In Sikh/Punjabi culture, when dear relatives and friends visit... we never send them away empty handed

Good idea. The other things that one gets gifted is women's suits that you're never going to have sewn or a man's shirt that's probably the wrong size and colour. Although I do think this is stopping nowadays. Cakes seem to be the new thing now.

Good food & courteous behaviour is sufficient no need for gifts.

I can understand why you can't cook, but it isn't some elite skill that you can't learn yourself. Punjabis have always been giving gifts to each other since pre-Sikh era, they aren't going to stop just because some guy on the internet is saying stupid stuff about Kaurs.

    •   “It is amazing how people everywhere hold the same false beliefs and hear the same destructive voices in our heads. We can call that the lower self. That in itself shows that we are all basically one consciousness, albeit based in physicality and duality. But to the bright side, there is also a higher consciousness, a Oneness, we share. We can wake up to that lower self, see that it has never served or protected us, and let go... into the Silence and Stillness where there already exists the freedom and peace we long for.”  
    •   ENLIGHTENMENT   "Enlightenment or true spiritual growth, can be achieved only through persistent exercise of real love.”   *And the persistent excercise of real love, is the only one we offer to our beloved Wahiguru Akal Purukh, through Bhakti. There are many types of love in different relationships, but He being the embodiment of supreme Truth, is the only One Being(Ik Oankar), worthy of all our unconditional love, and more, and more, and more love, without reservations. Sat Sree Akal.
    • He just said eating meat vs vegetarian  isn't a paap; as both are organisms..
    • He was 100% biased also he kept saying Dhandrian wale broke "hirday" of those attached to guru sahib; every gursikh knows a hirda joined with guru sahib cannot be broken... Maybe he should've addressed whether ajnala still believes in baba jarnail Singh's shaheedi 🤔
    •   Speaking the truth   “Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being light years ahead of your time. If you're right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind even if you are a minority of one. The truth is still the truth.”
