  1. Maybe you need to spend sometime thinking about what sikhi is for you. Sometimes this creates a stronger foundation and gives purpose to what your doing and why ie why do nitnem, why wear kakkars, what is gurbani teaching us, what is life? A bit of soul searching, why you need a Guru, what does following his path do for you. It will help to have some good sikh sangat to help you along the way. Also start doing seva regularly. I'd say you should go before the Panj piyare at the next Amrit sanchar, whilst you realise your mistake and changed your ways as you say. You would benefit f
  2. Interesting to hear your views Singho. I recall the panj Piyare specifically stress the requirement for a kirpan on a gatra to be worn at all times ('gatray wali kirpan') and could not be on a dori or worn as a necklace etc, and not to be kept in kesh. They did say wearing additional shashters to this was fine. I think this had stuck in my mind as in the lead up to Amrit, due to work and wearing a kirpan under a shirt I started off with a gatra worn as normal under shirt but it would stick out. Then id put the gatra around both shoulders so the kirpan would neatly tuck under the ar
  3. Personally I beleive all the bhagats like bhagat kabir and sheikh fareed and many others who arent mentioned in gurbani all go to Sach Khand. It's not a sikh only venue. It's easy for ppl to manipulate a tuk of gurbani to sway it and justify their argument because gurbani is so deep and each tuk can have so many meanings. Whilst I dont have a shabad to hand I do think we need an open mind on this. I heard someone mention an anecdote in a katha that 'Nanak Naam Jahaj Hai', gursikhs (if truly on the path I suppose) travel on the path of Nanak which is like a plane, other paths may be
  4. Depending where you are go to your local Gurdwara. Or make a plan to visit a few. Some are open and you will find somewhere to stay in an emergency. Some are strict and closed during covid but others are open so you might have to try a few. Dw Guruji will show you the way. Dont worry about being homeless, I've been there and whilst it's tough and really when you hit rock bottom it's quite an experience and shape us . It's a sad reality tho that sometimes we hav to go through it. Its humbling and sometimes we have to bite ego and take help from family or people we havent been in tou
  5. So are you married to her now? Just unclear why your saying lonely and heartbroken is that due to the sangat situation? For the kurheit before you married, I would suggest you both go to the Amrit Sanchar and explain to the Panj Piyare. And follow any instruction given. With regards to sangat, do some volunteering or an activity you enjoy. Do seva wherever you can and you will find new sangat over time. The worlds a big place, if you didn't get on with some ppl it's no big deal move on. No ones 'scolding' or judging you here. It sounds like you made mistakes and you realise i
  6. I suppose the opinion is based solely on what you see with these physical eyes. Quantum physics suggest we see very little of what's around us with our eyes. What if theres more 'up there's and 'down there' that can be perceived by our eyes and further more that can be comprehended by our mind. Also I suppose our mind is shrouded by maya so can we really perceive what is the true reality? It's so complex both are true. But I do beleive Guruji is trying to disgard the idea of heaven as somewhere to meet God later, they taught us to achieve the union in this life. This is perhaps why
  7. Go see a therapist and let your wife use the kitchen in the house. And your mum, if she won't listen then not alot you can do about that....but if she cant hear then buy a hearing aid?
  8. Agreed. It's not black and white, theres a journey every soul is on. Some slip back others progresses and a few trips and falls along the way. Some progress internally in the sense they start reading paath and this brings them closer to eventually accepting the kakkars etc. Theres so many variations, it's just not right to criticise monay. Saints like Sant Jarnail Singh have the kamayie to address sangat in many ways. It doesn't mean if they were harsh/straight to the point in a speech then that gives full rule for Gursikhs to be harsh to others. We cant copy the saints. They are en
  9. Well said. We either have a comrade bias on here or some very naive sangat. I'm shocked how easily our own can get brainwashed by social media. I think the video below sums up things up well Giani Hapreet Singh (Akal Takhat Jathedar) also gave his verdict on the situation recently which explained things that are going on. I'll try and find again. End of the day we need Ekta now. Everyone to reunite. The Kisaan leaders handled this poorly.
  10. Well said bro. Reality of the situation is the sangat will always have differing opinions. From time to time we get trolls, confused ppl or simply ppl with too much time on their hands, and we have to deal with these in varying ways. Opening numerous threads with pointless questions can be annoying. Maybe some of these ppl need to be put on like a 2 week ban so they can find something more productive to do. I know sometimes it's annoying and no one wants to be taken for a fool. But theres alot who will have genuine questions or are reading posts so think what impression it give
  11. A couple of interesting quotes as other have mentioned. The Shabad is the Naad which is sewn into all creation. ਸਭਿ ਨਾਦ ਬੇਦ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ॥ Sabh Naadh Baedh Gurabaanee || Gurbani is the sound current of the Naad, the Vedas, everything. ਭੁਗਤਿ ਗਿਆਨੁ ਦਇਆ ਭੰਡਾਰਣਿ ਘਟਿ ਘਟਿ ਵਾਜਹਿ ਨਾਦ॥bhugat giaan da-i-aa bhaňdaaraṇ ghaṭ ghaṭ vaajahi naad.(For the divine-centred people) wisdom is the food, compassion is the distributor of this food, and recognition of the unstruck melody within every heart is the sound (naad). ਰਾਮਕਲੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ Raamakalee Mehalaa 5 ||
  12. Agreed, often our asking or questions or the search itself can be our own ego distracting us. All the answers are within us, through Guruji we can realise them. ਜੋ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੰਡੇ ਸੋਈ ਪਿੰਡੇ ਜੋ ਖੋਜੈ ਸੋ ਪਾਵੈ ॥ Jo Brehamanddae Soee Pinddae Jo Khojai So Paavai || The One who pervades the Universe also dwells in the body; whoever seeks Him, finds Him there. ਪੀਪਾ ਪ੍ਰਣਵੈ ਪਰਮ ਤਤੁ ਹੈ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਹੋਇ ਲਖਾਵੈ ॥੨॥੩॥ Peepaa Pranavai Param Thath Hai Sathigur Hoe Lakhaavai ||2||3|| Peepaa prays, the Lord is the supreme essence; He reveals Himself through the True Guru. ||2||3||
  13. Gurfateh Jee Does anyone have any experience of ordering from any online book stores based in India. Just wanted to know if they are reliable and if the books will actually be shipped out or is it risky? Any recommendations?
