Description: Gurbani is a multi-dimensional source of inspiration, guidance, and insights. Exploring the language, metaphors, and socio-political historical contexts of a Shabad of Guru Nanak, we will examine how Guru Nanak framed the path of Sikhi through practical lessons regarding behavior, politics, and emotions. This workshop creates space for individuals to delve deeply into Gurbani and equip them with tools to interpret Gurbani at an individual level.

Description: Every morning for the last five hundred years, Sikhs have gathered together to sing Asa ki Var. Guru Nanak Sahib (with some Slokhs from Guru Angad Sahib) revealed this Bani to destroy the idea of duality and so that the unity of Ik Oan Kar could reign supreme.

Explore with us as we examine how Guru Sahib tackles the duality of our thoughts; how we separate the Creator from Creation. We will learn how he challenges the duality in our actions, how our inauthenticity and hypocrisy comes in the way of a genuine love for Vahiguru.


Finally we will see how Guru Sahib seeks to expose the duality of our societies. The categories we create between pure and impure, good and bad. Let us try and feel a glimpse of the awe that Guru Ji felt upon seeing a fully connected and unified Divinely infused universe.

Description: Guru Nanak turned the spiritual and political worlds upside by transfusing both ideals into the life of his Sikhs. This tradition was forged by Charan and then, by the Khanda. This workshop will offer insights on how Miri-Piri relate to one of the most fundamental commitments a Sikh can make: receiving Khandey Ki Pahul. To whom do we owe our allegiance? How can we become engaged citizens of the Khalsa Panth? What responsibilities do we have as constiuents of the Akal Takht?
