Well this is where im confused tableji..
I dont beleive to be a sikh you have to be an amrit dhari..
Maybe im wrong..but i find it hard to beleive that amrit gives "salvation"..i find it hard to beleive that the same guru who abolished the whole idea of there being a priestly caste, would say to reach god you have to go through the panj pyarai..that sounds really bad i know, and i hope i dont cause anyone offence..but hey, i gotta ask these question or i'll never learn..
Also, where does that leave the likes of banda singh bahader? Or indeed the bhagats who contributed to the guru granth sahib? Were they amrit dhari? If they werent elightened beings, then why do we bow to them? Cant the same truth which pervaded their hearts and minds exist in the khalsa, and vice versa? Doesnt that then void the need for amrit..? Ok im going off topic (the point of this paragraph was to just emphasize that one can reach spiritual heights without being khalsa.)
Also, when guru gobind singh ji compiled the guru granth sahib (or made baba deep singh write four copies i think it was) why then didnt guru ji in gurbani explicitly state that the gurus sikh has to take amrit..? the only hukkamnama i can remember which defines a gursikh is "he who calls himself a sikh of the guru, should rise at the ambrosial hours and contemplate on gods name"..
At the end of the day, what narsingha said is true..im going to justify my actions by asking these questions..and ur going to refute them because u dont want destabilise what u beleive in..so try and be nice
