Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) has released its sixth report in the State of the Panth series titled Sikhi & Sexuality, exploring how Sikhi has influenced the collective behavior of the Sikhs when it comes to sex, pleasure, and procreation. Sexuality is not something that is frequently discussed in the Panth (Sikh Collective). The report clearly outlines Sikh perspectives on major topics like lust, marriage, homosexuality, and polygamy. What does Bani say about sexuality? How do we differentiate between sex and sexuality? How have colonialism, nationalism, and other historical processes influenced the Sikh understanding of sexuality? What role, if any, should institutions play in supporting Sikhs of all gender identities and sexual orientations? Join us in conversation with Harinder Singh and Jasleen Kaur as we try to understand sexuality in the context of a Sikh worldview, from a Gurmat (Guru’s Way) perspective, as inferred from Bani (wisdom), Tavarikh (history), and Rahit (lifestyle).

3Gs: Guru, Gurgaddi, Granth

The world knows a Guru to be an influential teacher, spiritual master, or popular expert. The Sikh world refers to ten founder personalities as well as the Guru Granth and the Khalsa Panth as the Guru. Guru Nanak Sahib considered “Sabad” to be the Guru. This conversation will dive deep into the Sikh context of what Guru is, “Gurgaddi” as the enthronement to the status of the Guru in Sikh tradition, and how the eternal co-Guruship came about by the Command of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib to Granth-Panth. Within a month of this conversation are the first Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib and its Gurgaddi, Gurgaddi Purabs of Guru Nanaks II, IV, V & VIII.
