Re: I Have done TOO many sins PLEASE HELP ME Sangat Ji

Waheguru ji ka khalsa Waheguru ji ki fateh Suicide is not the answer. It is a permanent "solution" to a temporary problem. If you are having real suicidal thoughts, please seek help from a crisis center with people qualified to give mental health advice. https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/suicid...

Re: Alcohol

When you cook with wine the alcohol cooks away. This is why you don't have to prohibit children from eating boeuf bourguignon. I take the prohibition of alcohol for the Sikh to mean abstaining from the intoxicating effects of it.

Re: Meat & Alcohol in House

Sin is in the eye of the beholder. Clearly your wife will not be happy with meat and alcohol in the house because she feels that it would be a sin. I ask you, why would you put your wife in this position? Is having alcohol and meat in the house that important to you or is it "a matter of principle"?...

Re: Reciting which paath would get me wealth and prosperity?

Your efforts will be fruitless if wealth is your motivation for worship. It is not recitation of words that pleases God. It is heartfelt devotion. Make this your focus and everything else will follow, although once you have a meaningful relationship with God your desire for material things will dimi...

Re: The Purpose of Life According to Sikhi

This may sound a little Buddhist but I like to say that the purpose of life is to relieve the suffering of others (seva) and to attain liberation (simran).

Re: Job

Your conscience will tell you what to do. If you feel this is wrong, it is. If you feel that trimming an animal's fur does not violate your keeping of kesh then it does not. Medical professionals must remove hair from surgical sites of patients preoperatively but this does not mean a Gursikh cannot ...

Re: Mixed race wedding at gurdwara

Race is not the issue, the issue is marrying in the presence of the Guru implies that the teachings in the Bank will be a key component in the union between the bride and groom. Seeing as neither party are practicing Sikhs I see why one would be opposed.

Re: Vengeance

I wondered about that myself. Suggesting that her killing was an act of vengeance would mean that the two Singhs that ended her life are not shaheedi. In light of that I came to the personal conclusion that those brave Singhs acted to prevent her from further acts of violence. This is my personal co...
