Should sixteen-year-olds select a faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives after taking an aptitude test.

Daas watched the movie a long time ago, and apparently main person had the unique test results of being multiple castes, (equivalent to Brahmin, Khatri, Shudra, Vaish), but according to Gurmat each human is allowed to do whatever they want, not be obedient to a caste, but liberation from it. A Sikh is higher than the highest caste,

Factions can also be based on virtues like

Daya, Dharam, Himmat, Mohkam, Sahib 

Or

Ajit, Jujhar, Zorawar, Fateh.

It is not possible for an individual to have all these qualities.

In order to become an expert we choose academic subjects same principle should apply to virtues.

The first two books were good. The last book was crap

I lost interest after the second book in all honesty, Seems like there's a nice trend going on in post-apocalyptic society based books. Makes me wonder if people are finally thinking a bit.

Your going to make a new caste system, with the names of Gursikhs? Also for the 4 Hindu Varnas a person can easily be getting knowledge, (Brahmin), be physically fit, (Khatri), have a business, (Vaish), and clean their homes, (Shudra). Ajit and Fateh mean the exact same thing. Zorawar is a word meaning strong, and Juhajar means Shastardhari. (They all can easily be interconnected). And it is possible for someone to have the Punj Pyare qualities, (actually all 15 Bhagats would probably have all 5 qualities).

Humanity is interested in dystopian worlds for some reason, (The Hunger Games series were also popular among people who had an interest in these sad worlds).

you would be incomplete if you only have one aspect ... why divide what is naturally there in all as you progress?

Why are you guys so obsessed with caste.

This topic is not about caste based divisions 

"Faction before blood/lineage"

It is about choosing a particular stream.

Like joining Akhand Kirtani Jatha to learn Kirtan or studying Santhiya from Damdami Taksal or learning Martial Arts from Nihangs.

nah it's programming to expect the dytopian model to become the norm ... anyway Guru Sahiban have already told to expect it and worse and to conquer it through sikhi

Being skilled in only one thing isn't the best ideal either, since you got the idea from Divergent you would notice she could choose any of 3 castes, (factions), among 5 total. In an ideal society, nobody would only get 60% of the choices, (if they got choose), she was born in the caste, (faction), Abnegation, but changed her caste, (faction), at least 2 times.

all sikhs have to learn to do shudh paat, be knowledgeable in dharam, do kirtan , be shastardhari (holding is not the same as being able to use effectively) each sikh represents the parents and the panth - besides all those jathebandis would all say we are sikhs not flanna flanna sikh , we are sikhs of Guru Granth sahib ji and Guru Panth Sahib ji

Did you read about "Factionless".

"There is one more group that is not part of the social classes or factions. These are the Factionless. These are the people who failed to complete their initiation into whatever faction they chose and live in poverty, doing the work no one else wants to do."

In reality people belonging to similar faction or jatha get preferential treatment.

Akj's marry akj, Ddt's help in placements of ddt religious workers abroad.

"Jack of all king of none"

That is the reason system has not produced Khalsa but khasis, pappu's & chakkas !

Where are the dauntless when you need them ?

    • Vaheguru ji ka khalsa Vaheguru ji ki fateh Oh no.Thats a mistake to let them in your house.They probably had bad intentions for you.For example they are jealous or something and by letting them in your house it's like giving them permission to do black magic on you.I think you mentioned before that you get scared to go to a room to do Amritvela?If this is the case please do not fear it.If you let it stop you from going to do Amritvela,then it will stay longer.If you do your 5 banis during Amritvela, it wont be able to live in that environment. You also mentioned that you drank something from them?Honestly,not to scare you but they could have done black magic to the drink.So I would give 2 solutions based on my experience.Firstly, as soon as you get the chance take amrit with your daughter.Secondly do about 5 Chaupai Sahib a day.I will give you an example as to why you should do 5 Chaupai Sahib.Something like that has happened to me before.It went to an extent where when I am in a room,something would start knocking the door and the door would kinda move.So I did 2 Chaupai sahib for only 1 day and then did ardas to Guru ji for protection.After just that 1 day of 2 Chaupai sahib  I have never experienced it again.So if you do 5 Chaupai Sahib for awhile,the spirit will leave your house.Chaupai Sahib is very powerful.Why I'm telling you to do 5 Chaupai Sahib is because in your case it's a slightly bigger problem since it tried to come for you but it will go away.Dont worry and just have faith in the Creator.He will protect his Gursikhs.

    • a lot of it is spent on badal's chaa
    • The Naad is also known as Nam, as Sat nam, as Amrit Bani, as Sachee Bani,  Shabad, Dhur kee Bani, and many other  different terms,  but all referring to the same ultimate reality.   In the Bani we see: ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਬਾਣੀ ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿ ਤੇਰੀ ॥ Anmrith Baanee Har Har Thaeree || The Word of Your Bani, Lord, is Ambrosial Nectar.   ਸੁਣਿ ਸੁਣਿ ਹੋਵੈ ਪਰਮ ਗਤਿ ਮੇਰੀ ॥ Sun Sun Hovai Param Gath Maeree || Hearing it again and again, I am elevated to the supreme heights.   Our Nam Simran as per the teachings in the Bani, is to make us pure enough to be able to have the darshan of  the Jot this Nam/Naad and at the same time eliminate the wax of our sins upon our minds/souls, in order to listen this divine melody within us by His kirpa. That is why  Third Patshahee says: Nam jiske mun vaseeya, vajeh Shabad ganere.   Once,  we get focused with Simran within, then only can we listen the Shabad and can see its unlimited refulgence, known as darshan. The importance of Naad or Nam, Shabad, or Amrit Bani  is supreme, for it is only by listening to it, we are carried to higher and subtler planes of consciousness, crossing maya and Kal. Gurbani tells us: Nanak Nam jahaaz hae, jinee chareeya se utareeya paar. It is by listening this Anhad Bani, or Naad, that we board on the jahaaz of Nam, thus reach our nijh ghar in Sach Khand. That´s it.

    • I’ve heard and read the same on the other akj forum. It’s the feeling of wanting to fight for justice.
