I am sorry, but I am in a bit of a dilemna here.
Basically, I am due to go India later this year and although this is great news there is a place where I am to pray which I feel contradicts with my belief as a Sikh.

As a child, I had a Christian background. I converted to Paganism in 1984.

I was browsing through Guru Gobind Singh Ji's Dasam Granth, and I was reading through the incarnations of Rudra, and it mentioned a Paras Nath. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is the same Paras Nath (otherwise known as Parsvanath) venerated by Jains as their 23rd Tirthankar (Prophet)...

I have a question, I would like it to be answered by elder Sikhs or by others that can get an accurate reference/answer, or maybe just ask your grandparents. Or maybe you yourself can.
This is my question, ???

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but I've tried finding answers to these questions and can't. I'm doing a project for a sociology course and during my research I came across two things in sikhism that strike me as not making sense, given the focus on equality of all people in sikhism...
If I wanted to begin reading (recite) whilst learn from the direct source of Sikhi - Guru Granth Sahib Ji - how would guys suggest I go about doing this on the net? Is it even doable? This website http://www.srigurugranthsahib.org/ only contains quotes, right?
