Highlights from the Guru Teghbahadar Sahib: The Benevolent Warrior conference.
Bhai Mani Singh and Baba Dip Singh were leaders, scholars, and warriors. They played significant leadership roles in the community post-Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, keeping the Panth united under challenging circumstances. They were master scholars, some of the greatest in Sikh history, and created a scholarly tradition that still resonates in the community to this day. They were great warriors, fully living up to Guru Gobind Singh Sahib’s standard of the Warrior-Saint. And both sacrificed themselves for the Panth, becoming martyrs whose Shahidi has inspired generations of Sikhs. Watch as we explore the lives and legacy of these two preeminent Khalsa Scholar-Martyrs.
Anupreet Kaur and Jasleen Kaur have a very insightful discussion on the word 'Sahaj'.

Watch the entire conversation on how the Khalsa inauguration on Vaisakhi day in 1699 infused the Sikhs and gave them a structure of ideas and institutions that continue to shape their lives both individually and collectively. Why was the Khalsa revealed by Guru Gobind Singh Sahib? How did it transform the community in the Indian subcontinent and beyond?
