  1. You are not sikh by just keeping long hair or beards. You Sikh if you follow Gurbani. I'll again reiterate that there is no reference to Kepping Hairs or Beards in SGGS. You just make some one NON-SIKH because he doesn't support hairs as there are more than 80% Sikhs those who don't support all 5 K's. To remind you that only 20% of Sikhs are AmritDhari and you consider that as minority.
  2. Hey, it is not an issue at all. Marriage between Hindu and Sikh is seamless. If you look at Sikh famillies in India, 30% of them are mixed with Hindus. In any case Religion should not come to picture during a marriage. Marriage is a bond between Souls and not bodies. Religion is man made. When a child is born he/she is not born as Sikh, Hindu, Muslim or any other religion but he/she gets his religion from the family in which he is born. So that means religion needs to be praticed by human in the family they belong. Two humans from different families will have different religion and that should not interfere with the marriage as it is between two human souls.
  3. That is jumping to conclusion without any sound reasoning. I don't need to prove to you what I am. But I certainly not dumb like you. I just try to find my own path. I think I'm lost as till I was child I didn't have means to know or read about Guru's except what I was taught by my parents or from Gurudwara. After practicing blindly I now realize why I'm doing what I'm doing and trying to find answers to my curiosities. I've seen everyone I talked to in person or on computer has always shown this concern. Why cann't I get straight answers instead of blind statements. If I'm not a Sikh then it doesn't make any sense to be looking for answers to all these because then I won't care. I'm looking for these answers so that I can satisfy myself. I don't wear Pugg or keep beard as I'm unable to find any support for these in the Gurbani. But I won't be able to convince my family in India so trying to look for answers. But the more I look the more I feel that there is no relevance to these in the Gurbani. If you can help find some answers well and Good otherwise I'll be the lone searcher
  4. I don't know what will happen if this situation arise with me but it seems that it happened to you recently, so your were able to narrate so seamlessly. Just to mention that I keep a licensed 'Bersa Thunder .380 ACP' and may be able to use it if need be. But before you were able to swing your Unlicensed 6" Kirpan, you might be left for your hell abode.
  5. No Taker yet??? Then at least help by letting me know if there are any rules while reading the Online swaroop of SGGS. 1. Do we need to take shoes off. 2. Do we need to put something on the head if pugg is not worn. 3. Is Sitting on the chair allowed while reading. Or let us poll whether or not the Online SGGS is considered a Swaroop of SGGS.
  6. I've a random number generator that gives me a page number between 1 and 1430. Now every morning at my work, I generate a random number and read the first Slok of that page online. Does this constitute Prakash similar to one on your home SGGS? Since I may or maynot take the evening Valk (slok) by the similar random number path, Does this constitute that Sukhason has not been performed on my online SGGS? So my online swaroop of SGGS doesn't reitre for the day. Is it ok?
  7. That's why I think it didn't make it to the SGGS. It bring me close one more step that Philosphy of Sikhism changed mid way. If what you have put here is correct then I think this is not part of Sikhism. Sikhism don't advocate discrimination. By saying or rather ordering not to marry your daughter to a non-Sikh is discrimination and I think we should all speak against it.
  8. Where this Hukum is coming from??? Don't just make up your Hukum's or distort Sikhism. Sikhism no way prevent any of the community member to marry anyone outside the SIKH community. You don't have to give up Sikhism to marry a non-Sikh similarly a non-Sikh won't have to become Sikh to marry a Sikh.
  9. Why not?? and Why you need to convert? In any marriage One partner doesn't need to be convert to other partners religion. You are marrying the person not the religion. If during the course of the marriage you feel like becoming Sikh then you go ahead do so. But if there are conditions in the marriage for one to convert to another spouse religion then that marriage won't succeed. All the best to you and your would be!!!
  10. Also Missed another point: How many time do you fall for a Burka Girl??? So it is same with a Boy with Turban??? The notion here is that a Boy with Turban and Beard convey 'Arthodox'. Until or Unless you are obssessed you won't have these. That will stop anyone. I won't go after a girl supporting Burka or even Salwar Kammeez so Why will a girl go for a Boy with turban and Beard. Admin's Note: You gettin your first warning by making an stupid post which hurt emotions of other members on this site. There are 3 warnings in total. 1st warning is given to you and 2 more to go after that you are banned from this site.
  11. I think it does matter as 'Romance and Pugg' doesn't go hand in hand. Top on it the beared will Kill the passion too. So be practical, As The saying goes and a song 'Girls just wana have fun'. So how can they have fun with a Pugg and Beard. It does kill it. My personal experience that if a girl is looking for fun then she will rule out a Pugg and Beard but may be if she is looking for a LTR she may consider one. But then it means that most people with Pugg and Beard will get a Second Hand Girl than a First Hand One.
  12. I think you forgot the next line: chupai chup na hova-ee jay laa-ay rahaa liv taar. By remaining silent, peace cannot be obtained because if you are restless you should ask questions and should not keep silent.
  13. Thanx g-singh: It now does make some sense. I'll now try to decipher the meaning in light of this knowledge that the idea here is to depict all the Raags in which the whole Gurbani has been compiled. I think it is very appropriate of the Guruji to present the details of the Raags in Raag Maala.
  14. Why are we 'Sikhs' are so vulnerable to criticisim? I've no intention of finding faults, instead I'm trying to learn. Previously I used to recite only, without actually learning to know what everything means. Now I try to learn what it all means and how I can make use of it. Since when you try go deep into something you can start spotting the litlle things that pop up as question from curiosity and from the urge to understand the details. So the goal here is to grasp more by knowing more. Motto: Knowledge is Power otherwise I would have remain 15 year old reciting the prayers without ever trying to find the meaning of the word I used to say.
  15. Ignorant about the debate but here what I was looking for: "When I read Raag Maala, I don't get connected to it. My curiosity is whether or not it was there to begin with, Does it belogn there?" "if it does belong there, Can someone convey the significance of it?
