Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! There has been a recent trend I have seen among younger Sikhs who state that Khand Di Phaul is only for those who want to join the Khalsa Army, and something that not all Sikhs should strive for. They given examples of Bhai Kaneya Ji and Bhai Nanad Lal to further their argument, but forget that both Sikhs did receive Amrit in the form of charan amrit becuase they lived pre-1699. Of Course there is only ONE Amrit, and it comes from Bani, but shouldn't a Sikh who has already given their head spiritually also have no problem give it temporally through the Khand Di Phaul ceremony as well? I think a part of this fallacy stems from a misunderstanding of what exactly Khand Di Phaul is. In 1699, the Guru didnt ask for those who want to join the army, or wear the 5Ks, it was allways to ask for a HEAD. Thus, any true Sikh who would give up their own head, would have no problem receiving Khand Di Phaul. What do you think? Should Sikhs stive for Khand Di Phaul? or is practicing the saintly aspect of Sikhi enough?
