Darbar Sahib restrictions and questions

Recommended Posts

Recently went to India because of a family bereavement. Whilst there, took the opportunity to go to Darbar Sahib. I last went ten years ago. Despite being there at 8 in the morning, it was very busy. Seem to be doing lots of work at the front.

Seems you can't take photos whilst in Darbar Sahib. I understand in the main hall with Guru maharaj but we have in the past taken photos whilst upstairs at the top. We weren't allowed to do this.

Also you could obtain a saropa from maharaj but now you have to go somewhere else and buy it?

Around the complex, there are lots of inscriptions, many of which relate to declaration of xyz donated this much to the Darbar Sahib. Is this practice still ongoing? Why was it allowed in the first place? I didn't get as much time to read all of the other inscriptions.

    • I won't dispute that you got yeast in India in 2015 from yeast flying around. But if you look at the wording of the original poster, BigTera, that's not what he said.  He implied that if you wear a turban, you'll get "yeast formation" as if it will spring up spontaneously: "All that heat and sweat from wearing a head covering all day gets trapped causing excess moisture and itching build up which makes dandruff worse. ie yeast formation." That's what I said doesn't happen, even in India. There are 1.3 billion people in India. 1.3 billion don't have yeast. There are 25 million or so Sikhs in India. Maybe 10 million keshadhari. 10 million don't have yeast. Some certainly do have dandruff or other problems, but so do non-Sikhs in the West. I mean, who do you think is the market for Head & Shoulders Shampoo? It's false and a slander on Guru's form to suggest that wearing a turban with long hair necessarily leads to dandruff and yeast.
    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh ji. Upon seeing a forum, I decided to get the sangat opinion too. I myself am a teen. I am 15. I love to go to gurdwara camps because you get a lot a laha and you get to learn how to be a better person. I am speaking about youths in my country Malaysia. When I go to camps, I speak to many people. They all become my friend. I am not sure of the male gender tho but I have a few guys and girls asking me if I am single or if I have a crush on someone or if I would like to be in a relationship. I always say to them that I am not here to find a partner and I am very very opposed with this type of thinking. I don't like it at all when I got to camps, only to find out the youth are interested in all nonsense about boyfriend and girlfriend and crush etc. 🤦 There some amazing souls too that I meet during these camps. Some youth like me also do sewa and come to camp to build a stronger relationship with guru maharaj. I am very blessed to have met these type of youth too. Probably I have matured thinking. I don't know but sometimes it's upsetting that it's very rare I get the true sangat from going to camps. For an instance, in a camp I would have to mix around people my age ( in the teens) and I can't be sitting around people with the age of 20's above. It would look really odd. But maharaj does his kirpa and I always prefer sitting in the darbar rather than anywhere else because no one can disturb me there and many people avoid talking rubish in the darbar sahib because guru maharaj is watching them.what they don't realise is guru maharaj sees them everywhere, in the Langar hall or in the park. Writing this I have made a lot of mistakes, I am not good,no one is bad. Please forgive me sangat and teach me so that I can be a better person.     
    • Yeah, during this days, i have been closer to my elder sister as she always guides me how to tie a dastaar and she always invites me to rehraas sahib together. Eventough I am a little introvert, maharaj definitely will do his kirpa. Now I am wondering,how did my sister walk through the path because she was the first one in my family to be blessed with amrit. It must be really hard for her. It's easy for me tho thanks to maharaj. Anyways,thank you dear sangat for your advice and support. Maharaj always bless true sangat like you phena ji.
