free kitchen. It serves free vegetarian food to about 100,000 people everyday. It’s also
the holiest site in Sikhism. The 5th largest and youngest of the world religions. A religion
that preaches about love, peace, and the equality of humankind, but also asks it’s followers
to carry swords. So who are the Sikh’s, what do they believe,
and why does everyone confuse them for Muslims? Well Let’s Find Out. Sikhism originated in the Punjab area of India
and Pakistan, 500 years ago. The Punjab, the land of five rivers, is one of the most historically
and culturally dense areas on Earth. This was the home of one of the world’s earliest
civilsations, the Indus Valley Civilsation. Persians, Greeks, Central Asians, Muggles,
the British, and others have invaded here…..I meant Mughals, Mughals invaded here. Hinduism,
Buddhism, Islam, Jainism, and a handful of other faiths have all left their mark on the
region. The diverse culture of the Punjab has heavily influenced the Sikhs. Today there are about 25 million Sikhs. They
make up about 2% of India’s population but about 60% of the Punjab’s. The Sikh diaspora
is spread out across the world with concentrations in the UK, Canada, The US, East Africa, Australia,
and Malaysia. Sikhs interestingly enough make up almost 1.5% of Canada’s population which
is second only to India. The word Sikh simply means learner. Sikhs
called their religion ‘Sikhi’, ‘Gursikhi’ and ‘Gurmat’. You can’t really understand the Sikhs without
understanding their relationship with Gurus. The word guru means a teacher or spiritual
guide. The Guru teaches and the Sikh learns. The Sikhs follow the teaching of 10 succeeding
Gurus that shaped Sikhism. The first and most important Guru is Guru
Nanak. The founder of Sikhism. Born in 1469 CE near what is today Lahore Pakistan. Nanak
was seen as special even as a child. As a baby he was said to have had the laugh
of an adult man. As a teen he perferred to listen to Hindu
Saints and Sufi Muslim preachers then follow his parents orders. As an adult Nanak would settle in Sultanpur
where he worked for the government. The actions of his fellow government officials and the
rich and powerful disgusted him as they exploited ordinary people and he hated the caste divisions
that he saw all around him. One day while bathing in a river near Sultanpur
Nanak had a miraculous experience. He was swept up into God’s court were God spoke to
him. Nanak reappeared three days later declaring: “There is no Hindu and there is no Muslim.” There was only God. This was a message inspired by his experience
with god, one that spoke in favour of the equality of human kind and against caste,
ethinc, and religious divisions. Nanak would later say: Accept all humans as your equals
And let them be your only sect. Nine human gurus followed Nanak all preaching
the same message of One God and the equality of humankind. Two fundamental events that
shaped Sikh history was the martyrdom of two Gurus. The First was the fifth Guru, Guru
Arjan who was roasted alive by the Mughal Emperor Jahangir. The next martyr would be the ninth Guru, Guru
Tegh Bahadur. He was beheaded by the Mughals while attempting to defend the religious rights
of Hindus. His son Guru Gobind Rai the tenth and final human Guru started a new Sikh community
called the Khalsa and ended the line of human Gurus by making the Guru Granth Sahib, the
Sikh Holy Book the last living Guru. We’ll look at both of these in a bit. So with that brief history out of the way,
let’s look at the core beliefs of Sikhism. One God The Sikh holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib’s
opening sentence is just two words. Ik Onkar – “The is only one God” Nanak made sure it was clear that the focus
was on “one”. Ik, doesn’t just mean one, it is literary the numeral 1. One God is by far the most important belief
in Sikhism. This may not be the kind of God you’re used to though. Sikhs believe in a
formless, genderless, universal god, beyond description. This God is all of reality, it
is within everything. They believe no idol or image could ever represent
this being, so they use the sacred symbol of Ik Oankar to represent it instead. Many
Sikhs refer to this one God by the name Waheguru, Wondrous Lord. Guru Nanak and his followers constantly emphasized
that this one could be understood in many different ways. No religion had a monopoly
on the Truth. Nanak’s One God could be known as Vishnu, Allah, the Tao, Yahweh, The Algorithm
or any other name or belief. There was no need to fight over whose god was the true
god, as they were all the same One. Recognize all mankind, whether Muslim or Hindu
as one. The same God is the Creator and Nourisher
of all; Recognize no distinctions among them.
The temple and mosque are the same; So are the Hindu worship and Muslim prayer.
Human beings are all one. – Guru Gobind Singh The lack of a gender for this One God means
that there is no difference between men and women in Sikhism. Sikhism was among the first
major world religions to make the radical suggestion that maybe women are human beings
too. Women in Sikhism have fought in battles, led
religious services, and even acted as some of the longest reigning leaders of the entire
community. Sikhism isn’t based on doing things to get
into some heaven or hell. Hell is just life on Earth, which your soul is constantly reborn
into after you die. Which is ehhh…pretty dark. You see, Sikhs believe in reincarnation and
karma, similar to Buddhists, Hindus, and Jains. But. Sikhs believe that karma is modified
by God. As in karma might decided what life your born into but God makes sure that everyone
can become a good person in their lifetime if they try. The goal of Sikh life is to break free from
the cycle of rebirth by merging their soul back into God’s soul. One do this by releasing that you are already
a part of god, you just need to let go of your ego. When your soul remerges back into God’s
this is called mukti, which is similar to Hinduism’s moksha and means liberation. When
you remerge your soul is released from the cycle of rebirth and death and becomes infinite,
timeless, and blissful. This is the closest thing Sikhs have to heaven. Maya Sikhs believe that God is reality, God is
the universe that we exist in. But we forget this because humans are distracted by illusion
or Maya, which is anything that takes your mind off God. Maya keeps people trapped in
the cycle of rebirth and death. Guru Nanak thought that Maya built a wall
between people and God. The wall of Maya is built with the 5 Thieves: Lust (Kham),
Anger (Krodh), Greed (Lobh),
Attachment (Moh), and Pride (ahankar). It is the duty of all Sikhs to avoid these
thieves. The five thieves are caused by haumai, literally
I-Myself. Haumai make people say I am this I am that, it separates you from others. Which
blocks you from realising your oneness with God. This ego causes people to live only for themselves,
to spew negativity, and to crave power and wealth. Such a person is called manmukh, facing
towards desires. Guru Nanak saw the world’s problems as the
negative effects of ego. Hindu v Muslim, Israeli v Palestinian, Sitting down wipers v Standing
up wipers All these conflicts are caused by Ego and
Maya. The Guru Granth Sahib said it is not religion, or race but ‘it is wealth that
divides brothers’ (GG: 417). But Guru Nanak taught that there was another
direction people could face. By being a spiritual person practicing Compassion (Daya),
Truth (Sat), Contentment (Santokh),
Humility (Nimrata) and Love (Pyar) and meditating on God you could instead become
gurmukh, facing towards the Guru. How does one become gurmukh and egoless? Well, Sikhism offers a path to follow that
can help, called the Three Pillars. Three Pillars The Three Pillars are: Naam Japo: Meditation on God and the reciting
and chanting of God’s Name—Waheguru. This is normally done in the morning and before
bed. This isn’t supposed to just be some mindless ritual either, Sikhs are supposed to genuinely
reflect on the qualities of God as they do this. Kirat Karni: – Working hard and making an
honest living. Guru Nanak said, “Only he who earns his
living by the sweat of his brow and shares his earnings with others has discovered the
path of righteousness.” Wand chhakna: – Sharing the fruits of your
labour with others, providing free food, and donating to the community. The Sikh tradition
of a communal meal (langar) at the gurdwaras is part of Wand Chhakna. The langar or communal free kitchen inside
a Sikh gurdwara, which is their equivalent of a church or mosque, is open to all who
visit. Regardless of caste, faith, or gender. These serve vegetarian food to all, not because
Sikhs have to be vegetarian but simply because that means all people of all diets can partake.
So if you want a taste of typical Punjabi food just visit a gurdwara. In Guru Nanak’s time, the idea of different
castes sitting together on the floor and eating side by side was a revolutionary act. Famously
the Mughal Emperor Akbar visited Guru Arjan and the Guru would not meet him until he partook
in a langar. Which the Emperor did, sitting side by side with peasants. Guru Nanak claimed an enlightened person are
‘those who view everyone equally, like the air touching king and beggar alike’ (GG:
272). Another vital part of Sikhism that isn’t one
of the Three Pillars is Seva – selfless service. Through service to their community, Sikhs
can become more humble and overcome their ego. Seva can include cleaning up the gurdwara,
preparing food or cleaning dishes in the langar or it can include volunteering, building things
for your community or subscribing and ringing the notification bell on educational Youtube
channels. Through remembering God’s name, honest work,
and sharing, along with selfless service, and avoiding the Five Thieves a person can
rid themselves of egoism and be released from the cycle of rebirth and death. The Khalsa Guru Gobind Rai was the son of the ninth Guru,
Tegh Bahadur, who was beheaded by the Mughals and his body was abandoned by his Sikh entourage.
They fled easily because no one could recognise them. So Guru Gobind decided the give Sikhs
a distinct look from now on so that they would be compelled to always uphold Sikh values. In 1699 Guru Gobind brought his Sikhs together
at Anandpur. After their morning prayer he stood in front of the huge crowd and demanded
a human sacrifice. The shocked crowd was silent for a while before one Sikh rose up and entered
the Guru’s tent. The Guru followed them in. And then……The guru comes out with blood
on his sword. He demands another sacrifice, another Sikh offers themselves and enters
the tent…..Again only the Guru comes back out of the tent, bloody sword in hand….again
another sacrifice….and again….until finally after the 5th sacrifice the Guru reamerges
with the 5 Sikhs all wearing saffron coloured robes The Guru declares these to be the panj pyarey,
the five beloved ones. They would form the centre of a new Sikh community called the
Khalsa. He offered them amrit, a bowl of sweetened
holy water. All five, who belong to different caste groups,
drank the amrit from the same bowl, which would have been a huge deal back then. This
signified that they had joined a new, casteless family, the Khalsa. Each of the volunteers had to leave behind
their old surnames or caste names and adopt the same surname, Singh. Which comes from
the Sanskrit word simbha, meaning lion…I KNOW RIGHT! It has no relation to the Bantu
word simba which also means lion, it’s just a weird coincidence. The Guru then begged the Five Beloved ones
to let him join their Khalsa. They offered him the amrit and the Guru became Guru Gobind
Singh. Women were admitted to the Khalsa, the same
way as men. After drinking the amrit they received the surname Kaur, which means princess. The Khalsa gave the Sikhs a new unified identity.
Tied together as one family, with one name, without caste with the goal of defending the
weak and promoting justice. Today many Sikhs still undergo the Amrit ceremony and take
the surnames Singh and Kaur. The Khalsa were also given new rules to follow
which includes the wearing of the panj kakaar or the Five K’s. kes – Uncut hair to represent discipline kargha – A small comb in the hair kirpan – A sword to uphold justice and protect
the weak, nowadays it’s usually a small sword. It is not an offensive weapon and the Sikh
Code of Conduct claims it can only be used to “destroy tyrants and oppressors. It must
not be used for anything else” kachhahira – A kind of loose fitting boxer
shorts, to represent sexual restraint and kara – A steel bracelet, it’s circular
shape represents the infinity of God Interestingly the turban is not one of the
Five K’s. Instead it’s worn to cover the Sikh’s long uncut hair, the kes. Turbans have become
essential to Sikh identity and hold very special significance to them. If you see someone wearing
a turban that vast majority of the time it will be a Sikh not a Muslim.
Guru Granth Sahib The Guru Granth Sahib is the Holy Book of
the Sikhs. It contains the teachings of the Gurus and acts as a spiritual guide for Sikhs
around the world. It is probably one of the only Holy Books
that contains not only the writing of the religions founders, written by themselves,
rather than after their death. But also the writing of people from other faiths. The writings
of Muslims and Hindus can be found throughout along with references to Judaism, Buddhism,
and Christianity. Before his death in 1708, the tenth Guru Gobind
Singh ended the line of human gurus by bestowing guruship on the Adi Granth, turning it into
the Guru Granth Sahib, making it similar to both the Bible or Koran and a living Prophet
at the same time. Guru means Guru, Granth means book and Sahib means lord. Since that moment, the Guru Granth Sahib has
been revered as the current living guru. It is treated with extreme care and respect. The Granth is not only read but sung, it’s
made up of thousands of hymns. Sikhs don’t have mass or service but a kirtan, meaning
communal singing. Normally these are set to classical Indian music.
Gurdwara Sikhs gather at gurdwaras, a word meaning
‘doorway to the Guru’. A gurdwara is only a gurdwara because it has a copy of the Guru
Granth Sahib in it. Men and women of all castes and social standing
gather there to join in prayer, singing, and eating. This is where you will find the langar. Anyone
can visit a Gurdwara and partake in the service and meal. You only need to follow basic etiquette.
Cover your head, remove your shoes, wash your hands as you enter, and don’t bring any tobacco
or drugs inside. The most important Gurdwara in the world is
the Hari Mandir or Golden Temple located in Amritsar, India. In 1604 Guru Arjan completed work on the Golden
Temple and had the Guru Granth Sahib installed in it. As a gesture of religious tolerance Guru Arjan
invited a Muslim, Mian Mir, to lay the foundation stone of the Golden Temple. The Temple has four doors opening on all four
sides, to show an openness to all cultures and peoples. But on the inside only one door
leads to the inner sanctum, indicating that all paths and beliefs eventually lead to the
One God. The Golden Temple is the most visited place
in the world with around 6 million visitors each year. The Langar at the Golden Temple
serves a free meal to about 100,000 people each day, making it the world’s largest
free serving kitchen. All run and staffed by volunteers. The waiting list to volunteer in the Golden
Temple has hundreds of thousands of names on it. The people on that list will be waiting for
a long time, a good way for them to pass the time productively would be to listen to audiobooks
on Audible. While researching this video I listened to Sikhism A Very Short Introduction
by Eleanor Nesbit which is an excellent bite sized introduction to Sikhism stated in very
clear language for people that are completely new to the topic. If you want to go right to the source audible
has The Complete 90+ hour Guru Granth Sahib also available. Audible makes it easier than ever to fit audiobooks

even close to covering everything. I probably only covered about 1%. One video simply can’t
cover everything. Religions are too diverse, too deep, and mean too many different things
to different people. But learning even the basics of anything that millions of people
deeply care about gives us an insight into our fellow humans worldview and I hope you
enjoyed it 😀 You can find all the sources used in the description.

  • No one actually stands up to wipe, right?

  • Siskm and Judaism are very similar in belief. Idk why you people always put the humanistic christian god with judaism. In judaism god has no form he is everything similar to sikhsm

  • this is a really well made video. more important than you probably realize, given how rare it is for people to really learn anything about sikh culture/religion. that which is understood is easier to not fear.

  • “They serve vegetarian food so that people of all diets can eat it”
    people on the carnivore diet

  • This is one sikh video

  • I carry a Glock and kirpan

  • Sikhs try to releasse ego but love the Mercedes Benz. That can not release.

  • best video channel for atheist….

  • This is incredibly interesting! I had no idea what Sikhism was until this video showed up in my recommendations. Apparently, it's just all of my political views but with extra God, and honestly I'm down. If I was religious I'd convert, but cooking a big meal and feeding the homeless will do just fine either way! This video was very well put together and educational, keep up the great work! Definitely subscribed.

  • I hear they train attack dogs.
    "Sikh 'em boy!" 🙃

  • It’s a tool song.

  • Who cares

  • Thanks bro

  • I can see a lot similarities with Orthodox Christianity in Sikhism

  • You made this topic very interesting and informative. I was so excited to learn more about Sikhism and its beliefs and can respect it for its openness to all faiths. I will download those books from audible today!

  • Love that Age of Empires 2 death sound at 6:23

  • Even though I don't believe in a higher power I really respect the values I really like the fact that they fight for others religious freedoms

  • If I was to a Christian I would be a Sikh. I have a lot of respect for them, they are such nice people.

  • is it me or does this sound reaaaaally close to Jedi's worship of The Force?

  • Thanks for the overview! 🙂 I always wondered what made a Sikh "tick". 😉 I didn't know if there was any reason for the sword thing, turban, etc. Nice religion, very similar to my own except for the whole "god" thing. But the whole knowledge, equality, living ones life to the best of their ability, helping others in order to help yourself ('get into good karma', or just make you feel good for doing it….volunteering, donating, etc) and the whole concept of 'everyone is equal'. Pretty much aligns nicely with my religious beliefs of which I have been holding and living since I was 17 (I'm now 50).
    PS: I'm a Satanist.

  • Ok this religion honestly sounds like the one I would choose if I were to become religious again. And I'm only 5 minutes in. To me the mere idea of a being powerful enough to create life itself requiring worship just seems petty. It would be like if you or I made robot children and started breaking their toys because they didn't kneel before us chanting. Like if you think about any religion which has worship it's kind of shortsighted and illogical, like if I had the power to create anything I don't think I would care if something I created on whim said my name as part of an insult. I would have better things to attend to like the formation of new elements never even conceived before. And if we are talking about a higher being it would be logical to think they have more knowledge and experience than us so what purpose would they have to devote themselves wholeheartedly to a certain group of people on a single planet that are the only ones of the bunch that had the right religion, it's like if I started a garden then sat myself in front of it from sowing of the seed till harvest, not wavering even for sustenance relief, just sat there observing for any signs of a bad fruit. Even I have better things to do.

    Because of that I have had a Horton hears a who perspective on any possible diety, that we are so small and insignificant the idea of a being taking notice of us is an impossibility, and if there was such a being we wouldn't understand it in our sapien sense of form. That the creator of all things could be a gaseous cloud or giant rock. That other life as we know could be of the same sense, that we are surrounded by alien life and simply don't realize it due to our preconceived notions of what intelligent life it like, that it has to be bipedal and speaking a decipherable language. When we have examples on Earth of life in unexpected forms that communicate in unusual ways. Sharks use electromagnetism to scan the water, whales communicate via Sonic vibrations their calls can reverberate for miles, ants communicate via pheromones. Some animals communicate solely on a chemical and cellular level with no need for more complex communication. Who is to say these aren't intelligent, they have succeeded very well in their niches and ants in particular are greater in volume and weight than us.

    I can't wait to watch the rest of this.

  • As a Sikh, Wow. This is a really good and informative video on sikhi and one of the if not the best I've seen by a non-sikh

  • this was very well done and informative – you just won me over and i subscribed!

  • Thankyou for the great video

  • The Sikhs haven't figured out yet that usurious capitalism is the theft of labor. So all that hard work is being stolen by a financial Kabal…

  • I myself being a Hindu respects Sikhism.. In our family tradition, eldest boy of the family excepts Sikhism… My uncle is a Sikh , he has 3 sons… One of them is a Sikh…two are Hindus….
    All religion based on karma like bhuddism, Jainism, Sikhism, Shaivism are all extended branches of Hinduism

  • Look at that , I've been practicing Sikhism and didn't even know it . Thanks for the video I'm glad it came up on my feed 😁

  • How beautiful and enlightening.

  • This disrespect of Sikhism by both Hindus and Muslims is just disgraceful. Like, they don't even have the mental power to think before writing and their ego is just supreme. This is the reason Sikhism is different. Both Hinduism and Islam has become a business with each one either trying to slander each other, trying to say, I am best, my product is original, someone give me award and yet not a single comment by a Sikh who says that Sikhism is best like so-called Hindus or trying to defame and convert others like Muslims. Guru Nanak saw this same bazar of religions and how each and every one of them, just pimped out their religious beliefs.
    Haume…being run by mayajaal.
    Also for Sikhs who are trying to explain everyone about what Sikhism is not xyz, just don't; tell them "okay, fine, your ego is supreme". That person just failed in the first test of Mukti or judgement and at least in that process, Sikhs will not fan their own ego and running into the same mayajaal.
    Also, this is a best-animated video on Sikhism made by a non-Sikh. If possible please make gurus static.

  • Could you please!!! make a video on Sanatan Dharm. How all indian religions come from Sanatan Dharm and how Hinduism Jainism Buddhism and Sikhism are the same.

  • This is cool and all, but if you're a pacifist and nobody else is, you will not be long for this world. I guess if you are waiting to be dead anyway that doesnt matter.

  • everytime he says 6 i just hear sikhs

  • Try telling a video on Christianity

  • This is actually really neat. Though I don't have any reason to believe their claims about the nature of the universe, I really appreciate the conclusions they draw from those beliefs. Wish more people were Sikh. lol

  • Sikhs are sound.

  • What a Sikh vid man.

  • What is Paganism?

  • You are literally the first person I've heard pronounce the Sikh name correctly. Sick not Seek. Other than actual Sikh's anyway.

  • Sikhs believe in the right to bear arms. I can get behind that.

  • 5:56 there was only 1 of the major religions that didnt value women as equal people. can ya guess what one it was.

  • Very interesting video. But what do they mean with "sexual restraint"? Is sex bad according to Sikhism? Or is it some sort of symbol against rape?

  • I thought it was pronounced "seek" not "sick"

  • Anyone want to become Sikh in future??

  • ਵਧੀਆਂ ਜੀ

  • Tunak Tunak Tun!

  • Thank you for this my dude

  • Have you read the guru granth sahib?

  • 2:05 The word Guru means deceiver. The meaning was changed to teacher in later times. Al-Gharur is first recognized as The Arch Deceiver. The Beatles found this out the hard way. Look for etymologies and word origins where their meanings are routed from its base.

  • Siks are sickkk xddd

  • This video is beautiful

  • very great and near precise video

  • I wish I had been able to get this information, easily I know it EXISTED 25 years ago, when I was in college. There was a family of Sikhs that attended the military school I was in and I was curious about what their dress and religion was about. Great video!

  • Love for the spiritually free 👏

  • Subscribed for the seva ❤👏

  • half of the comments : wow such nice religion
    the other half : its vegetarian not vegan sorry i will pass

  • I had a general idea of Sikisum its interesting to know I was pretty close. This was an interesting film.

  • I have been thinking more about god lately and (having watched this video) was surprised to learn of the parallels between Sikhism and my own beliefs. I was raised Episcopal (happily so) but I am thinking the world needs more Sikhs.

  • This violent religion blew up a plane off the coast of Ireland and even till date has been violent till date with religious and partly ethnic supremacist separatism in India.

    And charity done by them? Every other religion too does it.

  • Couldn't you have just used Pictures, instead of these animations. They are Gurus, if you were lucky enough to be there at their time, you would not even be able to look them right in the eye, your knee would bend and your head would bow down. We don't need people coming into Sikhi, so either make a respectable video or none at all.

  • it's when you dedicate ur life to doing cool moves on your skateboardz

  • Sikh ideals and core values align very heavily with my own, and I can see myself respecting them very heavily. Having been more or less around Christianity for as long as I remember, I see the good Christianity can bring (Helping the common man, bring hope to people who need that spark), but I can also see the corrupt underbelly it brings (Intolerance of Muslims, Homosexuals and those considered "Different") It has long been a core value of mine that and I Quote some who's name I forget at the moment "There is only one race, The Human Race" I do want to take a deeper look into Sikhism and see if I could convert.

  • 1:00 was that Indian accent on purpose lol

  • might be the best religion there is

  • This is great and all,
    but why is there food on the FLOOR 17:01 ?

  • Very informative and insightful. Thanks again!

  • There's only 14mil. Jews?

  • What!?
    There's people that wipe while standing up?

  • At least God is paying for the wall.

  • The animations were great

  • I associate openly and peacefully with people of many races, ethnicities, creeds, with tankies, anarchkiddies, fashes, and evening people of religions formed in opposition to my own.

    I will never, NEVER make common cause with a stand-up wiper!

  • Thanku so much sir .you done great seva very well explained .sikhs believe in upgration ..bhnade khoj dil har roj na fer pharchani mahe..mean we must do meximum inventions to bring world up Nd better

  • According to Sikhism we can learn meximum Nd make better life not to stuck back thosand years ..

  • You are an idiot if you confused Siks with Muslims.

  • Let’s all learn from this drunk Irish disappointment.

  • Waheguru ji ka Khalsa Waheguru ji ki Fateh..This is a Sikh greeting which says "The Khalsa belongs to The Almighty Lord and All Glory belongs to the Almighty Lord

  • Sikhs are bros. Literally everyone knows that.

  • I’m new. What’d you do to that sloth?

  • There are people who "wipe" standing up? WTF is wrong with people?

  • I should change my religion to Sikhism because my Christian religion still spreads hate and violence while propagandasing about peace and love that makes me puke.

  • 12:00 how many people came out of the tent alive?


  • Not everyone is unable to see the subtle difference in headwear and massive difference in dogma. I like Sikhs. Muslims not so much…

  • Question: Can a non Indian become a Sikh? If all humans are equal, it would be difficult to deny a non Indian The opportunity.

  • Pretty sure it's pronounced "wa-hey-guru"

  • So Sikhs were Indians who bowed to their Muslim Mughal overlords by lying to themselves that they didn't actually bow to them since they didn't actually converted to Islam. Nice.

  • Good video bruh, but too strong accents damn.

  • With this kind of thinking at the core; a saint is one who is capable of achieving liberation from the cycle of reincarnation but instead chooses to come back over and over again when they don't have to, simply to help those trapped.

  • 5:16 "No religion had a monopoly on the truth."
    Except, apparently, them. Right? That's what they're claiming here.

    Anyone who claims all gods are the same being reveals their ignorance. All of these religions teach completely different & even contradictory things about God, man, morality, the eternal state, etc. So how can they all be the same being? That makes no sense even on a logic level. Someone who says this has not bothered to educate themselves on the teachings of these various religions.

  • Jai sanatana Dharma

  • Being a South Indian Hindu, a lot of the things you said about the one god and all gods of all religions being the same also applies to Hinduism. We believe in para bramhan, who is the one god and all gods are the same and everything.

  • Sikhs are probably just too good for this world in general and a lot of them really do live up to the teachings of the Gurus and live truly Godly lives.

  • Please do an episode on Orthodox Christianity.

  • Before now I knew almost nothing of Sikhism. I did notice a few ppl from India didn't have a good opinion of them, but I then noticed that Punjabi always seemed more considerate than most ppl so I became curious. Perhaps those few ppl were jealous.

  • These vids are top notch for people like me, curious but genuinely ignorant of a lot of the subject matter you tackle particularly these religious vids

  • Sikhs are awesome. I just hope people open their minds and accept:)

  • so is it sik or seek? I always thought it was seek
