That the water dispenser machine at work also has a warm option for warm water lol.

I helped this muslim lady who had a disabled child in a buggy down the stairs by holding one end of the buggy while she held the other. The elevator at work broke and she was stuck on the 1st floor.   I like helping people but often hesitate to ask if they need a hand. I asked her and she really appreciated it. I will try to ask people more often.

That Guru Sahib might have told us to tie a Turban and behave in a certain way, but they never told us to Discriminate the people who doesn't wear a turban or choose to walk a different path..

This is a thread on what you learned today.  But you can't stop with your agenda to force your atheist opinions on this website.  Tying  turban is what the Gurus gave Sikhs.

you should all be learning that today you've been blessed with another chance to saas saas simro gobind. But us manookhs just wake up and sel  our breaths to maya.

Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji's bani says  "Sadho ih jag bharam bhulaanaa, raam naam kaa Simran chodiaa. Mayaa haaath bikhaanaa"   (Oh sadhu, seekers. The world is deluded in delusion. Everyone has forgotten to simar the naam ansd has instead sold themselves"bikhaana" to maya)   ang 684

Day before yesterday I realised that I am punishing myself by joining with maya, and true freedom is only when I let my soul freedom  from lok laaj to join with naam
Yesterday I was recommended a sikh channel on YT  and that really opened up my heart more 'Khalsa ji '

This morning I woke  and first thoughts were to hear katha kirtan and do naam jap , my heart's full of gratitude as its been a long time . That has been the case ,as I had forgotten to leave my worries at Guru ji's feet , last night some old mindsets clicked in from my early life and it became easy to trust Guru ji as my maat pita to look after me  as in the deepest troubles They always have.

What did everyone learn today or this week?

I only teach not learn. Any time spent with me is a learning time for you. 

The question you should ask is what did I learn from big-tera today. That I can use for the rest of my life?

Similar happened to me right after I was blessed with amrit. Was outside waiting for a lift from the Guru Khar and this lady needed help with getting the buggy at the top of the stairs. Help was offered.

Helping bibis carry prams up stairs (like on the tube) isn't a big thing. You should've been doing this before amrit anyway. It's just a sign of decent manners, not religiosity.  

No need to go overboard with it, but if you happen to be passing by at the bottom of the stairs when some women is obviously planning on going upwards, just politely and quietly ask:

"You okay? Do you need a hand?" 

Some bibis like to do it themselves without help, but some will say "Yes please."

Advice: Get a good grip on a sturdy bit of the pram and walk forwards with it behind you. This is a lot easier than walking backwards up the stairs.

Not something that i learnt but something that i was reminded of. This Punjabi lady who works at the same place as me was crying a lot at work, she was totally broken, this aunty who works there was hugging her and comforting her. seeing things like that you are reminded of how sad and broken some people might be in the inside. We often forget that when living in our own little world. I felt really down the rest of the day after seeing that. But it just reminds you ...

    • Honestly, I don't know. I will look into the matter and see if some answers comes up. Bear in mind I was talking about regular Sikhs. Not the Gurus themselves. Even if there was a fire, it wouldn't have been Vedic in any sense. Well the difference is in what is meant and being suggested. To them "fire" means the whole Vedic shebang and a return to it. One can equally call out practises from Vedic times which are now obsolete and say "lets return to them!" right back to these groups. It's not hard to concieve in reality that certain things remained similar but the intention of disucssing the matter is important. In the case of weddings, there is very little information. Guru Sahib rejected the janeu for example, to which there is a Sakhi and Bani attached. But it is not until Guru Ramdas Ji that Sikhs get their own ceremony, and again I will repeat I was deducing with regards to the use of fire. Lots of ambiguity. Maybe the couple did just stay sitting or standing whilst Laavan were read by Sangat, maybe not. As for Sikhs such as my great-grandparents, that was just a matter of circumstance. One cannot use that argument to promote a return to Vedic style weddings.   Yes I'm aware that within Hindu weddings it is indeed Agni Devta. But we are talking about Namdharis, and from what I have seen, there is no invocation from Rig Ved - that's what I'm saying, we assume that the fire present in a Kooka wedding is considered as Agni Devta when in actual fact to me, it seems as though it's....just a fire. Which really has no particular meaning per se; just a continuation of one aspect of the ceremony. They read Suhi Mahalla 4. A fire is only Agni "Devta" if one believes and invokes.  
    • the fed is lying to all of us https://www.peakprosperity.com/the-fed-is-lying-to-us/
    • I have a english pdf of Rig veda , the oldest scripture of Hinduism, the oldest of the 4 vedas ,  and perhaps the most revered .  It starts with a hymn praising Agni and asks it to reside over the 'straw and fodder' of the havan. HYMN I. Agni. 1 I Laud Agni, the chosen Priest, God, minister of sacrifice,
      The hotar, lavishest of wealth.
      2 Worthy is Agni to be praised by living as by ancient seers.
      He shall bring hitherward the Gods. Looking at the index of the scripture , I am surprised , Agni is like everywhere in it almost. So , yes the marriage rites are basically asking Agni devta . "Agni devta" is the main witness of hindu marriage .    EDIT ---- A hymn in another mandal says  HYMN LIX. Agni. 1 THE other fires are, verily, thy branches; the Immortals all rejoice in thee, O Agni So , I think Agni may not be the "fire" as in flames, but rather the heat energy pervading the universe, be it in form of fire energy, metabolic heat in body, nuclear heat inside sun, power plants, etc or the latent fuel inside wood , etc. It basically refers to the "heat" form of god . I could be wrong though. and I don't think I have enough time to go through the vast expanse of the text . 
    • So during marriages of 4th guru onwards , they married by fire ? and that includes Guru Gobind singhji as well ?  I am genuinely curious because of the many claims made by RSS about "reminding sikhs of their past" , this is also one that one commonly encounters, that ancient sikhs and gurus married by fire and that it wasn't until those evil pesky britishers who drove a wedge between hindus and sikhs and voila Anand karajs started  Whats the meaning of 'laav ' ? perhaps it could mean something altogether then ?  Anyways , regardless , I would reckon Hinduism have had far, far more changes to it considering its almost 10 times older than sikhism is (500 vs 5000 !) . Hinduism is so old infact, that rig vedic deities like Indra, Asvins , Maruts,  etc are not even heard of today , let alone worshipped  Sikhi is more pristine in comparison in the turmoils of time.
