  1. im sort of just gonna go on a rant about wat im currently feeling about sikhi. im currently just thinking about leaving sikhi behind annd just becoming a manmukh. i mean wats the point of being a sikh of the guru, if i cant wake up at amritvela,? if i cant even do simran,? if i dont have any shub gunn (sat, santokh, daya etc)? and i watch tv,? and constanly being bombarded by kaam ego krodh lobh and moh? what makes me different than a gora or punjabi person thats not amritdhari? I have lost pyra for sikhi and for guru sahib.....and i have tried to get it back and to no avail my attempts have just a loser, a fake, a pakhandi, a disgrace to sikhi and to guru wouldnt i be doing everyone a favour by just leaving this religion? As my wordly knowloedge specifically knowledge i am reciving at school about how the human brain works and how humans behave, it just seems to me that there is no such thing as god and that it more of personal thing about how people act such as thier physiological state can determine thier behavior and if you activate certain brain regions you can make people beleive that they have seen god etc. etc. Dont get me wrong.....I actually once had a jeevan back in the day in my teenage years....i used to wake up at amritvela everyday at 2:50 am and would do ishnaan and start doing simran by around 3 am and would do it for a minimum one hour and then i would do my punj bani's and then i would go back to sleep around 5am to 530am ish. I woke up on a consistent basis, in about 3 years i probably missed amritvela only twice, other than that i woke up everyday. With guru sahibs kirpa, i would even have the chance of doing 5 or somtimes 10 extra jap ji sahibs the paat a day and i did that for atleast 2-3 months on a consistent basis. ALso with guru sahib kirpa, i was able to start sitting in sangat in one sitting without moving my legs or opening my eyes for at least five to six hrs straight and i would just sit there just listening to keertan and i wouldnt even realise that i had been sitting for that long and i did that on a consistent basis (it wasn't a once in a time thing). Also i was also able to increase my simran to 2.5hrs to 3hrs a day for a couple months. and i rarely watched any sort of tv in my teenage yrs.... i guess i had pretty good jeevan back then? Back then i had alot sharda and love for guru sahib and for sikhi..... and for his gursikhs eventually i had a chance to stay with this gursikh (who i will not name, since alot of ppl respect him(but i dont anymore))who came to the UK, and i considered him to be a true gursikh/bram giani. I did sangat of him for long time almost half a year or so, and i saw many thing that were against maryada that he did, like taking off keeski like a topi, not washing hands properly when holding pothi, not waking up at amritvela( side not i thought they didnt wake up at amritvela because i thought they were in "samadhi"), not seeing them do thier nitnem or doing simran (they even told me to stop doing my nitnem) etc etc the list goes on..... but i was too naive, i didnt want to beleive what i was seeing, i just chose to ignore what i saw and thought to myself that they were testing my sharda etc However, while staying with them i thought i was doing good for myself by diong sangat of a gursilh that did seva for god, so i thought i would bennifit from that. When i eventually left their sangat, the immedidate effects of thier sangat was that i was no longer able to wake up at amritvela and the simran i used to do stopped to, i was just overcome with pure laziness. I thought it was just temporary but i was wrong, so far its been almost 4 years since i havent woken up at amritvela on a consistent basis and done simran on a consistent basis.And another effect was that i was no longer able to go to sangat like i used to on a regular basis, and i also stopped doing proper adrass (i just do the short one) Amritvela was my life, by waking up at amritvela i would feel happy about myself. but by not waking up at amritvela i started to become depressed and started to feel bad about myself and eveantually i didnt want to show my face to the other singhs because i just felt like such a pakhandi and ashamed of myself. and with the depression that i eventually got it caused me even further to stay away from sangat. Eventaully by not waking up at amrtivela, i started to become atttacked by maya alot, espically kaam, and that caused me to eniterely lose my spirtual jeevan. And i also started to watch lots of TV and spend alot of time on the internet. And basically now i live a manmukh jeevan, i watch tv (lots of it), look at girls all the time , have kaami thoughts all time , engrossed in maya 24/7..... i guess the only thing that seperates me from a manukh is that i still do my 5 banis and rehrasss and keertan sohilla everyday. Basically, i see no point in trying to becoming a sikh anymore, i tried so hard in my teenage yrs because i wanted to become a true singh, i didnt have any freinds in school and i didnt even have a gf and i didnt even talk or flirt with girls (except for a while but i eventaully stoppped), i tried my best not use the internet that much, i tried my best to watch little to no tv, i tried my best to stay away from bad sangat and to only do sangat of certain good singhs. After staying with that "gursikh" and seeing other singhs that i looked up to alot and finding out they are not what i thought they were, it was really heartbreaking for me to see, it really just broke my sharda and love towarsd sikhi from seeing these tyope of pakhandi singhs that i looked up to as role models not ebing what i thought they really were. In ending, i just wanted to get this off my chest (since i have no freinds, and i have been holding on to this for so long, i thought that this would be way to get off) and i want to truely say that i have no love for sikhi....i want to have love but i just dont know how anymore.........i have tried to do simran and read bani but i just cant do it...i just cant...maybe its not written in my karama to practice living sikh way of life......i guess its just better for me to give up and not have any spirtualy expectation about myself.........................

  7. There's a new twitter page and website that started up a few days ago called @patkaspotting it's made to shame people who were patka's. The person who started this page said their intention is to promote people to wear dastaars instead of patka's. In my opinion I think this is very wrong and it can even be considered as cyber bullying because the people on this page don't give permission for their pictures to be used (a lot of them don't even know their picture is used). Does anyone else think this isn't right? The website is

  12. SSA All, After joing SikhSangat... i have seen or we can say noticed... that... People talk about Sikhism..... n being Khalsa... But There is nothing called UNITY in them.... Previously sikhs were classified as - Amritdhari/Non Amritdhari/Clean Shave/converted etc. Now they are classifying themselves as: UK- SIkhs American - Sikhs Indian - Sikhs Australian - Sikh .. . . . .Bla bla bla Sikhs..... Where is Unity...?? These differences are crested by sikhs themselves..... n coz of their attitude... !! Eh ki hai... If by chance there will be any kind of attack on our religion again.... like 1984 - first thing which will happen. people will blame each other... this was coz of uk sikhs... these indian sikhs are like this that... etc....... No body is stoping people to cut their kesh... no body is stoping ot taking any measures to make sikh united... all they are fighting on the things which not even valuable....... How many born sikh really are sikhs? Thanks
  13. Dear Sikhsangat, please could this message be forwarded to anyone who may be interested in the following: With the quest for independence of Khlaistan, I have noticed that we need to be able to express this with instant recognition. Many other countries that seek independence have this and are instantly identified with their message for all people to see. With Khalistan we currently do not have this (yet), with it, it will make a great impact!!! As other nations who have seeked independce have shown. Being Catalans and Basques in Spain, Tamils in Sri Lanka, Palestinians in Israel, Chechens in Russia, Scots in UK, Kurds in Turkey/Syria/Iraq, Ibo in Nigeria, Serbs in Bosnia, Albanians in Macedonia, Tibetans and Uighurs in China, and Cabinda in Angola. They all have something in common a flag to represent their country which they want too free and be independent. With Sikhi there is the Nishan flag (orange back ground with black Khanda), this is the flag of Sikhi not Khalistan. This flag shows and represents the Sikh religion, other religions have this and are clear with this for example Christians have the flag with the cross, the Buddhist flag called the prayer flag, and Jains have the five coloured flag these all represent their WHOLE religion. The Khalistan Flag represents freedom and independence, we currently are not waving and flying this flag high enough so that we can symbolise our country for all people to see. We need something that will be recognised, familiar, and symbolises our fight for freedom. I truly believe we need to start to show this so it will put a better image, message and overall a bigger impact when people see the Khalistan flag. There is a Khalistan flag that a small number of people recognise it when used. The origin of this flag are not very clear on my search to find it out. But we have something already we serious need to use it a lot more at all Sikh events concerning Khalistan, at the moment we only using banners with Khalistan written on them. Where are our supporters of freedom? They need to be clearly seen! let us get the blue and yellow of the Khalistan flag high and visible for all to see! buy your Khalistan flags and spread the support!!!

  15. A Sikh businessman was kidnapped from Qaidabad, Peshawar, by unidentified armed men, Express Tribune reported on Wednesday. Rakbir Singh, a trader and shopkeeper in Peshawar’s Karkhano Market, was nabbed outside his house by armed men who overpowered him and shoved him into their car. Members of the Sikh community believe Rakbir has been kidnapped for ransom. “He goes to the temple to offer his prayers and then to his shop according to his daily routine,” said Sahib Singh, a former Sikh council member. “He was kidnapped while returning home.” Dozens of Sikhs staged a protest rally in front of the Chief Minister House on Wednesday to protest the kidnapping. The Banamarhi police have registered an FIR and started an investigation.

  17. SSA g.... i wrote this long back just searching for some pic in my lappy got this ... so thought to post here
  18. Now here is a big problem among youth.
  19. Basically i came across this guy a few months back and from the very first time i met him, i was hooked. He is like no other person i have ever come across. Its not about looks etc but his personality...i feel connected with him on another level. It sounds corny but it feels like we were meant to meet...obviously we were lol Maharaajs hukum but i meet loads of people many amazing people but just this one guy has touched me so deep...i feel like theres a solid soul connection. And whats weird is that he feels the exact same way. I know his not lying...he is possibly the most truthful person ive come across. I know him inside out now. So yeah we have this amazing thing where we both feel the same way about each other and both feel like there is a much deeper meaning to it. Its something neither of us have ever felt. So my question is...what is this? All this has me really confused. I dont know what to make of it anymore. I've tried ignoring him and walking away, tried putting him off etc but none of it works...i can not stop talking to him. I've given up fighting it... And to be honest, i am no longer sure i want to stop talking to him. Coz what we have is so unique. Neither of us have experienced it. I am taking all this as Maharaajs hukum...i honestly dont know where i would be without this guy now. Though i dont agree wth most labels, i can say with all surety that i am not homosexual. Nor bisexual. Im a kesadhari Singh...very much into Sikhi, an integral part of me. I have always wanted to get married to a woman with whom id have 3/4 children lol! but right now i can not see past this guy. I want to spend my life with this person whos so attached to my soul. I could happily live a life of celebacy just to be with this guy...thats how i feel right now. I'd appreciate people not jumping to conclusions and assuming this is some kaam related thing or that i am trying to justify homosexuality. Im not against it either. Its fine in its own place...not my business or the point of this post. It sounds weird even as i read it back to myself but this is the reality of it. I guess im looking for someone to tell of a similar not sure. I just dont need bakwaas cheap digs. Please do yourself a favour and keep them to yourself. If anyone has anything worth saying, please reply. I apologise if i offend anyone, it is not my intention.
  20. Ok, to start (mods will filter this) <banned word filter activated> government. <banned word filter activated> it, its wife, and children. Ok, now to continue 10 maxims of law: Any good lawyer who has not sworn an oath to be British Accreditation Registry's phudi will tell you this is true: (also makes sense, also tested in court by me, with victories )'> Or google 10 maxims of law cuz that guy is on prozac (which is reason for mass murders) and is talking about love, peace, let me get naked for that police to encounter me, etc. Pick up the good, shoot out the bad. I Vreak Downn Eech Vun Phor Ju. 1. A workman is worthy of his hire: Posession is 9/10ths of the law (won't get into last tenth which is just the legal right or wrong). I have ipod in my pocket, or let's say 2 bills cash. By law, (not any statute cuz law always win) unless there is a valid claim that the money is stolen, a valid claim filed by someone (real person only law, gov. is fiction) that money is yours. Nobody can come up to you and say I think you stole it, blah blah blah, prove you didn't. Doesn't matter in civil law places either where it guilty until innocent cuz the gov. can't rebut your affidavit (more on that below). 2. All are equal under the Law 10:17; Col. 3:25. Legal maxims: "No one is above the law."; "Commerce, by the law of nations, ought to be common, and not to be converted into a monopoly and the private gain of a few."). Force has meaning as for example you file lien on POTUS (obama) it probably won't be enforced, but you can destroy his credit with it and hit him the f up. Everything else, Prime minister, to police officer you can crank them with this. Obv. some places incl. states this is harder as some counties dont take liens vs gov. agents but I give you gun you find bullets. You have knowledge and info I have the lassi I am drinking. 3. In Commerce truth is sovereign 13:8. Legal maxim: "To lie is to go against the mind." Few things, pretty much it's related to the things below but it also goes well it's related to the things below. Law is supposed to pplz telling truth for honesty or bcuz of consequences but remember they have to prove you lie. (More on this later). 4. Truth is expressed by means of an affidavit (Lev. 5:4-5; Lev. 6:3-5; Lev 19:11-13; Num. 30:2; Matt. 5:33; James 5:12). Yes, an affidavit is supposed to be even 3 signatures or statement written with penalty of perjury but I encourage the panth to only go for bigger matters so spend the $5-10 per seal (find a good one) for a notary cuz it looks GOOD! (Some will say page, but it's per document a doc. can have multiple pages, blah blah blah, other party can't say <banned word filter activated> anyway [gov. as in thing that can't speak by itself]) 5. An unrebutted affidavit stands as the truth in Commerce (1 Pet. 1:25; Heb. 6:13-15. Legal maxim: "He who does not deny, admits."). Main and HUGE thing, I submitted an affidavit where I said I am not subject to these gov. rules, they all gov. agents speak hog-wash, etc. etc. gov. did not rebut it in court. It is truth (post later on). 6. An unrebutted affidavit becomes the judgment in Commerce (Heb. 6:16-17. Any proceeding in a court, tribunal, or arbitration forum consists of a contest, or "duel," of commercial affidavits wherein the points remaining unrebutted in the end stand as the truth and the matters to which the judgment of the law is applied.). Basically, a judge can only judge what you let him, if both parties are talking judge has no power to come in between. If you two settle outside of court for example, judge has to be silent. Whether he'll try something depends on if this is India or not but I swear all you kukkars are in UK. 7. A matter must be expressed to be resolved (Heb. 4:16; Phil. 4:6; Eph. 6:19-21. Legal maxim: "He who fails to assert his rights has none."). Yea, it's cool to scream (submit) cuz otherwise it's assumed that nun happen. As in this system is basically the word I'm looking for ignorantly corrupt. A judge can pretend to say I thought you were a gov. agent subject to Canadian law for example, cuz u didn't rebut it. It goes on and on but basically use this the other way too. There are things like without prejudice or something on docs mean it's in negotiation and can't be brought up in court. (Ain't fully research this part) so you can use this to your advantage (or your mother will beat you). 8. He who leaves the field of battle first loses by default (Book of Job; Matt. 10:22. Legal maxim: "He who does not repel a wrong when he can, occasions it."). Really just a repeat of points 5 and 6. 9. Sacrifice is the measure of credibility (One who is not damaged, put at risk, or willing to swear an oath that he consents to claim against his commercial liability in the event that any of his statements or actions is groundless or unlawful, has no basis to assert claims or charges and forfeits all credibility and right to claim authority.) (Acts 7, life/death of Stephen, maxim: "He who bears the burden ought also to derive the benefit."). This is long one, ADD kids please don't lose it here; basically it means that one who has no interest in the case has no reason to be there. You can fabricate interest for example you see cop abusing someone even verbally (I'll look up stuff for you) you can easily say you have interest blah blah, and ask the person a dollar for your help in which case you have interest now due to employment. Remember it is interest, no authority in the land has jurisdiction to challenge what that interest means. If you are there for someone you are there for someone. Remember this is battlefield, make your own weaponary. 10. A lien or claim can be satisfied only through rebuttal by Counter-affidavit point-for-point, resolution by jury, or payment (Gen. 2-3; Matt. 4; Revelation. Legal maxim: "If the plaintiff does not prove his case, the defendant is absolved."). Yea, judge can't touch lien this is not so I won't post full commerical lien process here but google that exact thing you'll find stuff from everywhere I'll go into it later but probably only after I feel comfortable and done it once or twice which is most likely months away. My Story--- Youth robbery charges cuz they try to rob me, got sucked. Ok, house arrest learned this june last year, brought to feds, this that got them stuck in lien bill, met them somewhere too close to probation location. Admitted in court, yea I went there but can you prove it's me that probation addresses (all caps is fiction, also other party to contract ie. gov. has no respond see was it points 5 and 6)? Kinda nervous case dismissed due to my motion, they admitted they couldn't have convicted me, blah blah. Here this crazy kid is. Relevant Canadian Sections since I looked them up but really it doesn't matter. You don't need any of this I'll give example: I am 'charged' by state of New Mexico. For Idk Drunk Driving, Speeding, No License, w.e Ok but no-one is injured and they are not the injured party (see point 9). --- I would go in give letter to attorney say it's for the 'STATE' put in w.e song I was listening to blah blah, ask them is it not true that w.e make <banned word filter activated> up and for so-so reason I am not subject to your bs. (Put like cuz ur not real, this that, common law, ABRA KADABRA). If you say nothing then it means you agree to this: Legal Maxim: Silence Is Acquiescence. Swear affidavit with all those points, file motion to dismiss serve them with it. Ok. Done. This doesn't get into how to not even be charged for statues again, as some people have on their names in CPIC (Canadian Stalkers People Database) do not arrest without express written consent of attorney general. But I ain't there yet, don't care to be and this is the basics that everyone can grasp and which don't vary and which are UN-BREAKABLE. (read again). Even peace officers in commonwealth swear to uphold law of land, keep peace, and stop it from being breached. Nothing about penal/criminal code (look it up, ask w.e). Law of land well the only law the land can have is that. Cuz it's all semantics this ish works, and I guess they get into cuz god's creatures live in harmony (humans) and this is how we live in peace. It's pretty much called law of land cuz law of sea is the statutes etc. in a way cuz ur signing up to board and there must be discipline tc. I guess (ain't research it but trust me). --- CANADIAN SECTIONS (let me stop rambling about the New Mexico thing, it's an ugly desert. ) s. 32 says something like parliament authority provinces. etc of charter (constitution act 1982 or something). Look up R V Dell 2005 line 6-8 admits that charter does not apply to private parties (us). S. 52 of const. act says this is supreme law of canada anything else no force or effect. R V Big Drug Mart 1982 or 1986 w.e w.e restates that any statutes against that don't matter. Ok Class, if charter don't apply to you and it is top? Vut else does. NOTHING. --- Ok, let me post this to other Sikh Sites and other sites now. Thank You. Remember tho in the largest 'common law' country of all an affidavit won't save you level iv ceramic plates might. Remeber our 2.5 strikes doctrine? one point for hit and run/guerilla/ambushes and only .5 for pitched battle. Teaching people is much more warlike and better so 1 point than going to jail even for less than 24 hrs getting bail and then getting out and beating it cuz u lost time, patience etc. It is NO FUN waiting to sign someones bail, or sitting in a <banned word filter activated> small <banned word filter activated> cell getting orange juice and tuna sandwich. But there is time for it, and don't let it scare you. Adult jail is soft, been there once for less than 24 like I said just talked about this stuff but wasn't in jail jail, we'll see. 99.99% + 1 of men are kaami khote attempting to trap women in marriages to don't worry about them. Girls respond to dominance, so mamis just act big and you'll be fine. Peace and Blessings. And please see my thread about christmas light on Nishan Sahib. F Rexdale. O <banned word filter activated>, keeps posting but giving me server error. Sorry about that.

  22. India is a sexually repressed place, that will change with time; in the mean-while this famous saying: Gun Control is hitting where you aim or The morality behind gun control is john doe being tied to a fence post vs john doe explaining how his attackers got those holes in them. Not too long of a post, crime is reduced where there is concealed carry. US people would know that, anyone going against weapons is a wussy and frankly not a sikh. That's really the only solution while other things work themselves out, or we work them out. Otherwise, you're saying that because you don't 'like' or are 'scared' of weapons for your 'feeling of safety' 100,000's of people should be rape, killed, and etc.

  24. I am 15 years old, and I and maybe one or two people are the only Sikhs* that are vegetarian in my high school. I don't know if this is written somewhere in Guru Granth Sahib ji, but I as a human being think, whether Sikh or not, eating other animals is wrong. When you have free fruits and vegetables, why would you want to take the life of someone for food? All my Sikh friends try to avoid the topic...they say not eating meat was just a rumour and not true. But why do we not serve meat in Gurdwaras? Modern day Sikhs are changing, and a kid like me in high school is witnessing it. The things adults don't see. They talk about shaving, eat chicken with no shame. So what is the truth? *These are not true Sikhs. They cannot read punjabi, they only have turbans, nothing else. How do we change this corruptness? What is the true answer about meat? Bhul Chuk Maaf. Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji Ki Fateh!
