Singh Ji

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Well, basically I was born in a typical Punjabi family. My dad’s a mona, clean shaven and all that. My Mum wasn't interested in religion that much. I used to have kesh but cut it at a young age, don’t know why, I think my parents got it cut. I was also a mona. I wasn’t really interested in Sikhi either, although my family weren’t religious my bibi was amritdhari etc....she used to do loads of seva at gurdwara and was walking 'on that path'.

She used stay at gurdwara most of the time doing seva etc.. So I never really got the chance to ask her anything, or she never got the chance to tell me anything. Actually now that I think about it my bibi was really the only one in the whole family who was religious, but then she passed away.

I used to have bad sangat as well.....Used to hang out with sullai all the time at school, and even got suspended coz of just plain 'dossing' around with me paki mates. They used to tell me so much stuff about Islam etc....And the funny thing is that I believed most of it and didn’t know nothing about Sikhi. So basically, that was that. After a couple of years there was the first ever annual camp at Singh Sabha Gurdwara. I wanted to go and find out about Sikhi, and what it’s all about, and just changed my life forever. A chardikala Singh (who I will keep gupt) asked us, who’s proud to be sikh?, obviously we all put our hands up....then he said, how can u be proud of being Sikh when u don’t even look like one (hhaha) that really struck me.

So, most of my Sikhi at that time was learnt at the camp, at the camp they were looking at Bhai Rama Singh’s book 'in search of the true guru'.....they passed the book around and told us about the pictures which showed bhai sahib’s vision of heaven and hell, this really got to me. So, I wanted to buy that book....but couldn’t coz I didn’t have any money on me.

Luckily my cousin was at the camp and he bought it and along with it he also bought bhai randhir singh’s autobiography. I didn’t know he bought these until a few months (I think) after when I went to his house, he showed me them. He was also a mona and is currently keeping his kesh. Anyhow.......he asked me if I wanted to borrow any of them. So I obviously borrowed the bhai rama singh book.

He said I could borrow bhai randhir singh’s if I wanted but I thought naa forget point, I never heard of the geeza.

So I took and read bhai rama singh’s book fairly was so wonderful and it also changed me from the inside. Then I decided to read bhai sahib randhir singh’s autobiography. And it was actually that book which changed my entire life from the inside. So after this I was thirsty for more Sikhi....I just used to read and read loads of Sikhi books. I actually never practiced Sikhi though.

One day I decided to keep my kes and become a Singh. I started doing Japji sahib, rehraas sahib and keertan sohila daily, I noticed a BIG spiritual change. But then I got really lazy and couldn’t be bothered doing them no more. I used to wear a patka and stuff.......I used to go to a lot of local camps, that got me more interested in knowledge of Sikhi became massive with gurus kirpa.

I really really got interested in Sikhi and couldn’t live without it for a moment. I got into big discussions about small but important things like wearing dastaar and I started wearing dastaar and learnt keski is a kakkar. So after that i never took off my keski and didnt go outside without a proper dastaar on.

Then a sant from Nanaksar came with his phat jatha, really inspiring.....I learnt one of the most important things from him that I can never forget, it is the respect to Guru Granth Sahib.......they showed sooooooooooo much respect man. From this my love of Sikhi increased day by day.

When I left school I got out of bad sangat of musalmaans. And started to chill with the proper saadh sangat. Guru Nai Kirpa keetee. Now I try to keep sangat, rehat, and kakkars......Guru Kirpa Karai I will take amrit in the following years.

Naam Is the MOST important thing in the world, and is the only thing that can help you in kaljug.
