Sawa lakh se EK larraoan

Ishna Ji,Harry bhaji, I don't think it's that simple. It appears that to be amritdhari you have you make a compromise: agree to recite DAILY passages which do not come from Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
I'm still not sure how a Sikh can justify in his/her mind how agreeing to do that, when it goes against their better judgement, is fulfilling the Sikh ideal in the first place? Is it not better to be a good Sikh than a compromised amritdhari?
I feel like Ben from the "What is Truth" thread!
A SIKH has to approach the FIVE in the UTMOST HUMBLE MANNER. Its NOT A RIGHT..its a PRIVILEGE that the FIVE allow you to be part of the PAHUL CEREMONY. No one can DEMAND the FIVE assemble and give him/her the Pahul. EVEN GURU GOBIND SINGH JI had to REQUEST the FIVE to give Him Pahul.
2. The FIVE also do a SUDHAII of EACH OTHER..to Find out IF each one is SUITABLE and acceptable to the other four as part of the FIVE. This sudhaii takes place, any transgressions etc are revealed and the Five decide and do an ardass before the SGGS. ONLY then are the FIVE ready to prepare the Pahul.
Before that EACH "SIKH" before them has to reveal any transgressions/etc and accept whatever the Five say. Lets say a person cut his hair..and now wnats to retake Pahul..he/she CANNOT keep this a SECRET and just pretend its his/her FIRST TIME...by right he/she has to stand up and admit his transgression..accept the Five decison on what he needs to do..and ONLY then can he/.she be re-administered Pahul.
OF Course anyone can HIDE his/her true intentions..and no one will know..BUT then whats the use of going to the FIVE anyway..why not stay hoem and make your own Pahul and drink it.
3. There is no such thing as "my better judgement". This better/worse judgement is LEFT OUTSIDE THE DOOR of the PAHUL ROOM. INSIDE the ROOM..UNDER ARMED GUARD..ONLY the JUDGEMENT of the SGGS and the FIVE prevails. Take it or leave it.
SO YES..its SIMPLE...THAT SIMPLE and Harry ji is RIGHT.
