Blind yearning to lead the blind,
The One eyed, they know best.
Who cares about having full sight?
Oh! The Vedas
Have not read a single page
But, I claim to be the true Hindu leader

Denounce them without any investigation.
Oh! the Semitic Texts
Never explored the meanings of the teaching
Yet, I claim to be best Jew, Christian or Muslim

Blame the same teachings for all world’s ills.
Can’t tell a pop-song from Gurbani

I drive gas guzzlers
Yet I ask why Islam creates terrorists
Have not practiced anything of the spirit
Yet I claim faith as the root of all evil

A set of texts that can act as a Primer on the Sikh way of life.
Book Review: Confessions of an American Sikh: Locked up in India, corrupt cops & my escape from a “New Age” tantric yoga cult!”
For me it was too close to home since I too like Gursant have had experience in life when I was walking down the spiritual path & was fooled but charlatans or misdirected by really earnest innocent fellows who were lost like me.
This is a short post, but first, a shorter rant: <begin Rant> The “2” in the title is in protest against all the “10 things, 8 points & 5 best” blog-posts out there. Research might say something else, but sometimes we need to forgo them “clicks” for the sake of some sanity. <end Rant> Now, coming to the point. Much…
Corporate email is a funny place, over the last year I made up a few rules for myself that I think can help others.
Just in case you did not know these on your own, here they are:
Please note before giving feedback, that the aim is not to educate someone on the intricate details of Sikhi, but just to make them a little comfortable with who we are. (Do let me know if this handcard crosses the line from familiarizing to proselytizing)
