Kidda! Ok, well i m in love wit this gal, plus i know she is too. Even her sister says she like me. Anyway, she wont admit she likes me because of her father who is quite strict. You see, he told her from a young age, that he would find her a nice JATT boy. So she dont want to break his heart, she wants to set a good example 2 her younger sister. However her two older sisters are married by arranged methods. But if we re in love, caste shouldnt matter. You see, her father is already looking for boys for her, she already turned one down. I really love her, but she breaking my heart. We talk for a long time on the fone, when ever we can. Please talk to her for me???? Thanks

Dear One, there is no way I that I can say how wrong it is for a Sikh to be marrying according to caste. In this day and age, we really need to be allying according to the expansive principles of our 10 Gurus and the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. We must practice our principles of consciousness to help make this world a better place. This is the mission of our Sikh Dharma, to make this world a better place.

Your girlfriend should be very clear to her father, that she does not wish to be so narrow, that she wishes to follow the guidence of her Gurus. Perhaps her inspiration to her family will give you an oppportunity to meet her family as her choice for marriage. Pray to the Guru to give you the best possible outcome for your future happiness. Then accept His will with grace and gratitude.

God bless you and keep up.
