Summary of Question:Handicapped Sikhs
Category:General Q's from Non-Sikhs
Date Posted:Wednesday, 5/02/2007 11:22 AM MDT

As I looked at pictures of Sikhs in gurdwaras, doing meditation, and so on, I couldn't help noticing that everyone sits on the floor. What do people who can't sit on the floor do? Since I have cerebral palsy, sitting on the floor is impossible for me, as is yoga. I'd like to visit a gurdwara some day, and wonder if there would be any point, given my limitations.

Thanks for your help!

Thank you for your very good question. Please explain to the Gurdwara Sevadar (person who serves visitors) about your condition and ask for his or her help. I understand your predicament. I too can no longer sit on the floor (due to a severe injury) and the sevadar usually provides me with a chair and I sit in the back.
