    Jathera Worship

    I have a question about Jathere. My immediate and extended family are very devout into going to their Jathere and performing all sorts of traditions and rituals there. At one point Guru Granth Sahib ji was kept at "my" jathera but was removed by some Singhs for obvious reasons. From my understanding of Sikhi, worshipping ancestors,idols, and etc is a hollow act in itself and not neccessarily going to lead you down the spiritual path you may be seeking (I think we can reference the last pauris of Tav Prasad Svaye here). The realization and understanding of spirituality in the sikhi perspective
  2. Why did God create everything? Everything that has ever existed? Iv read how at the beginning there was nothing, just Waheguru himself meditating on himself. Then why did he creat us and everything else? What was the purpose? Why was Maya created by Waheguru if it is a illusion? Why were we created and then put in this test? Why? Why were we and anything else created? And why is everything created as a test? Like why does God not make himself present before atheists and people like that? Why is it all a test, something that some people believe in and somethi

    Maya Vatnaa?

    To the brave Singh's and Kaur's, My first question is that i've gone to many weddings and never understood the relevance of a "maya vatna" or "mayan". They sing songs and apply haldi or whatever to the skin but isn't maya a sin, so <banned word filter activated> are they doing? My second question is often I hear at akand paaths and weddings that this person did "dus pound haajare kithee" forgive my spelling. But whats the point in announcing how much someone has donated? Is it a competition? are they trying to buy their way into such kand? I just don't understand T
  4. Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki fateh, As a new member a bit about myself. I was 17 when I got baptised. 11 years on wards I have, so far, enjoyed every minute of it. STILL am! with kirpa. BUT you have not clicked this post to read about this am sure? So let's got on with the title. Why Sikhs should not gamble... In late August 2015 I had came up with an idea, to gamble online. I had known it is against the rehat especially for Amritdhaaris. It even states in SGGS "Gamblers, adulterers leave this world barefooted/ empty handed" (referring to NOTHING good can come out of it in t
  5. Does anyone have any personal experience on whether maya ceases to have effect on people ? Even after reading baani, we feel short . We feel attracted to people even in gurudwaras. Like when a handsome guy or cute girl walks through, many young minds who otherwise submerged in divine rass of kirtan would tilt their heads to see that person they feel attracted to. People who say they have renounced things , and indeed very tough it is to renounce your dreams and lifestyle (when it conflicts with dharmic life) and many other things if you desire to walk on the path to spirituality, but
  6. IF we get too entangled in this fake world we will depart with tears of remorse in our eyes (like the fish that does not understand the net and separates from ocean in deep sorrow) when the illusion of this world will vanish , so instead of focusing on material comforts and family, make naam meditation your goal. ਮਛੁਲੀ ਵਿਛੁੰਨੀ ਨੈਣ ਰੁੰਨੀ ਜਾਲੁ ਬਧਿਕਿ ਪਾਇਆ ॥ मछुली विछुंनी नैण रुंनी जालु बधिकि पाइआ ॥ Macẖẖulī vicẖẖunnī naiṇ runnī jāl baḏẖik pā▫i▫ā. The fish leaves the water with tearful eyes, when the fisherman casts his net. ਸੰਸਾਰੁ ਮਾਇਆ ਮੋਹੁ ਮੀਠਾ ਅੰਤਿ ਭਰਮੁ ਚੁਕਾਇਆ ॥ संसारु माइआ मोहु मीठा अंति भ
  7. All of our suffering is of our own making ! This dawned on me from within one of my deeper meditations. Lets see how our mind gets caught up in meaningless , petty things and prevents us from enjoying life to the fullest (i) Financial Suffering Buy only what you need and what you want - limit your needs , helping a kid go to school for example will bring you much more happiness than buying the latest gadget . The most stupid thing to try to do is to keep up with others and put up a show of wealth - its called rat race for a reason - rats start scrambling when they see one rat run
  8. I took amrit a while before and my life from then has just changed dramatically (for the best)! I became very peaceful, relaxed and happy with whatever Waheguru ji did. The main thing that brought me happiness was that I finally accepted that all my family and friends will eventually fade away and that only wahgeuru ji will be left by my side. It made me so happy and I just felt like I can deal with any problem or sorrow just by remembering this, it even helped me concentrate when I did my nitnem etc. However after having a few family events I feel like i'm getting sucked back into this bla
  9. dear all i am curious to know who and when did this all started. when was the first golak kept in front of SGGS ji? what was the need? and why do we need it in this day and age? do other religions have golaks? which ones dont have golaks and why? your intellectual thoughts are most welcome. is this true that "maya" corrupts the mind and the soul - but why do we throw maya right in front of SGGS ji? Go Golak Go!
