About me

Lakhvir.jpg

I have lived in Kenya for about 25 years now but living in a land away from my spiritual home has in itself created that yearning and eager yearning to return. I work as a Graphic Designer and currently, Ill be honest – I hate my job. My mind is not in it. My mind is somewhere else, thinking of Sikhi all the time . . . Sikhi, Sikhi, Sikhi and I keep contemplating an escape and prayerfully beseeching Waheguru to take me away from here and place me in the midst of Panthic seva. I know no other desire, I so want to live my whole life in the service my Guru’s great Khalsa Panth. I’m alone in that dream right now . . . but who knows whose company I just may be blessed with to help realise our common goal – to reunite with our Waheguru . . .

We’re all on a journey, walking onward, back to our Source – our Creator, our Beloved Husband Lord. It’s a journey that anyone should be able to relate to. But we need to understand its essentials, lest we gather too much that would anchor us down. We need to make that progress, and fast, if you are desperate . . . at least I am. Who knows, if there is a tomorrow? But God, in His Infinite Mercy, is ever Gracious . . . Meharvaan, Sahib Mera Meharvaan . . . We need to jump on to this Bus and let the Guru drive you . . . simply enjoy the drive . . . the Destination is not too far, because to those who feel He is close, He most certainly is.

I usually subscribe to a number of inspirational e-newsletters, gatherng wisdom from across different faiths. To me, being a Sikh has given me peace of mind. In another post, I’ll write about what Sikhi means to me and what transformations it has brought into not only my own life, but into those with whom I have interacted with.

In an inspirational message I received in my mail this morning, it speaks of none the better about what exactly is in my mind right now . . .

‘If you won’t be better tomorrow than you were today, then what do you need tomorrow for?’
-Rebbe Nachman of Breslov

I say, my tomorrow has come. If WaheguruJi so wills, time to be better has come. No looking back now, I can see my Guru in the horizon, awaiting me with open arms . . .

    Vaheguru Jee Kaa Khalsa! Vaheguru Jee Kee Fateh!!

    Pyario, I was visiting a site (SaraiBookings) and I saw that you do website designs. The SikhiToTheMAX website is quite poor in terms of design. Would you be interested in doing a redesign? Please let me know about costs etc. At the moment it is used by around 60,000 users per month and it is about time it got a fresh look.

    Thanks for your time,
    Tarsem Singh

    Freedom and Leela, world music singers of Gurbani Kirtan, Gurmukhi Mantras and devotional chant music tour the globe singing their mesmerizing sounds to millions of listeners. They conduct kirtan chant seminars and workshops, and share their Gurbani Kirtan, and Bhakti music at concerts, centers and Sikh Gurudwaras.

    Lakhvir Singh ji,

    Waheguru ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh,

    I was deeply touched to read your comments above, because I found your thinking akin to mine. Similar thoughts keep on haunting my mind all the time. Some times I start pondering over our existence, our mission in life, If we are not able to unite with Waheguru in this Janam, then one would not be able to get another opportunity to unite with our lord Husband Waheguru.

    NIce that you, a true Gursikh is a websight designer, we have just entered into an export business and we feel an urgent need of a good website, but we dont’ know any sincere, person, all in the world are greedy people, thay demand huge money which we dont’ have. You are a true gursikh, and we hope that you will surely help a gursikh to make a good website. Please give me your mail id, so that we can dwell upon in length on matters related with sikhi. I have down loaded a plethora of literature from the internet, people turning to sikhi from western, african, european countries and I was stunned to read their comments about sikhi. They can be termed as the true sikhs, specially ladies. I have down loaded views of great philisophers, learned man from other religions, who have spoken with deep reverance for the sikhism and Guru Nanak Dev ji Maharaj. The Almighty Waheguru, till date has not sent any angel, Pagember or Guru on the earth as great as Shri Guru Nanak Dev ji Maharaj.

    Would like to have your remarks on my mail.

    Wishing you great success and blesings from Waheguru.

    Yours Sincerely,

    S.S Sekhon

    Veer Ji,

    you wrote “Ill be honest – I hate my job. My mind is not in it. My mind is somewhere else, thinking of Sikhi all the time”

    Sikhi is not merely thinking , Sikhi is doing. When your heart is in what you are doing, then you are being a true Sikh. When you accept that God has put you in the best time and place for your soul, then there is no “hating of your job”. All is joy, all is God. What you learnt in the Gurdwara you bring into your workplace, into your house. You make everything into one ..EK DRISHT ..seeing God in all, seeing Guru in all, all is seva, all is good when your mind accepts the Will of the Lord.

    May I humbly thank you for reminding me of the beauty strength and resilience of our peoples. I fear our art, architecture, literature and way of life is not shared by the whole community. Sites like this inspire and enrich all those whose roots are in the Punjab.

    We truly share an amazing history, I pray our people focus on all the good we have brought to the world and focus their energies on promoting our nobility through humility.

    Warm wishes of grace and prosperity

    hello,lakh
    I am at a major crossroad in my life.My past is very colourfull & dark (kalyug) in many ways & plagued with addictions.
    I have a big heart & enjoy helping others….and on a couple of occassions tryed to embrace SIKHI,but have been abandoned & dissapointed.Yet Guruji has spared me on many occassions FOR SOME BIG PURPOSE..I walk & breathe here in/on this illusion called EARTH.
    I believe that I am seeking for my guide,to help me at my last chance to embrace Sikhi/Life it self.
    I am not struggling/using any mood ultering substance(s) at this point in my life.
    I AM A WALKING MIRICALE….still alive,and willing to better my self and help other as well. When I first got clean (by a mainstream ex-motorcycle addicts),I stayed clean for approx 7yrs.Within that time frame was able to create a south asian/indo-canadian DRUG/ALCOHOL treatment/councilling clinic.This helped many and later this non-profit organization was also granted to be able to become a TEMPLE…..which I gave/transferred to a good cause as (SEVA).I have relapsed in addiction on a couple of incidents since.
    I BELIEVE I AM HERE ON BORROWED TIME…because once again I find myself freed,spared….in search of my GUIDE.My hair as been growing,glowing for only the second time in my life..due to this beautiful women in my life…
    THIS STORY IS LONG OF MINE and I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU OR ANYONE ELSE THAT MAY HELP ME OR WANT TO HEAR MY JOURNEY THUS FAR….

    Vaheguru ji ka khalsa,Vaheguru ji ki fateh,
    I saw your blog and feel the that sikh people are really on top of the world.We sikhs are doing remarkable jobs all over world.I proud of you .people know us but still they have doubt about our religion this because , lack of parchar of sikhi.Being an sikh we have to face a lot of problem ,i heard all the time same question from everybody ,why we keep our hair ,why we dont cut our hair.I am telling them GOD made us like this purposely like this to make diffrence of man and woman.But People are cutting there hairs and beared to look like a woman .Then explanation goest to formation of khalsa by Our Guru Gobind Singh.But what i need is solid/scientific reason of hairs we keep.Any way best regards and gud luck for your efforts to make this area to discuss with our sikh brothers and sisters.

    SSA Veer ji,

    By reading your post , i can see and feel your situation is like a fish who when remain out of water,thinks of water as the ultimate achieve. Gurbani has stated it and prooved it with many examples.

    I am deeply moved and very happy to see the sea of sikh brothers want to join for a nobel cause, bhai amritpal ji has done a great job by http://www.saraibooking.com. Many thank and salutes to sikhs like him who are doing seva. I use to do be part of jodaghar seva and i know what immense pleasure it gives.

    We need to carry the legacy of Gurus,saints and pass on them to new generation who is getting away from the path of sikhi.

      Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the unarcdppeeriated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I am deeply moved by your faith in SIKHI.As long as even one pooran sikh exists,the word will remain a place worth living.Sadly enough sikhs are a vanishing creed in the land of its origin.Waheguru grant SUMAT to us.

    The first picture is amazing.
    Would it be possible to get a high resolution of the 1st image?
