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.

    • ^^ Sounds amazing TBF. 😁😅
    • But i believe a load of random videos on the internet, oh man, i really didn't want to post anything on this thread but the amount of rubbish I've seen linking 5G to Covid-19 over the last few days has been beyond a joke, those people that filmed the videos are filming on mobile devices that let off low levels of radiation, they don't see the irony. Here's all the tinfoil conspiracy theories condensed into one insane post  
    • There are organisations who used funds solely for Sikh causes but Ravi Singh has pretty hogged all the limelight so when one looks into Sikh charities, KA comes up first and most Sikhs jus donate to them without looking at what the funds will be used for. KA has started to get challenged by Sikhs about why they do not do anything for Sikhs in needs and they have started some work but it is about 10% of their total work. They put up a few post about Sikligars and then start to ask for donations. I have written before that KA has over £5 million in the bank and if even half that money was used for Sikhs causes it would be a game changer for the future of Sikhs in Punjab. But Ravi Singh is too arrogant to even consider that. He is just into self promotion appearing in TV shows and newspapers. His latest joke of a post on facebook was asking people in Punjab what they need during the lockdown. I would have thought that having dozens of volunteers or more in Punjab and India he does not have any idea what the people of Punjab need. 
    • ----------------- UK Direct Debit Your Dasvandh to Khalsa Aid will help many who are suffering from natural disasters, conflicts and poverty all over the world. Khalsa Aid is the world’s first cross-border humanitarian relief organisation based on the Sikh teachings. We thank you for your support. -------------------------------------     From the Khalsa Aid website. As a Amritdhari, Ravi Singh should be aware what Daswandh is and how it has to be utilised but it either shows his deep ignorance or something more sinister.    Maybe asking for Daswandh generates more donations rather than just asking for daan. Most Sikhs are not so knowledgeable to know the difference so KA gets away with this.     
    • Not much details available on him. No doubt his masters rewarded and protected him. I've got to read up more about the Gaddar Lehar, might be more info in one of those works?
