What if you didn't know you were wrong..? Does that also makes you a 'patit'? Please, explain me.. What if you only knew or you did only followed a few principles of sikhi but you din't good understand the full concept till know but you were already somehow going on the right feeling of way of sikhi..? Can you please explain the sehajdhari part..? What if you were born like a SINGH but you were moved oit due to familyissues and later you are back with your adherent.. But you still did not fully understand the concept or beliefs due to many reasons, problems, obstacles like language problems.. Or does your instinct never lie? your intuïtion..? Is it possible or is it the only way? Do you think that if God really wanted to me find the way of sikhi there would be no downfalls like I mean like actually (actions of a patit) like when on the way of a sehajdhari/sikh if you actually are born with a father that is Singh but the mother not and the child after many years( but actually from heart already felt somethin)goes back start to change but still makes kuherits as this is normally not allowed can you avoid kurehits even before you know anything about sikhi? and even if you don't know

Do not complicate such a simple thing. Patit is this: when you have met the True Guru, and you have recognized and understood that He is your Guru, and then you consciously turn your back on Him and reject Him and His Sangat. That is patit.

Can a patit his 'mistakes' been forgiven..? Sometimes i read that if a keshdhari or amritdhari do kurehits then they are patit and need to get 'punishhed'.. but i also read that anyone who is a sikh also can be called a 'patit' if he does makes the 'same' mistake

Even the 40 liberated ones were forgiven by the Guru. If one who has turned his back on his Guru returns to the Sangat with love and humility and once again sincerely offers himself to the Guru, serving the Sangat with grace and gratitude, then forgiveness can happen. The first forgiveness is for that Sikh to forgive himself.
