    VJKK VJKF Ji Hmm... MrDoaba has never been well per say... He's just having a break though. Spending his time wisely. Entertaining kaamdeva and his ਤੋਤਾ. I'll pass on your concerns, though I'm afraid he won't hear them for the brown RSS kashera he's managed to stuff in his ears. Hare ਓਮ. On a real though, he's fine. ਏਨੀ ਛੇਤੀ ਨੀ ਖੇੜਾ ਛੁਟਣ ਵਾਲਾ l

    this is so true Even sikhs are forgetting grihast jeevan promoted all the way from Guru Nanak. People are stuck in dating waste mentality at the age when elders were already married. By the time people are getting married, they have grown too old to be able to grow up with their marriage partner. They may even have wasted time growing up with boyfriend/girlfriend, not a publicly respectable partnership in sikh family. Only problem with boyfriend or girlfriend is that he/she will not have been brought up to respect others's parents. Doing this izzat-less dating things, they won't have izzat when they're married. The daughters aren't being given the sanskar to be married, and neither are the sons. And no amount of money will make up for the lack of sanskar being taught. With these shrabbi-pendus, racism towards their own turban wearers is also being spread like a poison inside sikh community. Along with other kurahits such as tobacco/shisha/hookah and halal. Once you get a haircut, it becomes much easier to commit other kurahits.

    Yes as an Irish person I have absolutely no idea about british racism. The "new fact" that blew your mind simply isn't new. I get why you're excited, but people who have known this for a long time simply aren't going to be as jazzed up about it. Which is why I welcomed you to the table. You and the racist brits now know. Congrats. And yes. It's been known a long time. That isn't the first reconstruction that shows the original Europeans as dark and it's always been known by the Irish, here is a 2006 article about the fomorians. https://www.africaresource.com/rasta/articles/african-roots-of-ireland/ I grew up hearing this my whole life. If you look up the term black irish you will find many different definitions of what that means, but in my family's oral tradition it was used in this context. https://www.africaresource.com/rasta/sesostris-the-great-the-egyptian-hercules/the-original-africans-of-europe-by-ogu-eji-ofo-annu/ Here is a 2007 reference to dark skinned original Europeans. I had encountered this information at least 20 years ago, but I'm not digging too hard for you. Welcome to the table. I get why you're excited. It just isn't news to many people. Combined with the long standing knowledge that everyone was originally black, you'll just have to excuse those who's minds aren't blown. I don't need you to simplify anything. I need you to catch up and take some deep breaths.

    This is a place of discourse. I just express my opinion. Our views are simply from different angles. I bear you no ill will. Say what you like. I will do the same. I agree with you occasionally and have quoted you favorably. I'd like your posts sometimes but I can't due to your forum bans. What I won't do is suggest you kill yourself. Also I won't be insulted or intimidated into silence.

    It is dowry by any other name. Your final paragraph, all the above. Do they want to make the brides life easier - yes. Do they want to make the groom's family happy - yes. Could they be using this as a way of currying other favours in the future - possibly. Should you express your disatisfaction regarding this - you can possibly tell your wife that you might not be happy with this. However , the caveat is her Indian thinking might think that you are jealous because your sandu is getting cash and prizes and you and your family got diddly squat. You cannot stop your in-laws giving cash and prizes but if you express your disatisfaction it may not be well received or appreciated.

    If you aren't trolling. Not placing bets on that. That is like a sick man feeling unworthy of medicine. Do your paath. Explain to the poor girl what happened and set proper boundaries. Vaheguru saw that coming a mile away so there's no hiding. Redouble your commitment and learn and grow.

    I think you’re jumping the gun. You and nobody knows what discussions have taken place about the future of his bride to be. Nobody is saying he is exempt from the responsibilities which come with being an Amritdhari but maybe he really likes her soul and maybe she has agreed to walk the path of a Gursikh. You think you are the only ‘Siana Banda’ who can see that this not correct according to rehit. I’m sure Jagmeet Singh has been advised on this so just wait and see. You should stop this witch hunt and support the only credible political candidate who many Sikhs have been waiting for too long.

    There is no solution! Welcome to Kalyug. People have changed along with the challenges of the times. Both men and women are getting married at a later age (30+) so they no longer have the tolerance to accommodate their partner or their partners families. The too set in their ways of what the perceive as being comfortable. In 80’s it wasn’t uncommon to see a bride and groom get married between the age 18-21. You would regularly see girls who were put through education by the in-laws and slowly moving towards a career path within a few years into the marriage. The boy would often be in the same situation and probably clueless about their future. The married couple were still in their youth and were slowly growing into adulthood with the presence and advise of elders within the family unit. Somehow this setup worked quite well and still kept the marriages strong and successful. Nowadays everybody wants the complete article before marriage, usually comprising of education of some importance, well settled in a career, a big salary, a business, big detached house, a nice car, multiple properties to boast about, money in the bank for holidays and the cherry on top is no in-laws within 5 miles. The success of the marriages of the previous generations were down to being young and sharing hardship along the way. Sometimes this is the glue that keeps families together. Joint decisions come into play and you are forced sacrifice yourselves for the sake of others. This is not seen now as people are so selfish and impatient for material wealth and so called independence that they are ruthless when it comes down tolerating anyone other than themselves. But the odd thing is they are still unhappy!

    You've made some fair points here. Let me answer on how we can stop this though We don't need to go out and start saving the community. All we have to do is save our own home. Each and every one of us. And that, itself, will save the whole community. Don't drink yourself, be an example for your children and other children that look up to you. Don't encourage the behavior, and that means not playing Bhangra tracks that promote alcohols/drugs. Explain the dangers to children at a young age. Scare the s*** out of them, if need be. Just don't let them touch the bottle. Now I know most of us probably don't have children, including myself, but this is something we should be prepared for when we do. The last generation, even the current generation probably can't be saved as they've already started the habit, but its possible to save the next generation. No one needs to be a local superhero to end the alcohol crisis our community faces, just set things right at home, and we should be all good.

    source: http://www.sikhawareness.com/topic/7674-know-your-real-self/ source: Discourse on beyond II ~ Know your Real Self ~ First descended from Waheguru (God), a transparent ray, the conscious reality, which combing with nature took the epithet of living being. Round this ray, spread a mini globe- like substance, and the ray became resplendent. This state has been termed as the first separation (isolation) of atma(soul) from god(paratma) and has been called the sheath of bliss. After this, with the coming of thinking, one automatically moves into second circle of Maya (illusion). This is Miracle of Intellect. It was named the intellect of sheath. Descending lower still, there awakened the idea of making some achievement of producing something new. Affections and allurements brought this being under their control and pushed him into countless programmes, which are ever-expanding, so that the chain is never broken. The state of mind has been called the mental sheath. One was caught in the circle of resolution and repudiation. Beyond this stage, the cosmic energy pushed it still further down and called it the circle of power or the vital sheath. This power was born out of the relationships of the illusion. After this, it assumed some form and went on assuming different forms. As Guru Maharaj has ordained- For several births thou became a worm and a moth. In several birth thou wert an elephant, a fish and a deer. In several births thou became a birth and a snake. In several births thou were t yoked as a horse and a ox. SGGS JI- 176. This cirlce of different bodies is called "Annmayee Kosh". Kosh the sheath of food. In this way, this pure consciousness (drop) went on amassing around it tendencies towards illusions. It forgot its real nature and completely lost thought of the fact as to Who I am, and wherefrom I have come. Not recognizing oneself as the pure (divine) light, one started looking on oneself as just the body, which is made of five elements which is subject to all sorts of ills. The wise called this circle as sheath of food. It forsook it's real state of supreme happiness and considering oneself as the being of dust, it from the time immortal, has been going through the circle of births and deaths and has been experiencing untold miseries. He has been weeping and crying and lamenting. He does not realize how could he reunited with his original source(God), Who is all truth, all super consciousness and never ending bliss; and return to his original stage. So caught in miseries, he keeps on lamenting. The seers, the prophets, the saints and sages, philosophers, and those who have known the secrets of the Divine have told man many supernatural ways to the real true path. These prophets having coming out of the source of all purity appeared in the most holy forms. They by their saying gave to man the gospel of vedas and puranas, bible and holy writ all of which assumed their loftiest form in the shape of Siri Guru Granth Sahib. The fifth emperor of the world Guru Arjan Dev has commanded thus, to free his being from the circle of world of woe- Sing the praise of the lord, O friendly saints, with alertness and single mindedness. SGGS JI - 295 This is a very simple path, treading on which man, over coming countless obstacles one can merge into his real self, which is all light. To achieve this goal, concentration of mind is extremely necessary. So long as one does not know how to achieve concentration of mind, that long all his prayers and other efforts remain fruitless. There are some tendencies of mind, which do not allow one to achieve concentration of mind. Of these, the first tendency is named Mentality of Evidence. 1. Mentality of Evidence (Parman Birthi/Regarding the outward world as the Supreme reality)- Whatever is the spread that is visible, they may be children, wife, parents, one's own body the different relationships of the bodies, friends, enemies, things that brings joys or sorrows remaining engrossed in all these things is termed Mindset of evidence. To withdraw the mind from this world of sights and sounds seems extremely difficult. Till one gets the guidance of a perfect Guru, one cannot be liberated from this visible world. Guru Maharaj's sermon is- All that is seen, shall go not with thee, O Man. So abandon thou thy self-conceit and worldly attachment SGGS Ji- 1230 This being knows that he is not to stay in this world for all time, nor are sons and daughters, wife, parents eternal in the world, yet when one of them dies, he is over-whelmed with unbearable grief at their separation and can't rise above this slush. 2. The reverse mindset ( viparje birthi)- The second type of mentality is named the Reverse Mindset. In this stage, everything appears the opposite of what it is; things non-existent appear to have existed, and things existing seem non-existing. It is like the example of a traveling in summer through the desert, where man being tortured by thirst is desperately in need of water to quench his thirst. In the desert land, he has mirage that a river over-flowing with cold water is flowing at some distance from him. This deception seems to give to him some feeling to be a true fact. But when he reaches that place, he finds nothing there. It was just a mirage. Similarly, everyday he sees the world with his eyes and hears it with his ears and regards this outward world as full truth. Before our very eyes, this world is seen passing away. SGGS JI - 325 Still he regards the world as a true reality. On the other hand Waheguru Ji, who is omnipresent and is immanent everywhere- Wherever I see, there I see him present. He, my master, is never far from any place. O my soul, ever remember him, who is contained in everything. SGGS Ji- 677 In the earth, in the sky There pervades a light in all. It can't be added to, nothing can be subtracted from it. It permits no change (Akal Ustati, Siri Dasam Granth). According to this holy write, inside and outside, all is full of good. With his power, go on the entire operation of the world; with the power of his name, the world appears, man regards this all pervading spirit as untrue. There is not trace of doubt in such a person. He feels that the world around him is all truth and God, who is All-perfection, spread all-round in the Universe is untrue. This mentality is called opposite Mindset. Guru Maharaj makes reference to it- This world is the mountain of smoke. What thought has made thee deem it real? SGGS Ji- 1187. 3. The sleeping mentality (niranda birthi)- The third type of mentality is called sleeping mindset. Man knows all and reads all, still he keeps lost under the power of sleep. This stage of forgetting the Reality is called the sleeping mentality. 4. Alternative Mentality (vikalp birthi)- The four kind is named Alternative mentality. Man does small good acts such as giving charity, the recitation of the bani and holy singing, and with the aid of these small items, he has hope of great fruit. In other words, under the influence of this mentality, one feels the great effect of desires. Little service and alternative mentality does not allow the mind to achieve full concentration in the prayers to God. 5. Remembering Mentality (Simriti Birthi)- The fifth type is the Remembering Mentality. When a person begins prayer and obeisance to God, when he starts recitation of the gospel, and when he tries to unite his consciousness with God's name, he has memories of long-forgotten things. This memory mindset does not allow him to offer prayers whole heartedly; his reading of the holy texts won't bear fruit. Try to understand this fact by means of a parable. When Guru Nanak, the emperor of the world, while bathing in the Bein River plunged into water and came out after three days, he was repeating only one saying- I am Neither a Hindu, Nor a Muslim. My body and soul belong to Him, who is called God of Muslims and the lord of Hindus. SGGS Ji- 1136 --- Source: Japji sahib teeka by sant gyani gurbachan singh bhindrnawale pdf page- 419

    Interesting question, unfortunately don't know the answer. Vaishakhi is coming up in april, there will be lots of amrit sanchars occurring across the country, just call them gurdwara and ask panj pyares directly instead of relying on indirect inferences here, just ask i have a friend who belongs to hijare(transsexual) category , is he/she allowed to take amrit?. If its allowed, don't think you have to pick singh or kaur then there nor they assigned to you, at least not that i am aware of.? I would think its not clear cut-simple yes or no, its probably assessed case by case basis depending on seeker interest in sikhi and state of mind. According to my understanding panj pyares (pacha ka gur ek dyaan) mostly they only operate and concentrate on/from universal all pervading guru(pure consciousness in all ) which exist in everyone and from universal sri guru granth sahib- universal sidhant of it, so fist they only see goodness so by default they operate from that point of view and assess case by case basis.

    Sexuality is different from Transgender-ism, Gay folk aren't trying to tell people God made a mistake with their body. Comparing Cancer to gender mismatch is like comparing a knife wound to an orange. Cancer can be treated, Cancer patients don't tell people that God made a mistake. They accept it and move on. Transgenders tell people God made a mistake with their gender, they're not willing to accept their body, how can you even argue that feelings such as that are in line with Gurmat. That is from Rehit, These checks were always conducts by the highest Mahapurkhs. You can look through Gurbani about accept yourself for how you are, even if you're disfigured. What's so unique about transgenders that they can't accept that their gender is the one God gave them. It was always classified as a mental disorder, only recently when the PC police arrived that people started taking that out. Trasngenderism is caused by an imbalance in the brain, the Khalsa is the saroop of the Guru. Of course they would make sure the ones who enter into it are able to uphold it without any problems. In alot of cases? Don't exaggerate. Women aren't allowed into the Panj for a valid reason, Mahapurkhs like Sant Jarnail Singh Ji all said women aren't allowed in, Woman already give birth (physical) while men give spiritual birth. There's equality. Just like God gave women a method of birth and involvement in the panth, God also gave men a role too. The Hijra were always around since the time of the Gurus, yet no record of one being inaugurated into the Panth. To argue that a social issue that was around back then is somehow a "modern" development is an insult to the all seeing eye of the Guru. Don't get me wrong, If they want to join that's fine. But they can't call themselves transgender or start telling people God made a mistake. They'll be given the surname Singh if biologically male and Kaur if otherwise a female.

    Yes jagsaw. I post all hours. In between being at the Air Force base, the Dojo and my civilian job. You regularly drop many points that you can't refute away with an insult smoke screen. I have no problem with socialism. Google apparently links that to the crab mentality though that you exemplify, which seemed oddly apt. I enjoy being here so I come often. You might think that's pathetic, but then again some might say being banned however many times and still coming is pathetic. Especially when you still demonstrate the krodi, ahankar and haumai that bought you the bans. As someone who says they wish to protect the khalsa image I don't find your personal example very compelling. You choose to ignore a prominent "khalsa" trying to ban kirpan to wage your war on Jagmeet Singh Ji's engagement. You can suggest I kill myself, I wont. Or demean me, that's fine as it will only help kill my ego, but do you want to own those words in your book and carry that burden? Which one of these crabs embodies telling someone to kill themself? Which one talks their brother back off the ledge? Which do you want to be? I'm a crab too veer ji or I wouldn't be here. The panj chor knock at my door daily. We have an opportunity however in this barrel, to uplift each other. I don't expect much from your response. No worries. Feel free to lash out, latch on to a key phrase and willfully ignore the rest. Much love.

    Well, I think that he thinks he's the only "Siana Banda" period, and will insult anybody, including those (such as me) that agree with him on that point of rehit! If you ask him to stop insulting people ... then you yourself will get insulted. Yeah, that's why, while I affirm the general principle that an amritdhari needs to marry an amritdhari, I realize we can't know the specifics of any given situation.

    I did nothing disingenuous. I did not go searching for an obscure definition to make my point. The search engine that almost everyone (91%) of people use is Google. Plug "evangelism" into Google, and you get the definition I posted: evangelism/ɪˈvan(d)ʒ(ə)lɪz(ə)m/ noun the spreading of the Christian gospel by public preaching or personal witness. Of 10 search results on the page (excluding Google's own definition), all 10 (including the oldest university in the English world--Oxford) have a Christian meaning for evangelism. Only one has a non-Christian meaning from the search result page. Hence, a Christian meaning of evangelism is entirely reasonable, and is not disingenuous by any means. Oh, and by the way, I checked this on a number of Google websites, including the US site (google.com), and the UK site (google.co.uk). As if this wasn't sufficient, I went ahead and allowed for a non-Christian meaning of evangelism in my post: The entire rest of the Sangat can check that in my post here. So who is being disingenuous?

    No worries. I believe he was a "Sikh" in the larger sense. I.e., a bhagat (a loving devotee of God) under nirgun bhagtee. The only difference between him and us is that he was not in the Rehit of Guru Gobind Singh ji, which he was not obligated to be.
