Some 40 people converted to Sikhi in the presence of Jathedar of Sri Akal Takhat. The new converts came from 12 different countries. They recited the Mool Mantar (fundamental spell of Sikhi).

Sorry can’t post the link. You can find it by typing “foreign tourists are adopting Sikh Dharam”.

I don't think they even needed to recite Mool Mantar to become Sikh. There is no ritual to join Sikhi. 

As per Sikh Rehat Maryada (which was even approved by Akal Takth funnily enough) states that a Sikh is someone who believes in:

  • One Immortal Being 
  • Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak Dev to Guru Gobind Singh 
  • The Guru Granth Sahib 
  • The utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus 
  • The baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru, and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion, is a Sikh.

Gurbani states that a True Sikh is:

ਗੁਰ ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਕਾ ਜੋ ਸਿਖੁ ਅਖਾਏ ਸੁ ਭਲਕੇ ਉਠਿ ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਵੈ ॥ 

One who calls himself a Sikh of the Guru, the True Guru, shall rise in the early morning hours and meditate on the Lord's Name.

If those 40 people follow these requirements then they are Sikh.

That makes sense. I agree there no outward rituals in Sikhi.

That definition is so broad you could apply to a whole myriad of people. That maryada really needs to be tweaked .

U can't Convert to something that isn't a religion. 

The only religion is Truth. That's what the Gurus taught. No Hindu, No Muslim-Only One (Truth/ Sat).

    • let's be a bit more optimistic. Cinema has always played a very important role in the promotion of a language.
    • Punjabi language is in a continual downward spiral. Bhangra and crappy Punjabi comedy movies aren't going to change anything. What percentage of Hindu Punjabis want to be actors or singers? Less than 1%. Go to any big Punjabi city and you will see that pretty much all Punjabi Hindus speak in Hindi. The government need to make it compulsory in all schools and fine any school which tries to ban it.
    • Don't mind me, just going on about a bit of philosophy and my own thoughts here.  In the last era (Tretajug) Mahabharat took place. All humans were meant to be 3 times big than what the average human is today (let's just assume internet stuff is true) so 18ft tall. They had amazing strength like Bhim could lift an elephant or a few could lift mountains, shoot an arrow that'll go for miles! But maybe they were told, "In Kaljug humans will be no more than 7ft tall, faithless will be leaders, cohabitation will b common, 18 years plus will become parents and average age will be 100..." They must have thought "Hang on! Won't God get angry? Faithless leaders? People deceiving and lies? A bit of prayer n seva one will obtain God? Only 100 years!" (Was 1000 bak then) "Parents at 18 only? Is that even possible? They will only be able to lift 25kg minimum and 320kg max??"  A few months ago I read predictions on Mahaparloh and I was like... "Is that even possible? A mother aged 5? Average age 20? Say Lord's name once for mukhti, heights will b 3 foot?" ONLY THING about lifting weights, I came up with this theory. Minimum weight able to lift may be in grams and max maybe about 20 or 25kg? JUST my theory. A body builder today can lift about 320kg, beginners start with 10kg and 25kg within a few months. Just like beginners will find 320kg impossible, the future dwellers in Mahaparloh may find 25kg impossible, just like we find lifting an elephant or car impossible but was easy in last jug.  Thanks for taking the time to read my opinnion,  Fateh. 
    • Never mind. they worship ganesh the hindu elephant god every year.  *Obviously sarcastic * 
    • What do u mean by width ? circumference of kachhera or just width of kachhera ? because circumference would be 2 times the width.
