Regarding sikh women

Recommended Posts

raju je this has nothing to do with prayer or seva

just istting on tabiya

if one ones to do prayer whos stoppingthem

if one wants seva, there many sevas at gurughar

and gust je is right

the only reason the area shud be keptclean ohyscially for guru je at all times

if a singh didnt do full ishnaan, he cant go there and sit down either

yes, ov cors itz k 2 do seva itz jus 4 da fact keep the area surrounding Guru Ji with respect. U nva realy can tll wen ur oing 2 leak. Jus sitting on the Tabiya I dont think is right while menstruating. I'm a female myself and I dnt agree with sitting on the Tabiya because u dont know what can happen. Seva and paaht is different, u still can do seva @ the gurdwara and do paaht if your menstruating nothing wrong in that. Just make sure that Guru Ji is respected.

Sitting on 'tabiya' is equivalent to 'conducting a prayer' is it not ?? Plz correct me if I'm wrong ?

(to the female Sangat) u no if you've taken Amrit and your menstruating can you wear a separate underwear underneath the Kachera?

yeah because if you look at how a Kachera is made it is not practical to hold a sanitary towel in position

i agree wit Gupt dasn dass i also think with regards to the leakage thing you have to bare in mind how long you will be sitting - usually a copule of hours right?; if a woman is menstruating heavily it may not be suitable for her to sit at Tabiya

agree with anjaan bhainjee..nicely said... anyway, the point we're basically trying to get across is

1) Women/Bibiyaan/Ladies/Singhnees/Kaurs...it's perfectly alright to go to gurdwara, do keertan in sadh sangat, do paath in sadh sangat, participate in sevaa during your menstrual period. Those who do not participate in the abovementioned activities do so because of their own personal choice 'cuz periods can be hellishly uncomfortable most times especially during first few days. Therefore, such women stay away to avoid aggravating the already painful cramps etc. Bear in mind that staying away is a personal choice and sikhism does not discriminate against bibiyaan by saying they are unclean during their menstrual periods and cannot participate in sevaa etc.

2) With regards to sitting on tabiya, it appears that the contention here is that...because a woman might leak, it's inappropriate because it dirties Guru Maharaj's sanctum...i suppose it's for the best that such doctrines are being preached. However, if a lady wanna sit on tabiya to take hukumnama or something, I suppose it's alright cuz she's not gonna be sitting for hours or so. Rather a complicated issue....hmmmm :)wacko.gif :doh: @

how many people do ishnaan and their minds are freakin filthy as all hell?

just check out the giani thread.

And our Guru Sahib sat with the poorest of the poor, lowest of the low, people's minds need to be clean and that is reinforced in Gurbani over and over again. If women who are menstruating are unclean should they not make roti for their family for a week huh? I mean you wouldn't want an unclean woman making your family's food right? So i guess the family is eating out for a week once a month until menapause?

Why make things so complicated, and by the way who wants to volunteer to make sure the woman doing sewa isn't on her period?

that shabad is beeing used out of context

this has nothing to do with the brahmin thinkinf of spirtually unclean

its bout physcial

if i had to frekin puke every 2 sec and i go sit on guru jes tabiya and i do stuff everywhere, thas pure paap

knowing that, i went, and i made guru jes tabiya physically unclean

as guru jes sikhs, we shud have pyaar, and want it to be clean

pick up and dirt there

if a women is on period, chance u might leak or somethin

and then guru jes tabiya wu be dirty

its bout keping guru jes taboya clean

even singhs cant go without full ishnaan

and if u have like uncontroable throwing up pproblem or somethiin, u shudnt sit ther either

    • Exactly. To be proud of one's language we should strive to speak words from our own language. Rabb is a commonly heard word in our community, but many do not know that it is Arabic. We can use indigineous words such as Ishwar or Parmatma instead during daily discourse. It's actively trying to bring back words that we used but were forced to extinction in our language because of violent invaders.
    • The question would be are there arab loanwords that can be gotten rid off if we have perfectly good indigenous words we could use instead. For example, should we use sansaar instead of duniya.  What other words could we replace if it is already in our vocabulary. Do some us prefer the back throated sounds of the Arab words because we think it sounds sexy and we can pretend to be some pakhandi Sufi poet? 
    • We would also have a far deeper presence in the Gangetic Plains.  No British, no East India Company, no Purbia /Bihari army with no mutiny.  The last remaining mughals would have been finished off a lot quicker.  Awadh,  Agra,  Lucknow would have fallen into Sikh hands.  There would be a link of Sikhi stretching all the way to Patna.

If you share me, you haven't got me. What am I? 4) What is so delicate that saying its name breaks it? 5) am free yet priceless, you can't own me but you can use me, you can't keep me but you can spend me. Once you lost me you can never have me back. What am I?   Well, the answers are : 1) Friend 2) Drop the  S 3) Secret 4) Silence 5)Time
    •   THIS IS EPIC A man was being interviewed for a post of a commando in the Army... Interviewer : we want a person with a suspicious mind,  always alert,  ready to attack, acute sense of hearing, detective ability, and most importantly, having a killer instinct ! So do you think you are eligible ? Man: Sir ....  can my wife apply ?     Made for each other.. Relationship is easy,
      when spouses know each other Here are 2 classic  examples: 1) A husband comes home after attending a club meeting.
      He tells his wife,“Dear there was a drinking competition after meeting today.” His wife spontaneously...,
         “Who got the second position?” 2) A wife tells her husband,
      “Dear there was a letter for you.
      It’s written on the envelope,
      ‘Private and confidential.’” The husband casually asks,
           “What was written inside?" Great understanding of each other.
