Khalsa Ji...i checked your forum regarding the pictures of the Gurus...i don't pray or worship the pictures...i have a picture of all the ten Gurus along with SRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB by my bedside...a picture of the Khanda on my study table...a picture of all the ten Gurus in my wallet...and a picture of Guru Gobind Singh Ji right beside the door of my room...Guru Gobind Singh's picture is really awesome...this might sound funny/weird but it actually changes me crazy or whatever...i don't know how it happens...i talk to the picture smiles at me...and sometimes it doesn't smile...this way i know if He is pleased or not...and the best part is that most of the time it is this picture that pulled me into Sikhism when i saw it at my uncle's place around three and a half years ago...have a look for yourself

this picture is simply it still wrong to keep it?...i mean i don't worship it...i do talk to it and look at it and derive strangth and feel His grace on me main purpose for putting up all pictures is just to be always in Guru-consciousness...the way i look at it is this : since Sikhs are not Hindus,they are not supposed to worship these pictures...but since we are not Muslims either,we can put up pictures for inspiration and to remain Guru-conscious...thank you! :) :) :) :) :)

Awesome Wahe Guru! Pictures inspire me too! Thanx for sharing. SKKK
