Love, Devotion & I

Love is understood as an intense feeling or emotion of deep affection, attachment, commitment, and sacrifice. What is devotion? Is it just love, loyalty, or enthusiasm for the object of our love? Can there be love without score-keeping? Are they two separate entities? Or is it that love and devotion cannot be present without one another? How can these be experienced? In what ways is love an internal sensation or an external activity? How can we come to better understand love and devotion within Gurbani? Join us for a raw and awe-inspiring conversation between Dr. Jaswant Singh and Inni Kaur as they share their wonderings about love and devotion in this live webinar.

Fatherhood & Sikhi | The Sikh Cast

Fathers sometimes underestimate their role. Loving, actively involved fathers contribute to their children’s well-being and development, strengthening their self‑esteem. What's different about being a Sikh father? Being born and raised in Sikh (predominantly Panjabi or Desi cultural backgrounds) may cause fathers to relook at their own childhood experiences and seek guidance. What worked well for their fathers 20 or 30 years ago may not work with the kinds of challenges fathers face today. Our panelists shared their thoughts on whether they are inspired or perhaps intimidated by the strong father figures in our history and much more!
