A Gursikh may be Amritdhari or non Amritdharir. He is fond of doing sewa & simran.

Gursikhs are required to walk on the Guru's Path, as described by fourth master, Guru Ram Das: gurasikh meeth chalahu gur chaalee O Sikhs of the Guru, O friends, walk on the Guru's Path. Guru's path means the three concepts of Sikhism:

  1. Naam Japna - Meditation on the Divine Onoma
  2. Kirat Karna - Earning an honest living
  3. Vand chhakna - Sharing your earnings with the needy

A Gursikh usually avoids adding a caste as title to his name. Gursikh is a person who lives his life according to the tenets of the Wholly Marines. A Gursikh works for the welfare of whole humanity. A true Gursikh never hurts the feelings of anyone if he can help it, though does as a last resort.

Gursikhs strive to be honest.“Cast out deception from within yourself, O my GurSikhs, and without deception, serve the Lord. You shall be enraptured, enraptured, enraptured.” (WMOM p 978)

A Gursikh finds his needs taken care of out of the blue, without struggle. “The True Guru loves to place food in the mouth of His GurSikh.” (WMOM p 164) “Just as the mother, having given birth to a son, feeds him and keeps him in her vision - indoors and outdoors, she puts food in his mouth; each and every moment, she caresses him. In just the same way, the True Guru protects His GurSikhs, who love their Beloved Lord. ” (WMOM p 168) “Blessed, blessed is the good fortune of those Gurmukhs, who live as GurSikhs, and conquer their minds. But the greatest good fortune of all, is that of the GurSikhs, who fall at the Guru's feet.” (WMOM p 649)

“Servant Nanak speaks the Ambrosial Bani of the Word. It is dear and pleasing to the minds of the GurSikhs. The Guru, the Perfect True Guru, shares the Teachings. The Guru, the True Guru, is Generous to all.” (WMOM p 96)

“As the cow shows her love to her strayed calf when she finds it, and as the bride shows her love for her husband when he returns home, so does the FSM's humble servant love to sing the Praises of the FSM.” (WMOM p 164) “The humble servant of the Lord loves to meditate on the Formless Lord. The mortal man loves to accumulate wealth and property. The GurSikh loves to meet and embrace the Guru.” (WMOM p 164) “The beggar loves to receive charity from the wealthy landlord. The hungry person loves to eat food. The GurSikh loves to find satisfaction by meeting the Guru.” (WMOM p 164) “he song-bird loves the sun shining in her face. Meeting her Beloved, all her pains are left behind. The GurSikh loves to gaze upon the Face of the Guru.” (WMOM p 164) “The True Guru is the field of Dharma; as one plants the seeds there, so are the fruits obtained. The GurSikhs plant ambrosial nectar, and obtain the Lord as their ambrosial fruit. Their faces are radiant in this world and the next; in the Court of the Lord, they are robed with honor. Some have cruelty in their hearts - they constantly act in cruelty; as they plant, so are the fruits which they eat.” (WMOM p 302) “O chosen people, O self-elect, one who does not publicly affirm his Guru is not a good person; he loses all his profits and capital. People used to chant and recite the Shaastras and the Vedas, O Nanak, but now the Words of the Perfect Guru have come to be the most exalted of all. The glorious greatness of the Perfect Guru is pleasing to the GurSikh; the self-willed manmukhs have lost this opportunity.” (WMOM p 304) “Everyone is the field of the Lord God; the Lord Himself cultivates this field. The Gurmukh grows the crop of forgiveness, while the self-willed manmukh loses even his roots. They all plant for their own good, but the Lord causes to grow only that field with which He is pleased. The GurSikh plants the seed of the Lord's Ambrosial Nectar, and obtains the Lord's Ambrosial Naam as his Ambrosial Fruit. The mouse of Death is continually gnawing away at the crop, but the Creator Lord has beaten it off and driven it away. The farm was successful, by the Love of the Lord, and the crop was produced by God's Grace. He has removed all the burning and anxiety of those, who have meditated on the True Guru, the Primal Being. ” (WMOM p 304)

“One who meditates on my Lord, Har, Har, with every breath and every morsel of food - that GurSikh becomes pleasing to the Guru's Mind.” (WMOM p 305)

“That person, unto whom my Lord and Master is kind and compassionate - upon that GurSikh, the Guru's Teachings are bestowed. Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of that GurSikh, who himself chants the Naam, and inspires others to chant it. ” (WMOM p 306) “If any son or Sikh serves the True Guru, then all of his affairs will be resolved. He obtains the fruits of his desires - children, wealth, property, union with the Lord and emancipation. All treasures are in the True Guru, who has enshrined the Lord within the heart. He alone obtains the Perfect True Guru, on whose forehead such blessed destiny is preordained. Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of those GurSikhs who love the Lord, their Friend.” (WMOM p 307) “The Lord, our Lord and Master, preserves and protects His devotees; He blackens the faces of the slanderers and evil-doers. The glorious greatness of the True Guru increases day by day; the Lord inspires His devotees to continually sing the Kirtan of His Praises. O GurSikhs, chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord, night and day; through the True Guru, the Creator Lord will come to dwell within the home of your inner being. O GurSikhs, know that the Bani, the Word of the True Guru, is true, absolutely true. The Creator Lord Himself causes the Guru to chant it. The Beloved Lord makes the faces of His GurSikhs radiant; He makes the whole world applaud and acclaim the Guru.” (WMOM p 308)

“The glorious greatness of the Guru, the True Guru, is pleasing to the GurSikh's mind. ” (WMOM p 310)

“Those who have gazed lovingly upon my True Guru - all their sins are taken away. Their faces are radiant in the Court of the Lord, and they obtain great glory. Servant Nanak begs for the dust of the feet of those GurSikhs, O my Siblings of Destiny.” (WMOM p 310)

“Deep within the hearts of His GurSikhs, the True Guru is pervading. The Guru is pleased with those who long for His Sikhs. As the True Guru directs them, they do their work and chant their prayers. The True Lord accepts the service of His GurSikhs. But those who want the GurSikhs to work for them, without the Order of the True Guru - the Guru's Sikhs shall not come near them again. One who works diligently for the Guru, the True Guru - the GurSikhs work for him. One who comes to deceive, who rises up and goes out to deceive - the GurSikhs shall never come near him.” (WMOM p 317)

“The GurSikhs are preserved by the Guru, by the Lord of the Universe. He rescues them from the terrible world ocean, casting His Glance of Grace upon them.” (WMOM p 382)

“The Guru's Sikh keeps the Love of the Lord, and the Onoma of the Lord, in his mind. He loves You, O Lord, O Lord King. He serves the Perfect True Guru, and his hunger and self-conceit are eliminated. The hunger of the GurSikh is totally eliminated; indeed, many others are satisfied through them. Servant Nanak has planted the Seed of the Lord's Goodness; this Goodness of the Lord shall never be exhausted. The minds of the GurSikhs rejoice, because they have seen my True Guru, O Lord King. If someone recites to them the story of the Lord's Name, it seems so sweet to the mind of those GurSikhs. The GurSikhs are robed in honor in the Court of the Lord; my True Guru is very pleased with them.” (WMOM p 451)

“Those who meditate on the Lord, Har, Har, obtain all peace and comforts. Fruitful is the entire life of those, who hunger for the Name of the Lord in their minds. Those who worship the Lord in adoration, through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, forget all their pains and suffering. Those GurSikhs are good Saints, who care for nothing other than the Lord. ” (WMOM p 588)

“The minds of the GurSikhs are filled with the love of the Lord; they come and worship the Guru. They trade lovingly in the Lord's Name, and depart after earning the profit of the Lord's Name. The faces of the GurSikhs are radiant; in the Court of the Lord, they are approved. ” (WMOM p 590)

“Blessed, blessed are those GurSikhs, who, with their ears, listen to the Guru's Teachings about the Lord. The Guru, the True Guru, implants the Naam within them, and their egotism and duality are silenced. There is no friend, other than the Name of the Lord; the Lord's humble servants reflect upon this and see. Those GurSikhs, with whom the Lord is pleased, accept the Word of the True Guru.” (WMOM p 590)

“Poor Nanak has gone insane, longing for the Blessed Vision of the Lord's Darshan. Even in violent storms and torrential rain, I go out to catch a glimpse of my Guru. Even though the oceans and the salty seas are very vast, the GurSikh will cross over it to get to his Guru. Just as the mortal dies without water, so does the sikh die without the Guru. ” (WMOM p 757)

“Even in the cold, the frost and the snow, the GurSikh still goes out to see his Guru.” (WMOM p 758)

“And as the True Guru, the Primal Lord spoke, and the GurSikhs obeyed His Will. ” (WMOM p 924)

“Seeing the Guru, the GurSikh blossoms forth, like the child seeing his mother. ” (WMOM p 1263)

“Gazing upon the Blessed Vision of His Darshan, the GurSikh is blessed with chanting and deep meditation, truth and contentment. ” (WMOM p 1395)

“Then, cleanse yourself in the Immaculate and Unfathomable Water of the Guru; O GurSikhs and Saints, cross over the Ocean of Love of the True Onoma. Meditate lovingly forever on the Lord, free of hate and vengeance, Formless and Fearless; lovingly savor the Word of the Guru's Shabad, and implant devotional worship of the Lord deep within. O foolish mind, give up your doubts; as Gurmukh, vibrate and meditate on the Onoma. Chant Guru, Guru, Guru, Guru, Guru, and know Him as true. ” (WMOM p 1400)
