#21 in our Anti Conversion series – #ArmYourselfWithKnowledge on how to deal with preachers from other faiths.
This video looks at how people commonly claim Sikhi to be a sect of Hinduism. They’ll try to belittle Sikhs in the process.
But it’s illogical. How can Guru talk against the practises but yet be a part/sect of it? Also, can Hinduism be defined?
The summary of the main beliefs of a Sikh:
There is only one God for all the peoples of the world
All are equal before this one God
To respect all beings and to protect the weak.
To live by one’s honest labour and enterprise – Kirat Karni
To remember the gift of life from the Almighty and to rely on Him only
To engage in regular remembrance of God – Naam Japna and Simran
One must live the life of a householder – committed to Selfless service (Sewa) to the community
To shares one’s wealth with the needy – Wand ka Chakna
To be vigilant and defend one’s life from the evil internal forces – Lust (Kham), Anger (Krodh), Greed (Lobh), Attachment (Moh), and Ego (ahankar).
To promote positive qualities both personally and among the community. To embrace Sat (Truth); Daya (Compassion); Santokh (Contentment); Nimrata (Humility); and Pyare (Love) as positive qualities of life.
