Developing 'Mint Grade' Khalsa: From Birth, for a Lifetime

Register to Remove Advertisements
Dear Khalsa Ji,

With ‘The Sat’ willing, today I share with you my views on ‘Developing Mint Grade Khalsas’ based on my studies and learning in my life. What I know, I will share with you all in many small posts.

1. Introduction:

1.1. Definition:

Mint Grade Khalsas’ are those Khalsas who are true to ‘The Sat’, true to the Gurbani, true to the Panth, true to their family, true to the society of the country in which they live, true to the humanity, true to the environment and true to the ecosystem in which we all live.

They are ‘Mint Grade’ because they are pure; their scholarly brilliance in their chosen field makes them shine like gold. They are the role models.

1.2 Opening statements:
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/sikh-youth/1166-developing-mint-grade-khalsa-birth-lifetime.html

(a) Khalsa couples should keep in mind that babies are not accidents resulting from marriage but the intent of marriage. Once the baby comes into the family, the resources of the parents should be channeled for its healthy mental and physical growth.

(b) Ever since the life came into existence on this planet, the mothers have been doing all that they could to feed, shelter and protect their young ones. Though many of our mothers, I will say parents, have crossed this line and evolved further, but still there are some who are still doing the same – science and art of developing capable Khalsas have not been mastered by some of them yet. The only change that has come is that they now use the new products that the technology has provided us to do what parents had been doing from ancient times. Mastering the science and art of developing ‘Mint Grade’ capable Khalsas is what the Panth should concentrate on.

1.3 Our ancestral past:

Some of the memories, tendencies and behaviors of our ancestors is still present in our memory. The evolution of brain from the early days of development of species on this planet has followed a golden rule: ‘do not alter any thing in the brain that works well’. That is why the stem part of our lower brain, which controls respiration, heartbeats and many such essential functions, is very similar to the early animals. The process of our developing into what we are today, evolution has progressively added more and more capabilities to our brain. This it did by adding layers on what was functioning well in the brain. This way of evolution has both good and bad effect in today’s life. The flight or flight response of our brain helps us to take quick decisions to survive, while instinctive emotional response some time creates problems. However by training our brain the way we want it to function we can retain the advantage and get over the problem. This is one of the areas where parents and the family can help the child a lot.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166

1.4 Nature and nurture:

The development and the capabilities of the brain are the result of two factors

(a) Nature: This is what we receive from our parents through their genes. It expresses itself in our mental capabilities and tendencies. However some of the tendencies do not find expression in the absence of the needed environment, in other words, these tendencies can be controlled and even inhibited. For example: if an individual has inherited a gene from its parents, which has the potential to make her or him, addicted to alcohol and if this individual is born in the family which does not drink alcoholic beverages and this individual does not imbibe such drinks then this gene with not find expression. This way the environment can inhibit some of the tendencies that the child inherits from its parents.

(b) Nurture: this is the learning and exposure, which we give to the child, both knowingly and unknowingly. By properly designing the child’s exposure, the parents and the family can help the child’s brain to get formatted in a way that give the child the potential for excellence in the fields which are natural to the child. Nurture can give the child the abilities it needs for vertical thinking, horizontal thinking, parallel thinking, individual and team working, creativity, ability to be focused and maintain concentration for long duration, becoming a self learner and to acquire very high intelligence quotient i.e. IQ and high emotional quotient i.e. EQ to mention few of them.

1.5 The peer group:

The peer group influences the development of the brain when the child joins it. Here the child learn to socialise, new traits start getting formed. It is my considered view that where the child has the option, it will select only those children to play with who have similar Samskaras and complementary traits as this alone can provide the individual to interface well with the group. In other words, the child’s early brain formatting at home alone create the conditions based on which the child selects the peer group. If the child gets into bad company, the parents and the family is responsible for it.

With this, I close the first part of my posts on this topic. In the next post I will discuss the ‘Would be mothers’.

With love and respect for all.

Amarpal.

Developing 'Mint Grade' Khalsas: Part 2: Would be Mothers

Dear Khalsa Ji,

With ‘The Sat’ willing, today I share with you my views on ‘Developing Mint Grade Khalsas’ based on my studies and learning in my life. What I know, I will share with you all in many small posts.

In Part 1, I had shared my on certain general aspects viz.

1. Introduction:
1.1. Definition of Mint Grade Khalsas:
1.2 Opening statements:
1.3 Our ancestral past:
1.4 Nature and nurture:
1.5 The peer group:

In this post I proceed further

2 The would be mothers:

We are all born to women. Women are the chosen ones by ‘The Sat’ to give us this form. Even, Guru Sahib in the very first sentence of Anand Sahib has address to his mother and informed her of his experiencing “The Sat’; this we recite daily during the Paath. This way Guru Sahib conveyed to us his preference.

For my life in human form, according to my thinking, the first comes ‘The Sat’ and second my mother; then my father, family members and others follow them in the order of reverence.

Before I share my learning pertaining to ‘would be mothers’, I pay my respect to our mothers (ladies who have children); all would be mothers (ladies who are in this process) and the potential mothers (all unmarried ladies and girls). I tell you all from the depth of my heart and soul that you all are blessed by ‘The Sat’ you create the future of the Panth, we in the Panth depend on you. You have lots to contribute.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166

To all the members of the Panth I say that if our women are anaemic, the babies born to them will not be as strong as possibly they can be – mentally and physically. Subjugation and discrimination of women is contrary to the teachings of Sikhi; it is not good for Khalsa Panth; it is not good for our future. I am ashamed of the current sex ratio within our Khalsa population.

More the Khalsas take care of their ladies stronger will be the Panth.

With all this said, now I share with you all, my understanding on how the developing fetus gets influenced by the state of being of the would be mother.

2.1 Mental state:

We humans are very emotional beings. The brain, through hormones, controls emotional responses. Presence of hormones influences the functioning and development of many systems operating within human body. We all know the fetus draws nourishment for its growth from the blood in which the hormones are. These hormones influence the developing fetus too.

The ‘would be mother’, for this reason, should always remain in normal and happy state from a period much ahead of the planned pregnancy, during pregnancy and after. It is the responsibility of the family to help create such conditions and that of the ‘would be mother’ to appreciate what is being done for her and not to be too demanding.

2.2 Nourishment:

The development of fetus is a very complex process. It is a great evolution. It is a wonder of nature.

All the systems and parts of the body do not develop simultaneously; there is time a window when a particular organ or system of the body develops. Deficiency in nourishment at any stage of pregnancy will have an adverse effect on the organ that is suppose to develop during that time window of pregnancy. Fasting by ladies in general and by pregnant lady in particular, in some measure, is detrimental to the health of baby to be born. Providing healthy diet to our ladies is important for the Khalsa to be born and so for the Panth too.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166

2.3 Physical work:

Would be mother should engage herself in all the physical activities that her condition permits. Nothing should be forced on her and this would be mother should not avoid the work which she can do; keep in mind pregnancy is not a sickness. Physical work increases the blood circulation, which in turn is good for the baby developing in the womb; it helps remove the toxins and provide nourishment.

It has been empirically established that other aspects being similar, would be mothers who had engaged themselves in physical work have higher probability of normal and easy delivery. Normal and ease delivery is good for their baby. The movement from the secure place and position in the womb to the outside world is an ordeal for the baby too. There are very few individuals, who remember this experience, I happen to be one of them. I can say from my personal experience; it is terribly scary; what this experience is I am not elaborating here. The only thing that I say here is that it is terribly scary. As is the case with all such scary experience this experience at the time of birth has the potential of influencing the emotional well being of the child. By doing reasonable physical work during the stage of pregnancy our ‘would be mothers’ can minimise the pain for themselves - in duration and intensity - and the ordeal for the babies, thereby minimise the impact of this ordeal on the emotional well beings of the babies.

With this I close this part. ‘The Sat’ willing, next I will take up ‘The baby to be born’

With love and respect for all.

Amarpal Ji, all these abilities that you have mentioned above require individual attention. If you could elaborate more on these points... that would be immensely beneficail. Please do explain when you get time...

re: Developing 'Mint Grade' Khalsa: From Birth, for a Lifetime

Dear Aman Singh Ji,This morning in my post I had said that I will detail out on each of the topic where elaboration was said to be needed.

I have since deliberated over the issues. The plain fact is what I can include in my posts is only a small introduction so as to direct the attentions of the Khalsas towards something specific and cannot do any thing more. I am also aware that the solution for any problem is child and parent specific, the field in which I simply cannot fuction through internet. The best way for me is to recommend some good books that will help you to learn all that I know. This way you will not only help your own family but also those around you.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166

Please tell me if you want me to do so.

Incidently I wish to share with you something that I have learnt: it has been established that in families where books are part of the furniture and parents have reading habits, TV or no TV, the children acquire reading habits.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166

In my posts, over a period of time I will be introducing these subjects to our Sangat, this any way I am going to do, but it will take time and it will be general, not child specific.

With love and respect to all.

Amarpal

Developing 'Mint Grade' Khalsas: Part 3: The Baby to be Born

Dear Khalsa Ji,

With ‘The Sat’ willing, today I share with you my views on ‘Developing Mint Grade Khalsas’ based on my studies and learning in my life. What I know, I will share with you all in many small posts.

In Part 1 and 2, I had shared my views on certain aspects viz.

1. Introduction:
1.1. Definition of Mint Grade Khalsas:
1.2 Opening statements:
1.3 Our ancestral past:
1.4 Nature and nurture:
1.5 The peer group:

2 Would be mothers:

2.1 Mental state:
2.2 Nourishment:
2.3 Physical work:

Having shared with you this now I move to the next aspect.

3 The baby to be born:

In the womb the baby to be born is in a secure blissful state. This is the best condition for its development. How this state can be maintained, I elaborate below.

3.1 The Brain:

Before the baby comes into this world, it is already equipped with all the neurons in the brain it needs during its lifetime - about 100 billion neurons. Most of the neurons are not connected, some are. Most of the neurons connections are made after the birth based on its experience and learning from what the baby is exposed to. This gives the possibility to the parents to develop ‘Mint Grade Khalsas.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166

3.2 Sense of hearing:

Some of the mental faculties of the child are fully developed before the child experiences the out side world. Hearing is one such faculty; it is one of the Gyanindriyas. Inside the womb, after about 6 months, the child starts hearing all the sounds that reach it. The prominent among these sounds is mother’s heartbeats. The familiarity with this sound helps the mother to make the child feel secure in the outside world, which is totally new to the child. After the birth, when the child is disturbed, the mother picks it up, hold it close to her chest and gently pat it on the back. The thum thum thum ----- sound of the patting and its rhythm happens to be very close to the sound of mother’s heart beat that the child has been listening when it was in mother’s womb – a secure place. With this patting the child starts feeling the same sense of security as in the womb and becomes calm.

This developed sense of hearing can be used to provide the link between the feeling of security inside the womb and the out side world which is new to the child and in a way fearsome to it.

The mother can talk to the child who is still in the womb. The child, naturally, will not know what it means, but will be able to recognise the nature of sound – the tone, rhythm etc. This voice when heard again after the child is born will provide the child the continuity of experiences between its life in the womb and out side world and in some sense a familiarity with the outside world contributing to its sense of security.

This is the time to develop in the ‘Baby to be Born’ a liking for classical music. It has been empirically established that those children who come from the families of musicians or where music is part of family life, they easily develop the skills needed for classical music – vocal or instrumental. These children have the edge because they are early starters in this field. It is important for Khalsa families to play classical music in the room where ‘Would be Mother’ spends long time. It is still better if this lady plays classical music on some instrument or singers herself. The foundation for the child’s love for classical music should be laid even before the baby is born. How this learning helps the child in its future development, I will explain in later parts of this series.

It is needless to say that harsh sounds around the child are not very helpful for the development of mental capabilities of the child. All in the family should be sensitised on this and music or TV volume should be made low for this purpose.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166

3.3 Sense of touch, smell, taste and sight:

The senses of touch, smell, taste and sight are fully developed in the ‘Baby to be Born’. Unlike hearing, these senses are not yet trained by actual usage. The eyesight is not fully functional; the optical and neurological system is ready, but the muscle that are meant for focusing and for moving the eyeballs have not yet been exercised and so are not yet trained. This takes few days after the birth and the baby is able to focus and use the sense of sight fully.

3.4 General environment:

Human brain is not able to distinguish between the fiction and the reality. It behaves the same way when stimuli are received under these two different circumstances. For the brain it is only the stimulus that matters and not the source. That is why compassionate people start weeping when watching the films or TV serials showing intense suffering or injustice. This is not good for the health of the ‘Baby to be Born’. ‘Would be Mothers’ should avoid inflicting this emotional stress on themselves in the interest of their babies; the reasons for this statement I have already explained in my last post i.e. Part 2.

With this I close this post.

In the next I will share with you the next stage ‘The New Born Baby’

With love and respect for all.

Respected Amarpal Singh Virji,
Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh

It is very informative post on ‘Mint Grade’ Khalsa. I agree with all the suggestions that you have given for ‘would be’ mothers. It generally evolves what a family or mother should or should not do.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=1166


Just wanted to ask you ‘what would you call it when during one pregnancy a mother cannot bear the violent scenes & hence her TV viewing diminishes automatically and it is not so in another pregnancy’. Similarly; ‘during one pregnancy she is so calm & spiritual and yet in another one everything around her frustrates her & she even forces herself to do Nitnem’. Isn’t it the ‘soul in the womb’ controlling mother’s behavior? Can a mother still hope to raise a ‘Khalsa’ child who from day 1 of conception was a difficult one?

I enjoy your eloquent posts,
Thank you,
