Can someone answer these questions if they don't mind?

Why are they sitting on floor instead of sitting in chairs with their heads covered?

Admin, why did you delete the rest of the post? The two questions that remain make the post look like a reasonable, well-intentioned query. Who knows what the deleted portion looked like, but if it was anything like I could guess, was it calling Sikhs uncivilized for not sitting on chairs?

Anyway, to "Chaudry" Sahib: You're not some ignorant "gora", as you used the word "Chaudry", so regardless of whether you are Muslim or  Hindu, you should know that Sikhs sit on the floor in their Gurdwaras, just like Hindus in their Mandirs, and Muslims in their Maseets. So why are you acting like it's such a surprise that Sikhs sit on the floor. A Gurdwara is not a Lions lodge, nor is it an auditorium.

Even if "Chaudry Sahib" didn't go to the talk, it's completely obvious that this is so. Just look at the sangat sitting on the langar mats. They're not sitting on the whole floor, they're just sitting on the long (lengthwise) langar mats. 

Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.

"Chaudry" Sahib da export da kamm hai:

Here's his website:

https://www.exportersindia.com/punjab/socks.htm

Why are you all getting into his business? He was asking an earnest question, as to whether these Sikhras don't own any socks.

He was a poor exporter looking to make a fortune selling each Sikh in the world two pairs of socks.

Vechara Chaudry Sahib!

 

Reminds me of this tuk:

ਇਲਤਿ ਕਾ ਨਾਉ ਚਉਧਰੀ ਕੂੜੀ ਪੂਰੇ ਥਾਉ ॥

Eilath Kaa Naao Chaudhri Koorree Poorae Thhaao ||

The trouble-maker is called a leader, and the liar is seated with honor.

Yes we do sit on chairs and wear socks, but we do also remove them and sit on the floor, if we want so.

Have you ever been into a Gurdwara? How do you find us there?  is it not similar to the video in your post?

Then?  What is your problem?

Out of respect and tradition, when someone is doing parchar or keertan, we do sit in front of them on the floor and remove our socks.

Chaudray jee, if you respect yourself, just respect our traditions.

It is obvious, you have not paid attention to a single word in your video posted, rather looking at the surroundings. It is like a student going to class in school, pays not attention to what the teacher says, but looks around the ceilings, the floor and the walls.

This attitude, will surely make him remain a dumb donkey!

    • Its not just him. One of the most ridiculous notions peddled by the left is that ALL of the far right are idiots who can't tell the difference. The reality is something completely different. People like Ben Shapiro and Milo Yiannopoulos, both of whom have a respectable number of followers remind people of this whenever there is an attack as the media paints us with the same brush as the terrorists.  Most of the big Right wing "preachers" i guess is an accurate term, know the difference and tend to cite it always.
    • Don't worry about not having a spiritual experience. The main thing is you don't divert from God's name. You don't want to get into ego from experiences either.  All people are not the same, an experience to one person may not be the same as another, however large or small it maybe. We should bear in mind, that we do not recite God's name for experiences, but to think of it as our duty and love towards them. If we start to ask for experiences, then we have forgotten what our goal is.  It is up to Waheguru to grace somebody with an experience. It can happen how much more or less time on one spends on Simran, than another. Do not compare yourself to others, an experience will happen in Waheguru's Hukam, not by anybody saying how or when.  Its good to increase Simran, Gurbani if you wish to and spending more time to devote yourself towards it, will never be incomplete of anything. But we must focus on doing Simran and not expect anything back in return. Just leave that to God to decide.  Say if somebody has an experience, does it necessarily mean it has to be a physical one or that is visible? And then what after that?  Doing Simran, reciting/listening to  Gurbani is an experience in itself. We are here in this world for this experience of having the opportunity to, that is also an experience we should be grateful for. But we forget God is everywhere.  ਤੂੰ ਜਲਿ ਥਲਿ ਮਹੀਅਲਿ ਭਰਿਪੁਰਿ ਲੀਣਾ ਤੂੰ ਆਪੇ ਸਰਬ ਸਮਾਣਾ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ 
      तूं जलि थलि महीअलि भरिपुरि लीणा तूं आपे सरब समाणा ॥१॥ रहाउ ॥ 
      Ŧūʼn jal thal mahī▫al bẖaripur līṇā ṯūʼn āpe sarab samāṇā. ||1|| rahā▫o. 
      Thou art fully contained in water, dry land nether and upper regions. Thou Thyself art pervading everywhere. Pause. 
      SGGS ji Ang 731 🙏🏻 Dhan Guru Nanak Dev ji   I understand that you maybe desiring for an experience to feel the presence of God for yourself, but just remind yourself they are everywhere. When we do Simran with love for God, then we'll start to feel the anand (bliss) of it, when God graces us with it.   
    • Apart from the ignorant British attacking a Sikh wearing a turban (which I hear is very rare, I'm Canadian/American btw), I doubt that the British people will target Sikhs. Instead, what they will do is far worse, they will use our history with the Muslims to incite us and basically use us as fodder as they did in their Raj, though this time, it'll be purely against the Muslims. 
    • It is going to be of no use to you to know how much simran to do. You simply have to arrange time for yourself. .. approximately 2 hours 40 minutes everyday. One tenth of your time everyday to Devote to simran. It is a blessing from God if one is able to put in this amount of time.  Pichle janam dhi kamayi counts as well greatly. God has preselected exactly whom he would like to have these experiences.  If you have these experiences, then you have to learn to not spread them about and you will have more. There are many more things that come to pass... we are spiritual beings suffering from separation from our creator. Reconnection is going to occur slowly and understanding these experiences comes slowly too. As you keep your simran up, you are able to obtain great amounts of happiness and peace from it. So forming a habit of simran should be done as a conscious effort.
