Father of Bhagat Prahlaad Ji did not want his son to be a worshiper. He tried to stop Bhagat Ji to do 'Bhagati'. Prahlaad complained, ""Why do you annoy me, over and over again?"

Prahlaad decided not to leave the way of the Guru, "ik raam na chhoda-o gureh gaar."

Try to be Prahlaad, but remember that your parents are NOT Harnaksh. So: -

kwhy pUq Jgrq hau sMig bwp ] (1200-11, swrMg, mÚ 4)

kaahay poot jhagrat ha-o sang baap.

O son, why do you argue with your father?

It is a sin to argue with the one who fathered you and raised you. ||1||Pause|| (http://www.sikhnet.com/sggs/translation/1200.html).

if u ask me, it isn't about Gurmat, but rather personal relationship ties. don't give up on ur Sikhi, but make sure that u let ur parents know that this is what u want. and if they're really serious bout u either leaving Sikhi or leavin the house, i suggest that u leave the house.

actually.. the panj piayaaray might as well be Guru. They are representatives of Gur Gobind Singh Ji's Roop, his power, his kindness, his love, his everything... those are 5 Singhs who represent the 5 that Guru Gobind Singh Ji made his pyaaraas..

Hmm... Got the point. One thing is clear that motive of your parents is not that "bad" as it sounded previously. Its very natural for parents.. because they care for you, atleast your wordly interest.

No doubt, the situation is pretty complex. because none is wrong. If their arguments are valid, you have all the right to choose the way you want to live the life.

Since your parents won't be reading this post, so i will write here what i would like to tell you. But, for sure, these are my individual thougts, it is correct according tome but may not be the same for others.. its just depands what approach do you have towards life. I am no one to tell/teach you whats right or wrong for you.. i am just putting my feelings into words..

First thing, Why did you choose this way? why do you think that this is the only way you can get close to the god/gurus? I agree, this is one way.. but my question is is that the only way?

As such, generally, Parents are not less than the god. They have given birth to u, they have suffered so much pain in bring up and making u what are u today. You owe them more than you owe to anybody. you should think many times and should use both mind and heart before breaking their hearts. Best bet is when you can convience them that whatever u r doing is for the good for you ( note that u need not to convience them for their welfare, u need to convience them that its for the good for urself, they are ur parents)

.and i have told them it's reyat..punj pyare told us to do so..their question..who are they to say they are not guru ..they are common person..

They are religiously highly respected persons.. Its difficult/impossible to comapre a person with Guru jis.

tying turban..who gonna mary u..

caring about you.. you may reject this but they are ur parents. They understand, at least, the world, better than you. Its their worry about you.. its their love.

this and that u know..don't sit with us..don't touch food when someone is drinking this that..so they are started to ingore me and tokna in everything..cuz they say that they got tired..of me..not changing into their world..and they say that people who told u to tie turban they are doing bad thing like cult..it's not important to wear turban..they say to do paat two times a day..that's it..according to them..doing paat two times isn't leaving guru ji..but for me it's not enough..u know..

There are many ways for living the life.. and each path have its pros and cons. There are others on this board who are capable in explaining the more religious way and its pros. for me, i would say, if i go to gurudware for one hour in a week, i get enough inspiration/peace/energy/happiness. and for the rest of the week, i will live the wordly life... because, i feel, i have been sent here, by god, to live the life.. if i help poorer, unables, if i don't make others life miserable,difficult,painful .. its equivalent to any seva... its equivalent to any many hours of prayers.. if i can serve my parents, make them happy, if i can add smiles to someones life.. if i can comfert others, if i can help them enjoy this journey of life ..its , for me, almost equal to "amrit-chekna"...

Call is yours, You are not wrong .. neither ur parents. None can decide and tell you what's wrong and whats right. If you are really serious and dedicated , you should go ahead but try to convience ur parents as much as possible. But, think many times, its life, time never comes back.. ur decision not only affects ur life but also of others who are related to you.. God is with everybody, we all are god's child.. he/her( god) treats everybody equally..

Its ypur life, Whatever u decide, I wish you all the best. and with one last sentence, Parents are not less than the God, we owe them our lives.

Bhool-chuk maaf! Hope i didn't say more than my limits.. if i did, i m sorry.. i didn't mean to perturb anybody.

Thanks...

Best Wishes,

Sardu!
