The Guru Granth Sahib Project

The Guru Granth Sahib Project aims to make the Guru Granth Sahib accessible to English speakers globally via technology. Although there are translations available in Panjabi text belonging to the early twentieth century by many celebrated Sikh giants, and some in English from recent times, there is a need for a fresh perspective for contemporary audiences. Join us in conversation with the project’s global lead researchers: Harinder Singh, Ishmeet Kaur, Jasleen Kaur, and Jaswant Singh as we delve into how this idea came to fruition, the transcreation process, the challenges, and how these translations will differ from other current translations. To learn more and start exploring, head to our website: https://app.gurugranthsahib.io/

State of the Panth Report: Sikhi & Sexuality

Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) has released its sixth report in the State of the Panth series titled Sikhi & Sexuality, exploring how Sikhi has influenced the collective behavior of the Sikhs when it comes to sex, pleasure, and procreation. Sexuality is not something that is frequently discussed in the Panth (Sikh Collective). The report clearly outlines Sikh perspectives on major topics like lust, marriage, homosexuality, and polygamy. What does Bani say about sexuality? How do we differentiate between sex and sexuality? How have colonialism, nationalism, and other historical processes influenced the Sikh understanding of sexuality? What role, if any, should institutions play in supporting Sikhs of all gender identities and sexual orientations? Join us in conversation with Harinder Singh and Jasleen Kaur as we try to understand sexuality in the context of a Sikh worldview, from a Gurmat (Guru’s Way) perspective, as inferred from Bani (wisdom), Tavarikh (history), and Rahit (lifestyle).

The Sikhs & The Panjab

73 years ago, two nation-states were carved by the British mapmaking: Hindustan and Pakistan. The historical Sikh Homeland in The Panjab was divided by the Radcliffe line. In now truncated Indian Panjab, a proportion of the Sikhs led many campaigns to fight for economic, political, state, human, and religious rights. What’s next to secure the Sikh aspirations and the Panjab’s autonomy?

Love in Sikhi – SikhRI

Cozby Library and Community Commons

Join us this afternoon as we look at love and relationships through a Sikh lens. Pritpal Singh, Mentor, Educator, Physician, explores what it really means to be in love and how it reflects in our relationships from Gurbani's perspective. "When it comes to love, it's only with one. There's no room for another, there's no duality of thought." We reference historical figures who played the game of love, looking at their actions and lifestyle, and we reflect on how we can implement the same discipline into our own lives. Love is the fundamental force of life. It forms the basis of all life pursuits and our motives. This event is for teenagers and adults. For parents with kids ages 6-12 wanting to attend, kids activities with supervision will be available.
