Gurufateh Section Six Article XXIV of the SGPC Sikh Rehat Maryada contains instructions for conducting the Khande Di Pahul (Khalsa initiation ceremony). Items P and Q detail the instructions the Panj Pyare are to give to the new Khalsa: Do the Panj Pyare have authority to change these instructions? I've read on other forums that people say 'the Panj Pyare told me I can't eat eggs' (this is an example only, please don't start talking about eggs); or 'the Panj Pyare told me the daily banis are XYZ': does this actually happen? Are the same instructions given regardless of the Gurdwara someone attends? For instance, the AKJ don't have their own written maryada (as far as I'm aware), but they have keski as kakar instead of kesh, so do they change the above instructions to suit? How can one be sure what they're committing to, especially if the amrit sanchar is conducted in a language which the new Khalsa can't understand? Many thanks.
