I’m 13 years old and I want to take Amrit, I have been trying to keep my Rehat for 2 months now. I can do my 7 Bania in Gurmukhi and I do some Simran, I don’t have my 5 Ks yet, I’m learning how to tie a dastar right now. How much longer should I keep my Rehat before taking Amrit?

Honestly ji if your heart is set on amrit and ur already keeping rehet, the final step would be asking permission from Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj in the form of a Hukumnama. 

Do I have do to a Hukamnama?

There is no set time to keep rehit before taking Amrit - you should feel comfortable keeping it and then take Amrit. Personally I kept it for around 6 months before taking Amrit

I was thinking to take Amrit by the starting of September, I have been keeping my rehit since the end of April.

You are so lucky to find Sikhi at this age ?? Stay blessed 

Amen bro. Op's life trajectory is way different with this blessing. Looking back some Kalyug had crept into me before then, in fact really young, but it was largely decisions I made from that age onward, that I would totally redirect if I could, knowing now what I do. Having the benefit of Gurmat. 

And op picked a great name.

Gursikhs usually advise to keep amritvela for at least 6 months. This is not a requirement but it will help a lot. As it’s better to miss a few days and get fully into the routine before taking amrit rather than after. It depends where you are blessed with Amrit as well. When i took amrit all the abhyalkhis (those who came to ask for amrit) were questioned one by one alone in darbar by panj Singhs in the hazoori of Guru Granth Sahib. However, unfortunately this rarely happens. Panj Singh ask about how much rehat you have kept and see if you are really ready to travel this path. As its not just for a couple of years, its for life. 

Keep rehat for 6 months, you’ve already done 2 (well done!), keep another 4. See how you feel. Do ardas everyday to maharaj for Amrit di daat.

    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
