Q: How do Sikhs greet each other? What does Sat Shri Akal means?
A: Sikhs greet each other by saying “Sat Shri Akal”. Sat Shri Akal means “God is the supreme truth”. Sikhs remember God every time they meet or greet each other by saying Sat Shri Akal.
Sikhs also greet each other by saying “Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh”. This greeting means ‘Khalsa belongs to God and victory belongs to God’.
Every service performed in Sikhism is focused on remembering God and being in contact with Him. Greeting is a part of it.
