I often get asked,"Well how do you know Sikhism is the right religion, maybe one of these small religions that no one hears about is the right religion, what makes you think yours is?" How should i respond to this and how would you respond to this?

Great answer anon! I would answer this as: "I don't believe there is such a thing as a right or wrong religion. This question seems to imply that there is only one path to God, but there are many paths. The very root of Sikhism is about accepting all, not about hating other religions. I think life is about being true to your religion and committing to it. I have nothing to prove to you about my religion and my path in life." There is a difference in this type of question that you have been asked "what makes you think yours is?" versus asking somebody questions about their religion to gain a deeper understanding- it has a different tone to it.

sarab dharam me shraisht dharam har ka naam jap nirmal karam ^ (i hope this is right, someone correct me if I am wrong)

^ the greatest religion of all is chanting god's name.

Both StrongKaur and anon hit the nail on the head. Not only is any spiritual path not intrinsically "right" or "wrong" or better or worse, but really there is no such thing as "Sikhism." Sikhi is not a religion; it's a way of living; a dharma. A Dharma is a path of action in life. If one has a deep longing to experience the One in All, then that person will find their path. If the Sikh Dharma is your spiritual path in life, then it will unfold naturally. The Guru chooses his Sikh. The Sikh does not choose his Guru.
