  1. THIS Thanks my brother. I love how I can reach out to the sangat here.
  2. Brother. Its for work. I had to make changes to my life because I work in construction. I can't wear a bana, I have to wear pants, I have to wear safety boots. They won't let me in the site. I'm sure Guru ji would understand. What do you think ? BTW I do NOT wear a safety hat. Just my dumalla. Maybe I'll do the kamarkasa. Instead of the belt if thats any better. I have a long 14 inch kirpan I know what puratan singhs did. But at a construction site some of that attire is not allowed. You must know this. I think pleasing to my Guru is kirat karni. And still keeping
  3. The Kirpan is there to protect the poor and for self-defence. With patience and mercy, the Kirpan is to be used as a sword to destroy oppression. The Kirpan is to always be in a gatra and never to be removed from the body. The Kirpan protects us from hidden and seen enemies. The Kirpan is a weapon to protect the whole body, as a minimum it should be nine inches in length. Keeping the Kirpan in a Kangha, in the Kesh and putting it on a string around the neck like a Janeoo, are against the Rehat and forbidden. You are never to walk over your Kirpan or other weapons. When washin
  4. Yes I understand what you are saying But I don't think I can wear a bana at work site. Back in the days singhs in the past didn't wear safety boots either. So how can I give up safety boots and pants.... Bro Im Working kirat Karni.. I dont have to wear a construction hat...so I'm happy about that. Maybe one day these construction sites will let us wear a bana to work too So we can lose the pants I dunno
  5. My kirpan is 14 inches .... but there's an attachment for the belt where I can secure it so that its always with me at work. Tyar bar tyar and not in my dastaar. However when I go home I wear the gatra. Only work its in my sheath. Thanks for your input I really appreciate you
  6. I believe singhs in the past wore kirpans in kamarkasa like nihangs
  7. I'll be honest. And I know many will hate me for saying this. Do ardaas take it off until training is completed and the before you put it back on do ardaas again. I did this when I had to fly to Vancouver. Also your training martial arts. And yes occasionally you have to spar with others. It's not safe for your or the other fighter. I believe Guru ji wants us to learn martial arts and hand to hand combat. Therefore my Guru ji wont mind...in my opinion. I learned sikhi from basics of sikhi bhai jagraj singh. He said sikhi is practical. Can't stress over these things to
  8. Thank you. I really appreciate it. I will do it both ways. I'll use the sheath on my belt at work. And gatra around my waist at gym.
  9. I've posted this before to but got no answers. Please sangat ji. Need your opinion. I'm on construction. I sweat and gatra gets wet and smelly. Also its in the way sometimes. I have all my 5 KS on me at all times. But I would like to put my kirpan in a sheath, like a holster which the belt goes through. Or even clips on to my belt. I'm aware the gatra is not a kakaar, but obviously the kirpan is. What is your opinion? Just to be clear I wear my kirpan and gatra at home, sleep, shower, gurdwara, pretty much everywhere else.
  10. Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ke fateh Sangat ji, I have a question. Need your help. I work in construction, I sweat alot. My gatra over time gets very wet at work due to sweat. And it smells. I have to wash it quite often. So my question is, can I have a kirpan holster on my belt instead of the gatra(strap) going around my shoulder? Just for work. At home I out my gatra back on because obviously I'm not wearing my belt all the time. I figured it should be fine because the 5Ks is kirpan only and not the gatra. Im not sure this is why I'm here. Your advice will be gre
  11. Go for it. Good luck. You should be able to marry anyone you like. Be free. God will not punish you even if you marry a black or white person Trust me.
  12. I completed grade 9 in punjab. I was there a year and I learned it. Reading and writing Gurmukhi is actually easy Its not a hard language. But understanding Gurbani was difficult for me. I use to read the translations but now I'm learning from basics of sikhi channel on YouTube. I also brushed up on my Gurmukhi from the basics of sikhi channel as well. I recommend anyone who wants to learn check then out on YouTube
  13. Yes maybe your right. And now that I think of it it does kind of sound odd if I refer to my selfbas a gursikh lol thanks for saying something. I'm still new to the path every bit of advice helps.
  14. An Amritdhari is a Sikh who has taken Amrit and is initiated into the Khalsa. A GurSikh is a Sikh of the Guru, and is all ways Amritdhari. All GurSikhs are Amritdhari, but not all Amritdhari are GurSikh, because some "Amritdhari" Sikhs might have taken Amrit but don't follow it. All Sikhs should constantly strive to take Amrit and become true Sikhs of the Guru. The terms Gursikh and Amritdhari are usually used to refer to the same thing and can be interchangeable. I was a gursikh when I followed it. I fell off for a bit...remained Amritdhari and now am currently on my way to be a Gur
  15. I guess we were misinformed by our panj pyaarr at our amrit sanchaar. Thanks for your input though. Some would not agree with your opinion. Some might. But its just that, your opinion . And I'm glad your here to share it with us. According to Bhai jagraj singh anyone who gives there head and takes amrit is now guru da sikh. (A gursikh). He once said, "if your not gurus sikh then who's sikh are you?" Something to think about perhaps And I'm glad you found my journey interesting. I didn't mean to share it as a story. Just what I'm going thru. And in order to tell the sanga
  16. Thank you for messaging Dally singh. Yes you are absolutely right, agree with you 100%. Yes I do know Gurmukhi how to read it. But I don't understand the meaning yet. I'm relying on videos posted by Bhai jagraj singh from basics of sikhi to help me. The translations are not always correct I am very much grateful. I decided to remain a Gursikh. I feel great I have the spark light up within me again. Started doing nitnem, and some more Chaupai Sahib paat. Asking Guru ji to help me stay grounded. Keep me in sikhi. And to never fall of this path. Yes I agree and it do
  17. Thank you veer ji. Rab rakha Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ke fateh
  18. Waheguru! Thank you for sharing. And thank you for your support. I decided to stay as a Gursikh. This is my decision. Its nice to know my wife wanted me too as well. She's very supportive and didn't want me to leave sikhi. Guru jis kirpa I'm starting my nitnem again and simran. *DELETED* Anyways. Just wanted to say thanks again. For your help Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ke fateh
  19. Thank you for replying. Its nice we can turn to the Sat sangat for support and still stay anonymous. This site is helping our kaum. Its hard to talk about my personal life with sangat at the gurdwara. I feel comfortable staying anonymous. Gupt Sangat has provided that for me and probably many others. Sat Sangat is Guru panth. Reading all the advice from this forum from you and many others to me is the support I needed and I'm glad I can turn to the Guru panth in this time of need. Thank you sister. I will look into a vegetarian diet soon. I think I need to hire a dietitian th
  20. Hello sister. Just wanted to say thanks to you and everyone else on this thread for all their support. However I had a talk with my wife and son. My wife really wants me to stay amritdhari. She likes it. My son does not want me to cut my hair. But its about how I feel. And I think your right sister. In the time of need i turned to sikhi for guidance and support. And Guru ji gave me my life back plus soo soo soo much more. And its wrong for me to leave once I'm comfortable. I decided to stay a gursikh and try to keep my nitnem. I still eat meat though .... t
  21. He's joining the democratic USA army. Not the indian hindu army fascists. Relax. It's his life. He lives in the US let him serve his country. It's a beautiful country we have more rights in Canada and USA than we ever will in india hindu land. We should appreciate what USA and Canada did for our Kaum. Its fair here. With hard work we get far and can accomplish alot for our kaum. In india its not like that. We are always stuck in the mud their. So we should fight to protect these lands. Protect North America. Waheguru bless America
