Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh, Is there a difference between taking Sikh Vows and Receiving Amrit? Or is the term "Sikh Vows" referring to the process of receiving Amrit? Thanks!

There are two levels of commitment in Sikh Dharma. They naturally evolve from one another.

Sikh Vows:

  1. God is One
  2. The Siri Guru Granth Sahib (Shabad Guru) is the only Guru of a Sikh
  3. Keep your form. Hairs uncut and worn up. Turban in public. Kara
  4. Sadhana in Amrit Vela
  5. Earn Righteously
  6. Service and sharing
  7. Vegetarian
  8. No intoxicants
  9. Sikhs shall be celibate if single - monogamous if married

Amrit Sanchar:

All the above and...

  1. Wear cotton bana
  2. Keep all five Ks
  3. Recite the five Nitnem banis daily
