I have heard that at AKJ Amrit Sanchaars if someone goes for pesh they blacken their face and take them in front of Sangat and make them confess their sin. Is this true? Never of heard of anyone else doing this, so is it an AKJ thing? Or just some bs?

funny I've been to many Raeshabhais and AKJ programs from my youth and have never seen anything like this , please stop spreading unfounded stuff and go pesh if you need , the interview with Panj piare is where you will discuss your problem , that's all.

From what I have heard from Singhs, in 18th and early 19th century, if some singh broke his amrit (i.e. did a bajjar kurehit), his face was blackened and he was taken before the sangat and after this he was given amrit again.

In dal panth (sikh army)the punishment was even more severe for someone who broke his amrit. The person was beaten severely by fellow Singhs.After the beating, his wounds were taken care of and he was given amrit again.

this used to happen in Punjab until recent times. Its a punishment that was used throughout the subcontinent, they used to blacken the face and sometimes make them sit on a donkey. Even mughals adopted this on captured warriors etc    maybe in some backwards parts of india they still do this.    Putting shoes around the neck, parading them around on a old worn out animal, blackening the face with tar etc    it was used to dishonor the person. 

not sure if it was ever used by Sikhs to punish other Sikhs though    but it was definitely used on adulterers, fornicators etc   

You ever heard aunties talking about a s1ut and saying how she "muh kala karliya"  lol

I have never seen it happen, but when my mom went to receive Amrit for the first time, she mentioned she witnessed this happen to someone.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
