>We can tie it again as many times as we want but that life, we can’t bring it back. That is a great line

Truely heros.

>They put their **heads together** and remembered a video they had seen of a group of men in India removing their turbans to help pull someone to safety Yes, quite literally

I'm not religious, but if I ever take one up it will be Sikhism. Just awesome values and wholesome living.

Plus the food at the gurudwaras is actually pretty tasty. Sure beats the tasteless communion wafer I grew up with lol


dconstruck

Went to a Sikh wedding once at the huge temple on Scott Road in Surrey. Let me tell you, all around great time with everyone super friendly and inviting people and more delicious food than you would believe.


vanDrunkard

Good food and they give it out for free to feed the community. They are just good people.

Charity is one of the “5 Ks” of Sikhism.


SillySingh

The 5 K’s refer to the 5 items that Khalsa Sikhs (baptized) must have on their body at all time. They are; Kangha (comb), Kesh (unshorn hair), Kara (metal bracelet), Kirpan (sword), and Kashera (traditional Sikh military undergarment). Langar, or the act of distributing food for free at a place of worship, is an integral aspect of the faith. All Sikh temples (Gurdwaras) must serve Langar to whoever wants to eat.

Thanks for further educating me. The ideas that have been explained to me all seem really beautiful. I’m not religious, although I appreciate the humanity that is present in the ideals of Sikhism that have been explained to me.


Jolyafuse

Actually charity is one of the three commandments by Sikhism's first guru, the 5Ks are for the Khalsa initiate's.


nipponnuck

Thank you for your correction. I loved hearing it when it was explained to me. I am not religious, although I am highly interested in spirituality and humanism. I loved the Sikh ideas that were explained to me.


Jolyafuse

You're welcome.

Doing a good deed should only be associated to that person and not his race, religion,region, ethnicity,age, height, weight or gender in my opinion.


Swekins

No shit, no idea why people are associating the religion with the deed done here.


Chris266

Probably because their religion is mentioned in the title of the post.


Swekins

But why?


Dontknowme1986

Because the religion has a foundation of being and practicing good humanity.


Swekins

Tell that to the people of Khalistan. Sikh's are not a monolithic people, they are individuals.

Heroes. Well done gentlemen.

Anybody talks shit about turbans - now you know what to show them and their ignorant asses.


SillySingh

If Canadian Sikhs contributing to our society for the past century while wearing turbans hasn’t changed the views of racists, I doubt this will.


beansaregood

You make a fair point, but who knows what idiots think. This is heroic behaviour idc who you are, I think it stands to resonate with just about anyone even some of the lowest hanging fruit.


Ah4Crapsakes

Good stuff.


Billy_Ray_Valentine

What a great story this is


Conference-Dizzy

Get them permanant residency that would be tbe true gift for these gents!


H3ad1nthecl0uds

How do you know that they aren’t citizens?


whipscorpion

Because a ton of young Sikhs in BC are on student visas


Anthro_the_Hutt

Are they not citizens? Genuine question.


43richierich43

I was thinking the same. There should be a reward system for PR lmao


sdhill006

Good point. Don't know why is it being down voted.


Conference-Dizzy
