Welcome, Crandall !
Welcome Truthsikher ji
Dear Al, It's nice to be part of this group. My father's family claimed to be Sikh (although the only external marker of Sikh identity that I was brought up with was the kada). Over the years, I studied different religions and ideologies, and, with God's grace, recently I developed an interest in the message of the Gurus, which I find immensely relevant in my own life and for the world in general. One issue that I am particularly interested in is harmony between people who follow or claim to follow different religions, and here I find great wisdom in the approach of the Gurus.
Sat Siri Akal : my name is Bagicha Singh, born in Sikh family, living in Germany for last 38 years. I am Computer HW Engineer study in Germany in 1987 from India I did Electrical Eng.
Now Waheguru gave me the power to go deep into Sikh Philosophy so I need your help.
Welcome to SPN!
Sat siri akal to everyone I am an 18 year old curious person from New Delhi and have some question that may hurt or offend some people but for me to just sit and think that I can’t have clarity about sikhism is just absurd to me as clarity is one of the fundamental pillars of my beloved sikhi.
Gurfateh to all. I am here to share whatever I know about sikhism and also to get much more from other members
Welcome to SPN, Sukhwinder ji,
Sikhi is the treasure that belongs to all of us.
We will all learn from each other.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh
Sardar shmardar in the Big Apple. Glad to have found such a nice group of people.
Welcome to SPN ji,
Let's learn, unlearn and relearn together.
Thank you, Ji. Am always open to new things.
Hi! I'm new to Sikhi but devouring every bit of knowledge about it that I can. I'm starting to feel a change in me that I can only attribute to reading and applying the teachings of the Guru. I was raised loving God and forgot. Yes, it was hell. I am blessed to be called to this path now and I vow to never forget.
Welcome, @RicktheSikh ! Devour away and enjoy every second of it. It's a most noble path.
Welcome to Sikhi, Bhai!
Hello, my name is Jimmy. I am a male from London, UK. Would like to get to know more about Sikh religion, culture and find new Kaur and Singh friends. Any Kaurs and Singhs from London or UK?
Hi, Jimmy. I am living in New York City, however. SikhiWiki on the internet has a wealth of information on Sikhi (Sikhism).
Thank you Amardeep. I will read the information on SikhiWiki. I am also here to share my experience knowledge, also to find new friends and learn from all of members
How is NY? I haven't yet been to USA, I have a cousin who is American. Hopefully soon I will go for holidays to the states. How big is the Sikhn community in States and Canada?
All the best with your learning, Jimmy. If you want to meet more Sikhs, a good place to do that is by attending your local gurdwara. At a gurdwara everybody is welcome no matter what is their background, religion, etc. You can also eat there for free, and if you help out in the langar hall ("cafeteria") maybe you will meet some new friends that way. At the very least, the more you expose yourself to Sikh venues the greater will be your opportunity to meet more Sikhs.
What is there, about 700,000 Sikhs in America? And Canada is a literal haven for Sikhs. There are quite a few Sikhs in New York, New Jersey, and California--though I am learning about Sikhs living just about everywhere in the US. It's a conspiracy! LOL!
I know there are a lot of Sikhs in the UK. Several of my Facebook friends live in the UK, and they like to upload videos of their gurdwara services, etc. Is there a gurdwara near where you live?
Jimmy, I am rather new to this site as well, but from my understanding if you have any particular questions or things you would like to discuss you can start your own thread.
