  1. Gurmit Singh gaurav is doing great sewa of sikhi parchar on jaats. His contact no. is +917009618912
  2. This is quite long so I really appreciate you for spending your time reading. Maybe this is just me getting things off my chest but then again its probably a cry for help i dont even know. Grew up keshdari but never knew anything about Sikhi till like feb2016, up until that point it was just about drinking, drugs, girls etc, and in Jan2016 i cut my kesh for the first time. I liked it because for once i felt no restriction, like i could now live a life thaf id only seen my friends living. But then I found out about sikhi in Feb2016 a month after i cut my hair and it absolutely changed my v

    should i leave amrit?

    Well, I'm 15 and an Amritdhari since I was 10. Since two years a beard started growing on my face and I didn't bother much about it, until now. Teachers tell me that I need to shave, while my peers stay away from me cuz "i look like a terrorist" lol. At first I didn't think it much but continuous pressure by pretty much everyone has made me feel quite depressed. I thought it would be great to tie it, but my parents don't want it cuz they say this is papey-tarkhana da kam lol. my father is an ex amritdhari mona and my mother also removes her facial hair. to be honest, my father had warned me n
  4. I am a sikh girl, I’m 20 years old, I have a pretty good image, I do Kirtan, I do path and I also tie a dastar. I’ve always had many male friends but never felf this wa until recently I met a boy… he isn’t very religious, and still I don’t know why I still feel very attracted by him. We also got a chance by text msgs to confess this to each other. I would have never thought to fall for someone who isn’t amritdhari, but this person really cought me. He wants to meet… and above all this he said he is ready to accept me as I am and that really hit me. SO I know this is all wrong, I have an image
  5. There is also a growing number of Punjabi in diaspora that are converting to Christianity. Wont be surprised if Punjab becomes majority Christian state within 5-10 years or less. Really sad and heartbreaking
  6. Interesting video, thought I would share Talks about Udasis, Nirmlas
  7. I saw a news piece today of well meaning Sikhs providing free langar/aid/shopping to people in southall and slough. Every time i hear of charity and religious groups helping people its always the Sikhs or Christians very rarely I'll see muslims, hindus and buddhists helping non-believers of their faith. Buddhists I don't hear ever doing anything for non-buddhists yet they command a religious following of 500 million+ believers in their ideology. They have 3-4 countries to their name also and generally have a better representation and PR than Sikhs. Afghan sikhs have long complained
  8. Read this blog too https://www.thesikhmindset.com/blog/the-origins-amp-emptiness-of-dil-saaf-ideology
  9. Not that long ago, having a "Sikh" CM who wasn't a full keshdhari Sikh would have been a shocking development. Nowadays, it's not even worth mentioning. Tomorrow, the CM will be a mona with some stubble who wears a pagh in public The day after, the CM will be a mona without a pagh Next week, SGPC members will be allowed to trim Meanwhile, clowns like Deep Sidhu are held up as panthic heros This is a community in freefall that doesn't have any standards. Degenerate behavior has become so normalized that nobody even notices anymore.

    Issues in the Sikh Panth

    How can we deal with issues facing the panth? Ignorant youth is a major one, parents are not putting Sikhi first. So many Sikh youth can't read Gurmukhi outside of Panjab, let alone understanding the message of Gurbani. Sikhs are adopting practices and ideologies against Sikhi, especially overseas. Seeing Sikhs like this is dispiriting for the future of the panth.

    Mustache

    I'm an amritdhari girl and I have a very light mustache but I do have one. One of my cousins randomly pointed it out and It really made me feel ugly and like a man.
  12. First and foremost, Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh and Sat Sri Akaal. The video below is a interview of Sardar Bhai Jarnail Singh Ji, a trailblazer and iconic figure for the Sikh panth who passed away due to complications of Covid-19 and/or shortage of oxygen as witnessing/reading his tweet on Twitter. I do believe that in foreign nations like incredible India known for being the most vile and having the corrupt authority system, L. Sardar Jarnail Singh did the right thing of hurling the shoe at the congress party member many years back and he vividly and vocally states in his
  13. 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
  14. Waheguru ji, this might be my first question on here, but I always feel weird skipping 85% of Anand Sahib during rehraas. Is it okay to include those 34 pauris when I do rehraas? (I have done this a few times before). I am aware that several sampardayi include more and more dasam bani, but chhota anand sahib is something every dal and sampardayi agrees on (as far as this agianee is aware of) so I am not sure whether it is okay for me to bring this up or do on a personal basis either.
  15. 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 surv
  16. http://www.sikhpolice.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=102 Any thoughts sangat ji on this video or the auxiliary article?
  17. What are missionaries? are they sant samajis? are they freelance and independent parchariks not affiliated with any puratan sampardayi/panthic organzation? are there any good missionaries? I have mostly heard bad stuff about these guys and they are usually a negative connotation. was singh sabha missionary? was bapu teja singh bhausaria the first missionary or so (was he one)? are most missionaries basically shankadharis and faithless folks like baljeet dehli, harjinder uk, neki (more of a commentator), dhadhrI? waheguru jio
  18. If there is one thing that draws people to Sikhism it is YOGA. Lets take a look at the most successful Sikh missionaries in the west. Yogi Bhajan - His name sounds half like yoga. Just a coincidence. But this guys method was simple. First start up classes on yoga. He knew the west is obsessed with the whole yoga thing. Next slowly bring them to Sikhism. So why dont we start doing something similar to this? Obviously we will have our own model. There will not be any kind of 3ho setup. It will be purely 100% Sikh. But first we have to get them interested in the first place. It is evi
  19. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh What is the difference between Taksali and Normal Kashere. I would be very grateful if someone could awnser me
  20. A great book in English giving counterpoints to arguments made by Hindus - http://discoversikhism.com/sikh_library/english/sikhs_we_are_not_hindus.html Also if anyone wants to share any other arguments made by others we can give counterpoints if needed.
  21. Why are so many people against it nowadays? I dont see much controversial about this, other than if some people claim that this is the only way to recite complete swaroop Guru Sahib, or those who say it "enhances" the effect of shabad which would imply that akhand paath is inferior. Unless someone is paying a paathi to do one for something in particular (same thing happens with akhand paaths) and they dont even listen to it and thus treat sri guru granth sahib as a wish genie of mantras; otherwise I dont anything offensive if a person does it themselves or at least with shardaa. Why do some pe
  22. Can someone help me find out where these swaiye are in sri dasam granth, found a interesting article quoting and claiming bhai daya singh ji pyares rehitnama to refer to these along with sravag shabad, dinan ki pritpal, etc. Most of these commonly recited swaiye are present in sri akaal ustat so if anyone can find these two before, please provide feedback on this forum waheguru jio.
  23. How did the singh sabha movement converted so many people into sikhi? I have thought abt it various times and have heard from many people that singh sabha movement helped to get many people into sikhi.
