    Gurmastak Singh further writes in his blog "So, as you can see I am just starting my journey and have a lot to learn. My hope is to travel more and share the torch of love and acceptance. To encourage more people to build bridges so that we can be more unified as a Sikh Panth. You CAN help make a change!

    So, are you ready to take the torch and pass it on? Change starts with you."

    Are you ready?

    Prabhjot Kaur Ji Satsriakal, :)

    I have found that the american sikhs are incredibly warm and open and like to get on with most people, However, and there is always an however, sikhi is about more than just yogi tea and winter solctices, for instance I write a lot of poetry but at times my poetry has not been allowed on a certain forum because it is not against sikhi it is just not to their personal liking and i think its pretty cheeky to lecture others on unification if you abuse your authority and have a pick and mix attitude to what aspect of sikhi you want the cybercommunity to see. And this is a serious problem for me I congratulate the 3ho sikhs for their hard work in south america for taking the gurus message their but I do not like it if you judge those parts of sikhi you dont deem acceptable and then suppress a persons right to free speech. I think there is room for learning for all of us including me.

    You are right Virji, there is always room for improvement, for all of us. I would encourage to post your comments on Gurumastak Singh's blog.

    Thank you,

    Satsriakal Prabhjot Kaur Ji,

    I have never visited the blog but I have sent emails and contacted the support for the website I am referring to and have always been faced with a deafening silence, I visit the forum concerned now and again but believe that unless you are prepared to listen to people then they will never engage and noone listened to me and therefore I am unwilling to engage not because of my pride but because I do not believe you should continuously put yourself in a position to be abused. I have noticed a current them in many circle at present where people are trying to focus on upliftment and knowledge in sikhi which I am all for and think will do wonders for sikhi but lets not forsaken our history lets learn something from that aswell.

    Anyway lets think happy thoughts we are on sikhphilosophy network which is the best ever!!! because we have emoticons:wah: :star: :) :p ;)

    Love,

    Indy

    Dear brother

    SSAKAL

    I fully agree with brother IS dhillion.

    I guess we have a to make more room for freedom to express one self.

    The space should encourage the growth of sikh philosophy as seen by different sikhs from different walks of life . It is not possible that we will have the same interpretation .

    Diversity of thought will help us seeking the true meaning of " SIKH " that is a learner from the journey called life.

    Sikhism could mean different to a farmer , a soldier ,a scientist , and to Canadian , American, British , Indian Australian , Italian , French , Pakistani sikh depending on there state of evolution and enviornment.

    Let us pick up a point and have views from these different sikhs on different issues facing mankind and life in general ; which is the main theme of of our everlasting guru " The Guru Granth Sahib ".

    The topics could also include any contemproary one facing us such as AIDS , energy crisis , evolution etc etc. let us encourage modern contemporary SIKH thinking.

    The guru ji gave us lot of liberty in our life


    ssakal

    luv
