Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Ramdasia Sikhs

(This story illustrates possible attitudes of this people.)
The Ramdasia Sikh man looked troubled as he began to talk to his guru. “I have this Christian friend who believes that Jesus has forgiven his sins, and when he dies he will go to heaven to be with God. I read a Bible verse he gave me in which Jesus said, ‘I’m the way and the truth and the life.’ I’ve always tried to be a faithful Sikh, and I know that according to our scriptures that God created 8,400,000 forms of life, and that we won’t gain spiritual wisdom if we do not obey our gurus. Our scriptures say that the way to be cleansed from sin is to go through many rebirths. I wonder if Jesus may be the true way to God.” The Guru responded, “Jesus was a good man, but he is not God. All people will be reincarnated until they become Sikhs; then they have a chance to reach God. We are the right way.”
About 80 percent of the 505,000 Ramdasia Sikhs reside in Punjab. Others are found in various parts of India including Jammu and Kashmir. Once known primarily as basket weavers, today they have advanced in areas of agriculture, business, and education.
