  1. I agree. It's not hard to register a username.
  2. the general rule of this forum is that you must register to post on controversial topics. some mods still allow guest posts through but i guess it's possible some mod choose to actually enforce the rule. register and you'll find this forum one of the most tolerant for free speech.
  3. Great post. When I go to the Gurdwara I focus on the relationship between Maharaj and me. I don't worry about the mistakes or wrongs that other people are doing, that is between Maharaj and them. Obviously we are talking within reason here, not saying to ignore very serious things.
  4. maybe.... depends a lot on your karam which is why it is not open to everyone. few are able to completely surrender to achieve it.
  5. true nature of human being is the soul. As this is the true nature of someone, whether male or female, then either can realize enlightenment to such a degree that they can become a bhramgyani b/c that is their real nature. This realization comes about through numerous janams of paying off debt and eventually realizing the Grace of Guru ji.... or through complete and total surrender (also a kind of grace). Complete surrender can theoretically happen to anyone.
  6. look up dr. sculze kidney cleanse and (for gallstones) liver cleanse. He has a lot of q and a on his site. malic acid dissolves stones. https://www.herbdoc.com I also recommend http://earthclinic.com for a closer look at natural treatments.
  7. Baba Mohinder Partap Singh ji may fit the bill. He is a mastana mahapursh residing at Guru Nanak Ashram in Patiala. I think few people know about him outside of his area.
  8. hmm.... leading them like you would an obstinate child using simple logic and lots of real life examples would probably help some of them. Rest are nastiks unfortunately.
  9. http://khojee.blogspot.ca/2008/05/truth-about-canadian-singh-sabha-and.html They used to have a video on youtube openly calling puratan sants like Sant Isher Singh ji, Baba Nand Singh ji etc, dehdari pakhandi gurus. They openly said that, tried to point out various ''flaws'' etc. I think they've taken it down. Now their youtube channel seems to focus on tackling the damdami taksal, probably b/c DDT did a lot of Gurmat prachar and were popular post-84.
  10. They don't believe in the very basic teaching of Sikhi - Naam Simran. They call it useless. Gurbani emphasises it more than anything.
  11. singh sabha canada is a group that tries to use the good name of the singh sabha movement to spread their missionary prachar. It's basically hardcore anti-gurmat prachar. Most gurdwaras (probably almost all) you find bearing the name Singh Sabha have no relation with them.
  12. Just wanted to add the Gurbani line of one soul in two bodies is frequently used in regards to marriage. This actually refers to the union of the soul of the spiritual seeker with Waheguru and NOT between the husband and wife. The lavan in fact describe different stages in the evolution of the soul as it nears God. Each lavan is a metaphor for the life of the seeker, doing parkarma around Guru ji who is the seeker's center, moving closer to union with each parkarma. The spouse you have in this janam might be a brother or friend or enemy or stranger in another janam. In Sikh dharm the only soulmate is God. So beware of being lead astray by silly romantic notions of 'the one' or 'soulmate'. It's a game of karma and the way to overcome is through dharma.
  13. Some more resources: online English-Punjabi dictionary: http://dic.learnpunjabi.org/Default.aspx Punjabi University resources page: http://www.learnpunjabi.org Shabd Kosh English Punjabi Dictionary: http://www.shabdkosh.com/pa/ Google translate - https://translate.google.ca/?oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&client=tw-ob#auto/pa/Happiness%20lies%2C%20first%20of%20all%2C%20in%20health (I've heard this one is just so so for translations but have little experience so far) Search Gurbani https://www.searchgurbani.com/guru_granth_sahib/ang_by_ang You can mouse over some of the Gurbani words for definitions.
  14. Ji, the paath in the link you mentioned is done extra extra slow for students to be able to understand the subtle pronounciation sounds. When doing paath normally you would not enunciate those sounds so much. Ordinarily they are very subtle and untrained paathi's do not pick up on them. Here is link to a site where you can see Gurbani, english, transliteration, and have the recording. You can change settings from preferences up top https://www.searchgurbani.com/guru_granth_sahib/ang_by_ang
  15. Saints of different dharms including Sikh dharm consider it to be a huge paap. So the answer is no. People who answer yes are thinking with their sense-pleasure seeking mind rather than any spiritual understanding or desire for knowing truth.
  16. My suggestion would be to go to a Gurdwara (Sikh temple) to get closer to God and not to socialize, although there is nothing wrong with some socialising here and there. There will be people there who are at all different points on their journey to God, and rather than looking at them and feeling disheartened I prefer to focus on the kirtan (spiritual music) and katha (discourses) etc. That way, even if people there happen to be lackadaisical in their attitudes, you can still gain benefit. Where do you happen to live?
  17. You can find arths of Sukhmani Sahib, Gareebi Shabads, and Slok Bhagat Kabir ji and Bhagat Farid ji on www.gursevak.com. IF you click on Gurbani Meanings near the bottom right of the homepage you can view arth shabad by shabad right in your screen. I find it to be a novel and useful way to explore arth in bite-size pieces.
  18. If you want to know who is funding ISIS then simply look at which states are gaining by the actions of ISIS? Notice it never attacks Israel or Saudi Arabia but instead attacks their enemies for dominance in the region? Notice that all the countries attacked are the SAME countries that a US general had said would be destroyed a few years ago? “We’re going to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran..” Video Interview with General Wesley Clark http://www.globalresearch.ca/we-re-going-to-take-out-7-countries-in-5-years-iraq-syria-lebanon-libya-somalia-sudan-iran/5166 To gain a better understanding of international politics I recommend following a news aggregator website like www.rense.com that includes many non-western sources. Also, Putin's speeches and comments are frequently eye-opening.
  19. Vatta, Pitta, Kapha. I don't know if that's the Punjabi words or if there even are Punjabi versions, but these are the words I've most commonly seen on ayurveda websites.
  20. Coffee / tea increase acidity which agitates the sensitive nerves and naturally pulls the surti down there. They also make the body more garam which increases chance of nightfall.
  21. can you share the part about the tenth door that i see at the bottom of the pic?
  22. When I was younger I was very serious about making progress quickly and read a lot from yogis and various other sources. Looking back, I do think all this reading caused more distress to the mind and didn’t help much. Best advice, from experience is: Food is super important reduce the amount of garam (in the ayurvedic sense) foods. Don’t completely avoid it, some is good, but just reduce it. tarka, onion, and garlic increase kaam a lot salty or sugary foods and fried foods and tea and coffee also increase kaam eating from the hands of a kaami person, which means almost everyone worldly makes kaam worse ⁃ a soothing diet involves lots of raw and cooked fruits and veggies. especially raw foods don’t aggravate kaaam besides what goes into your mouth be careful of what goes into your eyes and ears to feed your brain. TV is quite dangerous. Your sangats energy affects you as well. Do lots of sangat with naam Bani WORK OUT. use up all your excess energy each day. this can’t be overstated how important this is. Keep your mind busy. Focus a lot on school or work In the end, if you are at that age you will experience some kaam. It’s normal and it’s better to just accept it in stride. Very few people can do the 13 or so hours of simran a day needed to rise above it. The intensity of it will decrease as you age and as your avastha increases. Nightfall will decrease slowly over time if you are healthy (if not see an ayurvedic or homeopathic doctor for help). Since you used to masturbate your body is used to a certain amount of activity and so is generating fluids appropriate to that. Over time, the amount generated will naturally level off and the frequency of nightfall will decrease as well.
