Why and how Sikhi spread throught the world?

Recommended Posts

Why and how Sikhi spread throught the world in old days? My topic means how and why several crore people from many Asian regions, all religions and all ideologies became followers of Guru Nanak Dev ji i.e. Guru Nanak Nam Leva, who were later called Sikhs?  What was chrishma in Him which attracted people inlarge numbers without modern techniques of communication? I did not agree with people who say “Guru Nanak was very intelligent, due to that people became his followers”, that is not possible. Because during that period and now a days there are several people who are very intelligent and very good orators but still people donot become their followers in large numbers. There must be something else, which is not evident. Pl tell us with detail.

    I hope members of this forum can throw light on this topic also. I request everybody to give us knowledge about this topic.

      Even in this period there are about 11crore Guru Nanak Leva people mostly in India, many of them cannot understand Hindi leave aside Punjabi. We must analise: with so much  language barrier and hardships of communications , why and how they became followers Guru Nanak Dev ji in those days or later? After 500yrs still they are his devotee, why? How their devotion/attachment survived when there is no contact/preaching/support from Sikh clergy/SGPC etc? 

            I know many hard core Sikhs or who are in power, who are in posession of  main gurdwara and goolks and so called mainstrem Sikhs donot consider them as Sikhs but as per my opinion they are Sikhs. They are real real Sikhs devotees, true disciples of Guru Nanak Dev ji because they have devotion inside, which is real Sikhi. Because Sikhi is not with any particular uniform or dress code or even kes/hair are not neccessory element of Sikhi as per Gurubani, Sikhi is with devotion to Guru Nanak Dev ji.

I request everybody to give us knowledge about this topic.

Brother, the only answer to your question above, I can give you, is that, first of all, anybody who believes in the teachings of sikhee, is more by His kirpa, than our human understanding.

Secondly,  again it is by His grace, for even if there is no conatct/preaching/support, then, they(other people) get inspired, and get the message of sikhee, from each sikh brother and sister, when others see or look at us and come in conatct with us, for Guru Sahiban, made us, to their form of purity, love, and discipline, through Gurbani/Bhakti.

So if Guru Jee has made us to their image, with their blessings, it is our duty as individuals and collectivelly sikhs, to stay up to the values and high standards Guru Jee  taught us to fill ourselves with them, such as truthfulness, purity, mercy, devotion, sewa, kindness, sweetness, towards all; just as They themselves did so with mankind, irrespective of caste, color, or creed.

Sabna jeea ka Iko Daata.

Wahiguru Akal purukh

Sat Sree Akal.

Khalsa Ji,

Thank you for this topic. I was just listening to the Katha of 6th patshahi, where Bhai Gurdas Ji explained the need for Waheguru Mantar, the need for SGGS, and the significance of Sri Harmander Sahib. Upon listening to Bhai Gurdas Ji, the King of Kanchi, along with seven hundred intellectuals became Sikhs of 6th Patshahi.

This Katha is so great. Bhai Gurdas Ji explains why ‘Waheguru Mantar’ is above all other mantars. Why SGGS was needed when there were Granths already in the world. Why Sri Harmander Sahib is the shrimoni tereth, above the previous tereths...

Waheguru...

    • YES! valid points. Life is a thing which can pull people into good / bad stuff. Religion, friends, fam and society can be factors. I too went down a "Make a quick buck" routine a few years back as I considered myself in a "Hard" life. Of course no one was hurt, injured or robbed in the process.
    • Iv listened to it before  I think it's real     he starts reciting the Quran as well 
    • @mods I'm not sure if this violates the forum rules. Please feel free to remove/alter if required. This is not a promotional post and I'm not affiliated with stack exchange. I've just submitted a proposal to them. Satsriakal people! I've created a proposal at stack exchange( the largest question/answer website on the web, similar to quora) to start a sub site devoted to Sikhism where people can post questions and receive answers from others. I request everyone to please follow the site to keep it active so that it can be pushed to the next stage(beta)and isn't deleted.
      Please click "follow" at the below link: https://area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/122932/sikhism Once the number of followers meet the minimum criteria, there will be a sub section on stack exchange devoted only to Sikhism, which I think will be a great thing. Let's give our best to make this proposal count. Since this is a new proposal, it also lacks sample questions. Please feel free to upvote the existing questions or add new ones related to Sikhism.
    • shes from a different community n anotha part of town. abt 15 yrs younger than the female elder as well. so y wud she be keepin their company? seems like she was either abandoned by her own for wateva reason n lost her way. maybe livin rough n desperate before bein targeted. or she knew the place well as a worker or regular customer n wanted a piece of the prize from wat wudve seemed a simple 'transaction'?
    • Sidh Gohst is a Sikh Prayer... (i hope u weren't being sarcastic)? Prayer came about when Guru Nanak Ji had an assembly (gohst) with Sidhs, hence the name Sidh Gohst. The prayer is like a Q&A session where Sidhs ask n Guru Ji answers... NOW! Who been telling me to stick t learning about Sidh Gohst?? 😔
