Old pieces of paper gurbani written on them. How to respectfully cremate ?

Recommended Posts

From 10 years ago and some older than that, I have pieces of paper which have now turned yellow and really fragile . these paper have gurbani written on them in gurmukhi and english translation

So what should I do with them ? 

I did write them whenever I received a hukamnama and such, but now they have become like really really old, some unfortunately got scrumpled due to being in drawer. 

I now respectfully want to give them back to guru . please suggest a way. Is cremation appropriate ? please tell vidhi

Short ardas, burn, and jal parvah the ashes (not in the Ganges, though). 😀

I think when they cremate old birs of GGS they first remove baani by wiping with ghee or oil or something like that.

    • ok i will try to keep this as short as possible. i wanted to get something off my chest and didnt know where to put it but here goes i wont mention names for privacy reason. my friend we will call him S. I grew up in the same street as S. We were both punjabis and sikhs and our immediate neighbourhood had quite a few punjabis and whites. I met S well playing outside when i was around 10 or 11 during grade 6. his mom and my mom became immediate friends and we would hang out. when we turned 14 he was HEAVY into khalistan movement and loved our culture and religion. he would go Gurdwara and do seva regualry at Nagar kirtan etc. stayed away from smoking drinking and girls and was a very respectable guy. Even though he was a mona he loved our community.  Something changed during the time we turned 17 after highschool we drifted apart but still kept in touch. He started hanging out with a different crowd. These guys werent punjabi but of another group and they got him into crime. From what I hear these guys mentally destroyed him and his self esteem. He never at the gurdwara doesn't go to nagar kirtans and cant remember last time hes even hung around us or even any other apneh for that matter, His mom cries every night and i still get calls here and there from her asking if ive seen him.  I know where he is and what hes up to but i dont want to cause his mom stress. it just hurts me so much what happened to S and i know that if he didn't fall  in with these guys he wouldn't turn out this way. I feel guilty because before this time i got way into the negative side of punjabi culture like partying, girls bhangra etc S was never into these things and I guess he started feeling isolated because I admit we stopped calling /hanging out with him because he would just act awkward around girls and we drifted apart and thats when he started hanging with these guys
    • i hear most pakistanis are barelvi and that the orthodox salafis dont even consider barelvis as proper muslims. its these same barelvis that give sikhs a hard time and are probably the ones who r doing this grooming crap because almost every pakistani mosque even here in canada is a barelvi one. I have only met one orthodox muslim in my life and tbf the guy was very calm and respectable so maybe these barelvis use us as a scapegoat to feel better about themselves?
    • just to add one more thing. This Singh is very strict that degh shud be prepared in sarbloh. If a rehitvaan amritdhari makes degh in sarbloh utensil while japping gurbani, degh becomes amrit.
