    Hello every one,

    I am very interested in Sikhism. I am English (white) but I like to wear Salwar Kameez and am always interested in other nations and other cultures which is how I "stumbled" on Sikhism from what I've read and heard I believe in the basic princilples.

    I would love to go a long to the local sikh temple to worhsip but I'm scared I might seem odd and out of place. Mainly because I'm not a Sikh but also I'm not Indian and I don't speak Punjabi. Tho I am guessing any one can be a Sikh regardless of skin tone or whatever right!! We are all God's children after all.

    I didn't realize Sikhs believe in God I thought they just believed in and worshipped their gurus but now I know they believe strongly and love God I want to find out more because I too believe and love God.

    I know they have worship through out the day and I would love to go a long this evening or this afternoon but I'm scared of being out of place without a clue of what I'm doing or whats going on.

    I'd put on my best salwar and remove my footwear before entering the temple but I wouldn't know where I'm going in the temple or what I'm doing.

    Should I go and just find out or should I leave it.. I guess I need a little encouragement. Anyway it is nice to be here and hopefully learn more aboutt Sikhismm.!!

    Katya ji;
    I've just returned to the forum after an absence but I can help you. Check the gurudwara for a website, they might be very welcoming.If not I would look around for one that is. I understand your concerns about etiquette, my local gurudwara has this page which tells visitors just what to do. How helpful; how welcoming.

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!
