  1. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Basics of Sikhi urgently needs help, it only has enough money to last 3-4 months! Basics of Sikhi has helped spearhead Parchaar of Sikhi online. The parent organization “Everythings 13” has multiple projects which include not only Parchaar, but also training the first generation of western Parchaariks, creating content for the children of the Panth, countering anti Sikh propaganda in the media, and spreading the message of Sikhi to the world. Organizations such as Basics of Sikhi are currently playing an important role in the survival of the Sikh Dharam. Basics of Sikhi is more important than any single Gurdwara, because without organizations such BoS, there won’t be anyone to use all these big and fancy Girdwara’s that we like to throw money at. It’s time to invest in the community, which will only generate more returns in the future! Basics of Sikhi had a very major role in my, and many other Sikhs lives. I know for a fact that if it wasn’t for that famous Jagraj vs Dhawa Man video, that I would have never be inspired to become a Sikh, and would just be some Punjabi Boi who plays video games on YouTube. I personally know a lot of Sikhs and families who had their entire lives changed by BoS. I am not getting paid to say this message, I’m just an average Sikh who is trying to do my part. It is my request that you all donate to Basics of Sikhi. If you don’t have the money, then try to donate your time, but in both cases, please share this message EVERYWHERE!
  2. Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh Hi all, I have a question about my issue of my spiritual name and I don't have a group of Gursikhs to talk about this so posting it here in hope of a response of some kind. First I will explain a bit about my background...as there maybe some who are a bit unsure when I mention Kundalini yoga and Sikhi together... Ok so overall I've done yoga since a teenager, though two years ago I started Kundalini yoga meditation with mantras e.g. Sat Nam and my life started getting better. I stopped drinking alcohol and became vege again like I did in my teens. It was at a Kundalini yoga festival I happened to drive a Sikh man (who is now a dear friend) there and while there he suggested I go to a talk on Who is Guru Nanak by Basics of Sikhi. So I did as I was listening to and singing along to music with his name in. The talk was interesting as were the values posted around the school we were in. Anyway I didn't think much about it though a few months later I watched more Basics videos and I felt drawn to go along to Simran just before my 27th birthday at my local Gurdwara. I literally just turned up at the door and thankfully someone showed me around as everything was new to me (and I still go). So fast forward a little more...a few months go by and I sign up for my yoga teacher training then a little further into that I get a spiritual name, fully it's Ajeet Amrita Kaur, though people just call me Ajeet. It's apparently based on numerology but they don't go into specifics. It was in my training I first learnt Japji Sahib, first in English then Gurmukhi. Anyway...so this Summer I went to Khalsa camp, after a magical day of meeting another Kaur while volunteering and seeing a flyer on the wall in the Gurdwara on a day I don't usually go. I just booked it and drove all the way to Wales. Totally worth it and I experienced Amrit Vela in a wonderful way, I'm learning Jaap Sahib now gradually, it's beautiful. It was there I learnt more about the name Hukamnama and it sounded wonderful! Though I have Ajeet and I like it, it suits me. Victory over obstacles. I would even consider changing to it permanently (from Alice) and it seems strange to ask for another name. Though I have doubts that I may be looked down upon for my names background. I am also confused to how it works with Kaur legally, is it a middle name or surname? Someone I know from a Kundalini background who has taken Amrit will legally change hers when she's married, though that's not me, I'd do it as I want to. So if anyone has any response or questions please comment. Thank you for your time Ajeet
  3. Sangat Ji, I am providing a small donation to Everything's 13 and the great thing is my work place (Salesforce) will match my monthly donation so essentially the donation becomes doubled. Salesforce need to verify the status of Everything's 13 charitable status as well as contact a member of the charity to set up the donation process/verify bank details. I have contacted Everything's 13 as per there website contact details but have received no reply to e-mail and the phone number seems dead. Can anyone confirm a person that can be contacted at the charity so that I can provide the correct contact details to Salesforce? Harpreet
  4. Hi, I am a non-sikh but I have been looking into the belief system as I already believe many of the things taught in this religion. I meditate, I'm grateful, I help those who need help, I try to protect people from injustice, I try to share what I have, I protect my environment. I would like to know of there is a book or something that has all of the basics in one place already translated to english. I try to be a good leader of my family and I'm sure the sikh teachings would be good for all of us. It would be great if there is something that tells a little about each guru, and explains what he taught and why. Thanks for the help.
  5. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh People may ask why we Sikhs are forbidden from performing the 4 Bajjar Kurehits, and why we must not associate with the 5 Mel. An article has now been uploaded at the following link explaining why we are not allowed to partake in such activities, with quotes from Sri Sarbloh Granth Sahib Ji and Sri Gurpartap Suraj Parkash Granth: http://budhadal.org/site/faq/ Below is an article for newcomers to Sikhi to read, where they can know the difference between a "Sikh" and a "Khalsa", and why Sikhs wear a turban, with significance from other world religions: http://budhadal.org/site/sikh/ Saad Sangat Ji, still more to come yet! Check out a daily Hukamnama from all 3 Granths here: http://budhadal.org/site/hukamnama/ More articles will be uploaded for the Basics of our Dharam. Watch this space! Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  6. My name is Andrew. I live in the South East United States. My question is simple, but I feel I should offer a small amount of background to help our understanding. There is not a large community of Sikhs in SE-US, and I have had very little contact with practitioners. My first exposure to anything Sikh began when I stumbled upon a video about the events of 1984 and operation 'Blue Star' on YouTube. I have no recolection as to how I came upon that video, or which one it was. One of the side videos linked out to the Basics of Sikhi Channel. I really enjoyed most of what he had to say, and I was surprised to learn I agree with some of the basic tenets of Sikhi. I especially believe in selfless service, honoring yourself in the form of creation, and meditation on the force that created the universe. Now, if youve followed me this far, I will get to my question. I would like to have some more in depth information, but I have no idea where to start. What are your suggestions?
