Amrit Vela

In the Punjabi language the word Sikh also means to learn.
A Sikh is a follower of the religion called Sikhism, which is the fifth largest organised religion in the world.
A Sikh is a disciple of the Guru Granth Sahib which is more than a Holy book for the Sikhs – It is their perpetual and living spiritual teacher and guide.

Primary Beliefs & Principles of Sikh religion:

One God: – There is only ONE God who has infinite qualities and names; S/He* is the same for all religions;

Re-incarnation, Karma & Salvation: – Every creature has a Soul; on death, the Soul is passed from one body to another until Liberation.

Remember God: Love God but have fear of Him* as well.

„Humanhood” (Brotherhood*): All human beings are equal. We are sons and daughters of Waheguru, the Almighty.

Uphold Moral Values: Defend, safeguard and fight for the rights of all creatures and in particular your fellow beings.

Personal Sacrifice: Be prepared to give your life for all supreme principles – see the life of Guru Teg Bahadur.

Many Paths lead to God: – Sikhs are not Special: The Sikhs are not the chosen people of God – By just calling yourself a Sikh does not bring you salvation.

Positive Attitude to Life: „Chardi Kala” – Always have a positive and obtemistic view of life.

Disciplined Life: Upon baptism, must wear the 5Ks; strict recital of the 5 prayers Banis, etc.

No Special Worship Days: Sikhs do not believe that any particular day is holier than any other.

Conquer the 5 Thieves: It every Sikhs duty to defeat these 5 thieves

Attack with 5 Weapons: Contentment (Santokh), Charity (Dan), Kindness (Daya ), Chardi Kala (Positive Energy), Humility (Nimarta)

'*’ = the Punjabi language does not have a gender for God. Unfortunately, when translating, the proper meaning cannot be properly conveyed without using Him/His/He/Brotherhood, S/He, etc but this distorts the meaning by giving the impression that God is masculine – which is not the message in the original script. The reader must correct for this every time these words are used.
