Following Sikhism

Recommended Posts

Guest Solidus

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?

Living life as a Sikh comes natural and the only way worth living if you love the Guru. Don't force yourself to live something you don't love yet(maybe you never will).

If you become Khalsa, it's mandatory to never cut any of your hair. Not all Sikhs are Khalsa, though.

Sikhi doesn't prohibit meat eating. Sikhi teaches you to not become attached to the pleasures of food. Eat healthy, eat little, and don't let these pleasures distract you from God. A religious/spiritual person doesn't necessarily like or dislike food. The pleasure of food just becomes completely irrelevant to a person who loves God or lives a spiritual life.

Sikhs believe that there is goodness in every religion, so do Hindus, Jews, Christians, Muslims, go to heaven as well?

Sikhs believe there is goodness in every person; we couldn't care less about other religions. How you use this life is important. The labels we attach to this body of dust does not matter to God. A Sikh, however, only sees life worth living with the Guru.

I suggest you read these books to understand Sikhi. They're not very long and I imagine they would be a joy to read for any spiritual person.

Following Sikhi is something that goes slowly, (for most of your questions the person above answered them), take it slowly, but don't leave Guru Sahib if you want to pick the Sikh Path. Heaven and Hell are temporary.

    • how do we know how far it has changed from what Allah revealed , UTHman destroyed all written copies and the warriors who had memorised had been killed or died by that time ? Then qureshi  changed it to make themselves as higher than regular folks as only able to become imams/sheikhs . We know that the Jewish faith was compromised by behaviours of David, Solomon and the priestly caste , including pagan faith ideas , The temple was destroyed because they started going away from serving Elohim  and doing idol worship. , Jesus heard the word but his followers changed it to established the Roman church to transform the empires appearence .They also introduced a priest class and harsh rules against women , when Jesus had female parchariks . Lakshman was also a paapi because he disfigures Ravan's sister by cutting off her nose , so much for not looking at a female's face. He also criticises Ram for accepting the jhoota ber from the poor woman . The treatment of women in mahabharat is disgusting  , Khrishna was watching women's bathing , stealing their clothes for what reason? kaam of course . where the haumai is fed in a priest class the faith will become deformed by their greed , mediaval churches taught eternal hellfire to scare money out of the poor and rich alike . Sikhi was written directly over 230years and nurtured by Guru Sahiban themselves , no milavat , no priests only gursikhs doing sewa, that also open to Females .
    • teji bachan , Amitabh's mum was his plaything also , he was the result that's why Nehru got her married to a poet Mr  Bachan to hide the truth . That is why Mama Amitabh got so riled up when she died
    • Which tagore  rabinder nath?  Yh I read about her sleeping with white men as well     she really took after her father , nehru was sleeping with mountbattens wife   
    • That's true    it's why I stopped cutting my dhari   I read a lot about how sikhs were tortured in punjab back in the 80s and 90s and how 1000s "disappeared"  majority of them were sikhs with kesh and dhari  they were tortured because of their sikhi and sikh appearance, so I thought to myself why should I look like them corrupt governments want me to look like, a mona,   so I stopped trimming my beard     I dont like submitting to people
