Sdn Leena Kaur will speak on “Soi Soi Sadaa Sach Sahib, Sacha, Sachi Nai

Abstract:

Throughout Gurbani Satguru ji tells us about Sacha Sahib, and the Sach that is pervading everywhere. Let us take Gurbani’s support to discuss what is Sacha and why do we call it Sacha? In our day to day life and our entire life, how do we recognize Sacha vs “not-Sacha”. What does Gurbani want us to do with this knowledge as we live our life? How can we use this knowledge to achieve the purpose of life,which is — to merge with Sacha, as mentioned in Gurbani.

Naam Simran

Abstract:

Naam is at the heart of Sikhi – “Nanak ke ghar keval Naam” – (The house of Nanak is filled with just Naam). The purpose of life, according to Gurbani, is union with God through Naam Simran.

Naam is a very broad and deep, mystical concept. We will look at both the meaning and practice of Naam Simran.

Vichaar – The Birth of the Khalsa

Abstract:

When Guru Nanak shared with mankind his revelation of Ek Ong Kar – One Creator One World, he made a radical proclamation for an egalitarian social order based on a new paradigm of equality and dignity for all humanity. It was a call for recognizing the oneness of God inextricably linked with oneness of creation. He envisioned an archetype of a free world: a classless, caste less society with equality, freedom and opportunity for upward social mobility and spiritual evolution for all.  Jessi Kaur will trace the progression of Guru Nanak’s vision to its ultimate fruition in the birth of the Khalsa. It was a journey that took 269 years and required blood and treasure that had never been expended before.
