How emotional is a Khalsa expected to be by Guru Maharaj? (In terms of familial relations)

not amritdhari but imo we should love and care for our family whove looked after and helped us in life (returning the favour?)...but try to never become so emotionally attached to em that they influence your thinking, judgement and decisions in life.

but this can be difficult sometimes especially for certain elders who u respect n admire in life...

maybe try to read up on how great gursikhs lived their lives and how they treated their family? ask urself what maharaj would do in certain situations given what they did to provide for their family but also their sacrifice at the end of it all?

Emotions come from the mind. Sometimes we’re happy. Sometimes we’re sad. Up and down like a rollercoaster. Unstable. Unsettled.

The truly perfect Sikh is free from the emotional tanglements of the mind. They are lost within the blissfulness of the Akaal Purakh. Neither happy, nor sad. Neither angry, not depressed.

That's a REALLY good question. 

I guess it's hard to get that balance between realising that all human bonds are temporary, and still loving and caring for your family whilst always keeping the greater Sikhi concept of our real eternal identity at the fore of our human consciousness (whilst we try and transcend this very thing through bhagti and actions). 

In an ideal world all members of a family will be striving to break that veil of illusion that somehow separates us from our divine true nature, but in practice it doesn't work like that. People are at different stages due their own karams and efforts. 

I think this is why Guru ji told us:

 

Nanak hukmai jai bujhay taan haumai kahey nah koe. 

I guess if we are striving spiritually (which is a blessing because: 'aap vichoraya aap milieyaa' ) we should have some compassion or understanding for those that haven't even grasped this as an objective of human life as long as they are not being destructive to others?

    • YES! valid points. Life is a thing which can pull people into good / bad stuff. Religion, friends, fam and society can be factors. I too went down a "Make a quick buck" routine a few years back as I considered myself in a "Hard" life. Of course no one was hurt, injured or robbed in the process.
    • Iv listened to it before  I think it's real     he starts reciting the Quran as well 
    • @mods I'm not sure if this violates the forum rules. Please feel free to remove/alter if required. This is not a promotional post and I'm not affiliated with stack exchange. I've just submitted a proposal to them. Satsriakal people! I've created a proposal at stack exchange( the largest question/answer website on the web, similar to quora) to start a sub site devoted to Sikhism where people can post questions and receive answers from others. I request everyone to please follow the site to keep it active so that it can be pushed to the next stage(beta)and isn't deleted.
      Please click "follow" at the below link: https://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/122932/sikhism Once the number of followers meet the minimum criteria, there will be a sub section on stack exchange devoted only to Sikhism, which I think will be a great thing. Let's give our best to make this proposal count. Since this is a new proposal, it also lacks sample questions. Please feel free to upvote the existing questions or add new ones related to Sikhism.
    • shes from a different community n anotha part of town. abt 15 yrs younger than the female elder as well. so y wud she be keepin their company? seems like she was either abandoned by her own for wateva reason n lost her way. maybe livin rough n desperate before bein targeted. or she knew the place well as a worker or regular customer n wanted a piece of the prize from wat wudve seemed a simple 'transaction'?
    • Sidh Gohst is a Sikh Prayer... (i hope u weren't being sarcastic)? Prayer came about when Guru Nanak Ji had an assembly (gohst) with Sidhs, hence the name Sidh Gohst. The prayer is like a Q&A session where Sidhs ask n Guru Ji answers... NOW! Who been telling me to stick t learning about Sidh Gohst?? 😔
