2015-12-07 00:40:42 -0500 asked a question Where is the money spent that is collected in gurdwara?

I have a simple question. where does the money go which is collected by gurdwara sewadaars or the money that people donate to gurdawaras? do they spent on social causes? if yes then why so many people are collecting sewa door to door?

Is there any portal where we can track how much money is collected and spent by gurdwaras like Golden Temple?

2015-12-07 00:36:30 -0500 asked a question Why So many sewadaars collecting Sewa?

I believe so many people wants to know its answer.

These days so many people(Sewadaar) visit people door to door to collect sewa. While some just ask for sewa others Demand specific amount. There is one sewadaar who is collecting sewa from past 15 year to build a gurdwara.I have stopped giving him money from last few years. Now some people are collecting money in the name of bird ashram/ Orphanage. (While writing this line another sewadaar knocked on my gate, I sent him empty handed). Their visits now a days are very frequent and it annoys me. what annoys me more is that they keep asking for money and intrude into the house.

So my questions are

  1. Why the sewadaars are collecting money door to door? Is it right people collecting money in the name of Guru.
  2. Should I complain to police if they intrude into my house?
  3. Do sewadaar really spend the money for the cause they are collecting for?
  4. Shouldn't Gurdwaras be funding religious events? (people do contribute sewa to local gurdwara)
  5. There are so many sewadaars, why don't they do some Real job and earn and spend money for their cause?

I don't have problem giving money for religious events but the frequency of collecting money is increasing and it is getting on my nerves.
