How can we educate sikhs who go to hindu mandirs ? ... How about using reverse psychology ?

What a pathetic excuse.

might be pathetic excuse to you, but a LOT of our young men do find it cumbersome and constricting to the head. This and fashion-prasti is biggest reason for why most punjabi young men today are shorn-headed. How else you explain so rampant haircut-heads in punjab ?

I respect turban. Don't get me wrong. I do tie a turban daily, but to say that its comfortable won't be a very honest thing or to say that heads won't feel more comfy and light without turbans won't be much of a lie TBH.

I am wearing turban since 10 yrs now. Turban has contributed a lot to my life, somedays can be painful but I do it for my faith .

I think we all should. However, the modern youngsters will not necessarily agree with our sentiments. To them , its a 6 meters of uncomfortable headgear. Don't we have sore ears , pain in the necks , excruciating pull of hair in the front region of head when we first started tying turban , sometime at the age of 16 ?

I will not lie, it was uncomfortable at times, although I am now used to it. However we need to bring awareness to youth of whats the importance of turban and how to make it easy for them.

Most of these guys are just wannabes , who would accuse me of being an attention seeker, when infact all the issues I raised are valid ones related to health of the kaum .  

But whenever I say against idol worship in sikhi or sikhs going to mandirs, monehs like DallySingh and others are every offended ,as if I pinched their raw nerve. Wonder why?

Our kids need to be taught gurmukhi. ENglish translation can only do so much.

If I kept banging on about gayness and how it is detrimental to our community, you'd probably not like it too. When I think about it, the truth is that very few of us aren't in our own glass houses.

Go to mandir, Hindu.  Everybody know you are not a Sikh.

Really sad Hindu!! We had this conversation many times, and you have not replied back. Let me ask you again: what you have to say about Sikh Genocide of 1984? The day your Hindu brothers will put sajan and tytler in jail then come and talk, otherwise take your sorry excuse for being a Hindu some where else.

The day some Hindu rape your mother and kill your father will be the day you talk to me! Really sad Hindu!!

Keep venting Bro. Let all the hate out. 

The Delhi massacre of Sikhs in 1984 was a shameful act,  a human tragedy where communalism, fascism and the worst of humanity was laid bare. 

Sajjan and tytler in my book are criminals. The product and manifestation of corruptible political systems.. 

I believe that they should be held to account but more importantly we try and uproot and take down the structures that creates people like that

Why don't you bang on about your inability to expand your thinking since 3rd grade.  Broken record, get a day job and stop eating up public funds.  20 odd years on Sikh forums with your 3rd grade brain.  You must be 400 pounds and still sitting in your bed with the same 20 year old sweat pants.  You probably even created a easy access hole for the back side....only took 20 years.  Harassing posters on Sikh forums.  You are a coward.  I wouldn't be surprised if its revealed you are a pervert.  History has told us those who behave in your fashion are perverts and have or may committ acts of pedophilia. 20 years of harassing people.  Your track record is filled with filth.

I have changed my turban style a few times since I started tying turban. It's been over a decade. 

But the difference really happened when I started wearing something under my turban which stops any pain. I used to tie a ramal. Now I just tie something around my joora, like the start of dumalla tying. As long as their is a buffer between your head and the over turban then you should be ok. Need to experiment a bit and watch some youtube videos to get inspiration. I am trying to change to a proper dumalla eventually.

I am not venting, I am trying to tell some truth to a Hindu, who is slow.  Calling Sajan and tytler criminals is akin to calling Hitler a criminal, but that shows the mindset of a sick Hindu.  You are calling mass murderers criminals, who has not been punished for than 30 years, and Hindus like you, have voted for them every time. 90% of hindus voted for these mass murderers in 1984, now you can see how sick hindus like you are.  If you want these mass murderers to be held accountable then write on some Hindu discussion boards instead of spewing your lies on a Sikh board.  If we try to change the political system (as you mentioned) then you tell us why Khalistan is not a  great idea and SIkhs should stay with India because India is a secular country.  If India is secular then how come Sikhs political prisoners are still in jails after more than 20 years, but mass murderers are free.  Oh well, i don't expect anything better from a Hindu like you.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji must be crying.. 

I always thought being a Sikh required Humility, strength through knowledge and quest 'khoj'.. 

Faith must be skin deep and weak if one thinks calling someone a 'Hindu' should somehow be offensive.. The mind boggles 

Listen dumb Hindu, your kin has raped and killed my fellow Sikhs, and pathetic Hindus like you have been voting and defending them for the last 30 years.  You think that my Guru will like that. 

Go and worship your mata cow! At least have some semblance of intelligent if you wanna argue that mass murderer pathetic Hindus are just criminals. You are sorry excuse for a being a human that mean you are a pathetic Hindu.

Behave yourself. Do not dare to write such language for our Gurus.

    • A moorakh like me would need to listen to Katha on this. For now, what in your opinion, is the summary of what you posted? The blemish of apostasy remains in the eyes of who? Guru Sahib? The public? The apostate himself? I can understand that it remains but what exactly is it saying? Is this blemish one of distrust?
    • Here's another post you can confused face.  I wouldn't want you to be bored.
    • No apologies required. Just to let you know where I'm coming from, Bhai Gurdas ji says when you become a bemukh, even if you come back to the Guru, the stain remains: ਜੈਸੇ ਘਾਉ ਘਾਇਲ ਕੋ ਜਤਨ ਕੈ ਨੀਕੋ ਹੋਤ ਪੀਰ ਮਿਟਿ ਜਾਇਲੀਕ ਮਿਟਤ ਨ ਪੇਖੀਐ । Just as the wound gets cured with medicine and the pain also vanishes, but the scar of the wound is never seen to vanish.  ਜੈਸੇ ਫਾਟੇ ਅੰਬਰੋ ਸੀਆਇ ਪੁਨਿ ਓਢੀਅਤ ਨਾਗੋ ਤਉ ਨ ਹੋਇ ਤਊ ਥੇਗਰੀ ਪਰੇਖੀਐ । Just as a torn cloth stitched and worn does not bare the body but the seam of the stitch is visible and conspicuous.  ਜੈਸੇ ਟੂਟੈ ਬਾਸਨੁ ਸਵਾਰ ਦੇਤ ਹੈ ਠਠੇਰੋ ਗਿਰਤ ਨ ਪਾਨੀ ਪੈ ਗਠੀਲੋ ਭੇਖ ਭੇਖੀਐ । Just as a broken utensil is repaired by coppersmith and even the water does not leak from it, but it is repaired form stays.  ਤੈਸੇ ਗੁਰ ਚਰਨਿ ਬਿਮੁਖ ਦੁਖ ਦੇਖਿ ਪੁਨਿ ਸਰਨ ਗਹੇ ਪੁਨੀਤ ਪੈ ਕਲੰਕੁ ਲੇਖ ਲੇਖੀਐ ॥੪੧੯॥ Similarly, a disciple who has turned away from the holy feet of the True Guru comes back to the Guru's refuge when he feels the pain of his actions. Although he is freed of his sins and becomes pious, yet the .blemish of his apostasy remains.  (419) ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ ਜੀ : ਕਬਿੱਤ ੪੧੯ ਪੰ. ੪  
    • The Katha was Taksali based if that makes it any easier for you to understand where I was coming from. They have a certain flavour and way of explaining things. With Taksalis sometimes it's the small things that stick with you, and it's amazing how just hearing something once has the ability to change your soch, hell even your speech pattern! I completely get what you mean though. Guess it was just a misunderstanding, apologies brother.
    • I have sympathy for your approach, and I'm also not saying you're wrong. All I'm saying is (in my experience), the majority of Sikhs speak of "breaking Amrit" or ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਤੋੜਨਾ. An alternative way of phrasing things that might be acceptable to you is "breaking your Amrit vows" or "breaking your Amrit lifestyle". As far as the original poster denigrating Amrit and Amritdharis, yes, I agree that wrong acts by some Amritdharis does not mean you can just badmouth Amritdharis as a group.
