Sikh Research Institute has created a monopoly and this organization is continuously disgracing and misrepresenting the Sikh religion as a whole. It is time for this to stop. They charge hefty fees on everything from Sojhi books to attending their programs. This is not seva. This is a profit making business run by some crooks. These are self proclaimed Gursikhs who are simply out to make money off of the Sikh religion. Those who run the program are mean spirited, power hungry, and absolute hypocrites.

These people are attempting to change the Sikh religion through so called "authentic intellectual research." They have spread pro-meat ideology and because of this, many Gurmat camps, sikh conferences, and other sikhi related events are gladly serving meat at their programs. They even encourage Gurdwaras to serve meat in langar. This is just one example of how they are changing the religion as a matter of convenience. In addition, they have made changes to the ardass and preach all sorts of absurd philosophies never heard of before. WHAT A DISGRACE!! Their practices and intentions must be cross examined and carefully scruitinized. So far, they are making fool out of so many people.

First, Sikh Research Institute is a registered 501© NON-PROFIT educational organization. So any claims about it being a profit making business is false. Because Sikh Research Institute is a non-profit organization, its dealings and finances are all public information.

Second, I've attended a few Sikh Research Institute's programs in the past and the last thing that was always said is: "Please take whatever has been presented today as our limited understanding. Go back and do your own research. Develop your relationship with the Guru" So any claims about being "self-proclaimed Gursikhs" is false.

Third, Sikh Research Institute has pioneered Sikh Education for North America with projects that range from creating a standards based K-8 curriculum to creating different leadership programs for Sikh youth. They help establish and fund Sikh Scholarships at Harvard University, Panjab Digital Library (the only digital archive Sikhs have to preserve our history), the movie Widow Colony on 1984 programs, Rural Education projects in Panjab, etc. If these accomplishments are a "disgrace", then we should have more organizations that are "disgraced" by you for doing such great Seva.

If people have questions why not go to the source: www.sikhri.org or 2008 annual report: http://www.sikhri.org/downloads/AR2008.pdf

Please do some research before posting. Thanks.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
