Default Being a Sikh

Sikhism is a combination of meditation and other major religous beliefs combined with a sprinkle of common sense.

A few of the usual common sense errors such as hats, alcohol, sex and what not but they get rid of a lot of crap that doesn't make sense to a 2 year old in the major religions.

Add in the self and community improvement through meditation and wham bam you got a pretty nice religion.

meditate, fine.
pray? wut

Quote:
There is only one God who has infinite qualities and names. God is Creator and Sustainer - all that you see around you is His creation. He is everywhere, in everything. He is without birth or death, and has existed before Creation and will exist forever. Sikhism does not acknowledge an anthropomorphic God. This is true to the extent than one can interpret Him as the Universe Itself. Sikhism also does not acknowledge the belief of a Personal God, as does Christianity. Instead, God is usually interpreted as being unfathomable, yet not unknowable.
so a little less easy to trap than Christianity, clever bastards.
still tho, doesn't this exclude praying?

Quote:
ove God. Only by keeping the Creator in your mind at all times will you make progress in your spiritual evolution.
so sikh philosophy demands this, not god itself.
still quite a barrier for all men to ever achieve any spiritual progress, can't do multiple things at the same time.

I remember learning about them and their religion in high school. I found it to be, on paper, a very nice religion. Of course every group has their nut jobs. Unfortunately I have never had the pleasure of actually meeting a Sikh, on purpose. I barely know any Jewish people.


Looks better than Christianity to me.

Out of the major religions I would rank it above Christianity and Islam, probably on par with Hindu though and depending on the type of Jew you like to be either way above or on par.
