What are some typical neophyte mistakes? The errors that people, youth etc make when trying to learn about Sikhi? Here are a few: 1. Looking for a sense of community/belonging instead of looking for truth/God. 2. Too much emphasis on history rather than spiritual practice (historical interest is fine, but don't neglect Naam Simran etc). 3. Too much involvement in politics or social problems, rather then spiritual interests. 4. Thinking too much about groups are doing, not enough about their individual journey. 5. Being waylaid by controversies and arguments, rather then concentrating on spiritual progress. 6. Thinking in terms of concepts instead of practising virtues. 7. picking and choosing from religious texts, and rejecting things that they think do not make sense. this is narrow mindedness. 8. worrying about 'threats to sikhi' (as if there were any), rather than practicising sikhi.
