(Literally the word Sikh means a student or learner) A Sikh is a member of a religious order founded by Guru Nanak in the 15th century. He is a believer in one 'God' and a keeper of His 'IMAGE'. To say that SIKHISM is a branch of Hinduism is as much correct or incorrect as to say that Christianity is a branch of Judaism.



Any human being who faithfully believes in
  • One Immortal Being,
  • Ten Gurus, from Guru Nanak Dev to Guru Gobind Singh
  • The Guru Granth Sahib,
  • The utterances and teachings of the ten Gurus and
  • the baptism (Khande di Pahul) bequeathed by the tenth Guru,
  • and who does not owe allegiance to any other religion, is a Sikh.​

Guru da hukam mannan vaala hi sikha hai according to GranthGahib ji (par shayad main nahi haan, coz asi kinna ku mannde haan).......Japji sahib diya lines hann, Humake andhar sab ko, bahr hukam na koi, nanak hukme je bujhe ta haume kahe na koi".........Sikhi ta matlab apne aap nu guru de hwale kar dena hai, ta hi ta kehnde hann sikh means a disciple........

Sikh- is someone who knows there's nothing beyond the truth, and understands not to disrespect another religion and yet follow Guru Granth Sahib. A Sikh stands out for what the truth is and is not afraid of his/her identity! He/she treats all human beings equally hence, caste differences mean nothing to him/her. Waheguru is forever in his mind, body and soul ...and someone who is passionate about keeping his/her religion's tourch lit and guiding it in the right direction and protects it from the wrong hands!
very well put :so :so

Raaj main raaj
jog main jogi
tap main tapeesar
gristh main bhogi........
Following the teaching of the ten gurus........... and Guru granth sahib and keeps up to all his reponsibilities to what he is .... is a true sikh......... So eligibility criteria for being a sikh is being a good human being.

Bas rab de bhaane ch razi rahan wala.

mere khyal ch ih cheezan je koi man lave he is a sikh

there is a difference between a Sikh and a Khalsa,every khalsa is a Sikh but every Sikh is not a khalsa unless he/she receives baptism.
Although Guru Gobind Singh offered the highest honor to Khalsa, he did not expect every Sikh to become khalsa. One of his most favorite poets Bhai Nand Lal and more than half of his other poets, for example, did not become khalsa.

Sorry to say yaar... But Bhai Nand lal and all as u said were poets and Guru darbaar were from all religions...

and plz, if u dnt know any history, then dont atleast give false things.. Sorry about this, but instead of creating copnfusion on others mind, its better to know and then comment..!!!

The word "SIKH" means "disciple" . those poets were sikhs/disciples of Guru Gobind Singh ji.
anyway, we do agree that a "sehajdari" is as much a sikh as an "Amritdari"
haina ??

the one who believes in Ten Gurus and Guru Granth Sahib and follows their teachings. The person might not be following full reht maryada like Baptism, nitnem......

I know dis much....I am not so good and confident and giving exact definition. I feel dis is wat ppl mean by sehajdhari sikh...

rest SAD(Mann) nd SAD(A) has made more forms of sikhs also...even like the one who eats meat but halal meat.....can also call himself a sikh nd people do call.....so mit be they are also sehajdhari...or its just gud idea to get more voters for their candidates during SGPC elections..
