Is it necessary to take bath before Nitnem ?

I have taken Amrit 4.5 years back and tried to follow everything from Rehat Maryada. Before starting daily errands, I take a bath and do the Nitnem.

I am a software engineer and as a part of my job, I have a hackathon organized in my company, wherein we are required to work for around 24 - 30 hours continuously. I won't be able to take bath on Sunday morning in the company but can do Nitnem in the cabin through my laptop/phone. 

I went through Rehat Maryada and it is clearly written there that I should take a bath before doing Nitnem.

What should I do in such situation?

At one side I feel that I should fight with the company to leave me on Saturday night, this could affect my relationship with the company and on another side, it seems washing and cleansing face and hands should also do.

So did what your saying is that your to lazy to take a bath, ok i understand. NEVER ever miss out on your bath. Ive read biographies about sants which walked 2 km just to get some water for a bath. You would be a disgrace to the ancient Singhs, you want to break maradya for maya nice dude. I wouldnt even say you took amrit, you prob took it cause of some other reason, like more money.

The only time which you are allowed not to take a bath is if there was no water, (i.e like 10 ml of water you would prob be dead though), your kidnapped and the people are not allowing you to take a bath and are giving you the water themselves, or if your in war and your gonna die. Like how Banda Singh Bahdur and the 700 Singhs were killed and torcherd, they were not given any water or food, yet they woke up at amritvela and did paath, 

Obvisouly they werent able to take a bath as they were kidnapped. Now think about you people woke up at 1 o clock walked 10 km tool a bath then did nitnem. They could say OH ITS TOO FAR. But not they did not.

I feel even more ashamed about sikhi, as even amritdhai's are starting to "break" maryada.

This someguy guy who posted above has gone a little over the top imo. This is a one time situation not a guy to lazy to get up everyday. No need to blast the guy because he’s stuck in a situation and asking for help.

And to the OP no need to cause trouble at work, unless they are trying to force you away from sikhi or telling you to cut you beard or something. 

We live in grist so these situations do come up sometimes. I’m not a good gursikh, but I would say ask maharaj for forgiveness. Do a panj ishnan (wash face hands,arms,feet and bring a change of kachera). 

Do your nitnem. Then when you do get home, take a bath and do your nitnem again it your still feeling bad.

If your still feeling iffy ardas and Hukamnama bro.

Then you should really read/review your writing before you post. Because what you were trying to say was not clear at all to the reader. 

We should all strive to have amazing jeevans and nitnems like our predecessors and mahapurkhs, but to blast someone for something so small, in their name, is not right. 

Those same gursikhs you quoted would have probably sat down with the OP, shown him pyar, and lovingly guided him through this situation. 

Sikhi is a very disciplined marg, but it also needs to be filled with pyar at every step of the way. Pyar towards gursikhi, and also pyar towards other gursikhs.

But even this das is imperfect, I’m also vulnerable to this type of rash righteous anger/ego. Guru maharaj sahee hovay

Thanks for your replies and suggestions.

By Guru's grace all went well.

The work assigned was completed very early and my manager assigned some more work, that was also completed. I requested my manager to let me go and left at 2 AM, was able to reach home by 3:30 AM.

so satgur Pyara mere nal he, jithe kithe menu lay chhadayi.

The part where you said you feel ashamed about Sikhi.

You don't own Sikhi.

Sikhi is not YOUR creation.

If we read Asa Ki Vaar as our nitnem, we understand that there are many that do these rituals of cleansing. Maharaj says,

“Sucha ihu na akheeae, behan je Pindda dhoe||”

”Sucha saei nanak Jin man vasiaa soe||” 

“Andar Jootha pej bahar duniya andar fell ||”

”Athsath theerath je naave utrae nahee mael ||”

“Jin patt andar bahar gudarr te bhale sansar ||”

”Tin nihu laga rab seti dekhene veechar ||”

These situations are part of life. We cannot run from them, but the major thing is the way we react. Do whatever is best fit for the situation but always try to follow rehit maryaada. 

“Bhulan andar sabh ko Abhul Guru Karta ||”

bhul chuk maaf karo te kima dido ji

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Je Kee Fateh

As far as , I know 

Guru Nanak Dev Ji never believe in the concept of  purity and impurity  , infact he said " when a woman gets pregnent , people call her she is not pure , how can they say that she is impure , she is the lady who give birth to  maharaja , Guru ( whom you worship) , and at that time some people do home 's purity by water , if you believe in the concept of purity then everything is pure and if you believe in the concept of impurity then water has bacteria too , neither I am saying yes nor I m saying no , how divine pure soul  can make impure people ?  He is pure , we are pure because he made us , stay spiritual , spritualilty gives you freedom.

    • I am sure theres many sikh videos of weddings. Look at rainsbai weddings. Or akj weddings.        There is milni. As the girls side of the family is in charge of the venue. They get their earlier and prepare breakfast langar ( cha pakore etc). Then when the groom and his family come over. They meet each other outside the gurudwara in the parking lot. Ideally the girls family should be doing kirtan with vaja dholki of Aye Mil Gurshikh... as they welcome the grooms family. but if noone from the girls family is a musician, the two families can just greet each other with fateh. Then each of the relatives are introduced to their contrapart. The father meet the father in law. They can say fateh and give sarope to each other. Then the mothers, brothers, uncles, aunts. Then the grooms party is invited to eat langar ( i think they do this before matha teking and as they are sangat, they are allowed to eat first...i think) After langar, groom and his family go matha tek. The groom sits in front of the sangat where they do matha tek.  Then bride walks in. Matha teks, sits next to groom. The palla ardaas is done. Then the shabad about Pallai taindai laagee (or is shabad done before?) And then lavaan etc. 
    • I bet the saura/FIL was quiet before marriage because his wife and daughter made him. I can just imagine it: The MIL "dont start foolish arguments, let the girl be married off first, with your incessant talking and debates, you have alienated all of our neighbors and friends. Stay quiet and dont ruin the girls life!" I am terribly sorry to say theres only 2 ways two deal with these type of people. Be extra strict or humble.  1. The amritdhari person can just say I have taken amrit and vows to the panj pyare and I intend to live by them. I just do what my guru says and am too dumb to engage in debate with smart ppl like you. I dont intend to be a debator or scholar, so please leave me alone. I just want the happiness of my guru. Anytime, the FIL tries to start a debate, just say you are probably right and  i am not smart enough to debate and walk away.  2. Your amritdhari friend is a jija, a son in law. Tell him to use the power that position gives him. He is not a bahu to quietly take what the sass says. The father in law is interfering in his household and needs to be shown his place. The singh should say, i am an amritdhari and you knew this when you married ur daughter into this house. Either you and your daughter comply with my rehits and rules or you guys leave. For the guru, I am willing to destroy my marriage.  (If feels that is too harsh, he can add, I am not a tyrant, you can believe and do what you want. ) But there will be no guru nindya in my house. Your friend is the jawai/SIL. Tell him dont be afraid to make some threats and act tough. Inlaws should be wary of the SIL.  This may not seem like  the best thing to do for family relations,  but people like these actually respect power and tyranny only. The more kind and soft spoken you are, they will ride roughshod over you. You can read about a similar incident here:  https://www.gurmatbibek.com/contents.php?id=21
