Recommended Posts

Sangat ji I need some advice and tips. I wish to take amrit and need some help.. 

My wife is not ready yet - can I still take it without her? Everyone I speak with recommends waiting for her and doing it together. 

What routine do you guys have? What time do you start nitnem in the morning, how do you fit it in with working out in the morning and getting kids ready for school and then going to work etc? 

Thank you

Memorise Gurbani and do it as you workout in the morning. I've been doing this for a while, and it works, especially if you've a job you need to get to. Sometimes I have to train after work when I get home, but that usually depends on energy levels.

It really is best if the whole family can be in the same boat, but each case is unique. Some non-amrithdari women can be for all intents and purposes be leading a very pious lifestyle on par with amritdahris but just have a lack of self confidence in keeping the amrit vows. Others can be hell bent on never going near religion. With the former, you will have smooth sailing even if she doesn't accompany you.

For Nitnem, it's admirable the more time and focus you can give it. But don't fall into the mindset that it'd either 2am or not worth it. Life has it's challenges, especially with children, just find your balance. For me, it's half at home, and half in commute. I love it.

You may wait and then pass away before she was ready. If she’s okay with the life style I would go for it alone and then she can join you later. I agree with some of the others. Sleep early like 9ish,... you could wake up 3ish and go back to sleep before the kids wake eg 7. I feel when you do Amrit vela regularly Waheguru Ji gives you all this energy and you some how go through the day on little sleep just fine.

    • Hopefully it's not more mangling of Sikhi with " Sikh" (Punjabi) and 'South Asian' culture https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/birmingham-2022-unites-sikh-community-23875249 Birmingham 2022 unites with Sikh community for South Asian culture festival at Walsall Stadium United Colours, a South Asian festival celebrating the Sikh community, will take place at the end of this month at Walsall's Bescot Stadium   By Robson McCallister 05:30, 15 MAY 2022 A huge South Asian festival celebrating Sikh culture and faith will be held on the pitch at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium at the end of the month. 'United Colours' has been organised by Sikh charity Global Sikh Union in association with Birmingham 2022 and will take place between May 28-29. The South Asian festival of culture will include over 400 musicians and will also host the Commonwealth Games Community Roadshow. A number of sports will be available for people to try including a mobile squash court. Aside from sport and music, the two day festival is an opportunity to celebrate Sikh history. Global Sikh Vision's head of operations Ashveen Kaur Kohli spoke about what historical elements attendees can expect at the end of the month.   “The main thing we want to bring to the events is that we have a historical exhibition. We’ll have an exhibition on the Sikh Empire and an art gallery. “It’s about coming and embracing history. Learning different things including the different rulings of India and bringing up a timeline of history. “Let’s not be afraid and scared of history. Let’s see the entire timeline for what it was, engage with it and be proud of the history. “Birmingham 2022 has been amazing and heavily involved in this event. 'United Colours' is an event for community cohesion and for the entire South Asian community - but we recognise it’s from Global Sikh Vision, a Sikh charity. “We’ve had meetings back and forth every week for the last couple of months. They’ve been incredible and we’re grateful that they’re joining us.” The involvement with the Sikh community comes after Birmingham 2022 was criticised by Sikh faith leaders last month. Cllr Gurdial Singh Atwal had said: "Since the Games arrived, we have had little or no contact from the Games Organising Committee, we are literally missing from the Games Cultural programme, just like other South Asian communities like the Bangladeshi and Pakistani communities." West Midlands Mayor Andy Street met with both the Sikh community and Birmingham 2022 on April 28 to address the diversity concerns that were raised. Mr Street tweeted: “It was great to hear the clear commitment from Games organisers to practical action in the next 90 days that will make a real difference for communities.” The upcoming festival will feature Birmingham 2022 Hometown Hero and wrestling coach Ranjit Singh who will give a talk on Sikh communities links to wrestling with Games mascot Perry the Bull also in attendance All of the fundraising on the day will be given to the British Heart Foundation with funds used for lifesaving treatment as well as to raise awareness to the South Asian community. Birmingham 2022 has been working with both Global Sikh Vision and Walsall Football Club for a number of months on the festival to ensure the event runs as smoothly as possible. Birmingham 2022 lead community engagement manager Abigail Shervington views 'United Colours' as a chance for people to get involved with the Commonwealth Games if they are unable to attend the event this summer.
