Fateh all! 

Just me contemplating here. When I was young, parents were like "If you say waheguru, u are blessed. If u fail to say waheguru, u go to hell" (ok ignore the quote marks). 

Today I ask... why am I Amritdhari? why do I have kirpa n knowledge of Baania plus naam jaap? Am I doing it for a reason or just for you? heck, why am I even writing this here? why are u reading this? DK about u but... maybe am doing what am currently doing is to NOT fall in hell? At least we see animals suffer (84 lakh joon) but what goes on in hell? 

At 17 after taking Amrit I was old enough to not worry about hell. I read far too many biographs (like, two or three) and was inspired by bios to take Amrit. With kirpa my Sikhi is getting stronger by the day. But what then? will Waheguru see me after life "Shabaaz puth! ehne paat padleh aja hun, tera heaven wich saer karieh." Then I think it's about the future, setting Sikhi seeds here on the planet. 

Maybe my aim is to have a gist of Brahmgiani? maybe one day I will become a Brahmgiani and spread the word of God, just like Baba Nand Singh, Sant Kartar Singh, Sant Gurbachan Ji did? Maybe am TRULY doing this not to fall in hell, get beaten, burnt and stabbed in the arse? Maybe am doing all this to prove Sikhi is best compared to other religion? Maybe am Sikhi just to pass the time? 

Whatever the reason only we know why we chose Sikhi and follow it. I do have a plan and will follow it. This plan involves to learn, whatever I do I enforce on myself, NEVER to consider other religions low and slander other religions and to maintain a good discipline in my Nitnem as well as maryaad. I believe something excellent will happen. Maybe am scared of not being reunited with God this life? maybe I no longer fear falling in hell (and get stabbed up the arse) but fear of dejection is now great? 

Who knows!

After listening to many Gursikhs who have followed the teachings of Gurbani, I have personally reached one conclusion.

Namely, take Kandeh di pauhal Amrit, keep rehat, and follow the teachings of Gurbani. Focus on the Jyot inside us. That jyot is SAT CHIT ANAND ISHVAR. All the bliss is there, nowhere else!

Do your nitnem without fail. Read additional Gurbani too. Do Japp of Mool Mantar. Do Jap of Waheguru Mantar.

By focusing on our Jyot, everything else will seem meaningless...

    • I never said anything about life for Sikhs in the UK in the 70s, I was talking about the present day. I understand and respect the struggles that you all went through to get to the position where you are today. But I hope you all don't lose sight of the fact that the freedom and status that Sikhs enjoy in the UK today is very far from the norm. Sikhs in the US today are fighting battles that were settled in the UK decades ago (and without the benefit of a population density that gives Sikhs in the UK at least some visibility and political sway). But forget about the US. You don't have to go that far, you can just cross the English channel and see how precarious the position of Sikhs is in continental Europe. Thanks for giving details about the grooming issue. Do you think this had to do with Labour being more concerned about the Muslim vote (as Muslims former a larger voting block than Sikhs) or political correctness? Or both? I concede that leftists sometimes go to far with political correctness and "canceling" in order to try to show how "fair" and "unbigoted" they are. I am not going to question your take on the whole grooming issue. You know more about that than I do. But that seems to be a very specific situation in the UK. I stand by my general point that left-leaning people are by far the most likely to support the rights of vulnerable minorities (which is the category that Sikhs fall under almost everywhere).   I don't buy your point about a backlash to "wokeness" at all. I don't think that that is what is causing the growing popularity of far-right movements. The way information is shared and distorted today is radically different from what was the norm not very long ago, and that has been the game-changer that has led to today's division and polarization. You seem to think that if the "woke" people would just be quiet, the racists would not have a "rallying cry". That is simply not true. First of all, those people will ALWAYS find something to complain about. (That has certainly been true throughout American history. If it has been less true in UK history, that is probably because the white British majority did not feel threatened by a sizable minority until relatively recently. See my second point.) Second of all, the complaints of the more hardcore right-wing racists increasingly resonate with the more "passive" racists as the majority community diminishes in size and feels more threatened. And third of all, as I alluded to before, today's media/information landscape will allow for any complaints to blow up and go viral.   Any time anyone from the non-majority community asks for anything, no matter how reasonable, there is going to be a backlash from the majority community. And in many instances, the non-majority community doesn't even have ask for anything or complain about anything to provoke a backlash. Their mere existence is enough. This is what history has shown us.

    • And people want to talk about poverty, look at how India was stripped of wealth. Here 2800 silver bars were taken for ww2 but didn't make it back here. Now that they've found it, look at what they are doing with it. The pillaging is still going on.      Treasure from the deep: Thousands of silver bars that were meant to fund Britain's WWII effort but were sunk by German U-boat FINALLY reach their destination - and will be sold as coins Merchant ship carrying silver from India for the war effort was sunk in 1941 Its cargo of 2,800 bars of silver has sat on the bed of the Atlantic ever since Record-breaking bid to salvage the silver from three miles down a success The Royal Mint is now making the metal into coins to remember the tragedy https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2596785/Thousands-silver-bars-sunken-WWII-ship-sold-coins.html
