Said by a good friend, I think it should be on a T-Shirt.

“Seriously, I’m not trying to be an asshole, but you should do some simran.”


FBB: Opinions?

It is a beard, Geordy. A fine, full, dignified beard. One which commands respect and projects thoughtfulness and dignity. Opinions?

The Story of Lincoln’s Beard

It is probably the most famous face, and certainly the most famous beard, in the history of the world. There are more portraits of it in existence than of any other face. Indeed, they outnumber the entire population of flesh-and-blood human beings who have ever lived onthe planet.

Sometimes it’s hard to not become a full-out font nerd. These images hit two of my favorite things, Fonts & Star Wars!

New Feature: Friday Beard Blogging!

Ladies and Gentleman, welcome to the newest feature of this blog: Friday Beard Blogging! Every Friday I’ll post up something all about beards and mustaches. Why you ask? Why Not!?? Beards are great!

Start of this with a great song by an Australian Band called The Beards! You guessed it, a band whose songs are all about beards! I present to you “If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard, You’ve Got Two Mums” (Slightly NSFW) Link and embedded below:

What keeps me doing Panthic Work

These days it’s really easy for me to tell other to go away, and that “I’m busy, sorry – no time”

But the reality is that as a Sikh it’s my duty to do panthic work. Right now the only thing that keeps me involved with Sikh Organizations is this paragraph from the Reht Maryada:

The concept of service is not confined to fanning the congregation, service to and in the Guru ka Langar etc. A Sikh’s entire life is a life of benevolent exertion. The most fruitful service is the service that secures the optimum good by minimal endeavour. That can be achieved through organised collective action. A Sikh has, for this reason, to fulfil his/her Panthic obligations (obligations as a member of the corporate entity, the Panth), even as he/she performs his/her individual duties.

(emphasis mine). This basically tells me that any seva I do should be the most efficient possible, and it seems obvious that to be efficient (and lazy) I should be doing it with others so that my efforts have the most effect. Honestly, even though I’m mostly burned out, this paragraph keeps me involved with Sehaj, The Sikh Coalition, and others.

What keeps you going?
