  1. Dear Sikhsangat. I've been in a terrible predicament for the past year, and it just seems to get worse every day. Before putting forth my question(s), I'd want to acknowledge a few significant facts: 1. I'm a Keshdari Singh and I only eat vegetarian food (I have not been baptized). 2. I pose a selfish enquiry (i.e., I have selfish motives). 3. Everything in my existence is unclear to me. I was raised in a typical family and have led a typical life. However, I'm now faced with a challenge that, if it's not fixed right away, would lead to my early and unavoidable demise. It has recently come to my attention that both scientists and clever people view religion as a coping strategy used by the weak or, more specifically, as a result of human weakness. I am unable to understand how some people with high IQs and exceptional talent can succeed in whatever they do without the aid of God. Mant do not refrain from swearing, wicked deeds, etc. This also holds true for evildoers who injure others, have killed countless people, yet continue to live peacefully.Genghis Khan, Stalin, Trump, and other tyrants are only a few examples (Castro, Pol pot). Why do these people choose not to learn about or remain in a relationship with God while continuing to live lives of wealth and intelligence that are above average? I'm not sure how a just deity could do something like this. Why do the powerful oppress the weak? My life has turned into a misery I can't even begin to describe. I feel as though I shouldn't be here. I frequently observe my peers doing dirty deeds and acting clever yet still get great grades. I'm just a hollow shell of the person I once was. But this one query has prevented me from making any progress whatsoever in life. My childhood is a dim memory of following the crowd and generally being stupid. Whenever I try to practise Sikhi, I see things like these and question whether a god actually exists. In life, I'm stumbling. Every corner will reveal surprises. I am an feeble person. Every endeavour I attempt in life—studying, using reasoning, etc.—fails. I'm not saying anything out of passion or in the heat of the moment, and I don't want to evoke sympathy or empathy, but because of my infantile nature, I might "end it all" since this life is intolerable and I can no longer go on living. This form is my only hope because the world is so incredibly overwhelming and terrible. I'll ask the same question again. Why would God give individuals a high IQ when he knows they won't believe in or obey him? Why wasn't I given this information if God is just and fair? This implies that there may not be a god and that life is unfair. Do the weak have anything to rely on? In life, everyone is intoxicated by something. I haven't been able to find anything that satisfies my need for an answer. I worry about unexpectedly leaving this existence.I feel out of place everywhere; some individuals enjoy learning, while some follow a philosophy, while others believe in something else entirely. What hope should I entertain? Please accept my sincere apologies. I appreciate your guidance. Help Khalsa ji if you can. My only hope is in you. I grew up in a normal household and have led a normal life. However, I am confronted with a problem that, if not resolved quickly, will result in my untimely and unavoidable death.It has recently come to my attention that scientists and intelligent people alike associate religion with the weak, or rather, as a coping mechanism due to human weakness. However, I cannot come to comprehend the fact that there are people who are very gifted with high IQ's who excel at everything without the need of God. They do not do simran, swear, do bad deeds, etc. This also applies to bad people who cause harm to others, have killed countless people, and yet continue to live in peace.Examples include, but are not limited to, Genghis Khan, Stalin, Trump, and dictators (Castro, Pol pot).Why is it that I have to learn about and stay with God but these people do not and still go on to live lives of riches and extraordinary IQ? I can't possibly fathom a just god doing this. Why do the strong trample on the weak? Every single day of my life has become a misery I cannot convey in words. I feel like I should not exist. I always see classmates doing the worst of the worst and still passing with high grades. I am merely an empty shill of what used to be a human being. But this one question has blocked me from progressing in life at all. My childhood is a distant memory consisting of me doing what others did and being stupid overall. Any time I try to follow Sikhi, I witness such events and wonder if there really is a god. I am flailing in life. Expect surprises at every turn.I am a degenerate. I always fail at everything in life; studies, logic, etc. I do not wish to draw pity nor empathy and am by no means saying anything based on emotions or the heat of the moment, but due to my childish nature, I may "end it all" as this life is unbearable and I can live no further. The world is so very daunting and terrifying that this form is my only hope. I will reiterate my question once more. Why does God provide people with a high IQ, knowing they are not going to believe or follow him? Why was I not provided with such knowledge if God is just and fair? This means that life is unfair and that there may be no god. Do the weak have anything to rely on? Everyone is drunk on something in life. Nothing has satisfied my desire for an answer to my question. I am afraid of suddenly leaving this world. I feel out of place everywhere, some people love studying, other adhere to a philosophy, some something, and others other things, what hope should I entertain? Please forgive me everything. Thank you for your help. Please help Khalsa ji. You are my only hope.

  3. Vaheguru ji ka kalsa Vaheguru Ji ki fateh I wanted to ask the panth to forgive me and give me guidance on a few different things and also I just want to tell the truth for once .I am a 16 year old mona but I have been into sikhi for about few years now through Guru jis kirpa. The problem is before i got into sikhi my cousins who are a few years older than me used to openly talk about very lustful things and because I was just a kid and didnt know any better the things they talked about rubbed onto me and I started to indulge into those types of things on the internet as well and i eventually realized this was wrong but it turned into a addiction.When i got into sikhi i tried to stop but eventually it would just relapse especially because I still hanged around those types of people.Then when i started to learn more about sikhi and my relatives and stuff found out they associated me as a religious person because I would often tell them to not do certain things as its against sikhi while I would be a paapi which made me feel horrible.I even tried swearing i would never do these things again which i lied.Now i am still having the same month or so streak then relapsing again and then when I do i make up excuses to not read bani like “oh i ate meat” or “ my hands are impure i cant touch a gutka.I also dont have any sangat or gursikh friends or people i know in my area to turn to. I hope what i said made sense. I just want to know what the sangat thinks i should do to make up for my mistakes and how to stay away from kaam also what i should do as i dont sit in the sadh sangat cuz i dont drive? and am i just making excuses for not reading bani or what?
  4. There is also a growing number of Punjabi in diaspora that are converting to Christianity. Wont be surprised if Punjab becomes majority Christian state within 5-10 years or less. Really sad and heartbreaking
  5. This is quite long so I really appreciate you for spending your time reading. Maybe this is just me getting things off my chest but then again its probably a cry for help i dont even know. Grew up keshdari but never knew anything about Sikhi till like feb2016, up until that point it was just about drinking, drugs, girls etc, and in Jan2016 i cut my kesh for the first time. I liked it because for once i felt no restriction, like i could now live a life thaf id only seen my friends living. But then I found out about sikhi in Feb2016 a month after i cut my hair and it absolutely changed my view on life because i had an experience doin simran and found a new way to get high off the bliss of knowing that there was something greater than everything i ever knew. I learnt gurmukhi, found sangat, learnt the 5 bania, re-enrolled in uni after getting kicked out the year before, went on my last party( drinkin) holiday with my mates in June2016 and in Aug2016 I took amrit (maybe this was rushed but it felt right). For the next year or so I done sangat of some serious nitnemy gursikhs, we would do amritvela together, go to programmes and do loads of paath and I quite enjoyed it. I would do sangat of sants and mahapursh and it was a completely new experience to the life i used to live, but the main thing is that inside i became someone filled with love and now i look back i would say quite humble and soft spoken. After that year or so of good times everything seemed to crumble for me. I felt like people became judgemental towards me and looked at me weird, sangat that i used to hang around with would just seem really awkward and i still to this day dont know why it felt like that. I was going through a lot at home aswell as my parents separated and there was loads of arguments and fights. The chardikala that i used to feel seemed like it was becoming a distant reality but i still tried to go to programmes and do my nitnem. On re-entering uni I made new friends and slowly stopped hanging around with the gursikhs i used to however i still stayed in touch with a couple of them that i didnt feel were judgemental towards me. This period of my life everything seemed to just spiral out of control tho. I started smoking weed again since i thought nihangs do weed lol and then that continued to spiral into an addiction with drugs, watchin porn, drinking again. And this has pretty much been the state of my life for the last 3 to 4 years. I've still held my faith in God and I know that God is always with me. Ive had countless periods in these years where ive quit everything and started doing my 5 bania again, but then i'll relapse, and then i'll cut down the nitnem to keep it consistent but then i'll relapse again, then i'll try doing loads of simran instead but then i'll relapse again and its just become an endless cycle of me trying to latch onto sikhi but then again i cant stop falling back into maya. Everytime i stop the drugs and get into a good nitnem cycle, i tell myself this is the last time but its not. I contemplated suicide quite a few times but then i realise that its stupid and will probably land me in narak quicker than i already am gona get there lol. Now im at a point where ive got a first class degree and finishing my masters in january, i work a good job, have tons of other projects that im working on to make me money and i would say in terms of a worldly perspective ive got a lot going for me. Sadly however, im spirtually corrupt and im ashamed to even go to the gurdwara, i meet with some sikh friends here and there but they think im just like them but really im a fraud whos doing all the stuff they could never imagine me doing. Today was the first time in a while i contemplated suicide so i thought it would be best to share a post here. Dont know what ill get from it but i just need to say this stuff. I try do simran still but the amount of bad karma ive probably built up by now i dont know what it will do for me, and even if i did try set up a schedule to consistently do my nitnem again, im almost certain i'll relapse because that seems to be the running trend of my life. Thank you to anyone who does comment and share their views on what ive wrote.
  6. Hello everyone, I had some questions about gurdwaras matrimonial services. I am 24 yr old sikh male living in UK, only recently started using the matrimonial services. My family are quite religious and well read in sikhi but I admit I am not ,however I love my religion and am essentially using the services as an extra channel in the hope of one day meeting someone. However, I'm a bit confused about something... when i see some of the things on the matrimonial lists; I feel like it kind of defeats the whole messages of our religion. For example, I read some of the preferences of the people on the matrimonial list and they write things like- I am jatt and only seeking jatt, I am doctor only seeking doctor, must be educated above masters. Isn't the whole point of our religion that we are all equal whether it is through caste, social status, social class, occupation etc? I mean I'm no expert but I believe sikhism was created because we didn't believe with the caste system in Hinduism however gurdwaras matrimonial services all over UK are blatantly promoting it. Am I the only one who thinks this way? For example, our religion was created to promote the idea a poor farmer can marry a rich person and still be equals; but the gurdwaras are not even promoting this message, they are allowing this backwards mentality and criteria to continue. Thanks
  7. Waheguru ji, this might be my first question on here, but I always feel weird skipping 85% of Anand Sahib during rehraas. Is it okay to include those 34 pauris when I do rehraas? (I have done this a few times before). I am aware that several sampardayi include more and more dasam bani, but chhota anand sahib is something every dal and sampardayi agrees on (as far as this agianee is aware of) so I am not sure whether it is okay for me to bring this up or do on a personal basis either.
  8. Here are some questions for you: Do Sikhs believe in "shrines"? Do Sikhs believe in pilgrimages? Is Amritsar a "Holy City"? Is it important for a Sikh to visit Amritsar? Is Harmander Sahib the "holiest shrine in the Sikh religion"?
  9. They are hind-ians (aka those who inhabit the ancient land of hind) and are more interested in Hind-ism than Hindu-ism. What Sikhs failed to realise is after 1947 when the Hindu's found themselves to have a majority rule again after nearly 1000 years they are more interested in defending and preserving what remains of land of hind than actual reviving and practising hinduism and uphold any of its values or teachings. The most militant and ultra nationalistic hindian will do anything including murders, torture and terrorism to ensure India is safeguarded. And the militant of these people are the types who join R&AW operations against their precieved enemies. We can even see some our own Sikhs who been brainwashed to follow this ideology of hindism especially onces who join the indian army they will rather defend india than Sikhi. We see the results of that when some traitor Sikh generals and sikh soldiers took part in the attack on darbar sahib in 1984 and those traitor punjabi Sikh policemen who killed their own Sikh brothers in the fields of punjab in late 80s to early 90s. Today we see most hindu's do not really believe in their religion, alot of their hindu religious figures the sadhu's, swami's and sants are complaining they are in grave danger of dying out as younger generations dont believe in their paths as the internet is brainwashing the youth into other ideologies. Alot of hindu religious figures are getting caught up in fraud and sexual exploitation scandals and jailed bringing the hindu faith in disrupt. But what is being replaced in young hindu minds is deep sense of nationalism. Anyone who utters a word against india is seen as a heretic, a blasphemer, an anti-national terrorist who wishes no good to their nation. It is their new religion now not hinduism but hind-ism
  10. Not that long ago, having a "Sikh" CM who wasn't a full keshdhari Sikh would have been a shocking development. Nowadays, it's not even worth mentioning. Tomorrow, the CM will be a mona with some stubble who wears a pagh in public The day after, the CM will be a mona without a pagh Next week, SGPC members will be allowed to trim Meanwhile, clowns like Deep Sidhu are held up as panthic heros This is a community in freefall that doesn't have any standards. Degenerate behavior has become so normalized that nobody even notices anymore.
  11. Just realised, 5 comes up a lot on Sikhi, just wondering, if this has been discussed before? 5 elements to make up the body 5 senses 5 pyare 5 theives 5 good qualities 5 banis 5 ks

  13. Sikhs believe in DEGH TEGH FATEH. Degh means food, clothing, medicines etc for all. If we don't save our water, forests, agriculture, animals etc. How will we hv langar, milk etc. How will we do shikaar and get best wild meat? How will we make natural medicines from plants if we cut plants and trees?
  14. Our nature is totally disturbed. We are greatly over populated. Shud we keep on increasing population and kill mother nature? Many Sikhs say that birth and death are Hukam and have 3-4 kids. Gurbani says that don't worry, God will take care of everyone and give everyone food. These Sikhs, when their 3-4 kids reach youth age, take so much tension about settling their kids and run after rich or nri families to get their kids comfortably settled. I personally feel whole human race shud decrease population, otherwise we will face societal collapse as nature is COMPLETELY disturbed
  15. ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਮੁਤਾਬਿਕ: ਸਿੱਖ ਪੰਥ ਦੀ ਵਿਆਖਿਆ | ਠਾਕੁਰ ਦਲੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ गुरबानी के अनुसार: सिख पंथ की व्याख्या | ठाकुर दलीप सिंघ जी ਇਸ ਵੀਡੀਓ ਵਿੱਚ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਦਲੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਜੀ ਨੇ ਦੱਸਿਆ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਮੁਤਾਬਿਕ ਸਿੱਖ ਪੰਥ ਇੱਕ ਭਗਤੀ ਮਾਰਗ ਅਤੇ ਸੰਤ ਮੱਤ ਹੈ। ਸਿੱਖ ਪੰਥ ਵਿੱਚ ਪ੍ਰਭੂ ਭਗਤੀ, ਨਾਮ ਜਪਣਾ ਅਤੇ ਕੀਰਤਨ ਕਰਨ ਨੂੰ ਸਰਵੋਤਮ ਮੰਨਿਆ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ। ਅਸਾਡੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਸਾਹਿਬਾਨਾਂ ਨੇ ਅਸਾਨੂੰ ਭਗਤ ਬਣਨ ਦਾ ਉਪਦੇਸ਼ ਦਿੱਤਾ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਭਗਤ ਹੀ ਬਣਾਇਆ ਹੈ। ਗੁਰਬਾਣੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਬਹੁਤ ਥਾਂਵਾ 'ਤੇ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਇਹ ਵੀ ਹੁਕਮ ਕਰਦੇ ਹਨ ਕਿ ਨਾਮ ਜਪਣ ਅਤੇ ਜਪਾਉਣ ਵਾਲਿਆਂ ਦੀ, ਕੀਰਤਨ ਕਰਨ ਵਾਲਿਆਂ ਦੀ, ਕਥਾਵਾਚਕਾਂ ਦੀ, ਚੰਗੇ ਕਰਮ ਕਰਨ ਅਤੇ ਕਰਵਾਉਣ ਵਾਲੇ ਸੰਤਾਂ ਸਾਧਾਂ ਦੀ ਪੂਜਾ ਕਰੋ। इस वीडियो में ठाकुर दलीप सिंघ जी ने बताया है कि गुरुवाणी अनुसार सिख पंथ एक भक्ति मार्ग और संत मत है। सिख पंथ में प्रभु भगती, नाम जपने वाले और कीर्तन करने वाले को सर्वश्रेष्ठ माना गया है। हमारे सतगुरु साहिबानों ने हमें भगत बनने का ही उपदेश दिया और हमें भगत ही बनाया है। गुरुवाणी में अनेक स्थानों पर सतगुरु जी हमें यह भी हुक्म करते हैं कि हमें नाम जपने व जपवाने वालों, कीर्तन करने वालों, कथावाचकों, अच्छे कर्म करने व करवाने वाले साधु संतों की पूजा करें। Thakur Dalip Singh Ji explains in this video why Sikh Panth is a path of devotion and Sant Mat according to Gurbani. Prabhu Bhagti, Naam Japna, and Kirtan are regarded as the best by the Sikh Panth. Our Satguru Sahibs have both taught and created us to be Bhagats. Satguru Ji also commands us to worship those who chant and recite Naam, those who perform kirtan, narrators, saints, and saints who do good deeds and get things done in numerous places throughout Gurbani.
  16. There is a misconception here among some apne that only Mirpuris are carrying out grooming activities in the UK. The reality is some of you are naive. Many grooming gangs have been Pakistani Punjabis, and even Bangladeshis and Afghans. The partition violence, genocide and mass rapes were initiated and committed by Punjabi Muslims against Sikhs. The forced conversion of Sikh girls in Pakistan is carried out by Punjabi Muslims. Pakistani Punjabis are themselves no better than Mirpuris but scapegoat Mirpuris for everything wrong in their own communities. Many of the groomers have been Pakistani Punjabis yet some of you act like Pakistani Punjabis are culturally akin to Sikhs just because some Sikhs happen to speak in the same dialect of Punjabi as some Pakistanis. The ringleader of the Rochdale grooming gangs was a Pakistani Punjabi from Gujrat confirmed here. This gang was the most perverted of all grooming gangs and it was run by Pakistani Punjabis: https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/rochdale-grooming-gang-deportation-rights-10903124 Another Pakistani Punjabi extradited from Faisalabad. He is another pedo from Rochdale jailed for raping kids: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7942011/Child-rapist-fled-UK-Pakistan-begins-19-year-jail-term-extradited.html The grooming gangs in Oxford were Pakistani Punjabis (most Pakistanis there are Punjabis). You see names used by central Punjabi Jatt tribes such as "Virk" and "Dogar" : https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2013/may/14/oxford-gang-guilty-grooming-girls https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2844528/Taxi-driver-three-friends-sentenced-total-68-years-gang-rape-drunk-woman-passenger.html Pakistani Punjabis have endless videos on tiktok mocking Sikh victims of grooming gangs just look at this page: tiktok.com/@datpakistanipunjabi
  17. 1. Do any of you guys know of a good tattoo parlor? I am hoping to get either a khanda tattoo or a Bhindranwale tattoo. Maybe both. 2. Do you know of a good place to get my beard trimmed? Preferably in a way such that the mustache is thicker than the rest of the facial hair so that I have that ultra douchey look? Thanks.

  20. While a lot has been written about Sikligars, Satnamis and other 'lost' tribes of Sikhi, little is known about the Vanjaras. We know some historically important Vanjara Sikhs like Bhai Lakhi Shah and his family, but others than that very little is known about them. Most NGOs have also focused on Sikligars mostly. Very little efforts have been made to reconnent with Vanjaras. While talking to sevadaars on field, they have told me that while Vanjaras are not in saroop anymore (usually don't have uncut hair or a turban) as compared to the Sikligars, they can be considered Nanakpanthis and have many ceremonies which are Sikh influenced (such as some tribes singing the name of Guru Nanak during their weddings). They are huge in numbers, were historically Sikh (or Nanakpanthis) but have been heavily targeted by RSS, Christians and Muslims. Good to see some of them returning to their faith in Telangana but we have to make more efforts to reach them. Dhan Sikhi.

Can someone help me with the journey or more preferrably who has gone through this process before?? Thanks. Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fateh
  23. Hi, This has probably been discussed before but it's something I can't really wrap my head around. I'm a singh with full beard and have cousins who are the same, we are finding it difficult to find Sikh girls as life partners. The ones I've been introduced to have a problem with me not cutting my beard and being vegetarian etc... few have asked me if I would cut my beard etc... this coming from supposedly Sikh girls and it's quite disgraceful. I've had more interest from girls who are not Sikh...i.e Gujarati, English girls etc.. who don't seem to care about me being a full singh, it's raising questions in my head about the future of Sikhi as a whole, our Sikh girls are moving away from our faith/traditions and adopting western values and ways above all. One of my cousins got fed up and cut his beard in the hopes to be more 'accepted', but I feel this is the wrong choice to make. I'd be lying if I said the thought didn't cross my mind but I don't want to move away from Sikhi just to find a wife, but it seems like our Sikh girls are. Suppose this is more of a rant than a question as such.
  24. Sat Sri Akal to All, I would like to start with the premise that I do not wish to offend anybody but I have critical questions as a mona sikh looking to develop my faith deeper and I've started learning gurmukhi. I hope you can all guide me on the path. Here's some critical questions I have around Sikhi that I need clarification on please. If you could provide sources also so I can fact check I would sincerely appreciate it. Q. What times are the 3 main prayers performed between and how long do they take to recite? I work within the technology sector across different time zones and I struggle for time with a new born and I'd like to know if there are mandatory banis I can recite in times where I struggle for time and how long would each take to recite? Q. What is the sikh stance on profits of the Abrahamic faiths? Please reply with validity of each mentioned profit; mohammed, jesus, moses, soliman, noah, abraham, adam. Q. Are there any specific eye witness accounts of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Travels from non sikh sources? Q. I recognise we must provide reverence to all sikh guru ji's, but why do we have Kirtans chanting guru ji's names e.g. Guru Ram das ko mili badai; surely we should only praise God and not have Kirtans for gurus, as this would go against what Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji preached. Q. Why do people pray to pictures of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji as though he is God, when idol worship is prohibited in Sikhi. I have witnessed this quite often, and I'm informed it's a way to pray to God (specifically citing Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is God). Q. Is Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji a profit (I understand he is a guru) but I get different answers from my sikh brothers. I'm not sure if Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is a spiritual master, a devine profit or similar to Jesus as God on earth in the flesh. Sikhs I've spoken to say he is the light of God, but I struggle to understand this concept. Does that mean God sent Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji with a revelation and he became a profit or he was a part of God and sent to mankind? Q. I struggle with the concept of when we die we go to the court where your deeds are read and witnesses are Guru Hargobind Ji, If I'm not mistaken, please correct me If I am wrong? What about the other gurus, are they not present? And what about followers of other faiths will they be judged in the same court as sikhs? If they do (followers of other faiths) how will they relate to the gurus? The reason I ask is because Jewish people claim they are the chosen ones and only God will come to them similarly with Islam and Christianity. Q. Are there any sects of Sikhism that follow just what Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji preached and not the other gurus? My paradigm is if Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji received revelation I want to follow him not the other gurus who may have been influenced by social environmental factors. This leads me to the sub question: |_ Q. If Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji was surrounded by / and in congregation with Muslims including Bhai Mardana day-to-day, is there a possibility that the later gurus through persecution incorporated Hindu doctrine a long the way. Q. How do we know conclusively that what Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji preached was not changed a long the way through theater gurus? Q. I recognise the heinous atrocities commited by the moghul tyrants against the gurus, but why do we have events and kathas etc on the Shahids of the panth. Surely this is a form of polytheism? And we should focus on the bani instead of on the atrocities that happened. If I relate this to Islam for instance, the sunni school of thought don't consider those (shiha) Muslims who hit themselves as a symbolic sign of reverence to atone for the murder of their imam Ali, If I'm not mistaken. Q. Are there any specific citations on reincarnation and how the process works in the Guru Granth Sahib Ji?
