  1. Vaaheguroo Jee Kaa Khaalsaa Vaaheguroo Jee Kee Fateh Hey Bro, I can understand that you must feel self concious at times, if not embarassed. I used to suffer from excessive underarm sweating, particualrly when I was going through puberty and it used to bother me. You may be suffering from hyperhidrosis, or you may just sweat a little and then when you feel it, you begin to panic or worry, causing you to sweat more. It's nothing to do with personal hygiene or lack of it, nor can it be solved through "scrubbing". I suggest you make a visit to Boots and purchase "Driclor". It's about £6.50 an
  2. Hey Man, Hope everything's ok. I just wanted to say that it's really great and refreshing that you want to learn more about the beautiful faith, that is Sikhee/Sikhism. I have a very similar background to you; as I was born outside of the Sikh faith and was raised in a Christian family. I'm a 21 year old white guy who first got into Sikhee about 9-10 years ago and I had the same feelings and concerns back then, as you have now. What do I do when I go into the Gurdwara? What if I offend someone? What if I don't understand something? Please be rest assured - you'll have a very beautiful and me
  3. To say white people are ridiculous is quite offensive phenjee. What is ridiculous is the american media, for misinforming the american people about who Sikhs are. They had ample opportunity after the atrocities of 9/11 to correct their mistake of labelling all muslims as terrorists as well as their mistake of constantly portraying all terrorists to have beards and turbans. Incidences such as this provide us with that window of opportunity to put misconcenceptions to rest, to answer questions and to show the West who Sikhs are.
  4. Jee, you shouldn't study at a university just because it has lots of Sikhs. The same can be said for people wanting to study at a university because it has lots of white people, brown people etc.

  6. I don't know why you worry when in the West you have the freedom and liberty to maintain your own distinct culture and language, something which is a rareity in other countries of the world. Because of this, there is no need to send children away or to have household rules of not speaking English - seems pretty extreme to me. People who grow up to be professional translators learn languages because of their general interest in language. Couple that with teaching children to be bilingual from an early age, your problem will be solved! So what if your child cannot speak fluent Panjabi by the tim
  7. No animal is being killed or maimed for companies to obtain and produce cholecalciferol for human consumption. Hence, it is fine Vaaheguroo Jee Kaa Khaalsaa Vaaheguroo Jee Kee Fateh!
  8. I am not one to make sweeping generalisations, one to make a point without any evidence to support my claim or one to say something completely ridiculous or considered to be "out there". Why would anyone do that in the first place? Whilst Sikhee is the definition of optimism, a few Sikhs are actually optimistic. Just look at this forum as a prime example. There's pessimism about our the "state" of our youth and the panth, about politics, about our sisters, our brothers, about Islam and "conversion" just to name a few examples. How about all the positives? About all the amazing things that
  9. People often say that out of the world faiths, it is Christians who are the most pessimistic due to the concept of eternal damnation looming over their heads, along with Original Sin - being born into sin, living in sin and possibly dying in sin. However, I think that title has been wrongly given and actually belongs to Sikhs. Never have I known a faith group to be so pessimistic about absolutely everything!

  11. Direspectful is an understatement! The whole jumping up and down and waving their arms kind of reminds me of when Moses came down from the mountain and found his followers dancing and cheering drunkenly around statue of a golden calf.
  12. Regarding the tributaries and the ocean comment, are you saying Christians, Muslims, Jews and Buddhists can't merge with God? I thought love was unconditional...not bound by any constraints? If a Christian feels the same love for God as a Sikh, why can the Sikh merge with God but the Christian cannot? What happened to all those amazing saints etc. before the time of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee? Did no one merge with God up until the birth of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee or up until 1699? Sikhee teaches us that fasting, idol worship and pilgrimages are pointless. It doesn't teach us that they are strictl
  13. All religions are equal yes. Just as the river has many tributaries leading to the same ocean, religions are those tributaries and God is the ocean. If they are not equal, then you could describe God as "evil". . baedh kathaeb kehahu math jhoot(h)ae jhoot(h)aa jo n bichaarai || Do not say that the Vedas, the Bible and the Koran are false. Those who do not contemplate them are false.
  14. Where has all this slandering of other faiths come from? Have we forgotten the message of our Guroos? Does the sweet Gurbaanee of the Sri Guroo Granth Sahib Jee fall onto deaf ears? Or do we simply choose to accept some of the teachings, but knowingly ignore the others. I do not see why people who decide to follow another faith should bother us as a panth, let alone as an individual. Whilst I do not agree with forced conversions of any type, if a man or a woman feels the same pyaar for God through Christianity, Islaam, Hinduism etc that a Sikh feels through Sikhee, then who are we to stop the
  15. Vaaheguroo Jee Kaa Khaalsaa Vaaheguroo Jee Kee Fateh! So there I was searching for tracks by Snatam Kaur Phenjee and what did I find... To say I am disgusted is an understatement!!!! Vaaheguroo!
