Change from Guru Ji?

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa

Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

This may seem weird to ask, and it may seem totally fine with nothing wrong with it at all. Sometimes at Kirtan programs, I can't help but notice that someone may put down a $20 bill, bow to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, and then pick up a $10 and a $5 bill (just an example). Let's forget the Manmath in watching how much someone donates, but I was just wondering, is this right? Is there anything wrong with only wanting to put $5 instead of the $20 bill in your hand? I just wanted to get some different perspectives of this matter.

I'm sorry... I was just curious.

Please forgive me for any and all mistakes.

another question:

should Gurdwaras have those things where we can use bank cards... B) ? I mean like i never have money in my pocket...but this really is a stupid question...sorry for going off-course. but it would be cool though....i don't know...the money from Golak is going to go to a Bank account anyway, why isn't it directed payed to the accont...and we don't need to see the maya and these types of things might not happen... :wub:

navdeep singh,

I have always hated this. When I was a kid my family members would ask me to go get change, I would say no. If they forced me, I would go matha tek it and they would get no money back!

Taking change is weird. get change from the bank before you go to gurudwara if you have to.

Sat Sri Akal:

:wub:

First time I waw that, I was about eight. A person had just put down some money and started to take money from the golak. I stared wide-eyed, but said nothing ohmy.gif . Later on, as we were going home, I said to my family, "Hey, there was a person STEALING money from Guru Sahib!". I described the situation to my parents, and they told me about the "exchange program".

Good paranoid times...

:e:

I think it is still taking from guru sahib. You are offereing guru sahib say $20. And then after you offer him that, you take $19 back from guru sahib? you are STEALING from guru sahib!!

would you bring a big bag of atta for the langar and then once its all made into rotis, cart off the boxes of parshadas and leave 2 for the sangat?

    • Explain the differing length of his beard over years and why he kept his face hidden. Wasn't it to hide different phases of his beard regrowth ?
    • There is a group of Singhs in the uk who met with Baba Ji in 1999 when they were doing Tap at Guru Ka Lahore. There are also pictures from this time as well. To say Baba Ji went into hiding to live another life is quite absurd. Ask those who did Seva of Baba Ji when they stayed in California. 
    • here's a discussion from 2014 to provide more context:  Pictures from his funeral in 2008, where his body was taken from midlands uk to Los Angeles note that beard is covered at funeral???    I was active in uk London university sikh societies throughout the 2000s.  I don't ever remember anyone talking about this Sant. Perhaps this was because the sikh socieites back then were anti-Nihang, including BOSS themselves?  (and that is why there were parallel groups such as sikh student) I still cannot judge, there is katha posted from this Baba on this forum on the discussions in the threads I posted. I just cannot judge, however as humans we make mistakes. Even sikhs are not perfect, so I cannot say anything on whether this stuff is true or not.... However, the meeting with Dhadrianwala is rather suspicious. As Dhadrianwala and his uk chela group Harinder and NKJ are involved in those accused activities. Guru Sahib suggests grihast jeevan for sikhs. Even mahapurakh had at least one wife, if not more. These modern sants and prachariks keeping no life partners is promoting a very poor example of sikh maryada, and I will even go as to call this anti-sikh! Although I understand some Singhs choose behingam celibate lifestyle, this has nothing to do with becoming a sant or pracharik! And then the lustful side affects we are seeing in certain personalities due to this supposed celibacy is just awful!!! What are they attempting to prove by misleading sangat into thinking celibacy is some kind of spiritual activity?
    • hi, I know someone from the USA in a similar situation. Please get in touch with me via private message, so I can get them in touch with you.
    • Budha Dal had responsibility to give pahul to the whole panth including Maharaja Ranjit Singh's times. So their maryada would have normally been used and should be authentic. Hajoor Sahib should also more or less keep the same or similar maryada to Budha Dal.
