  1. Thank you all... I order Royal Bluebut there's always a difference. Maybe a trip to Anandpur Sahib is due to get some
  2. Gurfateh ji, I am looking for the really deep blue that Nihung Singh's wear. I buy dastaars online (UK) but the colour fades quick and two dastaars are never the same shade when newly ordered. I came across an online store in Panjab with the colour 'tohra'. The pic is a deep blue but pics are pics. Has anyone heard of this shade of blue? I was gifted the blue I want/talking about (really deep blue almost purple tint) years ago and use it as a keski. The colour hasn't faded in 7 years of use and washing (f74 malmal). Anyone help? Thank you ji Akaal!
  3. Gurfateh... Does anyone know the true marayada of taking bhang? I have heard panj puthay is the parataan marayada. Also what are the valid methods of consumption (barring smoking it)? Akaal!
  4. Thank you for sharing the link. Interesting post. Not too sure about the Shaster being sanmukh to Guru Sahib as a valid reason though for the anti-clockers. Maharaaj ang sang in all directions but again this comes down to ones shardha pavnah. I also used to think that we go left to right - the same direction Gurbani (and English etc) is written. Thanks, Akaal
  5. Hanji, That is what my thinking has always been too. Just thought I'd ask to find out if anyone had a different reason as to why some go in the opposite direction so to speak. I thought that they may have some sort of marayada they follow. Thank you ji Akaal
  6. VJKK VJKF! Quick question Sangat Ji, I have being doing parkamaya from left to right (Maharaaj Ji's Saroop being on my right side) most of my life when doing Guru Sahibs darshan. I have noticed that some do it from right to left (opposite direction). Mainly noticed that it is usually Nihung Singhs/Singhniya. What is the correct marayada if any? I ask because someone I have known for years recently changed the direction they do it in and it got me thinking. Thank you ji Akaal
  7. Gurfateh Penji, I thought I would let you know (credit where it's due etc) that your tip with the Persil colour and vinegar has worked very well. Thakn you. It's much appreciated. Akaal!!
  8. Vaheguru! Thank you for the tips. I will put this into action on the next wash. Vaheguru!
  9. Vaheguru! Thank you for this. I use the liquid non-bio Persil. I will try the colour friendly biological one with vinegar as per your suggestion. A quick question though, when adding the white vinegar, do you add it into the actual machine (where the clothes go) or where the liquid goes? Much appreciated.
  10. No. I am talking just general day to day. Thank you. Vaheguru!
  11. Gurfateh Ji, Genuine question: How does one remove sweat stains from their dastaar material? I tie a dhumalla sahib (blue in colour) and the crossed larhs (over the ears) and the chand lahr (across the forehead) stain with sweat. (Please note, I don't have excessive sweat issues lol). I have tried hand washing and machine washing with different modes but they're still visible. Anyone experience the same issues? Any solutions? Thank you. Vaheguru!
  12. Thank you for the links and your search. I have no relatives in India unfortunately. I have been using Sikhistore for the past few years (great service) but there Royal Blue colour is not consistent. It also fades too much. Will check out the other links too. Also came across in India. Might just make a trip to Punjab soon and make a contact to ship over when needed. Thank you. Vaheguru
  13. Gurfateh Ji, Sangat ji, does anyone have a contact (shop or outlet) in India where I can order proper Khalsa Royal Blue F74 malmal dastaars? The really deep blue shade (almost purple looking) that doesnt fade? Nihung colour. Thank you. Vaheguru!!
  14. Thank you for yout input - much appreciated and apologies, I just used the term UK as this is where I am based. You have provided a good bit of infomration of each of the ares I asked. Thank you. Yes, Hazoor Sahib was also in my mind hence the travelling. Just want to know (if you can help) how to contact Gurdvara Sahibs about accomodation before arrival and which ones have rooms etc? Thank you.
  15. Gurfateh Sangat Ji, I was wondering if anyone has travelled, lived or spent some time in Anandpur Sahib from the UK? I have been wanting to go and experience Sikhi life out there but do not know how to go about it. Any advise? Where do people stay? (Hotels, Gurdvara) How about work - if any? Travelling? How to do sangat or get in touch with Singh's/Nihung Singh's there? Any help or tips would be great. Also just to mention, I have no relatives or friends out there. I went to Punjab around 15 years ago for a couple of months. Thank you. Gurfateh Ji.
