Dear anonymous,

    Sikhism is vast ! we cant explain it here and nobody gets to know everything at once. You learn with time. Just dont stop learning. Start with doing japji. Then with time, start doing chaupai sahib , jaap sahib , anand sahib n tavprasaad suvaiye. It will take time. But if you start doing this nitnem everyday , it will be great. Do rehraas sahib in the evening n kirtan sohila at night. Rest you know the common things like we shouldnt cut are hair, dont eat non-veg, etc etc. If you stuck somewhere, ask me about it. I will love to help you !

Waheguru ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh Bhenji/Veer ji.

The most loveable thing about Sikhi is that you can do any paath/prayer at any time anywhere... as long as you are contemplating on God's name and remembering Him :) however, according to the rehat maryade (Sikh code of Conduct, followed by Amritdhari or baptised Sikhs) you do Panj Baania (5 Prayers) in the morning (before dawn) which are Japji Sahib,Jaap Sahib, Chaupai Sahib, Tav Prasad Swaiye and Anand Sahib... which all together takes about 45 minutes. Then in the afternoon before dusk a Sikh is to do Rehiras Sahib (10-15 minutes) and at night before going to bed a Sikh is to do Kirtan Sohila (2-5 minutes). I hope this helped. Bhul chuk muaf karna (forgive me if i have written anything wrong). Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji ki Fateh.

For Sikhs there is no such thing as conversion. Your identity as a Sikh is between you and your Guru. Your daily practice and lifestyle will evolve as your relationship with your Guru evolves. Your identity as a Sikh lives in your heart, not in your head. It manifests all the time in your actions and your words. A Sikh is one who lives with an open heart, an attitude of gratitude to the One Creator, and who serves everyone.

The answer is simple: keep up and keep going and let the Guru reveal to you what you need to do next.

If you cannot yet read Gurmukhi, then read Gurbani in translation. Here is a link to English translation of Japji Sahib. You can read this OUT LOUD every morning. More translations are available here
