Definitely screwy. Makes me wonder whether the site is secure. I hope there aren't any dodgy scripts being run when anyone visits.

Yeah seems like dodgy goings on lately.

I think we should make  backup forum just in times when this one is down.

Fateh, 

We have a lot of pending updates and made the forum as secure as we could previously. We are looking at upgrading soon so hopefully things will become stable.

We will also be reviewing the site security again to make sure everything is good. For now we have to opt for on/off method.

I can't seem to find the PM option either. They've changed it around since the upgrade. Do you know where it is?

Don't know if this is true or not, but if you were actually 74 years old; I'm honestly surprised that you would use the internet so well. (Don't want to say anything offensive about old people, because even if you aren't old; some guests on this site probably are for some reason or another).

Connect? U wot m8?!?

Nah, I'm joking. PM's genuinely the best way for me. I'm not on social media or any of that stuff. I get notifications from this site when I do get a message. There's gotta be a way to send PM! I sent one a couple of months back, but I can't see the option now.

We have some major pending updates and shall be implemented soon. Our server is not shared with anyone and @Balait_da_Sher had a very strong security in place on our server. We might also take our forum to next level of upgrade.

It's a good thing that your not on social media, better to do other stuff.

Jokes aside, Gurbani helped me out - and still does - so much. I'd be a goner without it. I was the complete opposite of calm and collected, lol.

Grand sire ! some of ur posts on my topic regarding my sexuality did move me a bit ! but u stopped short of giving me "5 point plan" that would have in your own words alleviated most of my suffering, but u fell short of giving that. Why ? you wish me to suffer more ? 

I feel really lost at times . forever in a hopeless abyss

MisterrSingh, you know befriending strangers online is not a good idea? Yep, even if you are only a 74 years old soul!

    • It amazes me how people cannot see any of the above. Are they so blinded by partisanship? Is it only objectionable if the other side does it? So, doesn't that make them bigoted when they adhere to a code of silence when their preferred candidate enacts the same policy? Yet... it's also obvious that Trump is taking baby steps, and he is indeed testing the waters. What his endgame is I have no idea. 
    • which gurbani lines you referring to ? please post.  Also I don't think anywhere any of bhagat, guru ji or bhatts baanis refer to women in any sexual way at all !  It is just example to help us understand jeev-aatma (often referred to as 'jeev-istree' in sikh literature) relationship with param-aatma (god) .  Since we have no inkling of what relationship to god feels like , those who have felt it have tried to pen it in comparison to earthly relationships we do understand ! and what more intimate relation than that of a spouse !  In Gurbani , at places, baani sometimes go along the lines of "Dear sister, tell me how you impressed your husband ? ... he doesn't like me, but likes you, tell me how you impressed ...." something along these lines ! and final closing line is of joy of how the wife finally impresses her husband and the typical shabad would close so ".. and then he came to bed and finally I enjoyed him ... " ..  I think I have read atleast one such shabad although I don't remember which exactly. but trust me, there's no sexual undercurrent in this shabad AT ALL ! it just helps us relate to our bodiless relationship with creator (something we don't understand) by comparing it to a relationship of intimacy that we do understand and often live !  Same can be said of krishna and gopis in hindu literature. Some say krishna had 16500 wives. Its not possible literally ! so again a hidden metaphor . Gopis revolving around krishna in play dance. Trust me, this often gets sexualized, but subtle metaphor is lost, namely that of souls (gopis) enjoying the spiritual bliss of krishna (god) and all of creation revolving around the creator. Rigveda and some upanishads mention the relationship of soul (jeev) and parbrahm as such :  "On a tree bearing multiple fruits, both bitter and sweet, sits two birds of a kind, eternal companions. One , of golden plume and luminous sits serenly on topmost branch, unperturbed and in bliss. On the lower branches, jumping from branch to branch, is its companion, who sometimes eat sweet fruits and sometimes bitter.  When it eats bitter fruits, it sometimes looks up and see its undisturbed , blissed companion of golden feathers. However , it soons forget its sorrows and starts eating sweet and bitter again .  Sometimes, again it eats bitter and this time flies on top branch , approaches the golden plume companion and when it goes very near, it realizes its golden plume is itself only, its inner-most self, the atma !"    the tree refers to body or world, the golden plume companion is the real self, the bird moving from here and there is jeev . the bitter and sweet fruits are dukh and sukh respectively which we bear in this world. When the bird goes on top branch (higher avastha) , it realizes its own self, and attains liberation and bliss, which gurbaani refers to as "mann tu jot saroop hai, apna mool pachaan"  Quite good example these seers made ! many such metaphors throughout in gurbani also.  The bigger question is "Can we believe ? truly?"
    • Exactly, it makes me kinda confused on how in some Gurbani lines it talks about sadhus leaving their wives but then they still keep thinking of women in their mind as a sadhu.. Can the same thing be said for gay people who try to 'leave' the marriage concept while becoming celibate & 'dharmic', but still think of guys? So does that not mean that they should get married as well.... bhul chuk maff kijye
    • Also you assert it took him decades to accept his ineligibility. . Please provide your sources. . How many decades exactly? Are you suggesting he wanted to create a parallel gurgaddi?
    • Now as I have qualified my assertion can you please qualify yours.. what evidence do you have that he didn't accept guru Angad Dev ji?
