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

    There is a lot of prejudice in the Sikh community against anyone who is obviously not Punjabi. Black people get the worst, but White and East Asians get it, too. The attitude is: if you're not Punjabi, you're not really Sikh and you don't belong in the gurudwara. Of course, this is abhorrent...

    Hard Talk What Is Happening ?

    Would it really be so hard to preface a "correcting" comment with something like, "it is my understanding that..." That allows for both teaching and growing. It not only holds open that possibility that I may grow in knowledge and understanding but also shows a wee bit of humility. Of course...

    Hard Talk What Is Happening ?

    Please allow me to make an observation. Without taking sides in this discussion, I remind you both that, as our understanding of Gurbani grows, so do our interpretations of it. What a shabad means to me today will not be the same as what it will mean to me when I am farther along the path. This...

    Being Vegan And The Karah Prashad

    As regards Karah Prashad, the sugar in it can also be a problem for diabetics and others who avoid sugar. The solution here is simple. Eat only a small amount. If you are a vegan diabetic with celiac disease, you may have a problem without solution. Sorry.

    Vegan Vegetable Soup

    Kids love my vegan vegetable soup. They do. Kids who refuse to eat veggies often love vegetable soup. Go figure. Anyway, there is no reason to feed them the chemical over-salted concoction that you buy in a can or dried. [Yes, Campbell's, I talking about you.] My simplest version of this is...

    Since When Did We Sikhs Start Getting Depressed, Anxious , OCD And A Host Of Other Mental Illnesses

    Being a Sikh does not give immunity to any of the distresses of being human, but Sikhi does give us the tools for handling them.

    At least he didn't imitate Groucho and start smoking cigars!

    Sikh Leader Caught Kissing Transsexual

    I'm not sure why, but this whole incident makes me think of old Badal.

    History Sikhs And Communists

    Deathbed conversions are not unknown. We don't know and will never know unless and until we meet up in the Heavenly Abode. Since I have seen no evidence of his return to Sikhi, I am very skeptical. Whether he did or didn't, he did live his life as a search for freedom and justice and he was...

    History Sikhs And Communists

    A short comment. Of course, Bhagat Singh was a communist, but he - don't lynch me please - was an atheist and not a Sikh according to the definition of a Sikh in the SRM.

    Does Kaam Mean Lust Or Worldly Desires? Meaning Of Kaam As Per Gurmat

    Kaam - literally - lust for sex. - metaphorically - an uncontrollable desire for anything. Many words have such dual meanings, even more so when used poetically. Siri Guru Granth Sahib is written as poetry. I conclude that the word "kaam," may, therefore, be used in either sense...

    Christianity Asia Bibi Verdict: Pakistan Court Overturns Blasphemy Death Sentence

    We can at least rejoice that she was finally acquitted, whatever may happen now.

    Christianity Asia Bibi Verdict: Pakistan Court Overturns Blasphemy Death Sentence

    I have believed from the start that this is a case of the two Muslim women hating Asia Bibi and using the charge of blasphemy against her as an easy way to get rid of her. They were nearly succeeded. I expect that the mob may yet lynch her. Here is an article from the Guardian about the case...

    Cthulu! Really, though, do check out Principia Discordia.

    Sikh Leader Caught Kissing Transsexual

    I have asked myself the same questions. I don't know. This is all very confusing. Certainly, it is taboo for an Amritdhari Sikh to have sexual relations with anyone except the spouse. I think the question here becomes what is meant by "sexual relations?" I also noticed that he removed 3 of 5...

    Sikh Leader Caught Kissing Transsexual

    I went to YouTube and read the comments. Evidently: "This is Harsimranjit, (previously) a Sikh Federation UK member whose video of his sexual intimacy with a trans individual go viral. -no victims -no grooming Is that clear? I think it just involved the kissing video, but I'm not sure.

    What's Wrong With God?

    Did you try Anton LeVey's group? But that wouldn't work either because you're definitely not a hedonist. You might try Discordianism. Take a look at their sacred text, especially if you haven't read it in a while. Principia Discordia, Principia Discordia - Page -6

    What's Wrong With God?

    I wonder if I am arrogant. I am a Sikh partly because I believe Sikhi has more of the truth than other religions. If I didn't believe Sikhi is the best, I wouldn't be a Sikh; I would go be something else.

    What's Wrong With God?

    I think we should include Har. That's used a lot in Siri Guru Granth Sahib.
