    Vivekanand and Ramakrishna


    G.B. Singh

    Sikhs are a soft-target in eyes of the Hindu propaganda machine. The machination comes in various forms, especially designed to penetrate the Sikh psyche by way of prophets of modern Hinduism. Both Ramakrishna and Vivekananda are such an entity of the Hindu pantheon, and many Sikhs mindlessly continue to participate in ceremonies promoting these two individuals. Just to put issues in perspective, here are two examples that should catch your attention: (1) Ramakrishna had a great respect for the Sikh Gurus. This was because he believed that the “Gurus of Sikhism were the reincarnations of King Janaka of ancient India.” (2) Swami Vivekananda had his own reasons for he admired Guru Gobind Singh. He believed that the Guru brought on the “Sikh sect revival by his initiation when he re-Hinduised Mohammendan converts and took them back into the Sikh community.” Have no doubt, these two prophets exhibited a very shallow knowledge base, which will be even more evident when you read this article that I wrote few years ago and then updated it just for the benefit of the Sikh readers

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!
