Amrit is Not Baptism

Amrit is not Baptism

Taking Amrit, holy drink is not Baptism, and it is not right to call it so. Amrit is Amrit and it is taking Amrit to get properly inducted into the Sikh Faith.

Baptism is a Christian ceremony. To make others understand, we may say, “It is Baptism like ceremony”, or “Like Baptism in the Christianity, Amrit is in the Sikh faith.”

There is the legend that Guru Gobind Singh waits for his Sikh to take Amrit and visit the Guru’s last resort, Sach-Khand Nander – Sri Hazoor Sahib, Nander, in Maharashtra, up to his or her 60th year of age.
