sikhism4
Sikhism
  • There is one creator God, whom Sikhs called Satnam (“true name”).
  • The idea of the Guru is central: God as guru; religious leaders as gurus; scripture as guru; community as guru.
  • Sikhs share with Hinduism a belief in karma, reincarnation and ultimate unreality of the world.
  • Dedicated (khalsa) Sikhs are distinguished by their uncut hair, comb, metal bangle, knee-length pants and small dagger.
  • They are opposed to parts of the caste system and their temples have communal kitchens where people are encouraged to eat together.
  • They encourage tolerance of other religious traditions, which Sikh temples symbolise by having four doors facing each point of the compass inviting anyone to enter.
  • They abstain from alcohol and tobacco.
  • Sikhism is not a missionary religion, but people can convert.
