    Consider this as a reminder to - Walo'n nickey raste de pandhi ban'na i.e. to walk a path which is narrower than a hair.

    A realization of - Jao tao prem khelan ka chao, sir dhar tali gali mori aao

    I see Amrit sanchar, as like a marriage to Akal Purakh. You are promising HIM that you will always be there with HIM..and try to do what is right. You promise to be truthful, and faithful to HIM (by following your rehit). And just like a marriage between two people, that bond between you and God, Amrit, is something that you have and cherish for the rest of your life.
    Amrit is your explression of love for your God.

    i dont view amrit sanchar...i view the people who are have taken amrit, and do they devote themselves to being a true sikh. And i think it is ok with people who have taken amrit sanchar because they remember god, and no matter what level they remember god, aslong as they love and devote their life to god. As long as they remember gods name

    Can it be a formal conversion to universal Faith?

    Vijaydeep Singh, it can be what ever you want it to be, as noes relationship with God is their's and their's alone.

    lol, dont worry, sorry i was jsut tired i thought i just type something in, but what im saying is that, i know already that amrit sanchar is good, its the ones who become amrit sanchar that i view more importantly, because many dont follow them properly.

    That is very true... personally before i took amrit myself, my aunt was like " oh this ( taking amrit) is becoming such a trend theses days" Many people do take amrit but then dont follow the rehit... but then again like i said before your relationship with God is between you and Him and no one else. If they took it but then did not follow the rehit, that is there problem with HIM and it will eventually show them some sort of lesson in the end. Amrit is a very important aspect of a Sikhi, BUT its not the most important, its better to be a good person and do good dead without having amrit, than not doing any nice things and having it.
    This is just my opinion and really doesnt mean much as i am still learning

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
