Should I have to take amrit again

Recommended Posts

I'd suggest to take amrit where they will give you the official rehat for every single amritdhari.

The maryada is flexible for everyone.

The Khalsa panth itself decided to have it as official.

 

If you are unable to find any amrit sanchar who gives the official rehat maryada you can take it from anywhere (not missionaries) and then you are always free to follow the Akal Takth maryada because it's minimum and every amritdhari should have it as minimum. You have a choice to follow the recommended (what you are told at the sanchar) or the minimum.

 

If you want to look further into the maryada - http://old.sgpc.net/CDN/Sikh_Rehat_Maryada_English.pdf

It's kind of sad that they attempted to create a new maryada and we accepted it but most of us still don't have the ekta.

 

Amrit is the same guys!

If you take amrit and receive Akal Takth maryada then you are free to follow any other jatha maryada you wish!

For example, if you follow the minimum akal takth maryada you can then follow nihang or taksal maryada!

It works for everyone.

just adding to the discussion, I don't think "jathebandis" or "jathas" keep the warrior rehit that is required for an amritdhari to be done as daily as nitnem is. I am talking about rehit from Guru Gobind Singh and not any babas or "jathe"dars. Nihang Singhs of Buddha Dal and Tarna Dal still keep that side of the rehit with bana and shastar, keeping and riding horses etc etc. Need both sides of rehit to be a Singh otherwise without is just sehajdhari.

Khalsa itself is soldier and sant.

Taksal is more sant based right? Many sants I know are from DDT.

However, a Khalsa is sant-sipahi.

Nihangs are more of the warrior type right? 

Again, a Khalsa is sant-sipahi.

I asked my mom and my dad and they both said yes. But they said that I can only take it when I am in my late teens. Which is too long to wait. I feel thirsty for amrit. My dad said that he wouldn't let me take amrit in a normal, local gurdwara but he said that I should take amrit at Sri Hemkunt Sahib. This may not sound like an issue but how can I wait that long??? I feel thirsty for it, I need it now. Of course even I want to take amrit at Sri Hemkunt Sahib but its too long. I have like 4-5 years to wait.

This is what I mean.. that’s why I’m confused between Taksal and budha dal.

Phenji, Budha Dal lifestyle is a difficult lifestyle. I'm not trying to put you off or anything but their minimum Rehat isn't easy.

Taksal isn't easy either although it's more balanced for lack of a better word. They are sort of equally Sant-Sipahi. Nihangs are more focused on the Sipahi side but they are no less Sant than Taksal. Just depends on what sort of lifestyle you want to pursue. Read about the different Sampardas and what their roles have been throughout history to help you make your choice.

Best way to put it is Taksal is sort of a cross between Nirmala and Nihang.

If all that makes sense. Hope it helps.

I think taksal is very sant based.

 

However I think Nihang dals do balance both aspects, they do both bani and bana, not just bana.

Why Hemkunt Sahib? I can understand if they said Hajoor Sahib as it is close to puraatan rehit. But Hemkunt Sahib was created sometime after Guru jis, and doesn't have any association with sampradaiye.

Just posting a link. I would look at Buddha Dal and Tarna Dal rehits. Rehits can differ depending on what the function of the dal is within Khalsa Fauj. Nihang rehit cannot be done justice just by being written, it is practical as well, the kshatriya/warrior maryada part has to be done practically. Also Nihangs will refer to rehitnamas such as Bhai Chaupa Singh and Bhai Nand Lal. Theer is also Suraj Prakash.

Here is a link to a previous topic about Nihang rehit:

    • Its fine just to maan the rass. At the end of ur naam.abhiyaas session just say shukria for the rass to waheguru and do beanti to keep u in his charan.  Also if the burning/garam feeling gets too much. Start doing sukhmani sahib or at least 1 astpadhi of it then go back to.simran
    • in my humble opinion, I believe, this situation takes place,  when a sikh/disciple/Gurmukh, talks about, or refers,  to Guru Sahiban, who are Wahiguru Akal Purukh in human form. Just as a successor Guru talks/refers/ to, about His predecessor, for example Guru Angad Dev about Sree Guru Nanak Dev, or Sree Guru Arjun Dev, about  Sree Guru  Ram Das Maharaj... Sat Sree Akal.
    • I have a question about the Shabad referring to God as, " Your eyes are so beautiful, and Your teeth are delightful. Your nose is so graceful, and Your hair is so long." If God is formless, then why are these characteristics being referenced? Pardon me for my ignorance.
    • Yes, all 4 of these. Probably #1 the first one. In Punjab people who have a determination to be the "headman" become, variously, panch, sarpanch, councilman, mayor, MLA, MP, etc. In the West, that's often not possible, so they fight like dogs to become Gurdwara president. When you're Gurdwara president, it's more like you're president of the entire community. To prevent that, I think we should encourage organizations like the North American Punjabi Association and City Sikhs and so on.  People who have a leadership bug can go and become the local presidents of those types of associations, and be the "president of the community", meanwhile those who want to do seva can be in the Gurdwara committee.
