Dear one, as Sikhs we live a life of grace and consciousness. Our guide and upliftment comes from the reading and singing of the songs of our Guru's. We believe that we are one with the Creator and all creation. We believe to remain distinct.

Sikhism is a way of life rather than a religion. Dating and kissing are not part of our spiritual way of life. We reserve intimacy between a man and a woman for marriage. Our concern is to live in harmony with our soul and consiousness. We have a daily practice to give us the experience of our soul.

When you really care for someone who is a different faith from you, it is best to study their faith and practices. It is important for you to understand that their is no difference between religion and culture for a Sikh.
