    Dear Members,

    The prescribed lifestyle in Sikhi is that of the detached householder, in your experience how has this fared? How have you balanced your Spiritual relationship (faith), its growth (which is usually very internal) with that of your social role in your family, community and everything outside of it? How do you cultivate faith, take care of it whilst being immersed in an environment where it is likely there are distractions, maya abound?

    How do you balance the internal and the external, and take care of both stably and not feel like your shortchanging one experience over the other???

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
