  1. Bheinji this thread is about Onebeing the OP not Bhai Jagraj Singh. Nobody is perfect so in order to progress we must learn from mistakes made by predecessors.
  2. Perfect Amrit Sanchaar is when you have 7 Sevadaars (Granthi ji, Punj Piyaras, Pehredaar) from different factions. Rehat Maryada told must be strictly as per book which should be given to Abhilakhees for perusal.
  3. One being, It is better to be under confident coz it gives a chance to learn grow. Being over confident won't let you learn will result in downfall.
  4. Ask a doc to give you an estimate of how long back could have the cancer cells developed in Bhai Jugraj Singh's body.
  5. It's true but so is keeping Sikh Sangat, Gurmat teachings, peaceful environment to nurture Gursikhs. For most sardar-sardarnis parents are true Guru not Gurbani. Rarely Bhagat Prahlad is born to King Harnakash. There's an old saying "Pita Par Poot, Nasal Par Ghoda; Bahut Nahin Par Thoda Thoda" (the son gets the nature of his father and the horse gets the traits of its race, at least to some extent if not completely)
  6. I think we are missing the major point of doing Seva which is for fulfillment of wishes. Most of us do Path but nothing happens ie no desire achieved. So we use the leverage provided in Gurbani to get Ardas done by Guru ji's Sevak "Nanak das mukh te jo bole" "Char padarath je ko mange saadh jana ki seva lage" So it's more about magic than logic !
  7. Bibis should have their own Amrit Sanchaar ceremony. There should be no male participation whatsoever. It could be an Annual Event held in different cities & countries. Question is who has the b.a.l.l.s to do it Akj or 3HO ?
  8. Bheinji at least she's being honest. It is easy for those born in Rehat keeping Amritdhari families not others.
  9. Good for you
  10. It's better to learn tricks of trade before starting your own channel. Just don't make the same blunder as Bhai Jugraj Singh of debating & hurting sentiments of Muslims. If you do Shabad Vichaar, there are a number of verses which teach not to hurt feelings of any soul as Almighty resides inside all ! Even baad-vivaad is bibarjit. It is better to seek council of learned, subdue manmat so that one doesnot make unforgivable mistakes.
  11. Don't try to make sense coz it's beyond human comprehension. Thing is, Waheguru jeeo gives money to some in abundance as per their past karma. Now mostly it is haraam di kamai, so unless they spend part of it on Dharmic kaaj. Their financial cycle will collapse or they will loose wealth. In order to keep Religious workers immune from bad effects of ill gotten wealth they are paid salary & bonus ie Mehnat da fal not hand outs. Akalpurakh works in mysterious ways
  12. I agree with Simran Bheinji. Jot Singh, doing Sehaj Path, reading translations & listening to correct pronunciation is best practice. However one mustn't dissuade Sangat from following tradition of Akhand Path, & paying trained Pathees or Gurdwara office. Difference is, they are Sevaks performing their duty & earning a living. For that reason those who host Akhand Path Seva or do Seva of Pathees also get rewarded one way or other.
  13. Did someone tell you that you had no talent? Not true! Only, the talents we have, are different. To celebrate life we need to celebrate the talent that we have. Some use their talent and some don’t, because they are not sufficiently aware that the gifts of life they have, are to be traded for other talents. The musician looks at life’s beauty through sound; the artist through visuals; the writer through words; the thinker through concepts and abstractions; the chef through culinary delights; the economist through statistics; the believer through faith; the unbeliever, perhaps through ideals.There is a whole world out there full of beauty and light that we are not privy to, because, in life, we cannot be super at everything. A multi-faceted personality may have a large number of skills, some innate and some developed. Others choose to stagnate and find the easy way out because developing a talent and celebrating it means hard work. The more focused people are, the more they concentrate on developing the talents they have. If they put these talents to good use, they uplift society and touch and change the hearts of people.We all remember the musical performances by which we were transported to another world. An orchestra, for example, is the co-ordination of many talents, with performers playing different instruments in harmony with each other. There is a parable of a master setting out on a long journey and entrusting his ‘talents’ to his servants; to one he gave one, to another two, and another five. When he returned home and asked his servants what they had done with his talents, the ones who had received two and five talents had traded their talents and won many more.The master commended these servants with the words: “Well done good and faithful servant”. But the one who had received one talent had buried and hid his talent and the master reproached him calling him a wicked man. Why was the master of the house displeased with the servant who buried his talent? Because the gifts of life have been given us to develop and grow. We rarely in life look at our talents in this way. I have a cousin gifted at the organ, who for years has played the organ as a service to others- for weddings, funerals, celebrations, the novena masses, the Sunday services, daily masses .That has meant that she used the gift of time to practice with others, to serve others, even to the extent of improvising in the church when the occasion demanded it. She has truly celebrated her talent. In a sense, even the lowliest of jobs, require some talent. There are those who enjoy the simple tasks of life. It is not what we do, but the way we do it that counts. I once met an engine driver who even enjoyed shoveling coal and pushing it into the furnace. The long engine trips did not bore him; they fascinated him, even when he was young.Don’t crave for another person’s talent or talents. We cannot all be film stars, models or star-cricketers. Don’t fix your gaze on the impossible. Closer to yourself, you will discover your own innate talents. Celebrate life by developing the talent or talents you have. The invitation is open to all, however deficient we may seem to be. http://www.speakingtree.in/article/celebrate-the-talent-that-you-have
  14. THE WAY WOMEN PRACTICE KES IN SIKHISM IS POLICED IN A GENDERED WAY. IT’S LESS ABOUT RELIGION AND MORE ABOUT KEEPING SOCIETY HAPPY WHILE PERFORMING FEMININITY. WEARING A TURBAN MAKES A WOMAN “TOO MASCULINE” AND CUTTING HER HAIR SOMEHOW MAKES HER “MORALLY LOOSE”. THE IDEAL SIKH WOMAN FOR MOST SIKHS, IS ONE WHO KEEPS THE HAIR ON HER HEAD BUT STILL REMOVES FACIAL AND BODY HAIR. WOMEN WHO CHOSE TO KEEP THEIR BODY HAIR OR CHOOSE TO WEAR THE TURBAN ARE SEEN AS MASCULINE AND NOT FIT FOR MARRIAGE.

Shabad starts around [5:37:00] in the video ਰਾਗੁ ਗੋਂਡ - ਗੁਰੂ ਰਾਮ ਦਾਸ ਜੀ - ਅੰਗ ੮੬੦ (ਸ੍ਰੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜੀ) Raag Gond - Guru Raam Daas Ji - Ang 860 (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji) ਗੋਂਡ ਮਹਲਾ ੪ ॥ Gond, Fourth Mehla: ਐਸਾ ਹਰਿ ਸੇਵੀਐ ਨਿਤ ਧਿਆਈਐ ਜੋ ਖਿਨ ਮਹਿ ਕਿਲਵਿਖ ਸਭਿ ਕਰੇ ਬਿਨਾਸਾ ॥ Serve such a Lord, and ever meditate on Him, who in an instant erases all sins and mistakes. ਜੇ ਹਰਿ ਤਿਆਗਿ ਅਵਰ ਕੀ ਆਸ ਕੀਜੈ ਤਾ ਹਰਿ ਨਿਹਫਲ ਸਭ ਘਾਲ ਗਵਾਸਾ ॥ If someone forsakes the Lord and places his hopes in another, then all his service to the Lord is rendered fruitless. ਮੇਰੇ ਮਨ ਹਰਿ ਸੇਵਿਹੁ ਸੁਖਦਾਤਾ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਜਿਸੁ ਸੇਵਿਐ ਸਭ ਭੁਖ ਲਹਾਸਾ ॥੧॥ O my mind, serve the Lord, the Giver of peace; serving Him, all your hunger shall depart. ||1|| ਮੇਰੇ ਮਨ ਹਰਿ ਊਪਰਿ ਕੀਜੈ ਭਰਵਾਸਾ ॥ O my mind, place your faith in the Lord. ਜਹ ਜਾਈਐ ਤਹ ਨਾਲਿ ਮੇਰਾ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਹਰਿ ਅਪਨੀ ਪੈਜ ਰਖੈ ਜਨ ਦਾਸਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Wherever I go, my Lord and Master is there with me. The Lord saves the honor of His humble servants and slaves. ||1||Pause|| ਜੇ ਅਪਨੀ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਕਹਹੁ ਅਵਰਾ ਪਹਿ ਤਾ ਆਗੈ ਅਪਨੀ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਬਹੁ ਬਹੁਤੁ ਕਢਾਸਾ ॥ If you tell your sorrows to another, then he, in return, will tell you of his greater sorrows. ਅਪਨੀ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਕਹਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਅਪੁਨੇ ਸੁਆਮੀ ਪਹਿ ਜੋ ਤੁਮੑਰੇ ਦੂਖ ਤਤਕਾਲ ਕਟਾਸਾ ॥ So tell your sorrows to the Lord, your Lord and Master, who shall instantly dispel your pain. ਸੋ ਐਸਾ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਛੋਡਿ ਅਪਨੀ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਅਵਰਾ ਪਹਿ ਕਹੀਐ ਅਵਰਾ ਪਹਿ ਕਹਿ ਮਨ ਲਾਜ ਮਰਾਸਾ ॥੨॥ Forsaking such a Lord God, if you tell your sorrows to another, then you shall die of shame. ||2|| ਜੋ ਸੰਸਾਰੈ ਕੇ ਕੁਟੰਬ ਮਿਤ੍ਰ ਭਾਈ ਦੀਸਹਿ ਮਨ ਮੇਰੇ ਤੇ ਸਭਿ ਅਪਨੈ ਸੁਆਇ ਮਿਲਾਸਾ ॥ The relatives, friends and siblings of the world that you see, O my mind, all meet with you for their own purposes. ਜਿਤੁ ਦਿਨਿ ਉਨੑ ਕਾ ਸੁਆਉ ਹੋਇ ਨ ਆਵੈ ਤਿਤੁ ਦਿਨਿ ਨੇੜੈ ਕੋ ਨ ਢੁਕਾਸਾ ॥ And that day, when their self-interests are not served, on that day, they shall not come near you. ਮਨ ਮੇਰੇ ਅਪਨਾ ਹਰਿ ਸੇਵਿ ਦਿਨੁ ਰਾਤੀ ਜੋ ਤੁਧੁ ਉਪਕਰੈ ਦੂਖਿ ਸੁਖਾਸਾ ॥੩॥ O my mind, serve your Lord, day and night; He shall help you in good times and bad. ||3|| ਤਿਸ ਕਾ ਭਰਵਾਸਾ ਕਿਉ ਕੀਜੈ ਮਨ ਮੇਰੇ ਜੋ ਅੰਤੀ ਅਉਸਰਿ ਰਖਿ ਨ ਸਕਾਸਾ ॥ Why place your faith in anyone, O my mind, who cannot come to your rescue at the last instant? ਹਰਿ ਜਪੁ ਮੰਤੁ ਗੁਰ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਲੈ ਜਾਪਹੁ ਤਿਨੑ ਅੰਤਿ ਛਡਾਏ ਜਿਨੑ ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰੀਤਿ ਚਿਤਾਸਾ ॥ Chant the Lord's Mantra, take the Guru's Teachings, and meditate on Him. In the end, the Lord saves those who love Him in their consciousness. ਜਨ ਨਾਨਕ ਅਨਦਿਨੁ ਨਾਮੁ ਜਪਹੁ ਹਰਿ ਸੰਤਹੁ ਇਹੁ ਛੂਟਣ ਕਾ ਸਾਚਾ ਭਰਵਾਸਾ ॥੪॥੨॥ Servant Nanak speaks: night and day, chant the Lord's Name, O Saints; this is the only true hope for emancipation. ||4||2|| https://gurbaninow.com/shabad/3220/36414
