On my recent trip to India, i had planned to convert to Sikhism but to my utter surprise Sikhs weren't eager to welcome me into the Sikh fold and i also found that Sikhism is eroding in India. As per my understanding Sikhism Is meant for the whole humanity but Sikhs of India seems to think the other way around.

I understand how you feel. Sikhi is a way of living, not a religion. Some people look like Sikhs, but they do not live as Sikhs. Some people do not look like Sikhs, but they live as true Sikhs. You will know a true Sikh because his face is shining and joyful, he is alert, open and warmhearted, and he or she looks for any way that presents itself to serve others. After you spend time with a true Sikh you will feel blessed and uplifted. If it is your destiny to serve at Guru Ji's feet, then it will be so. Between a Sikh and his Guru is just a matter of time. It is an affair of the heart.

Great answer! What does it mean by it "is just a matter of time" between a Sikh and his Guru?

Sikhi is a way of living not a religion what does that mean. i have heard in the past too some Sikhs saying so and even i have heard some Hindus saying so about their own faith. Does that mean that all the Dharmic faiths are actually not faiths but a way of living.

Yes. Dharma is a way of living that leads you back to merger in the One. There are many Dharmas. Sikhi is ours.

mkaur Ji - It means that if you belong to him it's just a matter of time until you see, hear and understand the story that lies beyond words.
