About the Society
We aim to bring the Sikh community together across the whole university, as well as to teach people about Sikhi.
Throughout the year we hold events from political/educational, religious and social events to accomodate to all. Our society is dedicated to current members of our society as well as our alumni.
Our University’s Sikh Society encompass a wide variety of subjects, colleges, study levels, and nationalities. This formed a dynamic and tight-knit group of Sikh students and fellows.
Membership is free, just visit the DSU website here to sign up.
Insight on Sikh Beliefs and Values
Sikhi, is the 5th largest major religion in the world. It was founded in Punjab, by Guru Nanak Dev Ji, in 1469.
Sikhs follow the teachings of the ten living Gurus, ending with Guru Gobind Singh Ji, who declared the 11th and final Guru to be the holy scripture, Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
Sikhs can be easily recognised from features such as the 5 Ks, including Kesh, uncut hair, usually covered by a turban/dastaar, a Kara, an iron bracelet, and a dagger, called a Kirpan, which is only to be used for defence.
Sikhs believe that everyone is equal, regardless of gender, sexuality, caste, religion, etc. We therefore believe all religions are valid, and different paths to the same creator.
Sikhi was formed at a time of religious persecution, so it is a core principle of Sikhi to stand up for those who are unable to defend themselves, and therefore Sikhs should have the qualities of a Sant-Sipahi (saint-soldier).
Guru Nanak Dev Ji taught that the three fundamental pillars of Sikhi are:
- Naam japna (recite prayers)
- Kirat karna (do good deeds)
- Vand chakna (share with others)
