Ingredients of a Sikh :sikhsmile:

One part saint, one part soldier,

One part that's always learning

As one grows older.

One part service, one part sword,

One part that's ever-evolving

On life's drawing-board.

One part spiritual, one part political,

One part that aims to expose

All that's hypocritical.

One part fearless, one part unthreatening,

One part that continues to hear

When the din is deafening.

One part meditative, one part martial,

One part that's eyes remain open

Yet is completely impartial.

One part kettle, one part kirpan,

One part that keeps collecting knowledge

As the clock ticks on.

One part kirtan, one part prayer,

One part that sheds light on it all

So the whole sangat can share.

One part devotion, one part action,

One part that speaks the truth

Regardless of sanction.

One part candle, one part flame,

One part literal translation

Of our famed "Sikh" name.

One part Nanak, nine parts thereafter,

Blessed by Guru Granth Sahib,

Our eternal chapter.

- Harmohanjit Singh Pandher

Here are my thoughts

The full form of a Sikh

S = SHAHADAT...martyrdom...every Sikh's aim of life

I = IBADAT...worship...every Sikh's duty in life

K = KHIDMAT...service/sewa...every Sikh's priviledge in life

H = HIFAZAT ...protection (of the weak)...every Sikh's responsibility in life

Guru Fateh

PS : in case some of the sangat thinks why i pasted this from sikhsangat.com, they know me pretty well. i posted my articles from sikhnet on sikhsangat and now from sikhsangat over here. ki kariye dimag kadi kadi chalda hunda hai na :oops:
