    Hey guys, My name is John, I'm sixteen and I'm from East London in the UK.
    I am interested in religion and philosophy and both together - philosophy of religion.
    I also enjoy religious architechture and visiting places of worship [my favourite Gurdwara is obviously the large one in Southall :D ].
    I don't belong to any religion at the moment, I was baptised a Christian [Church of England sect], but my family is far from religious so I was never a practicing Christian. I followed Hinduism for about a year but then I found myself becoming too attached to rituals so I left it [Am not a religion hopper]. Now I am just a freethinker that accepts that God is not limited to religion - a lot of people will imply that without their religion there would be no God, but it is clearly the other way around and this is something I have realised.
    I am here because I have a lot of respect for Sikhism and I love talking about philosophy of Guruji's teachings. One thing that I respect the most about Sikhism is the ego-free message of equality - that all are equal regardless of orientations, lifestyles, beliefs, attitudes and variations.
    I look forward to many deep and meaningful discussions.

    Brother CC,
    I am double your age, but while reading ur posts, and the curiosity and enthusiasm u throw around, I feel myself one fourth or still lesser your spiritual age. Now with freethinking mode, age is not a concern, and I beg to learned ones to guide your new brother i.e. me, with thought provoking discussions.
    All are most welcome.
    Best Regards.
     
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!
