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:

    • This exact question is in Asa Ki //...haumai kitho upjeh, kit sanjam eh jayee 
    •       Do you do Simran or Mool Mantar?    Don’t worry about this. As children we have all sorts of dreams which when we are younger have more of an impact on us remembering them. Because that was probably the first odd or chilling dream you had, so you remember it more. You have to stop being afraid of this, as I’m guessing you work yourself up and get anxious every year before that date. Even if you try not to, it still comes up as it’s been embedded for a long time. Tell your counsellor about this, he/she will help you to deal with the negativity of it that it has created.  You are going through a stressful time, but from what you are saying, he is not living with you. You need to make yourself strong internally and stand up to what he’s done. You need to think about yourself and your daughter and what’s best for you both, as he’s already left. Your in laws are probably feeling ashamed for their spoilt son? They do not have to compromise with his bad behaviour and how he’s treated you and your daughter.  I’m not sure what else to advise, as you are in this terrible situation, and only you know what you are going through, but I do hope things get better for you. Maybe contact one of the Sikh helplines?   
    • does it involve avoiding silver like the plague ?

      Bhenji, We are not responsible for other's actions. Your husband has indeed done misdeed, but the past is in the past. He himself will face the consequences. Whatever happens, good or bad, always comes back. Instead of swearing in your mind at him, focus on what exactly you want. What do you want, would you like him to come back to you? To change his ways? To find peace within yourself? There is no reason to blame him, the more we blame someone, the more nothing gets resolved. Our reactions determine whether we feel pain, not because of the actual individual or event. I believe you don't necessarily have to stop "swearing" at him in your mind, but to redirect your thoughts to another direction in your subconscious mind. It's important to accept and love yourself first. I would redirect your thoughts in your mind to "I accept myself, the past is in the past, and I decide to let this go of my mind". Redirect your thoughts to thoughts of peace, joy, and wonderful memories you have had. If you change the way you look at things, things you look at will change. So, keep doing your paath, give your love to your daughter, and focus on improving yourself. All this talk about kismat and dreams is fine, but we have no control over that. All of us only have control of current situations now. Remember, accept yourself, always strive improve to yourself and just......let it go.
