3-4 sevadars sleep in a room that has an oxygen tank. When hemkunt sahib closes for winter they take maharaj saroop back down.

One place I hope to visit is Hemkunt Sahib before I leave this temporary existence. My father's been x2, very fortunate. First time in '81, that was a plane chartered from Heathrow by Singh's. The valley of flowers was simply amazing in the film footage.

You'll see it in the exposé I am getting published in collaboration with the SGPC! It's called:

Which Gurdwara do you have to go to in order to take amrit with the Akaal Takht Maryada?

Probably a SGPC Gurdwara if that's even a thing.

Otherwise you could just take it from anywhere and then follow akal takth maryada afterwards.

Again amrit is amrit.

lol what if the panj pyaray giving pahul aren't good at the rahit and give you a dodgy rehit, ie lack of respect for shastar and dasam bani probably like what sgpc and some "jathas" do all the time? What about if they cut part of Chaupai Sahib, or only read 3 banis?

@ipledgeblue (or anyone else) where do you recommend taking amrit? I will be taking amrit in the next 2 or 3 years maharaj kirpa. I want something to work towards.

Wjkk wjkf,

some sikhs here have mentioned Hajur Sahib and certain gurdwaras in Anandpur Sahib. I would include Buddha Dal and Dals in Tarna Dal such as Harianvela.

I'm going to mention here that I am likely to take pahul from one of these places sometime.

Things I look out for in panj Singhs giving pahul:

They don't just wear dress up bana and actually wear bana regularly. They also respect blue bana and carry blue nishaan sahib; preferable for panj to wear blue and definitely not kesri. I think even Uggardanti mentions blue, I am still trying to understand this bani when I sometimes read this paat for morning nitnem.. Maybe Bhai Nand Lal writings too?

They wear dumalla and not cultural pagh like I do (I need to go gurdwara to learn dumalla, Youtube videos aren't helping me) LOL

They wear kammarkasa and shastars, not a gatra with a small kripaan. They are also likely to ride/have horses (again something Guru Pita said that sikhs should have horses).

And also important, they read dasam bani regularly, and will know a lot of it as well. They won't cut Chaupai Sahib, Rehraas and Aarti Aarta like they cut it in Harimandir Sahib or like SGPC cuts these banis! You really don't want panj piyaray to cut out bits of Chaupai and not read Arril when taking Pahul.

They haven't always been though. Maybe they have become more Sant based in recent times.

Nihangs are like Taksal but they sort of have an extra 20% on the Sipahi side. It's actually really hard to put into words lol.

You're spot on about the practicality.

Despite SGPC being promoted as the standard these days, I would be more inclined to say Taksal is the all rounder.

I don't know how much Mehta Chowk Taksal practise martial side. I thought they learn things like horse riding from the Nihang Singhs. I believe these Taksals were mainly created for bani and santhiya so would mainly be run by Sants and Nirmalas, maybe even Udasis and Nihang Singhs like  Akali Baba Deep Singh in the past. 

I reckon the modern Bhindra Taksal was more Sant like until Baba Gurbhachan Singh brought over some martial rehit from Buddha Dal, of which he was a Nihang Singh before they came to Taksal.

To be fair neither do I lol. I am going by what Taksalis themselves have said to me. You're spot on about Taksals role, I do believe they were more Nirmala-like in the past (try convincing them of that though).

I think you're also correct about Baba Gurbachan Singh, I think he actually took on a more, for lack of a better word, militant, stance to distance himself from the Nirmala/Saadhu image, hence the blue dastaar and Khalsa surname. From my own observations (which could well be off) my perceptions lead me to believe they are all rounders. Many Taksalis in the west and back home do lay quite a bit of emphasis on the martial side, of course nowhere near the same as the Dal though.

Some of it is probably just down to Jathebandi supremacy, considering yourselves as the "true Khalsa"! Lol

    • We complain because we don't have enough Sikhs in politics. When we do have one we still complain because he's not a Mahapurkh. A generalisation that one could make is Sikhs in political power have not always adhered to maryada as strictly as janta. The same is true for many other communities, and just like Jagmeet they know where their loyalties lie - for the qaum. I find it hard to believe that his motives are otherwise. If they were, he would have been at an advantage had he still been a mona rather than an Amritdhari. While there's no doubt that Raajneeti from a Dharmic perspective should always contain elements of righteousness, the means to reaching the primary objective, which I believe in this case to be the betterment of the Sikh Qaum and amassing political influence and power to wield in the international arena, may well be outwardly adharmic. This especially applies at a personal level whereby one may be exempt from certain religious laws to serve the greater good. Executing Ranneeti and Raajneeti simply cannot be held to the standards of Rehat Maryada namely due to the fact that this is Kalyug. As stated in another post we cannot and should not expect the neetikaars to be pious and religious figures. Unless of course we're happy being personae non gratae forever. If it later becomes evident that his motivations, intentions, and loyalties lie elsewhere, by all means tear him down.
    • 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 ?
