WJKK WJKF,

I want to become a granthi and serve my guru but I don't know how to. I don't read fluent gurmukhi, sometimes skip nitnem, and don't know a lot of gurbani. I live in US and don't have kesh. I don't know kirtan. I don't go to any gurudwara Punjabi school and I cant go. What can I do to become one. Please help me. I really need it.

WJKK WJKF,

I want to become a granthi and serve my guru but I don't know how to. I don't read fluent gurmukhi, sometimes skip nitnem, and don't know a lot of gurbani. I live in US and don't have kesh. I don't know kirtan. I don't go to any gurudwara Punjabi school and I cant go. What can I do to become one. Please help me. I really need it.

veer ji! that's great that waheguru ji has blessed you with the desire to become a granthi because most of us would run away from even the thought of becoming a granthi!

firstly what I would suggest is do what you can so -

1) you should be able to keep your kesh easily

2) start making nitnem your daily routine without fail

3) start learning extra banis i.e. sukhmani sahib, do arthi after your reharas

obviously its going to VERY important that you do your paat sudh so try learning santhiya at home

^^^ Giani Takhur Singh ji is a reliable source!

also listen to Giani takhur singh jis larivaar katha on www.gurbaniupdesh.com because then you'll be able to understand what your read hence you'll do it with pyaar/sharda and also you'll be prepared to answer any questions.....

Then you could start doing sehaj paat maybe ? this way you will learn a lot.

^^^ this is a link to kids from baru sahib doing the most beautiful sehaj paat and the best thing is they have subtitles so even if you are unable to get a pothi sahib you can use this! But if are lucky enough to get a pothi then you can follow the paat on there!

As for kirtan - I'm trying to learn the vajja myself so what I would suggest is that if you don't know anything at all then that's great because you can start from step one!

choose what you want to learn - vajja or tabla or both

or visit www.kirtancollegemp.com

then just start helping out at a gurdwara and hopefully they'll let you join!

I know this may seem a lot but just remember at every step you'll be putting one step closer to Waheguru ji and Waheguru ji will run 1000 steps towards you!

So in other words just keep putting the effort in and Waheguru ji will make sure that the outcome is right!

bhul chuk maaf and God bless you!

please let us know how you get on because it'll just make us feel proud of you even more :)

VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH

Where do you live (not the address, just general vicinity)? There may be facilities in your area you are not aware of.

But as Bhai Savinderpal Singh says - why the sudden urge? From the other post, you also have an urge to do Simran - are you Amritdhari? If not, that would be the first step to getting anywhere with both of these requests.

    • Is this how we want our bretheren to live ? https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/fruit-pickers-fight-back-at-italian-mafia-slave-farms-pznnhrfzq?fbclid=IwAR2PTrOQhMmEFpwOiWppvZ4hbQkq16zKKr0Gl2k8kJGkbRuMPwOle5y2E38
    • they are the ones who started the little metal kirpan on the kangha , maybe somebody should explain to them you cannot do ifazat of anyone with your kanga...
    • Sat Sri Akaal.  So for late reply.  Yes search up searchgurbani.com. Once there select the 3 line (options) on top right corner of page. Select your Granth (Dasam Granth). Then if u want English / Punjabi index. ALL BAANIAS will appear. Select Att Chandi Charitr.  NOTE: Dasam Granth here is much better than getting an app, especially for translation. 
    • Yeah heard many variations of this sakhi. Do you know what the actual source is? The point I was making is, throughout ithiaas, when Maharaaj seeked to change something, especially as big of a sanskaar as this, things have been clearer. I just find it odd that there isn't any Bani with the Sakhi - and - that a marriage ceremony came up only at the time of Guru Ramdas Ji. Big gap. Something doesn't quite add up. Hmm possibly with regards to the Pandit, although Vedic Saloks whilst walking around a Gutka? Idk about that.   Nobody is fooling themselves. For some reason, and I don't actually know why, you want the fire to be representitive of Agni Devta. A fire can symbolise many things. Meanings and definitions change (as is the case for many things within Sikhi itself); it doesn't necessarily mean it's anthropomorphized or personified in the way you want it to be. This is the same level of reasoning people use to reject the use of jyot (and other practises in common) in Gurdwaras.   I've always said, that if Namdharis were normal Sikhs, they would be one of the most rehitvaan, shardavaan Sampardas we have. Their Maryada is solid and they have many good qualities which they put into practise. Plus their Nitnem is big. I've been to Bhaini Sahib and it's really quite a sight. They have this little building where non-stop Jaap/Simran has been going on since like the 1920s. SGGSJ was prakash in one of the buidings as well; was some kinda of triple Akhand Paath going on. And fyi Ajeet, they do believe in Amrit Sanchar and Panj Kakkar, however they don't wear the Kirpan - they were banned from keeping Shastar during Brit rule and for some unbeknownst reason continued to stay without them. They have kept many Puratan traditions going. It's a shame they've fallen in other areas. And before anyone says it, no I am not promoting Namdharis or letting their manmat views off.
    • If I started this topic why does it bother u ? U probably thought I worship radasoami thete are so many fake babe in sikhi to making up fake storylines and confusing khalsa panth
