Sikhism – story so far

Guru Nanak Dev Ji

Harimandir Sahib

Over the past one and a half years that this blog has been active, I have written more than 15 posts about Sikhism, a religious movement brought about by Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Sikhs believe in One Immortal Being, and none other.

Guru Nanak was once asked who is better: Hindu or Muslim. His answer was that if good deeds are not the way of life, both Hindu and Muslims will spend their life crying. Religion is like the saffron fruit: the color washes away easily. Your deeds are what will stay with you.

Sikhism has love for the Creation and for the Creator as a central tenet. If you do not have a heart filled with love for everyone (and not just your family), you will not be able to meet God – because he doesn’t speak Sanskrit, Arabic or Pali:

ਭਾਖਿਆ ਭਾਉ ਅਪਾਰੁ ॥
God speaks the language of Love

And:

ਸਾਚੁ ਕਹੋਂ ਸੁਨ ਲੇਹੁ ਸਭੈ ਜਿਨ ਪ੍ਰੇਮ ਕੀਓ ਤਿਨ ਹੀ ਪ੍ਰਭ ਪਾਇਓ ॥੯॥
I speak the Truth, please understand: those who will Love the Creation, only those will be successful in finding God.

The following are some of the more popular posts, and I recommend reading them in the given sequence:
