am i the only one that thinks ITS PERFECTLY FINE TO TAKE CHANGE!!

i mean common.. !!! first of all ur not GIVING money to Guruji!!!! Guruji doesnt need your money .. its for the Gurudwara so there is enough langar and the kids are educated and bills are payed and all the things are taken care of for the sangat...

so a person isnt crazy rich or only has big bills!.. can we stop judging them.. they are noT STEALING!!

Exactly veerji..when we place money it is NOT for Guroo Jee..it is for the gurdwara expenses, building fund, rumallas, books/supplies, etc. When you matha tekh you do it with nimrita..how could you give or take money from Guroo Jee? Akal Purakh is the banker/trader of this world and when we bow down..it is truly our head we give..

So taking change from the Gurdwara is perfectly fine, we are no one to judge if a person puts $1 or $20..how can we think of such things whilst in Guroo Jee's presence?

Chardee Kala for all...

I agree with most of the sangat here that we should have get the change before we comes to Gurudwara sahib. My father always make sure of this before go to gurudwara sahib.

The other awkward scene when some body opens his or her wallet in sangat or near to golak and take out the smallest currency note or coin they have to put in guru jee dee golak.

However I also feel the real fights among the so called committee members all over the world esp. India is due TO THIS GOLAK , GURU SAHIH HOWEVER SAID "GARIB DA MUH (MOUNTH) , GURU DEE GOLAK"

bhulla chuka dee maufai

Jio, good points. I agree wit a bit from everyone.

Everyone should have money before coming if not, then i guess its ok to get change like some have said it is to the gurdwara for their expenses. Im sure guru ji wouldnt mind if a person put a $20 or .25 cents.

A person may put a 20 but he may have all greed in mind, want this, want that, but a person putting .25 may have all pyar and nimarta, and guru ji loves that :wub:

Another point is....

Who are we to say .. why did he only put $10 or $1. How does one know how much he gave before. What if he is matha taek'n twice? What if he gives more in charity, daswandh than a common man? For all we know, he may be all open heart in money. Maybe some are getting change to use at a good cause somewhere else. Now i know some, well MOST, do not do this, but why should we judge one?

Myself, like MKHALSA veerji, hated getting change too. Its like ya it came to my mind sometimes to just give guru ji da whole money. But aagya is aagya of parents, i was small but always obeyed my parents.

But great points by everyone .... :TH:

    • The muslims cannot really do much in Leicester so they picked an easy target in Birmingham.  And they use what they are good at which is the numbers game.  I wish there was a community that breeds at higher rates than the muslims so that when the muslims try to get their numbers that they get out-numbered by another community.  As to your post that you mentioned about us Sikhs being outnumbered by mobs from other communities is that although we are quite a docile race, we have a knack of being extremely well organised and disciplined when the time comes and this bodes well when tackling an unruly mob particularly when being outnumbered.  It's like some kind of dormant gene that gets activated. You saw how quickly our community galvanised during 2011 riots, how quickly during the Kisaan protests. Like MrrSingh said we are a walking contradiction. 
    • From what happened last week it looked like the Hindus started it and the muslims ended up on top with what happened in Birmingham.  You're right apne don't really bully minorities, we are racist though. I can't blame the Hindus to some extent when it comes to suls. Their leadership let them down big time allowing huge amounts of suls to stay behind after partition. We've been fortunate to have an almost sul free Punjab, we only know what suls are like due to living next to them in the west. Punjab has the lowest percentage of suls in all of India. Suls like to push the boat to see what they can get away with and when they go too far like they did in Myanmar recently, the majority community finally has enough and retaliate. If they were a community that kept their head down and worked hard no one would hate them but they just try to push their way of life on all of us. They have conflicts with every other religion. 
    • One major factor for the Hindus are doing what they are doing in the UK is the political backing. The Hindu political leadership in India is comprised of Gujjus and it is the Gujju diaspora that is spearheads in countries abroad.  Even if we had this level of political backing, we Sikhs don't do what these two other communities do.  We are wired differently. Even if we were an overwhelming majority, we don't pick on other communities.  But for some reason, these two other communities love to use their numbers.  But as a neutral observer, it is interesting to see Muslims in the UK on the back foot.  The Hindu lobby groups seem to have turned the tables on the Muslim lobby groups.  The police and local authorities seem to protect Muslims but they look quite helpless.  Muslim lobby groups seem to infiltrate systems from a lower level but the Hindu lobby groups seem to be excercise from a higher level. So it seems to be top-down vs bottom-up.      
    • The thing is that Hindus will only give it the large when in a significant majority and as soon as the numbers turn against them they pretty much give up. The only exception I've seen to this is the Tamil Hindus of Sri Lanka. They also have appalling unity, did the Punjabi, Tamil, Nepali Hindus come to help the Gujaratis? Nope. Yet you had Arabs and Somalians helping the Indian muslims and Pakistanis.  Sikhs historically have always been a minority in India and even greater Punjab so we are used to fighting when the numbers are against us. Just look at how we retaliated against the muslims of UP who heavily outnumber us when they tried to take our land. Even in Hyderabad Sikhs have fought against Muslims who make up a huge amount of the city.
