Guru Nanak “Love the saints of every faith: Put away thy pride. Remember the essence of religion Is meekness and sympathy, Not fine clothes, Not the Yogis garb and ashes, Not the blowing of the horns, Not the shaven head, Not long prayers, Not recitations and torturings, Not the ascetic way, But a life of goodness and purity, Amid the worlds temptations.” Mara F.
The Sikh ceremony of rebirth takes place in a clean and secluded location at any chosen time. The new initiates agree to: Worship one God. Read the Guru Granth. Join the Sikh congregation. Serve others. Refrain from worshiping any created object, or living thing. Amrit Mara F.
