Representing 1984

Join us as we explore the recent rise of literature, art, film, and photography focusing on the anti-Sikh violence of 1984. What is the language of violence? How do we find such language for translating the unspeakable? And who speaks for those who suffer the violence? Our panelists,  Gauri Gill, Sarbpreet Singh, and The Singh Twins, will delve into questions surrounding the representation of 1984.

Barah Maha: Magh

The eleventh month of Barah Maha is Magh, corresponding to the months of mid-January to mid-February. The extreme winter is concluding, and preparation for the upcoming month is commencing. When the coldness leaves, it provides the opportunity to bud. The potential was there, it was just frozen, and now as the weather warms up, the flourishing can happen. In paying more attention to the Guru’s advice, the human-bride, the seeker begins going within and realizes the pilgrimage of IkOankar to be within the heart. This is where, effortlessly or habitually, that state of sahaj develops, and the seeker embraces even more qualities of the One. Her inner being has been transformed into a pilgrimage site, home to her reflection of the Divine virtues. Join the human-bride in her quest for true bliss.

What does it mean to give? – State of the Panth Report #8

As the world becomes more interconnected, we understand how some have an abundance of monetary wealth, and others do not, and the more we understand the various needs unaddressed in our backyards and abroad. People want to give. People need to give. But do we understand what it means to give? This report aims to understand and explore what it means to give in a Sikh context, how giving is conceptualized and understood through Sikh history, and how it is understood and practiced today. The report analyzes ideas conveyed in the Nam-Dan-Isnan (Identifying-Giving-Cleansing) doctrine from a Gurmat (or Guru’s Way) perspective, as inferred from Bani (wisdom), Tavarikh (history), and Rahit (lifestyle).
