White Black Sikhs Converts


Recommended Posts

No offence but i find this topic inappropriate and contrary to the spirit of Guru Nanak Dev. It makes no difference what ethnic/cultural background a person comes from. Religion is the only thing which does not exist within the boundaries of countries, races, cultures etc it transcends all of these.

At my Gurdwara there is an entire family of 'White Sikhs'. Sikhism is a religion intended for all human-kind. It is not an exclusive 'club' for Punjabis.

I'm actually facinated how people can turn to a religion which they have no knowldge about,

I dunno how you can even say that... Of course they know about the religion or why else would they convert?

At one stage in your family line your ancestors converted to Sikhism. Didnt they know what they were adopting as their spiritual guide?

Sat Sri Akal:

Actually, people who embraced Sikhism (Amritdhari) know more about it than most of the people born into the Sikh religion.

When young, I had a chance to meet Satjeevan Singh Khalsa, who I believe is now a judge in New York. He described how he was introduced to Sikhism, how he started to keep his Kesh, cut them, felt very odd without them and started to keep them again. His knowledge about Sikhism was deep, and his approach to talking to kids about Sikhism was great and down to earth, partially because he had excellent speaking skills and spoke from a very practical level.

He also spoke at a Gurudwara which my dad had gone to, and there, he started out by saying "If Guru Nanak Sahib was around today, do you know what he would do? He would go onto the internet to spread his message." Very interesting speech and my dad was impressed by how far-sighted his vision was.

This is one example. Unfortunately, I have had the unfortunate expreience of also seeing two Caucaisan Sikhs on a TV court show trying to fight a case against each other. So you also have the not-so-good.

End conclusion: Must see each as an individual. They are like any other Sikh (Amritdhari) in that they believe in the same things, they follow the same guidelines and their objective is the same.

    • Was listening to Sant Ji's katha on youtube.  Sant ji stated apart from the traditional raags, there is nothing wrong if Kirtan is sung in other NON - Raags set up by our Guru Ji's.  His example: Think of poison in a bowl.  Drinking the poison then blaming the bowl is silly. The poison is bad not the bowl. Likewise, we will never call a bowl Amrit once it contains Amrit init. Sameway it's not the raags being good / bad... it's WHAT we put into those raags. How many times Kirtan was sung but on a track of sum Bollywood tune? It is happening in Gurudwara by Raagis! Youtube also has Kaweshri jatha singing history of 1984, on Dr Dre's - Still Dre track.  Rap instrumental/ Bolly tunes stand neutral. We can either put bad things and sing with our own remixes and lyrics... or we can recreate to sing Shabads of Gurbabi, kirtan and Sikh Prachaar over them. 
    • Everything in Gurbani points us towards the Atma. Atma and Parmatma are the same… Atama and Parmatma is the source that creates and causes everything… What have the following items got in common? A fan. A television. A fridge. A radio. A computer..? These things are powered by electricity. Without electricity these things are lifeless. It’s the electricity that causes these things to function… Atma is the source of energy that allows everything to happen.    without Atma, we are lifeless… Call this Atama RAGUNATH…call this Atma by any other name…the fact remains that it’s the life force energy… Dieties also have the same Atma as humans, but they still part of the creation, and not the creator…  
    • Hi I want to know who’s ragunath in gurbani Hindu claim this word appear for ram chandra if we read guru teg bahadur maharaj salok maharaj clearly rejecting ram gayo ravan geo but at the last pangti Kahu naanak īh bipaṭi mai tek ēyk ragɦunaaṭɦ ॥55॥ Says Nanak, in this calamity, the Lord alone is my support who is this ragunaath why would maharaj use ragunath as refrence for god?
    • Throughout history we have been tested and tried. We remained steadfast and resiliant. The events that took place in Punjab and outside of Punjab in the past years made it quite clear we are big players in the game which kept the world powers on edge. It started off with the drug pandemic in Punjab, to the uproar by Bhai Amritpal Singh to the Farmer's protest. Outside of Punjab the deaths of Avtar Singh Khanda (UK) and Hardeep Singh Nijjar (Canada) created a stir within our community. This was probably our first real opportunity to establish something but how quickly members of our own community forget history. We have been a threat to civilization in the past and this is probably what the world powers are concerned about. However, may we continue grow and learn through Gurbani and like Jaswant Singh Khalra said: 'May the spirit of equal rights Punjab continue to kindle'. 
    • This is why people used to get married earlier in puratan times. Think about it, nowadays you legit have to be brahmacharya at ages when you're supposed to be married and producing children, which historically speaking, is unprecedented outside of the Sants in Indic tradition.
