How is art considered in Sikhi?

Just art in general, museums, paintings, movies, interesting photos .... is it considered maya or does it have a place in Sikhi ...?

If viewed in moderation I can’t see a problem with Art.  We are not meant to hide away close our eyes and withdraw from the world like Yogis or Monks.  Art is a brilliant medium for communicating with people who are more visually inclined.  Children learn from visuals far easier than written words.  Art has an important role in Sikhi just as long as we do not start to worship or misuse it.  Maya can be suppressed but not completely taken away and as long as you use Maya for the betterment of oneself and others around us then there isn’t really a major issue.

sikh calligraphy, poetic form, music, literature is very rich heritage wise  and can only stride forward stronger  with time and more participants . Sikhi has no rules against music or art except forming pictures or depicting the Guru Sahiban and their households via theatre or portraiture .

Agreed. The problem in the West is that they have started to worship the Artist. 

Art was meant to uplift people's thoughts and hearts.

Now, it's entirely meaningless and pointless.

Art is very important and powerful creative force and tool in Sikhi, especially in story telling. If you look at historical gurdwara's they had art depicting historical moments of Guru Ji lives. Art is a way of conveying and expressing a story where words can not. As they say a painting can say a thousand words. Art is encouraged in Sikhi especially when it glorifies the creator waheguru, nature, Sikh history and and Sikh hero's. Also there are designs (mosaics) which can be seen on famous gurdwaray especially around the parikarma of Darbar Sahib.

When you look at historical paintings of Sikh martyrs getting executed by muslim tyrannt regime and their footsoldiers you realise the cruelty of people and yet you had muslims and others who didnt believe such things took place then you had likes of isis come along and do things to non-muslims in iraq and syria which showed the barbarity that islam can inflict on muslim and non-muslim communities. And it confirmed to others that yes islam or those who follow islam to an extreme literal interpretation are capable of the most evil deeds and hence our hate for their evil poisonous inhumane ideology and their need to be exterminated from this world is justified.

    • well I wouldn't know. Nor am I amritdhari nor am I married. But I would expect that love and lust are two different things even when it comes to physical human relationship. Right? Or maybe both persons in relationship have to be at a high level to differentiate between lust and love and act accordingly.?  and if we are on this topic,  is it not lust to use a natural mechanism, that is meant for procreation, to get the pleasure, and at the end simply pull out (sorry for being explicit). Is there a difference between making love and fu**ing?

      Waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh as I'm fairly new to Sikh really want to engage with kirtan ,so I wanted to know if anyone know any places or teachers around Birmingham who teach kirtan on harmonium (vaja)? iv been looking for a teacher or a gurdwara where they teach but iv been struggling and I really have a passion to learn so I would be grateful if anyone could guide me  many thanks  ,sorry for mistakes  waheguru ji ka khalsa waheguru ji ki fateh
    • One should remember that if one is a sikh of the Guru, and moreover Amritdhari, one's goal is to stay away as much as possible from the 5 vikars, and gradually with His bhakti nullify the mind, consequently the vikars. Our relation with Guru Jee and Waheguru is above any other relations. Why do not try and substitute kamee impulses with devotional thoughts and focused mind on the Lotus Feet of Waheguru. Give it a throughly thought bro... Saas saas simro Gobind. Try and love Waheguru. And you shall be ferried across the Mahabhavsagar. What else is then left to be achieved? Nothing.
    • Well I guess i would have to wait till I get married and see how it is then lol But I dont share feelings with anyone  not even friends or family Its safer to keep feelings and problems to yourself, at least I prefer it that way and deal better with it. There are some things I would have to share though.  Its difficult to open up with people, iv done it a few times and didnt like it very much. To much info out like that   I dont like it. And I dont feel comfortable with that.  Iv only ever once had a deep conversation with a female but that's because she had similar problems at home  so I just opened up as well    it didnt feel that bad  because she could relate.
