    The following topic is taken as it is from another resource on internet.

    I'd like to discuss the origin of Rehit and those who composed it. What were they influenced by, was it the Divine contact in which they composed the Rehits or was it the Circumstances that they were surounded by which influenced them?

    Are there Any Rehits which were written or spoken by the Gurus themselves?

    If indeed it is a divine revelatino, then why do they differ from Jatha to SPGC to Akal Thakat. Why doesn't everyone Follow the Same Rehit. After all It is the Rehit which is given importence during the Amrit Sanchaar. Or can we say that as long as the basic Rehit of Amrit-vela, Meat and those related to the 5K's are kept it is enough?

    Can the SGPC or the Akal Thakat make changes to the Rehit Maryada, such as add or remove certain Rehits?

    Thanks, i apologize if the question are elementry as i know very little of Rehit and its real purpose. Also i hope this hasn't already been discussed.

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!
