  1. Hello everyone. I am a 36 year old male from Surrey Canada . Im married and I have two children. Both under 10. In 2015 to 2018 I was involved with an indo Canadian gang (Punjabi mafia). I ran the business side of it for my crew for a couple years with some help from a really close friend, who I no longer speak too. Overtime I also indulged in the same drugs I had stored for dealing. I became a cocaine addict, smoked weed, and drank liquor. I became very paranoid. I always looked over my shoulders. Never felt safe. I'm an <banned word filter activated> for putting my fami
  2. What skills/ knowledge should one have before taking Amrit? More in terms of daily responsibilities, respect of gurus saroop, how different programs and paath take place and are organised at gurudwara. What should every Sikh know?
  3. There is a video going around of a nihang Singh at the farmers protest in Delhi talking about how at some nihang Dal Amrit sanchars there are two baate of Amrit - from reading around apparently 'mazbhi Sikh" have to have a separate bata of Amrit from everyone else and also there are separate pangats in langar. Does anyone know what this is about?
  4. I heared from a nihang that in dal panth women can't take khande di pahul is that truth

    Kirpan Help

    I am really lost and I truly regretting a decision I made a few months back of no longer wearing a kirpan while I wear all my other kakkars. I took amrit at a young age and my love for sikhi is still strong and everything was fine until the past year around when I reached 17 to 19 years of age. I got mixed with the wrong crowd and lost track of my nitnem although i did not take part in any activity including doing drugs or kaam. Just a few month back out of shame I stopped wearing my kirpan since I felt guilty for not doing my nitnem while wearing my kirpan. It didn't sit well with me to portr
  6. Wjkk wjkf Sangat ji I need some advice and tips. I wish to take amrit and need some help.. My wife is not ready yet - can I still take it without her? Everyone I speak with recommends waiting for her and doing it together. What routine do you guys have? What time do you start nitnem in the morning, how do you fit it in with working out in the morning and getting kids ready for school and then going to work etc? Thank you
  7. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. I have taken Amrit 4.5 years back and tried to follow everything from Rehat Maryada. Before starting daily errands, I take a bath and do the Nitnem. I am a software engineer and as a part of my job, I have a hackathon organized in my company, wherein we are required to work for around 24 - 30 hours continuously. I won't be able to take bath on Sunday morning in the company but can do Nitnem in the cabin through my laptop/phone. I went through Rehat Maryada and it is clearly written there that I should take a bath before doing Nitnem.
  8. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh sangat. Right now I am 15 years old, my elder sister took amrit when she was 18. Maharaj blessed me with an understanding early so I really want to take amrit. In where I live, it's lockdown again till December. So during this lockdown, I have done an ardaas to be closer with guru maharaj ji. Maharaj does his kirpa and I wake up for amritvela almost every day. I refrain from eating meat as my mother does not cook meat in home as well. Maharaj has been doing great kirpa on paapi like me. I also have been practising to tie a dastaar though it's taking t

  10. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji kee fateh. I know of people who have taken Amrit that come from non gursikh families and after a number of years their parents or one parent takes Amrit. My question is do people do ardas to maharaj for their families to become amritdhari?

    Hey guys, So i am amrit shak and I want to know how I can undo it. I got amrit because i wanted a sense of belonging somewhere. But to be honest its been like 3 years and my love for prayers and gurudawra has probably decreased. I just dont enjoy it. I feel like its not me. My family is super religious and would probably kill me if they find out about this. I want piercings, hair cuts, I want to drink, and the list goes on. Of course I haven’t done any of that yet cause I feel bad but nowadays I just dont care about sihki that much. And is it possible to be a sikh and another religion at the

    WJKK WJKF Ji I am 12 years old I keep my rehit and wake up at 2-3 every day and do paat my parents won’t allow me to take Amrit I take hukamnama every day and it always says take Amrit but my parents don’t listen what should I do always show it to them but they don’t listen I keep my rehit I follow the rehit for Amrit
  13. My name wasn’t decided from taking hukamnama when born (cos my family didn’t follow sikhi then) So when I take amrit do I have to be given a new name? I mean first name cos I already use Singh to my surname
  14. I am going to be a father soon. Most of the people give their newborns a drop of honey as "gudti" and the saying is that the person who gives the child gudti passes on his nature qualities to the baby. I do not believe in that but it is a tradition and often there are funny conversation which goes on in families. My question is what is the gurmat maryada of it and does it have to be right away after the baby is born? I know some people make amrit and give choola when the baby arrives home from the hospital. So if I want to do something like that can we prepare the amrit in adva
  15. Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji ki Fateh. I am a 27 year old man living in India. I've born into a Hindu family, and have had a fondness of the Sikh religion in my initial days. Long story short, my fondness turned into devotion. A Singh suggested me to meditate on the Naam and read Japji Sahib when I wasn't doing a lot good in life mentally. Currently, I've been on it, and trying to live a life as much as per the Hukam of Dasam Pita. But I have a question, to all the Amritdhari Singh's, that how did they know it was time to get baptized ? And how is life going to be different for me i

    hi this boy I know has a big problem he told me and I don't know what to do, so basically he hasn't comb he's hair for a bit as he rushes when he ties he's dastaar as he just makes he's Bunga and didn't even brush it. and now he has massive knots and he wants to take when out but he's not sure what to do he's really stressed because they are not coming out as its such a big big knot like its most of he's hair its been so long , what should he do I think the only option is to cut it but he is amritari should he just leave it because he doesn't want to break Amrit by cutting hair but
  17. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Lets suppose that I am a "transgender Sikh" who was originally biologically male but now identify as a female. Lets assume that I receive "Khand Di Phaul", which is the official initiation into the Khalsa Panth. Would I then call myself a Singh or a Kaur? What does Gurbani or Rehat have to say on this?
  18. I tie a taksali dumala, but i am wondering what is the history behind it. Apparently the singhs in guru jis time used to wear nihang dumala and used used to wear chakars on them. When was the taksali dumala style made? who made it? is there a reason why taksalis wear this dumala?
  19. Vaheguroo ji ka khalsaa vaheguroo ji ki fatehh i recently came back from visiting hazoor sahib for the first time I feel ashamed and violated. i was just outside the takht complex with 20 other “gursikhs” who were all in their bana and wearing shastar they handed me a drink telling me it was rattani which I thought meant rose water however I took one sip and immediately realised this wasn’t rose water but was infact alcohol I questioned the “gursikh” who handed me it and he starting laughing and confirmed it was infact alcohol they were all drinking it and said this is true “

    Lazer Before Amrit

    I'm a keshdhari working towards the eventual goal of taking amrit. Ive seen alot (specically females) having lazer treatment done before taking amrit. i'm tempted to do the same, just so i don't remove any hair or have the urges to after taking amrit and commit a kerit. whats the sangat's opinions on lazer treatment before taking amrit? technically your not a gursikh yet, or amritdhari, or a khalsa. so why not right? seen plently of girls with issues having it done before amrit too and they're happier afterwards and full of confidence having not taken that step and then done the business.
  21. Vaheguroo Jee Kaa Khalsaa Vaheguroo Jee Kee Fateh!! Sadh sangat ji, I am looking for some direction/advice. I took Amrit at a young age but ended up doing kuraits such as drinking alcohol, smoking and cocaine at one stage. It was a tough time I was going through but no excuse as I still had love for Sikhi. Whilst doing this I never slaughtered my Kes in any way. I always had a deep feeling of guilt whilst doing the above and hid it from everyone (the activities and guilt). Later I met someone also Amritdaari and she had done a kurait as well. I did not disclose my kuraits a

    Amrit & Dastar

    Hi to all, So I have problem, maybe it's not even a problem, maybe it's my insecurities I don't know. So I'm ready to take Amrit 100%. I do my Paath, I don't remove no hair whatsoever and try to be a good human being in general. So I believe when I do take Amrit my head should be covered at all times . However I am having trouble with this. So I've been practicing the Dastar for many months now and it simply does not suit me. I know you are probably thinking I am silly for even writing this but it does not suit my face. I've also tried different styles. So i figured I
  23. the first time I took Amrit, I was 5 years old. After plenty of mistakes and growing I had taken it again at the age of 12 from pressure (not all of it was bad but some auntiyan were really urging me to just do it even though my family was warning me of all my responsibilities) and just pure desire to want it. It was at a camp and they really motivate you well. I kept it up for a while and ended up doing many wrongful things afterwards. I’ve plucked my eyebrows because I started getting insecure and ashamed, and just some of my facial hair in general after I got judgemental comments even from
