  1. Overall it’s about respecting the 5ks (as a gift from the Guru). So think we should try keep them in best condition we can
  2. Agree Ardas should include offering thanks to Guru Ji for giving us kes. By doing agan bhet we are ‘returning’ our kes to Guru Ji
  3. It’s not ideal, put it that way. They are cheap so might as well replace them if they break
  4. Sant Ji was before my time, I’m mid-20s
  5. Sant Attar Singh Ji Mastuana wale did bachan to Sant Attar Singh Ji Reru Sahib that we both became saints, but Gulab Singh (Sant Isher Singh's name before amrit) will become a saint and a king. There was never any shortage of anything at Rara sahib, or wherever Sant Isher Singh Ji went. Sant Ji had a 108 bead mala made of gold, when a poor farmer saw this he thought if I receive this I will be able to provide for my family. Reading what was on his mind, Sant Ji handed him the mala and continued walking. Wealth was present in Sant Ji's life but they remained detached from it. But actually Sant Ji was a King and Sant in their previous life too. One time they were doing Chaur Seva for Guru Maharaj (Btw Sant Ji often referred to SGGS Ji as Guru Maharaj). Another mahapurkh said to the sangat "raise your hand if you wish to have darshan of Raja Janak". Some raised their hands and the mahapurkh pointed at Sant Isher Singh Ji saying "this is Raja Janak Ji". Raja Janak was a great saint of their time, you are probably familiar with the sakhi of them ordering Dharam Raj to free everyone from hell as they couldn't bare to hear the screams. The young son of a family living in Delhi had an accident resulting in serious brain damage. The doctors said praying to God is your best hope. The parents left immediately for Rara Sahib and it was late night when they arrived. Their request to meet Sant Ji immediately was refused and they were given a room for the night to meet in the morning. After hearing their grievance, Sant Ji just did one bachan, "stop crying and keep faith in Guru Nanak. Now return immediately to your son". When the parents arrived at the hospital their son jumped off the bed hugged them and said "where have you been? I was waiting for you". The son's body was perfect. Sant Ji was athaa shakti de maalak, but also most humble. They ordered their driver to stop the car saying "there's a mahapurkh". Sant Ji got out the car to greet a very gupt mahapurkh. Their name was Baba Uttar Dev Ji, they walked around with just a sack tied around the waist, very few people knew they were a bharam giani. Sant Ji bowed down and were asked "Isher Singh are you just wearing a white chola or are you white from inside too?" Sant Ji put their hands together and said "I'm trying to become white from inside". Baba Ji hugged them and said "I was joking I know you are white inside". Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji once visited Rara Sahib and became occupied answering questions for the Singh's of Rara Sahib. Sant Isher Singh Ji quietly began dusting off the shoes of Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji with their pala (scarf). Sant Gurbachan Singh Ji immediately got up and pulled Sant Isher Singh up from the arms and said "what are you doing?" Sant Ji replied "Gursikha Ki Har Dhoor De Hum Paapi Bhi Gaat Paahein". Sant Ji once visited a poor village where the houses were made of straw. The sangat said in the hot weather our houses burn down but we can't afford anything more permanent. Sant Ji told the village to collectively do regular kirtan as one sangat. They said if you do this your straw houses will turn into mansions. And so the village became wealthy. Some Kirtan Singh's remember their whole life 'at this gurdwara I sung this shabad'. Before starting kirtan Sant Ji would go into their dhiyaan to focus on Vaheguru and eliminate ego from the mind. After doing kirtan Sant Ji wouldn't even remember what kirtan they did or what sakhi they told. Kirtan for them was their bhagati. In fact some people would see 2 bodies of Sant Ji at the same time. One performing kirtan and the other sitting in Sangat as a listener. Sorry for the long reply. My hands will get tired typing, and your eyes tired reading, but still we won't find any limit to the greatness of His Holiness Sant Isher Singh Ji Maharaj
  6. When films are produced based on real stories they do get slightly changed. You are right politics can play influence on facts being changed. Also it is influenced by the director as a individual, what their beliefs are, the sources they've learnt history from. Literature is more reliable than films therefore for learning facts. Bibi Rajni was a devotee to God, and her faith in dealing with the hardship was rewarded. Even though it was a long time ago, the story continues to inspire people today which is rather amazing.
  7. Wow, I really am shocked! Someone has built a website where the sangat can pay money for an ardaas to be completed. They can even decide if they would like their 'contribution' read out in the ardaas. Very much a scam It's like holding an akhand paath where the Giani Ji reads and none of the family sit and listen. Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught us: ਆਪੇ ਬੀਜਿ ਆਪੇ ਹੀ ਖਾਹੁ ॥ Āpe bīj āpe hī kẖāhu. ~ Yourself put the effort in and yourself reap the benefits
  8. He could do some volunteering work - seeing people in worse situations will help give perspective to how the virus has affected others too. (And it looks good on a CV) You son sounds very bright, once he gets busy with college he will get into a routine again
  9. A very big collection of e-books here: https://sikhbookclub.com You need to register but the books are free
  10. Beautiful visuals, very professional Some very high quality Youtube videos you have, carry on the great seva!
  11. Exercise is good, especially cardio like running
  12. Some excellent replies. Can I also contribute a scientific point of view? If kaam becomes a problem it's because too much energy is flowing into muladhara chakar. Where your energy goes it will manifest. The solution is to stop feeding the fire. Gur-shabad is powerful, it naturally takes your energy very high. So do mool mantar at least a few hours each day, listen to kirtan & katha do path & simran.
  13. There are some very high souls, like from the time of our Guru's, who left the body and went to sachkhand. They still have some remaining seva and when the Guru decides, they return to complete it. The way bhai sahib ji left this world - it caused a lot of people to waken up, realise life is short and they started following Sikhi When you connect with gurbani you are literally surrounded by things.
  14. The purpose of being in this human body right now is to meet god. So simran, katha, kirtan, sadh-sangat these should be part of your routine to try and realise this purpose. Apart from that this is your life, you decide what you want to dedicate your time to doing. Steve Jobs said the following: "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it." Apart from that just be a nice person. I'm young and I promised myself whatever I do in life, I don't want to hurt other people.
