If you go to Hindu temple and not necessarily bow down to "devi, devte" but sit down in pooja and pray to One Supreme Formless God, is that acceptable or sin?

Basically, if you go visit Hindu temple, but you think of "one" God. If you have to go there with a friend, and respect "God/Goddesses" as well, because they all are created from Akal Purkh as well and mentioned in Gurbani as well. So if you sit in pooja, but remember "one" God during the prayer and pray to that one God in you heart throughout the pooja, is that okay or is that a sin or against Gurmat?

That is perfectly fine.... You are not committing any sin. It's good to respect other religions too. Just worship that one god and do good deeds. That's what it matters.

When you bow down, you are just bowing down to a stone, which is not a sin, its just an activity that yields no result. you can find any stone outside.
