What Do Sikhs Believe about Christ’s Crucifixion?

Sikhs respect that Christ was Martyr (Shaheed) and had the ability to forgive the sins of others. We deeply understand Shaheedi/Martyrdom as two Sikh Gurus and many Sikhs throughout our history have given Shaheedi for the Panth. Sikhs also believe that saints who have reached that high state of Spirituality (Karam Khand), have the ability to forgive people of their sins. However, Sikhs do not believe in the notion that one must give blood in order to forgive sins. We disagree with the idea that one must give/sacrifice something to receive forgiveness. Sikhi teaches us that the forgiveness of sins comes from chanting God’s name which is within us and cleansing our insides with Naam (God’s Name). 


How Can We Build a Relationship with Gurbani?

By considering both the quality and quantity of our time spent with Gurbani, we can begin to immerse ourselves more into it. Also by reading more Gurbani, we start to understand Gurbani more and thus strengthen our relationship with Guru Sahib Ji. Along with financial Dasvandh, dedicating at least 10% of our day (2.4 hours) towards Guru Sahib Ji and Gurbani, is just as important. In addition, integrating Rehit (Code of Conduct) into our lives, makes a big difference within our relationship with Gurbani.

How Did Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji Get Shaheedi (Martyrdom) and What Can We Learn?

Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji was beheaded by the executioner named Jalaal-Din in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, India. Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji teaches us that nothing is permanent in this world, not even our life. After witnessing the Shaheedi (Martyrdom) of their three Gursikhs (Sikhs of the Guru) in front of their eyes, Guru Ji lived up to their name by not only mastering the use of a sword but also by sacrificing their life to the Tegh (Sword) so that others could continue to practice their faith.

Who was Bhai Gurdaas Ji ?

Bhai Gurdaas Ji was the nephew of Guru Amar Das Ji (Third Sikh Guru) and was married to Bibi Amro Ji (the daughter of Guru Angad Dev Ji). Bhai Gurdaas Ji was dedicated to the Guru’s house and wrote amazing poetry describing the history of our Gurus and explaining different Gurmat concepts in Gurbani. HIs writings are famously known as Bhai Gurdaas Ji dian Vaaran (Vaaran Bhai Gurdaas Ji).
