Am I remembering correctly when I remember a fatwa issued against a woman shaving her head? My memory is not really good.A MUSLIM female is under the GAZES and SCANNERS of all Muslims because she Shaved her head Bald for Charity !!..and she is standing TALLL and has taken to wearing a DASTAAR !!!
time for your medication?Lil' Wayne will be rendering it apparent his / her emphasis will be about trend, not necessarily feuds. Possessing introduced his / her recently established skateboard-themed Trukfit series before in 2010, this individual discussed the beginnings and also function for the Linked Media.
Very True,Sad to say, this woman has more coursge and commitment than most Khalsa today.
We are given the title of Khalsa when we accept Amrit. That is a beginning. It is a life-long process to actually become "khalsa" which only a very few attain. I think aspiring for it is enough.Very True,
But then maybe they shouldn't be called Khalsa in the first place?
afterall, to be true khalsa is:
Khalsa mero satgur poora, Khalsa mero sajjan soora
Khalsa my satguru complete, Khalsa my virtous noble friend, brave dauntless warrior
how many of the people labelled Khalsa, or who label themselves khalsa are 100% pure and satgur poora?
until then i think we are all sikh (seekers of the truth)
There was a thread on this forum discussin who is a khalsa, or who should be termed as a khalsa.We are given the title of Khalsa when we accept Amrit. That is a beginning. It is a life-long process to actually become "khalsa" which only a very few attain. I think aspiring for it is enough.
At the risk of actually finding something to agree with you, I think your right, is aspiring enough? Can an aspiring doctor be as good as a qualified doctor?my personal thought is that someone should only be labelled/titled a khalsa when they attain 'khalsa'.
Again this is only an opinion and using a similar analogy to Harry Ji,At the risk of going further off topic...
Is amrit sanskar the enrollment or the graduation?
Yup, sorry for kinda taking this down another routeWe all seem to be going off at tangents here. Staying within the topic and including the khalsa mention-
Aspiring to become the khalsa and to be in the image of the guru is what khalsa is about.
Yes, I think the ones aspiring do count, this was the WHOLE IDEA in the eyes of the Guru. If he wasn't telling us to enrol as students of khalsa, then he wouldn't have left us the Sri Guru Granth Sahib!!!!
Yes, the ones that attain it are probably a few and far between, but we shouldn't be graduating and passing these students- That's what the Lord or Guru does, only he knows who qualifies!!!
Now, some one that is not a sikh like Ruqa may be confused reading this because she will be thinking what is sikh and what is khalsa ?
In simple words, what I would tell a kid,- A sikh is the learner, the way of life. Doesn't have to be baptised or initiated. Where as, when One offers their head and surrenders to the lord- this is when they are baptised or initiated- they have then got their 'pass' in to the 'brotherhood of khalsa' -
When entering this brotherhood, not only does one surrender and offer their head they are also 'REBORN'. Yes, they now have a new family.!!
Guru Gobind Singh ji is the father and Mata Sahib Kaur is the mother.
In this Khalsa, they have a duty to be in the image of their parents. -So, their appearance should reflect their father and mother...ie... no dishonouring of hair or body with piercings ..etc...
Like Chazji mentioned, we may think that such a person is khalsa and the other is not.
This should NOT be done, we shouldn't be judging, qualifying who is a brother or sister of this khalsa. So Chazji, let's get back to humility and not say that one is more khalsa than the other!!!!!
Just as in a family now, you may feel your brother/sister is not good enough, but your mother thinks otherwise, to her she is just as EQUAL as You. She is not going to dismiss her own child. -In this same way, Our Khalsa parents are not going to be told by us children, who to dismiss,..ie.. who is khalsa and who isn't, are they ??
In simple words this is what the sikh initiation involves, you get initated into the khalsa.
