Sikhi Camp 2005!


Recommended Posts

Sikhi Camp 2005...Its back!! :doh:

Sikhi camp has been a constant source of inspiration for young Sikhs

since it started almost a decade ago. The camp has provided a chance to meet

young Sikhs from all over the UK and Europe.

What is it? it's a residential action packed 6 days aiming to create

an environment that is unlike anything else out there.

Sikhi camp has a simple aim: to bring unity in our community by

sharing time and experiences with young Sikhs from all over the UK.

Every Sikh is proud of their heritage and wants to learn more but they don't want to be preached at.

We understand this, that's why an average day at the camp

is mixed between short talks, discussion groups and then the whole

afternoon is full of cool activities like abseiling, rifle shooting,

assault courses, playing football and of course: eating chips and

beans. :doh:

So if you have always wanted to learn a bit about Sikhi but not from

some old guy who just about speaks English come to the camp and experience

it with people from your generation!

Who's it for? anyone over 16 who is interested in learning the basics

about Sikhi in a friendly, chilled, non-judgemental/non-preachy environment.

It doesn't matter how religious you are. It's all about how keen you are to learn!


Why should I go? don't be stupid! Its only 50 quid for 6 days on a

beachfront location (It's an army base but don't get scared we won't

be sent to the Middle East when it's over.) with loads of fun activities and

inspirational talks/discussions...You've been stressed all year with

college/uni/work, chill out and de-stress at Sikhi camp! :doh:

Still not convinced? visit British Organisation of Sikh Students at

www.boss-uk.org and www.sikhicamp.org for the photo gallery of

previous camps…check out all those sunny, happy, smiling people

enjoying themselves! :doh:

OK! OK! So I'm convinced!! How do I apply? wise move, visit

www.boss-uk.org for an application form, but apply soon!!! The

deadline for applications is

1st of JULY 2005

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
