    How would you describe the Sikh world view?
    What constitutes a Sikh response to life?

    Agreed. But what exactly does this mean? How is a Sikh's world view shaped by 'All is one?'

    You've asked a big question, but the answer is quite short as sukhsingh put it.

    The Sikh worldview is that everything is God. To hold any other thought is to be in duality and caught in transient illusion. A Sikh should see the world like seeing God everywhere. A Sikh should even see herself as just another form of God, and endeavour to remove the sense of being separate from God/Everything. In this way a Sikh's behaviour is guided by an ethical framework that isn't self-centred - it is God-centred.

    Absolutely.. Mool mantar provides the perfect expression of truth, everything within sikhi is a characteristic of that..

    Good post ! Ishna n Sukh have contributed beautifully !

    ..life affirmation, real and meaningful. It is to be celebrated and enjoyed in full. Humankind and they're society [panth] have an end some ultimate state of perfection [sachiara] to which they must naturally approximate and towards which they must necessarily strive and that divine law [hukam] is an essential feature for precipitating this end [God realisation and liberation from the wheel of 84].
    An active and positive mindset that is creative and ethical in every sense. Thus, paving way for physical and spiritual development that underpins fundamentals of life [scientific n spiritual]. It is the moral life that forms the chief fundamentals of spiritual growth, which in turn liberates the human being from the fetters of physical bondage.
    A Sikh should have an optimistic [chardi kala] outlook to everything in life and believe that humankind have a divine purpose. A more complete fulfilment of that great and sacred mission [gurmukh] with which humans were sent to discover the laws of Akal Purakh and, for them to conform and conquer nature’s many disguises for their own use; thus themselves divine instruments.

    Good evening !

    So love all, fear nothing and accept karam as deserved.

    The first laws of sikhi.

    There's more, but gurbanis an expansion of mool mantar.

    Sikhi isn't a religion, it's the Truth as taught by other teachers but teachings and even teachers were corrupted over time.

    Hence the vessels of Truth in the form of the Gurus.
