  1. Seeing things in the future

    VJKK VJKF How much mool mantra and simran were you doing? It must've been a direct result of that. Maharaj kirpa. Vaheguru Ji.
  2. Gurudwara Changes!

    VJKK VJKF Maharaj Kirpa de naal, daas is being blessed to meet some amazing people who can change a lot in our panth. I would like to pose the question to you guys - what would you like to see change in our gurudwaras? What should we add and what should we remove? This is the time to start moving forward now and Maharaj kirpa we can take these points and try to make them a reality. Vaheguru Ji.
  3. Rehat

    VJKK VJKF Challo - maybe someone in sangat can enlighten daas. Maharaj Kirpa. Vaheguru Ji.
  4. Rehat

    VJKK VJKF The SGPC rehat was created in 1925 if I remember correctly. This begs the question what was the official rehat that people used to follow around the time of Guru Gobind Singh Ji? If I search any rehat at the time there are so many different ones. Which one is the official one that was set at that time? Vaheguru Ji.
  5. Rehat

    VJKK VJKF This is what I read Ji. https://sarbattkhalsa.weebly.com/bhai-daya-singh-ji-rehatnama.html Vaheguru Ji.
  6. Rehat

    VJKK VJKF There were rehats like Bhai Daya Singh's rehatnama around Guru Ji's time. But is there anywhere where you can read the official rehat at the time? Vaheguru Ji.
  7. VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, I've heard that a mahapurakh did a bachan that Sant Jarnail Singh Ji is coming/has come back? Is this true? Vaheguru Ji.
  8. Specific Path number and other stuff?!.

    VJKK VJKF Trust me Ji - heard so many different things from so many different people. Maharaj kirpa, I would say start doing 5 banis nitnem if you already do some sort of paath in the morning. If you don't then start to implement Japji Sahib into your life even if you just listen to it. Do you have any kind of nitnem right now? You don't need to specify what you do if you don't want to just if you have a routine or not. I'll try and help if I can after that. Hope that helps Ji. Vaheguru Ji.

  10. How to get Youth in to sikhi

    VJKK VJKF I wouldn't say it's entirely hard. Just like how gold appeals to all so does the truth. All we have to do is spread it to them. As I'm only 17 I can clearly see what's happening. We don't have young faces preaching sikhi. We have more than before but the amount are few and far between. The average parcharik (the closest thing we have to parchariks in the panth apart from a few a Basics parchariks are granthis in the gurdwara) doesn't leave the four doors of the gurdwara and inside they only hand out parshaad and may or may not read from Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj. How are the youth going to learn anything about sikhi when the gurdwara is only full of aunties and babeh doing chugliyah in the gurudwara and no-one is doing katha? If there is katha (rare nowadays) then it's Punjabi and only a few kids nowadays understand Punjabi so there's no English katha. My year group (Year 13) are really coming towards the path when with Maharaj kirpa daas starting doing a bit of parchar at school with the sikhs and now the sikh sangat (pardon the pun) is so much stronger because there's not an old baba speaking about sikhi; it's someone their age who they can relate to. We need to spread this sikhi to the youth because they are next generation and they can teach their kids and so on. Nowadays, we target old men to run our gurudwaras (which there is nothing wrong with) but they run it and don't employ people to start preaching it within and outside the gurudwara. Why are we hiding this beautiful sikhi we have? Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj was jagat guru so they were here to save the whole world not just the sikhs. Target the youth, not the average baba on the road. We have tackled getting the old generation into Sikhi but what about the rest of the panth. Getting the youth into Sikhi is killing two birds with one stone because then when they become old they already know sikhi and can teach it to the youth again so it's a constant cycle but teaching the old generation doesn't help anyone because they don't become young again. We also don't teach our kids sikhi is anymore (this is aimed at parents). We think it's good enough to take our kids gurdwara now and again and remember God when we have exams or need something but nothing at all about what sikhi is even about. Names of 10 gurus, naam, sangat, Amrit, morals of Sikhi, kes... nothing. The list goes on. Where is this sikhi going? We can't even keep it running in our homes how are we supposed spread it outwards? We all love to point fingers at Muslims but there is one thing they do very very well and I really hope one day we can do this as well. They get their kids into Islam straight away. What they teach their kids and their faith in general is not a topic for me to comment on but the fact they know so much by their teens/late teens shows how easy it is to get kids in religion. Now I can't speak for Islam's teachings but we have such beautiful, beautiful but vastly effective and simple teachings which if we actually bothered to tell our kids and get them trained then they would automatically have a base of Sikhi which they could build on and spread all whilst still in their youth. The first rehat for us sikhs is to take Amrit at birth. Why is this not happening? Hindus get their kids wearing the janaeu from the day their born making their religion the forefront of the child's life from day dot but we can't even chose our kids names and keep their kes the sikh way. We are stopping sikhi in all our homes before it even gets to the streets. First in our guru's house (gurudwara) and then in our own homes. Maharaj kirpa daas will try and make these changes with the right sangat when I come out of school because I can't see this keep happening generation after generation... this stops now. Hope this helps Ji - bhul chuk maaf karna. Vaheguru Ji.
  11. Sant Thakur Singh Ji

    VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji daas has been blessed to hear many kathas on the spiritual side of Sikhi (bani, naam, Shakti of abhiyaas, avasthas of sants etc) and I've heard that among all the mahapurakhs Sant Thakur Singh Ji had the highest avastha? Is this true? Feel free to drop anything about any mahapurakhs or anything in general about Sant Ji. Vaheguru Ji.
  12. VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, as Sikhs we are not kill animals and hurt others but why do we wear shoes of leather and have tablas made of goat skin being used in Gurudwaras today? Is this okay or paakhandi? Vaheguru Ji.
  13. help from Gurbaani

    VJKK VJKF Penji, by double standards I believe you mean pakhandi/fake/hypocrites etc. Here are a few panktis. Some people don't like it when full panktis are not given and given in one's own words so Daas will show them in full. Maharaj Kirpa - I hope this helps. Vaheguru Ji.
  14. Simran experiences

    VJKK VJKF Saw that video recently - it is really really good. Vaheguru Ji.
  15. Dhan Guru Nanak Simran

    VJKK VJKF Nicely put Ji. Gurmantar was given to Guru Nanak Dev Ji Maharaj. Dhan Guru Nanak is not gurmantar as it was not given to them but it is a high praise of them so there is nothing wrong with saying this but just don't get them mixed up Ji. Vaheguru Ji.
  16. VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, I'm hearing that apparently the gurus had past lives. I find this hard to believe because I thought they were Akaal Purakh themselves so can someone please enlighten me? Vaheguru Ji
  17. Sant Thakur Singh Ji

    VJKK VJKF Yes Ji, I've heard about them. Really are so blessed to even know about their existence. I've heard about how powerful and mahan they were. Vaheguru Ji.
  18. Sant Thakur Singh Ji

    VJKK VJKF Maharaj Kirpa - thank you. Vaheguru Ji.
  19. Sant Thakur Singh Ji

    VJKK VJKF Phaji, controversial means when you say something that is there solely aimed to cause public disruption. I ask questions because I have a genuine urge to ask questions which I have no other sangat who can answer. Sorry if you think I'm doing this to cause controversy as you believe it is my "penchant" to do so. I'll do my best to stop asking "controversial questions". I think a better suited word would be deep as appose to "controversial". Additionally, I do actually engage in veechar now and again Ji - not as lot as I used to do as I was on holdiays but I started off doing veechar before asking questions. Hope that helps and that I haven't offended anyone. Vaheguru Ji.
  20. Did the Gurus have past lives?

    VJKK VJKF chatanga Ji, I never said I doubt my gurus. I said that I find it hard to believe because of what I've been taught before and that I've never been given any straight evidence. If Guru Ji said this themselves then the conversation stops here but I have not said anywhere I doubt my gurus in the slightest. Vaheguru Ji.
  21. LIVING ALONE

    VJKK VJKF Dont worry veerji, I'm starting to feel exactly the same way. Vaheguru Ji.
  22. Did the Gurus have past lives?

    VJKK VJKF Wait... God was fighting maya? How is that even possible? My head is hurting. Vaheguru Ji.
  23. Did the Gurus have past lives?

    VJKK VJKF I can accept they were around at different times and weren't in joon and everything but I don't understand this whole past life and being different people and not perfect and our sikh gurus in other lives. Vaheguru Ji.
  24. Did the Gurus have past lives?

    VJKK VJKF I don't know how I feel about this. I thought all the gurus had no past lives. It's just not right... how can a mere mortal do many lives of bhagti and become the guru? Not just any guru but the only true guru in this world and all the next worlds and are god themselves. This confuses me so much. I've always been taught that the gurus were god themselves on earth because they were one with god and god came themselves 10 times in the human form. But there are many mahapurakhs who are one with god so why don't we consider them the guru as well? I'm really confused and it's really shaking me... I just can't come to terms with this. Vaheguru Ji.
  25. Predictions

    VJKK VJKF Sangat Ji, just been watching a film about a guy who predicted the 2008 housing crisis and I was wondering - does bani or any bachans from mahapurakhs and or anything in Sikhi give us any predictions for the future? Vaheguru Ji.
