I wanna tie dastaar

Recommended Posts

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh

Hello everyone :)

I am a Sikh girl living in Europe and i wanna tie Dastaar, but i don't know how to tell my parents about this, because nobody in my family is wearing turban and I don't know if they are cool with it.

Almost a year ago I started learning Gurmukhi and about Sikhi in generall and now I'm learning Path and Kirtan.

Now I'm not ready for taking Amrit, it's a big descision and responsibility. Sikhi is a way of life so I wanna go it step by step.

How well do you get on with your Mum ? if you are close share what you have learnt about sikhi with her , maybe show her sikh websites/channels you follow , tell how you feel about sikhi , I'm sure she'll understand you are not going through a phase and support you. It might not be her cup of tea but she should be able to empathise wanting to be a better sikh (most women are spiritually inspired  very few are not) . Get her on board first  , then tackle dad ...  Of course if you get on better with Dad go the other way around , most people want their kids to be good humans so I really cannot see them being so hard on you . Keep on touch ... stay in Chardi Kala

I didn't know you have to ask your parents to follow Sihki. Are they not Sihks?

Bro look at her age, she needs her folks behind her not kalesh ...so what is the harm in sharing what she has learnt what she feels now , maybe Guru ji will do kirpa on them too ...

Yeah I already showed my mom some vids of BoS or some Sikh bloggers and I think it's a good methode to tell her about my interests.

Thx for ur advice

    • No but hunger and homelessness are problems today which is why I think @shastarSingh is interested in a variety of things the Paanth could grow, make, forage or hunt that would benefit them and positively impact their lifestyle. Cotton doesn't grow everywhere. So if somebody has a mind to grow their own clothes, or create an export product, interest in hemp makes sense.  Put your mind to trying to sustain Jathas in varying climates from scratch, for self determination or to survive unrest and you'll get his vibe more I think. 
    • Have you read the side effects of pharma? Have you never seen a class action lawsuit against pharma? Have you never heard of pharma faking or bypassing safety and legislative measures? I'd take insulin if I was diabetic in conjunction with all holistic measures.  I'm not against medicine bro practiced properly. That's only a percentage of the medicine practiced however.  Nobody is debating the efficacy of stitches. Nobody goes schizo from Sukha either bro. You're reefer mad. 
    • We live in the 21st Century!  Nihung Singhs bana is made from cotton as it always was.  Nihung Singhs to this day do not use hemp for dietary needs.  Nihung Singhs do not live in houses made from hemp.     Marijuana also carries the risk of triggering one the worst diseases ‘schizophrenia’ losing your mind.  This disease is no good for any Tyar bey Tyar Singh.    The biggest ninda is when you make rituals out practices that were a part of our glorious warriors day to day life.  Indulging in these practices when one not living the life of Nihung Singh is ninda.
    • I have personally never seen any young Nihung Singh excel from using Cannabis but you can’t take my personal encounters and discount anybody’s medical findings regarding the use.  The same should apply to you when you make claims about your encounter with schizophrenia.  The fact is that Cannabis does have a link to psychosis and schizophrenia and this is backed up by research. Regarding modern pharma and negative affects, this is too deep to even converse on.  I do know that when Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj was injured from a wound inflicted by a dagger, a European Surgeon was given the task to tend the wound.  For that time you could say that this was the use of modern medical practice.  I also know that Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj also possessed modern weapons.  This tells us that our Guru was in favour of modern warfare as well as modern medical practices. So my question to you is why are you afraid of modern medicine and why are you on the path to making a ritual of preserving something that was used for specific scenarios of the time. 
    • Who cares when Sukha works and the pharma kills you. At the least reefer madness kids didn't judge you as you died? I've never heard or seen Sukha exacerbate anyone's schizophrenia and infact the schizophrenics I worked with were taking oral cbd solution three times daily.   Have you ever read the known side effects of pharma?
