By
No items found.

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.

Fatherhood & Sikhi

Watch the entire candid conversation with Fathers! Fathers sometimes underestimate their role. Loving, actively involved fathers contribute to their children’s well-being and development, strengthening their self‑esteem. What's different about being a Sikh father? Being born and raised in Sikh (predominantly Panjabi or Desi cultural backgrounds) may cause fathers to relook at their own childhood experiences and seek guidance.

Barah Maha: Asar

Asar is the fourth month of Barah Maha. It is sweltering heat. The earth endures pain and suffering as the sun sucks all of the life from the defenseless vegetation. The heat is a symbol of a human-bride, the seeker who is disconnected from IkOankar. Follow the human-bride as she finds realization in her anxieties and the external pains in her life.

Barah Maha: Jeth

Next is Jeth, a month where the beautiful spring season is transitioning to summer. The heat is arising and the deserts are becoming hot, almost too hot to the point of discomfort. For the human-bride to truly remain connected to IkOankar, it makes sense that they are detached from the world. After all, an individual cannot be at two places at the same time and two loves cannot flourish in the heart simultaneously. When attachment to the world is eliminated, for that is when the human-bride can truly lie in the abode of IkOankar. Watch the video to delve into the complexity of connection between the world, IkOankar, and the human-bride.
