    A subject that needs some validation, I am aware that it is not uncommon for Hindus to also pray to Guru Nanakji, which I take as a huge compliment, but given the myriad of deities that Hindus have available to them, it does not seem unreasonable for a Hindu to do this.

    However, some Hindus feel this should be reciprocated by our acceptance and worship of these deities, which is simply impossible under the SRM which clearly states:-



    Article I – Definition of Sikh

    Any human being who faithfully believes in:
    • One Immortal Being
    • Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak Dev to Guru Gobind Singh
    • The Guru Granth Sahib
    • The utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus
    • The baptism bequeathed by the tenth Guru, and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion, is a Sikh.


    I am aware that some people use the adherent Hindu/Sikh, but how can the teachings be anything other than a melting pot of contradictory opinions and concepts?

    Hinduism has the caste system, Sikhism has strict rules regarding equality, the fact that these are not followed is another matter....
    Hinduism has reincarnation, Sikhism does not
    Hinduism has Karma, Sikhism does not
    Hinduism is full of rituals and exciting ceremonies, Sikhism has gone out of its way to distance itself from such


    I know that there are Sikhs who embrace a lot of Hinduism without even realising it, but there are too many differences, the end result is a confusion.

    I have nothing against the Hindu religion, I have a lot of respect for the many Gods and Goddesses, I have respect for the right of anyone to worship anything they so wish, but do I believe they existed? No, of course not, I am a Sikh, I believe only in Creator that has no birth or death and without form, and that invalidates the Hindu Gods, so I cannot believe in them, although any concept that agrees with Sikhi, I am happy to embrace, but with the direction coming from Creator, not Idols.

    As a Sikh, Creator Created, and that is it, its boring, its not exciting, no bells and whistles, no fire or sun worship, just simple tuning into Creators voice to achieve salvation with the minimum of fuss and ceremony.

    So I would be interested in comments as to what a Hindu/Sikh actually is

    Harry Ji,

    This is just a personal perspective... but I think someone identifying themselves as Hindu/Sikh is someone who has little idea of who they are... haha! even less than me!

    MOST OF YOUR FACTS ARE WRONG WRONG WRONG.

    Sikhism does believe in the 840sky/water reincarnations and believes in KARMA. Although, I musat agree that Sikhism does restrict the caste system, many traditional indian Sikhs still use it, I can gurantee to you over 90% of Sikhs do take the caste system seriously, but in different ways, as in like some people only let their jatt sons marry jatt ladys instead of chamar girls. We also do have cerimonies like Holamahala which is almost identical to Hindu Holi. Why do you think the guru ji made the same so similar? It isn't a coincedence. You are making our religion seem abrahamic, but really we are dharmic.

    It should be interesting to know who has given definition to Sikhs.??
    One should always respect the other faiths and philosophies. Adhering to a particuar philosophy is individuals right.But this does not allow disrepect for others.This has been the way of thinking of Sikh GuRus.

    Many thanks for your post, I note you are in fact Hindu/Sikh, so what a wonderful chance for me satisfy my question by interacting with a knowledgeable person of the very adherent that I find confusing.

    Firstly let us ponder the wise words of the SRM on the subject:-

    A Sikh’s living, earning livelihood, thinking and conduct should accord with the Guru’s tenets. The Guru’s tenets are:
    a. Worship should be rendered only to the One Timeless Being and to no god or goddess.
    b. Regarding the ten Gurus, the Guru Granth and the ten Gurus word alone as saviors and holy objects of veneration.
    c. Regarding ten Gurus as the effulgence of one light and one single entity.
    d. Not believing in cast or descent, untouchability, magic, spells, incantation, omens, auspicious times, days and occasions, influence of start, horoscopic dispositions, shradh (ritual serving of food to priests for the salvation of ancestors on appointed days as per the lunar calendar), ancestor worship, khiah (ritual serving of food to priests - Brahmins - on the lunar anniversaries of the death of an ancestor), pind , there is more,

    http://www.gurunanakdarbar.net/sikhrehatmaryada.pdf

    So Kamalaji, please educate me as to how you can possibly be a Sikh? if you believe in points (d), which seems to go dead against the SRM.

    Also when you say 'We' I find it most confusing, do you mean 'We' Hindus? 'We' Sikhs or 'We' Hindu/Sikhs?

    I look forward to your clarification on the matter, thank you

    Prakashji,

    Out of respect I have tended to not really get involved in debate with you, however as you have so kindly contributed to this thread, I feel honour bound to reply,

    It should be interesting to know who has given definition to Sikhs.??

    Well, that would probably be the SGGS and for clarification on interpretation, the SRM, would you not say?


    One should always respect the other faiths and philosophies


    I have not shown any disrespect for any faith, I have merely said I do not believe in them any more than I believe in the tooth fairy, however, I respect all faiths and the right of anyone to follow whatever faith they choose. I am quite fond of the saying, if you are a Hindu, be a good Hindu, if you are a Muslim, be a good Muslim, and if you are a Sikh, be a good Sikh

    I note that you use the phrase 'definition to Sikhs' as if you were speaking as someone who is not a Sikh, kindly explain

    Mr.Haller, there is a difference between beleiving in a goddess/god and beleiveing they existed. I do not go to mandirs and pray to the gods/goddesses, I go to the mandir to pay my respects to them. I beleive that those goddesses/gods do exists and are real. That is the part where I say I am half Hindu on this forum because most of you do not believe the gods didn't even exist, when in fact there are many storys from the past between ~700 years that they have came prakat. I am Sikh and I bleive the gods EXISTED.

    Namashkar.

    you seem confused, as do some of your posts, but then that is not surprising given your above statements.

    Simply put, you are not a Sikh, its very simple, here is another extract that you fail miserably on

    Not believing in or according any authority to Muslim seers, Brahmins holiness, soothsayers, clairvoyants, oracles, promise of an offering on the fulfillment of a wish, offering of sweet loaves or rice pudding at graves on fulfillment of wishes, the Vedas, the Shastras, the Gayatri (Hindu scriptural prayer unto the sun), the Gita, the Quran, the Bible, etc.. However, the study of the books of other faiths for general self-education is
    admissible


    So by your admission, you believe that these gods and goddesses existed, although you do not worship them , your beliefs are against the code of Sikhs, the SRM, you are not educating yourself, you believe they existed, sorry, but you are not a Sikh...

    I have no problem with your opinions, but they are the opinions of a non Sikh, please do not try and pollute Sikhism with the very Vedic practices that the Gurus fought so hard to move away from,

    Sat Sri Akal/Namashkar

    Prakashji,

    This does rather beg the question, how important is the SRM, how definitive is the SRM for Sikhs, is someone not convinced by the SRM still a Sikh?

    There are many sects that totally believe in SGGS, that do not follow the SRM, that is what makes them sects and not Sikhs, which one are you Prakashji

    KAMALA Ji,
    Well I am of the opinion that one should not travel on two horses at a time.This is always dangerours in every situation of life.
    Sikh philosophy is quite distict as from all others and this should not be practiced in mixed way.I dont see any point in getting asserted for the existence of what has been clearly explained as different in Sikh Philosophy.
    In Sikh Philosophy there is all but GuRMuKH(i) NAAMu only.Every thing what you envsage as HINDu is taken care within NAAMu only.
    I think this is important for anyone to understand this aspect of Sikh Philosophy.

    I apologise for my bluntness, however, I do feel it is important that posters state their background so that readers know where their views come from. Your views tend to be quite definitive rather than suggestive, which gives readers, especially the young, sometimes the wrong impression about Sikhi.

    May I make a suggestion, change your adherent to Sanatan Sikh, and your views can then be accepted in that context. When you say "We", than the rest of us will know you are talking about the Sanatan Sikh view, ie, a view that reconciles Sikh thinking with Hinduism.

    A little about Sanatan Sikhs taken from Sikhiwikki that I think you may find interesting

    There are a few Sikhs, who mix Sanatani (mainstream Hindu) views with Sikh thoughts. For them, Sikhism is a part of 'Sanatan Dharma' or Hinduism. In many of present Sikh circles, these Sikhs are called Sanatanis.
    It is thought that Sanatani views are a new ideology, but there is a long history of Sanatani thinking. A few of Sanatani views can be found even in Sikh books written in 18th century. 'Gur Bilas', 'Bansavalinama' and 'Mahma Prakash' are included in the list of such books. Sanatani views became more acceptable during Maharaja Ranjit Singh's rule in Punjab for various reasons.
    Sanatanis should not be confused with those people, who show disrespect for Sri Guru Granth Sahib or other Sikh Gurus. In fact, Sanatanis show deep respect for Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. They accept it their Guru. At the same time, they also believe in Vedas and Puranas. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji has been accepted the fifth Veda.



    As a Sanatan Sikh, I can debate and discuss any facet of Sikhism and Hinduism, whilst showing respect for your chosen adherent.

    As a Hindu Sikh, your adherent is meaningless, confusing and ambiguous.

    Whatever you are, be proud of it and stand up for your views, You will find others will respect you a lot more for it, rather than darting from one camp to the other.

    Best Wishes,

    Harry

    HARRY HALLAR Ji,

    A Sikh can not be branded as Sanatan Sikh as SIKH is GuR SIKH only..
    I feel you have not grasped the messages of the whole of SGGS ji .Once you do this I am sure your views will be different.
