PAHUL -AMRIT REFERENCES
The following points are clear from the above references :
- One CAN NOT be called Sikh (disciple) without the initiation ceremony,"Baptism of the Double-Edged Sword", required to by our Guru (Teacher).
- Only the Panj Piyaray, in the presence of SatGuru Granth Sahib Ji, have the authority to conduct this ceremony, and thus administer Gurdikhya (Amrit-Naam) to the disciples (Sikhs.)
- Only with Gurdikhya does one receive the honour of being called a "Sikh".
