IT IS THE HOLY BOOK OF SIKHISM THAT
CONTAINS THE TEACHINGS OF THE PREVIOUS 10
GURUS (THE TEACHINGS SUMMARIZE HOW TO
FIND GOD WITHIN YOURSELF).
IT IS AN EQUIVALENT TO THE IMPORTANCE OF
THE BIBLE, THE TORAH, OR THE KORAN.
• SIKHS WHO HAVE MADE A PUBLIC COMMITMENT TO
FAITH BY GOING THROUGH A SPECIAL BAPTISM ARE
CALLED MEMBERS OF THE KHALSA, OR THE
COMMUNITY OF BAPTIZED SIKHS.
• THE 5 “K”S REPRESENT THE ITEMS GIVEN TO THE
FIRST SIKHS BY GURU GOBIND SINGH.
THE FIVE “K”S
The five Ks create a unique appearance and identity for the Sikh.
One could easily identify a fellow Sikh on the field of battle.
