on Tuesday were given water by the Sikh army-men after thirty hours on Wednesday. The children’s eyes were popping out with thirst and their mothers tried to moist their lips with sweat. When some women asked for water for the children the army-men told them that the children would grow up and kill the army-men so why should they be given water? On Tuesday the small quantity of water that was given to the children had cigarettes thrown into it. They were told that this is the prasad of their Guru. Army-men smoked cigarettes in Teja Singh Samundari Hall and kept on blowing the smoke at the Sikhs. The treatment meted out to the Sikhs in the name of army action has deeply hurt the feelings of the Sikh world. Hands of the young pilgrims, arrested from Darbar Sahib, were tied with their turbans, their hair were untied and used to cover their eyes with. They were forced to kneel down on the hot marble floor and to walk around on their knees. Hands of the boys were tied behind them and they were shot through their foreheads. On the first of June 1984 the CRPF had commenced firing on Sri Darbar Sahib Amritsar. On the first of June before the arrival of the army, the CRPF had killed a scripture reader in attendance upon Guru Granth Sahib and the volume itself was shot at. After it was all over, the Sikh Reference Library and the Sikh Museum were set on fire out of enmity and in pursuance of predetermined action. On June 3, 1984, two Sikhs wearing yellow turbans and kirpans got off at Batala bus stand. They were asked by the army-men to take off their turbans. On their refusal to do so they were both shot dead. Another Nihang was shot at and killed near Gumtala jail because he had refused to surrender his kirpan. One Sikh in proper Sikh dress was standing on the roof of his house in an area of Amritsar called Kittas. Army-men killed him because he was wearing a yellow turban. On the third of July a black turbaned and kirpan-wearing young Sikh of about 25 years of age was walking past the Kitchlew traffic island. The army arrived, handcuffed and arrested him although nothing incriminating was found on his person. When army-men went to arrest the President of the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee Sardar Gurcharan Singh Tohra from Teja Singh Samundari Hall, one of them was smoking a cigarette. When Sardar Tohra asked him not to smoke (in the holy precincts), his reply was, “shut up old-man or I will shoot you dead. Tohra said ‘I am the President of this place’ upon which the army-men became quiet. Temple servants of Sri Darbar Sahib Muktsar, were made to lie face downwards in the circumambulatory path around the sacred tank and beaten mercilessly. As a result of this one of them died. All those boys who had taken amrit were pulled out of their homes in the villages and were beaten severely. I am compelled to observe that the army has displayed bankruptcy of character and has acted with hearts full of enmity and in a manner indicating that it wanted to wipe out the Sikhs. Young-men from villages have been troubled much after the army action. Apart from the truth depicted above, I have received information about such shameful incidents, to mention which is to violate the cultural norms. After hearing of and seeing such happenings, I reject and return to you the award of Padam Shree conferred upon me. Puran Singh

    That image you just described is can be seen up and down the country. In fact no one dresses like that in punjab anymore. Nothing "sexual" about chadar and kurta only a g@y would think like that. Chadar and gandasa is 100 times better than the skinny jeans and bright coloured fitted t shirts you see men wearing in Punjab these days with hair sprayed gold. Chadar/lungi is what men wore/where in India. While at hazur sahib I saw countless men wearing that in those areas. It's a indian thing not just Punjabi. My mothers nanke are from rural haryana and when she went there she told me she saw men walking around wearing chadars and holding axes in their hands, her relatives even had rifles in their house. I have old family photos from the 60s and 70s and most the men are wearing chadars and paghs with the larh thrown over the shoulder.
