    Can You Be A Sikh Without The 5ks?

    But for someone who knows nothing of mountains nor climbing, for one who has seen neither, how does he know the question is irrelevant? For one who doesn't know what there is to know, you can't expect a relevant question. But it's in the answers to the "irrelevant" questions that he or she can...

    Sikh Names Like Parvati

    Re: Names like Parvati I'm sorry to be off-topic for a moment, but in the name of comparative religion and equality among religion .. This it not quite right (according to my understanding; please correct me if I am wrong or out of line, though sources are appreciated!). It's my...

    Dasvand If I Became A Sikh (re: Interfaith Marriage)

    Hi all! I have been reading and studying Sikh philosophy for a little while now. Tomorrow I'll go to gurdwara for the second time. I've been going over the various practices that Sikhs undertake as part of their identity and belief, one of them being dasvand. I understand this to be giving...

    Introducing Myself

    Australian Kaur ji, Hello! And welcome :) I'm also a Western from Australia who has been looking into the Sikh way of thought and life lately. It's nice to know that there are other people here who have decided to take a look at Sikhism, and indeed, become Sikhs! It's great. :) Look forward...

    Introducing Myself

    I've just realised I almost missed a question: I've started out by learning Gurmukhī online. Learning languages is one of my hobbies, so I have quite some experience in getting to a decent level of understanding and communication with disparate resources (various websites, books, etc.). Once I...

    General Amusing Occurrences

    So I've become aware! :thumbsupp: I'm just not used to it being quite so much like clockwork. Last night I had another dream about going to gurdwara, which really cemented it for me! Thank you for further explaining the role it plays in Sikh life! It's something like that which almost serves...

    Introducing Myself

    Given a choice between an easy but empty life, and a difficult but meaningful one, I will pick the latter, ten times out of ten. I will do my best to, starting, I think, with Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. Thank you :) mundahug Thank you very much for your kind words, Mai ji. I have read...

    General Amusing Occurrences

    Oh, there was one more thing! In my wife's dream (we related them to each other when we woke up), I had long hair (kesh?!). I had it cut recently (before I started investigating Sikhi matters.. :). So that was interesting!

    General Amusing Occurrences

    Hi all, I'm definitely not one to give too much thought to superstition (and I know that doing so is decidedly un-Sikh). I am however researching Sikhism with all my heart and giving it the full benefit of doubt in all areas, and the events of yesterday and today, well.. amused me. Last night...

    I'm Intrigued

    Gurdeep, I realise I am replying to a topic that is now a few months old, but may I say: you have truly said something deep and powerful here. I—and many others, I am sure—really appreciate it :-)

    Introducing Myself

    Thank you, Randip ji! (I'm assuming - from a small perusal of the forum so far - that appending "ji" is the way to be polite. If I am mistaken, please correct me!) I fully intend to learn as much as I can while I'm here. I'm curious—what is the normal retention rate for those who introduce...

    Pacific Australia Floodwaters Cover Area Bigger Than Texas

    It's pretty scary. It's on the news everywhere—my mother-in-law is currently living and working just out of Brisbane, away from the rest of our family, so we're a bit concerned.

    Introducing Myself

    Hi all, I'm an interested Westerner (from Australia) who once dabbled in Buddhism in his younger years; since then I've looked to Christianity (my family's religion), Islam, the Bahá'í Faith and everything in between .. only recently have I considered Sikhism, but since then, I have very much...
