Whenever you see a Sikh doing wrong then use that as a premise to become a good Sikh , thus achieving bliss and proving that good Sikhs do exist.

Leh khalsa ji, dont judge any one, everything is goin on in guru ji hukam. Remember in this life n this world, only ur relationship with guru ji matters, ur role model is Guru Granth Sahib ji. Hum nahi change bura nahi koye!Therefore, what others do shouldnt bother you, lifes too short for us to see who is being a good gursikh or bad, satgur jaani jaan han ! Just forget all this and focus on ur jivan and bhul chuk maff

I understand this to a certain extent, but I feel a little bit defensive at the same time. The entire Khalsa panth isn't corrupt, so no matter where you are, there are bound to be some true Gursikhs. What do you mean when you say it is all about ego? 99% of peoples lives on this planet are about ego. Ego is what separates us from Waheguru. If none of us had haumai, we'd be jeevan mukht! I'll be the first to admit that I have ego. So am I automatically putting you off?

When I go to the Gurdwara, yes, I see corruption. But at the same time I see the bibia that come every single day to clean the toilets, I see the babeh that come to the langar hall at 4am to make daal and roti, I see parents coming with their children before school, I see young professionals coming before and after work to see Maharaaj and get Satgurus blessing, I see the elderly that can barely walk, taking 10 minutes to matha tek just for their head to touch the floor in front of their Guru.

You see what you want to see. If you want to see good, you will see it. It is there.

Also, with regards to receiving amrit: you will know 100% when you are ready. There will not be a shadow of a doubt in your mind. Do not ask for amrit if you have any doubts. Only ask for amrit if you can't live without it. When every single thought is consumed with your thirst for amrit, then you are ready. Until then, do the best that you can in terms of personal rehat. And take the good from any given situation.

You will find bad and good everywhere, that does not mean we judge them. Even if some of them are proud they may have a good heart. We are all imperfect and we are aiming to become perfect ie possess compassionate, loving, caring, sweet speech etc through Naam and Gurbani.

ਸਭੁ ਅੰਤਰਜਾਮੀ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਹੈ ਬ੍ਰਹਮੁ ਵਸੈ ਸਭ ਥਾਇ

God is the Inner-knower of all hearts; God dwells in every place.

ਮੰਦਾ ਕਿਸ ਨੋ ਆਖੀਐ ਸਬਦਿ ਵੇਖਹੁ ਲਿਵ ਲਾਇ ॥੬॥

So who should we call evil? Behold the Word of the Shabad, and lovingly dwell upon it. ||6||

ਬੁਰਾ ਭਲਾ ਤਿਚਰੁ ਆਖਦਾ ਜਿਚਰੁ ਹੈ ਦੁਹੁ ਮਾਹਿ

He calls others bad and good, as long as he is in duality.

ਗੁਰਮੁਖਿ ਏਕੋ ਬੁਝਿਆ ਏਕਸੁ ਮਾਹਿ ਸਮਾਇ ॥੭॥

The Gurmukh understands the One and Only Lord; He is absorbed in the One Lord. ||7||

We should just focus on ourselves and to make ourselves pure. We could only judge another if we think we are perfect. We should always assume we ourselves are imperfect with faults and that we need to make ourselves virtuous. Here, this is how we should view ourselves -

ਬਾਬਾ ਮੈ ਕੁਚੀਲੁ ਕਾਚਉ ਮਤਿਹੀਨ

O Baba, I am filthy, shallow and totally without understanding.

ਨਾਮ ਬਿਨਾ ਕੋ ਕਛੁ ਨਹੀ ਗੁਰਿ ਪੂਰੈ ਪੂਰੀ ਮਤਿ ਕੀਨ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ

Without the Naam, no one is anything; the Perfect Guru has made my intellect perfect. ||1||Pause||

ਅਵਗਣਿ ਸੁਭਰ ਗੁਣ ਨਹੀ ਬਿਨੁ ਗੁਣ ਕਿਉ ਘਰਿ ਜਾਉ

I am full of faults, and I have no virtue at all. Without virtues, how can I go home?

ਸਹਜਿ ਸਬਦਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਊਪਜੈ ਬਿਨੁ ਭਾਗਾ ਧਨੁ ਨਾਹਿ

Through the Word of the Shabad, intuitive peace wells up; without good destiny, the wealth is not obtained.

ਜਿਨ ਕੈ ਨਾਮੁ ਮਨਿ ਵਸੈ ਸੇ ਬਾਧੇ ਦੂਖ ਸਹਾਹਿ ॥੨॥

Those whose minds are not filled with the Naam are bound and gagged, and suffer in pain. ||2||

In the above shabad you will notice it says without good fortune we will not be able to obtain the richness and wealth of Naam. Thus, we will not obtain peace in our mind and life. Therefore, we have to patiently and continuously try hard with a daily practice of Naam and Gurbani at Amritvela (2am-6am), in the evening and try to remember Vaheguru all day. At one point the peace will come and so will the experience of Naam.

I have a friend who is a philosphy major and he does not want to be amrit dhari for the same reason, but the thing is worry about urself see if sikhi is something that u REALLLY want and if u do, do the research find out how a sikh should be, dont worry about other people, there are always good and bad in every religion.

Remember what you see at the Gurudwara aren't the only people/aspects that are related to Sikhi. Find out about Singhs who devoted their entire lives to Sikhisim by taking Amrit and are respected throughout the world out. All those are mentioned in the daily Ardaas. Make them your role models. You're right though. Alot of us have diverted from the path but know that God knows how you feel. As long as you can wake up in the morning and look into the mirror and be satisfied with what you see, then you're good to go.

What penji said above is 100% correct, the reason we are all here is bacause of ego, including you. When you say you see these singhs singhneea and kids with dumalleh & kirpans but they are corrupt and impure isn't that your ego talking? Mahraj is antarjami and knows the 'real' inner state of everybody, what you think you know or see in them is in actual fact your own insecurities speaking via your ego, to pass judgement on someone's inner state then use that as an excuse for not taking Amrit shows that you don't have a control or understanding over your own ego. Being mukht from ego is high up stuff, its a journey you go on after taking Amrit, you don't become jeevan mukht & then take Amrit! Everything is dictated via hukam which is according to your karam. If these singhs singhnea and kids are in dumaale & amritdhari it's because they earnt that, if u are searching for an 'easy' life the reason it's not easy is because of what u earnt via your karam. And my advice to someone seeking an 'easy' life is 'don't take Amrit'! If all you want is an easy life, Amrit ain't for you in my opinion, being amritdhari definitely ain't an easy life. Only those with gurus blessing realise this path is thinner then a hair and sharper then a double edged sword but still walk on that path! Anyone seeking the easy way out is bound to be not of a level a true Singh should be.

    • Lol. Way to be late to the party there Ravi. 
    • The liberal mafia attacking Amaan Baali because he committed the ultimate sin of standing up for the Sikh community in Kashmir and told the truth of the grooming of Sikh girls. Let's look at the background of these liberals who are now attacking Amaan. Monica Gill - failed model latched on to the Farmers agitation in order to gain more exposure and credibility. On the grooming of the Sikh girls in Kashmir she was solidly on the side of the paedophiles. She promoted the Quint narrative that the Sikh girl was an adult even when the paedophile admitted that he had started to target her when she was 12/13. Her sister apparently 'researched' the grooming of Sikh girls in Kashmir and found 'no evidence'!  Ravi Singh KA - we all know about him and his liberal agenda and his main focus on using the Panth's money to help our enemies and gain him a Nobel prize.  This Angadh Singh Khalsa guy - another liberal mupp.et using the Sikh identity to further the cause of the Jihadis. here's an article about him- his main claim to fame- being a dhimmi and helping in the Kashmiri plan to turn Kashmir into an Islamic state like Afghanistan. What could possibly go wrong for Kashmiri Sikhs when that happens? His views on the grooming of Sikhs - he is 'nuanced'! How Kashmir's Fraught Political Journey Led a Young Sikh Man Into Activism (thewire.in) You can judge the value of a person to the Panth by knowing the background of the people  who are attacking him.       
    • Is that Surrinder Shinda in the video?
    • There is a new Muslim bhangra singer from UK called Raf Saperra. Not only has he made a music video where he is lusting after and flirting with a Sikh girl who has a prominently displayed kada, but the song has been produced by so called Sikh Sukhshinder Shinda and the background of the video is full of so called Sikhs wearing kaday, egging on the Muslim singer to flirt with the Sikh girl and sing about her lustfully. Astonishingly there is an old Baba with a long white dhari and white dastaar in the video as well.  I have not seen one comment on the YouTube page that is concerned about this. I have also noticed that as part of his image in general this singer has avoided highlighting he is a Muslim, only reluctantly alluding to being from West Pakistan during an interview when asked.  Instead our so called Sikh people are all backing him up and featuring in his videos wearing huge kaday while holding alcohol bottles. There is a blurring of lines here with regards to identity which is normally used by this group to take advantage of our people. Our own people are stupidly helping this cause.   There are a few of his bhangra videos which also feature smoking (Muslim Pakistani  culture) which will probably confuse Apne thickos into thinking this is now a normal part of our own culture. They are making bhangra videos without making it clear they are Muslims and subtly putting their own culture into it. What has happened to these people's zameer?   This is the video.
