Questions in Sikhi

I have come a few questions that get asked on Sikhi. 

Is Sikh faith an actual religion? Not sure what people mean when they ask this or what they are getting at. 

Did Guru Nanak Create Sikh religion? Or is Sikhi based on Guru Ji Philosophy..

Why does Sikhi have so much similarity with Hinduism? I've reincarnation, Karma? 

Where did Sikhs get the one God belief. Did they copy this from Islam. Some say Guru Nanak was influenced by Islam??

Btw these are just questions I've come across. I'm not saying these a valid questions.

1. We are a dharam not a religion. The term religion is a western definition.

2. Guru Nanak Dev Ji made a start on this dharam but he was in my opinion starting something which existed inside of us since forever.

3. Sikhi will have similarly with Hindu dharams as we have come from the same part of the world. Also because Hindus have got some things right in terms of reincarnation and karma so they have similar concepts but they have not grasped them fully like our Gurus showed us.

4. It is not one god but one-ness. The concept of one has always been there. The Islamic concept of one God is not the same as ours. Ours is much more in depth. The Islamic concept is one thing to the lay person and a completely different thing to their scholars and their higher ups.

5. Guru Nanak did not copy anything from anyone. Neither was he influenced. He used concepts and terminology that the people of the subcontinent would be able to comprehend to connect to the one.

Here is an anology for you.

If the truth was a cake, Sikhi would be the whole cake.

If you cut the cake into several slices. You have difference slices. Hindu dharam is one slice and Islam is another slice. Even if you have these slices, Sikhi would be all the slices. 

You should read mool mantar and japji sahib.

Don't be lazy.

    • I saw the video on TikTok I think. It was at Wembley Stadium and I was unable to bookmark/favourite it because Tiktok decided to refresh. It was the "mainstream" Chaupai Sahib you will hear at a Singh Sabha gurdwaras, usually so-called Ramgarhia gurdwaras and also for the past 100 year or so in Harimandir Sahib under the current committee system.  In other words, the sikhs who give up or quit at ਖੜਗ ਕੇਤ ਮੈਂ ਸ਼ਰਨਿ ਤਿਹਾਰੀ ॥ ਆਪ ਹਾਥ ਦੈ ਲੇਹੁ ਉਬਾਰੀ ॥ Lord of the Almighty Sword, provides a shield for my protection. With Your Hands you have saved me.   ਸਰਬ ਠੌਰ ਮੋ ਹੋਹੁ ਸਹਾਈ ॥ ਦੁਸ਼ਟ ਦੋਖ ਤੇ ਲੇਹੁ ਬਚਾਈ ॥੪੦੧॥ You bestow help on me at all places and rescue me from pain and the designs of my demons.401. Kharag kait mai sarann tihaaree. Aap haath dai leho ubaaree. Sarab thor mo hoho sahaaee. Dustt dokh té leho bachaaee. (25) O The Lord of Sword, I seek Your protection. With Your Hands you have guarded me. At All Times be my Support. Save me from wickedness and pain. (25).
    • Bro, can you post from what line to what line they did paath of?
    • A decade later and I can show you all what the problem is. Both Khalsa Primary School and students from Pioneer Secondary Academy were invited for Vaisakhi celebrations, and they done a Chaupai Sahib paat. The problem is, they performed the politics ridden anti-dasam Bhasauria mutilated cut version of Benti Chaupai which is disrespectful to traditional puraatan samrpadaiye and mahapurakh. If bani politics is going to be used on children to skip lines from Dasam Pita ji dhan dhan Guru Gobind Singh ji's Benti Chaupai Sahib, that certain groups think it is ok to do, then @serious guptwas right to raise concerns a decade ago! IN 2024, when sangat is much more knowledgable about dasam bani and katha, when we have so many resources - then if we are not allowing our children to learn bani shud and let them choose their groups to follow later, then this raises RED FLAGS IN 2024!!!! AKAAAAL!
