    Sat sri akal!

    I am a Non-Sikh, a Unitarian psychotherapist from the USA living in Canada. I am working with Sikhs (and Christians, Muslims and others) who have survived torture. I am looking for a good quote referring to the obligation to welcome all people, no matter their origins or beliefs. I have received a warm welcome in Gurdwaras in India and Canada, and seen it in action. I am preparing a presentation to my coreligionists, and would like to say something pithy and to the point.

    Dear David

    you are not a stranger.
    You are part of us and we are part of you and we are all one.

    the difference you see are only superficial encoded in the language you use.

    In it you group and segregate and classify to identify the differences .

    see the undelying unity of al living speciies.

    Ek ho hum balak.

    Welcome dear david :)

    Manas ki Jaat Sabey Eke Pehchanbo
    meaning: Mankind is ONE race
    extended meaning: There is no point in creating discriminating distinctions based on gender, colour, country, clans etc.

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!
