check the rehat on that. one is sikh by heart though but taking amrit is the straightt path the one that is most easiest. (a) (mrit) no death or elixer maybe even ambrosial nectar taking the amrit one becomes kalesh pure and is truly called a khalsa

Guru Gobind SIngh Ji asked for our heads and nothing less when He first established the Khalsa Panth in 1699. Giving your head also means sacrificing your mind, body, and soul. Taking Amrit is giving yourself up to the Guru and becoming His true disciple. Since most people are not willing to let go of their worldly pleasures and doubts, they do not take Amrit. It is one thing to adopt some Sikhi practices into your life, like doing Jap Ji Sahib paat every morning, but it is another to fully accept the Guru. If you want 100% of the Guru in your life, please take Amrit. There is no point in accepting half of things Guru Ji tells us to do. Like reading bani and eating meat. There are no double standards or special exceptions for anybody. Receiving Amrit is like saying Guru Ji, "Toon toon karta toon hooa, mujh mai rahaa naa hoon." In other words, according to Bhagat Kabir Ji, by constantly repeating the Name of God, I have become You and You have become me, ego has vanished from my being. Hopefully, you too will make the decision to marry yourself to the Guru as His soul-bride.
