Sikh religion and dating
Anand Karaj Punjabi: The four laavaan hymns which take place during the ceremony were composed by his successor, Guru Ram Das. In a recent verdict of the Sri Akal Takht Sahib, i. Any Amritdhari baptized Sikh may perform the marriage ceremony. Pakistan declared that it would pass the Sikh Anand Marriage Act in and a Draft was prepared, but this Draft Act was never passed. The following are other important points that must be adhered to by the Sikh couple and their families:.

Just post your opinions, also give you view on amritdhari youth and dating. Approriate or not? Sat Sri Akal jee, Weerjee, i think this is an important question, and I think in modern times like these, dating and related activities are common.
Our guruji, also propogate to lead a family life and still be unattached. Tough it sounds, but that is what self discipline all about. I think we indulge in dating to find the person with we really click with, to find out who's the right one. As long as it is interacting and talking to a person, there shouldn't be any problems. I don't think sikhi allow or encourage multiple sexual relationships. That would be giving in to kam. And I think dating just for fun is simply not encouraged.
I don't know but sikhism propogates, devoting yourself completely to God, and not giving into temptations. At the end of the day, I think just do what you think is right. And trust me, YOU yourself know what's right. Thas about it I guess. Hardkaur SPNer. Joined Jan 31, Messages 22 Likes 2. Wow sikh youth and dating??? I personally think that sikhs dating does not tie into religon as it does with culture.
As for an Amritari dating I don't think that theres anything wrong with that since guruji said that everyone should live a married life, but I don't think I know of any Amritaris that had a love marriage, except for those that had a love marriage and became amritari afterwards. PS I just wanted to ask if any of you know if any of the sikh gurus had love marriages, since this kind of topic is talked about much.

Our Guru's gives us enough freedom to learn and keep adapting to new circumstance. Dating is after all about finding a life partner for one self. It is applicable to both boys and girls to amrithdaris and non amritdhari I guess. So I guess one could go ahead with dating as it would help us in setting up a family life which our Gurus emphsised a lot. Hukum Kaur SPNer.
Where their is insicurity, their is a lack of trust in God. For where their is God thier is no insicurity. It is one of the many human challanges to be afraid of being alone, but when it comes to Love, on must let go and let God. All you can do is wait for the Master Plan to unravel your destiny and in the meantime one must stay receptive to the sighns. Sikhism is such a clear path that it would be difficult to make a life with someone who didnt know what a lungar line was, but in no way does that mean this person should be dissasociated with.
If anything, they need the guidance of Sikhi. And since a teacher should never date his or her student, that translates into dating either only a sikh person, or dating one who is self motivated and learning the path to sikhi. Patience is the red carpet to God. Simply put, dating a lot of people or one takes too much energy. Looking foreward to things sets one up for dissapointment. It is a rare person who can date around and maintain neutrality. Satisfied with all that God dishes out, one not need be dissapointed by a man or woman's actions even if they hurt you or let you down.
The energy involved in connecting with another human on that level is very intese and one needs to really know themselves and know God. So untill you know what it is you want and untill you can filter maya to listen to Gods word, then one is not ready to date. Ironicaly, I have learned this by dateing. BhagatSingh SPNer. Joined Apr 25, Messages 2, Likes 1, Rajwinder Writer. Joined May 3, Messages 73 Likes Well Dating in now a days time has got some diff meaning I cant understand how many poeple use to go to dates 20 years back in punjab??
Arent they happy or is it like there hormones are dead?? What I feel is things around us are so distracting that people start thinking of things and even generating logics behind those things which are not that imp as we think. Take for ex Sex, God made woman and we people create "Pamila Anderson". What we are doing here is " Raising a topic and then see how Sikhism fits in to it " Instead of that we should see what sikhism is and how we can mould things in todays world in to it" I think our Gurus who were having such a broad and far sighted vision must have some thougts in mind before writting Guru Granth sahib.
So concluding " Dating is not bad but it is the intentions with which we go for a date". Like stated above.. So in my humble opinion dating is wrong. Its good for a girl and a guy to be friends but nothing more, specially at an age where hormones are going all over the place. Waheguru ji ka khalsa, Waheguru ji ki fateh. Sinister SPNer. You cant ban the lovin, its hard to meet someone the right person if ur not dating. But hey, if your happy with an arranged marriage that cool too.
Personal choice i guess. Dating is not Bad until and unless it is restricted to knowing a person rather than having some sexual fun because we have right to chose our partners but at the same time we should keep in mind that we have to follow our Guru Jis teachings Marriage is something very important as it is a ceremony in which we decide to devote our selves to a single person and promise to be faithful in all respects So dating for knowing someone is good as we are going to give everything which is ours to that person and vice-versa Thats totally fine Like is said before, it is the physical aspect of dating that is wrong.
For me being a teen, i have had my share in liking people and what not, but i do not understand why people would date at the age of 15,16, or even like 17, 18 At that age you are not looking for a long term relationship ie marriage. So what is the point? Personally, when i think of dating Joined Nov 22, Messages 8 Likes 1. It seems okay to date to me Jamdhoot SPNer. Joined Nov 27, Messages 2 Likes 0.

Sikh Youth And Dating
One caller named Jasminder asserts that when Param came down, it became more like a comedy show and less like a dating show given how the women and audience reacted. Something about this discussion hit home for me. Back in , I discussed some of my challenges when it came to dating and insecurity in my post about dharis: These are the messages we get from our peers and from the media every day. So naturally I assumed it was highly unlikely that any of my female classmates would ever be interested in dating someone like me.

Department of Psychiatry, M. Medical College and Hospital, M. Sikhism is a relatively young religion, with Guru Granth Sahib as its key religious text. This text describes emotions in everyday life, such as happiness, sadness, anger, hatred, and also more serious mental health issues such as depression and psychosis. There are references to the causation of these emotional disturbances and also ways to get out of them. We studied both the Gurumukhi version and the English translation of the Guru Granth Sahib to understand what it had to say about depression, its henomenology, and religious prescriptions for recovery.
In order to have a Muslim marriage, the Nikkah , both man and women should be Muslim. In order to have a Christian wedding at a Church, most Christian Churches would expect the couple to be both Christian and some even attend Church to show commitment to the faith. The same goes for Jews. However, when it comes to Sikhs, it seems the media and outsiders feel it justified to criticise Sikhs for only allowing Sikhs to partake in the Sikh religious marriage ceremony in the Gurdwara. In recent years, the incidences of interfaith marriages i. Have relations with a Sikh of the Guru.
