hi,

quite a bit actually. despite me being only 22 years of age. im a history major and a philosophy minor. within that i do some religious studies work as well and just a have a facisination with theology as a whole. anyways, i did some world religions studies and actually went to a sikh temple and spoke with the religious leader and watched a service. i also had a professor that was a sikh as well. (this was merely to expand my knowledge i wasnt seeking to convert to it. ive also gone and spoke with religious leaders and watched services of the zoroastrians, janists, buddhists, mormons, hindus, shiite muslims, jehovahs witnesses, and a plethora of christian groups as well. i myself am an eastern orthodox christian convert, i was lutheran).


as far as what i think of it, i find it to be a respectful religion. all encompassing, believing that many paths lead men to God. religious preferences are not a barrier. so in that way they are similar to unitarianism i suppose. however the actual religious services are very ritualistic so that implies there is a lot of structure within it as well.

i think the sikhs have endured alot of persecution in india from muslim groups there, which i think is a very very sad thing. being that they are a non-violence practicing group, with a long long theological history and very indepth philosophy of the cosmos.


Kind Regards,
