    Hard Talk Racists And Bigots Are Amongst Us. How Would You Have Reacted'?

    Please don't take this the wrong way but I find some of what you say hard to reconcile.. Whilst I fully accept that prejudice, bigotry and racism exists in the sikh community as all communities.. The scenario as described above does not ring true, 'to me' I don't understand a couple of things...

    Atheism Is Atheism The Ultimate Sikhi?

    I would have to agree with the idea that the pursuit of truth is a methodology and if I may I would say that truth is a fundamental characteristic of the divine.. I personally think about karma in a rational sense .. When we behave in ways at odds with the natural order we create dissonance and...

    Guru Bani Translation

    Not quite as succinct though is it? Also representation as numeral kind of reaffirms its indivisibility

    Guru Bani Translation

    I have to this day never read a succinct expression of the first 2 and most distilled expression of sikh philosophy ੴ.. Nevermind moving beyond that.. That is not to say translations and exegesis or katha is not useful..

    Guru Bani Translation

    Bani is presented in poetic form on top of which it is set to music.. Personally I believe that no translation will ever be sufficient and I also believe that this was done by design to ensure that the pernicious nature of dogmatism would never be able to corrupt bani but also actually forces...

    1947. ... Were Sikh Independent At That Time.

    The only sikh states that had any say were the princely states, most of the panjab did not have a choice

    1947. ... Were Sikh Independent At That Time.
