A True Sikh Believes in ...

The Sikh Gurus practiced what they preached for well over 200 years and the Sikh beliefs are born out of their examples and sacred writings. Due to this, Sikhs have a strong base when it comes to beliefs. Some of the major Sikh beliefs are:


God is the Creator of the Universe
God isn't born and will never die
God is present everywhere.

2) Equality

All human beings are equal
People of all religions and races are welcome in Sikh Gurdwaras
Women have equal status with men in religious services and ceremonies.

3) Birth and Death
After a person dies, his soul is born again in another body, human or animal
One's next life depends on his deeds in the past life
The human life is supreme and it is through this life that we can achieve oneness with God
Finding God takes us out of this life cycle

4) Non-Violence
Sikhs are a peace loving people and stand for Truth and Justice
Guru Gobind Singh Ji said, "It is right to use force as a last resort when all other peaceful means fail."

Bhul Chuk Maaf.

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ke Fateh
