Re: Halal

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh. I must be honest: of what I know, the eating of Halal meat is far more contrary to the principles of Sikhi than simply the eating of meat.

Re: TRANSLATION "Turia Turia ja Farida"

Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh As I understand, 'Turia' translates to 'keep going' or 'carry on' or 'move forward'. Farid[a] is the individual's name. So the looser translation is essentially a command (or request, or imploring) from the singer/writer, telling Guru Farid to continue, or ...

Re: Sikhi and depression

Waheguru ji ka khalsa, waheguru ji ki fateh. If you had diabetes, would you reject your insulin and trust in God to keep your body complete? Or would you accept that God has given you this road to walk, and take the medicine that you need to keep you healthy? If you had an infection of the lungs, wo...

Re: So tired and lost

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. I am transgender and gay. I have been told that because of this, I cannot be Amritdhari, but for me, this means only that I cannot dedicate myself to a human law and ritual. I am dedicated to Waheguru, and even if I am told I can never take Amrit, it does...

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

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh. If you will excuse my pasting: ਜਗਿ ਹਉਮੈ ਮੈਲੁ ਦੁਖੁ ਪਾਇਆ ਮਲੁ ਲਾਗੀ ਦੂਜੈ ਭਾਇ ॥ (The world is polluted with the filth of egotism, suffering in pain. This filth sticks to them because of their love of duality.) ਮਲੁ ਹਉਮੈ ਧੋਤੀ ਕਿਵੈ ਨ ਉਤਰੈ ਜੇ ਸਉ ਤੀਰਥ ਨਾਇ ॥ (This fi...

Caring For A Damaged Kesh

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I am a Canadian who, two years ago, converted to SIkhi. While I will never be able to be Amritdhari, I still keep my kesh. Or I have tried to, at least. However, due to physical and mental illness over the last long while, I have not been taking such good c...
