    First things first.. A big hii to everyone ...well this is my first post and the topics that everyone has talked abt are pretty interestin. though i have not read all the posts but quite a few to start my own...

    Well i myself is very much interested in sikh culture the reason being that i was born and broght up in a sikh family where we keep up with the traditions to instill the culture within young bloods.. Now that i have grown up from that stage and facing the need of the sulture to be able to follow the right path which is taught in the books of religion(sikh) but my question is what is more important sikhisn or spirtuality . ..

    Here we have laid stres to sikhism in particular as this forum is all abt it but putting my thoughts forward .. every religion more or less teaches us the same things .. then why only sikhism.. and to keep pace with the running world more then religion we need peace of mind spirtuality clear thoughts then why are we running to save sikh culture why not we intend to change the way of thinking that more then this religion what is important is how to use any religion to ur best like meditation.. yoga .. what gud will our history provide us to us ...

    i hope i am not offencing anyone rather i am trying to clear my thougts on the issue ..

    to keep pace with the running world more then religion we need peace of mind spirtuality clear thoughtsMy thoughts. Your question is so fundamentally important these days.

    Sometimes we need only spirituality. And that can hold us for a while. But the presence of God is not felt in every spiritual tradition. Nor is God necessary in any spiritual tradition.

    On the other hand, when the presence of God is felt, then it becomes important to find a way to worship that God. Spirituality may not be enough. It may be too vague, too ambiguous. Religion teaches us how to speak to that God in a faithful way.
    When God says Hi! You want to know how to respond.
     
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!
