8. What oil is good for your hair, (lol Ik random question)


Coconut oil and natural oils are good for your hair. I use argan oil because it makes your hair soft and it makes your hair longer. (It made my hair longer)

The kaam problem is solved if you follow Guru Nanak's lifestyle of grihast jeevan, the Gurus and puraatan Singhs and puraatan Singhs would have married as teenagers so the kaam problem was greatly reduced by grihast jeevan.

Some groups will only give naam and maybe even limited about of banis when giving amrit, but some groups that are part of the original Buddha Dal and Tarna Dal, ie Nihangs, will also teach you the practical lifestyle that is actually part of rehit and is actually also mandatory by Guru Gobind Singh such as practise of shastar, and can also teach you other things like horse-riding and hunting if you stay these groups for a while. 

Some groups have decided to either ignore or not preserve these practical parts of Guru Gobind Singh's hukams, like shastar is just as important as nitnem paat for an amrit dhari sikh. And the more you follow Guru ji's rehit the more you will subdue your ego, otherwise if you take amrit from a group which only follows partial rehit without the mandatory practical rehit then you might get the ego of being amrit dhari without following rehit fully.

Your mind is a computer.  They had a term GIGO in the olden days meaning garbage in garbage out. What you watch, hear, read and see will feed your mind. What you think is what your body will do. If you decide enough is enough then you can stop. Bani is meant to tune the mind to the almighty.  

If you manage to tune yourself enough, then you will want to use your hands just for seva. As Jesus said if your right hand makes you sin cut it off and throw it away.  However you can decide to talk to your hands and tell them to stop. Alternatively you could go and use your hands for seva at the gurdwara. Would you want to pollute your hands now?

Being idle is another thing which promotes bad habits. Have a healthy sport you can engage in. Focus your mind on other things and go for a walk instead of staying alone.  

Access the deeper issues causing the problem.  Do not just read this and forget it the next moment.  

Its much like one of the bhagat jis telling his tongue - this is a gurbani tukh - re jeeba karu sat khand jaam na uchras sri Gobind. He is telling his tongue that he is going to cut it into pieces if it does not say the word of God.

Good luck and do let us know what works so that others can benefit too.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
