    This clearly that you are not a Sikh. Invoke the help of other Matas ( hindu goddess) to to stick your chosen religion( Hinduism).

    Can you tell us your fairy tale of hindu "amrit." How on earth can you compare that to Guru Gobind Singh's AMRIT!

    Had arti with divas been correct, Guru Nanak would not have composed Arti.

    Nothing to do with phobia. If one is a Sikh he/she will not believe in any pakands/fasts/vaanshs/artis with divas etc.

    I can only laugh at your immaturity and lack of thinking ability. Hindu concept of Amrit has nothing to do with Amrit which was started by Guru Gobind Singh.

    Pen Jee, first of all, forgive yourself. Your past was a lesson to learn and not to be repeated again, secondly, it is not a life sentence to be carried as a burden on your head. In His darbar, only forgiveness and love are showered constantly. He can never judge anyone, for if He was to do so, nobody could have a place to hide away, that is to our benefit, of Him not being judgemental. Now onwards look forward for His Jot, through keertan, katha, and bhakti, to guide you and protect you from any downfall, even then, get up as many times as needed, after all our battle with the mind is like a tennis match, we should respònd back strongly to the mind, until it looses the match, but the thing is, in any case we should not give up. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal

    This your unfulfilled desire is not killing you, it is just a strong temptation of your mind. Rather I would say, you are brave by resisting it, keep resisting it and handle yourself to Wahiguru to give you inner strenghth But If you ever allow yourself to this paap, then for sure you will destroy your atma in the purgatory realms. Know the trickery nature of the mind and face it bravely. It first creates the wrong desires, then when one falls prey to them, then it makes one feel guilty, in the mean time a karam is made, for which one will have to pay by being strongly chained in the wheel of births and deaths, thus its assignated job is accomplished. We as sikhs, have to be brave, for we have Him with us. Knbowing this we should fight with all our powers until our last breath, to not commit any such bad karam, for which we may feel shame to show our face to Him. Stay blessed. Sat Sree Akal.

    There’s definitely an issue in the way we’re raising our females. Because out of all the girls from the diaspora, it’s Sikh girls that marry out with Muslims the most. This trend is becoming far too noticeable to ignore. Why are our females in the West, especially in the UK, marrying Muslims? I mean if they’re bent on marrying out then why not white Christians, or Punjabi Hindus? Why is it mostly Muslims? I can only attribute it to one thing and that is the parents. I personally think when our elders demonize Muslims, which by the way is rightly done - we have suffered too greatly at their hands, then the Muslim becomes a forbidden thing for the Sikh youth. When a parent tells their child that he/she cannot marry a Muslim at all, they realize that’s what they can’t have. And human psychology works in a way that you want to have what you can’t have, and so their ultimate act of rebellion becomes marrying a Muslim. And I think because of the frequent interactions Sikhs have with Muslims in the UK, and given that Muslims are found everywhere in the major cities of the UK, Sikh parents have to ingrain this rule of not marrying with Muslims sternly. Whereas in the US/Canada, we’re usually told it’s white people we can’t marry, and it’s not so surprising that when North American Sikhs do marry out, it’s usually with a white partner. So what I’m trying to get at is that perhaps parents shouldn’t even bring up Muslims, but that’s hard for us Sikhs, because so much of our latter history is intertwined with them. So how can we prevent ingraining in our children that Muslims are a forbidden fruit, that they have to have. I think it personally comes down to teaching them about the religion’s corrupted morality and the history of Muhammad.

    Like many concepts in Sikhi such as Miri -Piri or being a Sant-Sipahi, there is a question of balance. Two completely diametrically opposed things used in unison. This is something that must apply in this instance also. I find that in this Universe that there seems to be a push and pull factors that seem to be contradict each other but are very complementary when used together. If Sikhs want to do good in the world and for mankind then they cannot help the world if there are fewer and fewer Sikhs until there are no Sikhs left. However, if you put yourself first then you are better equipped to see humanity. Even selfishness and selflessness are not mutually exclusive.

    No place in sri dasam granth has it been written that guru sahib’s name was dusht daman, but we still believe that guru sahibs name was dusht daman in satyug. PS: Please go to Hazur Sahib and then come back and talk to me, because otherwise you are gonna spew unnecessary retoric.

    HIndus also have amrit, you're saying we should stop doing stuff because Hindus do it. So please enlighten me. As usual you do nothing but run your mouth. Honestly, the least you can do is form conjugate sentences so they are at-least semi comprehensible.

    Tell that to all the other Sikhs who don't fit your narrow-minded rigid definition of what a Sikh is as well. It's people like you who turn others away from Sikhi because you continue to attempt to dissolve any and all practises you deem to be anti-Sikh or Hindu which have in fact been around since the advent of Sikhi. Keep your wishy-washy reform faith to yourself. If you are what constitutes a Sikh then I'd rather not be be one. ਮਾ ਸਰਸਵਤੀ ਤੇਰੇ ਬੁੱਧੀ ਤੇ ਕਿਰਪਾ ਕਰੇ ਤੇ ਸਾਰੇ ਨੁਕਸ ਕੱਢੇ

    Pray to God to give you some sense to understand simple stuff. Hope below helps Aarti and Sikh Maryada The Panthic Sikh Rehit Maryada, the official Sikh Code of Conduct, states: ਸ) ਉਪਰ ਦੱਸੇ ਸਾਮਾਨ ਤੋਂ ਇਲਾਵਾ ਧੂਪ ਜਾਂ ਦੀਵੇ ਮਚਾ ਕੇ ਆਰਤੀ ਕਰਨੀ, ਭੋਗ ਲਾਉਣਾ, ਜੋਤਾਂ ਜਗਾਉਣੀਆਂ, ਟੱਲ ਖੜਕਾਉਣੇ ਆਦਿ ਕਰਮ ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਅਨੁਸਾਰ ਨਹੀਂ[ ਹਾਂ, ਸਥਾਨ ਨੂੰ ਸੁਗੰਧਿਤ ਕਰਨ ਲਈ ਫੁੱਲ, ਧੂਪ ਆਦਿ ਸੁਗੰਧੀਆਂ ਵਰਤਣੀਆਂ ਵਿਵਰਜਿਤ ਨਹੀਂ[ ਕਮਰੇ ਅੰਦਰ ਰੌਸ਼ਨੀ ਲਈ ਤੇਲ,ਘੀ ਜਾਂ ਮੋਮਬੱਤੀ, ਬਿਜਲੀ, ਲੈਂਪ ਆਦਿ ਜਗਾ ਲੈਣੇ ਚਾਹੀਦੇ ਹਨ[ d. Anything except the afore-mentioned reverential ceremonies, for instance, such practices as the Aarti (waving of a platter with burning lamps and incense set in it in vertical circular motion) with burning incense and lamps, offerings of eatables to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, burning of lights, beating of gongs, etc., is contrary to Gurmat (the Guru's way). However, for the perfuming of the place, the use of flowers, incense and scent is not barred. For light inside the room, oil or butter-oil lamps, candles, electric lamps, kerosene oil lamps, etc., may he lighted. In the same spirit, Sant Gurbachan Singh Bhindranwale, a Gurbani scholar and saint, clearly explains what Aarti means in the Sikh religion in 'Gurbaani Paath Darpan'. In chapter of Akhand Paath maryada, page 168, Sant Ji writes: ਆਰਤੀ ੳਚਾਰਨੀ, ਦੀਵੇ ਨਹੀਂ ਬਾਲਣੇ,ਕੇਵਲ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਪੜਨੇ ਅਤੇ ਕੀਰਤਨ ਕਰਨਾ, ਫਿਰ ਕੜਾਹ ਪ੍ਰਸ਼ਾਦ ਵੰਡਣਾ ਅਤੇ ਖੁੱਲਾ ਲੰਗਰ ਕਰਨਾ। "Do Aarti, don't light lamps, only read Shabads of Aarti and Do Kirtan, then distribute Karah Parshad and have open Langar."

    Absolutely agree with this post. But the problem is that in Western countries, like the US/UK, its hard to have large families living in the same region due to work and financial differences. I think its one thing to be surrounded by fellow Sikhs, but another to be surrounded by family. So its possible to live in a Sikh area in the West, but its very difficult to surround yourself with family. That's why you have Islamic sexual grooming cases happening with Sikh girls so often in the UK. Also, having plenty of siblings is a must. Not only for Sikh population growth, but also for companions that help/protect/share with you. Children with multiple siblings are far less vulnerable to converting out than a single child for example.

    Brother Guest Jee, this much I can tell you : "Life is a circle of happiness, sadness, hard times, and good times. If you are going through hard times have faith that good times are on the way." First of all accept yourself as you are, do not try to run away as a coward, for if you stand with courage and hope in Wahiguru´s wisdom and potence, you have nothing to fear. Nobody is perfect, not all have some conditions nor surroundings, so no matter wherever you are now, keep on fighting with your negative tendencies, one day, no matter how long it may take, you will win for sure. But if you do any nonsense as you said above with suicidal thoughts, then for sure you are a culprit a wrongdoer, for Wahiguru gave you this human life to fight as a brave sikh, and with His kirpa return to Him. So if you do any nonsense, you will be drowned in the wheel of endless births and deaths, who knows, when ill you get a human life again, moreover, if you do not make the best of it now, what guarantee is there, that you will be better after? You have taken the first step of your uplifting as a human being, by being aware of you bad habits, it will take you time and determination to get up, in the meanwhile, you may fall down again several times, but nevertheless, do not give up. For as long as you breathe to your end, keep fighting, keep fighting as a sikh with the sword of your will power, and the shield of His grace, which is more than enough, to fight the evil. Stay blessed at all times. Sat Sree Akal.

    Marriage, escorts, online pornography, philandering "with a gori" is not going to improve anything. You're dealing with sexual addiction, and even if you were to marry, and by the way no one should marry just to satisfy their sexual needs, its not going to fix the addiction. In fact I've heard of many marriages get destroyed due to partners being sexually addicted. You need to get to the root of the problem, which is your mentality. Your constantly thinking about sex because you aren't busy enough. Easy way to break away from all of this is to get busy, and I mean real busy. Burn yourself out each and every day, but do it with meaning and purpose. Define a purpose, apart from a religious one, in your life. What do you want to be in 10 years? Work towards that goal. I'm currently working towards becoming a physician, and day in and day out it's what keeps me going. I suggest you find a life goal, a major goal, and work towards it. Get off the Internet, its a great informative world, but its hell as well! Limit your Internet usage, or whatever outlet that you get your sexual material from, limit it and then cut it off completely. You mentioned you were visiting webcams at night, well maybe you need to tire yourself out so you aren't up at night browsing webcams. Go to the gym, work on your body, tire yourself out so that the only thing you're doing at night is sleeping. I'll just end off by saying that you will fail the first few times because you're addicted. And any addiction can't be cut off immediately, it takes time. You're gonna have to gradually cut off the porn consumption, and trust me, when you do that, all those sexual thoughts that cloud your mind will clear out. Put your focus to somewhere productive. And as far as Sikhi and meditation goes, when you feel most vulnerable, read Gurbani. It'll not only distract you but inspire you to control your kaam. Another thing where you said if you "let it out with a gori" is not going to fix any thing. Stop fetishizing white women, blonde women, women in general, and sexual pleasure isn't something that can be satiated, it has to be kept under check. So keep it under check!

    Though I agree that men in general are losing their masculinity. The question still remains, why do Sikh women marry out with Muslims the most? If Muslims are more aggressive than Sikhs, well then Sikhs are more so than Hindus. But you don’t see their women running off with Muslim men at the rate our women do? Though I attribute that masculinity plays a huge part in attraction, I would like to mention that most UK Sikhs I’ve interacted with, like my cousins, are far more aggressive and masculine than their American/Canadian counterparts, so there definitely has to be more variables at play here. I’m also sure that Muslims despise us Sikhs more so than Hindus and thus target our women more than other women. But what really irks me is when you have our women standing up for Muslims, like Katy Sian. I don’t see any Muslim women reciprocating that, so what I’m trying to get at is what instills that feeling of love towards Muslims in our women? I think it comes down to years of our elders demonizing Muslims so much that our children, especially our women, begin empathizing with them. I personally think this is where the issue lies. But then again, our men to need become more masculine. And I don’t only mean aggressive, but also look the part. I’ve seen too many Amritdhari Sikhs that are overweight, unfit, and just look plain soft. These men need to harden up. Also as @MisterrSingh mentioned what the Muslims are doing, why don’t we actively bring womenfolk of other religions into our fold? Why is that we are letting our women marry out, yet ourselves do not marry out to bring other women into the fold. If Khurram can get a Sikh women to have Muslim children through simple attraction, then what’s stopping us. I often hear fellow Sikhs saying numbers aren’t important, but let’s be honest, it’s all a numbers game when the going gets tough.

    We should learn from their growth success. This demographic advantage is what helped swell our own panths population from our grandparents generation when 8 kids was the norm. If just 2 generations after them had carried forward with the same numbers we would be a solid majority in punjab and a significantly bigger minority in the 5 states next to punjab. Not to mention bigger numbers in thd west. We really need to learn from our paki cousins.

    Go and see a counseller immediately. It's very important. Many say they can deal with problems alone but we're very fortunate to have counsellers and psychiatrists who can talk us through things and professionally help us to heal. Alot of Sikhs fall and rise again and you probably don't hear about it. Don't beat yourself up about it, the past is the past. Ask for forgiveness and u are forgiven, He loves us unconditionally and just because we may not recognize His presence, he is always right here, staring us straight in the face, 24/7. He hears Every prayer we make whether loud or quiet. Admit your shortcomings and give up your stress(fears). Relax, breathe, go for a walk in nature, go for a swim, a massage and de-stress. But most importantly Go and see a COUNSELLER.

    Tell them He is the Lord himself, He is not bound by anything, His wish is Hukum for us, we as sikhs, do not even ever question such nonsense. Seriously, these people are so much marriage oriented and all that nonsense , that they are not at all interested in the teachings, but, to create controversy and doubts. Pen jee I strongly recomend you, you to stay away from their sangat, they are no good for us, nor any others as well. You can see their responsibility in the huge problems in the world, as of hatred, violence, disrespect to women, wars, terrorism, backward in education and progress, anyone under their influence, is blocked in time , space, and above all, evolution as spiritual beings. They drag humanity to the level of ego, madness, and beasts. Once again, stay away from their company, for if they really respected you, they would dare not ask you such a foolish and a wicked question.

    But our Gurus did ultimately define Sikhi and layed down a dogma for us in the GGS, one that needs to be followed, right? The principals are part of the Sikh dogma, and the dogma preserves the message. Now I could be looking at this from a very narrow-minded perspective, but I'm sorry brother, I'm unable to understand how upholding the dogmas will compromise the principals, when they're interdependent on each other. And yes you're right that Sikhi is sanji, however if you have some people bringing in their own inference to Sikhi, which clearly goes against its principles, such as casteism, and they identify as Sikhs, then I think we as a community must take action and correct those miscreant ways, otherwise those certain inidividuals aren't following the Sikh way of life, which itself is very clearly defined and fleshed out.

    I'll admit that I haven't understood the Dasam Granth in its entirety, so perhaps I should first read through it, understand it from all perspectives, and I would then be in a better position on offering my opinion of it. But I agree with you that the Sri Charitopakhyan is not only critiquing women, but also men. It's just the wording, which in other parts, such as the tales, can get quite vulgar, and my initial response of certain parts being deemed inappropriate was based off of that. I will, however, definitely make time to go through the Dasam Granth in its entirety, and not only glaze over the controversial passages.

    Listen I'm not a Dasam Granth opponent. In fact, I think certain parts should be read and applied and it should be seen in Gurudwaras, but the sexually explicit nature of some of the tales, albeit describing the downfall lead by kaam, are far too explicit for something a Guru would write, and with the Dasam Granth being lost after the Battle of Kup, it certainly raises valid suspicion that perhaps some of the writings aren't of Guru Gobind Singh's. And yes I was talking about Sri Charitropakhyan.
