I Want Amrit!

I am 14 going to be 15 soon. Sikhi is my life and I will do anything even scrafice myself. The only problem is that my dad won't let me take amrit. i started keeping amritdari rehit like 2-3years ago and still going. I really want to be an amritdari, I want to give my head to Guruji. My mum also follows the rehit, just waiting for my dad.

My elder sister is an amritdari, she took amrit without telling my dad, when my dad found out, i have seen what happened. I am really proud of her for doing this. That day, I saw how strong amrit was. it was hurtful to see everyone arguing but my sister she proved me how strong amrit is. it just felt so good to see a lioness! It was really weird how my sister took amrit. She was a girl who loved dancing, being the prettiest girl, love being popular, when she suddenly changed, it made me want to change and follow that beautiful path that she was following. When she first wore keski to school, the next day I followed her, when she start doing nitem, I followed her. She was listening to a Katha in Darbar sahib, the person doing Katha kept sayin take amrit sangat. My sister couldn't control it. She didn't think about anyone else but just Waheguru.

Last year when i went Khalsa camp, the experience was speechless, i will recommend you guys to go Khalsa camp or Sikhi camp. Seeing the sangat there, made me want amrit more, each day i want amrit more, my thrist is growing and growing. But you know, feeling that thrist makes me love waheguru even more. Its so special.

I went to the Derby Samgam few months ago. I saw Singhs guarding a room with blessed people taking amrit. That day, I wented to just walk in and say I want amrit. I cried and cried,

I think i am going crazy in sikhi!

I want amrit and nothing else!

I don't know what I should do, when my sister took amrit my dad stopped talking to her, but they talk now with wahegurus kirpa. I am scared that if i took amrit without asking like my sister, My dad might stop us from going gurdawara, and I don't want to spoil my other sister and brother's life, as they also love sikhi.

My dad is not a bad person, he also wanted to take amrit before, but he just need good sangat to keep him up. I don't know how long I can wait anymore. I am just waiting for Wahegurus hukam,

Do it bhanji if its what your heart desires dont look back although you must respect your parents wishes howwever if it will be restricting your spiritual journey than you will have to take that chance which will help you....I also had this issue as my dad was against it and my mum was unsure my brother took amrit first and a year later i also took amrit and my parents have well basically started getting into sikhi alot it will benefit the whole family for the best....but try to avoid any conflict with your parents as they are still your earthly gurus and upsetting them is paap but do something which will benefit you all :D good luck !

i was in a similar position a few months ago, my dad didnt want me to take amrit either. just keep asking him for his permission, and keep telling him how much you want to take it. tell him there is an amrit sanchar coming up in february and you really want to take it and u feel ready for it.

i would advise not to take it against your dads will, for now anyway. keep asking about february amrit sanchar (there are a couple) and see what he says.

it took me about 6 months to get my dad to say yes lol

Guest unknown singh!

I have a similar problem with my mum, I am keeping rehit (well trying to lol) my dad said he will be so happy if I took amrit, but he said just learn your japji sahib which I undertsand, but my mum doesnt even listen to path hardly!! In the morning I was using the grill she asked me if I wanted fishfingers (she eats them) I am just like no way and she shouts at me. My nanaji is amritdhari and he thinks I should eat egg and fish which I dont understand even though he is a good person in my opinion. My mum used to be quite religeous, when I was young she saw me doing paath, she then started doing paath in the morning and listening to kirtan, now she has changed alot! She listens to music, swears occaisonally (even though rarely) I was just wandering what should I do? When I am fully ready and if I take it she will yell so much, she will tell her side of the family (they are all munas, apart from my nanaji and naniji, they are both amritshak) and they will all argue with me :( please what should i do????

I'd say go take amrith without your dad knowing. I took amrith guptly; only my friends and cousin knew till 3 months later when I decided to tell family. Mum was bit mad; ill never understand why & dad and other members of family were really happy. Go for it little sis :) I'd say for strength start moolmantar jaap addition to your nitem. It'll help you loads :)

    • It's been happening regularly to @dallysingh101 for some time. And if you know a certain detail it only makes it more obvious that certain people are being targetted not their content. 
    • I'm confused. Is this a farmer protest issue or a Guru Sahib desecration problem?
    • https://indianexpress.com/article/north-east-india/meghalaya/sikh-punjabi-shillong-sad-megahalaya-governor-7572180/   Sikh delegation reaches Meghalaya, requests Guv to intervene in relocation decision “We shared our concerns and he assured us that no injustice will be done and the residents will not be removed illegally,” DSGMC President Manjinder Singh Sirsa told The Indian Express. Written by Tora Agarwala | Guwahati | October 14, 2021 10:31:08 pm A delegation of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DGMC) with Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik. (Twitter/mssirsa)   Keeping the pressure up on the Meghalaya government to revoke its decision of relocating Dalit Sikh residents of Them lew Mawlong area in Shillong, a delegation of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Thursday requested the intervention of Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik in the matter. “We shared our concerns and he assured us that no injustice will be done and the residents will not be removed illegally,” DSGMC President Manjinder Singh Sirsa told The Indian Express. A four-member team, led by Sirsa — who is also the National Spokesperson of Shiromani Akali Dal — met Malik at his official residence in Shillong earlier on Thursday afternoon. “He said he had already taken up the matter with Chief Minister Meghalaya Conrad Sangma as well,” said Sirsa, adding that they could not meet the Chief Minister because he was out of town. The Sangma-led Cabinet’s October 7 decision to relocate the Sikh community from the area, also called the Punjabi Lane, based on recommendations made by a high-level committee, had drawn protests from the residents, who claim that they have been living in the area since the 1850s, after they were brought by the British to work as scavengers and sweepers in the region. While the government claims that the land belongs to the Urban Affairs Department, the Sikhs say the land was “gifted” to them by the Syiem (chief) of Hima Mylliem – one of the chiefdoms in Khasi Hills – in the 1850s. The land dispute has simmered for decades, with sections of society and political organisations in Meghalaya demanding that residents be shifted to some other area. It took a violent turn in May 2018, leading to clashes between local Khasis and Sikhs of the area, after which a high-level committee was formed to settle it. While Sikh groups have called the move “illegal”, “unjust” and “unconstitutional”, with leaders saying they would take the matter up with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the Meghalaya government has stood firm on its decision so far. On Monday, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong had told The Indian Express that they had “followed due diligence” on the issue. Sirsa said that since a status quo had been ordered by Meghalaya High Court on 9 April, 2021 based on a petition filed by Sikh groups in 2018, the high-level committee had no power to make such a decision. “The residents cannot be relocated without following due process,” he said. In a representation to Malik, DSGMC — an autonomous organisation that manages Gurudwaras, hospitals, educational institutions and welfare of Sikhs — that the Meghalaya government’s decision to take “possession” of the land is an action towards “instigating clashes” that can “spiral into violent unrest.” It also added that the government of Meghalaya asking the Urban Affairs Department to work out a relocation plan may lead to instigating the residents, “without even granting them an opportunity to say anything.” “The unilateral decision of the government in the name of illegal settlers is highly unconstitutional in nature and despite the directions of Hon’ble High Court they are not stopping from going ahead” it added. Gurjit Singh, President of the Harijan Panchayat Committee, which represents members of the Sikh Dalit community in Shillong, said that they felt “more confident” after the DSGMC meeting with Malik. “We are hopeful that the government will rethink their decision,” he said.
    • https://www.thedrum.com/news/2021/10/14/zulu-alpha-kilo-shares-how-it-helped-harley-davidson-protect-sikh-bikers-with-the   Zulu Alpha Kilo shares how it helped Harley-Davidson protect Sikh bikers with the Tough Turban By Awards Analyst - October 14, 2021 The Tough Turban camapign aimed to improve safety conditions for Sikh motorcyclists.   The challenge Harley-Davidson is a brand built on a love for the open road and its riders are passionate for the freedom that it offers. Yet for some riders, that freedom has come at the expense of their safety and their very identity. For Sikh men, the turban is a deeply important part of their identity. For decades, Sikhs who rode motorcycles found themselves choosing between their beliefs and their safety as all Sikh men are required to cover their hair as a symbol of respect and humility. Because traditional motorcycle helmets violate this religious tenet, the government in the Canadian province of Ontario passed legislation in 2018 that exempts Sikh men from the law requiring all motorcycle riders to wear protective helmets. The exemption was a hard-won step forward, but it also introduced a critical question: how could Sikh riders engage in their passion and still ensure their safety while riding without a traditional helmet? This created an interesting and unusual challenge: how to develop an alternative to a motorcycle helmet so Sikh motorcyclists would no longer have to choose between their beliefs and their safety. The strategy If anyone could address this challenge it would be the world’s most iconic motorcycle brand and its largest Canadian dealership, Pfaff Harley-Davidson in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Harley-Davidson attracts riders of all cultures, yet is often perceived to be the choice of old white men. Stepping up to a challenge like this was an opportunity for Harley-Davidson to help a group of riders overcome a big hurdle to fully embracing their passion – and to send a signal about the importance of diversity. The size of the need is large – Canada is second only to India in the number of Sikhs in the country. Through conversations with Sikh riders an interesting historical truth was discovered. In ancient times, Sikh warriors would go into battle with chain mail woven into the fabric of their turbans. This provided protection without violating religious tenets. It sparked our thinking: why couldn’t a modern-day equivalent be created to provide the safety that Sikhs deserve? It also led to the insight driving the initiative: with the right motorcycle gear, Sikh riders could be empowered to protect who they are. The campaign Tough Turban is a marriage of ancient traditions and modern, high-tech engineering. It’s a turban made of impact-resistant materials that also fully respects the requirements of the Sikh faith. A critical step was the development of the turban itself. Armed with a powerful concept, we assembled our team of industrial design experts with experience in 3D printing and composite fabrics used in bulletproof clothing. After a series of prototypes, a final design was developed. About half the overall fabric is normal turban material, but the outer layers include Dyneema, a 3D-printed carbon-fibre take on chain mail, and non-Newtonian foam, which is normally pliable but hardens instantly on impact. These are the elements that make it a tougher turban. With the design complete, the next part of the plan was the communications needed to get the word out. A website was the anchor of the effort. It houses a video that profiles several Sikh riders discussing the need the Tough Turban addressed, as well as highlighting how the turban was actually engineered. Along with the video, open-sourced production files for the turban were published to enable manufacturers anywhere in the world to be able to produce the turbans in their own markets. PR support outlining the initiative launched in early June, including posts on all of Pfaff Harley-Davidson’s social channels. The results The Tough Turban initiative has been a resounding success. Media response exploded overnight with coverage in 171 US media outlets, 54 in Canada, 18 in the UK and 11 in India, totaling 238.8m earned impressions and an advertising value of $2.19m. Quantitative research with people who own or are planning to buy a motorcycle showed a significant shift in perception after they’d been exposed to the Tough Turban initiative: 87% saw Harley-Davidson as more favourable 86% saw Harley-Davidson as more innovative 83% saw Harley-Davidson as more inclusive 85% were more likely to consider buying a Harley-Davidson Three manufacturers have reached out to explore large-scale production, including the world’s largest producer of two-wheeled motorized vehicles. The potential to save lives through this idea is enormous. It could offer protection to millions of Sikh motorcyclists globally.
