  1. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! We don't "confess" because unlike other belief systems, we know that God knows everything anyways. All we can do is pray for guidance and support to help us overcome our issues and move on. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!

  3. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Yes, I know that, but that's the point of a metaphor: its not "real". Its a good way to describe a situation, so there's no reason to be shocked to call God a different gender because it doesn't fit with one specific metaphor. The thing also about metaphor is that it can change over time. Whereas in the past the husband wife metaphor depended greatly on the fact that the husband was generally "superior" and the wife basically "followed him around", now the metaphor falls apart a little bit with general acceptance (in the western world anywa
  4. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Guys, I hope you realize by saying there is a formal separate hell, you are contradicting gurbani as well! Our gurbani talks of two possibilites upon death: reincarnation or joining with Waheguroo. That is completely antithetical to "heaven or hell"... you cant have "hell" and reincarnation. And since in gurbani, we are explained that we can reach 'heaven' (Waheguroo) in this life, we can also reach 'hell' in this life... and that is by definition "karma" (you reap what you sow). No place with short red guys with pitchforks I'm afraid. Wah
  5. Herself? i dont get what ur tryin to say here... you callin god a 'her'? Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! God doesn't have male or female genitalia. So stop worrying about semantics. As for the original post, you need several points to bring yourself towards God, the three pillars: kirth karna, vandh chankna, and naam japna. Note that only one of the three involve patt/simran... the other two require you to serve humanity, volunteer, and work truthfully and hard. Always try to improve yourself! Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa!

  6. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! So I can't kill a cow... but everything else is fair game?? /sarcasm The current translation for those lines above (Sikhitothemax): If a Brahmin kills a cow or a female infant, and accepts the offerings of an evil person, he is cursed with the leprosy of curses and criticism; he is forever and ever filled with egotistical pride. In other words, it talks nothing of who to eat or not to eat from, but rather comments on people being hypocritical. Like if you call yourself a man of god, and then disobey all ur oaths to him, or accept "bad mo
  7. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Hell is metaphorical... and if you follow the metaphor, our life here and now is 'hell'. According to sikhi, you are either joined with God, or you are not. There isn't a time or place of judgment, but if you can join with God then obviously you "are in heaven", if you do not, then you are in the opposite situation! Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa!

  9. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fathe! Agree with Heera veerjee 100%. It is very much dependent on the character of the veer you're with... if he's willing to do whats right for you two and sikhi, then that reflects on him... and like Heera said, if he prefers his caste, then he doesn't deserve you. As to the comment a bit later wait "a few generations"... that's what they said 500 years ago when our gurus made us all equal. Doing whats right and carrying our Khalsa banner doesn't take generations or millennia... it happens right here, right now, with us. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa
  10. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Simple solution: get a legit copy of windows. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  11. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Veerjee, why would you go from one extreme (long hair) to the other (trim it down)? Use some hair spray / gel to fix it up a little, and by that I dont mean plaster it to your face, but do it with a more suttle natural look. It'll make your dhari a little easier to handle, and frankly you get what it sounds like you're trying to accomplish withought breaking your amrit. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  12. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Actually , it doesn't say that at all does it? aagae aavath si(n)gh j paavai || vaahiguroo kee fathae bulaavai || That litlerally means when a Singh comes, say "Waheguroo's fateh" That hukam I dont believe was written by our gurus, nor put into the SGGS. A greeting is a greeting. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  13. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Stealin is stealin bro! Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  14. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! ooo... and i notice its North American, not just US Good thing too, I'm gonna join! Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  15. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Well the way I see it, Sikhi and science are the same thing... God made our universe and our biology. So no matter which way we approach the issue, we should get the same answer Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  16. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! I think this issue, like literally every single issue that comes up as a debate does not have an answer to YES or NO, but something in the middle. It would seem to me that since waheguru's jot is within every creature, plant or animal, rock or planetoid, that this comes down to a similar issue as to why sikhs (in general) don't eat meat: because its wrong to induce pain if it can be prevented (ie: by eating something without a central nervous system, like plants or fungi). Similarly, we lose diploid cells by the millions each day, as its sl
  17. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Well I agree with the point of the poll, but its worded kinda weird. Is Bhangra a part of sikhi? no Is Bhangra against sikhi? I'd argue no as well Its the classic culture vs. religion debate... sikhi as a religion is separate from the punjabi lifestyle culture. And in many ways, its the total opposite with the high rates of alcoholism, female fetocide, and stuff that is present in the "punjabi/desi culture". But just as "dhaal and roti" are cultural things that aren't against sikhi, I suspect that different forms of dance, such as bhangra
  18. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Good work, but I humbly submit it sends the wrong message. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  19. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! The problem is that you likely renamed all the files to the RAR type which hid the filetype. What you do is open up the folder that they are in (or any folder), goto Tools --> Folder options (If you are using vista, press the Alt Key to see the menu). Under view/advanced options (one of the tabs above) there is a checkbox for "hide extentions for known file types". Unselect this box and hit ok. You should be able to see all of the extentions to change them back to the way they were by selecting each file and pressing F2 (or rename). You c
  20. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Questioning everything is not a bad thing. Read any sakhi... 1. Guru Does something 2. Someone asks why 3. We learn and become better people. That's why we are sikhs... students... not blind followers of random sants who tell us do this or go to hell!!! Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  21. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Its because of the brown mentality that if something is more expensive, then it must be better. Since milk was considered "very special" in good old india, and expensive, using milk signified having more respect, because obviously the more expensive thing must be better. I await the day when we move up from milk --> dehi --> ice cream. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  22. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Thats awesome! Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  23. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! Gurbani provides a definition: Satgur bina hor kachee hai bani That basically means that without reference to God, all other songs/writing (bani) is false (kachee). Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
  24. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh! An interesting point V brought up: our own Guru Nanak displayed this when it came time... the hindus wanted to bury him, the muslims wanted to burn him. His response even after death: IT DOESNT MATTER! So whether you throw it in the garbage (to be buried) or keep it and burn it (cremate it), it makes no difference. Just do what you think you are comfortable with. Waheguroo jee ka Khalsa! Waheguroo jee kee Fateh!
