Study Abroad, Ashram

Recommended Posts

I am new to the faith and have heard from a friend that there are Sikh communities where one can go to study and learn. They are live-work communities where you are completely immersed into the way of living as a Sikh. I am interested in studying at one but cannot find where they are. Any ideas. Please help!

I'd be interested in that sort of thing too, but haven't really found out about any either.. i know that the 3ho has something like that going on in Española and maybe elsewhere, but i'd prefer something with more sikhi and less kundalini yoga. Here's the website for their ashram if you're interested.. http://www.espanolaashram.com/pages/

I wonder if there are any Gursikh communities like that in India? I'm thinking of a community where you could do agricultural or some other basic work in exchange for food and accommodation and have the chance to learn about Gurbani, Punjabi, keertan, gatka etc. That would be like ideal.. :smile2:

brother why dont you stay with dal panth AKA nihang singhs..you can stay aslong as you want with them..learn bani..learn shastar vidya(science of weapons)..and with the blessings of the guru take amrit and become a soldier of the khalsa army...

Dal Singh Veerji..Miri Piri academy is a joke..i watched a video of their students lately and in a 15 minute interview..not once did they mention sikhi, sri guru granth sahib ji, etc..the whol convo was about kunda-bloody-lini yoga...its like for heavens sake give it a rest....

    • Do you think our guys in the West are as prone to the dramatics as resorting to suicide? I personally think they've thrown in the towel; a quiet acceptance of defeat which is mostly attributable to the broader culture that has compounded the idea that it's toxic for a man to question a lady about her antics. 
    • If he's just going to kill himself on finding that out, that's unfortunate but fair enough. But don't start killing other people as well, including the b1tch. 
    • This is the absolute crux of the matter; to find a girl who's pretty enough to get the lad hot and bothered BUT not too pretty that her attractiveness has made her a target for other lads from the moment, as they say in Punjabi, her jawani char gayi in her mid-teens onwards. Before the undercover brahmgyanis chime in about prioritising kamayi and Gurmukh values, for those of our people who don't float around in their own little Satyug that keeps the rest of the Kalyugi world out (a bit like Trump's non-existent wall), these are valid considerations that should be looked at in detail for the rank-and-file people of our community. If the guy himself is between the 4-7 range of attractiveness, he needs to look for a girl within the same range. BUT Punjabi guys (and men in general) over-estimate their physical appeal. A man, more than anyone, has a tendency to inflate his own sense of being. He finds it very difficult to process that he may not be what he thinks he is. A guy in this 4-7 range (which is the vast majority of males on the planet) going after a 9 or 10 girl is living in cloud-cuckoo land if he thinks even a typically middle-class, middle-income job (£30-60k) is going to keep a top-tier girl placated for the next 40-50 years of her life (or at least until she lets her self go or hits the menopause depending on what comes first. Even then her appeal to men may fade, but her aadataa -- habits -- will be nigh on set in stone. If they're rotten since decades eariler, the guy is in for trouble). I'd go as far to say that even a multi-millionaire would need to be on-top of his game from the day he's married to the day he drops dead in order to keep a 9 or 10 as his wife. Today, more than ever, a girl's history counts so much. From what I've seen, the majority of apne guys live in a world that is detached from reality. They may consider themselves street-smart and worldly, but in many respects their understanding of the world is, IMO, based on an inaccurate simulation of a wider culture they don't truly understand. As such, those blind-spots is where they end up being blind-sided by the unforeseen. Then you've got to figure out whether her jawani had indeed gone to her head quite a while ago, or if she's been sensible with it. The answer to this question, IMO, comes IN PART from studying the immediate family, i.e. the dad, mum, and siblings.
    • If it's that important to you, you better be sharp. If you want to go for a beauty queen who's had guys buzzing around her from young, you might be setting yourself up for suicide. Use your brains to avoid this or you'll only have yourself to blame.
