    This is the key! The problem you have is that you are setting "conditions". This means that your efforts and kamayee are conditional, since you have a predetermined outcome. The idea is to make efforts without any conditions. It's got to be purely UNCONDITIONAL. Only then will it be TRUE love and devotion. As MisterrSingh suggested "what can you do for your Guru?" Simple answer is devotion, balihaarey..., give your head, ..sacrifice...Not just once,,.but again and again. Every time you do MATHA TEK, you should be offering your matt and head for Guru's Matt (GUR-MATT) , No moh, no lobh ..no attachments... just the desire for Guru's love. Keep offering your matt and self, so that guru may bless you with "mokh duar"

    Nicely put. We do need a place where we can all talk amongst ourselves. It should not be a place where everyone thinks exactly alike. What would be the point of that? One big lesson that you get out of participating on Sikhsangat, is that a person that you may disagree with vehemently on one issue is the same person that you may agree with strongly on another issue. In my opinion, this breeds empathy and brotherly-feelings among us where we can appreciate that a Sikh who disagrees with us on some issues still has Panthic emotion.

    Hello to you all. I am a white british man and I would like to know what preparations I should undertake before entering my local Gurdwara. I was christened when I was a baby but I have never been religious, I never attended a church other than for weddings, funerals etc. There is a beautiful Gurdwara near me that stands out in the sky like the fabled star in the tale of the 3 wise men travelling to meet the baby Jesus and while I always thought it was an impressive building, only recently have I seriously considered entering. I know that the temple will be welcoming to all but I'm looking for somewhere I can seriously attain sot eme spirituality. I have searched for a long time, in the past using drugs and whatnot and have come to a conclusion that one of the biggest problems in the UK is the lack of spirituality. We have not been overly religious in the UK for centuries but church would still be attended by most and certainly our heads of state/government were informed heavily by their religion. It is well documented (though rarely discussed) that the people of the UK lost their spirituality and firm belief in the creator around the years 1914-1918 and had this destruction of faith reinforced between 1939 and 1945. When I was growing up, almost no-one attended church and to do so was seen as almost barbaric, something people did in th epast as now we have telephones and televisions, we didn't need religion. God was dead and he wasn't coming back. We had technology which kept progressing to mobile phones and laptops and internet. Incredible. Now our time is filled and we can communicate and lean and be happy knowing that we have more knowledge at our fingertips than was contained in the library of Alexandria! Within seconds we can speak with someone on the other side of the world or we can watch the mating ritual of birds of paradise while simultaneously watching a Bengal Tiger stalk its prey. Now we see the results of our labour. The bubble has burst and since the 70s there has been a clear slide of people towards hating themselves and the world they live in. There is no purpose anymore, no meaning. Yes we can get drunk or take drugs or have sex, but in the morning we will ask ourselves why are we doing this? What is the point? These questions cannot be answered by Physics or biology. Evolution explains so much to us and gives us great knowledge but it does not explain where it all came from. Quantum physics tells us that the world we see or touch may not be real at all, it may be best described as a computer simulation or a fevered dream. Particles are popping in and out of existence and nothing stays the same, yet we experience the world as we do. Our consciousness seems to separate humans from all other species, yet anyone who has tried LSD or Ayuhuasca or DMT will say that there is a world beyond ours. All the religions from all over the world say something similar. There is something else beyond this material world. Beyond even the observable universe. I now firmly believe that this is where the idea of God comes from. From the most ancient peoples we know of down to the present dy the idea of god has always persisted. I always thought it was a simple explanation and as human as anything, think of the religions as an commercial enterprise, in order to get more currency/followers they must make claims about truth and power, knowledge and love, feelings and thoughts. I think that if we strip away most of the teachings and teachers from these religions we see a common denominator. A sense of a supernatural being who is beyond time and space who supervises our world and probably all worlds. Now I will never understand this of course, it is like they speak of in science when they talk of a fourth dimension, it is not something I will ever know. Perhaps though, I can get a sense of it, perhaps through meditation and work I can open up the part of my mind which will let Gods power in. My basic understanding of Sikhi leads me to believe that what I believe and what Sikhs teach is similar. I understand that the gurus have the power of god, that he uses his power through them and in turn can enlighten followers. I know it is more compliacted than this and I haven't read enough to pretend that I understand your religion but I am looking for truth. I have always looked for truth through philosophy and science, eventually through drugs and meditation and what I have learned is that I don't want to use drugs, I don't want to keep reading philosophers and science (as they are written by man and thus their ideas are often obstructed by their ego). I'm asking you honestly, can I become a Sikh and how should I do it? There is a beautiful Gurdwara near me where I know I would be welcome as is the custom of all Sikhs but I do not want to go there as an observer, I wish to genuinely know if I can become a Sikh as I see it as the best chance at uncovering the truth I crave. I don't expect to ever know the truth, but based on the Sikhs I have met, those I have seen fighting for what is right, this is the only religion I know of that I would be willing to commit my time to. The only one I would fight for. Will I be welcomed?

    I think you should look up the last part of "oxymoron" in the dictionary, as it applies to you. Or just go and serve your Hindu masters!

    There is nothing wrong with being a Hindu, in fact, you should be very proud that you are a Hindu. However, there is everything wrong with being a Sikh. Hindus raped and killed our daughters, sisters, and mothers, and Hindus killed Sikhs, even few month old Sikhs kids were burned by Hindus during Sikh genocide of 1984. After the genocide, these Hindu killers were made MPs, MLAs, and ministers by majority (90%) Hindu vote. Hindus (and some so called "Sikhs" like you) named Delhi airport after Indira Gandhi that is akin to naming airport after Massa Rangar, who like Indra, destroyed Harmandir Sahib. Yes, I absolutely agree that if you are a Hindu then you should be proud, but if you are a Sikh, then that is a different story. The worst thing is that at this time most of the Sikhs are sucking up to the same people who persecuted them, oh well, I don't want to take this thread on that tangent. We all probably have Hindu friends, and I am not judging each Hindu, just the majority Hindu population. When Sikhs ask for Justice, these majority Hindus call us terrorist. I don't think your simple Hindu mind will be able to grasp this information, and if you are a Sikh, then apparently you don't have any self-esteem or courage to stand up.

    having respect for sikhi means little , I mean atheists have been known to say that out of all faiths they respect Sikhi the most. Sikhi is a 'doing' rather than 'being' faith , when you stop doing sikhi you stop being sikh simple as that

    This girl says she was sexually abused from a young age, until she left home. If that is true, I'm not surprised she has rejected her roots.

    Ok abu abeeda you carry on child Grown up's who really loved Sikhi would defend Sikhi, Sikh identity and Sikh population seeing how demographics are key to survival whereas you cant see that cos your not one of us so advocate interfaith marriages between sikhs and non-sikhs. As for Guru Ji's 52 haukum look them up as I told you many times. From now on you will be ignored and not addressed by me. Mods want a non-sikh troll like you here to divert topics and damage this forum thats up to them. I for one will not entertain your nonsense no more.

    With the way things are now there is no strong leader who will rise in that situation and get the people behind him for Khalistan. What will happen is Punjab will likely be a priority target for the attacking nation to cut off water and food supplies. Im sure Sikhs will only suffer if such wars break out.

    Anyone willing to help expose the filth in bible teachings and in Christianity overall? It's time we give punjabi Christians scumbags a little pay back for all their sly conversions and digs they have been doing to Sikhi over their years without any reaction from Sikhs. Its time the Sikhs on mass expose Christianity. e.g The following passage describes the sickening practice of sex slavery. How can anyone think it is moral to sell your own daughter as a sex slave? When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

    you have no right to tell Sikhs on their knowledge of Sikhi since your not a Sikh. Why are you here anyways no one wants you here, your just an anti-sikh troll that's been tolerated far too long on here. You contribute nothing positive only promoting anti-sikh narrative, agenda and rhetoric. As far as I am concerned you are the far left marxist atheist punjabi sunny hundal of this forum whose views are irrelevant.

    Now the real question is what are we gonna do about those scenes? Are we gonna let him do beadbi? This video was trending in the YouTube section for a very long time, and many youngsters aspire to be like him.. the time isn't very far away when like that "baba" in the sunglasses, the kids will start screaming VAYE FATEH when all someone does is say Fateh. It's always the ones inside the kaum that do the most damage whether it be directly or indirectly. Not only that Muslim, Christians, Hindus, Jewish brothers will think of our anand karaj as a joke as well. Not a good first impression to give about sikhs.. just saying

    How about you send your mum to go get impregnated by Prince William so your dream of a future Sikh King of the UK can maybe become a reality? Mods can you make a new fantasy/fairytale section on the site for the deluded, low intellect retards that frequent this site? Really has got to be my last visit to this site, some of the rubbish on here could induce brain damage

    This website officially is a representation of why sikhs are a laughing stock & not even a shadow of what mahraj wanted us to be. The sheer level of low intellect, tunnel visioned & fairy tale rubbish that appears on this site is a joke. This is my last post on here

    Three things: One: Some women have become so expert with the 'war paint' that they can make themselves look really attractive with it but when it comes off - the opposite is true. This ain't fair on guys who get conned into being with someone who is essentially wearing a mask that is nothing like their true physical self - with the ensuing confusion and shock when the mask is removed. Second thing: People don't wan't to end up like Jagsaw, who obviously looks at other people's attractive wives and then looks at his own, and then falls into depression. Everyone should make efforts to keep themselves in good, presentable shape. Same way a Singh shouldn't get married, get too comfortable and let go, and turn into a bloated lard ar5ed, beached whale - now that he has 'captured' his missus. Lastly: As dyslexia is to writing, and dyscalculia to maths skills, a helluva lot of Sikh women seem to have some condition with renders them completely incapable of utilising make up products in any balanced way. Their choice of colours (usually bright and the opposite of subtle, pretty much like a farmers bhangra paa-ing outfit) coupled with the share amount of product they use can often lead to them looking like this (see image below - you know we've all seen aunties that look exactly like this!). If they must use it, many need to be trained on how to do so, so the whole endeavour doesn't become self-defeating. Less is more in this respect.
