Waheguru ji ka Khalsa , Waheguru ji ki Fateh . My name's Manjit Kaur and I'm 20 . I'm from such a family who hasn't taken Amrit yet. But I want to. I want to walk on the path of our Guru Sahib's teaching. I want to be a sikhni. But my parents don't allow. Not sure why but 80% the reason might be marraige. As I've already said that we are not amritdharis. So it's hard for them to find one of that kind. And if we see today, it's like more chances to get rejected due to facial hair . So i think this might be their reason . I don't want to disappoint them. It's just that I'm not getting any solution. What shall i do . How shall i convince them. If i become an Amritdhari with waheguru ji's kirpa that would be the biggest blessing and gift I'm waiting for . Please suggest me !

Dear Manjit, It is great that you are feeling ready to take Amrit. If you aren't sure why your family feels that, this is a discussion to have with your family about why they might not feel it. Maybe there is another reason. If the reason is indeed marriage, it would be good to point out that you wouldnt want to marry someone that superficial anyways- that you want to marry someone who will also walk the same path as you! I think if you've already made the commitment and you are showing you are capable of upholding the responsibility they can't really have an argument against that. You shouldnt worry about disappointing them, your relationship is with you and God and i've never heard of a single parent disappointed that their child is now amritdhari. I think just opening up the discussion with the intent that you are serious about pursuing this is a good step. So the answer is yes you can take amrit.
