My Sikh World View

Sikhi is based on the belief in one God and was discovered and revealed by the spiritual teachings of Guru Nanak. The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is the Sikh Scriptures which includes the teachings of the Sikh Gurus, saints and poets and is known as the Shabad Guru, This written word is the spiritual guide and teacher to Sikhs and reveres all faiths as equal and one.

 

Sikhs believe that the body they have been granted is the ultimate gift. This gift is to be taken care of and treasured as the truth and divine spirit resides within it. There are three practices that underline the Sikh way of life, Naam Japna- meditate and realise your true self. The second is Kirat Karni- Live as a householder, without being attached but provide for those around you by making an honest living. Finally to Vaand Chakna- Share and serve with all humanity.

 

Sikhs who have made the commitment to live as the Khalsa will observe the above seriously, wear the 5 ks and adhere to a simple daily discipline know as a Maryadha or code of conduct. They are invited to protect themselves and be aware of the 5 vices, Ego, anger, greed, lust and attachment and focus on living a life of a Saint soldier. Sikhs will make their daily practice compassionate, act courageously in society and be free
