  1. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! I wanted to know if it's ever ok to just listen to Nitnem without physically doing it due to some reason? Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
  2. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh This will sound quite petty to most people but I'm sure some kaurs can relate. I'm nineteen years old, I took amrit when I was fourteen and I tie a dastar and have always been strict with my rehat. However, I've begun to struggle. While I still religiously get up to do my nitnem and am strict on what I consume, what music I listen to etc., I'm struggling with bana. I love my dastar, but I'm falling back into my old ways of wanting to wear quirky jewellery and accessories and nail polish. I'm an artist so I am heavily pulled towards self expression, and the people I spend time with encourage me to do this, and I can't stop spending time with them because I'm at uni with them. This sounds petty, but for those of you who have been strict with your rehit and bana, you'll understand how desperately I want to keep my rehat, but I also want to express myself outwardly, not just as a sikh, but as myself, unique. I would very much appreciate any ideas, words of wisdom or little faith boosting comments from any sisters. Sorry if this sounds petty, but I want to feel expressive, unique, happy and free without giving up my rehat.

    Pressures of Marriage

    VJKK, VJKF! With Waheguru Ji's kirpa I have been blessed with Amrit recently. I am getting used to the change in my life so far and it's been a great journey, however, I am starting to feel the pressures of marriage. I just turned 25 years old and my family is saying I should start looking now before it's too late, but whenever someone from Sangat introduces me to another Singh, the topic of kes comes up. They want me to break my rehat and shave before marriage. This is something I am not willing to do and never will do, but the pressures of marriage and finding the right life partner is becoming hard. My whole family is not devoted to Sikhi, just a few of us, so it's even more difficult. Another challenge is education. Everyone wants me to find someone with a degree, job and living at home in Canada. Any advice anyone can give would be great.

  5. This is really interesting. From Hew McLeod's translation of the rehat.
  6. I have read that the person who tries to explain gurbani is sinning, and its a bad thing to do, but itsnt katha basically the same thing? Thoroughly confused.

    how to stay on this path

    I am amritdhari but recently have not kept rehat for a while due to problems in my personal life, i have not done anyhting bad like do beadbi of my kes or eat meat or any of the 4 kurehits. But i have not been doing my nitnem/amritvela/kakkar rehat- i.e. often I will go days without wearing my kara or kirpan etc and i used to listen to a lot of katha kirtan but now i just watch western tv and movies it's gotten quite bad i feel like i've forgotten my sikhi how can i stop myself from doing all this in the future and what can i do to discipline myself into staying with rehit? do i need to go pesh to panj pyareh? but im scared if i go pesh i will fall off this path again and have to keep going back.. i really love sikhi idk why sometimes one thing leads to another and suddenly i haven't done my nitnem in weeks
  8. Has anyone else read this? I did just recently and it was pretty good and made for a good read. says on their instagram and facebook that all purchases made would fund future sikh projects and make them free too - so thats great! http://thesikhwarehouse.co.uk/product/khalsa-rehatname-bhai-nand-lal/
  9. Hi, I have a few questions and opinions I would like to get off my chest, wondering whether anybody could offer some answers and opinions. Firstly, Is there a difference between tying up ur beard (with gel) and trimming? Is tying up your beard allowed as per rehat? Im a young kesh Dhari Singh and I have a crippling fear of regret, I have never cut my kesh and I know I will regret it if I trim, but I also feel like when I'm old I will regret it if I don't, I kinda just want to make the mistake and atleast experience what it feels like to be an average 20 year old for once, I was very immersed in sikhi when I was a young teen and i don't know why but I have slowly drifted away a little,( maybe because the regret of not doing anything normal as a teenanger got to me.).. I don't wanna let go of sikhi or dissapointed my parents. but at the same time I don't wanna be 60 years old and feel like I missed out on epic experiences during my youth all because I was too scared to dissapointed my parents, When I'm 60 I don't think anyone will care that I had a trimmed beard for a coupe years while was young right? And there have been people worse off who mahraj has forgiven, so why not me if I did it? Also, the more general question I have is, Is it better to be fully in sikhi or fully out? I feel like a bit of a fraud or a fake Sikh , sometimes when I practice sikhi, because I also do things which mahraj wouldn't be proud of ..I'm stuck in two worlds and sometimes I think it's pointless to do both at the same time but other times I think it's necessary to do the good while I'm doing the bad do I can balance out the bad karma with the good (it makes sense in my head anyway) and to keep the discipline, because I knwo some things I do are bad and by forcing myself to keep my kesh I feel like it reminds me that I'm Sinning and that I will need to stop doing Those bad things at some point in life, for example I do things like partying, having s*x, Hav bad sangat, but at the same time I also do good things like listen to Kirtan, do paat ( japji sahib and rehraas atleast) do naam, go to gurdwara , don't smoke or drink, and I also have good sangat who I hang out with too. (But my good sangat doesnt mix with my bad sangat, and I feel like 2 completely different people depending on the group I'm with) i already know that sikhi is the truth and i know that shaheed singhs would be turning in their graves seeing this (and me), right now, sikhi is the only thing that will matter to me in the end, and I promise myself I will be a devout guriskh in a few years (with mahrajs kirpa), but it's kinda like I wanna procrastinate a bit Yano ? Like you know the traditional sentiment of inspirational people telling you to "go out into the world and try different things until u find your passion"...well I feel like because I was already born with sikhi, finding the truth (sikhi)was way to easy... I kinda wanna try some other stuff so I can know for sure myself that sikhi is the truth, I kinda just wanna live my young years a little and then once I'm abit older and I've had my fun then get back ont sikhi 100%..what do you guys think? Im really sorry if I have offended anyone, I know some of you may be reading this in disgust right now but I would really like to hear what you guys think, and start a discussion here because surely I'm not the only one who thinks like this or has ever thought this? And if u don't understand my point of view and want to be angry, please express yourself as clearly and constructively as possible, because I know if I read this like 5 years ago I would be so p*ssed off or just think the op was dumb! But That just goes to show how much our thought process can change... Thanks for reading

    amrit, rehat questions

    Hello. I am thinking of taking amrit but i have a few questions, i will ask the panj pyare about this as well, but i wish to practice rehat before taking amrit. 1. How did you feel after taking amrit? 2. When you did naam simran or nitnem did your concentration increase? 3. what happens if you miss waking up at amrit vela, do you just do ardaas? 4. If you miss amrit vela for more than 2 or 3 days then do you have to go pesh? 5. If you know that, for example, hair will come out when you scratch your beard or legs and stuff but you still scratch it, will you have to go pesh? (some of the pesh topics are making me paranoid) 6. When taking a shower, where do you put your kangha? Do you just put it in your kacchera or something? 7. Do you have to wash your hair everyday? (i will ask panj pyare about this one) 8. If i go to school and uni and stuff and i am not allowed to carry a "big" kirpan can i carry a small one? When i mean big i mean something that i will be able to use 9. Do you guys use 2 kirpans? One for being the in shower and the other one you just wear when not in the shower?? 10. Do I have to do my entire nitnem at amritvela or? (What i mean is that, for example, i did 10 paaths, 5 of them are the minimum paaths i have to do as told by panj pyare but what about the other 5?.

    gelatin in medicines

    VJKK VJKF, Just have recently been prescribed a medicine in a form of soft gelatin capsules for a health condition ive had for many years. I've checked and there isnt an alternative form. I wanted to ask would this break someones rehat or should they not be allowed to take Amrit? VJKK VJKF
  12. Hello, I would like to get SikhSangat's observations on the number of dastar-wearing Sikh women compared to the number of dastar-wearing (non-trimming, sabat surat) Sikh men under the age of 40 (I am most interested in the younger generation). It will be very interesting to see what Sikhs who live in the different part of the world have observed. Please state where you live, and whether your observation pertains to your locality, or if you believe it to be global (or over a wider geographic range than the area where you live). Please state your answer in the following format: "My observation is that for every non-trimming young Sikh man who wears a dastar, there are three young Sikh women who wear dastars" or "My observation is that for every young Sikh woman who wears a dastar, there are four non-trimming young Sikh men who wear dastars" You get the idea
  13. Are there any difference of birth/death programs that we keep in our dharam? We do akhand patth and I don’t see any difference as they all are same. Gurbani, kirtan, katha, langar. Only difference is the end part of the ardas which highlights the program. So there is no difference between happy/sad?
  14. VJKK VJKF I am thinking of keeping a saroop of Sri Dasam Granth Ji in my bedroom. I can read Gurmukhi so I can read it. I asked my mom about it and she said yes and she is taking me to DTF (Soho Road) sometime in the holidays (I think they have saroops of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Ji anyway). I just wanted to know the maryada of keeping Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Ji in my house. My family eat meat etc but they only eat it downstairs but my saroop of Sri Dasam Granth Ji will be kept in my bedroom at all times so none of the meat will go near Maharaj. I just wanted to know if this is alright because if it is beadbi of any sort then I won't bring Maharaj into my house. Its better if Maharaj is kept with the satkaar (respect) it deserves. Please reply soon because I need to know as fast as possible. I will put it in a clean place where it is at a higher level than me. Also, if anyone else owns a saroop of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib then please do tell me what the daily routine of looking after Maharaj is. I really want to be blessed of having Maharaj in my house but if it cannot be treated with the utmost respect then I won't disrespect Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Ji. Please provide as much detail as possible. Thank you. Bhull Chuk Maaf. VJKK VJKF

    Rehat

    VJKK VJKF The SGPC rehat was created in 1925 if I remember correctly. This begs the question what was the official rehat that people used to follow around the time of Guru Gobind Singh Ji? If I search any rehat at the time there are so many different ones. Which one is the official one that was set at that time? Vaheguru Ji.
  16. VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, as Sikhs we are not kill animals and hurt others but why do we wear shoes of leather and have tablas made of goat skin being used in Gurudwaras today? Is this okay or paakhandi? Vaheguru Ji.

    Shaheedi Degh...?

    VJKK VJF Sangat Ji, I'm hearing that Nihang Singhs put 5 leaves of cannabis in degh. What is this for and why is this? I mean cannabis... cannabis. I'm kind of (not) getting to grips what jhatka meat is about but cannabis? Someone please enlighten me. VJKK VJKF

    Reading Bani Fast

    VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, I know some people who are able to read Japji Sahib in about 9-10 minutes. They say they listen to themselves the whole time and they understand and hear themselves repeating the bani. Is this wrong to repeat bani fast? Vaheguru Ji.
  19. VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, my question is straightforward but I have no answer no matter where I look. People do Japji Sahib jaaps all day and night even though it is a morning paath so my question is this. Can I do Rehraas Sahib during the day and also in the morning? Is there anything wrong with this? Vaheguru Ji.

    Havan Maryada

    Waheguru Ji Ka khalsa waheguru ji or fateh According to some puratan Sikhs and Sikh accounts, Havan Maryada was performed by shamshir pita Sri satguru Gobind Singh ji Maharaj. If so, how was Havan performed and what was the Maryada for Havan? E.g what banis were read? Bhul chuk maf Karo ji

    Purataan Rehat Marayada

    Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa! Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Sangat Ji, has anyone got a copy of the purataan rehat marayada where the panj pathay (5 leaves) of sukha is written? Or is it taken from Bhai Santokh Singh's Sri Gur Partap Suraj Parkash? Also, is shaheedi degh the only way of consumption? Meaning, can it be consumed as infused 'tea' with honey for example? Looking to get the health benefits from it but won't always be able to do the traditional ragra. Please don't make this post anti-sukha/shaheedi degh! Akaal!
