    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.
