    Too much ‘Krodh’ will your destroy your soul. You should do breathing exercises and do lots of naam simran. This much nindia, hatred and jealousy is not the way of a Khalsa.

    Looking to start a residential school with two goals - (i)Provide underprivileged kids with a childhood and education (ii) Teach these kids gurmat, sangeet and shastart vidya with a view to prepare future parcharaks - ones who will help entire humanity (not just sikhs) unlock the peace and joy that is forever within us. I have created a facebook group , please join (https://www.facebook.com/groups/402189280239697/)- Feel free to add your friends - please spread the word , also lets start idea pooling as to how make this work at scale - my vision is at least one or more schools in every city/town/village where we have sizable sikh population. Currently our dasbandh is being wasted on lavish langars and palatial gurdwaras, we need simplicity and altruism that gurus espoused

    Fateh I have a tree for my children and no I am not a cocount. My children know their history but I also want them to integrate with their community, children at school etc. Yes I buy them also gift from santa as that's what they still believe in. This is what I see with Muslims - so secluded from rest of the country/community that they live in - they think it's their way or the he highway. Get the balance right. Bhul chuk maaf

    Oh Guru Ji, look at the Nihangs of today. Even Nawab Kapur Singh will shed tears of blood when he sees the Nangta of Santa Singh's acolytes: Note : Link edited. Let’s remember gurpurab and shaheedi dihara going on this month.

    Guys secretly admire girls with open hair. My husband always used to encourage me to leave mine open. Uncut hair is hard to leave open without it blowing everywhere and getting untidy. I finally told him - they cut their hair to get that look. So yes- being amritdhari does mean that you have rid your feelings for a spouse whose looks match the western ideal stamped upon us by advert after advert about what looks best. Why don't people see it as a positive - as in a cut hair girl actually married a sikh boy When they reject pag vale we complain - do wheres the praise now? An apna married an apna and we are still sad. What do we want and who made us judges by the way?

    Come on don’t be so harsh on him! He’s a solid banda who is fighting for Sikh causes. This video is all about warming to those sceptical White Canadians. PR exercise nothing more. As far as his partner goes who knows what conversations have taken place between the two. Maybe she will take her Amrit from when they are officially married. Besides there are 101 Amritdhari girls who walk around who also wax and pluck so I don’t think Jagmeet Singhs fiancé can be pulled up on this yet. Also are seriously going to hold his privileged upbringing against him. He could have just chased the money and kept off the rador by being a yes man but instead he chose to be vocal about his grievances and chose to represent his community and be their voice when nobody would speak for them.

    Ah dekhlo, feeling defensive are we??? Soft spot for Taksal??? And he hasn't even said anything offensive!! Yet you have the nerve to disrespect and do nindya of every single Samparda and Jatha that doesn't suit your narrow-minded cultish mindset. What was it you said? Oh yes..." They see a blue bana and a farla and the fan boys are going baba ji baba ji your are the best" How would you like it if I said: They see the name Khalsa Bhindrawale and the fan boys are going baba ji baba ji you are the best. Double standards isn't you gobshite.

    It's all relative. A drug epidemic in an country that is independent is quite different and less dangerous for that country than one in a state that has a bare Sikh majority and that is controlled by an oppressive government of another community and which is hell bent on destroying the Sikh population by all means at its disposal. And the Khalsa Aid muppets think that using the Sangat's funds in Punjab is only appropriate if there is an earthquake there! These muppets don't understand that there is an earthquake of farmer suicides, drug addiction, pollution and cancer in Punjab every month and yet these arrogant people are off to 'waste money in areas where tens of millions is being spent by other larger charities. You are right that KA is now all about marketing and collecting money. I am sure they work on some formula that one image of a Nishan Sahib raised in a far flung place is worth many thousands of pounds in donations as are images and videos of their volunteers in KA t-shirts giving out food to refugees. What is interesting is that they use their posts on facebook to ask for donations when they have £2.5 million in their bank account. At a time when our community is under siege in Punjab and the likelihood is that Sikhs will lose their majority in Punjab in the next few decades we need to make sure that every penny of the Sangat's money is used wisely and ONLY in ensuring that it is used for the welfare of Sikhs. That is why apart from other charities working with Sikligars etc, the only other charity I donate to is Sikh Relief. This used to be mainly help Sikh prisoners in India and their families but has since started to expand to organising Gurmat camps, dastar tying camps and other Sikh parchar activities. These people are the ones that are making an effort to raise the next Sikh generation. I would put the difference between this charity and KA in blunt terms as Sikh relief is raising the next Sikh generation while Khalsa Aid is raising the next Muslim generation!

    Thanks for comments SANGH and Monatosingh, Our model is a bit different (its supposed to be very personal) - its like worldvision's one on one sponsorship where you write to the kid(s) you sponsor and talk to him/her over skype etc, so your money is not ending up in a pool with no traceability. I am personally financially independent so will ensure if the project does not succeed , it goes to some organization like SOPW .

    What planet are you on? This kind of dumb thinking by Sikh females will guarantee they will be some ar5ehole's sex slave in the advent of any conflict. Do you not get the simple fact that Guru Gobind Singh ji (Guru Nanak in their tenth form) instructed Singh's to have bandooks? Is that too hard for you to understand?

    What am I supposed to make of the fact that our people, especially the amritdhari section, are this clueless about their own religion/heritage that they haven't got a clue about how their ancestors were armed. We haven't even touched the issue of astaars like cannons either. Shasternaam mala's section on bandooks is the largest one within. Is there any coming back from this level of cluelessness? Would most amritdharis even carry firearms if they could? I doubt it - look at the US Sikhs.

    you want to quote Gandhi to sikhs as a valid philosophy when that paedo <banned word filter activated> called Dasmesh pita ji a deluded rebel ? ... try growing a spine and seeing the world for what it is non-friendly to sikhi ...or anything Godly or good and decide to fight for right and justice for the oppressed otherwise what good is your sikhi ?... we are all supposed to bring light to this dark world ...not hide our God given jot under a kambal and turn a blind eye

    ਮੁੰਦਾ ਸੰਤੋਖੁ ਸਰਮੁ ਪਤੁ ਝੋਲੀ ਧਿਆਨ ਕੀ ਕਰਹਿ ਬਿਭੂਤਿ ॥ मुंदा संतोखु सरमु पतु झोली धिआन की करहि बिभूति ॥ Munḏa sanṯokẖ saram paṯ jẖolī ḏẖi▫ān kī karahi bibẖūṯ. Make contentment your ear-rings, humility your begging bowl, and meditation the ashes you apply to your body. Stay contented in what you have rather than compare your physical attributes or material wealth with others . Also stay humble and keep away from any show off . Meditate every time you get some free time - even while walking or commuting. ਖਿੰਥਾ ਕਾਲੁ ਕੁਆਰੀ ਕਾਇਆ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਡੰਡਾ ਪਰਤੀਤਿ ॥ खिंथा कालु कुआरी काइआ जुगति डंडा परतीति ॥ Kẖinthā kāl ku▫ārī kā▫i▫ā jugaṯ dandā parṯīṯ. Let the remembrance of death be the patched coat you wear, let the purity of virginity be your way in the world, and let faith in the Lord be your walking stick. Remember death - everything is impermanent and hence not worth taking too seriously (eh jug dhune ka pahaar) and keep your mind and body 'virgin' i.e. free from vices such as greed, anger, lust, malice etc. Have a belief that whatever I see, hear , touch or feel is nothing but Waheguru himself. ਆਈ ਪੰਥੀ ਸਗਲ ਜਮਾਤੀ ਮਨਿ ਜੀਤੈ ਜਗੁ ਜੀਤੁ ॥ आई पंथी सगल जमाती मनि जीतै जगु जीतु ॥ Ā▫ī panthī sagal jamāṯī man jīṯai jag jīṯ. See the brotherhood of all mankind as the highest order of Yogis ; conquer your own mind, and conquer the world. Harbor no grudge against anyone - accept all as your own family . Battle with your mind day in out and out, every time the mind throws up an impulse like checking phone or buying something - take a few deep breaths and see if it subsides. https://www.facebook.com/groups/sikhint

    (i) Read one or more pages of SGGS and listen to as much kirtan as possible. (ii) Eat only to support the body and not for the fun of it - (oni duniya tore bandhna ann pani thora khaya), also making sure no sentient being was hurt for my taste buds. (iii) Right after waking - first thing 5 -10 minutes of simran(iv) Khalsa should be tyar bartryar - simple home workout - 3 sets of pushups, squats and leg raises - our body is a shastar too afterall (v) Not engage in meaningless gossip only use words to inspire joy in others (no fikka bolna) -Lab lob ahankar taj trishna , bahuta nahi bolna (vi) Minimize use of electronics (especially cell phone) - they steal our precious breaths like none other (vii) Give away clothes, electronics , furniture etc that I do not need and live minimally (viii) Sponsor underprivileged children and help them realize their dreams. (ix) Educate people about virtues of simple living, simple weddings (x) Drop castist surnames if you still use them and discard all baggage of this evil brahmanical practice - our gurus fought hard to bring equality to all and we blinded by our egos, have undone all their good work.

    See this post about Sant Maghar Singh: Sant Maghar Singh was showing us that the value of Sikhi is higher than our lives. We are afraid when our life is in danger, but we are not afraid when sikhis is in danger from our own actions. Lesson: The punishment isn't the death of us. The punishment is a daag on sikhi.

    I have been a member of this forum since late 2011, during these last few years I have witnessed a great many changes in the administration and content of this forum. The current toe line, however, seems to be focusing more on aligning dissident opinion with the majority's through the use of bans and heavy moderation which-in most cases- I believe to be generally uncalled for. I understand that this is only my view, but nonetheless it is a concern which has been voiced on this forum several times before. At the end of the day, whilst profusely thanking all fellow accounts, I will also request the mods to pay heed to my reason for leaving this forum: Sikhi was never based on a majority consensus opinions where Jathebandi fanboys had rule of the roost. I don't understand, then, why this forum has mods who swiftly expunge any content which they deem to be an antithesis of their own cherished perceptions.

    My maternal side family of family does the same, and I’m happy for them. It’s nice for children, they get excited about Santa Claus and presents. But I don’t personally do Xmas officially nomore as it’s costly and for one day I don’t think it’s worth the bother to go to all that trouble. Plus as I’ve got older, we tend to go to the Gurdwara if we can. But I don’t judge anybody on spending time with loved ones if that’s what they want to do. I will wish my family and friends Merry Xmas every year, but just don’t send cards nomore. I’ve had some invitations at Xmas time, so sometimes will visit them after Xmas day to spend time together, as the holidays are a good way to get together. I also buy my nieces and nephews gifts as I want to and they get happy, as their friends will be doing the same.

    this guy is a butthurt hindu he has many low swipe videos which have clickbait titles but atheist arguments against christianity not sikhi , obviously he can't find any... not surprising as many atheists admit if they did believe they would have least problem following Guru ji because the benevolence, equality and ecological aspects are there

    I started a discussion on similiar topic on sikhawareness too, http://www.sikhawareness.com/topic/18738-can-amritdhari-marry-non-amritdhari-lets-discuss/ As general rule, as per maryada we are all told No which is fine as there has to be principle and rules-rehit in sikhi otherwise people will walk all over it. However, this is not clear cut issue. It's not a rule written on a stone, its assessed case by case basis by panj pyares, panj pyares are authority not single sikh who can impose/enforce such a blanket role on all. I believe strongly one should not hide or withhold information from masses as many christians have done to control the masses and sway them in one dimensional thought process or direction. At the end, i want provide some references from sant singh maskeen talking about this so i m not pulling stuff from thin air: 1. Sant Singh Maskeen katha on can someone take amrit without their partner. http://kam1825.podbean.com/e/can-someone-take-amrit-without-their-partner 2. I personally know malton gurdwara- taksali gurdwara-senior panj pyares might allow one to take amrit without their partner, again this is assessed individual to individual case basis, where panj pyares will interview both jivs, person who is not ready to take amrit will be encouraged highly to take amrit, they be given benefits of amrit in gristh jevan how gristhi jevan both wheels (partners) have to aligned and similar in life style. At the end, its left to person who is not amritdhari to make decision. If yes, thats great, both are given amrit, if not, one person who is ready given amrit. Along with malton taksali gurdwara, nanaksar gurdwara allows it. In India, hazoor sahib allows it where bibi is given kirpan da amrit. Here is the video of bhai jagraj singh on this issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YESx050n-hU

    Maya follows those who follow God. They do wonderful kirtan. At the end of it... he did mention that he has never had to beg for anything. The youth go to listen to them. Its genuinely earned money. So what if they have a beautiful car and house. .. it is all the wish if God. Why slander those who guide you to God? Do we ourselves have the dhaat to perform amazing kirtan like them? We all paid from our jobs. No one forces us to donate to the poor.

    And here you're doing it again, what I asked you to avoid. I said it's OK to say some people are fraudulent amritdharis, just don't call all amritdharis fake. And yet here you again make a blanket statement that "the people who have taken it (amrit) are the big fakes". This is exactly why you got a beatdown from @MrDoaba . You could have said "some people who take amrit are fake" but you deliberately chose not to. By doing so deliberately, you have slandered the saintly Sikhs who are also among the amritdharis you attacked. There is no difference between them and God: ਹਰਿ ਹਰਿਜਨ ਦੁਇ ਏਕ ਹੈਂ ਬਿਬ ਬਿਚਾਰ ਕਿਛੁ ਨਾਹਿ. And this is the state of a slanderer of the saints: ਸੰਤ ਕੀ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਜੋਨੀ ਭਵਨਾ ॥ ਸੰਤ ਕੀ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਰੋਗੀ ਕਰਨਾ ॥ ਸੰਤ ਕੀ ਨਿੰਦਾ ਦੂਖ ਸਹਾਮ ॥ ਡਾਨੁ ਦੈਤ ਨਿੰਦਕ ਕਉ ਜਾਮ ॥ (੫, ੧੧੪੫-੯)

    We complain because we don't have enough Sikhs in politics. When we do have one we still complain because he's not a Mahapurkh. A generalisation that one could make is Sikhs in political power have not always adhered to maryada as strictly as janta. The same is true for many other communities, and just like Jagmeet they know where their loyalties lie - for the qaum. I find it hard to believe that his motives are otherwise. If they were, he would have been at an advantage had he still been a mona rather than an Amritdhari. While there's no doubt that Raajneeti from a Dharmic perspective should always contain elements of righteousness, the means to reaching the primary objective, which I believe in this case to be the betterment of the Sikh Qaum and amassing political influence and power to wield in the international arena, may well be outwardly adharmic. This especially applies at a personal level whereby one may be exempt from certain religious laws to serve the greater good. Executing Ranneeti and Raajneeti simply cannot be held to the standards of Rehat Maryada namely due to the fact that this is Kalyug. As stated in another post we cannot and should not expect the neetikaars to be pious and religious figures. Unless of course we're happy being personae non gratae forever. If it later becomes evident that his motivations, intentions, and loyalties lie elsewhere, by all means tear him down.

    Depends on the individual state of mind for some its awakening-new way of being at some level due to amrit intensity, for some its bhagti bhav, for some doing more patt and mool mantar jaap, for some getting used to do amritvela doing 5 nitneems, 2 in the evening, for some its devotional singing-kirtan, for some its going to gurdwara every day more often, and seva. And those who also rush in to take amrit after listening to pumped up parcharaik (i'll use ranjit singh dhandrianwale divans in the past for example) also feel huge interest spike in daily nitneem, sikh way of being for few months then it kind of dies out as they have taken decision in haste or due to trend. Sikh and Khalsa way of being is life long journey towards knowning your real self- jot saroop and abiding in sehaj avastha. Reminds of baba budda ji bachan- Mukh Bhagti Hirde Gyan

    thats what makes sikhi so unique. There is nothing like it in the world. 1. All other religions like Christainity and Islam say if u dont follow their religion u go to hell. Sikhi says, if you don't do naam jap and good actions and waste time doing paps, you will go to hell and be reborn through 8.4 lakh joons 2. Sikhi accepts that people from other religions can meet God through naam. 3. In Sri Guru Granth Sahib, there is place for all religoins, budhism, Islam, Hindus because of bhagat bani. No other scripture from any religion is like that 4. Guru sahib actually wrote gurbani themselves. Bible was wrote 200 years after Jesus, and I think it was similar for Quaran. 5. Quaran and Bible have different versions and can change so much and have changed so much over time. Gurbani is perfect at all times, no need for changes. 6. Islam and christainity promise heaven and freedom hell for believers, Sikhi says there is sachkhand (completely different from heaven) for gursikhs. 7. Guru sahib gave sikhs everything. We have our own Kirtan which is unique ( no dharam has their scriptures written in raags), we have gatka, and our own identity, our own everything because of Guru Sahib 8. NO other religion really has langar except for sikhi 9. Women have most equality and respect in sikhi, even within gurbani 10. Everyone is born sikh, with scissors you can trim hair and become part of other religions, without scissors, everyone would be sikh (Qoute from Sant Jarnail Singh Ji) 11. No religions has as many shaheedis as brutal as in Sikhi. 12. Nothing can compare to Darbar Sahib. 13. No other religions really has miri or piri concept 14. We have our own 5 takhts for political power 15. Shashtars in Sikh 16. There is nothing like Amrit in other religions. Christians may have baptism, but they can do it over and over again. Amrit is one time thing. 17. No one can equal guru sahib and their sacrifices, i.e Abraham who started the line for Islam, Jews, Christains, did not kill his son when god asked him to sacrifice him in God's name. Then in sikhi we have Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj who watched all sons give shaheedi and give jakaras at same time. 18. Guru Gobind Singh ji maharaj made us a part of themselves by giving us amrit, and giving us sikhi saroop to have with beards, dastars, rehat etc. 19. SO MUCH MORE I DONT HAVE TIME TO TELL ABOUT

    Your Christian "friend"''s multiple questions basically just boil down to this one question. The answer is simply that God desired to create the world (Maya) as his divine play, called "khel". Principal Sahib Singh, his his Darpan, quoted many lines from Gurbani that reference "khel": ਲਫ਼ਜ਼ ਖੇਲੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੰ੍ਰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਵਿਚ ਕਈ ਵਾਰੀ ਆਇਆ ਹੈ; ਪ੍ਰਮਾਣ ਵਜੋਂ ਸੁਪਨੰਤਰੁ ਸੰਸਾਰ ਸਭੁ ਸਭੁ ਬਾਜੀ ਖੇਲੁ ਖਿਲਾਵੈਗੇ ॥ ਲਾਹਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਲੈ ਚਾਲਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਦਰਗਹ ਪੈਧਾ ਜਾਵੈਗੋ ॥੫॥੫॥ ਕਾਨੜਾ ਮ: ੪ ਅਸਟਪਦੀ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਖਰੁ ਹੈ ਊਤਮੁ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਇਕੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਹਮਾਰਾ ॥ ਹਰਿ ਖੇਲੁ ਕੀਆ ਹਰਿ ਆਪੇ ਵਰਤੈ ਸਭੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਕੀਆ ਵਣਜਾਰਾ ॥੪॥ ਕਾਨੜੇ ਕੀ ਵਾਰ ਜੈਸੇ ਹਰਹਟ ਕੀ ਮਾਲਾ ਟਿੰਡ ਲਗਤ ਹੈ ॥ ਇਕ ਸਖਨੀ ਹੋਰ ਫੇਰ ਭਰੀਅਤ ਹੈ ॥ ਤੈਸੋ ਹੀ ਇਹ ਖੇਲੁ ਖਸਮ ਕਾ ਜਿਉ ਉਸ ਕੀ ਵਡਿਆਈ ॥੨॥੮॥ ਪ੍ਰਭਾਤੀ ਮ: ੧ ਆਪੇ ਭਾਂਤ ਬਣਾਏ ਬਹੁਰੰਗੀ ਸ੍ਰਿਸਟਿ ਉਪਾਈ ਪ੍ਰਭਿ ਖੇਲੁ ਕੀਆ ॥ ਕਰਿ ਕਰਿ ਵੇਖੈ ਕਰੇ ਕਰਾਏ ਸਰਬ ਜੀਆ ਨੋ ਰਿਜਕੁ ਦੀਆ ॥੧॥੬॥ ਪ੍ਰਭਾਤੀ ਮ: ੩ ਪੀਤ ਬਸਨ ਕੁੰਦ-ਦਸਨ ਪ੍ਰਿਅ ਸਹਿਤ ਕੰਠ ਮਾਲ ਮੁਕਟੁ ਸੀਸਿ ਮੋਰ ਪੰਖ ਚਾਰਿ ਜੀਉ ॥ ਬੇਵਜੀਰ ਬਡੇ ਧੀਰ ਧਰਮ ਅੰਗ ਅਲਖ ਅਗਮ ਖੇਲੁ ਕੀਆ ਆਪਣੈ ਉਛਾਹਿ ਜੀਉ ॥੩॥੮॥ ਸਵਈਏ ਮਹਲੇ ਚੌਥੇ ਕੇ, ਗਯੰਦ ਕੀਆ ਖੇਲੁ ਬਡਮੇਲੁ ਤਮਾਸਾ ॥ ਵਾਹਿ ਗੁਰੂ ਤੇਰੀ ਸਭ ਰਚਨਾ ॥ ਤੂ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਗਗਨਿ ਪਯਾਲਿ ਪੂਰਿ ਰਹਾ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਤੇ ਮੀਠੇ ਜਾ ਕੇ ਬਚਨਾ ॥੩॥੧੩॥੪੨॥ ਸਵਈਏ ਮਹਲੇ ਚੌਥੇ ਕੇ, ਗਯੰਦ ਸੋ, ਖੇਲੁ ਦਾ ਅਰਥ ਹੈ ਜਗਤ-ਰੂਪ ਤਮਾਸ਼ਾ In the end, he defines "khel" as the world drama. Note: In the pre-creation state, there was no sin, nor charity. From Sukhmani Sahib: ਜਬ ਅਕਾਰੁ ਇਹੁ ਕਛੁ ਨ ਦ੍ਰਿਸਟੇਤਾ ॥ When this world had not yet appeared in any form, ਪਾਪ ਪੁੰਨ ਤਬ ਕਹ ਤੇ ਹੋਤਾ ॥ Who then committed sins and performed good deeds? ਜਬ ਧਾਰੀ ਆਪਨ ਸੁੰਨ ਸਮਾਧਿ ॥ When the Lord Himself was in Profound Samaadhi, ਤਬ ਬੈਰ ਬਿਰੋਧ ਕਿਸੁ ਸੰਗਿ ਕਮਾਤਿ ॥ Then against whom were hate and jealousy directed? There are many lines that could be quoted, but this sums things up nicely (21st astpadi of Sukhmani): ਸਲੋਕੁ ॥ Shalok: ਸਰਗੁਨ ਨਿਰਗੁਨ ਨਿਰੰਕਾਰ ਸੁੰਨ ਸਮਾਧੀ ਆਪਿ ॥ He possesses all qualities; He transcends all qualities; He is the Formless Lord. He Himself is in Primal Samaadhi. ਆਪਨ ਕੀਆ ਨਾਨਕਾ ਆਪੇ ਹੀ ਫਿਰਿ ਜਾਪਿ ॥੧॥ Through His Creation, O Nanak, He meditates on Himself. ||1|| And so, the command for us, too, is to meditate on God. And that's how your "friend's" questions will be answered, if he's sincere.

    Why do they have to say Sikh in the title that just makes it worse for Sikhs. (Not saying he doesn't deserve to be Sikh) It's like saying if a christian man launched a terorr attack they won't say he is christian, they will probably say white man or just his name. If an Asian does it they have to include the race.

    I know it isnt. Im Just saying that Sant Maghar Singh use to be very serious for these kind of acts. So its to remind all of us to never do these things as they are ruining the name of Sikhi. The punishment isn't killing. The real punishment is the damage done to Sikhi and it's name. Thats the lesson we should take out of Sant Maghar Singh. That there will be scars onto sikhi. If we are putting scars on sikhi, then treat that as if we are putting scars on the very body of Guru gobind Singh ji. Ruining sikhi is the same as doing the highest form of beadbi. Sikhi isn't ours, its Gurus. Just like our Kesh don't belong to us, they belong to the guru. We must see khalsa as Guru. These people are not seeing Khalsa as guru anymore. If they did, then these actions wouldn't even cross the mind of a gursikh. Would guru sahib do these actions? No. Being part of the Guru Khalsa means that our limbs dont belong to US anymore, they are now Guru gobind Singh Jis limbs. This a lesson for all of us. The Saints come to this earth to teach us valuable lessons. They did it for a reason. That Sikhi is worth more than our lives.

    Har Ghar Ch Nave Saal Ander, Deeva Pyar Vala Sada Jagda Rahe. Gali Gali Ch Aman Da Raj Hove, Chulah Kher Da Ghar Ghar Machda Rahe. Pave Baaz Na Kunjan Dee Dar Ute, Daga Khushi Da Dhol Te Vajda Rahe. Hove Shanti Sare Sansar Ander, Gola Eerkha Da Na Koee Daghda Rahe. Rahea Panchian Vang Ek Per Ute, Sanjha Jor Mela Tha’n Tha’n Lagda Rahe. Navan Sal Ave Khushia’n Kheria’n Da, Jharna Piar Da Dila’n Che Vagda Rahe. Supne Saflata De Sare Sakar Hovan, Vehra Aasa’n Umeeda’n Nal Sajda Rahe. Ek Rub Te Manukh Hae Jaat Eko, Sabh De Bhale Da Danka Vajda Rahe. Vatavarn Fir Khushgavar Hove, Nirmal Neer Sada Dharti Te Vagada Rahe. Roti Rajj Ke Mile Grib Tan’ee, Har Koee Apne Ghar Ch Vasda Rahe. 2018 Nave Saal Di Sabh Nun Vadhaee Hove, Rishta Sanj Piar Da Vadhda Rahe. May Wahiguru´s blessings be on each and everyone Sat Sree Akal. *P.S : Sending my New Year wishes to the Sangat here right now, in case I get busy and can not come later.

    There are 3 apples for 2 sons and 2 fathers to eat. Each of them get their own apple. How is it numerically possible? Which word in the dictionary is spelled incorrectly? I am the beginning of the end, and the end of time and space. I am essential to creation, and I surround every place. What am I? What is it that when you take away the whole, you still have some left over? Forward I am heavy, but backward I am not. What am I?

    SOUL OR ROLE CONSCIOUSNESS Often we are so occupied in playing our roles that we do not pause to check whether we are reflecting our soul personality into our every role. Let us make a list of our roles. As a parent, I have to … As a spouse, I have to … As a professional, I have to … As a friend, I have to … the list is long. While writing the script and playing every role, our relationship, age, position becomes the criteria of how we enact our role. This is called Role Consciousness and we may develop ego – feeling superior or inferior to others. In role consciousness we believe that playing the role well will earn us happiness and love. So we are seeking happiness from our role. Situations and people may not be our way always and hence we may not be able to play the perfect role, the result is stress, anxiety, anger or fear. Experiment soul Consciousness for a day, using soul power in every role. Irrespective of position, relationship or age, enact every role with the original qualities of happiness, love and respect. The role does not nurture the soul, it is the soul which nurtures the Role.
