Next month, I will be taking Amrit. Is there anything I need to know?

make sure the panj pyaray giving you pahul aren't poor in rehit, many amrit dharis these days only follow a partial rehit from "jathas" or SGPC etc

if they don't have a clue in following the extremely important martial rehit and don't know what to do with their shastar,, or only wear bana for special occasions, I would look elsewhere...

The only thing you need to know is that you won't be taking Amrit next month...

You can just shut up, you are clearly not needed in this topic. Stupid fool.

You should note that Amrit isn't the end game and isn't required to go to sachkhand, it's what you do as an amritdhari that gives you liberation. (Naam Simran, Seva, etc).

*deleted*

Also take note on what it means to be a Khalsa. A Khalsa is not necessarily someone who has received Amrit but there are two ways of looking at Amrit. The first way is looking at it as the nectar of immortality and the other way is looking at it as a way to become "Amritdhari and Khalsa".

Now most of us, unfortunately, focus on becoming a Khalsa in the context of being initiated into the Khalsa Panth but not in the sense of what a Khalsa actually is.

A Khalsa is someone who has and engages in:

1. Compassion 
2. Charity 
3. Forgiveness 
4. Cleanliness 
5. Control of mind 
6. Purity 
7. Appreciation of truth 
8. Spiritually accomplished being 
9. Warrior 
10. Devotee of God and none other

So to reiterate in the great words of the Khalsa Bhagat Kabir Ji with regards to who is a Khalsa.

‘Oh Kabir they have become Khalseh [attained salvation] who have known Prem Bhagat [love of devotion to God].’
‘Adi Guru Durbar’, Raag Sorath, Bhagat Kabir, Pa.654

‘Khalsa is he who forsakes slander. 
Khalsa is he who fights at the vanguard. 
Khalsa is he who slays the five [ie. controls lust, wrath, greed, false attachment and ego]. 
Khalsa is he who burns [destroys] superstition. 
Khalsa is he who forsakes [overcomes the trappings of] ego. 
Khalsa is he who runs from another’s woman [abstains from adultery]. 
Khalsa is he who does not look at another’s woman. 
Khalsa is he who is absorbed in God’s name.
Khalsa is he who obeys the Guru’s word.
Khalsa is he who takes the weapon blows on his face [meaning fights at the vanguard]. 
Khalsa is he who nurtures the poor. 
Khalsa is he who destroys evil beings. 
Khalsa is he who contemplates God’s name. 
Khalsa is he who attacks the Malesh [meaning 'the filthy', ie. Moghal armies of Aurangzeb]. 
Khalsa is he who attaches others to Nirankar God's name.
Khalsa is he who breaks all restraints [of caste, superstition, ignorance, etc.]. 
Khalsa is he who rides the war horse. 
Khalsa is he who wages war [both the external and internal war against his own mind]. 
Khalsa is he who bears weapons. 
Khalsa is he who kills the evil one.’ 
(‘Rehitnameh’, Piara Singh Padam, Pa.59)

Be thankful it isn't your karam. Better to be baffled, frustrated, on qc that being a diseased coward undermining Dharam. We should do ardas for the administration,  their path is crooked indeed.

Can I ask the reason why you are taking Amrit?

Here is a interesting video.

 

 

Point to one jathabandi that says being amritdhari is the last step?  This guy is has the biggest ego in to world.  Give it a minute, he will be another running off with a white girl.  

Also he says by being amritdhari you have only put on a uniform.  Well that's how atheists look at khande bata da amrit.  A Sikh says 5 Sikh men gave their head to receive this amrit. He knows which people to target so he can get more sangat, not Sikh sangat, but just sangat to give him money.  Call him an off shot of 3ho.

The name of the video is a question,  Is taking Amrit, the last step? And he goes on to say no it isn't as we are always learning.

Which part of the video? Maybe I am miss understanding.

But what I got from it we as a society think being an Amritdhari, means you are at the very top of Sikhi but he also says we should not think this way as we are always learning.

    • I missed this post before.  Trying to think how to put this...was umm your homie violating and Sukha and co put the beat on him for it or what was it about? I respect your posts here, that's unfortunate to hear about your feelings of safety of children around him etc. We've never had any anything about kids being touched within our Dojo but to protect everyone we simply never allow that situation with anyone period.  I only listened to a little katha of his from this thread. Based on three minutes of video vibe he didn't give me the creeps but that's not much to go on.   
    • We can thank my phone spying on me and my chrome browser suggesting I might have interest in that because I posted here on this topic lol. When privacy invasion works for you I guess?
    • https://greekcitytimes.com/2020/07/15/holy-eparchial-synod-of-the-greek-orthodox-archdiocese-of-america-hagia-sophia/ Holy Wisdom, Arise! – Αγία Σοφία, Ορθοί! To the Reverend Priests and Deacons, the Monks and Nuns, the Presidents and Members of the Parish Councils of the Greek Orthodox Communities, the Distinguished Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the Day, Afternoon, and Church Schools, the Philoptochos Sisterhoods, the Youth, the Hellenic Organizations, and the entire Greek Orthodox Family in America Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, We, the Members of the Holy Eparchial Synod of Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, under the presidency of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America, write to you in the power of the Holy Spirt in these anguished days when the Great Church of Christ, the Patriarchal Cathedral of Holy Wisdom, Αγία Σοφία, institutionalized for the past ninety years as a museum and world cultural monument, has been re-converted into a mosque. This egregious and unnecessary action has gravely wounded all Orthodox Christians, indeed all Christians around the world and all people of faith and good will. As your Shepherds and the guardians of the Faith, we mourn with you. But we all know the truth: Αγία Σοφία was built as a Christian Church, the greatest Christian Church for a thousand years, until it became the spoils of war and was converted into a mosque. It was the glory of the civilized Christian world for centuries, an architectural marvel of the transfiguration of terrestrial into the manifestation of the celestial. From its central dome, borne aloft on clouds of light, the Great Church comprised a vision of Heaven on earth, and its Liturgy was the most magnificent the world has ever seen. As the embassy of Saint Vladimir, Prince of Kyiv and All Rus uttered after being present for the Divine Service: “We did not know whether we were on earth or in heaven!” Such is the spiritual intensity of every aspect of the Great Church. Her iconography is a crowning spiritual aesthetic, achieving the vision, the θεωρία of God among humankind. Through the centuries, all who approached Constantinople by sea or land beheld her towering majesty rising above the massive walls that encircled the Queen of Cities. She was a reminder of the triumph of Resurrection over sin and death, and the surety of God’s love and care for His People. She was and indeed still is the very heart of Orthodoxy, for she manifests even now the way to be true co-creators with the Creator of all of a truly Christian culture, civilization, and polity. Even during the centuries of the Ottoman period, the power of ?γία Σοφία, although now used as an Islamic shrine, was unmistakable, and unmistakably Christian. Throughout the Orthodox world the Great Church remained a symbol of the Orthodox Faith of the Ecumenical Councils which bound the far flung Orthodox Peoples together. Even the stunning design of the Church was repeated across the Islamic world in every city and town, as the overwhelming beauty of its presence inspired builders throughout what we now call the Middles East. But let us make it very clear. For the Orthodox Christian, there is only one Great Church of Christ. There would be many other “Hagia Sophias” built around the world; most notably in Kyiv for the People of Rus, but none dared to imitate the original. She was to stand alone, at the center of the circle of the Orthodox World for all to relate to as do the spokes on a wheel. We are all connected to the Great Church, whether we know and acknowledge this or not. Therefore, in response to what has happened, we also ask the question posed to the Apostles on the Day of Pentecost: “Τί ποιήσομεν, άνδρες ααδελφοί –Brethren, what then must we do?” (Acts 2:37). First and foremost, we must bend our knees before the Holy Wisdom of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, and beseech Him through the intercessions of His Holy Mother to protect the Great Church of Christ that lives on in the person of our Ecumenical Patriarch and the Holy Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. We must pray that God will arise and scatter every ill intention that may manifest toward our community of faith and indeed all the religious minorities in Turkey. And we must arise, beloved Christians. We must arise and speak out for the silent stones of Αγία Σοφία. We must go to our Christian neighbors and friends here in this free land of America, and ask for their prayers and their help. We must arise and speak to our elected leaders and demand that they act in conscience and righteousness to protest by every means possible this defiance of the modern sensibility which respects not only diversity, but the status quo that allows for the peaceful and harmonious cohabitation of nations, religions, races, and ethnicities. We must arise and as the People of God, make our voices heard from Washington State to Washington, DC, and not lose heart, lose faith, or lose courage because, though our struggle may be long, it is not without our ultimate hope. Remember that there is no one alive today who remembers Αγία Σοφία as either a Church or a mosque. Everyone knows it as the former of both which was honored as an international monument, on par with the Parthenon and the Pyramids of Egypt. It should be allowed to retain its status quo as a place of encounter for Christians and Muslims, and for all people who desire to behold how faith in God can transform the world. Therefore, let us arise – as Orthodox Christians, as people of conscience with a righteous cause. Let us make our presence and our voices known. Your every breath expended will add to “a sound from Heaven as of a rushing mighty wind” (Acts 2:2) that will sweep across the world carrying our message. Not one of hate but one of love, of decency, of understanding, and of mutual respect. We will never give up our hope, never give up our faith; and we will never give up our love. Σοφία, Ορθοί! With paternal love in our Lord Jesus Christ, †ELPIDOPHOROS, Archbishop of America and the Holy Eparchial Synod.
