Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) has released its seventh report in the State of the Panth series titled Miri-Piri, exploring Miri-Piri doctrine as it is found in primary and secondary sources, and how Miri-Piri influences the political and spiritual behavior of Sikhs worldwide. The report traces and analyzes Miri-Piri doctrine from its beginnings with Guru Nanak Sahib through its development, institutionalization, and application through time and context over 534 years. How have Sikhs historically applied Miri-Piri doctrine to their individual contexts through time? What are the present-day tensions in application of Miri-Piri doctrine under competing citizenships across India and the diaspora? Can Sikh politicians serve the State and the Panth? What role should institutions play in building a foundational understanding of the Miri-Piri doctrine?

Join us in conversation with Harinder Singh and Jasleen Kaur as we try to understand Miri-Piri from a Gurmat (Guru’s Way) perspective, as inferred from Bani (wisdom), Tavarikh (history), and Rahit (lifestyle).

3Gs: Guru, Gurgaddi, Granth

The world knows a Guru to be an influential teacher, spiritual master, or popular expert. The Sikh world refers to ten founder personalities as well as the Guru Granth and the Khalsa Panth as the Guru. Guru Nanak Sahib considered “Sabad” to be the Guru. This conversation will dive deep into the Sikh context of what Guru is, “Gurgaddi” as the enthronement to the status of the Guru in Sikh tradition, and how the eternal co-Guruship came about by the Command of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib to Granth-Panth. Within a month of this conversation are the first Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib and its Gurgaddi, Gurgaddi Purabs of Guru Nanaks II, IV, V & VIII.
