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.

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
