Map of the spread of Sikhism

SIkhism has several sects the five main ones are the Orthodox, Nirankaris (considered Vaishya class), Nam-Dharis (disagree with the suceeding line of gurus), Akhand Kirtani Jatha (strict adherence to Kesi and Kirtan), and the Sikh Dharma of the Western Hemisphere (started in America women wear turbans too)

The Symbol of Sikhism is called a Khanda. It consists of three weapons and a circle: the khanda, two kirpans and the chakkar which is a circle. It is the military emblem of the Sikhs. It is also part of the design of the Nishan Sahib. A double edged khanda (sword) is placed at the top of a Nishan Sahib flag as an ornament or finial.

Major beliefs of Sikhs are that God is one formless, genderless imanent being. Yet God has three names Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva this borrows from Hindu beliefs.
Mankind is self centered this is called haumai. Until we can become God-centered we will live in the cycle of samsara (sanskrit term used in Hinduism for rebirth)
The sacred text of Sikhism is the Guru Granth Sahib it consists of the texts of the Ten Gurus including Guru Nanak
This is a Gurdwara (gateway of the guru) the sacred place of worship. People meet here in the evening for service there is not an official day of the week to meet. The service ends in a langar (shared meal)

Sri Harmandir Sahib, also known as Sri Darbar Sahib or Golden Temple, , is named after Hari(God) the temple of God. It is the Holy Place of sikhism
