Nitnem?

Recommended Posts

Guest

WJKK WJKF.

We all know that nitnem usually starts at 2am. Some people start earlier which is totally fine.

Whenever I go to a special event at the gurdwara that lasts all night and upto morning, why done amritdhari's not do their nitnem at that time? If it was to end at like 7am (which is 2-3 hours past the deadline for nitnem) aren't they missing their nitnem?
 

I notice the same at normal gurdwara's. If I come really early and end up leaving really really late the amritdhari's don't do their nitnem?

Nitnem is simran. When they are at the program they are still doing simran so it gets counted in. They may decide to do double nitnem path the next day, however it is a personal choice.

Amritvela starts at 2 am, or 3 am depending on what time the sun rises. Cuz amritvela is supposed to start 3 hours before sunrise. So we are supposed to do simran until the sun rises and at sun rise we r supppsed to the 5 bania. So yeah, it makes sense to do nitnem at 7 am after all night program. But some ppl like me are tok sleepy. Other ppl r smat, they will leave the program a few hours early so they can finish nitnem.  Gurmat Bibek youtube channel has a video on this called why rainsabai or something similar

AH! Nitnem is before sunrise BUT! Let's see where this tradition started. INDIA! And where do Sikhs like me do Nitnem? UK! Has anyone seen sunrise in UK around 6.15am in cold season?? In December India sunrise is at 5.30am onwards and can be 4am! For summer... Sooraj da chadi gia, sajno! Following the sun's direction should be focused more on time.

Just for the original poster: I do not believe Nitnem is a personal choice, even if you're doing or listening to some other path or keertan. You should complete your minimum Nitnem banis (5 banis) when you can (such as when you get home). You can definitely do 1 or even 2 just on the way home.

    • Waheguru is closest than anything to all, irrespective of color, caste or creed. It is only that we people turn away our faces from Him with our haume/ahankaar and thus heavily incurr in bad karmas, but if referred to Him, He is within everybody with same love and mercy for all, waiting for us to knock at His door, in order to bless us with His true love and bakshish.
    • You must be naturally dumb then. 
    • Cheer up Kaur jee, no need to condem or torture yourself so much, for nobody either is a saint here, we all are weak and low, good you realized something, now keep going forward towards Waheguru, He is bakshanhaar, provided we do not commit those same mistakes.
    • The Anandpur Sahib Resolution : The Anandpur Sahib Resolution represents a pivitol point of Sikh history,  after many years of failed negotiations with the Govt, a list of minimum Sikh demands was drafted. It is interesting to note that it was drafted in 1973 and it was only after the Govt failed to accept these basic demands (many of which most States already enjoyed from 1947) that the Sikhs were forced into the Dharam Yudh Morcha (Agitation and protest).Read more: https://khalsaforce.in/anandpur-sahib-resolution/ Point by point demands found here: https://www.satp.org/satporgtp/countries/india/states/punjab/document/papers/anantpur_sahib_resolution.htm (Excerpted from The Encyclopedia of Sikhism, Vol. 1, 1995, ed., Harbans Singh, page 133-141) Anandpur Sahib Resolution, a frequently invoked document of modern Sikhism pronouncing its religious rule as well as its political goal. After having enjoyed power under chief ministers, Gurnam Singh and Parkash Singh Badal in the Punjab, newly demarcated in 1966, Sikhs are represented by their premier political party, the Shiromani Akali Dal, were able to capture only one seat at the elections to Indian parliament (1971) from among the 13 which were Punjab’s portion. In the Punjab Assembly elections which took place in March 1972 their tally was a mere 24 seats of a total of 117, and the Punjab Government passed in to the hands of the Congress Party, with Giani Zail Singh (later, President of India) as chief minister. This electoral debacle led to self introspection on the part of the Shiromani Akali Dal which appointed on 11 December, 1972, a sub-committee to reflect upon the situation and to proclaim afresh the programme and polices of the Dal. The 12 member committee consisted of Surjit Singh Barnala, Gurcharan Singh Tohra, Jiwan Singh Umranangal, Gurmeet Singh, Dr. Bhagat Singh, Balwant Singh, Gian Singh Rarewala, Amar Singh Ambalavi, Prem Singh Lalpura, Jaswinder Singh Brar, Bhag Singh, and Major General Gurbakhsh Singh of Badhani. The first meeting of the sub-committee took place at Amritsar. The venue then shifted to Chandigarh where the committee completed its task in ten successive meetings. Counsel was available to the sub-committee of the celebrated Sikh intellectual and thinker, Sirdar Kapur Singh, whose impress the draft emerging finally from its deliberations carried. The document was adopted unanimously by the working committee of the Shiromani Akali Dal at a meeting held at Anandpur Sahib, town sacred to Guru Gobind Singh, also reverenced by Sikhs as the birth place of the Khalsa. Since it was adopted at Anandpur Sahib (October 16-17, 1973) the resolution came to be known as the Anandpur Sahib Resolution. It was endorsed in the form of a succession of resolutions at the 18th All India Akali Conference of the Shiromani Akali Dal at Ludhiana on 28-29 October, 1978. An English version of the resolution is quoted below: Read more about its history:https://www.thesikhencyclopedia.com/the-modern-history-of-sikhs-1947-present/anandpur-sahib-resolution
    • You deleted the post, but withing one hour someone from the mod team deleted the whole thread from the forum. Did you request the mod team to delete the thread?  Why were the mod team so quick to delete a thread that was about grace?  You cannot delete threads.  You should have no problem posting the two separate writes ups you did in that thread.  Be honest, you don't want the sangat here to read what you wrote because in one of the post you asserted to being Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji.   Right after I asked you,  are you claiming to be Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji?  It could not have been 30 minutes later you deleted the write up on both post and within the hour the thread disappeared.    Since you have the two post saved.  Let the sangat see what you wrote.  Your post contained no top secret information or anything special but they did speak to how you see yourself.
