    Jay Swaminarayan, Waheguruji ka khalsa Waheguruji fateh,

    The Swaminarayan religion/sect is about 200 years. Some similarities it has with Sikhism:

    + Removal of superstition
    + Removal of sati
    + Allowed non Hindus to join [i.e. you didn't have to be born into it]
    + Removed vanity based on caste, creed, said all castes can reach God and are equal, no caste is untouchable [however, castes were still expected to stick to their assigned tasks etc.]
    + Uplifted women [built Mandirs for them, forgave a prostitute]

    If anyone else has more to add, please do...

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!
