How should we deal with people we disagree with?- By: Manvir Singh

ਸਿੰਘ ਸਿੰਘ ਪਰ ਸ਼ਸਤ੍ਰ ਨ ਕਰੇ | ਜਾਨ ਗੁਰੂ ਖਾਲਸੇ ਤੇ ਡਰੇ |੪੩|

“A Sikh should never attack another Sikh. He should recognise others as the Guru Khalsa and should remain fearful of them.”

(Rehatnama: Bhai Desa Singh Ji)



It is very sad and shameful to hear about the incident at Frankfurt Gurdwara that took place on Sunday 14th May, where a Parchaarik (preacher) was physically attacked and his Dastaar (turban) removed by an angry mob that had come to oppose him, followed by a clash by… Continue

Power of Listening

Power of Listening

God has given us Two ears But One Mouth. It indicates that we should listen more and talk less. We can listen well only when we keep our mouth shut. In this article we will discuss The Power of Listening. 

The ability to listen is one of the most influencing skills available to us. Listening not only adds to our abilities, it pleases the person to whom we are listening. Michael Nichols says in his book, ‘The Lost Art of Listening’ …..“To listen is to pay attention,…

Achieve Big with Little Effort

Achieve Big, with little Effort

This is a common feature with we people (barring exceptions), to grab maximum with little effort. One desires to have whatever attracts the mind.  This can be termed as attachment or greed. Attachment and Greed are needed for the development of  personality, of course these must be  channelized properly and are within the limited frame.  These are the two powers which make parents work hard and what not for bringing up their…

Hinduization of Sikh Faith

1 Illustrated: Hinduization of Sikh Faith & History

Last week’s announcement by the VHP of putting portraits of Guru Gobind Singh and Sree Guru Granth Sahib in Hindu Mandirs has shocked Sikhs worldwide. The fact is that attacks on the Sikh faith and history have been ongoing for years in order to show Sikhs to be a part of Hinduism.

Darshan

I woke up earlier than usual on darshan day. The time must have been a little after midnight.

Something seemed different that day. With difficulty I lifted my head and peeped out of the small

window of my hut. Although I could not see anything due to the pitch darkness of the night, I sensed

some activity in the trees. I closed my eyes and listened. To my surprise I sensed the trees were in the

same jovial mood as they were when spring was approaching. Winter had just… Continue
