waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ke fateh

i'm 15 and i have been preparing myself to take amrit since i was 7, but i still have some questions i want answered before i do so:

  1. i wear a Dumalla all the time and i find it uncomfortable to wear a small dastar or keski. is it and mandatory to where a dastar at the amrit sanchar? can i tie my dumalla?

  2. is taking hot showers wrong? i love hot showers and i need it specifically in Canadian winters.

  3. the concept of being reborn when taking amrit; does that mean all the paat and simran i have done won't count?

  4. is okay to take amrit before you finish your santhya? (correct pronouncation of gurbani)i still do my nitnem though

thank you waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ke fateh

  1. You can surely tie Dumalla.
  2. Try taking a hot shower and a cold one in the last 30 seconds. The idea is to shake n wake yourself up.
  3. It means you are giving up your old ways. And taking up a new identity.
  4. I assume you can read Punjabi well.

I salute you!!! hehe I love hot showers too but I force my self to take cold showers :) but then again I live in a place where it doesn't get really hot so I donno. Like kanwaljit.singh the point of taking a cold shower is to waken up you sleepy muscles. Your paat and simran always counts. you first have to follow the rehat of Sikhi and only then can you take amrit an really mean it. If you took amrit without knowing how to do paat or read gurmukhi taking amrit like that is just not right.

To run a marathon you first have to train for hours and days and not give up and only then will you be ready to run the marathon. So hang in there, keep thinking about whether you are ready and strong enough or not. :)

But I really salute you for being so dedicated and in love with your Guru :) Taking amrit and becoming Khalsa is a great commitment and is AWESOME :)

Believe in your Guru and everything will turn out fine :)
