  1. Punjab? You should have an abundance of groups to pick from. Pick any major jathebandi in the Panth, ask who their core elders are and begin to do Sangat with them. Damdami Taksal, Nanaksar, AKJ, Nihangs, etc. Pick what appeals to you and go. There are good Gursikhs in every jathebandi - find a group that appeals to you and go now.
  2. Generally, where you located (city, state/province, country)?
  3. VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH If you are concerned with the jeevan of the sevadaars who do amrit sanchars, then you may have to take time to do sangat with different groups of sangat and see which group(s) have a strong rehatvaan jeevan full of naam, bani and seva. Those groups most likely will point to the amrit sanchar you are looking for. Otherwise, do ardaas and just go - it is not worthwhile to wait if you are truly repentant and want to get back on the path of Sikhi - who knows how many breaths you have left in you?

  5. Puratan Sikhi

    VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH Find evidence in history that shows that when the Gurgaddi was transferred, parkash of Dasam Granth Sahib was also done and coconut and 5 paise were placed in front of Dasam Granth Sahib and/or Sarbloh Granth Sahib (same ceremony that was conducted to transfer Guruship from 1st to 10th Patshahi). That might do it in a convincing manner.
  6. Havan Maryada

    VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH Please go here - https://www.sikhitothemax.org/ Then type in ਹੋਮ. Change from first letter to full word (Gurakhar). The please read. Gurbani makes it clear that havan is not in line with Gurmat.
  7. VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH Why do you want to be a Sikh? Is having girls and popularity more important to you than Sikhi? What is your end goal in life? Does that goal match with the aim of Sikhi or not? I think perhaps you should ask yourself these questions and deeply consider where you want to be in life. Please don't make Sikhi a shirt that you put on and take off.
  8. Definitely need mods that can put aside their personal associations and beliefs to be fair minded and not express favoritism for any group, treating all Sikh groups fairly and stop any group from being bashed. Bring the hammer down on profanity (explicitly or other#@& stated), personal attacks and stick to the forum rules.
  9. VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH Thread started to warn about abuse...ends up with abuse.
  10. VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH Had same heerae at same age as you before marriage. Plenty of heerae (white hair) now. Now married and a family man. Don't worry about it. If you are healthy, have enough sleep, not too much stress, it may be genetic or just the way your body is. Don't worry about it. It's not the heerae that look bad, it is our unrealistic expectation that we will be ever youthful. The body is ever changing. Change your perception and learn to understand the natural beauty that Akaal Purakh has given you. http://dailysikhupdates.com/Amp/guru-gobind-singh-jis-response-to-a-singh-who-plucked-a-white-hair/
  11. VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH Partner = unsure if that means spouse or the person with who adultery is committed. In cases of adultery, the amritdhari guilty person is responsible for going and the Punj Pyare. Adultery can be committed by single or married people. In case of an unmarried amritdhari person, the unmarried person should go definitely, without regard to the other party. If the other person who had committed adultery is also, God Forbid, amritdhari, they should also go to an amrit sanchar - not necessarily to the same amrit sanchar, but he/she is also liable. A non-amritdhari party in adultery is not liable to go to the amrit sanchar as they have not committed to being part of the Khalsa Panth and its requirements. They may be subject to their own faith's consequences for adultery, if they profess a faith. If you are married, your spouse should be in the proximity of the amrit sanchar in case he/she is summoned as well (and it would be more likely than not). While there is confidentiality, breaking that sacred commitment of Anand Karaj has consequences. All is up to Punj Pyare, but they may very well summon the spouse, inform the spouse of the adultery and take any further action deemed necessary.
  12. Amrit sanchar

    VAHEGURU JI KA KHALSA, VAHEGURU JI KI FATEH Sigh, I might regret putting this up, but whatever. monatosingh, you can probably call Gurudwara Sahibs and check if they are having amrit sanchars and who will be doing the arrangements of the amrit sanchar. Most amrit sanchars are organized by a Sikh jatha, unless the Gurudwara Sahib is independent of any jathebandi and is itself, through a committee, organizing the amrit sanchar. The Sikh Rehat Maryada would probably be considered a non jathebandi affiliated Rehat. Rest of the marayadas are linked to jathebandian. There are a variety of Jathebandis in Sikhism, all of who have variations in maryada. But the purpose of the maryada is to give a Sikh the path on which to read Gurbani, do Naam Simran and follow a Gursikhi jeevan. It is not meant to be a platform of debate or argument. It is to create the environment physically, mentally, socially and spiritually to pursue Sikhi. Please don't get caught up in the "this is right Maryada, that is wrong Maryada" - become a Sikh, follow the maryada that is given to you and make a Gursikhi jeevan out of your life. Gurbani says to do Naam Simran (with every breath/continuously), Gurbani paath/vichaar (as much as possible) and internal introspection (daily or more frequently) - the Rehat is a framework to do this. Please have some faith that as you pursue Sikhi, you will be guided by Guru Sahib to the right path. If Sant Harnaam Singh Rampur Khera was a great Gursikh, he at one time did not do Paath of Jaap Sahib. Guru Sahib (who did not show their face to Sant Ji) and his Shaheed Singhs came and corrected his mistake and he started to do Jaap Sahib paath as his nitmen and got full darshan of Guru Sahib (details in their biography). Have a little faith - Guru Sahib will guide you. Let's rise a little bit above Jathebandis, taking up positions in support or against them as the one true maryada or one true represnetation of Sikhi (tell me any jatha that doesn't say they are the correct ones...) and work on seeing each other and ourselves as Sikhs of the Guru.
