Sdn. Jessi Kaur will complete the discussions on Japji Sahib by talking about the Khands (or spiritual realms) in pauris 34-38, and the final salok.
“For the last three and years we have delved into the depths of Japji in an attempt to understand the core message of Sikhi. We have now reached its conclusion where Guru Nanak Sahib describes the the realms of spiritual consciousness that each soul passes through before reaching Sachkhand, the final abode. The five khands have been the subject of intellectual discussions and debates by many Sikh scholars and kathakars. The journey through the five realms or spheres is essentially experiential. Each one of us has to traverse through them alone. In the final Vichaar session on Japji, let’s try to gain some insight into the soul’s journey through these spheres.“
As always, we look for active participation by the Sangat in an environment that encourages interactive discussion.
