  1. If there is one thing that draws people to Sikhism it is YOGA. Lets take a look at the most successful Sikh missionaries in the west. Yogi Bhajan - His name sounds half like yoga. Just a coincidence. But this guys method was simple. First start up classes on yoga. He knew the west is obsessed with the whole yoga thing. Next slowly bring them to Sikhism. So why dont we start doing something similar to this? Obviously we will have our own model. There will not be any kind of 3ho setup. It will be purely 100% Sikh. But first we have to get them interested in the first place. It is evi
  2. Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh What is the difference between Taksali and Normal Kashere. I would be very grateful if someone could awnser me
  3. A great book in English giving counterpoints to arguments made by Hindus - http://discoversikhism.com/sikh_library/english/sikhs_we_are_not_hindus.html Also if anyone wants to share any other arguments made by others we can give counterpoints if needed.
  4. Why are so many people against it nowadays? I dont see much controversial about this, other than if some people claim that this is the only way to recite complete swaroop Guru Sahib, or those who say it "enhances" the effect of shabad which would imply that akhand paath is inferior. Unless someone is paying a paathi to do one for something in particular (same thing happens with akhand paaths) and they dont even listen to it and thus treat sri guru granth sahib as a wish genie of mantras; otherwise I dont anything offensive if a person does it themselves or at least with shardaa. Why do some pe
  5. Can someone help me find out where these swaiye are in sri dasam granth, found a interesting article quoting and claiming bhai daya singh ji pyares rehitnama to refer to these along with sravag shabad, dinan ki pritpal, etc. Most of these commonly recited swaiye are present in sri akaal ustat so if anyone can find these two before, please provide feedback on this forum waheguru jio.
  6. How did the singh sabha movement converted so many people into sikhi? I have thought abt it various times and have heard from many people that singh sabha movement helped to get many people into sikhi.
  7. Very informative video from sikh vichar, using Gurbani to understand Sikhi. Admin Note: Sorry, we have to remove your posted video as he is known Anti-Dasam bani.
  8. Waheguru ji, this might be my first question on here, but I always feel weird skipping 85% of Anand Sahib during rehraas. Is it okay to include those 34 pauris when I do rehraas? (I have done this a few times before). I am aware that several sampardayi include more and more dasam bani, but chhota anand sahib is something every dal and sampardayi agrees on (as far as this agianee is aware of) so I am not sure whether it is okay for me to bring this up or do on a personal basis either.
  9. according to gurbilas patshahi dasvin by koer singh, there were 25 mukte after the panj pyare, can anyone find their names? I think I had their names but I cant seem to find them anywhere there is one version of kesar singh chibber that has fourteen i think according to sikhiwiki and most scholar name only 5 mukte while on the topic, can anyone confirm whether the five original nirmala were amritdhari or not nowadays many chose not to become so and many do
  10. Why some Amritdhari Don't Eat/drink Food /water With Non Amritdhari sikhs ? + I have heard Many Nihungs Don't even Eat food if Some Non Amritdhari Made it.. Why They Follow This Rehit ? And Who Started it ? Bhai Kanhiya Ji Was Sehajdari sikh Who Gave Water to Khalsa Singhs Shaitan Gangu was Cook who made Food For Sikhs
  11. ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫ਼ਤਹਿ This isn’t a promotion but I’ve been following the Sikhi Forums online and loved them. I’ve always looked for a platform which allows sangat to connect. I came across Discord and I didn’t think my effort of creating a space for the Sikh community would go far but within 5 days it gained 300 members so I wanted to invite some of those interested . Platform is to further extend the reach of Sikhi so we can spread and raise awareness of the ancient knowledge passed down by our Gurus, warriors, saints, and scholars. This server is part of my e

  13. Hi, I felt out with someone when going through really bad depression and anxiety and grew to care about this person. I wanted to know would praying for this rift to be healed attachment? Reason I ask is over the years I've been through a lot of hurt and now at times feel like God doesnt care about me and I dont deserve to be saved/happy and I feel by this rift being healed it would feel like I can move forward and think more positively/clearly because I constantly feel broken. I appreciate any responses in advance. Thank you
  14. Since people here have a problem with me stating the truth about monay, forget about me. Here you can listen to what Sant Ji has to say about monay. Are you going to accuse him of being "divisive" and "judgmental"? Or chastise him for "hating on Sikhs with haircuts"? Will you continue to heap praise on clowns like Deep Sidhu who pretend to hold him in high regard but take time out of every day of their lives to shave? Will you finally realize that monay with khanda tattoos and monay posting sant ji's photos on their social media pages are shameless and spineless?
  15. I know this topic has been addressed before (see here) but I was wondering if anyone has anymore knowledge to share about the 4 yugs. I was wondering how this would fit with modern day science. If anyone also has any videos or books on this subject, please share Bhul Chuk Maaf

    Sahejdhari

    Hi there seems to be this idea that sikhi is for only for keshdaris or amritdharis. that if you are a sahejdhari you have at somepoint become amritdhari in order to be religous. keshdharies /amritdharis promote this idea heavily and when i was younger i thought it was true. but now, after years of study of SGGS, I don't think this is true. alot of sahejidharis don't want to keep kesh and still maintain complete faith in SGGS. don't think you have to keep kesh if you don't want to. don't do those things if they are not in your heart. just wanted to give this message
  18. Latest research as of 2019 and 2020 showed Sikhism is the fastest growing religion in Australia and new Zealand. A concentrated effort should be made to make these two countries a hub of Sikhi. Canada also has a growing Sikh population though not officially recognised it is growing fast too. Pakistan should be our kaums number one target for secret conversions it would be beautiful to see west punjab once the centre of Sikh power of maharajah ranjit singhs kingdom having a majority Sikh population. And besides the more pakistani's that are converted to Sikhi the more stable the future of Sikhs
  19. Sikhism now an official religion in Austria TNN | Dec 28, 2020, 07.20 PM IST AMRITSAR: Sikhs of Austria will now be able to use Singh and Kaur after their forename, mention Sikhism as their religion, and register themselves as Sikhs after the Sikh religion was officially registered by the Austrian government. While talking to TOI over the phone from Vienna on Monday, Jatinder Singh Bajwa, secretary Gurdwara Guru Nanak Dev Ji Parkash, 22nd District, Vienna, said now the Sikhs and their children would be able to use Singh and Kaur after thei

    Respect for Elders

    I think that a firm concept in every world dharam is respect for elders. It is also the baseline value on which all civil and peaceful societies and cultres are built. When there is respect for elders, I think, the society goes to hell. And this is what I am increasingly witnessing in capitalistic societies, and the sikh people in them (not just the youth). What does respect for elders mean? It means putting them at the top as the authority, not disrepecting them, but showing them consideration and obedience. So who are these elders?: 1. You parents. After God and Gur
  21. Hi, This has probably been discussed before but it's something I can't really wrap my head around. I'm a singh with full beard and have cousins who are the same, we are finding it difficult to find Sikh girls as life partners. The ones I've been introduced to have a problem with me not cutting my beard and being vegetarian etc... few have asked me if I would cut my beard etc... this coming from supposedly Sikh girls and it's quite disgraceful. I've had more interest from girls who are not Sikh...i.e Gujarati, English girls etc.. who don't seem to care about me being a full singh, it
  22. I recently played the new assasins creed game and it is about vikings and I was wondering what you think the Sikhi perspective is on Norse mythology? I don't think there is any reference to Norse mythology in any of the Sikh Granths. Do yuu think that Norse Gods are real and Asgard also Vallhala? I think most Sikh people probably think Norse mythology is fake but believe in Hindu Mythology.
  23. There doesn't appear to be any decent platforms for meeting people these days and no one seems willing to suggest people. Where are we supposed to begin?

    Sikhi around the world

    I wonder if we can work together to produce a sort of idea of what Sikhi is like in various countries around world. Especially out of india. Things like - how much sangat seem serious about sikhi - regular gurdwara, Sikhi saroop etc - youth interest in sikhi - availability to learn gurmukhi, santhiya, kirtan, gatka etc - amount of community engagements like nagar kirtan, hola mahala gathering, major yearly smagms, sikhi camps - any places doing especially good job keeping sikhi alive we can learn ideas from?
