Converting North India


Recommended Posts

It wouldn't be hard to do that tbh, but our leaders are fat pigs and keep all the money for themselves. It would be great to have some tough Rajasthanis and Haryanvis as Sikhs. Sikhi would be easy to spread as most Indians already believe in karma, reincarnation, god being everywhere, people in india are very familiar with these things. All we need to do is send out people to do parchar and spread awareness  but our leaders are too corrupt, they just dont give a <banned word filter activated> about sikhi or sikhs

I personally feel that it would be quite easy to convert Haryanvi Jats. They are after all outcastes in the Hindu caste system, and they can feel at home with many of their ethnic counterparts being Sikh.

The Arya Samaj used a similar tactic to convert them to their sect. They were not given the Kshatriya status they hoped to be given by other Hindu denominations, however the Arya Samaj gave them what they desired. We need to do something similar, not only with Haryanvi Jats but with all downtrodden communities in India. Give them what they fervently desire: a status within society. Sikhi provides that.

Yeah i dont think it would be too hard especially because they are not that different to us culturally same with places like Ganga-nagar in Rajasthan which has punjabi influence

There are Rajput Sikhs, I'm friends with one. Not sure about other Rajasthani Sikhs. However its imperative that Sikhism spreads out in the Northwestern corridor of India, be it Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Kashmir and Gujarat. It allows for a concentrated area of Sikhs rather than sparsely populated which makes them more vulnerable, and unable to have a support system. It will also then be easier to spread it from there on to other regions. 

only problem with rajput sikhs is they hold being rajput higher than Khalsa...remember they are the ones who requested seperate bata for amrit...

Weren't the Singhs who killed massa rangar Rajasthani Singhs?  Do Rajasthani Sikhs still exist today? not the Punjabis that have moved there but actual Rajasthani Sikhs? 

Hanji, they were from Bikaner.

I don't give two hoots about what gujjus say

sikhs have a divine mandate to spread gurbani's message , understanding this people will automatically reject oppressive dictats of other faiths

 

Okay I see you point. Converting is allowed in Sikhism. So why do we never do it. I also hear so many who are against converting and swear by it. 

I really should stop with my guji phrazes. 

ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh  ?

    • 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!
