In the winter of 1999, a loose network of Sikhs known as The Sikh Network (aka Synet for Sikh Youth Network) was in the middle of planning for their annual winter retreat. Being the year of the 300th anniversary of the inauguration of the Khalsa Panth, it was decided that as a history workshop it would be appropriate to develop an interactive, informative and inspiring workshop on the Sarbat Khalsa. As usual, last minute preparations – readings from various books and resources, discussions in person and on phone and drafting of “workshop facilitator guides” – were done and the very first Model Sarbat Khalsa workshop was conducted in a rented campsite in Houston, TX.
What’s “Love” got to do with it? During Valentine’s Day every year I get to reflect on “loving relationships” in a double whammy scenario. Not only is it a commercialized and heavily re-interpreted celebration of romance that has origins in an anniversary of the martyrdom of a Christian saint as well as the Roman holiday Lupercalla (ref: www.history.com), but this time of year is also the birth anniversary of my loving wife.
Vahiguru Ji Ka KhalsaVahiguru Ji Ki Fatih, Today, 1st of Cet, Nanakshahi 548, we Sikhs celebrate the enthronement of our Master, Nanak VII – Guru Harrai Sahib. Any cursory reading of the life of Guru Harrai Sahib will reveal the following about his personality: tender, loving and compassionate. At the same time he kept, as per Guru Hargobind Sahib’s instructions, an army of 2,200 mounted warriors. He was an avid hunter and a great social revolutionary.
