  1. My question is though, what difference does it make? does it make me a better Sikh or for that matter a better person?
  2. What difference does it make though? If you were to live a life where you worked to better humanity, lived an honest and decent life, led a spiritual life, what difference then would amrit make? Is it a neccesity in this life?
  3. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! The Gurus were against performing miracles. As all this did was increase a person's ego. None of the Guru's ever performed miracles. You have to remeber that the Janam Sakhis are not real events. They are not fact at all. They have meaning to them, but to believe them as they are would be foolish on our part. The only thing which is true is the Guru Granth Sahib. The Bhai Bala Janam sakhis are the ones which mention miracles, but these are not accepted anymore. These were in fact written by a sect called the hindalis who did it for their own
  4. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!. The Radhasoamis often talk about meditation. When they are iniated they are given a word to meditate on. According to them the word given to them by their Guru has a certain sound current. Does anyone know what the sound current is? Apparently, there is a reference to it on the Sri Guru Granth Sahib. I've never heard of it.
  5. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! I understand what you are saying, but Guru Dev Ji saw religion as being internal. The rejection of the Janeu was also also because wearing the thread did not constitute a religious act in itself. All the exterior things that people had did not help them in their path. Then how can, the 5 kakkars help us in our path?. Most of us, from when we are born wear a kara and some of us have our kesh. But when we take amrit we take on the rest of the kakkars. But isn't this like a religious act in itself? Isn't this what Guru Nanak Dev Ji tried to furthu
  6. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! This is a question which i have wondered about. Even though i believe in the panj Kakkars and i understand the importance of it, sometimes questioning oneself allows for a stronger faith. Guru Nanak Dev Ji rejected the wearing of the janeu. Most of us know the sakhi. It was for twice born hindus to wear at initation which allowed them to hear and read the scriptures. Guru Nanak Dev Ji disputed the fact that wearing the janeu constitued a religious act. It was a formalistic way to religion. Guru Nanak Dev Ji rejected outward and exterior symb
  7. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! I read a recent post about books on sikhi and people have referred to the Bala Janam Sakhis. From my understanding, the Bala Janam Sakhis were discredited by the Singh Sabha Movement. This is thought is now widely accepted in the sangat. for the reasons as follows: The evidence of Bhai Bala being a companion to Guru Nanak Dev Ji comes only from the Bala Janam Sakhis. He is not heard of in any other Sakhi tradition/cycle. Whereas, we know that Bhai Mardana was with Guru Nanak Dev Ji as he is mentioned in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. The S
  8. I got this email from the Weat Midlands Sikh Society and thought it was pretty amazing Salok Mahala 9 and The Pursuit for Happiness Salok Mahala 9 is one of the final compositions in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, and is one of the most relevant writings to the world we live in today. With well-paid jobs, fast cars, and Eastenders, we could almost be forgiven for thinking that we dont need anybody else-including God. Few will admit to this view, but this is evident from the way we live our lives today. From grabbing an express langar, to the performance of an emergency ardas the da
  9. As far as i understand this, the Gurus only had one wife. There is a misconception thats the Gurus had more than one. This is because, The Gurus wife's name would change after marriage as was the custom then. Books refer to the wives by either name, the maiden one or the married one. This confused most people as they thought the Gurus had more than one wife. If i have misunderstood this, then sorry Btw, is there something special about Gits Rasmalai that we don't know about? :wink:
  10. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Harps Bhaiji, i have to agree with you on Bhai Roop Singh! Went to one of his talks and he was, inspirational! Straight to the point with no namby pambying around certain issues. We attatch ourselves to the punjabi culture, absorb this into sikhi and say, well its all part of being sikh. The heavy drinking, the bhangra, things which have nothing to do with sikhi. On Vaisakhi, you see them running around with flags, beeping thier horns and remembering they are Sikh for a day. Yet, some people you see, have the jhanda in one hand and a fag in the
  11. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Sounds like the back of the Vaisakhi card we recieved from Ramgarhia Gurdwara! However, i do have one thought though. Many people who actually do call themselves Ramgarhia do so in reference to the 'caste', rather than in rememberance of Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgarhia. Most Ramgarhias you ask, would not be able to tell you much about him nor what he did.
