Sikhism

"Sikhism is essentially a Religion of the Way, i.e., something that must be lived and experienced rather than something which may be intellectually grasped and comprehended. True, there can be no practice without the doctrine. Sikhism, therefore, has its doctrines, its views of reality, its view of the nature of man, and their interrelationship, but it lays primary stress on the practice, the discipline, “the way which leads to the cessation of suffering”, as Gautam, the Buddha, had formulated it." - Sirdar Kapur Singh
