  1. Mom not letting me take amrit

    How old are you? If you're under 18, it'll be harder to argue and you might be better off waiting until you're older. If you're over 18, then there's nothing really she can do except throw you out. What you really need to do is find out why she doesn't think you're ready.
  2. marrying an amridtari

    I know of a couple where the husband doesn't eat meat, nor do his family. The girl married with everyone knowing she ate meat (mainly chicken). She wasn't allowed to bring in, cook or eat meat in the house. She was fine with it. When the couple went out to restaurants, she would eat meat. After a few years, she naturally stopped eating meat and does not miss it. Your situation may resolve in the same way. But if you cannot give up meat for your prospective husband, then you should rethink the situation. Speak to your prospective husband. Be completely open and honest. It's better to break off a relationship early. The shame is much less than if you ended up divorced a few years down the line because things didn't work out. The other posters are correct in that you may even derail your husband's spiritual future. Both of you should ideally be similar or compatible for a higher chance of successful marriage. This might be a marriage that works out in such a way that you naturally give up meat and become more spiritual and closer to Sikhi. Or it may become a life fraught with distress and unhappiness.
  3. Questions from an ignorant manmukh vol.2

    I've assisted in theatre as part of my medical training. I found orthopaedic hoods and masks best for covering turban and beard. Sikhi is a way of life. It should be part of your every decision, every action, every fibre of your being. Maintaining your 5Ks is down to you - it's as easy or as hard as you make it. If you know you aren't willing to make the effort to look after your rehat, then don't take amrit. Just like if you don't study and put the effort in for your training, there's no point in becoming a nurse.
  4. Amritvela problems

    The main challenge is getting out of bed. If you can do that, it's a lot easier. Sticking your phone on the other side of the room so you have to get out of bed to turn it off. Someone i knew used to drink a pint of water before bed. When they woke up, they would be bursting for the loo so they had to get out . Once you develop a routine, it becomes a lot easier. It's much harder to initiate change than to maintain it.
  5. Doing Paath But No Simran

  6. Doing Paath But No Simran

    We all live in a worldly environment. To detach ones' self from is a truth that few realise. People have been so caught up in the web of maya - have the biggest house, fastest car, most beautiful spouse, best job, fame, fortune etc - that they lose sight of the goal. Hence, stepping outside of this web seems weird because everyone else is caught up, we think we should remain in the web too. Although this thread is a couple of years old, I was reading a sakhi whereby the different forms of meditation are listed: 1. Listening to gurbani with full concentration is a form of meditation 2. Doing kirtan with love is a form of meditation 3. Doing simran is a form of meditation 4. Doing seva is a form of meditation There were others but I cannot recall.
  7. Is it me or did it come across as Sunny putting his brother down frequently throughout the article?
  8. Chandi di vaar

    Firstly I posted that thread to show the OP that if they had searched for the information, they would have found the link. Secondly, if Mahapuraks have experienced something, then why share it? I am certain true sants and mahapuraks experience many things, much of which they do not share. But of the few things they do share, they do so for a reason. I recently read some sakhis about Baba Isher Singh Rara Sahib. One of things he mentioned is that although merging with Akaal purakh is the ultimate goal in one's life, an even greater level is to help others join Akaak Purakh.
  9. Chandi di vaar

    A simple search uncovered this.
  10. Can We Do Naam Simran In Lucid Dreams?

    I used to have lucid dreams when I was much younger. On two occasions that I was "aware" that I was lucid dreaming, I did Japji Sahib paath and then returned to normal sleep. In every lucid dream I had, I was unable to control how long it lasted.
  11. Shameful beating of woman for dowry by a Sikh

    The stupidest thing is that only the sperm determined the gender of the child. The woman has no influence over this. This kind of behaviour is despicable. The perpetrators should be suitably punished.
  12. You don't have the punjabi heritage or language. These will make it a little harder but not impossible. When I was at university, I met a caucasian Sikh who was previously Christian. He never really bothered with religion but I think he too felt spiritual. He openly wore a dastaar (turban) and kept his beard whilst learning about Sikhi. He knew more about Sikhi than I did, despite my being born into a Sikh family and knowing what I had learnt over the years.
  13. Others touching your turbans at airport

    This what I do at airports. They ask my to rub my hands over my turban and then they swab my hands.
  14. Prasad that fell on the floor?

    Prashaad is blessed and should not be wasted. If, whilst serving, it drops on the floor, it should be picked up and eaten. It should not be wasted. You know for next time to maybe double wrap the prashad, or give it to the sangat and let them put it in the bag themselves.
  15. Are Inside of uk Gurdwaras to colorful?

    The Guru is your King. Your Emporer. How should the house of an Emporer be decorated?
