  1. Remembering my youth days having taken Amrit at 17, I was extremely uptight and thought "The world is wrong..." At 25 I eased up a little. Not a lot but a little. So, things that matter to Amritdhari... Amrit must be taken by Panj Pyaare, 5 k's MUST be kept on at all times Doing seven Baania is a MUST (Japji and Jaap before consuming ANYTHING) but we as Sikhs do Panj baania before breakfast. Sangat, Simran and Seva is a huge must. Simran / paat everyday. Only bow down before SGGS. Giving up five vices. Keep away from the 4 major sins. No
  2. Today I see many people mix Punjabi culture things with sikhi. Like I personally think that Bhangra, giddha and other things like this aren’t related to sikhi and aren’t allowed for Sikh to do. People need to understand that being Punjabi is different than being a Sikh. Do u guys think that Bhangra and giddha r forbidden in sikhi?? I wanna hear sum more people’s vichar in this
  3. Surprising, but oh well, good news if the survey was done properly. SUMMARY Around 82 per cent Sikh youngsters pray regularly or sometimes even if there is no festival being celebrated. The corresponding figure was 74 per cent for Christians, 72 per cent for Muslims, 69 per cent for Hindus and 46 per cent for others. Around 86 per cent Sikh youngsters visited a place of worship (gurudwara) even when there was no festival, compared to 57 per cent each for Hindus and Christians and 56 per cent for Muslims. The share of Sikh youth drawn towards TV channels showing religiou
  4. Modern-day sikhs/singhs aren't warriors, which is a shame. Most of the actual sikhs in Canada especially are soft as they come, they don't exercise, know how to fight, or stand their ground, instead they're pushovers, and I'm talking about the Sikhs who were born and raised in Canada they're either fat or really skinny with no muscle allowing them to become targets of bullying and crime, not only that they also lack confidence which is something every singh needs, as they should be brave and stand up for others. We need to start making sikh youth work out from a early age and get th
  5. I just wanted to make my first post here because this has been playing on my mind for a while now. I feel like Sikhi Kirtan does not have the same passion I hear from other religious musical pieces, and as a result its not inspiring young people. I feel like the popular Kirtans are easy, dull, follows Bollywood/punjabi tunes and therefore lacks originality/identity/spiritualism. I have been listening to Islamic sufi music, Christian hymns and Hindu Kirtans - which I find all sound different and beautiful in their own way. With Sufi music drawing me in the most - even Bollywood adaptations like

    Respect for Elders

    I think that a firm concept in every world dharam is respect for elders. It is also the baseline value on which all civil and peaceful societies and cultres are built. When there is respect for elders, I think, the society goes to hell. And this is what I am increasingly witnessing in capitalistic societies, and the sikh people in them (not just the youth). What does respect for elders mean? It means putting them at the top as the authority, not disrepecting them, but showing them consideration and obedience. So who are these elders?: 1. You parents. After God and Gur
  8. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh ji. Upon seeing a forum, I decided to get the sangat opinion too. I myself am a teen. I am 15. I love to go to gurdwara camps because you get a lot a laha and you get to learn how to be a better person. I am speaking about youths in my country Malaysia. When I go to camps, I speak to many people. They all become my friend. I am not sure of the male gender tho but I have a few guys and girls asking me if I am single or if I have a crush on someone or if I would like to be in a relationship. I always say to them that I am not here to find a partner and
  9. Watched this video of old Indian movie starts with photos of back then and now. Youth is so short! When your young you often forget how short it is! you forget that one day you too are gnna be old! looking at these photos just got me thinking how short and fleeting it is! These people must of been worshiped during their golden years. Its important to remember that we are gnna get old and youth will not always last. Youth, beauty, friends, wealth etc it all goes at the end and only Naam and Waheguru ji stay with you
  10. I see lots of patka wearing boys into Sikhi up until about age 16. It’s like they are young and dumb (in a good way). Their mums tie their patka and it looks very smart, and bring them to the gurdwara regularly. But age 16 onwards what happens? First they tie their hair back with patka, then they tie African durags. It’s not uncommon to spot them wearing caps and topis. When the facial hair comes through it gets trimmed and shaped. Once 18 drinking and clubbing begins. Young and dumb (being innocent) gets replaced growing up, but what with? Is it fashion, bad sangat or something els

    media brainwashing

    Here's a list of media brainwashing, in western countries, to make people aware of it and so wake up (and become immune to it), feel free to add your own observations: 1. to view all women (even young women/girls) as sex objects. from a young age the media tries to put the idea in males heads that any female should be sized up for sexual attractiveness 2. for all women to view themselves are sex objects. girls are taught from a young age that what others think of them and how much attention they get is a 'measure' of their 'worth'. any woman who does not want to put excessive at

    Our sikh youth

    WGJKK WGJKF Whilst going through college and university, I have noticed a huge divide in our Sikh youth. I've seen many young Sikh men either go full cultural or full Sikhi. Women on the other hand, I rarely see any that truly follow Sikhi. I know one woman, 21 now who is dating an amrit shuk man in his 20s. She got personal and told me that they've had intimate relations and that it only took 4 days of them speaking for her to give him that intimacy (intercourse.. ). And she really shows interest in Sikhi but didn't truly see how wrong this was. And for

    Women in sikh youth

    WGJKK WGJKF Whilst going through college and university, I have noticed a huge divide in our Sikh youth. I've seen many young Sikh men either go full cultural or full Sikhi. Women on the other hand, I rarely see any that truly follow Sikhi. I know one woman, 21 now who is dating an amrit shuk man in his 20s.

  14. i am 18 years old, pursuing computer engineering in a well reputed college in mumbai. i have always had cool friends and supporting parents. but, i've never been a staunch believer in religion. i always find religion to be pointless, following what some person(s) said/wrote hundreds or thousands or years ago and having to follow their rules and the way they want us to lead our lives just doesn't seem right to me at all. i've been smoking weed since a year, and quite regularly. my grades are not affected by,and i've not been as irritable i was since a long time. i never intended to let my paren
  15. Now that I am in the last of my 20's am already reflecting back on everything from my highlights to low lights. Unfortunately my Jeevan as a Sikh is in the low light. At 19 I thought "With Guru's grace I can reach a sant level by the time am 30!" YES it can happen before another year's up. I even thought I be married and a father before 30! But nah. Hopefully this year should be married but it's another hope. The amount of time I thought of doing sangat, simran and seva on a daily basis. Putting in 2.5 hours a day in extra prayers (exclude this time from 5 baanias)... It's been on and off but

    sikh morality code

    Hi. So I had this idea of putting together a 'morality code', initially for youth, but also for older sikhs we want to connect more with the religion and also for non-sikhs interested to learn. I want all the rules to be based on teachings of SGGS. Sort a basic moral guidance based in Gurbani. I invite you all to suggest alterations and additions. It would be good to have Gurbani quotes to go with the list, but I'm have not memorised SGGS well enough, so if anyone can help with that too, that would be good. Moral 'guides' for sikhs: 1. Always remember God/Gods name. This
  17. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. I was just wondering (after spending some going through the pages of some Sikh Organisations/personalities on facebook and instagram) that what exactly does it take for a person to become a Sikh Parcharik. In the modern day, we have, sadly, limited young parchariks who are truly dedicated to Sikhi (in and out) and can set as role model to the panth themselves, especially the younger generations outside India. Anyway, I found many who do regular kirtan are not following rehat (not hating, no worries) even though they sing bani beauti
  18. Seeing how young Sikhs of today are surrounded by so many different ideologies, religions, sexualities, etc in a very confusing world of competing idea's how would you raise your kids to learn and be proud Sikhs? Even if they do not take amrit or keep their unshorn hair, how would you instill that loyalty to sikhi and pride in them?
  19. I started this thread because I think we need to invest into Punjab and fix it, Punjab needs Literate youths, more education, more industries, destroyal of the caste system, we need to fix the Drug and Water Crisis, A excellent link to some videos have been sent to me in my messages. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZKK3T484Kg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwWHyVy2eJY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZhFTMeS22g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29XNCfwidMI And the same user made a great post about this problem in the Khalistan thread. What are some ways we can F
  20. Educatetosave.com I recently attended a program and Bhai Veer Manpreet singh performed kirtan of very high quality. Searching his next venue, I was determined to reach on time for more. I may have been a bit blind to how we can all help alleviate the immediate dangers to Punjab population which are being highlighted in the media now. However after half an hour of a video show and a touching speech, the solution has been found in sponsoring education to the poor villages in Punjab. Baba Ji who runs Baru Sahib now has a plan for which he needs help from all of us - which if I am not w
  21. Happened to attend a boy's 16th birthday paath at a Gurdwara. After the ardaas and hukamnama, I expected the teen to be given a siropa. He was sitting next to me so I said to him to get ready to go up and matha tek. He had no idea about what was going to happen. Duly, he was called to the front, matta tuk and was given a siropa. He sat down and put it on the floor. I told him to not do so and to place it on his lap or even hold it. After a few seconds, he put it back on the floor. Why? Because his dad told him to do so. I can understand the boy not knowing what a siropa is. I know I strugg
  22. I'm wondering after the baba jee pillars and elderly leaders of the Sikh community of the present time pass on....... have we got up and coming charismatic youth leaders to take their place? Or will be Sikh masses be left to their own devices and no longer an effective force against those who wish our community ill will. I can see within 5-10 years when the leaders who lived in the times of 1984 and put all their energy fighting for Sikh rights and khalistan pass on there will be no one influential will left to fight for the rights of the community.
