    Dear Manni - AMRIT is not something that you take or buy. In Punjabi we say Amrit Shakna hai taan Jaan deni peni hai. For centuries people were looking for Amrit - finding it everywhere in Mountains / Jungles so that they can be immortal. So that they can live for ever. But the AMRIT that GURU GOBIND SINGH JI gave us teaches us how to die ? it's the opposite of the Amrit that people for looking for.
    Your 2nd question - when to AMRIT SHAKNA ? I would say the sooner you do it the better for you. As long as you can keep can Maryada associated with it. Meaning NITNEM and other banis daily - need dedication. You mentioned u r 15 years old now. We are considered to knowledgeable when we turn 13 years old. Any time before 13 is forgiven since we don't know what's good and bad. Any time after 13 is considered a waste if we don't do NAAM JAPNA.

    Again only you can answer that call when you are ready for AMRIT ?

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!
