      Here are some facts about Sikhism, its practices, beliefs, sikh temples, sacred book, founder, ten gurus, Khalsa Panth and more. Origin of Sikhism The Sikhism is a religion that originated in India in the 15th century and was developed in the context of the conflict between the doctrines of Hinduism and Islam.   The Sikhs have two Holy Books for their guidance and revelation of their underlying beliefs and principles as laid down by the Ten Gurus. These Holy Scriptures are called 1. Sri Guru Granth Sahib and; 2. Dasam Granth. The Dasam Granth is a composition primarily of the Tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. The word 'Dasam' in Punjabi means 'Tenth'.

    "In the summer of , when the creation of the state of Pakistan was formally announced, ten million people--Muslims and Hindus and Sikhs--were in flight. By the time the monsoon broke, almost a million of them were dead, and all of northern India was in arms, in terror, or in hiding. The only remaining oases of peace were a scatter of little villages lost in the remote reaches of the frontier/5(4). Sikhism is a faith whose followers are called "Sikhs". The word Sikh means Student or Discipline. Their holy book is the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.. Many sources call Sikhism a monotheistic religion, According to Eleanor Nesbitt, English renderings of Sikhism as a monotheistic religion "tend misleadingly to reinforce a Semitic understanding of monotheism, rather than Guru Nanak's mystical.

    The service consists of singing of the liturgy, as well as the exposition of Sikh history, tradition, and theology. Non-Sikhs are always welcome. Sikh gurdwaras all over the world usually run free community kitchens, which provide meals to all. These kitchens are run and funded by volunteers.   * Sikhs believe everyone, men and women, has equal status before God, who created the universe and all faiths. Human beings are encouraged to develop their moral character through generosity, humility and self-reliance. * Sikh means “seeker of knowledge” in Punjabi, the language of India’s Punjab region and of Sikhism’s holy books.
