Taken from another thread, posted by Sherdil ji and as quoted above, what Guru Saab has said about Jooth (jhootah or jhootha)? Interestingly there is no proper word to translate the word Jhooth in English language... perhaps, Unclean...Sherdil said:It's not real Amrit, from what I understand. The motivation behind it may vary from family to family. Some may see it as a sentimental gesture, a way to initiate their newborn into Sikhi, or a precautionary measure that would allow the parents to share utensils with their newborn without fear of it being "jhootah".
Please discuss with full shabds and/or panna/page numbers for a ready reference and preferably with your own understanding to enable fellow readers to join you and evolve.
