  1. Vaheguru ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru ji Ki Fateh ji Your concern for your child is beautiful, but the only thing I can really reccomend is that you should not worry if your child is in their grandmother's care. She seems like she is fond of your child, and who can be better at raising a child than their grandmother (who loves them). I do not know the full back story, but when it comes to elders you should let them have their 'fun' if that means they are a bit controlling.. Unless they are committing a crime, or trying to make drifts between family members, you should not worry. Just try to understand their perspective, and may you continue living in chardikala : )! Don't let your child have any negative feelings (arguing among the child etc) around them no matter what (make them feel grateful), that is simply how the child will grow up to be peaceful since they will not know how to argue or even be agitated.
  2. Just stop.. It's not mythology. If it was, then by that logic it would mean that Sri Ravidas ji's kahani (where Sri Ganga Devi ji appeared recently) is also mythology. Pretty sure if you tell anyone who is not a Sikh or Hindu about our Sri Guru Sahib ji's leela that they would call it mythology too. Mythology is simply subjective.
  3. Ohh, now I understand what you were talking about.
  4. Is that really any significance though (if so, why?)? I saw images of Sri Saraswati in japanese art, and they draw her(Benzai-ten) with japanese facial features compared to the traditional Indian features.. I just think that when it comes to facial features, unless we actually recieved darshan, then we are not to correct anyone (unless there is an actual dhyan description).
  5. That's just a murti..! There are murtis of gods in all black stones, but we know that is not their real skin tone.
  6. Of course, prem is what brought the OP to this point though. If he did not have prem then he would not even think of paath as an option. He is struggling because of distractions though, and may he get past them.
  7. "scholars and gursikhs', what a vague term, you are not even naming who has told you that false info. My credentials is the Sri Guru Sahib ji, thank you very much! They struggle with one sitting, instead of asking him to do an ardas from the bottom of his heart you tell him to give up the pledge altogether. Makes no sense for a Sikh to discourage someone from gurbani sahib ji because they seemingly cannot take the pledge, even though the op WANTS to take up the pledge. Anyone can easily take part in this pledge if it meant that theyd receive a catastrophe in their life if they didnt, but since the mind is lazy they think up of odd excuses. As I would recommend to anyone new to gurbani sahib, they can listen to it while read along for sometime and then proceed to reciting it out loud if they really cared. It all comes down to if they want to take part in this, and if they dont want to then that is fine too, but it is incoherent to tell someone to not take these 'pledges' (and blame the pledge) when our own sri guru sahib ji has made us pledge nitnem sahib.
  8. That is no Gursikh who told you that. Im sure there are people who have been blessed with Sri Amrit and are new to doing nitnem sahib ji, so it would be pakhandi to say to not do them if they seem like a chore to a person (because they are not a chore) who is new to it.
  9. That's crazy talk. We all pledged to do nitnem sahib, & that certainly is NOT chore for us. To the poster above: Please do take part in this life changing chalis sri sukhmani sahib ji paaht, no matter whoever discourages you from gurbani.
  10. I guess marrying just in general comes to preference regarding the person who is seeking. If someone wants to from asia then that is their wish. After all, this is merely sanyog.
  11. ਮਃ ੩ ॥ मः ३ ॥ Third Mehl: ਮਲਾਰੁ ਸੀਤਲ ਰਾਗੁ ਹੈ ਹਰਿ ਧਿਆਇਐ ਸਾਂਤਿ ਹੋਇ ॥ मलारु सीतल रागु है हरि धिआइऐ सांति होइ ॥ Malaar is a calming and soothing raga; meditating on the Lord brings peace and tranquility. ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਅਪਣੀ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰੇ ਤਾਂ ਵਰਤੈ ਸਭ ਲੋਇ ॥ हरि जीउ अपणी क्रिपा करे तां वरतै सभ लोइ ॥ When the Dear Lord grants His Grace, then the rain falls on all the people of the world. ਵੁਠੈ ਜੀਆ ਜੁਗਤਿ ਹੋਇ ਧਰਣੀ ਨੋ ਸੀਗਾਰੁ ਹੋਇ ॥ वुठै जीआ जुगति होइ धरणी नो सीगारु होइ ॥ From this rain, all creatures find the ways and means to live, and the earth is embellished. ਨਾਨਕ ਇਹੁ ਜਗਤੁ ਸਭੁ ਜਲੁ ਹੈ ਜਲ ਹੀ ਤੇ ਸਭ ਕੋਇ ॥ नानक इहु जगतु सभु जलु है जल ही ते सभ कोइ ॥ O Nanak, this world is all water; everything came from water. ਗੁਰ ਪਰਸਾਦੀ ਕੋ ਵਿਰਲਾ ਬੂਝੈ ਸੋ ਜਨੁ ਮੁਕਤੁ ਸਦਾ ਹੋਇ ॥੨॥ गुर परसादी को विरला बूझै सो जनु मुकतु सदा होइ ॥२॥ By Guru's Grace, a rare few realize the Lord; such humble beings are liberated forever. ||2|| This kirtan is done in Raag Malhar. Raag Malhar is famous for having the cooling/rain effect on the practitioner of this Raag.
  12. Problems arise from perception, unless any of this is harming you or someone you know (who is seeking your help), then don't be bothered by these small issues. Follow Sikh dharma, and tell whatever you said here to someone who is following those things.
  13. No need to generalize everyone like that, there are plenty of teachers etc from India who have also migrated here.
  14. That still seems silly to me. My panj pyare's told us that there is no point to stay alive at another's expense when we were being blessed with Sri Amrit. Id rather die than to eat that.
  15. There is no point to argue with them, they only speak with how much knowledge they have. I don't even see why people here are thinking she is the problem, Im actually on her side. Actually, nevermind, the people who are against her are probably the same people who think jhatka aka eating an animal's butt is okay & gives sikhs shobha.
  16. That is hate, you wouldn't act that way around someone or something that you admire. There is no point to focus on something that you dislike because if you really loved something you would spend your time with that (like your cartoons, jk lol)
  17. This has been discussed before from me! No point in saying the same thing repeatedly considering that Id say what I said before Wasting your lovely time in hate.
  18. Mhmm, only time will tell~ I personally think that temple area should be solely for hindus since we don't need a part of the problem lol
  19. Ikr, that is something that surprises me, it's proof that hindus aren't at power. Meanwhile Sri Sita ji has a massive temple at her birth place, while Sri Ram ji's isn't even made.
  20. Let them live, their lives do not have any relationship with our own spiritual journey. If they have positive karma, sri guru sahib ji will have a place in their life. Almost all of us started somewhere to reach the current avastha we are at. If people use force then that will only be badnami of our religion, since in our religion we are free to stay or leave.
  21. If you are amritdhari, then there are no excuses for missing paath. If you forgot how to recite them, then listen to them all so you can remember them for tomorrow. What I do is I play the paath, and I always recite it with the person who is reciting it.
  22. I don't know what the problem is, if 'Sikhs' are okay with migrating to other countries, then who cares about who moves into their spot. & This same thing is what happened in Delhi, Delhi was a Punjabi area but now it is full of people from everywhere of India.. Nobody had a problem with that. & nobody had a problem with hiring bhaiyas as naukars. We are Indian after all.
  23. Sri Ram ji's deed was done FOR the public, she was sent to Valmiki ji's because he is trustworthy. I know you may not believe it, but that is not my issue because what Im saying is what a lot of people believe. & just stop, Putri is a common title for daughters, Putra has to be super chaste too, not just any paapi can achieve the deed of what a true putra does. This may sound biased, but my family as well as many others referr to me as puttar/putri as well. It's a title for gods too, such as Suryaputri Yami (sun god's daughter goddess yami) etc. Even poor people use the putri title in east asia. There is no difference between putri and putra besides genders. Someone may ask why there is no female guru in sikhism, you will give your educated answer to them, but then they still feel it is not enough and they will bash the religion. Would that feel right to you? No. people need to think from everyone's perspective.
