Recommended Posts

Have you considered teaming up with other organisations? What you're planning sounds a lot like Baru Sahib?

There are many Gurdwara's where they let kids/sewadars stay and learn/teach Sikhi stuff.

I'd firstly try and get a social media account and follow people who are have a good amount of followers so they can help donate for your project.

I highly suggest you plan what you do with sangats money. If the plan fails then you need a plan where you can donate it to a right cause or restart.

Thanks for comments SANGH and Monatosingh,

Our model is a bit different (its supposed to be very personal) - its like worldvision's one on one sponsorship where  you write to the kid(s) you sponsor and talk to him/her over skype etc, so your money is not ending up in a pool with no traceability. 

I am personally financially independent so will ensure if the project does not succeed , it goes to some organization like SOPW .

I like the sound of that. I made a similar suggestion to a sikh charity I was involved in... Unfortunately for unknown reasons, the directors didn't think it was viable :/

Veer, isn't that similar to the Educate Panjab Project?

What about building local akhare or gyms so kids can learn to practice the Miri aspect of Sikhi? It would empower them through confidence and help preserve some of our dying historical arts e.g. pehlwani.

Balance is important so it could run in collaboration with current organsations who already provide education and the Piri side of Sikhi for a greater all-round one - some nihangs/former wrestlers might even be happy to give their time and see the youth doing what they once did. It could be like the final leg in a tripod.

Anyway, just an idea and don't know how feasible it is.

    • Anyone new to this forum might think it was a place to discuss rear pleasures or excretions. Try and display some control of your fetishes.   MODS need to update their banned word filters or at fhe very least warn repeated gutter posters who just have it in each for other.  All for free speech but this thread has warped into something vindictive.

      Err no......that's not a fact. That's your sensationalist factually incorrect anal hyperbole again! You really do need to visit a colo-rectal specialist with some urgency to find out why so much tutee is coming out of your mouth.  The full list of non signatories is here. See what I did there? Showed evidence of a fact. Not empty my anus on a forum for no reason, unlike you.
    • https://medium.com/incerto/the-most-intolerant-wins-the-dictatorship-of-the-small-minority-3f1f83ce4e15 Interesting article from Nassim Nicholas Taleb regarding how halal has got it's way in the UK. It is quite long though. 
    • Jus Reign is technically correct in his argiement that Sikhi isn’t a religion, however I don’t think he thought about this on a deeper level, and just made an edgy statement that happens to be true once examined on a deeper level.  Guru Nanak Dev Ji never intended to start a “religion”. Sikhi isn’t a “religion” it’s the Sach Dharam. This modern day “Sikhism” most people follow is an Abrahamic knockoff created by the Singh Sabah era with the help of the British, which takes away Sikhi’s universalist Dharmic framework, and replaces it with this abomination calles Sikhism.  Jus Reigns statement also comes from a place of duality. For any educated Sikh, it’s obvious that Guru Nanak never “left” us, and Guru Gobind Singh Ji is just the same as Guru Nanak, who is just the same as Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The Guru is the Bani, the Bani is the Guru, and within it all the Amrit is contained.  As for his comment about rocking the Turban and doing whatever HE wants, from a Sikh point of view his completely wrong. The entire point of being a Sikh is to recognize your own defincies and realize you cannot achieve anything by yourself, this is why you dedicate yourself to an enlightener (Guru) and follow his teachings. Bani time and time again tells us to destroy this false sense of self (ego) and recognize the One. Sikhi isn’t about following yourself, it’s about following the One Guru.  When a Sikh, especially a “Singh” (Man who has received Khand Di Phaul) as Jus Reign claims to be, wears a Dastaar (Turban) then they are representing the Khalsa and the Gurus Saroop. Of course there are things you cannot do, like smoking, drinking (He drinks), or other immoralities because reflects back on the Khalsa. When you go out and do something retarded it reflects bad on that real Singh who keeps the 5K’s, who gets up at Amritvela, who follows Rehat, etc. The fact is that in the modern day, especially for someone who uses the Khalsa title of “Singh”, wearing the Dastaar is not a joke. It’s either you follow the Rehat and maintain proper conduct in the world, or take off the Dastaar, and remove Singh from your name (which you didn’t earn in the first place).
