I believe that you should bring him here and let him share his experience with us. Also, give him an example of Sikh gurus who never had issues with their daily life. I believe that ignoring your life style and family life is not the Sikhism way. Our Gurus were householders like us and had great spirituality level. Sri Guru Granth Sahib is full of Gurbani where Bhagats and Gurus are trying to convey message that you can achieve any level of spirituality while living within your society.

Shabad from Ramanand in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib

Where should I go?

My home is filled with bliss.

My consciousness does not go out wandering.

My mind has become crippled. || 1 || Pause ||

One day, a desire welled up in my mind.

I ground up sandalwood, along with several fragrant oils.

I went to God’s place, and worshipped Him there.

That God showed me the Guru, within my own mind. || 1 ||

Wherever I go, I find water and stones.

You are totally pervading and permeating in all.

I have searched through all the Vedas and the Puraanas.

I would go there, only if the Lord were not here. || 2 ||

I am a sacrifice to You, O my True Guru.

You have cut through all my confusion and doubt.

Raamanand’s Lord and Master is the All-pervading Lord God.

The Word of the Guru’s Shabad eradicates the karma of millions of past actions. || 3 || 1 ||(SGGS, 1195)

intersting points........what happened that initiated such a dramatic change??

guru ji always instigated a 'ghristi jeeva' i.e. worldy duties as in a family etc along side bhagti....it might be an idea to get his some katha tapes/CD/kirtan with this message in it as he has opened up to bani so much it is more likely to strike a chord than us mere mortals.

Let him just be.

Don’t ask him to do anything, for a while at least. If he is really doing what you say, then God will show him what he needs to do.

If he wants to just remain in bhagati all day, let him do that. Don’t start giving him lectures on living in the “real world†just yet.

This is a special time in his journey.

Not sure if you’re from the UK, but if you are from anywhere close to Vancouver, I can get you in touch with some Singhs.

p.s. don’t tell him to come on these forums just yet. He has more important things to do.
