Purpose of Sikhs and Society

It is our hope that the articles on this website, some in the nature of online conversations on Sikh issues, would encourage wider discussion. Such discussion on several of the subjects would not have been thought of within the community too some years back. The Sikh youth of today, however, is like all other youth, more critical, has questioning attitude and looks to reasoned presentations and interpretations that while rooted in the eternal truths revealed by the Gurus are explicated in a manner, mode and metaphor that is able to get their attention and help them to relate to realities of life. We recognize that Sikhs, like all ardent believers, hold our Gurus and Gurbani in great reverence. Sikh precepts, praxis and related issues have been heard and talked mostly in the environs of Gurdwaras and homes. It was in the main a one way communication, received in a devotional mode, with seldom if any question expected or asked. Our expectation is that not so on this site – we would like the participants to open up and let the flood gates of different understandings, interpretations, experiences and emotions flow to be shared. So let us talk, communicate. Let visit to this site become a learning opportunity and in some ways a liberating experience.
