The talk will explain, with audiovisual examples, the use of 360° projection, 4DX technologies that work on all the senses, multi-channel spatial sound and holographic imaging to explain the contemporary relevance of the core values ensconced in Gurbani. The values showcased will be relevant to contemporary life and easily relatable to the youth of today, irrespective of their faith. What we ultimately want to achieve is to impress on young Sikhs and non-Sikhs as well as the international community, that Sikhism is a modern faith and it promotes values that apply today and apply to all of humanity. The values highlighted will be Secularity, Caste and Gender equality, the use of strength only for the protection of others, irrespective of their faith, caring and sharing and deep respect for nature and the environment.
