For many people, at some point in their spiritual development, they realize that they are already living their lives according to certain principles. They are at that stage of their personal and spiritual growth where they have made significant changes in their lifestyle and commitment to Self. Sikh vows and taking Amrit are a way to seal one’s inner commitment to oneself with the power of one’s word.
Sikh Vows are simple statements of commitment, understanding, and self-discipline. With Sikh Vows, we surrender to the Shabd Guru as our Guide to spiritual awakening.
Sikh Vows provide a foundation of living a certain lifestyle to further develop and enhance your spiritual practice. The vows include not cutting your hair; refraining from meat, alcohol and other stimulants; remaining celibate until married and maintaining a monogamous relationship with your spouse; and committing to meditation and prayer each day.
If you would like to find a Sikh Dharma International minister in your area to learn more about Sikh Vows, kindly contact Sarb Nam Kaur at the ministry office: firstname.lastname@example.org
