Quote of the Day

FIRST MEHL: From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married. Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come. When woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound. So why call her bad? From her, kings are born. From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one. O Nanak, only the True Lord is without a woman. That mouth which praises the Lord continually is blessed and beautiful. O Nanak, those faces shall be radiant in the Court of the True Lord. – Guru Nanak Dev Ji

    Now that there’s more freedom to move into and from Pakistan. Is there any interest (plans) in taking the Sangat(from the US) to Nankana Sahib?

    regarding SikhiWiki: Thank you!

    Yes! My parents went to visit close to 30 Gurudawara’s in Pakistan last year. There is a jatha going from the US this Nov.

    If anyone is interested in going I can get the information. The only catch is anyone interested in going needs to let the jatha organizers know by the end of this month.

    If anyone is interested you can email me at [email protected]. I will be more than happy to send over the information of the trip and contact #’s of people who went last year.

    "The mind is not softened by fasting or austerities. Nothing else is equal to worship of the Creator's Name." (Guru Nanak Dev, Ramkali, pg. 905)

    "The pilgrimage to shrines, fasting, cleanliness and self-mortification are not of any avail, nor are the rituals, religious ceremonies and hollow adoration's. Deliverance, O! Nanak! is in the devotional service of God. Through duality the mortal is engrossed in worldliness. (Guru Nanak, Sri Rag, pg. 75)

    well, it's not like you're forbidden to go to a gurudwara but know that you don't have to go anywhere to remember HIM and worship HIM…HE is everywhere maybe someone else can elaborate on this…

    i'm kinda distracted (at work) :)…

    Does anyone know the name of the Gurudawara that we are to visit before a certain age? I think the age is 40. I have heard that sikh’s must visit a certain Gurudawara in India. Does anyone know of this or the Gurudawara?

    pilgrimages are forbidden in sikhi…
    look into:
    Guru Nanak in Mecca (muslims’ place of pilgrimage),
    Guru Nanak in Ganga/Ganges river(hindus’ place of pilgrimage)
