Default What do you think about Sikhism ? - 11-09-2011, 02:22 PM

Sikhism is a monotheistic religion founded during the 15th century in the Punjab region, on the teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and ten successive Sikh Gurus (the last teaching being the holy scripture Guru Granth Sahib Ji). It is the fifth-largest organized religion in the world and one of the fastest-growing. This system of religious philosophy and expression has been traditionally known as the Gurmat (literally 'of the gurus'). Punjab of India is the only region in the world with a majority Sikh population.

The principal beliefs of Sikhi are faith and justice, in Waheguruórepresented by the phrase ik ōaṅkār, meaning one God. Sikhi advocates the pursuit of salvation through disciplined, personal meditation on the name and message of God. The followers of Sikhi are ordained to follow the teachings of the ten Sikh gurus, or enlightened leaders, as well as the holy scripture entitled the Gurū Granth Sāhib Ji, which, along with the writings of six of the ten Sikh Gurus, includes selected works of many devotees from diverse socio-economic and religious backgrounds. The text was decreed by Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth guru, as the final guru of the Sikh religion. Sikhi's traditions and teachings are associated with the history, society and culture of Punjab. Adherents of Sikhi are known as Sikhs (students or disciples) and number over 26 million across the world. Most Sikhs live in Punjab, India, although there is a significant Sikh diaspora. Until the Partition of India, millions of Sikhs lived in what is now Pakistani Punjab.

The Sikhs that I have known are decent people.
They aren't provocative but when provoked can defend themselves.
They adapt well to their society and contribute to their local communities.

In Southall, London many of the Sikhs can speak Pashto.



As for Sikhism itself, I don't really know much about it, never really cared that much to be honest.

Sikhism doesn't concern me so I don't think of it. I used to have a female friend who obeyed her hair in a different way than Muslims do but I dont know much else about the religion.




I am no bird, and no nest ensnares me.

why do u people grow out ur hair but not ur nails?


There are people today who think that admitting Godís absolute greatness decreases the value and importance of humans in the creation, as if God and mankind are rivals competing in greatness and power. Meanwhile I feel that whenever our perception of Godís greatness increases, with it we become greater, because we are the creation of a great God.

Seriously, could you try doing something other than spamming videos of that hack?
