    Before we try to unravel the mysteries of God, let us go look at our own existence. "Go" because we need to mentally move out of our bodies, and look at ourselves from the eyes of any rational alien.
    Several Rishis (with much greater powers of observation, analysis & synthesis than the majority of us do possess) first attempted to find the answer to the following Qusetion, please:-
    Who am I?

    Now, if you prefer to join an MBA course (condensed knowledge about what business Guruschoseto share with you) rather than learning about businesses by a personal trial & error method, then the simplest way for you to enter the portals of spiritual mysteries is to join any religious sect; it will teach you to walk (aptly worded, to walk into this wonderful world of spiritualism). Religion is like a kindergarten--the first step towards the long journey to knowledge, not the end of all that is knowable. From then on you are at your own, you have to travel alone along this wonderful path to spiritualism; and you may notchooseto share with others what you see as you move along--because you will not be able to convince them about it. They may not be able to understand (much less 'experience') what you have seen unless they, too, personally tread this path.

    Ifyoucould, then surely the scriptures, too, would have succeeded in convincing us ALL.

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!
