2015-10-30 08:30:47 -0500 marked best answer Sikh Views On Contraception And Sexuality?

Can someone please explain or give references to various sites or books that explain Sikh views on sexuality and contraception? I am writing a report on it and comparing these values and principles to other top religions in the world. I never really went in depth on how Sikhi deals with sexuality etc, and there are so many different articles and sites out there that I'm not sure if they are valid or accurate, so just thought I'd come here and ask.. Thanks

When I tie my turban I put part of it in my mouth (the first laar) as it is practical and easy for me to tie. But I have heard people complain that putting the turban in your mouth is wrong and disrespectful. I don’t understand why it is considered disrespectful?

Without putting it in my mouth I would have extreme difficulties tying it. I apologize if my ignorance has caused anyone offense.

I've heard that many Muslims think it is ok to lie, its part of their religion...since its apart of their religion (if this is true) but is it right? how do we accept that? why do Hindus cut their hair? i mean there are many things that i think are wrong in other religions but is it wrong to think that they are wrong (weird ?..i know!) ??? thanks!

2015-10-30 08:30:46 -0500 marked best answer Is Sikhism An Ideology Or Religion?

Rhere is a major confusion in me regarding Sikhism in general, because some people refer to it as an ideology so to speak and many refer to it as a religion. Now as far as i understand there is a thin line of difference between ideology and religion. so plz if some body cud clarify two point for me

a) is Sikhism an ideology or a religion. b) if it is an ideology then people who are non sikhs and yet come under the realm of this ideology be called sikhs, even though they are not one..

Is that true that every person we meet is God? I have heard that God takes form of people. But there are many bad people so how can God take a form of a bad person.

2013-09-19 16:22:49 -0500 marked best answer Why Worship Pictures & Statues??

I wanted to know that why do we pray and worship all the pictures? Are all the pictures of our guru real? Who has seen him what does he looks like??? We were advise to simply follow the guru granth shaib and the teachings in it. Then why do we worship all the picture and even statues? As we are aware that god is in us and he is everywhere. Why do we have to go to the gurdwara and pray as god is everywhere???We have to pray to the almighty god who made us and brought us to this world. Please i hope that you will be able to help me answer these questions. Thank you

2013-08-28 21:00:56 -0500 marked best answer Am I A Good Sikh?

I am a Sikh aged 18 currently at Univerity. I don't drink, smoke, take drugs. I have however cut hair. On recent social gatherings with friends i have noticed a large majority of pagwala drinking and smoking.

Am I a good sikh if I recite Japji sahib and rehras daily but have cut hair, or are pagwala better sikhs even if they take intoxicants.

Please help shed some light on this topic

2013-05-03 22:07:04 -0500 marked best answer Homosexuality and Being a Sikh?

Many of the discussions centered around homosexuality basically state that being Gay is accepted as the way God created you. When a Sikh friend was confronted about this belief he said it may be ok to be Gay but Sikhism would not permit sexual intercourse between homosexuals even in a committed, monogamous union because it is a form of unnatural lust.

My question is can two "married" homosexuals have sexual intercourse and still be following Gods teachings?
