Sindhi Samaj has a very rich tradition and history
of being a community with a strong religious faith.
Basically Sindhis are the followers of Hindu life style
of Indus Valley civilization, though a distinct and
diversified religious faiths can be said the
characteristic of Sindhi Samaj but like the India, this
diversity is proving strength instead of weakness. Along
with Punjabi community Sindhis are the most affected
community of partition of India in the year 1947. Many
of Sindhis who didn't migrated to India from Pakistan
have adopted Islam.
Traditionally Sindhis have a very close touch with
Punjabis and Sikhs hence Adi Guru Dhan Sri Guru Nanak
Dev Ji are the prime deity of Sindhis along with Jal
Devata [Water God] "Jhulelal" . It is normal routine of
many Sindhis to go Gurudwara in Sindhis knows as Darbar
being looked by Jagyasi & Udasi [Sadh] families and
recite the Banis from Living God Dhan Sri Guru Granth
Prem Prakash Mandal and Sant Nirankari Mission are two
leading religious streams of Sindhis. The unique feature
of the Prem Prakash Mandal is that till date all the
four prime religious heads of Mandal are born in a
sindhi family. In the Sindhis considerable percentage of
population also fallows principles of Radhaswami Satsang
and worship Shri Anandpur Darbar [Advait Mat - Anandpuri].
There are a lot of Sindhis who worship Mahadev, Shree
Ganesha, Shri Ram, Shrikrishan, Mata Rani sherronwali
and other Hindu Gods and Goddess. For many Sindhis
Shirdi Sai Baba is prime deity. Web master of the site
is native of Kolhapur Maharashtra and Karveer Niwanisi
Amba Devi is the Goddess of Kolhapur City hence a
introductory page of Shri Mahalaxmi is also included
here. There is a tradition devotees going on pilgrimage
of Tirupati Balaji has to take darshan to Mahalaxmi to
complete the pilgrimage.
We had tried our level best to include all the major
religious streams of Sindhi Samaj but it is quite
possible that we might had missed some. If you are with
that view or like to add more information about any
panth feel free to write us.
