    I was wandering that everything changes with time so why not religion
    I didnt meant it for only one religion
    but for many of the religions in existence
    just asking about your views

    New things like spiritual knowledge from other traditions and meditation experience can always be added to your own soul and its spiritual bank without needing to alter religion.

    Randeep Ji ,
    I understand that you do not wish to go the Rehat way but have you tried living Gurbani like the concept of Moolmantar which explains the qualities of God ,or the three pillars of Sikhism like doing honest labour ( Kir
    at Karna ) ,remembering the qualities of God as described in Moolmantar ( Naam Japna ) , sharing with less fortunate ( wand chakkna ) . Also controlling the five vices namely Lust( Kaam ) ,Anger (Krodh) , Greed ( Lobh) ,Attachment ( Moh) & Ego(Ahankaar) with the practising of five virtues namely Truth(Sat) , Contentment (Santokh) , Mercy (Daya) , Right Conduct ( Dharam) & Contemplation on Gurbani ( Vichar ) . Also by remembering the qualities of God ( Naam Simran ) as described in Moolmantar all the qualities of God are evolved in us ie we start absorbing those qualities & become Godlike a part of God Himself & thus Liberated while living ( Jiwan Mukt ) to the fullest & not after death .
    Try living Gurbani for some time maybe an hour , a day or more then you may realise that Sikhism is TIMELESS , Rehat is for our identity purpose sothat we may not get absorbed in the sea of Hinduism or Islam like millions of other movements have after the downfall of Buddhism in India in 7th century AD

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!
