Sdn Jessi Kaur will speak on The Birth of the Khalsa
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.
As always, we look for active participation by the Sangat in an environment that encourages interactive discussion.
