  1. I have a taksali kirpan that looks like this: Its not really going to be functional if it ever needs to be used in a fight because the tip is curved.My question was where can i get a functional sarbloh kirpan, can we use modern day knives that are sarbloh like the m9 bayonet or a whole list of knives used by soldiers in special forces here and use it with a gatra: http://www.themodernsurvivalist.com/archives/1633
  2. I have recently started to study Gurbani, am amazed at the wealth of knowledge and wisdom I am gathering. Should have began doing it long ago, unfortunately my parents have lost the way and never encouraged me to study when I was young. These past couple years since COVID have been rough, and reading this has really helped me mentally. I stumbled upon this and am not sure what to make of it. It really sounds sort of like the times we are living in now... Interested to hear how the community here interprets this. What does it mean? ਕਲਿ ਹੋਈ ਕੁਤੇ ਮੁਹੀ ਖਾਜੁ ਹੋਆ ਮੁਰਦਾਰੁ ॥ ਕੂੜੁ ਬੋਲਿ ਬੋਲ
  3. I was watching a lecture by Dr. Kamalroop Singh Ji Nihang and noticed something interesting. He mentions that the British attacked Sri Akal Takht during their raj. This was at the 9:20 mark. He mentions this as being Mazhabi ithaas as it was these Sikhs who became shaheed. If anyone has information on this event please post.
  4. Just wondering how sikhi parallels to the gods believed to exist by great minds such as einstein. Does sikhi concept of god the same as the one thought of by Baruch Spinoza??
  5. Should it or not? The obvious answer most of you will reply with is Sikh migration to UK, Canada, USA, etc., but that's because the Punjab we know is still hovering in the back of our consciousness. We know it's there even if we aren't connected to it directly. But what if Sikhi's link to Punjab was severed definitively? What would we lose as a people? What would we gain? Is it necessary for a spiritual or religious movement to have physical, material roots in a specific geographic location, or is the only important consideration the ideology itself? I'm not quite certain which
  6. Is it okay to miss your Nitnem whilst on a journey?

    Baagi Ja Baadhsah

    WJKK WJKF, Not sure if this is the right place to ask but I’ve heard the term “Baagi ja Baadhshah” (rebel or ruler) and I’m trying to find where the term came from? i think it is used to describe Khalsa so I suspect it may be in SarabloH Granth. anyone knowledgeable able to help? thankS WJKK WJKF
  8. a question i have been meaning to ask.I plan to start going to an mma place near me and start learning jiu jutsu, the problem is I keep worrying that my dastar will come off or become loose and I will have to spend more time fixing it rather than practicing or sparring. How do you guys get around this?I don't really want to tie a patka as I'd look really funny , how do you guys tie a tight small dastar that will stick to your head even if your rolling around jumping ,getting grappled etc.I know if I am training with apney they might be more careful and try not to take off your dastar but if an

    It’s driving me mad

    Sangat ji I did some research on 1984. It good because before I didn’t know anything about it now I do. But finding out what happened is driving me mad. I can’t stop thinking about it now, day and night I’m just thinking why did innocent Sikhs have to be tortured so badly and killed. First operation bluestar where innocent sangat were killed. They were lined up and shot at point blank range multiple times. Baba Bidhi Chand Ji’s samparda set off to protect Sri Darbar Sahib, but they were spotted by a army helicopter gunship. It opened fire spraying them in bullets, hundreds of those sangat
  10. I started thinking well why don't we feel the pain of seperation from vaheguru the greatest pain of all? Well, I thought it was because we were asleep intoxicated by maya. Maybe the desire to meet vaheguru is so deep and profound and intense that we buried it deep into our unconciousness as it otherwise be too painful for us to bear. Maybe we indulge ourselves in sin like an alcholic who drinks to make his suffering go away only to wake up worse than he started and so he drinks again, and the cycle continues.Maybe after cleaning out our conciousness enough and wiping out the filth, that desire
  11. I couldn't help but wonder that during such terrible times, that someone might have thought that khalsa raaj would be waiting on the other side.Could anyone please share any bachans mahapurkhs gave to anyone who had asked about these events of global suffering.
  12. I was listening to this podcast,a lot of interesting stuff to say in the least. What do you guys think about this guy?
  13. Simran(remembrance) is about feeling love for waheguru and it's when that love which when it overwhelms us we get kirpa(grace) and we make leaps in progress on the path to self-realization,to merge with the one. Love and sharda(faith) is the foundation of Sikhi and it's quality is what saves us.It's what puratan singhs and singhnia had so infinitely in abundance for which we remember them and their sacrifices that we lack so much,but what is this love? To help understand I read this beautiful chapter posted here: Note*-This is a small part of it I pasted here to hopefully encourage
  14. why bother trying to accomplish anything if it's all just a matter of grace. Even with love of parmatma and doing bhagti,it's only by their will as written in bani,so what good is the existence of others like me who aren't blessed with that love to do bhagti?Are life is just a wavering blob of mere existence.
  15. what would you ask from guru sahib if they asked you to ask for anything you want? Like if it was on the spot,if guru sahib or a sant mahapurkh for instance,what is the best and wisest to ask for?
  16. For example,children with their parents,how do you know it's moh or love.If a child is scolded,child starts crying is that moh? Is crying in general an expression of moh. Does being free from moh mean being a master of controlling your emotions.Controlling emotions when you feel happy,sad,angry being emotionally repressed like inputting commands into a computer? In essence does it mean to not be affected by emotions? Please explain.
  17. I keep asking myself this. Only the brave, reply.
  18. The Sikh faith is renowned for its ideas and practices on tolerance and understanding. There have been historical accounts where Sikh figures have exceeded all normal human limits on what is considered to be benevolent and tolerant behaviour. However, in the day-to-day reality of life for the average person (i.e. us), should there ever be limits imposed on how far we utilise these compassionate qualities, especially if the unbridled display and utilisation of such goodness will ultimately never be reciprocated, and, more importantly, will actually serve to cause more harm than discernible goo

    Guru Arjan Dev Ji - 4 Sins

    ਚਾਰੇ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਉਨਿ ਅਘ ਕੀਏ ਹੋਆ ਅਸੁਰ ਸੰਘਾਰੁ ॥ Chaarae Kilavikh Oun Agh Keeeae Hoaa Asur Sanghaar || If you have committed the four great sins and other mistakes; even if you are a murderous fiend does anyone know what is meant by the 4 great sins. it makes me think of the bujjar kurehit...is it something similar? the line is by Guru Arjan Dev Ji on Ang 70 if you want to go look at the full shabad.

    Just a question out of curiousity, I know you guys will be annoyed by yet another pesh post but... do you only need pesh for bujjar kurehit?

    Ishnaan query

    Can panj ishnaan replace full ishnaan at amritvela? Panj during amritvela and then after nitnem full ishnaan after amritvela is that okay or not?
  23. Guest


    I am amritdhari and I think I keep good rehat (keshi ishnaan everyday no outside food, vegetarian, nitnemis) but I made a mistake. I watched porn and masturbated. I regret it so much, and this is such a big problem for me. Is it a kurehit? Do I need to Pesh? And how do I stop?
  24. Also the video discusses why people get sleepy during simran.
