What will happen if you want to do 50 different task simultaneously at a time?

I am also a converted sikh and it took like years for me to be a sikh altogether

Many things will come in middle

As you are probably already finding out, unfortunately a lot more arguing takes place on this forum compared to any learning or teaching...

so you call talking about what is Gurmat and what is not arguing, well the next time you dont agree with another post/views, i will remind you that you call it arguing and that maybe you should keep quite and not argue.

I was referring to the forum as a whole, and not this thread in particular. People argue about lots of other things on here, not just what is gurmat and what is manmat. Every Sikh has a duty to educate the misguided, I agree with that and it's important to explain the correct Gurmat way of doing things. But so many times on this forum these discussions boil over into arguments, personal insults, the bashing of other religions etc. I have been reading this forum for many years, and only post every now and then. I never get involved in back and forth arguing or rebuttal of points. If I think something is wrong or something needs to be said, I make my point once and then tune out. Sometimes you can argue your point till you are blue in the face, but people don't want to listen and you can never change their way of thinking. A lot of the time on here, it's like the blind leading the blind.

Also you must have heard saying/metaphor whatever you eat or drink thats what you become.
Diet is very important factor as well- avoid meat/eggs by invoking compassion/dya in you for other beings, spicy foods, wine/alchohol, excessive sugar/caffenine(make you hyper). 3ho have good list of healty hood Eat those but even then eat everything in moderation.

In your posts

first post you talk about concentrating on meditation

second post start reading Gurbani

Third post you talk about third eye

fourth post as above

Fifth post get into meditation instead of drinking.

At no point can i see that you are clearly stating that drinking alcohol is against sikhi, or talking about any of the following questions he has

but instead you keep going on about meditating and refer to drinking alcohol and eating meat as a dietary thing (which is partly correct), rather telling him it is against our Gurus wishes, at no point do you even mention our Guru which is more important than the dietary aspect or any views you may have.

1. Is it turban necessary? I live in Finland and this country is pretty Racist. I dont scare that people laugh at me if I wear it, but I just dont like the way it look.

2. Is it ok to drink wine once in a while? I dont mean to get drunk - I just like the taste of wine and its becoming my hobby.

3. Any tips for meditation? Sometimes I have problems with meditation, I just dont get that chill/relaxing "state". I also have difficulties to open third eye, not sure if these 2 problems has connect or something.

4. I dont get that why we should chant while we meditate, I like to be in silence and just relax. Is it wrong?

I usually chant along when I listen some sikh artist (guruganesha sinhh, snatam kaur etc.)

5. Is it ok if I dont wear Kirtan, kanga and kaccha? I mean I just dont have money for those at the moment, and carrying knife in public is crime in Finland.

6. Is it Tattoos forbidden in sikhism?

Mal veer,
I clearly mentioned this post to avoid:
I quote again in case you missed it:

Veerji you seem to be getting angry by typing in capital,

I think you have got a problem you dont want to admit you are wrong, you do say avoid but as a dietary measure and not that is against our Gurus teaching or do you have a problem saying that or even that you disagree.

Anyway i can see that you are getting angry, you seem to talk the talk but not walk the walk, i will leave it to the sangat who follow our Gurus teaching as apposed their own ideology to decide if you have said in any of your post clearly up until this point that it is against our Gurus teachings to drink alcohol etc.

I was having a debate and my intentions were not to envoke krodh or hurt anyones feelings so

Bhul chuk maf Gur rakha

Not angry bro just in case if you missed it..making it clear..here is another big letters (which i didn't type just increase the font size) because i am really curious..what i do want to know why my post caused an offense to you and why you picked on my post not other members.. while others didn't even mention anything about rehat maryada- kurahit let alone avoiding the kurahit...atleast i mentioned most of kurahits in the posts panj chor in my first post incluing lust and others avoid meat, alcohol..so please be straight fwd let it out whatever you have inside instead of beating around bushes because only after letting the animionisty/dvaish out and khanda batta da amrit can take nivas in hirdaie...i did same in the past it helps...i will probably go for 2nd round soon.!!

Here is what basic of sikh bhaji wrote:

Thanks Gupunknown, - brother Palarmux, my first advice would be to have a look at our youtube channel and see if many of your questions are already answered on there. Dont worry too much about your actions (although its good to give up alcohol etc) but focus more on learning and getting to understand Gurbani (the Guru's words). We have gone through an english explanation of the very first prayer all Sikhs should read every day, the Japji Sahib. Go through that.

Good luck to you and you can join our facebook group (Basicsof.sikhi) for more info.

Sat Sri Akaal

Yet you have a problem with my posts where i clearly said to avoid alcohol ..really? It does not rocket scientist to find out you have issues with me? Can we discuss further via pm bro? Esi gore samne apni community da zaloos kaddi janai aa vaad/vivaad karke, koi parda rakho? My last post on this topic..so we are really going off-topic here.

because you seem to be giving the most advice (nothing wrong with that), except for one post (not yours), no one even mentions Guru ji or that it is against his teachings, instead it seems you are all trying to score points and show how knowledgable you are about sikhi, this is a new person to our religion and we should be putting our Guru first not showing how clever we are.

    • Translated from “Ardas Shakti”, written by Sardar Raghbir Singh Bir. This story is pretty inspiring. ******BEGINNING OF TRANSLATION***********AUKHI GHAREE NAA DEKHAN DAYEE, APNA BIRAD SAMAALE||My daughter (S. Raghbir Singh jee's daughter) was expecting a baby. Since this was her first time, it was expected to be a painful delivery. Till nine months, my daughter’s health was normal but at end of the ninth months, her whole body swelled and became sore. Due to some other reasons too, the doctors did not think that this would be a normal delivery case.When I told the senior doctor that for while, everything in my home had been normal and that Vaheguru had never disappointed me, he started laughing, called the other doctors and said, “Look, Mr. Singh is sure that the baby will be delivered normally.” Other doctors too addressed me as Mr. Singh and told me that they too want the baby to be born by normal delivery but all circumstances are leading towards delivery through operation and that they have to be prepared for that.When the time for delivery came, my daughter was taken to the hospital. All day she stayed in great pain and around 11pm the doctor told me that next day around 4am – 5am the baby will be born and that I should go home now. My daughter had become very weak after enduring pain all day. She called me over and said to me that she does not have power to even do ardaas and that I should perform ardaas (prayer) for her. She said that she could sustain pain anymore and asked me to do ardaas to rid her of pain. I myself was in a state of shock and surprise over the events of the whole day. My daughter had been in pain all day and the doctors were suggesting that she would have to sustain pain all night as well. He condition was very serious at that time.After much persuasion by the doctors to leave for home, I came back home around 11pm, so that I may knock the door of Siri Guru Granth Sahib jee and do ardaas. Before going for home, I went to the labour room (where babies are delivered) and I did ardaas and recited the following shabad with full faith:BILAVAL MAHALLA 5 ||TAATEE VAAO NAA LAGAYEE, PARBRAHAM SHARNAAYEE||CHAUGIRD HAMARAI RAMKAAR, DUKH LAGAI NAA BHAAYEE|| 1 ||SATGUR POORA BHETIYA, JIN BANAT BANAAYEE||RAAM NAAM AUKHAD DIYA, EKA LIV LAAYEE|| RAHAO || 1 ||RAAKH LIYE TINN RAKHANHAAR, SABH BIYAADH MITAAYEE||KAHO NANAK KIRPA BHAYEE, PRABH BHAYE SAHAAYEE|| 2 ||I came home while my daughter and my wife stayed at the hospital.It took me 10 minutes to come home in my car. At 11:10pm I started doing ardaas with folded hands. My idea was that since I will not be able to sleep, I would spend the whole night doing ardaas and simran. Going through this ardaas what I experienced and what I saw, would be hard to explain but I will try my best to write for the benefit of readers of “Aatam-Science” (A Sikh spiritual magazine) what occurred during my ardaas:WHAT HAPPENED IN THE BEGINNING OF MY ARDAASIn the beginning of my ardaas I had a very scary thought. This thought and vision had been created as a result of my faithlessness or maybe it was created as a test for me. I am not sure of this. I think before every spiritual experience, Maaiya tries its best not to let one escape from its clutches. If the spiritual student stays strong and does not falter during such tests, then illusions like maaiya cannot do anything and the infinite power of Vaheguru protects the Sikh.In the beginning of the ardaas this thought came in my mind that first of all, Vaheguru in front of whom I am doing ardaas probably does not exist and even if he does exist, there is nothing he can do about it as the current situation of my daughter is the result of her bad karma from previous life. The inner voice addressed me saying that my daughter must have done some very bad karma in her previous life and for this she will have to suffer. The thoughts came to my mind along the lines that the condition of my daughter in fact is very serious and that what the doctors are saying is truth. I am not going to get anything positive out of this ardaas. Then the thought came to my mind that it was my duty to stick around my daughter who is at deathbed and instead of sticking around with her, I have run home to do ardaas like a coward. Instead of facing the problem, I am looking for refuge a futile thing like ardaas. After this I saw in my thoughts the dead body of my daughter and the thought came to my mind that it is futile to do ardaas for a dead body. I FIGHT BACK THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS OF MY MINDI was very surprised to see such attacks of my mind and got worried. After I saw the dead body of my daughter in my thoughts I cried out, “NO NO NO, this cannot happen! My father Vaheguru is all mighty. My Vaheguru will not consider my daughter’s previous karma. I have come under his protection and he always keeps honour of the ones who come to him. The scene and the thoughts that I had seen are all illusion. My Vaheguru is million times powerful than Maaiya the illusion. My eyes can be deceived, as what they see may be wrong. My ears can be deceived, as what they listen to could be wrong. My daughter can be deceived by illusion of maaiya. The doctors can be deceived by maaiya but I am a Sikh of Guru Arjun Dev jee and I am a Khalsa of Guru Gobind Singh jee. I cannot be deceived (dhokha) by maiya. I know that if Vaheguru wants he can survive us without breathing. My daughter will surely get cured”.After saying out all this, I extended my hazooriya towards Vaheguru and said, “Sache Paatshah, please don’t look at my weaknesses. Cure my sweet daughter. Please prove the falsehood of maaiya”. When the above stated thoughts went across my mind, the previous scary thoughts vanished. My anxious and tired mind was filled with peace and fearlessness. In this new state of mind, I was saying:VAHEGURU JEE KAA KHALSA VAHEGURU JEE KEE FATEH||While sitting in this state of mind, I heard the phone ring. I picked up the phone and found out that my daughter had given birth to a baby at 11:43pm and that the birth was natural and not by operation. Doctors were surprised at this. My daughter and her child were doing just fine. After the phone call, I was filled with gratitude and started reciting the following pankiti of Gurbani:VAARIYA NAA JAAVAAN IKK BAAR||TU SADA SALAMAT NIRUNKAAR||***********END OF THE TRANSLATION************
    • Man. No doubt which Yug we're in for sure. 
    • These poor people are going to be haunted by these memories till their last days. A day probably does not pass without them remembering. 
    • I think that might be true   he really had taken the whole sjw trend to a new level, before him no one used to do it like he did. On top of that he uses social media to show everything.   Hes really set the trend within the sikh community. Now every sikh wants to be a hero. I think in their heads they think they are bhai kanhaiya and doing a massive sacrifice.  SJW then love uploading photos onto social media and getting all the likes. 
    • Has anyone had any similar experiences by doing 5 sukhmani sahib?
