Travelling in India - Gurudwara langars

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm going to India later this month, and would really like to go to a Gurudwara and have langar. I've got a few questions though. I know that it is meant for needy people that cannot afford a meal. I'm a western man and could afford to pay for a meal. Is it culturally insensitive for me to come along? That's the opposite of what I want to do as I thought it would be a great cultural experience. Is there somewhere that I can donate in the Gurudwara to help?

Thanks for any advice,

Toby

Might sound like one of those super fatties you see eating the Langar, you know the ones who do nothing else except munch on food and gossip but here goes.

Definitely try the Langar at Harmandir Sahib, had the honour of visiting Nanaksar too and the Langar there was amazing (this was when I was a kid though) and Patasi are just to die for.

    • Very good advice. Take a deep look at your life partner. 
    • That was the issue to begin with, I had heard this but I could never find the source to it. Which made it controversial to some people. 
    • God through Gurbani & Science. The writer of the book has done a-lot of research and almost all of writing within the book reference Brahmgyanis, scholars and other mahapurkhs as the source of what he put down. If there's anything in particular you want to read I an upload it here, I really don't mind. Or message me and I'll send you it. The hierarchy is something like Indra<Brahma<Shiva<Vishnu<Maya As one passes another takes his place, same for the other trinity.  Guru Ji wanted us to worship the Supreme Lord, not the Devtas. I'm speculating here (as I could never hope to understand what Akaal Purkh Saroop Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj was thinking) but if these secrets were all released at the time then there was nothing stopping the Hindus just worshipping a respected Sahibzaade to continue Devta pooja.  The universe is so mysterious and vast, heck if you read other scriptures there's interesting details about why certain avatars of Vishnu had to take birth through the womb. These facts are omitted from other texts. Probably the ones that are contained to our brahmand (Galaxy) since each region has its own trinity.  Again im just speculating. You dont need to tell me that penji  the main issue arises when everyone tries to link Sikhi into everything, rather than treating it like a full picture they see it as a jigsaw.
    • In my work, I have to deal with lots of frustration and once in a while I literally feel punching wall. Anger is very bad. I find some ways by not letting steam getting filled in my head: Start saying “NO” when you meant to say no. Don’t take any project whether at home or work. It may offend other person but it will be quick and short term. If you say yes and then you end up not doing it and start making excuses etc will end up having 2 hot heads clashing with each other. Music helps a lot. Listen to classical music or a soothing simran or mool mantar jaap helps diverting your attention to positive-ness.
    • which confirms what guru ji has said that they are just as subject to panj chor /maya as others
