Check out the Punjabi page for an introduction to the de facto Sikh language and some basic phrases. I have made it in 2 parts – a list of simple words and phrases written in English so they are easy to learn and also a more in depth guide to learning proper pronounciation.

The Family page describes the Sikh family structure including the different names for different relations. A simplified diagram can be viewed here.

To learn more about Sikhism, head over to the Religion page, or check out some of the links on the right hand side.

If you have any feedback (positive or negative!) please leave a comment below.

    can I ask who did your Sikh wedding ceremony? As I will be marrying a Christian and I am a Sikh but would like the Sikh ceremony but I know the temples are not having interfaith marriages.

  3. I have a question, was the girls parents open to the idea of having their daughter marrying a non sikh man?

    • Vince says:

      I wouldn’t say they were open – it took a long time for them to come around to the idea of their daughter marrying a non-Sikh! But when they did come around, they were very accepting.

    Thank you so much for taking your time to make this site! I have been dating a punjabi boy for sometime now, and the culture differences, language and religion are so difficult for me to understand at times. I want to be able to completely understand him, but it is hard, and it seems that you know the feeling very well. So thank you!
