ਸਿੱਖੀ (Sikhism)

ਸਿੱਖੀ (ਉਚਾਰਨ: sikkhī) ਇੱਕ ਰੱਬ ਨੂੰ ਮੰਨਣ ਵਾਲਾ ਧਰਮ ਹੈ ਜਿਸਦੀ ਨੀਂਹ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਦੇਵ ਨੇ 15ਵੀਂ ਸਦੀ ਵਿੱਚ ਦੱਖਣੀ ਏਸ਼ੀਆ ਦੇ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਖੇਤਰ ਵਿਖੇ ਰੱਖੀ। ਮੰਨਣ ਵਾਲਿਆਂ ਦੀ ਗਿਣਤੀ ਮੁਤਾਬਕ ਇਹ ਦੁਨੀਆਂ ਦਾ ਪੰਜਵਾਂ ਵੱਡਾ ਧਰਮ ਹੈ। ਸਿੱਖੀ ਸ਼ਬਦ ਸਿੱਖ ਤੋਂ ਬਣਿਆ ਹੈ ਜਿਸ ਦਾ ਅਰਥ ਹੈ ਪੱਕਾ ਅਤੇ ਯੋਗ ਚੇਲਾ। ਸਿੱਖੀ ਦਾ ਅਧਾਰ ਇੱਕ ਰੱਬ ਅਤੇ ਦਸ ਗੁਰੂ ਦੀਆਂ ਸਿੱਖਿਆਵਾਂ ਹਨ ਜੋ ਸਿੱਖਾਂ ਦੇ ਧਾਰਮਕ ਪੁਸਤਕ ਅਤੇ ਰਹਿਬਰ ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਵਿੱਚ ਦਰਜ ਹਨ। ਸਿੱਖ ਧਰਮ ਦੇ ਦਰਸ਼ਨ ਨੂੰ ਗੁਰਮਤਿ ਕਿਹਾ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ ਜਿਸਦਾ ਮੁੱਖ ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਵਿੱਚ ਯਕੀਨ ਰੱਖਣਾ ਹੈ ਜਿਸਨੂੰ ਇੱਕ ਓਅੰਕਾਰ (ਮਤਲਬ: ਇੱਕ ਰੱਬ) ਦੁਆਰਾ ਦਰਸਾਇਆ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ।

 
 
Sikhism, was founded by Guru Nanak, who was born in 1469. Guru Nanak spread a simple message of "Ek Onkaar": we are all one, created by the One Creator of all Creation. He expressed the reality that there is one God and many paths, and the Name of God is Truth, "Sat Naam".

 

Guru Nanak taught his way of life:
Nam Japna - To get up each day before sunrise, to clean the body, meditate on God's Name and recite the Guru's hymns to clean the mind. Throughout the day, continuously remember God's Name with every breath.
Dharam di Kirat Karni - To work and earn by the sweat of the brow, to live a family way of life, and practice truthfulness and honesty in all dealings.
Vand Ke Chakna - To share the fruits of one’s labor with others before considering oneself. Thus, to live as an inspiration and a support to the entire community.

 

Sikhs live by three major principles:

  • Remember God while carrying out daily duties.

  • Remember God while employed in honest work.

  • Sharing what they earn with others in need. Charitable work is considering the same as giving service to God, if carried out while meditating and keeping God in mind.

 

The foundation of Sikhism was laid down by Guru Nanak. Subsequently, he was followed by nine disciples who in their own way contributed to the Sikh Faith. Ultimately, all their teachings were compiled into the sikh scripture, The Guru Granth Sahib.

Sikhs believe in one God, and that different faiths are a reflection of the belief in the same God.

 Dasvandh or Dasaundh, literally means a "tenth part" and refers to the practice among Sikhs of contributing in the name of the Guru one-tenth of their earnings towards the common resources of the community. This is also referred to in Punjabi as "Daan" literally "giving" or "contributing" in charity. This is a Sikh's religious obligation — a religious requirement or duty; a form of seva or humble service which is highly valued in the Sikh system. The concept of dasvandh was implicit in Guru Nanak’s own Gurbani in the line: "ਘਾਲਿ ਖਾਇ ਕਿਛੁ ਹਥਹੁ ਦੇਇ ॥ ਨਾਨਕ ਰਾਹੁ ਪਛਾਣਹਿ ਸੇਇ ॥੧॥ One who works for what he eats, and gives some of what he has - O Nanak, he knows the Path (1)" (SGGS p 1245) The idea of sharing and giving is symbolised by the institutions of langar (community kitchen) for the sangat (holy assembly) that the Guru has established.

A Hukamnama refers to a hymn from the Guru Granth Sahib which is given as an order to Sikhs or a historical order given by one of the Guru's of Sikhism.
The Hukamnama also refers to a hymn randomly selected from the Guru Granth Sahib on a daily basis. This is seen as the order of God for that particular day.
