Respecting tradition can keep you mentally safe............

The excessive use of cannabis is forbidden in the Nihang Maryada, where only a pinch was used, to aid digestion. However some people, become Bhangars, take it on another level. They scar themselves mentally for life, and encourage other people to take ever increasing amounts of Bhang. Most people who have a high tolerance to Cannabis Sattiva use opium regularly.

Those people who take too much cannabis get erectile dysfunction, mood swings, paranoia, narcissistic symptoms, under achieve, drop out from education, lie, cheat, decieve, look for free roti, steal from the sangat, manipulate people, free loaf, and become self obssessed.......

Some of them suddenly become reformed and turn into "Gurmukhs". Where they continue to get free roti, beds, money, attention, ............
Nihangs also do Jhakta, but they do not get sick gratification from killing animals. A person who treats jhatka and degh as a game, is already dead. It is better for a person with this type of mindset to leave the Panth and detoxify their minds and bodies, or better still not enlist in the first place.

Narcissistic personality disorder is a condition characterized by an inflated sense of self-importance, need for admiration, extreme self-involvement, and lack of empathy for others. Individuals with this disorder are usually arrogantly self-assured and confident. They expect to be noticed as superior.

It is difficult to recognize a narcissist because he (or she) spends all of his time acting, protecting his ego by presenting to the world a false image of himself. Consequently he becomes a master of deceit. But it is extremely important to be able to recognize people whose behavior is detrimental to their organization's performance.
A narcissist is not capable of putting the organization's needs before his or her own needs.Ref
Researchers have found that a narcissist reacts much more emotionally than a non-narcissist, sometimes with "narcissistic rage" when his (or her) ego is threatened.
Because of a propensity to internalize failure, the narcissist's emotional response to failure is to feel shame, as opposed to guilt felt by people without the disorder. So in order to avoid shame, which the narcissist feels must be avoided at all costs, he externalizes blame for negative events. Ref As he feels someone must be guilty, he almost always attributes blame to others. Only when his self-esteem is particularly high, perhaps through some positive feedback he has engineered, does he accept blame, and only then if it can be seen as a magnanimous gesture.
A narcissist is someone who is overtly or subtly arrogant, exhibitionistic, vain, manipulative, and greedy for admiration. Narcissistic rage, character assassination and projection are some of the overt ways in which the narcissist expresses himself.
The denial of remorse and gratitude by the narcissist are two of the more subtle ways used to protect an internal sense of grandiosity. An example of a narcissist's ability to be subtle might be when he arrives late for a meeting. Rather than offer a sincere apology, he may blame someone else for keeping him talking, thus externalizing the fault ("It's not my fault") and maintaining his sense of grandiosity.
Despite tending to be exhibitionistic, it is very rare to hear a narcissist brag or boast. Instead, he tends to 'drop' information in the form of an ostensibly ordinary matter-of-fact report, which appears to be intended to elicit admiration without asking for it. For example, rather than say, "I was so please to meet our CEO, Peter Smith", he will casually allude to "...lunch with Peter", in a way that induces a sense of distance and inferiority in the recipient of the information; again maintaining his sense of grandiosity.

Here are a few pointers that may help you identify one:

Their lack of empathy colours everything they do. They may say, "How are you?" when you meet, but they are working from memory. They are not interested in how you are.
Virtually all of their ideas or ways of behaving in a given situation are taken from others, people they know and perhaps think of as an authority (mirroring).
Their sense of self-importance and lack of empathy means that they will often interrupt the conversations of others.
They expect others to do the day-to-day chores as they feel too important to waste their time on common things.
Listen for the constant use of "I", "me" and "my" when they talk.
They very rarely talk about their inner life, for example their memories and dreams.
They feel that the rules at work don't apply to them.
They will always cheat whenever they think they can get away with it.
If you share workload with them expect to do the lion's share yourself.
They love to delegate work or projects, then interfere by micro-managing it. If it goes well, they take the credit, if it goes badly they blame the person they delegated it to.
There tends to be higher levels of stress with people who work with or interact with a narcissist, which in turn increases absenteeism and staff turnover.
They get impatient and restless when the topic of discussion is about someone else, and not about them.

Not refering to any particular religion or sect here, but generally, respecting tradition doesn't mean acknowledging every self-proclaimed 'traditional' cult that happens to come along with its 'authentic', 'original' doctrines. Disrespecting so-called 'tradition' is often much more healthy.
