    hello

    my name is michael
    I am French and proud to be ;)
    I live in the countryside
    I come from a Catholic family and atheist

    there is of it a few months I discovered Sikhism and how you say I accept the precept that belief and finally found a life paths

    I wish I still accurate in the study of Sri Guru Granth Sahib
    and I asked about my search for spirituality

    excuse me and if I just allow me I would have some questions

    1) then I follow the principle of Sikhism without being converted ?

    2) I would also like to convert me and I would need to know how it 's going ?

    3) is there a reason why I can not be accepted in the community?

    4) I am a sovereignist ( royalist or Bonapartist ) is this a problem

    5) I then marries a non- Sikh person ?

    6) if I could I Sikh volunteered for the catholic go to a lourdes pellerinage?
    else

    7) are there any reasons or I can be acceptedhere

    I am disabled ( personalitie disorders ) and unemployed for a long time and I toujoure been alone in my life ( not many friends and no girlfriend ) is that it would prevent me from seeing God

    I also wish to state that I am a 250 km of gurudwaras and in my region I guess ny'est no Sikh









    I am looking for anyone writing in French language to answer my questions and helped me in my time ;)

    I also wish to state that I have used google trad

    re: Basic Questions about Converting to Sikhism

    Killgore ji

    The one question that you raise that is different from the others - it has very specific issues attached to it - is the question regarding marriage to a non-Sikh. More information is needed to look at the details of your situation.

    Sikhism accepts everyone into its gurdwara - or it should. Your political views or the fact you are disabled should not make a difference.

    The message of Guru Nanak and Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is a gift to all humanity. It was intended for anyone who hears and wishes to take that journey.

    There is no formal way to convert to Sikhism. It helps to have people who can assist you along the way toward study of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and living as a Sikh.

    Other members will certainly share their personal, and individual, opinions and experiences. However, unlike Catholicism, dogma and canon laws are not part of Sikhism.

    Study the Sikh Rehat Maryada and ask questions about it. Read Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and begin your studies with like minded people.

    This won't prevent you from seeing God. God has always been with you and will always be with you. If you follow the teachings of the Guru Sahibaan, you will surely see God.

    There are no limitations and if your heart is drawn towards the Sikh lifestyle, you can begin living it.

    Guru Fateh!

    In French below [En dessous française]:-

    Cela ne vous empêchera pas de voir Dieu. Dieu a toujours été avec vous et sera toujours avec vous. Si vous suivez les enseignements du Guru Sahibaan, vous verrez sûrement Dieu.

    Il n'y a pas de limites et si votre coeur est attiré vers la vie sikh, vous pouvez commencer à vivre.

    Victoire au Gourou!

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!
