Summary of Question:Forced To Cut Hair By Non Sikh Parents
Date Posted:Tuesday, 8/25/2009 2:46 AM MDT

I Was Born In a Non Sikh or Indian Familly, I am Forced To cut my hair and always

Makes Fun of me For Choosing Sikhism as a religion. Could I still be considered a sikh, I learn Gurbani, I fully Belive in Our gurus words,I do not consume Drugs and I am not nasty to other Things, I have Never spoken To another sikh in my live and there are no gurdawas Within 1000km.Could I still Be considered a Sikh.

Thank you
Waheguru ji ka khalsa
Waheguru ji ke fathe


You are a Sikh if you think you are.
If you feel it in your heart that it is your path then it is. It is very simple. It does not matter if there is no Gurdwara around even 1000 miles, if there is Gurdwara in your heart then that is all that matters.
Listening to Kirtan and reading Gurbani is the best way to keep in touch and maintaining that feeling in your heart. If your parents are giving you a hard time you will have to decide what is the best way of living in this situation. Sometimes you may decide to keep your hair short until you are living on your own just to keep peace in the family or stand up to everyone around and declare your self as a Sikh. Ultimately it is your life and it is up to you to decide and figure out where your strength lies. If you are strong within your self about your connection to the Guru then it may not matter for now how long your hair is, but a day may come when you will feel free to live your life the way you want.
