  1. As an Amritdhaari of 10 years I started doing something only 4 years ago... eating EGG based ingredients. WHY? you ask? because I AM A JEEB RASS (TONGUE TASTING) GUY! What? It's possible to avoid it? YES BUT LIKE I SAID! I indulge in good food tastes. "Why not cook your own food at home and make t eggless?" BECAUSE I admit to being a tongue taster AND part of tongue taster, there will always be something missing in eggless compared to egg based. Anyone will know on consumption. Ok, now that we've established am a jeeb rass insaan, let's take a look at the "Benefits," I can eat cakes, Jaffa cakes, MUFFINS (my fav), fancy angels, mayonnaise, croissants and anything egg based. Free range, whole, yolks saara kuch! NOW! for hypocritical yet unexplainable reasons I do not eat egg on it's own neither if it's in a hot meal, because it's not right I HATE BEING A HYPOCRITE Sorry folks I know I bring you bad news about myself but part of jeeb rass insaan, right? it's all about enjoying the delicacies available. I only purchase them from shops/ bars NOT home made.
  2. I just wanted to add this short note on genetically-modified organisms (GMOs). The issue of multi-colored variants of a single species leads naturally to the thought, often expressed, that GMOs are not bad because humans have been genetically modifying organisms since forever, and it is through genetic modification that we got different colored carrots. Well, I vehemently disagree! In the case of colored carrots, humans are simply mixing different combinations of already existing genetic information within the carrots through selective breeding. A monster chimera can't come into existence just because of certain safeguards placed by either God or (if you don't believe in God) nature. This is much different from a genetically modified organism: A genetically modified organism, or GMO, is an organism that has had its DNA altered or modified in some way through genetic engineering. In most cases, GMOs have been altered with DNA from another organism, be it a bacterium, plant, virus or animal; these organisms are sometimes referred to as "transgenic" organisms. Or, from an anti-GMO site: A GMO, or genetically modified organism, is a plant, animal, microorganism or other organism whose genetic makeup has been modified using recombinant DNA methods (also called gene splicing), gene modification or transgenic technology. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods. Visit the What is GMO page for more information and a list of high-risk crops. https://www.nongmoproject.org/gmo-facts/ Now, the reason I mention all of this, is because as Sikhs, we should naturally be concerned with what we're putting into our bodies, since it's a temple of God (Harimandir). Of course, there's nothing in Gurbani specifically addressing GMOs, but if you just take a basic proposition of Sikhism (that the world is running in accordance to Kaam, Krodh, Lobh, Moh, Hankar), then you can see that the entire impetus for GMOs is the Lobh (greed) of giant agribusinesses like Monsanto and Cargil. Most corn in the US and Canada is GMO. Then they also take it and make High-Fructose Corn Syrup out of it, which becomes the sweetener in your Coca-Cola. Something to avoid. In our homeland, most bangan (eggplant) is GMO--referred to as "BT Bangan" (BT for bio-technology). Please avoid to whatever extent possible, and definitely not suitable for Guru's Langar.
  3. Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh Sometimes my parents buy vegetables and stuff from shops which also sell halal meat, I don't eat anything from halal restaurants and I am confused whether or not it is right to buy ingredients from grocers that have halal butchers inside. But then again I buy stuff from supermarkets and stuff which also sells halal products. I know it's a stupid question, but i don't know what to do.
  4. Hi, I have an extensive intolerance to numerous plant foods and as a result of trying to be vegetarian, my health has deteriorated. I've been admitted to hospital numerous times, and I keep being advised my health will continue to decline - unless I start consuming meat again. I want to ask if according to Sikhi this is ok? I love Sikhi, but if my health continues to do down, I won't be well enough to continue to practice the rest.
  5. WJKK WJKF So I wanted to start a new topic about healthy yet simple recipies. But I wanted to take a poll if people would agree and like to have this topic? Thanks

  7. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I watched a Katha on Rehat Maryda And he said that we should eat anything that been touch with person using tabaco, and we should have a full bath after coming into contact with tabaco. The problem is: 1) I go uni and being veg as well my food choices are limited, is it still ok if i eat outside. I can't really eat cold food because it gets stuck in my throat easily. 2) My dad drinks alcohol, he touches the roti thing after he drinks and he also washes my clothes (I study so I don't really have that much time), sometimes he has a glass out while he handles the clean clothes, also all the dishes are washed with same sponge. If feeling really down now, if i think about it everything is touched by alcohol hands. I don't what to do, im not amritdari but still one day hope i can be gifted amrit. Now I just want to move out as soon as I get a job
  8. I know about the use of fetal cells in vaccines but this possibility that we are ingesting in our foods horrifies me . I would like to warn anyone with a delicate nature that there are pictures of people actually knowingly eating babies at the end. Ghor kalyug...
  9. Vahiguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vahiguru Ji Ki Fateh, Could someone please post in English translation and Roman transliteration the Ardas before and after eating? I'm looking for the ones that start with salok (before eating) and pauri (after eating). I know I posted this in a different thread, but I don't think anyone noticed it. I apologize for the double post. Thank you.
  10. Gurbani is clear on this - " Thora sunve thora hee khave" and " alap ahari sulabh see nidra" From my personal experience , meditation is best done on less than half of the food we normally consume. However, the big bellies punjabis have and our lavish langars clearly undermine this simple fact. Share your thoughts
  11. First of all let me say that I don't want this to turn into an argument about meat vs vegetarian, I just want to ask a question. I turned vegetarian two months ago as I have become a lot more interested in Sikhi and used to be nastik. Anyway my family and group of friends all eat meat daily and have started to make fun of me and call me a "vashnu". When I asked them what it means they didn't explain and just kept calling it to me. People keep saying to me to eat meat and saying you're young you need to eat meat and eggs to grow. I have three questions. 1. What is a vashnu and why do they call me this. 2. Will stopping meat affect my growth and health? 3. Do eggs count as meat. What is argument behind this. Thank you to Sikh Sangat for providing a website where confused youth can ask for help.

  17. I was at a cash machine outside Tesco, when a guy came over and shook my hand. Apologising, he said he was cold and had no money, and wondered if I could help. I had forgotten my pin number, so I said I had to go back to my flat and then come back. He said he'd wait. 10 minutes later I came back, but he wasn't around. I went into Tesco and bought him something, hoping he'd come back. When I couldn't find him, I asked the security guard if he'd seen where he went. Eventually I just ended up walking back to my flat, saddened and thinking "Waheguru ji, why did you take away my seva?" As I walked, I heard a random shouting noise. It was a busy noisy junction with people walking around. I thought, "It can't be him". I didn't see him, but I waited and looked around some more. There he popped out. I went over to him, and asked if he had a place to say. He said yes, he's just short of money. I told him he could go to his nearest Sikh temple for food any time. He said he knew. I gave him the food. But he said "I don't like snack bars" and gave them back. I asked if he wanted anything else, but he just asked for money. I eventually found that I had £20 on me which I gave him, and that was it. When he walked off, he met with his friend, who was another guy I'd seen earlier who appeared to be doing the same thing. They talked for a second, the guy probably telling his friend what he'd just got, and then started walking further apart so it looked like they didn't know each other. After that, I feel duped. Something similar has happened before. I was sitting in town when a guy who had a cast on his arm came over and started begging me for food in a meek voice with a saddened face. I instantly gave him my food. But as soon as he left, his whole person changed. He started loudly shouting to his friend about what he'd got, they both laughed and jeered like typical yobs and he threw the food to him. I later saw them asking from more people, and when the people rejected, they started swearing at them. I dunno man... I don't think that I do the right thing in these situations, but on the other hand I don't think I'd be able to turn them away either. :s
