    So if you ever wondered what it feels like to be part of a Sufi zikr (Divine Remembrance), this might be the video for you. These are Jerrahi dervishes. animatedkhanda1

    This is why I never made Sikhi my religion. The sheikhs would not have trouble with it, but to become a Sikh one must not have any allegiance to another religion.

    Some fun coincidences:hat
    My relationship with Sufi Zikr is why I won't become a Sikh
    My Sikh spiritual name means zikr (simran)
    Sikhi teaches chanting and meditating on the Naam is the easiest way to God-Consciousness.

    Even if I never formally embrace Sikhi, I am grateful that I can hang out with Sikhs online like this.

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!
