Sikh practices are simple, precise and practical guidelines laid out by the Gurus for the practice of the "Sikh way of life". The Gurus emphasise that a Sikh should lead a disciplined life engaged in Naam Simran, meditation on God's name, Kirat Karni, living a honest life of a house-holder, and Wand kay Shako, sharing what one has with the community.

  • Undertake to help the less well off with monetary and/or physical help.
  • Exercise your responsibilities to the community and take active part in the maintenance and safeguard of the community.
