Sikh Faith

The Sikh faith advocates an ethical life, to pray for well-being of everyone and for peace in the world. Sikhs are advocated to lead a householder's life, and stick to monogamy. They do not use or even touch tobacco, and many do not eat meat.

A Sikh believes in One God and prays only to him, has faith in Ten Gurus, and follows the dictates of Guru Granth Sahib - their Holy Book, and the Khalsa Panth - the Sikh World. Guru Granth Sahib, has Hymns not only of the Sikh Gurus, but also of the saints from other faiths, eg. different castes of Hindu and Muslim religion.

The last i.e. the tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh, declared the Granth Sahib as Guru of Sikhs, and designated it "Guru Granth Sahib." He declared that after him, there would be no more any human being a Guru of Sikhs. Sikhs consider Guru Granth Sahib (Gurbani i.e. Holy Hymns in it the Word) as their Living Guru. Sikhs keep attached to their Gurus, and worship God through the path shown by them in Guru Granth Sahib (Their Scriptures). They say their humble supplication to God with the Gurus and Guru Granth Sahib (their Words in Guru Granth Sahib) as their witness.

    Baptised Sikhs can eat meat. Stop posting Bahman MaTT!

  3. "Baptised Sikhs" or "Amrit shakeya" Sikhs do not touch tobacco, alcohol or meat, please get ur facts right before posting online.

  4. Dear Anoymous 2 , Anonymous 1 is completly right. A Baptised Sikh is permitted to eat meat, provided it is not Kuttha Meat.

    Kuttha is sacrificed meat, like Halal and Kosher.

    So maybe you should know about your religion before posting on-line.
