  1. This forum usually hated on Khalsa Aid for their global work, and not discriminating against who they help. They're easily one of the most useful organizations at Singhu and Tikri right now. Certain few people here should be ashamed.
  2. Donate Now: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayCharityCampaignPage.action?campaignId=18091&charityId=1011736 Shaheed Bhai Subeg Singh Ji served the panth from a young age and had immense pyaar for it. His family lives in poverty and used to get harassed by the police because of his involvement within the panth. The mother of our shaheed singh is currently struggling and living in a tent. YourSeva needs to raise £4,000.00 to start rebuilding her house. Please, let's donate and rebuild our beautiful mother's home.

  4. Which groups actively help the widows and mothers of shaheed? Which groups currently provide for the Paanth?
  5. I know there are a lot of fake corrupt charities, ashrams and babeh in Punjab and it's hard to trust these people, but i think this young man is genuine and is doing seva from his heart. Does anyone know anything about him? He doesnt collect money but asks for building material to expand the buildings. It's really sad to hear the stories of these vulnerable people. People who hurt and tortured these vulnerable people are pure evil. Government has nothing in place for these people who really need help.

  7. Hey everybody. It’s nice to be here and to start looking into Sikhism. A true, short story follows of what has got this Gora interested in delving into Sikhism (hint: it’s Seva!): “How do you feel about that?” sounds like an innocuous question and you’d never guess that so few words could shake the foundations of a person’s world but that’s precisely what happened to me a little while back. The context was simple enough; my partner’s fifteen year-old niece, Kiran, had been excluded from school and had been placed in a referral unit owing to her anti-social behaviour and it was obvious that her cultural milieu wasn’t going to improve any time soon. We decided to bring her out from the British inner-city to live with us here in our beautiful sierra in southern Spain. The above question (“How do you feel about that?”) came instinctively from a friend upon being informed of the situation. In that very moment I saw that instead of viewing the opportunity to help a fellow human being as a positive occurrence, my friend’s perspective was all about how such a course of action would impact negatively upon her own life. She wasn’t the only person amongst my friends who had difficulty understanding how we could possibly contemplate interrupting our paradisiacal existence here in the foothills of the majestic Sierra de Grazalema by introducing a troubled teenager into our lives. I found it hard to believe that anybody could even ask that question. Surely when a family member, especially a fifteen-year-old child, is going off the rails it’s one’s responsibility as an adult to intervene and help in whatever way necessary; however, in these self-obsessed times that’s no longer the default response for a lot of people. It is obviously, and tragically, more important to concentrate purely on oneself and turn away from those in need. I began ruminating on whether this disinclination to seva is a timeless phenomenon and something merely exacerbated by the recent emergence of the social media, face-in-phone existence we all inhabit. Were we formerly more given to offering selfless service or has it always been a relatively rare offering? What was particularly interesting about this dialogue was that the person in question was far from the stereotype of a "heartless capitalist"(or however you'd like to cast an obvious bad guy). Her group of friends are very central in the local yoga world and she constantly speaks of meditation, Ayahuasca and other “spiritual” practices…but, crucially, she seems to have missed the most significant side of spiritual life: dedication to others less fortunate than oneself. The million-dollar question is how do we make seva as popular in the west as yoga and meditation? Is it possible to create a society (or perhaps enclaves of selfless compassion) where seva becomes central to more people’s lives? Or has the self-absorption of our narcissistic, neo-liberal ways destroyed any possibility of this occurring? Anyway, nice light question to get myself acquainted with y'all!
  8. WGJKK WGJKKFCan one of the siane Singhs on here shed some light on rehat of doing seva after peshi and completing tankha.If someone takes amrit as a child/teenager, commits a bujjar kurehit and completes peshi / tankha as an adult, what sevas are they restricted from doing?I heard they cannot do seva in punj during amrit sachar, does this stand for above scenario as well (taking amrit in young age and peshi as adult)? What about pahradar or granthi during amrit sachar?What about receiving Panja di degh after diwan? Seva in panj for nishan sahib seva or making a gurmatta?

No concern is too big or too small! I am starting college and have no idea about what course of study to follow. I wrote "pre-med" on my initial application, but don't like studying science and don't know what other options I might have? I am working for a family, taking care of their two little children. They don't pay me, but give me a room and food. They also don't return my passport. I am scared if I ask them for it, they may tell immigration to take me away. The teacher's assistant in my 4th period class always threatens to take off extra points from my exam if I don't give write him 250 lines of "I am a curry smelling monkey" daily. He says he has this power. My fiance and I got into a fight. That happens almost every week. But this time, he angrily shoved me really hard, and I am very scared. If I tell anyone, he will get into trouble. I've come home every evening for three months straight to find my wife sitting on the couch, looking depressed, claiming today is going to be her last day. She also looks drugged, and I suspect she is drinking alcohol. What should I do? My Mom and I were arguing because some boy from school keeps calling our home late at night. For the first time, I yelled at Mom for five whole minutes. I felt ashamed later and left. It's been two days and I haven't been back home now I don't know how to. http://www.sikhfamilycenter.org/sfc/408800SEVA.html
