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
