What do Sikhs think about the Political and the Spiritual? - State of the Panth Report #7

Miri comes from Perso-Arabic “Amir” or “Emir” and signals political power. Piri comes from the Perso-Arabic “Pir” and signals spiritual power. Miri-Piri encapsulates the Political-Spiritual doctrine in Sikhi, rooted in both the worldly and the timeless, and in sovereignty beyond nation-states. This report aims to understand and explore how the Miri-Piri doctrine influences the political and spiritual behavior of Sikhs worldwide.

Barah Maha: Savan

The fifth month of Barah Maha is Savan. From mid-July to mid-August, there is a great relief for the agrarian societies that have spent the last few months working in the scorching heat. With the rainy season, beauty arises, and vegetation goes green. Animals are joyous, and humans are drenched in the wonders of the rain. There is cause for celebration. The human-bride’s inquisition hones in on the misalignment between the feel-good celebration of the external season and the feeling inside. How can you enjoy anything when the love of your life is not present? The pleasantry that everyone experiences are daunting to her. Join the human-bride as she seeks discovery of celebration and joy at a time where there is an absence of connection and intimacy.
