The Great Sri Guru Granth Sahib JI 

“You keep your fasts to please Allah, while you murder other beings for pleasure. You look after your own interests, and so not see the interests of others. What good is your word? O Qazi, the One Lord is within you, but you do not think or contemplation on Him. You do not care for others, you are mad about religion, this is why your life is wasting away”
Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji (via sikhquotes)

Girl Rising…to consider on International Women’s Day (and every day thereafter)

“One who is not touched by pleasure or pain, greed, emotional attachment and egotistical pride, Nanak says is the very image of God.
One who is beyond praise or slander, who looks upon iron and gold alike, Nanak says that such a person is liberated.
One who is not affected by pleasure or pain, who looks upon friend and enemy alike, Nanak says that such a person is liberated.
One who does not frighten anyone and who is not afraid of anyone else, Nanak says: call them spiritually wise.
One who has forsaken all sin and corruption, who wears the robes of neutral detachment, Nanak says: good destiny is written on their forehead.
One who renounces maya and possessiveness and is detached from everything, Nanak says: God abides in their heart.
That mortal who renounces possessiveness, greed, emotional attachment and egotism, Nanak says: they themselves are saved and do save many others as well.”
Salok Mahalla Nauvan 9, Guru Granth Sahib Ji (via withthepowerofpeace)

Sikh kids are twice as likely to be bullied

Children who wear traditional religious garb are twice as likely to be bullied than their less conspicuous peers, a new report shows. 
Over 50% of Sikh children endure school bullying, according to a study from the Sikh Coalition of more than 700 Sikh students in Massachusetts, Indiana, Washington and California. It’s even worse for Sikhs who wear a turban, a staggering 67% of whom report being bullied. 
That’s a significant jump from the estimated rates of bullying in the U.S. The National Center for Education Statistics states that around 32% of all teenage students report being bullied in school, while the 2011 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has an even lower estimation of around 20%.
