Dr. Jaswant Singh, Director of Gurbani Research at Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI), reflects on Vaisakhi.

“When I think about Vaisakhi, I ask myself why Vaisakhi is important to me. My mind focuses on the word Khalsa. Because Vaisakhi for the Sikhs straight way means the inauguration of the Khalsa….” 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.
