Winston Churchill taking about bravery of Sikhs

If you a reading this, welcome to my notes corner. I'm planning to keep my personal findings on the net. One of the readers came to our community with search about Sikhs and Winston Churchill, so I decided to do my own search.

Sir Winston Churchill was very well conversant with the bravery of the Sikhs, who had fought for Britain in the World Wars. Churchill while speaking in the British…

Thanks Danka, I am a Christian minister who is also worshipping regularly as a Sikh in a Wolverhampton gurdwara. This is a personal quest concerning multiple religious participation, but I am also, with permission of church and gurdwara, writing my experience up for birmingham university. I look forward to any help you can give in getting deeper into Sikhism, 

Best wishes,

Hi Danka
A close friend is Punjabi Sikh, was talking about books and religion one evening and I said I had never read the Sikh Scripture. I am now two thirds of the way through the most beautiful book I have read (English transliteration). I have been sent YouTube links to some kirtan and I can only describe the feeling when I listen as being a homecoming. The Shri Guru Granth Sahib is slow going as I am grasping new words and concepts for the first time, but I already want to reread once I finish.

I have started learning to speak punjabi and have just started to learn to write also... wow!... Hard work, but it is good to be able to give respect to another through learning their mother tongue.

Thank you Danka.

I'm a Japanese-Australian. Born in Japan into Zen Buddhist family.
I grew up chanting sutras, but Buddhism didn't suit me...because I always knew there is One God.

I took up Yoga in my mid 20s.
When I was 30yo I met Kundalini Yoga
(Hariatma Kaur is my spiritual name given by 3HO)
through which I discovered Sikhi.

At 42yo, I'm more and more into reading SGGS and chanting Nitnem (rather than Kundalini Yoga)

I've been happy being 'Sikhi at heart' but I feel I need more.

I found this site when I was searching for a Gurdwara I could visit.
Hoping to make new friends & learn more.

Thank you

Thank you for welcoming me! My name is Robert I am from Arizona in the United States. I was brought to this website by accident. I was searching for the owner of a Bible that I have accidentally acquired. I found his address on-line but his house is has been replace by a Gurdwaras. One thing lead to another and here i am. Hope to make new friends.

Hmm, how to answer this question. Well, to start, I've always been spiritual. When I was younger, I knew that certain religions were not for me (by researching and listening to my internal self). I spent years, researching different religions, but just now discovered Sikhi. And I love it! I feel I have been Sikhi all my life, but never knew it. I was actually looking for a kara, found gosikhi.com and noticed the partnership beginning to form (Between you and godikhi.com). So I clicked on the newtosikhi link and Voila! I am here, and learning as much as I can! :D
