I don't think you're allowed to cut any hair from any part of the body once you take Amrit. This is because guru ji wants the amritdhari sikhs to appreciate the form of body that the God has given us and not change it.

2016-04-07 17:30:17 -0600 asked a question Restlessness, weakness, vibration, blood flowing in body and crown area

I am a 19 year old girl.

Over the past week, I have observed some symptoms that I am very unsure of. Since I wake up in the morning to the point when I sleep at night, my body experiences certain feelings. For instance, I can always feel the blood flowing throughout my body, my heart beating faster and also, some kind of pressure building up in my crown area of the head. On the occasions when the pressure is not building up, my crown area (only) is significantly colder than my body. I get lightheaded and dizzy when I get up all of the sudden. I am always cold. I feel mild shivering sensations in my body. I don't know if to call it vibrations, but I do feel something I didn't feel before. I don't know how to describe this but I feel "weak" and I am sure that it isn't because of my diet as I am eating normal amounts of food, and not starving myself. Sometimes, I become restless because I can feel my heart beating faster but when I check my pulse, it seems normal.

I tried not drinking coffee since these are somewhat kind of symptoms related to overconsumption of caffeine, but the feelings did not stop.

I was searching on google and it says that these symptoms occur once you start becoming more "aware". I don't know what that means. I don't really meditate every day. But I do try to read a page of Guru Granth Sahib each day and think about God each day. There is some kind of constant movement in my body and I can kind of feel it.

I can't go to the doctor for another month or two. Do you think this is something serious?

2016-03-26 17:28:13 -0600 asked a question Lost desire to live, demotivated, suicidal with no self confidence

Hi,

I am really sorry this is going to be very long. I really need some sort of guidance and I don't know who to ask. Please help me.

I have had the privilege of been born into such a wonderful religion and I have always considered myself as the daughter of Guru Gobind Singh Ji (I love him). I was a very intelligent and confident young girl (up until grade 11) who knew she wanted to become a Doctor and she wasn't going to stop at anything to get what she wanted. I even got the highest average from the entire class in grade 10, which made my friends hate me and say to my face.. that they hated that I was so smart and that their brown parents told them to be better than me. Of course, I left their friendship.

However, starting that point on, I never got good science teachers and I didn't learn basic sciences. I started hating my life and expecting the worst of life and I started going horrible in school. It was worse as both of my parents were masters in Physics and Chemistry and teachers back in India. And me, as their daughter, was a failure at these sciences. My progress started declining and I got rejected from my dream program. I still chose my dream university but with the second best program (with avg. of 90). However, from the moment I started university, I HAD NO CONFIDENCE IN MY ABILITY TO STUDY AND EXCEL. I worked and didn't get good marks, and then I quit trying. I slept all day literally... I was very depressed all first year. All I did was eat (gained 30 lbs) or sleep or watch TV shows (Grey's Anatomy) and I hated my life. I just didn't think (and still do- and I hate myself for this) that I am not good enough to become a doctor here in Canada. I thought everyone was much better than me, and more deserving. I have thought about committing suicide MANY times in my life because I feel like I'm betraying my parents, who are immigrants to this country. Also I am overweight and living in an brown community has made me realize how horribly that affects your self esteem when your relatives/family friends brutally comment about my weight problems. Anyways, for some reason, I am never able to just end my life, maybe I am scared of after life (yamdoots are brutal) and I feel like it would be an injustice to end my life, considering that my guru father was such a fearless and brave man.

My problem is that now I am finishing my second year of university (transferred out of my dream school into a not so prestigious university) and I have done horribly this year too. I am probably a low 60's student now. I don't study with passion about the subject I ... (more)
