Why the present day Sikhs are lacking behind.
The fundamental reasons behind the lacking of most of the Sikhs are:
-Many people have too much ego, which Sikhism does not allow.
-Many people follow caste system, which Sikhism does not allow.
-Many ladies go for Fast, which Sikhism does not allow.
-Many people drink and take drugs, which Sikhism does not allow. Even tea or coffee and most of the cold drinks come in the category of mild intoxicants. Hence, Sikhism does not allow these also. This is the reason that most of the children will drink tea but not milk.
-We just do rituals regarding religion, which Gurbani does not allow.
-We read as a ritual but do not understand Gurbani and also do not apply it in our own life.
-We treat Guru Granth Sahib as a ritual Guru and not really as Jagat Jyot. In fact we are more followers of Saints and Deras and not of Guru Granth Sahib.
-We think our selves great by modifying and changing Gurbani. Guru Har Rai Sahib did not forgive his son. How the Guru will forgive us?
-Very rarely TRUE Gurbani is being recited in most of the programs.
-We waste too much money on marriages and parties.
-Many people believe in show business.
-Many people give money to the beggars but not to the needy.
-We rarely select good quality leaders in Gurdwaras or Politics.
-We appoint low quality and uneducated Granthis. The committee members want to rule over them. In many places the Granthis are ill-treated.
-We feel proud by talking in languages other than Punjabi.
-We teach other languages to our children but not Gurmukhi.
-We rerely study and analyse Sikh History.
If we ourselves go away from the GURU then how he can save us?
