Sangatj ji what does Gurbani say about babies being vulnerable to bad spirits?

My family usually doesn't pay much heed to things related to the supernatural or superstitions, but since a baby has been born in my family, I've noticed they do after all believe in such things to some extent. For example, putting a black and white bracelet on the babies wrist, keeping jal from a historical Gurdwara at home and sprinkling it sometimes, beliefs such as not to go near and touch the baby without washing hands and face if you've just come from outside as you could have the "hawa" which could transfer onto the baby, and doing Jaap Sahib when the baby seems very distressed and won't stop crying (I've seen this one work).

Very curious to know your points of view. Looking forward to your responses. Thanks!

Wjkk Wjkf!

Congratulations on having a baby!

Doing naam simran is your best protection. The more gurbani being read in your household the less likely these type of things affect you. Bad spirits can affect anyone, but what can they do to you when Guru Nanak Dev Ji is your protector? Trust gurbani not these superstitions.

yeah obviously, babies immune system is low, their spiritual immune system is also lower. dont listen to ppl who say "Where does it say in Gurbani?", thats not common sense. Gurbani is poetic-spiritual lore, not a direct how -to guide bro.

use your common sense and follow advice of your ancestors/elders they are quite smart

this is not superstition lol. its scientific fact. superstition is like not leaving the house when someone sneezes or some crap like that.

and holy hell, people always say gurbani this gurbani that but have you even looked around you at real life, stuff like black magic exist bruh you have to be smart and avoid it just like bad spirits and people... obviously gurbani protects you 100x more than any of the rituals but the rituals also help its not superstitous unless you take it too far and make it a fearful thing. if its out of love, then do it, if it makes you afraid then your just contributing to the bad vibes and aura of the baby and household situation.

ultimately, read gurbani ,play gurbani but also rmr that things like bad spirits exist so be careful as well. dont be a chicken with your head cut off

Actually I don't know it and was hoping someone familiar with the Gurbani related to this topic could quote it.

While i'm not discounting the existence of evil spirits (where there's good there bad right) a lot of the "superstitions" around newborn's have a foot hold in reality, you don't go near a baby without washing at least your hands first because of germs, "hawa" from outside translates to your body temperature when you go see a newborn, if it's cold outside it;s common sense not to pick up a baby until you've warmed up.

Regardless, we always would have Sukhmani Sahib playing when our children were young and it would calm them down.

Amen Veer Ji. I myself feel beset and only by Kirpa and Naam and Gurbani do I even stumble forward. May we all let go and let God and feel a sense of loving protection for one another.

No that’s ridiculous. 

 

Of course babies can sense things, so can we. But they are on their own journey. Rituals etc are rubbish. Instead why not try and do Naam Simran near your baby.

    • It's not even about religion anymore. Most of us are trying to survive out here in the West.  Myself dont care for Sikhi as much as I use to. Everything is in waheguru ji's hand whether or we will survive in the coming years.  
    • Is it the end of SGPC? I mean there’s one in Punjab, one in Haryana and Delhi.  Recently Hazur Sahib removed 2 members of it. It was a British creation in the 1920s.
    • In the uk we have Ramgharia gurdwaras, in some places ther are called Ramgharia sabha! However, I think most gurdwaras and even sikhs calling themselves "Ramgharia" are scamming us as they have weak or no connections to Ramgharia misl, and are just using the fact that they are tarkhans they can use the Ramgharia term because Jassa Singh Ramgharia was from tarkhan background. Please prove me wrong!   Also, I have been observing gurdwaras since I was young. I remember when I was a child in the 80s and 90s, Singh Sabha gurdwaras still allowed shoes and langar was eaten on tables, in the times when the adults used to work all the time, doing double shifts etc. However in the 2000s we can see a change in Singh Sabha gurdwaras as well as some other gurdwaras, where shoes are no longer allowed, and we have a lot of space to sit on the floor and do pangat in langar.  It's really strange to see so many tables in gurdwaras after seeing langar done exclusivily on the floor gurdwaras in Panjab and India. Just look at Harimandir Sahib, 4 takht, and many other gurdwaras back home. Now, across London, Slough and Berkshire, midlands, I have noticed Ramgharia gurdwaras allow shoes into langar and have little or no accommodation for sitting on the floor. It is bizarre to see in Ramgharia gurdwaras, the sangat coming from doing sangat or matha tek in divan hall, and then putting on their shoes to go to langar. Like we are going to a restaurant or something! What is this, is it some kind of kenya/east africa sikh colonial army era tradition to keep doing this, even after the other gurdwaras have moved back to giving satkar and respect for langar maryada? Then we come to the scam, in the Ramgharia gurdwaras, there seems to be more links to East Africa sikhs than Ramgharia misl. There are more trim Singhs with Kenya paghs on Ramgharia gurdwara committees compared to more sabat surat Singhs on Singh sabha committees, from my observations in these England regions. You will find more kenya pagh and trim or fixo darhi, than bana walay Singh in these gurdwaras, again the Ramgharia label is scamming us, as Ramgharia is used for sabat soorat Singhs from the misl, especially those tuned to bana (and open beard is part of bana). Also, I have listened to Rehraas Sahib in some Ramgharia gurdwaras, and they read the disfigured bhasauria SGPC style of Chaupai Sahib (such as the way performed at Harimandir Sahib the past 100 years), skipping arril and the last lines of kabyo baach benti, which makes them more like a Singh Sabha gurdwara and far removed from being Ramgharia due to having similar disrespect towarda bani as Singh sabha gurdwaras, as Ramgharia misl would respect dasam bani and read the full kabyo baach benti. So the langar thing is bizarre, and now I think of it it's disrespectful. And the use of Ramgharia sikhs and Ramgharia gurdwaras term is a scam as they are anything but, as there is so much disrespect to be associated with the practices of Ramgharia misl! Even the fact they celebrate Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgharia's birthday doesn't allow them any forgiveness or courtesy! This goes double for the Slough Ramgharia Singh Sabha, as they have a statue of Jassa Singh Ramgharia, and yet are their actions related to actual Ramgharia? Yeh, let's not fall for the scam! and sikhs that are sangat in those gurdwaras, really need to step up and get in those committees and change things for chardi kala! We need to see more chardikala Singhs running things, not trim Singhs and fixo Singhs!
    • Japji Sahib can be done anytime within 24 hours, but ideal time is before breakfast.  Ardaas after is optional but if you can make it necessary will be ideal. When it comes to paat more the merrier.  Meat / alc should be in separate rooms to Gutke Sahibs. It is possible no matter how small the house. WAIT! Isn't all food in the kitchen??  You can still do paat after meat n alc. Nothing wrong there... just wash yer hands! (Obviously).
