    At the beginning of Sidh Gohst, Guru Nanak Dave ji spell out the approach and decorum of discourse in Sidh Gohst.

    Let us review the following,

    Some aspects described in the above,

    • A respectful gathering with,
      • Enthusiastic participation
    • Recognition of the supreme creator
      • Respect to the objectives of the meeting
      • Hundred person effort and putting all in contribution
    • Recognizing that the wisdom flows from input of all wise participants
    • Recognizing that the focus is wisdom and truth and seeking of the same
    • Recognizing that seeking/sharing the truth and wisdom is the objective
    Could we learn how to conduct ourselves in gatherings from such a guidance. I believe we can.

    Could we learn how to conduct ourselves in gatherings from such a guidance. I believe we can.

    What you think?

    Sat Sri Akal.

    We can learn alot from this conversation.
    The beginning I found very important in terms of givng the answers as to how any sikh should ideally answer.

    The questions were direct, but the answers didn't divert away, they simply made one question themselves and look into themselves.

    This pre-supposes the ability and willingness to put one's Ego on the line, and question Oneself ...

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!
