I have a detention from school tomorrow, but it is really a intervention. My mom got a text saying it was a detention and I have lied by saying the cause of the detention is because my teacher hasn't seen the HMW in for today (because i had a dentist appointment), where as it is for a bad score in a previous homework.

I know it was wrong but I need guidance. I have asked Waheguruji thru prayer but am looking for an answer.

Ill join you brother. I was having a conversation with my moms brother and he's an athesit. He said when you're in the world and you have to lie to get things done...would you not lie? He kept on pushing it with examples like buying things and bargaining etc...and I kept on saying no...and he came back with better examples and I said yeaaa...but...and he said that's it.

Its been on my mind for a few days now...and now I have thought about and I feel this is what I should've said:

1. Its Guru Gobind Maharajs hukamnama not to lie. Or give false testimony.

2. Vahegurus form is that of Truth. AadSachJugaadSachHaiBhiSachNanakHosiBhiSach so if we are to connect to the Creator then we have to completely get rid of falsehood.

3. If we say one lie we have to say other lies to cover up and this will only push us away from God.

I told him that if we stay in rehit and follow Hukam then Maharaj will keep us away from people and situations where we are prone to lie. And I deeply regret saying. "Yeaa .. but".

I did Ardass too and hopefully Maharaj will bless this papi the Sidak that Singhs should have.

If you can do anything to correct this then go for it brother. Otherwise we can only have pashutawa and try not to repeat the same mistake again.

You could adopt the following: do a japji sahib everytime u lie/ swear/get a bad thought (last one may be hardest) as a tankhaah..... but its your choice....

doesnt mean lie then do paath but if u ever do then do paath to reduce paap

Do the following only if it is truthful:

Tell your mom she raised you well because you are finding it very difficult to maintain a lie. Tell her you also did not want to disappoint her.

Then tell her you are sorry and need to tell her the truth. Tell her the truth. Do your best with your homework. Part of doing your best is never being afraid to ask for help.

You sound young, your conscience here is an indication of your character. You'll be ok.
