How does one become Nihang

Quote

Nihang Darshan Singh;

“He was a man from a rich family and when he came to Sabo Ki Talwandi, seeing the Nihangs he was so fascinated and instantly fell in love with our lifestyle that he went to Baba Santa Singh and requested to be initiated a Nihang Singh himself. Baba Santa Singh declined several times saying that this was not the path for him and that he should carry on living his comfortable lifestyle. Baba Santa Singh pointed to his jewellery and said “this is not how we live”, the man took off his gold rings and threw them into the sarovar (holy pool). Baba Santa Singh gave him one of his old Kacherrae (shorts) and gave him and old sack to wear in place of his clothing. For one year he lived like this and did service for the Khalsa wearing only a sack. After one year Baba Santa Singh gave him and old bana, it was one of his own. He went on to become a great Singh, did a tremendous amount of service and meditation. He maintained a great amount of humility; he passed away just a few years ago. He never had a kasherra or bana made, he would only accept Baba Santa Singhs own clothes. He attained great spiritual heights before passing away.” (Audio recording, August 2006)

In the end, to what Cloud Jee says, we may give any name, but the resullt is that, what matters most, are the fine and noble qualities of a real sikh, which are: humilty, faith, detachment, sewa and bhakti (deep love for Wahiguru).

Sat Sree Akal.

Vaheguroo...

I think the OP may be referring to the lifestyle and ways of Nihung life including dress code, affiliation with the fauj etc as well as being a Sikh and having the values you have mentioned.

Apologies if I am wrong.

How is one officially called nihang?

Veer, are you referring to the lifestyle and ways of nihung Singh's? As in the affiliation?

One who is above Sikh and sukh, someone who is a karam yogi ie always doing seva.  Cold, heat and hunger doesn't affect him 

always engaged in shastar vidiya such a Nihang fights for justice 

his hands are cut with so much seva, his clothes are soiled with langar Di seva, his bodily skin is dark and rough, his bones are solid, he is never lazy

      VJKK VJKF I completely agree with this. If we don't stop then how will the later generations cope with this nonsense? They are already being ruined by the western world and we don't need to plant this seed of castes into their brains. We can help change the future generations...   VJKK VJKF
    • Watched the video and it's really good... for heavenly sake it's not a film about Sikhism ....i thought it highlighted the modern typical Asian family.  And definitely a good film to teach others about Sikh diaspora
    •     1.  Where did I say that we should not be protesting?  Where did I say that I say that what happened to him is okay?  You have put words into my mouth.    2.  You say that "no one expects to be kidnapped in the middle of the day for airing your own opinions on a website in the "largest democracy" in the world".  This statement is absurd.  Anyone who has any familiarity with the human rights violations in Punjab over the last 40 years would know that such things can happen.  What happened to Jaswant Singh Khalra? 
    •   Do you have a problem with reading comprehension?  Where did I suggest I was better than others for being a sardar?  I was talking about something completely different.  One poster asked why, given his background, Jaggi took a risk in going to India.  ANY answer would be speculative, and I speculated that being a mona who doesn't deal with being identified as a Sikh 24/7, maybe he was not as vigilant as he should have been.  Nowhere in there did i say anything about me being better than him or him being worse than me.  You took what I said and completely twisted it and made it into something else.   You call me a nindak, but you are a liar for lying about what I did and did not say.
    •   Another poster posed a question: given his background, why would Jaggi take the risk in going to India? ANYONE who attempts to answer such a question is going to be assuming something.  Nobody knows.  I speculated based upon what I know about him.  Any answer ANYONE would have given would have consisted of speculation.  Obviously, nobody knows exactly what was going through his mind except him. Stop getting so emotional.  We are just having a conversation on this form, and speculation and assumptions are going to form a part of any conversation, especially when such questions are posed.
