One person can not follow two or more religions at the same time. By following religion I mean that you do your nitnem everyday. and try to follow the panthic rehat maryada. If you really know all these religions than you know for a fact that you can't follow all of them at the same time. You can't have one foot in one boat and other foot in another boat. An amritdhari cant be worshiping idol like in Hinduism and Christianity. That is what he meant by hodge podge. the kids are usually confused and can't really commit to one religion. it does happen but its every rare when both parents accept one religion. I have seen it happen but rare.
You can wear the necklace that has a kirpan and kanga. For the kacherra you can try to make a small one that clings to your body more. If not just do a rdas before and after riding your bike that youre taking off your kakar and please forgive me
I'm glad there's a couple of guys here on my wavelength. 👍
It's not being negative or pessimistic to acknowledge these issues, but it becomes quite demoralising when there doesn't seem to be any way out of it apart from total destruction of the whole darn thing. Why? Because there are some deeply damaging things that, once unleashed out onto the mass consciousness, cannot be reeled back in. I think it's when that point is reached that the climactic cycle of destruction begins in preparation for something fresh, untainted, and new.
Unfortunately, there is no rehabilitation of certain evils and their representatives. To not banish them permanently is perpetuating that evil even further. But, as you said, we are trapped by committments and ties and all sorts of minor yet inescapable day-to-day things that keep people from focusing on what's important. I think "they" do this to befuddle those people who would otherwise provide a solution to these and other problems that plague the human race.
I agree Veer Ji. When you look around the world there really isn't any great nation or faction to support. Just a battle of evils amongst themselves.
Outside of select military service to keep up to date, I really think it speaks to Sikhs need to train and fight for Dharam Yudh only. Only a very few should enlist in the militaries of today and they should disseminate that training within the rest of the Sangat when they are done.
Where is there even to go? The so called republic of macedonia? Some south American land bordering indigenous yet unconquered tribes? Everywhere you walk is Imperialized somehow.
Japan would be a good fit culturally, and has a declining population, but is thoroughly occupied by the united states and a forward operating base for war in Asia.
Really were all stuck covered in filth all over the globe, and whatever privilege we enjoy is usually because the country we live in is exploiting others.
Only thing one can do is be self sustaining in food, water, and self defense with whatever Sangat that surrounds them.
Most of us are too trapped by economy to do anything other than work, watch and have an opinion. At least if we Jaap Naam and read Gurbani we are doing good for ourselves while the <banned word filter activated> show unveils itself.
