Reasons we should never compel others into Sikh way of life

Recommended Posts

Sangat Jio, 

If you're an Amritdhari great. If Keshdhari good. Keep on doing what YOU'RE doing. I know a close friend of my father. She, her husband and their father are all practising Sikhs (their dad passed away and these two are late 50's). However, I am ashamed and saddened to say this, they boasted great lengths of being Amritdhaaris, so much so they would literally force and compel others into taking Amrit. Many reading this may be picturing they put a sword/ shotgun to a mona/ Keshdhaari's head and threatened to them to take Amrit... DON'T WORRY! Wasn't that dramatic. 

The woman's a close friend of my father, due to Business reasons they often would see one another. But the meeting's reduced greatly today. Anyways I do not know about my father but my mum? She felt forced into having taken amrit about 20 years ago. She had to endure "Your husband's amritdhaari why aren't you?" Apart from the friend many more other old buddias were also an influence like this on to my mum. 

Now, tough hearted women can deal with such people that force them. Okay once, twice you may tell someone to go get baptised but constantly??? THEN the tough hearted women/ men has to bring out her tough side and shout and yell at them to "Stop pestering me!" or "Am warning you, stop forcing me!" In a loud and clear voice. Unfortunately, my mum was not that tough hearted and carried on listening, hoping one day they'd stop... But no. My mum too ended up taking Amrit. Today my mum talks about leaving Amrit behind but she feels she cannot (scared of after death more than husband). At the same time she might? My mum's in a dilemma. 

My mum had told my father to keep hair but at least don't take Amrit. He took Amrit. More than the woman and her husband, the woman's father in law was the WORST! Any monis that came to him during house prayer sessions he would not even look them in the eye, just sit their with a big frown and hope the monis left. He treated moni kids in the same manner. He qualified himself as "Anyone wishing me to even smile on them must keep hair." The clever folks never or hardly attended house prayers. My father had made every effort to attend ALL functions and took my unwilling to go mum. 

END OF THE DAY AFTER THEIR FATHER DIED...

Slowly all the grandsons (aged young kids and the then teens) cut all their hair. Nearly all grandsons are moni/ trimmed beards. Only one granddaughter is practising and one granddaughter HAS CUT ALL HER GAIR AND MARRIED A WHITE MAN!!! I REPEAT SHE MARRIED A WHITE MAN!!! THIS IS THE FRIEND'S VERY OWN DAUGHTER!!!! SANGAT JIO! Let this be a lesson for showing so much Ahankar. OKAY! If you wish to tell others just tell them once to take Amrit. If you really want to tell then hold programs at the Gurdwara/ become like a Giani ji or a techer where you take out time explaining Sikhi and Amrit DO IT IN A NICE WAY! The effected Sangat will have so much kirpa where they take Amrit thanks to you. You taught them, gave them reasons. 

But the way these 3 did it? They JUST stated to take Amrit to anyone. LOOK WHERE THEIR EGO GOT THEM! Today these 2 don't dare mention to anyone to take Amrit. After all their kid's fiesta they stopped stating the obvious of Amrit, long hairs and "What if you die tomorrow?" emotional blackmails. REQUEST! If you want others to take Amrit and feel the need to tell them hold programs of Katha and Kirtan at the gurdwara. If sangat turns up it means they're already interested in Sangat, Simran and seva. Teach them about the 10 Guru's, translate to them the Guru Granth Sahib, talk about Amrit, talk about society and Brahm Giania da jeevan in a discussion session. 

IF they're taken Amrit/ kept hair fantastic. If not just think "Hey, with Akaal Purkh's kirpa I am merely doing my part and they'll take care of the rest." Don't get saddened seeing the SAME mona walk up 10 years into the sangat and think "Does this person even pay attention to my katha?" I was ever so fortunate to have such a teacher. I was inspired to take Amrit and not compelled. Even today I feel happy and with Kirpa I keep doing what am doing. The reason I walked into the katha program was because it as in English, many other youths were there and the Gurdwara gave the platform where katha was held in English by the teacher, we learned about Seva, Gurbani's hukmnama was translated and discussion of Sikh History was told. THIS IS ONE WAY OF TELLING OTHERS ABOUT AMRIT, BUT SHOULD THEY TAKE IT OR NOT TAKE IT AND STILL DO SANGAT, SIMRAN AND SEVA SHOULD BE LEFT UP TO THEM!!! 

Let's face it, NO ONE can make you happy. Ok so you tell a mona "Keep hair," they have. You then say "Take Amrit," they have. Do you suppose you'll find ANY santokh?? A few months later "Are you doing your Nitnem, no??" Neither you will be santokh and instead you'll feel sad! Then their's the teacher! He see's the same mona walk in ten years and he'll feel pleased that this guy's at least getting Sangat and Simran (Minimum) and how he's not the only guy here, but many others kept hair and many others took Amrit because of the program held. 

SANGAT JIO! Telling others about Amrit is a HUGE responsibility and there's a best way of doing it and an ahankari's way of doing it, which'll get YOU and the people you forced nowhere in life.

moral of the story - be grateful where you are ,and show love to others no matter where they have reached in their journey, be encouraging/supportive for sangat, naam or just listening kirtan but never be pushy. Remember it is a path of love and understanding not an ego fuelled numbers game

You've brought up an important issue. I will agree with some aspects of what you said, and disagree with others below. Don't confuse one for the other.

You haven't given any examples of how they boasted. Could you do so?

As for thinking that what you're doing is great, and encouraging other people to do it, everyone does that. Surfers encourage non-surfers to surf. Hikers encourage non-hikers to hike. Players of Dungeons & Dragons encourage non-players to play. Political activists encourage people to register to vote and donate to candidates. Drinkers encourage non-drinkers to drink. Non-drinkers encourage drinkers to stop drinking. Smokers encourage non-smokers to smoke. Non-smokers encourage smokers to stop. But the only thing that people should not encourage people to do is to take Amrit?

In any case, the amritdhari lifestyle is a wondrous lifestyle. Sikhs believe: 

ਪੀਵਹੁ ਪਾਹੁਲ ਖੰਡੇਧਾਰ ਹੌਇ ਜਨਮੁ ਸੁਹੇਲਾ |

(Bhai Gurdas II, Vaar 41, Pauri 1)

Drink the pahul of the Khanda (amrit) so your life may become suhela.

Now, what is suhela? Here's some quotes to get you started:

ਸਭੇ ਕਾਜ ਸੁਹੇਲੜੇ ਥੀਏ ...

ਸੁਹੇਲਾ ਕਹਿਨ ਕਹਾਵਨ ਤੇਰਾ ਬਿਖਮ ਭਾਵਨ ...

ਤਿਚਰੁ ਵਸਹਿ ਸੁਹੇਲੜੀ ...

ਹਰਿ ਕੀ ਕਥਾ ਸੁਹੇਲੀ ...

The dictionary defines suhela as "easy, comforting, soothing". Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha defines it as, among other things, as sukhi or suhkhdai. Sukh meaning "comfort, ease, feeling of relief or freedom from anxiety, happiness or contentment, felicity, tranquility". In other words, total awesomeness.

That's what Sikhs (such as the beloved Sikh of Guru Gobind Singh ji, Bhai Gurdas II) believe Sikhism to be. And if you thought, as Sikhs do, that Sikhism is so awesome, why would you not tell everyone you know about it?

2. OK, now you may say, alright, fine, everyone on this earth encourages other people people to do what they're doing, but the one, solitary group of people prevented from doing so is because is Amritdhari Sikhs because ... Sikhs don't preach? Well, I'm sorry, but that is just made up, I don't know where people got that from other than from their nether regions. If you think that you're not supposed to tell others about Sikhism, Satguru doesn't agree with you:

ਆਪਿ ਜਪਹੁ ਅਵਰਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਵਹੁ ॥

Chant the Naam yourself, and cause others to chant it.

ਗਉੜੀ ਸੁਖਮਨੀ (ਮ: ੫) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੨੯੦
Raag Gauri Sukhmanee Guru Arjan Dev

As any speaker of Punjabi knows, you have verbs where you're doing something, like ਲਿਖਣਾ (to write) and then you have the causative construction like ਲਿਖਾਉਣਾ (to have someone write, to cause someone to write). Similarly, ਜਪਨਾ (recite) and ਜਪਾਉਨਾ (cause to recite). Now "cause to recite" doesn't mean at the edge of a sword, but still it means having other people recite (not keeping it just to yourself, like you started out your post with).

Just in case you didn't get it the first time, Guru Sahib repeats the hukum:

 

ਜਨੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਧੂੜਿ ਮੰਗੈ ਤਿਸੁ ਗੁਰਸਿਖ ਕੀ ਜੋ ਆਪਿ ਜਪੈ ਅਵਰਹ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਾਵੈ ॥੨॥

Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of that GurSikh, who himself chants the Naam, and causes others to chant it. ||2||

Raag Gauri Guru Ram Das 

 

So not only does Guru Sahib want us to tell other people about Amrit, but Guru Sahib begs for the the feet of the Sikh who does so. A person who tells others about the awesomeness of Sikhi and Amrit is not "hankari" like you say, but rather apple of Guru Sahib's eye.

More to come.

You know, it has sometimes been considered a virtue that Sikh men didn't look at women. I'm sure you have heard the story, very often told to praise Sikhism, of an Englishwoman who travelled on a long railyway journey with Master Tara Singh also sitting in front of her. She was so praiseful of Master ji who, she said, did not look at her even once, not a glance, not a side-look, not once. But you say not looking at a woman is bad.

You may also have heard of the story of Lakhsman, who when asked what Sita looked like, said he didn't know because he had never looked at her.

Do you know what he was thinking? Anyway, news for you: (many) old people are ornery. Just happens with age (for some). Some people mellow out, other people get crusty. I'm sure Theresa May can get nasty at times. Even Saint Jeremy Corbyn, widely considered to be such a "nice guy", is also said to be nasty, like using mafia don tactics and sacking an underling while she was under treatment for breast cancer without giving her notice. Now you can say, no, he's not really nasty, he's misunderstood, he actually has a lot of nice qualities, but all of that also can apply to the nasty grampa you're talking about: You told us a few bad qualities, but you didn't tell us any of his good qualities.

Did he actually say that?  If you check our rehitnammas, it says not to mingle with sirgums (monas). While not denying the rehitnammas, I would like to say that social exclusion works when you have a thousand Sikhs, and one of them cuts their hair. Once you boycott them, then they come to their senses. But it's quite a different matter when you have a majority of sirgums! Who all can you boycott?

But not being a jackass to monas when they come to sangat is not violative of any Sikh injunctions. So I'd like to encourage everybody to be nice to everybody.

First, lets admit one thing straightforward : 

Our religion has somethings that make it difficult to follow in modern times , esp for men ! So unless we give sikhi to our kids , we're going to lose them from sikhi once they grow up . Its inevitable. 

But then our religion is very straightforward path to god , without involving any superstitions. 

Our kids need to be taught at modern age why they have to wear turbans or kes . Otherwise our kids will grow on to understand turban as "burden" (yes I have heard this word from sikh teenage boys). 

 

Khande di paahul or amrit ?

In gurbaani, amrit means name of god which doesn't discriminate on bhek (outer appearance).

He spoke to turban wearing women, looked them in the eye n patted them on shoulder a few times. Even held patki wearing kids hands (like grandfather friendly manner). I am a witness to this. That family were friends not relatives. On my turn he shunned his head away, no reply back to my "Sat Sri Akaal" neither.

His son ushered me out. Was in a room where only a few selected cn meet. I sort of walked in seeing wha the fuss's about.

This seems like a completely useless topic, because one of your relatives didn't talk to you one time. I don't know if you know this, but if you've met high-quality Gursikhs, they aren't really much to chat with anyone, doesn't matter if your Amritdhari, a relative, friends, spouse or even kids. Also forget the Sikh aspect to this, maybe some people are introverts. I'm with @BhForce on this one.

Not a useless topic it part of a Sikh's experience. Also no one should compel others - make others aware etc... I kno it not a topic of nindia (as no names/ photos mentioned) so still not useless.

Sikhs can learn "why not to compel others." Kno wha am sayin'?

Your only tag is "force", what you mention is that one person recommended somebody take Amrit. Either you live in a bubble or don't understand that humans will try helping each other or destroy each other on their paths. 

@BhForcesays it better than I can.

@BHForce only encourage those who wholeheartedly wish to take Amrit also! AND that person must themselves say "I wish to take Amrit..." If not whas the point of saying to them EVERY SINGLE DAY go take Amrit?

Let's say you're not a hiker and someone for the next 5 years says to you "you should go hiking, you should go hiking" and for the 5 years you just explain "I don't want to. I don't want" how'd you feel?

AND hiking is/ can be a one off thing but taking Amrit!!?? It a LIFE TIME thing.

    • The cheater who runs crook organization KHALSA AID in UK.    Last year a clash was broke out in me and Ravi Singh of Khalsa aid. Ravi singh had called all other Sikh individuals and organization working in charity and working in the field of service to panth UNTRUSTWORTHY. When i read his comment, i objected to it and asked him the reason calling himself as only servant of Khalsa nation but others as untrustworthy, instead of giving a suitable answer to my querry, he made it war of words. Many other ignorant blind followers of him too joined it started attacking me on facebook, tried to defame me. Few who knew his reality of living lavishly on Sangat’s money joined me and helped by to raise this voice against his false propaganda. I was provided enough links and material to face him. Before this i was working as a volunteer to sewa84, a charity organization launched to provide it’s services in the field of education and medical to ‘widow colony, Delhi’ They approached me as i was doing  such services individually and with limited resources. I welcomed them and provided all information regarding needs of victims of 1984 to sewa84. They started helping the needy financially and helped their children to go to school. They paid their fee, enrolled them and offered medical help. Soon it got fame and all eyes of needy focused upon them in their need. wife of Ravi Singh approached me on facebook and wished to provided services of Khalsa  aid to victims of 1984 in Delhi. I thanked her buton the contrary i asked her if the mission of Khalsa aid to help SIKH DHARMI FAUZIS AND MARTYR’S FAMILIES are over and then suggested her to to keep them focused in Punjab only and let the others provide their services in their respective fields and areas like sewa84 is working in widow colony of Delhi. At this they got annoyed and sooner i was on their target, a fake ID of a DSP of Punjab police was created and by that profile i was threatened of dire consequences, this was brought in public and they  were cursed by all my friends and Sikh sangat on FB. I also raised my voice against irregularity in his (Ravi Singh) projects, no transparency in accounts could be found, the money was being collected in the name of Dharmi Sikh fauzis and martyr’s families but a small part in few thousands was given to them whereas a huge donation was collected. I, being an individual never tried to demand money in the names of martyrsor Sikh Dharmi Fauzis. An old Sikh dharma fauzi approached me to get help for his treatment, i posted the appeal on net, soon many Sikhs came forward, i passed the Bank account and other relevant information to them to send him the help directly. His son thanked me many times but i insisted him to fight the hardship of life himself as Sikh panth is debted to his father but we can’t repay them for the sacrifice they made. Soon Ravi Singh grabbed this opportunity and appealed in the their name, he was a fund raiser so he got it but do you know how much money was paid that family by Ravi Singh? It was merely 8000 and he came personally to his village to pay the said amount. This video was p[ostyed for publicity on youtube, may be still there. I was not a fund raiser but i am not an opportunist like him to collect money and spend for myself. I asked him the source of his livinghood as he passes a lavish lifewithout any earnings but never answered. The Sikh sangat in UK pay for the help of welfare of families of martyrs but how much money is paid for their welfare and how much is collected, never revealed. Only now after many pressures from Sikh sangat, the list of expenditure and collection of funds is made public, just see Rs. Seven crores but only 35 lacs distributed. Why? Sikh sangat of UK can not be blamed for not helping the families of martyrs. I sincerely thanks all of them but why this money collected for this specific purpose to be distributed in Punjab/India for the welfare of concerned Sikh Dharmi Fauzis and martyrs was spent elsewhere or kept lying with Khalsa aid? Why this money not used in time for their prosperity and need? Is Ravi Singh not answerable to Sikh sangat? Why is he against other charity organizations like United Sikhs/ myself and Sewa84? What harms have we done to our panth, if we have betrayed, he should make it public without any hesitation but he must be asked to use the collected money to those who deserves not in other parts of world. If he so keen of fame or to help their in any natural disaster/tragedy, he may collect money for that purpose, we shall have no objection but the money collected for martyr’s families and Sikh Dharmi Fauzis needs to be spent exclusively for them only.

    • https://asrandhawa.wordpress.com/2013/11/19/the-cheater-who-runs-crook-organization-khalsa-aid-in-uk/ @puzzled  Mentions 84 victims and how Ravi took advantage 
    • That's good, i think once they finish school enter college and uni when sjw brainwashing starts.......esp those who start studying sociology, feminism and all the bs...then they'll start bringing Sikhi into it  There is Singh that went to Oxford, and he made movement on mental health...and SIkhi being going on for years ....writes these ridiculous articles on far left politics, socialism and brings Sikhi into it...
    • I showed the video to my mother and the first thing she said was why does ravi singh not help them? i actually never sit with my family and discuss sikh matters or issues, so she said it herself.  the last bibi shown in the video filled my eyes, can't even imagine what must of been going through her mind when her Singh told her to save herself and go.
