Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Being blessed to take Amrit means we fully submit to Waheguru/Guru Ji hukam, we give our head to our Guru. Taking Amrit means we stay in Rehat (code of conduct) which helps us to become a Gursikh.

Check this post out:

"rehat pyari mujhko sikh pyara nahi" Guru Gobind Singh Ji my father once said being a sikh one should keep rehat (sikh code of conduct) without rehat you are not a sikh at all. We should all try our best to become a true son of shri guru gobind singh ji maharaj. We all love our beloved guru gobind singh ji . let us all practice sikhism from the bottom of our heart let us all take the "amrit" let us all become one with the true guru. Listning to Katha can help you to follow the sikh path. I am a live example I took amrit once i started listening to the katha of Giani Thakur Singh Ji (patiala wale) it totaly changed my life. listen to the katha with love in your heart. I started with Japji sahib katha then all the other 6 bani in daily sikh prayers and many more. I took me one year to take the amrit after i started listening katha. Only thing which keep inspiring me was my love for the guru which i kept on increasing within my heart day by day. Hope you all join the true sikh path. waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh.

In my opinion a good Sikh is one who follows the Guru, and Guru Ji has blessed us with Amrit which allows us to obtain his beautiful roop.

Yes they do.

you are very worng

one is not a sikh if they have not taken amrit. without the amrit a "sikh" is nigurra, without a guru. they are without the formal administration of naam and mantar.

that "sikh" who is without amrit may serve but they do not yet walk the path of the guru.

Importance of Amrit

Amrit is the top institution of the Sikh faith. It is "Abae-Hayat" the water bestowing eternal life – eternity and immortality.

They become immortal by drinking Amrit of the Lord (Naam-Jaap), and vices lure them no more. 5-81-1 "ਅਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਹਰਿ ਪੀਵਤੇ ਸਦਾ ਥਿਰੁ ਥੀਵਤੇ ਬਿਖੈ ਬਨੁ ਫੀਕਾ ਜਾਨਿਆ" || ੫-੮੧-੧

Amrit has spiritual as well as, physical aspects. Spiritually speaking, Amrit is the Name of God and its recitation. Physically, it is a special drink, meant for the spiritual growth. The aim o recitation of the Name of God and of taking Amrit, is the same. Amrit is meant to put a fellow to Gurbani and Naam- Jaap (reading Scriptures and reciting His Name) – the path leading to God.

Taking "Amrit" is the cherished desire common both to the Guru and his Sikh. The Guru desires the disciple to take it, and one fully oriented to the faith, becomes keen to do so. Taking Amrit is the Sikh way of getting inducted into this faith. Drinking Amrit is a vow to live an elevated life and to do Naam-Jaap – recite God's nam

Guru Amar Das says, “The angelic persons and the silent sages search for the Divine Nectar. That Nectar I have obtained from the Guru.”
