how to stay on this path

Recommended Posts

Guest gurooo

I am amritdhari but recently have not kept rehat for a while due to problems in my personal life, i have not done anyhting bad like do beadbi of my kes or eat meat or any of the 4 kurehits. But i have not been doing my nitnem/amritvela/kakkar rehat- i.e. often I will go days without wearing my kara or kirpan etc and i used to listen to a lot of katha kirtan but now i just watch western tv and movies it's gotten quite bad i feel like i've forgotten my sikhi

how can i stop myself from doing all this in the future and what can i do to discipline myself into staying with rehit? do i need to go pesh to panj pyareh? but im scared if i go pesh i will fall off this path again and have to keep going back.. i really love sikhi idk why sometimes one thing leads to another and suddenly i haven't done my nitnem in weeks

Its easy to fall off the Path every once in a while but by dusting yourself off and carrying on on the Path is the main thing. Because right now, you are like a table with 2 legs, you are more prone to falling so try to surround yourself in the Sangat of Gursikhs, listen to as much Bani, kirtan and katha as you can. Motivate yourself with Katha to help you wake up in the morning. All other works are of no avail to you. Watching western tv etc is a load of garbage anyway lol.

As for your Panj Kakkars you have to keep them on, no matter what. The Panj Kakkars are the nishaani that you are a Sikh. Wear them with pride (not ego) but be proud that you have been blessed. I like wearing a massive Kara because when everyone asks me why I wear it, I love explaining Sikhi to them. Shastar you should always keep them on you 24/7 because you have to stay tyar bar tyar. I'm not amritdhari yet but Maharaj Kirpa hoping to take amrit when I'm around 17/18. However I am starting to practise now. 

You do need to go pesh because maybe you will feel like you don't want to go the Panj Pyare again if you go once. Please take it from someone who is so thirsty for amrit. You have been blessed with amrit so please keep it till the day you die. It is a truly a Gift that is priceless. 

You are part of Guru Gobind Singh Ji's family so you have every right to walk with your head held high.

All other still looks reasonable as lots of amritdhari people don’t wear kirpan and Kangha regularly, but i have never seen anyone who stopped wearing Kara.

its most ‘easy to adapt’ kakaar, even non.amritdhari and non.punjabis wear Kara all the time without taking it out.

thohda jiha hardwork te bai ji karna pena tuhanu vi 😊

are you suffering from depression?  why do you miss nitnem?  do you not wake up early enough, or you are too tired? have you lost faith in them?

i'm asking these questions to help figure out the cause.
