Dr. Pritpal Singh serves on SikhRI’s Board of Directors. He facilitates workshops and projects aiming to fight religious and political oppression through reflection, self-introspection, and activism.

“First Vaisakh, a unique event that had never happened before, occurred. The Tenth Sovereign, the Father, Guru Gobind Singh Sahib, inaugurated the Khalsa and then bowed before them to be given the Gift of Amrit. It is unique because, in the history of the world, this had never happened before that the Guru became the discipline,” he says.From now until Vaisakhi, the SikhRI team will reflect and share their perspective of Vaisakhi.

Featuring speakers unique in their backgrounds, countries, and experiences, we hope the “Countdown to Vaisakhi” video series will ignite a spark in you to reflect on your personal connection to Vaisakhi.
