Finding Out Who I Am


Recommended Posts

Ok well i was just like to say that i was born into a moderate Sikh family and my cousons and i all were patka/turbans unlike our fathers probably due to the 84 incident however i never knew anything about real Sikhi. Some of my cousons (older than me) take drugs, gamble, sleep around, drink and yet call themselves Sikhs, ive learned alot about real Sikhi in the past few weeks and what i truely believe in since i was hardly taught anything from my parents apart from some main Sikhi history and from the panjabi school i used to go to. The thing is i too am guilty of sins (mainly lust) but my heart has also been touched by the presence of waheguru. Everyday for some reason which i dont know of i keep finding myself thinking of God and everything 'he' has given to me when i have prayed, for 'he' has given me great exam results, a humble heart and much much more. I feel ever indebted to 'him' but i see my family as totally different as in not real Sikhs for my father swears and drinks alot and many of the men in my family call themselves Jatts and hold there heads up high by practising the caste system, my dad makes me go to the gurdwara for free roti every sunday whereas i would rather go on my own accord to listen to the bani. I know it might sound stupid but i have a strong feeling that i have converted to Sikhism and would just like to know about other peoples experiences with their families.

I think that is just beautiful, the Grace that has been bestowed upon you is beyond words. Keep the flame lit, let your Simran(rememberance) of him create more thirst, let it burn within you...pray, beg for such a pain that could only be comforted by his Love...Ask for such a Love that could only be satisfied with Meeting...Ask for such Meeting with the Divine Mother that surrenders your ego and leave only that which is True. Let Shukar Hai, Shukar Hai be your daily prayer.

I am joyous for you my veer or bhen...im so joyous for you.. Wahh Guru

As for your family, let them come to the path on their own. Light yourself first with love and compassion. Fill your cup first so that you may be able to share what have been given with others.

dont treat waheguru as far away.. nor as a "god"..

actually try making them your mate.. someone to talk 2.. someone 2 ask 4 a fava.. dont be afraid of them.. fall in love instead.

JIN PREM KEEYO TIN HEE PRABH PAYO - Those who feel love for him can reach Him.

You are one brave singhni, no matter how bad your circumstances have been you still managed to get this far.. All Guru Ji's Kirpa. Dont worry about anything, it all happens for a reason ie: You may not have been a humble person if you got into Sikhi the "easy way".. if you get what I mean.

just leave everything In Guru Ji's hands - Your best mate :lol:

    • I have had this theory for some while  it is harder to abstain nowadays because we get married so late (into our 30s, or perhaps late twenties at best) back in the day Id be a father by 17 lol  not a excuse, just a interesting thought 
    • yeah I once used that point in a argument with some osho bhagat (from a sikh family) who said derogatory remarks on the other gurus, claiming guru nanak was the only enlightened one and that the rest *diluted* and corrupted guru nanak's message enshrined in japji sahib and the rest were all succeptible to emotions and panj chor (referred to "nis pyare seo neho" to say guru angad was attached to the mortal frame of guru nanak and was depressed when guru nanak passed away but I tried giving him a more accurate translation of the words) the guy kept on copying and pasting the same essay on mahantaa of sri japuji sahib in comments so I confronted him if he believed in japji sahib and then he got more osho type philosophical, basically proving he didnt believe in amrit bani but yeah shocker, the very japji he was praising had its salok composed by guru angad who he was belittling     it all started from him asking whether he was a sikh or a nanakpanthi (neither in my opinion, he was parroting his guru osho's words and I woouldnt be surprised that if osho had flipped his views on guru nanak this guy now would have been slandering guru nanak as well), i remember it pissed me off for the two days we went back and forth lmaoo 
    • I thought everyone knew I forgot which source, but I read it somewhere as a kid  At the moment, I can only recount bhai jagraj singh of BoS saying this a couples times, somewhere in his panj bania lecture or the japji sahib katha sikhs were asking guru maharaj for a morning bani, so guru maharaj blessed them with japji (I believe some were doing asa di vaar, at least as much was pargat by then, in addition as well but I may be wrong)  the sewa of compiling shabads into a japuji sahib was entrusted to bhai lehna (guru angad) at the time of gurgaddi divas of guru angad dev ji maharaj, he composed the salok to complete japji sahib (as the maha mantar was given by akaal purakh when guru nanak went to sach khand abode of paarbrahm kartar and guru nanak replied with the rest of mool mantar; I dont know some may differ with me and say brahmgyani and mahapursh are always in the STATE of sach khand but you guys get what I am trying to convey)   that is all I can recall for now but I will try to do more khoj onto this topic
