    Are the hukamnamas from past saved anywhere? I mean, is it possible to find out the hukam from Darbar Sahib from the day I was born? I am just curious what it was... I don't know if its possible to go back that far. I know some apps now send everyday and you can go backward for some time, but I am talking about mid 70's hehe. Now you all know how old I am.

    In case anyone is wondering why I was asking this... majority of you born into Sikhi have a Sikh name chosen by your parents when you were a baby... therefore you grew up with it and already had it when / if you took Amrit.

    For those like me who came to it later in life I was told you can take a Sikh name several different ways... by using the Hukam the day you take Amrit... or perhaps more fittingly, if you can find the correct Hukam from the day you were born, then use that one.

    I think I like the idea of using the day of my birth... as that would coincide more with how most Sikhs born into it are given their name (well the naming ceremony shortly after birth).

    I was able to have someone trace back and the Hukam from that day begins with S...

    btw yes I am still doing Amrit... I have decided we can both all be correct. I think SGGSJ surpasses one or the other in meaning... so that anyone at whatever level they are at will find truth in it.

    I also have an S name chosen... but I don't know what do I have to do to make it 'official'?

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!
