  1. OK 1986.....I'd like to know where the Ramgharias are doing gatka...maybe I'll find some associates that I could gather to finally sort out my local Ramgharia 'trim beard, starched pug, pot bellied, non-amritdhari' pardaan.
  2. I'm being provocative. I think it is really important, at this point in time for the small band of Khalsas who keep Ramgharia gurdwaras afloat with their seva, to come out and rebel big time against the serpent masands that run Ramgharia Gurdwaras. I'd like to see Ramgharia completely dropped from the name regular Amrit Sanchaars being held and Ramgharia Halls stopping booze and meat parties. I'd like to see the pure and spartan ideals of the khalsa take root in these gurdwaras, so that they truly honour the great gursikh puratan Khalsa fauji-Jassa Singh Ramgharia. Ramgharia means custodians of the castle of Waheguru......Ramgharia gurdwaras are fa, fa, far from this at this point in time and space. Why not ......? This is my specialty round. I have no intentions of doing Nindia......far from it. I'm merely making observations..........no harm in that whatsoever. Maybe I hail from the Ramgharia Misl and am trying to clean up it's act....I'll keep you guessing Veer Ji.
  3. WJKK WJKF Would value your comments on the following. 1. Why don't Ramgharia Gurdwaras hold regular Amrit Sanchars ? 2. Why do they believe in Baba Bishkarma ? 3. Why are there so many Ramgharia Halls (meat and booze halls)? 4. Why do they call themselves the Ramgharia Quam and not the Sikh Quam? 5. Why don't they do Gatka ? 6. Why don't they wear dumallas or wear the bana? 7. Why do they have starched pugs? 8 Why do they believe so much in sants? 9 Why don't Ramgharia women wear keskis? 10 Why are they allergic to the word 'Khalsistan' ? Gurfateh ?
  4. Dear Cyber Sangat Jee WJKK WJKF If I may, I'd like to share my personal experience of making the transformation from a mona to a keshadhari. I hope this of help to others who wish to tread the same path. I am a doctor and work in Northern England. Over the last 12 months, I have grown the hair on my head and face....yes I went through a 'hippy. appearance'- stage. About 4 weeks ago I circulated an e-mail at work, informing my colleagues that I'd be pitching up in a spiritual crown. I also attached a powerpoint presentation of eminent turban-wearing Sikhs and also attached a picture of myself wearing the crown at the end, so that they could see what I looked like, before turning up in the flesh. In essence, this provided them with a psychological immunisation. I must have received around 40-50 e-mails from colleagues, congratulating me on the impending change. When I turned up to work, people were very complimentary, saying things like'you look much better than before'. Yes-I was nervous and the stomach churnned on the first morning, when I nervously tied the crown and checked whether it looked neat and smart. On the way to work, I prayed from the core of my heart and pictured great sikhs in my mind, like bhai Taru Singh. The realisation dawned that my nervous predicament was peanuts, compared to what our our great, grand, mighty ancestors had to endure, the blood of whom flows in the veins of all Sikhs, regardless of appearance. Present situation....... Some people stare at work....but I just smile back. How does it feel? It feels absolutely marvellous to look different and to stand out from the crowd. It is the first time, I have felt comfortable, living in my skin in 25 years (since my hair cut). I have more energy and feel as if the Guru is standing on my head, protecting me. Yes I am still self conscious, but this is natural and will fade in time. Why did I make this change......for my 2 boys. Both are keshadhari (7 and 5). I had to be a role model for them, as well as desiring to progress spiritually and to take the 'internal bath'. The dastaar is like an advertsing billboard-it pulls people in and makes them ask questions. Dropping a few points about the dastaar and Sikhi has a massive impact on ones non-Sikh colleagues. This ripples out to others who will then be educated on the significane of the Sikh appearance. This leads to the darkness of ignorance being lifted. Ultimately....any mona out there reading this e-mail who wants to make the change...my ardaas is with you. It all starts from ardaas. Pray from the deepest recess of your heart, asking for 'Sikhi daan, Naam daan, Amrit di daat'. The Guru will give you the strength to make the transformation and will be with you, protecting you with his shield. My ardaas continues to be blessed with the 10th master's amrit...... Bhul Chuk Maak karna Ji. WJKK WJKF Sat Kartar
  5. Dear Cyber sangat jee WJKK WJKF Every Gurdwara Sahib is special because of the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. However, do any of you find that you resonate, or find immense peace of mind when you go to a certain gurdwara? It's just that when I go to GNNSJ Soho Road...the atmosphere is incredible. Kind regards Sat Kartar
  6. Does anyone know when the next UK AKJ amrit sanchaar is please? Many thanks WJKK WJKF
  7. Dear Cybersangat ji, Does anybody have an e-mail contact for GNNSJ sevadaars at Soho Road Gurdwara. I would like some info on when they hold Amrit Sanchaars there. Kind regards Sat Kartar
  8. At GNNSJ-do all 5 of the piaray administer amrit or just one of them? Do they teach naam dhrir / saas giraas techniques ? I'd really appreciate a response on this one-thanks in advance. WJKK WJKF
  9. Dear cybersangat ji-gurfateh ji If I receive amrit from the beloved 5, can I eat dhaal/sabji and roti cooked by my sehajdhari mum ? If I can't it could potentially drive a wedge between our relationship....? wjkk wjkf
  10. Dear cyber sangat ji. WJKK WJKF I am very confused as to where to go to receive amrit from the 5 piaray. I have been asking a lot of gursikhs.....some say AKJ is the only sanchaar to receive amrit from because all 5 administer amrit and naam drir.....some say GNNSJ.....some say Taksaal....some say just stick to your local Gurdwara (not otherwise specified). One Singh said 'you shouldn't shop around-just go to the next available one and receive it...amrit is pyaar and no specific technique of naam is mentioned in gurbaani'. I would very much appreciate your opinions on what I should do. Please can anyone offer me some wise, balanced advice. Kind regards Sat Kartar.
  11. WJKK WJKF Just doing some research... How many guys from East Africa or East African Sikh ancestry wear a dumalla ?
  12. wjkk wjkf gurfateh Singapore is a lovely place. We attended Silat Raod Gurdwara (not actually on Silat Road though). Beautiful Gurdwara; however, the toilets aren't good.....no toilet paper, smelly and wet floors caused by the water pipes that are fitted next to each toilet, to wash your back ends with-India style.... Otherwise have a great time and if you get the chance....do Night Safari, Juring Bird Park, The orchid garden, the cable car ride and Sentosa island. Sat Sri Akaal Ji
  13. Nice one lakhvir Singh Ji, Being from Nairobi, I guess you are referring to Gurdwara Sahibs prefixed by 'Ramgharia'. You may recall a post a few weeks ago by 'the spirit of Jassa Singh Ramgharia' that highlighted the beadbi that was occuring in Ramgharia Gurdwara Sahibs. Most Ramgharia committees are composed of trimmed bearded, overweight, starched dastar Kenyans , who like to drink alcohol, eat meat and couldn't care about rehat and nitnem. This trend has always surprised me because it was these very kenyans who started a revival of Sikhi in the Uk in the 1970s, and of course Baba Puran Singh Ji Kericho Wale did amazing prachaar work in the Uk to bring many back into the Khalsa fold. What did Baba Puran SIngh Ji think of Ramgharia as a prefix ?
  14. Dear Cyber Sangat Jee Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I’d really appreciate some ‘wise’ advice on the following dilemmas. I started keeping my kesh about a year ago and am drawing nearer to Sikhi to the point where now I feel that the Guru is slowly nudging me to receive Amrit from the beloved 5. However, my wife is not ready to make the Amrit commitment with me. 1. Can I receive Amrit from the beloved 5 if my wife is not ready to do so? Furthermore….which gurdwara or jatha do I approach? My intuition has always informed my inner core that I should go to Guru Nanak Nishkaam Sevak Jatha Gurdwara (GNNSJ) on Soho Road. When I go to this Gurughar I feel immense peace and tranquillity and my simran energy soars into my head. I am drawn to the Singhs and Singhnees with the white bana. I see many chardhi kala faces with glowing red complexions (lalee) immersed in ‘Naam’ at this Gurdwara. However, I’ve also heard that the only Jatha to take Amrit from is the AKJ, because the power that the AKJ beloved 5 have to impart ‘Naam Dhrir’ and to teach ‘Saas Garas’ simran techniques. Do the beloved 5 at GNNSJ impart ‘Naam Dhrir’ and teach ‘Saas Garas’ simran techniques ? Should I approach the chardhi kala singhs from both jathas and talk to them about this dilemma? Thanks for your time. Kind regards
  15. WJKK WJKF I am doing some serious research on the East African Sikh diaspora to the west and their jatha associations. Does anyone know of approximate figures as to how many of the East African Sikhs are associated with the AKJ, GNNSJ, Nanaksar, Damdami Taksaal, Nihungs etc. Would really appreciate your help. Kind regards WJKK WJKF
