Photos, Pictures, Sceneries or Statues of the Guru Personalities are not accepted within Sikhism and Sikhism fully rejects these:
Guru Ji Himself declares and affirms upon the issue through Gurbani as:
- "Meditate on the image of the Guru within your mind; let your mind accept the Word of the Guru's Shabad (Gurbani teachings) and His Mantra (advice & guidance). Enshrine the Guru's feet within your heart. Bow in humility forever before the Guru, the Supreme Lord God" (Tr. fr. SGGS page 864)
- "Enshrine the Guru's Feet in your heart. Meditate on Him and cross over the ocean of fire" (Tr. fr. SGGS Page 192)
And hence Sikhism apparently justifies that Sikhism won't allow making or worshiping in any sort of Photos, Pictures. Statues, Sceneries of GURU personalities. All the ten GURU personalities never allowed any artist or engraver of the time, to carve their paintings. The camera system of Photography had not been invented & devolved till that period of history, as on today. All sorts of Guru's paintings, pictures or poses images found any where in the world are imaginary & mind made issue of the ignorant artists. This all has been done under Brahmnini and all above Hinduism faith but fundamentally it is that this all is contrary to the Sikh way of life or Sikh faith.
We have seen many Photographs/potraits showing guru's Their history. like today i have seen a picture of Mata Gujri & Sahibzada Zorawar Singh & Sahibzada Fateh Singh. I know that is poet's imagination . I was Making Photograph Of Guru Har Rai And Bhai Kuram Singh related to Gurudwara Amb Sahib through my imagination(I know i am not that much pure to imagine) at that time a thing strikes in my mind that am i doing rite thing? Well, saying about photographs these also acts as idol, i thought. Neither gurus nor their followers at that time made their pictures. They wrote bani and teach the bani. Making photos and started pray before it makes you addict to that photograph. I mean you got attach to it and attachment is one of our five evils.
Same thing strikes in my mind when My sister freind's give her statue of Guru Nanak Dev jee(Chinese made) as gurus rejected this concepts and blady people are making their statues. So it comes in my mind Na aapan Nind sakiyey, Na apnaoon nu dil kardaa
One more concept arise, In many Gurdwaras the idols of gurus which they left like Chola Saab, any ornamental etc also worshipped they show them like these are god well again i think idol worship concept begins. SGPC recently announced to remove all photos from SGPC linked gurdwaras and all other gurdwaras. But after this announce ment there are many gurdwaras which have guru's pictures hanging on the wall and people use to bow before them.
Kou Butan Ko pujat hai Tavparsad Savaiya(patshahi 10)
Tirath naaveh archaa poojaa agar vaas behkaar Guru Nanak Dev
Bhoganhaaray bhogi-aa is moorat kay mukh chhaar Kabir
Aap hee poojaaree aap hee dayvaa Guru Nanak Dev
Tora-o na paatee pooja-o na dayvaa Kabir
Guru has no form he is formless so remove all pictures
Remove these pictures and place gurbani instead of it, Before you eyes. When you wake up in morning your eyes will face gurbani first you will get confidence and start the day before bowing to that gurbani instead of photos.
