  1. Hi I just want to put out a reminder that all Gurdware are sacred places. Please remember that when visiting any Gurdwara. I think people are getting a bit of a lax attitude. 1. If you are going, try your best to dress cleanly and smartly, just like you would if you were going to any place you respect. Also to dress in a respectful manner. 2. Before entering, remember to enter with a humble and clean heart/attitude, with respect for Guruji and God. You should enter with you head bowed. 3. Turn off your phone or put it on silent. Keep silent and don't talk unless n
  2. There was a fight in Renton Wa at the local Gurdwara. No idea what this is over, was hoping maybe someone had insight as to what is going on over there? Its apparently due to "religious difference going on within our community" and started a few weeks ago when there was another fight at Gurdwara in Kent.. Could it be related to that wedding that took place in California? https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/police-firefighters-respond-possible-assault-sikh-temple/6YMCWNFHSREE7GMH5PMO7YRRIQ/
  3. What is sangats opinion on graves (no headstones) on the gurdwara premises. Committee is considering buying a church and it has some burials. I personally don't think it is a big deal as long as we are respectful. The burials are out of the way and could be turned into flowerbeds etc with a hedge/fence around them.

    How to meet new sangat

    Waheguru ji ki khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh I have recently gotten into sikhi, it has been around 3 years since I've started wearing a dastar now I think. Since I've started I have had stages where I have been very religious and then stages where I haven't. Coming from a non religious family at all I find it hard to get guidance from someone close to me. I have two local Gurdwaras one of which I used to go to regularly however they seemed to be very Liberal and hardly any of them were gursikhs and most of them drunk alcohol and such things. The other Gurdwara I have been to a few ti

    greeting Guru ji

    Hi Redoptics posted this link on another thread: https://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Bhai_Nand_Lal_Rahitnama What I found particularly interesting was this bit: The Sikh desirous of Guru’s Darshan,Should go and have the Darshan of Granth Jee,(14)After ablution early in the morning,he should judiciously undertake its three circumambulation,(15)DohiraWith folded hands he should be seated, seeking my audience,And after paying obeisance to Guru Granth Jee, listen to the celestial exposition.(16) I just thought it was an interesting (somewhat lost?) tradition
  11. https://www.indy100.com/article/andy-street-sikh-mosque-gurdwara-conservative-m The gaffe is a possibility as Dr Jasjit S tweet makes clear, we haven't educated others with Sikhi terminology, but wth is a n1gger Kirtan...that's a new one!!
  12. Beautiful old gurdwara built during the Sikh empire by Baba Bir Singh Naurangabad. Baba Bir Singh was a warrior. Most of these old Gurdwareh have been demolished. Have no idea if this Gurdwara is still standing or has been demolished.
  13. Which historic gurdwaras do you really want to go to? I really want to go to tarn taran sahib, I have never been, with wahegurus kirpa I will go some time in the future. It's one gurdwara that I really want to go to I have been harmandir sahib so many times but never been tarn taran sahib.
  14. Gurdwara Shaheed Singh Singhnia in Lahore marks the site of execution of thousands of puratan Singhs . The Gurdwara was built with efforts of UK sikhs And singhnia during Mir Mannu's time . Gurdwara marking the shaheedi of Bhai Taru Singh is also nearby . The Gurdwara is built on top of Shaheedganj mosque where execution of Sikhs used to happen.
  15. Fed up of Gurdwara politics, how the older generation treat youth and tension in general. Want to take a small break from gurdwara. Ps not just a problem at one particular gurdwara but is happening everywhere

    Living at a Guru Khar?

    WJKK WJKF, Daas was just wondering if any Guru Khars (mainly in the Birmingham area) allow one to live there (permanently). WJKK WJKF
  17. We need drastic changes to all Gurdwaras Ideas It should be mandatory for all Gurdwaras to have a training room ie a Gym and some kind of self defence or fighting skill taught free of charge. We need to hire trained martial artist of or other self defence discpline teacher to train the youth. One of the fundemental beliefs in Sikhism is that we should be armed and trained. Ready to defend ourselves and others. Yet Gurdwara space and resources is going unused. This will also attract the youth into the gurdwaras as their will be many types of activities availabl
  18. Sometimes when I am rushing to work in the morning and don't have time to even go to gurdwara for ardas and matha tek (god forgive me) , I tend to do ardas in the direction of nearest gurdwara from my bedroom itself and do matha tek in that direction . Is this valid belief in sikhism ?
  19. NOTE: This post is a work in progress Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Often times I hear Non-Sikhs bring up common arguments against Sikhi, and as someone who likes to create a lot online resource hubs for Sikhs, I am taking it upon myself to create a list of Q/A's. I recently got a series of arguments (posing as questions) from an anonymous user on the Sikh Reddit who was allegedly Ex-Sikh. He frequently made references to Islam, and also claimed that he had done a lot of research on his "questions", yet the questions themselves seem as if they are taken from wi
  20. Just watched this , done very well but points everything out that's wrong in our gurdwara
  21. Why are white Sikhs opening their own Gurdwara?
  22. VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, I live in London and have done my whole life and don't know anything the Manchester area. I'm going to be in Sale, Manchester soon and I wanted to know if there are any Gurdwaras in that area or just any Gurdwaras in Central Manchester Ji. Thank you Ji. Vaheguru Ji.

    original Karah Prashad

    Hi, this is not to rake up any controversy, just out of general interest. I was wondering about the original recipe of Karah Prashad. To my knowledge, the western Gurdwaras today use: wheat, butter, brown sugar. these are convenient, though processed foods. They are also modern variants. So what were the ingredients used in Guru ji's times? For example, it must have been whole wheat. And ghee I presume? And Gurr (indian red sugar)? Also, I presume it was cooked in an iron pot? Can any history buffs help with this?
