    Spnadmin ji quoted from Rehat Maryada in another thread:

    There are also reasons for being chastised and receiving a punishment from the panj pyare. Again. None have to do with going to/eating at wedding parties.

    (1) Anyone maintaining relations or communion with elements antagonistic to the Panth including the minas (reprobates), the Masands (agents once accredited to local Sikh communities as Guru’s representatives, sine discredited for their faults and aberrations), followers of Dhirmal or Ram Rai, et. al., or users of tobacco or killers of female infants;

    What if some family members smoke? Work collegues? Is one supposed to cut oneself off from them?

    Or does "maintaining relations" mean your spouse and "communion" mean worship?

    Many thanks
