SikhRI Celebrates the Life and Legacy of Guru Teghbahadar Sahib

Bridgewater, NJ [March 22, 2021] The Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) is delighted to invite you to an online conference commemorating the 400th Prakash Purab (Illumination Day) of Guru Teghbahadur Sahib on 27 March 2021 at 11 am EDT.

The Guru revealed the following in the Guru Granth Sahib (1427): “ Nanak: O mind! Listen, call that one alone wise who does not give threats to anyone, nor accepts threats from others.” And the Guru lived this infinite-wisdom.

“In the mid-1700s, the Age of Enlightenment in Europe was philosophizing about defending the right to dissent. The Guru in the Subcontinent of India was championing the right to live the way anyone wants to live. The Ninth Sovereign protected the right with his head, both via mindfulness and martyrdom. This remains unique in the annals of world history for the Guru created Millat-e-Nau, the new nation, built on the political-spiritual consciousness of 1Force-1Ness paradigm,” remarked Harinder Singh, SikhRI’s co-founder.

The conference is titled Guru Teghbahadar Sahib: The Benevolent Warrior. “It will present the multiple dimensions of the Guru and the impact of the Guru’s legacy on humanity. The speakers are subject-matter experts varying from scholars to researchers to poets, who will speak on the Guru’s life, contributions including politics through primary and secondary sources," said Kulvir Singh, SikhRI’s Executive Director.

SikhRI strives to present Sikh thought and principles in a welcoming environment, in an unbiased, honest way using contemporary language. In subtle ways, it seeks to create “disruption,” enabling individuals to begin thinking outside the rigid parameters of prevailing thought based on either the Indic or the Judeo-Christian influences. For personal growth, “Guru Teghbahadar Sahib’s compositions primarily focus on strengthening individuals, thereby enabling them to experience their fullest human potential while living in this world. This is transcendence, liberation, and the ultimate freedom,” added Inni Kaur, SikhRI’s Creative Director.

Registration is free and open to everyone: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_o5_XWKhIRQyZnel80z5e_g
