    Waheguru ji ka khalsa
    Waheguru ji ki fateh

    Once in a small school there was a teacher. Everyday two kids would come to school.
    After bowing & praising the teacher one kid would leave school to play and the other would stay there and listen to teacher. At first he couldn’t understand much but slowly he started to absorb. At times he would doubt and question the teacher but the teacher (wise & Kind) would always clear his doubts.

    Time went by; the first student without guidance became proud and stupid. Teacher was very unhappy. The other student turned up Kind and wise just like the teacher and the teacher was very proud of him.

    This teacher is Shri Guru Granth Sahib jeeo and we are the kids. Going to the Gurudwara everyday might give us some personal satisfaction but we would achieve nothing unless you contemplate on Gurbani (teachings).

    Blindingly following the person in front without any rational thinking is defying the very purpose of a Gursikh. Sikhs are not born with Sikhism encoded in them; we absorb and learn.

    In this learning process there are bound to be some doubts which should get cleared once we start reading, understanding & following Gurbani . Others might be at different levels as you or I, have a different understanding. Don’t expect all Sikhs to think alike. Always seek guidance from Satguru & follow Gurmat.

    Thanks

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!
