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?

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

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?

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

Life is short, harsh and unpredictable. So don’t wait - go for it! 😀

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.

Sikhs of previous generations had to follow a rigorous regime prior to Amrit Sanchar.

Sant Isher Singh Rara Sahib required Sikhs to do Jaap of Mool Mantar for 17 hours daily, for one year prior to taking Amrit Sanchar…

Other Samparda required Sikhs to read and memorise large parts of Gurbani prior to Amrit Sanchar…

The previous generations of Gursikhs, generally speaking, were of a stronger calibre, owing to their intense Nitnem…

Waheguru🙏🙏🙏

    • Do you think our guys in the West are as prone to the dramatics as resorting to suicide? I personally think they've thrown in the towel; a quiet acceptance of defeat which is mostly attributable to the broader culture that has compounded the idea that it's toxic for a man to question a lady about her antics. 
    • If he's just going to kill himself on finding that out, that's unfortunate but fair enough. But don't start killing other people as well, including the b1tch. 
    • This is the absolute crux of the matter; to find a girl who's pretty enough to get the lad hot and bothered BUT not too pretty that her attractiveness has made her a target for other lads from the moment, as they say in Punjabi, her jawani char gayi in her mid-teens onwards. Before the undercover brahmgyanis chime in about prioritising kamayi and Gurmukh values, for those of our people who don't float around in their own little Satyug that keeps the rest of the Kalyugi world out (a bit like Trump's non-existent wall), these are valid considerations that should be looked at in detail for the rank-and-file people of our community. If the guy himself is between the 4-7 range of attractiveness, he needs to look for a girl within the same range. BUT Punjabi guys (and men in general) over-estimate their physical appeal. A man, more than anyone, has a tendency to inflate his own sense of being. He finds it very difficult to process that he may not be what he thinks he is. A guy in this 4-7 range (which is the vast majority of males on the planet) going after a 9 or 10 girl is living in cloud-cuckoo land if he thinks even a typically middle-class, middle-income job (£30-60k) is going to keep a top-tier girl placated for the next 40-50 years of her life (or at least until she lets her self go or hits the menopause depending on what comes first. Even then her appeal to men may fade, but her aadataa -- habits -- will be nigh on set in stone. If they're rotten since decades eariler, the guy is in for trouble). I'd go as far to say that even a multi-millionaire would need to be on-top of his game from the day he's married to the day he drops dead in order to keep a 9 or 10 as his wife. Today, more than ever, a girl's history counts so much. From what I've seen, the majority of apne guys live in a world that is detached from reality. They may consider themselves street-smart and worldly, but in many respects their understanding of the world is, IMO, based on an inaccurate simulation of a wider culture they don't truly understand. As such, those blind-spots is where they end up being blind-sided by the unforeseen. Then you've got to figure out whether her jawani had indeed gone to her head quite a while ago, or if she's been sensible with it. The answer to this question, IMO, comes IN PART from studying the immediate family, i.e. the dad, mum, and siblings.
    • If it's that important to you, you better be sharp. If you want to go for a beauty queen who's had guys buzzing around her from young, you might be setting yourself up for suicide. Use your brains to avoid this or you'll only have yourself to blame.
