Gurdwara - Etiquette


Gurdwara - Etiquette

It can be daunting to go the Gurdwara on your own or for the first time, if you are not from a Punjabi Sikh background. You really want to go because your heart is telling you to do it. But you worry about doing something wrong and sticking out?

Sat Sri Akaal,

The idea for this group came to me today, as I was going to the Gurdwara with another Singhnee from this forum :-) As chance had it, we arrived at a time where the Gurdwara was really busy and also we had never been to this Gurdwara before ! Even the most simple things such as finding your way around can make you nervous.. so many people and not so many non-Indian faces in the crowd (if any). Please share your tips for going to the Gurdwara, any programmes that you find helpful etc. , so that we may all learn from each other. I hope that this will help you to enjoy and really benefit from visiting a Gurdwara on a regular basis.

Also, if there is anything you don't understand and always wanted to know - don't hold back ask the question and surely some of the desi forum members will be happy to explain. There are no stupid questions.... but every question answered here will help you to relax and be more confident when you go - so that you can concentrate on the experience, rather than feeling distracted and being a distraction for others.
