  1. Vaheguroo Jee Kaa Khalsaa Vaheguroo Jee Kee Fateh!! Sadh sangat ji, I am looking for some direction/advice. I took Amrit at a young age but ended up doing kuraits such as drinking alcohol, smoking and cocaine at one stage. It was a tough time I was going through but no excuse as I still had love for Sikhi. Whilst doing this I never slaughtered my Kes in any way. I always had a deep feeling of guilt whilst doing the above and hid it from everyone (the activities and guilt). Later I met someone also Amritdaari and she had done a kurait as well. I did not disclose my kuraits although she as aware that I was 'Amritdaari' and had taken my Sri Sahib off but kept all other four kakkars. We become a couple and one thing led to another. Anyway, we are no longer together as she passed away in a fatal accident when she was in India. I have upped my Gurbani and Simran so much with Maharaaj's kirpa since. I went to do pesh 2 years ago and took Amrit again. I wasn't able to fully explain all the kuraits I had done as one of the Panj Piyaaray just began shouting at me for the first thing I explained which is fair enough but I still feel my pesh was not complete becuase I didn't get a chance to have a word again due to the amount of praani's taking Amrit that day. Since then I have been in touch with someone and we are really close. Problem is she is married and not happy. Kaam has always been a BIG weakness of mine although I have only been with one person. I have failed again Sangat ji. Having so much knowledge of Gurbani and doing so much Simran and Seva I have still fallen. I want to sort myself out again but need to wait until I can really keep on track and get my avasta to that level. Amrit is priceless and I still remember the Panj Piyaara saying "amrit baar baar nee mildha". I would like to know if anyone has been or is in the same situation or how many times people have been to pesh and taken Amrit? Sorry for the long story but I thought I would explain the situation(s). Thank you very any answers, feedback and guidance in advance.
  2. Forgiveness

    I have done a lot of bad things in my life. Nothing like murder before anyone thinks that lol, but things which against sikhi. I'll be honest and say, mostly kaam related stuff which i am not proud of and deeply regret now. Recently ive been getting more and more in sikhi and making an effort to become a better person and sikh. Making an effort to read more about our beautiful religion and our great history. Ive read some rehitnamas recently which detail things which are greatly prohibited and what happens to those who have committed these things. That made me think, will the Guru/God forgive all the bad things i have previously done? Is it a case of that you've done x,y, z so x,y,z is going to happen to you? Or can our previous sins be erased by now living a pious life and doing simran/paat.
  3. This diseased worm has no words to describe the eternally supreme benevolence of Guru Sahib jee. But still couldn't stop myself from expressing my thoughts. (a.) Pandit Lal Chand Peshauria (from village Panjokhara near Ambala) did not understand the supremacy of Guru Sahib, and was irritated as to howcome a "little kid" can be called Sahib Sri Guru Harkishan Jee Maharaj. He tried in vain to test Guru Sahib, and Guru Sahib did kirpa on Chhajju who was able to do the meaning of Bhagvad Gita. Lal Chand fell on Guru Sahib's feet and became a Sikh. In 1699 he took Amrit and became Lal Singh, and a few years later in 1704 he was among those Singhs who were fighting 1 million enemy troops at Chamkaur Sahib. When Sahibzada Baba Ajeet Singh jee went out into the heat of battle, Bhai Lal Singh was among that jatha of 5 Singhs who went with Baba jee and attained Shaheedi. (b.) Syed Baig was the brother of Bibi Naseera who was Pir Budhu Shah jee's wife. He was sent by the Mughals to assasinate Sahib Sri Guru Gobind Singh Jee Maharaj. Bibi Naseera pleaded with him not to, but he didn't pay any attention. On his way to the battle, he kept thinking to himself "If this Guru is really something, then He will know what I have in mind and will show me His greatness". The scene of battle was set. Singhs and Mughals were looking eye-to-eye ready to strike. In the midst of this, Dasmesh Pita jee went all by Himself right in the middle of both armies and called out to Syed Baig, and said "Syed Baig, the battle will go on, but first you come and tell me what do you have in mind". Syed Baig mind was blown away. He got off his horse and submitted his sword at Guru Sahib's feet. It is said that he became a Sikh and was a Shaheed fighting alongside with the Singhs. ਕੋਟਿ ਪਰਾਧ ਮਹਾ ਅਕ੍ਰਿਤਘਨ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਬਹੁਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਸਹੀਐ ॥ Again and again, God puts up with the millions of sins of the supremely ungrateful ones. (c.) Pandit Kirpa Ram Dutt (from Mattan, Kashmir) came with a legion of destitute Kashmiri Pandits at the feet of Sahib Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Jee Maharaj seeking shelter from the attrocities of Iftikhar Khan. After Guru Shaib jee's Shaheedi, he became a Sikh and became Bhai Kirpa Singh, another one of the blessed Shaheeds of Chamkaur Sahib along with his brother Bhai Sanmukh Singh (formerly Sanmukh Das). (d.) Pir Budhu Shah ji, a very highly revered Sayyad Sufi saint met Dasmesh Pita ji when Guru Sahib was very young and Pir jee was pretty aged. They both had spiritual discussions after which Pir jee fell at Guru Sahib's feet. The first 2 instances are of those who came before Guru Sahib with arrogance and ill intentions. The other 2 came to His feet seeking in all humility. But see the blessed nature of SatGuru Patshah jee, He lovingly accepted every single one of them inspite of whatever intentions they had, and not just that, He showered them with so much love that they happily sacrificed their lives. What must they have felt seeing Him right before themselves? What must they have thought when they saw His eyes full of love and only love, inspite of the fact that they had so much negativity in their minds for Guru Sahib? ਕਉੜਾ ਬੋਲਿ ਨ ਜਾਨੈ ਪੂਰਨ ਭਗਵਾਨੈ ਅਉਗਣੁ ਕੋ ਨ ਚਿਤਾਰੇ ॥ He does not know any bitter words; the Perfect Lord God does not even consider my faults and demerits. ਪਤਿਤ ਪਾਵਨੁ ਹਰਿ ਬਿਰਦੁ ਸਦਾਏ ਇਕੁ ਤਿਲੁ ਨਹੀ ਭੰਨੈ ਘਾਲੇ ॥ It is the Lord's natural way to purify sinners; He does not overlook even an iota of service. Only and only SatGuru Patshah jee can do bakshish of such ilaahi prem! Please correct and forgive any mistakes. Mehtab Singh December 27, 2013

  5. I have been feeling this way and I need to get it out of my chest. To start off, I'm a 20 year old girl who's recently just started loving my religion, Sikhi. I had to experience a major downlow in my life for me to have my eyes truly opened and get my head out of this life, all this illusion..However, I did make mistakes in my past which I took self-pity for over 1.5 years and then I realized "that's it..I can't sit here and be sad anymore, Guru Sahib has already forgiven me". I am now starting to understand that my past actions are in the past - and whatever I have done wrong (which btw were A LOT OF THINGS!) ..I have to simply let go. Now, I read a few posts on here about people that went the same wrong path as me and realized how badly they messed up and were asking for forgiveness. However, I came across RUDE people that told them "oh well, you should've known better" or "Well, thats what you get by doing that, or doing this", etc etc etc...The list goes on. I just want to let everyone know - and I mean EVERYONE - cause I know all of you have made mistakes..that it is okay to make mistakes. Some are bigger than others, but as long as YOU can feel it in your whole body and soul that you were wrong and you ask with a pure heart for an apology to God...he has already forgiven you my friend <3 The hardest part is not too get forgiveness from babaji (because let me reassure you that he already has forgiven you), sometimes it's about forgiving ourselves for what we have done. It is not easy to let go of our past mistakes and the past can be such a heavy burden to hold on too every day of our lives but I realized that life is just that - life. Don't take it too seriously...you're here for ONE thing and that is to go back home. Your time is NOW - not the past, not the future but right here, right NOW. If you can truly feel your unconditional love for God NOW then nothing else matters. Do good things NOW - don't repeat your mistakes NOW - Love God NOW...it's all about right now (hopefully, i've said now enough to make you guys understand hahaha) I just made this post because I know a lot of you are seeking some kind of comfort from your past..or something "bad" you did yesterday. No one else is gonna give you comfort besides our guru sahib <3 you have to feel the love flowing in your body for him and that is how you know your life is slowly changing..Go recite some bani, spend some 'alone' time with babaji, etc.. All I know is I'm not the same girl I used to be a year ago. Living in a westernized society, I made mistakes (boyfriends, intimacy) and even though God has always been there for me, I am beginning to truly see him. He's always been within me, I was just so caught up with illusionary stuff that I forgot to look inside of me, my heart, my soul. Okay this is getting super long (and I need to get back to studying lol) but I just wanted to write this out to everyone who needed to hear a positive thought today. God is there for you, he is NOT mad at you...we're all his children and he's seeing us fall and stand back again and one day..we will be back at our true home. For now, hang in there <3 Life is too precious - our Gurus have given us this life because we are one step closer to God..let's take this chance, yea? and to all those mean people trying to make people feel bad about their mistakes...STOP. You are not superior to anyone - we are all here as equal's. Let's offer guidance to those that need it & love everyone. Wow, I'm sorry for sounding like Mother Teresa =P but hopefully, this makes sense and I'm sorry if I said anything wrong.
