  1. So according to the puratan maryada a garvi or kumbh is kept with jal (water) during a paat and at the bhog you are to both drink and sprinkle (chirkaa) in the home. Does any of you know how the "chirkaa of the jal is done in the home - is there a certain way to do this. I heard once that you should go from the back towards front door of home. Any thoughts or ideas or experiences?
  2. Sangat Ji, So as far as I have been able to fing out about making degh: Flour, Sugar and Ghee should be in equal quantities and water 4 times the amount. So 1 bowl each of flour, sugar and ghee and water would be 4 bowls. I am using Sher Atta (used for making rotis), unsalted butter and sugar (the regular kind as used in tea, etc). I do find find however that the quantities do not mix properly - the 4 times water amounts makes the degh to "slushy" and it does not become 1 mass. Also the flour compared to ghee also seems off. Ghee ends up being not enugh, so when t
  3. As Gursikhs trying to develop on the Gursikh path how much rajneeti knowledge does one need to gsin or pay attention to? Is the idea to first develop spirtually and ignore other things until you attain a certain "stage"? I need some clarification.....The idea of mingling/developing/standing up for panthic things for example leads you to play the politcs game which is a dirty game and then this takes you away from the stillness of Gurbani and everything seems to be a game.....I just don't see how both things can happen at once as they seem to be contradicting each other........
  4. Some discussion on balancing life: Gurbani talks about every single relationship being based on each person or entity needing one another and once that need is fullfiled/stops the relationship ends i.e all relations are false and temporary - which leads to the question why engage in any relationships then (whether it be marriage, work, friends, family, etc)?......at the same time it is my understanding that as Sikhs we don't have to shun the world and can live a householders life, in which case you need money and need to build your own relations and mini empires..........so then how do we
  5. But does Gurmat beleive in the 7 hells and heavens concept they are talking about. I do agree there is lots of great info and motivation. I haven't been able to find any info on the "7" concept in Sikhi.
  6. I have been reading the alot of the stuff on the website. It seems to be based on the Shaasters and Puraan's type of anology or maybe I have missed the boat. I can see the logic behind alot of what they are talking about and it does make sense. I just wanted to know what is the Gurbani perspective on this? The site talks about things that effect you: Destiny, your ancestors, ghosts, etc - I can see from a logical perspective how these would effect a person. But what is the take from Gurbani on this?
  7. Do you sell zulu pins with khanda's on them? I couldn't find them on your site...........
  8. It's not in Dukh Bhanjani Sahib.......there is a specific story related to this in our history of someone who I think were on eof the Bhat (could be the wrong person) who had a skin problem or who didn't obey what Guru told him and they got a bad skin problem - from this Guru jee either recited that bani for the first time or it was recited by that gursikh and the bani was then entered in to GGS.....I just can'r remember the bani name
  9. There is a popular Bani that is said to cure skin ailments. Does anyone know the bani name?
  10. Our present day gurdwaras are not really gurdwara's, they are living in the past. Our langers are not really langers, we are basically only feeding a select community, and not worried about humanity. If chinese, blacks, goras started coming to the gurdwara langers, they would be eventually kicked out by our pendu pardhans........
  11. Mr. Suryadev -I also am starting to feel the same way. Is the Guru really nudging you back or is it something that is already deeply pre-planted in your mind and you couldn't find another way to explain your hardship other than you loosing faith. Deep down sub consciensly maybe you yourself are bothered by your own actions. Really, you will never know what would've happened if you had kept your faith over those years. It is all speculation.
  12. Whatever you do don' t read it and fart in the direction of a gas stove or propane tank, all the anger will be chanelled and you will cause immense damage to society...........all laughing aside I have noticed the same about chandi di vaar. The "sikh" tuna removers in India recite this bani if they feel you are in real trouble, it is the "super package" last resort tunaa removal method with a havan on the side and various dolls that they push pins into. I attended on of these, very interesting. Also in "Se Kinehiyaa" it is also written that if done after sunset that you should light a jot
  13. I have been thinkingi s kes and baana really all that needed for regular householders? Wasn't the idea to have a distinct look and do great things - which is what really the Khalsa did, they worked for Sarbat Da Bhalla. Aren't we as regular householders the same as any old person with the same desires and wants and running after the same things and the same probleme in our homes - but we have a pug on. I wonder sometimes if we are just holding on to this Bana thing and have made it everything and have lost the essence of being good human beings. We put up with being different w
  14. Gazab is baat kee hai kai voh vakhat guzar chukaa voh mard pad chuka hai voh din fanah ho chukaa hai par tum nai is ko zinda kar chukaa hai......vakht kai saat mard bhe badaltai hai par asool vohee achaa vohee zindaa hai jo mard ko mard mai pyaar faylata hai.....arzz hai kai judaa hum kuch bhe nahi, judaa hum kuch bhee nahi, saath ham sabh kuch hai sabh kuch chukaa saktai hain...
  15. Dear Brothers, Pls help me out I find myself in the situation that I may be laid-off at work. Now I have lots of responsibities financially and will loose everything if I get laid-off and the prospects of new work are really not that good. I had also been laid off many years ago and it lead to about 5 years of really bad times, and we have just now re-built ourselves only to have the same situation back. I find myself in this situation doubting God as the helper and the "completer" of our tasks (Karaj). So many questions arise in my mind as to why this keeps happening in life. Goin
