I still grudingly have to do rakhri since I am an adolescent, but I take it off in a matter of 2 hours
I honestly don't criticize anyone else practicing it, but I just want people to stop forcing me
I dont rok tok others, just the annoying part is "bibi nanaki tied rakhri on guru nanak"
maybe Ill draw a picture of guru nanak in santa's sled helping him handout presents
plus isnt there a picture of guru sahiban worshipping gau mata by rss etc.
as long as misinformation isn't spread and culture/religion are kept seperate, I dont care what people do
Yeah, but that's just my limited understanding of it, perhaps someone who knows more about shastar puja can answer.
Dusherra was celebrated in the Sikh empire. They would do shastar and cannon puja, extra charity, and then mock fighting, where one Singh would dress as Raavan and the other dress like Raam.
so more close to token of respect as we touch the feet of a mahapurkh
or do shastar namaskaar
either way, shastar are our saints as well
so would you say sgpc was wrong to "ban" it
also I request anyone to come to the baba sahib singh thread, I am trying to learn more about nihangs and traditionalists
