well in a matter of speaking..maybe..BUT Guru Gobind Singh ji did stand up on stage and demanded a Head five times..and He got them. I am not sure he "wanted" the heads ???/ Guru nanak ji also wrote..je ko prem khelan ka chao..sir dhar gali meri ao.....again.."want" or "need"..or what ?? icecreammundaOur Guru has no want.
Care, about what ?It's showing respect, if you cannot do that then you obviously don't care.
I think there is a tendency to focus on the respect/ritual part more than the learning part, but then, Hinduism is more about ceremony and ritual than Sikhism so your comment is understandableIt's showing respect, if you cannot do that then you obviously don't care.
Harry ji,The question is not whether to Matha Tek or not, that would be stupid question.....
The question is how important is it in relation to reading, absorbing and living the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Do you mean that majority think of it is a ritual like idol worship. So, if you don't do you won't get heard ?Majority of the Sikhs have obliterated the thin line between showing respect to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and idol-worship.
I firmly believe that majority Sikhs have become idol worshipers. Taking ritual baths in sarovers, drinking its water to cure diseases, washing gurdwaras with milk and Godavari waters, as for example at Sri Hazur Sahib, the elaborate ceremony of Parkaash and Sakhashan at Harmander Sahib and there are many other rituals that smack of idol worship.Do you mean that majority think of it is a ritual like idol worship. So, if you don't do you won't get heard ?
Do some really think like that ?
