Once you enter you remove your footwear, then you must say 'sat-sri-akal' or 'Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, vaheguru ji ke fateh' (more respetful greeting.) Make sure you don't say 'sas-ri-kal' as it is saying 'may your sister-in-law die.' Then you can enter the house. Remember however you speak when you are spoken to when talking to elders, as this is a mark of respect.

ANS#2: Dont say "SAS-RI-KAL" as it means "may YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW die"
