SIKHISM
Devotion to Learning

The Sikh scholastic tradition begins with the ten masters, the Gurus (1469 – 1708). The first Master, Guru Nanak was a scholar of religions that formed the intellectual discourse of sixteenth century. Combining the Socratic method of teaching with exquisite poetry, Nanak sought to break down barriers of ignorance by making knowledge accessible to all people – not just the privileged few and not just to men.

The succeeding Gurus contributed with their own learning; assisted by the likes of Bhai Gurdas, the first Sikh historian, and the fifth Guru, Arjan, who in 1604 compiled the Sikh Scripture – eventually known as the Guru Granth. The commitment to ideas such as freedom of conscience and expression was highlighted by the ninth Guru, Tegh Bahadur, who laid down his life to protect these freedoms for Sikhs and non-Sikhs alike.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=5626

Sikhs are people of the book – a people of discussion, debate and analysis. By definition (the word “SIKH” derives from “Sishya” or student), Sikhs are committed to life long learning. Being called a Sikh, then, is a right that must be earned. It involves a commitment to a life of spirituality, knowledge and service; a quest for the Ultimate Truth within, which is grounded in humility, nurtured by faith and discovered through a cultivated intellect.

Re: Introducing Myself

Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa
Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh!

Dear Siblings of Destiny,
My name is Sathanuman Singh Khalsa. I was born in Providence, RI on February 17th, 1950. I was born into a devout Christian family. I was very active in the church and once thought I'd like to be a minister. I enlisted in the USAF in 1968. I served honorably for a little over 2 years. During that time I became interested in the non-violent movement for independence in India. That shaped my direction. I met a Gursikh in 1970 and by 1971, I was practicing a very ancient form of yoga called Kundalini from this same teacher. His name is Harbhajan Singh. He was known then as Yogiji. Withing months I was immersed and before long I adopted the spiritual path of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. I was given the name you now see. In 1974, with the assistance of the President of the SGPC, Sardar Gurucharan Singh Tohra and Sardar Hukum Singh, I was initiated into the Khalsa Panth. From that period, Yogiji was also known worldwide to Sikhs and non-Sikhs as Siri Singh Sahib, Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa. In 1974, we received the blessing of our first child, Satpavan Kaur into our family. In 1976, while living in Boston, our second daughter, Siriswami Kaur was born. In 1985, I was given the honor of serving as a Singh Sahib (Minister of Sikh Dharma) and now was well on the path of
Guru Nanak/Guru Gobind Singh. I traveled to UP, India and made the trek to Siri Hemkunt Sahib in the early summer of that same year with my two daughers who were then attending Guru Nanak Fifth Centenary School in Mussoorie. Wah! Cherdi Kala!
In 1999, I was among the 8,000,000 along with my beloved wife, Amrit Kaur, our eldest daughter, and her husband Sarib Singh to attend the 300th anniversary of the Khalsa in Anandpur Sahib. A year later I was invited to Miri Piri Academy to lecture on a part of American History (the Civil War). During that month, I resided at Guru Nanak Niwas in view of Darbar Sahib. To be able to bow my head daily at the feet of Guru Ram Das' home was the fulfillment of my prayers.

In 1998, I was appointed Mukhia Jathedar of Guru Ram Das Gurdwara in Massachusetts. I served there until the fall of 2005, when I relocated to Portland, Oregon. I am 56 years old, have 4 beautiful grand children and feel very blessed to live the life of Khalsa.
Through Guru Nanak/Guru Gobind Singh may Thy Name forever increase and my the Spirit be exalted. May all prosper by Thy Grace.

Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa
Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh!
Meher Bani Sadar. This path of the "Saint/Soldier" is a most noble one. This world is enveloped in pain and duality. To know within oneself the reality of the atma and the divinity of one's self, is a most precious gift from God. The Guru has shown our soul how to unite with the Akal Purkha through the Holy Naam. By HIs Grace, we rise in the Amrit Vela and bath. We sing His Holy Name with the Guru's Bani. Yogi Bhajan gave the world a simple practicle way to understand through discipline and meditation. By God's Grace, he arrived in this country and eventually around the world spreading the message Truth and Service through Kundalini yoga and Gurbani. Many, many non-Punjabis and non born Sikhs returned to the feet of the Siri Guru through this humble and fearless saint. He left a legacy of commitment and dignity. He showed souls the way home. He never took credit for the miracle. He gave all to Guru Ram Das. He left us on October 6th, 2004. The message and prohesy of the 10th Master will be realized one day. Our children's children will walk the path of Dharma because of saints like him. I am happy to share my story with you.
Cherdi Kala!
