    Natural order

    In Christianity there is a concept called the natural order. It states that God is over man, man is over woman and woman over children. It basically sets the man as the head of the house. Is there such a concept in Sikhism?

    Faith

    Hi, I am a born Sikh, but the problem Is that my faith on sikhi is wavering. I keep thinking of other religions, like Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. I think it's the fear of hell. I don't know how to explain to but I think its seeing other people of other faiths being so confident in their religion unlike me with sikhi. Any help would be good, I don't like that I feel like this.

  4. I am a 28 year old Sikh girl. I used to drink alcohol but I quit, I used to eat meat but I quit. I feel bad eating animals now and I know in our religion it’s preferred I don’t eat meat. I have never ever treated someone unequally or have had ego problems. I do my work honestly and help the community. I have a soft heart. I just really regret some decisions I made before which makes me feel like I’ll be put in an endless cycle again. I lost my virginity before marriage and I’ve been regretting it everyday. I don’t know how I can make up for this or what I can do to better practice my religion.
  5. Does anyone so research any other religion? Currently looking at Mithraism , basically same as christianity
  6. I've always wondered, what happens to people of other faiths? I'm not talking about someone leaving Sikhi for another religion, more like someone who was born into another religion and has followed that, and never even knew much about other religions. Compared to other religions, Sikhi is small, so what happens to people who never even learn that this exists? Just a question that I thought would be interesting.
  7. Why are Deras seeing so much success in Punjab? My family particularly has been going to a small dera for generations and having recently gone back to Punjab, I've seen so much anti-gurmat things at these kind of places. I especially noticed that the Radha Soami dera leader has immense influence in the Doaba region. I see his photo in every other house/shop. Is there rise in power correlated to Sikhi getting weaker? Are there any ways to combat Deras in a non-Taliban approach? Lol. Is there a way to make the people understand and critically think why their supporting these Deras rather than go
  8. I got married to a sikh man. But I was not happy woth this marriage. I was in love with someone else, and I still am. I also cheated on my “husband” with someone else. Also before the marriage and after marriage. I dont want to make my family unhappy. I would sacrifice my own happiness for my family. Thats what I am doing now. Is it a sin to stay with my husband even if i am unhappy? And will Rabh ji forgive me if I always pray and do bhaani? And also if I become a true sikh and do amrit ? Also I will stay with my husband but I will be really unhappy. Will Rabh forgive me? And how do I know?
  9. I got married a while ago. Since that i have been struggling a lot. Is it really true that if you divorce, you are not a sikh? I have to say i made a big mistake before the marriage. I cant lie and stay with him. I have a deep depression, cry always, sometimes i struggle to breath, many times I had to go to the hospital. If I had to stay with him, i would be really sad and not happy. And I wouldnt be able to give him what he needs. What do you think? What does Guru say?
  10. The Honorable Lord Krishna: A Prophet Of Allah Hindus worldwide will soon observe Krishna Janmashtami, a celebration of Lord Krishna’s birth. While many recognize the differences between Islam and Hinduism, few may appreciate that according to Islamic principles and Prophet Muhammad, Lord Krishna was a true Prophet of God. The obvious question that emerges is that if the same God sent Lord Krishna and Prophet Muhammad, why do Islam and Hinduism have notable theological differences? Simply put, Islam only argues that the original core teachings of Hinduism and Is

    negativity

    Hi from personal experience, I find a lot of negativity amongst people. (in fact, you can see a lot from just scanning this forum). an important part of religious outlook, of an outlook of life, is joy. we should reject all negativity from our minds, which is ungodly. Sikhs of old have encouraged an ethos of "Chardi Kala"- which i translate as 'the power of optimism/rising up", to *always* be in high spirits, even when faced with change, poverty, torture etc negative thoughts and emotions are like illness- they may make a person feel dull, down, weak. optimism does the o
  12. Hello. My Indian Jatt Sikh boyfriend proposed last month. I accepted. We're very much inlove. I've been trying to look up how mixed race/mixed religions combine their 'ideals & traditions'. I'm a White British atheist but have always wanted the traditional white dress. I also love the Sikh weddings, and of course will be having a very traditional Sikh wedding. I've seen that some people, through YouTube videos, have 2 marriage ceremonies... one Sikh and one non-religious/very western... is this a pretty common option, to have both? Is there not a way to put aspects of my dream we

    Too many problems

    Hi so i am a teenage girl that feels nothing towards sikhs. However two years ago i did have a bit of a connection with sikhi and wanted to take amrit,but I didn't. And now i can't feel any prem, I feel like maybe its because I think Sikhi is restricting because i like cutting my hair, it makes a confident person and i enjoy it and i don't understand the point of keeping res no mater how many times someone has said to me. I want to feel that prem for maharaja but I am doubting everything. Like i am leaning towards Christianity and I don't like the fact that I am. But I feel like i am leaning t

  16. Hello everyone, As the title of the thread suggests, I am currently exploring Sikhi as well as other religious beliefs (including Buddhism and Radha Soami, though I have issues with following a human master). I come from a Christian background, but I would not describe my beliefs as being particularly Christian, as I believe in an all-pervading God who is impersonal, and I believe in systems such as reincarnation and karma. So, I have many questions about Sikhi as I am on my search, and I was hoping that you all might be able to answer some questions for me. None of these questions are mea

    Following Sikhism

    I have an interest in Sikhs and the Punjab. After starting to study it, I have the impression that following Sikhism is so impractical and difficult. Could you guys answer some questions? Is it mandatory for all Sikhs to never cut any of their hair, meaning its a sin if they do? People eat meat for the taste, how can one eat something and not like or dislike the taste of it? Sikhs believe that there is goodness in every religion, so do Hindus, Jews, Christians, Muslims, go to heaven as well? or is it only Sikhs?
  19. The Future of World Religions: Population Growth Projections, 2010-2050 Why Muslims Are Rising Fastest and the Unaffiliated Are Shrinking as a Share of the World’s Population The religious profile of the world is rapidly changing, driven primarily by differences in fertility rates and the size of youth populations among the world’s major religions, as well as by people switching faiths. Over the next four decades, Christians will remain the largest religious group, but Islam will grow faster than any other major religion. If current trends continue, by 2050 … The number of Muslims will nearl
  20. I think the bottom line is, people wanting to join religion these days is just the same reason people join gangs, they want to defend their beliefs with the option of violence, people who have grown up in fear or wanting protection seek out these groups to become protected. Sikhism is not a violent religion, we do not go out of our way to inflict pain or intimidation, only provoked or in danger may we think about something like that and because of that people feel they need to leave. These days people, whether it be in religion, careers, gangs, organisations all want to be part of a group, to
