    at night for yourself??

    I always do all my prayers myself, but I found this version of Chaupai Sahib and I think I am addicted to it, I have the urge to listen to it all the time, even at night etc.

    Thank you so much!

    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguruji Ki Fateh, Sat Sri Akal.

    Why wouldn't it be ok?

    Chaupai is also an 'evening prayer'.

    because for some, there are rituals and ceremonies to be followed, you cannot just show devotion or love when you feel like it!!!!!!

    I think Harry ji is getting to a subtle layer of experience with his recent comment. Play out this scenario. It is not difficult to imagine. A kaur likes Chaupai Sahib ji and says it with burst of enthusiasm whenever during the day or night she is moved to do so. So far so good, because she is expressing love when and where she feels love. A few years into her life she becomes very involved in community, gurdwara activities, discussion groups. It becomes evident to all that she is saying Chaupai several times a day. Maybe she even lets it slip. This is really hard for "traditionalists" to understand. So, they start a rumor mill and find lame arguments for excluding her from participation. On the grounds that she is an eccentric or worse a heretic. Does anyone think this sort of thing doesn't happen in the real world of the "church?" That's why a person could get a little nervous. My personal response is that one can and should say Chaupai as one pleases, because there are many years ahead when, in trying to please everyone, you will please no one. Might as well please Waheguru.

    They say you get pimples if you listen to morning prayers at night.

    Kamala ji it is nice to have a routine. Many people skip breaktfast. They are still happy. And not hungry. But if you have your early breakfast at 8am, your day is something different. But it doesn't mean you can't have fruits of breakfast at night. Sikhi has no restrictions if you wish to do more!

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!
