My story isn't that spectacular, but hear goes. I used to be in a wrong crowd and all my priorities were mixed up. My family is a bit messed, and although I have one of the best moms in the world, my dad is the total opposite of what a sikh should be like.
Well, I used to be in the wrong crowd from the beginning, for some reason i always found it easier to get along with those kind of people. and i went to a school which is known for its bad sangat. I used to do dumb stuff like skip dchool and go places and drink and stuff, and cut my hair,even though i knew it would break my mother's heart.
then when i was in grade ten, i got really deppressed and started thinking of suicide and stuff. I've heard from people that Sukhmani Sahib takes away deppression, and also read that Bhai Rama Singh Ji got into sikhi through Sukhmani Saib, so i started doing it a bit.
but i still wasn't interested in amrit shucking or anything, but we used to go to simran and the keertans becuase guru ji did kirpa on me by blessing me with sadh sangat of gur sikhs.
the day i took amrit, i just woke up and felt like wearing a keski that day. it was weird cuz the day before i had plucked my eyebrows. :) and then that night was the smaagam rainsbayee and I took amrit, with guru ji's kirpa. I had not even thought about taking amrit like the day before, it just happened.
