Bhakti and Shakti are two sides of the Guru. While deep internal contemplation and the exuberant worldly power are often painted as dichotomous, Sikh history, Gurbani, architecture and art all demonstrate their interwoven and complementary nature.

Bhakti and Shakti are two sides of the Guru. While deep internal contemplation and the exuberant worldly power are often painted as dichotomous, Sikh history, Gurbani, architecture and art all demonstrate their interwoven and complementary nature. What are the modern applications of these fluid concepts? How do we maintain a true connection to all the strength, internal and external that Sikhi affords us?

Watch this conversation with historians and academics Paneet Singh and Harleen Kaur as they look at the theory and application of the concept in our modern journeys.
