Thank you for the post, I enjoyed the video, and the music was soothing too (regardless of who the organisation are).
I kept up with the other thread where you tried to express your experiences etc and wanted to post but failed to.
On a personal note I agree with the basis on the...
This reminds me of the 12th pauri of Jap ji:
ਮੰਨੇ ਕੀ ਗਤਿ ਕਹੀ ਨ ਜਾਇ ॥ Manne kī gaṯ kahī na jā▫e. The state of the faithful cannot be described.
ਜੇ ਕੋ ਕਹੈ ਪਿਛੈ ਪਛੁਤਾਇ ॥ Je ko kahai picẖẖai pacẖẖuṯā▫e. One who tries to describe this shall regret the attempt.
ਕਾਗਦਿ ਕਲਮ ਨ ਲਿਖਣਹਾਰੁ ॥ Kāgaḏ kalam...
Problem with the "charan pahul" concept also, is the extended levels of abuse happening to this day with the same principle being promoted.
I've seen first hand, people drink used water from washing feet/hands in a bid to obtain wisdom/luck from their "holy men", eating left overs, calling it...
All of this is quite complex to keep up with, I thought Mahabharat was complex.
It seems only some understand when or not God allowed exceptions to the rules.
Then again it seems to be the fragile band aid used to temporarily fix the leaks, when you have no real answer to the basic...
This thread seems to have gone way off topic and on to the DG debate.

Referencing people who believed in DG does not mean we should also, or that its set in stone that we must because so and so...

People like to do things jazzed up, for example you can now do hip hop spinning bike classes, hot yoga, listen to Pop style Shabad Kirtan, bowing Jaap...
No offence taken sister :kaurkhalsaflagblue:
I think the key might be our Gurdwara's introducing similar sessions with the couple as Church's do, where it is taught about basics of Sikhi, the Anand karaj, the commitment etc, this should be made mandatory before marriage.
But in reality the...
Think there is a lot of emphasis on Sikh-Non Sikh weddings, seems to be a lot of "beadbi" cries when this happens.
When in reality if you look at most weddings the couples don't really understand Sikhi themselves or pledge to live by the faith etc and do it mainly because its the done thing...
This is typical old school thinking of Indian men (would hope a minority now!), doubting, misconceptions, non-trusting which in reality is their insecurity. Even if she was it does not condone these actions.
Sherdil the Ninja looks sweet!
Harry, doesn't really matter what you ride, it's the feeling you get riding a motorbike that a car can never recreate.
Maybe when we both have our bikes we can go for a ride as we are both in the UK. 0:)
