The mind is always racing whether you think about things carefully or not. Saying you want to go to a religious place does not make it something compulsory. Whatever you pray for if it is with a true heart it will come true. If you do not really want something to happen it wont.

Find something you enjoy, if you have any hobbies or something else that interests you maybe focus on that. In terms of studies if you are finding it difficult maybe try and talk to some of your peers or teachers about it there are many ways to study. Maybe you learn using videos or doing more practical forms of studying. If you have given it your all and you find studying is not for you it is not the end of the world. Find something that interests you or even a job that interests you and see how you will need to get there.

Do you mean sukhna as in resolve or vow? You are making decisions to do things or go to places? If you are just having thoughts of things which you feel are not good or you are not happy with it is natural to do so. Everything you think about does not have to be acted upon. Nor do you have to do anything to counteract it. If you do feel distressed try and focus on something else like doing simran or other forms of meditation.

Hope this helps

You cannot get pregnant from peeling your skin of your head, it can be a symptom of pregnancy but you cannot get pregnant from it.

2018-11-01 05:04:18 -0600 answered a question Why do some Amritdhari Sikhs do Jhatka in Gurudwara

In Sikhism there have now become difference sects who follow their own sets of rules. Jhatka is wrong but it does not stop them from doing so, people are also afraid to get involved as they feel intimidated by these groups. Some of them use excuses like the Kirpans and Shastr have a thirst for blood which is ridiculous. People are looking excuses for eating meat and this is just one of the ways they feel it can be justified to do so.

Hope this helps answer your question.

2018-11-01 04:51:31 -0600 answered a question Guru Arjun Dev Ji Mughal conflict

The allegations against the Guru were baseless, there was no passage in the Adi Granth that defamed Hindus and Muslims. The people in power at the time generated excuses to have Guru Ji arrested it was mainly politically based as well as personal goals that lead to the arrest of Guru Ji. Some of these included - Sikhism was gaining popularity and the Muslims and Hindus felt threatened by it - Jahangir was a Muslim fundamentalist and wanted to create an Islamic state - Guru Ji was accused of aiding Khusrau (Jahangir's son who was seen as a more ideal ruler) - Chandu Shah was rejected by the Guru Ji for proposal of marriage of his daughter to Guru Hargobind Ji and wanted revenge (influenced Murtaza Khan who was in charge of punishing Guru Ji)

It was Guru Har Rai Ji who refused to change the passage mentioning Muslims

ਮਿਟੀ ਮੁਸਲਮਾਨ ਕੀ ਪੇੜੈ ਪਈ ਕੁਮ੍ਹ੍ਹਿਆਰ ॥ miTee musalamaan kee peRai piee kumi(h)aar ||

Sri Guru Granth Sahib ~ Ang 466

His son Ram Rai went to Delhi to meet with Aurangzeb but got scared and to please the Emperor he changed the line to Mitti Baimaan Ki. Guru Ji disowned him and forbid other Sikhs to remain in contact with him.

2018-02-06 14:38:14 -0600 answered a question Wjkk wjkf. Im really curious. Can an amritdhari sikh have a gf/bf?

In relation to your question about taking Amrit, yes you can take Amrit without knowing how to speak Punjabi. Sikh means learner and we will continue to learn till the end whether we take Amrit or not. You can always start learning and continue to improve in your Punjabi as time goes on, besides there are many websites and apps that can help.

In Sikhism there should not be such a thing as dating. There is no purpose for it unless you are looking to get married and settle down. If you are for example a 16 years old why would you want to get a boyfriend. Why invest time, money and effort into a relationship you know is temporary. What is the reason you are with this person is it because they are attractive? Gurbani says

ਪਰ ਤ੍ਰਿਅ ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਪੇਖੈ ਨੇਤ੍ਰ ॥ “With your eyes, do not even gaze (in a lustful manner) upon the beauty of another.” ~ Sukhmani Sahib.

Being in such a relationship you are moving away from your Guru. Your focus is on another person and trying to maintain a relationship that will most likely not last. Even if it is not about attraction and simply about finding company you should be free and independent. Especially if you are young, it is the time you enjoy life, study hard experience new things live your lives. There is so much to do, to see, to learn why put yourself in a situation where you are worrying about a person’s opinions about you or worrying about someone not replying to your texts. It is the best time for you to learn about Sikhi, to get closer with Guru Ji.

You mentioned your friends who are Amritdharis are in relationships. It is important to remember that not everything Amritdharis may do is right. You need to think for yourself, why is there a need to find someone to be in a relationship. Most often it is because of the influence of society, if everyone else is doing it why shouldn’t I? Being in boyfriend/girlfriend relations also these days lead to premarital sex or some sort of activities in those categories which is wrong. We should have respect for ourselves Guru Ji even gives us a reminder in the form of one of our 5K’s the Kachera, to preserve our dignity to remind ourselves to be smart and stay away from lust. At the end of the day however it is up to you, no one can stop an individual from making decisions. In Sikhism it is perfectly fine to be in relationships but why you wish to be in one is important. If you are looking for a long-term situation and are thinking of getting married then it makes sense to find someone and spend time with them. If however you are going out with someone because everyone else is doing it, or feel attracted to someone then it ... (more)

2018-01-25 02:23:06 -0600 answered a question Prophecies

Hi,

Is the prophecy you are referring to the one about Waheguru coming back into another form and a rise of the Khalsa? If so then Guru Gobind Singh Ji already told us our last and everlasting Guru after him would be Guru Granth Sahib Ji. 'Bhani Guru, Guru hai Bani'. Guru Ji did warn us however that the Harmandir Sahib will be attacked. Our Gurus did not write prophecies we are to focus on how to reach our ultimate goal (achieving mukti), there is no point in worrying about what will happen in the future just leave it up to Waheguru. I hope this answers your question.

Harpreet Ji it is perfectly natural for you to feel upset and hurt over the guy who left you however you should not let one person affect your confidence. Marriage is supposed to help both you and your partner form a partnership in which you help each other become closer to God.

If you still feel confused, instead of seeing so many people take your time with the process. Try and see the mannerisms and the way in which individuals act and behave towards you and others around you. I think that may bring about a greater indication of a person who is kind and genuine. Try and relax and take your time, like Guruka Ji said Guru Ji will sort things out for you.

Guru Arjan Dev (724)

‘Oh Individual, Why do you worry? The One who created you is taking care of you.’

2017-12-14 03:14:14 -0600 answered a question British Kings and the gurus

There has been no evidence or any account that has said the British ever came into contact with the Gurus. Although they did come to India around the 1600s, they mainly stayed around the coast for trading purposes. Their main headquarters were in London and it was not until the 1750s where the British started exerting more military power over parts of India and get involved with Indian politics which later enabled them to exert their Raj (rule) over India.

2017-12-14 02:38:55 -0600 answered a question My family makes me cut my hair. What should I do?

One of the reasons in which why Sikhism teaches us not to cut our hair is because we need to reach a stage where looks do not matter. Being happy in our natural bodies and accepting the way in which God made us is one of the ways to achieve self-actualisation.

If you do feel like you wish to commit to Sikhi whole heartedly then maybe you try talking to your mother about the way you feel. In terms of split ends, it is natural to get them, your hair renews and grows all the time. There are other ways in which you can take care of your hair to prevent this from happening like not brushing wet hair, excessive use of heat tools i.e. hair dryers etc. It is also important to note that although there is a consensus about keeping bodily hair and it being unhygienic this is simply untrue. It is important to clean your body properly or it is unhygienic regardless of whether you have body hair.

If you wish to follow this path you should feel confident enough to make the right decision for you. If you do not feel like you can make a proper decision just yet there is no need to rush; you can take things slowly and when you truly feel that you want to follow the Sikh lifestyle you will know yourself what do next.
