What would you say are the big draws that you saw bringing non-sikh people come into Sikhi. What were their reasons and how can we capitalise on that so that we can create a solid foundation for others to share the same messages I would say the following: Meditation (naam simran) Yoga (even though it isn't part of Sikhi alot of new converts associate it with Sikhi and get drawn into Sikhi that way) Following a traditional way of life (strong emphasis on community cohesion and family values) Pluralistic teachings that reach out to everyone with emphasis to treat each other as equals Less commandments more guidance in Sikhi than abrahamic faiths Combination of the peaceful co-existence and yet martial teachings and traditions More emphasis on connecting with the creator than spending time chasing the materialist lifestyle
Anyone know where I can find stories of new sikhs. ie how them became Sikhs. I have seen a few videos but not alot of actual stories/articles ect. It would be great if you could post them here or give a link. Only one I can find at the moment is a English woman called aitken. But she seems a fiesty and hot tempered woman. lol... any others???
Two groups that immediately come to my mind are gays in north america (all abrahmic religions hate them with a passion but gays& lesbians do have spiritual hunger) and lower caste , extremely poor people in India . Sehajdhaaris are fine as I think thats the first pauri ... eventually they or their kids will evolve in gurmat enough to take up amrit.
