Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

It is great your visiting Sri Harmandir Sahib, but make sure you it doesn't turn into empty pilgrimage. Listen to the bani that is being sung and try to understand it, also try and do some sewa if you can.

The point of a Kirpan, is to protect you and others in times on need. Amritdari Sikhs keep them on their waists for many reasons but one so its quickly accessible.

You will get no benefit just by keeping stuff in your handbag, as they can't stop bad things/effects happening. We can't stop bad stuff happening in our lives, but by praying and doing sewa the effect of these bad things can turn out to be less.

Sikhs don't believe in any scared thread, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji rejected them. In the same way if your going to carry any of the 5k's (panj kara) then we need to utilise them as spiritual tools, for example wearing the Kara is to remind us good is always near at hand and we should't do anything bad with these hands.

To keep yourself protected try doing Waheguru Simran or Mool mantar or if you can try reading Chaupai Sahib or any of the other panj bania.

Are you sure you are not getting scammed for ordering prashad online, I don't think you can sell prashad.

Forgive me if i said anything wrong or offended you.

Sat Sri Akaal

Dear Deepika,

            There's absolutely no issues in you wearing a Khanda despite you being a non-Sikh.  I myself have heard of Prasad being booked at the Golden Temple through Online but i haven't tried myself yet but yes if you have received Rumaala and a Kirpan with the Prasad you can keep them in your handbag, no doubt about that.

To keep yourself and your family away from any bad effects of life the best thing to do is Chanting the name of Dhan Guru Nanak for at least an hour a day, this can be done while doing various chores of the household, while travelling, or even while sitting alone during meditation. Remember, God himself took birth onto this Earth in the form of Guru Nanak, so the best and easiest way to salvation in this dark age is through Chanting HIS Name.

But what surprises me is you being a Tamilian Hindu, how come you got in touch with Sikhism because as per my knowledge there are very Sikhs in the State of Tamil Nadu. Did you learn of Sikhism through your Sikh friends, how did you got interested in Sikhism?

Thanks for al ur replies.. I don't know how I got interested but it's more of a belief than jus telling it an interest.. One of my friend visited golden temple n told abt it so right from the time she told I started believing.. Thanks a ton for the wonderful reply :)
