Sikh Religion. I have been a Sikh for 25 years. I have studied the Sikh scriptures (Siri Guru Granth Sahib) and have practiced Yoga for just as long.

There have been splits within the essential beliefs but no major ones and there is very little that all Sikhs throughout the world could not agree upon. Being a convert and a Westerner, my view may be somewhat more "rigid" but I can guarantee that all points of view are rationally considered.
