Hebrew Voices #70 – Sikh-ing God in Jerusalem

Sathari Singh at the Western WallIn this brand-new episode of Hebrew Voices, Sikh-ing God in Jerusalem, I talk with Sathari Singh, a Catholic-born convert to the Sikh faith whose lifelong dream was to come on a pilgrimage to the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. Sathari explains what he learned studying from a Hassidic rabbi, how he fought religious persecution in New York City, and what it was like as a turban-wearing Manhattan subway train driver on 9/11.

I look forward to reading your comments!

  1. The movie Amu on Netflix is a very moving story about how the Sihk’s were singled out and killed in India. Thank you for sharing this gentleman’s story.

  2. Having spent a considerable amount of time in the New Age movement, I recognized many of the same generic terms that the Sikhs use particularly on transcendental Entergy, channelling and to yoga spirituality. The fact that he honestly sits he is/was a hippie explained a lot. Very interesting. Thanks Nehemia

  3. Very nice and insightful interview, I´ve never really got in touch with the Sikh religion.
    And I agree with Sathari Singh concerning his statement that all religions/ beliefs in deed actually want to worship the One True God, Yehovah Elohim. However, they do it “their” way and therefore eventually end up worshiping wrong idols.

    There is even proof in the Tanakh for this exact context. In 2 Kings 17:41 we read: “Even while these people were worshipping the LORD, they were serving their idols. To this day their children and grandchildren continue to do as their fathers did “.

  4. Thanks Nehemia, Yoga is a huge red flag for me. Yoke to some being out there.
    The posture they use can cause asphyxiation, I personally think that is not a healthy way to approach our Father. Just me ?

  5. Very interesting. Seems like a very tolerant guys. But please pay attention to the mixing of the seed in sikh-belief. It is Obvious That We Do Not All Believe In The Same God… There are not a number of ways from which you can choose to reach God, there is only 1 way and 1 truth…
    Out of Interest into Other people’s Lives This Is A Very Good hebrew Voices, I see the beauty of it, but the thaughts That are being brought, Can be confusing.

  6. Thank you Nehemiah for Hebrew Voices. You enable me to hear stories of faith from people I would never look out on my own 😀

    Thank you so much

  7. Oh my! Very interesting listening to this seeking soul. May he come to see and believe soon the depth and incomprehensible love of Yehovah that caused Him to take on human flesh so that He could finish the perfect work of redemption for His people who believe in His Words. Sometimes I am overcome by what Yehovah has done for His people whom He loves so much and yet the eyes of our hearts are prevented from seeing it. Dear Lord Yehovah! Please pour out the complete and full knowledge of Yourself upon our hearts and open our eyes that we might clearly see the awesome thing you have done for us through the Messiah Yehoshua, that Your Name, Yehovah, our Father, might be hallowed and glorified, your Kingdom come within our hearts, and Your Will done in us as it is done in Heaven. In Your blessed Name, we pray with thankful and grateful hearts, Amen.

    • Shabbat Shalom Aunt Ganny!
      Your thoughts and prayer touched my heart and struck a chord! I want to add my voice to your prayer, in agreement, knowing that Jehovah our Father in heaven will grant us our petition.
      Thank you for sharing your heart so beautifully.
      Blessings to you and yours, Leilani

      • Thank you, Leilani. Yehovah loves to answer the cries of our heart when it is according to His Will, and His heart is also with us in prayer when two or more are agreed. Thanks so much for your encouragement!

  8. Enjoy your honest humble way of talking to others. Interesting lesson on India-Pakistan relations. Thank you.
