I do a benti to everyone to watch the following video all the way throughout because it is our responsibility to know what we are meant to do in this life and how we can uphold Sikhi and stop Punjabi cultures from mixing in with proper ways of Sikhi.

Please watch all the way and it only takes a few gursikhs to open the eyes of hundreds. Please daas is doing a benti to watch this video, not only will it open our eyes but if we spread the message we can also open the eyes of many others.

;When I was young, my mum did Kiran Sohila to my sibling and I each night. 

She played Japji Sahib in the mornings and we went to the Gurdwara. 

All of this instilled a belief and love in God that I couldn't explain logically, it was a feeling of love and awe at His greatness and beauty. Staring at the Gurus pictures, I knew they were the vessels of love and peace. 

 I used to picture Guru Nanak Dev Jis face in a blazing white light when I was afraid at night, Noone told me to, I just knew what to do, I knew he was my Guru and I loved Him. 

A child blessed with divine knowledge can make a great Bhagat, children are capable of great love And True Love is what is required on the path.

Aww... That's true because if the parents don't teach their children ithihaas and read bani to them then how will they love the Guru? I had to learn bani myself and I learnt to read Gurmukhi myself because my parents never put in Punjabi class. I had to walk this path myself and the only person supporting me was Vaheguru. My love for Vaheguru kept me going and with maharaj's kirpa I might be taking amrit in a few years and I am still having a tough time convincing my parents that I'm ready. We can tell its Kaljug because back in the days, the parents supported their kids when taking amrit but now... the parents are trying to stop their kids from taking amrit! People nowadays care too much about what others think. I feel you... the love for Vaheguru is immense and cannot be explained.

all kids should be given one of those metal malas and encouraged to do Naam Simran every morning IMO.  Too much emphasis is put on Paath, but you do not need to be able to read Gurmukhi or understand Paath for Naam Simran.

Yes veerji I am a child myself ( I am 13) but I try to listen to as much bani as I can and I try to jaap Naam for the whole day. I try to get my brother to do it but he refuses to. My mum doesn't encourage him either so if the parents don't encourage their kids then how will they know about the big lie surrounding them? They need to realise that the world is false and their belongings won't stay with them forever. I found it necessary to put this video on the forum and hopefully we can help to make Sikhi the first priority again. As I said it only takes a few gursikhs to open the eyes of hundreds.

What does the next generation need to do?

Let us ask ourselves, how far has the present or past generations understood Gurmat.

If the roots are weak, naturally, the growth will also be shaky.

The thing is not about how we perceive sikhee(manmat), rather how much we have implemented it within ourselves, and moulded our lives according to Sikhee(Gurmat).

Changeless Truth is One: Satnam. Truth is not like fashion, which changes according to different times, places, or people. Therfore, that much only has to be done, as Dhan Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Maharaj, beautifully tells us to do:

ਹੁਕਮਿ ਰਜਾਈ ਚਲਣਾ ਨਾਨਕ ਲਿਖਿਆ ਨਾਲਿ ॥੧॥

Hukam Rajaaee Chalanaa Naanak Likhiaa Naal |

O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way of His Will.

So, what is His Hukum?

It is, as He says in the Mool Mantra:  Gurparsad, Jap.

This is Sikhee in essence.

We must bear in mind, Guru Jee´s teachings are mainly meant for the jeev atma, the soul, in order to live a virtuos and a pure life, become mindless, and become one with Him, with His Kirpa, by doing His jap.

In Raag Maroo First Patshahee tells us also:

ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਬੋਹਿਥੁ ਆਦਿ ਜੁਗਾਦੀ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮਿ ਨਿਸਤਾਰਾ ਹੇ ॥੮॥

Sathigur Bohithh Aadh Jugaadhee Raam Naam Nisathaaraa Hae ||8||

From the very beginning of time, and throughout the ages, the True Guru has been the boat; through the Lord's Name, He carries us across. ||8||

So, if His Hukum for ferrying jeevas has not changed since Aad Jugad, what makes us think, that whether past, present, or future generations will need something else.

If we are under manmat, then we may look for variety, but if we are up to His Hukum, through Gurmat, then there is no need for anything else, for Guru Jee´s wisdom, is beyond the parametres of time and space.

Sat Sree Akal.

Yes veerji that's what I'm talking about, Sikhi is about implementing it in our lives, not just believing in it. We have to make our Sikhi strong and help others in their Sikhi.

    • Exactly. To be proud of one's language we should strive to speak words from our own language. Rabb is a commonly heard word in our community, but many do not know that it is Arabic. We can use indigineous words such as Ishwar or Parmatma instead during daily discourse. It's actively trying to bring back words that we used but were forced to extinction in our language because of violent invaders.
    • The question would be are there arab loanwords that can be gotten rid off if we have perfectly good indigenous words we could use instead. For example, should we use sansaar instead of duniya.  What other words could we replace if it is already in our vocabulary. Do some us prefer the back throated sounds of the Arab words because we think it sounds sexy and we can pretend to be some pakhandi Sufi poet? 
    • We would also have a far deeper presence in the Gangetic Plains.  No British, no East India Company, no Purbia /Bihari army with no mutiny.  The last remaining mughals would have been finished off a lot quicker.  Awadh,  Agra,  Lucknow would have fallen into Sikh hands.  There would be a link of Sikhi stretching all the way to Patna. 
    • 19 11 2017 1) What costs more than riches but doesn't cost a penny; that's also hard to find yet easy to lose? 2) How can you make seven even? 3) If you have me, you want to share me. If you share me, you haven't got me. What am I? 4) What is so delicate that saying its name breaks it? 5) am free yet priceless, you can't own me but you can use me, you can't keep me but you can spend me. Once you lost me you can never have me back. What am I?   Well, the answers are : 1) Friend 2) Drop the  S 3) Secret 4) Silence 5)Time
    •   THIS IS EPIC A man was being interviewed for a post of a commando in the Army... Interviewer : we want a person with a suspicious mind,  always alert,  ready to attack, acute sense of hearing, detective ability, and most importantly, having a killer instinct ! So do you think you are eligible ? Man: Sir ....  can my wife apply ?     Made for each other.. Relationship is easy,
      when spouses know each other Here are 2 classic  examples: 1) A husband comes home after attending a club meeting.
      He tells his wife,“Dear there was a drinking competition after meeting today.” His wife spontaneously...,
         “Who got the second position?” 2) A wife tells her husband,
      “Dear there was a letter for you.
      It’s written on the envelope,
      ‘Private and confidential.’” The husband casually asks,
           “What was written inside?" Great understanding of each other.
