is there one god? is there only one path to god? if there is only one god and only one way to god then how come a person with his hair cut can't be close to god by usenig sikh philosophy? some people have the view that if you are righteous ( help other people and do not hurt anyone) then they can achive the same thing that a sikh can useing sikh philosophy. cause in the end there is only one god. i would like to argue against that, but i have no idea how to explain that u need the exterior form with the naam? in the end the question is...only way to to achive mukti is by following the exterior form or could it be done without that for a person following sikh philosophy but not keeping his hair?
